From the Publisher
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.
