Fixed star Vega is of the nature of Venus and Mercury. It gives beneficence, ideality, hopefulness, refinement and changeability, and makes its natives grave, sober, outwardly pretentious and usually lascivious.
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.
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 horizon, in houses 6 or 12). In natal charts this can indicate a poetical and harmonious nature.
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.
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.
Vega rules the back of the right knee in the human body. This position is associated with the ego. It creates fulfillment though the ego and can be considered as masculine pride brought forward from a former life into this incarnation.
