Dear Earth Stewards!
Our love for our Mother Earth (AKA Gaia Sophia) is shared among many and not only terrestrially. Without the rest of the universe we and out dear earth couldn't be here! With that in mind (plus an open mind) planetary & astroid progressions and transits in our solar system can be considered as part of the all-inclusive integral support of our planet. I count the following progression/transit of Ceres as "good news":
"Ceres moves into Capricorn on 9 January highlighting the environment and the need to reduce our ecological footprint by taking more personal responsibility for our actions and inactions. Governments and polluters need to do much, much more. Ceres is the goddess of crops and grains so agriculture likely to be in the news.":
"In astrology, Ceres represents how we approach nourishment—physically, emotionally, and psychologically. It also represents nurturing, the mother principle, and the way we receive and give emotional support. The word nurturing comes from the Latin nutrire, "to feed," and one of the most innate acts of nurturing humans experience is when the mother instinctively holds her newborn to her chest to feed. Proper parental love should be secure and unconditional. If it is not, low levels of self-esteem, anxiety, fear, dependency, perfectionism, or control issues may manifest. All of the above are also root causes of eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia, and it is no surprise that Ceres rules not only nourishment, but also eating disorders and our relationship to food in general.":
Through the astrological reading available at Llewellyn I immediately recognize myself regarding my natal Ceres in Pisces. I certainly regard my mealtime as a "spiritual communion with the highest vibration of Earth's bounty". Llewellyn says: "... people with this placement often approach food with a eucharistic sanctity. ... They realize that nourishment starts far before the food arrives on our plate. ... In the kitchen, Ceres in Pisces is a highly inventive and fantastical chef who can take commonplace ingredients and transform them into one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen creations. ..."
Now I take the natal placement of Ceres and read the Sabian Symbols for the next degree as the exact symbol plus the one before and the one after - which gives the following three:
PHASE 335 (PISCES 5°): A CHURCH BAZAAR.
KEYNOTE: The value of giving a spiritual or transcendent sanction to even the most commonplace interchanges between social persons and individual minds.
This is the last of five symbols emphasizing the interaction between people constituting a social group, small or large. It brings in the element of religious sanctions. The purpose of any organized religion is primarily to meet the need of giving a more permanent significance to interpersonal relationships within the framework of a particular way of life and culture. It helps to keep the society "whole" by making it "holy"— at least in principle and ideal. It justifies human behavior by blessing it with a divine Revelation of what is good and valuable. It idealizes biological and social needs by ritualizing them.
This ends the sixty-seventh five-fold sequence on a note of RITUALlZED BENEFICENCE. It stresses the possibility of the "Presence of God" in even the most material human activities.
SECOND LEVEL: EMOTIONAL/CULTURAL
PHASE 336 (PISCES 6°): A PARADE OF ARMY OFFICERS IN FULL DRESS.
KEYNOTE: The dedication of human beings to the service of their community, and the assurance that it will be emotionally sustained by the people at large.
Here we see at work the emotion-rousing appeal of social activities which demand the surrendering by the individual of his personal way of life, his opinions and his comfort. The socializing process is pictured in all its intensity but what is implied even more is the support that the socialized person can expect from the collectivity if he is ready to act and to sacrifice himself for the nation or the group.
This is the first symbol of the sixty-eighth series. It allegorizes the power generated by a totally accepted and enforced collective discipline, and the exaltation and mass response which he who has achieved this self-surrender to a social tradition can expect in return.
The Keyword is GROUP-RESPONSIBILITY.
PHASE 337 (PISCES 7°): ILLUMINED BY A SHAFT OF LIGHT, A LARGE CROSS LIES ON ROCKS SURROUNDED BY SEA MIST.
KEYNOTE: The spiritual blessing which strengthens individuals who, happen what may, stand uncompromisingly for their own truth.
Men who do not depend upon collective values, traditions or support but seek at any cost to be true to their individual self and destiny almost inevitably face some kind of crucifixion. They are sustained only by the power within them, to which a light above answers. The symbol tells us: "Be true to thine own self, and in the midst of the outer confusion displayed by those surrounding you, you will realize what you really are as an Individual — a son of God."
This second stage symbol presents us with a realization in polar opposition to that evoked by the preceding scene. It implies the supreme worth of a life guided by an inner voice and manifesting a high degree of SELF-ASSERTION.:
This astro forecast (linked above) concludes by saying:
"Pluto and the Sun make a conjunction each year around this time too. This year it happens to be a Full Moon. It’s possible that we may see some powerful seismic activity this week too.
This is a super powerful Full Moon that will help us prioritize, focus on our passions and make some key decisions."
