In this article I propose and investigate the use of the astrological birth chart as another ‘take’ on the underlying/organising myth, or ‘childhood dream’, of an organisation, using as an example the chart of the founding meeting of the Research Society of Process Oriented Psychology (RSPOP). Connections between this chart and those of some of the significant figures in the lineage of the organisation are highlighted and their significance explored. Some significant ‘showings’ of the childhood dream in the organisation are connected with appropriate symbolism in this birth chart. The chart is shown to be relevant in giving a new perspective on understanding the development and growth of the organisation through time, thus showing the horoscope’s potential for understanding, managing and even ‘healing’ organisations.
