Astrological Highlights for the Week Ahead
This week we see Vesta entering Sagittarius followed by a beautiful Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus before rounding off the week with the Sun moving into Sagittarius
Vesta enters Sagittarius 16th November 2021 9:04AM (EST) 16th November 2021 2.04PM (GMT)
Vesta got her name from the Roman goddess of home, family, and fertility. She was usually depicted as a sacred fire, which burned in a temple placed in the Roman forum. This fire was considered the protector of the Roman people and needed to be kept burning at all times. It was kept alive by the Vestal Virgins, the priestesses of Vesta.
In astrological terms, the asteroid Vesta reveals how we choose to confront our issues arising at work, or regarding our devotion to something. This can be a cause or a person. It tells us what we sacrifice and our integrity, as well as any issues we have surrounding intimacy and restraint.
Vesta in Sagittarius is optimistic, enthusiastic and adventurous. It is independent, idealistic, and a staunch defender of beliefs A truth seeker. Be mindful of Sagittarius’s more flirty, flighty tendencies.
Now would be an excellent time to do some work on renewing your faith, or finding a new faith. To look at what you really care about and to work on any potential intimacy issues we have with ourselves and others.

The highlight of the week, this Full Moon carries with it something a little bit special as it’s actually also a Partial Lunar Eclipse in Taurus This Full Moon brings to a close issues that were set in motion back in mid-May, 2018, with the New Moon in Taurus, making this the PERFECT opportunity to close any Taurus themed issues that have been recurring since May 2018.
This is also the first eclipse of a set occurring along the Taurus-Scorpio axis. There will be a Solar Eclipse in Taurus in April 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio (Taurus’ opposite sign) in May 2022, a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio in October 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in November 2022, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio in May 2023, and finally, a Lunar Eclipse in Taurus in October 2023.
Since Taurus is ruled by Venus the Planet of Love, it’s energy can be very romantic, sensual and affectionate. It is a sentimental and warm sign.
It rules the 2nd house so carries with it a material flavour. Finances, wealth and possessions are key themes to be aware of at this time.
Tying all of these elements together, it would be fitting to spend some time meditating on what our financial circumstances with our loved ones have looked like over the last 3 and half years. What were the key themes you would like to get closure on and leave in the past? Is there anything you want to bring into the future?
Decide what you want to release and do it during this Full Moon End the recurring problems that have been eating at you!
Activities under this Full Moon:
- Meditate and revisit old journals to remind yourself of where you were 3 and a half years ago. What do you need to let go?
- Fire Ritual - Burn those things you don’t want to bring forward now; focus on those with themes surrounding partnerships loved ones, finances and / or a combination of all these themes!
- Taurus loves good food treat yourself to something delicious
