Some years ago I start working with Ceres and integrated within the analysis done for my clients. Following this astrological link between Ceres and Moon helped me understand better some of the emotional patterns and behaviours.
Right now I would like to focus on Moon square Ceres within natal chart.
In my opinion (see previous articles) Ceres is related to external events which has a direct and strong impact on our inner balance and emotional status. In other words Ceres shows us what will directly hit our Moon.
Moon square Ceres is an indication of a higher need for emotional security and always show us that we need more time to accomodate to changes occuring in our life. No matter if these changes have a positive or negative impact, people with Ceres square Moon will feel on the beginning some fear and uncertinity about the new things. Usually thet realize on mental or logical level that everything is fine but emotional is not ready yet.
This emotional pattern is reflecting to all types of changes from the smallest one to bigger ones.
For example: when you go on holiday. Even that the hotel and the room is perfect a person with Moon-Ceres square will need 1 or 2 day to feel confortable and enjoy it.
If you talking about a more important change (job change, relationships) for sure the person will need more time to accomodate – it can be 1 week, 1 month or more.
My advice for persons with Moon square Ceres: be patient with yourself! Allow you time to accomodate and do not be stressed if in the beginning you are not feeling very confortable.
