Classical Astrology on Mental Health Issues in the Nativity

with Elena Lumen, PhD


Mental health issues have been an important part of human experience and research since ancient times. Ranging from anxiety and depression to psychotic disease and addiction, these problems fascinated the minds of early astrologers, and remain as relevant in modern times. We will explore techniques of classical western astrology for identifying and potentially finding remedies for mental health problems illustrated by case studies. This material draws on Elena Lumen’s long experience as a counseling psychologist and astrologer.

Elena Lumen, PhD is a traditional astrologer, retired psychologist, and astrology instructor. She is faculty at the International Academy of Astrology and frequently presents at various astrological organizations on the topics of horary, electional, and predictive astrology. Elena defended her dissertation on the value and appeal of astrology as a system of meaning at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in California. She hosts a few mentoring and practice groups and consults with clients all over the world. She can be found on FB: Elena Lumen or her website:

Diane Ronngren

October 2020: We have some sad news to share with you all about one of our NCGR San Diego Board members. Our beloved Vice President, Diane Ronngren, recently transitioned from this earthly plane. She is now with the stars she loved and watched for many, many years, and reuniting with family, friends, and pets she’s not been with in quite some time.

This is a devastating loss for many of us who held Diane close in our hearts, and she will be greatly missed. Because of the pandemic, we are unable to gather together in person to celebrate Diane’s life. If you wish to do something to commemorate Diane’s life and contribution to astrology, I’m sure she would be honored to have donations made in her name to the Helen Woodward Animal Center
