Northwest Astrological Conference (NORWAC) 2018


Cosmologies of Soul: Astrology and Alchemy

Astrology, mythology and archetypal psychology come together in James Hillman’s cosmological vision where the soul is primary. Where astrology provides a heavenly view of the imaginal cosmos of the soul, alchemy presents us with a micro-cosmos. Like astrology, it connects us to the gods, only in a very earth focused, substantive way. This presentation pulls out some elemental threads to demonstrate how Hillman’s writing on alchemical fire, earth, air, water, gives form to a micro-cosmology of the soul.


NORWC 2018 is March 22-26. Visit their website for more information on the event.

Planetary Interiority: Hillman and the Archetypal Psyche

James Hillman’s writings provide an invaluable foundation for understanding the bridge between psychology and astrology. Yet Hillman’s theoretical frame and mythopoetic perspective are rarely mentioned in astrological circles, despite the rich opportunity for cross-fertilization his work offers. This presentation explores these fertile possibilities by introducing the four movements (personifying, psychologizing, pathologizing, dehumanizing) of Hillman’s groundbreaking opus Re-Visioning Psychology (1974) and their significance in the formation of an archetypal astrology. 


UAC extends for a full week from May 24-30. Check out their website for more information on all the speakers who will be gathered in Chicago for this event.
