Holley, Jason – Believing in the Night: Moon, Venus, & Mars in Relationships

Rilke famously wrote, “I believe in Night.” The ancients said the planets modern astrology associates with relationships – the Moon, Venus, and Mars – were followers of Night. We feel contact from others most closely – and often alarmingly to our put-together Daytime selves – when they connect with us through Lunar needs, Venusian attractions, Martian passions. In the shifting and often-destabilizing spaces of Night and relationship we encounter mystery and depths in ourselves and others unknowable in daylight. Drawing from ancient myth and modern psychotherapy we will ‘psychologize’ traditional sect doctrine and explore Night mysteries found in every chart.
