“I believe in nothing, everything is sacred. I believe in everything, nothing is sacred.”
–Tom Robbins, Novelist, strong sexual themes, Vesta conjunct Chiron in Gemini
The asteroid Vesta is associated with the mythology of the ancient Vestal Virgins and both Scorpio and Virgo. Prominent Vesta in the natal chart is associated with the importance of sexuality, at both extremes, abstinence and promiscuity. It is not a sexuality devoid of morality but a sexuality charged with a higher dedication. Sex takes on an importance that is sacred in some regard.

Elsa’s previous blog on Neptune really got me thinking. If you don’t have a strong internal locus of self-value, if you don’t believe you are worth receiving good treatment you will accept poor treatment.

“God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.”
Self aggrandizement and vanity are not Narcissism. To understand the reality of Narcissism you must understand its root, the rejection of the true self. When Narcissus looked in the pool and fell in thrall with his reflection this was not self-love. To understand this archetypal myth one must understand the nature of mirrored reflection. The reflection is not the thing.
