Pluto and his mother-in-law Ceres

Date: 2 June 2018
Location: Portland, Oregon

Now that Ceres is on an equal footing with Pluto, should we use her in our work?

Faye will look at the astronomy, history and the myth of Ceres and her relationship with Pluto. By showing Ceres in mundane and individual work, she suggests meaning and themes that can be given to this archetype.

Ceres is a Goddess who presides over natural cycles, democracy, food and cultivation. As a great teacher, her role in mythology can show us how to develop this ancient feminine archetype and help create abundance. Ceres is a powerful goddess who nurtures life but also threatens life when crossed. She can help us enter the world of rites of passage. Being in tune with her can show us the right times to let go and enter a new cycle. She can show us how to grow old gracefully and fruitfully. As the archetype of the Mother-in-law she can give us information in relating to family and in-laws. Ceres was upgraded to a dwarf-planet in 2006 and is now equal to Pluto. We will discuss the reclassification and mythology to delve deeper into her meaning.

Using case studies and examples from the audience, (so bring your charts with Koch houses) we shall gain insight into what Ceres is asking of us now, both personally and in the world. What is coming into consciousness and how can we (also as astrologers) make use of her energies in today’s world?

For a taste of what’s in store you can listen to Vanessa Couto’s podcast – a conversation with Faye in  Ceres gets a promotion.
