Astrology has given me a way to access my subconscious.
A doorway into the realm where archetypes and dream images dwell,
the place where the lens through which I view my world
is either warped, or polished.
Pure intellect alone could not have given me entry into that world,
for shaman like, I have journeyed into that realm,
only to have lost my visions on the threshold of consciousness.
Astrology as a symbolic language enables me
to carry my discoveries safely back,
so that my mind can then set about interpreting the images
that are my messages to myself.
"No man remains quite what he was when he recognizes himself."
- Thomas Mann
