AstroMythology: The Myth We are Living
This evening will provide an introduction to the methodology and the
building blocks for seeing the birth chart as a map that illuminates the
archetypal mythology that an individual is expressing through their life.
Carl Jung wrote, “I was driven to ask myself in all seriousness: What
is the myth you are living? I took it upon myself to get to know ‘my myth’
and I regarded this as the task of tasks.” While the natal chart is often
interpreted as a psychological portrait, Wendy Z. Ashley developed a
methodology for how the chart can illuminate our ‘task of tasks’ and uncover
the story of our lives and how the central themes are part of a myth, or
larger story. As we experience the ‘larger story’ that is reflected in our
chart and lives, we have an increased awareness of our life path and the
forces at play in shaping it.
The exploration of planets, stars and
signs, seen through the lens of AstroMythology, will enrich and expand each
participant’s understanding within the astrological tradition(s) they are
currently using. And it provides an entry point to an ancient and yet
modern tradition of viewing the chart as an archetypal story.
