Editor’s Notes

Welcome to Conjunction Issue 67. We have a good selection of new articles in this issue.

Can we find evidence of introversion in the birth chart? Joyce Hopewell is inspired by her own Myers Briggs analysis and Susan Cain’s new book Quiet on the power of introverts, using the charts of Rosa Parks and Steve Wozniac as examples.

Ghislaine Adams and Andrei Andrada both reflect bravely on aspects of their own charts related to their lives, illustrating the power of astrological psychology in helping us to look at ourselves and our lives. Ghislaine considers the significance of her house chart and Andrei looks at her low point and stress planets.

This is followed by two pieces inspired by ‘arts’ in a much darker vein. John Grove speculates on parallels between Roman Polanski’s film Rosemary’s Baby and the life and death of Polanski’s wife Sharon Tate, her chart and dreams. Wanda Smit takes a look at the lives and charts of two artists obsessed by the concept of cruelty: Antonin Artaud and Jim Morrison.

We end on a much more positive note. In the early days of the English Huber School (which became APA) there were strong links with the UK Centre for Transpersonal Psychology. Sue Lewis recently came across a ‘lost’ interview with its co-founder Ian Gordon Brown from the early 1990s, with his reflections on transpersonal psychology.

Up to date news and features have appeared on the APA blog and @astpsy Twitter feed. In case you missed them, summaries of significant items are provided in the following.

Changing delivery of APA courses

The APA trustees have concluded that the present method of delivery of the APA Foundation and Diploma courses is not sustainable. We will therefore cease to offer enrolment on our tutored Diploma and Foundation courses as from the end of 2016, with the special exception that current Foundation Course students may enrol on the Diploma Course at a later date by special arrangement with their tutor. APA will continue to issue Diplomas/Certificates to those successfully completing their course by end of 2019.
