Astrology and C.G. Jung

It is an interesting story how a non-Psychologist and non-Psychiatrist like me ended up reading through the work of the genius Swiss Psychiatrist C.J. Jung. What is even more interesting, is the fact that the pathway that led me to eventually considering formally studying Astrology went through encountering convincing evidence to do so in his invaluable work.

But let’s get things right from up from the start. For summer reading a few years back, my wife – who happens to be a medical doctor, offered me a dated book written by Stanislav Grof, a psychiatrist and a pioneer on early -and yes legal in those days, LSD treatment studies. He had performed thousands of supervised LSD treatment sessions during the sixties and seventies until the substance was legally banned even for medical usage mostly due to misguided and unfortunate political reasons.

On a final note, I have found out as a bonus that in Jung’s work there is an underlying layer that holds everything in his theories together but is not advertised at all. One could describe it more like a framework that enables connection and interaction between all the different concepts on top of it. Alas, this framework is Astrology.
