Carl Jung's interest and involvement in the principles of astrology proved to be an important stage in the historical development of astrology.
Jung was recognized as one of the greatest thinkers of the century who fathered a personal vision of psychoanalysis.
We are born at a given moment, in a given place and,
like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born.
Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.
His interests also extended themselves to include paranormal faculties such as telepathy, precognition and clairvoyance.
Beyond this point, he began to hypothesize that causality was not the only principle operating in the universe.
The starry vault of heaven is in truth
the open book of cosmic projection.
- Carl Jung
With this idea in mind, he then introduced a new concept called synchronicity.
From this period in time until his death, he searched through various types of data to find examples of synchronous events which could not possibly have accrued by chance.
This research led him to conduct what would prove to be a controversial experiment. Jung complied astrological data which he used to complete a statistical study concerning married couples.
Nearly 500 marriages and approximately 1,000 horoscopes were included in his experiment.
These horoscope charts were paired off in various ways and comparisons made of the charts of individuals.
This included comparisons both with the spouses and with other members involved in the study.
The relative positions of the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mars of each partner were examined in the attempt to find out if there were any significant correlations.
During the study of horoscope charts of the married and unmarried couples, he discovered a number of fascinating correspondences.
Prior to this research, traditional astrology had determined that a correspondence signifying marriage was usually indicated in a relationship of the Sun and Moon.
This usually appeared when a comparison was made of the horoscope charts of spouses.
His statistical study resulted in a notably high significant tendency in the case of those married for the woman's Moon to be in conjunction (union) with the man's Sun.
The results proved statistically that the correlations in the study corresponded with astrological expectations.
With this study in mind, Jung argued that correspondences of this kind could not possibly be causally related and should, therefore, be accounted for in one way or another.
The puzzling thing is that there is really a curious coincidence between astrological and psychological facts, so that one can isolate time from the characteristics of an individual, and also, one can deduce characteristics from a certain time...
- Carl Jung
Both his interest in astrology and his evident belief in its reality inspired astrologers and helped develop both curiosity and attention in the subject.
