Astrology and Healing Magazine: June 2018

Welcome to the June 2018, sixth Edition of Maggie Pashley and Michael Conneely’s: Astrology and Healing Magazine.
This is brought to you from their Healing Centre on the wild Atlantic way coast of Sligo in the West of Ireland.

And this month’s Healing issue covers Overcoming Fears and Phobias.

Plus, clear and empowering inspirational expression of the Astrology of June 2018.

There’s a video to go with each section: the healing and the astrology.

MAGGIE PashleyMaggie Pashley on Overcoming Fears and Phobias

Fears and phobias can have a devastating and limiting effect on our lives and also that of our family and loved ones. A fear of flying can make the prospect of long-distance travel, either for business or pleasure a nightmare. A phobia of spiders can make us incapacitated whenever we see one, which can become even more of an issue if we are parents to young children. In fact, we can pass on a phobic reaction to our children. Career prospects and promotions can be stymied by fear of public speaking or freezing up in an interview situation, despite being more than qualified for the role. And of course, there are many phobias that people can try hard to keep hidden out of shame as they appear so silly or irrational.

And yet, phobias can often be dissolved quickly despite having plagued us for decades. This may seem surprising but it only took a moment to create one in the first place. One dramatic painful incident such as a sudden bite from a dog can make us wary of all dogs, make us avoid situations where we are likely to have to come into close contact with one.  A phobia is much stronger and reactive than a fear and can be even life-threatening as a phobic does anything to get away from whatever they are terrified of, without considering the consequences. It is pointless to try to rationalise with somebody having a phobic reaction eg ‘it’s only a little spider, it’s probably more frightened of you etc’ as the rational part of them is completely off-line.

Our limbic system, and especially the right amygdala, that part of our brain which responds to sudden stresses, fires off when we are faced with a potentially dangerous situation.  If there is no real threat then the amygdala should then return to stand-by. For example, we hear a loud noise realise it’s just an engine backfiring and it’s nothing to do with us and our amygdala can calm down again. In a trauma situation the amygdala does not calm down but is constantly being activated, and it is like the danger is still present. That frightening experience is lodged into the right hemisphere of our brain which can continue to fuel it with our imagination and catastrophise. Moreover, our right hemisphere has no sense of time so it cannot date stamp the experience and put it into the past, nor can it apply logic to put it into perspective.

So to just try to desensitisation to a phobia, is more or less teaching somebody to feel more comfortable with discomfort. It does not generally change the underlying response and it takes a lot of energy.

What I have realised is, it is important is create a lasting change in that response and freedom from that fear or phobia is to work energetically and specifically to create a cross-hemispheric communication so that the left brain can date stamp the experience, can put it into the past and can apply some logic.

The approach that I like using for fears and phobias is called Psy-TaP which offers rapid techniques for dealing with fears and phobias. This often includes the use of a light-pen or light sabre to facilitate that left-right brain integration of an experience and turn it from a horror story into a simple memory. It also includes other practical techniques designed to give rapid shifts from unwanted behaviours and install new and positive ones. And without that old phobia, we are naturally going to be freer and safer and more able to get on and make the most of life.

And here is my video:

Michael Conneely on: The Astrology of June 2018

First of all, here’s my video. This is followed a six-point Summary of some main topics for the Astrology of June 2018, and after that comes the full detail:

1.The Challenge to the Stability and Calm of your Mind (and the opportunity) created in that the Moon has to take six days passing through three malefic-energy signs in a row each month. Tantrums, hissy-fits and walk-outs, or being aware of the need to avoid these?

2.The Challenging sharp malefic energy of the MarsKetu/South Node conjunction in Vedic Capricorn, which has potentials for sharp, violence, rise in the murder rate, terrorism, technical skill, grumbling, anger, and/or:
If you are skilled: the development of your Magical Will!
And note that the energies are building to the earthquake strikes of the Eclipses of 13th and 27th July, indeed where the 27th July eclipse is conjunct the Mars-Ketu/South Node conjunction!
Which House in your Vedic chart does the Mars-Ketu conjunction and the 27th July fall in? And what are the affairs of that House? And how will you handle this? We will feel the eclipses energy gathering from mid-June onwards. Do check out my 2018 astrology web page to see where these July eclipses are in the heavens and to check out what areas of your life might be subject to earthquake, and of course to see, now, if things are too stuck and tense, and you need to alter things in your life.

3.There’s a difficult transit of Venus, where Venus is transiting first in opposition to Saturn and Pluto, then conjunct Rahu/North Node and in opposition Mars-Ketu/South Node. Venus is conjunct Rahu exact, and opposition Mars exact, on 20th June. And – no it’s not true what they say. The Venus-Mars combination is NOT good for love, nor even for passion! See the photo!

 

 

 

4.The lightning-bolt wielder: the Revolution-bringer God Uranus, transits opposition Jupiter, as Venus transits opposition Mars (on the Nodal axis), these two crossed oppositions creating a ferociously divine opportunity of a Cardinal Cross in the Heavens, now.

5. Mercury transits opposition Saturn and Pluto. Mercury is opposition Saturn exact on 16th June and opposition Pluto exact on 23rd June. Will this be deep knowledge, or travel problems and IT disruptions?

6. Neptune is very powerful all month due to his slowing to stationary on 19th June, then turning retrograde. How will this affect you? Vision or delusion? Neptune’s retrograde lasts five months.

7. New Moon 13th June, Full Moon 28th June.

For the planets’ movement in June 2018, please see the Tables, below, and also my 2018 astrology website pages.

Now, here’s more detail on the topics of the Astrology of June 2018:

1.Challenge to the Stability and Calm of your Mind: The big news for June 2018 is that three malefic Houses in a row have been created, and this makes for a period of six days each month when the Moon passes through a prolonged turbulent area in space, that will challenge the stability of our minds.
These three consecutive Vedic signs are: The Vedic sign of Scorpio (which always opens the Moon and therefore our mind to hurts, turbulence and conflicts), the Vedic sign of Sagittarius (where retrograde Saturn is transiting, as well as Pluto) and then the Vedic sign of Capricorn where the cutting energy of Mars and Ketu/South Node grows ever closer.
The two sets of dangerous dates in June are May 28thwhen there’s the Full Moon in Vedic Scorpio to June 3rd. then: June 24thto 30th.
This is such useful warning to receive. Our task is to use this foreknowledge to avoid turbulence, hurt and conflict!

The remaining dangerous days while this three-fold sequence lasts in the heavens are;

July 21th to 27th.
August 18th to 23rd.
September 14th to 20th.
October 11th to 18th.

2. Mars-Ketu in Capricorn: Mars in Capricorn is good for technical skills, real estate, power, discipline and courage, but it’s also warrior energy. Mars is exalted in Capricorn – but Exalted planets can be over-powerful. They can damage their House or they can damage other planets. In my readings and course, I teach the use of Avasthas which give good quick guidance as to the standing of your planets and the ways your planets treat each other.  Mars turns Retrograde on 26th June, then Direct on 27th August, so Mars is actually in Vedic Capricorn an exceptional time, until Nov 6th.
But be very careful not to let your life get out of hand when we remember the twist to the tale, namely that Ketu is also transiting Vedic Capricorn, and be very careful around the date when this conjunction is exact on 13th June. This has potential for violence, murders and terrorism.
But it also has intuition and also great technical skill potential, and in fact a magical energy work energy, and I have started teaching a Magical Energy Work Course, aimed at providing means to create healing/empowering Vision, and also intensify that vision and develop your ways of holding on to and sustaining your healing and empowering vision (rather than let it get forgotten, or its energy trickle away into the sands. Fourteen people are already working on it. Email me for details if you feel it would assist you.

With Rahu/North Node transiting through Vedic Cancer, issues of fears, security, safety and nurturance surface to eb understood and worked with. Check out which House in your Vedic birth chart is Cancer to understand this transit of Rahu, the North Node of the Moon.

Mars retrograde: Watch out for your initiatives going awry or having delays or hiccups, SETBACKS AND OUTBURSTS, when Mars turns retrograde around June 25th onwards.

3.Your Vedic Predictive Periods: Of course, Transits are not at all the whole of Vedic Predictive Astrology. There’s the wonderful and powerful Vedic Predictive periods and sub-periods, the Dasas, and also Varshaphal or Solar Returns. And in Western Astrology, I also use the Individuation Age Points and the Nodal Age points of Psychodynamic Astrology, plus of course Lunar Returns (DFY Progression or Secondary Progressions). Get in touch with me for an Astrology Reading, or to join one of my Astrology Courses.

4. Venus and Mercury combine well up to June 9th to bring beauty and singing, pleasant communication and creativity and harmonious relationships, as Venus begins June in Mercury’s sign of Vedic Gemini and Mercury begins June in Venus’ sign of Vedic Taurus. This is an exchange of signs. And on June 9, both Venus and Mercury change signs, Venus into Vedic Cancer and Mercury into Vedic Gemini. Mercury moves quickly through his own sign of Vedic Gemini, and on June 25, Mercury joins Venus in Vedic Cancer for a long-running transit in that sign, where of course Rahu/North node is also transiting. Mercury Transits Cancer June 25th – September 2nd.

5.Sun Transits Vedic Gemini June 15 – July 16 and all this while he receives a restrictive opposition from Saturn in Vedic Sagittarius, exact on June 27th.

6. Uranus transits bring Revolution. Ignore the call and be left a robot! In addition, if you are ages 20-22; 40-43; 60-62 and 82-84 you are feeling the effects of transiting Uranus forming powerful aspects to Uranus in your birth chart.

The orbital period of Uranus is 84 years. So, the last time he was transiting here (6 Vedic Aries, 1 western Taurus) was when the Second World War was starting.

7.Jupiter and Neptune are in trine, which can be intuitive and visionary. Neptune is stationary this month, at 22 Vedic Aquarius, in PurvaBhadra Nakshatra. The exact date of station is June 18th. Do check out which House in your chart for the area of life where stationary Neptune will be powerful. Check out your current transits of Neptune to your natal planets. Neptune transits can be totally life-changing for good or ill.

8.Mercury, Neptune and Jupiter form a Grand Trine in Water from 19thto 21stJune. You can see this in the following western astrology chart for 19thJune:

 

A Grand Trine in Water points to an intuitive energy, but you have to work on, harvest and ground it. In my readings and courses, I teach a vast array of interpretation of Chart Aspect Shapes as part of Psychosynthesis Astrology. Psychosynthesis was created by Robert Assaglione.

9. Pluto is at 26 Vedic Sagittarius. I use the Age Points of psychodynamic western astrology in my courses and readings. My Nodal age point is aspecting my natal Pluto at present. The Nodal Age point tells you ‘The Whisper of your Soul to you’ now. I am feeling such empowerment.

10. Chiron has recently entered Western Aries. This is so valuable to study as it raises for us to identify and heal: existential wounds to our self-expression.

11.The Grand Cross:

Here’s the Vedic then Western Chart for 23rd June. You can clearly see the Grand Cross:

 

 

 

Uranus is opposite Jupiter
And Venus-Rahu/North Node is opposition Mar-Ketu/South Node.
In very summary, this is expansionary for people with planets in Vedic Aries and Libra. Seize your opportunity.
But Rahu makes Venus driven, and Mars opposition Venus is maybe more prone to anger in relationship than true passion or love.

The fact that Uranus is squaring Mars, and Ketu is conjuncting Mars will lead to violence and earthquakes.

Astrology and Healing Magazine May 2018

Michael Conneely

Astrology and Healing Magazine May 2018

Welcome to the May 2018 fifth Edition of Maggie and Michael’s Astrology and Healing Magazine, brought to you from their Healing Centre on the wild Atlantic way coast of Sligo in the West of Ireland.

This month’s issue covers the Healing modality of Befriending Your Unconscious Mind.

Plus clear and empowering inspirational expression of the Astrology of May 2018, especially:
Key dates to watch the working of your mind
and also
Understanding two key opportunities for developing occult insight and your necessary personal magical Will.

Astrologically speaking, the big theme for May 2018 (and beyond up to November) is:
1. that Mars enters Vedic Capricorn to create a conjunction there with Ketu, which is square Uranus.
2.  Saturn remains transit in Sagittarius.
3.  the Moon always faces challenge affecting the management of our minds, each month, when it goes through the sign of Vedic Scorpio.
So, note that what is created now, until November, is a sequence of three malefic signs for the Moon to pass through each month so as to create a big and palpable three-sign challenge to our management of our Minds. The dates are given below for each month. Note these and be prepared, and don’t be negatively affected.

BUT, above all, this can be a case of ‘out of darkness light’. Note that this can be a huge opportunity for you to use the distress or disempowerment to take two magical empowering steps:
a. You have opportunity and reason to develop Occult Awareness, and
b. This is a crucial chance to identify, develop and use your Magical Will.

There’s a video to go with each section: the healing and the astrology.

First of all, Maggie’s wonderful presentation on Healing:

MAGGIE BEST JUNE 16Maggie’s Healing Modality: Befriending Your Unconscious Mind

All the approaches I use with clients focus on empowering them to be more in touch with their own inner resources and to find solutions and insights that are unique to them and that work for them.

Many years ago, an old trainer of mine said how clients come to us because they are out of rapport with their own unconscious and that my job was to act as a mediator or translator to improve that relationship. That is very different to me making up my mind about that is right for them and imposing my own version of their ideal life on them, or even worst imposing the same preconceived idea of what is right on everybody!!

So, let me give you my understanding of the role of the unconscious mind and how it really deserves to be seen as our friend and ally. Our unconscious mind is that part of us that controls and maintains our body functions, that stores our memories, that helps us access learned skills and habits easily (for good or bad!!), it connects us to the energies around us and gives us information and runs programs that it thinks are keeping us safe. I use the word ‘think’ here because sometimes it needs updating. Programs that kept us safe at the age of 6 may now be ones that restrict us and we may need to negotiate to enlist its cooperation to now give us a different response.

To me, it makes a lot of sense that when there are issues concerning our health and body energetics to work with that part of us that is expert in that area. Equally important is to communicate with it in a way it understands and is clear. For example, wanting to be confident at public speaking whilst focussing on all the times we messed up is giving it very confusing messages. So, understanding that the unconscious does not understand negatives (e.g. I don’t want to panic) and responds to images, we can see that the example I gave would produce images of panic and the resulting body response which is not what is intended. We can create a different strategy to communicate what we actually do want. And if there is some underlying memory that is causing that panicked reaction then the unconscious is the place to go to update that memory, to release the energy and the unwanted conditioned response.

The unconscious is very resourceful and creative and can offer responses beyond what we would have been able to come up with just relying on logic and what we consciously know. The famous American hypnotherapist, Milton Erickson, was known to send some of his patients up the nearby mountain Squaw Peak, with the invitation that they would have reached a different understanding or healed an issue by the time they came back down. And invariably they did.

Years ago, I attended a short Huna (Hawaian Shamanism) workshop and was intrigued that in Huna there are seen to be three selves, or three minds, and it is the Basic Self/Unconscious Mind/Body which is the bridge to higher consciousness. And I had been trying to think my way to higher wisdom and largely ignore my body! It was a wake up call to become more embodied and listen to my body’s signals and hunches much more. I believe, in the society we live in, the intellect is generally valued much more than instinctual wisdom so we aren’t encouraged to dialogue with our unconscious. In fact we may learn to fear it, believing that it is irrational (because it is unique to us and may not conform to what those around us believe or be easily justified with logic) or unreliable or make contain lots of murky memories we would rather avoid. What if it could be our friend and ally and help us to live more creatively and happily?

Looking at the different approaches I use with clients I can see how each modality helps build that better rapport with the UM in its own way:

  • Emotion Cody & Body Code – uses muscle testing to get answers from the unconscious. We sometimes find that blocked energies can go back generations or be related to issues we would not have imagined
  • Hypnotherapy – allows a space of relaxed inner focus where we can access and reframe memories, release energies, rehearse new positive scenarios, send messages to our unconscious of what is important to us right now. We can dialogue with it through body signals and ask it to make inner changes.
  • OldPain2Go® dialogues with our unconscious in a very direct and straightforward way to ask the unconscious to reset old pain messages with often startling responses, such as the removal or significant reduction of pain in the body, including emotional pain
  • EFT Tapping and Psy-Tap connect directly with the body’s energetic system
  • Metamorphic Touch uses a gentle touch on the feet, hands and head on areas relating to the prenatal period and provides a space for us to contact our inner wisdom and unique reason for being here
  • Bodywork and energy work allows the body greater freedom and ease which affects us on all levels

Other ways of getting in touch with that deeper inner wisdom include mindfulness, meditation, music, dance, any form of creativity, myth and storytelling, asking questions that open us to more awareness (e.g. what else is possible?), yoga, channelling, breathwork, walking, daydreaming and more. Find out what works for you. And if you feel like having a guide or interpreter to help you, then do get in touch and I’d be happy to work with you. Visit my website to learn more. And apart from hands-on bodywork all the modalities I use can be done over the internet to wherever you are in the world.

The Astrology of April 2018, from Michael Conneely:

The energies of the planets are presented in both the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology (which has a destiny unfoldment focus), and also using the Tropical Zodiac of Western Astrology (which is focussed on our psychological identity and unfoldment).

To see the charts showing the planets’ positions for the start and the end of the month, also lunations and eclipses, go to Michael’s Starwheel Astrology website: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html

So, now to turn to the Astrology of May 2018:

What are the top news items for May for you to be aware of and deal with?

1. The Big One: Mars enters Vedic sign of Capricorn and joins Ketu, the South Node of the Moon – and this conjunction is squared by Uranus:

Ketu – Mars – Uranus really rock the boat! This creates a big challenge and also a big opportunity:

The Challenge: Read below the Key dates to watch the working of your mind
and also
Understand two key opportunities:
For developing your occult insight and
For developing your needed magical Will.

On May 3rd, Mars enters the Vedic sign of Capricorn, occupying Vedic Capricorn for a record time, until November 5th.

So, in terms of the wonderful Nakshatras, the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology, this transit starts with Mars in UttarAshada Nakshatra (Lunar Sign) entering Sravana Nakshatra on 28th May.

Ketu is in Sravana, but enters UttarAshadha on 31st August.

And note that using the Western astrology Tropical Zodiac, this Mars transit is 24 Western Capricorn to 23 Western Aquarius.

And a really big note: Mars will be conjunct the lunar eclipse on July 27th.

The big thing to note is that Mars stays such an exceptionally long time in Vedic Capricorn. This is because he includes a Retrograde whilst in this sign:

Mars turns retrograde on 25th June at 15 deg Vedic Capricorn, turning direct again at 4 Capricorn on  28th August. Usually he’s two months in a sign; this year he’s six months in a sign. And often the energy of Mars is more malefic when he’s Retrograde.

The other very big thing to note is that Mars is Exalted in Vedic Capricorn. So, because Mars is very strong in Vedic Capricorn, you need to note what House Capricorn is in your Vedic Chart, and you assess the effects that you might need to prepare for, plan for, deal with, capitalise upon and also the potential difficulties that you might need to manage in your mind, and in the material world, and also heal. Mars in Capricorn is practical and achievement-orientated.

And the very big thing to note is that Ketu South Node is already there transiting in Vedic Capricorn, and so this means that we have a long-running Mars-Ketu conjunction until November – see below.

Now, Ketu brings inspiration or meltdown; it’s antimatter: mysterious and unpredictable. And Uranus is the planet of radical disruption, liberating change and futuristic innovation and inspiration.

And another twist to this tale, is that when Mars enters Vedic Capricorn, the long-running conjunction of transiting Saturn and Mars in Vedic Sagittarius ends. It’s over at last with all its delays and frustrations.

And the endlessly building transiting Mars-Pluto conjunction at 27 Vedic Sagittarius also ebbs now, and people with temporary irritating Mars issues can now calm down!!!

BUT what energy will the long-running Mars/Ketu South Node bring us until November this year?

It can be quite assertive, even violent, especially in world military affairs. There can be fear, anger and uncertainty.

So, if Vedic Capricorn is your 7th House of Marriage, be prepared to spend extra effort to calm down irritations and confrontation and make special effort to build love.

And remember, Mars activation in Relationships can be problematic, this is the basis of Kuja Dosha in the Vedic Astrology of Love and Marriage.

And if Vedic Capricorn is your 4th House of Home, this is good for technical work in the home. Build that extension!

Mars does best when transiting your 3rd, 6th and 11th signs, and not so good when transiting your 5th, 9th and 12th Houses. But it’s not as simple as that because Vedic Astrology also has a wonderful system of assessing how supported (or otherwise) you and your life will be whenever a planet transits one of the signs in your birth chart: your Ashtakavarga score for each planet for each house. Just one of Vedic Astrology’s many special unique interpretative wonders, which means it takes more than one life-time to study! So do get in touch with me for a reading about your year ahead, and including this Mars-Ketu transit. See: www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreading.html

Mars’ transit in Vedic Capricorn will be high-powered, full of energy and creative, full of endurance.

Avoid this being a case of intensity leading to explosion.

You can use your Mars transit to boost the affairs of the House that is Capricorn in your birth chart. So, if it’s your 11th House, use it to make money.

But during his Retrograde period, Mars will not be so active and florid, and you will have to take stock and assess what you have done since May 3rd! And evaluate what steps you need to underpin those areas of your life.

And, believe it or not, and this is big: Mars and Ketu will be square Uranus (transiting at 5 – 8 deg Vedic Aries, in Ashwini Nakshatra, during this period).

What lightning is unleashed! What inspiration!

OR how destructive, combative and impatient!!!

There will be explosive happenings and earthquakes. Ketu magnifies Mars! Uranus electrifies Mars! It’s up to you how you handle it.

You have received this invaluable perception. It can be innovation, zeal and inspiration. You decide!

There will be an energy that will include consciousness changes and metaphysical energies. Cultivate harmony. Use this energy for its electric best. Go for that project!

I myself will be using this time working with an artist and musician working with a theatre in Chicago, Douglas Chamberlin, to create a magnificent website to project the Gods and Goddesses, sacred sites of the ancient Irish round here and the Ogham, the Tree Alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids, the earth energies with presentations and vision journeys about them. The website will be called ‘Returning Corra’, seeking to reinstate a local Goddess of the ancient Irish, whom Saint Patrick overthrew from nearby Croagh Patrick in 432 AD, when he did a forty-day retreat on the summit before setting out to convert the Irish to the Roman Catholic Church.

What followed was their loss of land, sovereignty, language, inspiration and freedom, and even their children. But now is the time to end that.

Topics in the website will include the mystical energy work of the ancient Irish Druids, and how to identify and develop and ethically utilise your Magical Will.

Remember, Ketu is moksha karaka, or ‘salvation indicator’. Ketu can give us vast inspiration, sometimes out of horrible situations and karmas, sometimes in the form of melt-downs or sudden openings, or new portals opening wide in your life. The Mars-Ketu conjunction in Vedic Capricorn is in the birth chart of Soren Kierkegaard, whom I studied as an undergraduate at Oxford: logic fuelled by insight leaps and paradoxes! And I’m forever extending my advanced Vedic Astrology courses material. See:
www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com/

So, what about the BIG CHALLENGE and the BIG OPPORTUNITY that Mars – Ketu – Uranus bring you?

First of all the big challenge. THE MOON: As you know, the Moon transits through all the 12 signs each month. You do need to know your Moon Ashtakavarga score for each sign to be aware how supported you and your Mind and your life will be as the Moon goes through each sign. Watch out for situations where a sign has a high Ashtakavarga score for you, and the next sign drops to a low Ashtakavarga score. This can really throw you into repetitive mind patterns or pessimism or conflict, etc.
Because of the energies I have described in this May monthly forecast, we will receive such forms of mental turbulence as paranoia, repetitive thinking, depression, anxiety, fear and conflicts, from the Moon, for seven days out of every (lunar) month from May to October, as Moon transits monthly through the currently very challenging differ energies of the three signs of Vedic Scorpio (ruled by Mars), Vedic Sagittarius (occupied by transiting Saturn) and Vedic Capricorn (occupied by transiting Mars-Ketu). If we have low or irregular Ashtakavarga scores in these three signs, the mental upset will be worse.

To make it even more difficult, the Moon will have to pass through the difficult Gandanta Zone accurately defined in your birth chart by the transition point from the first to the second of these three signs, from Vedic Scorpio to Vedic Sagittarius.

Please do be aware of the most dangerous dates each month from May to November:

May 1st to 6th and 28th to 31st.
May 28th when there’s the Full Moon in Vedic Scorpio.
June 1st to 3rd.
June 24th to 30th.
July 21th to 27th.
August 18th to 23rd.
September 14th to 20th.
October 11th to 18th.

And now the BIG OPPORTUNITIES, if you can make the effort to grasp them:

#1 Mars-Ketu Conjunction can open Occult awareness, especially as it’s aspected by Uranus, especially as the Moon’s transit towards it each month includes passage through Vedic Scorpio. People are often afraid of occult awareness, but when ethical and properly understood, it is the seed for our transformation, for us becoming the person we were born to become. It includes openness to energies and vision.

#2 This is a well-starred time to learn to develop your Magical Will. The difficulties for your Mind and life of Moon passing through the turmoil of Scorpio, the pessimism of Saturn, and then the wired ‘anti-matter’ of Mars-Ketu-Uranus can impel you to develop and learn to utilise your magical will. Vedic remedies and mantra are valuable, but they are more often ‘management’ than empowering and they can be robotic. Defining the needed goal for your magical will is the needed first step to charting your way forward to become your destiny. It includes visualising the goal. There are a number of deeply ancient ways or reifying the goal and creating a firm constant impetus of manifestation. When the Moon passes through these three signs every month, and because of the energy of Mars-Ketu-Uranus, the resto f 2018 is actually a magical opportunity of the greatest importance, if you can grasp it. As I said, Topics upcoming in my courses will include the mystical energy work of the ancient Irish Druids, and how to identify and develop and ethically utilise your Magical Will.

2. Saturn is Retrograde during May 2018:

Saturn is, of course, the ruler of Vedic Capricorn, the sign where the transiting Mars-Ketu conjunction described above is occurring, and so this brings us to look at the effect of Saturn through the month of May 2018. Saturn is Retrograde.

Saturn is Retrograde from April 17th to  September 6th.

Saturn has been in Vedic Sagittarius from October 2017 and Saturn will remain in that sign until January 2020.

Saturn commences the month of May 2018 at 14 deg Vedic Sagittarius, in PurvAshada Nakshatra, retrograding into Mula Nakshatra on June 5th at 13 deg Vedic Sagittarius.

Saturn turns Direct at 8 deg Vedic Sagittarius, in Mula Nakshatra, and finally returns to Purva Ashadha Nakshatra on 27th November.

Th Saturn retrograde effect and energy is so different from the Mars-Ketu energy. The aim is to be patient and diligent to manifest the inspiration. We may well feel frustration!

3. Jupiter is Retrograde all month:

Jupiter retrogrades from 25 to 21 degrees Libra through May. This is the call to earth and ground our expansionary plans.

  1. The Nodes of the Moon:Rahu retrograded into Pushyami Nakshatra on 27th April, starting May at 16 deg Vedic Cancer, and ending May at 14 deg Vedic Cancer.
  2. Venus entered Taurus on April 20th bringing pleasure, sexual energy, art and socialising, starting the month of May at 14 deg Vedic Taurus. In fact, Venus is sexual and strong in Rohini Nakshatra from April 28th until May 8th.
    Venus enters Vedic Gemini on 15th May, and ending the month at 21 deg Vedic Gemini.6. Mercury starts the month at 20 deg Vedic Pisces, moves into Vedic Aries from May 9th to 27th, then enters Vedic Taurus and reaches 11 deg Vedic  Taurus by the end of the month.Note that when Mercury is in Vedic Taurus and Venus is in Vedic Gemini, this creates an ‘exchange of signs’ called ‘parivartana yoga’, when both planets should express themselves well, creatively and fluently, lasting until June 8th, when Venus enters Vedic Cancer. Now is the time to write those songs!

    7. Chiron is in western Aries:
    A very special event occurred on April 12th. Chiron enters Western Aries (Vedic 6 Pisces). Chiron is in Aries for the first time since it was discovered in 1977! Chiron actually retrogrades back into Western Pisces in September.

Please do a conscious survey and ask yourself these questions and make a note of the answers:

  1. Are the needs you are striving for your actual valid needs?
  2. You need a healthy ego so that you can do the work you incarnated to do in this lifetime. Is your ego healthy?
  3. Do you need to reorder your self?
  4. How are you dealing with the challenges of your wounds?
  5. Please embrace the Chiron in Aries energy to recognise what wound(s) you have to the way you assert yourself in the world! What are you doing to make them a thing of your past???8. Neptune starts the month at 21 deg Vedic Aquarius, and ends May at 22 Aquarius, in PurvaBhadra Nakshatra.9. Pluto is Retrograde from 22nd April to September 30th. Note this is the same time as Saturn is Retrograde, and note that a Saturn-Pluto conjunction is implacably building to be exact: see the chart for this moment on my website page: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html

10.The May 2018 Lunations:

The New Moon is May 15th at 11.48 a.m. at zero deg Vedic Taurus, in Krittika Nakshatra. Try to have a more restful day.

The Full Moon is May 29th at 14.19 p.m. at 14 deg Vedic Scorpio, in Anuradha Nakshatra.
Moon is debilitated. Don’t let the intensity take over your mind or actions. Check out your Moon Ashtakavarga score for how supported you, your life and your mind are when Moon is in Vedic Scorpio.
(These are the dates/times in Sligo Ireland)

11. Sun moves through Vedic Taurus from May 14 – June 15. Krittika Nakshatra has the last three of its four padas in Taurus, and Krittika is ruled by the Sun, so this could be quite a strong, settled energy.

12. Here’s the May 2018 Summary:

May 3rd: Mars enters Capricorn, exalted, Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra (until Nov. 5th, 2018)

May 9th:  Mercury goes out of debilitation in Pisces/Revati and enters Aries, Ashwini (remaining in Ashwini until May 27th, 2018)

May 14th Venus enters Gemini, Mrigashira (until June 9, 2018)

May 15th Sun enters Taurus, Krittika (until June 15, 2018)

May 15th New Moon, Taurus, Krittika

May 27th Mercury enters Taurus, Krittika, 8.13am (until June 10, 2018)

May 29th Full Moon, 14 Scorpio Anuradha, where Moon is debilitated in Scorpio.

IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE:

To conclude, let’s take a look at a useful retrospective question about last month:  What is Mercury’s Greatest degree of Debilitation?

On 26th April, Mercury was at his point of deepest debilitation at 15 deg Vedic Pisces, and I myself experienced all sorts of weird irregularities in postage and communications. Actually, there’s big food for thought in the issues raised:

Just for one example: a letter arriving to replace a lost letter posted in early March, AND the lost original letter also arrived on this day. For another example, receiving an email asking me to offer a Journey at one of the Irish sacred sites around here, and the email omitting the month of the tour visit. And if you want a third and fourth example (but there are more): well, our internet malfunctioning and giving a sixty hour upload time of a video to YouTube, and then being rejected for breach of copyright because someone was playing ‘into the Mystic’ in the background’! And also the Bank of Ireland website proved impossible to sign into.

BUT, remember, that although Mercury is problematic when at his degree and sign of Debilitation, the sign of Pisces is also inspirational, and I had great inspiration come through.

A first example was contacting healing energies in the rocks in a couple of the more remote sacred sites where I do tours, healing energies that I think were amplified by the megalithic builders, and have survived because these particular sites are not much visited.

A second example, was reading a book about the use of Will to deal with difficult states of mind due to difficult destiny as depicted by astrology natal chart and transits. The list is long and to be grateful for.

I’m mentioning this issue of the Debilitation degree of Mercury in inspirational Pisces, because I have been in contact with other people who similarly had logistical and communication and planning tensions and problems on and around this day of Mercury’s greatest Debilitation. But also special inspiration.

And there’s also a special and important twist to this tale. The point is that the declaration that Mercury is most Debilitated at this degree, only works if you use the ancient Sidereal zodiac of Vedic Astrology to provide this invaluable definition.

If you try to use the western Tropical Zodiac to apply the vast insights and declarations of Vedic Astrology, Mercury is stated to be debilitated at a wrong degree and date.

In fact, what drew me to Vedic Astrology in the first place, 25 years ago, is the concept of Gandanta Degrees: that the degrees either side of the transition from Water Sign to Fire Sign using the Vedic sidereal zodiac are particularly problematic, immaterial and insubstantial (though can provide difficult but potentially immense inspiration), and of course if you try to use the western Tropical Zodiac, your definition of this utterly invaluable insight is denied.

It’s very important to note that if you do have a planet in a gandanta zone. It is so essential to know, understand and heal. This is because you will have real problems in expressing the nature and energy of that planet, and the closer your planet is the transition point from water to fire (Vedic Sidereal Zodiac Pisces to Aries, Cancer to Leo, or Scorpio to Sagittarius), then the stronger and the vaster will be the challenges you will have to face will be. You do need to know and understand and heal. The inherent inspiration can be harvested.

Astrology and Healing Magazine April 2018

Michael Conneely

Welcome to the April 2018 fourth Edition of Maggie and Michael’s Astrology and Healing Magazine, brought to you from their Healing Centre on the
wild Atlantic way coast of Sligo in the West of Ireland.

And this month’s issue covers the impressive Healing modality of EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique

Plus clear and empowering inspirational expression of the Astrology of April 2018, valuably embracing both Western and Vedic Astrology! And asking you key questions that are raised about your life.

MAGGIE BEST JUNE 16Tap your way to a happier you.

This month I’m going to talk about how Emotional Freedom Techniques can help you improve your life.
I first came across the idea of tapping on meridian energy points way back in 2001 and as a trained shiatsu practitioner, I was both intrigued and also pretty cynical as to how this simpler approach would work.  I initially dismissed it as another fad which would at best yield only temporary or superficial results.

Yet EFT kept grabbing my attention and within the year I had trained in Emotional Freedom Techniques and was surprisingly impressed by the responses I was getting with clients. So impressed in fact, that I became and EFT Trainer and helped others get those wonderful and, often surprising, releases from all sorts of conditions, even difficult long-standing ones. Sure it does look a bit weird, or did so at the time when it was less well-known, but when something works, where nothing else has so far, it certainly grabs your attention. I was happy to update my opinion of this new way of working if it could help people feel better.

Some of my early successes were helping a client improve his walking and be able to play with his child again, have a long-standing back pain disappear, resolve trauma and phobias, help prepare a client for IVF, dissolve interview nerves and increase confidence, overcome fear of flying and on and on. The best thing about it too is it gave my clients a way of continuing to manage the on-going stress situations which occur in daily modern life. It is something that can be done face to face or over the internet or phone.

First of all you are invited to bring into awareness the issue or problem you wish to overcome – calling a spade a spade, rather than trying to rationalise it or cut off from it. We give the intensity of how that issue is affecting us a number on a scale of 0-10. The second part is tapping on a series of points on the face and head and sometimes on the hands while we say words which sum up the issue. The words are simply there to hold the focus on whatever it is we wish to address, it is the tapping on the meridian points that does the balancing of our energy. We then compare how you feel now. Has that initial number changed? Do we tap again in a similar way or has the focus changed. Often tapping can help you be aware of what is really going on and help clarify actions to take. It can release the charge of an old traumatic incident so it simply becomes a memory, rather than something that haunts you.

And having released the stuff holding you back it can also be used to help adopt new responses more easily, build confidence and facilitate learning. It can be used to help children with the various emotional challenges encountered during their growing years. In that way it can be a great way for parents to support their children and to also help them cope better with the pressures of a busy family life.

Research has been done over the years which show that tapping helps reduce the stress response. It has increasingly being taken up by therapists, educators, some doctors and even the health service.

You can find more information on my website maggiepashley.com/eft-tapping or drop me an email to find out how it could help you, your family or even your pets.

The Astrology of April 2018, from Michael Conneely:

The energies of the planets are presented in both the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology (which has a destiny unfoldment focus) and also using the Tropical Zodiac of Western Astrology, which is focussed on our psychological unfoldment.

You can see the charts for the start and the end of the month, also lunations and eclipses, by going to Michael’s Starwheel Astrology website: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html  
and information about the Planets in 2018 are covered by going to: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets.html

What are the top news items for you to be aware of and deal with?

Here is the powerful ‘Top Twelve’ summary, and it’s followed by a very useful Table of the planets’ positions in both Vedic and Western Astrology below that:

1. The Saturn Mars Conjunction
Saturn and Mars start April in exact conjunction at 14 Vedic Sagittarius (PurvAshada Nakshatra), this is 8 Western Capricorn. And the two planets stay in conjunction all month.
This is good for technical work and DIY but it’s tough when Mars pitts himself against Saturn’s structures, patience and blocks, or when Saturn puts the lid on Mars leading to disastrous explosions of swearing impatience!
The energy of Mars-Saturn conjunction is bumpy and antagonistic. Positively, you might break out of the concrete prison you erected for you life, and free up your force of expression. Hopefully knowing this astrology will allow you to see the danger signs, and plan to manage your energy level.
You could enter April with big ideas, but be prepared to modify them, integrate them with other things in your life, and ‘go with the flow’. Channel your Mars power carefully and direct it with good ethical conscious awareness.
Mars is exalted in Vedic Capricorn from May to November! Cultivate courage.
If you have been feeling overwhelmed, let things balance out. Prioritise. Be guided by your intuition and inspiration. And as a very special issue to watch: Mars and Ketu are both in Capricorn from May 2nd to November 5th. See next month’s magazine on what this means and how to handle it.

2. The Sun enters Vedic Aries on 14th April, crossing the immaterial and unconfident (but inspirational) Vedic Pisces-Aries Gandanta Zone for four days either side of that date. The Sun is exalted in Aries (Adolf Hitler had his Sun there), and Mars is strong, so this can hold a useful guide picture of energy up to you.
Develop your individual expression. Embrace who you are. Sun is square Pluto on April 10th. This can open a portal for you to come to grips with your life direction and embrace deep change.

3. The Sun is conjunct Uranus in the heavens on 19th April. Anticipate unexpected events, impulses and inspirations. Will this be a matter of explosions of impatience or inspired revolutionary breakthrough in your case? Try to use this inspirational time to consciously take stock! To identify the habitual negative expectations of your life. Try to imagine instead how you can live connected to your wellspring of inspiration- driven confidence. Maggie’s ‘Access Consciousness’ healing and empowerment work is very good for this. See:
maggiepashley.com/breakthrough-sessions worldwide on-line via Zoom
maggiepashley.com/access-body-processes hands on work in Ireland

4. The Moon is conjunct Ketu in the heavens on 10th April at 17 Vedic Capricorn. This is not good for confidence or sound health.

5. Mars conjuncts Pluto exact on 26th April at 27 Vedic Sagittarius (21 western Capricorn). Be careful not to wield force implacably! Beware of darkness rising with violence.

6. Mercury is Retrograde from 1st to 14th April, and does not regain his pre-retrogradation position until the end of April. If Mercury has problematic stats in your Vedic Birth Chart, expect problems in IT, filing, posts and communications, and do your best to stay calm (somehow) and deal with them methodically and in a friendly way.
Mercury is square Mars on April 4th to 5th: avoid angry words.
Saturn is square Mercury on April 5th: consciously avoid blocks or pessimism or over-focus in the Mercury areas of life.
Mercury is in Vedic Pisces, so this does in truth lead to confused mental and communication issues, but can be inspirational.
Mercury Retrograde periods are actually good if you take note of the glitches, review your programs, and make good realistic decisions for how to manage your priorities.
The Mars-Saturn conjunction will force you to be pragmatic and respond to Mercury Retrograde glitches. Determine where you are going with your projects.


7. Saturn is Retrograde from April 17th to  September 6th. Saturn is in Sagittarius from October 2017 to January 2020. And within that Saturn and Mars are now in PurvAshada.
If you have Sun there, you could experience golden reaping (or professional downfall if you are off course in your life, or weak).
If you have Moon there, this is the centre of your Sade Sate: the difficult and separative, often depressed seven and a half period where Saturn transits through the Vedic sign before your natal Moon, the Vedic sign of your natal Moon and the sign after that. Note that a Nakshatra defined sequence for Sade Sate gives better definition than sign based definition.
Saturn actually retrogrades from 16 to 9 deg Sagittarius in 2018, so traversing from PurvaAshada back into Mula Nakshatras.
With Saturn transiting Sagittarius, note that you will need to honour and balance principles of both Jupiter expansion and Saturn contraction and consolidation.
With Saturn being retrograde, this is a wonderful chance to understand yourself better. Ask yourself these Retrograde Saturn questions:
a. Do I do too much under the influence of impulse and excitement?
b. Do I recognise my bedrock motivations?
c. And this is a big one: Do I draw back out of what would be good for me and my loved ones out of blocks and FEAR???
d. Does bedrock sense that you are a loser and a failure hold you back???
e. Develop awareness of the consequences of your decisions through your life.

8. Pluto is Retrograde from 22nd April to September 30th. Note this is the same time as Saturn is Retrograde, and note that a Saturn-Pluto conjunction is implacably building to be exact: see the chart for this moment on my website page: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html

9. Jupiter is Retrograde all month: this is the time to consolidate and bring into form your inspirations and ideas of the previous month or to.
Dot the Is. Cross the Ts.
Create sound structures and procedures. Apply diligence and discipline and your expansionary projects will FLOWER  and SUCCEED!


10. Rahu is in Ashlesha Nakshatra until 27th April when he retrogrades into Pushyami Nakshatra. Ashlesh is difficult serpent energy. Rahu can be driven, over-expansionary and toxic. Ashelsha is ruled by Mercury and its last four degrees are Gandanta. Seek to find the INSPIRATION offered at this time. Avoid the Mercury over-discussion and criticism. Avoid the Rahu darkness and over-ambition. Notice if you feel pray to psychological imbalance. Transmute the poison. Embrace vision and energy work. What with the breakthrough of Uranus entering Vedic Aries/Ashwini this year, and the earlier eclipse in Ashlesha, 2018 can be a most wonderful year for INSPIRATION. By Vedic Sign, Rahu is transiting Cancer at this time. Issues of mothering arise in our lives, emotional breakthrough and healing and empowerment from this.

11. Venus enters Taurus on April 20th bringing pleasure and art and socialising.

12. Chiron enters Aries: A very special event occurs on April 12th. Chiron enters Western Aries (Vedic 6 Pisces). Chiron is in Aries for the first time since it was discovered in 1977! Chiron actually retrogrades back into Western Pisces in September.
Please do a conscious survey and ask yourself these questions and make a note of the answers:
a. Are the needs you are striving for your actual valid needs?
b. You need a healthy ego so that you can do the work you incarnated to do in this lifetime. Is your ego healthy?
c. Do you need to reorder your self?
d. How are you dealing with the challenges of your wounds?
Please embrace the Chiron in Aries energy to recognise what wound(s) you have to the way you assert yourself in the world! What are you doing to make them a thing of your past??

Astrology and Healing Newsletter March 2018

Michael Conneely

Astrology and Healing Newsletter March 2018 from
Maggie Pashley and Michael Conneely

Here’s the March 2018 issue of Maggie Pashley and Michael Conneely’s ‘Astrology and Healing Magazine’. The Astrology of March 2018 and Healing Old Pain: Old Pain to Go.

It’s brought to you on the first weekend of every month, from their Healing Centre on the beautiful Atlantic Coast of Sligo in the West of Ireland.

As always, there’s a presentation from Maggie’s vast range of Healing Techniques offered both in our Centre and also Worldwide. And Michael offers a helpful description of the astrology of each month in both Western and Vedic Astrology, and how to handle these energies.

MAGGIE BEST JUNE 16First of all, Maggie talks about helping people become pain-free with OldPain2Go®.

This month I’d like to introduce a new technique that I’ve recently learned and have been getting some amazing results with clients using it. It is called OldPain2Go® and in a session I help people dialogue with their unconscious (actually much easier than you think!) to release long-standing pain.

OldPain2Go is the brainchild of Steven Blake who developed it over a period of seven years and still continues to refine it. I was fortunate to train with Steven himself and experience first hand how effective and versatile this approach is and benefit from Steven’s insights and years of experience.

Pain has a purpose of course. It grabs our attention and tells us something isn’t right and we may need to take some action. For example, you might have a fall, have a momentary feeling of pain or discomfort and be able to carry on or it may be a much higher intensity of pain and you may need to rest, see a doctor or even go to hospital. However, once we have taken the required action the body can generally heal itself.

It is when pain lingers on and in a way serves no purpose – we already know we have vulnerability in an area, or arthritis or an old injury – that it becomes a problem. The pain can often wreak havoc with our life, restricting our activities, affecting our mood, and generally our ability to enjoy life. It can also affect our friends and family as they watch us coping with pain. And of course it is not easy to run around and play with our children when we are in agony.

Those pain messages are like old answerphone messages telling us we have a back problem over and over again and we already know that. Those old pain messages can also be so loud that they make it harder for us to be alerted to any new pain messages that we need to pay attention to. What if we could delete those pain messages like old answerphone messages? That is what we aim to do with OldPain2Go® and many people can testify to its effectiveness. Watch the wide range of testimonials on Steven’s site.

So what happens to the underlying condition. Well we aren’t dealing with that we are dealing with the old pain messages but as we release that old pain and along with it tension and inflammation, blood circulation improves and the release of tension can allow our body much greater freedom to re-balance. If you are having medical treatment, of course, you need to continue to work with your doctor or specialist. You may need to pay attention to your body’s signals asking you to slow down, or stretch or move in a particular way. You can generally feel more active and able to enjoy being out of pain.

With the people I have worked with all of them except one had their pain go down to zero and the remaining one had a significant reduction in pain levels. It is certainly better than taking pain-killers which often aren’t completely effective and come with side-effects.

So you might ask: if I don’t have the pain won’t I be at risk of forgetting I have ……(fill in the blank for whatever condition applies). Well no, either than condition may improve along with removing the pain and indeed it often does, or your body will alert you with new pain if there is something you need to be aware of. More importantly, you’ll hear the new pain messages better as they won’t be drowned out by the old messages.

So if you have chronic pain which affects the quality of your life, or if you know somebody who has and is open to a new approach, check out the videos below – my website or Steven Blake’s website and get in touch.  I offer face to face sessions in Co Sligo and on-line sessions via zoom or skype worldwide?

In the video below you can watch me talk about OldPain2Go® and the video below that is a video of a client’s reaction to a having a session dealing with an old standing back pain issue

An added bonus to OldPain2Go® is it helps you dialogue with your own unconscious which can be useful for all sorts of things relating to your body.

Michael Conneely with The Astrology of March 2018:

I have enjoyed writing this newsletter about the fascinating and powerful, creative and inspired and sometimes fraught astrology of March 2018.

I think there’s a lot of insight and good guidance here, and I’d be most happy if you wanted to take it further by having an astrology reading with me, or by enrolling on one of my many very informative and invaluable astrology courses.

I also offer many other healings and courses, and I would say that my astrology readings and courses benefit from cross-referencing to these as well. I hope to hear from you.

 

For your background info, please see my two helpful website pages: ‘charts for 2018’ and ‘Planets Info 2018’.
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets
Please note that what you can see in these web pages is the position of each planet, at the start and end of the month, eclipses, lunations, and so much more, with all charts shown in both western and Vedic Astrology.
Remember, Western astrology uses the Tropical Zodiac and is a psychological depiction, whereas Vedic Astrology uses the Sidereal Zodiac and is an Incarnational Life Purpose and Destiny depiction. The difference between the two zodiacs is currently 24 degrees.
Salute to the great power of Uranus Energy:

Uranus continues his slow inexorable, wired and ultimately ferocious passage forward through early Vedic Aries, through Ashwini Nakshatra.
And I am hearing of so many people with natal planets there in early Vedic Aries who are now feeling such fiery flux of new inspiration, change and innovation, and who are bringing into being such a current of revolution in their lives and consciousness.
And also, I am hearing similar from those who have natal planets opposite there, in early Vedic Libra.
And there’s the square aspect from Uranus too: I know of young people whose lives have been revolutionised following experience of this Uranus transit being square their natal Uranus: restraining situations ditched; horizons transcended, new vistas secured!
Yes, often there can be outbursts and irritable words, frustration storms. And also, sometimes circumstances force people the hard way, on to the path to the fulfilment of their destiny needs.
But once (and if) they recognise, and give form and strategy to, the new current of inspiration and revolution, then their lives get so much more purposeful, and so much more fulfilling and beautiful and happy.
Often, childhood issues and bodily-held blocks rise now to be recognised and healed so that we can go forward in this vanguard of the great Uranus progress.
Often, relationships will heal and grow because of the liberation energy that Uranus now offers to people in early Vedic Aries/Vedic Libra, or square to that.
I know quite a few people with planets in Ashwini Nakshatra in early Vedic Aries, who are newly embracing their potential for healing powers and techniques as Uranus transits through Ashwini, or exiting Ashwini Healers who are adding new extensions to their healing repertoires. The ruling deities of Ashwini are the Ashwini Kumaras, who are the divine physicians. I think a lot of the impetus to heal is because Ashwini is the first Nakshatras after the Pisces/Aries Gandanta, and I think a planet rising out of the immaterial, unconfident Gandanta is driven to find inspiration and meaning, and driven by panic, indeed, to HEAL.
And I would note that this inspiration and healing ability I mention is so much more creative, fulfilling and inspiring than over-reliance on Mantra or traditional remedies, which in my observation, can imprison, be over-formulaic, or create rigidity. Mantra has it definite healing place but should not be used in an imprisoning way.

Salute to the oceanic force of Neptune’s Energy:

Neptune continues at 19 Vedic Aquarius (13 western Pisces) in Shatabishak Nakshatra. Neptune is so powerful, and he can be devastating. So often he can be associated with illusion, deceptiveness, material loss, physical weakening issues, and indeed alcohol misuse. But his positive power is the ocean current of vision. I am seeing people experiencing conjunction or opposition from this transiting Neptune, who are healing their lives through experience of vision, increased sensitivity, increased intuition, even clairaudience and clairvision. Neptune transits Venus:
I myself have this Neptune transiting opposition my natal Venus, and I am well into filming an online Tarot course, AND we are creating an Irish Gods and Goddesses Tarot Pack!!!
With a colleague in Chicago, a deeply spiritual musician, artist and theatre producer, we are creating video montages with music and voice presentation for the Gods and the Goddess of the ancient Irish, for the Ogham and the Runes: the sacred alphabets of the ancient Irish and Norse peoples (courses for which I’ve taught for 25 years), for the ancient Sacred Sites of Ireland which abound round here, and to present the mystical energy work of the ancient Irish Druids, plus promos for my earth spirituality novels: Rune Magic, Sacred Earth, Druid and The Tribe… AND I am inspired and progressing fast, my writing of my novel about the Gods and Goddess of the ancient Irish,
and there’s so much more…. ….

Jupiter turns retrograde from 8th March to 11th July 2018.

Jupiter will have reached 29 deg Vedic Sidereal Libra, that’s 23 western Tropical Scorpio, on March 8th when he turns retrograde.
Jupiter remains Retrograde until 11th July at 20 Vedic Libra.
Check out which House Libra is, in your Vedic birth chart, to see the accurate prediction of what area of your life Jupiter will have been showing his blessings and expansion in since he entered Vedic Libra in September 2017.
For maximum blessings in this life area, you do of course need to check the standing of Jupiter in your birth chart (and in all your Divisional or Vedic Varga charts), and you also need to check out the number of Ashtakavarga points given to Jupiter by the sign Libra.
And also of course you also need to identify what planets you have in Vedic Libra, each of which Jupiter will activate by transit at this time.
And please do note that, in fact, the Dasha or predictive period you are in, in Vedic astrology, is in fact is the bigger governor of how powerful any transit will be in your life.
Note that planets in your birth chart and in your transits only perform at their very fullest if you are in the Dasa of that planet.
So, this means that if you are in Jupiter Dasa, now, then this transit of Jupiter through Libra will be at fullest power, and Jupiter will probably be at his very best.
However, to predict and understand the effect of this Jupiter transit, you do also need to take into your account the standing of Jupiter in your birth chart for how well your Jupiter dasha will feature, and also take into account how Jupiter treats your other planets and how your other planets treat Jupiter.
I like using Lajjitaadi Avasthas table for this assessment, and the table in kala software is very good for assessing planet’s standing and inter-relationships in your birth chart.
I have been blessed by this Jupiter transit, in that Libra is my 4th House, and we moved to a new house to a most lovely remote spot on the Atlantic coast of Sligo, almost to the day when Jupiter entered Libra, AND, I am in Jupiter Dasa, and my natal Jupiter has very high scores across the Varga charts and within the Lajjitaadi Avasthas calculation I mention above. So, this has brought me such wonderful blessing and purpose, and such expansion in my work, and, indeed, the house we moved to has brought such wonderful comfort, scope, possibility, support and blessings, and the area it’s in is total inspiration and utter beauty.
The widely spread-out hamlet once housed seventy people fifty years ago, but now only five houses are left, and the others are in disappearing ruins due to depopulation (indeed, over the last two hundred years), but then I do have Ketu in my 4th House, so this fits totally!
And note importantly that Uranus is also casting an aspect on Vedic Libra from where Uranus transits at the beginning of Vedic Aries. And this brings revolution and inspiration to people with planet in early Vedic Libra.
BUT, note most importantly, that now, in early March, Jupiter is turning retrograde. So, if you have been receiving a lot of inspiration and if you have been drawn to expand, well: once Jupiter turns retrograde, this will be the time to ‘put your money where your mouth is’, and ground and manifest, strategize and give substance to all your aspirations.
Do this needed consolidation work.
Don’t let it be a ruined crop!

Mercury turns Retrograde from 23rd March to 14th April, 2018.

At the start of his Retrograde, Mercury will be at 22 Vedic Pisces/16 Western Aries. Try to get ready for the effects of Mercury Retrograde, now, by getting all your filing and admin and other communications, done and in good standing.
I personally have literally thousands of documents to keep track of, and most complicated IT demands.
But Mercury is actually Retrograde in my birth chart (and he is conjunct Ketu/South Node and Mercury is Lord of the 12th!), so no matter how hard I try to get all my IT and communication systems into order, I always find out the many, many dimensions which I just didn’t get ready enough. It’s like being a dyslexic!
There are those who say, I believe accurately, that Retrograde planets in our birth chart indicate issues pertaining to that planet that we didn’t get right in a past life.
So, the curse (I mean gift) in this life, is that we have to take very extra special attention to the demands and affairs of that planet in this life time.
So, I hope you manage to get a lot better prepared for Mercury Retrograde period than I ever seem to!
Double-check and update!
Try not to bogged down by misunderstandings. Try if possible to sort them out! Be careful of mistakes. Double check details of financial transactions.
So, in summary, Mercury turns Retrograde at on 23rd March at 22 deg Vedic Pisces. He turns direct on 14th April at 10 degrees Pisces in UttaraBhadra Nakshatra. But it is most important to note that the Mercury retrograde effect do not fully sort out until Mercury attains his pre-retrogradation position, which will be on 3rd May at 22 Vedic Pisces.
But on the positive side, I suppose I am forced to concede that Mercury Retrograde periods do offer us endless chances to sort out, improve and upgrade our systems!
But, what do we make of Mercury in Vedic Pisces? Mercury transits Vedic Pisces March 2nd to May 9th.
Note that Venus is also transiting Vedic Pisces until March 26th.
And note that Mercury is considered debilitated in Pisces. What I would say is that Mercury’s rationality and Pisces’ intuitive currents can need careful handling.
Though what I personally would also say, though, is that the combination can produce inspired and intuitive expression.
And, of course, Jupiter’s energies enter this mix, as Jupiter rules Pisces. And although Jupiter is Retrograde, too, I do think there could be a lot of beauty, intuition, inspiration, death and rebirth, creativity and sensitivity, as a result of, this complex and infinite subtle weaving of sometimes far-out beauty and energies.

Mars Saturn Conjunction in March 2018:

Mars starts the month of March at 20 western Sagittarius/26 Vedic Scorpio. Mars enters Vedic Sagittarius on March 8th.
Mars is action. Sagittarius if Fire. Mars is aggressive and independent. Sagittarius is orientated to beliefs. Mars transiting Sagittarius will impel us to act on the basis of what we believe.

BUT, in addition to this, note that by the time that Mars enters Vedic Sagittarius, Saturn is already transiting at 13 Sagittarius.
So, this means that both Mars and Saturn are in Vedic Sagittarius, together. Mars’ conjunction with Saturn becomes exact at 14 deg Sagittarius on 2nd April, in PurvAshadha Nakshatra.
and note that Pluto is meanwhile at 26 deg Sagittarius, which is still PurvaAshadha.

So, this means that if you have planets in Sagittarius they will experience a Mars transit in March
And indeed, they will also be affected by an ever-closer growing Mars-Saturn conjunction, which will become exact on 2nd April.

Now, it’s important to realize that the energy of Mars conjunct Saturn is bumpy and antagonistic:
Mars wants to go, go, go, and in Sagittarius, he will most impatiently and desirously and even aggressively want to expand, expand, expand, achieve, achieve, achieve, and as fast as he can – he’ll want to get things done either today, or preferably yesterday! And he will brook no opposition. And he will be fuelled by your own fierce yearning to achieve.

BUT Saturn is conjunct Mars and Saturn, Lord Shani, is Lord of Karma. He insists on patience, diligence, hard work, dotting every i and crossing every t.
Guess how the two of these get on with each other!!!

Your big question: Will Saturn restrict Mars building up to explosion?
OR will Saturn direct and structure Mars, and strategize to produce achievement?
And answer this: is the choice in this question within your control and up to you, or is it NOT?

When Mars meets Saturn, Positive energy or Aggressive destruction, meets with limits based on Fear or Necessity/Practicality!

Guess how you will be left feeling in your body and in your consciousness as Mars and Saturn slug it out??? Frustrated yes. Ill: well – possibly, yes! if you are not careful to use and successfully act on this perception I am offering here!!!

And do check out the affairs of the House that Sagittarius represents in your Vedic birth chart.

AND please do note that this Mars-Saturn energy can be managed in a harnessing and healed way, now that we have heard this perception.

AND also note that this Mars-Saturn energy is potential extremely good support for technical projects.

AND it is very good support for DIY work, especially if such is overdue. Given that Maggie and I are at the forefront of the Wild Atlantic Way tourist industry (well that’s my story), I have to lay asap before the beginning of the west of Ireland Tourist Season, a concrete foundation and then build a lean-to extension then plumb and wire that, so I suppose I must say a grudging (I mean grateful cheerful) hallo to this imminent union of Saturn and Mars!!!

Saturn actually enters PurvaAshadha Nakshatra on 3rd March (where Pluto is transiting), staying in PurvaAshadha until June 5th.
Mars enters Vedic Sagittarius in Mula Nakshatra, but Mars then joins Saturn in PurvaAshadha on Mach 31st.
So, there will be a close Mars-Saturn conjunction in PurvaAshadha from 3rd March to June 5th.
This is because, in fact, Saturn does turn Retrograde on 18th April at 15 Sagittarius, re-entering Mula Nakshatra on June 5th. But Saturn ends his Retrogradation on 1st September at 8 deg Sagittarius. And then, Saturn re-enters PurvaAshadha Nakshatra on November 28th, not finally leaving Sagittarius until 24th January 2020.

N.B. To have Mars, Saturn and Pluto all in the same sign, Vedic Sagittarius, is an explosive containment energy that is quite something, and do see my comments on the gathering Saturn-Pluto conjunction in the last issues of this Magazine: February 2018.

Mars and Saturn will form exact conjunction with each other on 12th January, 2020. This will be at 28 Vedic Sagittarius, which is 22 western Capricorn, in UttaraAshadha Nakshatra.
Note that this IS AN immensely powerful conjunction. You can see the chart for the exact moment of this Saturn Pluto Conjunction at the foot of my website page: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html
However, returning to the present conjunction of Mars and Saturn in PurvAshadha Nakshatra, do note that PurvaAshadha Nakshatra is ruled by Venus, so when Saturn is transiting long-term in PurvaAshadha, this will be good for giving form to love, and also giving form to art.
However, there is the question of how these two will cope with Mars, and also note that this consolidation and structuring of beauty will need to be balanced with explosive regenerative Pluto

Have you got planets in Vedic Gemini?

Well given that three planets: Mars, Saturn and Pluto are all transiting opposite in Vedic Sagittarius, people with planets in Vedic Gemini need to be very careful during March. Indeed, Saturn transits in Sagittarius until 2020, so they will have some element of restriction and difficulty to deal with until 2010.

Venus in Vedic Pisces:

Venus moves into Vedic Pisces on 2nd March. Venus is exalted in Vedic Pisces. And this means that people with Venus in Pisces in the Vedic birth chart can be very attuned to a higher vibration of the nature and reality of love. It’s refined and compassionate. And because Jupiter rules Vedic Pisces, the two Gurus combine this month their very different focusses.
I have found it interesting to compare the ‘Alice Bailey Rays’ of these people. I offer psychodynamic and Evolutionary western astrology as well as Vedic Astrology, and I love Megastar psychodynamic astrology software, which offers an extrapolation from the western birth chart, a statement of the Alice Bailey Rays a person is born to work with this time. Often people with Exalted Venus have an emphasis of Ray 2 Love and Wisdom and Ray 6 Devotion and Idealism.
What are the Seven Rays? Well, the Seven Rays came down to us from Alexandrian Egypt. Alexander ‘The Great’ conquered it in about 300 BC and set up the Ptolemaic Pharaoh Dynasty, which ended with Egypt coming under the heel of Rome and the infamy of Cleopatra, and by weird coincidence this was at the similar time to Queen Boudica (Boadicea), Queen of the Iceni in the East of England
and Queen Cartimandua of the Brigantes in the North of England who, like Cleopatra and at the same time, both had to deal with Rome, and of course there’s also the famous Queen Maeve of Connaught of the West of Ireland at this same time, who’s coronation mound is near where I live at the wonderful Rathcroghan Visitor’s Centre.
However, to get back to the Seven Rays, Alexander’s conquest of ancient Egypt meant there was an influx of Greek philosophers to Egypt, and these Greek Philosophers met Egyptian Priests, and the result was … that the Seven Rays passed over to the West.
The knowledge of the seven rays was preserved in Europe by the Medieval Jews through the long centuries of the persecutions of the Roman Catholic Church, and was then disseminated by Alice Bailey a hundred years ago. For a modern book on the Seven Rays, read: “The Seven Rays Made Visual” by Helen S. Burmeister.
But to get back to Venus, Venus is joined in Vedic Pisces on 3rd March by Mercury, and on the 15th March by the Sun, and then on 17th March by the Moon.
Importantly, note that Venus is transiting in Vedic Pisces which is ruled by Jupiter, and at the same time Jupiter is transiting in Vedic Libra ruled by Venus. This is a powerful Parivatana yoga.
However, as I said above, Jupiter is Retrograde at the time, but I do feel we can perceive, feel, understand and use this energy, and so March could be a good month to create love and beauty. Mercury and Venus being both in Pisces will help each other at this time.
And due to the Parivatana yoga of Venus in Jupiter’s sign of Pisces, and Jupiter in Venus sign of Libra, Jupiter and Venus in Pisces will help each other too.
Venus in Pisces is a healing energy, but note that malefics Mars and Rahu/North Node are both casting aspects on Pisces in March. So, this will bring a rather fraught introjection of energies and emotional issues. Resentment at issues from our past may surface. It will be so valuable if we can heal these or create boundaries around these.
Anecdotally, on the subject of dealing with torturing family issues from our past, you might like to hear that when we visited the utterly beautiful Loch Key Forest Park near Boyle recently, and we found to our amazement that the lovely gift shop was selling ‘Watchover Voodoo dolls’ (children’s’ versions!) and one of these was called The Equaliser. And The Equaliser with its burning red eyes addresses past and present hurt and injustices, with the statement:
‘Happiness is the Best Revenge’.
Notwithstanding the fierce injunction of The Equalizer, I do think the complexities of transits in Vedic Pisces, with Chiron being there too, could make for a powerful, creative and healing tide! It would be good to be awake and ready and taking note of healing and creative opportunities in March.

Chiron changes western/Tropical signs next month:

Chiron, the Wounded Healer, has been transiting western Pisces for the last 8 years, and next month, in April Chiron transits into western Aries. This is quite a big change of psychological energy. We are at the end of sensitive dwelling into our woundedness, the psychology of Chiron in western Aries brings a new jolt of clarity and action into our healing, and in the healing of ourself, we can become the Healer of others.

Venus in Vedic Aries:

Note that after crossing into the Pisces-Aries Gandanta, Venus leaves Pisces and enters Aries/Ashwini on 26th March, reaching 6 deg Aries by the end of the month. Of course, Venus meets Uranus already transiting in Venus Aries, and this energy could be quite inspired, new and creative, to say the least.

The Sun:

The Sun starts March at 16 Vedic Aquarius (10 western Pisces). The Sun finishes March at 16 Vedic Pisces which is 11 western Aries).
So, the Sun transits Vedic Pisces from March 14th to April 13th.
Importantly, note that Vedic Pisces receives aspects from malefics Mars (in Sagittarius) and Rahu (in Cancer). So, do note that this affects the Sun, and also the New Moon of March 17th
And, importantly, note that this New Moon is conjunct Chiron at 28 western Pisces/ 3 Vedic Pisces.

The Equinox:

The Equinox is March 20th, the day when the day-length grows longer enough to equal the length of the night, and form this day onwards, the days get longer than the nights.

Lunations:

There’s a Full Moon on 2nd March at 17 Vedic Leo/11 western Virgo
(Moon in PurvaPhalguni Nakshatra, Sun in Shatabishak)
There’s a New Moon on 17th March at 2 Vedic Pisces/27 western Pisces
(Moon in PurvaBhadra Nakshatra)
And a there’s a Full Moon on 31st March. Sun in Vedic Pisces. Moon at 17 Vedic Virgo/10 western Libra

Sade Sate:

Note that Sade Sate occurs as Saturn transits through the sign before the sign occupied by the Moon in our Vedic birth chart, the sign of the Moon and the sign after the Moon. This process takes seven and a half years, and is often a death and rebirth experience and a period of fraught separations and mental tensions. With Saturn now transiting PurvaAshadha, this means that those people with Moon in PurvaAshadha are in the centre of their Sade Sate experience.

I have enjoyed writing this newsletter. I hope you will find it useful. To take this further, book an astrology reading with me, or enroll on one of my many very informative and invaluable astrology courses.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Michael

Understand the 15th February 2018 Eclipse in your life

Michael Conneely

15th February 2018 Solar Eclipse – The Astrology Around This Eclipse Event

Understand the February 2018 Eclipse. On Thursday 15th February 2018, there is a Solar Eclipse. We each need to understand it. We each need to manage our mind and heal and empower and fulfil the potential that this Eclipse offers.

Any Eclipse has an effect like an Earthquake, shaking the Earth’s crust free of tension that has built up. In our life an Eclipse can mean undamming. If it’s not conjunct a planet in our birth chart (or in a significant house – see below), we’ll only feel the general energy effect.

But of course, an Eclipse will strongly affect us if it’s conjunct or ‘on top of’ one of our planets (or opposite), or if its in one of the Houses in our Astrology Birth Chart that represents an area of our life that is ready for, and needs:  transformation – positive or challenging.

We may realise there’s a dam burst coming, or we can be living a life that hides from that.

The most recent Eclipse was 31st January 2018, and I personally found its effects vast. It was in my first House conjunct Ascendant and Pluto. I feel I came into my power in certain key areas, power and inspiration that had been cut off up to that Eclipse. Pluto is an ‘Unaspected sub-personality’ in my psychodynamic Western Astrology birth chart, in terms of psychosynthesis techniques that I teach on my courses.

This is a Solar Eclipse.  A Solar Eclipse in which the sun is obscured by the moon. So, in some ways Moon qualities and our Moon nature may take pre-eminence over our Sun-nature. The Moon may produce strange but important dreams around the time of a Solar Eclipse. Shock. The wholly unexpected. New insight may be offered. If the Eclipse is strong with you, do note what comes to you. Do protect what you are being called to do. Let the Moon advice your Sun. A project could now arise that will take at least six months (if not a lifetime) to work on. The Sun in your birth chart is your divine charioteer. He is the needed King of your Kingdom. He needs to be strong enough to chart his way forward and do the needed work. But he can’t escape the guidance from your Moon: the destiny tides, the secrets, the past. our Emotions. Why we are here. Unexpected revolution or disruption.

Do not neglect the change a solar eclipse brings. Do not let the new plant whither. Bring your Sun to play. Strategise, take command, alter your life so as to support the new energy flow and impetus! Eclipses were seen at the time of the Epics as portending The Fall of Kings. So, let your solar king take charge in the way the Moon guides. Hard though it is, be prepared to see shock or even catastrophe as gateway for new fuller life. Be prepared to see how an Eclipse that will have a powerful effect on you because of its position in your birth chart, as the arising of your Destiny!

This Eclipse of 15th February 2018, is at 3 deg Aquarius Vedic Sidereal Zodiac. This is 27 deg Western Tropical Zodiac. For the different types of value that Vedic and Western astrology offer you, please see below. Note that you definitely need both for the full depiction and accurate understanding.

The time of the 15th February 2018 Eclipse is at 21.05 hrs here in the west of Ireland. To discover eclipse time in your location, see:

The Nature of an Eclipse: So, remember that Eclipses are like earthquakes. If there are tensions in the earth’s crust, then earthquakes smash apart the tension areas so as to create new stability, so as to destroy present tension. In fact, there are often eclipses, cyclones and tsunamis at the times of eclipses.

  • So, what is upcoming for you, now?
  • What is germinating inside you now?
  • Is your full potential denied to you by others or by you?
  • Is your greatness imprisoned and blocked?

Eclipses are particularly powerful in undamming blocked energy. They crack open imprisoning restraints that our family have placed on our life, and that we perpetuate. If we are living in a wrong situation, or in a way that denies our incarnational life purpose, and if the Eclipse conjucnts one of the planets in our birth chart, or occurs in a Key House, then our life could be demolished – with the chance that we may then build a better or more authentic life. A great enemy is our fear and denial in not admitting that our life is all wrong for us, in not admitting that our definition of ourself is all wrong for us, in not allowing in that special spark that we in fact incarnated this time in order to create and become.
Lunar Eclipses tend to have immediate effects; Solar Eclipses like this one will have a delayed effect.
This 15th February 2018 Eclipse is mainly visible in South America and other Southern Hemisphere areas, but its effects will be important worldwide – to all of us, especially if it’s on one or more of our planets, especially if its in key house in our chart.

The Vedic Astrology Effects of this 15th February 2018 Eclipse:

I am going to first of all describe the effects of this eclipse through the lens of Vedic Astrology. Vedic Astrology must use the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac, and is orientated to the depiction of our incarnational life purpose and our destiny:

You can see from my 2018 Astrology Charts web page on my Starwheel Astrology Website, that the Vedic chart for the eclipse has Sun and Moon at 3 deg Aquarius, with Mercury desperately closely caught up in the eclipse at 1 deg Aquarius, and Venus at 12 Aquarius. And note that Ketu/South Node of this eclipse is at 20 deg Vedic Capricorn. So very many people will feel mental tension at times before, during and after the eclipse, and everyone will feel to varying degrees the energies that come from this Eclipse being in the sign of Aquarius (see below) and that Mercury and Venus and Ketu/South Node are closely involved in the Heavens.

Mercury Issues: So, to the extent that Eclipse energies affect everyone, we will all need to be careful of Mercury issues: just before, during and just after this eclipse: Communication, managing our mind, posts and Information Technology.

Venus Issues: Venus is pretty close to the eclipse too, so matters of love and art and beauty could receive tension or even strong jolt, in the case of many people – or even earthquake.

Moving from the General to the individual: Which House in your birth chart does the Eclipse occupy?:

We have mentioned the general energy facets of this Eclipses that all will feel to differing degrees. We must now go on to identify Eclipse effects that will be individual to you.

Most importantly you need to identify the House the Eclipse falls in in your birth chart, and then the affairs and Life Areas of the House in which the eclipse falls. This is so as to be able to determine in what area of your life the eclipse energies will manifest, and so that you can work to positively transform or conversely even destroy areas of your life that the Eclipse may highlight for improvement and development – or destruction.

So, for example, if Aquarius where this Eclipse falls, is your first House in your Vedic birth chart, there will be quite an energy burst there. There will be challenging effects and consequences if you are ‘off course’ in your life. There will be positive effects if you are ‘on course’ for your life-purpose and destiny, and if you are on course as regards the special spark of achievement you incarnated to manifest this time. There was an eclipse in August 2017 in Donald Trump’s first House, between his Ascendant and Mars, and he became President.

You also need to realise that the eclipse will have a strong effect on the House opposite, and so please make sure that you understand what are the affairs of that house too. So, if the Eclipse is in your first house, the house opposite is the 7th – the House of marriage.

And so, to take another House-related example, if Aquarius is your 8th House, you could experience inheritance or psychic opening etc. The whole chart would obviously need to be examined to define exactly what would be affected. Within the 8th House are dangerous areas identified by the Divisional Charts (Varga Charts of Vedic Astrology (22nd Drekkana or 64th Navamsha): enrol on my Varga Course or get a Reading).

And note that the planet that is the ruler of the House where the Eclipse falls in your chart is also affected, plus the Houses that that planet occupies and plus the Houses that that planets rules. And also note that Planets occupying the Opposite House will be affected.

Your Natal Planets are affected that the Eclipse Conjuncts or Opposes:

So, even more importantly than the ‘House effect’ described above, is the effect on a planet that is caught in the eclipse area – if, indeed you have such. So, if you have a planet at 3 deg Vedic Aquarius (+/- 3 deg), where this Eclipse is,  then that planet will be very strongly affected by the earthquake Eclipse energies. The closer the planet is to the eclipse Sun/Moon, the more it will be affected.

And if you have a planet that is opposite the eclipse, it too will be affected. So, for this eclipse, watch out for earthquake, if you have planets around 3 deg Vedic Leo which is opposite the Eclipse.

Will you feel Positive or Negative Effects?

The effect will feel negative if your life is ‘off course’, i.e. if there are facets of your that you need to let go of, if you are living a lie for your true destiny, if you have potential that is imprisoned, blocked or denied, etc, etc. If you are living in complete denial, and if the Eclipse closely falls on your planets, then the Earthquake will be horrendous – but could possibly all end up for the good, your eyes will be opened, You could create a better life.

But note that if your life is ‘on-course’ for your authenticity and your spiritual purpose/spiritual path, then the eclipse energies are experienced in a way that is favourable, empowering and enabling.

Vedic Astrology Special Footnote: Note that exceptionally, many planets cast aspects on the position of this particular eclipse. There’s an exceptional situation here, a most powerful special energy mix: Jupiter casts a 5th House aspect from Vedic Libra, Mars casts a 4th House aspect from Vedic Scorpio and Saturn casts a third House aspect from Sagittarius. So these planets too are, exceptionally, also affecting the planets caught up in this Eclipse: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Ketu/South Node.

The Western Astrology Effects of this Eclipse:

I am now going to add to the above, a mention of the effects of this eclipse as depicted by our Western Astrology using the Tropical Zodiac.

Note that Western astrology, using the Tropical Zodiac (which is about 24 deg different from the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac – using Lahiri Ayanamsha) is a psychological depiction. So, this means that all the planetary meanings and energies are actually given a depiction in terms of our psychology, by western astrology.

Note that the fact is that Western Astrology depicts even our karmic/evolutionary astrology in terms of psychological effects of karmas. This is of course extremely needed and valuable, but you do absolutely need to consider the Vedic destiny and incarnational life purpose depiction as well – absolutely so! Do, obviously you consider the effects in your life and in everyone’s life and consciousness of Mercury and Venus and Ketu being caught up in this eclipse, and the fact that this Eclipse is in Aquarius, as described for Vedic Astrology above.

Your Natal House that is affected in your Western Astrology Birth Chart: But beyond the general mass effect of this eclipse, you need to consider the effects on the ‘affairs’ or the ‘Area of Life’,  that are depicted by the House that the Eclipse falls in in your western astrology birth chart. The note that the Eclipse may well fall in a different House in your Western Birth Chart as compared to your Vedic Birth Chart. So, this Eclipse is in my Vedic 8th House (i.e. more destiny orientated) but it is in my Western 7th House (i.e. more psychologically experienced).

Planets Conjunct or Opposite the Eclipse: And, of course, most importantly, look at the effects of this eclipse on your natal planets in your western birth chart, that are +/- three degrees from the Eclipse Sun/Moon at 27 deg in the Western Tropical Zodiac. It’s powerdully significant if the Eclipse falls on one of yoru chart angles. Take into account conjunction, opposition and square aspects cast by the Eclipse AND ITS NODES to your natal planets.

This Eclipse is in Western Aquarius – This is BIG. BIG! Note that Western Aquarius has an energy that gives a person a psychology that is humanitarian, but detached, utopian but eccentric, inspirational if dotty. All these psychological facets will affect the way you will experience this eclipse, so it is good to be aware of this particular Eclipse’s psychology! Aquarius is rebellious and separative as well a inspired.

What happened last time? This needs to be considered carefully! The last time Eclipses occurred in this area of the heavens, and therefore in this are of your birth chart, and therefore in your consciousness and in your life, was in January/February 1999. It may well be useful to go back and remember the themes and shifts that were happening then. Particularly, because of Aquarius’ independent nature, note if you were separating from certain individual and groups then, maybe in order to free yourself, maybe in order to achieve fuller freer life. Take into account here spiritual pathways, groups, individuals.
Look for what’s really significant.

What Shifts are Happening in your life Now? And please do absolutely check out in your life’s significant shift occurrences, NOW. Evaluate them. Support them if you asses them to benefit you. Strategies. Maintain balance. Be caring. Be inspired. Be revolutionary.

And thing may not yet be fully unveiled: Be prepared to acknowledge that the needed NEW may well possibly now still be wholly or partly beyond what you can imagine.

You may need to wait: You may have to wait for the needed NEW to unfold, either wholly or in part.

House and Planets Analysis: Use the keys to discernment offered by the House affairs and the planet energies involved.

Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 3 Astrology Techniques

Michael Conneely

LOK (Lords of Karma) Pt. 3 Astrology Techniques

This is Pt. 3 of my Introduction video/blog to my Lords of Karma series where we hear about the astrology techniques used in western and Vedic Astrology, to understand your planets as Lords of Karma.
Please read LOK Introduction Part One Here This is the cornerstone to the Lords of Karma Series and we would be graetful if you would share it with your friends.
Please read LOK Introduction Part Two Here Healing Approaches

In this Video/Blog series starting December 2017, we meet and seek to heal each of the 13 planets of western and Vedic Astrology, as Lords of Karma (LOK)

Intro Pt. 1 looked at the concept of Karma and Planets. As I said, in Pt. 1, my partner Maggie Pashley and I offer a wide range of invaluable worldwide Healing and Empowerment Methods, with which you may wish to enrol to work with, heal and empower in relation to karmic issues, and these were covered in Intro Pt. 2.

Your Natal Planets as Lords of Karma:

Now, in this 3rd and final part of the Intro to the Lords of Karma series, we look at some of the astrology techniques: What we have heard so far, is that each planet in your birth chart is actually a clear precise and detailed statement of your Karma, of your particular destiny, and of your individual incarnational life purpose. When understood as Lords of Karma, the insight you get from your natal planets is powerful, eye-opening and deep: it’s your opportunity to heal, grow and become more whole.

Your Predictive Planets as Lords of Karma:

And the fact is, also, that each planet acting on your life predictively, in addition acts as a Lord of Karma. Each planet in your predictive astrology, is actually sending a new energy into your life that can be harmonious and supportive, or else really challenging to understand, really hard to cope with and confusingly handle to handle for the best!

Key Questions on Meeting your planets as the Lords of your Karma:

And so, as we examine in my Astrology Readings or we study in one of my Astrology Courses, the karmic impact of each planet in your life, and in your predictive unfolding.
Each deals with the key questions. These are for example:

  • Am I being passive?
  • Am I being open to healing?
  • Am I ready to burn my negative karmas?
  • Am I ready to end the recurring chain of difficult suffering challenging scripts, that my soul chose to be dealt with for this lifetime?
  • Am I ready and willing to become that very special spark that I incarnated to become this time?
  • Can I contact my daemon: my indwelling genius, my own very special spark of individuality?

The whole concept of identifying the manifestation of the Lords of Karma in your life, is woven into the Astrology Readings or the Astrology Courses I offer. And the whole package, including the add on healing modules I have detailed, and also Maggie’s worldwide distance healings, all inform you as to the nature of your karmas and how to understand and heal them.

Some people just want an Astrology Reading.
Other’s want the greater study offered by an Astrology Course.
Still others just want an experience of a Healing:
The choice is yours!

So, what planets will we be meeting in their role as Lords of your Karma?

This Lords of Karma Series, will teach the karmic impact of the thirteen planets of Vedic and Western Astrology. These are:
Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn.
Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron.
Rahu North Node, Ketu South Node.

How do we Assess each of your Planets as Lords of Karma?
Through study of the karmic nature of your planets, we build up a map of the unfoldment of your past lives, this life and your future lives. We do this in the following ways:

Your Birth Chart as a map of your destiny, your karmas and your psychology. We can use psychosynthesis and both psychological and soul predictive unfoldment.

Your Planets: We learn the nature of each Planet: we learn the divine nature of each planet, its archetypal nature. And then we experience each planet through the filters of Sign, House and Aspect in our individual chart. This can be very different from the Divine Nature of that planet.

Signs: Next, we assess the way in which the sign the planet occupies, alters the experience we will have of that planet in our individual life. We use the Sidereal Zodiac to understand the Vedic Astrology manifestation of each planet. Vedic Astrology is geared to accurate declaration of destiny and life purpose. And we use the Tropical Zodiac of Western Astrology to understand how that planet defines our psychological self, our egoic self, and our sub-personalities.

Houses: Next, we understand the way in which the House a planet occupies, alters how we will individually experience it. Each planet, sign and House is an expression of the detail of our Karma, but the 8th House in our Vedic Birth Chart is a very special expression of our fixed and unfixed karmas. It’s the repository of all things unknow and hidden, deeds that need rectification, inheritance and sudden losses. It’s the potential for us to develop intuitively.

Aspects: we next study how aspects between the planets modify the karmic impact of a planet in our life. Within Vedic Astrology we include different Avasthas systems which show the standing of each planet in our chart, and how the planets treat each other.
We take a very especial note of the karmic effects of aspects to Rahu and Ketu, the all-important North Node and South Node of the Moon.

Retrograde planets: We study the very important karmic effects of Retrograde Planets in your Birth Chart. If you have a planet retrograde in your birth chart this has huge karmic effect. You will have difficulties with all the life-principles that your retrograde planet represents and indicates. You will have to take extra car with the principles represented by that planet. You will have to do hard karmic work to get right the nature and function of that planet. You will have got it wrong in past life. Or you will realise in your between-life taking stock that you ar ready to learn more about the life-functions of that planet. And so will have to work extra hard to grow your handling of that planet in this life. Astrological perception around the nature of your manifestation of a retrograde planet in your life is crucial.

The Nodal Axis: The Nodes of the Moon are the chief guide to our main or principal incarnational life purpose, but for this the sidereal zodiac of Vedic astrology should be used. The Tropical zodiac of western astrology depicts the psychological implications of past lives expressed by the position of the nodes, not the full destiny implications, of which your egoic psychology is just a part.

Ketu: In Vedic Astrology, the position of Ketu South Node depicts Past Life that we came from. In Vedic Astrology it is called the ‘camp of the occupying army’.

Rahu: The position of Rahu the North Node in your Vedic Birth Chart (always opposite the South Node) depicts the destination you are thrown towards this life: your destined life path.

The Nodes of the Moon:
However the Nodes in their nature are demons. And the North Node is always surrounded by driven obsession, the smoke of illusion and risks of ‘dark’ connections. So you have to purify your North Node if you are ever to arrive at your destination in this life time. The Nodes in the Vedic Chart are analysed by the House and Sign they occupy, and the planets that aspect them.

Planets square the nodal axis are of particular importance in that the depict ‘missed steps’: areas of life we didn’t get right last time and so have to make special efforts to understand and get right this time.

Atmakaraka: Vedic Astrology has a wonderful system of CharaKarakas, where planet become indicators of special area of our life. And the planet of greatest longitude is called our atmakaraka. In some ways our most important planet, because that planet takes on such special importance for us to get right this time, because we didn’t manage to get it right last time.

Predictive Astrology: We learn about the unfoldment of your Karma through Progressions and Transits, and also through the wonderful ‘predictive periods’ of Vedic Astrology.

Some people love to study the detail of the system though one of my astrology courses. Others prefer to hear the details of their chart expressed in one of my astrology readings. Still others wish for a distance healing.


FOOTNOTE:
What are the ‘Laws of Karma’?

It is of interest to note the five Laws of Karma that are often said to be powerfully at work in our life. You don’t have to believe in reincarnation to have an Astrology Reading of study and Astrology Course, of course:

A. The Law of Correspondences: this states how our birth chart is a map of the heavens which accurately depicts a statement of our individual destiny within the great unfoldment, and which is, indeed, also part of God’s great unfoldment. As above, so below.

B. The Law of Reincarnation: this states how we reincarnate many times to learn our chosen lessons, to burn our negative karmas, to experience, deal with and transform the consequences, and to manifest our own very special sparks of achievement/identity. This law states how from birth to death we take on a coat of flesh which enables us to make our wondrous growth, and how after this life, we return to inner planes to connect with Love, to review, refresh, take stock, correct, prepare for and choose our next life time.

C. The Law of Karma: This is the Law of Cause and Effect. We have to deal with the consequences of our actions. We have to face things. We have to heal. Forgive. Grow. And – always it must be based in LOVE.
And it’s got to be genuine and authentic.

D. The Law of Opportunity: this law states how we need to see the opportunity of our planets and the events and relationships in our life.

E. The Law of Balance: this law states how we need to experience and understand the Divine nature of polarities and apparent opposites, in order to grow in perception and our ability to co-create and help and heal others as well as ourselves.

Michael Conneely

Healing Approaches:

In this Pt. 2, we look into these Healing Approaches in more detail.

The wonderful and powerful Healing methods we offer worldwide range from Heart Wall Clearing to Inner Child work, from Resonating Relationships Healing to Soul Retrieval, from Family Constellation Work to Hypnotherapy. Some are offer by myself, many more are offered by Maggie Pashley. Almost all are offered worldwide.

So first of all, here’s a list of the Healing Modalities offered by myself: These are very special Healing opportunities. They are available at one price if you enrol for them as an independent piece of Healing. Or they are available at a reduced price if you receive them as add-on modules to one of my Astrology Readings or Astrology Courses. Either way, these Healing Modalities are all geared to the development of your karmic awareness and healing. Please email me if you wish to Enrol for one of them:

Healings with myself: Michael Conneely:

Here are six examples:
1. Inner Child Work exercises consist of my sending you questionnaires relating to your developments and experiences through different age ranges, and you answer and review these, leading to your realisation of what your key attitudes are and how they arose, and what you need to do about them. There is cross referencing to your astrology and you are offered a healing culmination in key transformative statements.
2. Family Constellation Work exercises consists of visualising your family members, , raising what’s been forgotten or repressed, a guided journey to meet each, the process cross-refers to your astrology and ends with your ‘taking your place’.
3. Shamanic Journey – individual module
4. Soul retrieval is a shamanic healer technique, where you journey to meet a split of part of yourself, whose existence, often acknowledged in fact can control your life. You identify how and when that pert of you got split off, befriend and integrate your inner child.
(N.B. you have to do module 3 in order to be able to do this module 4)
Modules 3 and 4 are parts of my Shamanic Healer Course: (https://www.earthstarweb.com/shamanic-healer.html ), but people getting these individual units as part of with my astrology readings and courses, receive them at special individual price. I send you Paypal request, and we then focus on the Healing module in addition to the astrology Reading or Course.
4. Astrological Psychosynthesis Work: this is wonderful perception, healing and empowerment. We work to get authentic and embodied experience of how the energy of a planet manifests in your natal and predictive astrology in your life, and then using the psychosynthesis roleplay techniques of Assaglioni, we do work to define how that planets manifests in our life and what to do about him.
Again I send you Paypal request, and we then focus on the Healing module in addition to the astrology Reading or Course.
5. Past Life regression – using audio file or through shamanic session with me personally. This is such a worthwhile exercise.
6. What story are you living? Working with your vision journeys, worksheets and cross reference to your astrology, we work out and seek to heal and empower around the stories that you are living in respect of Archetypes such as: Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Ruler, Magician, Sage, Lover, Destroyer, and others.

Healings with Maggie Pashley:

Maggie’s Healing Modalities utilize her vast range of worldwide distance energy healings:

1. Heart Wall Clearing is a fantastic way of releasing blocks to giving and receiving love, allowing success and greater abundance into our life and to having a better relationship with ourself. It can be done by distance sessions from wherever you are in the world. It makes use of muscle testing to identify trapped emotions caused by rejection, hurt, disappointment and trauma and clears these energetically. Find out more: www.bodycodehealings.com/heart-walls

2. Resonating Relationships – this program identifies negative beliefs we have about Relationships, modes of operating which block connection, nurturing and harmony in a relationship. We then clear those blocks using the Body Code. Find out more here: www.bodycodehealings.com/heart-walls

1. Emotion Code – developed by American chiropractor Bradley Nelson the Emotion Code uses muscle testing to uncover underlying trapped emotions holding us back and then releases them energetically.

2. Body Code – also developed by Bradley Nelson, the Body Code is based on the way he himself worked on clients and is far more extensive than the Emotion Code. It uses muscle testing to undercover imbalances in emotions, nutrition and lifestyle, misalignments, toxins, external interferences, pathogens and then clears them energetically.

3. A Symphony of Possibilities – In an SOP session you will be asked if you could get anything you wished out of the session what would it be? and then uses verbal processing (clearing questions) and energetic healing to bring you into alignment with that desired outcome

4. Access Bars – This is a gentle hands-on process involving lightly touching 32 points on the head to clear out old beliefs, programming, fixed positions that are keeping you stuck. Has been likened to defragging a computer, pressing the delete button on old files in our brain to make room for what we can truly be without the old baggage.

5. Access Body Processes is a gentle hands-on treatment, dialoguing with the body to find out which of over 50 treatment options it currently requires to become freer and more empowered. Can boost immune system, help you reconnect with your body and feel more grounded, release repeating patterns, family scripts and more

6. Breakthrough sessions – designed to help you go beyond areas of stuckness in your life and uses a combination of the many powerful energetic healing techniques Maggie is trained in. Each session is different and tailor-made to your particular situation.

7. Hypnotherapy allows a deep inner focus to access your unconscious mind enabling transformation in a much easier way. Great for fears, phobias, clearing old limiting habits, and developing greater confidence and self-esteem.

8. EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique involves tapping on meridian energy points on the face and hands to rebalance your body’s energies. It has been proven to reduce stress emotions, is effective for fears and phobias, reducing pain and tension. It can help clear unwanted habits and behaviour and create more positive empowering ones.

9. Metamorphic Touch – involves a gentle touch on the feet, hands and head to create an unconditional, open space to connect you with your own inner wisdom and unique gifts and strengths.

10. Bodywork – if you are local or staying at our Sligo Coast airbnb in the West of Ireland, you can choose to have a session of relaxing bodywork. Maggie uses a combination of massage, shiatsu stretches, reflexology and healing to help you feel de-stressed, invigorated and restored.

Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 1

Michael Conneely

Introduction Pt 1. Karma and your Planets

Have you ever wondered how you can read the planets, so as to read your Karma?

This Lords of Karma Video and Blog Series is offered by Michael Conneely, International Astrologer, Shamanic Healer and Author. Michael works with Healer Maggie Pashley, at their Healing Centre in the West of Ireland – and Worldwide.

The Lords of Karma series has 13 Videos and Blogs presenting the way in which each of the planets of Western and Vedic Astrology acts as a Lord of Karma, and then in addition, there are supporting videos, such as this Introduction Video, and also videos dealing with astrological techniques and Healing methods.

Your Karmas and Your Planets:

You can read the planets in your birth chart, so as to read your Karma. You can read them in your astrology birth chart to get a statement of the karmas you were born to work with this time.

Karmas are life scripts and tasks that we absolutely have to work with and experience this time so as to heal and grow.

Some Karmas are fixed and might take a number of lifetimes to ‘burn’. Other of our Karmas are not fixed, and we can heal and burn them and become a more shining human in this lifetime.

And there’s still another group of Karmas which are also very important to identify: these are the special achievements, the special sparks, and the special benefic energy manifestations, that we are born to develop and enjoy and grow and maximise, this time.

In fact, we work on our karmas for our benefit, for the benefit of other humans and for the world, and, also, so as to co-create with the great unfoldment of God experiencing himself which is what drives the eternal creation and destruction of the universes.

It’s important to know that, in addition to your overriding karma, often expressed by the axis of the Nodes of the Moon in your birth chart, there’s actually also a very detailed Karma or in fact ‘cluster of karmas’, around the affairs of each individual planet in your birth chart.

And you can ALSO study your predictive astrology, to see how your Karma is coming into your life during your current predictive period, or in years to come.

To understand our predictive karma manifestations, it is not only useful to look at your current predictive astrology, it is also so enlightening to see what was happening to you when last had a big planet transit involving that same planet as is affecting you this time, and maybe that was years ago. Compare it to the present transit of that planet, and you will get even deeper understanding of your Karma.

So, in what light do you understand the nature of karma? The important principle at play here, is that the operation of Karma is NOT Retributive. It has to be understood with love. It is not a system of Punishment.

So, working with your karmic astrology in this Lord of Karma series, is a system of developing perception and understanding. It is also a system of Healing. And it is a system of Empowerment. And so ultimately, it is also a system of soul growth and helping others.

Forgiveness is so important. Our life is disfigured, and our Karmas made worse, if we live harbouring anger and hatred, or if we live not caring of how we have harmed others in the past.

So often the harm we do to others is the result of our earlier ignorance and the damage done to us. Hopefully we have grown since. But we do have to change our perception and understanding of our Karmic destiny. We have to transform our bad karmic actions in order to now liberate ourselves from their consequences, and also heal others from their consequences.

All my astrology Readings and Courses are geared to Healing. They are never ranted astrological formula. My readings and my courses include expert Vedic Astrology as well as Western psychodynamic and Evolutionary Astrology.

I have five university degrees and I took part in a five year Ethnography: a social-anthropological field study of spiritual forms new to the modern west living in and studying institutions and communities in the pathways of Hinduism, Buddhism, Paganism, Shamanism and Utopian Community.

So do get in touch with me to book an Astrology Reading, enrol on one of my Astrology Courses or work with me on one of my Healing modules. And there’s’ also major and varied independent distance Healings offered worldwide by my partner, Maggie Pashley.


So, this Lords of Karma series teaches how each of the planets in our Astrology birth chart, act in very detailed and definable ways as a Lord of our Karma. This series points to what we are here to experience and how we can best grow through our individual and personal karmic experiences of that planet.

The series also teaches how we work with each of the planets active in our predictive astrology. These are our Lords of Karma also. They bring into our life indication of what we should currently focus on, and what we must work with now, to heal and grow.

We really do need to know the detail of the tides and seasons in our life: so that we can know what to expect, understand their meaning, and decide in an informed way what needs to be done, and how to use the energies we are being presented with. And my Astrology genuinely can shed unparalleled insight onto this.

My Astrology Readings, Astrology Courses and the Healings that my partner Maggie Pashley or myself do with you, really can help you perceive in detail what the truths of your karmas are, and through that, you can go on heal them and so, you can heal and empower your life.

We love doing these Readings and Healings, and its’ a joy to bring clarity to what is working and not working in your life, to what challenges you, and also to presenting ways of healing and empowering yourself, through this work.


This is a big thing to say. So: how does it work?

Karma is often seen by the western mind, as punishment, as pay-back time, and karma is necessarily seen as painful. Karma has bad press. But this is karma misunderstood!

This is not the case at all.

The fact is, that our Karma is the result of our past lives. And our soul chooses which karmas we must work with this lifetime.

And so, yes, we must heal and work with negative karmas which we have built up, and these can be identified by working with our astrology and deciphering the karmic dimensions of each of our planet. And we must have an ethical and loving commitment to ourselves and others to do that.

But it is also crucial to also know that we also start this life with many beneficial karmas. These beneficial karmas can also be identified by working on our astrology. And these beneficial karmas assist us and support us. And most importantly: these beneficial Karmas include very special sparks of skill and gifts and golden reapings from past lives which we incarnate with this time, to develop yet further. Indeed, of course, working with our more negative karmas can also build us up so that our beneficial karmas can also flower.

So, our Karma is not to be seen as a Retribution. It is to be seen as an invitation to develop perception and wisdom and become more whole. So, this is a completely different energy from the traditional western viewpoint.

In fact, astrology can pinpoint very precise definitions of Karmas we have born to work with. This is because our astrology natal chart is actually a map of our karmas (to see how the ‘Law of Correspondences’ works, see below).

Mercury:

And so, for example, the position and standing of Mercury in your birth chart will tell you so very much about your fates and scripts to work with, benefit from and heal in the vast area of communication issues.

Sun:

And so, as another example, the standing of the Sun in your birth chart will tell you so much about issues of Father, but also how and to what extent you are the needed ‘King of your kingdom’ (or not the king if your Sun is Debilitated or Fallen).

So, let’s continue our showing of how your planets are Lords of Karma, with very precise manifestations and potential in you life:

Gandanta:

If one or more of your planets is in one of the three Gandanta Zones of Vedic Astrology (where a water sign transitions into a fire sign) then the affairs of that planet in your life will be insubstantial and weak, and you will experience difficulties around the agenda of that planet, and you will in some ways be insubstantial or weak, and you need to learn how to heal the energy of that planet in your life.

And so, for example, if you have your natal Moon in a Gandanta Zone, this will mean that mother will not be there for you – with all that that entails!

And so for example, if you have Gandanta Sun, this means that Father was not there for you, and this means that in some way you will be insubstantial and weal, ripe to be scapegoated by a dysfunctional family. You’ll find it hard to assert yourself soundly or to chart a strategized way forward.

But, through dealing with the swamping difficulties, the weakness of Gandanta placement of one or more of our planets, does actually potentially open us to inspiration and to growth and healing.

And I particularly mention Gandanta now, as, at the time fo writing (December 2017), there was exceptional activation of the three Gandanta Zones:
* The August 2017 Eclipses were in the Cancer-Leo Gandanta when Rahu North Node passed from the Vedic sidereal zodiac signs of Leo to Cancer.
* Uranus is transiting in the Pisces to Aries Gandanta as I write this, bringing Revolution to many.
* Saturn has passed through the Scorpio to Sagittarius Gandanta.

And, as a real challenge to me, Mercury has passed through that same Scorpio to Sagittarius Gandanta, and he’s just turned retrograde today, and he passes back through it again. And then he turns direct once more, and goes through that Gandanta Zone for the third time!!!!!

Please know that if you understand the nature of each planet as fully as possible, you will more correctly perceive and recognise what that planet is bringing to your life generally or in your current predictive period. And this way you will so much the better be able to cooperate with what is being offered to you. You will so much the better be able to burn your negative Karmas and you will so much better be able to manifest your own very special sparks of achievement and beauty that are your positive Karmas. This is because astrological study of each planet accurately defines what positive and negative karmas are wrapped into each of your planets, and what to do about them.

The Outer Planets:

As another example of how you can gain Karmic understanding and bring healing and empowerment, it is so illuminating, crucial and necessary to earn how the ‘outer planets’ of Western Astrology define our start karma in life, and bring us karmic energies at astrologically predictable phases in our life.

These Outer Planets are the Gods of Change: Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron the Wounded Healer. And just like all the planets, they deliver Karma very specific to you and your life.

It really is true that we fail to perceive and work with our Karmas at our peril.

And, conversely, we so enrich and heal our life (and also the lives of others), if we do develop ever better perception of the nature and divine purpose of our planets’ karmas, and heal them, and heal our life.

The Varga Charts of Vedic Astrology: Divisional Charts:

And as a final example of how we can use astrology to identify and work with our karmas, whether difficult or beneficial, I thought I should mention Vedic Astrology’s wonderful series of divisional charts, called ‘Varga charts’.

These Vedic Astrology Varga Charts are additional to the Vedic birth chart. Please note here, that Vedic Astrology uses the Sidereal Zodiac as opposed to the Tropical Zodiac of Western Astrology, and note that each Varga chart which is derived from the Vedic birth chart, makes immense and powerful declaration about a specific area of your life.

So, for example, if you have your Jupiter with a super-high score across all your Varga charts, you will have great sense of purpose when Jupiter is activated by predictive period. I am referring here to the wonderful Vedic Astrology Dasas system: predictive periods and subperiods that unfold from the moment of your birth based on the position of the Moon at that moment).

However, note that even if you are in a Dasa ruled by a powerful planet, you’ll maybe also need to learn how to actually manage such vastness of expansion. The Big Question raised here is: ‘Is your Sun strong enough to coordinate it all???’


So, these few brief examples offered, above, each give you some introductory idea of how each planet in your astrology chart is actually a carrier of your all-important karma, and can act as a gateway to your healing and empowerment.

But please also realise that you can learn how to identify your karmas, whether natal or predictive; you can learn how to work with them, you can learn how to heal them and you can learn how to empower around them. I offer you these insights when you have one of my astrology readings, or by studying on one of my astrology courses. These astrology readings and courses can give you immense and precise insights into your karmas: how to manage your Karmas, how to heal your Karmas, How to discover the buried gold. How to find Light out of apparent Darkness.

Remember, some of our Karmas will be hard and difficult, they can’t be evaded because they are the needed challenges for us to work on and succeed with. And until you spiritually and psychologically mature it is likely that you will have done some damage by not understanding your karmas. But even that can be of value, due to the perception that it is the dark that can lead you to the light. And we must always remember also that this is a journey that must be accompanied by love and forgiveness with all concerned.

Through my astrology readings and courses, and the associated vision work and Healings, I will help you understand and work with them all.

I combine Western Astrology with Vedic Astrology.

I want to make the point that Vedic Astrology gives an accurate destiny statement of how each planet will function in your chart and in your life – and predictively as well. It gives an incarnational life purpose statement and states how your planets treat each other. As such, Vedic Astrology when properly done, is a breathtakingly accurate depiction of your Karmas.

Western astrology, on the other hand, depicts our psychological self, and so study of our Western Astrology chart will tell us how we will experience our destiny and our past lives psychologically.

Vedic Astrology will depict these to us in a much vaster way, of which our psychological self is but a part – though a crucial part of course, because since the age of the Enlightenment, we Westerners are in large part: psychological beings.

And so, my Astrology readings and courses, and the associated healing and journey work I offer, can all show you what you can do to develop your perception as to the nature of your karma in this life time. They point to the ways you can empower and heal around your karma. They point to the ways you can even transcend the formula of your Karmas in this life time. They go beyond formulaic astrology, into the divine areas of soul astrology!

You can now go to Pt. 2 of this Introduction video to hear about our healing methods, and then go to Pt 3 to be introduced to some of the astrological techniques used.
