Joseph Campbell (March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987)
This was the man who was inspired by Carl Jung and his archetypes.
Our subconscious minds are influencing us strongly enough that we keep wanting to hear the exact same story, over and over again. The use of Campbell’s work as a hidden structure in Hollywood screenwriting can be traced back to at least September 26, 1964, when Stanley Kubrick advised Arthur C. Clarke to study The Hero with a Thousand Faces while working on the screenplay for 2001. Clarke found Campbell’s book to be “very stimulating.”

Campbell’s stellium in Aries is totally Prodigal Son material, especially his Mars on the 7th House cusp, within 1 degree opposite Libra Rising. But his understanding and expression of the hero’s journey is definitely shown by the Sun/Mercury/Jupiter conjunction (all within 1 degree, too.) The T-squares involving these planets and Uranus and Neptune demonstrate the quickness of his mind, and the mysteries he uncovered. The 10th House Moon was trine as well, which meant he would be popular the world over. And the Grand Trine involving Saturn, Pluto and the Ascendant meant that he was easily able to see the truth behind the myths and legends. The final piece of his personal puzzle was the trine connecting Venus and Neptune: he loved mysteries.
