Intro to Cosmos and Psyche

Online Course
with Safron Rossi and Tony Howard
March 25 to April 19, 2020

Course Description

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.

Rave Reviews

"Dr. Rossi is a wonderful presenter, she has great knowledge of her subject, she presents in a passionate, persuasive, pondering way. I have personally been studying Jung for over thirty years, I was fascinated by the unique take on Alchemy, and Astrology. I have now watched my video 4 times every time finding new facets of her work."
– Rebecca S.
“I enjoyed Dr. Rossi's presentation on astrology, alchemy and the psyche. This framework for looking at psychological processes for transformation for the individual, within a cosmic lens was powerful. The presentation of the material was fantastic and the visuals Dr. Rossi embedded in her presentation were phenomenal.”
– Constance D.
“Tony, your lectures have been stellar. It's clear that you're rigorously thinking through the order in which we need to hear the information to facilitate our actually taking it in. Moreover, you're also resisting the temptation to make the meanings formulaic, and thus overly reductive. I think it's quite remarkable that after a mere three lessons, I'm starting to grok how to think astrologically.”
– Susan Shannon
