My first astrology book was given to me by my aunt when I was fourteen years old. She was a world traveler and introduced me to metaphysics, taught me how to meditate, and gave me books on all the major religions to study. “They all say the same thing, but in different ways,” she said.
My mother is a psychologist, so there was never a shortage of books on the subject in the house. I was an avid reader of Freud and Jung throughout my teenage years (Persian translations, of course). Later, I studied English Literature at ATU and left Iran to continue my studies abroad.
Why Psychological & Evolutionary Astrology?
When I started working on my Ph.D. dissertation at EGS, I had already studied psychology and dream analysis for over a decade. I wanted to apply these theories to film, philosophy, and geometry. My extensive research took me to many corners, and this was when I discovered psychological astrology through the books of Dr. Liz Greene. Later, I enrolled in a program initiated by her at CPA, London. After two years of intensive study, I received a certificate in psychological astrology and started working with a small circle of clients. This gave me a chance to observe how the natal chart manifested in real life. I continued to explore various branches of astrology, including Vedic (Indian) astrology, and had an additional two years of private astrological and spiritual studies with Vic DiCara (Vraja Kishor).
About five years after my first exposure to psychological astrology, I discovered evolutionary astrology quite accidentally (well, Pluto was transiting opposite my natal Moon then, so it was not quite “accidental”). I immersed myself in these new teachings and eventually realized that this approach could beautifully complement the psychological approach. Therefore, in my own practice, I synthesize what I have learned using both of these perspectives.
Among the writers and teachers to whom I am indebted, I would like to especially acknowledge the works of Jeffrey Wolf Green (“Evolutionary Astrology”), Mark Jones (“Psychosynthesis”), and Dr. Glenn Perry (“Astro Psychology”), whose teachings have certainly enriched my view of the cosmos and our place in it.
At the moment, I spend most of my time writing, teaching customized astrology classes, and offering consultations to clients from around the world, and of course, as an eternal student of astrology, I learn something new almost every day from the sweet souls whose paths cross mine, as planned by the cosmic wisdom.
It is a pleasure to be of service to you!
