Eris Musings

July 28th chart

I've had a bit of an epiphany about how Eris likes to show up in my life. It all started when I was reading an entry on April's blog called The Unexamined Life. She posed the question "Are you able to create when you're happy?" (I'm paraphrasing) I started thinking about it and realized that usually the source of my unhappiness is not creating. Julia Cameron writes a lot about how when artists aren't creating drama through their work, they create it in their lives. That tends to be the case for me.

Then Beth (who blogs at Starry Night Astrology and
Astrology Explored) asked what I thought about Eris now. I had to think about it a bit. I read the Eris myth, again. Holy, lightbulb moment Batman! Eris causes strife and discord basically because she was ignored. When I ignore my creativity what do I get? Strife and discord.
