Discovered in 2005 and named after the Greek goddess of chaos and discord, Eris is an emerging archetype that can help us understand the area’s in our lives we most need to build strength, ferocity and backbone.

The dwarf planet takes 556 years to orbit the Sun and is currently passing through the sign of Aries and has been since the 1920’s. That means that anyone with planets in Aries, or the moon in this feisty fire sign potentially has the influence of the planet.

Eris’ Mythic Story…

The story goes that Eris was NOT invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. Feeling miffed she tossed a golden apple into the wedding party with the inscription for the most beautiful one. The goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite all laid claim to the apple and the title.
