Shawn Nygaard – A Brief Introduction To Archetypal Astrology

In February 2017, Shawn Nygaard will be speaking on “A Brief Introduction to Archetypal Astrology” at the NCGR conference taking place in Baltimore, Maryland, called “The Many Faces Of Astrology.” Today, for STARS, Shawn presents an extended version of the same talk, with opportunity for questions and discussion. The talk is accessible to all levels of astrology.

From the NCGR conference website:

The word “archetype” has become synonymous with depth psychologist Carl Jung, though archetypes are far more than Jungian in nature,and they can provide a unique lens of insight for astrologers. The late James Hillman, one of Jung’s students and former Director of the Jung Institute in Zurich, developed the field of archetypal psychology, a psychology rooted in imagination and the imagery associated with archetypes. This presentation explores the nature of archetypes in this vein, and how they can work in the field of archetypal astrology.

Saturday November 12th  2:00—4:00 Uptown Lunds Community Room

Suggested donation: $10 members/ $15 non-members
