What Reviewers are Saying about The Stellium Handbook

 From Anne Whitaker: “Master astrologer and writer Donna Cunningham draws on her long and deep experience in astrology and related handbookcvrsmfields to produce this first ever thorough, in-depth work on stelliums – a very much needed aid for readers of varying levels of astrological knowledge. Her commitment is to make the book available to everyone with stelliums, not just astrologers or astrology students.

“It is written with Donna’s signature depth, clarity, humour, and compassion. One of her gifts is to be able to be briskly honest and realistic about the most difficult topics, but in such a compassionate, often witty way that the reader feels encouraged rather than squashed by the information provided.

 “This fine book, the latest addition to her abundant astrological output, is an essential reference work for all astrologers’ libraries. It’s one to which they can return time and time again as they encounter clients who are trying to come to grips with one of the most challenging, and potentially rewarding, of all astrological patterns: the stellium.”

Review of Donna Cunningham’s Stellium Handbook in the Astrological Association of Great Britain Journal: “There hasn’t previously been much written in depth about stelliums – those multiple conjunctions within a sign – so Donna Cunningham’s book is a very welcome addition to astrological literature homing in on a special characteristic within a chart. The book will naturally be of interest to readers with natal stelliums or triple conjunctions as well as to consulting astrologers whose clients may have these. Donna’s easygoing writing style and side notes ensure the book is equally accessible for newcomers, students and astrology professionals.”

Review by Mary Plumb in The Mountain Astrologer: “Donna Cunningham, well known and well loved in astrology circles, has a new book on stelliums. She has a warm and encouraging voice, with a realistic view of life’s difficulties. I don’t know of anyone else who has examined and written about these bundles of three or four planets in the horoscope. This is a much-needed addition in the astrology library.”

Review of Donna Cunningham’s Stellium Handbook by Anthony Louis: “Before reading this book, I never realized that so much information could be gleaned from analyzing stelliums in a natal chart. Donna’s approach was an eye-opener. This book is refreshing for both its new insights and its transparency of presentation.

“Donna’s knowledge and experience in dealing with clients shines through on every page. It’s written with beginners in mind but contains much valuable information that will appeal to experienced astrologers. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this text and learned a lot by reading through it. I will never look at stelliums the same way again.”

Review by April Elliot Kent: “I was especially eager to get my hands on this book, and it doesn’t disappoint. Why eager? Because more and more of my clients were born during the late 1980s, and the most eloquent astrologer can find herself struck dumb in the presence of a chart with practically every planet in, say, Capricorn.

“Donna Cunningham is extremely effective at laying out complex astrological concepts in a user-friendly way. And what I love best about her books is that she doesn’t just leave you stranded with a technical understanding of the astrology, but also offers a self-help life raft of tools and resources to help you get the most out of your chart.”

Emerging Pattern writes: “You want to learn everything about Stelliums that is worth to learn? Read Donna Cunningham’s new A Stellium Handbook. The book provides a valuable source of support. 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 of growth and transformation.”

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 http://www.moonmavenpublications.com/writingseminar.html.) 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!
