The asteroids Vesta, Juno and Psyche reflect the inner longing for mystical union with the beloved – whether this is with the Self, or the Deity, or the ‘external other,’ whereby relationship becomes a path to spiritual at-one-ness. Using the chart of Saint Teresa of Avila, a 16th century Spanish nun, mystic, ecstatic, and religious reformer who faced charges from the Inquisition, Demetra explores how these asteroids, and the planet Venus, relate to the relationship choices that were available to a strongly sensual independent woman of her time.
In this fascinating lecture, Demetra also tracks the secondary progressions of these asteroids in the context of the unfolding path of Teresa's soul journey towards the Spiritual Marriage.
