The archetypes of the psyche surround us in the cosmos and also offer a possible pathway for understanding our own integration process. In many ways, astrology bridges our current understanding with that which is still unconscious. In psychology, this tension between conscious and unconscious in attempting union is the transcendent function. This psychic and unpredictable process speaks to our evolution as a collective and individuals and therefore a transition between states and attitudes. It is also a self-regulated process and "irrational life process" as Jung describes it as our consciousness integrates in its own time without a formula or prediction of when something becomes aware.
