Moon square opposition Ceres

Moon sextile or trine Ceres brings together two mother archetypes in a way that is incredibly fertile and nurturing, but there is a budding urgency and slight desperation about it. The mothering can be too cloying, sentimental and smothering. The reason for this overkill might just be because the subject has suffered great loses or poverty as a child and as a result they are eager to right those childhood wrongs in a big way. These people tend to be philanthropists and can attract great wealth. It’s like the universe seems to know these natives will do right by their fortune.

However, if there are afflictions to Ceres, the drive may come from a less worthy place. the native’s drive may come from a pathological need to be seen as saviour. Moon sextile or trine Ceres craves to be needed, so they will make themselves indispensable by throwing money and lavishing affection to those they love. They make wonderful benefactors and want to feed the common people in any way they know how, which could be through actual food or the arts.

Moon trine Ceres in particular seems to give great luck and the ability to bounce back from tragedy. Their fortunes tend to fluctuate from one extreme to another, but they take it all in their stride saved by their ability to see the funny side of life. Their sense of humour gets them out of the stickiest of situations, but they can have quite a dark edge to their comedy too. Moon trine Ceres us also an extremely sensuous aspect, with an appreciation for the aesthetic and general good taste. They can be quite indulgent and love their luxury, however they are generous too and charity is important to them.

Moon trine or sextile Ceres are fascinated by history and can be very nostalgic. Family and their ancestry is important to them. They like to keep archives and preserve the past for posterity. Passing on their talents to the younger generation seems to be strong with this aspect, as is having some inheritance to hand down to their children. As with all Ceres aspects, the need to nurture is marked and they will do this in the most basic, material way. Providing food, warmth and shelter to those they love.



  1. I have Moon semi-sextile Ceres (in Cancer, 8th house). My Moon is on my MC (Virgo). Yes I think I do have a pathological need to be seen as savior…lol I always wanted to be a Philantropist, but also love to cook and feed people. And I am very interested in Nutrition as well.

  2. HOLEE SMOKES. I’d pulled a chart, maybe a month ago, for the date and time of my mom’s death, but only today felt drawn to investigate. As I went through it, I totally began to feel it was serving as a divination tool for her to give me some (urgent) messages, INCLUDING apologies – which message I got when I looked up March/McEvers’ description of Jupiter in Aries, which included “ABLE TO ANALYZE PAST ERRORS (the life review!)”. And many other things, even including why she might have died (she’d seemed in perfect health, and even a double autopsy hadn’t revealed any cause.” It appears to have been a trauma suffered in her childhood. I won’t go in to it, but it was an incredible experience, and then I saw THIS!
