Forecasting Giants and Dodgers

Moderator’s note: I have received this unusual post from APA member Morris Bodnar. Its subject is not the development of the individual psyche, which is the normal context of astrological psychology, and was the focus of the researches of Bruno & Louise Huber.

What is a Cosmic Egg Timer?

The publisher HopeWell has just published the third edition of the book The Cosmic Egg Timer: Introducing Astrological Psychology.

I hear some of you say “what on earth is

Astrology, Relationships and Click Horoscopes

When looking at relationships between two people, a conventional chart comparison (synastry) will seek out aspects between a planet in a sign in one person’s chart, and a planet in a sign in the other person’s. For example, the Moon in Cancer my chart might be in a 120 degrees apart trine aspect relationship with

Bruce Chatwin’s Songline

A songline is a track that Australian Aborigines walk, singing their territories and their lives into creation, much like the Essenes danced their world into creation.

The Saturn impulse towards conservative reaction and repression

As we move into 2018-2019 we can see now the increase in anti-scientific bias on the part of the Trump administration evidenced in their recent censoring in the Center for Disease Control (CDC)of certain words like science- based, fetus, transgender, and diversity.   One can see where this is going. Science- based evolution is a theory

Frida Kahlo. Torn in Two.

The first thing that catches the eye in Mexican painter Frida Kahlo’s chart is the red band running through her core, much like the steel handrail that pierced her body in a bus accident at age 18. This injury would cause complications throughout her life. With Saturn – her physical ego – as her strongest

Post materialistic psychology

David Lorimer’s (and others’) reviews in Paradigm Explorer (new name for the magazine of the Scientific and Medical Network) are always worth reading. You get an impression of far more current books than you could ever read. I was particularly struck by David’s review of The Oxford Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality, edited by Lisa

Throughout her life she was clinically depressed, always aware of death. Understanding her psyche is an undertaking for a psychiatrist, which I am not. But perhaps Astrological Psychology could throw some

Roberto Assagioli

Wikipedia well describes the pedigree of Roberto Assagioli and his psychosynthesis. Psychosynthesis arose from the psychoanalytic tradition initiated by Freud, but was more akin to Jung’s revisionist approach, and indeed moved beyond it. “Psychosynthesis became the first approach born of psychoanalysis that also included the artistic, altruistic and heroic potentials of the human being.” Assagioli’s
