DEFINING GRACE: COMPASSION Your greatest strengths and contribution Ceres is the warm, nurturing, loving angel of a mother we all long for. She is most fulfilled when she is providing this emotional, physical and spiritual foundation. Ceres is the hearth and heart of the home. Your love sustains others throughout life, whether together or not. The Ceres archetype are advocates for children's rights and have a strong drive to do all they can to provide a safe and protected place for all. With Ceres as your ally you ensure your voice is heard.
Ceres also reminds you to allow yourself to receive as well as give, and to take care to love and nurture yourself, as well as develop your own talents and interests.
With Ceres supporting you with a loving and gentle presence, you are able to provide a nurturing base from which others can grow and then leave to reach for the stars.
Your Unique Challenge Your fear of being thought of as selfish may lead you to consistently minimise and undervalue yourself. You must learn to take care of yourself first and resist the urge to become a martyr in service to others.
Your Lesson To Learn Learning to help when it's really needed.
Style of Processing: Heart Those with a Ceres archetype are all heart. It is your strength. You love people and feel everything. You must also honour your soul and find your personal meaning of life and connection to the divine.
Shadow Self The shadow agenda of the Ceres Archetype can sometimes lead to becoming a stubborn martyr, denying you need help. The 'not-self' of the Ceres archetype who goes too far in their service to others can show as co-dependency, or 'being a victim', not just of the people for whom they are caring but of their own guilt and feelings of inadequacy.
Here are 3 ways that you can work with Ceres as your Ally 1. It is important that you take time out for yourself. Release yourself from the expectation that you will "be all and provide all" for others. It is important that you nurture yourself. It is essential that, as part of your personal nurturing, you also develop your interests and talents.
2. Learn to recognise that you have a voice - and that you have every right to use it. Do not allow yourself to be intimidated by anger or those who would speak over you. The louder the other's point of view, usually the less secure they are. See it for what it is. Be still, let it subside, and then speak. Ceres archetypes gain respect when self-respecting. You are innately wise. Trust this.
3. Ceres archetypes thrive with the creation of daily, meaningful rituals. These rituals can be very simple, such as time-out in nature, a mindful walk, or spending time in your 'sanctuary' space in the home. These rituals will help ground you and connect you with your own divine femininity and intuition.
