The difference between myth and archetype can be vast, and I’ll show you how to read between the lines with all 11 stories. Myth is used for social instruction, while archetype is the thread within the human psyche that is the story we’re actually living.
One example: Persephone’s myth seems to be about needing to be afraid of strangers and holding onto innocence because the world is hard – Hades snatches her to hell and forces her to marry him. The archetype is about learning to abduct ourselves into maturity when others might prefer that we stay innocent and helpless so they can define themselves as protectors and “mother/father knows best” types. We all have to grow up, and Persephone in your birth chart explains how, why, and when this process can be challenging … as well as how to learn to grow up intentionally without the drama of being sucked down into hell by some dangerous stranger.
PDF handouts to use in class covering the basics of each myth vs each archetype as well as the bodies and point in signs and houses will be included, making this class extremely valuable for adding these bodies and points into your chart work.
The videos will be broadcast live each Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm Pacific/9:30-10:30pm Eastern August 4, 11, 18, 25 and September 1. The videos will be available afterward, too.

Register by the end of Wednesday, July 8th and I’ll send you at no cost the PDF ebook of Living Myth: Exploring Archetypal Journeys (usually $7) or the paperback ($15.95 + $3.50 shipping). It covers most of the archetypes we’ll use in class, but it’s not an astrology book save for the last chapter, on Arjunsuri (20300). It’ll give you a head start on the difference between myth and archetype, preparing you to get into the astrology of the bodies – actually working with them in real, live charts.
