For weeks, I've been writing profiles for my forthcoming book on Eris, of famous provocateurs and connections in their natal charts with dwarf planet Eris. Naturally, Joan Rivers was among those receiving a special page. When news hit of our losing Joan on Sept. 4th, I was deeply saddened to have to modify my comments from is to was. For those curious about Joan's chart, and her recent transits, here is how her profile page now reads, in memorium ...
Joan Rivers, June 8, 1933, 2:00 AM, Brooklyn Heights, NH (Group C)
In standup, QVC, Celebrity Apprentice, best selling books and her YouTube show, In Bed with Joan, she improved with age and served others via God’s Love We Deliver. We were stunned to lose her at a youthful 81. At her passing, Eris squared her Pluto, (8th house ruler) from 22 Aries, and T. Jupiter at 10 Leo exactly trined her natal Eris. These transits affirm Eris as a factor in life events, though we cannot presume them to be predictive of death. As with other outer planet transits, there are numerous levels on which Eris energy can manifest. We can only know that when Eris touches our lives, we will be forever changed, and as an agent of Eris, due to its conjunction to Joan’s AC, she too changed those whose lives she touched. She will be greatly missed!
