What Does Ceres Mean?

Ceres goes retrograde for approximately 4 months each year. Physically, Ceres is an asteroid in our solar system’s asteroid belt–the largest one there. In mythology, Ceres (or Demeter to the ancient Greeks) was a grain goddess, a goddess of agriculture. In astrology, she rules the things that connect us to the physical world, such as:

  • firstly, our physical bodies, and how we maintain them… 
  • secondly, how we eat–and how our eating must change over the seasons of our life… 
  • thirdly, our money–how we acquire, save, spend, use, budget and organize our money…
  • … and underneath it all, the self-worth we feel when we bring value to the world

During a Ceres Retrograde period, these “physical world” themes may go haywire. You may experience financial messes or see the results of your poor financial planning. Additionally, you could struggle with a bad diet and have to discover better ways to eat for the life-phase you’re in now. In fact, you might even find yourself caught up in feelings of low self-worth.

But it’s not that Ceres wants you to struggle with these things! Conversely, she wants you to go on an inward journey to reevaluate these things. She’s hoping that, by shining the light of illumination at a particular moment during this journey, you will reverse a bad course, learn from your mistakes, go forth and do better in the future. In short, she’s actually inviting you to have a better relationship with the physical world.
