Ceres, the Area that Tells How You Nurture Yourself and Others.
Hi all and welcome to Spirit's blog. Today I am going to discuss Ceres, as always we will be learning the astronomical features, mythological namesake, and the astrological influence. There will also be a break down of what it stands for in each of the zodiac signs.
Ceres in Astronomy
Ceres is the largest celestial body in the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres is a dwarf planet that has a diameter of 945 km. It is made up of rock and ice and contains roughly one third of the mass in the entire asteroid belt. Ceres was first discovered in January of 1801, by Giuseppe Piazzi, at the Palermo Astronomical Observatory. It was named Ceres after the Ancient Roman goddess of agriculture.
Ceres in Mythology
In Ancient Rome, Ceres was the goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and nurturing in a maternal way. It was believed in this time that she was the discoverer of wheat. She was attributed with the traits of sowing, nurturing seeds and harvesting. In Roman belief before her discovery and guidance, mankind survived on acorns and lived in a lawless society. The Ancient Romans held a celebration every mid to late April in her honor, called Cerealia. This celebration included a circus and horse racing, lastly followed by the invocation of the goddess by a high priest. Ceres was also the protector and benefactress of common law and rights, in the Roman assembly. So as all other deities in the Ancient Roman time, she had attributes of environmental control and state control.
