The Vertex, Anti-Vertex and Fate

Every time I am privileged to do a chart, I learn new things. I stretch myself. In my last professional chart, three new things came up for me. One was the asteroid Circe, which is completely fascinating as she can beguile men as a temptress. The other was the vertex and the anti-vertex and the subject of fate. This article will be a work in progress, as I research this subject.

I can start of by saying that the Vertex is a fated point, unlike any other point in the chart. I made the mistake of treating it like the Ascendant and I was 100% wrong. The vertex shows what fate will bring you, both by what is in your OWN natal and by looking at your synastry with key people in your life. I already knew about the synastry part of the vertex. I have an article on it. I have seen it played out. For example, if one person is a spiritual messenger to another, the spiritual messengers Neptune will be an exact conjunction to the other person’s Vertex. I have seen this in my own life. Find your Vertex on Then, start checking synastries and see what you bring to people and they to you.

The Anti-vertex point in your own chart shows more of YOUR contribution to your life and your fate, in that sense. This is what makes the Anti-vertex more like your ASC than the vertex. The Anti-vertex is YOUR contribution to fate. The vertex is OTHER people’s and life’s contribution to your fate.

Let me give some examples. I want to say that I am a beginner with the Anti-vertex and the vertex’s role in the natal chart, so please add anything to the Comment Section and know that I am writing from the vantage point of a newbie.

One woman had Nessus and Child conjunct the Vertex. She had Venus and Union conjunct the Anti-Vertex. That was one of the reasons that she contacted me for a chart reading. She was afraid that Nessus conjunct the Vertex would make her an abusive person. I did not know how to deal with this issue, so started researching this subject and that is how I came to write this article. My conclusion was that Nessus conjunct the Vertex would make abuse come to HER, rather than she being the abuser. Child conjunct the vertex may make for abused children coming to her. Strangely enough, this is her passion in life i.e to be an oasis for abused children. Again, Astrology hits it on the mark.

From her Venus conjunct Union conjunct the Anti-vertex, my conclusion was that she brought love and the desire for a permanent union to her world. This was the case, as we

With the vertex and anti-vertex, new vistas of the chart have opened for me. As in all Astrological things, I need your help to tell me how things work in your chart. I await your comments.

    What if someone’s juno sits on my vertex? And which has more punch: vertex or anti-vertex (I’ve read mixed opinions on this.)

  2. amiannMarie

    Wow! Thanks! I am very interested in the vertex. I found out that my vertex is in Scorpio. I am so excited because I always attract Scorpios for some reason. I am also interested in the juno conjunct vertex and juno conjunct sun in synastry too.Thanks!

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      Juno conj Vertex should mean that you will attract loyal and devoted love.
      Juno conj Sun is wonderful as it would be a soul mate aspect in my opinion.

  3. amiannMarie

    Ok, awsome! Thanks! Yeah sun conjunct vertex in synastry. I was interested in this aspect. I was just wondering what was the meaning. I would love to learn more about the vertex and the different aspects in general. Thanks for replying 😉

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      You are most welcome Marie dear. Who is the Sun and who is the vertex. I would say that the Sun brings confidence, an ego boost and ego strength to the vertex person. I did an article or actually few on the vertex.

  4. amiannJim

    Ami what happens when you have Vertex conjuncting both Venus and Chiron?
    Does this aspect will make love come to me? but since its in a conjunction with chiron make the love that i recieve bring me some kind of pain too?

  5. amiannmaria

    Hi, I would like to know.. does the contacts Venus/Vertex bring physical attraction?
    Specifically.. Vertex trine Venus!
    Thank you, M.

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      I have not dealt with anything but conjunctions with the vertex. The planet person brings THAT planet to the vertex person. With Venus, it would be love. If a trine would do the same thing, I would not do more than 1 degree. You are very welcome, Maria dear. I wish I knew more. Venus does not bring physical attraction as much as a purer kind of love of the person’s way of being imo

      1. amiannmaria

        Thank you! 🙂
        ok.. I was thinking that the Vertex point was similar to the Lilith black moon..
        so, Vertex conjunct Venus … almost like Venus conjunct Lilith, (in a synastry I have both)
        thanks for your answer!

      Welcome Astrid. The Vertex is what people bring to you. The anti vertex is what you bring to others. The Reiki seems amazing. Please, tell me about it.

    Hi Ami.
    I cant log in for some reason but i wanted to ask about the vertex in synastry…
    I spoke to you a while ago about this intense reaction i have around this girl, and I was wondering if you could tell me something from the chart like what she thinks of me, and am i wasting my time as I catch her going out her way to look at me, and then shes awkward and rude the next minute which i just find funny. Im a cancer, shes a scorpio.
    Her vertex conjunct my sun in her 8th house.
    My vertex conjuncts her north node in her 5th house. + we have black moon lilith conjunct venus double whammy!!

  8. amiannadele

    ok, is there anything you can help me on with the aspects i mentioned above? like how important is the vertex aspect should i ignore this, cause i feel like its gripped me and shouting in my face this person is important. much love x

      1. amiannamiann Post author

        I think these vertex things show a fated relationship. Why don’t you post the charts in my Forum so we can look at everything though as the vertex is one part, only, and one can’t base a whole chart reading on the vertex.

        1. amiannAnderssen

          What does it mean when a person’s planet conjuncts your anti-vertex? Does it mean the same as being conjunct the vertex? Thank you!

          1. amiannamiann Post author

            No, it is quite different, Anderssen. The antivertex is the trait the native brings TO the world. The Anti vertex is what others will bring to him. If your planet conjuncts the Anti vertex, you would bring the nature of the planet to that person and she, in turn, would bring that to her life.

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      Oh dear

      It is automated. I could ask my web designer tomorrow or create a new account if you have another e mail, perhaps. Sorry for all the trouble 🙁

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      I have been so swamped lately, Adele dear. I have not been able to check out the Forum for a few days. I will be there as soon as I can and I am very, very sorry! I know you went through a lot of effort to post your chart <3

  9. amiannStephanie

    I’ve met someone, his vertex conjuncts my uranus (which is his chart ruler). My vertex conjuncts his Jupiter (which is my chart ruler.) Also his anti vertex opposes my my moon, my anti vertex opposes his sun. Could you please help me on these aspects?

  10. amiannadele

    I know that vertex/anti vertex touching anothers angle/planet has alot to do with transits, ive been hunting high and low to find a ‘first meeting chart’ because i think it would hold alot of answers. EG- Out of the blue (vertex), i first met my crush during sun/venus in scorpio season, opposing her descendant (partner) in my 8th house (sex)! she is a scorpio sun & venus. im still learning though lol…

    1. amiannStephanie

      Our vertexes are actually touching planets, not on transits. How do I do a first meeting chart? We also have vertex in a composite chart. I truly believe that this person is a twin flame…we were destined to meet for a specific purpose.

        1. amiannStephanie

          We have moon trine moon. My moon is in his 12th house which aspect his Chiron. Venus squares venus, but sextiles Mars DW. Our Plutos are conjunct.

          1. amiannStephanie

            He’s is at 24.11 degrees in Virgo; mine at 22.56 in Taurus. Both 5th house moons.

    Hello Amian
    your articles are always so interesting ! its always a pleasure to come here and read

    Numerous astrologers in France remain asserting that Vertex has no importance….
    HA HA HA Iam laughing ! For I AM the living PROOF that Vertex is something like a gateway through which you have fated encounters in your life (good or bad fate) and this is TRUE

    One day, a long time ago, as I was working in Dublin, I had a FATED meeting with a guy I will name X . He was just there in Dublin for 1 day . I was in Dublin only for one month. We met. The day before, this could not have happened, because he was not there. The day before, it could not have happened neither , because he would have been gone away , back to his country. But it happened. And THIS is Vertex.

    The guy has his vertex in Virgo , conjunct exact my Jupiter , AND also conjunct 3 degrees my Venus ( I have Venus / Jup conjunct in my natal)
    As for me, I have vertex in Scorp . My Vertex hits direct his Chiron AND his Eros , conjunct in natal.
    So his vertex hits 2 things of mine, and my vertex hits 2 things of his
    The day I learnt this years later , I was stunned. Almost died scary . Sort of .
    I ‘m absolutely convinced vertex has a role to play in fated encounters of our lives, with significant others. Even when the meeting is not to be a long-time affair

    More hard to understand , is the Vertex role in natal chart , methinks ….
    For instance I have Moon conjunct Vesta and antivertex (the 3 ) in Taurus, and I have absolutely no idea what it means . But it probably means something , because vertex things always mean something.
    Maybe Vertex is a gate to reach significant others, while Antivertex is a gate to reach ourselves, I mean, to connect ourselves with our own major essential point in the soul ?

    What do you think about vertex- antivertex in natal, Amiann ?

    “hugs” from France 😉

    1. amiannamiann Post author

      I am so touched by your kind words, Eve. I will come back and study your post when I can devote the needed time as I want to meditate on it!

  12. amiannadele

    …..STEPHANIE!….you can do a first meeting chart by using the basic chart on BUT you can change the date….specifically to the day you first met…..alas a first meeting chart 😉 and then compare. good luck. x

  13. amiannEve.Marie

    To Adele,
    What you say about the chart of the meeting day/hour:place is very interesting and I ‘m going to do it and check seriously . Especially how it hits or not the synastry vertex connections . It is probably important to check this. Thank you !

  14. amiannEve.Marie

    So ok, I’ve done it, I’ve checked

    the result : Transit vertex in pisces, opposite natal male vertex.
    That is , the Vertex was in transit opposite our synastry connection male vertex conjunct female venus/jupiter in house 5 .
    OMG that seems very weird !
    So the vertex would be especially active when transiting opposite natal vertex ?
    As I have my natal dark lilith Waldemath in Pisces conjunct natal male antivertex, so there was also Transit vertex on my natal Waldemath !

    For the other aspects transits to the 2 natal themes, for the moment I have only checked for the man.
    Its not in my habits to make long boring lists, but this time I ‘ll make an exception.

    Transits to male Natal chart ( T for transit , N for natal) and only for conjunctions or oppositions, the complete list would be too long

    -T vertex opposite N vertex
    -T Sun conjunct N MC
    -T Sun conjunct N Lilith
    -T Venus conjunct N Lilith
    – T Mars conjunct N Lilith
    -T Pluto conjunct N Vénus
    -T Lilith opposite N Lilith
    -T Chiron conjunct natal Ast Karma 3811
    -T Eros 433, opposite natal Psyche 16
    -T Psyche 16 conjunct N north node
    -T ast Karma conjunct N Pluto, N saturn, N, DEC
    -T Ascendant conjunct N psyche
    -T MC opposite natal MC
    as given by astrodienst additionnal tables .

    now , i’m slightly afraid to have a look at mines

  15. amiannadele

    I feel for ya Amiann!

    stephanie -dont worry even if the dates are not exact you can still find aspects such as pluto transits which are very intense and last a while.
    evemarie- glad you found this helpful, it defo opens new doors into synastry, looks like you got some intense fated aspects.
    on the night i met my crush, venus & vertex were in libra 7th house descendant!!….Our composite ascendant is in libra, aswell as my natal ascendant…..

    it all adds up….. 😉
