About the Author

Alicia Blando trained and practiced in the medical specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation. While working as a physician, she became interested in how indigenous healers diagnosed and treated their patients without the technology present in modern medicine. This curiosity was supported by what she learned about herself through the study of astrology. As a Western physician who has followed the tenets of astrology in her life, she believes that the practice of astrology can function as an adjunct method to study many aspects of life, including the tendencies for certain disease processes. Alicia currently works as a medical consultant. She currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.


"A contemplative consideration of incorporating astrology into daily life."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Open for Interpretation is a moving memoir about a medical doctor's search for a guide to a life of connection, meaning, and purpose."
--Foreword Reviews

"Blando's prose is clean and concise, and her storytelling moves effortlessly between the conscious and unconscious mind and body. . . . For those drawn more to the practical than the magical when it comes to the intuitive arts, her scientific perspective on astrology will be particularly appealing."
--BlueInk Review

"Dr. Alicia Blando's Open for Interpretation is a beautifully written memoir that will pull at your heartstrings as she pursues a medical career that is juxtaposed with her passion for astrology. She writes with brutal honesty about her self-doubt and questions whether to give up on her dream to become a doctor. At the same time, Alicia uses the language of the stars to view herself objectively and build the confidence to become a physician. Join her in this illuminating journey as she combines her two passions: medicine and astrology."
--Ronnie Gale Dreyer, MA, author, astrologer, and teacher
