Eris in Greek mythology, typologies of personality

In Greek mythology, Zeus ceased to have interest in Thetis when the oracle predicted that the son arising out of the union would be more powerful than his father. For this reason, he looked for the right man for her and he chose Peleus, the hero who fought along with Heracles. Thetis did not liked the idea of becoming the wife of a mere mortal, but changed her mind when Zeus promised to organize a wedding to be attended by all the gods of Olympus.

However, appeared Eris, the goddess of discord, even though she had not been invited to the wedding, and in the middle of the feast launched an apple with the following inscription: "for the most beautiful". Just then, three divinities claimed for the apple: Hera, goddess of marriage and obligation; Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy; and Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love.

Because they were unable to agree among themselves, they asked Zeus to decide which of them belonged the apple, but he did not wanted to be involved and delegated the decision to Paris, a pastor of Mount Ida.  

The apple with the inscription symbolizes a section of the manual of a typology, such as for example the planets, aspects, signs or houses in astrology; the arcana of the Tarot, the characters in mythology, or profiles in psychological tests.

Astrologically, (136199) Eris is related with the ability to assign correctly the categories of a typology to a specific aspect of a situation or person, and vice versa.

Birth of the astrological psychology

The first prediscovery of (136199) Eris, clashed in the '50s, with the first tests of personality in psychology and with the birth of the psychological astrology:

"From the experiences of the era of Zurich I was able to get rid of the classic way of thinking that exist around astrology. In that way, since 1955, I dedicated myself to make a true basic research and, on the basis of the incentives mentioned above and with the help of batteries of psychological tests carefully selected, I managed to define the exact meanings and clearly delimited between the signs, houses, the planets and the seven main types of aspects." (Bruno Huber)

In the '50s, the statistic research of Gauquelin was a clear example of the discord of (136199) Eris, because according to the results, the eminent professionals were not associated to the conjunction of the planet with 10th House cusp, but to its golden aspect.

The following prediscoveries occurred quite continuous since the year 1982, clashing with the resurgence of the psychological astrology in the '80s and '90s, with well-known authors such as Robert Hand, Bil Tierney, Karen Hamaker-Zondag, Tracy Marks, Melanie Reinhart, Erin Sullivan, Sue Tompkins, Liz Green and Howard Sasportas.

In fact, (136199) Eris is related with any kind of typology, such as the psychological mythology of Jean Shinoda Bolen ("Goddesses in Everywoman", 1984), or the esoteric psychology of Annie Marquier ("Free Your True Self", 1999).

Humanistic psychology

The first prediscovery of (136199) Eris in the '50s, also clashed with the birth of humanistic psychology, which focuses on the elimination of inappropriate roles that had been assumed, and wich damage the personality, to replace them by other more suitable to one's self.

Humanistic psychology considers each human being as unique and unrepeatable, which reaches levels of consciousness every time higher and more integrated, between the different parts of one self and the social relationships that are formed during the course of self-realization.

Carl G. Jung, whose book "Psychological Types" (1921) describes a typology of 4x2 categories, which correspond to the four astrological elements (fire, earth, air and water) and the two directions of movement (direct and retrograde), has Eris at the Crossing Point of the Age Progressions (Houses Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope). In the Signs Horoscope, Eris in Pisces forms a trine with Mercury in Cancer, and in the Houses Horoscope, Eris in the 2nd House forms a square with Mars in the 11th House.

Sedna, the goddess of Arctic Ocean in Inuit mythology

In Inuit mythology, Sedna was the mother and goddess of all sea creatures.

Initially Sedna was a beautiful and young Inuit woman who lived with his father. Again and again she rejected the suitors who wanted to marry her, until she eventually married a dog, happily settling in on an island. However, the dog drowned and she returned with his father.

After a short period of time, her father saw approaching a hunter to the camp and offered his daughter as a wife. He was a man elegantly wrapped in skins, even though his face was hidden. He promised taking her to his island where she would have plenty of food and skins for clothing and shelter. Finally Sedna agreed to marry him and climbed aboard the canoe of the hunter, heading to her new home.

When they arrived to the island, the hunter downed his hood revealing that he was not a man as she thought, but a bird disguised. She screamed and tried to escape, but he grabbed her and dragged her to a clearing at the edge of the cliff. The new home of Sedna was a bunch of feathers on the hard and cold rock. The only option of food was raw fish, which he brought after hours of searching it.

Sedna was very unhappy. Cried and cried, calling again and again to her father. Through the howls of the arctic wind he could hear the cry of his daughter; he knew she was sad. He load his canoe and set off, crossing the cold Arctic Ocean, heading toward the place where Sedna was. When he arrived, she was on the shore. Sedna quickly climbed into the canoe, hugged her father, and together they left the scene.

After several hours of journey, Sedna looked back and saw a black dot in the distant horizon. Fear gripped her, because she knew that it was her enraged husband, flying in her search.

The big bird suddenly appeared, descending nosedive toward the canoe. His father tried to hit him repeatedly with the oar without achieving it, while the big bird in flight was pursuing relentlessly. The big bird fell sharply near the canoe, accompanied by a flock of big ugly birds which began to beat the wings with great force flush with the surface of the ocean. A violent storm was unleashed.

His father was more and more scared. At a given moment, he grabbed Sedna and threw it to the water, shouting: "There is your beautiful woman! Take it, but let me go!" Sedna screamed, while she was fighting against the numbness of the body in the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean. She swam and reached the canoe, but as she hold on to the edge of it, her father hit her fingers with the rowing. She screamed, resisting and trying to dissuade him, but without success: her frozen fingers break off and she collapsed on to the water.

Because she had acquired part of the powers of her husband, as the fingers of Sedna sank into the depths, turned into seals. Sedna tried again, until her frozen hands break off. This time, as they sank, turned into whales and other large mammals.

Finally, Sedna also fell and began to sank. At the bottom of the ocean she reunited with her first husband (the dog) and became the goddess of all sea creatures.

Sedna rewarded the people of the land with food from the sea, whenever hunters showed respect toward animals. Without her blessing, the hunts failed and the people starve.

By invoking Sedna, the Inuit shamans traveled with their spirits into the depths of the ocean to clean and combed her hair, something that she could not do for herself because of the lack of fingers.

The orbit is between Neptune and the farest region of the scattered disc, forms an orbital piercing from Neptune to Uranus. It has a perihelion of 28.51 AU and an aphelion of 216.54 AU. The semimajor axis is at 122.53 AU. It has an orbital period of 1356 years. It has an inclination of 5.7º.

At the end of the '60, shortly before the perihelion of (54520) 2000 PJ30, snowboarding began to be practiced. In the video game "SSX" (PS2, 2000), which appeared during the discovery of (54520) 2000 PJ30, the most notable characteristic was the many hidden shortcuts that were to be discovered by chance and pass through unexplored and unforeseen areas.

(54520) 2000 PJ30 is related with any kind of hazardous physical activity, but very unusual, although incorporating some common elements of the most popular sports. The type of activity chosen is always very personal, but it always provides intense emotions and at the same time the feeling of novelty.
