Ceres: Possessiveness, Loss, And The Bloom

"Ceres"We’ve just started talking about dwarf planet Ceres in MoonPluto Land and I was telling folks that wherever Ceres is in your chart, you may feel, well, EXTREME.

No half-measures. No quarter-minutes. No $ 1.99. We’re talking million dollar ferocity.

Where Ceres is, you may feel emotions/mind-states such as: grief, loss, betrayal, rage, pain, abandonment, but also creativity, fertility, deep love.

Ceres was Goddess of the Harvest. Agriculture. Ceres was intensely bonded to her daughter, Persephone.

When Pluto, God of the Underworld, abducted Persephone, the earth tore open. (Interesting because it would have been Persephone who would have been torn open by Pluto but instead we have the earth tearing open here, symbolizing Ceres. That’s how close they were.)

When the deed was done, the earth sealed again. Could this be partly why Pluto is identified with healing and healers? There was an extreme rupture followed by seamless repair.

Where Ceres is in your chart creates a breach, a hole, a gap, a gape, a wound. Open earth. And it’s different than Chiron’s wound. Chiron was bodily injured, a teacher, healer, gatherer of balms.

Ceres is not our Warrior Goddess but she is AT WAR, on the inside, grieving. Lamentation.

And as Goddess of the Harvest, Ceres is about cycles, the waxing and waning of the crops. So despite her being a portal of angst in your chart, she is also there to show your abundant, emerging, cyclical maturation and creative bloom.

Part 2 Coming Up!
