Neptune Part 2

New post on The Astrological Psychology Website The Astrological Neptunian Character 2 by Barry Post by John Grove This is the continuation of John Grove's explorations into his Neptune, following on from the previous post. A complex is an inner state of opposition between these two contrasting energies within the psyche; based on my personal psychological past of early attachments. The way a complex works in the outer world is that a bipolar behavior pattern is expressed. When one side of the complex is expressed at one time you [...]

Neptune the Mystic, Part 1

Part I The Astrological Neptunian character What is written here is an example of my life-long project to understand the effect and siren call of the planet Neptune in my natal horoscope.  The struggle I have had is nothing less than a battle with my own ego, first caused by the disillusionment that comes from recognizing the force of the Neptune energies in my chart and then going beyond the limitations of my own ego identifications to include a universe of possibilities that Neptune represents.  [...]

Couples counseling and subpersonalities

Of course the usual justifications existed and I could prepare my defense.  But Astrological psychology was not able to be brought out in the sun to be scrutinized [...]

Psychosynthesis Using Dreams and Astrological Psychology Life Clock

This post has two theoretical basics: Use of  the psychological model of Assagioli's Psychosynthesis and The Huber method of Astrology.  This approach is determined by why people visit astrologers in the first place..."one is a crisis situation of some kind and the other is due to awareness [...]

2017 Published book on Amazon

This newly published book has contents which correlate the Huber Age Point Progression in the life cycle with sensitive points in the horoscope. There are psychosocial tasks which must be accomplished based on Age Progression Point traveling around the horoscope beginning at birth and going till age 72. This book identifies these passages but also finds that interpreting the dreams at these times more likely leads to a better dream interpretation. In this way the context of dream interpretation with Age Point Aspects is a [...]

Dreams revealing unknown emotional content
