Carol Ferris, MA
Carol is a full-time consulting astrologer, teacher, and private tutor of astrology with four decades of experience. She completed her Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies at Marylhurst University. The title of her thesis, "The Sky's Body: Constellations and Medicine" reflects her ongoing interest in the nature-based medicine and governance thinking of the ancient Near East and Chinese philosophers and astrologers. Carol's work with the multivalent symbols of astrology is interwoven into work with dreams and active imagination. Over the years, Carol has seen these two frameworks -- astrological mapping and Jungian imagery -- as mutually beckoning guides to understanding how all life, in its exquisite specificity, rises from a unified field.
