Laura Tadd PhD- Psychological Astrologer
As a spiritually oriented, psychological astrologer, Dr. Laura Tadd loves supporting people as they learn to live an authentic life, recognizing their resiliency, power, and sovereignty. Having been exposed to numerous counseling modalities, Laura has found an astrological worldview to be a uniquely effective and astute methodology.
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 be active participants in their healing and actualize their potential. Rather than focus on prediction, Laura’s work emphasizes healing and personal growth.
Astrology has been a part of Laura’s life since infancy. So much so her astrology chart hung above her crib. Yet, despite this early exposure, it was not until her mid 20’s her passion for astrology took hold. While attending Antioch University, Santa Barbara, she joined a women’s group that looked to astrology to aid its members in understanding their lives’ ups and downs. Attending these weekly gatherings proved to be a fortuitous decision, as she spent the next 18-months doing a deep dive into 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 evident she needed to return to graduate school to broaden and deepen her work. Exploring the lived experiences of astrologers in the 21st century, she received a PhD in Human Science from Saybrook University in 2014.
Today Laura works as an astrological counselor, teacher, and lecturer both in-person and remotely. She is a Board member of the International Association for Ethics in Astrology (IAEA). She has served on the Steering Committee of the Association for Astrological Networking (AFAN), the Washington State Astrological Association (WSAA) board, and the Planning Committee for United Astrology Conference (UAC) 2018. She writes for The Mountain Astrologer, Celestial Vibes, Tarot.com and is a monthly panelist on the radio show/podcast Talk Cosmos.
