Archetypal Correspondence

What is an archetype and how do they correspond to life and other things? Better yet, why are the extract bottles different colors with days of the week on them?

The evolution of western thought from Plato on has grappled with that previous question in its search for lasting threads of meaning throughout the halls of time. Although there are many ways to describe these concepts or energies, one of the simplest ways would be that archetypes are universal forces. Ones that affect matter and psyche. Behavioral patterns throughout all dimensions influenced by these overarching characteristics. As if an all pervading sentience was conducting the mixture of influences on every scale. A way of grouping the cosmic tendencies of natures flow.

Primordial instincts, Transcendent first principles, Gods or basic constituents of the psyche; These are some of the basic descriptions given to archetypes by well known figures in history Like Jung, Freud, and Plato. 

Astrology seems to be supported by Jungian and Platonic philosophy here. Which naturally ties in given the archetypes are planetary of conceptual origin. So understanding these forces can not only gain an individual the insight into what is in their life and why, but what could be, due to their archetypal potentials. Your birth chart is a great way to familiarize yourself with the archetypal forces that guide your tendencies in life and experience. In modern Astrology there are 10 planetary archetypes, but Mushroomlife only focuses on the 7 classical archetypes that were correspondent to the visible planets in ancient times. Ones observed with the naked eye for eons.

Each one of these classical planetary archetypes corresponds to a day of the week as well. Furthermore hours in the day, as well as minutes in the hour and seconds in each minute. 

Taking a closer look at each of the 7 we can see and feel a theme arise in the character of each archetypal influence in whatever kingdom we may be talking about. Be that herbal, mineral, metal, animal, celestial, and internal.
