In recent years, new scholarship has been emerging demonstrating the essential role the discipline of astrology played in the development and practice of C. G. Jung’s analytical psychology. In 1911, Jung wrote a letter to Freud in which he said that his nights were occupied with the study of astrology, to which Freud responded that Jung would be “accused of mysticism.” Jung kept his practice of astrology relatively concealed, but based upon evidence in his own writings, as well as statements he made late in his life, Jung was drawing on astrological wisdom regularly for both personal use and with his patients.

  1. Jung should even more widely known than he is. As he said, astrology is assured of recognition… but in its spiritual context. I sense we at the threshold of an age which will finally see this reach fruition. Great information.

  2. I so very much appreciate the correlation of the astrology and aspects of the moment to what Jung was working on at that time! While it seems a common-sense thing to do, I have never heard of such a thing before. You are doing ground-breaking work, Becca!
