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.

Cultural Crisis and Transformation: Exploring Archetypal Patterns in World News and Culture

$24.95

How can we better understand the significance and implications of the ecological, economic, and cultural crises we now face? What are the deeper forces at work shaping the contemporary zeitgeist and connecting the major events of our time? Is it possible to place our moment in history in the context of great cyclical and diachronic patterns of change? Responses to these and other related questions are explored in this second issue of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. The nine essays featured here use archetypal astrology to shine a light on the deeper dynamics of history and contemporary culture. Contributions include cultural historian Richard Tarnas's analysis of the major world transits of the last five years, focusing especially on the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto T-square, and the second part of his exploration of the Saturn-Neptune complex. Also included are the second parts of Rod O'Neal's in-depth analysis of the Puritan movement and Keiron Le Grice's exploration of archetypal themes in the music of Bruce Springsteen. The other articles cover a wide variety of topics relevant to an archetypal understanding of contemporary culture such as the global financial crisis, the Israel-Palestine conflict, the gay rights movement, the history of rock and roll, and recent achievements in the sporting world.

- The parkha, or eight trigrams of the I Ching, representing the elements, directions, seasons, and fundamental universal forces
- How to analyze the character of hours, days, months, and years, so as to determine auspicious times for various activities

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.

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? What archetypal themes is it associated with? In what ways might the myths of Eris, the Greek goddess of strife, be relevant to the astrological meaning? What can Eris's discovery tell us about the evolutionary challenges we now face? Drawing on a wide variety of perspectives -- including mythology, ecology, religion, history, philosophy and Jungian psychology -- Le Grice carefully constructs a multi-faceted picture of Eris's possible meaning, helping to illuminate the unprecedented events of our time and providing clues to our possible future directions.
