Miguel Ministro – Wait For Me
This pic is amazing but it makes me anxious and i don’t know why. What do you guys think?
You know how Jung and Co talk about every woman having an Animus (and men having an Anima) that is an internal archetype. It is what you project onto lovers or crush-objects, it can seduce and betray you but if you’re psychologically whole, you have a fantastic relationship with your Animus/Anima. This then leeches out into everyday “real” life & voila excellent relationships etc.
People with those awful sort of full on obsessive crushes are said to strongly projecting their Animus/Anima onto an outsider, seeing only what they want to see. Really, it’s all about their own unlived masculine/feminine attributes. Hideously shrill men or women who behave like grotty guys are said to be in Animus/Anima “possession.
You can measure the quality of your relationship to your Animus/Anima by checking out how he/she appears in your dreams. If you are gay, the Animus/Anima is still the opposite sex to you. If you’re a female it is like your male qualities and vice versa.
So maybe that’s why this picture freaks me out…? Because she is trying to keep up with this larger than life, magical Animus dude but who know where he is leading her. And do you have strong Animus/Anima dreams? It’s always like you’re in a relationship with the character because you are, right?
Some say the Animus is your Sun or Mars and that the Anima is your Moon or Venus. Liz Greene, the Jungian astrologer is massively brilliant on all this stuff, though her actual writing style can be a bit dour for my Mercury in Aries taste. Does anyone want to Jung out with me here?
