Making the Most of Mercury Retrograde

Have a listen to this fifty minute dialogue on how to make the most of Mercury retrograde from a healing or therapeutic perspective between my dear friend and colleague, Delia Shargel and myself. I know these three week Mercury retrograde periods can be tough and challenge our patience and resolve, and I see and feel the true gifts when we stay with our process, whatever that may be right now.

Creating the Oracular Container: A Dialogue with Matthew Stelzner

Trio3

In session five, Delia and Jessica welcome our first guest to Deeper than DayMatthew Stelzner, host of Correlations, the Archetypal Astrology Podcast, where both of us have been regular guests since 2011. Matthew describes his evolving journey as an astrologer over the past 22 years, and how the creation of oracular space in an astrological reading allows the living symbols of the planetary archetypes to express themselves, and the magic to happen. The three of us explore the similarities and differences between opening to an archetypal download and participating in an ongoing therapeutic relationship.

Personal Experience and World Transits: Participating in the Evolutionary Unfoldment of the Anima Mundi

In session three, we explore how world transits are ongoing evolutionary expressions of the Anima Mundi, or world soul, and how our personal attention to this layer of archetypal expression contextualizes our psychological understanding of birth charts and personal transits. Our individual participation in the collective energies through our birth charts (the world transits at the moment of our incarnation) and our personal transits (the world transits’ ongoing, unfolding relationship to our birth chart) creates our unique, personal relationship with the transpersonal outer planets. How we take responsibility for bringing transpersonal archetypal energies down to earth in human form becomes our offering to the Divine.

Correlations Podcast: Psychological and Astrological Complexes

As a depth psychotherapist and archetypal astrologer, I have deep reverence for the inner and outer work my friend, fellow psychotherapist and astrologer, Delia Shargel has done over the course of her life’s journey. Delia is a wise soul with so much to offer the world from the fertile ground of her psychotherapy practice where years of learning, research, and study have led to really amazing and critical insights into the nature of psychological and astrological complexes. Her newest article, “Psychological and Astrological Complexes: An Evolving Perspective” found in Issue 5 of Archai Journal, is a must read for any serious practitioner or student of these disciplines.

In this episode of Correlations: The Archetypal Astrology Podcast, Delia Shargel, Matthew Stelzner, and I discuss Delia’s groundbreaking article. We explore what complexes are and how they function psychologically, giving examples of how we can use the natal chart to work with them psycho-spiritually.  We also consider how this process could be a way of “feminizing” the Saturn archetype.

You may read Delia’s article here for free at Archai.org. And the really awesome appendix here with helpful tips on how to work with complexes. 

Deeper Than Day: Saturn-Neptune Complex and Emotional Boundaries

On this Full Moon we would like to introduce you to our podcast, Deeper Than Day, a conversation born out of our love for depth psychology and archetypal astrology. Hosted by Delia Shargel and Jessica Garfield-Kabbara. To enter this dialogue, visit us at DeeperThanDay.com and subscribe to our blog to follow this podcast.

Astrology is the language of the stars, as psychology is the language of the psyche. Logos, the Word, gives breath to all things, making meaningful the utterance of the cosmos in the patterns of the heavenly bodies, as the utterance of the psyche comes in symptom, feeling, image, and is made meaningful by our attempt to translate our deepest human experience into language.  We invite you to join us in our ongoing dialogue as we explore the phenomenological correlations between cosmos and psyche.

In today’s session we explore the Saturn-Neptune complex and it’s relationship to emotional and energetic boundaries in healing work.

 

Correlations: Re-Visioning Saturn

In this episode of Correlations: The Archetypal Astrology Podcast, Matthew Stelzner, Delia Shargel, and myself have a really meaningful and fun conversation about my article, “Re-Visioning Saturn” published in the Archai Journal. I felt so honored and thrilled as we spent an hour and a half exploring some of my widening sense around the evolution of the Saturn archetype. We discussed the dynamic and static masculine and feminine qualities of the planet, while we deeply questioned the patriarchal worldview the astrological tradition, including archetypal astrology, have emerged.
