Security in Chaotic Times

Dream on 11/30/2018:   I was presented with an oval butterfly wing by a woman.  The image captivated me. Associations:   The oval wing of a butterfly is related to chaos theory and how astrology may also be explained by this.   Chaos theory is known as the ‘butterfly effect’. Chaos  activity is the way in which a small event initiated in a time and place far away can correlate with a large event in another place.  The example used is that of a butterfly wing vibrating [...]

Dreams and the water of life

Psychosynthesis involves grounding images that intend to drive one to meeting real needs rather than wants.  If a dream (or any psychic image)  does not become grounded through a process of writing it down and to be preferred -drawing it; maturation does not become manifest in the process of individuation.   It is a gift to realize that there may be an invisible hand guiding one as a dream evolves over time.  For example in my young adulthood , I had water dreams in which I [...]

Who is in control of your actions?

I have been taking a psychosynthesis course by the well-known psychologist Will Parfitt for many months now. And one of the main theses is the process of dis-identification of the ego. One of the exercises we do is to say; "I have my mind and my thoughts but am not my mind and my thoughts I have my feelings and emotions but am mot my feelings and emotions. I have my body and sensations but I am not my body and sensations. I, am I [...]

That fateful meeting between Trump and Kim Jong un

June 12, 2018 will be a day of negotiations between Donald J. Trump (DJT) and his team vs. the North Korean delegation in Singapore.  I am nervous as I consider that the fate of our country to be in the hands of such a leader as Donald j. Trump.  Having considered how he tries to make unilateral decisions above his team’s logical thinking, he may in fact over-rule members of his own team and we don’t know what to expect. In assessing the possible outcomes [...]

A Woman's projections onto men- a study in co-dependency

The animus  has been associated an unconscious complex in  female psychology  according C.G. Jung's pschoanalytic model  (Hall, James A. The Jungian Experience, 1986 p.36).  The Sun in the Huber method is symbolic of the will and is an ego planet.  It can be a conscious structure that mediates between the inner world and reality (of relationships) (Huber, Louise and Bruno, The Planets, 1006, p.34).  In the personal sphere of relationships, the animus can be cold, nonpersonal and take a general nature of critical remarks made [...]

The dilemna of Iran supporting Palestinians through arms and social services when they are under extreme sanctions

Iran has a land surface seventy nine times that of Israel's.  Its Revolutionary Guard is larger than Israeli's Defense Force.  Although most Irani people support the Shiites (followers of Ali), they continue to support the Palestinians, eighty-five percent are Sunni Muslims.  During the Pahlavi dynasty, Iran recognized Israel but through the 1979 Revolution, they became militant Islamic supporters.  In Yemen, the Houthis are Shiite Muslims and Iran has a proxy war there aginst Saudi Arabia and the United States. On July 26, 2019 Iran tested [...]

The Soul in Aspect Pattern Astrological Psychology

  Edgar Cayce believed that astrological influences show how the soul is connected to the planets.   (Akashic Records, Todeschi, p. 44).  You are "born at such a time in a certain place into the earth- surrounded by planets- at a time and place which materially represents who we are at a soul level."  The study of astrology could give an individual a fairly accurate indication of qualities, traits, opportunities and challenges that he/she came in with-some of the same information that is available from the [...]

Preface to Life Passages 2017

Preface I was very pleased to be asked to write the preface to Life Passages, in which John Grove synthesizes age progression through the twelve houses of the horoscope—the method devised by Bruno and Louise Huber—with the eight stages of psycho-social development identified by Erik Erikson—the German-born, American psychotherapist who coined the phrase, ‘identity crisis’—and he applies these methods to the processing of personal material that arises from within at strategic times of change accompanied by vivid dreams. John is a psychotherapist with extensive experience of [...]
