Vesta in Mythology

Vesta is one of the four main asteroids used in Astrology. She is known as Hestia in Greek mythology and is the sister of Zeus and the last born of Kronus and Rhea. When she grew up to be a beautiful maiden, Apollon and Poseidon each pursued her in marriage,  but she refused them and asked Zeus to let her remain an eternal virgin. She is obviously a smart goddess and knew even at a young age that relationships take time and can be a mess at times, and why add to the existing drama of other goddesses!  Anyway, so Zeus obliged and in turn Vesta was given the task of keeping the sacred fire of life burning. Keeping the fire going was important in Roman times lest something bad happens to the people. So although she chose not to get married and have children, she was revered as the protector of home and families and was called the goddess of fire and hearth. She is frequently depicted holding a kettle in one hand and cut flowers in the other hand.  Her “chastity” is not about sexual chastity but it’s about not belonging to any one man and using the energy of procreation to focus on other causes.  Vesta’s energy differs from Asteroid Juno which is about equality in partnerships.
