CG Jung (Leo)
CG Jung: so Jung had a reputation for a hot temper—he was known to turn on people and be very fierce at one moment then relax the next. Aniela Jaffé, a Jewish-Swiss analyst and co-worker with Jung, said Jung's wife balanced him because she was a person, “…who made an impression of an inner calm, which beautifully compensated for CG Jung’s often volcanic temper.” This fits with Jung’s ruler of the Ascendant (Uranus). These people are hot-tempered and good at meeting people, they often become scholars and need lots of free space (Jung was an independent scholar who worked with many clients over the years).
Jung had Uranus in the 7th House—these people play important social roles, as he did as the founder of a branch of psychoanalysis. There are often problems in their marriage (Jung cheated on his wife with his patients). Indeed, Jung had Venus in the 6th House—and these people tend to have love affairs or romances in the workplace.
His Uranus position also points to instability in marriage and a desire for independence within it, sometimes it means divorce; and he also had Uranus in Leo—difficulty being loyal to their partner. Meanwhile, his Lunar Nodes point to a strong sexuality that could be abused; and this chimes with his Mars in Sagittarius—a big libido “when they want sex, they want a lot of it and they want it right now”.
Further, Jung had Jupiter in the 8th House—and these people often gain their money from their marriage, and that is exactly the case with Jung (elsewhere in his chart, the alignments show poor ability in financial matters; and it seems Jung did rely on his wife’s fortune to a great extent—he wasn't great with money).
People with Uranus in the 7th House also tend to arouse resentment, passion, or adoration—which, again, fits Jung (due to his position as the founder of a school of psychoanalysis); it's often the case people with adore him as a genius, or regard him as a woo-woo wacko.
Jung had his Moon in the 3rd House, and this indicates an excellent scholar (complements Uranus), but scholars in particular of history and archeology—of course, Jung’s scholarly work is mostly about the history of symbolism and alchemy; so it fits right in with this position. These people have “an emotional desire for intellectual growth”—and this fits with Jung's idea of psychology as constant growth (individuation). These people are known as dreamers, and Jung's work centres on the importance of dreams and being a “dreamer of the day”.
With Neptune in Taurus, Jung had a “sensual nature and visionary abilities”—these people find liberation through art; and, indeed, Jung’s paintings and mandalas are central to his spiritual development and his psychoanalytical school.
He had Pluto in the 3rd House, and these people are deep thinkers who understand the deeper meaning of things—such as, in Jung’s case, esoteric or archetypal ideas (the unconscious, the depths). These people often have “strong, controversial opinions” that they keep silent about. Jung had unorthodox views on Christianity and his famous Red Book of mystical theological musings, interspersed with his art, was only released in 2009.
Jung had Mercury in the 6th House, and that means occupations related to health and a desire to help other people—he was a trained psychiatrist, a medical doctor, and also founded a school of psychoanalysis. These people tend to be specialists—as Jung specialised in psychiatry and, eventually, psychoanalysis. He also had his Sun in the 6th House which means jobs that involve healthcare and a desire to help others, again particularly with specialisation in mind.
With his Lilith in Sagittarius, Jung was another one of these people, like HP Blavatsky and Crowley, who had a great interest in religion and spirituality and a desire to discover the truth about these areas and yet could never really believe in them—these people often radiate between fanaticism and atheism. In Jung’s case, he would never admit that what he did, really alchemy, was spiritual and insisted it was scientific—that the psyche is a “scientific reality” and that he had “verified” its existence. He could never make the move to the metaphysical.
Jung also had Lilith in the 9th House—these people are stimulated by foreign countries and travel; and Jung’s journeys to Africa proved decisive in the way he came to understand the unconscious as a primitive force in man (he was later inspired by trips to America).
With Uranus in Leo, Jung had a preference for new ways of acting and the promotion of unconventional views—these people often “resist their fathers”. In Jung's case, this could relate to his split with his “father” Freud. He also did think about topics, particularly religion and psychiatry, in unconventional ways.
This chimes with his Saturn in Aquarius, these people need a complex system of rules to govern their lives, but they are caught between conformism to established rules and the desire to set new rules—and so they often struggle against a system of rules someone else has created. In this case, it refers to Jung’s infamous split with Freud and the way he took Freud's idea, psychoanalysis, off in a new direction.
People with Saturn in Aquarius also find that they are compelled to free themselves of limitation through the examination of their past, so as to understand how the limitation in themselves came about—and that pretty much describes the process of psychoanalysis Jung advocated, introspective examination of the past to achieve self-actualisation in the present.
Additionally, with Jupiter in Libra, Jung was a person who made progress when he formed “ethical or religious” relationships, essentially the process of communion he shared with his clients. He also had Mercury in Cancer—these people find it easy to get on with any type of person, a useful attribute for a psychoanalyst.
Overall, Jung was a Leo—so he had a warm, knightly, and courtly self. His 1st House Ascendant was Aquarius—so his persona was distant, impersonal with a quirky intellect, as befits a physician and an analyst. He had his ruler of the 10th House (Jupiter) in the 8th House—it means people work with secrets and often in extreme conditions (the case histories of his clients, his esoteric investigations).
Jung's other alignments point to a philosophical demeanour, a traditional outlook at core (his investigations into esoteric traditions and basic conservatism), and a desire to set out his own system.
The chart accurately characterises Jung: a specialised doctor with a scholarly interest in archaic history and religious affairs, with a strong desire to develop through artistic explorations and a need to find self-development through examination of his past—a man who felt compelled to help people and who liked to be warm and generous, but who had a fierce temper that surfaced on occasion complemented with a vigorous libido that sometimes got him into trouble.
