About Moi!

Welcome to Shannon Astrology, an astrological consultation & gift bag business owned and operated by me- Shannon Cunningham. 

I am originally from small-town Nova Scotia having grown up in a village with a population of 273 people. I attended University in Halifax where I studied Journalism at Kings and completed my BA in Theatre at Dalhousie. I’ve received training in transpersonal psychology from the Psychosynthesis Institute in CA and am qualified as a Life Coach with the Certified Coaches Federation. I also have my St. Johns Ambulance training up to date so if you start choking on a chicken bone in front of me, I could (maybe) save your life. 

Over the years, I’ve worked as an actor, musician, teacher, bartender, server and fine dining restaurant manager. I have a highly mutable chart which means I can scatter my energies but also, I am versatile. Therefore, most of my life I have worked one job to pay the bills and another to give my life meaning.

When I moved to Toronto in 2000, I started studying astrology and fell deeply in love with the subject.  What I value most about astrology is that it provides me with insights into what makes us humans so different from one another.

In 2009, I completed my diploma in Chart Consultation with the Canadian Association for Astrological Education (CAAE) and became a practicing astrologer and teacher of astrology.

I strive to use astrology to help people gain insight & self-acceptance and to better their lives.  I am a big fan of free will so you don't have to worry about me using any deterministic language in my consultations.

Limiting statements are not my bag. In fact, they were the reason it took me so long to commit to becoming a consulting astrologer. I am very careful in this regard.

Astrology can also be fun and this is what I endeavour to bring to my Shannon Astrology gifts bags. I put a lot of thought into the products, customizing every tea blend, carefully selecting the stones for the amulet bracelets and I make the essential oil candles by hand. I want everything in the Sun Sign gift bag to be a sweet and inspiring introduction to astrology. There is a big sprinkle of Shannie love in there!

Currently, I live in the East end of Toronto with my husband Harrison. He is a Gemini, the one sign I said I would never date...
