Psychology is all about relationships, with ourselves and other people. Astrology gives us a code to learn the raw materials that we and other people are made of so we can better understand the dynamics that play out in our lives and relationships.
Psychstrology, or psychological astrology, can help us cultivate more compassion for ourselves and others, which can lead to extraordinary shifts. Jung appreciated astrology because the signs, or archetypes, point to the inextricable connection between us as a collective whole. Besides helping us develop more empathy, being aware of our interconnectedness is especially important during these divided and uncertain times.
This book will empower you to:
- cultivate deeper self-compassion.
- identify the benefits and challenges of your astrological nature.
- use synchronicity to align with your true self and the next right step.
- enhance your closest relationships.
- grow in the direction of balance and wholeness.
STACY DICKER, PhD, is a clinical psychologist in private practice. She has been seeing psychotherapy clients in the Denver area for the last twenty years, and taught courses on eating disorders and adult psychotherapy to upper-level psychology majors at the University of Colorado, Boulder, for nearly ten years.¿
Her interest in astrology was first sparked by Linda Goodman's famous book Love Signs more than thirty years ago. A longtime student of astrology, Stacy has benefited tremendously from using this wise, ancient, and ultimately credible archetypal system to help herself and her clients develop more compassion for their own and others' natures. The blend of astrology and psychology led her to significantly change her attitude toward her own triple-earth nature-which was no small feat.¿
Stacy has been a music person since childhood. She has played numerous instruments over the course of her life, starting with piano, and most recently, the drums. Whether listening to it or playing it, music has always been an integral part of her life. Nothing-besides dogs-makes her happier than when she gets to see her favorite bands perform live. She is a huge fan of meaningful connection and good communication, loves to travel with her husband, Jeremy, and has been known to make a game of Cards Against Humanity go on way too long.¿Visit Stacy's website at www.psychstrology.com to learn more about her book, programs, and services.
