The Astrology of Awakening II: Renewal of Hope

A Free 4-Day Online Astrology Summit

April 15 – 18, 2021

I am deeply honored to be offering my first ever keynote presentation at a conference, The Astrology of Awakening II: Renewal of Hope. This online astrology summit is a celebration of women astrologers who are bringing forward new perspectives of hope by drawing on the ancient wisdom of the astrological tradition.

My keynote presentation will take place on Thursday, April 15 at 11:00–12:30 pm Pacific time. The presentation is titled “Awakening to Responsibility” and will focus on the current Saturn-Uranus square alignment that is illuminating the skies through 2023:

At the U.S. Inauguration, Senator Amy Klobuchar stated that the January 6 insurrection “awakened us to our responsibility as Americans.” This statement reflects the archetypal principles of our current Saturn-Uranus square, in alignment from 2020 through 2023. Saturn is the principle of responsibility, commitment, discipline and order, but also of restriction, imprisonment, and authority; Uranus symbolizes freedom, rebellion, and liberation, as well as awakening and revelation. History demonstrates that these two contradictory archetypal principles create a zeitgeist in which sudden and unexpected crises can initiate the breakdown of traditional or oppressive structures, with the potential to bring revolutionary change into concrete structural form.

About the Practical Jung Series
Practical Jung is a regular series spearheaded by Aiden Moore within the 52 Living Ideas community. We meet for two hours every other Sun at 2:30 Eastern time to explore how we can practically apply the wisdom of Carl Jung to our everyday lives. Jung’s ideas are often cloaked in abstract language that is hard to digest. Given that fact, I wanted to create a conversation and community around Jungian psychology that is for the rest of us! A conversation that works to demystifying some of his ideas and make them applicable to our daily living—regardless of our previous experience with Jungian psychology.

Each session will include an interview with an expert in the field of Jungian psychology and the conversation will revolve around a specific topic (like romantic relationships, anxiety, projection, shadow, etc.). These sessions are for people of all levels – newly curious about Jung to established Jungian analysts – so whatever your previous experience in the field you are sure to walk away with something practical to apply to your own life!”

Format
1) Interview
2) Q&A
3) Break-out room discussion
4) Takeaways

Workshop Description
Astrology has been maligned in recent centuries as an unverifiable pseudoscience, a paragon of superstition. Yet astrology once held an honored position in high culture, a role that anyone initiated into the astrological tradition is aware should be reinstated. A way to reestablish astrology’s credibility to a wider audience is for astrologers to develop rigorous methods of research, in order to systematically approach the study of astrological correlations. This workshop will explore techniques and methods for approaching such research, laying forth some foundational structures that can help deepen one’s astrological practice and study, and present convincing cases for astrological validity.

Jung’s Relationship to Astrology

This evening, Friday, October 23 at 7:00–9:00 pm Pacific time, I will be offering a presentation for the Comox Valley C. G. Jung Society on “Jung’s Relationship to Astrology.” The event is online and open to the public. If you are interested in joining, you can register in advance for the event.

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.
