with Karen Hamaker-Zondag
Astrology can benefit enormously from the psychology of C.G. Jung. His teachings facilitate a depth interpretation of horoscopes. Your course instructor, Karen Hamaker-Zondag, has worked with the combination of Jungian psychology and astrology for over 40 years; these lessons are a concise guide to Jungian chart interpretation based on her experience.
In this online course we look at the basic concepts of Jungian psychology and how we can use them practically in chart interpretation. Concepts discussed are consciousness and the unconscious, ego, shadow, complexes and projection, persona, animus and anima, and Jung’s typology. The lessons also offer a step-by-step method for delineation, illustrated by several examples.
Enrich your chart interpretation with Jung’s insights!
Jung’s psychology is not the result of intellectual and abstract thinking, but is solidly based in experience. Jung created a distinctive type of psychology that gives us a profound understanding of the dynamics of our psyche. His psychology, generally known as Jungian psychology or analytical psychology, gives us a coherent view of human experience, including the religious and metaphysical realms.
In these lessons we will have a look at the basic principles of Jung’s psychology and how we can apply them to astrological practice. The combination of Jungian psychology and astrology seems to be a match made in heaven!
