Ceres, the asteroid archetype of the Grandmother and the Goddess of the Grain is showing up as part of this powerful trinity. Ceres is representing the energy of our Ancestors and they, too, are calling us into action. Ceres brings forth the strength, wisdom and gifts of our ancestors. Ceres in this alignment signals that the time is now to wake up, rise up and assist humanity to move forward.
Possessing a feminine energy, Ceres in its simplest form represents ‘mother’. To the ancient Egyptians, Ceres was known as Isis.
In astrology, Ceres can represent what we need to feel loved and nurtured, like the moon.
Ceres is the quintessential earth mother, and rules over food, cooking, nutrition and gardening. Wherever Ceres appears in your chart she shows how you feel nurtured. This is also the area where you can easily provide love and comfort. This asteroid can also represent custody issues around children too, including abduction…
☆ Goddess Of Harvest ☆ The Universal Mother ☆ Mother Nature ☆ Provider ☆
Ceres, mother of the asteroids, brings awareness to how we nurture and to that which is truly nurturing to us. Ceres embodies both mothering and agricultural qualities and brings attention to our relation with the Earth, the land, the seasons, and the harvesting of crops. Ceres is associated with fertility, the womb, childbirth, and caring for the young. Ceres brings attention to all that is cyclical in nature—to bounty and fecundity as well to the withholding or denial of bestowing that bounty. Astrological placements of Ceres reveal areas of life in which we nurture and receive nurturing, but also how we may withhold our capacity to nurture or resist being nurtured ourselves, which is based around issues of self-worth and self-esteem. Ceres reveals our ability to be in universal flow—the unification of giving and receiving as one flow of energy through ourselves. Ceres asks for acknowledgment of our inner needs, to have self love and self worth. Ceres is of concern and caring for others as well as for all life, and for the Earth herself. Due to Ceres resonance with the land, agriculture and the environment, Ceres is most often prominent in charts associated with catastrophic events that result in environmental change.
Potential Ceres issues are: fear of abundance, lack and material struggle; low self esteem; unworthiness; abandonment / rejection issues expressing as attachment to people and things, manipulation of loved ones, over-attachment to siblings, possessiveness, and control of siblings or of one’s creations; mother-child complexes; and barrenness.
