A Second Look at Ceres: MAY 2014

A Second Look at Ceres

In 2006, science suddenly made Ceres important, just as important as Pluto. As astrologers, we all know that only a fool would ignore the potency of Pluto, and its recent demotion hasn’t taken the wallop out of a Pluto transit.

So is Ceres now an equal cosmic heavy? Seems unlikely, even if one only considers the shortness of its cycles. On the other hand, green is in and oil may be on its way out.

Why this emphasis on Ceres now? Does Ceres really have a new or more important part to play in life on earth? It’s time to re-examine Ceres’ role in society and our individual lives.

A professional astrologer since 1980 and a certified hypnotist, Kathleen lives in Black Mountain, NC, where she also has a consulting practice. She is a member of NCGR, ISAR, AFA and Friends of Astrology, Inc.

She began studying astrology in the late 1970s in New York. Her first teachers were Zoltan Mason and Henry Weingarten. She is currently working on the third level of NCGR’s certification program.

In the early to mid-1990s, when she lived in the northern New Jersey-Orange County, New York area, Kathleen wrote a weekly non-sunsign astrology column for the local bi-state newspaper and had a short weekly cable TV program called “Astrology Update,” also non-sunsign. In the 1980s and early 1990s, she served on the board of the New York City chapter of the NCGR as both membership and hospitality chairman.

After moving back to the Chicago area in 1995, she was one of the re-founding members of the Southwest Suburban Chicago chapter of the NCGR and served briefly on the board. She has spoken for the NCGR and other organizations in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area, as well as for the NCGR and Friends of Astrology, Inc. in the Chicago area. She also does introductory astrology lectures for the general public and community groups throughout the Chicago area. She is presently a member of the board of Friends of Astrology
