Ceres, an asteroid represents the process of nurturing and how we mother ourselves. Ceres recognizes the paradox roles we inhabit as both our own parent and child. Ceres transits teach us where we easily provide nurturance and care to ourselves and what we need to feel our best physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Libra wants beauty and harmony. While Ceres visits Libra the way we express nurturing is going to be through beauty, we are going to notice the little things people do for us and what we can do form them. Harmony between mothering self and the group will be the challenge here.

This Jupiter transit is going to allow us to tap into the good future by embracing Aries energy through initiating, inspiring others, leading and demonstrating courage. This transit will inspires us to act and feel bolder, taking the risk to get what we want.
Caution to not get impatient and start bleeding to Aries shadow aspects.

New Moon in Capricorn
New Moons are a time of rebirth and planting seeds. During this magical evening you while the sky is dark you want to set intentions for the next 6 months - when the full moon in Capricorn occurs.

Jupiter Semi Square Uranus
During this transit the energy can have us feeling a little restless, with an impatience to grow, improve, and innovate, but not necessarily focused. It can feem scattered and a little chaotic. It's important to ground during this transit and respond from the root chakra and not the head.
We can find it difficult to find common ground or find it challenitn to agree with others. Flexibility is the key. We need to be willing to make changes in our lives now, or change will come and it won't show up with flowers. Embracing the unknown and change is the lesson here.
Mercury goes retrograde in Capricorn
When mercury goes retrograde there's an energy that we're presented with to really take a step back and respond versus react - time when misunderstandings and mishaps are common, offering yourself a moment to pause will allow this transit to be more of a teacher versus a struggle.
Things associated with Mercury: conversations, negotiations, technology, travel, tend to be shaken up.
When Mercury retrogrades through Capricorn, it targets the areas of life Capricorn rules: our careers, ambitions, and public status. Notice that you may experience setbacks in work, clash with authority, or suffer a blow to your image: how you respond is the real gift! This is a great time to look at what areas of your career, public life and goals are aligned with your soul and while are aligned with ego. Release what is aligned with ego, to create space for what the soul wants.
