Now after analyzing Ceres influence and Ceres-Moon link I will focus on the Ceres cycle. There are interesting things to discover about Ceres complete transit through the entire zodiac. The Ceres return occur every 4.6 years and it may depends on the retrogrades times.
Firstly a few words about Ceres transits influence… From the beginning I will mention that Ceres transits are more active for a women person and more subtile and less direct for a male person. This is normal considering the Ceres type of energy which is more Yin related.
Basically Ceres transit will point out events in our life when our emotions and inner life are very strong influenced and changes might occur. Ceres is outlining the source of these events while the Moon (esp. progressed) show us what type of change is about. Imagine that you are a still lake and from time to time rock are falling from the near mountains. This rocks are making waves…similar to external events which are creating emotional waves in our soul. Ceres is showing us information about the rock, the source of rock and when and where will hit the water surface. It’s not about the waves created by the rock.
Of course the most important aspects are conjunction esp. when Ceres is transiting Sun,Moon and Venus and other personal planets or points. In particulary Ceres is a good indication for child birth and pregnancy for a women but not restricted to this.
Now let’s talk about some interesting facts about Ceres cycle. In my opinion Ceres cycle is a major cycle and a link betwenn Moon cycles: in transit and in progression (secondary progression). The Moon cycle in transits is aprox. 28 (27,75) days while in progression is about 28 (27,75) years. So we have 360 Moon-transits-cycles for 1 Moon-progressed-cycle. Translated I can say that each person in 28 years (also the cycle period of Saturn 🙂 ) will experience the full complete zodiacal circle experience from emotional point of view. This is a growing up and maturiy cycle and each of us must go through. But the 28 year cycle is a long one and just a few persons will reach the complete 3rd cycle. Now Ceres is entering into scene…
With a 4,6 years cycle Ceres is the missing link between Moon cycles. Making a simple calculation we will find out that 1 Ceres cycle = 60 Moon-transits-cycles and 1 Moon-progressed-cycles= 6 Ceres-cycles. And I might say that are perfect correlations…
In conclusion we will have 1 Moon-Progressed-cycle = 6 Ceres-cycles = 60 Moon-transit-cycles. Pretty interesting, isnt’ it?
Based on this I can say that in our growing up cycle (28 years) the external events which help us evolve are repeting for 6 times. Each time the Ceres transit will activate the same point in our chart and it will send us the same type of experience. I’m not saying the same life experience but the same type of event. And is in our duty to be able to learn from this 6 opportunities.
From the practical point of view the Ceres return chart is very helpful. And for a women is a clear indication of the conception and birth process and all aspects related with. But Ceres is not limited to this because it is showing us all the events that are reaching us on a deeper level: familly events, medical problems etc. I’m currently using Ceres return for each consultation I have and my client is a women. It help me understand her better and to be able to make a more detalied analysis of her future evolution.
About the Ceres return chart interpretation I will discuss in a future articles. Until then I’m eager to find out your opinion about Ceres cycles. Try to use it on your chart or your clients chart and see what you can observe there.
