Fixed Star Vega Astrology

Fixed star Vega gives beneficence, ideality, hopefulness, refinement, and changeability, and makes its natives grave, sober, outwardly pretentious, and usually lascivious. It is of the nature of Venus and Mercury (idealistic, psychic, handsome, neat, lovable, refined, genteel, intelligent.)

Behenian Symbol Vega Star Vulture Cadens  Vega is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a vulture, hen or traveler. It makes the wearer magnanimous and proud, and gives power over beasts and devils. Rules chrysolite, succory and fumitary. [1]

The star Vega (Wega) is one of the brightest stars in the heavens. It is definitely of the nature of Venus. In classical times it was said to be a particularly good omen when Vega was matutine subsolar (conjunct Sun above the horizon, in houses 6 or 12). In natal charts, this can indicate a poetical and harmonious nature. [2]

Arabic for The Falling Eagle, Vega is the principal star in constellation Lyra. The brightest fixed star of the northern sky has a Venus nature with a blend of Neptune and Mercury. The Babylonians called Vega the Star of the Queen of Life. In a good cosmic configuration, Vega is supposed to give artistic talents, especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life. [3]

Whatever other troubles Orpheus may have had, he was certainly popular for his music, and popularity with one’s fellows is what Vega marks on a horoscope if it is the least bit well aspected. It is a Venus-Mercury star, and the only note of caution to go with it is to remember that popularity is a tool for living happily and honestly with one’s fellow beings, not shamelessly exploiting their welcome. [4]

Vega star rules the back of the right knee in the human body. This position is associated with the ego. It creates fulfillment through the ego and can be considered as masculine pride brought forward from a former life into this incarnation. [6]

Constellation Lyra

The Harp is like Venus and Mercury. It is said to give an harmonious, poetical and developed nature, fond of music and apt in science and art, but inclined to theft. It preserves frenzied and mad people.[1]

The Lyre is an airy constellation that has a most marked influence on the weather, at least according to the classicists and the astrological principles of that era. Its stars traditionally have the nature of Venus and Mercury, but Venus and Jupiter would be a better representation according to the spectra of the brightest stars in the group. [2]

20th Arabic Manzil – Al Na’am

Helps the taming of wild beasts, strengthening of prisons, destroys the wealth of societies and compels a man to come to a certain place.

With Moon: Build, ask favors but do not marry.

8th Chinese Xiù – 斗 (Dǒu) Dipper

Associated with recompense, satisfaction, and completion, filling up, finishing, and rewards for tasks that have been fulfilled. It indicates every type of good fortune.

Favorable for wine-making activities, opening trenches and work of heavy physical labor. This mansion is also conducive to government officials, employees, and students.

Fixed Star Vega Conjunctions

Ascendant conjunct Vega: Those who are born when this star is rising will be just, upright, and miserly, trained for all duties of the court, avengers of crimes, in charge of public courts and inquiries. But if Saturn is in aspect they will be torturers and executioners who persecute evil men with zeal… if Mars is in that degree, will be adulterers but have grace and personal charm. They corrupt their friends’ wives but are never detected in their crimes. They earn a great income from some skill but they are allotted wives who are known for adultery. They die a sudden death. [5]

High success is promised. One can find Vega in corresponding aspects in birth charts of statesmen, politicians, persons of importance and influential persons. [3]

Sirhan Sirhan 0°54′ (and Moon)

Midheaven conjunct Vega: High success is promised. One can find Vega in corresponding aspects in birth charts of statesmen, politicians, persons of importance and influential persons. [3]

MacKenzie Scott 1°43′, Serena Williams 2°15′

Descendant conjunct Vega: If this star is found in its setting, the natives will be publicly tortured, burned in fire, or die on the wheel, especially if Mars and Saturn are in aspect. [5]

Robert De Niro 0°53′, Michael Jordan 1°41′, Albert Einstein 1°58′, Josef Mengele 2°10′

Part of Fortune conjunct Vega: Jeane Dixon 1°32′

Sun conjunct Vega: Critical, abrupt, reserved, unpopular, fleeting honors, influential position, insincere friends. If with Mars also, above the earth, and the Moon be with Procyon, death from the bite of a mad dog. [1]

Jeane Dixon 0°07′, Marilyn Manson 0°40′

Moon conjunct Vega: Public disgrace, probably through forgery, loss through writings, some ill-health, success in business, gain through an annuity or pension. If a malefic be with Scheat, violent death. [1]

A tendency for occult and mysticism may be given. [3]

Johnny Depp 0°59′, Sirhan Sirhan 1°31′ (and Ascendant), Harvey Weinstein 2°01′ Rudolf Hess 2°28′

Mercury conjunct Vega: Suspicious, reserved, bitter, thwarted ambitions, double-dealing, secret enemies in influential positions, trouble with the mother, loss in business. [1]

Ellen DeGeneres 0°29′, Brad Pitt 1°18′, Pope Francis I 2°36′

Venus conjunct Vega: Hardhearted, cold, miserly, ill-health, ugliness or deformity. [1]

Said to pave the way to riches and fame. However, if other influences play a part, this wealth may be lost again. [3]

Michael Jordan 1°35′

Mars conjunct Vega: Scientific interests, unpopular opinions, moral courage, favorable for gain. [1]

(2° orb): These persons can function with this point in a dual manner. This is somewhat difficult to grasp. From the positive standpoint, these individuals are given an extra energy to perform tasks that require strength and physical agility. They test their physical endurance in the mountains by running up and down mountainsides and over rocks and crevices. They are the mountain and tree climbers and persons who enjoy swimming marathons. They generally have several endurance objectives as a challenge to their physical stamina; but more often than not, they are found in mountainous areas climbing rocks and boulders to get from one point to another.

Well-balanced persons with this position would do very well in testing their physical endurance; however, those with difficult aspects to this point can suffer an accident that would damage the right knee and thus keep them from enjoying their sport of endurance. This, therefore, does take some of the egotism out of the individual. Many take on physical endurance as a challenge and as a sport, but there are those who are so determined to gratify their ego that they damage their body. This is “masculine pride”. [5]

Frida Kahlo 0°37′, Katy Perry 0°40′, Nancy Spungen 2°19′, Edgar Cayce 2°21′

Jupiter conjunct Vega: Loss through legal affairs, favorable for gain, danger of imprisonment. [1]

Said to pave the way to riches and fame. However, if other influences play a part, this wealth may be lost again. [3]

Karl Marx 0°10′, Margaret Thatcher 0°13′

Saturn conjunct Vega: Strong passions, opinionated, original, many Mercurial difficulties, reputation suffers through wrongful accusations, trouble with superiors, domestic difficulties, few, if any, children, latter half of life more favorable, sudden death. [1]

(0°30′ orb): This brings out the opposite effect of Mars at this point in that it is deflation of masculine pride. They do not get the help necessary to rise to the top. They are not energized sufficiently to participate in sports of endurance but they do appreciate the degree of perseverance by others who accomplish physical feats. They enjoy watching others in competitive sports of endurance, especially the cross-country races requiring great physical stamina.

There is a health problem connected with this degree in that the right knee requires support at times. They do not have sufficient control over the knee which remains in a bent position. The tissues in the back of the knee that controls the bending of the knee tends to collapse, this requiring support of this tissue. An elastic band around the knee can take care of this problem. [5]

Louis XVI 0°33′, Richard Ramirez 0°58′, Sean Penn 2°17′

Uranus conjunct Vega: Critical, abrupt, reserved, strong passions, materialistic, many disappointments, domestic sorrow, much gain and loss, many open and secret enemies, accidental or violent death. [1]

Neptune conjunct Vega: Timid, fond of music, occult interests, practical and scientific mind, associated with occult societies, material success, home may be broken up, liable to accidents, natural death in old age especially when Mars is in favorable aspect. [1]

A tendency for occult and mysticism may be given. [3]

  1. Hi Jamie, natally Vega is placed 14 Capricorn, but this is an intercepted along with Cancer. Transit Pluto is 15 Capricorn. Is there anything interesting about these placements? Asc is 25 Sag, MH is 29 Libra if that helps. Thank you.

  2. Thank you, no I don’t think anything else is conjunct Vega. Closest is South Truth Node at 0 Aqu. All planets are between Virgo and Pisces. Nothing in Capricorn. What is interesting for the Butterfly Cluster? I read the post but did not see the relation. My eyes are good, just started using reading glasses a few years ago, and they are the lowest still at 1.25.

    • The main influence on that star on your Ascendant will be the sharp mind and ability to perceive things others cannot.

  3. Hi Jamie! I love the both of them Vega and Lyra – both conjucted to my Cap sun in 9th house. Yes, I’m in music world from childhood and up and running in music biz. Feeling heavy protection both of them in my chart and all three are sextiling my 6th house- yes! Neptune. Another- out of topic theme- please add this new site to FB astrology feed:

    • Strange I didn’t have her in the list already. Unfortunately, Facebook has changed things so I can’t add new pages to the list. I nticed it a few weeks ago when you sent me a fb message, forgot to let you know. Sun conjunct Uranus makes one easily distracted I am told.

  4. VEGA and PLUTO oppose America’s sun. FALLING EAGLE INDEED. And the bite of a mad dog prediction? Who in the PENTAGON decided to shoot up Assad’s 62 Elite soldiers? That was a coup on the WHITE HOUSE. 911 had MOON JUPITER conjunct on America’s sun. Your interpretation, Jamie?

    • I will need some time to look into it but what you say sure sounds right to me. It is now half a Saturn return since 9/11.

  5. Anyone else notice that 6th of January is the day of the three kings/ wise men, and they followed a bright star, and Vega is the brightest star?

  6. Saturn conjunct Vega:

    6 February 2019 (in orb from Jan 13 to Mar 06)

    2 August 2019 and
    2 November 2019 (in orb from June 25 to Dec 03)

    • Hi Jamie, during the Saturn Sextile Neptune on January 31st, 2019, I read it conjucts with Vega. I also read the following: “Fixed star Vega gives beneficence, ideality, hopefulness, refinement and changeability, and makes its natives grave, sober, outwardly pretentious and usually lascivious. [2] Robson also said Saturn conjunct Vega: Strong passions, opinionated, original, many Mercurial difficulties, reputation suffers through wrongful accusations, trouble with superiors, domestic difficulties, few, if any, children, latter half of life more favorable, sudden death.” Unfortunately for me, I’m having surgery on Jan. 31, 2019 and am now in a total panic about the last 2 words “sudden death”. I’m hoping you can explain to me if this means that everyone is at higher risk of sudden death on the 31st, or if this is more connected to when I’m born? I am new to this, and now extremely scared and wanting to cancel my surgery, although it’s need to prevent potential life-threatening complications. Thank sin advance 🙂

  7. When I went to the Astronomy Club’s meeting in the mountains on the new moon (of Taurus), one star of all of them that stood out to me and it was very beautiful. I could see the various bright colors on it and its twinkling dance. I asked Daniel the astronomer about that star and which one was it, he was kind enough and swooped his five foot scope towards it and said… let have a look.

    He said it was the fixed star VEGA and when I looked through the telescope the colors were the same ones I saw with the naked eye. Vega before Kings ruled was and still is a Vulture and the oldest Vulture Goddess is Nehkbet of Egypt. Nekhbet, an archaic vulture goddess later became Mut when leadership was focused more on Gods. Originally, Nekhbet was the first ancient matriarch along with her sister Wadjet the Cobra. The two ruled both northern Egypt and southern Egypt and the middle world and the upperworld.

    The archaic and even pre-patriarchal rites of death and rebirth come from this Vulture Goddess, ruled by Vega and that spread into other countries in ancient times. She was also the oldest know oracle at the necropolis. Her wings were at every temple doorway and she is the Elder Isis, the Black Isis (Night Goddess).

  8. Hello, I was wondering what a bad aspect on vega would be? I have vega 15°06′ conjuctng my MC 15°27′, plus my Jupiter at 12°55′ (Jupiter is also conjuncting my Venus which is 10°49′).

    I am aspiring in entertainment, acting, I have built some credits. I am worried about the negative part of Vega, the full rest of my life has been an uphill battle already.

    So uh, yeah, I know nothing of fixed stars, I would love to hear if my Vega is well aspected.

    I should tell you all my planets are Sagittarius, Capricorn, Scorpio amend aquarius, just my lilith in aries is 8°


  9. The Heliocentric view of the Inferior Mercury Occultation, May 9, 2016, midnight UTC, shows Pluto 15Cap53 conjunct Vega 15Cap33, and Jupiter 22Vir59 quincunx Eris 22Ari59,
    Venus 00Tau13 !! peregrine

  10. I’m confused by the information on this page. The sections of Astrology and Conjunctions contradict each other. Vega starts off sounding like a benefic then in the Conjunctions sections, it seems like no good can come of any conjunction. Can you explain? Thank you.
