The Pluto Eris Square And Next Level Feminism


The Pluto Eris square seems synchronized with some sensational next level feminism. Examples? Gymnast Aly Raisman’s extraordinary victim impact statement and speech/confrontation of her abuser in court.  The Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson “no longer pandering to men” talks at the marches in America. Self-help material zinging around on Facebook referring to the post-patriarchy.

But while all this has been no threat to integrated, people, there is a spike in the incidence of a certain type of person showing off low-level hostility and aggro toward women. Petty power trips and casual misogyny.  Both lower vibe guys and the ladies who enable them. With this in mind and given it’s not always possible to distance yourself from lower-Mars energy, we should update our F-Wit Management Strategies.

Pluto forces change and Eris – which I think of as more Persephone, the Shadow-Queen – is feminine empowerment. And the Pluto Eris square is rousing primal witch vibe, threatening the patriarchy as it rises.

The Pluto Eris Square Is Waking Up Primal Witch Vibe

A certain strain of sexism really stings. It is usually something that is manifestly unfair, being blamed or shamed for something that is either not our fault or not anything to be ashamed about. And even though the person doing it is often a non-entity or relic seeking to smear someone else to cover their rancidity, it can hurt.

Though the pre-frontal cortex bit of the brain rationalizes the situation and reacts logically, the limbic system remembers old abusive scenarios. Darker still, there is a collective memory of religious persecution against women.  Being judged or mocked for being too ‘slutty’, ‘weird’ ‘single’ or ‘old’ evokes the shadow of the witch hunters.

So what to do?

Take steps, however small for now, toward life policies that minimize contact with such people?

But they have always been with us and probably always will, thriving in some eras more than others. There seems to be no better strategy than dealing with the root pain or trauma (as above) that the F-Wit triggers or echoes.

That and refusing to go along with even micro-abuses or diminishment of females purely because toxic patriarchy would prefer to have them marginalized. I’m not even putting up with the ‘cat lady’ term as an insult.

And then, of course, there is the oldest revenge spell in the world: Living Well.

Toxic workplace sitch is up to eleven and Grand Psychopath on the rampage. After a minor breakdown last week I am back to full Defcon 1st House Pluto / Uranus (to borrow dark star’s wonderful term). It’s pretty good to realise that while it’s irritating and stressful, it’s not the end of the world. Fuq her – in the scheme of Operation Awesome she’s a minor troll. In fact it’s galvanised my resolve to finish the unfinished uni thing and get out of the cube farm asap. Am considering taking time off without pay to get it done quicker and… Read more »

Amazing chrysalis
Its so nice to realise that we can pole-vault over a sticky morass of unnecessary complexity because we have a more clear direction in mind. Espesh if it locks into the old grooves… Am relating to this. hard, emotional work! But rising above because it feels good to be free! Also: later, punks.

ChrysalisMM Member

Sheesh I hope so, pi. It’s horrible at the cube farm right now, absolutely exhausting. But I am determined.

Times like that I’m probably grateful for having Venus in Aries and a sharp tongue and maybe sword wielding sister of Ares on my MC. Don’t even care if I shoot someone down, if I think it’s worth it. Sometimes it is a paint scraping sideswipe as I’ll figure the direct approach is less effective but i make sure they get the message. Quite happy to render their unconscious prejudices as conscious as possible 😀

I was stabbed by said sword a few days ago. One day, sharing of a dream where this person understood emotions I was going through that I did not share verbally. Next day, I was triggered by comments from same person. They cut so deep. Not sure if it was intentional but obviously this person can tap in due to our strong connection (not sexual btw). Took me a while to recover but one thing that is pulling me through is my Uranus rising, like a beacon of rebellious independence. Learn from it, move on from it. In the end,… Read more »

Going to the root for ourselves is where it’s at for me. Sometimes there’s an easy release from the soil, sometimes it’s so unfamiliar to what we thought we planted we imagine it can’t be ours and belongs in someone else’s garden and then perhaps sometimes we get drunk on it’s juices as they soak though our skin whilst tugging at the root that we forget why we started. Sometimes we yank on the bloody thing so hard hoping to quickly remove it before anybody notices and make out like it was never there to begin with although the gaping… Read more »

I’ll also just clarify that I’m not referring to anything outside of my own frame and definitely not relating my comments toward the gender or political environment currently or historically.

PiMM Member

Your last para, agree.

My fuq-wit strategy has always reflected my multi-Piscean ways. Higher Pisces reaction = seeing the weak and damaged parts of their psyche and feeling compassion and therefore “Forgive them O Lord for they know not what they do”.

Low Pisces reaction = instant, walls up, Pisces blank-eyed stare and internal observations of all they ways fuq-wit is obviously an inferior idiot not to be believed and if they are, they’re sure as hell not going to see any reaction out of me apart from aforementioned blank-eyed stare. And probably some maddening, pass-agg behaviour for the foreseeable future just because I can.

I am writing this while still seething, LIVID over an email I just received from a client that he would have never sent to a male business partner.

No, they will always be around, and yes, healing the original trauma is a good idea.

In the meantime? Be loud, be heard, roar (don´t scream)!

A friend shared recently how a man accused her of being over-emotional. Normally this would have triggered shame and apologies from her, but instead she surprised herself (and likely him) by guffawing in his face and then moving the conversation forward.

I suppose: It’s worth mentioning that Aly could well have been counseled by many around her that she should “not let [her abuser] take up mental space” and not bother attending the trial or talking at it. This absolutely does happen. Victims of abuse are blamed all the time for revealing the abuse or told to move on with their lives, and not bother being angry with or wanting to confront either the abuser or the people who enabled it. Sometimes, the person, or the people upset about knowing about it, need/s to be confronted and forced to look at… Read more »

On witch burnings…I can’t stand the echo. Just keep calmly reminding them. I am here now. I manage a household. I own property. I do not have a wife or servants. I have a right to life. Unbelievable this is still a thing. Like a single adult female is still a debatable creature. No more. Is this really important? Why, yes, managing my own business is important. Now quietly fuq off.

milleunanotteMM Member

Yes you are very much Here.

I’m profoundly touched to have met you. Have always had an old photograph of yours, i think more than one, flash into my mind at various times. The wild power and the sadness in those images have somehow assured me it is more than fine to be as i am, too.

Thanks love. You come to my mind too. In moments when I think I may be too bold to be acceptable. Strange to be close to a stranger. 🙂

I think something of my presence is off settling to people. I have theories about why. I have noticed if I look in their eyes and listen to them – it doesn’t matter what they are saying – they calm down. Trying to use that trick in business in 2018.

Very timely. Playing out directly in my domestic and work situations. I also felt it shift in the collective around the weekend. I have power. Not a lot but enough to claim my own life. Baseline. Enough to not be threatened by every jab. And if I am kidding myself about that, someone is going to have to come from the shadows and explain that sht to me. Face to face. Calm. Just – explain? So far, just shadows. On a more practical note, I cut all dairy, grains, alcohol, sugar, et al. From my diet. My mood is much… Read more »

Famous Italian poet Alda Merini wrote: “The best revenge is being happy”.


“And the reason is because though the pre-frontal cortex bit of the brain can absolutely rationalise the situation and react logically, in one’s power – the limbic system is reminded of old abusive scenarios or even – why the fuq not – once upon a lifetime scenarios of witch burnings and women been driven naked from cities, Hypatia, the whole damned deal. That’s my theory.” It’s a good theory. I just can’t congruise the pre-frontal cortex with the limbic. Fuq, l’m on the bloody warpath.

Cheery zen attitude. I love this. Sometimes I remind myself that this is the only defence.
I’ll make sure to make this my ongoing mantra.

Wonder Women-

Aly’s mom- smacked revered basketball coach and company loyalist –

Judge Aquilina, holding creeper md/trainer feet to the fire of truth- was the first female JAG Officer in the Michigan Army National Guard.

Every victim who has faced him- in public court- and sacrificed anonymity to say out loud what she endured.

The victims too scared to speak out but who endure nonetheless.
