 Archetypal Cosmology and Astrology: A New Frontier in Depth Psychology

with Dr Keiron Le Grice, Chair of the Jungian and Archetypal Studies specialization

Archetypal cosmology is a new academic discipline, rooted in the ancient symbolic system of astrology, that carries forward and extends the work of C. G. Jung and James Hillman in the recognition of a cosmological dimension to archetypal psychology. Based on the idea that the planetary configurations in the solar system reflect the deep order of the psyche, archetypal cosmology uses astrology to map the shifting themes and patterns of human experience. Symbolically interpreting the meaning of the planetary movements and positions can help us better understand our relationships to the archetypal powers and principles shaping our lives.

Join Dr Le Grice in this webinar as he introduces archetypal cosmology and explores its place in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies M.A./Ph.D. curriculum. The webinar will consist of a 30–40 minute presentation followed by Q & A in which participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the program of study.

“Archetypal Cosmology is the academic field, incorporating archetypal astrology, concerned with understanding the theoretical basis of astrological correlations and their implications for the wider worldview. Drawing on scholarship from many areas such as astrology, depth psychology, history, philosophy, cosmology, religious studies, cultural studies, the arts, and the new sciences, archetypal cosmology is multidisciplinary subject primarily focused on understanding the nature of archetypes and their role in the universe.”
