Tarnas, Richard – Harmonies of the Spheres: Understanding the Planetary Archetypes through the Arts

Astrology provides profound insight into the deep patterns of human experience and of our cultural history, but such insight depends on a capacity for rich archetypal perception, something that involves not only thinking but the emotions, the imagination, the aesthetic intuition, the body, the whole being. Because music and the arts engage all these dimensions, this workshop will use representative works of music as windows into the archetypal character of different eras and individuals, and into the planetary alignments they eloquently express.
