Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) was one of the foremost Swiss psychiatrists. He popularised ideas of synchronicity, archetypes, and the collective unconcious, forming analytic psychology. He was a pioneer in the field of individuation ('self-actualization') and dream analysis. His work has influenced psychiatry and studies in many other fields since, including literature analysis.
The following timeline draws on many sources.
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 in which we are born. - C.G.Jung
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. Therefore we have to conclude that what we call psychological motives are in a way identical with star positions . . . We must form a peculiar hypothesis. This hypothesis says that the dynamics of our psyche is not just identical with the position of the stars . . . better to assume that it is a phenomenon of time - Carl G. Jung in 1929
Obviously astrology has much to offer psychology, but what the latter can offer its elder sister is less evident. So far as I judge, it would seem to me advantageous for astrology to take the existence of psychology into account, above all the psychology of the personality and of the unconscious. - Carl G. Jung
While studying astrology I have applied it to concrete cases many times. ... The experiment is most suggestive to a versatile mind, unreliable in the hands of the unimaginative, and dangerous in the hands of a fool, as those intuitive methods always are. . . . It is an apt tool only when used intelligently. - C. G. Jung: Letters, volume 2, 1951-1961, pages 463-464, letter to Robert L. Kroon, 15 November 1958.
