Eureka Flash – As we know, the allegations against Hollywood power-broker Harvey Weinstein have launched a torrent of disclosure and accusations against powerful men who have been abusing their positions to harass and abuse women. And it’s been both triggering and therapeutic to read or hear of these tales. But I just had a eureka flash re the actual astrology of the time – the one force I have been missing in all this: ERIS.
So on October 10, the day the Harvey story broke, Eris was still loosely conjunct Uranus but she was in trine to Saturn in Sagittarius near Lilith AND the North Node in Leo.
So at the time I picked up on the Lilith presence but Lilith Vibe, though disdainful of conventional patriarchal values, is generally outside the system. Lilith is outsider female energy – this is more like the system is dismantled and rebuilt.
So Eris – I am often remiss in thinking about and discussing the astrological Eris, in part because I think of the planet as being more Persephone in nature. This gives her Queen of the Underworld, triumphant survivor turned thrivalist type themes.
The other reason I am not mad keen on looking into Eris/Persephone is that she moves even more slowly than Neptune so we All have her in Aries…But she is unmistakably a part of the astral signature of this ongoing feminist revival.
