Prometheus the Awakener

by Richard Tarnas

Spring | May 1, 1998 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
Tarnas focuses on Uranus, the first planet discovered by telescope, as entry into the depth of astrology, showing how personal biography & collective history can be linked to planetary movements. Unlike the planets named by the ancients, Uranus shares little with its mythical namesake, but rather demonstrates a remarkable coherence with the mythic Prometheus. This book explores this coherence by examining the historical period of the planet's discovery in 1781, the birth charts of major cultural figures with prominent Uranus & the Uranus transit cycles in the lives of such notables as Freud, Jung, Darwin & Oscar Wilde. Further, many paradigmatic Promethean events coincided with major Uranus alignments - the Bastille revolt & the fall of the Berlin Wall. An afterword discusses the Uranus-Neptune conjunction of present times, as well as the Uranus-Neptune cycle in history. "A brilliant study of dynamics of intellectual, cultural & sociopolitical breakthroughs, PROMETHEUS THE AWAKENER is itself a revolutionary & groundbreaking work...A major contribution to both depth psychology & astrology."--Stanislav Grof.
