The word “self-care” has become sort of trite and over-used, but self-care is exactly what the asteroid-now-called-planet Ceres is all about. Ceres is about our relationship with food (remember it was Ceres/Demeter who starved the world when her daughter was abducted into the underworld) and I believe that Ceres has come into mainstream consciousness to teach us about how to have a positive relationship with a physical incarnation as the energies of the Aquarian transition become more complex to manage.
As time continues to speed up, and we are continually bombarded with an ever-increasing amount of electromagnetic force fields (from cell phones, satellites, wifi networks, etc.) our bodies energetic systems can become overloaded. Ceres teaches us how to balance our energy systems with nutrition, movement, ritual bathing and other ceremonies to help us connect more deeply within. On this day when the planets are relatively quiet, the Sun smiles on Ceres to illuminate ways in which we can bring greater harmony and integration into the system of mind, body and spirit.
