Astrology Ireland with Rick Tarnas: Get the Big Picture, Then Go Deep: Developing Your Archetypal Eye

A talk by Richard Tarnas

Astrology Ireland welcomes you to our April talk with acclaimed astrologer, Rick Tarnas.

The practice of astrology is only partly the result of studying astrological books and learning the techniques of various schools of astrological analysis. The keys to insightful interpretation go beyond such technical knowledge: We need a well-developed symbolic sense, which can be nurtured by sustained imaginative engagement with literature and the arts. We also require a constant effort to deepen our own self-awareness to help guard against personal biases and projections. And not least, our astrological insight depends on a breadth of perspective that only comes from life experience, enriched by wide-ranging study of history and biography, society and culture.

Join Richard Tarnas as he shares something of what he has learned from his own long journey as an astrologer. He will cover both specific tips such as what to look for when first examining a natal chart or transits, and longer-term life strategies for cultivating that inner eye of discernment that can help us live our own lives more fruitfully and perhaps assist others in living theirs.

Who is our amazing guest speaker?

Richard Tarnas is a professor of psychology and cultural history at the California Institute of Integral Studies, where he founded the graduate program in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness. Formerly the director of programs and education at Esalen Institute, he is the author of The Passion of the Western Mind, a history of the Western world view from the ancient Greek to the postmodern that is widely used in universities, and of Cosmos and Psyche, which received the Book of the Year Prize from the Scientific and Medical Network and is the basis for the documentary series Changing of the Gods.
