Laura Tadd PhD- Psychological Astrologer
Laura loves supporting her clients to realize their resiliency and how to live an authentic life. Many people walk through life diminishing themselves. Others, like Atlas, carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. As a social scientist, Dr. Laura Tadd has found an astrological perspective to be unmatched 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.”
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 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 and a half 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 she needed to return to school to broaden her outreach. Enrolling in graduate school, she ultimately received a Ph.D. in Human Science from Saybrook University.
As an internationally known astrologer, Laura works in a consulting capacity with people around the world. She teaches and lectures on astrology in-person and virtually. In addition to blogging, her writing is found in The Mountain Astrologer, Celestial Vibes, and Tarot.com. As an active member of the astrological community, she has sat on the boards of regional and international astrology organizations and contributed to the organization of UAC 2018, the largest astrology conference in the world. Laura is a monthly guest on the radio show Talk Comoms, where she and other astrologers dissuss some of the current astrological happenings.
