Hello! My name is Shannon.
I am originally from small-town Nova Scotia. I went to University in Halifax where I studied Journalism at Kings and completed my BA in Theatre at Dalhousie. I’ve worked as a writer, bartender, actor, musician, teacher, counsellor, tour guide, waitress and manager. Recently I discovered that I am what might be referred to as a multipotentialite – Ha!
One abiding passion I have is astrology. I have studied the subject for the past 18 years, practiced and taught it for the last decade, and I still feel like a student with so much to learn. It is an ancient and ever evolving area of study. Astrology provides me with insights into what makes us humans who we are and this is what I endeavor to bring to my astrological readings, goodies and gift bags. I also fill them with a lot of love and care.
Currently, I live in Toronto with my Gemini husband Harrison and our Aquarian kitty, Virginia.

gift for someone

Astrological Gift Bags!
Sun Sign Giftbag:
Your personal sun sign scroll
A reusable drawstring giftbag
Dead sea bath salts (infused with essential oils specific to your sign)
An all-mineral lip gloss
matched to your signs natural element
A fun amulet (created to help you with “the folly” of your sign)
Four handmade cloth napkins
Adds in a piece of jewelry designed & handmade, specifically for each sign.
For every sign there are a few pieces of jewelry to choose from. I collaborated with the artists I chose to work with to come up with pieces I thought reflected the quality and element of each sign but in the end, taste is a highly subjective thing, and you are much more than just your Sun sign.
So, if you would like to select a piece of jewelry from another sign (ie: choose a piece of Aries jewelry to put into a Scorpio bag), you are more than welcome to do so.

*People born at the beginning and end of the times below are said to be on the cusps or border line dates and their sign can vary depending on the time date and place of their birth. These dates are marked with an Asterisk below. The people in the middle dates or dates where there is only one date given can be sure that they are the sign stated.
What does “my sign” mean?
What most people refer to as your astrological “sign” is actually your Sun sign. This is the sign in which the Sun was located at the time of your birth. In fact, all of the planets, including the Moon were in a particular sign at the exact time of your birth and all of that information has a great deal of meaning in terms of who you, specifically, are!
The Sun is the most predictable and easy to follow celestial body in the sky. It moves one degree per day, it goes through one sign about every 30 days, and it takes roughly one year to complete its loop through the zodiac wheel. Sound familiar? Yes, this is actually how long it takes us to go one rotation around the sun. But we measure astrology from earth because that’s where we earthlings live. So the Sun fits quite neatly into our calendar.
If your Sun sign was all that astrology was about, there would only be 12 different personality types in the world and we all know this isn’t true. However, the watered down version of astrology that you read in your daily newspaper seems to suggest that this is the case and, for many, this is the only thing they know about astrology. This is why I get a lot of strange looks from new people when I say I’m an astrologer. They think I am a weak-minded and fate-driven weirdo. It’s a hard first impression to work back from- trust me!
But I digress. Currently- Star Presents is all about your Sun sign because I had to pick one central theme to start with. Eventually, I hope to be making gifts and goodies for your Moon sign, then your Rising sign and then gift bags specifically designed just for You and I want to start making gifts and goodies for men as well as babies. Oh! It’s gonna be fun:).
