“All that has black sounds has duende.”

Manuel Torre, Flamenco virtuoso.

The darkest aspects of experience are ruled by the heavies of the zodiac, Saturn and Pluto, and within them is gold. The metaphor of duende, a term used by the poet Federico Garcia Lorca to describe artistry empowered by the awareness of death, provides the framework as Claudia Bader explores different depths of the Saturn and Pluto archetypes and how they manifest in human life.

Claudia will begin with a discussion of the psychodynamics of the color black (associated with both Saturn and Pluto) and will integrate Jungian alchemical models with Freudian and neo-Freudian approaches. She will then apply their different views to themes of envy, death, and liberation and how these themes can be seen in the astrological chart. Claudia will also show the healing potential of integrating their challenges.

 

;

Seeking the duende, there is neither map nor discipline. We only know it burns the blood like powdered glass, that it exhausts, rejects all the sweet geometry we understand, that it shatters styles and makes Goya, master of the greys, silvers and pinks of the finest English art, paint with his knees and fists in terrible bitumen blacks, or strips Mossèn Cinto Verdaguer stark naked in the cold of the Pyrenees, or sends Jorge Manrique to wait for death in the wastes of Ocaña, or clothes Rimbaud’s delicate body in a saltimbanque’s costume, or gives the Comte de Lautréamont the eyes of a dead fish, at dawn, on the boulevard. -- Garcia Lorca. The Theory and Play of Duende
