Eight Dwarf Planets As Higher Octaves

Alan Clay

Sunday 20 March 2022
2.00 pm - 4.00 pm AWST
online with ZOOM

When Uranus and Neptune were discovered one way of understanding them was as a higher octave of an inner planet, Mercury for Uranus and Venus for Neptune. A higher octave expresses the energy of an inner planet at a more spiritual level. This talk will present a framework of higher octaves to help understand the astrological meaning of eight of the new dwarf planets.

If planets are higher octaves, we would expect to see them working in chorus at key points of our lives. This talk will look at Makemake, Uranus and Mercury and at Alan Turing’s prediction 100 years ago that ‘ladies will take their computers for a walk in the park’. We’ll look at Haumea, Neptune, and Venus and at the generational renewal inherent in Martin Luther King’s ‘dream’ of human rights. We’ll explore Eris, Pluto and Mars and the start of the New Age movement with Alice Bailey’s Arcane School, which was established to ‘foster recognition of universal spiritual principles.’ And we’ll look at how Sedna, Ceres and the Moon play out in the launch of James Lovelock’s Gaia Hypothesis that we live in ‘a synergistic self-regulating, complex system’.

New Zealander Alan Clay has a background as a humanistic astrologer, inspired by the work of Dane Rudhyar. Over the years this has broadened into a study of the new dwarf planets. His book, 'Sedna Consciousness, the Soul’s Path of Destiny’ is the ultimate reference on the planet Sedna. He is the NCGR International Delegate for New Zealand. He recently founded the Dwarf Planet University, where he teaches online classes helping students understand the meaning of each of the dwarf planets in their personal chart.
