"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born."   Carl Jung

 Leoni Hodgson, an experienced astrologer who runs her own school of astrology, studied astrology at university level in the USA. She follows a branch of astrology known as Esoteric astrology whose focus is to help the client better understand the spiritual principles uniquely affecting his or her life, thus enabling the client to make better choices in life.

 Her talk is intended to be both an introduction to some basic concepts of astrology as well as a look at the life of Jung through the lens of astrology, a subject she studied while at university.

 Jung himself studied astrology in depth. He referred to astrology as the summation of psychological knowledge from ancient times. A separate branch of astrology known as Archetypal Astrology evolved to incorporate knowledge from Jungian psychology. There are many parallels between the language of astrology and the language of Jungian Psychology. For example, the planets in the birth chart are symbols in the true Jungian sense, offering a multitude of possible interpretations without ever exhausting the meaning of the planet. Also, the astrological triplicities of fire, earth, air and water are often compared to the Jungian ideas of intuition, sensing, thinking and feeling, respectively.
