The sun is now in the signaling of Aries, the first of the flame signs. The daylight is close to both the asteroid Ceres( goddess of earth , nourishment) and Venus( desired relations, magick ). Together they create a wonderful cocktail of fury, sexuality, drive and rage. They also make a good aspect to Mars in Gemini adding even more passion. This power can be used to give radiances to anything from your insinuate relationship to a innovative activity. Together this combining can help you to target manifest your goals and dreams.
Apart from love and fondnes being able to fill up the vigour tank, Venus right next to Ceres can also originate gardening and magick additional potent and strong. Ceres is all about feeling nourished and take good care. Together with Venus all kinds of magick can feel extra fulfilling. We usually say that Fall is the season of the magician. With these aspects we are genuinely have an astrological transit of the witch going on.
Mars causes disappear of Ceres on the 7th of April, Venus on the 10 th of April. The sextile between Mars and the Sun is until the 22 nd of April.
Is the glass half empty or half full?
Ceres is an earth goddess and a great provider of abundance when she is in harmony. When she’s not in balance she knows how instead point out where we are lacking in resources or vigour. There is a saying “is the glass half empty, or is it half full? ” How you choose see that glass depends on you. Can you construe the very best things in your life right now and appreciate them? Or do you merely construe “whats missing”?
The lacking feeling is more likely to made people who are not tapping into the deeper feminine and nourishing exertion established by the Venus/ Ceres conjugation. To help with that you can create an Altar for Earth or the Goddess Ceres. Some of her traditionally bred symbols are: plow, seeds, corn, pig, cornucopia. But actually I believe that she is happy with all represents of earth and rise. I have found that she likes grows, quartzs, grains, mini swine to turn in the altar. Most parties find her very warm, desiring and easy to move contact with.
This is not only creative and recreation to do, it can also bring an securing, heated and comforting intensity in times of change. If you have room for this Altar in your garden or on your balcony it is perfect! Working with the asteroid goddess Ceres opens up for further work with the other asteroid goddesses as well.
Knowing when to say no
Now when the Sun( I, me) Ceres and Venus are joined in Aries( lust, will) there can be an industrious or feeling starvation that is not easily fed. The more you present, the more is wanted and “if youre not” careful you can end up in bottomless spiraling of hunger and possibilities from others. Much like the Tarot card 8 of cups.
If you are usually a person more inclined to say Yes than No, be on your guard! And that croaks for everything from rendering the dog or the children too much treats or candy, to saying yes to your co-workers when you really should not.
This is amplified by us not having any planets disappearing retrograde at the moment. No retrograde planets offsets us less inclined to stop and think before we act. This roundabouts around the theme of lust and hope. Stop and think for a while before deciding and ask yourself the question “Is this what I want, or is it what others wants from me? ”
Ceres and Venus travellings together until the 12 th of April. Ceres and the Sun are joined together until the 21 st of April when the daylight enters into the sign of Taurus.
What kind of action?
Right now we have the wonderful asteroid goddesses Pallas Athena in Pisces( programme, envisaging) and Vesta in Virgo( affection, residence, safety) in opposition to each other. They pull in opposite counselings and it can be hard to know what to do. Pallas Athena in Pisces is not so comfy there. There her activity driven force is more aiming towards spiritual things. It becomes more soft and has a tendency to watch how things turn out, rather than having a practical approach. Vesta on the other hand, she is very practical and pass on in Virgo.
Example: You have a good friend Johanna. She has been in a bad tie-in for a long time. Now she calls you up and asks for help. She says that the situation is worse than ever before. Both Vesta and Pallas Athena am prepared to step in but they have very different approaches. Pallas Athena in Pisces encourages you to asks Johanna if she said he wished to pray and move healing to her to change the energies around her? Vesta has a whole different approach. She invites Johanna “When do you want me to come and help you pack your pockets and get out of there! ”
Another example is William. He is running out of money and is worried about the family finances. Pallas Athene urges you to ask him if the wants you to read the cards for him? See how things are most likely to play out? Vesta says: “How about originating liquor from dandelions and sell to the neighbourhood supermarkets to increase your currency? I will come and help you”
Either way is better than the other but it can create a lot of exasperation when not knowing what to do. My advice is to do both things, approach the problem from both a practical and a more industrious stage. It may also be good to ask your friend or your buyer what kind of support they are looking for.
Highs and lows
This tension between Pallas Athena and Vesta can fix us all pendle between a lot of handwritings on act, doing things, being practical to a more tightened let’s see how things used to work, posture. Choosing either surface over the other can draw us be brought to an end in a sit we don’t want to be this spring and time. Activity( Vesta in Virgo) without wisdom and considered is not good. All remembers( Pallas Athena in Pisces) without backing it up with activity will take you nowhere no matter how clear the analyze is. Offset in the key now and if you find it “youve been” so much better at ease.
Vesta and Pallas Athena causes go of each other on the 18 th of May. But they will meet up with each other once again in opposition in the same mansions on the 18 th of June.
Expand your lore
Jupiter( swelling, rise) in Aquarius is in a good position( sextile) to the asteroid goddess Juno( relationships, collaborations) in Sagittarius( knowledge, ability ). This is a good time to learn more and expand your understanding of things. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and do deeper experiment. Buy diaries, go on courses and set off time for study. Professionals and those more knowledgeable than you are also more inclined to help you right now. This is a good time to work together with others in joint jobs and collaborations. This transit is until the 18 th of April.
