Libra in Myth and Psyche


In this webinar Jason Holley looks at myths that reveal underlying dynamics of the Libra archetype as part of his series on the 12 signs, myth and psyche.

Libra is the most recent zodiacal constellation in the Greco-Roman tradition, occupying a re-imagined space between its older neighbors Virgo and Scorpio. This webinar will explore how the images of the sign which have changed across time speak to the complexity of Libran consciousness, full of polarities and tensions: from the Claws of the Scorpion to the Balance held by the Virgin; from Themis, goddess of justice, to Eris, goddess of discord.

These changing images and the complexity of integrating them take us into the heart of the Libran situation of ‘between-ness’ and the preoccupation with others and otherness. Through creative arrangements and re-arrangements of the ancient constellation myths and the life stories of modern individuals, we will develop a nuanced and deeply aesthetic understanding of the psychological depths, and debts, of Libran signatures.
