Conlon, Andrea – The Marriage of Astrology & Psychotherapy

How does the lens of astrology integrate with psychotherapy? On one hand, it seems like a marriage made in heaven. The birthchart deepens awareness of the psyche and facilitates dialog on areas of difficulties, strengths, and resources. From another perspective, astrology and psychotherapy seem to be at cross purposes. How might astrology aid or impede the process of psychotherapy? I will compare the single session model of astrological readings with an ongoing psychotherapy relationship. Then I will present several case illustrations of how this integration works in my practice.
