Hybris was a goddess of insolence, impudence and outrageous behavior in ancient Greece. She gave her name to our word “hubris”, meaning excessive pride or arrogance.
Astrologically, Hybris represents the quality of going too far, taking things to extremes, openly flouting normal behaviors or social conventions, often leading to one’s downfall. There can be a break from reality, an inflated self-perception, an overestimate of one’s own talents, abilities, accomplishments or competence. It is associated with excessive or foolish pride, arrogance, lack of restraint and extreme or outlandish behaviors.
