She’s holding at 23 Aries and retrograde.

The Sabian Symbol is:

A PREGNANT WOMAN IN LIGHT SUMMER’S DRESS with the Keynote word as “Fecundity”  Dane Rudyhar goes on to write about this degree. “This is the third stage of the fifth five-fold sequence of cyclic phases,  It combines the two preceding ones and suggests INNER FULFILLMENT.”


hRMpf!  Not with Saturn there, that’s for sure! It’s been a rough time for Earth’s population.   Eris, the goddess of strife, is all about tension and the zodiac sign of  Aries is always ready for action. (more tension) Being opposed (180 degrees of separation) for so long(months, and month, and months!) has certainly brought  a keener understanding that the rules and obligations we have been living under have , just perhaps, become irrelevant?

Saturn will be moving into Scorpio in early Oct.  Eris will be less restricted in manifesting some inner fulfillment then.


May all beings be kind. May all beings be in peace.  May all beings live in ease. ,

sunconjerisRemember Eris?  The goddess of chaos , strife, and rivalry.  It didn’t matter where she went.  It didn’t matter who started what, when, or whether she participated, or not.  Chaos.  Strife.  Everywhere. Outside the home.  Inside the home.  Outside in the world.  Everywhere.  Eris in Aries stirs things up.  She thrives on stress, emergencies, and high alert states.

If you were born between 1940 – 1949 then Uranus is moving into a conjunction with your natal Eris and that should make for some interesting and unexpected changes.  Let me know what happens!

This  all feels  potentially volatile  to me, and yet fraught with  exciting possibilities that have not quite yet been revealed.  There’s no knowing the outcome, we can only be present for the process.  The cycle of Uranus takes 84 years;  Eris – 557 years.

2012 continues to be a very significant year in so many ways.

The zodiac sign of Aries fires up the unpredictableness of all this chaotic strife.  Fire signs do that.  Heat things up.  And, with Aries it can get out of control really fast because innocent impulses are like that.  Fortunately, there’s enough water present in the current configurations to balance it out………..a bit.

Mars aspects gives us lots of ways it can all go.  Make your choices.  Stop the war.

Om shanti, shanti, shantihi.

So, are we understanding the metaphorical meaning of the word “strife & discord”, now?  (See past posts on ERIS)

The next 36 hours will provide a clue towards answering that question.  The moon is approaching her monthly conjunction with Eris, the goddess of chaos.

Practice deep breathing……………..every breath.

Om shanti Om.

Let’s start with today.  Nov. 5, 2008 and check the ephemeris.  She’s moving back into the 21st degree-zone on Nov. 10.   Hmmm……and then in March, 09 she makes a quick little wiggle and returns to the 22nd degree-zone.   chiron2

Let’s check the Sabian Symbols again………………..


21deg. Aries – A Puglist Enters the Ring.

22 deg. Aries – The Gate to the Garden of All-Fulfilled Desires.


Once again astrology seems to describe current day events.  Looking at the track of Eris it’s easy to see that this dance of change will continue for  quite some years to come.

Eris moves very, very slow in a zodiac segment (aries)  that prefers to move things along  swiftly.  It’s quite the dilemma for this goddess of strife.  How does one allow conflicting tensions to co-exist with peace?  What happens when you synthesize the sensations of ‘slow’ with the sensations of ‘fast’ ?

Does time stop?

It appears to me that Eris tends to go retrograde a lot. I guess that’s because it’s so very, very far away. Retrograde motion (the appearance of going backwards) is common in astrology. The time period when the planet is in the process of switching is called ‘stationing’. Most astrologers agree that when a planet ‘stations’ the ‘energy of that planet’ intensifies. Yuck. Eris intensifying doesn’t sound like much fun. Eris, remember, is the goddess of strife.

So look at the data above and you’ll see that on July 9 she turned retrograde and sometime in mid-January, 2008 she’ll resume forward motion. (Click on the data for the link to the rest of it)

Hmmm. Not sure what this means, however I’d prefer forward motion myself unless we can actually clean up and resolve some of this worldly strife that seems to be affecting everyone, everywhere.

Today, as stated in this last post, we’re looking at 22degrees of Aries for some interpretive material. Last time we looked into Dane Rudyhar’s degree analysis. Today we’ll look at Dr. Marc Edmund Jones for some clues.

In his book, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, he writes that “this is a symbol of man’s uncompromisting faith in the fact of his being…..” He goes on to say that “Here is self-fulfillment in the realization that there are always unlimited days ahead and that immeasurable frontiers are yet to be crossed.”

Sounds good to me. However by October we’re back to the difficulty of 21 deg. Aries where there is a “complete lack of personal sensitiveness”. Ugh.

With Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, and Mars all getting ready to enter into Cardinal signs, Eris is likely to be quite stimulated over the next few decades!

coming up to 21AR29.11

opportunity knocks……………………….


So, the last time we discussed Eris we were talking about strife, discord, and chaos; looking for where in our lives those circumstances are showing up.

For me, Eris lands smack in the center of my tenth house which is also populated by an Aries North Node.

Eris in the tenth seems to be showing up by placing me in circumstances where I must ‘publicly’ assert myself in ways that are habitually uncomfortable. Hmm, that deserves a portion of my meditation time.

Today had been March 31, 2007 and I can honestly say that there’s an awful lot of ‘strife’ in the world. My observations lead me to believe that the root cause is not Eris, or any other thing that is ‘outside’ of ourselves. Heal the strife within…..


April 9, 2007……thought I’d check in with Eris, the goddess of strife, discord, and struggles. Philip Sedgewick gives the astronomical position of Eris as 20AR46 as of April 2. When you have an orbiting planet/asteroid as far away as Eris is it helps to have some kind of reference/resource to help us understand. The Sabien Symbol for 21AR is ” A Pugilist Enters The Ring”. (I am refering to Dane Rudyhar’s book titled The Astrological Mandala) When Eris reaches 22AR, the forecast lightens up tremendously…..we then get to experience “the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires.” Wow! Sounds special, doesn’t it? Let’s check back in and see when it’ll reach the twenty-second degree of Aries? …..April 30, 2007……enjoy it while it lasts because in Oct it develops retrograde motion and returns to the stance of the pugilist.

Webster defines the pugilist as: ___________________ (Fill in the blank)

Time passes slowly sometimes. Now it’s May 30, 2007 and Eris hasn’t budged. Continuing strife, discord and chaos……. and I can see the light, too.

Moving thru this kind of Eris energy for decades without end can be really, really, stressful.

May all beings be peaceful.

Re-ordering the Solar System

Astronomers often disagree over what it is exactly that they’re seeing. Recently, we’ve watched them downgrade planets to dwarf planets, and discover new dwarf planets that share our Sun. It takes a long time for science to prove something. Astrologers are also cautious when faced with the task of interpreting the symbolism and metaphysical energy of a new orbiting body. What the astrologers do is to look closely at the current conditions on earth and begin to weave those details into the mythology of the named planet. What’s so amazing is that when one looks backward to the history, it is so clear how each planet and it’s astrological interpretations are ideally reflective of the conditions on earth.

Eris was officially announced to the world in July of 2005. In mythology she was the goddess of strife, discord, contention and rivalry. Hmmm, look around. See anything? The State of The Planet, perhaps? This is how it works when a new energy enters into our consciousness. Because Eris is so very far away she tends to remain in a zodiac sign for a very, very, very long time. She’s been traveling thru Aries now since April 1924 and she’ll be in that sign until 2045. Where is Aries in your natal chart?

Eris, The Goddess of Discord

One way to think about this would be to draw an analogy to the place where you live. Imagine for a moment that tomorrow when you wake up your home has suddently doubled in size with brand new rooms you’ve never seen or entered into before. It might take some time to ‘process’ that new information!

For now there’s nothing more to think about other than to figure out where in your life are you experiencing strife, discord & rivalry and how to deal with it. I suggest attending a yoga class.

Astrology Planets and their Cycles


“It isn’t the mountain ahead that wears you out:  it’s the grain of sand in your shoe.”  ~Robert W. Service

Recently at our Salon for Astrological Discourse we discussed the mythological and astrological Eris, a dwarf planet discovered in 2005.

It’s always worth the time to note the events that are going on (around the planet) at the time of astronomical discoveries.  There’s an inherent connection (as above, so below) and current events will mirror the theme.  This is how astrologers advanced the science/art thru out the ages.

In 2004-5 the headlines got bolder, larger, and louder.

Hurricane Katrina and the 7.6 Earthquake killing 73,000 in Pakistan were devastating events.

The media grew to global proportions becoming more pervasive  and less persuasive.

The Iraq war was in full swing.

And, righeriswithapplet along with those major events came the unexpected Academy Award Winner, Million-Dollar Baby featuring a skinny Hillary Swank in boxing gear.

Eris arrives.  The milliondollarbabyoscarfeminine warrior archetype let us know beginning in 2004-05  that she is in our consciousness now and will be reckoned with.   Before it’s  discovery a planet still impacts our history, but it’s after we have named and claimed the new orbiting body that it becomes *visible* and a part of our consciousness.  In 2005 she had made her way to 20 degrees of Aries.  She caught my attention in 2007 when I first blogged about her.  Here’s a link to other posts about Eris on this website.

It takes Eris 557 earth years to complete her orbit.  This keeps her in a zodiac sign for many generations of humans.  We’ve been enduring her wrath in Aries since 1923 and she’ll remain in Aries until 2047.  Aries is fire, masculine, and action oriented…. exactly the kind of feisty climate Eris enjoys.

In the Greek myths, Eris was a trouble maker who always felt snubbed.  The rest of the pantheon avoided her because they knew how easily provoked she was.  And, when she was provoked she would create chaos, dissent, and rivalry among everyone around her.  Astrologically, this goddess of disruption is particularly good at creating family discord…that’s where she’s ‘at her best’.  Her small, subtle actions frequently have a way of mushrooming into something huge and disruprive….like pulling out that one little thread and suddenly the whole garment unravels.

On July 10, 2017  Mars squared Eris and the headlines of the day regarding our First Family couldn’t have been a more perfect expression of Eris in action.  For those interested in Mundane Astrology, I remind you that Eris is at 8 degrees Aries in the chart of the USA.


May all beings be healthy.  May all beings be happy.  May all beings live in peace, no matter what they’re given.

Om shanti, shanti, shantihi.
