Archetypes and the Planets

Archetypes and the Planets

Join astrologer Andre Kahr and writer Béa Gonzalez for an in-depth exploration of planetary archetypes. Humans have forever projected their longing, psychology, and religions onto the sky. The podcast weaves together elements from astronomy, mythology, psychology and literature through the vehicle of the planets. Is this the mother mythology? Join us and begin to make connections for yourself.

In this episode of Archetypes and the Planets, Béa and Andre explore the upcoming year and what may be in store archetypally. The next two years include a lot of change as the three outer planets move into new signs. What might these changes bring? Nothing is set in stone and all we can do is connect some of the themes associated with these archetypal principles but buckle up! Things are shifting….

In this episode of Archetypes and the Planets, we explore the upcoming ingress of Pluto into Aquarius. We had a taste back in March when it ingressed into Aquarius for two months before returning to Capricorn. Some of the themes that were highlighted then were developments in Artificial Intelligence, the ongoing battle between democracy and fascism and advances in the medical field. What connections do these things have to the prev...

In this episode we explore how planetary aspects to the natal Moon in the chart can impact the personality.  These planetary conversations can be challenging or supportive depending of the nature of the geometric relationship between the planets in question, but they always imply a meeting of archetypal forces.  Please be sure to share this discussion with others who might be interested and don't forget to give us a "like" and leav...

In this episode, we begin our exploration of planetary aspects. Aspects are the conversations that the planets have with each other and which colour the expression of their significations. We begin the Sun and what it means when it conjuncts [or occupies the same space] as the other planets. Chart examples include Joseph Campbell, Oprah Winfrey and Jeff Buckley.

In this episode we shift to an often overlooked part of any astrological examination---the elements [Fire, Earth, Air, Water.] From the work of the pre-Socratic philosophers to CG Jung and typology and finally, the recent work of neuro-anatomist, Jill Bolte-Taylor, we explore ways to deal with the element in the chart that might be weak, but which is often the place where the solutions can be found.  In a tribute to his earthy char...

"Discovered" in 2005, you might be inclined to discount this planetary body which demoted Pluto due, in part, to the work of self-described Pluto killer, Mike Brown. The mythology of this dwarf planet is fascinating and important. She plays the key role in igniting the Trojan War and is also responsible, according to the poet Hesiod, for the turning of the natural world on one day when the sun rose in the West and set in the East. ...

In this episode, Andre and Béa explore the archetypal Pluto, demoted in the world of astronomy but still very much present in the archetypal world which scoffs at our attempts to repress things. In this episode we explore the personal, the political, the motivational and the inevitable expressions of this archetype. Is Pluto the planet of transformation as the moderns claim? Well, yes. But expect to roast a bit at first, because no...

In this episode, Andre and Béa journey into the psychedelic-like dream world of Neptune, the god of dreams, mystery, and addiction. As we examine some of the tales connected to this archetype, we ask--is it possible to speak about such things without slipping into the mist? You might be surprised to learn about the archetype's darker side and be interested in some of the remedies that help us stay grounded in reality.

With this episode, the archetypal begins to really take shape.  The visible and invisible spheres of the world are separated by the planets that lie beyond Saturn. The first of these planets is Uranus, whose "discovery" in 1781 heralded the unmistakable entry into the modern era.    Uranus is electric, quirky, brilliant, and revolutionary. Every seven years, it passes through each sign, marking historical eras and generations. Give...
