  • Author Karen Hamaker-Zondag

    Karen Hamaker-Zondag is the author of fifteen books, including The Twelfth House and Tarot as a Way of Life. She is a recipient of the 1998 Regulus Award for Education from the UAC, founder two schools: Stichting Achernar, an astrological school; and Stichting Odrerir, a school of Jungian Psychology. With her husband Hans, in 1990, she started Symbolon, a successful quarterly astrological journal. Karen lives near Amsterdam with her husband and two children.

An examination of the traditional wisdom of astrology combined in the light of Jungian psycholgy shows the horoscope to be an accurate picture of the psychic structure and a key to selfknowledge and personal growth. Beginning with a lucid analysis of Jung’s terminology, including the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the theory of synchronicity, Dr. HamakerZondag explores in depth the striking correspondences between Jung’s theory and psychological types and the tradtional elements. She shows how the elements of astrology relate to the psychological types, and discusses the zodiac as a path of life. Psychological Astrology is a must for students since the author elucidates the houses and their structure and provides an enlightening discussion of the planets as they symbolize basic human drives. First published as AstroPsychology, this edition has been revised and updated.
