10.19.23 | Guest Speaker: Patricia Dunn-Fierstein, LCSW | Lecture: Astrological Reflections on Jung’s Natal Chart
“The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes.” C. G. Jung
“The human being, the solar system, the cosmos itself are intrinsically connected—internally and externally. Everything is breathing together. We are the cosmos in human form.” Richard Tarnas: Changing of the Gods
Scholarly astrological texts date back to 1800 BCE in ancient Babylon. Until the 1700’s, the study of astrology was considered a science, helping to drive our knowledge of astronomy. During the 1700’s astronomy grew in importance and astrology fell into the category of pseudoscience. Yet, Jung boldly saw the value of astrology in the early 1900’s and throughout his career, during a time when it was dismissed as the occult and not dignified in psychological circles. We can see Jung’s daring spirit and other significant aspects of his character and his life depicted in his natal chart and transits. In this lecture we will introduce astrology and examine Jung’s chart. We will explore astrology as a window into the human psyche, allowing the cosmos to inform us with clarity, compassion and a larger vision of our human journey here on earth.
