Remember Eris?  I like checking in on her periodically.  She’s still in Aries, and will remain there for a very long time. 2044-ish, retrograde motion has her hovering back and forth between Aries and Taurus for a few years.   She’s a trouble-maker in the first degree. She likes to stir up rivalries, especially between siblings or cousins.  She sows misinformation, disinformation, and outright lies. Her finger points at you.  And, she is dangerously seductive.  Drugs, alcohol and other mood-altering substances may tone her down, or up, but they’re not necessary for her to act-out or manipulate someone else.   She carries with her a daggar, a hissing snake, and/or a burning torch.  She’s responsible for starting the Trojan War.

Her zodiacal placements will show you where you need to build: strength, ferocity, and backbone.  Ugh.

I’ve been tracking her since 2006 and if you put in “Eris” on the search bar you can read all my posts.  This  particular post in 2012 helps to put today in perspective.

Mars, ruler of Aries, represents the God of War, masculine style.  Eris, in mythology, is his counterpart, feminine version, a Goddess of War.    Mars demands. Acts assertively, and sometimes aggressively in pursuit of his desires, wants, and entitlements.  As I write this, Mars is in Sagittarious heating up media stuff.  Watch what happens in about 5-6 weeks when Mars joins Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter/Lunar Nodes in Capricorn.

 

 

Meanwhile, Eris has reached the 24th degree. This adds a new spin on our interpretations for Eris.  The astrological mandala known as the Sabian Symbols as interpreted by Dane Rudhyar says,

“Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”

This suggests an ‘openness to the influx of spiritual energies’.   ..the individual consciousness represented by (wherever you have Aries in your chart), is receiving a more concentrated influx of spiritual energy.

And, there are influences.  Until recently, Uranus was in Aries too, 2011-2019, and since his cycle is 84 years chances are you will not have to live thru *that* kind of extreme turbulence again.  Interestingly, Chiron, our Wounded Healer, also entered Aries in March of 2019.  This might indeed add to your pain threshold and open some old wounds,  the significence of Chiron here is on healing as opposed to curing.   Chiron’s cycle is ~50 years so if you are near to that age Chiron becomes the something you need to look at.  Consult your astrologer.

It’s a complicated time and there are blessings in the sky as well.   Neptune in Pisces will indeed enter in thru open windows.  Spiritual healing is available to the masses as well as individuals. What we can do is create the willingness to connect to spiritual energy and let go of the outcome.

Namaste.

 

 

 

Astrology Eris

 

“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.

still,

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.

Astrology Eris

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?

Chiron/Neptune 2010 – The Rescue?   Stay tuned.

Astrology Eris philosophy Planets and their Cycles

In this post we find that Eris has shifted back into the energetic orb of 21 degrees of Aries.

In this post we learned that the 21st degree of Aries corresponds to the Sabian Symbol : “A Pugilist Enters The Ring”

Go here now………………..

The Universe works in some amazing ways.
