Mercury quincunx Eris

In Yankee Doodle Discord, we find that Mercury quincunx Eris can be a momentous aspect, marking an event that is talked about widely and can be part of some great happening. On a personal level, Martha Washington began her education with this aspect, and her training in estate management would be one of her endearing qualities which impressed George Washington. Alexander Hamilton died under this aspect, and he became immortalized as a fallen Founding Father, with the circumstances of his death ruining the career of Aaron Burr. ¬†Eris was quincunx Mercury in Theodore Roosevelt’s chart when his features were chosen to be carved on Mount Rushmore. Finally, the aspect is found in the chart for the bombing of Hiroshima, marking the beginning of the Atomic Age and leading to the Cold War, with more than 40 years of tension between the Capitalist and Communist nations. In this chart, Eris seems a bit threatening by sitting on the Ascendant, but with the Moon in opposition, and Venus and Jupiter moving towards a square, the discord may not be as bad as it seems.
