Continuing with the series of Ceres articles (funny how that sounds if you say it!), this article is going to cover progressed Ceres in the houses.
Ceres in astrology
In astrology, Ceres is often called an asteroid but it's technically a dwarf planet like Pluto, and it rules nourishment and support. It's an elevated Moon with a little bit of Venus thrown in there, and is argued to be the ruler of Taurus.
In your natal chart, Ceres shows how you nurture and what you need for nourishment. In transit, Ceres shows how nurturing energy is being used at the moment, where, with what, and if it's beneficial or challenging.
Progressed Ceres astrology
The progressed chart adds one day to your date of birth for every year you've been alive to create a new chart reflecting your maturation and growth. It's also used in predictive analysis.
Progressed Ceres shows how your nurturing energy evolves over time, as well as how what you need to feel nurtured and supported changes with age.
This article will focus on progressed Ceres in the houses, and you can apply this to the natal houses or to the progressed houses. Ceres usually doesn't move too fast in the progressed chart, so it may only change houses 1-2 times in your life.
Progressed Ceres in the Houses:
Progressed Ceres in the 1st house
Progressed Ceres in the 1st house can integrate Ceres more into your personality and overall life. You can give great attention to self-nourishment, tending to your own needs, and making sure you have what you need to feel safe and secure. You can become more comfortable with being open with your own needs, and going for what you want. You can start to feel this once Ceres moves to the Ascendant sign.
Progressed Ceres in the 2nd House
Progressed Ceres in the 2nd house can bring great abundant energy to your life. Ceres is a ruler of money, as if the 2nd house, so there can be financial opportunities that expand your financial security and set you up for a long time. You can focus on what you need to feel more confident and secure, have greater stability and security, and how to ground yourself better. Your values may also play a role in your confidence.
Progressed Ceres in the 3rd House

You may start feeling all of this when Ceres first enters your Imum Coeli sign.
Progressed Ceres in the 5th House
Progressed Ceres in the 5th house can make you more generous, and you can be more light and playful in how you nurture others. You may connect more to your children, if you have any, or to the children in your life, as well as to your own inner child, and can tend to the needs of your inner child. Being creative, making time for fun, enjoying yourself, and connecting to your heart can become more important for feeling supported, secure, and nurtured.

Your work and daily life can have a greater impact on how secure you feel, and you may need to nurture yourself in small ways regularly.

Progressed Ceres in the 7th House

You may feel that relationships help you feel more secure, and you may prefer more time around others and less time alone. You can attract more Ceres people to you as well, so they may be people who are financially abundant, resourceful, caregivers, and natural nurturers.
Progressed Ceres in the 8th House
Progressed Ceres in the 8th house can show you need to transform in some way to feel nurtured and supported, and to have your needs met. Until then, you may give even more, intensely and passionately, but it can take a toll on you. This can be excellent for any mutually-beneficial projects or ventures, and you may find that pays off much more for you.
Progressed Ceres in the 9th House

You can be a great champion for others, and can find a way to convince others of your positions.
Progressed Ceres in the 10th House
Progressed Ceres in the 10th house can show rewards for hard, smart work, dedication, and being responsible, especially right when Ceres first crosses the Midheaven.

Progressed Ceres in the 11th House

You may take care of your friends, being the one who they go to for help or advice.

Progressed Ceres in the 12th house can show you being extremely nurturing and supportive behind the scenes. You may become more of a king maker and less of a king. You can be powerful in the background, and others can look to you for guidance. You can also be a spiritual guide, and focus more on meeting your spiritual needs, though you may sacrifice them more in order to meet the needs of others. Healthy boundaries are needed.
