Ceres stations direct (0 deg Sagittarius)
Venus opposing the ruler of July 16th’s eclipse indicates that the eclipse results will deliver a reality check around what you want and love. This could be a commitment, ending or hard definition that locks you in to what you want.
Sometimes strict boundaries can be a good thing, especially if you’ve been craving security and tradition. If so, this eclipse could deliver a very reassuring conclusion. But if you end up being denied, know that Venus’ move over the North Node says it’s time to move on, no matter what. The future awaits, and it’s full of the authentic, nurturing expression of what you want and need. Saturn is just making it easier to get there, because you can’t go back (and you probably don’t want to).
If you’re feeling unloved, pressured or restricted (you can’t enjoy what you want to enjoy) know that this is part of the maturity process. Draw your line, define your values, move on. Take responsibility for what you want - family and parental issues are key. Remember that you’re moving towards what you want and need. This is not some random craving or indulgence. You’re taking a hard look at what you’re ready to commit to. Consider the line between want and need (very important). The two are combined now, so it’s about more than indulgence.
Ceres direct continues the theme of forward movement - expansive nurturing or the exploration of growth in new areas is now ready to progress. Watch for movement in something you’ve put your faith in.
