Judith Dides M.A. (Hamida) was exposed to astrology as a child when her mother and aunts talked about the Sun signs of family members which piqued her curiosity in the stars and their influence. She first connected with Evolutionary Astrology after reading Jeff Green’s books in the mid-80s. It was there she found a form of astrology that made sense of her life and experience. Her own search for meaning and purpose took her down academic and spiritual paths leading to degrees in Anthropology and Linguistics. Later, Hamida was ordained as a minister of the Universal Worship, a Sufi interfaith service. Her astrology practice was set on fire after attending the EAN conference Astrology, Reincarnation and the Soul, Denver 2010 and the DMP level 1 training with Patricia Walsh. These two events propelled Judith forward and added new depth to her readings. Judith Dides, also known as Hamida, is also an herbalist and flower essence practitioner. She calls upon the plant kingdom to support her clients on their soul’s journey with custom made potions as enhancements to her counseling.
