The dwarf planet Eris, named after the goddess of strife and discord (in mythology the opposite of Harmony), was discovered in 2005. It moves very slowly, entering Aries in 1926 and not exiting till 2047. Tr Uranus is conjunct at the moment and over the next few months as it hovers around 22 and 23 Aries, so the conjunction stays in effect until April next year.
Reading some of the other astrologers who’ve studied it more closely (writing some years back) – it’s fascinating how on the button it is.
Eris: pain & sorrows; lawlessness; bloodthirsty. Melancholia and sorrow mixed with raging anger. ‘Eris gave birth to energy that will punish perjurers or those who don`t honour their oaths. She will see to it that those who lie to win are punished.’
In mythology Eris was the uninvited guest to the party – disowned and exiled, the 13th fairy that cursed the sleeping beauty. She will take everyone down with her if she feels she has been treated unfairly or disrespected. She exposes hypocrisy and takes and eye for an eye.
She’s not all vengefulness and spite however. She’s also clever, good at stimulating the slothful to exertion and she uses positive envy as a motivation – other people are doing better than me so I should work harder.
