“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.

 

—stay tuned for more on Eris.

Astrology Eris

The new moon at 10 Aries.  The Cardinal Square is aligning and the moon beginning today, will be  giving us a taste of what is to come.  So much change, so fast can be frightening and disorienting for many.  Others get  inspired by all the adrenalin that gets secreted during times like these.  There is no right/wrong way to respond to major change in your life.  There are simply too many variables with too many different context’s to judge.  For me, Ram Dass coined the best mantra for times like this when he wrote:  Be Here Now.  And yoga has taught me that Now, is only 1 breath long.

Between April 16 – April 25, 2014  some of the certified planets of our particular solar system will be coming into an alignment that the astrologer’s call a planetary picture.  Rather than get into the astronomy and physics of the upcoming alignment I’d prefer to write about how to manage our lives thru this unprecedented time in human history.  Yes.  It’s that big.  We talked about it on International Astrology Day.

The planets  involved in this configuration are:  Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter, Mars, and on April 20 the moon will join the group and act as a trigger.   The Sun moves thru the sensitive area beginning around 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 away enough as she continues to inspire calamity & chaos whilst traveling thru Aries.  More on Eris another time.

It’s easy to see the cross configuration that’s setting up, and the fact that all the planets are in cardinal signs will make this into a dynamic period of time unlike anything we have seen before.  This particular alignment has never occurred before in human history.

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.

Maybe?

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.

chaostheory….around the cosmos these days. The recent new moon has jumpstarted the energy that was forecast by the recent equinox/full moon. This lunar month promises to keep things stirred up for a while.

Meanwhile, much further away than the moon, on April 4 Eris moved to 21AR01’58”, a mile-marker for this distant planetoid. The Sabian Symbol for this degree reads: THE GATE TO THE GARDEN OF ALL FULFILLED DESIRES. The keynote says: Abundance made possible by human together-ness and cooperation. Eris will remain in this degree until November, 2008…which, interestingly, coincides with the next shift of the Mayan Calendar, the beginning of Day Six.

Given all that I’ve been following with spinning planets, ancient calendars, and A New Earth birthing, it’s become increasingly important to continue with my yoga practice. How else can we possibly integrate all that is happening? Being Here and Now feels good and removes the stress of multiple possibilities in a changing world.

Early this morning I read Barbara Hand Clow’s New Moon horoscope which was the inspiration for this post. Below is a small part of her article (including the link so you can read all of it).

From the perspective of the Mayan Calendar and astrology, we are in the darkest days of Night Five, and I feel like I am seeing the probabilities very clearly. With this New Moon in Aries, we enter the most critical phase of the Galactic Underworld since it began in 1999-a phase I label “evolutionary bifurcation.” Using Chaos Theory (an advanced math system examining the way natural systems change and evolve), a bifurcation happens when an old evolutionary pattern is collapsing while a new wave is building. During great evolutionary shifts, mature species are no longer able to adapt to changing conditions, such as the extinction of the dinosaurs when placental mammals emerged 63 million years ago. With the breaking point-the bifurcation-evolution continues through new species while the old ones die off. This is always a very dangerous moment for any creature that wants to survive. As humans, if we are to survive, we must move to a more cosmic level and re-enter the universe. We need to consciously flow with the new wave while keeping ourselves free from the collapsing systems.

When you look at all of the astrological aspects within the context of the Mayan Calendar it all makes perfect sense. I am reminded of the Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.”

It’s getting very interesting.

On a personal note, I’ve entered the balsamic phase of my personal lunar cycle. Phew. Resting will feel good today.

Om Nimah Shavaya.

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”

Astrology Eris

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.
