In my course Astro Brand Alchemy, I'll show you how to use the information within your astrology chart and tie it into your unique-to-you brand archetype so you will be able to turn your curious prospects into confident buyers that are in alignment to your soul’s purpose.
My wish for you is to come away with a more profound sense of who your ideal clients are, what they need from you, how to communicate effectively with them and have all of this feel like a natural extension of who you are by understanding who your primary brand archetype is.
What Are The Archetypes?
Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology. He used the concept of archetypes in his theory of the human psyche. Jung believed that universal, mythic characters— archetypes—reside within the collective unconscious of people the world over. Often he would find out what his client's astrological signs were and then used that information to tie them into these 12 archetypes to get better insight into his clients, and that’s what we’re going to do.
The archetypes that Jung coined correlate to the 12 Zodiac signs. Your brand primary and secondary archetypes will allow you to speak to your dream client’s needs, pain point points and desires in a way that doesn’t leave you feeling like a smarmy salesman.
Clients tend to choose brands based on emotions rather than logic; the more emotional intelligence your brand has, the better you’ll do with converting your prospects into clients. Emotional branding then is creating an emotional connection to one company that separates it from the rest, building brand loyalty over time. And that’s why there’s beauty in using these archetypes determined by your natal chart. Combining these two parts of the puzzle means you won’t need to beg people to do business with you. You’ll be drawing your dream clients to you organically.
