Children’s conscious development, the nature of reality and dreaming.

Ego identity merged with Feeling for the Child: During the first 6 years of life, the development of the "I" comes into awareness for the child. This sphere covers the period of subconscious and preconscious existence of the child. It is a period of slow awakening of the "I" from ages 1-4 and is associated with psychomotor development. 1 A sense of belonging to a caregiver/mother builds on this gradual awareness of the "I". From 18 months onward bonding with the caregiver/mother shows evidence of fear of strangers as the child develops reciprocal smile-reactions in interactions with familiar family faces. The ego first develops from sensory-emotional growth as the child refines and integrates the five senses and builds these preferences to learn to recognize and express their feelings. 2 This primary narcissism is egocentric feeling which is a magical and ecstatic stage and is based on basic trust exclusively [...]

Individual interpretations using Astrological Psychology

1. What are ego planets? Ego planets in astrology are what the Huber Method of Astrological Psychology call drives that meet the basic needs of Human beings as identified in Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of Needs model. a.

In the middle of the pyramid; The need for emotional belonging and affiliation, contact with others who love and accept us based [...]

Psychosynthesis summary

Civilization in Transition

Civilization in Transition A new era is coming based on spiritual values (non material) and technology through logic applied in cyberspace, artificial intelligence and a centralized world order. What lies behind us and what lies ahead are two very different worlds with contrasting world views. If you identify with your location based on the element of Earth, you are limited to the geographic boundary of your nation state and topographical barriers such as seas, mountains, etc.. Identification with the Earth promotes patriotism and nationalism, idealization of home, protection of property, civil disobedience, gun culture, et. We are witnessing the element of Air as a dominant catalyst in the production of creative energy and a turning away from the Earth element. If you identify with your location based on the element of air, you are a citizen of the world. You do not belong to a specific country only but have [...]

Considerations in Astrological Psychology Consultation

When I do a consultation I emphasize the need for an accurate birth time because finer discriminations of the personality depends on the exact time of birth. Next I emphasize that the name Astrological Psychology has an emphasis on Psychology because we are assessing the personality based on finely tuned aspects, ego strengths and needs that promote or delay the integration of the personality. I would emphasize two components of analysis: 1. The aspect patterns linking planets together into linear, quadrangular or triangular shapes needs identified. (Huber, Bruno and Louise, Aspect Pattern Astrology, Hopewell publishing, Knutsford, UK, 2005 ). Are they linear mainly which indicates a creative and achievement oriented personality? Are they forming a triangular pattern indicative of mutability, adaptability and love of change? Are they quadrangular indicating the need for balance, harmony and stability? This addresses unconscious motivation of the individual depending on the preponderance of one shape [...]

Use of Astrology and Psychotherapy: Evidence

There is empirical evidence to support the use of astrology in psychological counseling; reports from empirical studies show evidence of statistically significant correlations between extraversion tendencies and planets in the “positive” signs of the zodiac, (i.e. Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius) source: .(Tarvainen, On Astrological Polarity in Extravert/Introvert Groups, Correlation, Vol 32, 1, 2018,p. 33). Using astrology to facilitate self-understanding and personal growth in my clients is a valuable tool. One study conducted in 2018 found that astrological birth charts could be used as a tool to help clients identify personal strengths and weaknesses and foster self-exploration. (“A Constructivist Investigation of Astrology as a Tool for Self-Discovery”, in New Age of Leadership; Martin, Cameron; University of San Diego, 5/17/2022). Additionally, I have used astrology in my practice to serve as a useful starting point for therapy sessions by providing insight into my clients personality traits, tendencies, and potential areas [...]

Reincarnation discovery through dreaming

The concept of reincarnation is difficult for some people to accept.  The idea is not new, in fact it is universal and an ancient concept.  Buddhists and Hindus believe in reincarnation and the transmigration of souls is based on karmic action in past lives and its influence over this incarnation of the soul. Research: Dr. Ian Stephenson, psychiatrist, had studied systematically reports of reincarnation in his work , (Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation. 1974) both in the West and in Eastern cultures. Stephenson mostly reported on case studies of children before the age of 7 who because of innocence and lack of life experience seem to be more in contact with attitudes and beliefs of their own past lives.  But there is evidence of past life memories occurring in the dreams of adults, the most common of which are nightmares of traumas that occurred in past lives.  Dreams and past [...]

The Horoscope and integration of the personality through psychosocial tasks

What follows is a description of theories used in my clinical social work practice and my consultant work for  These theories and their application are the bases of operations in astrology and psychology disciplines.  There are sections of practical experiments which can guide the beginner to the Huber method to discover how to actualize insights into this method of horoscope interpretation. Psychological Social Development: The first thing is to understand in the lifecycle is the work of Eric Erickson and Bruno and Louise Huber.  These theorists identified the developmental stages and critical psychological tasks starting at birth with the establishment of the ‘I’ to the moment of death.   An individual goes through psychological conflicts which need to be resolved for healthy growth to occur during his/her whole life long.  They include when a child is  developing the sense of "I"; entering in the school world as an elementary student; [...]
