The three great female deities of ancient Olympus – Hera, Demeter, and Hestia, the birth sisters of the gods Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades – ruled this sacred Greek mountain.
These symbols, Olympian gods, have been suppressed throughout our history by strengthening the rule of the male creative principle.
Still, they are abundantly present as the most important parts of astrology readings.
These are the names of asteroids (some of them), and they are presented deeply in our natal charts.
Today we are talking of one particular Demeter or Ceres, like the asteroid that is in charge of the family, kids, and in general those relations.
Here we will examine its placement in the Cancer Zodiac sign.
This person feels best if he or she can do a lot of work at home, and when he or she has a lot of children, and to raise them with a lot of love.
There will be a lot of home work from cooking, washing, ironing to some hard repairs, etc.
This position of Ceres is very interesting in this way since when it appears in the Cancer sign, it shows that the person has or needs a lot of maternal care – giving or receiving, it does not matter.
This aspect brings so much greatness in the sense of family love. Those who have this position of Ceres are truly made to have families to cuddle and to give them a lot of love.
But, this position of Ceres in Cancer can turn into its opposite and become something that does not work well, in any sense.
It can turn into drama, where the person will feel unworthy, unable to love or be love, give or receive love, everything opposite of a healthy relationship with the family members or lovers.
In some way, this is an emotional madness. This position brings one feeling that no one can love you, that you cannot love anyone else that no one cares for you, etc.
Here we can see a lot of grief that is typically associated with the dramatic Cancer – and what is needed is to provide a lot of kisses and hugs. This will blow away all those ugly thoughts.
All of this does not carry any relevance, but you must be aware of it when you are a parent, and when you have a child with this Ceres position.
In this way, you will know, without a doubt, what your child needs, or in some cases, a partner.
And more importantly, do not neglect this need and behavior if you notice, but try to make it go away. Certainly, you have a lot of love to make it go away.
Personality and Soulmate
People with this position of Ceres in the Cancer sign create the most homely and comfortable atmosphere at home so that everyone will feel the best about them. You could imagine how the family of this person feels or a lover or spouse.
Here there is a pronounced need to take care of all people in their surroundings, and they certainly want to be taken care of in return. This personality is very needy; do not make a mistake about it.
So, if your soulmate has this position of Ceres, do not be lazy. Take care of them, and they will make you worthy for sure.
The problem arises when these people do not feel loved, they have a feeling that everyone hates them – in this case, a loving nature turns into its opposite, then they become needy, demanding, and boring individuals.
And everyone will walk away from this person if such behavior continues for a longer period of time.
One more thing is relevant – have in mind that a food play an extremely important role as this person likes to eat when he or she is happy and when is unhappy.
Those individuals with this position of Ceres, if they were well cared for as children, then they will be able to take great care of others, and if they neglected them or received too much love, they may become overly dependent on attention.
Neither of these cases is good, and they appear when Ceres is badly inspected with other planets in the natal chart.
The asteroid Ceres in the sign of Cancer gives a tendency to care about others, compassion, and discord in the expression of emotions – the reality in people’s personalities is somewhere in between.

One of the most important traits for her is fidelity and loyalty to her husband, herself, and family. Family life is in the first place for her, so she will teach them to become that and to respect family values, know their relatives, home, and family tradition. They will instill family values in their children as the most important, introduce them to their roots.
