Tomasz Lange replied to Thom F. Cavalli, Ph.D.'s discussion A Contrarian's Question
"Ed, I couldn't agree more. In order not to get carried away by moralistic judgements here (and who's  strong enough to resist the temptation?) we should constantly be drawing a fine line between Jung's work and his so-called "biography". As for the…"

Tomasz Lange replied to Thom F. Cavalli, Ph.D.'s discussion Melancholia
"Great review!
I found the movie really disturbing in many ways. What could be interesting from an astrological viewpoint, for example, is that melancholia itself, traditionally placed in the Saturnian kingdom, in Von Trier's vision gradually seems…"

"Wish I had more time to participate in the discussions here, particularly on Pluto. But I have a one-month old baby at home and as a moon-mars lady she's been giving us a hell of a time so far. Looking forward to reading more about archetypal…"

"Judith, mamy thanks for the comment. First of all, let me tell you your astrological knowledge far exceeds mine :) Secondly, I haven't seen Hillman's DVD but I do have his book on Puer and Senex so I felt as if you were reading my mind then rather…"

"Judith, many thanks for your invitation! One can hardly feel ligthness in one's life with the conjunction of moon i pluto in the natal chart, can they? :)
Speaking of lightness...I was wondering if any of you have noticed any relation between the…"

Tomasz Lange replied to Dorene Mahoney's discussion Want insight into a particular image or theme? Post it here for the group! in The Twilight Zone--Dreamwork
"Genevieve,
the dream clearly shows a "death experience" that your soul is undergoing. 'Holding your breath" and escaping on land could mean you're resisting your engagement in it but it may just as well be an indication that the renewal phase has…"

"Thank you very much, Dorene. I don't know exactly why but I feel deeply moved by your interpretation. It's curious you used the word 'lethargy' which I hadn't myself and the dream does seem to show an almost "cosmically" static image. I'm not sure…"

"Dorene, that's a great idea. I've been having this recurrent dream of a barn with sad or injured animals inside. It's dark in there with thin rays of light coming from the outside through a small window. There are no people there, just the animals:…"

Tomasz Lange left a comment on ARCHIVED—Threads of Thought
"To tell you the truth, I don't know cause I haven't read it. It was just to point out that relations between Derrida and Hillman have been studied for some time now and it's extremely unlikely that Hillman himself is unaware of that."

you mentioned interviews with Hillman. Do you possibly know of any that were put on video?"

"Dorene, I haven't read the book. I'll check it out, big thanks. What you're saying about DT sounds really encouraging. I wonder if I may ask you a bit personal question? How old were you when your own "midlife crisis" started? I was 35. Perfect…"

  • Tomasz, Well congratulations on the birth of your little cherub..!I love your characterization of  her Moon-mars configuration. All that passion in the arms of Luna!  Or, perhaps it is the other way around. All that feeling held in the passionate arms of Mars. She'll need healthy outlets for both her angry feelings and her passionate nature, along with reassurance that appropriate expressions of both are healthy.  Check back in when you've had some sleep. Best Regards, Judie Harte
  • Thank you for your friendship!
  • Thomas, YES! Thanks so much for the comment. I don't know if you saw it but in a recent thread I said that if Neptune does not get off of my Sun, I might not make it in this life! They've been in a very potent conjunction all last year, probably the year before, and according to my annual astro update just last week, will continue to dance their way with me for the next two years at least. GAH! Not that I need any help in the illusion/delusion/addiction-prone areas, with a 12th house Sun (Aquarius), along with Moon conjunct Mercury also in that 12th house! Pisces rising, needless to say, and Neptune conjunct Jupiter in 8th house of Scorpio. Pluto is hanging out in Virgo in the 6th. Serve or Suffer!


    As a matter of fact, my astrologer had just returned from Hawaii where she had a wonderful conference with Richard Tarnas, so we were able to integrate that nicely in the two hours. Out of all of this was planted the seed about my own deep "longing" for union, which I concretize (as M. Woodman would say) into people, substances and experiences. I decided that "The Legacy of My Longing" would be a good first book title and as a result, I am committed to moving 27 years' worth of my dreams onto a blog to really deepen into this whole dynamic that I carry so very intensely. I've suspected all along I would one day work directly with addicts in some way, and I am fascinated by the dreams of addicts, so....yes. It all begins to weave so nicely, does it not? Many thanks again. I'm going to move this over to that thread if you don't mind in hopes others will jump in?

  • I'm so glad to have you in The Twilight Zone, Tomasz! Is there a particular style of dream work that most appeals to you? Let's get some meaty conversations going, okay? I hope you'll share your thoughts!
  • Welcome Tomasz,

    Hillman has caught many a thinker of the post-Jungian archetypal focus. I have found his writings challenging in that seeing the change of focus and priority as an interesting corrective/focusing of Jung's work that at times can frustrate those who need a few things "pinned down." Hope you find much to enjoy on the site.

  • Hi Tomasz. Welcome to the online Depth Psych community. I, too, am fascinated by Hillman's work- finding myself variously mystified and delighted by the workings of his brain and the the powerful contributions he has made regarding his perspective of how the archetypes work (and work on us). So glad to have you here, and I hope you will share some links or resources to work that you like--or even some of your own. Looking forward to seeing you around this space.
