Subtle Vitality
In this episode Shannon speaks with Intuitive Biofeedback Coach, Roz, from  In a nutshell, as an intuitive biofeedback coach Roz helps people get in touch with their spidey-senses so they can experience life in a more informed and efficient way.  We explore the concepts of subtle energy, magnetic mindset and electric living. We discuss the electricity of the body and the importance of being aware of ourselves in that light especially because of the electricity all around us affecting biologically. Electric health is cellular health, and radiation scrambles our cells' ability to communicate with each other properly. Tune in for an alternative, illuminating and insightful conversation!

#5 Call to Being: What's Going on?!
It's clear something unprecedented is occurring on the Planet. In this episode Shannon shares the astrological cycles at play and how they are connected to Earth's recent history. This episode emphasizes the importance of being aware of the energy we are embodying during these times. In many ways these cycles are about the power of the people; and we are discovering like Dorothy, we've had the power all along.  Shannon shares an overall analogy that Earth is essentially changing to a healthier diet and experiencing some detox systems before a new level of collective vitality kicks in. A  new wave of energy from Pluto and Jupiter is carrying us into times of information and illumination. It' a happening time to be alive on Earth and in this episode listeners will gain  clarity in order to support them in synthesizing with these changing times.  Email your questions to, join the current energies updates list at and follow on IG @shannonhugman

#16: Retrograde Rant
Don’t buy into the negative retrograde hype. Retrogrades can be like a solid night’s sleep; giving us a chance to let go of our physical realities and tune into ourselves.

This episode offers a unique attitude that embraces the slow paced side of retrogrades and invites you to try it on to see if it fits.  Tune in to learn about Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus and Pluto's retrograde.  Follow @shannonhugman on Instagram, visit or email

#12 Equinox Energies
Equinoxes are times when we experience equal amounts of daylight and night time. It’s an energy that strives for an even playing field; however it’s evident equality isn’t that name of Earth’s game. As inequality becomes clear our inner warriors are called to action. These energies show us where we are at and how we can balance out situations either by taking action or dialling back. It’s also the astrological new year! Remember beginnings take courage, bravery and perseverance. Connect with Shannon at or @shannonhugman on Instagram. Email your questions to

#8 Why We Are More Than Just Our Sun Signs (Part 1)
Astrology has often been reduced to a few sentences in a newspaper column or as we call them: Horoscopes. The population has been grouped into 12 and we're told to believe that anyone with the same sun sign must have similar traits. In this episode Shannon takes a moment to touch on why there's so much more to the picture than our sun signs. She talks about current energies, the birth chart and ends the episode inviting you all to submit questions relating to this juicy topic. Send questions to Follow Shannon @shannonhugman and

#7.5 Total Lunar Eclipse January 2019
The current energies are palpable, apparent and A LOT; so it’s worth dedicating a mini episode to. Feeling frazzled? Fearful? Confused? Excited? All of the above?

This mini episode goes out to everyone whose wanting to discuss that which often goes unsaid. Here’s to the only total lunar eclipse of 2019. One that wraps up streams of energy that have been flowing since February 2017.   Connect with Shannon on instagram (@shannonhugman) and at

#7 Eclipse Season
Eclipse season is a window of time which occurs twice a year. It's a period of energetic adjustments which are inviting us to adopt some good posture (symbolically or literally). This often occurs through being hyper aware of when we are slouching. It's a time of high speed movement however those currents may not line up with what we logically perceive. This is why it's key to adopt a flexible attitude which will result in less stress and confusion. Email questions to and follow Shannon Hugman on Instagram @shannonhugman.

#5 Full Moon Feels
Full moon feels... maybe every month we get them; maybe sometimes more than others.

#4 New Moon Meaning: Phase 1 of the Lunar Cycle
This week Shannon breaks down the meaning of a New Moon and more importantly what it’s not. This unique perspective shifts the conversation from “what can we manifest” to how can we be energetically aware of ourselves and others. The moon doesn’t care about our material gains and this isn’t a pro-vision board opinion. Shannon explains why there’s no reason to hustle this week and that less is more. Tilling the soil, making space and planting our seeds without expecting them to bloom immediately is what this energy is all about. Not to mention taking an honest look at the motivation behind said seeds. This episode provides information that can be applied to every New Moon. She also breaks down this specific New Moon and the themes it holds for each of the 12 zodiac signs. For more visit and submit questions to Follow Shannon on Instagram and twitter @shannonhugman

#3 The Moon's North and South Nodes
The nodes are the two points where the Sun's orbit and the Moon's orbit connect. These juicy little sweet spots dictate where Eclipses occur however they also hold a lot of symbolism collectively and individually. They switch signs every 1.5 years and we are fresh into a new cycle of the North Node in Cancer and the South Node in Capricorn (began on November 6th). In this episode we break down what this means for us humans and how we can use this information to navigate these changing tides. We talk about the collective influence for the next year along with specific guidance for each of the 12 signs. We round out the episode talking about the week ahead and why it's a time of winding down. EDIT!! I forgot to say the Capricorn forecast so I added it in at the end. Sorry about that Cappies!!
