As The Red Book nears conclusion, Satya & Carol explore the second half of "The Magician." Satya reflects on the origins of this podcast and its synchronistic ending with the release of The Black Books. Carol reflects on the beginnings of Jung's journey with the horoscope of October 13th, 1913, highlighting the explosive energy of Jupiter in both our time and Jung's.
Carol explores the image of the serpent as woman and looks to Michelangelo's Adam, Eve and The Serpent in the Sistine Chapel.
Satya highlights a shift in Jung's tone from surrender and query to enchantment and assertion. She relates Toni Wolff to Salomé, then quotes from the recently released Black Books, illustrating the influence of Toni Wolff on Jung, and Jung's need to make her "go away."
The episode concludes with a discussion of feminism in Switzerland. Next week: a dive into Scrutinies.
