Astropsychology and Archetypal Analysis

Imagine combining a Ph.D in psychology, a scholarly understanding of archetypes, twenty years experience in counseling and thirty years of study in the 4,000 year old tradition of astrology. What you have is a practitioner well-versed in a discipline now called Astropsychology or Archetypal Astrology.

Astropsychology is the result of the cross-fertilization of astrology with Jungian, Humanistic and Transpersonal psychology. The horoscope is analyzed through the archetypes within astrology to gain psychological insight into an individual's psyche. The Hermitic maxims "As above, so below. As below, so above" and "As within, so without" explain the symmetry between the individual as a microcosm and the celestial environment as the microcosm. We are all imprinted with the celestial energies at play in the universe when we are born. Carl Jung said, "We are born at a given moment in a given place and like vintage years of wine we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything else." And then each moment we are uniquely being affected by the ever-changing interplay of archetypal energy at play in the cosmos.
