Molly Hall has been the expert and editor for About.com Astrology since 2007.
From Molly Hall:
I've had an intuitive seekers way since as far back as I can remember. In my twenties, a sense of spiritual isolation led me into the Western mysteries and the language of the stars, astrology.
My seeking led me to the study of the Sacred Feminine at CIIS-California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco. I graduated from the Women's Spirituality M.A. program from the now-closed New College of California.
During my graduate course, I circled in ritual with some of the women's spirituality pioneers like Jalaja Bonheim, Vicki Noble and Starhawk. I also studied shamanism, Tarot and astrology with other teachers in the Bay area.
I was assistant to poet & playwright Genny Lim of San Francisco, in a course on meditation and yoga. I completed my MA with a ritual theatre production. In San Francisco, I led goddess circles and taught classes on Moon magic. I have been doing readings using Tarot and astrology off and on since 1999.
I was a feature writer for the Associated Press, before switching to writing about astrology, first in-house for a book publisher in NYC, and then as a free-lancer.
My passion for astrology evolves, and currently I'm interested in Western origins and living in season. Mostly, I'm dedicated to keeping it fresh, right here on About.com/Astrology.
I'm available for affordable one-on-one sessions -- see Wild Bee Grove for information.
