In astrology, each planet in our solar system is symbolically associated with specific archetypes, characteristics, themes, and patterns in human experience. The discovery in 2005 of Eris a dwarf planet beyond Pluto was therefore an event of great significance for astrology as well as astronomy.
In this unique book, Keiron Le Grice considers the astrological significance of Eris. How, he asks, can we determine Eris's meaning? With what archetypal themes is it associated? In what ways might the myths of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife, be relevant to the astrological meaning? What can the discovery of Eris tell us about the evolutionary challenges we face today?
Drawing on a broad range of perspectives mythology, ecology, religion, history, philosophy, and Jungian psychology Le Grice carefully constructs a multifaceted picture of Eris's possible meaning, helping to illumine the unprecedented events of our time and offering clues to our possible future directions."
