Swiss psychiatrist and author, noted as being an outstanding influence in the development of the theory and practice of analytical psychiatry, synchronicity, introvert-extrovert types, individuation and the personal-collective unconscious.
Jung's father was a Swiss country parson and his mother a typical house frau. Jung's difficulty with his father was stated to be his perception of his spiritual dishonesty, finding it difficult to believe what his dad had to say. Jung saw his mother as having a hearty animal warmth and great sense of humor. Her personality was "unexpectedly powerful…possess of unassailable authority." He loved nature and after a visit to Lake Constance with his mother, decided he must live near water. He loved playing with bricks as a child and developed an interest in plants, animals, and stones.
Throughout his life, Jung found solace and peace from sculpting, woodcarving, building towers such as his beloved Bollingen, or canalizing brooks. He once dreamt Pluto was a sculptor. At age eight he recalled his mother as being particularly mysterious and frightening to him, envisioning one night, a luminous shape from her door "…whose head detached and floated along in front of it like a little Moon." Also during this time, he carved a small 2" mannequin with block top coat, hat and shiny boots, placed it in a pencil box with a stone from the Rhine. He hid the box in the attic and felt he must keep its existence and location a secret. Around age nine-ten, he became aware that God's image was not only reflected in man, but in all of nature, and that God and man alike are reflected through the cosmos. At age 12, he developed fainting spells which kept him out of school. He dreamt for hours, was out in nature, drew, "but above all...was able to plunge into the world of the mysterious." Overhearing his father's talk of financial concerns around Carl's illness, Jung realized on some level he could overcome the fainting spells and was able to return to school. Shortly after this, on a long walk to school, he experienced an intense moment of knowing himself: "Previously, I had existed…everything had merely happened to me. Now, I happened to myself. Now I knew: I am myself now, now I exist."
In 1898, Jung decided to pursue a career in psychiatry. His career began in earnest when in 1903 he picked up Sigmund Freud's "The Interpretation of Dreams," realizing how Freud's work linked up with his own ideas. The initial correspondence and friendship with Freud began in 1906. He met Freud 3/03/1907, they collaborated on some work but by 1909 he broke from Freud to place greater emphasis on the growth of mankind by archetypal vital forces in the individual. During this period Jung had a decisive dream of being in a two-story house. As he explored it, each floor and room reflected historical eras or from the collective unconscious. The final break with Freud occurred in 1912.
During 1912-13, he had numerous visions. Jung stated in his autobiography, "Memories, Dreams, and Reflections" that all of his creative work came from these initial visions, fantasies and dreams. He wrote the mysterious "Septem Sermones ad Mortuos (Seven Sermons to the Dead)" in 1916. Jung had a successful practice and was a much-sought after mentor to countless devotees of his work.
An advocate of the use of astrology, Jung wrote in his memorial address, In Memory of Richard Wilhelm, "Astrology would be a large scale example of synchronism, if it had at its disposal thoroughly tested findings…In other words, whatever is born or done this moment of time, has the qualities of this moment of time." In Jung's book, "Synchronicity," he published a study of 483 pairs of couples, seeking to find a possibility of the validity that there is a causal connection between the planets and psycho-physiological disposition.
Controversy emerged which questioned Jung's political sympathies during the Hitler era. Countering the anti-Semitic statements that were attributed to him, Jung later said that Hitler had placed him on a list of enemies to be assassinated and that editors were responsible for the ambiguity of his printed words. Between 1938 and 1956, his most scholarly works were written. Jung was a Professor at the University of Basel in 1943.
He married Emma Rauschenback 2/14/1903. They had four girls and one boy. Daughter Gret Baumann-Jung became an astrologer, presenting a paper on the horoscope of her father before the Psychological Club in Zurich, October 1974. It is well documented that Jung lived in a love triangle between his wife and Toni Wolff, both of whom became practicing analysts. Toni died at age 64 of a heart attack. Emma died two years later, in 1955. Ruth Bailey, an Englishwoman and friend of 35 years became his housekeeper and companion after Emma died. Jung had numerous affairs during his life.
He died 6/06/1961.

Time given by his daughter Gret Baumann in the (1988) translated "Carl Gustav Jung: Leben, Werk, Wirkung," by Gerhard Wehr, 1985, Kosel-Verlag and Co, Munich, translated 1987 by Shambhala Publications. (7:32 PM, given as LMT rather than Berne time, to put the Sun on the DESC. But this is wrongly calculated. To put the Sun on the Decendant, 19:29 Berne Time is correct. (atr))
AJA 9/1962, "He told a member of the association that he was born when the last rays of the setting sun lit the room." From then on, the definition of sunset became the issue. Jim Eshelman calculated sunset for the moment that the upper limb of the sun crossed the astronomical horizon, corrected for refraction but neglecting parallax as 7:41 PM LMT. (Twilight at that date and latitude ended at 9:38 PM LMT)
In AQ 6/1964, Delphia gave 7:37 PM, Thurgen, Switzerland "from him." AQ Summer/1951 gives 8:45 PM, Kesswil "from him." AQ Fall/1954, Dr. Unger gives 7:24 PM, near Zurich. AQ Fall/1961 gives 7:30 PM, Bale, Switzerland. R.H. Oliver quotes M. Morrell of the AA staff for 7:20 PM, Berne time, Zurich "from New York Jungian analysts, quoting his daughter."
