William Morris began his astrological career with his first consultation in the fall of 1977 while working as a professional musician. Upon leaving the road, he began using music from an astrologically informed perspective for healing purposes. Understanding that, to thoroughly practice medical astrology, one also had to study medicine, he earned a doctorate in Chinese medicine and a PhD focused on practice-based ways of knowing, extending into all disciplines, including astrology and homeopathy. His approach to astrology is eclectic, employing methods throughout the history of the Western tradition and India. His primary mentor in medical astrology is Lee Lehman.
