In 2014, The King Returns. This trend can be traced to our need for the qualities embodied by the archetypal King, discussed frequently in mythology and psychoanalytic theory. These qualities include order, stability, and the presence of rational patterning. The archetype of the King also represents integrity, clarity and grace. Jungian psychoanalyst Robert Moore, tells us that the King archetype “stabilizes chaotic emotion and out-of-control behaviors. It gives stability and centeredness. It defends our own sense of inner order, and our own integrity of being and purpose.” The King reflects a way of being in the world; a way of being that is calm, assured, and firmly rooted in the collective wisdom of our global ancestry.
