About Me

Hi – I’m Chirone Shakti and I’m passionate about empowering people to transform their lives.  The reason I love what I do is that I love seeing the transformation and sense of empowerment that comes as people start to understand themselves better, connect with their path and really fulfill their potential. I find this really rewarding.

The main modality I work with is Astrology – I find the insights it can bring to any situation just amazing. It’s a language of symbolism that works with archetypal energies, and it’s a fantastic starting point for any journey of transformation and personal empowerment.

I’ve been a professional astrologer since 1993.  I studied with the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, and I’ve also got a background as a professional counsellor and therapist. For people with specific issues they want to address, my approach is gentle yet with profound results.

I use Astrology to help people realise their full potential (it’s all there in the chart!), and to transform any negative patterns that are playing out in their lives. To me, astrology is a wonderful modality that works with archetypal energies and uses the language of symbolism to bring the light of conscious awareness to any situation.

I see clients on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, and I work with clients from all round the world over the internet. The same goes for my Astrology courses and workshops – if you can’t attend in person there’s always the option of accessing the material online or having private tutorials with me over the internet.

Originally from England, I lived overseas for many years before moving to Australia in 1996 and making my home here in South East Queensland.  The countries I’ve lived in include Greece, Thailand, Iran and Japan, and I love the buzz of cross-cultural living.

My educational background is in History of Art and Linguistics.  To me astrology is similar to linguistics in that it is the study of patterns, and it is very much a language of symbolism.

Astrology was my introduction to self-development and spirituality many years ago, when I realized that in order to heal I actually had to deal with my ‘stuff’, and that it wasn’t going to go away no matter how much I ignored it. The insights I gained from astrology fascinated me, particularly as they were so accurate.

After becoming a professional astrologer, studying with the Faculty of Astrological Studies (FAS) in London, I then did a Graduate Diploma in Counselling with the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) to further develop my skills.

I work with both astrology and holistic therapies, and find astrology invaluable in gaining deeper insight into the issues that my clients bring.

Much of my working life has been in adult education, and as well as seeing clients, I run astrology courses and workshops, bringing my skills and experience in teaching, course development and group facilitation to these workshops.

My professional journey has expanded over the past 10 years or so to include working with therapeutic and vibrational energy fields, in particular working with modalities such as Family Constellations, Shamanic Path & Practice, Voice Dialogue, the White Light Essences and Light Frequency Essences.  More recently I’ve added the emotional healing side of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils to my body of work.

I am passionate about transforming the society we live in.  One of the ways I’ve done this is by being involved in programmes that offer contemporary rites of passage for young people.  I’ve worked with the mothers (and carers) of boys who are leaving on their Journey to Manhood programme, and facilitate the transition for these women while their sons are away at camp, before they return as young men.  These programmes are community-based and support teenagers in their transition to responsible young adults – something I believe addresses the alienation of youth and is really changing our society for the better!

I am also involved with a number of community groups such as Being Woman, supporting women to expand and heal at deep levels through offering my services in transformational experiential workshops.

You can also find me on Facebook.  My Chirone Shakti – Stargazer Astrology Facebook page  keeps you up to date with what’s happening astrologically in the cosmos, what the planets are up to and what effect this is likely to have on us, particularly at the collective level. It also gives you info on the courses and workshops I’m running, and any special offers.
I have another Facebook page Chirone Shakti – Lemurian Goddess which focuses on my work with the Divine Feminine and with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils.

Thanks for your interest in me and the work I do .  I look forward to meeting you online (or maybe even in person) before long!!!
