The Asteroid Vesta On Scorpio 21: A Soldier Resisting Orders
The asteroid Vesta is on an interesting degree: Scorpio 21: OBEYING THEIR CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS
It seems that the ‘feminine’ component of our selves does not want to continue the warring – we want to have peace. We want to follow our ‘Conscience’ – whether that leads us away from things we would normally do or support, OR, into a feeling of having to step up and fight for something because it is the right thing to do.
Saturn will be on this degree very soon – bringing a further dimension to it all…
This Symbol shows someone who’s “Conscience” stops them from following a certain course of action, staying with a project or relationship when they’d rather leave, or, someone not prepared to compromise their values to do something that society says they must do. You may find yourself in situations where what you are expected to do is against your inner values, conscience or how you see your future unfolding. You may at times in your life have to make the difficult choice between allegiance to duty and your own inner truth. True freedom can only be found when one faces situations with a sense of integrity and prepared to face the consequences, be they positive or negative.
Personal morality. Doing what one’s conscience dictates. Longing for a return to a state of love and innocence. Love that restrains. Not following orders. Going AWOL.
The Caution: Cowardice or lack of courage to act. Not doing what is expected. ‘Going over the top’ in a wild and crazy way. Freezing and confining emotions. Tantrums.
