What makes you feel nurtured? How do you feel when you are the one who must nurture yourself, rather than receiving that care from a partner or parental figure? If someone close to you desires you to feed, teach or care for them, how do you tend to respond? These and related questions could emerge today, described by Venus and Mars in Virgo square Ceres in Sagittarius.
Square aspects are about needing to take action, and it looks like that action could just as easily be the decision to allow yourself to receive as it could be the decision to ‘do’ for yourself. Maybe a little of both? You might also notice if you have a ‘philosophy’ of sorts about this issue that is currently at odds with your actual needs. Consider whether the models for nurturing and nourishing that you grew up with are working for you; it might be time to seek a new mentor or model for this facet of life. Being willing to analyze what’s really going on for you and then trying something new may relieve some tension, and also offer a new way forward — in your self-care, and in your relationships with others as well.
