This moment in history represents a major threshold of transformation, and understanding the current rare planetary alignments can provide us with invaluable insights about the deeper forces at work. Where are the planets at this time, what forces are at play, and what—if any—are the historical precedents?
Join CIIS professor and renowned scholar Richard Tarnas for an illuminating talk examining what’s happening in the stars during this challenging time. Richard draws from his work in archetypal astrology, an approach influenced by Jungian and transpersonal psychology that studies the connection between the changing positions of the planets in the solar system and archetypal patterns in human experience and history. Employing this lens, Richard helps us better understand the profound drama currently facing the Earth community.
Please note that this talk will be hosted live online. Instructions on how to join the webinar will be included in your event confirmation email. If you need additional assistance finding or joining the event, please email email@example.com.
