New Book: "Images of Soul: Reimagining Astrology"

My co-author, Judith Harte, and I are delighted to announce the publication of our new book "Images of Soul: Reimagining Astrology." It's published under the imprint of Iris & Acorn Press. The book is now available on Amazon.

"Images of Soul" grew out of a friendship and collegial conversation that has spanned three decades, As the book evolved we sought to create a provocative fusion of astrological symbolism, Depth Psychotherapy, and Imaginal Psychology. Our discourse interfaces with the “acorn theory” of James Hillman who, as most of you know, conjectured that each life has its own soul's code, its own calling. We see this as resonant with a natural, yet sophisticated astrology wherein the horoscope's trajectory is viewed as a pathway to one's personal archetypal ground. We suggest that each of us can evolve in the direction of our own life's calling by viewing the horoscope as analogous to an acorn, inside of which is our unique soul's code with a mysterious timepiece all its own. As licensed psychotherapists who are actively engaged in the arts, we often use images, imaginal dialogue, and evolutionary astrological methods to deepen our clients’ psychotherapeutic processes.

Hi Hadley - by joining this group, I got to see, read this post about this book, co-authored by Judith.  I have been a member here [DPA] since September 2012 and this was the first group I joined.  I also joined the book club and the first "depth" book I read was in the taking of the course with "The Red Book."

I just finished reading the book and watching the DVD - "The Red Tent" by Anita Diamond.  I have placed this book right beside Carl Jung's "The Red Book" and...I have no words right now for what it is about these two "red" books that I am trying to find words for...must be more numinous stuff...  

What a rich community we belong to, so much refreshing goodness in here.  Glad you joined our group and I notice...our group, numinous stories are fairly silent...whispers...similar to the tent biblical women characters in Genesis.  The historical research...amazing...the imaginal content, the "between the lines" story of the named, silent women from "The Bible" into "The Red Tent."  I feel like I just attended a gala "girl" feast.

I shall add Judy's and your book to my expanding "Read Me" first hand reading, studying or using astrology - almost to personal...after is impossible to delve into everything that is out there...

I am noticing a theme...imaginal fiction filling in the between the lines - hidden stories/lives of women and children by women...seeped deep in heart + soul.  Peace + Love Linda

Just taking a look on Amazon :{D

I run a life transitions coaching practice in Nottingham, UK, and each and every time I've included astrology as part of the 'tool set' I apply when working with a client, the information in the birth chart (together with other charts, e.g. progressed) was central in freeing that person.

Thank you!

Thanks so much for your interest, Gray. We look forward to any thoughts you may have about our endeavor. I read your contributions regularly here and am so pleased to see such fine work coming from a younger astrologer.
