Psychology & Astrology: How the Language of the Stars Tells the Story of the Soul

Northwest Creative & Expressive Arts Institute

Date: Saturday, March 2, 2024
Hours: 9:00 am – 12:00 PT
Location: Online via Zoom
CEs: 3 CEs
Cost: $ 99.00

Archeological evidence suggests humans have looked to the cosmos to understand their lives for millennia. Astrology literally means the language of the stars. Psychology’s etymological roots tell us it is the study of the soul. In the early 20th century, what had been primarily used as a divinatory tool began to take on a new purpose. Venerable psychological theorists like C.G. Jung began to see the value of integrating this ancient tool into their practice, forever changing the astrology field into one with contemporary cross-discipline applications. In this workshop, we will explore how astrology came to be paired with psychology and why psychologists find it an irreplaceable tool. We will consider the meaning of the Planets and Luminaries through a psychological lens and how they aid in healing and self-actualization. Next, we will look at some of the key planetary cycles related to human development. This introduction into these disciplines used in tandem will illuminate this broader therapeutic application for you and your clients.

Learning Objectives: 

1) Gain an understanding of the practice of psychological astrology and discover the psychologists who use(d) astrology in their work, such as C.G. Jung, Roberto Assagioli, Stanislav Grof, and others.

2) Learn about the overlap and cross-pollination of astrology and psychology, including astrology as archetypal parallels to human development, and interpersonal dynamics (synastry).

3) Applied Cosmic Therapy: Learn some of the therapeutic benefits of integrating astrology into the counseling room, for example, how astrology can give a counselor/coach invaluable information on behavioral patterns, interpersonal dynamics, timing, and big picture (soul healing).

Contrary to popular belief, a myth is not a fallacy but a symbolic story imbued with universal and collective truths. They are the tales woven through time, tethering us to our ancestors, society, and culture. Unpacking these myths illuminates the origins of your actions, attitudes, and behaviors.

In this workshop, you will discover an ally, a guide, who you can look to for support whenever doing experiential self-work. Together, we will unpack myths that support and impede living authentically. When you identify these narratives, you’ll discover that attempting to live another person’s story will always feel ill-fitting. And more importantly, your true, ever-evolving self has a beautiful myth to tell.
