Nourishing the "own castle" - new beginnings August 2022

Updated: Dec 13, 2022

Heliocentric, sidereal, constellation or even star based Astrology gives us a straight view...

We become the observer and gain insights that might otherwise be hidden...


Ceres – Varuna conjunction

at the star Decapoda of Cancer


On 18th of August 2022 – next conjunction on 17th of April 2027


Varuna with his mean orbit time of 279 years is much slower than Ceres with her ca. 4,5 years.

Varuna is one of the dwarf planets of “Pluto’s realm” and thus speaking of more universal affairs. Those parts of ourselves, that are not bond to the mere physical realms…

Ceres is an Asteroid in the main belt, orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.


As such, this conjunction links our personal experiences of those outer/inner worlds with the societal belief structure…

I've seen such "4" choreography before but haven't really found any definition for it yet - to me, as it's in the sum of the angles more than 360 degrees, it may talk about longer term goals or influences. Number 4 also symbolizes the cross, the main directions, creation, the elements and more...

If we take the energies of the meeting point and the planets together, we get a clear picture of nourishing the inner self and to work and live from there in order to create an environment nourishing for metamorphosis to happen… that means also an inner teamwork that is needed and it may lead to the awareness of others needing to do the very same…
