Quaoar in Planet Wiki

Research Notes

QUAOAR, discovered in 2002, is a Cubewano and at the time of its discovery was the largest known world beyond Pluto. It holds catalog number 50,000 and is a billion miles further from the Sun than Pluto right now, orbiting the Sun once in 288 years.

Named for a Native American creation deity of the Tongva people from what is now southern California, we have a god who sings and dances the other gods and goddesses into existence.

Quaoar’s placement in a natal chart gives an intimate portrait of the dance of the family’s emotional process and its impact on us. Quaoar speaks to the rhythms and choreography into which we were born, as these manifest within the family pattern going back generations.

The interesting thing about one's family of origin is that we forget that the pattern of the family existed long before we got there. Quaoar points to how we dance to the music of our own creation more or less unconsciously. Most of the problems that we have associated with our families involve not perceiving our existence as part of a family pattern consciously. As well, when we have an unconscious relationship with our origins, our gifts will tend to be below awareness as well, masked over by various forms of song and dance that tend to take over the environment.

Quaoar suggests that we develop a conscious relationship with our personal creation mythology. Everyone has a story of where they came from, that is besides a mother and a father. Where Quaoar is prominent in a chart, or strongly aspected, it will be helpful to ask the client about where they think they come from. We have many different kinds of creation myths in our culture. They range from the old standbys, evolution and creation; to myths of origin from various star systems.

A person's personal creation myth will tell you a lot about them.
