Healing the Shadow, with Joe Landwehr

Astrologers often seek to put a positive spin on our interpretations in order to help our clients feel better about themselves. But as we all know, everything in the birth chart also has its shadow side, and how willing we are to face and transmute the shadow will often determine what the ultimate expression of our astrological potential will be.

Jung considered the shadow to be the guardian of the threshold to the process of self-actualization, so it will be important to make friends with all those aspects of ourselves that we have rejected, projected onto others, or simply been unable or unwilling to explore. In this lecture, we identify where in the birthchart our shadows are most likely to show up, and we talk about how to work with these shadow aspects of our personality in order to grow into our wholeness.
