Others, like Atlas, carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. As a social scientist, Dr. Laura Tadd has found that an astrological perspective to be unequaled as a tool for healing from the past, access our potential and lead fulfilling lives. As the psychiatrist, Carl Jung once wrote to the venerable Indian astrologer B.V. Raman:
“I very often found that astrological data elucidated certain points, which I otherwise would have been unable to understand.”
It is with compassion and humor, Laura provides insight and tools to help her clients actualize their potential. On the whole, her work focuses more on healing and personal growth than on prediction.
As the daughter of counterculture-clairvoyant parents’, astrology was a part of Laura’s life even as an infant, with her astrology chart hanging above her crib. Despite this early exposure, it was not until her mid 20’s that her passion for it took hold.
While attending Antioch University, Santa Barbara, she joined a local women’s group that used astrology as a tool for its members to understand their lives. Attending these weekly meetings proved to be a fortuitous decision, as she would spend the next year studying astrology. After earning a certificate in Psychological Astrology as a Professional Astrologer, from Astrological Counseling Seminars (ACS), Laura began working as a consulting astrologer. As her astrological work developed, it became clear that to broaden her outreach she needed to return to school. Enrolling in graduate school, she ultimately received a Ph.D. in Human Science from Saybrook University.
