The Pluto Eris Experience – Pluto Square Eris 2019-2021

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Pluto Square Eris

Pluto Square Eris is upon us, albeit not exact until December 2020.

To get a clearer concept of what we might expect from this alignment, I looked into historic aspects between these two.  And now my mind is blown.

But first, I need to clarify something. When Eris was discovered in 2005, a gigantic Pluto-sized Dwarf planet, astronomers called it Xena. Then they settled upon Eris, the Goddess of Strife. In the stories, she seemed to be in a perpetual snit because of not being invited to some patriarchal event. Screw that. Some pushed for it to be called Persephone but that name was already in use, attached to an asteroid 399.

But I see Eris as Persephone, the victim turned Queen of the Underworld. The most modern version of her story – where she was carried off by Pluto – is but the latest version. In ancient times, she was a Change Goddess, a chthonic deity like Pluto and one of her many titles was “the Mistress.”

When You See Eris, Think Persephone, Queen Of The Underworld, Shadow Boss and Change Goddess

When you see Eris, at least here on this site, think Persephone.

So Pluto Square Eris is in effect from now until the end of 2021. It is a catalyst for next-level feminism and women’s rights. I actually typed ‘rites’ but corrected it.

As Pluto moves slowly and Eris even more so, their alignments are rare.  Here they are and alongside the significant historical events that occurred with them, at least the ones pertaining to women. Reminder – Pluto Square Eris stays/stayed in effect for the year before and after the exact date.

Pluto Eris Aspects Timeline And Dates

Pluto Conjunct Eris – @18° Sagittarius – December 1756:  The last (official) witch execution. Veronica Zeritschin was 19. Rest in power, Veronica, rest in power. The only hell was that created in this world by the Inquisition. And their abuse in the name of religion was the evil.

 

Pluto Square Eris – @24° Gemini/Pisces – January 1909: It was the first International Women’s Day, Marion Dunlop became the first imprisoned Suffragette to go on hunger strike and the Women’s Tax Resistance League was formed. Refusing to pay tax without direction political representation, their slogan was “No Vote – No Tax.”

Pluto Opposite Eris – @13° and 14° Libra/Aries – August 1978, March 1979 and May 1979: Feminists made history with the biggest march ever (at that point) in support for the Equal Rights Amendment. Women opened the world’s first Rape Crisis center. Britain elected a female Prime Minister. The U.S.A. passed legislation making it illegal for employers to discriminate against women for being pregnant or at ‘risk’ of becoming pregnant. Judy Chicago’s epic feminist art installation – The Dinner Party – was put on display. It was significant, a symbolic herstory of women in Western civilization; ancient Goddesses silenced sages like Hypatia, healers, witches, scribes, inventors, rebel Queens, and so-called whores.

Pluto Square Eris – @23° Capricorn/Aries – December 2020: What will this bring? Given the themes of the previous alignments (and the #MeToo movement that ignited in recent times with Uranus conjunct Eris), I think it will be revolutionary and female-themed. FYI Rahaf al Qunun has Eris-Persephone conjunct her Mars in Aries. And she made her bold bid for freedom from the repressive regime of her birth on a Solar Eclipse, conjunct – yes – Pluto.

Thoughts? Fuq yes: Many.

The book I want to write about my life will have a Persephone theme.

And last week when I was under immense stress and feeling trapped I had a flashback to me in a previous life along time ago. I was about 19 years old. Young, blonde and willowy. LOL.

Yes I was trapped and so distressed. I think I was being accused of being a witch. The pain was intense.

For some who didn’t know, in the 70’s and up into the 80’s a woman could not get a loan for a house even if in well paid work and deposit unless she was married or her parents went guarantor. Know a few women who married gay men just to be able to buy a house! ALL bank managers were men then and believe me they made very difficult if you were an independent working woman with an overdraft or wanted a business loan to expand. My bank now is all women and my medical clinic has all women doctors.… Read more »

Hi Mystic. I am trying to get my head around the square relationships between Pluto and Eris. How do we account for such a long first quarter from 1756 to 1909; followed by waxing square to opposition 1909 to 1978; then from opposition to third quarter square is 1978 to 2020? The time periods go from about 150 years, to 70 years to 40 years approx. I would appreciate your comments on this. Thanks.

my thoughts are that you’re amazing, and thank you for joining the dots on the pluto/eris-persephone square. Combined with Uranus in Taurus, I forsee much change and genuine female empowerment, grassroots, inside out. I have Eris-Persephone in Aries conjunct my rising, along with Lilith in Aries (not conjunct), so I am on board.

Empancipation and liberation of Saudi women and millions of others still the property of fathers, brothers, husbands would be grand. The end of forced child marriages across the USA and myriad other countries. Liberation from post modernism squashing us back into the box of enforced partriarchal gender roles and stripping woman from women. Liberation of female thinkers at universities who have been no platformed and silenced for the last 5 years. Liberation from media that infantalises and turns women into headless objects. The establishment of laws that actually protect women in their homes. A return to respecting the devine feminine… Read more »

This is such an interesting and amazing post. <3 I have heard "bad" things about Eris (primarily from male astrologers) and so I love this recasting/reclamation of her as Persephone, Queen Of The Underworld, Shadow Boss and Change Goddess. <3

The three pillars of the patriarch.

1). Exclusion. Exclusion from clubs, opportunity, employment, education, travel, heroines, history, priesthood, venerated dieties, power positions in every sphere and the like.

2). Ridicule. Mother-in-law jokes. Old wives’ tales. Body shaming and ridicule—breasts, mensturation, pregnancy, Emotional shaming: hysterical (testerical over Gillette much?) belittling of physical characteristics and stereotypes of stupid. Lexicon filled with misogynist terms for which there is no male equilavent.

3) Violence. Intimidation, threats, murder, rape, assault, mayhem and general physical power over. Taking up space like manspreading.

As I develop this, there might be a fourth, and that is of labor ownership. The conventional housewife’s labor was owned by her husband—unacknowledged, unappreciated and not compensated while “his” earnings were all his to walk away yet she is Mrs. — the other half. Take for example the splatter about Bezos being the richest man and how his divorce will halve his wealth. Ahhh. Wait a minute. Half was hers from the start so he never was the richest man. Or maybe the divorce will cost her half of her wealth. And why hasn’t she been listed as the… Read more »

Yes the everyday work of running a household and parenting children so often falls to women. Capitalism needs someone at home to manage this for free, everyone desiring things to minimise labour/enhance sex appeal/get ahead, and everyone nuked into separate households with no communality or shared support. You can’t take down the patriarchy without examining the capitalist nightmare. At the moment my fb feed is absolutely dominated by discussions on the Gillette ad and Marie Kondo. Not a coincidence I think.

So glad you said this. Above AAC says a lot and I wanted to add something but you have now opened the way. If anyone else tells me we abolished slavery way back when I can’t help pointing out that slavery is still alive, well and thriving in many communities and countries. Women all over the world are still subject to this barbaric practice and the sooner the globe can realise the better.
There said it.

Here to express my regard for all the powerful, strong, vulnerable, wise beings here and elsewhere that support and guide and protect. In my natal chart Eris is on my NN and she has by transit been trining my Sun. Such interesting things to wonder about and investigate.

Mystic, I humbly submit that you may be perpetuating the exclusion of Eris from the pantheon party, by calling the planet Persephone and applying that mythology, rather than the dynamic, independent, confrontational, mischievous, deep cultural-level sh-tstirring energy that is Eris goddess of discord. Of course no one likes her. She wrecks parties and illusions 🙂

Eris is conjunct my MC and opposite Pluto.

HelMM Member

I agree with you, i am born in may 79, and i sort of liked thinking of her as a female Mars. A fire energy restless, proud and fearless. I see Persephole as a more regal and dark undreground character.

In discordia concors. The harmony of/in disharmony. The chaos of life that we cannot understand ( from a limited perspective) but that has a harmony to it apparent to the gods/ sages.

Another fun fact about Eris (the dwarf planet) is that it is one of the most reflective bodies in the solar system – apparently reflecting back 96% of the light that hits it. This got me thinking about Eris (the mythical figure) and why she was never really welcomed at social events. My thought is that perhaps the gods loathed her because she was able to reflect back to them their own shortcomings/shadow selves – and who would be comfortable with someone like that around?

Natal sun Venus Eris conjunction,feeling less victimy by the hour I once spoke of outer planet cock blocks, now I’m interested in what they look like making amends for what bs men have done in their names. With the age of reason over, and the internet like a vast field of the uninvited trying to decide if it’s all a hologram or if that’s just dear based conditioning, will those who did the underworld work just develop another lame power over others based scenario? I can’t imagine how it is that 60,000 years of homo sapiens and we still judge… Read more »

Eris/Persephone is now conjunct my natal moon (voc). The Sun, Moon, South Node and Mercury and Juno/Venus and Lilith/Uranus look like their supporting this too on the 14th-ish Dec 2020. Mars is almost conj Eris too. Interesting time a comin!!

This sounds exciting.
But if Eris is in Aries, wasn’t Uranus conjunct Eris when the MT movement started and not square?

Rahaf Al-Qunun has attracted my eye to her story over recent time. I was glad she landed in Canada, and not here. It was at the history of the burned girls, but only after seeing this piece of Judy Chicago’s powerful message at the end, that i shivered deeply.

Just reminds me of the dream I had many moons ago where I was Persephone. My bedroom was an old ruin of a small rock house. There was a metal bed, the ground was overgrown wild grass, climbing weeds and wild flowers. Snakes were on a ladder beckoning me to the UnderWorld. The overwhelming feeling in the dream was peace and quiet power won through conquering and transcending darkness. It was like I could visit both worlds and keep my peace and power. That’s how I gained my wisdom. The surreal, light and ethereal feeling of the dream was very… Read more »

I am shivering. I think you all probably know exactly why two 13 yr old girls were abominably disrespected by the witch hunting elder men, and evidence screwed with (scientifically! By toutatis, by the rage of all the Goddesses!) before being utterly shredded, bodily and in reputation. O my goodness, we will let the disinfecting Light shine true. We will protect and hold each other firmly, lovingly NOW. Some of the women will have swords and fires, and some little ones will be curled up healing behind the circles of them. And every ring of the circles has the highest… Read more »

Right now I feel like a little one curled up healing behind the circle of mothers and sisters. I don’t want to go out, I don’t want to talk in case I get into trouble. Silence and hiding away is my protection. Not very brave I know. I did have a dream a long time ago where I was one of many people who were to be burned. But I was on the outskirts of the massive burn and was saved by a male friend on a very small brown horse. The thing is I remember the village trial. But… Read more »

allowing yourself to curl up IS VERY BRAVE. It means you will not renounce faith in a place, space and people who give you time to carve for yourself. holding fast to that faith is bravery, especially in the face of the propaganda that wants to undo the last things you have, by removing your right to peaceful rest and regeneration. that dream is real, and here you are xx
