Jung, Dreams, Astrology: As Above So Below, As Within So Without with Cathy Pagano
Thursday, March 15, 2018, 7:00 PM
C.G. Jung’s exploration of the archetypal patterns of life led him to study astrology as a system of archetypal energies at work in the world. “The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes. In this vision astrology and alchemy, the two classical functionaries of the psychology of the collective unconscious, join hands.” ~ Carl G. Jung
Jung felt that it was important to combine the two ‘arts:’ Astrology, which lays out the fundamental blueprint or pattern of a person’s life, and Depth Psychology and Dream Work, which fills in the individual content of that blueprint. Astrology can pinpoint the issues to be faced, while Dream Work gives us access to how we are relating to those issues – our individual response to the astrological patterns of our life.
In this lecture, we’ll look at some dreams and how they are reflected by transits in our astrology charts.If you have what we call a ‘big’ dream – full of archetypal images – do up a chart (natal, progressions and transits) for that day and bring it in and we’ll discuss how they relate if we have time.
