ERIS! The New Kid on the Block

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.

  5. Stupid people make me laugh…. The Word of God is clear, the heavens and the stars are put there to PROVE His existance, not to predict the future or plan out each move by way of HIS SCIENCES. Isaiah 47:13
    All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. What is coming is big time trouble and all your foolishness will not save you from God’s wrath. Wake up and get on your knees and ask God to help you. The world is about to change and it’s not going to be pretty

      UH –Like the astrologers who first found jesus?YEAH they used astrology–the VERY first christians were astrologers–if you REALLY are a christian keep your mind as a child and dont assume you know so much–about gods plan–or HOW god reveals different stuff to different people in whatever discipline or “religion” they follow.

  8. […] March 30 – April 6, depending on what orb you like to work with.   And then there’s Eris, a little bit too far away to factor into this Cardinal Cross, but,  twenty-one degrees is not far […]
