Psychological Dimensions of Astrology
Winner: 2016 MA Dissertation Prize
Was the induction of the term 'psychological astrology' a linguistic misunderstanding? Were psychological characteristics introduced into astrology as late as in the 20th century? And do English-speaking and German-speaking astrologers mean the same thing when they speak about 'psychological astrology'?
This presentation will raise and discuss these questions and will analyse early 20th century astrology texts for their psychological qualities. Furthermore, this talk will question the reasonableness of the expression 'psychological astrology' by arguing that ancient, so-called 'traditional' astrology also has psychological dimensions. The use of German primary sources shall raise an interest in and awareness of astrological currents outside the English-speaking world.
