Dr Keiron Le Grice on ‘Rediscovering the Gods: Archetypal Astrology as a Guide to Psychospiritual Transformation’
Individuation, as described by Carl Jung, is a process of deep psychological transformation leading the individual towards the realization of the Self—the organizing center and the totality of the psyche. As Jung and Joseph Campbell have demonstrated, the sequence of transformations occurring during individuation is symbolically portrayed by myths of the hero’s journey. In this discussion, by exploring connections between archetypal themes in human experience and particular planetary alignments in astrology, he will present the case that astrology can be used to help illuminate the dynamics of individuation, serving as a guide to one’s own heroic journey.
Keiron is a guest lecturer in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at the Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, and adjunct faculty in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program at the California Institute of Integral Studies, San Francisco. He is the author of The Archetypal Cosmos: Rediscovering the Gods in Myth, Science and Astrology and Discovering Eris: The Symbolism and Significance of a New Planetary Archetype. He is also founding editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. His latest book, The Rebirth of the Hero: Mythology as a Guide to Spiritual Transformation, will be released later this year. Keiron currently lives in Wales with his wife and son.
