Mercury Ceres aspects are particularly clever, cunning, and ingenious with the perfect blend of logic and intuition. Mercury Ceres resonates with the magician in the Tarot. As an archetype, Mercury Ceres aspects can be tricksters or shamans or both! In terms of sexuality, sometimes this is the Lolita, the child in an adult’s body. But the hard aspects can create a stunted Tinker belle or an errant Peter Pan.
Conversely, Mercury Ceres aspects are children who grow up far too quickly so as adults they crave their stolen childhood. With the hard aspects, the natives can regress to the point that they vicariously live out their lost years through their children or childish pursuits. The worst possible scenario is the horror of someone who abducts children for this purpose.
The Eternal Child
Sometimes these people cannot physically have children, or have a career where they never need to assume adult responsibility. Another way this plays out is through experimenting with gender. They may exaggerate it to the point it is almost cartoon-like, or they may go the opposite and ‘gender-bend’.
Whatever they do with their sexuality, Mercury Ceres aspects like to keep people guessing. These natives are free spirits and may find it hard to commit to relationships. Flighty and flirty, this dark bird will not be caged, but it may fall for someone behind bars! This subject may become fatally attracted to its “evil” twin, which is another way they can avoid real commitment and allows them to flit between the earth world and the underworld.
Living By Their Wits
The softer aspects seem to bring out the clown. They live by their wits and have a tremendous sense of humour. This wit often gets them out of some very tight spots. Here we have a charming, childlike naivety combined with a razor-sharp mind. Mercury Ceres natives have the potential to be amazing thieves because of their innocent faces and barefaced cheek. These subjects retain a sexy illusion of youthfulness even if they resemble a dried-up prune!
