Pause for a moment in stillness, light rose incense, and let the aroma fill your space as you take a chance to honor your inner sacredness. This is the divinity within you and is your connection to the universe. As you lean into reigniting your spiritual flame, you can see with greater clarity what you are meant to commit to and what is connected to your soul’s purpose.
Asteroid Vesta, ruler of your spiritual flame, sacredness, and all you devote yourself to, shifts into the water sign of Cancer on Wednesday, September 13. Vesta reunites you with your inner truth, yet this isn’t done through sheer will or boisterousness, but instead, the quiet salvation that reminds you all you must do is be yourself to attract what you desire.
In Cancer, Vesta helps you align more deeply with your emotional needs and those of whatever pursuit or relationship you feel called to honor.
Today truly represents a changing of the guards as Vesta shifts into Cancer, while asteroid Pallas, ruler of wisdom and knowledge, moves into Libra, encouraging diplomacy, justice, and cooperation.
While Libra Season is almost upon you, Vesta’s energy will help you make the most of this time, as you need to return to your sacredness and truth before being able to compromise or create fairness outside of you. This is the balance that teaches self-sacrifice is never a part of abundance or even manifesting as you need to ensure the one person, the one thing, you never abandon is yourself.
Your rituals can be done at any time of the day to harness the energy of Vesta in Cancer. However, it is a divine angel number at 7:22 pm EST, so if you can perform your manifestation rituals and say your affirmation around that time, it will incorporate greater strength in your manifestations.
Cancer rules the essential oils and herbal properties of cardamon, mint, fennel, grapefruit, and balsam, so combining these elements along with crystals such as moonstone and rose quartz will align you more with the energy of Vesta, creating a greater sense of embodiment as you honor not just your sacredness but that of this intuitive water sign.
