Judith HillJudith Hill is a master astrologer and award winning author of nine books including the classic Medical Astrololgy: Your Guide to Planetary Pathology and the classic The Astrological Body Types. She is also a Chartered Herbalist with The Dominion School of Herbal Sciences. Her scientific interests led her to complete ten years of statistical research in astro-genetics (with J. Thompson) and astro-seismology, (with M. Polit) resulting in several world published research works. Accepting an NCGR skeptic’s challenge, she perfectly matched five charts to five biographies in 1989, when she served as the Educational Director for the San Francisco National Council for Geocosmic Research and as a faculty member for The Institute of Stellar Influence Studies. Her interests in plant consciousness, life reverence, ancient medicine and history combine in the creation of The Lost Secrets of Renaissance Medicine conference. She is a professional musician and illustrator. As a publisher, she founded Stellium Press in 1992. She currently conducts a full range astrological practice and a genuine personal apprenticeship training through her Renaissance School of Practical Astrology.
