Vesta in Gemini March 21 – June 3

From March 21st until June 3rd the asteroid Vesta will be transiting Gemini.

To understand what this means on an individual and collective level let’s take a look at the archetype of Vesta and the symbolism of Gemini, which will be home until June 3rd 2020.

As we embark on this journey of understanding these energetic influences it’s key to remember that the planets are not doing anything to us, but instead they are currents of energy flowing all around us. When we know which way the current is flowing we are able to choose what direction to swim. To a certain extent we have the power of freewill. Having an awareness of these cosmic cycles can help us to decide what to do.

 

Vesta in Gemini is a Feeling

 

The asteroid Vesta is associated with the Goddess of home and family. When we read the word “home” we can of course associate this with the physical space we live in, but we can also imagine home as a place within ourselves. Throughout history this Goddess was often depicted as a fire within a temple. She is the place to commune, connect and honour each other.

Imagine a campfire with family gathered around it, sharing stories and singing songs. Roasting food and enjoying the temple that is nature. This scene very much depicts Vesta. She’s more than a physical place; she’s a sensation of warmth and feeling safe.

She’s the center of ourselves; our inner fire. She’s the sacred place where we convene and connect to all aspects of who we are. We could imagine her within our hearts or within our core. She is that burning passion or that motivation that gets us out into the world.

The mythology of Vesta depicts her as a virgin which doesn’t necessarily need to be taken in a literal sense. We can think of the virgin archetype as one who is pure and committed to themselves. Vesta doesn’t reach outside herself of depend on anyone else. It’s about that inner connection and commitment. 

 

Vesta in Gemini is Finding Peace in the Paradox

 

From a collective sense, the energy of Gemini is like the wind. It’s a very stimulated air sign energy. It’s a short attention span or that feeling of a pinball machine. It’s seeing something shiney and getting distracted. Gemini energy activates our minds and intellect; in a lot of ways it makes our heads spin. 

That windy energy is blowing all over our planet and will continue to do so for some time. We are embarking on Gemini influenced times as the North Node will transit Gemini in May along with a Venus retrograde this spring. We are entering very stimulated and heightened times that call for a chance of some mind games. 

 

Vesta in Gemini May Have Our Heads Spinning

 

We are entering a season that is asking us to embrace a light hearted energy during some of the heaviest times. This is the paradox of life. We are embarking on a journey of finding the light within the dark, along with the dark amongst the light. We are living and breathing this paradox. This is a lot for our human selves and can have our heads spinning.

Vesta is setting the stage supporting us in feeling comfortable within our minds and being. She wants us to find that center within ourselves; to find that inner fire and cultivate it. 

When we think about the elements of fire and air we can see that they can work together really well. When we have a small fire in order to get it going we have to fan it. If we think about it, these winds of change can help to build up that fire within us. 

This dynamic can also spread like a forest fire and get out of hand; which is why it is essential to tend to that inner campfire. To become committed to our sacred home within.

Our role is to build that fire inside ourselves, commit to finding our center and prioritize that space within us. This transit allows safety to grow and elevate our sense of self. However, like any fire we have to be hyper aware of where the fire is at.

Even though it may sound simple the energy of Gemini thrives when it prioritizes fun. When it is free to explore information. When it’s mind is open and curious. That’s the energy that will support our sense of safety and that home within ourselves. Doing what we can to stimulate ourselves intellectually can help to move this energy. Trying to stay the same and avoid a shift in our mindsets will leave us feeling afraid.

 

Vesta in Gemini Asks us to Find the Fire Within

 

We are asked to find a center which is intense amidst the chaos of these transits. We are asked to make light of things while still getting real and facing the facts. Information is the medicine. Finding the information, seeking the wisdom and remembering to check in with ourselves as to how the information has us feeling.

Energies are shifting. The external world is changing. Our inner selves have become amplified. We have so much power within us waiting to be harnessed. 

We all have a sacred fire deep down and now is the time to tend to it.

Mercury Moves Direct

March 9 4:49 am UT

This is a welcomed shift from the foggy and confusing astrology transits we’ve been immersed in. Mercury retrograde began on February 9th 2020 and since then a lot has been up in the air. This change of pace will allow us to wrap our minds around things. We will begin to get a better idea of how to move forward with our ideas, dreams and intentions. 

 

Mercury Enters Pisces

March 16 8:42 am UT 

Mercury is the planet of logic and rationality and while it travels through Pisces from March 16th until April 11th. During this time we are asked to remember not everything in life needs to make logical sense. For example, we don’t need to understand the biology of our cells in order to heal a cut on our skin. Whether we “get it” or not our skin will heal. This is a time period of embracing the magic life has to offer, even if it makes absolutely no sense. 

 

Uranus Sextile True Node

March 19th 10:43 pm UT

Uranus is the planet of change and innovation. The True Node represents what we are collectively learning and heading towards. This astrology transit may shake things up. Here we are asked to let go of control, be open to new directions and be open to surprises.

 

Equinox: Sun Enters Aries, Aries Season Begins

March 19th 4:49 am UT

When the Sun shifts into Aries we experience a new zodiac year. Although we are nearly 3 months into 2020 we could still feel as if we’re caught up in the old or in a phase of purging. The Equinox is a fresh start. It’s a time to shake off the old and welcome the new. It’s a time of envisioning what we want to paint on the canvas that is our lives. 

 

Vesta Enters Gemini

March 21 6:06 am UT

Vesta is an asteroid named after the Goddess of home and hearth. Her energy is associated with taking care of ourselves, our family and where we land at the end of the day. Gemini’s energy is about being stimulated and having fun. This transit is asking us to be open to expanding our definition of safety and to enjoy ourselves at home. We can also imagine that home is a place inside of us. As we connect to our inner space, may we flutter around in true Gemini fashion; taking home with us wherever we go.

 

Saturn Enters Aquarius

March 21 4:58 am UT

This is a big deal because Saturn only shifts signs every 2.5 years. The last time this change occurred was at the end of 2017. What have we learned since then? What have we accomplished? Saturn’s energy likes to assign lessons and with this shift comes new adventures in the area of Aquarius. Aquarius is all about being of service and helping the greater good. This will be in focus over the coming years as Saturn travels through Aquarius until 2023.

 

New Moon in Aries Season

March 24 10:28 am UT

A New Moon is a time of fresh beginnings. It’s a time when the Sun and the Moon align and this acts as a sort of reset button. The Sun represents our conscious awareness and the Moon our subconscious. When the two come together on a New Moon we have an opportunity to set our sails and head in a new direction.

 

Mars Enters Aquarius

March 30th 8:43 pm UT 

Mars is the planet of action and it infuses a dose of “making-it-happen” wherever it transits. Aqaurius is the constellation of the greater good, helping the whole and embracing our inner humanitarians. As Mars transits through Aquarius from March 30th to May 13th we are invited to explore how our individual actions can make an impact on the collective.
