In a mere five weeks, we’re going to explore basic planetary symbolism to capture the dynamics of who we are and how we can flourish.

Instructors: Joseph Crane and Enid Newberg
Begins Tuesday May 4, 2021; Live Meetings: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Pacific Time

In an unusual alliance with some trends in modern psychology, this course investigates why we say someone is a "good soul" and how the cracks and breaks in soul express in "character flaws." We also explore what diminishes, or even kills soul – and how it can come back to life. These ideas form the bedrock of "the good life” and how we can act in harmony with all of ourselves and with the larger world.

The course also draws core material from the ancient world that saw the soul or psyche in a variety of perspectives: body and mind together, animating breath and life force, a basic form that may exist alongside and may outlive the body, or as an identity that reveals itself to others and lives among others in the larger world. Psyche and soul also represented states of being and were used to express an immortal essence transcending our personal identities.

Through five weeks of live meetings, and a course site with written discussion forums to continue the conversations started during the live meetings as well as readings and videos, students will grow their understanding of how astrology incorporates these concepts and how this understanding can enliven and deepen astrological interpretation.

Topics covered include:

  1. Matters of Life and Death: Psyche, Zombies and Ghosts, the Afterlife and Astrology’s Sun
  2. Body and Soul, Temperament and the Rhythms of Life
  3. How Soul Weakens and Dies and how it Heals
  4. In the Community: Human Flourishing in the Larger World
  5. Ego and Self in Modern Psychology and Astrology

Our emphasis is not on advocating a specific point of view but to engage in meaningful conversation, generate deeper exploration and contemplation, and to offer astrologers further tools for meaningful interpretation
