Induced collective American psychosis

A global event today in the face of multiple social, theological, humanitarian and political crises induces the feeling that rapid change is being imposed upon all nation states.  These changes are disrupting the traditional ways of living in the most general sense; a threat to our way of life is upon us! That the "Other" , the Stranger, the Foreigner, the Alien are all seemingly threatening the status quo and social order in all countries makes it easy to project blame on people who do [...]

Freud and Jung in dream analysis

The above figure identifies three structures of the Freud Psyche theory: Id , Ego and Superego. The Id is the most unconscious and represents instincts that operate and erupt into our conscious minds; the Ego is the reality tester, mediates the impulses from the Id and refers them to the conscience or moral compass in the personality that evaluates the consequences of acting on Id impulses. The function of Dreams. In psychoanalysis, Freud used dreams in the analysis of the transference in which he [...]

The spectrum of severe mental health disorders and astrological research- a beginning

A continuum of Mental Health Disorders: This article will explore the factors both environmental and genetic that lead to a sliding continuum of mental problems rather than discrete disorders.  The medical model has been imposed upon mental disorders which has rules for categories of separate disorders.  This dictates which medications  are used and which add to the stigma of mental illness by pathologizing the diagnoses.  The medications have difficult side effects which turn my clients to homeopathic treatments like cannabis, alcohol, and other remedies with [...]

Visitation dream of deceased person(s)

Dreams can be communication from entities beyond the phyiscal plane, i.e. deceased people.(Dreams and Astrological Psychology, Grove, John, p. 81).   C. G. Jung broke psychological ground when he declared in his medical degree dissertation that parapsychological  material ( evidence of dream-induced telepathy) was not evidence of pathology but of autonomous complexes.(Chartet, F. X. , Spiritualism Foundations of Jung's Psychology, p. 297)  Autonomous complexes are split off parts of the psyche usually associated with trauma or shock or breach of our boundaries and have developed a [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
