Eris, Julian Assange & Wikileaks

Here is an update on a post I wrote about Julian Assange back in 2010*. Here we are in 2016 and Wikileaks may decide the fate of the USA! Currently Assange is taking refuge at the Embassy of Equador in London. On the day of the Aries Eris/Uranus Full Moon, Assange’s internet access was cut off. It was said this was due to WikiLeaks interfering with the results of the US election.

Assange himself has a natal 8th house Sun in a T-square to Uranus opposite Eris, so he is a great facilitator of this revelatory Uranus/Eris energy. At the same time these Eris apple bombs are being counter-bombed by sexual accusations from the Democrats. Of course Assange himself has also been accused of rape. It seems with Eris, the forbidden fruit of sex and occulted information, go hand-in-hand.

Julian Assange the founder of Wiki-leaks* is still on the run from the Swedish police. There is an interpol warrant out for his arrest for an alleged rape. The latest news is that Paypal have withdrawn their services. Assange was being funded by donations to his site, no doubt a phone call from Hillary did the trick. Assange’s birth details are now available. (but we didn’t have his time in 2010.) Looking at his horoscope I find his T square to the Sun the most revealing with respect to his image as an outlaw and renegade.

I think personally Assange’s efforts to expose the corruption of governments is something to be applauded and am not surprised that Uranus should feature strongly in his chart. Astrology King’s interpretation of Sun square Uranus describes Assange pretty well.

 “Their need to express their distinctive ego through their personality and career can often cause conflict with others because it can come across as abrupt, rebellious or just weird. There is no doubt however, that the tension of the square aspects pushes these people to achieve brilliance in creative self expression…of a different kind.”

But there is a Plutonic edge to Assange also, the uncovering the festering toxicity of the elite makes him an activist. He is not simply a rebel without a cause which can be one of the failings of the Uranus square. It goes much deeper.

Eris/Uranus T square to Sun

Assange stands out from other Uranian weirdos because his Sun is caught in a T-square between Uranus opposition Eris. This was within a 1º orb from May-July in 1971 (the year he was born) and again in March/April 1972. This is a great opportunity to study Eris for me. The archetype of Eris shows very strongly in Assange. Eris is the Goddess of discord and even her discovery caused ructions.

Julian Assange HoroscopeIn Eris’s anger and hurt at not being invited to Peleus and Thetis wedding, she decided to rock the boat by throwing a golden apple inscribed “To the fairest” into the wedding party. This apple bomb was deemed responsible for the Trojan war. This ‘wedding’ for Assange in modern times could be the mainstream media club and Hollywood glitterati.

So in a chart, Eris is where you are made the scapegoat, it’s the ugly duckling that doesn’t fit into the ‘cool’ gang  It’s where you scream “The Emperor has no clothes!”. Uranus doesn’t give a monkeys if he doesn’t fit in. If fact most of the time he is blissfully unaware that he is experienced as bonkers.

Eris on the other hand cares very much. Her attitude is “One day I’ll show you”. She wants payback on all the playground teasing, she wants divine retribution. Conversely, where Uranus is sometimes self-conscious, awkward and uncomfortable in social situations, Eris relishes in her “outlaw” status, milking it for all its worth. Unfortunately this bravado only serves to alienate her even more.

Eris in Astrology ~ Exposes & Scandal

Eris’s general attitude is one of “If you can’t join them, beat them!”. She can be jealous and vengeful also, just as Ereshkigal was towards her sister Innana in the Mesopotamian version of the Persephone myth. Innana being the Venus/Aphrodite archetype. Eris is the shadow, like Pluto. She seems to be a cross between Pluto and Uranus, but dipped in Martian red warpaint. She is a Dark Goddess, but with some of the Neptune mysticism of Lilith, but far more upfront and bolshy. Lilith is seductive and bewitching, while Eris is a ruthless predator when it comes to ensnaring her man.

The list of famous people with Eris in hard aspect or conjunct the AC or MC shows feisty women, political agitators, trouble makers and a few sex scandals.

At 3º orb; Galileo, Einstein, Bill Clinton, Timothy Leary, General Franco, Hermann Goering, Ronald Reagan, Fidel Casto, John Lennon, Joan Collins, Elizabeth Taylor, Reggie Kray, Michaelangelo, Milton, Rock Hudson, Glenda Jackson, Cindy Sherman, Nicolas Cage, Princess Margaret of Great Britain, Titanic hits Iceberg, The Bali Bombing, Jeffrey Archer, Tracy Emin, Eve Sedgwick, Joan Baez, Cat Sevens, Barbra Streisand, Camila Parker-Bowles, Christopher Lee, George Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Cher.

Julian Assange, an Eris/Uranus Revelator

Back to Julian Assange. His Eris is not on an angle, but looking at the above list he really would fit in there. He has the vampy look of Christopher Lee, the sex scandals of Clinton and the christ-like status of Lennon. Assange has been demonized by the US government like Timothy Leary, who was once called by President Nixon ‘the most dangerous man in America.’ Galileo’s ideas on heliocentrism had him under house arrest in the last years of his life having being labelled a heretic by the Church. Another aspect of Eris is her connection to Persephone. It has a Persephone type orbit and Zane Stein’s interpretation draws from this. Of course Persephone has a connection with rape. We cant speculation on his guilt with the rape allegations, but being falsely accused can ruin your reputation for ever. Mud sticks..

The Eris rape theme mirrors the so called ‘victims’ experience that after going through the darkness, survivors take back their power and become Queens. This describes Ereshkigal’s descent into the underworld of being stripped of her belongings and then hung out on a meat hook. It also seems to describe what has happened to Julian himself. Stripped of his support from Paypal and having to go underground from being hounded by the establishment.

The 1971/72 Eris/Uranus Opposition

Assange had Eris square his Sun when he was born in July 1971. In Sept 71 Uranus opposed Eris exactly. This happened again in June/July of 1972. I remember the early 1970’s as a really free time. Sexual liberation was at its height and it seemed that the 60’s ideals of individualism had reached its frilly peak of velvet suits, ridiculous bell bottoms and platform shoes. Sex was safe without a condom. TV comics were sexist and politically incorrect. The atmosphere is very well portrayed in “Life On Mars”, a British cop show set in 1973.

Eris, (like Gene Hunt in the cop show), takes the law into her own hands and is an obvious Alpha of her gender. Like Anne Boleyn, Eris wants to be Queen and could never be content with being a mere mistress. Eris will fight for the underdog, see that justice is done and cannot abide hypocrisy. Eris is the ultimate Warrior Queen and being a Goddess she does not do things in the normal linear left-brain way.

Eris challenges the concept of power, encourages you to stand up to the bullies and turn the tables. Eris is the only match for Pluto because she can play him at his own game, twisting his power moves to suit her own agenda. Eris ducks and dives, stealing Pluto’s invisible helmet at times. Eris bides her time, waiting for the optimum moment to shock her audience. Then she will suddenly rip off her disguise to reveal flaming red tresses and her fearsome fiery whistle-blowing breath. Assange is part renegade cop Gene Hunt and part Anne Boleyn. Henry VIII’s second wife was branded as a witch , just as Assange is now being witch-hunted. In Dec 5 2010, at the time of the rape accusation, Assange had Tr Saturn square his Sun square Eris.

Assange’s Synastry with the US

us-assangeIn the light of Paypal’s withdrawal of support. I thought it important to look at Assange’s effect on the US Sibley chart. Most interesting is Assange’s Mercury conjunct the US Mercury, both are in the occult 8th house. (UPDATE 2016. Now we know Assange’s time we see the US and Assange share a Sagittarius Ascendant.) The 8th house rules conspiracy, scandal and espionage while Mercury is the communication of such matters. Assange works as a permanent Mercury transit exposing the US’s 8th house corruption and deep dark secrets. Assange’s true Lilith/Pluto conjunction is conjunct the US MC which is very telling. That’s a pretty dark spectre that Assange is playing on the US’s reputation in the world.

Uranus/Eris 2016, Assange & The US Election

triwheelCurrently Assange’s Mercury star, Pollux, is making its influence felt. Pollux is regarded as the “Evil twin”. With Mercury, Robson says Pollux will give an “Unbalanced mind, unpopular and peculiar occupation, trouble with father through relatives or enemies.” [3] I would read ‘father’ as the State also. Pollux writes about uncomfortable, taboo and shadow issues which can be a threat to State control. Both the US and Assange’s Mercury are conjunct, but due to precession the US’s Mercury is not on Pollux, but instead on Procyon in Ursa Minor. Both Mercurys however are still being squared by the Uranus/Eris conjunction, triggered by the October 16 Eris Awaken’s Full Moon. The day London pulled the plug on Assange’s internet (Mercury!) connection.

If you look at the tri-wheel you can see both US and Assange are experiencing the same challenge of karmic Saturn in their first houses. The US has Saturn right on its Ascendant degree currently. Uranus/Eris were instrumental in the Brexit vote as they were square the UK Moon (with Ceres also). For Assange this Uranus/Eris is not exact yet. Mercury also rules the US 7th house of open enemies, very crucial right now with relations souring between the US and Russia. But who really is the open enemy of the US? Assange is being accused of being the enemy, and a Russian spy of course…

  1. Ciao, Marina,
    Brilliant analysis and, with this article, you’ve taking your writing to the next level.
    Forza! Avanti!

  2. Its worth noting too – if the 8.02 am chart is correct for Hilary – that she has pr. Sun and Mercury opposite Sirius and pr Moon square! Remember the “best and the worst” in humanity via Sirius! IN the a.m chart she also has Algol conj the desc. This might make sense of her bizarre facial expressions etc which have been interpreted as various illnesses? Her pr MC is conjunct Venus and Mercury in the 12th of the natal .. actually there’s so much subterfuge in her secondary progressions you need to really have a look rather than me describe it!!! Obama also has tr Pluto on his pr MC opposing Sirius. The transit of Pluto opposite Sirius is of course for everyone now – his role, the way I see it is as a somewhat weak middle ground with his pr Sun at 6° Libra – no particularly strong aspects to Pluto, Uranus or Sirius ATM. Averge strategy, no power but keeping up appearances in Libran fashion.
    DT btw also has Algol on his natal MC (over to you Marina!) and pr Mercury on his 12th house Pluto – the truth and nothing but the truth from a deep deep source. His PR Sun is in Virgo ( the small precise hand gesture where his palm is raised and his forefinger and thumb make a circle is an involuntary yoga dhyana mudra – absolute concentration required for meditation!) His tr N node is opposed by tr Neptune so as Joni Patry says – he is sacrificial in this play! He is definitely a tool for the exposure of something even if he doesn’t win the election!
    Assange’s pr Moon is exact conj Sirius now and trine tr Jupiter which is conj his pr MC.
    If his asc is correct (only a B on astro) Hilary’s entire Scorpio stellium sits within it – like a scorpion burrowing its way through…HIs PR sun and Venus are conj in Leo and conjunct DT’s natal Mars – so he’s ore helpful to DT than HC perhaps although she also has a somewhat counter “spirit of Leo” stellium of Mars Pluto and Saturn…killjoy!

    Anyway – the icing on my Sirian cake is this – a multi composite for the three charts, DT, HC and JA reveals Saturn conjunct Sirius! Let the WORK commence! Magick of huge proportions!

    1. This whole Sirius connection is really interesting. I really have to do a feature on this star. My daughter has Saturn on Sirius square her Sun and she loves dogs. Dogs as protectors and guides goes back millennia.

      I don’t know about the 8am time, but Algol on Hillary’s DC would more likely be how she views her enemies. I’m finishing off a post on Hillary today. Coincidently I wrote in the post that I have used Chelsea’s chart as the mirror into which I could view the Algol Medusa… safely!

      I hope Assange is ok. Saw quite few concerned tweets on Twitter this morning!

  3. Assange has Sun conj Sirius which is conj the US chart sun too (well, one of them!) The developments and progress of the US as a result may be a much bigger Sirian issue. The Moon in the birth chart for the first presidential inauguration is also at 16 Cancer – so on Sirius.
    When the Tibetan Master mentor of Alice Bialey, Djwhal Khul, was asked what forces were responsible for the world crisis during World War II, he listed as the number one cause “a welling up of magnetic force on Sirius, which produces effects upon our solar system and particularly upon our Earth.” He proclaimed the Sirian energies stimulated both the best and the worst in humanity, as depicted in the global conflict. (this being WW2 at the time) Djwhal Khul further notes that certain basic changes in the orientation of the Earth’s axis are now taking place … and periods of upheaval, confusion and cataclysm always precede these great shifts in the planet’s axis. He also divulges the planet is in process of taking an initiation, marked by the great event of an axis shift as the Earth literally “repolarises” itself. A recent monitoring oft he Earth’s magnetosphere shows it is breaking down rapidly and the prospect of a pole flip is real.
    Sirius is also associated with liberation; in fact, according to ancient teachings, the very concept of freedom itself resides in human consciousness because of the influence of the Sirius star system. This teaching holds that the very mind of the human species is delivered from Sirius. Many countries celebrate some kind of freedom day around the time the Sun conjuncts Sirius and in 1993–1994, as the “great conjunction” of Sirius A and B approached, a wave of freedom swept our world culminating in the breakdown of the communist rule in Europe and the liberation of the Russian people from the hard-line Communist party. The Berlin Wall fell as the cold war ended … these events transpired simultaneously with the magnetic forces building to their highest intensity on Sirius.
    I have no idea what the electromagnetic output of Sirius is at the moment but it is always very very strong. (being a blue white star) Assange and wiki leaks may well have a purging influence on the whole institution of US politics and the actual office of president. Although the degrees are not exact its worth noting that the field of influence from a celestial body carries working well after the geometric conjunction has passed. Despite being “cut off” wiki leaks is not going away.
    Which ever way you cut this astrologically, there is something very dark on the horizon!

  4. you can do what you want with your fake prophets and I will do my own fascist revolution in my way ! watch your step next time !

    1. Hi Alex, You would meet those Eris energies in relationships. Your partner may be your own Eris shadow and be a bit of a hellraiser.

  5. My MC is 9 Aries. Eris is conjunct it at 9′

    Eros is conjunct my Jupiter Aries at 13 Aries-H10

    Psyche is conjunct my natal sun at 29 Cancer-H1

    Pandora is conjunct my ASC at 25 Cancer

    Ceres is conjunct natal moon at 17 Pisces-H9

    Is is unusual to have so many exact asteroid conjuncts in your natal chart ??

    I did well in modelling for a very long time & was self taught as a needlecraft designer & artist- illustrator..

    It seems I have always had to rely on my own devices in Life;

    Be my own cheering section- so to speak- & face the worst alone- GG

  6. The coming full moon will hit his natal Mars directly. Will he throw his toys out of the pram?

    1. Ha ha! I might just do that myself. My Lilith at 22 deg Aqua, conjunct Mars at 23 deg Aqua.

  7. I read the above messages and
    found them very interesting to me as a self-taught student of astrology. What nags at me is unease about Bradley Manning. Why did he provide the information to Julian Assange? Surely he was aware that he would be tried for treason, which allows for execution in America. I personally am glad Assange has exposed the underbelly of diplomacy, and after reading your comments on his chart, I feel less worry about Assange. However, does anyone have chart information on Manning?

    1. Hi Pattylu, I haven’t been able to find the time of birth for Manning, but born December 17, 1987, Crescent, Oklahoma. When I get time I would like to look into his chart, must be torture for him.

    2. Chelsea Manning (aka Bradley) is currently being detained …. again. Perhaps because she is declining to ‘give evidence’ against Assange. Chelsea was pardoned by Obama, but apparently ‘they’ want Assange THAT badly they are prepared to violate anyone’s rights!
