“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 as 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.
