American Nekyia, Part Two — Edward F. Edinger
In the interlude following his meeting with Queequeg and prior to his signing on the ship, Ishmael attends the whalemen's chapel and hears a dramatic sermon on Jonah. This sermon presents us with the voyage of Jonah as an analogy to the coming voyage of Ishmael. We must therefore consider the psychological meaning of the Jonah story as well as the general archetypal motif of which it is a particular example.…

Birth Chart of the C.G. Jung Center — Pseudo-Scorpitarius

As has been known since ancient times, there is a high probability of synchronistic connections between the pattern in the sky and the quality of the moment it represents.
