“In cases of difficult psychological diagnosis I usually get a horoscope in order to have a further point of view from an entirely different angle. I must say that I very often found that the astrological data elucidated certain points which I otherwise would have been unable to understand.” C. G. Jung (Letters I, p. 475).
C. G. Jung began his study of astrology while he was still working with Sigmund Freud. His initial interest in astrology seems to have been a study in the history of psychology. As he has said of the practice, “Its value is obvious enough to the psychologist, since astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity” (Jung, CW 15, par. 81). As he continued to explore astrology, however, he discovered that it was not only of historical, psychological, and symbolic importance, but that it was also of practical value. Like many who have explored astrology, Jung found that, however illogical and irrational it may appear to be, astrology does seem to work. His well-known theory of synchronicity was at least partially an attempt to explain why this might be so. At the same time, Jung understood astrology’s value as coming not so much from the stars, as from the deep archetypal layers of the collective unconscious. Join us for this eight week college level course to learn and understand more of what Jung had to say about the cultural and psychological importance of astrology and astrological symbols.
Each weekly meeting will include a presentation and explanation of some aspect of Jung’s work with and relationship to astrological ideas. A discussion and question/answer session will follow. Additionally, a wealth of resources for further study will be available to participants through our online learning platform. Those participants who successfully complete the assignments in the online learning platform will receive a certificate of completion which may be used as credit toward a future certification program. Don’t miss this opportunity to understand Jung’s use of astrological symbols and ideas and how he applied these ideas towards an understanding of human behavior and development. You do not need to have any understanding of astrology to benefit from this comprehensive introduction to C. G. Jung’s writings on astrology and astrological symbols.
Participants will take part in eight weekly classes, plus one free introductory class
Start time for each event is 1pm PST (4pm EST) 90 min
