• The Unconventional Nurturer

Ceres in 11th House


The 12 Houses of astrology are symbolic of the all the departments that make up human life. The planets and zodiac signs will manifest themselves most strongly in the sphere of life represented by the House in which they fall on your chart. Houses are not "energies" like the elements or planets, nor do they color the expression of energies like the zodiac signs do. The houses are WHERE these energies are most likely to manifest. The houses are the fields of experience, not the experience themselves.

Ceres in 11th House

The nurturing function of Ceres is applied to the collective when in eleventh house.

Instead of nurturing on an individual or partnership basis, the focus turns toward groups of people. An example of this would be running a support group for single parents, a Ceres ruled population.

This is a placement that may like to lead community projects, such as gardens to grow and share food. Building sustainable communal care is important to Ceres’ cause.

There is also potential to create new models of nurturing by advocating for creative solutions to current challenges in our societal systems. The possibility of birthing new ideas and frameworks for collective healing is strong.

This can be channeled through social service jobs involved with childcare, family therapy, food services and healthcare.

Friendships can be a source of nurturing, assuming individuality is respected and celebrated. Great power lies in creating networks, sharing resources and fostering healthy interdependence.

Your style of nurturing is likely to differ from those around you, as you have the mark of the pioneer and inventor. Similarly, your desire for nurturing may be through unconventional methods, perhaps involving your friends.


You feel most loved when your individuality and unique nature is encouraged and appreciated. If you did not receive this in childhood, your adulthood has the potential to become a healing playground where your freak flag can fly freely.


Advocating for social justice or providing service to marginalized populations can help you get in touch with your natural style of nurturing.
