Harmonizing Ceres’ Energy
was not one of the seven ancient planets and thus, there are no real
traditional remedies like gemstones to relate to her archetype. However, some
claim that there are still ways to enhance the energy of Ceres (and the earth
goddess) through performing outdoor activities and having a plant-based diet.
The mythical Ceres
(“Demeter” in the Greek stories) was a Roman goddess widely associated with the
art of agriculture. She is particularly linked with grain, as well as with the
love a mother bears for her children. (This association comes from the story of
how her daughter was snatched to the Underworld and was only allowed to be
reunited with her mother during the springtime). Ceres was the daughter of
Saturn and the sister of Jupiter, and was considered to be one of the most
benevolent goddesses in the Roman lineup due to her daily involvement with
human lives. The common expression “fit for Ceres” meant splendid.
was known for her service to mankind, providing men and women with harvests and
cultivating their soil for crops. She was credited with teaching humans how to
grow, preserve, and prepare corn and grain. She was also one of the only
goddesses involved in the daily existence of common folks, and thus became
known as a real nurturer of humanity.
was the first asteroid ever discovered. She was spotted in 1801 and is the
biggest body in the asteroid belt. Now, she is considered a dwarf planet. Ceres
is thought to contain liquid ocean and is therefore a main target for extraterrestrial
speculation and research. Because the asteroid is named after the goddess of
harvest and fertility, Ceres represents nurturing and motherhood. Her other
positive influences include parenting, gardening, and hard work.
when this planet is out of alignment, she is associated with grief, eating
disorders, custody issues, low self-esteem, fear of abundance, possessiveness,
excessive attachment, barrenness, and feelings of abandonment. She also causes
a variety of nurturing difficulties, such as fertility problems, the inability
to nurture others, or failing to receive nurturing yourself. This can manifest
itself in feelings of rejection or, interestingly enough, food complexes. Apart
from emotional nourishment, Ceres is also rules over cooking, food, and
Harvesting Ceres in Nature
Ceres drew her strength from plants and flowers, communing with nature (whether
this be spending time outside or eating a plant-based diet) is commonly
associated with “harmonizing” her energy. This can be traced back once more to
the ancient tale of Ceres and her daughter. In the spring, when she was
reunited with her offspring, everything bloomed; in the winter her daughter was
taken away, and nature withered away and died as Ceres mourned. Thus, being
outdoors and taking advantage of Ceres’ bounty seen as a practical way to
“harvest” Ceres’ gifts and use her joy to regain your own personal strength.
