Jean Hinson Lall has been an astrological consultant and Jungian-oriented psychotherapist in private practice in Baltimore since 1975. A Certified Consulting Astrologer (NCGR Level IV), she holds a BA degree in English and an MA in archetypal studies, the latter focusing on astrology and Jungian psychology. More recently she has spent several years at the University of Kent in England pursuing research on traditional cosmologies and divination systems in order to understand more about the nature of astrological ‘reading’. She also has a deep interest in the place of astrology in the history of Western thought and culture and in its potential future contribution.
Jean has been a Fulbright tutor in India, a Peace Corps staff member, and a co-founder with Thomas Moore of the Institute for the Study of Imagination. She has lectured and conducted workshops on a variety of topics in astrology, myth, and archetypal psychology and has presented her work at conferences in the US and the UK.
