Sedna Consciousness With Alan Clay. When a new Solar System body is discovered, clues to the astrological meaning can be found by looking at a range of factors, but primarily come from studying the planet in a large number of charts to find common themes. Sedna was discovered in 2003 and it has a huge highly-elliptical orbit of 11,406 Earth years and lies out past all the other planets, even at its closest point. We'll discover the evolutionary power of the 'candidate dwarf planet' and learn of the profound implications for society in the coming years as Sedna approaches her closest point to Earth later this century in the 2070s. Location: Cheltenham. Time: 7:30. More information: www.aquariussevern.com
