Keiron Le Grice is a professor of depth psychology and program chair in the Jungian and Archetypal Studies specialization at Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, and co-founder of the Institute of Transpersonal and Archetypal Studies (ITAS). He is the author of several books and a founding editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology.
"This book is long overdue. The authors have filled an important
gap in the Jungian literature. Scholars of Jungian psychology and
astrologers will gain much from the editors' sensitive and detailed
appreciation of the importance that Jung gave to astrology. The
editors' grasp of both Jung's psychology and astrological symbolism
gives them a unique ability to synthesize and bridge these fields.
For those of us interested in spiritual and emotional growth, this
work will be invaluable." - Lionel Corbett, MD; Jungian
Analyst and Professor at Pacifica Graduate Institute, USA
"Jung on Astrology is a book my colleagues and I have long hoped for. Not only has Jungian psychology had a profound influence on the development of contemporary astrology, but the accumulated insights of the astrological tradition subtly shaped Jung's thinking about the nature of archetypes, the predispositions of his patients, and the ages of history. The full extent and impact of Jung's long involvement with astrology is still being uncovered, and this compilation by Le Grice and Rossi can now serve as a foundational text for future studies." - Richard Tarnas, Ph.D.; Professor at California Institute of Integral Studies, USA
