Ceres will soon leave Gemini and enter Cancer. Ceres has been back and forth between Gemini and Taurus since May 2021, so this is the first time Ceres will leave those signs in about a year!
What is Ceres in astrology?
Ceres is technically a dwarf planet (like Pluto) but in astrology, we call it an asteroid (as it was before the dwarf planet designation). Ceres is super nurturing, supportive, caring, and there for you. I describe it as a supercharged Moon (maybe mixed with a little Venus).
You can find Ceres in your own chart on astro.com (in Extended Chart Selection, click on Additional Objects, and select Ceres from the menu).

General Impact of Ceres in Cancer:
Ceres can be pretty comfortable in Cancer since Ceres is ruler of nourishment and is like a supercharged Moon (mixed with some Venus), and the Moon is the ruler of Cancer. With Ceres in Cancer, we can be extra supportive and encouraging of those we care about, and we can make more time to help them.
We may want to give ourselves more emotional nourishment as well, and we can tend to our emotional needs. No more putting them aside and letting them go unmet. We can take care of ourselves emotionally, and want to be around those who support us. It goes both ways.
This can be great energy to focus on the home, and we can prioritize making our home a nourishing, supportive place. We want to be more comfortable there, so this can be a time to redecorate or renovate. If moving, you may give more attention to the places you feel comfortable in.
This can also be a time for family, and we can be more supportive of those we view as family. Some may expand their family, and this can be a good time for pregnancy and parenthood.
Ceres in Cancer Aspects:
So that's it for Ceres in Cancer! Ceres is moving ahead quickly now, so it won't be in Cancer for very long. We likely welcome the change in energy and the faster pace after dealing with Gemini and Taurus for so long!
