In 2005, our solar system officially became a dwarf planet richer. The planet got the insanely interesting name Eris. Her name refers to the Greek goddess of struggle and dispute. The most famous story about this goddess has to do with a golden apple as symbol and a particularly profound response towards rejection which unleashed a whole battle-avalanche, we know as the Trojan War. In astrology we consider finding a new planet in our solar system as the birth of a new consciousness in the collective. I investigated in this work my version of the Goddess of struggle and dispute within. In the process of creation, I experienced this archetype as a seductive, fearless force that dares to approach battle or dispute in a sensual, unorthodox manner. With courage and persevering passion, she dares to turn my focus to the seed of inner struggle, seducing me to go deeper and deeper. Promising me to become the golden apple in human form.
HONORING THE SKELETTON
Resurrection is a work that mirrors my recent Puto encounter. In our personal horoscope Pluto can show us when and where we have to dig our own grave, step into it, smell and taste fear and despair, before the the coffin magically reopens. Purification from powerlessness and a new connection with truth and trust is the treasure we gain. The treasure box I opened was an unconditional trust in- and focus on WE within me.
