Rossi, Safron – 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.
