In the 6-10-2002 Solar Eclipse we find a solar eclipse focal point over the country of Nigeria. Also there we find Saturn, Mars, Node and Ceres.
We find that Ceres is on the Mid-Haven of Nigeria. What exactly does Ceres represent. I have not always used the asteroids in my work but have found use for Ceres and Pallas. But its use was always questionable until now. If we look at the energy we know we find the following:
1. Public relations/venue, Masses, loss/death
2. Violence, masses, beauty/arts
3. World impacting
4. Religion, women
Now looking back at history we find an event that matches these qualities in Nigeria in 2002. On Nov 22, the Miss World contest was moved after riots by Muslim youths opposed to the event caused the death of 100 people and the injury of 500.
A very good match but one that also suggest another implication of Ceres: Religion in its practice.
According to http://www.cafeastrology.com/ceres.html:
In astrology, Ceres rules food, agriculture, transitions in a female’s life, nurturing, motherhood, and family relationships. With Ceres, there is a love of what is simple, natural, and good for you. There is also a strong need to nurture and protect, as well as to treat other living beings, including animals, with respect. Ceres is also connected to grief, as well as the possibility of destroying everything in one’s path in order to regain what was lost. It might also be connected with separation and time-sharing, as Ceres in myth had to strike a deal with Pluto who had abducted her daughter, Persephone, wherein she was to return to him part of the year.
In taking a step back from the definition we will see that the base description also matches the general meaning of religion in its practice.
I challenge all to consider that definition. In this way we can use the events around the world to further refine our understanding of the effects of the planets on the world and humanity.
