Astrologers have different strengths and talents in our personal toolboxes. Some of us are researchers, others are expert coaches, counselors, and therapists, still others are philosophers and spiritualists, and some indeed are writers and published authors. Not everyone has the ability and skill to write proficiently, but writing and blogging has become increasingly important as a marketing tool in a successful astrology business.
Without formal training in journalism or publishing, we have to figure out who we are as writers often in the wild, wild, west of social media, which can be daunting. I was lucky to have been an executive with the Disney Company for many years, which was a great environment to learn business writing, but I still have a lot to learn when it comes to producing creative, entertaining, and self-marketing material.

Our planetary system is embedded in the global and individual psyche, in the brain as receptors, and in the world brain as an archetypal experience.

In this course, students will examine planetary archetypes and archetypal characteristics, including those discussed in the works of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. We will discover how these appear experientially and psychologically in both natal charts and mundane charts of the collective. The identifiable archetypal influences useful to modern astrological practice will also be explored and applied.
We can trace the origins of the astrological planets to the classical gods. Their realms both classically and psychologically are a reflection of the realm of the archetypal. Planets do not make us “do” anything, but they seem to be remarkably in collusion with the archetypes of the deep Self.
The planets, as archetypes, are ambassadors from our deep core-Self to our reality world – from the archaic archetypes to their most personal expressions; from the Global ethos, to our Society/Culture, to our Family and, ultimately, to YOU.

Using a chart to determine an individual's psychological temperament has ancient origins. This course applies that knowledge to better understand children.
