Because I will be out of town the first week of June, the monthly Skywatch article will be delayed until I return. There’s still time to sign up for your own free subscription! You can sign up in the sidebar here, or on my website.
Ceres is very important the first week of June. It forms a challenging square to both Uranus and Jupiter on the 6th and 7th and then trines Mars before moving back into Sagittarius late on the 7th (Ceres has been in Capricorn since April).
Ceres has to do with our connection to the earth. She presides over ecological matters, but also our own ability to sustain and nourish ourselves. I expect there may be a breakthrough in the Horizon oil rig disaster situation in the Gulf during that week as Jupiter and Uranus bring surprise and a shift in the status quo.
Ceres in Sagittarius is nurtured through knowledge and the pursuit of wisdom, and under this influence for the next five years there will be more of a focus on discovering ways that we can improve our relationship to the Earth.
