ANDREA M. KENNEDY began her informal study of astrology in 2009, thanks to a sudden interest in astrology which, not unlike a flu virus, developed almost overnight. It wasn’t until 2012 after attending a lecture on The Heart & the Lunar Nodes by Adam Gainsburg that she knew she had found her teacher. After pursuing her studies part-time, in early 2017 Andrea completed her certification as a Soulsign Astrologer through Adam’s Immersion Course. She has begun writing articles for publication and though she has been seeing clients for some time, has only recently begun to cultivate her practice.
Andrea has been part of the SAC Team since its inception and helped organize the inaugural Sky Astrology Conference in 2015 on Eleuthera Island, Bahamas. She has counted her blessings since she got this gig, and is tickled beyond measure to be a first time SAC presenter in 2018.
