☆♥*♥☆ Poseidon, Ceres ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, "4341 Poseidon (1987 KF) is an Apollo asteroid and Near-Earth object discovered on May 29, 1987 by Carolyn S. Shoemaker at Palomar Observatory. In Greek Mythology, Poseidon was the god of the sea, known to the Romans and Greeks as Neptune, and to the Etruscans as Nethuns. He was also the god of earthquakes, referred to as "earth-shaker" because of his role in causing earthquakes." It was thought by some that Poseidon was originally an aristocratic horse-god, hence his affinity with horses. Where Poseidon is found, may also cause certain forms of mental disturbance. One Hippocratic text says that he was blamed for certain types of epilepsy. Sailors prayed to Poseidon for a safe voyage, sometimes drowning horses as a sacrifice.

According to Martha Lang Westcott, some keywords that describe Poseidon are: uplifting people and ideas, psychic vibrations, persuasion, intellectual or spiritual influences, ideological or moral stances, spreading ideas, advertising and marketing, an interest in business practices and ethics, inspiration, religion, mediums, clarity, enlightenment, receptivity to "The Force", reactions to the media, windows, mirrors, and the refraction of light.  These keywords demonstrate multi-faceted characteristics of Poseidon.  We already know that Neptune diffuses light (awareness) and may cloud judgment, yet also manifests as "illumination".
Poseidon is currently transiting retrograde (rx) at 10+ degrees of Scorpio, in a separating square (tension) from Ceres, Greek Goddess of Agriculture or grain, in the sign of "the collective", Aquarius. Ceres' glyph is a sickle on the cross of matter and resembles an upside-down Saturn .  Ceres is the daughter of Saturn and the sister of Jupiter.  She is considered the "mother" Goddess providing maternal nurturing and sustenance while Saturn provides a protective structural foundation (Earth) by which to plant her seeds, both literally and figuratively. Both Saturn and Ceres are parental figures, feeling most content when relationships with their children are happy.

Ceres (Romans), or Demeter, as the Greeks refer to her, was worshiped for her service to mankind and the "common-folk".  She symbolizes the need for nurturing, food, the relationship between mother and child, issues of “caring for and about” people, teaching the people about planting, growing, gardening, animals, herbs, and grains. She symbolizes "the harvest" grain, or the wheat sheaf. Ceres is linked to eating disorders.

Demeter is also linked to Poseidon through Greek myth. Poseidon/Neptune in the form of a stallion pursued Demeter in the form of a mare and raped her, later giving birth to Persephone

I was recently made aware that Egypt purchases more wheat grain from the U.S., than other countries.  We witness the symbolic tension demonstrated between Ceres (grain) and Poseidon (water) in the skies.  Without water, grain won't germinate and provide the desired harvest. We're witnessing current tensions between wheat growers (farmers) and and big businesses like Monsanto, who want to take over the food industry, threatening Organic Food growers and patenting more genetically modified toxic, chemical laden "round up" ready seeds.  These toxic seeds are planted into the Earth, and leach into ground water, polluting rivers, streams and subsequently our oceans and ocean-life. Animals, livestock, insects, and birds eat this toxic grain, causing illness over the lifespan. Genetic mutations are subsequently passed on to their offspring. We, the people, purchase, then eat, these chemical laden, genetically modified meats.  Most people are unaware of the dangers lurking in our Nations food supply.  We need to educate ourselves and others about health, and the methods by which optimum health is obtained.
