Carol Allen is lifetime member of The American Council of Vedic Astrology. In private practice, Carol has counseled thousands of people in the areas of relationships, finances, career, health, real estate, travel, and conception. She has been a featured guest on dozens of local and nationally syndicated radio shows. Her writings have been in several books of the Hot Chocolate for the Mystical Soul series, A Second Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul, The Whole Life Times, New Woman Spirit, The Taos Sun, The Journal for the American Council of Vedic Astrology, and Woman’s World.
Carol spent her youth in the San Francisco Bay area and studied psychology and sociology at UC Berkeley. There was nothing in Carol’s upbringing to hint she’d become an astrologer aside from having a sleeping bag decorated with the signs of the zodiac. Her life-long involvement in personal-growth movements and creative expression has led her to training in the fields of method acting, writing, improvisational comedy, massage, Reiki, Siddha Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga. A chance meeting with a Vedic astrologer at a party in 1990 led her to this path.
Carol has found that most of her clients want to know about love and money. She, therefore, has become a relationship expert, studying the works of such love gurus as John Gray, Dr. Pat Allen, Barbara De Angeles, John Gottman, and Justin Sterling. She spent two years actively participating in the programs of The Sterling Institute of Relationship, in which she studied the inherent differences between men and women and how to make the most of all personal and professional dynamics. She especially loves the insights Vedic Astrology can lend in the area of romance and interpersonal compatibility and blends this stellar information with her years of research to give incredibly helpful advice. Carol has been studying and practicing since 1991.
