Zodiacal Polarities and the Mythic Imagination



The zodiac contains 6 natural polarities. Learning to see in terms of polarity helps with understanding both the shadows and potential gifts of each sign. In many ways, polarities can act like allopathic remedies where the cure is found in the opposite. Myth is our guide in deepening our understanding of the needs and values of each sign and the medicine they offer their polarity partner.

In this course we will look at C.G. Jung’s idea of the tension of opposites and James Hillman’s idea of the union of sames so to deepen our appreciation for the psychological value of polarities and the opposition aspect. We will then explore the polarity dynamic of each zodiac pair through Greek myth, and discern some of the archetypal themes belonging to each pair.
