As we transition from September to October, we might be having a feeling of being in suspended animation. Over the week ahead, one planet changes signs, and two planets (Mercury and Pluto) prepare to go direct. As the Universe shifts and moves, so do you, so give yourself time to transition.
As we integrate all these shifts, the famous Goddess of Nurturance, Asteroid Ceres extends her hand to guide us in this transition. Ceres has a strong connection to the Fall. In mythology, Ceres was the Goddess of Agriculture and the overall reason why there are seasons on Earth. After losing her daughter Persephone to Pluto, the God of the Underworld, her deep sadness and constant search for reuniting with her child created the Fall as well as the Winter. And once Persephone is rescued from the underworld by Mercury, the Spring and Summer arrive with their bountiful abundance.
As we begin to fully sink into the spirit of Fall, there is no better goddess to prepare us for what’s to come than Ceres, especially as she enters Virgo on Friday, September 29th at 1:55 a.m. Pacific Time. Virgo provides the perfect terrain for this caring asteroid to perform at its best. As an archetype, Virgo is connected to wellness, food, nurturing the body, and getting (and keeping) our lives functioning at their best. As an Earth sign, Virgo also deals with financial wealth, as all Earth signs are, in one way or another, good at making and saving money for a rainy day.
Asteroid Ceres will remain in Virgo until December 18. This means that we will be able to channel its mothering and nurturing energy for the next two and a half months.
Are my eating habits truly nurturing me?
How can I push myself to be better without falling into perfectionism?
What financial steps can I take now that will carry me through the Fall & the Winter?
Ways to Channel Your Inner Ceres:
Plant an herb garden in your window or backyard.
Perform a deep cleaning of your kitchen, office, or entire home.
If you go out to eat a lot, begin preparing healthier and more nourishing meals.
Ceres in Virgo Mantras:
