Have an Astrology Reading with Michael Conneely

Michael has worked for over twenty years as an international astrologer. He is highly trained in both the sure and ancient declaration of Vedic or Indian Astrology, as well as the more psychological expertise of the best of Western Astrology, such as psychodynamic astrology and Evolutionary Astrology.

You can have an astrology reading from Michael in two ways:
The first is worldwide on-line.
The second way of receiving Michael’s astrology Reading is face to face in the West of Ireland, if you are a guest at the Healing centre in Foxford in County Mayo with its amazing accommodation in the fabulous beauty of the far West of Ireland.

Michael Conneely has an MA from the University of Oxford, also postgraduate degrees in psychology and Sociology and qualifications in counselling: five degrees in all.
Michael also worked in a field study of spiritual forms new to the modern West for five years from 1998. His focus study areas were individuals, institutions and communities in the spiritual pathways of Hinduism, Buddhism, Paganism, Shamanism and Utopian Community. Michael thus has a unique and exceptional awareness of a very wide range of spiritual pathways and their issues.

Michael is also caring and extremely thorough, and all his Readings include intuitive dimensions as well as astrological analysis: use of Tarot guidance.

Michael is always attuned to the healing potential in any situation and has extensively studied many ways of healing and empowerment.

What are the benefits of Michael’s Astrology Readings?

You receive very good clarity about your life or a situation.
Michael’s readings highlight the strengths and weaknesses in your personality and life that you need to be aware of.
The Readings create strategies for moving forward.
The Readings highlight clearly your issues in relationship.
The Readings help you understand your life purpose.

What you get:

My Astrology Readings are expert. What I say to you is recorded and they are offered worldwide. Screen share is available so you can see the charts I refer to as I speak. The recordings are both audio and also video so that you can see the screen-share of your various charts that are being referred to.

My Readings last up to two hours, depending on the option you choose. You receive charts, selected reports and you have every follow-up opportunity for your questions/discussion. These are Life and Soul Readings in both Vedic and Western Astrology.

Powerful Accurate Readings

Are you at a crossroads? Trying to understand a life situation or relationship? Maybe you are stuck in a job that doesn’t feel right for you or find it difficult to understand your skills and strengths.

Here’s where a really good astrology reading can help bring clarity, allow you to understand yourself better, see the underlying patterns in your life with greater depth and compassion as well as understanding how best to use the current energies that you personally are experiencing in the best possible way.

A good reading should be empowering, not a list of predestined statements which makes you feel you have little choice. I will work with you to understand the unique set of energies you have been born with, the current astrological period in your life and how best to work with it, help you see the choices that are available to you.

What makes my reading different is not only are my readings personalised to you but also they combine both Western and Vedic Astrology, tarot guidance and empowering healing strategies.

Why is this important to me?

Well I believe Western astrology is really good at explaining our psychodynamics, and Vedic Astrology is expert at defining the soul’s journey and in my opinion can often be more accurate and declarative: then tarot can help bring in intuition to further define what emerges from the astrology reading. And finally I can point to healing modalities if necessary that can help deal with difficult scripts or strengthen weak aspects in your chart.

In short I want to give you an astrology reading that can make a real practical difference in your life.

Retrograde Planets in your birth chart – what do they mean?

Michael Conneely

Retrograde Planets in your birth chart – what do they mean?

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

One of my wonderfully able students sent this in. I do feel so blessed with my students. You too can enroll on my psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology course or one of my Vedic Astrology courses I teach several: choose the one that’s right for you: my Foundation Master Vedic Astrology Course, my Nakshatras course, or my five wonderful advanced Vedic astrology course options.

OR you can book in for one of my caring worldwide astrology readings, and learn all about your Retrograde planets and how best to shape your life around them, and so much more: my astrology readings are exceptionally learned, thorough and caring.

Retrograde planets are there to point to and attract attention to something in particular.  Their influence may also manifest in a twisted, crooked, stranger way (vakri) and may lead to problems.  The ultimate aim, as in anything, should be to become aware of such and observe what areas of one’s life are difficult as a result of this twist.  One can make harder effort to concentrate more and try to correct what the planet suggests.  There may also be a hidden gift / touch of genius / out of ordinary despite the trouble the retrograde position creates.  It may be an opportunity to become aware of such and get in touch with that part of oneself.

I personally have Mercury retrograde in my birth chart, and I have to really try to keep on top of filing and IT issues, especially when there’s a period of Mercury Retrograde coming up in the heavens as well.

A Planet is termed ‘Retrograde’ if it has backward motion in the heavens as viewed from Earth. You will have Retrograde Planets in your birth chart if one or more of your planets was travelling backwards in the skies at the moment you were born.
What effect does this have in your life?

Having these planets retrograde at birth gives us an extra challenge out of which we can arrive at a more spiritual use of their energy.
The energy and meaning of a Retrograde Planet in your birth chart is expressed more on an inner level. The easy expression and the needs and urges represented by the planet are held back or blocked in your particular life.

This is a Fate or a Challenge that is there for your learning. Your soul chose this learning when it chose to incarnate. The reasons lie in past lives. Retrogrades give us the chance to really get our teeth onto a matter, because we are forced to go over old ground again and again. This may get frustrating and tedious, but ultimately it is very useful, for tackling something karmic we may have been avoiding and that we have to address once and for all. In Vedic Astrology, the term for retrograde planets is known as ‘Vakri’ meaning twisted, crooked, roundabout, indirect, evasive or ambiguous. Vakra Asana in Yoga twists the body to strengthen the spine. Retrograde Planets twist their energies and meanings round, to make them unclear, to teach you their message in an indirect way, to strengthen you and correct the course of your lives. The negative potential you have to learn to move away from is that they can be twisted thinkers, crooked, hard to understand or even dishonest. This teaches you to use the planet’s energy in the right way. If you have a lot of Retrograde Planets in your birth chart, this means that you soul chose a broad spectrum of hard lessons in re-learning about the facets of life and existence represented by the planets, this time round.

So having inward-directed or blocked energies from one or more Retrograde Planets is not the end of the story, it’s an opportunity! By experiencing the frustrations and the handicaps, we can apply ourselves to learning that life lesson and grow. There will often be peak experiences in your life which give you second or third or further chances to learn to express that planet at its best in your life. We ‘absorb’ the energies of a planet if it is retrograde in our birth chart, rather than radiate those energies outwards. This is due to the need to learn more about that planet due to past lives.

From a karmic point of view, the Retrograde Planet represents a life lesson, a challenge that must be met in order to deal with unfinished business and clear the path for future progress.

Let’s take Retrograde Saturn in the birth chart as an example:

Many clients with Saturn Retrograde in their charts who report that they lacked a proper father figure in their lives when they were growing up. (The reasons varied, perhaps father was absent or very passive or perhaps he was overly strict, tyrannical.) Many of these people later became determined to be good parents and positive role models for their own children, to make up for what they themselves felt they had missed out on.

A retrograde Saturn makes the individual seek a different kind of responsibility and purpose in life. The person may be challenged by either the father or other authority figures to take more responsibility for their actions. Through the past life experiences, they answer their critics with a slow persistence of reaching their goals in life. Where the planet is by house and where it rules shows the area where they will have to strive hard for success. A retrograde Saturn builds the character to accept small gains in the long process of success. Security issues need to be addressed in their present life and only when the ego does not interfere, does the individual feel a sense of peace. Saturn’s sign in the chart is where the person needs to address the demands and responsibilities of life.

'Nature versus Nurture' Astrology Readings and Courses – Post 1

Michael Conneely

 

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

In psychodynamic western astrology it’s totally illuminating to look at the issue of ‘Nature versus Nurture’ in your life.

This is the first of two Posts on this subject.

In all my Astrology Readings, I combine Western Astrology (both psychodynamic and Evolutionary western astrology) with Vedic Astrology. The result is a uniquely thorough and totally exceptional window into your life and future.

And, moreover  I’ve got a June 2016 special discount offer as well on my readings, see: http://www.starwheelastrology.com/buy.html

So: what is the astrology of your Nature v. Nurture?

Planets in signs are our inherited Nature.

Planets in houses are our Nurture or the effect of our upbringing – most especially our earliest upbringing.

In other words, this is the ‘Nature versus Nurture’ debate. The Question is: ‘Who are we?’: are we our Nature or are we our Nurture?

Of course we are both: we are a mixture, and it is great psychological illumination to be able to consider the statement psychodynamic astrology offers on this question:

What parts of us are our Nature? what parts of us are the effect of our Nurture?

What was pretty well wiped out from our Nature by our Nurture? Can we retrieve it?

What was positively added by our Nurture? can we optimize it to overcome difficult inheritance?

And of course we can – and indeed we must go on from psychological insight to transformation and healing using that insight.

Note that all my Astrology Readings and Courses are attuned to the need to avoid from sticking at legalistic even disempowering astrological declaration. They have the over-riding imperative to go on to use the astrological declaration to in fact to achieve needed healing and empowerment: to use the astrological insight to achieve the special reason we incarnated to become this life time.

Here’s how the system of Nature versus Nurture works in western psychodynamic astrology:

Here’s a Case Example: a sample western astrology birth chart using Astrocalc: a man’s birth chart:

Michael Chart Astrocalc

 

Here’s the same man: his western astrology birth chart using Megastar:

Michael Chart Huber

 

So, now, working from the birth chart, here is the man’s  ‘Nature v. Nurture’ statement in psychodynamic western astrology, called a ‘Dynamic Counting Table’:

Michael Chart Dynamic Counting

 

Notice that the Dynamic Counting Table assesses the effect of Nurture on the Nature with reference to Modalities and Elements (These are defined below)

The Dynamic Counting Table is the key Table which shows the effect of your Nurture (= most especially your earliest upbringing) on your Nature (= your inherited makeup).

So, still looking at the above example chart in terms of Modalities, you can easily see that this man’s upbringing or his nurture made him far more Cardinal than he were born to be.

In other words he was stressed to get noticed from the moment of his birth, he was stressed to push himself forwards to fill the gap: the deficit in love and attention.

His Cardinality was artificially increased from 41 points to 68 points, a huge increase! This will distort the way he lives and will stress him out and cause pressure on the adrenals and much more pressures in the body, and also distort relating patterns.

And still looking at the above chart example, in terms of Elements, you can easily see that his Fire was put out and his Water was greatly increased.

In other words, his Fire = ‘will and action’ had a cold deathly hand put on it, but his Water = ‘intuition and sensitivity’ was greatly increased as he tried to work out and understand what on earth were all the painful and distorting pressures he had been born into. Water puts out Fire!

So notice that his ‘overall signature’ in terms of his Nature is: Cardinal Fire (in other words he was born to be an Arian, a ‘must have it now Action Man’).

But his earliest Nurture/Upbringing wiped out his capacity for real actual action and created a new overall signature. It made him two very different things as an overlay or almost as a ‘wipe-out’: instead, as a result of his Nurture, he’s an equal balance of ‘Cardinal Earth’ (= Capricorn) and ‘Cardinal Water’ (= Cancer, mothering and caring, sensitive, clinging)

MOST IMPORTANT NOTES:

To see the meaning of Modalities and Elements, see note 1 below.

To see the difference between Western astrology and Vedic Astrology see note 2 below. My Readings and course always include both: see my websites listed at the foot of this Post.

NOTE 1: MODALITIES AND ELEMENTS:

Your life is greatly affected in terms of the balances of your modalities and elements. So please note that Nature and Nurture are assessed in western psychodynamic astrology in terms of modalities and elements. Modalities are ways of going about things; elements are qualities of being. Here is more information on these:

MODALITIES:

Cardinal energy is extrovert, initiatory, working and doing

Nature v Nurt Cardinal signs

 

Fixed energy is stabilizing, security, seeking and acquisitive

Nature v Nurt Fixed signs

 

 

 


Mutable
energy is restless, reflective, seeking and changeable

Nature v Nurt Mutable signs

 

 

 

ELEMENTS:

Fire is vitality spontaneity, intuitive faith in one’s own abilities

Earth is practical, efficient, realistic, sensual and security-conscious

Air is communicative, rational, thinking, emotionally detached

Water is feeling, sensitive, emotional, instinctive

Nature v Nurt signs Modality and Element

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOTE 2: WESTERN AND VEDIC ASTROLOGY:

Modern western psychodynamic astrology, when expertly interpreted, accurately depicts our psychological make-up, the sub-personalities within us and issues of individuation and wholeness.

Vedic astrology which is far more ancient and powerful and accurately identifies the journey of the soul. It identifies the journey we were born to undertake. It describes the physical and psycho-mental circumstances we will attract into our lives as fates for us to work with. Vedic astrology asserts that these fates are chosen with reference to past karmas that have accrued in previous lives. Some of these karmas are fixed (drida): there is little we can do about them: we need to experience them =for a life-time in order to make the growth we need to undertake; other of our karmas are not fixed (adrida) – these we can learn to modify or eliminate or ‘burn’.

(Of course there’s far more to it than just that!!!)

Fabulous June discount on Michael Conneely’s astrology readings – Healings too!

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Get 15% off all my astrology readings throughout June

Many people are contacting me now because the energies of this time are not at all easy.

It is always a pleasure for me to use my astrological knowledge to empower my clients to be able to work with their innate abilities and challenges and understand how to get the best out of each transit.

For this reason I’ve decided to offer a 15% discount across all my astrology readings for the month of June to make it even easier for people to reach out and get the support they need.

My Astrology Readings are already exceptional value in that they combine both Western Astrology and Vedic Astrology which I believe presents a much fuller and clearer picture of what is going on.

In addition I have developed a special expertise in the energies prevailing until the end of January 2017 and how to develop the best perception of their meaning including how to best manage the Mind and make decisions and strategies in your life; how to use them for your healing, how to use them for your empowerment.

But more than that, because my astrology readings and western and Vedic Astrology courses have always been taught with the view to defining what is the most healing and empowering way of handling your situations and the energies at the time, this Special Offer is now also optionally linked to a wide range of healings:

My partner Maggie Pashley is also offering a 15% discount on her healings (not workshops) throughout June.

Basically very challenging energies in fact run until the end of January 2017. Though how each one of us will personally experience them depends on how the chart for ‘Now’ each day relates to our own personal birth chart.

In the Vedic Astrology Teaching, the challenges are summed up by three current configurations:
A. A malefic Saturn-Mars conjunction now transiting in Vedic sign of Scorpio.
B. The potentially risky Jupiter-Rahu (North Node) conjunction now transiting in the Vedic sign of Leo.
C. All planets in the heavens get caught up in the divisive and challenging energy of Kal Sarpa Yoga from 28th September to end January 2017. Kal Sarpa Yoga means that all planets are enclosed within the Nodal Axis: the Mouth of the Serpent. And the fact that the Moon will spend half of each month within the Nodes and half isolated outside the Nodes will also pose challenge for the stability of our Minds and emotions, and the quality of our decisions and relationships.

To take advantage of this wonderful astrology offer, go to my Starwheel Astrology Buy page:
and use the following Discount Code in the Shopify final checkout
15ASTRO  for 15% all readings in June 2016

And to get the special 15% discount on Maggie’s healings go to her Shopify page and enter the code MAGGIEJUNE. Healings on offer include hypnotherapy, EFT, Body Code and Emotion Code, Access Bars and Access Body Processes, and Metamorphic Technique. You can also find more information on Maggie and how she works at www.maggiepashley.com but note the discount code can not be used through this site.

Maggie is also offering 30 minute taster sessions of Access Bars and Access Body Processes for only £15 throughout June. See what she says about this offer

What are the days each month when our Mind/emotions might be very supported – or else unstable?

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

People have asked me how they can find information as to days when our Mind/emotions might be very supported – or else unstable.

This is one of the many special features you receive from me in my expert Astrology Readings which always combine western with Vedic Astrology and also can link to healing and empowerment work.

wild manThe daily position of the Moon is a very big factor in our mental stability, our mood, our success or failure in life, love and work – though of course it is not the only factor!

So, how does this work?

Well, the Moon stays in the same sign in Vedic Astrology for two and a half days at a time, then it moves on to the next sign, and so on through all 12 signs, taking a month to complete the full round.

Vedic Astrology has a system of scoring the strength of each sign in your Vedic birth chart called the Ashtakavarga system.

If the Moon is in one of your low score signs for any two and a half day period, then that’s a challenge.

But if the Moon is in one of your high score signs for the two and a half day period, then you will feel buoyant and supported.

vedic-astrology-chart-south-indianHere’s what the Vedic birth chart looks like (South Indian style).

So, to orientate you, you can see that the sign names are shown in the following sequence along the top row is: Pisces, Aries, Taurus and Gemini.

What your individual and personal Moon Ashtakavarag chart does is give a score for the strength of each of these 12 signs.

So, once I have given you this chart (as just one small part in one of my astrology readings), what you do now is note which of your signs have low scores and which of your signs have high scores.

N.B. You have to use the Vedic signs (which use the Sidereal zodiac), not the Western signs (which use the tropical zodiac).

Right: next step: the Moon takes a month to go round the heavens.

Low score days: Note that during the two and a half days per each month while the Moon is in a Vedic sign with a low score in your Moon Ashtakavarga chart, you will be more likely to experience mental fluctuations and instabilities of the mind, also fears and obsessions and mental unsupportedness,.

A low score is 3 or under. A score of 2 is not easy, 1 is bad and 0 is seriously unstable for the mind/emotions.

High score days: The maximum score is 8 points. A score of 6 to 8 points will feel like you are buoyant and your mind well supported.

Just having this perception and being able to check up on the Moon’s position in the lunar calendar is very helpful. It’s like receiving a weather forecast.

But knowing that you could be in for a bad two and a half days for the stability and best functioning of your mind, what do you do about it?

Well, Mantra is good for stabilising the mind.

But I also teach wonderfil inspiring links to healing modalities, to art work, embiodiment work and to various shamanic techniques as well.

And how do you find which Vedic sign the Moon is occupying on any given day?

Well, you can use an on-line ephemeris for vedic astrology.

But this information about the effect of the Moon’s position on the stability of your mind is  but just one tiny part of the wonderful insight you will receive from me in one of my Readings.
