How Jung’s Approach to Astrology Helps Everyone Get Along Better than Most Personality Profiles – No Kidding
In the mid-20th Century, humans understanding each other through personality profiles caught on. And we did work and play better together.
What few of us realized, though, was that the original personality profile was more sophisticated and much older that what appeared in the 20th Century. It was what famed psychologist Carl Jung used to work successfully with hundreds of clients: psychological astrology.
As a result, many practicing psychologists now use astrology as a personality profile. And many astrologers use a psychological approach. Using the system this way has helped thousands of people understand themselves better.
For parents, this means that they can understand themselves and their children better – thus parenting more effectively and with greater understanding.
Let’s face it: parenting these days is hard enough without a personality-map. Since there is a proven one available, let’s use it to help our children realize who they are more fully.
