Sedna New Moon

ika4550bpGlendonite is a Calcium Carbonate (think clamshell) that preserves the shape of Crystals of spiky superhydrated unstable Ikaite that forms in near-freezing water at the bottom of fjords, but disintegrates at lower pressure.  Ikaite is a hybrid of Ice and Stone.  It’s an apt symbol for Rebirth into new Forms and Patterns after a period of exile.

Lots coming up here!  As is often the case, I’m inspired to look things up by Kelley Hunter’s Moon Post…

Here are the main events…

  • Sedna New Moon, August 25, quarter after 7am PDT: Sedna turns Retrograde some 5 minutes after the New Moon!  This will make the next month, and especially the next two weeks, an essay on Sedna.  If I had to summarize the influence of Sedna in a few words, I think I’d pick…

The exposure of loooong-standing Patterns as self-sabotaging, and the opportunity to shift them, with potentially Life-Changing consequences – but only if they’re addressed with reverence and compassion!

  • The same theme is strongly reinforced by the Juno-Pluto Opposition that’s exact on August 29.  The current 4-year Juno-Pluto Cycle is about the Choice between self-sabotage and self-support.

Pluto Initiated Juno on January 14, 2013 in 10 of Capricorn, “An Albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor.”  The Albatross is a symbol of good luck unless you kill it, in which case it becomes a curse.  How similar to the Sedna myth!

  • And reinforced yet again by Haumea‘s September 17 Initiation of the North Node, birthing entirely new and unexpected Patterns that will serve us well.  And reinforced yet further by Eris on the South Node.

Haumea is Pele’s daughter and the Hawaiian Goddess of Fertility.  Her Initiation of the North Node occurs at 21 Libra, “A Sunday crowd enjoying the beach,” which Rudhyar reads as a society renewing itself through contact with Nature and itself.

The Haumea-Eris Opposition, which is exact December 3, enters within it’s three degrees of Sensitivity in a few days.  Haumea-North Node Opposite Eris-South Node is another perfect metaphor for “The exposure of loooong-standing Patterns as self-sabotaging, and the opportunity to shift them, with potentially life-changing consequences.” 

Because of the Herculean time scale involved and still-uncertain orbits, it’s hard to be sure about the Eris-Haumea Initiation, but 29 Taurus (in 1598) is a possibility: “The first Mockingbird of spring,” which again reinforces the possibility of Life-Changing shifts.

  • Back to August 25, Saturn Initiates Mars about five hours after the New Moon.  This 2-year Cycle is about how efficiently we Focus the use of our Energy.  We all have limited Energy – physical, emotional, intellectual, Spiritual.  How often do we use it for The Most Important Thing?

The Initiation occurs at 18 Scorpio, “A path through Woods brilliant with multicolored splendor.”  Which is glorious, but there is a hint there of Autumn, as if The Most Important Thing might be for us to enjoy the splendor while beginning to prepare for winter.  Dry some of those ‘Shrooms, or put up a few jars of Soup.
