Mapping the Psyche:  An Introduction to Psychological Astrology

Mapping the Psyche is a three volume introduction to psychological astrology, based on the transcriptions of a course Clare taught for many years at the Centre for Psychological Astrology. Their titles are as follows:

Volume 1: The Planets and the Signs of the Zodiac

Volume 2: Planetary Aspects and the Houses of the Horoscope

Volume 3: Kairos, the Astrology of Time

These books are an ideal entry point into astrology’s symbolic language, and are recommended for anyone with a serious interest in discovering how astrology can enhance self-understanding and promote psychic integration.

Audience participation in these seminar style books ensures that psychological terms are fully explained and illustrated with personal examples.  Clare draws from a variety of sources, including the perennial philosophy, alchemy and the kabbalah, demonstrating the inherently spiritual and magical dimensions of this approach to psychological astrology.
