Eek, this could be my fault. I knew I was taking a gamble by mentioning the re-assignments. Either way, I felt like I would confuse people. So I just metaphorically flipped a coin.
To be clear, when I mentioned “re-assignments” I was referring to Blake’s neat system of matching up astrological zodiac SIGNS to Myers-Briggs cognitive functions. This was previously done by linking the element (fire/earth/air/water) and modality (fixed/cardinal/mutable) of each sign to the basic Jungian function (intuition/sensation/thinking/feeling) and orientation (introverted/extraverted/ambiverse) of each function, respectively. This was the simple but elegant theory behind the assignment of zodiac SIGNS to MB cognitive functions in v1.0.
FYI, the re-assignments do NOT refer to the correspondences between planets/astrological houses and MB function positions - these associations still apply as of now. The same goes for MB function positions and definitions - which again, remain relatively unchanged as of today.
The only change that has occurred is the assignment of zodiac signs to MB cognitive functions!
And the new assignments/v2.0 have NOT been published yet!!
So everything I wrote to @GLASS in those three posts refers to the old way (v.1.0) of linking zodiac signs to MB cognitive functions. I only mentioned a v2.0 coming out, in case it would cause confusion not to make a forewarning before I release the notes.
Normative ids and deep ids have been in the SM MB “function stack” since the beginning, and still apply as of now. And the normative id still corresponds to the implied astrological moon, while the deep id still corresponds to an implied 12th house. However, the corresponding implied planet for the deep id is still not clear at this point (either Saturn or Pluto).
And no, the implied moon for the normative id of an MB type is not the same as the moon subtype. Anyone can have any of the 16 MB archetypes as his/her moon subtype, but the implied moon and 12th house for the normative and deep id, respectively, for a given sun MB type will always be the same.
I really wish I could be clearer, but this is as much time allows me these days!
Now I’m pretty motivated to release the notes at my soonest convenience.
I will just give a brief preview clarifying that perhaps the v1.0 and v2.0 zodiac sign-to-MB-function assignments should be re-titled as the intuition-based and sensation-based zodiac sign-to-MB-function assignments, respectively. Blake briefly hinted at it in his second post in this comment in the main article here, introducing two types of zodiac: Ni-based (causal-plane/theoretical/ideal) and Se-based (earthly/actual).
I suppose it will all be clear when I plainly write down the assignments, comparing the v1.0 (or theoretical/intuition-based) to v2.0 (actual/sensation-based) zodiac-signs-to-MB-functions/types conversions. I will attempt to spell it out clearly for each version.
I’m sorry if I confused you all! It must be the INTP Mercury subtype and work environment influences on me.
Do ask questions for clarifications, but I may have to hold off on answering some of them until I release those damn assignments!
