Re: Sedna Venus Vesta cycle
The Lunar Planer is always a masterpiece, yet sometimes I have difficulty
with the mythology and concepts. This is especially true this month
( Jan 2009 ) when you are discussing Sedna and the feminine principle.
I understand the basic idea of what you are saying, but then it gets
confusing. When you say 'feminine principle,' I think of actual women.
I don't think of things like yin, receptive, demure, hidden, subtle...
In the Far East, would they say 'yin' or maybe use a metaphor?
Is there a western expression that is similar to what yin means?
The discussion seems to lean toward the plight of women. But the
Sedna myth sounds like it has to do with the experience of the long
seasons in the Arctic and the sorrow or sense of defeat that can go
with life in a harsh environment. It would be interesting to see if a
geographic view would bring something into the meaning of the myth.

Women in the western world do not seem to be oppressed. I mean
that in an honest and sincere way. Women are never without resources.
If they can't afford clothes off the rack, they'll sew their own. There
are far more women working in corporations than men. They always
have money for cosmetics. They plan and save for what they may
want. There are many examples of women being resourceful.
The sense of oppression comes in when a person lives in a tribal society
or in one with rigid standards. If women do not go along with anything
they don't like, they can still experience freedom within themselves.
The women's movement used the word oppression when they meant
that they were displeased with the way of living that people had come
to accept. There is a good percentage of women who didn't buy into
the women's movement. They had a wider perspective and a more
resourceful attitude, and they kept quiet about it.
Spiteful withdrawal can occur with boys as well as with girls. It depends
The statement about making sexual healing the priority is brilliant.
That may be the energy system that gets confounded more than the
others. You may have noticed that there can be discord when needs
are not acknowledged or when facets of a person are undeveloped, for
example. There is more to it than just that. Though discord between
the sexes may be the norm, it may not be so true with people who are
more enlightened or well-travelled. An abusive nature can be seen in
women just as much as with men. It's just a different form of abuse.

When people talk about gender differences, relationship troubles, even
trouble just within a person, it looks like it might finally come down to
development. Was the early environment adequate for this person?
Were wild expectations refined with good sense? Did a person learn
a balanced perspective about living?
