About the event
C. G. Jung broke free of limiting modern assumptions to recognize that psyche was not confined to the human, that it permeated all of nature, indeed the cosmos itself. He also recognized the extraordinary value of astrology in shining an unexpected light on the archetypal dynamics of human life in synchronistic correspondence with planetary movements. The evidence of consistent correlations between planetary alignments and world events, as seen through the lens of archetypal astrology, can provide us with a much needed context for our wildly dramatic time. What is the current planetary situation, what gods are now in motion, and what are the historical precedents? How might our contemporary culture be transformed by the recognition that an intimate bond exists between the deep psyche and the cosmos? Join Richard Tarnas for a "state of the world report" on the archetypal astrological context of our national and global moment.
