The buried, unconscious elements of the human psyche; everything except the Ego and the Persona.
A Jungian archetype, embodying the hidden "dark" side of the Self, i.e., the unconscious. Its opposite is the Persona, the image of the public self that one presents to the world, or one's conscious sense of the self (the ego). Part of the hero's challenge involves reconciling this opposition and coming to terms with the repressed unconscious side of the Self. Campbell uses the example of Luke Skywalker's ultimate atonement with Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back.
Jung's term for all the repudiated traits of personality which we consciously reject about ourselves and therefore ignore of. Also known as the Personal Unconscious.

In my column, The Low-Down on the Far-Out, I occasionally refer to something called the Shadow, especially when talking about Mercury Retrograde. The Shadow refers to the area of the zodiac where a planet goes retrograde (appears to go backward). The planet "retraces its steps," so to speak, and appears to travel through that area 3 times: first direct, then retrograde (backwards), then direct again. (See diagram below.) This usually refers to the transit ing planets (in real time), not to your natal planets (in your natal chart). If a planet in the Shadow makes an aspect to your natal chart during this time, you will have three passes of that transit. This means there is more to the situations happening during that time than what you may see on the surface. Those situations will evolve during the time that planet is in the Shadow. See also: Direct, Retrograde, Stationary, Transit. See also the article series on Retrograde Planets, including one article specifically on the Shadow and Stations.
something existing in perception only; "a ghostly apparition at midnight"
a premonition of something adverse; "a shadow over his happiness"
an indication that something has been present; "there wasn't a trace of evidence for the claim"; "a tincture of condescension"
Shadow is that which Amber creates, which seems real, which comes in infinite profusion, but which is not real. Everywhere between Amber and the Courts of Chaos is Shadow. Worlds of fantasy, dotted with faerie forests and orcish castles. Worlds of science fiction, bristling with technology, spacecraft and maybe even Bio-Implants. Worlds like Earth, but variants based on different histories; or like Earth, but inhabited by different creatures; or like Earth, but of a different age. Amberites can walk to any Shadow that they can imagine, and have it be exactly the world of their dreams.

Shadow is most often applied to inset photos and text to make them appear to stand above the paper or give them additional contrast to set them apart from the background image.
Use the Shadow effect to emphasize text. It produces a drop-shadow behind the text.
3D effect created by illustration programs creating the illusion that text or graphic object is standing vertically and illuminated from the top or side, creating a background below and behind it.
(1) Obscurity within the area or space from which direct electromagnetic radiation from a source is excluded by an interposed opaque body. (2) radar: A no-return area extending in range from an object that is elevated above its surroundings; the object obstructs the radar beam, preventing illumination of the area behind it. As the name implies radar shadows are analogous to shadows caused by visible light.
In radar, an azimuth sector with no echoes because the transmitted signal is masked by local prominences such as hills or buildings.
A dead spot (minimum radiation) caused by the physical obstruction of transmitted waves by a feed horn.
