Waiting for Destruction? Uranus enters Aries. Eclipse 21st August 2017?

Michael Conneely

Eclipse 21st August 2017 : the Possible Outcomes and Consequences

Uranus transited the Pisces to Aries Revati/Aries Gandanta Zone in 2017, first entering it in May 2106, and Uranus will still be at 0 deg Aries in January 2018, and won’t finally leave the Gandanta Zone until March 2018.

It was Uranus entering Aries/Ashwini 84 years ago that led to the burning of the Reichstag which was followed by the rise of Adolph Hitler that led to terrible World War.

I am writing this post to stress that the world needs to recognize the danger is re-arising.

I am not saying that everyone will handle the energy of Uranus entering Vedic Aries/Ashwini Nakshatra in the way that Adolph Hitler did, but some definitely will try to handle it that way.

And i pray that countries where there’s fundamentalist religion do not have a guru or prophet now arise to unify them.

This was what happened with Germany in the run up to World War 2.

A Prophet could unite currently fighting fundamentalist states.

It would just like August 24th  410 AD when the Roman Empire was wiped out because the Huns, the Visigoths and the Vandals united, and they crossed the Rhine (which had frozen over). They marched South, they destroyed the imperial City and they ended the Roman Empire.

Is the West now also waiting for the Barbarians? Just as imperial Rome was?????

As i said, not everyone handles the energy of Uranus entering the Vedic Sign of Aries in the way Adolph Hitler did. And, indeed, when Uranus reached my natal Moon at 29 Pisces in 2016, I suddenly experienced revolution and emigrated!

Uranus will occupy the Gandanta degree at the start of Vedic Aries (24 Western Aries) four times:
2.1.18 (just short of the zero point)

But note that there’s a complication, to make the energy worse:

Rahu/North Node enters the Leo to Cancer gandanta in 2017. This Nodal Gandanta crossing occurs on 10th July 2017.
Rahu is caught up in the violent gandanta eclipses of 7th and 21st August 2017.

AND THIS GANDANTA CROSSING HAS VERY BIG COMPLICATIONS: There are eclipses there on 7th August 2017 and on 21st August 2017.

In the eclipse of 7th August 2017, Rahu is deep in the Gandanta at 0 Leo 32. In the eclipse on 21st August 2017, Rahu is still deep in the Gandanta at 29 degrees 48 Cancer. Sun and Moon are at 4 deg Leo and Mars is conjunct Rahu at 26 deg cancer

AND, as i said, THIS GANDANTA CROSSING HAS very BIG COMPLICATIONS FOR DONALD TRUMP AND THE USA: This is because this eclipse is visible for an absolutely record length of time across the USA and:

N.B. This eclipse Sun/Moon New Moon is also, by ‘coincidence’ right on top of Donald Trump’s Mars at 3 deg Leo and his Ascendant at 6 Leo.

What will happen to Donald Trump and the USA????

And this Gandanta Crossing and eclipse means that Kal Sarpa Yoga will re-arise. It was present during 2016 and into January 2017 togehter with two other terrible energies which saw British Brexit and the election of Donald Trump in USA. Kal Sarpa yoga means that all planets are caught up divisively to one side of the Nodal Axis. The first Kal Sarpa Yoga for 2017 began around 28.9.2016 with this first Kal Sarpa event ending 20.1.2017.

After the Gandanta crossing of the North Node, Rahu, I refer to above, Kal Sarpa Yoga re-arises a second time on 17.9.17 and holds in force until 8.1.18.
Kal Sarpa Yoga will continue on and off until 2019, as Jupiter and Saturn are on one side of the Rahu – Ketu axis, in fact it will continue until 14.12.2019 (date depending a little on definition). So, whenever the faster planets are also one side, Kal Sarpa Yoga will be created.
And by weird stroke of destiny, Donald trump has Kal Sarpa Yoga in his birth chart!!!!!!

Kal Sarpa Yoga creates divisiveness, paranoia, unrest, uncertainty and insecurity, and problems of management of the Mind.

Of course, it is so important to note that a more spiritually advanced individual can handle the Kal Sarpa energies, and so (as often is the case in Vedic Astrology) a curse is found to be a blessing!

I feel that these factors create a world scenario similar to Rome waiting for the Barbarians in 410 AD.

Gandanta special Footnote: HEALING AND EMPOWERMENT It is crucial that the foregoing observations about Gandanta placement of planets must not be used in a fated or formulaic way, such as harms so much Indian or western-received vedic astrology. All these instances are prompts for us to heal and empower ourselves, and this is the foundation of my astrology readings and courses. I work with my partner Maggie Pashley who is qualified in countless worldwide healing modalities.

Summer Solstice Celebration and Course – with the Irish Druid Path

For me, Summer Solstice celebration is delight in the light and heat of the Sun, and learning the lessons of that energy in our life.
We give thanks for the Sun.

Summer Solstice celebration is bonfire and shared eating round the fire. There’s leaping over the fire, especially by couples seeking the blessing and energy of fire.  Dance can embody the Fire element.
It is a time for pleasure in the foliage of nature and the growing harvest which will yet be ready to reap.
We give thanks for the herbs that are burgeoning, and for their medicinal powers.
This climax of the light is the turning of the tide, the energy of the Sun sows the very seeds of the dark times to come as from this day, the days get shorter and the nights get longer, until the Winter Solstice on January 21st.
This can feel a vibrant time when the veils between the worlds are thin, as at Beltain and Samhane, to which two festivals Midsummer is equidistant. Spirits and energies of place can usefully be attuned to. The time can be used for divination.

The child of promise that was born at the Winter Solstice with the new tiny Sun has grown to be the Mabon (Child of Promise) and is now the radiant solar young male at the height of his beauty.
At such a time, it is good to make commitment that we will act as guardians of the land and its sacredness.




A Wonderful Heart Wall Clearing Testimonial

Maggie received the following testimonial from a recent Heart Wall Clearing client.

Maggie writes:

‘She was a delight to work with as she was so open and willing and ready to put down the pain she had carried for so many years. EssentialIy a very kind loving lady whose abillity to let love in and trust life had been hampered by some very difficult life experiences. It was an honour to have been part of her healing. I have left the testimonial in full even though it is long as it is so genuine and heart-felt.

Here is the testimonial from Maggie Pashley’s Heart Wall Clearing Client:

​’I would like to Thank Maggie so much for the Heart wall clearing she did on me using the emotion code & the body code.
Maggie also used other healing modalities & tools to help me. She just used different healing tools that suited what I was feeling & reacting to in that moment.

I went searching for somebody to help me clear my heart wall after going through a lifetime of feeling numb & shut down inside. Just never feeling normal. Life just happened & I felt I had no control over it. I never felt joy in my heart & I used to think, whats wrong with me???? why do I feel so depressed & unhappy all the time?? But this went on for years & I never did anything about it. I was like so many people out there I just sat on the fence feeling helpless.

One day it just dawned on me, I’ve had enough of the pain I’m feeling… nobody is going to come & rescue me or wave a magic wand, I have to find someone to help me. I knew I was never going to heal on my own.
So I started my search…..After viewing numerous websites & You tube videos of different people who offered healings, Maggie stood out by far. (Watch her videos on youtube & you get a feel for the lovely person she is)
After our initial consultation which was so easy & quick (because I’m not the sort of person who can easily share the things I’ve been through in my life)

I have always been on guard & kept hurts & traumas buried. But from the word go….I felt relaxed carm & open to Maggie. I knew she was the one who I would like to work with. (Turned out…..as the healings progressed it was like having a conversation with an old friend) I had heard about the emotion code & body code so thought I will give it a go what do I have to lose. I was sick of feeling rooted to the spot & stuck in my life. Nothing ever seemed to change. Years of pain stayed glued inside me (thats the best way I can describe it).

I’m so so HAPPY I got the help I so desperately needed.
After just one session I could feel my heart chakra literally vibrating because it had opened up to the healing that quick.I was so surprised! I always thought, I’m the type of person who can’t be healed. Its never going to happen to people like me. WOW THE CHANGES I FELT FROM THE START– IT WAS LITERALLY LIKE MY HEART WALL WAS DISOLVING & FALLING DOWN  INSIDE-  as I let go of the hurts & traumas that had built up  over a life time. Everything around me started to come alive. I felt calmer, more relaxed. I felt more in-tune with life. My life started to feel better & daily situations seemed to flow like they had never done before.I was interacting with my family, strangers, people in the work place so much easier. I generally felt so much happier in myself. I’m actually feeling joy in my heart for the first time in years. I now don’t get caught up in the usual dramas & gossip that seem to be a part of most peoples daily lives. I just feel like a DIFFERENT person.It’s the best thing I have ever done for myself & I cant BELIEVE how EASY it was.

Maggie used to ring me at a time that suited me & all as I had to do was sit back & relax whilst maggie did all the clearings & it felt so effortless for ME.My only regret is that I didn’t do it years ago. I didn’t have to sit there & wallow in self pity & carry on acting out my life year in & year out as a victim.
I urge anyone out there who needs help, even if you think, oh I can clear it on my own. NO>> it just wont happen!
Problems, hurts from the past stay buried & affect your life daily & everyone you come in contact with. Day’s turn into years of your pain staying stuck & yet the help is out there. It can easily be released…..WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? Your family, friends, work colleagues all react to the PAIN you’re  carrying around inside, because you direct it on to them in your daily life.

Since Maggie has helped me I’m like an entirely different person. All my family are noticing the difference & I can see some of them thinking, how come she seems different? what has she done??? The people  who do ask- I tell them about the wonderful healings/releases Maggie has helped me with 🙂
I am so excited to what else is going to unfold in my life because I can feel the changes daily…more & more.
I am so grateful I gave myself this gift of healing it’s by far the best thing I have ever done.
My journey has only just begun. Every day I feel my heart OPENING more & more to life.
It’s priceless how Maggie has helped me.

My search was over when I found Maggie. She is a BLESSING & truly a lovely person as well as being highly professional.”I felt at ease from the word go” My advice to anyone is….No one is going to rescue you or wave a magic wand & it will all go away. You have to be willing & open to doing it for yourself! YOU HAVE TO ASK FOR THE HELP YOU NEED! At the end of the day the healings with Maggie are the cost of a few meals eating out.

How can you put a price on your well being.
Maggie has been a BLESSING in my life & I would highly recommend you work with Maggie. she will help you to be open to a much happier LIFE.
It’s out there waiting for you but YOU have to help yourself & make the changes INSIDE.
Thats why people like Maggie train for years & put the hard work in to help people like us to heal in minutes.
I cant thank Maggie enough
Love from JM in the UK 🙂 xx



Uranus in the Astrology Birth Chart

Michael ConneelyIn this post Michael Conneely discusses the role of Uranus in the Astrology Birth Chart

MEET URANUS I set great store by developing what in Tibetan Buddhism and tantric Hinduism is called ‘clear appearance’ of a god, and Uranus is a facet of the divine that plays an inescapable and totally crucial role in our life, and how exactly we will receive him into our destiny is mapped by the Sign he occupies in our birth chart, the House he occupies, and the energies he forms in aspect to the other planets. Developing this ‘clear appearance’ of the god energy, as well as developing ‘clear appearance’ of each planet as he manifest in our astrology chart and in our life and destiny is crucial and invaluable perception. My astrology always combines Western Astrology (for example psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology) with Vedic Astrology (which offers vast and peerless declaration of our incarnational life purpose and issues in its unfoldment. And as a matter of principle, all my astrology is geared to healing and empowerment in its orientation.
See my worldwide Astrology readings website: www.starwheelastrology.com and my worldwide astrology courses: www.mastervedicastrology.com www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com. And all my astrology is geared to healing and empowerment dimensions. If you wish you can consider the healing offered by the modalities offered worldwide by Maggie Pashley. See: www.maggiepashley.com. Here is a video presentation of Uranus and his energy, and below that a lengthy presentation of Uranus as face of god, planet and Awakener in your life:


Your Astrology and your Time of Birth: Rectification

If we do have an as near as possible birth chart, there is so much we can accurately see and state, so as to understand ourselves and so as to understand our lives, heal ourselves, heal our lives.

But before I go into the issue of correct time of birth, I want to mention another big question about the value of astrology: the other big question is what we do about this supreme astrological perception?

Well, perception itself is useful, it can encourage us to change and to mend our negative life scripts and karmas and our negative behavioural patterns.

But perception can get us so far.

The real value of astrology when it is expert, is to point us towards Healing and Empowerment, and so it can enable us to seek and achieve our healing, and it can point us in the right direction for healing and empowerment.

I work also with my partner Maggie Pashley, both of us working worldwide on-line and also in our healing Centre in the West of Ireland. There are so many sophisticated and powerful healing modalities that can heal the patterns and scripts highlighted by our astrology. See her website: www.maggiepashley.com.

So, this expert astrology can point us to understand the true nature of the spark we incarnated to achieve this time. It can define our assets and our strengths, and it can define those parts of ourselves that are enemies to this and can impeded us. So: yes, then it must be used as a pointer to and a basis for skilled healing.

But correct astrological declaration, with all its potential follow-on valuable uses, does depend on having a birth chart that as much as possible is based on a correct time of birth.

And so, this brings us to the issue of rectification of Time of Birth:

People ask about rectification and its value.

Well, the more our birth time is not correct, the more our astrology becomes incorrect in its potential to make supreme and accurate statement. In fact, if there is an error in time of birth, this means that the position of Ascendant or Rising Sign will be wrong in your Western Astrology birth chart by an amount of degrees dependent upon the number of minutes the tob is incorrect, and therefore the cusps or ‘start positions’ of each of the Houses will be wrong.

And in your Vedic Astrology birth chart, dependent on the amount of time of birth error, the definition of the first house may also be wrong and therefore the definition of the subsequent Houses. In Vedic Astrology, there are Varga or divisional charts in Vedic Astrology, each referring powerfully to specific areas of life, and these are sensitive to tob error, especially the higher divisional charts.
Also, the Moon can be in wrong position in the charts if there is any substantial error in tob, as the Moon moves quite rapidly through the heavens. And understanding the Moon is key to the nature of our consciousness and its management, and to our Mother issues.
Also the start and end dates of your Vedic predictive periods (dasas) will begin to be incorrect if there is error in tob.

So, definitely, it is best to have accurate time of birth:

Let me now give four examples of time of birth issues in more detail:

  1. Your Ascendant or rising Sign:

For example, the Ascendant or ‘rising sign’ which is the basis of defining our First House (and therefore all the subsequent of the 12 Houses) will be in the incorrect position. The twelve Houses make declaration about what will happen in each defined areas of our life. If the Houses are defined wrongly, then the declaration of the affairs of life of each House will be wrong. The more the time of birth error, the greater the error in defining the Ascendant and the Houses, and thus the greater the error in defining the life. In Vedic astrology, the definition of our first House is of course so important as it sets the keynote for our bodily features and the strengths and issues with which we will project into the world. The Ruling Planet of the first House assumes such a special importance for us to define its special nature and characteristics.

  1. Your Predictive Age Points:

I use predictive Age Points in my psychodynamic Western Astrology: an individuation Age Point which charts the unfoldment of our understanding of our psychology and our psychological subpersonalities, and our unfolding ability to manage and heal these, and also a Nodal Age Point which depicts the whispering to us from our soul from the astral at each point in our life. If the time of birth is wrong, then the dates of the ‘hits’ of these two age points, and the nature of their messages will be incorrectly defined.

  1. Your Vedic Astrology Divisional or Varga Charts:Vedic Astrology uses Divisional Charts’ or ‘Varga Charts’ in addition to the birth chart (called the Rashi Chart). Each Varga Chart is a harmonic chart derived from the birth chart. For example, the Navamsha or 9th Harmonic chart makes invaluable statement about our marriage issues and the messages our soul will send to us in this life as our life unfolds. One example of the use of the Navamsha is a woman who has a bad Jupiter in her birth chart indicating that she will attract a bad husband, but she may have a wonderful Jupiter on her Navamsha chart indicating the potential to attract a very good husband, for example when her Jupiter is activated by the wonderful Dashas, the wonderful Predictive Periods of Vedic Astrology.
  2. Your Incarnational Life Purpose:
    Vedic Astrology has a most wonderful system for defining Incarnational Life Purpose based on the position of the Nodes of the Moon in the birth Chart, as analysed by Sign, House and Aspect, and also as analysed by their position in the wonderful Nakshatras: the 27-sign lunar Zodiac of Vedic astrology. If your time of birth is wrong, you could well make a statement that the Nodes of the Moon are in the wrong House. The definition of the position of planets can get very exact in Vedic Astrology, for example because the 12 Signs are divided into Navamshas and other divisional charts, each with a subtly different nature, and for example because the Lunar Signs, the Nakshatras are divided into Padas (or quarters) each with a subtly different nature within the Nakshatra or lunar sign). If you use an incorrect time of birth, you will state that the planets are in the wrong divisions of these powerful declarative divisions of each sign.

So, for these reasons, you can see that it can be a good idea to have your time of birth rectified when you have an astrology reading or if you embark on an astrology course.


So, this brings us to the question of ‘How is my time of Birth Rectified?

I use two methods:

A. Kinesiology:
A quick way is to tap into our intuitive knowing and use ‘muscle testing’ or ‘kinesiology’ and I have definitely found over the years occasions when this has been subsequently verified, either because the tob has subsequently been discovered, or because the muscle-tested tob has been born out in that it generates correctly timed predictions.

B. Formal Rectification:
The formal method of rectification is two-fold:
a) You list a number of different big life events and then the astrologer to erects different charts for different tobs and sees which chart predicts the events at the correct time that they actually happened.
b) The Astrologer looks at the Houses created by different tob, and says what each different tob declares about the affairs of that house, and then you to say which is the most accurate. For example, if two tobs under study offered different definition of 4th House = Mother, then one could say that ‘time A’ declares that the native will have a very difficult mother, but that ‘time B’ declares that the native will have a very good mother, and so the astrologer can say from this which which is the more correct birth time.

Formal rectification is not easy and it does take time. You would need to send me a list of say seven to ten big life events. I would try out different tob charts, and ask you questions.


Well, I think you will agree with me that a rectified time of birth is worth having, because otherwise we cannot be sure of being able to tap into the invaluable perceptions offered by a correct and expertly interpreted birth chart, nor can we benefit from correctly-based predictive astrology. And if our astrology is incomplete or inaccurate it can’t be such a powerful gateway to its potential for invaluable Perception, and we won’t have such clarity for seeing how we can heal or empower ourselves and thus create a purposeful, happy, healed and powerful life.

So, may I suggest  that you could go through the rectification exercise with me so as to achieve the wonderful asset of having as correct as possible la birth time. This is of great value in itself: now – and at so many times in our life.

But there is another way you might like to benefit from having a rectification, and that is to study my Vedic Astrology Course. I call my course: Master Vedic Astrology. Its website is www.mastervedicastrology.com it’s teaching approach is very clear. In an expert way, we go from one planet to another, and so we study first the sun, then the Moon, and so on down the list of the planets. In-between the planet studies, you study astrological interpretation techniques. Note that your planet studies and your techniques studies are always with reference to two charts: yours and mine. This way we keep the communication caring and authentic. In addition, you are welcome to include Western Astrology Crossover and I recommend this, either in small measure or more fully. In addition, you are welcome the include the Visionary Astrology techniques I describe above. In addition, of course, all the declaration is used not to create inert formula, but to generate within us perception that can lead to our transformation, and to link us to healing and empowerment awareness and techniques that we feel we may need or benefit form so as to make the maximum success and happiness of our lives.

I also teach a Western Astrology Course which majors in psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology, and basically follows the same caourse format and principles as my Master Vedic Astrology Course.

So, you could either enrol just for me to work with you to complete a Rectification Exercise as described above which would be invaluable and fascinating and would leave you with all the benefits of a rectified birth chart. This costs £100 (GB Pounds) and you can email me to arrange this.

OR as a special offer, you could enrol on my Master Vedic Astrology Course or my Enlightened Astrology Course, in which case I could include in the course the Rectification Exercise at half price.

So, all blessings to you and I look forward to hearing from you
