Juno in Taurus opposite Ceres in Scorpio (20 deg)
Pluto in Capricorn sextile Ceres in Scorpio (20 deg)
Continuing December 28th’s themes, Ceres in Scorpio now opposes Juno. Ceres in Scorpio is complete, intensive and demanding nurturing with the added awareness of the “death” part of the cycle of nurturing and loss. Scorpio always intensifies things with undertones of complete transformation (death is the greatest transformation).
So Ceres/Juno pits the stable, unchanging relationship commitment against the transformational powers of nurturing. One partner might demand more than the other can give. Or, this could be an ending that marks a change in one partner’s status (due to illness or loss of resources).
Once again, Pluto is there to support via a sextile, reminding us that these profound shifts are necessary and empowering. There is a “death” occurring in an agreement, but it’s part of the cycle. What comes next?
A reminder that Venus conjoined Ceres on December 27th - the conjunction was a new beginning as love, loss and unconditional care united. What has developed since then and how is it impacting the fixed parameters (or financial rules) of a relationship commitment?
