SUCCULENT EMOTION

Libra Horoscope for Week of May 17, 2007:

"There can be no transformation of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion," wrote psychologist Carl Jung. That should be your motto in the coming week, Libra. Clear thinking and impeccable logic will not be sufficient to guide you to your next great adventure. You need the driving force of succulent emotion rising up in your solar plexus, the lush power of raw sensitivity piercing your heart. Feel as deep as you dare.

No needed logic? Awesome!

My word of the week is "incubation."

Lu . . . what in God's name are you incubating??? Should we be concerned?

I'm a Pisces, so I'm incubating, too. I'm all about impatience lately, so I was pretty annoyed when I found out.

I hope it's something good.

Of course, Jung's typology posed "thinking" vs. "judgment" ([emotional] valuing), and "intuition" vs. "perception." In sum, he covered all bases. And yet you're right that "feeling tone" was a key criterion for his dream interpretation; and he was much more a "feeler/emotionalist" than, say, Freud. . . . It's also interesting, in terms of your blog, that Jung was sympathetic towards astrology ("metaphorically," at least) in some of his later writings. In sum, his greatest contribution was, au fond, telling Freud et al. that "there are more things in heaven and earth . . . than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Mr. Logical f@#$ing Positivists."

Where are you, Artichoke Heart?? I am worried, what with the throat infection and then the silence. We miss you! Let us know you are okay.

Dr. M! Sorry to make you worry . . . I have been, um, a bit, shall we say, distracted? Also, I spent the last week reading/teaching at a workshop in upstate New York.
