Read Donna Cunningham’s new “A Stellium Handbook”.
She is a well-known astrologer, author of 15 astrology books, countless professional articles and has more than 40 years practice in the astrological field. Her background as social worker makes her advice particularly invaluable.
“The Stellium Handbook” teaches you about the both difficult and promising constellations of three or more bodies in one sign or one house. She welcomes us “to the world of stelliums and triple conjunctions–a world of vast potentials and yet of complicated and seldom easy life paths. If you have either of these patterns in your astrological chart, then anywhere from three to seven of the solar system’s ten bodies fall within about 30° of the zodiac’s 360° circle. As one of my students exclaimed when we had a lesson about them, “That’s a lotta watts in one small corner of the sky!” (p.1)
She helps the reader to use of all these watts in the sky efficiently – to discover the gifts and learn to handle the pitfalls. Her book is a work book, stuffed with information for both astrological beginners and professionals. You will find lots of work sheets to help you structuring your stellium analysis.
Sooner or later every professional astrologer will meet clients with stelliums, perhaps he or she has a stellium by himself – like Donna Cunningham who has a Gemini stellium, mirroring in her productive career as a writer. We had many stelliums in the last decades: the famous Uranus Pluto conjunction in Virgo between 1962-69, and several outer planets conjunctions from 1981 – 1990. 1989 had even a superconjunction of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in Capricorn, these people are (or will be) highly challenged by the actual Uranus-Pluto square. To unleash and focus all these energies into a constructive approach to bring change, healing and transformation both in oneself and the world Donna Cunningham provides a valuable source of support.
Personally I especially appreciate her kind and respectful encouragement to take responsibility for the positive and negative traits of astrological constellations. She values her clients and readers as people who are totally capable for growth and transformation.
“The chart doesn’t make us who we are—it’s just shows us who we are. It’s a mirror to help us see ourselves and our surroundings more clearly. Just as the mirror does not cause us to go gray as we age, the planets do not cause bad things to happen to us. More often than we care to admit, we create or contribute to our difficulties by self-defeating behaviors and unwise choices.” (p. 7)
With “The Stellium Handbook” Donna Cunningham helps to decipher an underestimated astrological topic – it is the first reference book that covers multiple conjunctions (except her “Stellium Toolkit”, which is no longer available).
Read, learn, transform, enjoy!
