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 9th House

Nurturing is given through supporting your right to seek new adventures, ultimately for the purpose of broadening your mental and spiritual horizons. A sense of freedom to create your own journey is essential for you with Ceres in the ninth house. Fulfilling the need to assign your own meaning to your experiences is a central theme and is also a key to your healing.

Travelling, especially far away from your hometown, is necessary for your soul's journey; bonus points if you can enroll in a study abroad program to enrich the experience. Experiencing cultures different from your own can feel nurturing.

If your childhood did not provide a safe space to explore different beliefs, it is imperative to create this space for yourself and others as an adult. It is when you have the chance to try on different perspectives that you are closest to achieving a personal level of enlightenment.

You are fueled by a desire to explore the world and collect as many experiences as possible. This Ceres placement can manifest as a soul mission to care for less fortunate people in a different part of the world from you. Learning and expanding are central to your ability to feel loved, so it may also be important to consider partners and friends who share your desire for adventure and novelty.

Just as you desire freedom, you will need to cultivate this for others too. Careers in teaching, traveling, public speaking, writing, and publishing can provide a creative outlet for your nurturing capabilities.

Reflect on this: How can you create more opportunities for yourself to explore different cultures and beliefs, and how can you encourage others to do the same?
