Ceres Conjunct Natal Moon

Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Ceres Conjunct Natal Moon

When Ceres and the Moon meet in a conjunction, there is great concentration of emotional energy used to nourish and nurture. This can be accomplished through themes such as food, physical movement, and spiritual growth.

Ceres represents the caretaker, and the Moon represents the emotional posture of the soul, making this conjunction a fertile ground for unconditional love.

It is also possible that this aspect speaks to great resiliency in the face of loss, betrayal, and grief. This is not to say these things do not occur; rather, the soul is able to rise through the fiery ashes born anew.

Each transit plays out differently, largely dependent upon a variety of factors. In this case, Ceres conjunct your natal Moon can be a time of emotional soothing and nurturing or it can be a time to dig up emotional pain at the root to heal it.

Neither experience is inherently good or bad. In both cases, having a solid support system is crucial. Be sure to know your resources and allow yourself to express your needs as Ceres guides you to heal your innermost self (aka your inner child).

It may be helpful to try to view yourself and your story through the eyes of trusted loved ones, as this can give you a new sense of self-compassion as you navigate your spiritual rebirth process.

Be sure to honor your body’s cues and take self-care very seriously.
