How to Read the Vedic Birth Chart Pt. 4: Louise’s Chart

Michael Conneely

This reading predicts a period of artistic success and standing in the world for Louise. Her chart is difficult because Sun is most deeply Debilitated and Mars is her Bhadak planet.
Michael Conneely’s Master Vedic Astrology course focuses on in-depth study of two charts: Michael’s and the students, and always offers crossover into western astrology to the extent that the student desires, and so we examine ‘Nature v Nurture issues, Chart aspect shapes and above all the implications of Louise’s Sun conjunct Pluto.
Master Vedic Astrology always offers gateways: gateways to use the superb perception created by Vedic and western astrology as an opportunity for healing and empowerment: becoming the essence of who you were born to be, and so Maggie Pashley demonstrates here the use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to start to create illumination as to the nature of the debilitation of the Sun and the Mars Bhadaka – and also the way out!

Child Astrology Readings with Michael Conneely

To understand your child’s life, you could not do better than book a Child Astrology Reading from me:
This is because, exceptionally, I combine expert Western astrology with Vedic Astrology. And more than that, my readings are always linked to healing and empowerment techniques such as the many healing modalities you can see on the relevant website page, art therapy and also embodiment techniques.
My child astrology reading will so strongly support your understanding of your child. It will so strongly promote your best parenting of your child. This applies to children of all ages.

Within western child astrology, my specialisms are psychodynamic astrology and evolutionary astrology
Sub Personalities:

Psychodynamic astrology provides the most accurate definition of the different parts of your child’s psychology. It accurately identifies ‘sub-personalities’ your child has. One of the key methods I use to identify your child’s psychology is analysis of the chart aspect shapes in your child’s chart. Chart aspect shapes are a powerful guide to your child’s deepest psychological motivations. They identify what parts of your child’s personality work easily together, and which parts are so different that it is hard to reconcile one with the other.
In particular, chart aspect shapes analysis is excellent for identifying which parts of us are split off: what parts actually go so far as to act as ‘unaspected sub-personalities. The need is for all of us to know even the split-off parts of ourselves, so that we will not be driven by unconscious denied parts, so that we will

August 2015 Astrology Forecast from Michael Conneely: combined western and Vedic Astrology

Michael Conneely
This August Astrology combines both western and Vedic Astrology. I start with Vedic Astrology.
You can see my western astrology forecast following on from this, below.
N.B. You can see the charts for the planet positions and the ephemeris and details of Moon phases in both western and Vedic Astrology on my Master Vedic Astrology courses website: There’s charts and ephemeris for every month.
So first of all, here is news about how Vedic Astrology says the planets will affect your life:
For me the biggest development to be aware of is that Saturn has ended his long Retrograde motion in the heavens which started March 15th 2015. He is virtually stationary all August and then he will very slowly start to gather forward speed.
How will this manifest in your life now? Well, as a general guide, Saturn going direct releases pent up energy. It clears and activates situations that have been blocked up and have been ‘on hold’. Delays and holdups are challenged. Major crises can erupt. Remember, Saturn is a powerful malefic. He can bring harsh results, and needs to be met with patience, structure and discipline. Lay down new structures. Prune where necessary.
As a useful guide to how to you might work out the lessons of Lord Shani in your life this month, I’m sharing here how this has manifested in my life now:
Well, a sick, tyrannical adoptive sibling died in his alcohol institution (albeit spraying out final harm to others) and my partner experienced a similar death dimension in a

This is the second webinar in a wonderful and empowering series.
Michael Conneely shows how to analyse the Vedic Astrology Birth Chart.
Michael is analysing the charts of members of a study group within the Master Vedic Astrology Course. This is part 2 in the series: Lisa’s chart
Two important principles of the Master Vedic Astrology Course demonstrated here are as follows:
* The value of including crossover into Western psychodynamic astrology
Applied astrology involves using the wonderful perception of Vedic and also western psychodynamic astrology, as a gateway to stabilising the mind, to healing and empowerment: applying a Healing Modality.
In this case EFT is used (Emotional Freedom Technique) with Maggie Pashley.
N.B. There is a brief technical glitch around the fifty minute point, but please ignore this and persist with watching to see the wonderful healing at the end. The YouTube video link is:

Thank you so much Maggie and Michael.
The reading from Michael is so spot on it really is incredible and thank you Maggie as your EFT session was very helpful and a great new technique I will play with as the issues are very much about balancing with Husband, the work I love and Guru.
I look forward to the next session. Much Love and Light to you both.

Love Astrology : The Balance of Assertiveness in a Relationship

Contact Michael Conneely at for a skilled and invaluable relationships compatibility reading.
My readings always combine both western with Vedic Astrology. They are always geared to the highest insights and also to healing and empowerment. They can be linked to healing modalities.
Vedic Astrology has a quite sure and ancient system of compatibility assessment called the Ashta Kuta system. This is never to be used in a simplistic legalistic way, of course, and I provide a full and very highly qualified analysis and assistance.
And a most important principle in my compatibility readings is one of the many features of the Ashta Kutas system, namely Assertive Pressure.
Vedic Astrology DOES actually provide an invaluable measure of the couple’s relative assertiveness – and ideally it should be balanced.
This very special feature of Vedic Love Astrology is called Kuja Dosha or Manglik.
Years ago I did a blog post on Sylvia Plath’s relationship with Ted Hughes, and it emerged that he was five times more assertive than her – and sadly she put her head in a gas oven!
The greatest disruption to marital harmony is quarrelling. So often this comes from the Mars balance or imbalance between the two people in the relationship.
As long as the pressure is equalized the relationship can be maintained and can be constructive.
If, however, Mars assertiveness is less in one person’s horoscope than the others, then the person with less Mars assertiveness gets abused and eventually has their self-esteem or self-worth trashed and the relationship will not be constructive. Their timidity,

Rahu – Moon dasa is tough!

Ketu, the South Node of the Moon
My Rahu – Moon – Ketu Dasa (Vedic Predictive Period) was such catastrophic and difficult enlightenment for me, essentially feeling my adoptive mother betrayed me, and realising my shreds of (adoptive) family are malign or harmful, and facing the question what do you do about this?
I am now in the next Dasa: Rahu-Moon-Venus. Could I be forgiven for saying that I will not be sad when Rahu – Moon ends on 31st October????
My partner, Maggie’s Rahu – Moon Dasa ends 3.1.2016.
Her Rahu – Moon – Ketu Dasa is 6/8 to 7/9
She can do it!!!!
The planetary energies arriving to us are ever-changing. Sun, Moon, Mars and Mercury moved into Punarvasu nakshatra yesterday.
I imagine the dust will settle and we’ll start to move from shock, intensity overwhelm, into deeper understanding and release over the coming days.
With the Perception of Vedic Astrology and also mantra and healing techniques, the resources are there. We have some tools for navigating our challenges.
Yes to movement and growth!
So much of navigating our power (or our karmas for that matter) comes down to awareness and choice. That’s the brilliance of having Vedic Astrology, but also being willing to face dark and light as though they are both valuable and necessary.
Our willingness to face fear will prove to be a strengthening of our inner power.
Healing techniques and vision work all help us be courageous and walk the edge- trusting we will come through it with great wisdom.
Underneath anger is great passion and passion

Learn to read the Vedic Birth Chart – Course and Webinar Series

Michael Conneely
Have a look at the first webinar:

The Vedic Birth Chart is a supreme guide to discovering your Dharma: your incarnational life purpose.
In my Master Vedic Astrology course, the foundations and also the utter vastness of the techniques of Vedic Astrology are learned.
My courses are caring and thorough, and my teaching method is drawn on the Oxford University Tutorial technique for bringing out your excellence – the approach I myself benefited from in the 1960s.
But you don’t just have the written part of the course as your method of study. Regular webinars are also being made available to teach you both the basics and the most advanced techniques of both Vedic and Western Astrology.
And a very special feature of my readings and my Vedic astrology courses is that you can make cross-over into Western Astrology to the extent that you wish (and vice versa).
I believe that Vedic Astrology benefits from the enhancement offered by psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology, as well as the insights following the discovery of the Outer Planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto whose energies have now entered the western consciousness following their discovery, and of course: Chiron, the Wounded Healer in your chart.
Furthermore, a very special feature of my readings and courses is that we also introduce Applied Astrology where desired. In other words we apply the perceptions offered by the supreme declaration of Vedic Astrology a gateway to your individual healing, empowerment and transformation.
A Master Vedic Astrology course group has embarked on a series of webinars
