Sedna - "re-emerging of the exiled"

Astrology:

Sedna is a "feminine" energy and talks about the deep hidden themes that want to re-emerge into awareness on a global and individual scale - also about where we "betray" ourselves and our truth. She shows us, what "main themes" should be addressed and integrated / worked on....

Keywords: the re-emerging and use of the feminine principle in equality - the "limitless possibilities" that want to emerge into conscious awareness and ultimately manifestation....

 

It's an "adventure" into the "unknown". 

When I think of her, the "neverending story" with the "nothing" that eats the existing world comes to mind - solution: "create" by the use of phantasy, the imaginative creative power within... 

Or could we maybe see her, as the "galactic connection / family" or the "other side of the veil".... whatever wording we like to use, it's "extraordinary" compared to what we used to know as "normal".... 

She's involved in the forming of the "overtones" of bigger cycles I have talked about before - her orbital period is about 11'400 years.

Discovery-chart:

Sedna was discovered on 14th of November 2003 by Mike Brown, Chad Trujillo and David Rabinowitz at Paloma Observatory at 22 Aries 55' near the lunar Northnode of that time and solar opposition.

Heliocentric she was at 22 Aries 57' between the head of Cetus and the first stars of the constellation Taurus (south of the ecliptic) in conjunction with the Earth/Moon system and in a Grand Trine with Makemake in Leo and Chiron/Venus in Sagittarius. Beside that, she was approaching her most southern point - therefore a balsamic phase of her orbit (in reference to the ecliptic / us), before a "new birth"...

Mythology:

Sedna is the "hero" of a tragic Inuit story. She didn't want to live her life as dictated by the current society (marriage, children etc.) but was forced by her father into marriage. Finally her father comes for her rescue but when things became rough, he did sacrifice Sedna by pushing her off a boat into the deep sea. She drowns , defeated by the cold sea of betrayal. She adapts to her new surrounding and becomes the Watcher of the creatures of the sea - she's often drawn as a Mermaid. 

"Oceanic" energy - maybe some deeper connection with Neptune here...

Some Astronomy: 

Sedna has an exceptionally long and elongated orbit, taking approximately 11,400 years to complete.  Its orbit is extremely eccentric, with an aphelion estimated at 937 AU and a perihelion at about 76 AU. These facts have led to much speculation about its origin. The Minor Planet Center currently places Sedna in the scattered disc, a group of objects sent into highly elongated orbits by the gravitational influence of Neptune. This classification has been contested because its perihelion is too large for it to have been scattered by a known planet, leading some astronomers to informally refer to it as the first known member of the inner Oort cloud. Others speculate that it might have been tugged into its current orbit by a passing star.
