Webinar Description

This is the concluding session of the four-part polarity series.

The six polarities in the zodiac depict archetypal patterns of consciousness. Each sign contains its own energy as well as an attunement to the energy of its opposite. Learning to see in terms of polarity helps with understanding both the shadows and gifts of each sign.

Session 4: Taurus-Scorpio and Gemini-Sagittarius
We will look at two polarities in this session:
Essential themes in the Taurus-Scorpio dance: rooting and transforming, Aphrodite’s sensate imagination and the sorceress Medea’s rejuvenating power.
Essential themes in the Gemini-Sagittarius dance: knowledge and wisdom, the winding paths of Hermes and Zeus’ divine light.

This series explores 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.  Please note that Parts 1 and 2 of this series both include an in-depth review of Jung and Hillman’s ideas on the problem of opposites. All 3 previous videos are available for viewing in our video section here.
