We are in the early stages of a collective inflammatory condition called Trumpitis. Many of us, American or not, are annoyed, angry, afraid, overwhelmed, and deeply saddened by the actions of our new president.

Trumpitis: The Yin and Yang of Healing Through Tyranny - Donald Trump as Uncle Sam

I think it’s a good sign that we’re up-in-arms about all this; I appreciate what my friends and loved ones have to say, and how they feel. I am heartened that so many people are taking an interest. I also think we will settle down some, in a good way, to find solutions to the symptoms of Trumpitis, and to channel our upset and worry into action.

I think to some degree, what we are witnessing now by the election of Donald Trump is our collective shadow, our inner darkness becoming visible and outwardly active. The archetype of the Yang is in our face now: the scary and ruthless father figure, the tyrannical and malevolent dictator, the fundamentalist and closed-minded masculine. So is the desecration of the feminine principle: nurturing, openness, welcome, fertility, and safety. We are appalled by what we see, as we should be. And, if we have sat through any long nights with our own shadow, and come out the other end, I think we will be better prepared to deal with the shadow of masculine tyranny now emerging in the White House.
