Sun Conjunct Ceres Meaning
Sun conjunct Ceres embodies many of the themes of the Persephone myth. There seem to be themes of sudden great gain or loss which forces growth. These people might find pain is involved if they have to separate from their family for any reason. Sun with Ceres can feel scarred, betrayed or tainted by some family scandal, inheritance or ancestral trait. This subject may have had an overly cosseted childhood which leaves them ill equipped to deal with the gritty reality of the outside world. They have a childlike naivety, that only see’s the good in people. The problem is then that they are easy prey to those who exploit their kind and trusting nature. There may be a weakness for being seduced by the inverted glamour of the outlaw, but this may be the only way they can break away from an overly possessive parent. Not wanting to upset the family then, the Sun Ceres individual can subconsciously create a situation where they get disowned. This way the lover becomes the demon, not themselves.
Problems with this aspect can be the unrealistic expectation of an eternal summer and the huge sense of loss when this cotton candy world expires. Ceres is associated with the poppy seed and hops, therefore the attraction to prolonging the happy season through the use of opiates or beer can be a danger. On the plus side Ceres is about fertility, and with the creative Sun this aspect can indicate an abundant artistic output. The subject needs to insure they get their wintertime however, otherwise they are easily prone to burn out. With age and after many rebirthing experiences they make good “midwives” themselves, helping others in their transitions. This aspect can denote an extremely productive and prolific individual, one who attracts wealth towards them, but wether they get to keep the fruits of their labours is another question.
