Ceres is about to enter a new sign, leaving Taurus (the sign it's naturally connected to) and moving into air sign Gemini. What does this do for us?
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 Gemini:
So Ceres is nourishment and support, and in Gemini, this may mean mentally and in communication. We may need more support for our ideas and plans, and want encouragement with our opinions and thoughts. We may give more support with words, offering more words of encouragement and nurturing others with our words. We can choose our words a little more carefully, and want to use them to help, not hurt.
We may focus more on ideas that lead to greater nourishment and support in life, for ourselves and for others. We can be more active in our neighborhoods and communities, wanting to make them comfortable, supportive places. We may be more active in general when it comes to nurturing and supporting ourselves and others, and open to different ideas to do so.
This can be a great time for learning or teaching as this helps us feel more supported. We can grow more confident and comfortable when we're taking in new knowledge and sharing knowledge we have. We may be interested in a variety of things, and the more knowledge we pick up, the more we can feel at ease mentally.
Gemini is a dual sign, so we may find two different ways of being supported or giving support, feeling nurtured or being nurturing, and we may have dual focus for what we're supporting at any time.
Ceres in Gemini Aspects:
So, Ceres in Gemini is pretty busy! Make sure you're giving your mind lots of attention during this period, and spread lots of words of encouragement :)
