Coronation: Seeking Symbolic Meaning in a Time of Uncertainty

This Saturday, April 11 at 11:00 am Pacific time, I will be participating in a dialogue with David Pressault and Gary S. Bobroff on the theme of Coronation: Seeking Symbolic Meaning in a Time of Uncertainty.

As we find ourselves in the midst of a global pandemic, we can look at the larger cosmological and archetypal patterns as well as our dreams to find meaning. What archetypal energies are seeking expression now? What are our dreams saying? What is changing within us?

At this time, the outer planets Saturn and Pluto are in alignment with each other, a transit that began in 2018, reached exactitude on January 12, 2020, and will continue to be in orb through 2021. Historically, Saturn-Pluto alignments have correlated with time periods of major crisis, conflict, division, challenge, and the moral call to face the shadow within oneself and in the collective, whether that is in times of war, economic collapse, or viral epidemics.

In this online panel Gary, David, and I will explore dreams, archetypes and the history of Saturn-Pluto world transits, as a means to seek meaning in our current challenges. We’ll offer perspectives on how best to participate in the archetypal dynamics as they continue to unfold.

InnerVerse Podcast

Chance Garton, the wonderful host of the InnerVerse Podcast, kindly invited me to participate in a truly rich and deep conversation on The Lord of the Rings. We began by discussing my book Journal to the Imaginal Realm, and soon expanded into innumerable Tolkienian subjects, delving into the First Age of Arda, the cosmogonic music of the Ainulindalë, Tolkien’s notion of sub-creation and how it relates to Coleridge’s ideas of the Primary and Secondary Imagination, and many other such enticing subjects.

The first hour of our conversation is available publicly, and can be accessed through the InnerVerse website or listened to directly below. In the first hour, we discussed the source of the human imagination, the Atlantis myth as told in Middle-earth, the parallels between the Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien, and the means by which great stories are able to immerse us in an enchanted otherworld.

The second hour is available to Patreon supporters of InnerVerse, and I must say it is well worth subscribing to hear the places our conversation took us (as well as to have access to all the other wonderful episodes in the InnerVerse archive!) In the second hour, Chance and I explored Tolkien’s use of Venusian symbolism, the archetype of the syzygy of Solar and Lunar, Tolkien’s critique of industrialization, the enigmatic character of Tom Bombadil, as well as wading into the difference between polarity and binary, Solar feminine and Lunar masculine, and of course the essential topic of ecological crisis and our relationship to the Earth.

To listen to the first hour: Journey to the Imaginal Realm: Archetypes in The Lord of the Rings

To listen to the second hour: InnerVerse on Patreon

As Chance said: “Get ready for an unexpected journey!” 

 

Cosmic Keys Podcast

Cosmic KeysI recently had a wonderful and engaging conversation with Scarlet and Dan of the Cosmic Keys Podcast, in which we discussed spirituality and astrology, the metaphysics of archetypal dynamics, ecology and climate change, and of course, the connections between the Red Books of C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien. We also discussed my upcoming course Songs of the Spheres, which begins February 17 (for those still interested in registering!) The episode begins with Scarlet and Dan giving a tarot and astrology forecast for the week of January 27–February 2, 2020.

The episode can be listened to through the Cosmic Keys website, or directly below.
