The zodiac contain six 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 3: Cancer-Capricorn and Leo-Aquarius
We will look at two polarities in this session:
Essential themes in the Cancer-Capricorn dance: inner awareness and outer activity, Lunar flow and Saturnian form.
Essential themes in the Leo-Aquarius dance: individuality and inner vision, divine child and wise old one.
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. Both videos are available for viewing in our video section here.
