About Cathy

Awakening the Soul's Wisdom


"I am a spiritual guide based in the Wisdom tradition of the sacred feminine within both women and men.  Through private sessions, classes, and dream work, I offer support for you to untangle old complexes that keep you in pain so you can then connect more deeply with your inner wisdom and spirit, and develop your greatest gifts to give to the world."   Cathy Pagano 


Cathy Pagano is a Jungian-trained psychotherapist, astrologer, storyteller and Wisdom coach. She is the author of “Wisdom’s Daughters: How Women Can Change the World, a symbolic, mythic look at the image of Lady Wisdom as cosmic, Conscious Woman -- ‘a Woman clothed with the Sun, standing on the Moon & crowned with Stars’, the Goddess-energy that can change our world.   And she is the author of Stories of the Earth, a book of spiritual tales of the 8 Gateways of the Wheel of the Year.

Cathy is a ordained priestess of the Goddess Sekhmet and is available for spiritual counseling as well as private rituals.

Cathy works as a psycho-spiritual mentor based in the Wisdom tradition of the Sacred Feminine.  Working with dreams, mythology, archetypes, feminine spirituality and symbolic language, Cathy coaches and counsels both women and men to help them connect with their inner being. 

Cathy is also an internationally known astrologer.  She writes bi-monthly newsletters on the archetypal meaning of the New and Full Moons called The Cosmic Story, which also appears on the progressive news site opednews.com  Cathy is a contributing blogger on Astrology.com--a part of iVillage.com and she is the resident astrologer on Karen Tate's Voices of the Sacred Feminine radio show.

        One of the best ways to both access Wisdom and learn to understand the language of the imagination is through Dreamwork.  With over 30 years of experience, Cathy leads dream groups and uses dream interpretation in her psychotherapy practice.  While Cathy works with astrology to help people understand the blueprint of their lives, she works with dreams to help people understand how they are using their energies and dealing with unconscious complexes.  And through working with dreams, teaches people how to trust their imaginations and reclaim their own wisdom.

          The focus of her work is to help people, especially women, individuate—become their own original Self.  

In addition to her B.A. in Religion & Philosophy from Colby College, Cathy Pagano got her Masters in Counseling Psychology from Goddard College, where she studied the Psychology of the Feminine Psyche. Cathy also trained for three years at the C.G. Jung Institut-Zurich, where she learned how to work with and interpret dreams as the path to Individuation.

 Working with the Unconscious inspired her to learn more about the tools of the Imagination, which access the Unconscious and speak to the Soul.  Working with Cathy can help you understand the powerful messages within your dreams, which come to us to give us direction and purpose in our lives.  Dreams can lead you to your deepest truths.

Cathy has studied Archetypal Astrology for 25 years as a way  of understanding human nature and our relationship to the Cosmos. She discovered that astrology has been the basis of Western philosophy, and it has helped clients as a personality indicator and diagnostic tool.

Cathy is a Certified Empowerment Coach, specializing in Midlife Renewal and Individuation Coaching.  Her experience as a mother and counselor enhance her work as a Relationship and Family Coach.  Her work as a Wisdom Coach puts you in touch with your own inner wisdom.  

Cathy leads Wise Women Salons that open women to our original natures and powers.  Women can reclaim our feminine gifts of Wisdom, Love and Imagination.  'Our creative imagination is the voice of the Goddess and women need to re-learn this our original feminine language--the language of the right brain.'  

            Cathy's background in Dream Work and Mythology makes her a strong Story Coach, using her knowledge of the great mythological traditions of the world to help writers and artists access the power of the Collective Unconscious to create works of art that speak to people on the deepest levels.
