with Jason Holley
The image of Aries recalls the magical creature, Phrixus, a flying ram with a Golden Fleece who was a savior of innocent children and later became a sacrificial animal for kings. In this webinar we will explore the story of Phrixus, whose fleece inspired one of the most famous journeys in all of Greco-Roman myth – involving characters such as Jason and Medea, Ajax, and a great number of other less well-known figures, the details of whose stories offer insights about many expressions of the Aries archetype.
Through study of the ancient tales and images as well as the modern stories of individuals with strong Aries placements in long-term psychotherapy, we will explore core themes of the archetype including inspiration and impulse, anxiety and courage, conflict and collision, power and powerlessness, and selflessness and selfishness, all of which constellate in the process of the Aries project of taking one’s meaningful place in the world.
We will develop a nuanced view of the situation of Aries planets that places their striking needs and capacities for uniqueness, authenticity, novelty, and progress into a larger context of the mythic quests that motivate and carry them into their many adventures.
