This is a book for all of us who want to know why we are who we are. In this first volume of the Seminars in Psychological Astrology series, Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas team up to show how the dynamics of depth psychology work with your birth chart, and in four seminars illuminate the process and problems we all encounter in the development of individual identity. Includes: the Stages of Childhood – a psychological and astrological perspective that shows how early traumas and experiences affect adult life. Learn how the Parental Marriage affects development and how we repeat relationship patterns of parents. Subpersonalities relate to archetypal principles of signs and planets that are indicated in the natal horoscope. The final section, Puer and Senex, compares symbolism of the eternal youth and the old man, reflecting the archetypal complex caused by the vision of unbounded possibilities and the limits of time and mortality. Both authors explore real life problems, and you may reevaluate your own life as you experience these seminars.
