“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 the word wāqi‘ which means falling or landing. This in turn became nasr al-wāqi‘ which means The Falling Eagle.”


The rise of the Weka – NZ’s very own fallen eagle – dedicated to eradicating all miniature snakes and anything else that creepeth on the land, but won’t say no to the odd cheese and onion sandwich once his daily work is done. 

“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.
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. “
