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 Opposition Natal Mercury


Ceres symbolizes nurturing of all kinds, while Mercury represents the mind, thoughts and communication style. With an opposition, there will likely be circumstances that bring your mental health and quality of communication into light.

When mental processes are in opposition with the nurturing aspect there can be tension in communication, particularly beginning with the primary caregiver in childhood. This is the mark of a child who cannot express what they need. Perhaps the child feels misunderstood, even when they try to communicate. In either case, the adult with this aspect must learn how to effectively communicate in order to have their needs met in relationships. 

If you have been struggling with your mental health or unhelpful communication patterns, this is the time to seek outside support and resources.

Working with a professional therapist can be rewarding at the time of this opposition. This is a period where you may find you receive the insights you need to put things into perspective.

Revisiting the past, and any pain that lives there, will be a necessary component to the journey – so be prepared and surround yourself with support as you work through your healing process. In the end, you will better understand your own needs.
