Astrology for Redreaming Ourselves: Love Affairs with Intrapsychic Diversity
Jason Holley, M.A., LPCC
Free and Open to the Public or $20 for 2 CECs
Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 6-8:30pm
One of the most exciting powers of astrology in psychotherapy is its insistence on our psychic multiplicity, its acknowledgment that within each of us teems a multitude of powers, planets, and stars all carrying different agendas, gifts, memories, desires. While the Daytime consciousness that the modern world has embraced allows us to see merely one star, the Sun, astrology also bridges us to Night, a consciousness teeming with planets, stars, asteroids, nebulae – the possibility of re-membering a much vaster psychic inheritance.
In this talk we will explore one of astrology’s richest contributions: its seemingly endless mythological inspirations and pictographic vocabularies that help us to complexly imagine the inner worlds and relational lives of ourselves and our clients, as well as the dynamic stories enacted during the therapeutic encounter.
Our guides for this exploration will be Mercury and Venus, both mobile and seductive deities usually exiled from the consultation room in favor of the ‘secure attachment’-friendly Moon and the ‘emotional regulation’-loving Saturn. We will explore what it means to bring a Venusian and a Mercurial perspective into psychotherapy and the possibilities these have for work that is loosening, multidimensional, and frankly beautiful.
Note: you do not need an advanced astrological vocabulary to make use of this talk.
