THE CALLING: Finding Your True Vocation Using Archetypal Astrology

The calling is not necessarily our job, career, or a “job description” that has been identified by society.  It is an inner sense of what we are called to do to fulfill our destiny.  The soul of each of us is given a unique image or pattern of who we are that we are meant to manifest on this earth.   These universal patterns or archetypal themes are revealed in the stories of the ancient Greek and Roman gods and goddesses.  Most of the time we are not aware of how these archetypal themes can dominate our psyche both in positive and negative ways.  We will explore how to bring these themes into consciousness and access the energy of these archetypes to create a vocation that fits our particular destiny. In this presentation, you will learn a three-step process for finding your true calling using astrology and myth.

Janet Kane is a professional consulting astrologer and uses archetypes found in literature, myths, fairy tales, and film in her consultations, courses, and workshops. She has taught at Mount Vernon College, The Jung Society of Washington, The Friends Wellspring Conference, and Washington College in Chestertown, MD. She is also the founder of the Wisewoman Forum in Washington, D.C. She publishes a free, on-line newsletter, Mythic Zodiac. You can contact her via her blog at http://www.mythiczodiac.com or contact her at janetkane56@gmail.com


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.
