Webinar Description

The zodiac contain 6 natural polarities. These polarities depict archetypal configurations between two signs which symbolize two patterns of consciousness. Each sign contains its own energy as well as the energy of its opposite, and learning to see in terms of polarity helps with understanding both the shadows and potential gifts of each sign.

Session I: Aries-Libra
Essential themes in the Aries-Libra dance: I and Thou consciousness; separateness and togetherness; the sword of discrimination and the fine blade of value; reflection and mirroring.

(This webinar is the 1st in a series of 6 which will explore C.G. Jung’s idea of the tension of opposites and James Hillman’s idea of the union of sames in order to explore the polarity dynamic of each zodiac pair and their psychological meaning. Each session will focus on the mythology and psychology of a sign along with its polarity partner so to explore the archetypal themes and psychology of each pair. Parts 2-6 will follow over the next few terms)
