Astrology and Healing Magazine April 2018

Michael Conneely

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Astrology of April 2018, from Michael Conneely:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

Astrology and Healing Newsletter March 2018

Michael Conneely

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 3 Astrology Techniques

Michael Conneely

LOK (Lords of Karma) Pt. 3 Astrology Techniques

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

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

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

Your Natal Planets as Lords of Karma:

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

Your Predictive Planets as Lords of Karma:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


FOOTNOTE:
What are the ‘Laws of Karma’?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 2 Healing Approaches

Michael Conneely

Healing Approaches:
This is Pt. 2 of my Introduction video/blog to my Lords of Karma series where we meet and seek to heal each of the 13 planets of western and Vedic Astrology, as Lords of Karma.

As I said, in Pt. 1 of my LOK Series, my partner Maggie Pashley and I offer a wide range of invaluable worldwide Healing and Empowerment Methods, with which you may wish to enrol to work with, heal and empower in relation to karmic issues. In this Pt. 2, we look into these Healing Approaches in more detail.

And, next, you can go on to Pt. 3 of this Introduction, to be introduced to the Astrological techniques that will be used. (Link will follow when Part 3 of LOK series is Published)

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

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

Healings with myself: Michael Conneely:

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

Healings with Maggie Pashley:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See: maggiepashley.com/modalities and www.bodycodehealings.com/

Myth and Archetypes:

And do note that there in addition, are two other Study, Healing and Empowerment Methods that powerfully underpin our journey together of learning about your planets as Lords of your Karma: these two other study dimensions are learning about the nature and energy of the planets as: Myth and Archetypes:

Myth: Myth is a most powerful means of understanding the planets and their energy and recognising their karmic energy when and where they manifest in your life.

Archetypes: Archetypes are a huge, dramatic and clear message to our minds, emotions, souls and intentions, when we are feeling and experiencing the impacts of the planets as Lords of Karma.

Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 1

Michael Conneely

Introduction Pt 1. Karma and your Planets

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

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

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

Your Karmas and Your Planets:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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


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

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

This is not the case at all.

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury:

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

Sun:

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

Excited to get your own Reading? Buy your Astrology Reading Here.

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

Gandanta:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Outer Planets:

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

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

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

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

The Varga Charts of Vedic Astrology: Divisional Charts:

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

I combine Western Astrology with Vedic Astrology.

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

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

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

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

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

Heart Wall Clearing – Clearing blocks to Love, by Maggie Pashley

One of the most popular healing modalities I use with clients is Heart Wall Clearing. Heart Wall clearing focusses on clearing blocks to giving and receiving love, creativity and success as well as creating a kinder, and more intimate relationship with your own being.

Many people can readily identify with having a barrier to love, whether it’s an inability to appreciate themselves, choosing unavailable or risky partners, pushing away the love that is there, feeling love is elusive and always outside their reach. It can be an ambivalence towards relationships which is not surprising if we have been badly hurt by an ex-partner, by parents or other care-givers.

A Heart Wall is initially created with a positive intention – that of keeping us safe and protected from further hurts. Yet as time goes on it becomes more and more restrictive, cutting us of from what could nourish us as well as what we perceive could harm us. With a Heart Wall present we are filtering our life through the lens of past hurts and not being able to see what it currently here. We can expect to be rejected or hurt and unconsciously attract people to us who do just that. We may avoid relationships altogether or be in a relationship which has no real intimacy.

Another way in which Heart Wall can affect us is by feeling we have to wear a mask to the world and present only what we consider is lovable or acceptable. And because we are not being real it will be impossible for people to really connect with us in any meaningful way and that will only compound our sense of unlovability. We can also reject our creativity, our creations and hide our gifts to the world.

So what is involved in Heart Wall clearing?
Heart Wall Clearing is part of the Emotion Code, a healing approach developed by American chiropractor, Bradley Nelson and uses muscle testing to uncover underlying emotional blocks and then clear them energetically. As I am based in rural Co Sligo the vast majority of my sessions are distance sessions where I stand in as a proxy for them and muscle test myself on their behalf. We meet on-line and my clients can feel very much involved in what emerges during a session. Of course, the most important thing is how much freer and lighter they can feel longer term. Heart Wall clearing normally takes at least three sessions but can take longer which is why I recommend that my clients take advantage of my Heart Wall package.

Some responses to Heart Wall clearing
These are very personal and range from feeling more relaxed and confident, to having better relationships to attracting a new love or opportunities into your life. In my own case, I was single for 13 years after a difficult marriage and even more difficult divorce and while on the face of it I was saying I was open to meeting a partner, I had a massive Keep Off sign on my forehead, and was secretly terrified of the idea of a relationship. Three months after clearing my Heart Wall I met Michael and we have now been together over 8 years. I don’t think I would have been open to that without the Heart Wall clearing. And while there were still some issues to work on within the relationship, I was able to see I could do that together and not run off or reject the rich potential that was on offer.

I worked with a client who told me that the whole atmosphere in the family changed when I started Heart Wall clearing on her mother the previous year. Another client of mine told me how her own mother was feeling much happier and had started dating after I had cleared her (the daughter’s) Heart Wall. This can be because during Heart Wall clearing we not only clear trapped emotions from this lifetime but inherited trapped emotions that come from our ancestors.

Other people have reported feeling more content, happier and confident in themselves, not needing approval and more able to value themselves and acknowledge their own needs. Some have changed jobs to do work more in alignment with their true interest and gifts or made more space for themselves in some way. One general theme seems to be about being more open to life and what is possible now rather than creating a repetition of the past.

For me the beauty of Heart Wall clearing is that it is very direct and pinpoints those events that have really been too much for us to deal with at the time and have not been fully processed. Yet it does it in a gentle and discreet way where we do not have re-experience those painful past emotions or re-enter the trauma and drama and the clearing is very simple and matter-of-fact and it works. And finally that which we have feared that we would be unsafe or too vulnerable without that old protection proves to be wrong as we are more in touch with what is right for us and what is harmful. It makes it more difficult to stay in situations that don’t serve and it makes it easier to go for what can. We are more able to listen to that inner voice which is there to keep us safe and trust our instincts rather than dismiss that inner knowing.

The Astrology of February 2018 from Michael Conneely

First, some background Information:

Please note that this Astrology of February 2018 Newsletter is backed up by two wonderful informative website pages from my main Starwheel Astrology website.
The first of these brings you an extensive reference point offering of all the astrology charts and tables and background information which are referred to in the monthly newsletters. See: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html
And please note that the second of these is a deeply informative ‘Planets Information‘ page for 2018, see:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets.html This webpage provides cumulatively added to reports on the planetary energies and issue etc. of 2018.

I hope these website pages will prove to be a useful and supportive resource to all, offering understanding the astrology of their Destiny, and how to support its best unfoldment in 2018, as well as using this perception for their Healing and Empowerment through 2018.

Which Zodiac?
Please note that my astrology uniquely combines the declarations of both Western psychodynamic and also Vedic Astrology, and offers this as a route to our Healing and Empowerment. I do feel you need to have the combination of both Western and Vedic Astrology if you are to fully understand your Astrological destiny, karmic issues and also emotional scripts and sense of self.
Note that Western astrology uses the Tropical Zodiac which is based on the position of the Sun at the first day of Spring each year, and being Sun-sign based, it depicts our egoic psychological self; and at its best Western astrology is wonderfully psychodynamic.
But Vedic Astrology is orientated to the stars and it depicts our incarnational life purpose and our destiny (of which our psychological self is only a part) and Vedic Astrology must use the Sidereal Zodiac for correct interpretation and prediction. The two Zodiacs are currently 24 degrees apart, and they diverge by a further degree every 72 years.
See my video on ‘Which Zodiac to Use’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XK7AGMzsmKA&t=1s

Please read on below for detailed Planet information and guidance for February 2018, and first before that, here’s my brief February video:

Uniquely, Michael combines both psychodynamic Western Astrology and also Vedic Astrology Course in his worldwide Readings and in his many worldwide courses from foundation to advanced. And also, in these Newsletter’s, you’ll find reference to the Nakshatras that the transits and eclipses etc of each month are activating: the Nakshatras are the wonderful 27-sign lunar zodiac of Vedic Astrology that add such ancient reliable and thorough declaration of our emotionally based identity (warts and all!) and of its spiritual potential as well. Michael also specialises in visionary contact with the planets in his astrology courses, so as to realize their pure divine nature as well as how they manifest in your birth chart (which is usually very different).

Now, let’s start by looking at the Outer Planets:

1. Uranus:
Uranus was stationary in the heavens at the very start of 2018, but he soon turned direct and now he is forging ahead with speed, fire and inspiration.
Uranus starts the month of February 2018 at 24 deg 57 western Aries, which is 0 deg 50 Vedic Aries, and Uranus moves one degree during the month.
Uranus is revolutionising Vedic Aries and especially Ashwini Nakshatra people. Healers are being created.
And note that Uranus is energising Libra people by the opposition he is casting to Libra. Note that Librans will be wired because of this Uranus transit. They will be inspired. They will sever from ways that no longer suit them and they will bring in revolution.
You can see the movements of Uranus in the Astrology of February 2018 and each of the planets, plus Moon Phases and more from the chart for 1st February 2018 which is shown half way down my ‘2018 Charts and Tables’ astrology webpage:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
And in addition to the charts, you can read some examples of what this Uranus transit means (and the transits of all the planets) on my ‘2018 Planets Information’ webpage:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets
Evolutionary Astrology: Regarding Uranus: In addition to Uranus in the Astrology of February 2018, I’d like to introduce to you an important insight from Western Evolutionary Astrology: This is that Uranus is the Past Life Trauma indicator for you.
So, the fact is that the House and sign that Uranus occupies in your Western Astrology birth chart is a very special indicator for unresolved issues from past life.
So, note that you will be offered the chance for resolving these unresolved specific Past Life deficits by experiencing Trauma in the relevant area of life in this lifetime.
So, for example, if you have Uranus in your 11th House in your Western birth chart, then this means that it will be in Groups, especially, in this life that you will experience Trauma. And you will experience this with the divine intention being of offering you a chance for healing unresolved issues from past life relating to Groups. You will need to experience, suffer, develop perception and bring healing into the way you relate to groups!

2. Neptune:
Neptune starts his Astrology of February 2018 at 12 Western Pisces (tropical zodiac), which is 18 deg Aquarius (Vedic sidereal zodiac).
He finishes the month at 13 Western Pisces or 19 Vedic Aquarius
For charts and Tables webpage, see:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
And see my ‘2018 Planets Information’ webpage:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets
Note that Neptune is now very slowly transiting in Shatabishak Nakshatra. Shatabishak is the 24th of the 27 Nakshatras, the wonderful, ancient and supremely powerfully declarative Vedic 27 Lunar Signs: a magnificent guide to our emotional self and to our consciousness arising therefrom.
The depiction of our personality and destiny from the Nakshatras is very much both ‘warts and all’, our awful negatives as well as our positives: our supreme spiritual potential arising from our emotionally based consciousness.
Shatabishak’s focus is quite mystical and special and spiritually ‘contained’, and certainly the energy is all about the person healing themselves – and then being able to heal others.
So, in the case of those with personal planets in Shatabishak Nakshatra, Neptune’s transit here means that some Intuitive Healers are now being created here!
NOTE: Mars-Neptune: on 17th February, Transiting Mars in Vedic Scorpio squares Neptune exact at 19 degrees Scorpio/Aquarius. The affairs of Mars Neptune include secrets, and the affairs of eclipses include the surfacing of secrets. This Mars Neptune conjunction is a mere two days away from exact on the day of the 15th February Eclipse. This mars in Scorpio will bring in intensity and violence.
NOTE: Venus-Neptune: there’s a transiting Venus conjunct Neptune conjunction on 21.2.2018, exact at 19 deg Vedic Aquarius in Shatabishak Nakshatra.
Neptune to Venus Transits: In addition to Neptune in the Astrology of February 2018, I’d like to make an especial note that Neptune’s transits are incredibly powerful. They creep up on us oceanically. They are not hard hit moments, but they are vast beyond belief – and wrenchingly life-changing. And so, for example, if you have this Neptune transit opposition your natal Venus, you will now be experiencing yearning for ideal beauty. You will be yearning for a beauty too ideal ever to be actually found! You will be more sensitive, visionary, artistic and mystical. But the downside is that you might experience loss (or even delusion, if you are that way inclined). And you’ll need to beware being too critical when reality never matches up to your sense of, and your craving for, the impossible ideal!!!

3. Pluto:
Pluto starts off his Astrology of February 2018 at 19 degrees western Capricorn. This is 25 degrees Vedic Sagittarius.
Pluto finishes the month at 20 deg Western Capricorn, which is 26 deg Vedic Aquarius.
For charts and Tables webpage, see:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
And see my ‘2018 Planets Information’ webpage:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets
Within the Nakshatras, the wonderful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology, Pluto is in PurvaAshadha Nakshatra.
And note that I think that a major offering of Pluto to these people is the explosive release of their potential from blocks and formulae. I feel these people can typically so often harm themselves by embracing too formulaic a spiritual path, too formulaic a guru, and laying a too formulaic trip on others as well!
PurvaAshadha is ruled by Venus, and so there can be some release being offered in terms of art or sex or beauty.

3. Saturn conjunct Pluto: note regarding our discussion of Pluto and the Astrology of February 2018, that an important dimension of Pluto’s placement at this time is the ever-closing ‘Saturn Pluto’ conjunction:
This is a vast energy-gathering affecting the world generally, in that Saturn is now steadily transiting towards Pluto in the heavens.
Children born from now until 2010 will have this conjunction in this birth chart. And this will be a huge part of their Karmic Destiny and psychology.
Saturn is now at 10 deg Vedic Sagittarius, so, Saturn is only 10 degrees away from Pluto now, and closing!
They will form exact conjunction with each other on 12th January, 2020. This will be at 28 Vedic Sagittarius, which is 22 western Capricorn. Note that this immensely powerful conjunction is also conjunct Ketu/South Node, Jupiter, Sun and Mercury, all of them in Vedic Sagittarius as well!!
You can see the chart for the exact moment of this Saturn Pluto Conjunction at the foot of my website page: www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
And, so, what is the nature of the great gathering might and power: this vast time-bomb Saturn-Pluto phenomenon?
Well, I think the Saturn Pluto phenomenon is all about ‘held power’. And, negatively, people with this conjunction in their birth chart can be very formidably determined, and just not able to open to the flow, nor release their rigidly-held life prisons, and they imprison others as well (e.g. in ideological prison of political correctness, or in prison of inappropriate geographical location, just to name two examples).
But positively what is it? Well I think it can be the karmic ability to combine power with structure, to use strategy and containment for achieving powerful wonderful death and rebirth transformation.
Saturn does represent our central karmic bedrock, our especial blocks. The people who use their Saturn Pluto conjunction negatively just don’t know how to let their transformation explode or flow. They need to bring in healing – easier said than done! And they need to find empowerment. I know all about how very hard all this is: I have natal Saturn conjunct Venus.
When Saturn Pluto people are using this conjunction negatively, they have their grim formulae! And they will impose it on others!
But, remember, Saturn’s energy is also positive of course. Yes, he demands of us patience, endurance, ability to take the hard work, the provision of suffering circumstances and scripts so that we can make the needed spiritual and karmic progress in this life, and achieve Saturn’s offered Golden Reaping
Pluto? Well, Pluto on the other hand is the seed and essence of our own power. Pluto is our potential for needed death and rebirth. Pluto smashes the blocks put there by our karmic path and by our families and by ourselves: blocks to our fulfilment.
But when it’s a case of Pluto’s conjunction with Saturn, obviously, Pluto is our locked-up power! Pluto is our caged Power, Pluto is our denied Power!!! Pluto is held in prison by Saturn, and this is a power we cannot access. And so, it’s power denied; it is power that festers; it is power that imprisons. We are talking here of Pluto imprisoned and blocked by Saturn is our own power that we are afraid to access.
Pluto’s power is needed and beneficial, but it can be terribly, terribly dangerous if not allowed to express itself properly, and so can be used as ‘power over’. This caging of Pluto so that his power suppurates and leaks out of the denied corners of our life-prison can so disempower ourself – or others! And we can FEAR our own power. And note that Pluto denied, is a Pluto that FESTERS.
BUT on the other hand, we do see that if we have a case of ‘Our Pluto freed’, and our Pluto ethically perceived, understood and handled, then such a Pluto is actually our channel to having the intuition, insight and expression of power, that is needed so that we can actually become our Divine Nature.

4. Chiron, the Wounded Healer:
Chiron, is our Existential Wound, and potentially if we do the healing work: the wonderful Wounded Healer in our chart – and in our life. In the Astrology of February 2018, Chiron is now at 26 western Pisces (using the Tropical Zodiac), which is 2 degrees Pisces in the Sidereal Zodiac that is used by Vedic Astrology.
Chiron finishes February 2018 at 27 Western Pisces, which is 3 deg Vedic Pisces.
For charts and Tables webpage, see:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology
And see my ‘2018 Planets Information’ webpage:
www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-planets
Our deep understanding of your Chiron benefits from being interpreted using BOTH your Western Astrology Chart and your Vedic Astrology Chart, and the position of Chiron in our Vedic birth chart offers additional intense illumination to the western astrology depiction.
Varga Charts (Vedic Divisional Charts): And not only that, the fact is that the position of Chiron in our Vedic Divisional Charts or Varga charts is also intensely illuminating.
Vedic Astrology has a wonderful system of assessing whether a planet is Exalted or Debilitated in your birth chart and in your life.

And Vedic Astrology also has a wonderful series of Divisional Charts (called Varga Charts – sometimes the term harmonic charts is used). Vedic Astrology Varga charts are derived from the main Vedic birth chart, where each Varga chart makes the most wonderful special and uniquely valuable declaration as to a specific area of your life such as: Marriage, ancestral curse, wealth, spiritual nature/worship, overall strength/limitation of each planet’s potential manifestation in your chart in therefore in your life, etc.
For details of my wonderful Varga Course, see: https://www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com/varga-course.html

Your Chiron Return: A really important event to be aware of is your ‘Chiron Return’. Chiron takes fifty years to orbit the Sun, and so when you are aged about fifty, you experience your ‘Chiron Return’. Chiron depicts our ‘existential wound’, in the healing of which we may become the Healer of others.
So, what happen is that your Chiron Return precipitates a Healing Crisis, often a ‘crisis of meaning’ as well as a ‘crisis of health’.
And at this time, you have no choice but to accept or refuse the crucial challenge aimed at you. And note that to re-evaluate and heal your life. If you were unwilling to take the needed healing steps at the time of your Uranus opposition at about the age of forty, then the Chiron Return will be all the more difficult.
Often, health problems are triggered by our unwillingness to confront or honour our genuine feelings and true nature.
5. The Nodes of the Moon: Rahu North Node and Ketu South Node:

Rahu/North Node moved into Vedic Cancer at the time of the August 2017 Eclipses, and so at the same time Ketu South Node moved into Vedic Capricorn.
The Nodes take eighteen months to transit a sign, so the Nodes will remain in these signs until 8th March 2019 (Mean Nodes).
The Nodes are huge shadow energies with immense effect on the out-turning of our lives.
The Nodes are also the depictors of our incarnational destiny, understood in terms of our psychology using Western Astrology Tropical Zodiac, and understood in terms of our Incarnational Life Purpose and its Unfoldment using Vedic Astrology Sidereal Zodiac.
In fact, the position of the Nodes of the Moon in our birth chart state our incarnational destiny: Ketu South Node shows what we come into this life with from our past lives. And we are thrown across our chart towards the energy of Rahu, always opposite Ketu. The energy of Rahu has to be driven for us to get to our destination, but we will not actually arrive there unless we purify Rahu in our life.
The energy of Ketu and Rahu is actually that of Demons. They are eclipse points. But because Vedic Astrology is Tantric, our task is to find our personal Light through our personal Darkness that the Nodes embody.
We are here to burn our Negative Karmas. We are here to manifest our very special spark and talent in this lifetime.

Note that the energy and manifestation of Ketu in your life is complicated, and includes Past Life material. Maggie is in Jupiter-Jupiter-Ketu Dasha or ‘Vedic predictive period’ (i.e. two three levels: Main Dasha and two levels of sub periods) and her Ketu is conjunct Neptune in 12th House Virgo in her birth chart, and fascinatingly she started up intuitive healing of held bodily pain work in this period: talking to your unconscious to heal held long term bodily pain.

Nodes transiting Signs:
In the Astrology of February 2018, note that while Rahu transits Vedic Cancer, we may indeed be driven to a focus around emotions and nurture, home and mother.
I feel part of the divine goal is to put us more in touch with our instinctual nature. And note that the emotionalism of Cancer may bring you turbulence and stress, emotionalism and fears.
If you are a Cancer 1st House/Moon, you may well become more powerful at promoting yourself and more charismatic during the Rahu transit of Vedic Cancer.
If you are Libra 1st House/Moon, this Rahu in Cancer transit is in your 10th house of Career, and will ambitiously promote career.
And with Ketu transiting Capricorn, well: Ketu brings otherworldliness; indeed, his insights can burst with catastrophic-feeling suddenness and awfulness, but for divine purpose. But here he is working within the sober structure of Capricorn, so I feel his aim includes bring a more spiritual dimension to our work, strategies and ambitions, and of course we may have to deal with Ketu wanting to undermine our needed business structures in our life. Or of course some people may utilize Ketu’s energy here to push out fundamentalism.

Kal Sarpa Yoga: I feel that Kal Sarpa Yoga energy exists when all the planets of Vedic Astrology are enclosed on one side of the Nodal Axis, but I also feel that the Kal Sarpa Yoga continues until one of the other planets has moved out beyond the sign occupied by these enclosing Nodes. So, for this reason I would say that Kal Sarpa Yoga exists in the heavens until at least one planet moves outside the two opposite signs of the nodal axis. In other words, in the Astrology of February 2018,  I feel that this Kal Sarpa Yoga episode continues until Venus leaves Capricorn, the sign occupied by Ketu/South Node on 5.2.2018.
I would also say based on my pragmatic experience and authentic observation, that Kal Sarpa Yoga remains in force including at those times when the Moon moves outside the Nodes-enclosed other planets during the Moon’s transits round the zodiac each month. I say this because the Moon being out there alone and unsupported makes the challenge to the Mind and Consciousness even harder: the Moon is Kemadruma or Unsupported.
The energy of Kal Sarpa Yoga is divisive, though of course, it is absolutely crucial to note that some individuals can use this difficult spiritual challenge to develop their spiritual awareness and level of consciousness to great levels. The Kal Sarpa Yoga energy is noted to be in some cases extreme, intense, preposterous and aggressive, restless. Often very hardworking. but in some other cases passive. Donald Trump has Kal Sarpa Yoga in his birth chart, and he was elected President at the time when there was Kal Sarpa yoga in the heavens as well.
Kal means time and Sarpa means snake. The term yoga is used because this combination can be seen as a difficult karmic rope that it is very hard to untie: a difficult destiny to untie.
I would say that, by my definition, the Kal Sarpa Yoga re-asserts itself from 16.7.2018.

Nodes transiting Houses: And in addition, we have of course to take into account the House that Rahu is transiting. So, for example, if it’s a case of Rahu transiting our first House then we will become more driven to assert ourself in the world. But remember that this will mean that Ketu is transiting our 7th house of relationship so this may mean that our spouse is feeling ill or under the weather or lack of confidence, and so some of our Rahu assertion needs to be directed to support of our spouse.
Note that Rahu’s 18-month transit through Vedic Cancer will cast an aspect onto Vedic Scorpio.

Nodes transiting Nakshatras (Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology):
Rahu, always retrograde using Mean Nodes, transited into the end of Capricorn at the time of the August 2017 Eclipses.
Rahu in Nx 9 Ashlesha: and thus, in terms of the 27 Nakshatras, the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology, Rahu entered the 9th Nakshatra Ashlesha (starting off at the end of Ashlesha and Cancer: the 4 degrees of Gandanta Zone).
Ashlesha is serpent energy, so this is huge for those with planets in Ashlesha. Optimally it means their being motivated to embrace their depths in death and rebirth change of consciousness. Negatively there’s emotional turmoil and storms. Ashleshas need to avoid rationalising their experiences, or handling them formulaically, but need to authentically engage with their experiences and authentically transform. They may best seek deep mystical experiences during this transit.
See my YouTube Video and Blog on Ashlesha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0nvWaJPtcA&t=25s
//blog.starwheelastrology.com/worldwide-nakshatras-course-and-ashlesha-nakshatra/
Rahu in Nx 8 Pushyami: Then, when Rahu has finished transiting through Ashlesha, Rahu will move into the 8th Nakshatra Pushyami Nakshatra on 27.4.2018. more about Rahu in Pushyami in future issues of this magazine.
See my Video and Blog on Pushyami: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYbgvNSRWvk&t=25s
//blog.starwheelastrology.com/worldwide-nakshatras-course-and-pushyami-nakshatra/
Ketu in Nx 22 Shravana: Note that while Rahu is transiting Cancer, Ketu is transiting Capricorn, always opposite Rahu. And note that within Capricorn, Ketu is transiting Nx 22 Shravana Nakshatra on 1.1.18 at the start of 2018 until 30.82018. Ketu in Shravana could promote a very spiritual even mystical energy.

Ketu in Nx 21 Uttara Ashadha: Ketu moves from Shravana to Nx 21 UttaraAshadha on 30.8.2018.

6. Saturn: Sade Sate, Ashtama Shani and Saturn Return:
It is very important to be aware if you are in Sade Sate (the seven and a half year period when Saturn transits across your natal Moon), Ashtama Shani (when Saturn transits your 8th house from natal Moon, or a Saturn Return (when Saturn returns to his natal position once every 28 years). For charts, see webpage: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html

In the Astrology of February 2018, Saturn starts February 2018 at 4 deg western Capricorn, moving to 7 deg Capricorn by 1st March.
In the sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology, Saturn moves from 10 deg Vedic Sagittarius in Mula Nakshatra to 13 Degrees Vedic Sagittarius, still in Mula Nakshatra. Saturn entered Vedic Sagittarius on 26th October 2017, and he will remain in Vedic Sagittarius until January 2020. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter and is an expansionary and optimistic energy. But Saturn is contractive, so at this time, the meeting of Opposites should lead to us learning to ground our ideals, and strategize our expansionary urges. Painful? Probably! Useful learning? Definitely! Learning to slow down? Oh, no, surely not that!
Saturn Transits through Nakshatras:
Saturn entered Nx 19 Mula Nakshatra when he transited into Vedic Sagittarius transits on 26th October. Saturn continues to transit Nx 19 Mula Nakshatra until March 3rd 2018, when he enters Nx 20 PurvaAshadha.
What is the deep spiritual understanding of Saturn transiting Mula Nakshatra ruled over by Dark Goddess Niritti? See my two-part video:

7. Jupiter
Jupiter is in Libra in Vedic Astrology. Jupiter entered Vedic Libra on 11th September 2017 and in the Astrology of February 2018, Jupiter starts off February 2018 at 27 deg Vedic Libra.
This is 21 deg western Scorpio in western Astrology Tropical Zodiac, moving to 23 deg western Scorpio by 1st March.
Jupiter in Vedic Libra promotes the possibility of the person agreeing to partnership and marriage. There’s artistic creativity, diplomacy and business optimism.
The air signs may feel more joy – and there can be overeating! Over-expenditure! Overindulgence!
Jupiter Stationary to Retrograde: But note that this is Jupiter slowing to Station. And on 9th March 2018, Jupiter turns Retrograde at 29 deg Vedic Libra.
And note that when a planet’s velocity is slow, the effect of his energy is all the stronger.
Note that you must expect a less expansionary sense of purpose once Jupiter stations and turns retrograde, and so allow for this in planning and monitoring your work and projects.
This stationing Jupiter in Vedic Libra will bring a lot of humanitarian benefits at the time of the 15th February Eclipse and all the more so as February gives way to March.
In Vedic Astrology, Jupiter is continuing his year-long transit of the Vedic Sign of Libra. So, whatever house Libra is in your Vedic birth chart will receive the blessings, purpose and enlargement of transiting Jupiter. And remember that Libra is also receiving explosive revolutionary energies from Uranus which is transiting opposite in Vedic Aries at this time.
In our case we moved to a new house when Jupiter entered Vedic Libra (which is my 4th House of home), and we have been so happy and blessed with our new house, which is on the Atlantic Coast of Sligo near Ireland’s most ancient sacred monuments, and near three of Ireland’s finest surfing beaches. We have set up a healing centre and AirBnB. The area is lovely and deeply rural and wholesome.
And Jupiter is also casting favourable aspects to Vedic Aries, Aquarius and Gemini as he transits Libra.
House: To assess the effects of this Jupiter through Libra Transit you need to take account of what House Libra is from your natal Ascendant and from your natal Moon. For example, for Piscean Moon’s this Jupiter 2018 transit is 8th House and could bring inheritance. For Cancer Ascendant this Jupiter Libra transit will bring move of house or great improvement where you are living.
Dasa/Predictive Period: Note that you do have to take into account the Dasa or Predictive Period you are in to assess the results of any Transit. So, in this case, if your Jupiter is in good standing in your Vedic birth chart, and if you are in Jupiter Dasa or Predictive Period, then this Jupiter transit through Libra will go very well for you.
See my Prediction Course: www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com/advanced-vedic-prediction
Jupiter’s transit through the Nakshatras 2018:
Basically Jupiter starts 2018 in Nx 16 Vishakha Nakshatra, but dips back into Nx 15 Swati briefly (18th June to 2nd August), then returning to Vishakha. He then moves on into Nx 17 Anuradha and then Nx 18 Jyestha.
So, Jupiter starts 2018 at 22 deg Vedic Libra in Nx 16 Vishakha (which is ruled by Jupiter, power animal the Male Tiger). Jupiter in Vishakhas can bring out the talents of advisor or counsellor, though Vishakha dangers can be aggressive focus, and maybe for some alcohol etc.
Jupiter continues to transit Direct until he reaches his Station at 29 Vedic Libra, still in Vishakha on 8.3.2018.
Jupiter then Retrogrades and reaches 20 deg Libra on 18th June when he enters Nx 15 Swati (ruled by Rahu, power animal the Male Buffalo).
This Retrograde ends on 10th July at 19 deg Libra, still in Swati Nakshatra.
Jupiter then moves forward again, reaching 20 deg Libra and re-entering Vishakha on 2nd August 2018 and Jupiter continues on Direct and leaves Vedic Libra to enter Vedic Scorpio on 11th October 2018, though still continuing in Vishakha which overlaps into Scorpio.
Jupiter in Vedic Scorpio could bring out deeper spiritual energies.
Jupiter then enters the next Nakshatra, Nx 17 Anuradha on 27th October 2018, at 3 deg Vedic Scorpio. And Jupiter enters Nx 18 Jyestha on 27th December 2018, ending the year at 17 deg Scorpio.

8. Mars:
In Vedic Astrology, in the Astrology of February 2018,  Mars moves from to 9 deg to 26 deg Vedic Scorpio, in February 2018.
And Mars is at 3 deg western Sagittarius on 1st February, moving to 20 deg western Sagittarius on 1st March.
Mars entered Vedic Scorpio on January 16th and he leaves Scorpio for Vedic Sagittarius on March 7th. Note most importantly that Mars rules Vedic Scorpio, and so his energy is very powerful and penetrating, and could be occult. Mars can be made turbid by the sexual or hurt energies that are held in Scorpio. Mars in Scorpio is ANGER.
NOTE: 2018 Mars gets more and more angry and strong. It REALLY IS IMPORTANT for you to recognise when this sort of energy is arising, and seek to focus the current of your Mars energy into chosen and productive strategies, pursuits and leisure activities.
MARS WARNING AHEAD: AND YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE the issues of Mars energies that are repeatedly coming up as 2018 progresses! Positively we are called to manifest and ethically manage strong warrior spirit.
NOTE: Mars-Neptune: on 17th February, Transiting Mars in Vedic Scorpio squares Neptune exact at 19 degrees Scorpio/Aquarius. The affairs of Mars Neptune include secrets, and the affairs of eclipses include the surfacing of secrets. This Mars Neptune conjunction is a mere two days away from exact on the day of the 15th February Eclipse. This mars in Scorpio will bring in intensity and violence.

Check out what House Vedic Scorpio is in your birth chart to see what area of life this Mars-Power will especially be penetrating! Note that Mars in Scorpio is not good for relationship areas of life.

9. Venus:
Venus started 2018 at 15 degrees Vedic Sagittarius, following which, Venus entered Vedic Capricorn on 13th January 2018, where Venus remains until February 6th. So in the Astrology of February 2018, we need to be aware of the effect on our Venus energy of Venus’ transit through Vedic Capricorn and Vedic Aquarius.
Venus is in a friend-ruled sign when transiting Capricorn, and this is good for relationships, technical abilities and aesthetics. Taurus and Libra Lagnas or Moons will benefit from this energy.
Venus conjuncts Ketu in the heavens on January 29th and for several days either side of this date. Carefully monitor the quality of your loving relationship at this time. Beware the triggering of rejection scripts, including tendency for these from past lives. There could possibly be deeply spiritual relationship at this time.
On 6th February Venus moves into Vedic Aquarius, with Venus then entering Vedic Pisces on 2nd March 2018.
Venus in Aquarius is generally a creative and innovative energy.
Note that Venus is caught up in a complex web of energies from the five-planet conjunction in Vedic Aquarius in February 2018, with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Neptune and Venus.
See the charts for 1st day of both February and March 2018, as well as for the eclipse on 15.2.18, on my 2018 charts webpage: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html
So, essentially Venus is in Vedic Aquarius for February 2018.
in western astrology, Venus starts February at 17 deg western tropical Aquarius, moving into Western Pisces on 11.2.18, and finishing February at 21 deg western Pisces.
Venus Combust: It’s important to note that Venus is combust the Sun for the first half of February, up to February 19th, and this does mean that we will need to be careful to avoid love, pleasure and art being swallowed up by Solar Will, Assertion and Drive in our life!
Venus will be in Nx 24 Shatabishak (Aquarius 6.40-20.00) from February 11 – 22nd, Shatabishak is ruled by Rahu, and is self-contained and independent, and also the sign where healing one’s self creates the healer of others.

10. Mercury:
In the Astrology of February 2018, Mercury transits Vedic Capricorn from 28th January to February 14th. And Mercury then transits into Vedic Aquarius from February 14th to March 3rd.
Mercury is exactly conjunct Ketu South Node on 9th February at 20 degrees Vedic Capricorn. Beware confusion or even anger. Monitor desire for change.
And so, of course, Mercury too is caught up in the complex energy web of five conjunct planets in Vedic Aquarius described above (plus aspects being received from other planets too).
Watch for new and unusual thoughts at the time Mercury transits Aquarius. And also, be aware of that dimension of Aquarius that is about both rules and brotherhood of man, and also inventiveness and thinking outside the box.
Note that Mercury is very closely eclipsed on 15th February. Mercury is at 1 deg 43 Vedic Aquarius and the Sun/Moon eclipse is at 3 deg 1 Vedic Aquarius.
NOTE Mars square Mercury: On February 28th Mars squares Mercury in the heavens, so in the run up to this aspect and during it, use Mars Mercury combination with perception and care, and avoid angry speech.
Mercury enters Vedic Pisces on 3rd March: Oh no! Mercury is debilitated in Pisces. Do sort out your communication and IT issues during February, or you will regret it. And expect all your communication and IT issue to take a lot longer to process and handle once Mercury has entered Vedic Pisces.
Indeed, Mercury turns Retrograde at 22 Vedic Pisces on March 23rd. so really do take care, especially if you have Retrograde Mercury conjunct Ketu in your birth chart as I do!!!
However, it is possible that with Mercury in Pisces you might experience a more intuitive mindset.

11. Sun:
Sun transits Vedic Aquarius from February 12th to March 14th. Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, so this does mean that our expression of our Sun, the Divine Charioteer in our life, will be somewhat muted and less expansive. And we may need to bring careful awareness of what is going on at this time in terms of our Sun doing his needed work as the King of our Kingdom, who needs to go forth to do what must be done for the good and thriving of the Kingdom.

A most important feature of the Sun’s energy in the Astrology of February 2018, is that on Feb 4 Sun conjunct Ketu 20 Capricorn, Shravana. Importantly, Ketu greatly weakens the substance and confidence of the Sun. And yet another dimension to add to this is that both Sun and Ketu are fiery in nature and can lash out. When these two characteristics combine, there could be nasty situations.
Feb 6 Venus enters Aquarius, Dhanishta (until Mar. 2)
Feb 13 Sun enters Aquarius, Dhanishta (until Mar. 14)
Feb 15 Mercury enters Aquarius, Dhanishta (until Mar. 3) Mercury is conjunct Ketu on February 9th. This will be inspirational, intuitive and spiritual and/or very erratic and disorganised.
Feb 16 New Moon Solar Eclipse 3 Aquarius, Dhanishta. This eclipse will particularly affect Leo and Aquarius people.
Feb 17 Sun conjuncts Mercury 4 Aquarius, Dhanishta

12. The Solar Eclipse of 15th February 2018:
A major energy in the Astrology of February 2018, is the Solar Eclipse of 15th February. What will the effect be of Sun, Venus and Mercury all transiting over the Ketu/South Node, in January and early February? This follows on from the eclipse of January 31st 2018. 
I for one will monitor what is going in in my consciousness, emotions, and management of my life PLUS Also inspiration, in this run-up to the 15th February Eclipse, where Sun and Moon are also in Aquarius, at 3 deg Aquarius.

The Eclipse New Moon of February 15th is a ‘Sun conjunct Moon’ Eclipse, and this Eclipse occurs at 3 deg Vedic Aquarius.
This Eclipse falls in Nx 23 Dhanistha in terms of the 27 Vedic Lunar Signs.
This is 27 deg Western Aquarius in the western Tropical Zodiac.

The Eclipse is at 21.05 hrs in the West of Ireland. For Time and Date of Eclipses and other astrological phenomena where you live, see:
http://www.timeanddate.com/
Although there were no planets occupying Vedic Aquarius at the start of February 2018, there will be an amazing five planets plus Ketu South Node all in Vedic Aquarius by the moment of this Eclipse: Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury and Neptune plus Ketu!
People with planets in Vedic Aquarius will really feel these energy shifts.
Actually, we will all feel these energy shifts, whether or not we have planets there, because we will feel the shifts in the area of life for the House that is the Vedic sign of Aquarius in the first half of February 2018
You can see the chart for this 15th February Solar Eclipse, one third of the way down the chart page for 2018: https://www.starwheelastrology.com/2018-astrology.html
And note that there’s even more power to this eclipse than what I have already stated! This is because, amazingly, in addition to this five-planet conjunction named above, there’s a further three other planets are additionally casting their ‘special aspects’ to Vedic Aquarius:
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. All three of these are giving their special aspects to Aquarius at this time, energizing and bringing focus to the sign and the planets that will be moving through it.
So, this means that if you, personally, have planets in Vedic Aquarius in your birth chart (or Planets in Vedic Leo opposite) then those planets of yours will be most complexly and powerfully energised by this February 15th Eclipse.
And of course, for everybody, the House affairs that are Aquarius in their chart will receive these powerful and complex eclipse energies.
And so, for example, if Aquarius is your 10th House, career matters would receive shocking complex jolt. Indeed, we need to expect to feel shifts in our life in those two earlier weeks at the start of February.
We’ll feel these shifts as Venus, Sun and Mercury all move from the Vedic sign of Capricorn, into the Vedic sign of Aquarius, to join Neptune already there in Vedic Aquarius, of course.
In detail, Venus moves in to Vedic Aquarius on February 6th, the Sun moves in to Vedic Aquarius on February 13th, Mercury on February 15th and, last of all: Moon moves in to Vedic Aquarius on February 15th in the afternoon of the day of the Eclipse, which actually occurs, itself, at 21:05 hrs, here in the West of Ireland.
So, the first half of February 2018, will be a growing, powerful energised time. And note that the energy will particularly affect the affairs of the House that is Vedic Aquarius in your Vedic birth chart.

Lords of Karma Uranus Pt. 3: Astrology

Michael Conneely

It would be wise to Look at Uranus Part 1 and Uranus Part 2 Before reading further here (thank-you)

In part 3 of Uranus as Lord of Karma, we look at the way to analyse the Astrology of Uranus, natally and predictively. And we look at the issue of whether the karmic impact of Uranus is fated, or whether we can do something to perceive, understand and then change/transform the effect of Uranus in our life.

Uranus in our Birth Chart: Fated or Not?

Uranus is a crucial part of the karma with which you start your life. He is one of the planets in your birth chart which are in fact a map of your destiny and potential, your karma and your means to achieve growth in relation to your karma. Here’s a list of the topics we take a look at in this blog: just a tiny few of the themes for understanding of Uranus in our birth chart:

1. Uranus v. Saturn
2. Uranus in the Signs
3. Uranus in the Houses
4. Uranus Aspects to other planets
5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:
6. Uranus Retrograde:
7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:
8. Uranus in Synastry:
9. Uranus in our Predictive Astrology: Fated or Not?

1. Uranus v. Saturn:

Uranus brings bursts and phases of awareness and inspiration. Fresh new insights appear out of nowhere. What you always knew was there but pretended wasn’t, suddenly becomes plane.
If you’re sensitive you can feel the beams of inspiration coming and going. They heighten your awareness, they stimulate you intellectual perception. They enhance your intellectual energy. You discover things about your life and your present phase. You find new solutions. You see how stuck or inhibited you’ve been. You become spontaneous, and can make sudden decisions and take sudden new directions.
Saturn grinds away with a life of blocks and duties. Uranus steps in and shatters them.

But: Remember: Saturn castrated Uranus!!!

Uranus breaks illusion.
Uranus frees you from dependency.
Uranus lets you insist on your right to strike out into revolution.
Uranus jolts you to break free from your shackles.
Uranus makes you agile. Keenly aware. Whole.

You now know that God is an energy that flows and manifest through you. Turn away from the imposed bureaucratic priesthood and the goo-goo stupid congregation, and the manipulative ‘charm’ of the priest.

Importantly you loosen your hold on your past scripts. Be prepared for the erratic. You are spurred to change your patterns and obsessions. They seem of less consequence. They are seen as outmoded and overdue for replacement.

Uranus energy brings you sudden higher awareness, sudden big-picture perception, instant knowing. And you must stand up for this. Don’t let others drag you down. Sudden ability to do things better and faster. It is an enlightenment. Uranus breaks inner barriers to his enlightenment. He blows apart outgrown thought patterns and preconceived family or societal programming and stuck unthinking limited beliefs and attitudes.

Uranus also acts on your life powerfully as your life predictively unfolds. He brings you karmic challenges, as well as inspiration and energies of revolution with the divine purpose of destroying your blocks and maximising your realisation of your potential.
You need to perceive their scope and definition, and perceive what is their most positive meaning and potential.

Above all you must be prepared to stand up for your uniqueness.
You must be prepared to stand up for your new perceptions, beliefs and intentions. No sniffing at life! No stuck patterns, now!
Freedom, originality, self-honesty
You must be prepared to strike out into new continents.
You must be prepared to be different from those around you.

Your Uranus karmas are not fated. You need to see them as opportunities for healing and for your empowerment. You need to be able to be discerning both about clinging to blocks that you are crassly letting hold you back, and abut new presentiments and goals which are impractical. Observe your thoughts, desires and behaviour; bring discrimination. Detach yourself from relationship scripts which hold you back from seeing the truth, and from being open to revolution.

And you must be thankful and celebrate what Uranus has brought you to. Delight in your constant amazement. Accept fascination. Cherish change.

My Astrology Readings and Courses are expert and caring ways for you to do this, with totally individual teaching methods.
They include optional healing add-ons
And Maggie Pashley’s worldwide healings are a powerful way to work with your Uranus challenges.

2. Uranus in the Houses:

Take as example Uranus in 11th House in your birth chart: karmically, Uranus is about trauma held in past life memories, about uprising against capricious and unjust tyranny, in the subtle mind, the subjugation and devaluation of our full potential, about our past life subjugation to outmoded institutions.

We can usefully contact and work with these past life karmas through past life regression, dream work, vision journey. Our other lives become a necessary quarry for self-healing, for individuation, for becoming the fullness of the special spark we incarnated to become.

The Outer Planet Uranus – a God of Change, can thus become an Evolutionary Agent.

So, let’s take a brief look at an example: Uranus in 11th House:

this is the person who is destined to experience (and heal from the experience) of living an inner lie due to experience of rejection or punishment, of fitting into groups on a false basis as a result. The attempt to fabricate security out of false, conditioned, imposed ways produces enormous mental stress, fear, crippling anxiety and emotional torsion: enforced living of a lie, in fact the inability to see the truth until the Uranus healing crisis arrives!

And how often does this individual make dysfunctional fittings in to groups, until the healing crisis finally arrive, and he finds and insists on his true worth, and so refuses any longer to fit into the unworthy groups.

3. Uranus in the Signs:

Take as example Uranus in Cancer. Clearly Uranus’ passages through Signs are generational, but we can usefully take a look for the need to heal Uranus trauma and re-birth in respect of the individual who has Uranus in Cancer. Does he need to experience early or indeed ongoing absence of good mothering so as to learn to mother himself? When will the healing crises come that will end his pattern of going for mother’s milk where it can never be found??? What are the effects on him of this karma: helplessness, touchiness? Dependence, worthless self-image?
We can seek to identify Cancerian past-life experiences. Was there imprinting in the womb? What were the circumstances of his birth and conception? What childhood wounds? What emotional scripts?

4. Uranus in Aspect to our birth chart planets:

Take as example Uranus in aspect the Sun:
Sudden inspirations. New creativity.
Swift and sudden important developments.
You are abruptly shaken out of your stuck ways.
You face life with new courage and faint in your own powers.
You clear away limitations
You want the new. You strive obsessively for your dreams to come true.
Uranus opposition Sun can force change upon you.
Health treatments can go well.
Negatively:
Your life becomes wild and chaotic, unpredictable and disruptive
Accidents.
A big theme running through our life is the Saturn – Uranus dilemma.

5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:

Psychotherapeutic Astrology has a magnificent repertoire of chart aspect shapes that identify the personality structures caused when planets aspects form chart aspect shapes, including of course unaspected planets.
These represent karmic structures within the personality which get revealed to our perception at predictable dates, and which can be worked with using psychosynthesis approach.

Here’s an example:

 

 

 

 

6. Uranus Retrograde:

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

Retrograde Uranus means that you will find it harder to bring in needed revolution. You will find it harder to receive and implement the call to revolution when your Uranus transit happens.

Retrograde Uranus plays havoc with relationships. It can make the person false to their identity. It can lead to irritability or fighting. It can make it so hard for them to express their inner freedom, and so this is taken out on the partner.
Retrograde Uranus make the individual scatter his efforts in a driven way to find information and paradigms that will help him fill the aching void that he lives in a way that is false to his individuality. He may have learned something about independence in a previous lifetime, and is now really tested to implement it, and harmonise it with other areas of his life, or perhaps he was not independent enough in previous lifetime.

7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:

When analysing the manifestation of Uranus in conjunction to one of the Nodes of the Moon: Rahu North Node or Ketu South Node, the house and sign in the Vedic Cart needs to be taken into account. The western chart will depict the psychological implications.
Uranus conjunct the South Node Ketu is the person who came from a Uranian past life: maverick, eccentric, individualist, who may reply on the wisdom from the past and have channelling abilities and can be a mystic now. But on a lower level of manifestation, this individual is scattered and erratic.
North Node Rahu conjunct Uranus is he gadget lover. But at the higher manifestation this is the individual who is attuned to collective forces, creative, shocking or revolutionary.

8. Planets square the Nodes:

If you have Uranus square Nodes: look for past life effects such that the person now is driven by the need to find liberty from excessive, blocking demeaning past life conditioning. Crises in individuation are created.
This is a past life trauma indicator: analyse Uranus by sign, house and aspect.
Past life fear blocks individuation or proper authentic self-expression.

Vedic astrology provides incarnational life purpose statement from study of the nodes in your birth chart and planets aspecting them
Western astrology also provides a definition of the effects of the nodal axis, but the definition of western astrology is more a psychological statement.

9. Uranus in Synastry:

In general terms, if Uranus of one partner strongly aspects a personal planet of the other partner, or if one partner or both is strongly Uranian, then these can be the themes:

Intense, fast rushing into relationship

Want total excitement
then
Freedom, impersonality, aloofness.

Spasmodic – or fluctuation.
Unstable and sporadic
Gets bored. Experiments
Always bringing in the new scheme or fanatic interest
These people get close and are then suddenly distant.
They protest frustration at closeness; then they protest frustration at distance.
On-off relationships
Love affairs.
POINT: SUN/URANUS

PRINCIPLE: A revolutionary spirit, A progressive mind. Excitement. Upset.
PSYCHOLOGICAL:
+ Originality, consciousness of objectives, focus on aims, a far-seeing mind, love of freedom,
Striving for reform. Mobility.
– Argumentative, nervy, willful, capricious, erratic, contradictory, impatient, excitable, muddle-
headed. Trouble-maker.
C: strained or tense inner life. The self-willed reformer.
BIOLOGICAL: the rhythmic functions of the cells and body. Pulse. Breathing
SOCIOLOGICAL: the innovator, the reformer, the inventor, the technician, the Rebel.

Venus-Uranus: The Venus-Uranus person Can be quite techie and surf the internet when her loving guy wants closeness time.

10. Uranus in our Predictive Astrology – Fated or Not?

First of all, in regard to this topic of Uranus’ Predictive Astrology, here’s some predictive data:
Uranus orbit is 84 years
Uranus’ first square to his natal position is around 22 years. The guy tours the USA on a motorbike or emigrates to New Zealand!
Your Uranus opposition is around 42 years.
Your 2nd Uranus square is around 63 years.
Your Uranus Return is at around 84 years. This is spiritual rebirth when experienced at its highest.

Uranus Transits call for you to rejects blocks and limitations, to look within yourself now, and to open to the call for your fulfilment of your karmic potential.
Uranus has great power, dynamism, suddenness and intensity, so you are called to make a clean sweep of what limits you now, and embrace revolution and inspiration.
Uranus will bring you intuitions, urges, obsession, visions and inspirations to force you to open to his energy of revolution in your life and discard what’s limiting. He works with dreams, visions, feelings and presentiments.
Uranus works with you in the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and artistic spheres.
Weirdly, Uranus is both democratic, iconoclastic and also the individualist autocratic leader!
Uranus is very attuned to electronic devices and gadgets.
Uranus at his highest is esoteric, with hidden explosive powers.
