New Moon Eclipse 13th September 2015 at 20 Virgo:
This New Moon is an Eclipse, and Eclipses un-dam dammed up energies. It all depends on whether the Sun, Moon or Ascendant of the Eclipse falls on a sensitive area of your birth chart or not. On the Earth plane, eclipses are associated with earthquakes and tsunamis. For the ancients, eclipses were often about the Fall of Kings and personal disasters or breakthroughs. So if a sensitive part of your birth chart is activated by this eclipse, changes will come into your life that are fated and destined. Your question will then be: ‘how can I handle this?’

Western astrology focuses on our psychological dimensions so key areas with the eclipse being in Virgo will be in the area of organisation and practicalities.

Jupiter is opposition Neptune at this time so this could either be very imaginative – or illusory!!!

And Mercury is square Pluto which can support very investigative thought.
Venus and Mars are close at around the time of this eclipse, and actually Venus doesn’t particuallrly like Mars: Vensu prefers softer planets, so there could be steamy driven emotions or rows all around this time.
Very importantly, the Eclipse of 13th September is exactly opposition Chiron at 20 Pisces. If this opposition is on top of a sensitive areas of your birth chart, you could well have some big realisation or opening for change of a healing nature, if you are open to it.

Chart Full Moon 28th Sep

Full Moon Eclipse 28th Sep 2015 at 02.51 in Aries

At the psychological level, all the Aries themes like passion, drive, leadership, confidence, and instinct will be heightened. Exercise awareness and don’t just follow all your impulses and desires. Avoid bad temper. Saturn is square Mars at the time of this eclipse which can either mean very systematic hard work and application or a problem like pitting yourself against blocks.


Mercury is Retrograde from 17th September to 10th October

Mercury is the planet that rules our communication, travels, our short journeys, messages across communication devices, IT procedures and financial management. In a Mercury retrograde period you can expect delays on all of these matters, and a few travel or road related hiccups as well. Plan ahead by having backups in all major technology devices, double and triple check your travel arrangements, and hand deliver important documents or pay extra to have them securely expedited. Cultivate the best quality in communication with everyone.

Venus is Retrograde all September 2015

Basically, from end July to early September, we are called to look at our love relationships and use this perception to try to reduce any problems we are causing or that may exist in the relationship, and to take steps of healing to change and improve our love relationships.

Sun enters Libra on September 24th. Libra loves beauty, needs relationship but can lose themselves in it, impartial, hates anger but occasionally has rages, romantic, fickle, workaholic, extravagant and materialistic. While the Sun is still in the earlier half of Libra, this energy is actually still quite a bit Virgoan, and can be rather cut off from instincts, but everything changes as the Sun transts through the second half of Libra, and things become much more martial and temperamental as will as the ‘nicey nicey’ Libran style!

Mars enters Virgo on September 26th. Mars and Jupiter together in Virgo will be quite a powerful energy which you could use for things like organisation and healing.

Saturn enters Sagittarius on September 18th. In terms of the psychological level of menaing offered by Western Astrology, this will be ‘an energy for disciplined growth’. Finding a balance between being too lax and too controlled, taking on the responsibility of living according to our personal truths and principles, and to be loyal to these. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those beliefs and principles that don’t accurately reflect our authentic selves. We may feel it is taking such a long time to gain the knowledge, wisdom, and life experience or meaning that we seek. We must not try to over-control this experience! Ultimately it is only ourselves who we can control.

Sagittarius’ over-expansiveness, excessiveness and irresponsibility will not work for us. They will come under Saturn’s Law of Consequence. You may feel caged, trapped, or limited, but  Saturn in Sagittarius  teaches us that there is freedom and liberation in abiding by necessary structure and rules, and in some level of self-denial and self-discipline.

Let go of lost causes. Your faith may be tested. Issues of discipline and structure in teachings/religion, and freedom of thought will figure strongly during this transit.

This can be a time for updating skills and knowledge or formalizing learning, getting a degree or other credentials.

Freedom is not about escaping our responsibilities nor is it about breaking all the rules.

We need to accept that some options may be limited in order to enjoy a simpler, more fulfilling life.

This is the second webinar in a wonderful and empowering series.
Michael Conneely shows how to analyse the Vedic Astrology Birth Chart.

Michael is analysing the charts of members of a study group within the Master Vedic Astrology Course. This is part 2 in the series: Lisa’s chart

Two important principles of the Master Vedic Astrology Course demonstrated here are as follows:

* The value of including crossover into Western psychodynamic astrology


Applied astrology involves using the wonderful perception of Vedic and also western psychodynamic astrology, as a gateway to stabilising the mind, to healing and empowerment: applying a Healing Modality.

In this case EFT is used (Emotional Freedom Technique) with Maggie Pashley.

N.B. There is a brief technical glitch around the fifty minute point, but please ignore this and persist with watching to see the wonderful healing at the end. The YouTube video link is:

Here is Lisa’s comment on the reading:

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

Love Astrology : The Balance of Assertiveness in a Relationship

Love Astrology : The Balance of Assertiveness in a Relationship

love astrology 13Contact Michael Conneely at for a skilled and invaluable relationships compatibility reading.

My readings always combine both western with Vedic Astrology. They are always geared to the highest insights and also to healing and empowerment. They can be linked to healing modalities.

Vedic Astrology has a quite sure and ancient system of compatibility assessment called the Ashta Kuta system. This is never to be used in a simplistic legalistic way, of course, and I provide a full and very highly qualified analysis and assistance.

And a most important principle in my compatibility readings is one of the many features of the Ashta Kutas system, namely Assertive Pressure.

Vedic Astrology DOES actually provide an invaluable measure of the couple’s relative assertiveness – and ideally it should be balanced.

This very special feature of Vedic Love Astrology is called Kuja Dosha or Manglik.

Years ago I did a blog post on Sylvia Plath’s relationship with Ted Hughes, and it emerged that he was five times more assertive than her – and sadly she put her head in a gas oven!

The greatest disruption to marital harmony is quarrelling. So often this comes from the Mars balance or imbalance between the two people in the relationship.

As long as the pressure is equalized the relationship can be maintained and can be constructive.

If, however, Mars assertiveness is less in one person’s horoscope than the others, then the person with less Mars assertiveness gets abused and eventually has their self-esteem or self-worth trashed and the relationship will not be constructive. Their timidity, lack of aggressiveness, etc. can actually bring out the worst in their partner. The important thing is that the pressure of Mars assertiveness is balanced.

I look forward to working with you. Contact me for a relationships compatibility reading. See the range of linked healing modalities we offer.

Time Zones:
To adjust the times for your timezone, add or subtract the number of hours your timezone is from 0 UT.
So if you live in the western hemisphere (e.g. Americas) you would subtract the number of hours of your time zone difference from London UK from the time shown on the table.
If you live  the eastern hemisphere (e.g. Australia), add the number hours of the time difference to the time shown in the table.

Rahu – Moon dasa is tough!

Rahu – Moon dasa is tough!

Ketu, the South Node of the Moon

Ketu, the South Node of the Moon

My Rahu – Moon – Ketu Dasa (Vedic Predictive Period) was such catastrophic and difficult enlightenment for me, essentially feeling my adoptive mother betrayed me, and realising my shreds of (adoptive) family are malign or harmful, and facing the question what do you do about this?

I am now in the next Dasa: Rahu-Moon-Venus. Could I be forgiven for saying that I will not be sad when Rahu – Moon ends on 31st October????

My partner, Maggie’s Rahu – Moon Dasa ends 3.1.2016.

Her Rahu – Moon – Ketu Dasa is 6/8 to 7/9

She can do it!!!!

The planetary energies arriving to us are ever-changing. Sun, Moon, Mars and Mercury moved into Punarvasu nakshatra yesterday.

I imagine the dust will settle and we’ll start to move from shock, intensity overwhelm, into deeper understanding and release over the coming days.

With the Perception of Vedic Astrology and also mantra and healing techniques, the resources are there. We have some tools for navigating our challenges.

Yes to movement and growth!

So much of navigating our power (or our karmas for that matter) comes down to awareness and choice. That’s the brilliance of having Vedic Astrology, but also being willing to face dark and light as though they are both valuable and necessary.

Our willingness to face fear will prove to be a strengthening of our inner power.

Healing techniques and vision work all help us be courageous and walk the edge- trusting we will come through it with great wisdom.

Underneath anger is great passion and passion is power – power to become our essence.

We need to regularly pause to check out and be attentive to our emotional body. Take time to check out our inner state, then check: is our outer persona aligned to that???

Trust yourself. Trust yourself to make choices and then to redirect and make a different choice if necessary. That’s your consciousness and power in action. That’s how we make change.
