“Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.”Carl Jung, the father of both Analytical and Spiritual Psychology
I watched a movie last night on Netflix called A Dangerous Method that was about the relationship between Carl Jung, his mentor Sigmund Freud, and Sabina Spielrein, the woman both men analyzed who became Jung’s mistress, a doctor in her own right, and influenced both men and their analytic theories.
You see how much Jung struggled to stand up for his beliefs that your soul was not just here on this planet to work out complexes but to discover the meaning of your life.
Although Sabina comes to his clinic believed to be insane by her family, his belief in her transforms her and she goes on to study and assist him. Because psychoanalysis was in its infancy in Victorian Europe, both Sabina and Freud strongly discouraged Jung in his research of mystical traditions like alchemy, synchronicity, and astrology. They feared they would all be discredited. And in fact, Jung’s second mistress (also an analyst, Toni Wolff) also discouraged him because she felt it contradicted her Christian faith.
Given the pressures on Jung ( he did keep his study of astrology buried in his unpublished writings while he was alive) to conform to this newly budding field in repressed Zurich and Vienna, it made me wonder what in HIS soul gave him the courage to persevere in spite of the risks to his reputation? As an aside, I did some research, and he outlived his wife and both his mistresses which is remarkable given the common life span of men in the 1950’s. Further, Freud died of oral cancer. hmmm.
I realize this is an extrapolation, but perhaps it is that kind of courage and sense of purpose that influences the aging process. To speak out and follow what one believes even it flies in the face of society. Of course, it helps to have three women who all greatly assisted his work behind the scenes. But still, he had to maintain a singular voice given their dissent, like so many pioneers do.
So often people come to me seeking greater meaning in their lives that is often triggered by a crisis because they cannot give themselves permission to follow their soul’s deepest yearning. There is another way.
Dr. Joe Dispenza, a leading thought leader along with many other personal growth influencers have been commenting on the new influx of electromagnetic energy onto the planet since the Lion’s Gate opening on 8/8. I know that we are in a time that discovering what one’s true soul purpose is can come much more easily. I love working with people who are ready to step out of their 3 D story and into this new frontier we are building.
In anticipation for the catalytic change predicted in 2020, I am starting a new 6 month Zoom class in early January devoted to assisting you in activating your new soul purpose.I will share more on that in my next newsletter.
Astrology Tips for the Week:
Monday September 23 – Hit the ground running. Finally, we do not have a void moon on a Monday until 3:00 PM until 5:00 AM Tuesday. I would not advise major meetings or having procedures during that window.
Tuesday – The moon is well aspected in Leo. Complete major projects already under way. We are now in the moon’s shadow for five days. Farmers do not plant in the waning cycle.
Wednesday – our only Void moon day of the work week beginning at 7:30 AM for 23 hours. Make no major decisions today. Leave it to Thursday.
Thursday and Friday – the moon is well aspected in Virgo making a trine to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and then an extra kick to Mars in Virgo to end Friday.
Saturday – THE NEW MOON in Venus ruled Libra at 11:29 AM PDT. Make a wish for something that involves beauty and/or relationships but wait until the new moon is exact or after 11:29 AM PDT. The most potent time for the new moon to manifest your deepest desires is the first 24 hours of the new 4 week cycle. I suggest ritualizing it by lighting a candle and writing down your intention.
