How will these planetary energies affect you? Well, of course, it all depends if any of the planets transiting in the heavens in October form an aspect to any of the planets in your birth chart. It all depends which of the Houses of your birth chart these planets in the heavens are transiting through in October.

Or you can follow one of my astrology courses which are always very caring with individual and group tuition, regular webinars and links to healing modalities, embodiment and empowerment techniques: or

Venus, Jupiter and Mars: The biggest thing to note from these October 2015 charts, is that Venus, Jupiter and Mars all start the month of October pretty close and they get closer (all three are within six degrees of each other in Virgo by the end of the month) and the truth is that this BIG energy actually has the potential to create some pretty stormy sexual and emotional relationships, not at all gentle, loving ones, so it is so helpful to be advised of this and if possible be aware. And this stellium receives some difficult aspects from Uranus, Chiron and Saturn as well – see below! Hold on to your hat if someone you love has major planets in Virgo!!!

Saturn in Sagittarius: Saturn is transiting through the sign of Sagittarius from December 23rd 2014 to June 14th 2015; and then returns to Sagittarius to complete its transit of Sagittarius from September 17th 2015 to December 20th 2017.
Saturn is speeding up between 1 to 4 deg Sagittarius from his Station in early August. I feel things were very screwed down (it felt like wading through concrete while Saturn was retrograde then stationary, but now the weight should be easing off – except if you have planets in early Sagittarius (or opposite in early Gemini), in which case you will still feel his weight and his call to duty.
This Saturn transit through Sagittarius may well be experienced as a time to evolve your beliefs and discipline your mind, experiencing reality checks and the call to structure and discipline in the area of beliefs and higher study.
The Saturn to Sun transit is hard. If you are on course, you will be rewarded with golden reaping. But if you are off course for your dharma, your life path, then you will experience some sort of downfall and not the best health.
If your Moon is in late Scorpio, Sagittarius or early Capricorn, then you will experience the hard transit of Saturn over natal Moon which in Vedic Astrology is called Sade Sate and lasts seven and a half years, and is marked often by some sort of separation, big move or even a death in your circle. The whole experience is a case of being cut off from God’s grace so that we see the limitations of our own character and, ideally, start to leave behind what must be left behind, change and grow.
Interestingly, Saturn in the heavens is transiting across my natal Mars at the same time as transiting Mars transits over my natal Saturn: double whammy: I expect it to bring a death and rebirth energy.

Saturn is square Mars and Venus: Saturn in early Sagittarius is square Mars in the heavens (at the end of Virgo) and Venus (in early Leo) from the start of the month. The Saturn-Venus square becomes exact by 10th October: this aspect can bring a lot of tension in love or feelings of not having been given value if your natal planets are caught up in this square.

Uranus square Pluto: Uranus in Aries is square Pluto in Capricorn all month. This is the seventh and final formation of this square aspect. Old paradigms are crumbling; new paradigms are forming. With Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, it is these people that are affected most, also Libra and Cancer, of course. Uranus can shake you awake. Pluto can make you plumb the depths and discover buried strengths and healing there. You may like to log what this transit means in your life and spiritual development by noting what you felt and what happened during the seven dates when it was most exact:
June 6 – July 9, 2012
September 18 – October 1, 2012
May 15 – Jun 1, 2013
October 17 – November 15, 2013
April 12 – 29, 2014
November 26 – December 27, 2014
March 11 – 28, 2015

Uranus opposition Sun: The Sun moves into closer and closer opposition to Uranus in the heaven as October progresses. Uranus is at 18 Aries in October. Sun is at 12 Libra by October 5th. But the opposition is exact when Sun reaches 18 deg Libra by 11th October, and after that it diminishes, ceasing to be in orb by 18th October. Uranus has been moving through Aries bringing tension and revolutionary change. The impact of a Uranus to Moon or Sun or …. Well any planet in Aries, really, cannot be underestimated.

The Nodes of the Moon: As well as Uranus, The South Node of the Moon has also been in Aries for about eighteen months, and this transit has brought many even major karmic developments to many people with planets in Aries, including creating a death gestalt for frail or vulnerable people with natal Moon or Sun in Aries, but South Node enters Pisces now. And therefore North Node (always opposite) enters Virgo. The Nodes of the Moon deliver our destiny.

Neptune is Opposition Jupiter, Mars and Venus: Neptune retrograde at 7 deg Pisces is opposition Jupiter and Mars in Virgo. This opposition gets closer and closer by October 5th and by October 10th, and Neptune is actually opposition Venus as well, as the three get closer and closer as the month progresses. But this Neptune opposition aspect has dissolved by October 20th.
The question is whether people will experience the Neptune in Pisces transit negatively as alcohol, denial, delusion or positively as the development of guiding vision, imagining of possibilities and development of intuition. Obviously people with major planets in Pisces or Virgo in their birth charts are affected most.
Neptune entered Pisces April 4, 2011, stayed for a few months, then turned retrograde on June 2, 2011 and returned to Aquarius August 11, 2011.  Neptune then went direct on November 9, 2011 at 28° Aquarius and returned to Pisces February 4, 2012.  Neptune will remain in Pisces until April 1, 2025. It takes Neptune 14 yrs. to transit through a sign.

Chiron is opposition Jupiter (then Mars and Venus as well): In fact Jupiter is moving into receiving an opposition aspect from Chiron (in Pisces), as well as from Neptune, from October 10th. And by October 15th, Jupiter, Mars and Venus have all moved into receiving an opposition aspect from Chiron. This opposition from Chiron gets stronger and stronger by 25th October and the end of the month, too.
Chiron transited into Pisces on April 20, 2010. He retrograded back into Aquarius from July 20th to February 8th 2011 then re-entered Pisces where essentially he will remain until February 2019 (except for April to September 2018 when he will briefly enter Aries).
Chiron is the wounded healer and his transits have a very powerful effect on the house in our birth chart he transits through or on the planet in our birth chart that he aspect. Chiron brings healing crises.
Those born between approx 1960 and 1969 will go through their Chiron Return between 2010 and 2019. The Chiron Return is a major experience and represents being offered the chance for healing of our deepest existential wound.

Grand Trine: October ends with a lovely Grand Trine: Sun, Moon and Neptune, all at 120 deg to each other in the water signs of Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces.

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

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

This reading predicts a period of artistic success and standing in the world for Louise. Her chart is difficult because Sun is most deeply Debilitated and Mars is her Bhadak planet.

Michael Conneely’s Master Vedic Astrology course focuses on in-depth study of two charts: Michael’s and the students, and always offers crossover into western astrology to the extent that the student desires, and so we examine ‘Nature v Nurture issues, Chart aspect shapes and above all the implications of Louise’s Sun conjunct Pluto.

Master Vedic Astrology always offers gateways: gateways to use the superb perception created by Vedic and western astrology as an opportunity for healing and empowerment: becoming the essence of who you were born to be, and so Maggie Pashley demonstrates here the use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to start to create illumination as to the nature of the debilitation of the Sun and the Mars Bhadaka – and also the way out!

Child Astrology Readings with Michael Conneely

Child Astrology Readings with Michael Conneely

child astrology 2To understand your child’s life, you could not do better than book a Child Astrology Reading from me:


This is because, exceptionally, I combine expert Western astrology with Vedic Astrology. And more than that, my readings are always linked to healing and empowerment techniques such as the many healing modalities you can see on the relevant website page, art therapy and also embodiment techniques.

My child astrology reading will so strongly support your understanding of your child. It will so strongly promote your best parenting of your child. This applies to children of all ages.


Within western child astrology, my specialisms are psychodynamic astrology and evolutionary astrology

Sub Personalities:

Psychodynamic astrology provides the most accurate definition of the different parts of your child’s psychology. It accurately identifies ‘sub-personalities’ your child has. One of the key methods I use to identify your child’s psychology is analysis of the chart aspect shapes in your child’s chart. Chart aspect shapes are a powerful guide to your child’s deepest psychological motivations. They identify what parts of your child’s personality work easily together, and which parts are so different that it is hard to reconcile one with the other.

In particular, chart aspect shapes analysis is excellent for identifying which parts of us are split off: what parts actually go so far as to act as ‘unaspected sub-personalities. The need is for all of us to know even the split-off parts of ourselves, so that we will not be driven by unconscious denied parts, so that we will not swing wildly from one persona to another, bewildering ourselves and those around us.

This process of unifying our Self is called ‘individuation’ the principle method used in achieving individuation is called ‘psychosynthesis’. My reading for your child will make this clear.

Having an unaspected sub-personality means that sometimes your child may come over over-powerfully with that energy to other people, and yet have no real idea of how powerfully he or she is actually coming across with those characteristics.

It also means that that energy-principle is unconnected to the rest of your child. It could be the tail that wags the dog. It could take over his or her life. At other times your child will be unable to access and connect to its energy at all.

We all need to recognise and understand our unaspected sub-personalities. This can be done through the method of role-play psychosynthesis. It is linked to the principle of ‘Individuation’ in the psychology of Asaglione, which I use for these readings.

Nature versus Nurture:

Another invaluable technique I use to read your child’s destiny and potential is analysis of the issue of ‘Nature versus Nurture’ in his or her life.

Planets in signs are our inherited nature. Planets in houses are our nurture or upbringing. This is the ‘nature versus nurture’ debate. The Question is: Who are we: our nature or our nurture? It is so helpful to have this studied and practically interpreted.

Evolutionary Astrology:

Evolutionary Astrology is the study of incarnational life purpose, of past life scripts and how they manifest now in this life. It is especially studied in relation to the position of the Node of the Moon in your child’s birth chart. I also include an analysis of the Personal Rays manifestation in your child’s life drawing on the system Alice Bailey developed from the heritage of Alexandrian Egypt.


Vedic Astrology is the ancient astrology of India. It is unbelievably sure, powerful and accurately declarative.

Vedic Astrology has its own assessment of incarnational life purpose, that is not so psychological as that provided within evolutionary western astrology. It too is based on analysis of the Nodes of the Moon in the birth chart, but it consists more of a statement of material and spiritual gifts, challenges and growth steps your child incarnated to make in this life.

Vedic Astrology has such a sure analysis as to how the affairs of each facet of life will manifest in your child’s life.

Let me show you the simple example of the Vedic House system. Put very simply indeed, the House system is as follows. I show this simply to communicate the comprehensiveness and concrete sureness of Vedic astrology:

1st House shows the head – ego – one’s self, body, general prosperity, health and wellbeing, basic self-expression, physical constitution, personality.
2nd House
shows early childhood experiences, wealth,  gathering / holding resources, livelihood, speech, youth, financial success (or not) through career / labor. Show our tastes, food, art / poetry / capacity to communicate, how we operate and express. Right eye. Eyesight generally.
3rd House shows issues of curiosity, courage, ability to overcome obstacles, power, brother, friends, motivation, interest basic life energy, impulses and intention that drives us. Will ambition, passion, zeal, rashness impulsiveness main interests, sport, hobbies
4th House shows Mother and heredity issues and state of consciousness arising therefrom: emotion, happiness, property, mind, upbringing, education, refinement, masses, popularity, land acquisition, vehicles, what is internal, capacity to Relax, it’s afflictions are hard to overcome, most sensitive
5th House shows creative intelligence, education, speculation, romance, children, past life credit, games, spiritual practices. Creativity in general – giving birth to our ideas – children show our primal creative urge
6th House shows enemies, debts, health and disease, work and service, foreigners, pets, enemies, effort, resistance to illness, immune system. Our capacity to do hard labor – overcome physical obstacles / enemies.
7th House is the House of Long term romantic relationships, general relations with others, business associates. Being opposite the ascendant, it shows that to which we are most drawn and most challenged to learn.
8th House shows issues of sex, death, the occult, dark / hidden side of life, longevity, research, destruction / regeneration of any sort. Through the 8th house we confront our mortality. It can determine the ultimate meaning of our lives.
9th House reveals our religious, philosophical or ethical principles, grace, dharma (life purpose). Shows our highest principles operating in the world, shaping our life events, or their inability to do so. The luckiest house.
10th House is the House of Career: our public status, material achievement, skill, success, career, our effect on the world. Politics. Strong planets here override even the ascendant for importance.
11th House shows how gains will manifest in our life: aspirations and goals, financial and material gains, friendship, impulse, abundance and excess. Ability to project our intelligence on the world. Where we expand. Planets here show their expansive nature.
12th House shows our subconscious, hidden nature, loss, liberation, decrease, wastage of energy. Foreign journeys. Connection to spiritual and other institutions. It shows the individual negated by adversity into sorrow or negated by inner peace to enlightenment. Left eye.

The Vedic Planets:

Study of your child’s planets in his or her Vedic birth chart gives the most profound guidance. For example, total consciousness is assessed by considering the following three planets: Sun as Atma (soul), the Moon as Manas (Mind) and Mercury as Buddhi (intellect).
Every planet is assessed both for mundane manifestation and as a key to your child’s best Dharma: his or her spiritual path.

The Nakshatras, the Vedic Lunar Zodiac: Additionally, Vedic astrology also employs an even more ancient zodiac than the 12 sun-signs: this is the immeasurably powerful lunar zodiac of 27 signs. It depicts our realities in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful. These 27 lunar signs are called ‘Nakshatras’.

The positions of the lunar signs were more easily visible to ancient astrologers because they are quite simply the position of the Moon in the heavens on each of the 27 days the Moon takes to orbit the Earth. Because the lunar signs are so ancient, they are powerful and magical and pre-rational, and each of them has a ‘power animal’ that can be used for many purposes of understanding, including the identification of the best marriage partner for your child. This system is immensely sophisticated in the Nakshatra interpretive techniques it uses such as Navatara, Nara chakra (health statement) and Nadi (special) Nakshatras. Its vast and sure systems of sign rulerships and qualities will throw immense meaning onto your understanding of your child’s life.

Myriad Special features: Vedic Astrology has a legion of special features that Western astrology does not know of. Just to name a very, very few these include Gandanta (the identification of degrees that are especially dangerous is we have a planet fall within them in our birth chart), Manasa (the identification of our root state of consciousness), Dashas (a most accurate system of Predictive periods that unfold inexorably from the moment of our birth), Karakas (the way in which each planet operates as a special indicator, especially the Atmakaraka or ‘soul indicator’ within our life). The list is endless and it is so invaluable to have this interpretation.

How to Book a reading: You can enroll using the instructions given on the Home Page. Please read the guidelines how best to book a reading.

See also the Healing Modalities page on this website. My astrology readings are always extensive and profound, but they always include Applied Astrology: how to use these wonderful and special insights in a way that not only identifies issues but one that also allows for any healing that might be needed. My readings are always done in a way that offers concrete strategies for empowerment as well.




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

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

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

This August Astrology combines both western and Vedic Astrology. I start with Vedic Astrology.
You can see my western astrology forecast following on from this, below.

N.B. You can see the charts for the planet positions and the ephemeris and details of Moon phases in both western and Vedic Astrology on my Master Vedic Astrology courses website: There’s charts and ephemeris for every month.

So first of all, here is news about how Vedic Astrology says the planets will affect your life:


For me the biggest development to be aware of is that Saturn has ended his long Retrograde motion in the heavens which started March 15th 2015. He is virtually stationary all August and then he will very slowly start to gather forward speed.

How will this manifest in your life now? Well, as a general guide, Saturn going direct releases pent up energy. It clears and activates situations that have been blocked up and have been ‘on hold’. Delays and holdups are challenged. Major crises can erupt. Remember, Saturn is a powerful malefic. He can bring harsh results, and needs to be met with patience, structure and discipline. Lay down new structures. Prune where necessary.

As a useful guide to how to you might work out the lessons of Lord Shani in your life this month, I’m sharing here how this has manifested in my life now:
Well, a sick, tyrannical adoptive sibling died in his alcohol institution (albeit spraying out final harm to others) and my partner experienced a similar death dimension in a difficult relationship issue that is clearly karmic. In other words, here is Saturn as Lord of Death, Lord of Karma, Lord of Fated Endings.

And in both cases there were issues thrown up for us to deal with, as we are both people with Debilitated or ‘weak’ Libra Suns, of not acting as ‘patsy’ to people who are tyrants and ranters, and there has been a big realisation of the importance of not giving one’s power and essence away in groups, nor in family settings. These, together with health issues are some of the ways how Debilitated Sun can so often manifest. This was Saturn’s Harvest now for us personally as He came to be stationary.

Another manifestation of Stationary/slow Saturn is that I completed Part 1 of the novel I am writing and I was motivated to make a first draft of the synopsis and cover blurb and to clearly write out the thematic construct underlying the novel. This ties in of course with Venus being Retrograde now (see below). My novel will be called The Morrigan and The Dagda and is about the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Irish, their presence in the Iron Age, their relevance now. To see all about my other novels, visit:

The Vedic Sign of Leo is Especially Activated:
Saturn is transiting through the Vedic Sign of Scorpio at this time, indeed until late 2017. And so Saturn is sending a long-term10th House aspect to Vedic Leo.

Now the important thing about the Vedic sign of Leo at the moment, is that Jupiter is transiting it, indeed until August 2016. Jupiter stats off the month conjunct Venus in Leo!
Also Venus is transiting Vedic Leo retrograde now, and until August 13th (the day before the Cancer New Moon), and also Sun is in Vedic Cancer – as you can see from the ephemeris which (as for every month) is on the web page.

Retrograde Venus makes us focus better and harder on love issues – Self Love is a crucial issue! And retrograde Venus can prompt us to finish unfinished creative projects (it has had these effects on me).

Moreover Mercury enters the Vedic sign of Leo on August 4th.

So here we have these three planets transiting the  Vedic sign of Leo, where the sign and the planets transiting within it are all are affected by the aspect Saturn casts from Vedic Scorpio.

Consider: which House in your Vedic birth chart is the sign Leo. In my Vedic birth Chart, Leo is the 2nd House whose affairs include money. So the guidance for me is that I should experience financial improvement but this it will depend on Saturn’s qualities of patience, diligence and structure.

Note that generally speaking Jupiter is transiting square Saturn in the heavens. The exact dates of Jupiter square Saturn are:
August 3rd 2015, 10.36 GMT
March 23rd 2016,  10.15 GMT
May 26th 2016, 12.27 GMT


And of course not that Mars, as the Ruler of Scorpio, is debilitated all this month as he is transiting in Cancer.

So this means that transiting Saturn is not getting as much support as one would normally expect.

Add to this that Cancer is my ascendant sign, so I will be helped to express myself more strongly (albeit potentially too irritatedly!!!)

Mars in Cancer prompts the release of pent-up anger.

Mars and Venus are close to each other at the end of August, so beware over-turbulent issues of consciousness around love. The two do not get on that well with each other!


The New Moon is in emotional Cancer on August 14, so a new Moon cycle starts, and this watershed is amplified in that Sun changes sign and enters Leo on August 17 – see the ephemeris for August and all months on my Master Vedic Astrology website.
The Full Moon is in Aquarius on August 29. It is in Shatabhishak Nakshatra which is ruled by Rahu (North Node).

In my personal case, Shatabishak is my ‘Manasa Nakshatra’ the 25th Nakshatra from my Natal Moon in Revati (Gandanta at 29 deg at the end of Pisces)

Our Manasa Nakshatra defines our root state of consciousness in our life. It was really valuable for me to study the qualities of Shatabishak as this helped me define and understand my mind. Having Full Moon here should be very mentally liberating and renewing.

Western Astrology Forecast for August 2015 – From Michael Conneely

This report highlights the energies defined within western astrology that we will all feel during August. And remember, how you personally will experience these energies will partly depend where the August planets fall in relation to your personal birth chart. It’s different for every person. And the point is: Astrology can bring good perception. And perception is valuable.

But you also need to APPLY this perception. You need to work with it. If necessary you can use transformation and embodiment and use healing methods to grow and transform.

This is actually the purpose of the energies coming to us from the planets: they are giving us a call to heal and grow and become the best self we were born to become!
You can ask me for an in-depth astrology reading or join one of my courses. And please see my website for a list of powerful linked healing modalities:

Here are the Moon Phases in August:

New Moon            14.8.2015    14.54  at  21 Leo 31
Full Moon             29.8.2015   18.35  at    6 Pisces 07.

Here are the Planets’ Movements through August:

Sun              moves from 8 Leo to 8 Virgo.

Mercury      moves from 17 Leo, through Virgo, to 5 Libra.

Venus          moves from 29 Leo to 14 Leo: Retrograde.

Mars            moves from 24 Cancer to 14 Leo.

Jupiter         moves from 27 Leo to 4 Virgo.

Saturn          stays at 28 Scorpio all month. Starts August Retrograde but is Direct from 3rd Aug.

Uranus         moves from 20 Aries to 19 Aries: Retrograde.

Neptune       moves from 9 Pisces to 8 Pisces: Retrograde.

Pluto             stays at 13 Capricorn all month: Retrograde.
North Node moves from 3 Leo to 2 Leo.

Chiron          moves from 21 Pisces to 20 Pisces: Retrograde.

Saturn on station: A big feature is that the planet Saturn is practically stationary in the heavens all month at 28 deg Scorpio. Saturn on station will really slow everything down. We will be forced to confront and deal with issues. Saturn is inescapable and he calls for discipline and patience. This will affect everyone, but especially Scorpios and Taureans. Saturn calls us to respect limits and duties and act patiently. His energy can be grim or remorseless. Many people will feel very tense. Deaths are more likely. Saturn is Lord of Karma. It is Saturn’s job to build and manifest, and to hold the integrity of our life-structures on various levels. But we so often try to use Saturn’s energies is to resist change – even grimly!

How to deal with Saturn retrograde or stationary? It is a good idea to attune to what you are really feeling and experiencing and spend some time and effort to identify and review. You can draw what you feel. You can try embodying it. You can use healing modalities to heal what is coming up.

It is a good idea to review areas of blocks, resistance, doubt or hesitancy in your life. Look at your unconscious beliefs. Identify your limiting scripts. Make a vision statement. Draw up a statement of intent. Deal with fear, limitation or denial.  Identify how you oppress yourself with false beliefs? This exercise will actually yield renewed strength, more energy and new direction!

Venus and Mars conjunct: Another big feature is that Retrograde Venus and forward-moving Mars move closer and closer all through month, ending up in conjunction at 14 deg Leo. The truth is that Venus and Mars don’t get along at all. Venus likes the soft and gentle. Mars is brash, violent or impatient. So their combination means very tense relationship issues and rows for everyone: especially for Leos and Aquarians.

The Uranus-Pluto Square: Uranus is square Pluto all month (Uranus 20 Aries; Pluto 13 Capricorn). This square is a wide one (not close orbs). This is most powerful revolution if you have planets at these points. I cannot say this strongly enough. Embrace it. Clear the decks for it. Old habits can die hard, but be aware the breath of revolution could be coming your way. Work with the change. Let it flow.

Saturn is square Jupiter all month (Saturn 28 Scorpio; Jupiter 27 Leo): Depending on how this aspect which is transiting in the heavens falls in your natal chart, you may be challenged to make progress now due to obstacles, so the call is to be patient and structured and determined.

Events will likely occur that restrict your movement in some way so that you must reduce your pace, especially if you have exceeded your limits. You will need to balance those areas that may have developed too fast and too soon. Make more realistic assessments. Develop good overall perspective.  Adjust your sights. Even question the wisdom of certain choices. Confidence can ebb now. Take a long and hard look at what you may be neglecting. Wherever you skip details, this period likely will make them stand out in your face! Take your time during this period. Reduce the number of commitments.

Mars changes Sign: Mars transits from the end of Cancer into Leo on August 9th. While Mars is in Cancer this requires careful management of emotions. Mars in Cancer is deeply protective. But he is easily triggered into battle. Mars in Leo behaves like a Solar Warrior!

To make you even more irritable and impatient, Mars is moving into a square aspect with Uranus!

Chiron is Retrograde from 24th June to 27th November: around 20 Pisces in August

Retrograde Chiron will make us focus on what needs to be healed in our lives/bodies at the moment. The Wounded Healer can offer us visions of the buried gold to be found in our wounds. He may lead us to set new standards in health and functioning in life. He calls on us to identify to causes of our wounds and illness. Some will discover amazing abilities to heal themselves around some key wound or health issue. We are all wounded/broken to some degree; now is the time to let in the light. If we allow the life force to flow through us unbounded, this enables us to heal and express our Essence.

We must each decide for ourselves what healing truly means. Resolve unfinished business now. Face difficult emotions. Make changes in our life scripts. Ancestral scripts may be running in our life, and these need exploring and healing and our lives re-shaping and empowering, so that we express our Essence and our personal connection to Spirit, rather than just responding to the ghastly ancestral scripts. Shocking events can be seen as a doorway to healing and empowerment, where we will each come to embody our own unique incarnational life purpose, our own unique expression of Sacred Source, our own expression of the strengths that we incarnated to manifest. A healing of the negative karmas that were constellated in to our life scripts this time.

Neptune is Retrograde from 12th June 2015 to 18th November 2015: He’s at 9 deg Pisces today, June 27th 2015.

It depends on our level of awareness how we will experience Neptune Retrograde. Any Retrograde planet makes us look deeper and stronger at how the energy of that planet is manifesting in our life.

Negatively, Retrograde Neptune can mean an intensification of our delusion or denial, a ‘lovely’ meeting with a liar or a deception merchant. A flight into unreality, avoidance through self-deception.

Positively Retrograde Neptune can mean increase in vision and intuition, increase in compassion, embracing the divine love and meaning of things that happen to us. Obviously what we experience during Neptune Retrograde will depend on which House in our birth chart. Have a look at your chart: which House is this Retrograde Neptune in Pisces transiting through. And of course our Neptune experiences are also affected by where Neptune is in your birth chart.

I feel Neptune is a vastly powerful energy, and he can be catastrophic around self-loss, deception or delusion or alcohol. However, when Neptune was strongly influential in my own life, I developed clair-vision and clair-audience. I saw the world through a ‘transparency’ of scenes from some Hunter Gather age. I heard words and lyrics and wrote these down into my Novel: Vision Holder Munay Ki see:

A special indication of a period of special power of Neptune in our individual life is the ‘individuation Age Point’ and the ‘Nodal Age Point’ which you can learn about in my worldwide psychodynamic astrology course:

Neptune Retrograde can bring deep peace and faith, to withdraw into the realm of inner space.

This whole reading is well worth seeing, so please do persist despite the initial echo. Here is the link:
N.B. After the 18mins point, there is no echo!!!
This is the 3rd in a series of Webinars where members of a Master Vedic Astrology study Group develop their skills at reading the Vedic birth chart.
Special features in this No 3 session also include:
1. Use of psychodynamic chart aspect shapes.
2. Use of Nature versus Nurture charts in psychodynamic astrology.
3. Use of Art Therapy for healing and empowerment is also shown.
4. Use of Navtara system for understanding how the Nakshatras or Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology are used to identify and help with relationship issues for Rebecca from family members.
5. Use of Atmakaraka and Amatyakaraka.
6. Further answer to Rebecca’s question about career indicators will be addressed in a future webinar on the Dasamsa Chart (10th Harmonic Divisional or Varga Chart)

To see the Master Vedic Astrology Course, see:

The Level 1 Course is based on student reports written by each student on each of their planets.
These reports can be as extensive and in-depth as the student wishes.
And please note that they are responded to with great depth and care using the Oxford University Tutorial system that I myself benefited from.

But in addition the Course also offers:
Regular webinars
A Face Book Group if you wish to use this
And most importantly if you wish to use the perception offered by your astrology studies in this way, the following healing/empowerment approaches:
Application of a range of Healing Modalities.
Art therapy
Dance and Empowerment Techniques.
