The Stellium Handbook is Finally Here!

ImageFor the past two years, I have devoted myself to exploring, teaching, and writing about stelliums. My goal has been to write an astrology/self-help book on this subject that could be equally easy to read for newcomers, astrology students, and professional astrologers. Today, the book is finally being released, and is available here.

To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever written a book about stelliums, and, as a result, they’ve remained something of a mystery. It’s crucial to understand them now because we’re in an era when an uncommon number of people have stelliums or triple conjunctions.

A special chapter is devoted to the millions born in the later 198os-mid 1990s with up to seven planets in Capricorn.

The most  potent stelliums occur under conjunctions of the slower-moving planets—Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto—because they correspond to major social, economic, and political changes that leave an impact on those born under them.

The slow-moving planets stand conjunct in the sky infrequently because of their long orbits around the Sun, but over the past 50 years, there have been an unusual series of them concentrated in consecutive signs.

Because of this series, there are possibly more people alive today with stelliums than ever before. The world population has continually increased over the past few centuries and is estimated to have reached 8 billion by the end of 2012. 

A series of slow-moving conjunctions formed cores of stelliums in the signs Virgo through Aquarius between 1960 and 2010. We’ll explore those conjunctions–and the effects of the stellium’s sign and house. We’ll consider the gifts, strengths, and challenges of each planet in the group.

Here are some features you’ll find:

 1) You’ll be guided, step by step, in creating stellium worksheets to help you understand the pieces of your stellium so you can make the best use of them and avoid the pitfalls. You’ll work with self-tests that list the positive and the difficult potentials of the stellium’s sign, house, and the planets in the combination. If you’re a professional astrologer, you can create these worksheets for clients or students.

2) With the PDF format, you can print out sections that pertain specifically to you or your loved ones, creating a permanent reference tool. Another PDF perk is a series of printable summary tables about the qualities associated with the signs, house, and planets.

3) The PDF format also allows for clickable links to blog articles and internet sites, a resource often used in this book to provide more in-depth information than we have space for here.

4) As with most of my books, this one isn’t just about astrology, because throughout the book I’ll suggest self-help tools that will help you tackle the difficulties described by your stellium or triple conjunction.

Used regularly, these tools can speed your progress in developing your gifts and abilities. Growing into a stellium or triple conjunction is a lifelong process with considerable rewards, but techniques like these can smooth out the learning curve.

In addition to computers of all sizes, these PDF files work just fine on a 10″ iPad type tablet, but not a 7″ one or on Kindle, as the many tables and charts need a bit more room.

Download a sample file here: Stellium Handbook Sampler. You can also download information about the extraordinary Saturn-Uranus-Neptune superconjunction that appears in the charts of people born with a Capricorn stellium in 1988-89 here: Capricorn Stellium Fact Sheet-Donna Cunningham. (For some reason these files may show up with magnified type, though the book itself does not. You may be able to change the setting on your tool bar.)

Feel free to pass these samples on to people with stelliums, astrology students, professional astrologers or anyone else you know who might be interested.

So, Readers, this is a banner day for me, because with a stellium of my own, I wanted to create something to make it easier for others with stelliums to make the most of the gifts and potentials a stellium so often confers. I also wanted to help them avoid the potholes along the stellium path, because with so many planets involved, there are likely to be conflicts of interest! I hope the word about this book will spread, because there are so many of us out there who could make a difference in our troubled world.

How to order the book: The Stellium Handbook is over 250 pages and 115,000 words, separated into two ebook files for easier navigation. It is $20 and can be ordered through PayPal. If you need to pay by check, write to me for details. (Note: I previously published a short, workbook version of this book called The Stellium Tool Kit, because of the urgent need for information on this subject. It’s no longer available.)

If you’ve never used PayPal before, here’s how:

  • Go to and create an account, using a credit card.
  • Tell them you want to send $20 to Donna Cunningham for The Stellium Handbook. ( Across the top of the PayPal page, there are a series of navy blue buttons.  One of them says, “Send Money.”)
  • Give them my email address: . (NOT moonmaven!)
  • They will send me a notice.
  • (If you need the ebook sent to a different email address than is on the account, let me know.)
  • I will send it to you as an email attachment.
  • Open and save the attachment.

PS: And, no, it is not available in paper. It’s 250 8 1/2 x 11″ pages–the equivalent of a half ream of paper per  copy. I love our trees and do not wish to be responsible for killing them.

Please take a moment to read our security policy. PayPal is a secure site and we’ve never had any difficulty with it, but there are a variety of scams on the internet in which hackers claim to be from PayPal, your credit card company, or your bank, asking you for personal and financial information. Never reply directly to such requests by clicking on a link in the email, but instead go to the company’s website and check your account.

About Donna Cunningham
Hi, I’m Donna Cunningham, the astrologer and author. Not Donna Cunningham, the Christian musician. Or Donna Cunningham, the New England math professor Or Donna Cunningham, the Florida realtor ….although I do listen to the music of the spheres, calculate the angles between the planets, and try to help people find their true home in this ever-shifting world of ours. I’ve been at this for 40 years, so if you were born in 1968 or after, I was watching the skies when you were born, trying to figure out what you’d be like when you grew up. Before I fell in love with astrology, I earned a master’s degree in social work from Columbia University, and I’ve counseled people about life challenges ever since. But social work is also about how we blend with our society, how we’re affected by the social and cultural milieu we live in, and how we cope with society’s institutions, structures, rules, and dysfunctions. I bring that broader perspective to my astrological insights by observing what happens as the slower-moving planets pass through the zodiac. As each of the outer planets passes through a sign, major social institutions are permanently altered, and we’re challenged to contend with those shifts. My specialty has been in helping people to understand and deal with the way the world is evolving while still remaining true to their core self. When I was born, Uranus was in Gemini, Neptune was in Virgo, and Pluto was in Leo. Now Uranus is ¾ around the wheel in Pisces, Neptune is in Aquarius, and Pluto has just popped into Capricorn for a long, long stay. The outer planets have covered a lot of zodiacal ground in that time, so I’ve watched society do a lot of changing and people right along with it. I did charts and counseled lots of individuals for a very long time, but it was always my mission to reach out to the broader world with the insights astrology makes possible. Fortunately, the Creator also gave me the gift of writing—and the grit to work hard at polishing it until the writing could speak to anyone who’d read it. I wrote 19 books, over a thousand articles, and 15 years of Dell Horoscope Magazine’s Dear Abbey type advice column. From all indications, doggone it, people like me! My current mission is to teach others in astrology and other New Age fields how to write about their own wisdom and experience. (Read about my online writing seminars at Books take a year or longer to write—longer still to publish—and articles and columns may take as much as six months to appear. That’s lonely work, so the idea of instantly sharing my newest discoveries and insights in a blog has great appeal. I hope you enjoy your visit, sign up to be notified of new posts, and come back often. Welcome!
