Hello Judith, Thank you for the welcome and the reference to Grey Crawford! Astrology is one of many interests of mine, but I would not consider myself an astrologer (yet). I still have much to learn. Depth Psychology Alliance seems like the perfect place for that, and I look forward to interacting with everyone here. Cheers, Chris
Hi Judith-I am glad you are still in conversations with Hestia. I cannot recall if I responded, but yes that was me as Hestia on this last Halloween. The photo. Hestia was a large part of the Active Dreaming group that I belong to this last Wednesday. I have many thoughts surrounding her, Mercury and the hearth still merging into words from thought form connections if that makes sense, hehe. Blessings!
Good morning, Judith. Thanks for the warm hearth to the group :)
And now I see your "Gray" comment in context—it stood alone outside of your article, so I played a funny. Yesterday continued in its playful spontaneity...
And I don't know Dvora, no, or much of the astrology scene here in Israel. I have a friend who studies kabbalistic astrology where they use the Hebrew calender, so it's quite different. I know the rabbis embrace the study but they warn laypeople to steer clear. I'd be interested to discuss it with her. I'll look her up. Thanks.
Hi Judith - thanks for being a friend in DPA for you have expertise I have minimal knowledge in, however, last week when I was watching The Nature of Things and it showed how 3 year old Artic Polar Bears swim across the ocean by reading the stars and I thought of you. Astononomy artic polar bears brought a smile to my face and laughter for my soul which I simply wanted to share with you. They stated that the learning, brain mapping of these ancient astrological ways of knowing is imprinted, layed down the first two years of the bears life - and then lauched to star gaze to find their way all on their own. Amazing stuff. I am glad you are out-there. Regards Linda
Ok i just focused my mind...The answer is that for the likes of Hillman, in their imaginal epistemology, the external world, when perceived takes its form from fantasy not vice versa. Hence the external worlds origins are the psyche or souls archetypal base.
moreover I view Hillman as wanting to pathologize but at the same time he doesnt believe that it is the outside world that causes it. That for Hillman is the error that most people make. For hillman it is the soul that is pathologizing and wants to pathologize. Always going on about the outer world is the error... thats my reading of Hillman. So he does make the outer world go away... at least he thinks he does.... Im not so sure.
Hey Judith... Hillman goes further and further into the unconscious and terms it that way, not me. I was just wondering what someone who sympathises with his view would think about this. Hillman deliteralizes the outer world. Your response strikes me as being not much of a Hillman fan on this.
Thanks Judie for the welcome and for guiding this group. I'll be looking forward to the discussions and will jump in when appropriate. Yes, when I get to LA on my infrequent but not totally out of the question visits, I'll let you know. Cathy
Judie, No problem at all! I've been involved in a pet crisis since that time. I'm not on site much at this time. I have to limit my computer time every now and then until I get a new desk. This one is too high and gives me neck issues! No explanation required!
Loved your James Hillman dream. I did not read through all the posts. What do you feel was the message of that dream? My immediate impression was through all the chaos you will emerge unscathed. Although Hillman loves to make trips to the Underworld...
Hi Judith. Welcome to the Alliance. It's great to have your gift of astrology here in the community.
