Ceres was the first and largest asteroid to be officially sighted orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. Although Ceres is still considered an asteroid by astrologers, astronomers have elevated her status to "Dwarf Planet."
As I mention in the broadcast, the myth of Ceres as per Greco Roman times leaves much to be discovered and rewritten. I offer in the broadcast that Ceres, as Demeter, as mother of Persephone (goddess of sprig and the underworld) consciously chose her mate as Zeus/Jupiter (king of the gods). Ceres herself is the goddess of protecting the process of transformation, as such she is showing up in our skies at this time to support us on our collective and personal transformational process.
Ceres glyph is a sickle and the cross of matter; the sickle represents Ceres' connection with agriculture and her role as the nourisher of mankind. The cross represents physical reality, and the four elements of matter: air, fire, earth, and water.
Also aligned in the skies a this new moon is the dwarf planet Eris. Discovered relatively recently, deemed a dwarf plant beyond Pluto, ultimately coming to hold her own status beyond Pluto. Eris means business as a warrior goddess and sister of Aries. After the discovery of Eris, Pluto became a dwarf planet as well! There are two glyphs for Eris, form on and form two.
Eris form one is very similar to what we now cal the Labrys. The Labrys, or double Moon-Axe, is found in many parts of the pre-patriarchal world. This is worth an entirely new blog post! I discuss it in the Goddess Consciousness course in more detail. for now we can consider that the glyph of Eris is invoking not only the triple moon goddess (maiden-mother-crone) but in particular the warrior goddess.
Have a look at the Labrys as Golden Moon-Axe from pre-patriarchal Crete below.
Eris form two is an interesting twist on what we know in astrology as the symbol for mars. Mars' symbol, however has the arrow pointed up and out to the right, as if to express forward momentum and action. Eris' glyph has the same symbol pointed directly downward, as if to say "down and in", which is a definitely aspect of feminine power. It is also interesting to note that Eris is said to be the sister and feminine counterpart to Aries, and Aries is ruled by Mars. So this glyph apps denoted the feminine nature of warriorship.
