Arroyo, Stephen (1946– )
Stephen Arroyo is an outstanding contemporary astrologer
and leader in the move to integrate it with modern psychology.
He was born on October 6, 1946, in Kansas City, Missouri. His
father, Joseph Arroyo, was a successful businessman and founder
of Karr Products, Inc., in Chicago. Arroyo began his college
career at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, but received
his B.A. at the University of California at Davis in 1968. He received
a master’s degree in psychology at California State University
in Sacramento in 1972 and was licensed as a marriage,
family, and child counselor in the state of California. He married
in 1971.
As a young man, Arroyo had become interested in astrology
and while still in college began to study it seriously. He was able
to make contact with Dane Rudhyar during the period he was
developing transpersonal astrology, and he both studied and
carried on an extensive correspondence with Rudyhar. He also
studied with other astrological notables such as Isabel Hickey.
In 1970 he opened a counseling practice in which he used both
his astrological and psychological training. In addition, Arroyo
became a frequent contributor to astrological publications. His
writings led to his first book, Astrology, Psychology, and the Four
Elements, in 1975. He has subsequently written a half-dozen additional
books, most widely used as textbooks. His Chart Interpretation
Handbook has proved a popular beginning text as it attempts
a more sophisticated approach to interpretation
centered on an understanding of the overall relationship of the
various elements of the horoscope.
Arroyo has emerged in the 1990s as one of the most internationally
honored astrologers. His work has been recognized by
the British Astrological Association, the Fraternity of Canadian
Astrologers, and the United Astrology Conference.
