Sun sextile Ceres seems to be an aspect that makes people want to share and be generous with their gifts. With most of the subjects, the common theme seems to be the propagating of their talents and spreading their seeds around to as many people in the world as possible. They make great social commenters, can be charitable and generally just want to see the world grow and flourish around them. However they can be horders also and just enjoy making wealth for the sake of it. The sextile is a Venusian aspect, so here it represents blossoming and bee’s flitting excitingly between the flowerbeds. This should make these people rather sexy in a wholesome, sensual way, lush and fertile, looking like they are constantly “on heat”.
Ceres of course has that sad tinge of sorrow, loss and separation, but with the sextile the subject is consciously steering away from the dark days and trying to use the experience to make the world a better place. This will often mean they are prone to wearing rose tinted glasses as they skip through their Utopia, which can be infuriating but at the same time charming in its innocence. Of course not everyone with this aspect is going to be a saint, but the person may well see themselves as one! Being seen as the benefactor is important for their feelings of self worth.
