Before marching on the stars of the Bushel. It is necessary for the adept to pass by the females deities who surround the Bushel-namely, those constellations which “shine with a light that does not enlighten,” “are bright without brilliance,” and “have a splendor without sparkle. “These deities are the “nine Yin” or the nine Empresses of the Great Yin.

The Great Yin is associated with the condition of ataraxia or wu-wei in which the forces of nature are collected and hidden. It is the northwest, place or condition which is devoid of heaven and which cannot be reached by the sun. It si, then, the point which is the highest germinal concentration of all force and space.

The Nine Yin represent black light-that is, a sacred darkness floating around the pole, which is the inverted image of the infernal darkness or a midnight sun corresponding to the noon sun culminating in the south. The light of the nine Yin is also associated with the “floating darkness” where “nothing on either the inside or outside can be seen.” This darkness is associated with the Purple radiation of the stars and, In the Huang-chi Yang –ching ching, precedes the appearance of the seven boys of Bushel. These dark stars are the hun and p’o souls  which revolve around the Bushel. And the Busel itself is caught up in network of the dark stars. What we know on earth happens in an inverse way among these stars-thus, souls in heaven exist on the outside rather than on the inside. The celestial order turns the earthly order upside down so that the yin stars are on the outside and the Yang stars are on the inside (usually yin corresponds to the inside). It is furthermore the case that dark yin illuminate the yang stars.

Stoicism often made use of the term, as they too sought mental tranquillity and saw ataraxia as highly valuable. In Stoicism, however, ataraxia is not an end to be pursued for its own sake, but is rather a natural consequence that occurs in a person who pursues virtue. A closely related state, attained by the ideal Stoic sage, was the absence of unhealthy passions, or apatheia.
