Transiting Ceres always beneficial?

I used to dislike the asteroids, as there are so many of them and new agists almost seem to make them up so they can say anything they want about a chart without having to look at it, the same way they use aspects with huge orbs just so they can give their opinion without any actual reference to the birth chart.

But I was recently observing transiting Ceres, because it is given in my American Ephemeris for the 21st Century. I noticed that a few times when it was making very close transits of conjunctions, squares and oppositions to parts of my chart, beneficial things were happening to areas of my life represented by the planet being transited, with nothing else transiting these planets. Such as an exact Ceres square to my natal Sun when I had a minor heart operation that cleared up a problem I have had for a long time, there was nothing else transiting my Sun at the time, though there has been a Solar Arc progression of my Midheaven to my Sun over the past couple of years, which had just about passed out of one degree orb, which caused a lot of this electrical issue with my heart.

What are other people's observations of transits of Ceres to their natal charts? Is she always beneficial?

Did you check for transits to planets in your house 5, house 5 ruler in case it's empty, transits to your house 5 cusp and natal planets in Leo? That's what I would do before making conclusions about Ceres. Smile I once heard that all the asteroid belt objects could have an influence by themselves, but they currently cancel each other out in the "crowd."

I don't follow Ceres transits but in natal it is conjunct my MC and trine my 10th ruler Jupiter and I work in the medical field, so it seems to have some descriptive influence. Astrologers often see my Venus-Mars conjunction in the 10th and assume I work in creative fields (never have). It is currently transiting my ASC ruler and trine my MC ruler and I don't see anything beneficial from it. I have had lack of help with my autoimmune disorder of the throat and trouble eating. I have also applied to a promotion position and haven't heard any response and don't expect to. My most helpful transits are usually looking at my profection ruler for the year and seeing its transits and interactions to other planets and my own chart.

Tanit, I personally wouldn't look at transiting trines or expect them to do much. As for your Ascendant ruler, I know this is just me but I don't follow rulers either...seems feudal...if Ceres was crossing your Ascendant itself, exactly, I would maybe expect to see something beneficial happen? It depends on the planet itself that is your Ascendant ruler.

My ascendant ruler is Moon and is generally my most sensitive planet in transit. I am supposed to schedule an endoscopy to possibly widen my throat so if I schedule it soon I guess I will see if the aspect is beneficial, but I have natal Moon with Neptune in the 6th and doctors never seem to help me. If anything, they give me medications that cause other problems due to my allergies (Neptune) to just about every oral med. If Ceres was going to describe a health issue in my chart, the Moon would be much more likely than Sun. My Sun is not hyleg and is unaspected.

srsedna, Ceres was the only planet *transiting*, in exact square to my natal Sun on the day of the operation. There was nothing else that I would associate with a heart operation, and nothing else transiting to my Sun. I was given this appointment suddenly, much sooner than I had expected from the length of the waiting list I had been told. I was scared, but now so glad I went ahead and had it done. I was expecting to be offered an appointment at a time of heavier transits to my Sun.

Tanit, these are just observations I have started making, mainly because I was so surprised at the lack of strong outer planet transits to my Sun for something as important as a heart operation, and I hadn't scheduled the operation, that decision was made for me much earlier than I was expecting. I was very lucky, everything went well and a longstanding health problem looks over, fingers crossed.

Maybe it is just me, I don't ever feel we really choose things, they happen when the planets say so. Things are probably far more complex than that.

If transiting Ceres is exactly conjunct your natal sixth house Moon, it would be interesting to see what does happen, as the sixth house is to do with health and on another level like its corresponding sign Virgo and planet Chiron, it is where the physical and the spiritual join.

It would at least possibly describe visiting my physician this week and them prescribing a new medication and advising me to get the procedure done ASAP. The procedure was ordered STAT many months ago but I have not done it due to not having much faith in any of my doctors. I probably will be scheduling it in the next month though just to get them to shut up about it. It probably does in general relate to health matters that require attention in transit. I am skeptical of it being beneficial but it would be nice if the new medication works better than my current one. I also have an injured shoulder (rotator cuff) and was given exercises to help with it.
