Rahu – Moon dasa is tough!

Written by Michael Conneely

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.

Saturn is Retrograding: very slow, nearly stationary. He reaches a standstill in August 2015!

Written by Michael Conneely

A big feature is that the planet Saturn is retrograde (moving backwards) in the heavens now (June 2015). He is also practically stationary in the heavens. He slows even further and he actually is stationary all month in August 2015 – at 28 deg Scorpio.
Saturn on station will really slow everything down. We will be forced to confront and deal with issues. Saturn is inescapable and he calls for discipline and patience.
This will affect everyone, but especially Scorpios and Taureans.
Saturn calls us to respect limits and duties and act patiently. His energy can be grim or remorseless. Many people will feel very tense. Deaths are more likely.
Saturn is Lord of Karma. It is Saturn’s job to build and manifest

Chiron Opposition Uranus

Chiron the Wounded Healer

Well, the truth is: strange but true: that a big percentage of the people coming to me have the aspect ‘Chiron opposition Uranus’ in their western birth chart. And I have the same energy. Chart below.
And I feel people get me as their astrologer because I can tell them something crucial relating to this. Tell them they have the script, examine how it manifests, develp perception, give keys to empowerment and healing.
The energy is in our lives because our soul chose a life where we would not be adequately recognized by one of our parents, usually the mother, or it can be both parents.
What I am talking about here is having the aspect in reasonably tight orbs, read more advanced astrology

He may lead us to set new standards in health and functioning in life. He calls on us to identify to causes of our wounds and illness. Some will discover amazing abilities to heal themselves around some key wound or health issue. We are all wounded/broken to some degree; now is the time to let in the light.

Neptune is Retrograde

Michael Conneely Writes:

Neptune is Retrograde from 12th June 2015 to 18th November 2015: He’s at 9 deg Pisces today, June 27th 2015.
It depends on our level of awareness how we will experience Neptune Retrograde.
Any Retrograde planet makes us look deeper and stronger at how the energy of that planet is manifesting in our life.
Negatively, Retrograde Neptune can mean an intensification of our delusion or denial, a ‘lovely’ meeting with a liar or a deception merchant. A flight into unreality, avoidance through self-deception.
Positively, Retrograde Neptune can mean increase in vision and intuition, increase in compassion, embracing the divine love and meaning of things that happen to us. Obviously what we experience during Neptune Retrograde will depend on which House in our birth chart.

Learn the Ogham: The Celtic Tree Alphabet

Learn the Ogham Alphabet
My name is Michael Conneely and I will be very glad to start work with you learning the Ogham Fews. The Ogham is the Celtic Tree Alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids. It is powerful and mystical.
Basically, as with my Runes course, there is a presentation and then a journey for each Ogham Few (or ‘letter’).
The important point is that each journey to encounter the deep meaning of a Few, is made from a start point. And it is made along the pathways that run across and between the Celtic Otherworlds. The Otherworlds exist and are powerful, and they inter-penetrate this world ‘Middle Earth’.

Saturn transits your 12th House: Understand its special difficulty, its special gifts and its timing!

Michael Conneely

Saturn Transits your 12th House in your birth chart:
What does this mean?
What’s the timing?

 

 

A student of mine from Sydney Australia writes:
‘I have a question please regarding Saturn in the 12th house, as was discussed in the webinar chart reading today ( see: http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/webinars.html, webinar No 8).

I also have Saturn transiting in my 12th house, however that must be in Western astrology as you mentioned that Saturn is currently transiting through the sign of Scorpio which is my ascending sign and obviously my first house in Vedic astrology. So just a little confused as to which one is playing its energy out on me at the moment, or is it both?

I’m even more curious as today the decision was made to dissolve my business partnership of 9 years. So I’m wondering is this 12thhouse endings or 1st house beginnings? Can these energies be this exact, as life, I have learnt generally cannot be cut cleanly into neatly sized pieces.’

Here is my reply:

First of all to respond simply to Lisa’s question, this is indeed a case of ‘Saturn endings’ and ‘Saturn beginnings’ as Lisa is exactly at the point when Saturn crosses her ascendant.

AND also Lisa is benefiting because at this time Jupiter is currently transiting in Vedic Leo which is her 10th House of Career.

However, to turn to her details question of how do you time the transit of Saturn through your 12th House?

Well, the transit of Saturn through your 12th House in your birth chart is a difficult and sad period of things dying in your life, loss of confidence, retreat to an institution or foreign parts and inward looking introspection. Of course the things that die needed to die for you to progress! Of course the losses occurred in order for you to make needed shedding so you could go forward in your life to meet your Dharmic destiny. Once the Saturn transit through the 12th house is ended you begin to build confidence again as to how you project yourself into the world, but hopefully on a sounder basis, and more deeply attuned to your life purpose and to the spiritual realms.

And note that I want to mention two other difficult house-transits of Saturn, Sade Sate and Saturn transiting 8th house from natal Moon, and these can of course overlap and occur simultaneously depending on your individual chart, and these are defined below at the very end of this Blog post.

So, how do we calculate the timing of the difficult transit of Saturn through our 12th House?

Well, I firmly believe it runs from the moment when Saturn enters your Vedic 12th House in your Vedic birth chart and it lasts until Saturn actually crosses your Ascendant (or Lagna) which is in your Vedic 1st House and which is the cusp of your western 1st House. I firmly believe it does not end until Saturn has crossed the Ascendant.

So, to generalise, there is a difference in the way western and Vedic Astrology define the date of the end of a transit through the 12th House.

Your Vedic Astrology:

In your Vedic astrology, using the sidereal zodiac, you have Lagna/Ascendant at Vedic 10 Scorpio 59.

So, in Vedic astrology, using the Sidereal Zodiac, Scorpio is your 1st House and Libra is your 12th House.
Transiting Saturn today is at Vedic 9 Scorpio 57, so Saturn is just about to cross your Lagna.

So, Vedic Astrology would put the date that Saturn entered your 12th House Libra as the start of your Saturn through the 12th house transit, namely 11.10.2011.
And Vedic astrology would say that your Saturn through the 12th House transits ended when Saturn left your 12th House Libra on 3.11.2014, on which date they would say that Saturn entered your 1st House.

This is because Vedic Astrology puts the end of the transit as the date when the transiting planet reaches the end of the 12th House.

In other words, Vedic Astrology dates your Saturn through the 12th House transit to: 11th October 2011 to 3rd November 2014.

Your Western Astrology: 

However, Western Astrology, using the Tropical Zodiac, puts the start of the 12th House transit as the date Saturn enters your 12th house using one of the House systems of Western Astrology.

And Western Astrology puts end of the 12th House transit as the date when the transiting planet actually crosses the Ascendant (for the third time in the case of a multiple hit transit, or of course it can just be the once).

So, western astrology would say that your Saturn transit through your 12th House started when Saturn entered your 12th House, which, using the Koch House system was when Saturn crossed the tropical zodiac degree 9 Scorpio 22.9.2013

And western astrology would say that your Saturn transit through your 12th House ends when Saturn hits your Ascendant which is in a few days’ time around: 26.12.2013, 4th April 2013 and 9.11.15, your Ascendant degree in western astrology tropical zodiac being 4 Sagittarius.

In other words, western astrology puts your Saturn through the 12th House (using Koch Houses) as 26th December 2013 to 9th November 2015.

Here are the two other very difficult House-transits of Saturn (and of course these can overlap, depending on your individual Vedic birth chart)

saturn cronos 4Sade Sate:

The first of these is the powerful sure and accurate Vedic predictive phenomenon of Sade Sate, the difficult period of mental/emotional turbulence, death, loss, moves and death, seeing your self more in the light of limitations which need to be identified and shed and also rebirth as Saturn transits through the sign before that occupied by the Moon in your birth chart, through the sign occupied by the Moon in your Vedic Birth Chart and through the sign after the sign occupied by the Moon. In terms of the Nakshatras, the utterly wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology Sade Sate starts when Saturn enters your ‘Manasa nakshatra’, the 25th Nakshatra from the nakshatra occupied by your natal Moon, where Manasa Nakshatra depicts your ‘default state of consciousness.

Saturn Transits 8th House from natal Moon:
The second of these is the difficult transit of Saturn through the 8th House from your natal Moon in your Vedic birth chart when you get disturbances of mind, bad dreams and unknown fears, when you get caught unaware in some difficult situation from which it is hard to extricate himself, when your mind is opened to run on unusual channels, good or bad and when you get into difficulties with the people around you.
