Cancer in Myth and Psyche


Jason Holley continues his mythic tour of the zodiac in this inspiring webinar on the Cancer archetype.

The appearance of Karkinos, the Great Crab, is a very brief episode in the ancient myth of Hercules and the Hydra, yet like many such momentary dreams and images placed in context, it can offer profound insight into the encounter with lunar consciousness and the borderlands of emotional process that Cancer involves.  The principal players and settings in the story – Hera, an evolution of the Great Mother herself; Hercules, a solar hero; the Hydra, a lunar ‘monster’; and the Lake of Lerna, a mysterious deep body of water – all have complex stories through which we can both recognize and re-cognize Cancerian process.
In this webinar we will explore the ancient stories as well as the lives of individuals in modern psychotherapy with strong Cancer signatures, to develop a deeper and more complex understanding of Cancerian and lunar process – which like the crab depicted, occupy a borderland space between the land of consciousness and the deep life-giving yet turbulent seas of the unconscious.  We will also consider how these dreams are continuously re-dreamt and re-imagined.

Enjoyed this very much

Very much a fan of Jason's work, his deep dive into myth speaks loudly becoming remembered by my deeper self; I see his descriptions popping up in everyday life each time I listen to his work, which I enjoy quite often. Again a big thank you to Jason for all his hard work.

Spoke to all of me

I loved this lecture. It was as if he was speaking to me. I live my life in dreams and the part where he speaks about kids on the sea shore, I actually purchased some art from an emerging artist of kids on the sea shore. I dreamed the images, and when I saw my dream in reality I knew I had to have them. They don't really fit the decor in my home, but I can't seem to part with them. Then I listened to this webinar and all became clear to me. I have a Cancer ascendant.

Loved Cancer in Myth & Psyche

Jason is engaging and fun "to be with" via a course like this. He has a great presence and way of communicating his deep intelligence.

très drôle !

approche ludique et profonde inédite

Outstanding work as usual

Thank you so much for continuing the wheel of this series, Jason! Absolutely loving every one of them. Surely this must have been a difficult one, with the seeming lack of content from which to draw, but you did brilliantly. Not a dry eye, as they say (particularly for those of us with Cancer in the chart…). Exquisite work and I’m still reverberating with the ‘Molting’ analogy. Powerful and accurate. Blessings!
