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.

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:

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

Nikki’s video:

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,

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:
www.timeanddate.com

See the charts for this 15th February 2018 Eclipse: You can have a look at both the Vedic and Western charts for this eclipse on my wonderful  2018 Astrology Website Page: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html

And see our Astrology and Healing Newsletter for the Astrology of February 2018 in all its detail, plus a presentation of Heart Wall Healing: Clearing Blocks to Love:  blog.starwheelastrology.com/astrology-and-healing-magazine-february-2018/

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.

Astrology & Healing Magazine January 2018

Michael Conneely

Here is the NEW MONTHLY Astrology and Healing Magazine.

This Magazine is brought to you by Maggie Pashley and Michael Conneely, from their Healing Centre of the Atlantic Coast of Sligo in the West of Ireland.

A new issue of this Astrology and Healing Magazine will be brought out on the first weekend of every month.

Its aim is to present a depiction from Maggie’s vast range of Healing Techniques, offered both in our Centre – and Worldwide using technologies such as Skype and Zoom

And also the whole thrust of Michael’s Astrology: expert Vedic and Western Astrology for each month. Never be formulaic: but a gateway to our Healing and Empowerment. A key to understanding and working with our karmic scripts. Orientated to our achieving that special spark which our soul chose for us to seek to learn to manifest this time.

First of all: Healing:

Hypnotherapy from Maggie Pashley – the easy way to keep to your New Year’s goals or to make desired changes to your life in 2018

The turn of the year invites many people to choose something different, something healthier, wiser, more abundant, more ease-filled and yet by mid-January most ‘resolutions’ have already fallen by the wayside.

There can be different reasons for that. Maybe they weren’t really our goals in the first place – just what we thought we should be expected to want or to try and please somebody else.

Maybe we weren’t motivated enough to make the change and we fell back to the more familiar patterns of our life. Maybe we have a pattern of self-sabotage so that we can’t allow ourselves to succeed or go beyond what we have been or believe we can have and be. Or maybe we just ran out of steam because relying on will power alone is exhausting and hard.

The good news is that hypnotherapy can make making those desired changes easy or at least much easier.

As a hypnotherapist of many years I’ve helped people do lots of things more easily than they thought possible. I’ve helped people give up smoking, pass driving tests, pass driving instructor tests (yes they get to be on the other side too), have healthier eating habits, find exercise enjoyable, have better sex, win a boxing competition, take the stress out of IVF, give birth more easily, release phobias of flying, spiders, going out and more unusual fears, stop being haunted by trauma, learn better at school and a whole host of other things. A real mixed bag and I’ve met some delightful, courageous and willing clients who knew there should be more to life and were open enough to give hypnotherapy a go.

Hypnotherapy is effective as it harnesses the power of our own unconscious mind. Our unconscious is amazing. It runs all the different systems of our body, keeps us safe, helps us learn from life’s experiences, drive our car without thinking through every manoeuvre and on and on. All those things that we do habitually are guided by our unconscious, so it makes sense that when we want to change a habit then communicating with the unconscious is essential. And when we engage with our unconscious to make those changes, they seem natural, easy and even enjoyable.

My job as a hypnotherapist is to engage with my client’s unconscious mind, to use compelling, sensory language to create new desired experiences and to allow my client’s unconscious guide them there as elegantly as possible.

It is reminding my clients of all their resources, skills and natural abilities that they can bring to bear on the present problem. It is uncovering unconscious blocks – behaviours which may have a positive intent in some way but which actually limit choice and the ability to succeed.

It is dissolving old traumas so that the past doesn’t haunt and contaminate the present.

I love doing hypnotherapy as during a session I have to go into a mild trance state myself which is highly enjoyable. Most of my clients find their sessions surprisingly pleasurable. They go away with more confidence, insights and clarity, less pain, feeling more relaxed in their body and it is wonderful for me to see the change as they walk out my door, or we end the on-line session. And if you have ever wondered who is in charge in a session, it is YOU. You will only do what feels right for you and won’t do anything that goes against your values and what is important to you. At the same time your mind can become more open to recognising far more choices than it thought were available.

Here is the Part 1 video for January 2018 Astrology:

Here is the Part 2 video for January 2018 Astrology:

We start our journey to perceive and work with the energies of January 2018 with the Transit of Uranus:

1. Uranus

For some people, Uranus will be the star performer in January 2018.
After a long Retrograde, Uranus is on station at the start of the month. This is at 0 degrees Vedic Aries, using the Sidereal Zodiac and at 24 Western Aries using the Tropical Zodiac. He turns Direct on January 3rd.
Uranus is a God of Change. He is a Lord of Karma. If you have a planet in this area or opposite it – especially if that planet’s your Sun or Moon (or both!!!), this means driven revolution: the chance to manifest your own very special spark.
Or for youngsters around age 21, they will be having their revolutionary ‘Uranus Square: Transiting Uranus is square to their natal Uranus, and there could be a big move of house or career. And of course, there’s the Uranus Opposition and other Square to watch out for too in your predictive astrology!
But remember, Uranus’ energy is driven and inhuman, so you have to be careful of how you treat yourself and others.
Uranus is inspiration, and the inspiration can be sudden like lightning strike, or intermittent like beams of sunlight filtering through the branches of the trees.
Be careful not to stay in your own very special Saturn blocked scripts, tramlines or alternatively prison – and so be careful not to fail to express the inspiration Uranus is favouring you with. If you don’t express it, your life will be left incomplete and bereft.
Uranus to Moon brings up Mother issues and move of house.
Note that the last time a Uranus’ transit into Aries occurred in the past meant the Burning of the Reichstag, the rise of Adolph Hitler, and the Second World War.

2. Saturn

So, 2018 starts with Saturn, maybe Chief Lord of our Karma, at 7 deg Vedic Sagittarius (1 deg Western Capricorn). Saturn reaches 17 deg Vedic Sagittarius by end 2018 and Saturn transits through Jupiter’s sign of Sagittarius until mid-2022.
Saturn is contractive. Sagittarius is expansive, so all the while we will be encouraged (or pressurised) to find working balance between expansion and contraction, and get the containers and structures right in our consciousness and in all the areas of our life, especially the area of our life defined by the House that Sagittarius is in our Vedic birth chart.
Saturn’s energy demands of us patience and hard work and fulfilling our karmic responsibilities. His reward is either grim reaping or golden reaping, depending on how we fulfill his demands. Negatively, he’s cementing ourselves into our blocks, limitations and blinkers – not to mention our fears!
Saturn entered Vedic Sagittarius on 26th October 2017, passing through the immaterial, uncertain, confidence-lacking but potentially inspirational Gandanta Zone that is at 4 deg either side of the junction of the transition points from Vedic Water Signs to Vedic Fires Signs, also entering therefore the 19th Nakshatra: Mula. Mula is ruled over by the Dark Goddess, Niritti.
And The energies of Saturn and Niritti couldn’t be much more different!
And so the dance of the Dark Goddess demands that we smash Saturn blocks that we should no longer cling it.
Whereas, at the same time Saturn is still demanding of you that you obey his hard laws.
What a difficult conflicting demand.
But Vedic astrology is Tantric. It is all about the achievement of enlightened perception by the reconciliation of apparent opposites.
So, if we can get it together and have the needed authenticity and courage, Saturn’s entry into Mula is a time where we can ride two very different horses at once: diligence and structure, coupled with inspirational Death and rebirth!

Saturn and Venus: Also Note that Saturn and Venus are both together briefly in Sagittarius at this time, and so this can be good financial/property/inheritance news for Vedic Cancer Ascendant people, whose 4th and 11th Houses are ruled by Venus, and whose 7th and 8th Houses are ruled by Saturn.

Ashtama Shani: Saturn is transiting Vedic Sagittarius in the year ahead. If Vedic Sagittarius
is the 8th from the House occupied by the Moon in your birth chart, this will be Ashtama Shani: Saturn transits 8th House from Moon, and you really do need to know what this means and how to handle it! Get a Reading. You need to hear how to handle Saturn’s transit of your 22nd Drekkana at this time.

Sade Sate: As I said, Saturn is transiting Vedic Sagittarius in the year ahead.
If your Moon is in Vedic Sagittarius in your Vedic Birth Chart, well, you are in the middle of Sade Sate and you really do need to know what that means and how to handle it, and it is such a good idea to get a timetable of your Sade Sate energies from me to see: when are the really difficult times? when are the phases of ‘fool’s paradise times’? what does Sade Sate mean for you individually and particularly in your life? It’s a time of separations and despondence and being cut off from God’s grace with the divine purpose of thus being made to see yourself as you really are, and do something about that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Scorpio, then you are now entering the final two and a half years of Sade Sate. Learn how to handle that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Capricorn, then you are starting the seven and a half years Sade Sate, and you would do very well indeed to get a reading of guidance about that!!!

Saturn Return: And note that if you are around age 28 or 59, you will be having your SATURN Return, and I can give you great guidance about that that means.

Planets in Vedic Gemini? N.B. With Saturn transiting in Vedic Sagittarius all 2018, it’s going to be a hard, tough year for those people with Sun or Moon, and other planets, in Vedic Gemini in their birth chart. The Nakshatras affected by this are Mrigashira, Ardra and Punarvasu.

3. The Nodes of the Moon: Rahu/North Node and Ketu/South Node:

Rahu entered Vedic Cancer at the time of the violent August 2017 Eclipses, and in so doing Rahu went then went through another of the three Gandanta Zones: Leo to Cancer (Rahu’s motion is always retrograde).
This was at around the same time as Saturn (above) went through the Scorpio to Sagittarius Gandanta zone, thus increasing the feeling of insecurity and almost ‘drowning.
And as described above, this is at the same time as Uranus is transiting in the Pisces-Aries Gandanta Zone, so this can make us feel weak and insecure if we have planets in these three Gandanta Zones, and yet we can hopefully find great Meaning and Inspiration at this weird time, if we know how to look for it and identify it.
And just to add to the intense Gandanta energy activation, Mercury is transiting through the Vedic Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta zone from 1st – 9th January to (crossing into Vedic Sagittarius on 7th January).

Rahu’s energy is driven, and even more so if Cancer is your 1st House! And Rahu can be surrounded with the smoke of delusion. We need his energy to push forward to realize our incarnational goals in this lifetime, but we must not fall into the abyssal traps he opens up.
So, if Cancer is your first house, you will be driven feverishly to express yourself, whereas Ketu, always opposite Rahu, might spiritualize your 7th house of relationship, or even blow it open.
And if, for example, Rahu is transiting over your Sun at this time, you will be driven to express yourself more powerfully and successfully in all areas.
Because Rahu is transiting in the sign of Cancer, we will have quite a driven desire for emotional security in 2018, and we need to honour this.
And beware that Ketu transiting through Capricorn could impair your commitment to your material security. Beware Pollyanna or Drain.
And here’s another example: if Capricorn is your 4th House, transit there could make your home more spiritual, but you would need to be aware of the Ketu’s risk of lack of confidence about your roots of life.
The Nodes remain in the Vedic Cancer / Capricorn axis until 7th March 2019. Then, the Node change sign to the Gemini – Sagittarius axis, transiting there for about eighteen months, and following this change in the nodal axis, it has meant in the past that a booming economy gets replaced by an economic collapse.

Planets Square the Nodal Axis: Note that both Jupiter and Mars are square the Nodal Axis at this time. This means that any child born around this time will have the energy qualities and scripts of those two planets as Karmic missed steps: qualities they did not get right last life-time: qualities with a special demand to get right this lifetime.

Kal Sarpa Yoga: Talking of the Nodes of the Moon, do note that the Kal Sarpa Yoga is in force in January 2018. Realistically, the Kal Sarpa Yoga energy should be said to be extant in the Heavens until 15th February.
Kal Sarpa Yoga is when all the Vedic planets are to one side of the chart between Rahu/North node and Ketu/South Node.
This can create divisiveness and perpetual phases of insecurity and fluctuation. This is partly because for half of each month the Moon is within the other planets, and for the other part of each month the Moon is out in the untenanted half of the chart, meaning that the Moon is alone and unsupported in the Heavens, giving rise to obsessions, fears, doubts etc.
It creates a very big spiritual and consciousness and also relationships challenge in the chart of a child to be born at the time of Kal Sarpa Yoga.
12th January: Saturn is conjunct Mercury

4. Jupiter:

Jupiter has been transiting through Vedic Libra from 12.9.2017, bringing his enlargement, purpose and blessing to the area of life represented by libra in your Vedic birth chart, so for example if libra is your 4th House, you could have a beneficial move of home and or do loads of home beauty and improvements.
Jupiter in Libra bring general growth in relationships and creativity.
Jupiter is opposition Uranus: And note that Jupiter is still opposition Uranus in Vedic Aries, so for Aries and Libra people, this can mean sudden expansion. Uranus is Retrograde at the start of 2018, but soon goes direct, so watch out for, be open to Inspiration and Revolution, and sudden forward impetus to burst out of your prison walls, tear up your tramlines, and move forward in the realization of that special talent your soul chose for you to work to manifest and express yourself in this lifetime!
January 15th : Jupiter sextile Pluto.
Jupiter moves from Vedic Libra to Vedic Scorpio on October 11th, 2018. There is therefore a transition in Jupiter’s manifestation from the idealism and beauty of Libra to the hurt secretiveness and aggression of Scorpio.

5. Mars:

Mars is transiting Vedic Libra in the first half of January 2018, so if you have say Sun or Ascendant there, be on the lookout for sudden incidents or bursts of aggression! Or enforced manic overwork, or even lack of confidence if you don’t easily handle Mars energies.
6th Jan: Mars is conjunct Jupiter. These two become conjunct in Vishakha Nakshatra, whose symbol is the triumphal arch. Vishakha is ruled by Jupiter and its power animal is the male tiger, so this could be a good hinge time of success and power for those with planets in Vishakha.

However, Mars enters Vedic Scorpio on January 16th, and Scorpio is one of the two signs he rules.
So, this means that Mars will be strong, but watch out for his energy being caught up in tortured undercurrents or secret or obscured agendas. Seek clarity. Seek to define strategy. Don’t be precipitate.
Note that Mars will be in 6/8 aspect to Uranus in Aries while he is in Scorpio, so this is violent irritable energy in your consciousness and life, and at the geopolitical level could mean terrorist attacks and earthquakes.
How exactly the transit of Mars through Vedic Scorpio will affect you will depend on what House Scorpio is when counted both from your natal Lagna (Ascendant) and Moon Sign

Looking ahead, Mars enters Vedic Sagittarius on 7.3.18
Note that Mars and Saturn are conjunct in the Heavens from March 7th to May 2nd. This is not a good combination as these two pit themselves against each other and fight each other: energy of assertion fights against blocks and sensible structures! Anger and frustration!
And note that Mars energy becomes more and more problematic and vicious as 2018 unfolds with eclipses, conjunction to Ketu and Mars energies on hold during a Retrograde!

6. Venus:

Venus is transiting in Vedic Sagittarius conjunct the Sun, and so this is not good for love because the Sun combusts Venus, meaning that scorched egoic force burns gentle sweetness of loving Venus.

But Venus transits past the Sun from January 9th thus steadily improving her position freeing herself from the burning Combust.

From January 9th, Venus conjucnts the Sun in the heavens. She thus achieves Superior Conjunction and from now on until moves ahead of the Sun, beginning to be seen in the western sky as Evening Star. This journey of Venus was given especial reverence in ancient Sumeria, expressed as Inanna’s descent into the underworld: she was stripped naked and made to face her grief, then to re-arise.
So, around 9th January: do look for Renewal in Venusian matters of relationships and beauty.

Venus transits away from Vedic Sagittarius into Vedic Capricorn on January 14th.
Venus will pass by Ketu on January 30th around the time of the January 31st eclipse, Venus transiting here conjucnt Ketu south node exactly on January 29th which will mean difficult challenge for love scripts for those who have planets that are affected by this Conjunction.
However, Venus then heads further away from the Sun, to become more free during February.

7. Mercury:

Mercury starts the month in Vedic Scorpio, and is transiting through the Vedic Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta zone from 1st – 9th January.
He crosses into Vedic Sagittarius on 7th January, where his energies are slowed then blocked by his conjuncting Saturn.
Mercury and Saturn are exactly conjunct in the Heavens on 12th January.
Mercury transits Sagittarius in company with Venus and Sun as well as Saturn, so: depending on what House Sagittarius is in your Vedic birth chart, this could possibly be a good time for writing.
Mercury then enters Vedic Capricorn on January 27th.

8. Sun:

Sun enters Vedic Capricorn on January 14th. sun is the King of our Kingdom. We need a strong Sun. Saturn is blocks and pessimism and had lessons. During Sun’s transit through Vedic Capricorn and Aquarius, these two opposite energies combine for us to learn our sobering and important lessons.

9. Lunations:

Full Moon January 2nd: It’s in Ardra Nakshatra, ruled by fierce demonic Rahu in Vedic Gemini, so given the stormy nature of Ardra, this Full Moon could be experienced as wipe-out and stormy! Ardra is ruled by Rudra the Storm God, whose name means He who cries. He was the son of Shiva: independent and me first; scowling. Wait for calm then gather the pieces together!!!! Beware the possibility of vicious driven tunnel-visioned assertion that is in Ardra. So, for example if your ascendant or Moon is Vedic Cancer, this transit could be good for things to do with children and it will be good for creative work.

New Moon in Capricorn January 17th at 03.17 hrs. This is in UttaraAshadha Nakshatra. Sun, Moon and Venus are all closely conjunct. Ketu South Node is also in Capricorn, and Mercury enters Capricorn on January 27th.

The Full Moon Eclipse on 31st January 2018.

It looks ghastly!

This Eclipse occurs at 11 deg western Leo or 16 Vedic Cancer. It’s right on top of my natal Pluto!!!!!!!!!!!

Moon is in Ashlesha Nakshatra
Sun is in Sravana Nakshatra
Ascendant is in Ardra Nakshatra
Venus is conjunct Ketu! Planets transiting across the Nodes are forced to let go of something significant it terms of how we handle that planet in our life.

Note very importantly that there is another Eclipse in Ashlesha on 11th August 2018, also in Vedic Cancer (16 deg Western Leo).

Ashlesha is difficult Serpent energy: fears, phobias, obsessions and compulsions: hurt energies, but with potential for shamanic ‘death and rebirth’.

There’s a great need to clear the decks and plan to sustain a calm environment at the time of this Eclipse.
Ashlesha’s shakti is the healing potential that is in poison. Avoid anything toxic at this time. Perceive the toxin in you unconscious. Heal and empower on the basis of that perception.
N.B. To see the Vedic and Western charts for this Eclipse, go to the Blog version of this newsletter.

Because the eclipsed Moon is so close to Rahu transiting through Cancer, this will be a difficult time for maintain stability of mind. Be careful around the end of January and the beginning of February.

And note that Uranus is square Pluto in the heavens at the same time! URANUS/PLUTO: Revolution. The collapse of the old order. The process of transformation.
Psychologically, its restlessness. Activity. Creative energy. Flight from the establishment. Innovation, reform. A strong awareness of purpose and objective. Mobility. Creative power. Untiring effort. Endurance. daring and foolhardiness. Striving for new things. Extraordinary powers of creation and
performance.
Negatively, it’s impatience. Scatter of energies. Fanaticism. Violence. Precipitate action. The mania of destruction
Biologically, it’s changes in rhythm of biological processes. The relationship between pulse and
breathing. Fever spots.
Sociologically, the Uranus-Pluto energy enhances: pioneers, reformers. People who are very much out of the ordinary or who are endowed with universal genius.
URANUS-PLUTO PROBABLE MANIFESTATIONS:
+ the attainment of great objectives by immense application of effort. Bringing new things into
being. The creation of new conditions of living
– Acts of violence. Subversive activities. Putting a gun to someone’s head. The enforcement of
decisions. An accident.

Learn Astrology Prediction – Wonderful caring expert Course

Michael Conneely

Learn how to Predict using Astrology. Learn Astrology Prediction !

My worldwide Astrology Prediction Course is very special – for the following five reasons:

1. You learn a full range of Astrology Prediction Techniques
2. You get individual caring tuition
3. You can study Western Astrology prediction OR Vedic Astrology Prediction, OR you can combine both
4. It’s learned.
5. You learn by focussing authentically on two charts: yours and mine – and that way the discussion is genuine.

See: www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com/advanced-vedic-prediction

 

And Very Special Note: If you are wanting to Rectify your Time of Birth, you can do no better than do it through my Astrology Prediction Course.

WHY IS IT SO GOOD TO LEARN THE SKILL OF ASTROLOGY PREDICTION?

It is such helpful perception and understanding of your life ahead to have good understanding of the energies that will be entering your consciousness and your life in the year ahead.

Pt. 2 Video: Prediction Case Examples drawn from my Have an Astrology Prediction Year Ahead Video:

Let’s look at some practical examples:

1. Take the example of Rahu North Node transits the Moon in your birth chart in your year ahead: You Have Rahu in the heavens transiting towards your natal Moon. You see that Rahu will hit exact in June ahead. Well, that warns you to expect more obsessing or mental turbulence, etc. it wards you that you might have to handle weird dreams. It tells you that the turbulence will be worst in the applying phase but will then reduce after the exact hit. It warns you that if your Moon is unsupported in your birth chart, then the mental hurt and over-thinking will be worse. AND there’s also the more positive gift that (depending on other indications in your chart) this might be a good time to do shamanic journeying or healing, this might be a good time to engage in intuitive healing, etc,

2. Take the example of: you are in Jupiter Predictive Period or Dasha in Vedic Predictive Astrology, now: well that could be wonderfully expansive and give you needed purpose in everything you do. But you need to hear if your natal Jupiter is in the 6th House in your Vedic Birth Chart (Rashi Chart), in which case one of the things you need to be aware of is that you could attract enemies, so you need to think out really carefully of doing anything that may attract enemies, and then consider all the difficult issues of how you handle enemies in your life if you have attracted them! And is your Sun strong enough to handle a vast Jupiter expansion and direct and manage and contain such in your life now?

3. Let’s say Uranus is going to transit conjunct your Sun in the year ahead: well, be open to wonderful Revolution. Be open to inspiration – and this may come in ways you don’t expect, but take care not to be totally driven and hurt others.
And if you are around age 21/22 or 42, 64 or 84-year-old, then you will be experiencing your Uranus square or Opposition or return, and I can so help you be open to the best in that!

4. Individuation Age Pont and Nodal Age Point: And note that age 42 is the 8th House low point. And I use the wonderful Age Points: the Individuation Age Point of Psychodynamic Western Astrology, and the Nodal Age Point of Evolutionary western astrology, and when your 8th House low point is predictively activated, you will really benefit from a Reading to understand this huge time of life-change.

5. Saturn is transiting Vedic Sagittarius in the year ahead: this is Vedic Sagittarius using the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac. What will this mean? Well you have to look at what House Sagittarius is in your Vedic birth chart.
If that house is the 8th from the House occupied by the Moon in your birth chart, this will be Ashtama Shani: Saturn transits 8th House from Moon, and you really do need to know what this means and how to handle it!
And, another example:
if your Moon is in Vedic Sagittarius in your Vedic Birth Chart, well, you are in the middle of Sade Sate and you really do need to know what that means and how to handle it, and it is such a good idea to get a timetable of your Sade Sate energies from me to see: when are the really difficult times? when are the phases of ‘fool’s paradise times’? what does Sade Sate mean for you individually and particularly in your life? It’s a time of separations and despondence and being cut off from God’s grace with the divine purpose of thus being made to see yourself as you really are, and do something about that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Scorpio, then you are now entering the final two and a half years of Sade Sate. Learn how to handle that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Capricorn, then you are starting the seven and a half years Sade Sate, and you would do very well indeed to get a reading of guidance about that!!!
And note that if you are around age 28 or 59, you will be having your SATURN Return, and I can give you great guidance about that that means.

6. Jupiter is in Vedic Libra for your year ahead: well, you need to hear what sign this is in your Vedic birth chart. If its your first house, consciously cooperate with the energy of Jupiter by making strategy fro your expansive projection in the world.

7. Another example: Neptune is opposite your natal Venus: well make space to bring in the ideal love into your life, that your soul will be sensing and yearning for, bet beware Neptune has his dangerous side: the issue of money in your life could be dissolved.

8. Chiron: transits of Chiron bring up healing issues. Chiron takes fifty years to orbit the Sun, so if you are in late forties / early fifties, talk to me, get a reading from me to understand the healing of Chiron in your birth chart: the healing of your existential wound in the healing of which you can become the Healer of others. Your Chiron Return: the time when Chiron returns to his natal position and thus transits conjunct your natal Chiron is big. Chirosis!

3. What Predictive Techniques do we Learn?

Transits:
This is when a planet in the heavens aspects a planet in our birth chart now, or is transiting through a House in our birth chart now. We study the nature of the Transiting planet, and we study the nature of the natal planet or House that is affected by the Transit.

Progressions:
We study Secondary and Tertiary Progressions are in Western Astrology:

Secondary Progressions:
Day for a Year Progressions are a very reliable and robust indicator of what is going to happen in our life. These are also called Secondary Progressions. They are based on the principle that the chart for when we are one year old says crucial things about what will happen when we are in the year that starts when we are one year old. And of course, the chart of our second birthday predicts year two in our life, and so on. We note especially the position of the Progressed Moon, and what it aspects in our birth chart in terms of natal planets and House. And we note the effect of progressed Ascendant and chart angles, and progressed planets. This system works because of the fixed mathematical ratio between the Earth’s rotational period of a day and the Earth’s rotational period of a Year.

Tertiary Progressions:
These are similar to secondary progressions, but based on the principle of a day in the life corresponding predictively to a month in the life. These are powerful fine-tuning declarations, and are used in the astrology of death for example.

Predictive Periods: The Dasas of Vedic Astrology:
These are supreme and powerful predictors. They are unique to Vedic Astrology. From the moment we are born, a series of Predictive Periods starts to unfold, each period with a ruling planet, and there are sub periods within each predictive period, and each of the sub periods has a ruling planet, and there are sub-sub-periods within each sub-period. We learn how to assess what will happen when the ruling planet of each period/sub-period is activated, in terms of the standing of that ruling planet within our Vedic birth chart and also what the ruling planet is an indication of: The Karakas and Chara Karakas of Vedic Astrology.

Returns:
Your Solar Return chart is also a good indicator for your Year Ahead. This is the chart for the exact moment the sun returns to the position it occupied at the moment of your birth. It’s usually on the date of your birthday each year. The Solar Return Cart in Vedic Astrology is called the Varshaphal Chart, and is such a robust indicator of themes that will happen in your year ahead.

Predictive Age Points:

I teach two wonderful Predictive Age Points within psychodynamic Western Astrology, using Megastar software, and I supply the chart of these two age points in respect of each of us. There is an Individuation Age Point which circumnavigates the chart in 72 years, starting from the ascendant and moving counter-clockwise. It is an indicator of the energies we will pass through in our journey to potential individuation, in our egoic psychological unfoldment, learning about all the parts of our egoic psychological identity, and learning how to manage them and fulfill their highest potential. This Individuation Age Point moves counter-clockwise from the Ascendant passing through the houses and signs as it progresses. This Individuation Age Point does not only pass through the signs and houses in your natal chart, it also forms aspects to the planets in your natal chart as it progresses, thus activating experiences in your life relating to your scripts for the energies of that planet.
There is also a ‘Nodal Age Point’ which charts the call from your soul to you from the astral. The Nodal Age Point charts your soul’s call to you through dreams, subliminality, synchronicity, intuitions, impulses and visions. The nodal Age Point starts from the position of the North Node of the Moon at the moment you were born. It circumnavigates the rim of your chart clockwise, thus passing at predictable dates through your signs, houses and in aspect to your planets. Fascinatingly the Nodal Age Point so often declares a similar strand to your Vedic Predictive astrology.
The Individual Age Point is shown by the black cross in a circle on the rim of your natal chart
The Nodal Age Point is shown by the red cross in a circle on the rim of your birth chart.
The Age Point declaration is sophisticated in that it includes advance techniques such as ‘House Intensity Curve’ etc.

4. Western and Vedic Astrology:

My Prediction Course is unique and very special in that it offers the option to combine predictive techniques of both Western astrology and Vedic Astrology.

You don’t have to study both western Prediction and Vedic prediction, by the way, though many people love to. Others prefer to study just one option.

Modern Western Astrology is largely a psychodynamic and evolutionary framework, geared to our study of our ‘egoic self’, our psychological self, and how we experience things psychologically. And we use the Tropical Zodiac to study Western Astrology, which is based on the position of the Sun on the first day of Spring: The Vernal Equinox.

Vedic Astrology is largely Destiny and Life Purpose orientated, and our psychological self is but a part of our destiny, and not fully ‘real’ at that. Vedic Astrology must use the Sidereal Zodiac and Lahiri Ayanamsha for accuracy. The Sidereal Zodiac is anchored to the ‘Fixed Stars’: Spica in Chitra at 0 degrees Sidereal Libra. Due to precession of the Equinoxes, the Western Tropical Zodiac drifts in relation to the Sidereal Zodiac by a degree every 72 years. Currently the Western Tropical Zodiac is approx. 24 degrees apart from the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac.

The Nakshatras: And note that Vedic Predictive Astrology also gains vast declarative extra dimension from use of the Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology: the 27 Lunar Signs: The Nakshatras, which supremely declare our emotional self, our consciousness arising therefore, and our path to growth to better managing and aligning our emotional self to our higher and more spiritual connection and our openness to God.

5. Which Planets Do We Study on This Course?

The thirteen Planets of both Vedic and Western astrology that are encompassed by this course, are as follows:

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Chiron the Wounded Healer, Ketu South Node and Rahu North Node.

6. The Focus of this Prediction Course:

As with all my Astrology Courses, each topic is studied in relation to two charts: yours and mine. The aim here is to keep the discussion real, grounded, authentic and caring, and to avoid ungrounded formula.

Natal and Predcition Charts: You therefore receive from me at the start of this course two sets of natal charts: yours and mine.
These charts will be in both Western and Natal Astrology and are drawn from four astrology software programs. In Western Astrology these programs are Astrocalc and Megastar. In Vedic Astrology, these are Shri Jyoti Star and Kala.

Other Charts: I am really glad to send you charts for family members in Western and Vedic natal and Predictive Astrology. I can’t undertake to discuss these with you within the framework of the Course, but I do find that giving students the opportunity to also take family members’ predictive astrology on board is a great and wonderful extension to their predictive astrology learning. If you want these, please let me know.

7. Predictive Reports – 2 yr. Period:

For your background consideration, you also receive from me two good quality computer-generated predictive reports for your year past year and also your year ahead in Western Astrology: yours and mine. These are generated using Soar Fire software

8. In what order do we study the planets for their predictive effects?

I find it is good to tailor the order of study to the individual student. And so, what happens is that I make a decision to prioritise prominent or important Predictive Phenomena that are happing in your or my life now.

So, for example, if you are in Sade Sate now, we would study Saturn predictive astrology first. If you were having your Chiron Return now, we would study the predictive astrology of Chiron the wounded Healer first. If you were experiencing a Uranus to Moon transit now, we would start with Uranus, as the first predictive planet to study. I always aim to make my teaching as individual, authentic and caring as I can.

9. Rectification of your Time of Birth:

The best way to rectify your time of birth is to try out the implications of different selected times of birth, to assess which time of birth most accurately predicts the timing event in your life, at the actual date that that event actually occurred.
We encompass this rectification of time of birth testing, where appropriate, as we work through the assignments of this Prediction Course, using different predictive phenomena such as Transits, Progressions and Dashas (Predictive Periods). We try out different times of birth in relation to a predictive phenomenon/method, to see which time of birth gives the most accurate prediction in terms of what actually happened at an earlier time in our life.
We can later fine-tune a Rectified time of birth through study of how different times of birth affect the declaration of our Varga Charts: the divisional charts of Vedic Astrology.

10. Your First Assignment:

We now select for first predictive phenomenon study: Transits.

And we also now select the transit of the first particular chosen planet.

And as stated above, we are now selecting one transit by this planet that has already happened in relation to your natal chart.
An we are also select a second transit by that planet which is yet to happen.

So, you now send me a prediction for both the past and the present transit of the selected planet, shown below, in your life.

And when you have heard back from me on this piece of work, you will then study a past and future transit by the same planet, but in relation to my birth chart.

To support you in this work, I send you our natal charts, also our charts for the moments of the two transits being studied for each of us,
PLUS two documents each with accompanying videos:
Presentation for the first planet of study: Video and Doc. Including Meditation journey to meet that planet in his Pure/Divine self, and also as experienced by us in our chart/our life through the filters of sign, house and aspect.
Karmic Presentation for the first planet of study: Video and Doc: My Lords of Karma Series, complete with presentations of many healing techniques.

And may I wish great Blessing upon all my students for our wonderful inspirational, healing and empowering work,

And I look forward to hearing from you,
Michael

And as an important bonus, my astrology readings and courses are always open to and combined with Healing and Empowerment possibilities, if you wish.

WHY IS IT SO GOOD TO HAVE A PREDICTION?

It is such helpful perception and understanding of your life ahead to have good understanding of the energies that will be entering your consciousness and your life in the year ahead.

Let’s look at some practical examples:

4. Individuation Age Point and Nodal Age Point: And note that age 42 is the 8th House low point. And I use the wonderful Age Points: the Individuation Age Point of Psychodynamic Western Astrology, and the Nodal Age Point of Evolutionary western astrology, and when your 8th House low point is predictively activated, you will really benefit from a Reading to understand this huge time of life-change.

4. Saturn is transiting Vedic Sagittarius in the year ahead: this is Vedic Sagittarius using the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac. What will this mean? Well you have to look at what House Sagittarius is in your Vedic birth chart.
If that house is the 8th from the House occupied by the Moon in your birth chart, this will be Ashtama Shani: Saturn transits 8th House from Moon, and you really do need to know what this means and how to handle it!
And, another example:
if your Moon is in Vedic Sagittarius in your Vedic Birth Chart, well, you are in the middle of Sade Sate and you really do need to know what that means and how to handle it, and it is such a good idea to get a timetable of your Sade Sate energies from me to see: when are the really difficult times? when are the phases of ‘fool’s paradise times’? what does Sade Sate mean for you individually and particularly in your life? It’s a time of separations and despondence and being cut off from God’s grace with the divine purpose of thus being made to see yourself as you really are, and do something about that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Scorpio, then you are now entering the final two and a half years of Sade Sate. Learn how to handle that.
If your Moon in your birth chart is in Vedic Capricorn, then you are starting the seven and a half years Sade Sate, and you would do very well indeed to get a reading of guidance about that!!!
And note that if you are around age 28 or 59, you will be having your SATURN Return, and I can give you great guidance about that that means.

5. Jupiter is in Vedic Libra for your year ahead: well, you need to hear what sign this is in your Vedic birth chart. If its your first house, consciously cooperate with the energy of Jupiter by making strategy fro your expansive projection in the world.

6. Another example: Neptune is opposite your natal Venus: well make space to bring in the ideal love into your life, that your soul will be sensing and yearning for, bet beware Neptune has his dangerous side: the issue of money in your life could be dissolved.

7. Chiron: transits of Chiron bring up healing issues. Chiron takes fifty years to orbit the Sun, so if you are in late forties / early fifties, talk to me, get a reading from me to understand the healing of Chiron in your birth chart: the healing of your existential wound in the healing of which you can become the Healer of others. Your Chiron Return: the time when Chiron returns to his natal position and thus transits conjunct your natal Chiron is big. Chirosis!

So, what sort of Astrology features are my Predictions based on?

A. Your Western Astrology Transits

We study: The Chart for ‘Now’ compared to your natal chart, and from that: Your Transits List for the year ahead.

A Transit is where a planet in the heavens today forms an aspect to a planet in your natal chart, or when a planet passes through a House in your natal chart, or a sign, bringing a new energy is brought into your life.

We look at your graphed transits to get an exact idea of the timing of the bursts of the very different energies.

B. Your Western Astrology Progressions

We create the Progressed Chart and compare this to your Natal Chart.
What’s a Progressed Chart? Well, a day in a life tells us something about a year in a life.
So, for example, where the planets are when you are aged nine, tells us something about what will happen in your 9th year.
This is because of the mathematical relationship between the Earth’s rotational period (= a day) and its orbital period (= a year).
This is a very robust and reliable predictive indicator.
The Progressed Moon takes about two-and-a-half years to go through a sign or house.
The Progressed Moon is very good for predicting how our basic emotional drives will show up in the year ahead.

C. Your Western Psychodynamic Astrology: Predictive Age Points

In my Astrology Readings and Courses, I teach two wonderful Predictive Age Points within psychodynamic Western Astrology, using Megastar software.
First, there is an Individuation Age Point which circumnavigates the chart in 72 years, starting from the ascendant and moving counter-clockwise.
This is an indicator of the energies we will pass through in our journey to potential individuation, in our egoic psychological unfoldment, learning about all the parts of our egoic psychological identity, and learning how to manage them and fulfill their highest potential.
The Individuation Age Point moves counter-clockwise from the Ascendant passing through the houses and signs as it progresses. It also forms aspects to the planets in your natal chart as it progresses, thus activating experiences in your life relating to your personal scripts for the energies of that planet.

And there is also a ‘Nodal Age Point’ which charts the call from your soul to you from the astral.
The Nodal Age Point charts your soul’s call through dreams, subliminality, synchronicities, intuitions, impulses and visions.
The nodal Age Point starts from the position of the North Node of the Moon at the moment you were born. It circumnavigates the rim of your chart clockwise taking 72 years to complete one circuit, thus passing at predictable dates, through your signs, houses and in aspect to your planets. Fascinatingly the Nodal Age Point so often declares a similar strand to what your Vedic Predictive astrology declares for the same time period

D. Get your Astrology prediction Reports:
If you order the ‘with reports option’, you are also sent a very good quality Western and Vedic Astrology Prediciton report. In fact you can combine Natal Chart Interpretation AND Preeiciton into the one worldwide Recorded Reading with me, and get reports for both.
And note that my Astrology is always combine with healing and empowerment possibilities. And we can also examine the karmic healing that is indicated.

2. ALSO GET YOUR VEDIC PREDICTIVE ASTROLOGY

A. What is Vedic Astrology?

Vedic Astrology is the Astrology heritage of India. It is vast. It takes more than one life time to study Vedic Astrology.

What’s the difference from Western Astrology? Well, Vedic Astrology is geared to a statement of your destiny and your incarnational life purpose, whereas Western astrology is geared to your psychological self, our psychological unfoldment.

The Sidereal Zodiac: Vedic Astrology uses a different 12-sign zodiac from western astrology so your planets will often be described as being in different signs. This is because the sidereal zodiac of Vedic astrology is fixed: it is anchored to a fixed star as a statement of the Eternal, whereas the tropical zodiac of western astrology is moving: it moves a degree every 72 years and its start point is that point in the heavens that the Sun occupies on the first day of Spring, and because it is solar it is ‘ego astrology’ The scope of Vedic Astrology is immensely vaster than egoic western astrology. At the present the two zodiacs are 24 degrees apart.

The Lunar Zodiac: Additionally, please do note that Vedic astrology also employs an even more ancient zodiac: the immeasurably powerful and totally beautiful lunar zodiac of 27 signs. These depict our realities in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful.
These lunar signs are called ‘Nakshatras’. The positions of the lunar signs were more easily visible to ancient astrologers because they are quite simply the position of the Moon in the heavens on each of the 27 days the Moon takes to orbit the Earth.
Because the lunar signs are so ancient, they are powerful and magical and pre-rational.
Each of them has a power animal that can be used for many purposes of understanding – including the identification of the best marriage partner for you.

Love Astrology: The Lunar Sign or Nakshatra that your Moon falls in in your Vedic natal chart is the basis for the ancient and powerfully accurate Vedic Astrology of love and relationships. You can order from me a special report on your Love and Relationships Astrology. Each Nakshatra has a power animal. The power animal of the same species but the opposite gender to your own is your ideal sexual partner, however, taking the wider issues of relationship, overall compatibility is often best with another Lunar Sign.

The Vedic Astrology of Love and Relationships gives an exceptionally clear and decisive analysis of a relationship. This is given in a way that is not available from western astrology. It travels the infinite thread between intimacy and vastness. Vedic Love Astrology states simply and powerfully the key issues about relationship, for example it measures the all-important quality of respect, what level of sexual attraction, whether there is friendliness, whether there is the necessary shared sense of purpose, and so forth. It is an invaluable backbone to relationships understanding. You can’t actually understand relationships without it.

B. What do we Cover in my worldwide Vedic Astrology Prediction Readings?

1. I present and analyze your Vedic Birth Chart:

We look at strength of planets, what they indicate (Karakas). We analyse the ways in which the planets in your chart treat each other. Does your Sun burn your Venus? For example.

And we also examine your Divisional or Varga Charts, each of which makes a very special declaration about a particular area of your life.

2. Your Vedic Predictive Periods: The Dasas:

Vedic Astrology uses uniquely wonderful predictive life periods called Dasas. The Dasas unfold in set pattern from the moment of our birth. They have sub-periods and sub-sub-periods within the Dasas, often called Bhuktis or Antars.

The Dasas are a powerful form of prediction, but their timing is very sensitive to accurate time of birth. Each Dasa is ruled by a planet.

3. The Vedic Transits through the Signs and Houses of your Vedic Birth chart

We see how your birth chart is activated by the position of the planets transiting in the heavens now and in your year ahead. What energies will they be bringing into your life?

4. Your Varshaphal Chart for the Year Ahead (solar return chart)

The Varshaphal Chart is the chart for the exact moment each year the Sun returns to the exact point it occupied at the moment of your birth. (it is on the date of your birth normally, your birthday). It is thus a solar return chart. It makes a powerful statement for what will happen in your year ahead. This will be decoded in the recorded interview.

The Dark Goddess and How to Work with Her

Michael Conneely

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

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

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

And Mula Nakshatra is ruled over by Niritti.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So, who and what is the Dark Goddess?

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

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

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

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

Do this as Saturn meets Niritti now!

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

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

Powerful Astrology Prediction Readings in Western and Vedic Astrology

Michael Conneely

This is a Post about Michael Conneely’s powerful Astrology Prediction Readings.

When you enroll for an astrology Prediction (&/or Natal) reading, I send you your charts beforehand so that you can refer to them during the reading, and you can also opt for wonderful detailed reports as well.

A special bonus is that my Astrology is never formulaic, but it generates good and caring grounded perception and is also totally geared to your healing and empowerment.

I work closely with my partner Maggie Pashley who offers many worldwide Healings: www.maggiepashley.com

You can find even more detail at this link: www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreading

My Astrology Prediction Readings are of exceptional expert quality partly because I draw on both western psychodynamic astrology and Vedic astrology. So, what’s the difference?

Modern western psychodynamic astrology, when expertly interpreted, accurately depicts our psychological make-up, the sub-personalities within us and issues of individuation and wholeness. It encompasses our sub-personalities and psychosynthesis and also understanding of nature versus nurture’ agendas in our lives. Modern Western Astrology also includes a dimension of Evolutionary Astrology: a statement of how past life scripts influence this life, and this is evaluated in terms of the psychological results of past live scripts.

Vedic astrology which is far more ancient 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’.

/**/

Zodiacs:
Western astrology uses the tropical zodiac (start point 0 deg tropical Aries: where the Sun is on the first day of Spring); Vedic Astrology uses the sidereal zodiac (start point 0 deg sidereal Aries which is anchored to a fixed star). As the western tropical zodiac moves a degree every 72 years against the backdrop of the stars, the two zodiacs are currently 24 degrees apart).

CHARTS:

Transits: 

So, first, your Western astrology birth chart is shown in the charts I send you in advance is generated using the Astrocalc computer program. This is a wonderful astrology software, and shows you your natal planets, including the Outer Planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, and also Chiron the Wounded Healer: depictor of your personal, individual Existential Wound.

Next, because this is a predictive Astrology Report, I go on to show you where the planets are in the heavens now and in your Year Ahead. So first I show you: The Chart for Now

Then, next: I show you a bi-wheel chart: the Chart for Now (outer) compared to your natal chart (inner):

So this way you clearly see what your Transits are now – and in the year ahead. And then I show you your Transits List

A Transit is where a planet in the heavens today forms an aspect to a planet in your natal chart, or passes through a House in your natal chart, or a sign. Thus, a new energy is brought into your life. Look at your graphed transits to get an idea of the timing of the bursts of the very different energies.

Progressed Chart compared to Natal Chart

Next, we look at your Progressions: A day in a life tells us something about a year in a life. This is because of the fixed mathematical ratio between the Earth’s rotational period of a day and the earth’s orbital period of a year. So, where the planets are when you are aged nine, tells us something about what will happen in your 9th year, for example. This is because of the mathematical relationship between the Earth’s rotational period (= a day) and its orbital period (= a year). This is a robust and reliable predictive indicator. The Progressed Moon takes about two-and-a-half years to go through a sign or house. The Progressed Moon is very good for predicting how our basic emotional drives will show up in the year ahead.

Your Western Predictive Astrology Chart by the Swiss Huber School

Next, we look at what the Huber Predictive systems predict for you.

The fist Huber Age Point is a psychological depiction. It circumnavigates the chart in 72 years, starting from the ascendant and moving counter-clockwise. It is an indicator of the energies we will pass through in our journey to potential individuation, in our egoic psychological unfoldment. The AP moves counter-clockwise from the Ascendant passing through the houses and signs as it progresses. The AP does not only pass through the signs and houses in your natal chart, it also forms aspects to the planets in your natal chart as it progresses.

Secondly, there is also a wonderful ‘Nodal Age Point’ which charts the call from your soul on the astral: its call to you through dreams, subliminality, synchronicity, intuitions, impulses and visions.

Next: Some pointers to your Vedic Prediction

Here’s a very brief summary of what we interpret in relation to your Vedic predictive Astrology:

1. Dashas – Your Vedic Predictive Periods

Vedic Astrology uses predictive life periods called Dasas. The Dasas unfold in set pattern from the moment of our birth. They have sub-periods within the Dasas often called Bhuktis or Antars. Vedic Predictive Periods particularly activate the energy of the planet that rules them. Thus, we especially get to experience how that planet manifest in our Vedic Birth Chart., we learn about that. We heal it. We empower ourself. They are a powerful form of prediction.

2. The Vedic Transits through the Signs and Houses of your Vedic Birth chart

I show your birth chart and below it the position of the planets in the heavens now. From this you can see that in the predictive year ahead:

3. Your Varshaphal Chart for the Year Ahead (solar return chart)

The Varshaphal Chart is the chart for the exact moment each year the Sun returns to the exact point it occupied at the moment of your birth. (it is on the date of your birth normally, your birthday). It is thus a solar return chart. This will be decoded in the recorded interview. The single special indicator for the year ahead is called the Muntha (shown as MU). It is decoded by its position in both the Varshaphal chart and your rashi (natal) chart.

So, to conclude, I stress that my Astrology Readings are always expert and through.

They always combine Western Astrology and Vedic Astrology.

You get your charts beforehand, and reports too if you opt for those.

The reading is recorded, and you have every opportunity for discussions/questions afterwards.

I look forward to hearing from you and to working with you

Michael
