Full Moon Eclipse 31st January 2018, Blue Moon

Michael Conneely

Full Moon Eclipse 31st January 2018 : What Effects will there be in your Life afterwards?

Here are some genuine and thoughtful pointers to how to understand today’s eclipse, using both Vedic Astrology and Western Astrology, with eclipse charts provided (see below).

What I’m offering here is the intelligent and learned, informed way to decode the effect of an Eclipse in your life. This is not the usual formulaic rabbiting on!!! And you are most welcome to have one of my wonderful worldwide Astrology Readings or to enroll on my caring and totally individual worldwide Astrology Courses.

Note that Eclipses are very powerful earthquake energies. They cause tsunamis. And they cause earthquakes and tsunamis including in our lives.

And of course, Eclipses are more likely to cause the earthquakes and tsunamis in our lives, if the eclipse falls on one of the planets in our birth chart. Or if the eclipse falls on a chart angle such as the Ascendant. Or if the eclipse triggers issues held pent up in a particular House in our birth chart. So, if it’s our 7th House, this will be relationship issues.

And of course, the nature, scale and effect of our earthquake/tsunami will depend on how much tension is built up in our life. How much is blocked? How much is dammed up?

We should stick to the analogy that an earthquake releases tension that has built up in the earth’s crust: earthquakes release tension in the strata that can be held no longer.

And note that earthquake takes place beneath the vastness of the ocean, then a huge tsunami will be formed: a tidal wave will crash up onto the land and obliterate (and make room for new growth)

And so, of course, depending in the nature of the tension that is built up in our life, the effect of the Eclipse earthquake will be felt to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’.

The Details of this Eclipse:

See the charts in western and Vedic Astrology: go to the Charts and Tables 2018 Page on my readings website:
https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html 
And I also provide a ‘Planets Information’ page for 2018, see: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets.html

This Eclipsed Moon is at 11 deg at 11 deg Leo and Sun at 11 deg Aquarius in Western Astrology Tropical Zodiac. Ascendant 11 Aquarius.

So, Eclipsed Moon at 17 deg Cancer and Sun at 17 deg Capricorn in Vedic Astrology Sidereal Zodiac.
Ascendant 6 Gemini in Ardra Nakshatra.
Note that the Eclipsed Moon itself is in Ashlesha Nakshatra whose power animal is the Serpent. And so this could produce deep hurt , painful eruption and transformation in Ashlesha natives.
But the eclipse is only just into Ardra Nakshatra, and so people with Sun Moon or Ascendant in the preceding Pushyami Nakshatra will also be strongly affected by this eclipse.
For details of Ashlesha Nakshatra, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0nvWaJPtcA&t=25s and  //blog.starwheelastrology.com/worldwide-nakshatras-course-and-ashlesha-nakshatra/

So, Ask the Question: What is dammed up in you, now, on this Full moon, 31st January 2018 ?

And so, if it is love or creative energy that is dammed up in our life and if an Eclipse happens on a relevant planet in our chart, then we will manifest that dammed up creative or love energy potential.

And if it is your Power that is dammed up (for example if you have Unaspected Pluto in your birth chart), then you might have dam burst spraying of your power all over others! You’ll be driven, and the Dark Lord Pluto will arise!!!! Things could arise apparently from nowhere in your life like the entities that issue forth every Samhain/Halloween from the cave of The Morrigan near here: Oweynagat – the cave of War Goddess of the ancient Irish.

OR, surely, better, than that, you may have worked with your power issues and studied your astrology chart, and so you’ll know that the power flow the eclipse will most certainly trigger, will need to be handled in balance with the rest of your life, and be handled with care not to harm others. And so, in a real way, you’ll come into your real power!

BUT if we are at a situation where we are refusing to let go of things that we utterly need to lose from our life, now, then we could experience downfall or collapse (but hopefully because we were clinging on to that which should die, and hopefully with a chance for ‘death and rebirth’ later on).

Your Mind on this full moon 31st January 2018:

And of course, there’s the important issue of ‘management of the mind’. As an example, say you have an isolated Moon in your birth chart, then you’ll be prone to repetitive thoughts even ‘OCD’ scale. When the Moon has no planet either side of it in the Vedic birth chart its called a ‘Kemadruma Moon’. Then you’ll need to learn to live with repetitive mind thoughts, or even better, learn to get out of the box (prison) they create for you, so as to see and experience and express the vaster horizons of your true self, that special creative spark you incarnated to express, and the vastness of the divine gifts that are out there (and inside us).
I think it was one of my wonderful students on my Ogham Course (Ogham is the Celtic Tree Alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids), who sent into me this observation:

The insider that opens the door of my being
That is my restless and vivid mentality
There’s not so much of an enemy outside (not sure I agree with that bit!!!!!???????)
But INSIDE: That’s the one that needs watching carefully

Are you strong enough for your Task?

And then of course there’s also the issue of the strength in your chart. Are you strong enough to positively reap from the energy flow that an eclipse will release if it falls on a planet in your chart? (and you could add here: strength for doing what?)
Vedic Astrology has a wonderful system of assessing whether a planet is Exalted or Debilitated in your birth chart and in your life, and Vedic Astrology also has a wonderful series of Divisional Charts (called Varga Charts) derived from the main birth chart, where each Varga chart makes most wonderful declaration as to a specific area of your life such as: Marriage, ancestral curse, wealth, spiritual nature/worship, overall strength/limitation of each planet’s potential manifestation in your chart in therefore in your life.
For details of my wonderful Varga Course, see: https://www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com/varga-course.html
And, for example, if you have your Sun or your Moon or your Ascendant/Rising Sign/Lagna in one of the three Gandanta Zones (the dangerous, immaterial but potentially inspirational transition points from Water Sign to Fire Sign in your Vedic birth chart), then you might be weak and lacking in confidence for the things of this world (and yet be very sensitive, and hopefully you’ll find that special inspiration that can be the gift of Gandanta.
And what is strength anyway? In Vedic Astrology there are wonderful ways to measure the strength of each planet in your birth chart and to measure and state how your planets treat each other.
You can book a reading from me at: www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreading
And it would be wonderful if you subscribed to my Master Vedic Astrology Foundation Course:
It’s caring and vast, and there’s many more advanced course you can go on to learn more advanced techniques from me as well. There’s vision presentations of all the Vedic and Western planets, mediations and so much more. There’s western astrology/Vedic astrology crossover within the course if you wish for it. See: www.mastervedicastrology.com

Sub Personalities: OK – So, which part of you is affected by the eclipse?

And then of course there’s’ the issue of Sub Personalities. I am a great believer in the wonderful declaration of Psychodynamic Astrology, and the effect that Assagioli’s model of Sub Personalities had on Western Psychodynamic Astrology. There’s a whole system I use in my Readings and teach in my courses based on psychosynthesis. I use the Megastar program which is pretty good at detailing the char aspect shape in your birth chart, which are such good pointers to the sub personalities in our chart and therefore in our life.

And it’s important to note that the Eclipse might trigger a subpersonality that is cut off from the rest of the chart: ‘Unaspected’, and this might mean that something we never know was there (well, that’s our story!) raises its head and arises to take over!!!!! Or more positively, we may come in to our wonderful qualities that up to now were cut off from our awareness.

Past Life Trigger?

And of course, there are Past Life issues that can be triggered by an eclipse. Ketu, the South Node of the Moon, is the great declaration of our Past Life. We come in to this life where Ketu is in our birth chart. And we are thrown to the other side of our chart to where Rahu, the North Node of the Moon is in our birth chart as the indicator for our Destiny, our Incarnational Life Purpose this time!

Western Evolutionary Astrology using the Tropical Zodiac declares our Incarnational life purpose and Destiny in terms of our psychological self and how our Life Purpose will express and unfold psychologically, in terms of our Individuation, our getting to know our psychological Egoic Self. The Tropical Zodiac is based on the point of the Sun’s position on the first day of Spring: The Vernal Equinox, a moving position against the backdrop of the stars (moves a degree every 72 years) so being Sun-sign based, it’s depictive of our egoic psychological Self. So, we’d look to western astrology to explore the psychological consequences of Past Lives.

But Vedic Astrology, which must properly use the Sidereal Zodiac, makes an utterly vast declaration of our incarnational destiny and our incarnational life purpose this lifetime. So, we’d look to Vedic Astrology for declaration of the Destiny implications of Past Lives.

Why am I so interested in this Eclipse?

Well, Rahu North Node of this Eclipse falls on my natal Pluto (which is Unaspected in the first House in my Western Astrology birth chart), and it’s within less than 3 deg orb from my Ascendant.
And also the Ascendant of the Eclipse falls exactly on my natal Uranus.
And transiting Uranus falls within less than one degree on my natal Moon.

Now, according to the ancient dictums, eclipse on your Ascendant can mean downfall, and the toppling of Kings.
Although the eclipse Sun and Moon at 4 deg Vedic Leo, of the Eclipse of 21st August 2017 fell on Donald Trump’s Ascendant and Mars – and he became a President for good or ill!.

But I predict that my blocked-up power will be freed by today’s eclipse, and I will manifest more successfully in the world. Do get in touch with me for a Reading to decipher the effect of this eclipse (and so much more) in your chart, OR to enroll on one of my wonderful worldwide Astrology Courses.

By the way, when making Predictions, you do need to take into account the Dasha, or Predictive Period of Vedic Astrology that the person is in, and the standing of the planet that is their Dasha Lord. Vedic astrology has an immeasurably wonderful sequences of Predictive Periods called Dashas that unfold from the moment of your birth with the start point in the sequences depending on the exact position of the Moon measured by the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology (not the tropical zodiac). I entered Jupiter Dasa a year ago and Jupiter is very strong in my chart (I’m not boasting, other planets in my chart are totally trashed and weak), and so this will give me purpose and Big Picture and the ability to manage the Power that the Eclipse will free up.

Beyond these personal dimensions, we note that this Eclipse is in Vedic Cancer, so in a background sense the energy will pint us towards issues of our emotional reality and care for ourselves, and of course you have to take not the which House the Eclipse falls in in both your Western astrology charts and also your Vedic Astrology chart to decode the effect of the eclipse in your life. Lunar Eclipses normally have pretty immediate effect. Solar Eclipses have delayed effect. The power of an Eclipse is partly determined by the period of visibility of the Eclipse from the surface of the Earth. The closeness of the Moon to the Earth’s surface at the time of the Eclipse is also an important factor.

The Dark Goddess and How to Work with Her

Michael Conneely

Why not enroll for this superb Mini Reading to help better enable your life:
www.starwheelastrology.com/dark-goddess-mini-reading

It is good to work with the Dark Goddess at any time. There is so much of our wider or obscured truth that we can learn from Her, and if we do we heal and empower.

But at the end of October 2017, Saturn crosses the uncertain Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta Zone and he enters Mula Nakshatra, which is the 19th Vedic Lunar Sign or Nakshatra.

And Mula Nakshatra is ruled over by Niritti.

And Niritti is the Dark Goddess: the Goddess of Death and Destruction.

Saturn and the Dark Goddess meet! They are such different gods, yet each of us has to work with, understand and benefit from this unlikely pairing from the endo of October 2017 until March 2018.

Enroll now for my ‘Working with the Dark Goddess’ Mini-Reading and we identify how you can work with Her. See: www.starwheelastrology.com/mini-readings

Here is a Video about how to work with the Dark Goddess:

So, Saturn is the stern Lord of Karma. Saturn is Lord of Karma, enforcer of discipline, hard work, patience and structure.

But The Dark Goddess if the shape-shifter and weaver who brings us what we least expect, but for our own good, and she calls us to be strong and look her in the eye.

Niritti is the dancing graveyard Goddess, whose gaze none of us can shirk from meeting with courage and truth.

Niritti is the dark apparently capricious bringer of Chaos, bringer of Death: bringer of death of what must now die in our life.

And so, Niritti is the sudden precipitous bringer of the new space we actually need now to allow in the needed totally new in our life.

Niritti dances all over our Saturn tram-lines. She shimmers shrieking into our consciousness showing us undreamt of whole new areas of rebirth and exploration, and she devastates now what must die in our life. In an instant, She offers us the chance to be strong! Her corybantic dance is the dance of death – and rebirth in our life.

Are you strong enough to gain her respect? Be prepared to work hard and be diligent, yet ALSO absolutely be open to the whispers and chinks and tsunamis of new inspiration, death of some of the old in your life, and change!

So, who and what is the Dark Goddess?

She likes Chaos. Her allegiance is responsible to something beyond Saturn’s Order. Above all, She wants us strong. And she wants us open. She actually loves us. But she will not accept our weaknesses or our evasions. And she rips up comfort zones completely!

Please understand: She is not at all ‘adharmic’. She actually calls us to greater Dharma. And she does this by tearing up the formulaic and controlled spiritual definitions. She doesn’t care much for mantra which can turn people into robots thinking that they are spiritual. She doesn’t care for the formulaic graded spiritual paths. She laughs at the constructed hierarchies and sects and in-groups. She rips these apart to let in the Light!

Can you benefit from this astrological perception now? Can you do the needed healing or empowerment work now?

For more about how these two: Saturn and Niritti, can possibly get on in your life, enroll now for my ‘Working with the Dark Goddess’ Mini-Reading

Do this as Saturn meets Niritti now!

We have to be open and strong, and hardworking and diligent, and be prepared to meet whatever comes and change direction, in which case, She will give us victory, and we will be strong.

What do you get? Well, it’s wonderful: I send you charts. I examine your natal and current predictive astrology. Together we analyse what the Dark Goddess can bring you now – and how you can heal, empower – and work with Her.

See details of my wonderful worldwide readings see: www.starwheelastrology.com
For details of my expert worldwide courses, see: www.mastervedicastrology.com
Principles underlying my work are that I am always prepared to offer Western Astrology-Vedic Astrology crossover.
My courses are highly caring and totally individual focussing on two sets of charts: yours and mine, so as to keep the learning genuine, authentic and grounded.
And my work is never formulaic, but linked to healing and empowerment.

Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra 2017 – 2018

Michael Conneely

Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra Through 2017 – Early 2018

From October 2017 to March 2018 Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra (Mula Lunar Sign) at the start of Vedic Sagittarius. As you see in the Pt 1 video, this means we simultaneously have to honour the stern Lord Of Karma and duty as well as the Dark Goddess of Destruction and Inspiration: Niritti. And in the Pt. 2 video we also look at the huge and important effects for us as individuals that the change of sign of transiting Saturn means for people in creating Sade Sate, Ashtama Shani, Kal Sarpa Yoga and Gandanta: what do these terms mean? Their effects in our lives are huge and need to be clearly seen and understood. What Healing and Empowerment work may we need to do?

Saturn Meets the Dark Goddess (Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra) from 26th October 2017. Saturn and the Dark Goddess are such different gods, yet each of us has to work with, understand and benefit from this unlikely pairing until Mars 2018.

Saturn is the stern Lord of Karma. The Dark Goddess if the shape-shifter and weaver who brings us what we least expect, but for our own good, and she calls us to be strong and look her in the eye.

On 26th October 2017, Saturn leaves the Vedic sign of Scorpio, crosses the uncertain Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta Zone, and enters the Vedic Sign of Sagittarius – at the same time entering Mula Nakshatra, the 19th Vedic Lunar Sign, which is at the start of Vedic Scorpio, and which is ruled by Niritti, the Goddess of Death and Destruction.

The Nakshatras are the wonderful powerful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac. They declare our emotional reality and consciousness and our capacity for growth. And Nakshatra 19, Mula nakshatra, ruled by Niritti, is the abode of the dancing graveyard Goddess, whose gaze none of us can shirk from meeting with courage and truth.

So, this means that Until 2nd March 2018, while Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra, Saturn meets the Dark Goddess. And how opposite they are! They are Great Opposites:

Saturn is Lord of Karma, enforcer of discipline, hard work, patience and structure. He calls us to work on our Karmas and also to achieve the special spark and tasks we incarnated to achieve this time. Over time, he offers us the chance to purify!

Goddess Niritti is the dark apparently capricious apparently even destructive bringer of Chaos, bringer of Death: bringer of death of what must now die in our life. And sudden precipitous bringer of the new space we actually need now to allow in the needed totally new in our life.

Niritti dances all over our Saturn tram-lines. She shimmers shrieking into our consciousness showing us undreamt of whole new areas of rebirth and exploration, and she devastates now what must die in our life. In an instant, She offers us the chance to be strong! Her corybantic dance is the dance of death – and rebirth in our life. Are you strong enough to gain her respect? If not, can you benefit from this astrological perception now? Can you do needed healing or empowerment work now?

For more about how these two: Saturn and Niritti, can possibly get on in your life, see this two-part video and then read on below:

Here is Part 1:

Here is Part 2:

But be prepared to honour both. Be prepared to work hard and be diligent, yet ALSO absolutely be open to the whispers and chinks and tsunamis of new inspiration, death of some of the old in your life, and change!

I would say that the three Gandanta Zones of Vedic Astrology extend for at least two degrees either side of the transition from Water Signs to Fire Signs. As Saturn has been departing Vedic sign of Scorpio, which he finally leaves on 26th October, he has been extracting his ‘last drops’ of his divine message from each of us.

We have had to feel the final pain of his message that he was bringing us as he transited Vedic Scorpio since 3rd November 2017.

Now he will be transiting Vedic Sagittarius until 24th January 2020, and he will now be calling on us to work on a fresh facet of our Karmic Task: offering us Golden Reaping if we can succeed, but we do experience suffering if we are off-course in our life for Saturn’s demands.

Things that had been on hold, even from last year, will suddenly be brought to closure. Be prepared for change as Saturn transits through Mula Nakshatra

So, what are these three Gandanta Zones? Quite simply a Gandanta zone is where water sign dissolves away into a sort of void – the other side of which is the first flicker of a fire sign. And the Gandanta Zone itself realises that the World is not as supportive, real and substantial as most people think. They are born into the insubstantial. They lack confidence. They fear failure. This is a spiritual challenge to them: to heal and empower and strengthen any planet in a Gandanta Zone.

If Sun is there, father was not there for them – but you can do something about his and eventually succeed. If Moon is there, this means that Mother was not there for them, and probably this can’t be healed, so the supreme achievement is to learn to live with that. If you have planets in the Vedic Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta, Saturn is transiting conjunct them now, and work hard to heal and strengthen them now!

So, basically, in summary, note that in the months around either side of 26th October, Saturn is transiting through the Scorpio Gandanta Zone, and he is offering hard learning and strengthening to planets that some people will have there.

And note also that Rahu, the North Node of the Moon transited from Leo to Cancer at the time of the 21st August 2017 great eclipse: and so, Rahu is aspecting Saturn from one Gandanta to another and this has created Fear.

And also note that Uranus is transiting Retrograde through the Aries Gandanta, and Uranus nearly reaches Pisces in January 2018, when he turns Direct. So, planets in the Pisces-Aries Gandanta Zone are also being affected now. It’s a time for learning in what way this world is not real, and for possibility of great inspiration, and bringing in revolution. Jupiter is transiting opposition Uranus now: be open to great change.

A very difficult feature is that the Kal Sarpa Yoga has re-arisen. Kal Sarpa Yoga is when all the Vedic planets are to one side of the nodal axis and are hemmed in by it. This formation creates divisiveness and treachery. The Moon is within the Kal Sarpa for half of every month, and then the Moon is outside the planets grouping the other half of the month. This creates potential instability of mind, with the Moon unsupported half of every month. There’s big spiritual challenge in Kal Sarpa Yoga. It was in the heavens for a long time in 2016 at the time Donald Trump rose to power; by ‘coincidence’ it is in his birth chart. It ran into January 2017 before it ended. And from the eclipse of 21st August 2016 it has now re-asserted itself!

So who and what is the Dark Goddess?

She likes Chaos. Her allegiance is responsible to something beyond Saturn’s Order. Above all, She wants us strong. And she wants us open. She actually loves us. But she will not accept our weaknesses or our evasions. And she rips up comfort zones completely!

Please understand: She is not at all ‘adharmic’. She actually calls us to greater Dharma. And she does this by tearing up the formulaic and controlled spiritual definitions. She doesn’t care much for mantra which can turn people into robots thinking that they are spiritual. She doesn’t care for the formulaic graded spiritual paths. She laughs at the constructed hierarchies and sects and in-groups. She rips these apart to let in the Light!

SAMHAIN OR HALLOWEEN: And by weird and important coincidence, this time that Saturn transits to meet the Dark Goddess Niritti, it’s the time of Samhain or Halloween.

And I am writing this blog in the West of Ireland where lie Ireland’s most ancient sacred monuments, and by coincidence, it’s near here that the Irish War Goddess the Morrigan, mates every year at Samhain with The Dagda who is the Good God, and whose symbol is his cauldron of plenty. And, thus, She confers Sovereignty and Victory to that which is good and strong. And this is the same message as Saturn meets Niritti now!

We have to be open and strong, and hardworking and diligent, and be prepared to meet whatever comes and change direction, in which case, She will give us victory, and we will be strong.

Weak Sun in your Birth Chart and in October, November 2017

Michael Conneely

Weak Sun in your Birth Chart and in October & November 2017

This Blog from Michael Conneely is all about what it means to have a weak Sun in their Birth Chart – and what do you do about it?

The Sun is the King of our Kingdom; he is the Divine Charioteer that drives the Chariot of Self.

Yet some people’s destiny is to work with a Weak Sun: so how do they heal this? How do they Empower?

And more than these Weak Sun individuals, this Blog also actually speaks to ALL of us –

This is because the whole world will experience something of the energy-state that is a Weak Sun for the month starting October 17th, 2017, when the Sun enters the Vedic sign of Libra in the heavens and transits there for a month.

And this weakness to what the Sun stands for is because the Vedic Sign of Libra, using the divinely-accurate Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology, is the sign where the Sun is most deeply Fallen or Debilitated, where the Sun’s qualities are most weakened – even trashed.

NOTE: Even if the Sun’s Debilitation is ‘cancelled’ in your Vedic birth chart (e.g. because your Libran Sun is also in your 1st House), NOTE NEVER THE LESS, that you may well be also capable of being Me-First, BUT you will also MOST CERTAINLY have the weak Sun scripts. So, don’t try to overcompensate for your weak Sun root traits, because they will catch up with you

What does a Weak Sun mean in our life? Here are Examples:

1. Lack of confidence.

2. The person whose been taught they should be the glove that fits the Other’s hand.

3. Inability to speak your truth, so even seeming deceptive.

4. The Sun is the King of our Kingdom, he has to be able to fare forth and do the needed tasks. Weak Sun can’t do this.

5. Co-dependency scripts can set in.

6. The Sun is the Divine Charioteer who drives the Chariot of our Self. In his hands are the reins that go to the horse that pull the chariot. The Horses are the other planets. The Sun has to be strong enough to direct them, and strong enough to chart the needed course in life.

7. Weaker Vitality. Weaker health.

8. Can’t cope.

9. Beaten.

– There’ll be these symptoms big time if your Sun is weak in your birth chart – in other words if you have Sun in Vedic Libra, or Sun in 7th or 12th house, or in a Gandanta Zone, or where your Sun is harmed by a malefic effect from another planet.

– AND ALSO everyone will feel something of this in the month starting 17th October 2017, while the Sun is working his way through the sign of Vedic Libra.

Also do Note : for Vedic Librans, at this time, there could be sudden expenses and losses due to planets in 12th House from Libra (Vedic Virgo)

So: What should I do during the weak Sun month starting 17th October 2017?

Hear this perception.
Act on it.
Listen to your body.
Listen to your Feelings.
Eat well.
Don’t push too hard.
Physical Activity.

What else can I do?

Well, there are various options:

Deity Work: Note that I teach deity work worldwide. Men can gain so much from studying and working with such Gods as Cernunnos or The Dagda. Women can gain so much by working with Brigit. See my Druid Forest School Curses: www.druidforestschool.com.

Healing and Empowerment Work: Do any Healing Work that is needed. Se the worldwide Healing website of my partner: Maggie Pashley: www.maggiepashley.com. There’s such genuine worldwide Healing Methods as: EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, Access Consciousness, Emotion Code, Body Code, Hypnotherapy, just to name a very few.

See details of my wonderful worldwide readings see: www.starwheelastrology.com
For details of my expert worldwide courses, see: www.mastervedicastrology.com
Principles underlying my work are that I am always prepared to offer Western Astrology-Vedic Astrology crossover.
My courses are highly caring and totally individual focussing on two sets of charts: yours and mine, so as to keep the learning genuine, authentic and grounded.

Astrology and Guidance for October 2017 A sensitive time to be handled with care

Michael Conneely

Astrology and Guidance for October 2017:-
A sensitive time to be handled with care

October 2017 will be an unsettling even nervous time for many, and It’s good to have this detailed perception, so that you can manage the different areas in your life for the best, make the best decisions and finances, and manage your mind and emotions, and connect to healing and empowerment.

This forecast and guidance uses the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology, but as ever with my astrology, the outer planets, the ‘Gods of Change’ and of course Chiron the Wounded Healer are included, and charts are given below in both western astrology (which is a depiction of our egoic self and our psychological reality) and also Vedic Astrology (which is a depiction of our karmas and life purpose, of which our psychological self is but a part).

Note that all my extensive readings and courses are given with complete crossover of Vedic And Western Astrology.

The underlying principle is that the perception offered by Vedic and western astrology is vast, but formula and fadedness is to be avoided. The value of the perception is that it must underpin Healing and Empowerment work, and with my partner Maggie Pashley we offer many Healing modalities both at our Healing Centre in the West of Ireland and of course worldwide via the internet.

  1. Saturn is making his final transit this year through the Gandanta zone at the end of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. Gandanta  zone is a space of insubstantiality where water signs change to fire signs, but with the offer of inspiration and need for healing. Unfinished business will rise to be dealt with. Saturn will extract the final drops of his demands. Unexpected events will force detachment or change. Our minds will feel the insubstantiality. With Rahu at the end of Cancer creating a trine to Saturn in the Scorpio Gandanta, there may be great sensitivity and fear. People with planets in any of the three Gandanta Zones, or with a Capricorn/Aquarius emphasis in their charts will have major changes happen. If our lives have been held in limbo, from November, we can move forward
  2. The Nodes: Rahu and Ketu cause division and challenge to mental stability. This is because the Kal Sarpa Yoga that started last year has re-asserted itself: all the planets enclosed within the axis of the Nodes. The world will experience its divisiveness and dark forces. Remain Grounded. Don’t let unsettled feelings have power over you. Avoid making decisions if possible.
  3. Sade Sate: When Saturn transits the natal Moon: Sade Sate is a difficult time when Saturn transits the sign before your natal Moon, the sign occupied by your natal Moon and the sign after your natal Moon. People with Moon in Vedic Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn will be in different phases of Sade Sati. Exercise care. Handle the emotions. Take care with finances. Avoid getting over-tired or drained.
  4. Libra emphasis people have planets in the 12th house from itself, and also a debilitated Sun: You will need to deal with unconfident feelings of being weak and can’t cope or can’t prevail. There will be unexpected expenses. Make no financial decisions until November. Avoid overwhelm.
  5. Leo: There have been very difficult energies in Leo, including the recent 21st August eclipse and its ongoing aftermath, and people with malefic planets in Leo may have a lot to calm down from!!! Note that Neptune is transiting opposition Leo, so people with planets in Leo can experience some very negative &/or very positive inputs into their lives indeed as Neptune moves into the opposition orb of their natal planets in Leo. Understand the nature of Neptune (if you can)!

Key Guidance:
Remain vigilant.
Avoid making choices that may bring further disruption.
Keep your personal life steady and simple.
Remain grounded.
Don’t let instability have effect.

Planetary Summary:
Sun moves from Virgo to Libra.
Mercury Moves from Virgo to Libra. Mercury is Combusted by the Sun from October 9th to 31st. The next Mercury retrograde period is December 3rd to  22nd, with Mercury transiting backwards from Sagittarius to Scorpio.
Venus and Mars start off in Leo (and this often means fighting rather than passion!) then Venus move into Virgo.
Jupiter is at the start of a year-long transit in Libra bringing expansion, success and new horizons there.
Saturn moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, and as the transition of 26th October is neared this will feel like an anxious battlefield. Saturn will transit Sagittarius from October 25, 2017 to January 23, 2020.
Uranus is very slowly retrograding through early Aries, into the Gandanta at the start of Aries, in Ashwini Nakshatra.
Uranus is opposition aspect to planets in early Libra, so if you have planets there you will feel the effect: revolution, inspiration or sudden change.
If your Mercury is in early Libra this could be very good for inspired learning, due to the fact that Jupiter is transiting in Libra which would also affect Mercury.
Neptune is transiting at 18 Aquarius
Pluto has now at last gone direct at 22 Capricorn
The Nodes have recently changed signs at the time of the big August eclipse: Rahu North Node went through the Cancer-Leo Gandanta and has entered cancer for 18 months; Ketu South Node has entered Capricorn for 18 months.
Check the affairs of the house in your birth chart represented by Cancer and Capricorn: the Nodes transit there will have major effects on the affairs of the House they transit. For example if Rahu North Node is now tainting your 1st House you may be more ambitious, independent and assertive (but remember that you must not neglect your relationship); Rahu transiting your 2nd House might impel you to overspend and eat badly, etc.
Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is transiting retrograde at 2 Pisces though just stops short of retrograding back into Aquarius before he goes direct again.

October Calendar:

1 to 14 October – Mercury exalted

5 October – Venus Mars in planetary war

8 October – Mercury combust until 31st.

9 October – Venus moves into Virgo and is debilitated there until November 2nd

13 October – Mars enters Virgo transiting there until November 30th

14 October – Mercury enters Libra and is Parivatana with Venus which is in Virgo: these two planets are in each other’s signs which can bring financial and emotional improvement.

17 October – Sun enters Libra and is debilitated

26 October – Saturn moves into Sagittarius: his second and final transit Over Scorpio Sagittarius Gandanta zone this year.

5th October: Full Moon at 19° Pisces in Revati Nakshatra.

19th October: New Moon at 3° Libra in Chitra Nakshatra.

As the Moon moves from inside the Kal Sarpa Yoga to outside it, watch for the Moon being unsupported and thus weakening or worrying or even de-stabilising the Mind.

Samhain/Halloween: At the end of October we have the eve of Samhain, the ancient Celtic Festival now called Halloween. This was felt in the wisdom of the ancient Irish Druids to be a time when the veils between the worlds are thin, when unexpected darkness issues forth, and the Festival of the Dead. It was the time for the ancient Irish of the ritual mating of The Dagda, the Good God with The Morrigan the War Goddess, thus the forces of bounty and plenty were defended and protected and given sovereignty for the year ahead. This annual ritual mating was told of taking place near the Healing Centre we run in the West of Ireland. The two great deities met where the River Unshin leaves Loch Arrow near here and flows to the Ocean, nearby.

Shravana Nakshatra Number 22

Michael Conneely

Shravana Nakshatra Number 22 / A Worldwide Nakshatra CourseMichael Conneely

Shravana Nakshatra is the 22nd Nakshatra and spans 10°00′ to 23°20′ Vedic Capricorn. This Nakshatra is ruled by The Moon and its ruling deity is Vishnu – The Preserver of the Universe. Its Symbol is The Ear, or an arrow. Its power animal or Yoni is the Female Monkey – playfulness, lack of seriousness. Its Motivation is Artha – material wealth. in terms of Gunas, Shravana is primarily Rajasic: desirous and acting on the worldly plane.

The Nakshatras are the truly wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology that is such a sure declaration as to our emotional nature, our consciousness, our life scripts, our relationships and health astrology. See my Worldwide Astrology Readings which always include study of your Nakshatras:
www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreadin
and also my superb worldwide Nakshatras course:
www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com

The Principal Stars: Altair. One of three stars known as Head of the Eagle, or the three footprints of Vishnu. The Sun moves through Shravana from around January 24 to around February 6 of every year.

Shravana Nakshatra Key Words: The Listener, learner, knowledge quest. Informed. Persevering and shrewd. Goal orientated, and this becomes dangerous if their goals are unwholesome. They need to tone down their ego and be careful to do the right things. Can fall prey to deception and bad advice. they often have organizational ability which can be used for good or alternatively for destructive or degenerative ends. Sravanas often carry a cunning but well-mannered, alert look. They are good communicators. Good in media. They do need to be careful of propagating falsehood.

Positively, Shravana Nakshatra are intellectual, wise, good teachers, counsellors, amicable but calculating. More negatively, they are gossips and restless. Typically, they have an historical approach, heritage, tradition, travel, pilgrimage

Shravanas typically suffer troubles and disappointment – trust issues, especially in first half of life. They are sensitive and easily hurt. Thye can have feelings of inferiority that can be overcome with age.

Its heavenly basis emanates for seeking, which results in the paths, through which there is connection of all things.

Shravana Nakshatra nature is to be fierce and severe in a balanced way.

The ideal best spiritual path of Shravana is the way of listening and the gaining of knowledge.  This knowledge should lead to meditation (not only to knowledge of trivial facts).  The disciple may eventually become a guru himself who passes on knowledge.  This, therefore, is a meditative constellation.  Listening to the guru leads to becoming one with him and to meditation. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Sravana allows for connection. Shravanas are often fond of travel and living in foreign lands.

If you would like to learn more about Shravana, and all the other 27 Nakshatras of the Vedic Lunar Zodiac, this is so worthwhile. It offers such understanding of people. it is the key to relationships astrology and health astrology and many other functions in birth chart analysis and prediction. Enrol on my Nakshatras Course and study each Nakshatra in depth in relation to your chart and mine, plus family members and others.

Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra 21

Michael Conneely

Michael ConneelyUttara Ashadha Nakshatra 21 and Worldwide Nakshatra Course

Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra is one of the wonderful 27 Nakshatras:
The Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology. Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra spans: 26°40′ Sagittarius to 10°00′ Capricorn (Dhanus to Makara),

Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra is quite an uncompromising energy. It’s Ruler is The Sun – power, vitality, strength, leadership; its ruling deity are The Vishwadevas – The Universal Gods.
Uttara Ashadha’s symbol: Planks of a bed – not so good for marriage, not so comfortable, but a place to rest.
The Power animal/yoni: Mongoose – viciousness, speed.
Uttara Ashadha’s Motivation is Moksha – spiritual liberation. Its Caste is: Kshatriya, Warrior. Its nature is to be sharp and dreadful in an active way.
Translation: Mongoose means ‘unchallenged victory’. the latter invincible one.
Stars: The Four stars of Uttara Ashadha are in Sagittarius.

UTTARA ASHADHA Key Words:
Enduring, invincible, aggressive. can storm its way forward. Dogged persistence to succeed. Responsible. A challenger with a forceful path, who can have luck in the nick of time. Can be a lonely enduring path. Much more introspective than that the preceding Nakshatra, the showy Purva Ashadha. More warrior than Brahmin. They can get totally involved in their task. Can penetrate deeply into knowledge. They have innate leadership qualities and usually affluence. They are Law-abiding and religious, genial. patient, righteous and responsible. Methodical, sincere and calculating.

Note that 5° Capricorn is the exact debilitation degree for Jupiter, so the light of knowledge can be obscured as the individual becomes obsessed with paying karmic debts.

Jupiter rules the Sagittarius part of Uttara Ashadha, but Saturn rules the Capricorn part. Jupiter is about expansion, but Saturn is about contraction – and Jupiter is at his greatest debilitation in the Capricorn part of Uttara Ashadha. There is an energy in the Saturn part especially, of moderation and practicality, and there may be not too much hope, idealism or expansiveness. It is maybe a place for endurance and concrete action rather than words. Yet there can be misplaced idealism. Every error someone with emphasis in Uttar Ashadha makes is amplified due to the enormous capacity of this nakshatra to be of influence in the outside world. The emphasis here can be on concrete achievement. Nerves of steel. Exaggerated attention to worldliness or to power structures. Accumulation.

Basically, Uttara Ashadhas can have innate great integrity, and can be sincere, committed, ambitious. They fight for what they believe is right and practise what they preach. They often make advisors. Uttara Ashadhas have great stamina and constancy. If they are not fully engaged in a project, they can get apathetic.

They can be pioneering. They can be noted for a fresh start, honest, great insight, ambitious, but sometimes can fail to carry through

Uttara Ashada Nakshatra shows how actions are always victorious over ideas. Sagittarius preceding can be lazy, and idealistic about something that is not good.

The ruling deities of Uttara Ashadha are the universal gods that guarantee victory. It is where Sagittarius becomes Capricorn where hopes and inspirations become tangible realities.

Negativley, Uttarashadhas can be rigid, unbending, upholding. Can get self-centred and stubborn. Can have losses in early life, but more success as their life progresses.

N.B. Love Scripts of Uttara Ashadha:
This is the one of the 27 Lunar Signs or Nakshatras that has no natural mate, and thus is usually a very difficult life-script for marriage. Can have difficulties in marriage or sexual incompatibilities. The Uttara Ashadha symbol is the planks of a bed: an austere bed, not made for comfort. The hard bed reflects your austere attitude to relationships.

They like control so their partners can feel pushed out. Can go for material comfort and success, but not pleasure. They show stubborn, self-centred approach and can develop lack of interest in relationship.

Typically, Uttara Ashadhas can be composed and stoical. They tend to keep an emotional distance from others. They can have difficulty expressing warmth and love. Thay can have a difficult relationship with their father and this colours how they view love.

If Uttara Ashadhas are involved in something that bores or stresses them, they can become dull and lazy. There is a self-indulgent streak within them that defies your otherwise austere nature.

Uttara Ashadhas have complex Sexuality. The animal symbol of Uttara Ashadha is the mongoose. There is no female mongoose in the Nakshatra animal signs. For Uttara Ashadhas, therefore, there are no ideal partners. Often they have no instinctive understanding of your sexuality. To fulfil their spiritual path, they can have to learn to compro­mise on their sexuality.

Typically, to hide their lack of sexual confidence and low self-esteem, Uttara Ashadhas appear active and bold. If they fancy someone you make a play for them. You are fast workers and can get involved very quickly. But once they are involved, it can become very clear that they do not know what to do with their lovers. Not having an ideal mate in the Nakshatra system hinders Uttara Ashadha’s sexual knowledge. They can be passionate yet cold, self-indulgent yet ascetic. The right partner is one who accepts their intrinsic spiritu­ality and makes them comfortable with their sexuality.

Uttara Ashadhas hate secrecy or deception so you set high standards for their partners and if they fail, can be very aggressive and will not wait till they have rooted out their dishonesty. They need to avoid becoming suspicious for the sake of it. And as they are plain-speaking and direct, they may not understand harmless wiles and sexual play from others. it can be that they can’t be bothered and choose to lead the life of an ascetic. In a woman’s chart, this person may opt for a practical marriage or marriage for money.

find their partners are too ascetic, boring or not much fun, especially if planet occupies pada 2 of Uttar Ashadha.

Favorable: Uttara Ashadha earns a good living; believes in charitable giving; brave; does well in foreign countries; good conversationalist; enjoys music and dance; good organizational abilities; ambitious, motivated to accomplish things and develop their careers; likes old and mysterious things; could be skilled in astrology

Unfavorable: Uttara Ashadha cane be self-seeking, aggressive; worried; capable of hurt­ing others; makes up stories; deceptive in that they will either say what is not so, withhold information, or understate matters; don’t like to be told what to do; argumentative; too talkative; select mates who often are very different in personality and outlook

The symbol of Uttara Ashadha, a tooth, is a sharp thing and analogous to this Uttara Ashadha has a keen intel­lect, which enables him to see through the wrong ways of the ego.  The elephant is an animal with a great, posi­tive strengt­h.  A person in whose horo­scope Uttara Ashad­ha plays an impor­tant role is challenged to use that strength.

Purva Ashadha Nakshatra Number 20

Michael Conneely

Purva Ashadha is the 20th Nakshatra in the wonderful, powerful and surely declarative 27-sign
Lunar Zodiac of vedic astrology: The Nakshatras.

The Nakshatras are the truly wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology that is such a sure declaration as to our emotional nature, our consciousness, our life scripts, our relationships and health astrology.
Purva Ashadha Nakshatra spans: 13°20′ to 26°40′ Vedic Sagittarius. Purva Ashadha is ruled by Venus and its Deity is: Apas, the Water God. Its symbol is: The Elephant’s Tusk, or the fan, and its translation is: The Former Unsubdued. Purva Ashada Nakshatra means “early victory”. Its Power Animal/Yoni: Male Monkey. Its motivation is: Moksha. Its Ayurvedic Dosha: Pitta, and its Quality is: Fierce.
The Principal Stars of Purva Ashadha Nakshatra are: An- Naaim. PurvaAshada lies entirely within the Constellation of The Archer: Sagittarius. It consists of two stars in angle to the third star: Kaus Borealis and Kaus Australis are in angle to Kaus Media. Hence the shape of the Archer’s bow or the fan.

Purva Ashadha Nakshatra Key Words:

Strength and Victory. Invincible: they smash through anything in their way. Proud, independent. Obstinate and can’t be influenced by others. The fan denotes superiority. Here’s a list of key words that Purva Ashadas need to often learn about so as to purify and heal their natures:

They have an intense conviction that they cannot lose and they have the ability to come out on top – and a times this can be misplaced or positively malign for the effect they will have on others. it is not an impatient energy; but it is implacable – and can of course be unrealistic or inappropriate. Fearless and controlling. Social climbers. Oratorical, obstinate and aggressive. They are full of their own opinions and judgmental

They are blind to their own flaws and in self-denial; they are often creative and talented. And they are noted for getting supported through many friends.

They are orientated towards Moksha or spiirtuality, but in their search for Moksha, they are over-expansive and their overexpansion and opinionated nature can crush or disregard others.

Their Pitta orientation makes them fiery and forceful, inspirational and charismatic.

Their rulership by Venus can so often tend them to pursue illusion and deception, and because this couples with their mental aggression, the resultant mix is unstoppable.

They tend to develop influence, ambitious and fearless, always improving, ambitious to improve their life situation.

They have deep emotions. They are philosophical, confrontational, angry, harsh.

As regards spiritual path, this Nakshatra can be formulaic and implacable, devotional but dogmatic. They can have a deeply philosophical or religious nature, but they do need to strip away their ego otherwise their spiritual path can crush others.

They have an ability to influence the masses.

Purva Ashadha can bring fame, wealth, fertility and wisdom.

They can have flashes of inspiration and insight. There can be phases or purification and regeneration. The meaning of life can suddenly be revealed to them. They need to maintain purity, but often a false purity becomes a supreme and destructive agenda.

If you would like to learn more about Purva Ashadha, and all the other 27 Nakshatras of the Vedic Lunar Zodiac, this is so worthwhile. It offers such understanding of people. it is the key to relationships astrology and health astrology and many other functions in birth chart analysis and prediction.

Vishakha Nakshatra 16 and worldwide Nakshatra Course

Michael Conneely

Vishakha The Vehement Nakshatra 16 and worldwide Nakshatra Course

Vishakha Nakshatra  spans 20°00′ Vedic Libra to 3°20′ Vedic Scorpio. It’s nature is triumphant and vehement, but when the Vishakha Nakshatra person has learned their life lessons, they can become the ethical stalwart who holds together families, groups and situations.

The Nakshatras are the truly wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology that is such a sure declaration as to our emotional nature, our consciousness, our life scripts, our relationships and health astrology.

See my Worldwide Astrology Readings which always include study of your Nakshatras:
www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreading
and also my superb worldwide Nakshatras course:
www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com

Vishakha Nakshatra planetary Ruler is: Jupiter, who offers purpose and divine guidance
The Ruling Deity or Devata is: Agni, the God of Fire and Indra, the King of Gods and god of War, storms and rainfall. The Divine energy of transformation.
Vishakha’s Symbol is: The Triumphant Arch.
And most appropriately, Vishakha’s Power Animal or Yoni is: The Male Tiger (would you mess with this one???)
The Principal Star is: Az Zubanan – the Claws of Scorpio.

Vishakha Nakshatra – Keywords:

The poisons of past lives can be stored here. They can be aggressive, dictatorial and utterly ruthless. Obsessional, introverted and secretive. Fixation and decisive dedication. Their obsessions can burn them up and harm those dear to them. They are quarrelsome with loads of suppressed anger and hurt, bitterness and resentfulness. They are very easily angered! Their eyes are always fixed on their goal(s). Sometimes the goals are unwholesome. They are insatiable and the grass can always be greener on the other side!
But Vishakhas can slowly grow in influence and at their ideal best self-realisation, they thus ripen. They have to show Patience, persistence and determination. There’s a sense of ploughing and cultivation in their lives.

Favorable: Clever; has respect for intelligent and spiritual people; enterprising; self-satisfied; determined; gets things done; can appear soft but is very powerful underneath; sexually alluring; a good mate in marriage; benefits through marriage, traveling, and through change; mathematical talent. These people can be cultured and with dignity, influential and honest. Vishakhas at their best show good manners and become influential people. They can be religious or spiritual.

Unfavorable: Overly talkative; nice until they get what they want; negative, speaks negatively about others, fault-finding; not open to advice; offensive and not easy to like; greedy, deceitful, aggressive, domineering, quick to take offense, militant, suspicious, possessive, envious; feels obstructed and taken advantage of by others.

Key Guidance: For some­one in whose horoscope Vis­hakha plays an impor­tant role, much depends on the goals he sets for him­self.  If these objec­ti­ves are self-centred, he may become unbeara­ble for other people and may head towards the wrong direction.  Vishak­ha is always totally de­voted in order to reach his goals.  He has great cou­rage and ambiti­on. The path suitable to Vishakha is the way of the warrior, like that of Krittika.  The Vishakha has to find out for him­self whether his goals actually serve all of humanity or solely his own good.  The outcome of this will determine how this con­stellation will manifest itself: as a curse or as a bles­sing.

Big Saturn Transits 2017 Really Important Guidance also including Uranus and North Node

Michael Conneely

On Midsummer Solstice 2017, the day, I am writing this Blog Post, there is a big Saturn transit.

Saturn Transits 2017

The effects will last until the end of November 2017.

In fact this is one of three big Transits in 2017, also including Uranus and Rahu the North Node of the Moon

For the second of three times in 2017, Saturn now crosses one of the three difficult, dangerous and very sensitive Gandanta Zones in Vedic Astrology. Though do also note that these Gandanta zones can also be inspired as well as difficult, dangerous or sensitive!

So, today, Saturn Retrogrades from the Vedic sign Sagittarius to the Vedic sign Scorpio. Saturn is at 0 degrees Vedic Sagittarius, then 29 degrees Vedic Scorpio. This is 24 degrees Western Sagittarius

On 26th January 2017, Saturn transited forward from vedic Scorpio into Vedic Sagittarius, but then he turned retrograde and today he re-enters vedic Scorpio, and will not get back into Vedic Sagittarius again until 26th October 2017.

So, this means, first, that today and the week or so either side, as Saturn actually makes the Sagittarius-Scorpio sign transition, you may be feeling very sensitive, depending on your particular birth chart details.

And do note ABOVE ALL, there is something much more MAJOR: we will all be called by Saturn to finish off. often MAJOR, DIFFICULT UNFINISHED OFTEN KARMIC BUSINESS AND ISSUES, that were raised all the time when Saturn was earlier transiting through Vedic Scorpio, in other words from 3.11.2014 to 26.1.2017.

These three Gandanta Zones are the two degrees either side of the three transition points from a Water Sign to a fire Sign in Vedic Astrology. So, these are: Scorpio/Sagittarius, Pisces/Aries and Cancer/Leo. Remember the closer the planet is to the zero point of the actual transition, the bigger the Gandanta effect on the planet (natally or by predictive transit). And note that as I am writing this Blog Post, Saturn is actually at zero degrees Vedic Sagittarius. The exact Gandanta hinge. Let’s now look at all three huge Gandanta Transits of 2017, and try to note what we should do about them.

The Three Gandanta Transits 2017:

There are three major Gandanta transits in 2017: I here assess their effects both in terms of the 12-sign Vedic Sidereal Zodiac, but also the wonderful 27-sign Vedic Lunar Zodiac: The 27 Nakshatras.

The three big Gandanta transits of 2017 are:

1. Saturn transits three times in 2017 through the Scorpio/Sagittarius Gandanta. As I said, in terms of the Vedic 12 Sign Sidereal Zodiac this Gandanta spans Scorpio/Sagittarius. But in terms of the 27-sign Lunar Zodiac, the Nakshatras, this Gandanta spans Jyestha Nakshatra (at the end of Vedic Scorpio) to Mula Nakshatra (at the start of Vedic Sagittarius). This is a severe gandanta known as Abhukta Mula Gandanta.

2. Uranus is transiting the Pisces/Aries Gandanta. In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this Gandanta is the Revati – Ashwini Gandanta. This is 24 degrees Western Aries.

3. Rahu, The North Node of the Moon  transits into the Cancer/Leo Gandanta with two eclipses! In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this Gandants i the Ashlesha – Magha Gandanta. The is 24 degrees Western Leo.

Here are the details of the three gandanta transits of 2017:

1. Saturn transits the Scorpio/Sagittarius Jyestha/Mula Gandanta zone three times in 2017. and Saturn will still be in this Gandanta Zone in November 2017.

And, as I said, in terms of the Vedic 12 Sign Sidereal Zodiac this Gandanta spans Scorpio/Sagittarius, but in terms of the 27-sign Lunar Zodiac, the wonderful Nakshatras, this is the transition today covers the space in the heavens from Jyestha Nakshatra (at the end of Vedic Scorpio) to Mula Nakshatra (at the start of Vedic Sagittarius).

This is a severe gandanta known as Abhukta Mula Gandanta.

Importantly, note that Jyestha Nakshatra is the end of the second materially-orientated ‘Tamas’ group of Nine nakshatras, but being on the transition point into Mula which is the first of the nine Sattvic or spiritually orientated Nakshatras, this raises a torsion challenge from Saturn. He has to change his duty form Tamas materiality to Sattva spirituality, and we will all of us feel this torsion.

Saturn crossed the difficult Gandanta Zone between Scorpio and Sagittarius around 26th January 21st June. He’s now re-entered Scorpio. But he will cross back into vedic Sagittarius for the final time on 26th October 2017.

This meant that when Saturn transits into Mula/Sagittarius in January 2017, there was a tide towards Sattva/Spiritualit, yet the Tamas or materiality tide will run now again from June to October 2017.

But is also means that, very importantly people will find that things left unfinished from Saturn’s transit through Scorpio from 3.11.2014 to 26.1.2017. and often these things will be very, very tough, because Saturn is Lord of Karma, and he is a severe planet. He seeks to call us to our spiritual meaning and destiny, not caring, of course, if this is tough!

And note also that there will be a Saturn-Ketu/South Node Exchange of signs or ‘Parivartana Yoga’ from 21st June to 18th August, when Saturn will be transiting Scorpio as the Ruler of Aquarius, and at the same time Ketu will be transiting Aquarius as the co-ruler of Scorpio. So, this could mean big effects in your life depending on the areas of life covered by Scorpio and Aquarius in your birth chart: what Houses they are in your birth chart.

Note that Saturn ceases his current retrograde and turns direct on 25th August 2017 when he is at 27 deg Scorpio 04.

So, what does it mean if we have a planet in one of the three Gandanta zones???

Note that for you natal Moon to be in one of the Gandanta Zones, in your birth chart, will have a very tough effect on your life as regards Mother issues; the nearer to the zero point sign transition point the Moon is the worse will be the effect in our lives. Indeed, to have Moon in the Gandanta normally means that it will be the case that the difficult Mother issues can’t be resolved, so your karmic challenge is to learn to live with them.

Note especially that for a woman to have Moon in the Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta Zone, which is called the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, this is very difficult for marriage or for mothering issues, and for effects on how she will mother any children she may have or adopt, as this position for the Moon in her own chart seriously means that her Mother will not be there for her, her mother will not be there to mother her. And she may very definitely pass it on – unless she heals, if she can heal!

Indeed, if it’s a case of New Moon in the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, this means it’s even worse, because both Sun and Moon are there in the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, and there are very difficult father issues for the person there as well as lack of a mother who has a settled enough mind to mother.

But note in addition to these meanings for the Moon in a Gandanta Zone, that for any planet to be in any of the three Gandanta Zones in your birth Chart, means that there will be a very serious challenge to the solidity and nature of that planet in your life.

But please note that so long as that planet is not the Moon, then you can definitely do a lot to heal and empower the planet, and even better, you can learn to utilise the sensitive inspiration side of the Gandanta energy to fuel that planet’s healed expression in your life.

This is why in my Astrology Readings, and also in my Astrology Courses, I always teach astrology that avoids formula or fatalism, and is always geared to healing and empowerment.

Let’s move on to the Second Gandanta Transit of 2017: Uranus:

Uranus transited the Pisces to Aries Revati/Aries Gandanta Zone in 2017, first entering it in May 2106, and Uranus will still be at 0 deg Aries in January 2018, and won’t finally leave the Gandanta Zone until March 2018.

It was Uranus entering Aries/Ashwini 84 years ago that led to the burning of the Reichstag which was followed by the rise of Adolph Hitler that led to terrible World War.

I am not saying that everyone will handle the energy of Uranus entering Vedic Aries/Ashwini Nakshatra in the way that Adolph Hitler did, but some definitely will try to handle it that way. And i pray that coutries where there’s fundamentalist religion do not have a guru or prophet arise, as happened with Germany in the run up to World War 2. A Prophet could unite currently fighting fundamentalist states. It would just like August 24th  410 AD when the Roman Empire was wiped out because the Huns, the Visigoths and the Vandals united and they crossed the Rhine (which had frozen over) marshed South, destroyed the City and ended the Roman Empire. Is the West now also waiting for the Barbarians as imperial Rome was?????

But as i said, not everyone handles the energy of Uranus entering the Vedic Sign of Aries in the way Adolph Hitler did. And, indeed, when Uranus reached my natal Moon at 29 Pisces in 2016, I suddenly experienced revolution and emigrated!

Uranus will occupy the Gandanta degree four times:
28.6.16
31.8.16
8.4.17
2.1.18 (just short of the zero point)

But also note most importantly, there is also a very important transiting Jupiter- Uranus opposition: Jupiter in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries, exact, on these three dates:

  1. December 27, 2016 at Western 20 degrees Libra-Aries (Vedic 26 Virgo to 26 Pisces)
    2. March 7, 2017 at 22 degrees. (Vedic 27 Virgo to 27 Pisces)
    3. September 27, 2017 at 27 degrees (Vedic 3 Libra to 3 Aries).

Uranus-Jupiter is a blessed exapnsion energy if it’s on top of one of the planets in your brith chart, and it’s good for the sign it’s in in your birth chart.

And now Gandanta Transit 3 of 2017: Rahu, the North Node of the Moon: 
Rahu/North Node enters the Leo to Cancer gandanta. In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this is the Ashlesha/Magha Gandanta. Tough note that the actual transit sequence is: Magha/Ashlesha. This is because the nodes have backwards/retrograde motion in the heavens. And this Nodal Gandanta crossing occurs on 10th July 2017. Rahu is caught up in the gandanta eclipse of 7th and 21st August 2017.

Rahu then enters vedic Cancer 18th August, finally leaving the last two degrees of Cancer which it enters, the Cancer/Leo Gandanta zone on 24th September 2017

BUT THIS GANDANTA CROSSING HAS VERY BIG COMPLICATIONS: There are eclipses there on 7th August 2017 and on 21st August 2017.

In the eclipse of 7th August 2017, Rahu is deep in the Gandanta at 0 Leo 32.

In the eclipse on 21st August 2017, Rahu is still deep in the Gandanta at 29 degrees 48 Cancer. Sun and Moon are at 4 deg Leo and Mars is conjunct Rahu at 26 deg cancer

AND. as i said, THIS GANDANTA CROSSING HAS BIG COMPLICATIONS FOR DONALD TRUMP AND THE USA: This eclipse Sun/Moon New Moon is right on top of Donald Trump’s Mars at 3 deg Leo and his Ascendant at 6 Leo. What will happen to him and the USA?

And this Gandanta Crossing and eclipse means that Kal Sarpa Yoga will re-arise. It was present during 2016 and into January 2017 together with two other terrible energies which saw British Brexit, The Death of Jo Cox and the election of Donald Trump in USA. Kal Sarpa yoga means that all planets are caught up divisivley to one side of the Nodal Axis. The first Kal Sarpa Yoga for 2017 began around 28.9.2016 with this first Kal Sarpa event ending 20.1.2017.

After the Gandanta crossing of the North Node, Rahu, I refer to above, Kal Sarpa Yoga re-arises a second time on 17.9.17 and holds in force until 8.1.18.
Kal Sarpa Yoga will continue on and off until 2019, as Jupiter and Saturn are on one side of the Rahu – Ketu axis, in fact it will continue until 14.12.2019 (date depending a little on definition). So, whenever the faster planets are also one side, Kal Sarpa Yoga will be created.
And by weird stroke of destiny, Donald trump has Kal Sarpa Yoga in his birth chart!!!!!!

Kal Sarpa Yoga creates divisiveness, paranoia, unrest, uncertainty and insecurity, and problems of management of the Mind.

Of course, it is so important to note that a more spiritually advanced individual can handle the Kal Sarpa energies, and so (as often is the case in Vedic Astrolgoy) a curse is found to be a blessing!

Spiritual Note: 

In fact, the Gandanta Zones are portals where we can pass from this material realm and see that it is actually not as substantial as we thought, that it is in fact Maha Maya, the Great Illusion, and that the true reality lies beyond: that the true reality is the Shiva-Shakti realm, endless creative mating where the universe is sustained. Or it can be likened to Lord Vishnu dreaming in ecstasy dreaming new universes in and out of being. Or it can be likened to the dance of lord Shiva Nataraja, who dances encircled in flames, creating, sustaining, then destroying, universes in and out of being as he dances on the supine form of Aparasmara: the demon of ignorance!

Abhukta Mula – special footnote: The Gandanta at the end of Jyestha, as well as the Gandanta at the start of Mula which is the next Nakshatra, is a very bad place to have the Moon and is traditionally seen as a barrier for a woman to get married. I have known cases where certainly woman with Moon in Gandanta very much should not have got married, both because on what they do to their husbands, and because they can destroy their children and then look good nursing the wreckage. See more detail about Abhukta Mula above. This difficulty is created by the problems the woman’s mother would have been having at the time of the birth of her daughter, and because the daughter would have to go through predictive period change or ‘Dasa change’ very young: too young to be able to cope with it.

Gandanta special Note: HEALING AND EMPOWERMENT It is crucial that the foregoing observations about Gandanta placement of planets must not be used in a fated or formulaic way, such as harms so much Indian or western-received vedic astrology. All these instances are prompts for us to heal and empower ourselves, and this is the foundation of my astrology readings and courses. I work with my partner Maggie Pashley who is qualified in countless worldwide healing modalities.
