Mythic Themes in the Chart

What mythic themes can you find by investigating the interactions of the personal planets in your chart (the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn)? Ancient astrologers found these myths in the personal planets since they didn't have asteroids or Outer Planets to evoke these myths.

For example, someone with a strong Mercury and a strong Mars (regardless of aspect) would display a nature like the Greek god of fire and metalworking, Hephaestus, and someone with prominent Mercury and Venus interactions would display characteristics of the Greek goddess of war, wisdom and crafts. Athena.

According to Liz Greene in her book The Mythic Journey, "Mythic stories can bring relief from internal conflicts and help you discover greater depth, richness and meaning in life." In this lecture, Kelly will show you how to explore the mythic stories in your chart!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
