Vesta enters Scorpio on November 15th, 2017. Absolute focus becomes even more absolute, piercing the shadows and drilling down into all that's forbidden.
Here is obsessive concentration on a secret, psychological issue or intimacy. There can be a devotion to dark matters - all that is taboo (from sexual issues to death) feeds the sacred flame. An obsession can become your fuel.
Vesta in Scorpio encourages you to honour what's darkest, including your Shadow. Note that this does not mean allowing your Shadow to overcome you. Rather, you're looking at what you never wanted to accept (or what scares other people/scares you) and committing yourself to understanding and working with it.
Vesta in this sign can turn the "sinful" into sacred, with the elevation of a forbidden issue into something with purpose and focus. What happens when you focus Scorpio's massive power and drop your fear/judgment? Think about that.
But, distorted Vesta in Scorpio's rigid limits can lock out anything you can't control. If you find yourself steadfastly denying something that's too uncomfortable to consider, that's Vesta. Hint: you're meant to look at what you've been denying.
Vesta will exit Scorpio for Sagittarius on January 14th, 2018.
