The latest addition to our solar system is Senda; what does that mean? And will it affect all signs of astrology? NASA released the story that they discovered a new planet in our solar system, 6.2 billion miles from Earth, called Sedna. The actual discovery date was November 14, 2003. The story was released on March 15, 2004. It is named after the Innuit goddess of the ocean. To make this discovery even sweeter, the story of the discovery of the Hubble telescope the night before it was discontinued by NASA was released for security and financial reasons. This discovery seems to have saved the fate of the Hubble (at least for the time being). Does this mean that the virgin of the world is now given a new life and the archetype that represents the virgin? Or does it affect the other astrological signs? It will take some time to say it. Sedna is moving very slowly and is currently making its way through the last dean (10 degrees) of Taurus.
To understand how Senda affects all astrological signs, let's take a quick look at the Sedna myth. It starts with Sedna being forced, as a young girl, to marry a man she is not interested in. Senda has very long hair that is known to sit and brush for hours. Despite her arguments and protests, she should marry this man who has a beaked face and lives on an inhospitable island to which he will take her as soon as they are married. As his wife, she is miserable, forced to live in a cold, bleak environment and eat nothing but fish. She is so unhappy that she sends her plight home and asks to be saved. Her father and male relatives come by boat to fetch her, but once she is in the boat, her husband, who has become a giant bird, relentlessly attacks her. The men then throw Sedna overboard to save themselves. Clasping the side of the boat, they chop on their fingers to get rid of it, and these digits break off and become seals, sea lions, and ocean whales. Sedna then sinks to the bottom of the sea, where it rests in turmoil and causes storms and environmental damage. Only the Innuit shaman, who can leave his body to visit them in the depths of the ocean, can appease this. She is only reassured when she brushes her long hair. Now we can begin to answer the question of which astrology sign it seems to match.
The name Sedna comes from the Innuit mythology and is closely linked to the sea, marine mammals and the shamanic depths of transformation and betrayal. At first glance, this seems to fit several astrological signs, especially the scorpion. If you've seen the film "Whale Rider", you can also see the close connection with the Sedna myth in this story. One thing this powerfully feminine archetype does for the planetary weights of the zodiac is that it (finally) is beginning to bring the male-female polarity among the planets to an equal level (it has been dominated by male archetypes so far). Eventually, while astrologers will no doubt be hotly debating which astrology sign Sedna belongs to (Virgo, Libra, Taurus, and Gemini are all candidates), ephemeris data will be collected and available, and you'll hear more over time. A good argument can be made that Sedna belongs to the astrological sign of the virgin, the virgin hunter. There is also a connection to Vigo in the archetype of the virgin, which contains the myth of Persephone, who mourned Demeter when Hades, the god of the underworld, was kidnapped as her mother.
To find the right astrology sign for Sedna, we need to watch what is happening in our world. At its deepest level, the Sedna archetype appears to be very strongly linked to the idea of personal freedom, choices, and consequences, especially overwhelming or related to natural disasters. These have increased since Senda's discovery, with hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in the Indian Ocean. As the most outspoken advocate of global environmental responsibility, Al Gore has become a public figurehead for this issue. And as Sedna is approaching its Natal Venus (values), it has made an important statement about our collective need to change our global values and priorities and make green the number one priority. This alone is a strong argument for Senda, which belongs to the astrological sign of the Virgin, and seems to fit exactly into the overall topic of Senda. The good news about a new planet is that with each new discovery, a level of consciousness on a global level is continually awakened. With Senda's discovery, the greening of our mass consciousness seems to be increasing. And finally, astrologers will (perhaps) agree on an astrological sign to which Senda is said to belong.
