astro-healer-picMy name is Tina Rahimi. My first astrology book was given to me by my aunt when I was 14 years old. She was a world traveller and introduced me to metaphysics, taught me how to meditate, and gave me the books of all major religions to study. “They all say the same thing, but in different ways,” she said, and that became the summary of my worldview until now.

My mom is a psychologist, so there was never a lack of books on the subject in the house. I was an avid reader of Freud and Jung all my teen years. Later, I studied English Literature in one of the best universities in Iran (I was born and raised in Tehran), and as I was working on my Master’s thesis, I learned about the application of psychoanalytical theories in literature. At that point, I could look at my life as a story with a changing plotline, various characters and evolving motifs, all authored by myself.

When I started working on my PhD dissertation at EGS, I had already studied psychology and dream analysis for over a decade. I wanted to apply those theories to film, philosophy and geometry. My extensive research took me to many corners… 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, and after two years of intensive study, I received a certificate in Psychological Astrology. I started working with a small circle of clients, and this gave me a chance to empirically observe how the natal chart may manifest in real life. In the meantime, I kept researching about different branches of astrology, including Vedic (Indian) astrology, and had an additional two years of private astrological and spiritual studies with Vic DiCara (i. e. Vraja Kishor).

I am also infinitely in debt to Jeffrey Wolf Green and his evolutionary approach to astrology. His unique understanding of the outer planets and the nodes has certainly enriched my view of the cosmos and our place in it.

At the moment, I teach customized classes in Psychological & Evolutionary Astrology. I am also working on a book on Chiron as well as offering consultations to clients from around the world.

It is a pleasure to be of service to you 🙂

***Please note that I am not a “healer”. The title of the website refers to the potential in each of us to be a “healer” to our own wounds by delving deeper into our astrological birth chart. What I write is based on my interdisciplinary interests, creative synthesis of my astrological studies, and continuous experience gathered through one-to-one interaction with my clients to whom I owe a large part of my understanding of the symbols depicted in the birth chart. I hope you enjoy my posts!
