Ceres enters Aries on April 14th. When Ceres was in Pisces, there was an emphasis on release, and the "winter" portion of the cycle of nurturing and loss. With her Aries ingress, we start a new phase.
Aries is synonymous with new beginnings, and this can apply to Ceres. If her transit through Pisces encouraged you to let go, her Aries transit will encourage you to nurture fresh potentials. What those potentials are will depend on what house(s) Aries occupies in your chart. Ceres in Aries suggests birth, nourishing new impulses and instincts. Something so new that it's still raw and vulnerable. But there's also enthusiasm for the future.
Her association with release still stands - Ceres in Aries does not grasp or smother. She nurtures independence and free will.
- Ceres will leave Aries for Taurus on July 17th, 2016

- Reenter Aries on October 13th, 2016

21 to 29 degrees Aries will see some intensified Ceres action, suggesting a delay or review around the birth of something (a project, relationship, or potential). This may or may not mean it will move forward, but fears about moving forward will have to be dealt with. Ceres Rx in Taurus, then Aries, suggests second thoughts about seeds that have been planted, or a birth that's been encouraged.
