About Ceres in Astrology
In astrology, Ceres is a dwarf planet (like Pluto), and is the planet of nourishment. It rules what we need for nourishment and support, how we provide this for others, and our resources and how we use them. Ceres connects to money, and is argued to be the ruler of Taurus.
In your natal chart, natal Ceres can show how you get and give support, what nourishes you, and your connection to money and resources. The aspects between your natal Ceres and other natal planets can show how those planets impact support, nourishment, and resources for you.
