What is an astrological Vertex? The Vertex is not a planet; it's an intersection of the ecliptic with the prime vertical (Nadir) in the West. In an astrological chart, the Vertex always appears in the Western Hemisphere of the chart, usually through houses 5~8. Because the location of the Vertex is in the western half of the chart, the general nature of the Vertex is about the "relating" principle. The house the Vertex is located defines the types of relationships you seek or draw into your life and how you utilize the principle of relating in all of your relationships. Vertex connections are also also present in "event" or "accident" charts and are triggered by transits and progressions.
I love using the Vertex in chart synastry and compatibility. If you look back to significant people and events in your life, you'll likely find connections to your Vertex and Anti-vertex, the point opposite the Vertex. In some instances, the energy seems to be similar to that of the Nodal axis. However, the Vertex, unlike the Nodal axis, doesn't store past memory, talents, or abilities. It serves to draw the necessary people, events, and learning experiences into our lives. When it does, those people and experiences are significant in some way, as indicated by the house and sign. There is a synchronistic quality to these contacts.
"Be careful what you wish for....."
Where is your Vertex? Order an astrological consultation for yourself or as a gift for a friend or family member. I'll only require your date, time, and place of birth. I'm available for consultations and readings 7 days via phone, e-mail or in-person.
