Emergence of the Lion

The archetype of the Lion has long been associated with the constellation of Leo in the Zodiac.  Throughout history, the lion has been correlated with the solar principle.  In the glyph above, it represents the beginning of spring as the constellations of Taurus, the bull is being slayed by the lion, in which the Sun emblematic of the planting season is conjunct Taurus in April/May (Persepolis, 500 BCE).  The Lion as an archetype is also symbolic of the ego, the ruler, and as the 5th sign of the zodiac, it is expression of existential wishes and desires. In Bruno Huber's developmental astrological  psychology, the movement of the AGE Point (AP) through the twelve astrological  signs represents psychological tasks as a person interacts with the environment.  The AP takes six years to traverse one house which is symbolic of the field of activity associated with the traditional astrological houses. The [...]

Confessions of a dreamer

Dream: On April 4, 2021 I had a dream: I asked two ladies for written feedback on my work which I felt I deserved. Some unseen authority figure told them they had to write my feedback. One of these female figures wrote on paper some words that were in cursive, in bullet format. The other one gave a written text that looked like it was borrowed from some internet site. When I reviewed it more closely, I was disappointed that the feedback appeared hasty and not really that helpful. Plus it was forced and not coming from their spontaneous appraisal of my work. Place: In a classroom type environment People/objects: papers, 2 women who were esteemed, one authority figure- a man who is unseen Turning point: Reversal of feeling from the request I made; wanted it to be feedback that was positive and it ended being cursory and rather flat [...]

Election 2020 Trump on Display

This Astrological Psychology post uses the Huber method to give a perspective on Donald J. Trump’s re-election prospects based on his Natal horoscope, Transits, Age Point (AP) Progression aspects to Pluto in his horoscope, and the Sabian symbol for 12 Degrees of Virgo which is the AP degree on November 3, 2020, the day of the USA election. Trump’s Natal Chart (Figure 1. below- I am focusing on Pluto in Trump’s 12th house, the house of Isolation, You-loss, the house of the unworldly man[i] which in his natal chart is unaspected.  In Donald J. Trumps’ horoscope, Pluto is unaspected and lies outside the Megaphone, a 4 sided aspect figure characteristic of his unconscious motivation.  That means that Plutonian energies are divorced from the energies aspect planets in his horoscope. Pluto draws energies from the environment when unaspected.  As a psychotherapist, I recognize Plutonian energies as mafia- like power grabs that [...]

Reaching for inner truth- on the edge of gender

There are variables that influence the degree of gender expression in humans. Intrauterine high levels of testosterone in female fetuses can make  tomboys out of biological females and  genetic mutations of chromosomes called Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome create both male/female non-functional genitalia in one person.  Of course no one has a monopoly on truth and there are many approaches.  There are child rearing practices that influence gender identity.  My focus here is on how the psyche produces contra-sexual identities through psychological identifications and unconscious mechanisms called autonomous complexes based on Animus/Anima archetypes and the how the Self orchestrates the whole process. We approach Truth as an ideal ; both inner and outer truths preoccupy our goals and desires.  Perception of what images we are motivated by, what emotions stir us and what thoughts ultimately come to consciousness requires reflection and an inner journey.  Lets go on an inner journey now into [...]

How Astrology Works: From Ancient Times to Now

In ancient times the planetary system of known and discovered planets included Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn only.    Scientist priests observed the aspects of the planets in the course of the planting and harvesting year.  In Iran at Persepolis 500 B.C.E. accounts of these Magi describe the time to plant (Na Ruz) and when to harvest crops. Astrology was used as a biological time clock in which transits of the Sun  in the constellation of Taurus in aspect to Leo were used to determine these seasonal rituals.(1) In 320 B.C.E. Aristotle stated that "the planets effect people on an individual level intellectually.  They neither determine or compel."  The astrologers at that time used horoscopes for nations and rulers of nations to determine when is the best time for a particular event marriage, war and peace or a grand opening.  This was called Electional Astrology.(2) The three wise men [...]

Outline for achieving psychosynthesis during COVID-19 Part 1

Personal bias:  I am a 71 year old person who has been doing psychotherapy for 40 years and astrological analysis and counseling for the same amount of time.   I have been dis-identifying from my former occupational identity (semi-retired), not counting on my strength from my physical body, and facing losses of relatives and friends through natural deaths.  So when I explain mental health solutions, it is from the standpoint of a partial withdrawal from outer world engagements that enables me to eventually strive for spiritual goals.   I realize for younger persons, they may not see my solutions the same way. For them psychosynthesis of basic needs is the order of the day.  One of the advantages I have, is that I can see the illusions so clearly of the ego-attachments that prevent those from finding the light. A. Development of psychic maturity  1. Mental health problems are caused, in part,  [...]

Explained: Dreams of trans-personal illumination from superconsciousness

Dear reader:  I want to give you some background on Donald J. Trump and my feelings toward this President to give you a context for the following dream.  It is a fact that he is a business man  and has made some good business ideas like promoting that the US Postal Service (USPS) charge Amazon.com  more for shipping to help with USPS deficit problem.  He has also , it can be said , put the US on a financial footing in regards to one thing: our Nation's self-interest in our manufacturing base (although some would argue this point) through protectionist policies especially against China.  But as an executive who is qualified to deal with global issues of health care, environmental global warming, and international negotiations he is abysmally a failure in my view. ‪I believe that no matter what the Trump administration does to quell the nation through manipulative business [...]
