Archetypal Astrology + Carl Jung with Dr. Becca Tarnas

In this episode of The Radiant Astrology Podcast, my guest is Archetypal Astrologer Becca Tarnas, PhD.

In my interview with Dr. Tarnas, she illuminates how archetypal astrology expands the concepts of the planetary forces active in the experience of the individual psyche as well as the collective. We can see them present in the experience of one’s inner life as well as the broader context of history.

Becca is also a scholar of Carl Jung who developed the concept of the archetypes, originated from Plato, and I ask her about how Jungian depth psychology informs her work as an archetypal and counseling astrologer.

We also explore this year’s Saturn-Uranus squares and how they may manifest in collective transformation through ‘schisms’ of conflicting philosophies and viewpoints.

Dr Tarnas will be our Keynote speaker in The Astrology of Awakening II: Renewal of Hope, a free online summit April 15 - 18. Get your free tickets at
