Discovering Eris The Symbolism and Significance of a New Planetary Archetype

product image
$29.95

In astrology, each planet in our solar system is symbolically associated with specific archetypes, characteristics, themes, and patterns in human experience. The discovery in 2005 of Eris--a dwarf planet beyond Pluto--was therefore an event of great significance for astrology as well as astronomy.

In this unique book, Keiron Le Grice considers the astrological significance of Eris. How, he asks, can we determine Eris's meaning? With what archetypal themes is it associated? In what ways might the myths of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife, be relevant to the astrological meaning? What can the discovery of Eris tell us about the evolutionary challenges we face today?

Drawing on a broad range of perspectives--mythology, ecology, religion, history, philosophy, and Jungian psychology--Le Grice carefully constructs a multifaceted picture of Eris's possible meaning, helping to illumine the unprecedented events of our time and offering clues to our possible future directions.

product image
$35.00

The modern world is passing through a time of critical change on many levels: cultural, political, ecological, and spiritual. We are witnessing the decline and dissolution of the old order and the tumult and uncertainty of a new birth. Against this background is the urgent need for a coherent framework of meaning to guide and to lead individuals and society beyond the growing fragmentation of culture, belief, and personal identity.

Keiron Le Grice asserts that developing insights of a new cosmology can provide this framework to us discover an underlying order that shapes our life experiences. In a compelling synthesis of ideas from the seminal thinkers of depth psychology and new paradigm sciences, The Archetypal Cosmos positions the new discipline of archetypal astrology at the center of an emerging worldview that reunifies psyche and cosmos, spirituality and science, and mythology and metaphysics to enable us to see mythic gods, heroes, and themes in a new light. The author draws especially on the work of Jung, Joseph Campbell, Richard Tarnas, Fritjof Capra, David Bohm and Brian Swimme.

Heralding a "rediscovery of the gods" and passage into a new spiritual era, The Archetypal Cosmos presents a new understanding of the role of myth and archetypal principles in our lives, one that could give a cosmic perspective and deeper meaning to our personal experiences.

Archai The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology: The Birth of a New Discipline Issue 1

$24.95

This volume, the premier issue of the Archai journal, lays foundations for the academic discipline of archetypal cosmology, which has emerged from the confluence of a number of different fields: depth psychology, archetypal astrology, history, philosophy, cosmology, religious studies, comparative mythology, cultural studies, the arts, and the new-paradigm sciences. With contributions from Richard Tarnas, Stanislav Grof, Keiron Le Grice, and Rod O'Neal, this book provides an introduction to the theoretical basis of archetypal cosmology and its applications to cultural history, biography, and the arts. The articles address topics such as the historical context of archetypal cosmology, the nature and meaning of the planetary archetypes, their connections to the psychodynamics of the unconscious, and the new method of historical analysis called archetypal historiography. Also included, as examples of this kind of analysis, are a case study of the Puritan movement, an analysis of Bruce Springsteen's song lyrics, and an exploration of the Saturn-Neptune complex through the study of the lives and works of major cultural figures, including Blake, Coleridge, Freud, Wilde, Bergman, and Woolf.

Sky and Psyche

$35.00

The relationship between the human soul and the stars has been central to the spiritual and esoteric traditions of Western thought, and many other cultures, for thousands of years. Medieval Christians thought that heaven was located above the earth, beyond the stars. Our modern society, however, has largely severed the relationship between the human spirit and the sky. This book explores ideas, beliefs and practices which meet at the boundary of psychology and cosmology, the universe and human imagination. This book addresses this special relationship from a variety of challenging and inspiring approaches. The contributors include James Hillman, the founder of archetypal psychology and Jungian analyst; astrologer Liz Greene; Professor Neville Brown of Mansfield College, Oxford; Nicholas Pearson of the Temenos Academy; Professor Jarita Holbrook of the University of Arizona; Dr Angela Vos of the University of Kent; Bernadette Brady; Jules Cashford; Noel Cobb, the former editor of Sphinx; Cherry Gilchrist; Robert Hand; and Professor Richard Tarnas of the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Astrology: A Place in Chaos

$28.00

Astrology has been open to criticism through a large part of its long history. In this groundbreaking book Bernadette Brady gives new insights in the intensity of these criticisms by placing astrology into its initial setting, its original world of ancient creation myths linked to the great creative void. Modern chaos theory has now rediscovered this void and Brady maps astrology to chaos theory to produce "chaotic astrology." The result is an insight into fate, freewill and the nature of astrology itself implying that it is neither a science nor a religion, and suggests instead that astrology is an instrument of chaos, a fertile and pragmatic tool for understanding the patterns of life. Original and insightful as ever, Brady navigates the reader through a breath-taking journey which can change forever the way one views the world.

Alignments: How to Live in Harmony with the Universe

$15.00

This book is based upon the premise that our life has meaning and that we are privy to know what our specific purpose is for being here. In a psychological setting, astrological ideas and theory are translated into practical therapy with tangible results. No longer is the "patient" gloomily working out his or her issues. Instead, there is a focus, a direction to the therapy process that guides a person towards his or her specific calling in life. This book presents a new, radical, readable, and inspiring method for aligning one's personality with one's calling.

The authors, a psychotherapist and an astrologer, both seasoned in their crafts, have designed a book which develops practical methods of discovering an individual's calling in life; whether his or her life enables the reader to evaluate if their lives are on track or off track with this particular calling; describes an original and succinct theory with practical examples; presents a new look at relationships--based on calling--which deepens the partnership of marriage, friendship, and parenting; sees calamities, dreams, and synchronicities as wake-up calls to finding one's calling; and deals with these serious subjects in a humorous and lighthearted way.
