This book attempts to ascertain whether the search for one’s highest and true being is inherent in humanity, how it can best be accomplished, and with what possible results.
To this end, the author identifies common themes in psychology, myth, and astrology. She suggests that the theme most deeply-rooted in the human psyche is that of the hero’s journey, and examines what this means in the different disciplines.
By demonstrating that contemporary astrological practice has much in common with psychology, she offers a perspective which combines both disciplines to help people to actualise their highest potential.
Chapters include examinations of the Jungian perspective, the mythic perspective, the humanistic approach, the role of values, transpersonal psychology, humanistic astrology, psychological astrology, and more.
