If you have any of the outer planets connected to a personal planet, (Sun, moon, Venus, mercury, mars) then it is important.

Eris has awakened in 2016 through being together in the sky with the planet Uranus. Uranus is the shake it up and change maker of the zodiac. One can see the impact of the awaked Eris throughout the world.

Here is the back ground on Eris. She is called the trouble maker, the goddess of discord, and represents being left out, disregarded and really pissed off about it.

“Eris in Mythology, the Primordial Greek goddess of discord, chaos, quarrels and feuds, the spirit of friction, battle-strife and hostility. The role of Eris as the goddess of discord brought dissension and disputes between families and different factions. She played her part in the causes of wars and disharmony and feuds between families and friends, she indirectly started the Trojan War. The conflict began when all the gods and goddesses were invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, save one – Eris. To avenge this slight, Eris threw the golden apple of discord to the guests of the wedding feast. The golden apple had “for the fairest” written on it and Hera and Athena and Aphrodite all claimed it. Paris, the Prince of Troy, awarded it to Aphrodite beginning a chain of events that led to the Trojan War.” (greekmythology.com)

It also is representing how long it can take until there is more equality and justice so others are not shut out of the fun and abundance at lives party.

The circumstances of overt cutting others out leads to war, if not directly then indirectly. Countries that are impoverished may not directly declare way, but the actions of those turning their backs and ignoring because they don’t fit in, don’t like, or are not part of the click or club can eventually push a button that ignites the bomb.
