The third major planetary discovery

in the early 21st Century
The goddess Sedna

The November 14, 2003, discovery of Sedna marks an acceleration in our knowledge of the outer planet makup of the solar system. At approximately 1,000 miles (about 1,600 km) in diameter Sedna for now is the largest planetary body to be found in the Solar System since Pluto was discovered in 1930, pushing the recently-discovered Quaoar out of that spot.

Located in a highly elliptical 10,500-year orbit so far away that the Sun looks smaller than the head of pin, Sedna is the most distant solar system object ever discovered, at least so far, three time further away from the Sun than Pluto is.

For astrologers this signifies yet another distant transpersonal planet to join with Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Quaoar, and Orcus. Our whole way of looking astrology is undergoing a fundamental shift, and will reshape the way we think about ourselves, our spiritual evolution, and our place in The Universe.

The mythology of Sedna is a bit of a shocker, and would have to get an "R" rating if it were ever to be made into a film. Sedna is a major figure in Inuit mythology, the goddess of the ocean, but she came from as dysfunctional a family as you would never want to be a member of. Bestiality (with a dog and a bird), murder and filicide are all part of the story. (And you thought your relatives were a gross out.) Click here to learn more. Astrological meaning.   In mythology Sedna is the Goddess of the Victim, so the astrological interpretation of Sedna has a clear starting spot, betrayal and victimization. However, far more is involved than just that. Click here to learn more.
The astronomy of Sedna is interesting all by itself, and the scientific observations expand our knowledge of the solar system and the physical boundries of the solar system itself by some considerable amount.

Four versions are available currently, a 10-day ephemeris covering 1900 - 2036, a daily ephemeris from 1800 to 2103, and two longer ephemerides covering 602 CE to 2103 CE.

The New Planet Forum. This started out as a forum about Quaoar, but with new planets such as Sedna also being discovered in the outer reaches of the solar system, the forum's mandate has been expanded. All the old Quaoar posts are still here, and the forum has been renamed. This is a moderated bulletin board forum where you can post your thoughts, views, observations, and opinions, etc, about Quaoar, Sedna, and the other newly discovered outer planetary bodies. Most importantly, please post your experiences with these new planets. It's only with these public exchanges that we'll get a handle on what the new planets really mean.
