Intro to Cosmos and Psyche
In this course we’ll explore one of the most important astrology texts of our times: Cosmos and Psyche. This book is a richly layered demonstration of planetary aspect theory at work. Drawing on years of research, Richard Tarnas reveals the connection between planetary cycles and archetypal experience on Earth.
This book is often considered difficult to approach, both in its volume, but also in its depth and thoroughness. Your instructors will help make this book more accessible to read and appreciate while uncovering its rich and inspiring message.
We won’t have time to read the entire book in this four-week course, so we will focus on the Saturn-Pluto chapters to examine some of the resonant themes of our current times. Then Safron Rossi will guide us through the first three sections, in which we see the value of astrology as an antidote to destructive existential and mechanistic thinking in addition to learning how to see and engage with the living archetypal world.
