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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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: [...]

Practical Steps in Dream Analysis

Introduction: Dreams are triggered by days events in the previous days of the dream or coming days in your current life.  But the implications are that dream dramas innervate psychic energies that are constellated around psychological complexes in the Personal Unconscious. Complexes contain polar opposites of feeling values.  Few examples: Submissive vs. Dominant; Expressive vs. Suppressed; Superior vs. Inferior; Courageous vs. Fearful; Protective vs. Risk taking.  One of these sets of opposites triggers the affect/emotion of the dream. On awakening write in a daily log/journal [...]

The Heart of the Huber Method: the central core

"The true essence of the human being is directed by the circle in the middle of the horoscope.  This is where we look for the potential of man." (Huber,Bruno and Louise, p. 21. The Astrological Houses).  When an individual is born according to this theory, this circle begins to beam energies radiating in all directions which first meet the aspect lines of the overall aspect picture and then forms angular aspects to the planets that connect with the core.   See below my chart which has red [...]

Psychotherapy and Addiction

In this age of psychotherapeutic accountability, we therapists are forever obsessed with therapeutic outcomes.  And for addiction problems, the life or death outcomes become especially poignant because if efforts fail to stop a patient’s harmful use of substances- lives could be on the line.  And it is in this effort that I address resistance, transference and countertransference issues even though many in my field see these as useless anachronisms of a bygone psychoanalytic era no longer germane. But it is to this literature and interventions [...]

The correlation between dreams and Age Point Progression at critical life moments

Age Point Progression Astrological psychology identifies timing of predictable psychological crises in life.  These events correspond with an ‘Age Point’ as it travels through the 12 houses of the horoscope (Age Point Progression) at the rate of 6 years per house. It takes 72 years for the Age Point to go full cycle. Figure 1 Life Clock There are times, determined by the placement of the Age Point, when it may be appropriate to charge ahead and times when it may be better to look [...]

The waning of ego-centered models of consciousness; the waxing of the reflective, introspective models of mental health

For centuries Western societies have framed the cultural definition of mental health. The universal acceptance of English as the language of science has created the psychological norms as to what constitutes healthy individual adaptation. Further, the ability of United States and Western Europe to dominate, with English spoken as the key to business institutions, has enabled us westerners to dominate the economic zeitgeist or ‘spirit of the times’. This has amounted to a monopoly  on universities'  curriculum, on collective banking and global markets 1 with [...]
