Chad Woodward has been studying and practicing astrology for over ten years and is influenced by many different schools of thought including classical, Hellensitic, modern, psychological, and evolutionary. He is a graduate of the Steven Forrest Apprenticeship Program and is specially trained in the paradigm of evolutionary astrology. He feels that his readings work as a means of highly effective, spiritual guidance. Chad began writing astrological articles on his first blog, Kosmic Mind, in 2009. In addition to his blog, Chad was an intern for PlanetWaves.net and has produced articles on Astrology.Answers.com. His articles have also been featured on Mystic Mamma and About.com.
Chad is also a massage therapist and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist. He received his training in Craniosacral Biodynamics through Lifeshapes Institute, which has profoundly shaped his astrological practice through the learned cultivation of presence, inner stillness, and trust in the innate intelligence of the natural world. He currently practices astrology and bodywork in Southern California. Aside from astrology, Chad has a deep interest in various subjects including astronomy, psychology, anthropology, physics, philosophy, mythology, herbalism, nutrition, yoga, and various healing arts and sciences. When not working on bodies, articles, forecasts, or readings, Chad is likely attempting to finish his ever growing stack of books beside his bed, as well as making herbal medicines, traveling to National Parks, hiking, working out, and petting his cat, Milo.
