From Ascension Glossary

Fixed star Vega, Alpha Lyrae, is a massive 0.0 magnitude pale sapphire star in the Handle of the Lyre, Lyra Constellation. The traditional name Vega was originally Wega, which came from Arabic word wāqi‘ which means falling or landing. This in turn comes from an-nasr al-wāqi‘ which means The Falling Eagle.

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.

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.

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]
