C.G. Jung (1875-1961) described the timeless concept of archetypes, which was already used in ancient times by Plato or Pythagoras, as the “collective unconscious”. He says: “These patterns function similarly to instincts, but refer to the spiritual life of man. They can be found as structurally universal, formally varying pictorial schemata throughout the world.”
Sounds difficult, but is very easy to understand. Since everything is all in all, all archetypes are present both in the macrocosm universe and in the human microcosm. In Africa, just as in Wuppertal, in Spain as in Novosibirsk. Archetypes are the basic building blocks of all existence everywhere, including human existence.
And beside this collective unconscious there is the individual unconscious, which slumbers in each individual until it is illuminated with consciousness.
The archetypes are named after the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Moon, Pluto, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the Sun. They only give the archetypes their name, which is purely symbolic.
If we resonate with our archetypes while observing and vibrating the cosmic colours, we activate conscious and above all unconscious parts of our being and our personality at the same time.
Here is a list of the most important characteristics of the different archetypes:
