Goodness, there are quite exceptionally six planets in two signs from October 1st to October 18th.
In the Vedic Sign of Leo: On 1st October 2015, Venus moves into the Vedic sign of Leo to make a total of three planets there: Venus at 0 degrees, Mars at 10 degrees and Jupiter at 16 degrees Leo.
The Vedic Sign of Virgo: At the same time there are actually a total three planets in the next Vedic sign of Virgo, namely: Rahu (North Node) at 6 degrees, Mercury (Retrograde) at 11 degrees and Sun at 14 degrees Virgo.
BIG QUESTION: What will this exceptional pile-up of energy mean for you?
Well in my case, Leo is my 2nd House, one of the meanings of which is speech, and Virgo is my 3rd House one of the meanings of which is communication.
So I expect my novel which I am writing to go really well and powerfully over the period October 1st to 18th andI shall make sure to put time aside to be able to fully maximise the expression of my inspiration.
My novel is called the Morrigan and the Dagda and is about the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish. My partner, Maggie Pashley and I are actually visiting the far West of Ireland from 26th September to 6th October to study the places I am writing about in my novel.
Yes, that ‘holiday’ period in Ireland does indeed include the spectacular Eclipse on Monday 28th September!
But remember, special inspiration can come through at eclipse times, though eclipses can also mean downfall. It all depends on where the eclipse falls in relation to your birth chart. Eclipses can also mean earthquakes or tidal waves on the Earth plane. This eclipse falls in my 3rd house of communication: good for the novel!
MY READINGS AND COURSES:
Have one of my expert worldwide astrology readings. They combine both Vedic and Western astrology. Healing modalities are also available: www.starwheelastrology.com
Or join one of my truly caring and very high quality astrology courses: My astrology Courses websites are: www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com. These courses can take you into supported and mentored study as deep as you could wish for.
Also there are very regular webinars as well!(http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/webinars.html)
Always in my work there is opportunity to combine and use the perceptions generated by top-class astrology with healing and transformation work. In no way is this rote astrology-learning for the sake of it! Get in touch!
Oh, and by the way, there are not just three planets in Leo from October 8th to 10th. There is even a 4th Planet in the Vedic sign of Leo from October 8th. This is because Moon is in Leo from then until late on October 10th
And of course, when Moon leaves Leo and then enters Virgo, that will make four planets in Vedic Virgo from October 10th until October 13th.
Oh, and Mercury turns direct on October 9th
It would be great if you felt that one of my astrology courses was right for you.
Basically I teach courses in both western and Vedic Astrology, but with option for as much (or as little) crossover into the other discipline as as each student wishes.
There is a very active face book group working their individual ways through the courses.
The spine of the course is study of each planet in your birth chart, and mine, to the depth that each student wishes, but the webinars and the group sustain and enliven what could otherwise be a long solo exercise.
Always, legalistic or formulaic astrological utterance is avoided. Yes, powerful techniques of development of astrological perception are used, and can be taken to great depth, but this is always anchored in the heart, and in the body: for example through use of EFT, art work, embodiment, inner child work, family constellation work, etc.
My two astrology course websites are
www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com.
My western astrology course affords every opportunity for psychodynamic astrology and evolutionary astrology perspectives on the two charts under study: yours and mine.
The Vedic astrology course is vast and technically utterly proficient.
You can join either course at any time.
Examples of the webinars for course attenders is on the webpage: http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/webinars.html . We are in a phase of interpreting members’ charts at present, but that will move on to topic presentations shortly.
I work closely with my partner Maggie Pashley. Some of the healing modalities Maggie can offer are to be seen at: http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/healings.html. And yes, the majority of her work is done worldwide via skype. Her other websites are
www.changeforlife.co.uk and www.bodycodehealing.co.uk.
I have studied advanced courses in both Vedic and Western Astrology for many years. I have an MA from the University of Oxford and a total of five degrees including psychology, sociology, counselling and teaching. I have additionally completed an invaluable five year university-based social anthropological ethnographic field study of spiritual forms new to the modern West, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Utopian Community. And I have also resided for long periods in a Hindu Ashram. I have worked with shamanic healing and earth spirituality paths for many years. I am the author of six books.

November 2015 starts off the month with a big pile-up of energy:
Jupiter, Venus and Mars are all close to the Nodal axis in Virgo, and all of these are opposition Chiron, the Wounded Healer, across the chart in Pisces.
To view the charts and ephemeris for this month, go to the 2015 page in my wonderful Master Vedic Astrology website: www.mastervedicastrology.com.
Here is the line-up of the planets for November 1st and a table showing how they move in the heavens through the month. This is the tropical zodiac of western astrology:
Sun moves from 8 Scorpio to 8 Sagittarius
Moon starts the month at 8 Cancer on November 1st
Mercury moves from 27 Libra to 15 Sagittarius
Venus moves from 21 Virgo to 25 Libra
Mars moves from 22 Virgo to 10 Libra
Jupiter moves from 16 to 21 Virgo
Saturn moves from 4 to 7 Sagittarius
Uranus moves from 17 to 16 Aries – Retrograde
Neptune is at 7 Pisces – Retrograde
Pluto moves from 13 to 14 Capricorn
Chiron is at 17 Pisces – Retrograde
Moon Phases this month:
New Moon: 11.11.2015 at 17.47 at 19 Scorpio
Full Moon: 25.11.2015 at 22.44 at 3 Gemini
N.B. To see the dates and times of Full/New Moons and Eclipses correct for your time zone on the face of the Earth, see: the very useful website: http://www.timeanddate.com/
Jupiter, Venus and Mars all in the same sign will produce a positive strong energy (this conjunction is in strong, showy Leo using the Vedic astrology Zodiac), but one where we will be very open to using that energy and our awareness to express ourselves strongly as we sort out issues of health, healing and right living patterns in our life.
Actually, Venus and Mars can produce a lot of explosions in love issues, and steamy irritable emotions, but remember that their highest meaning is to draw us through these to the highest expression of love.
These three planets start off November all opposition Chiron in Pisces. He will be calling us to heal our wounds or issues in our love relationships bring us in to touch with our greater unconscious intuitive awareness and our dreams.
Mercury moves into Scorpio on November 3rd and then into Sagittarius on November 21st.
Venus moves into Libra on November 9th
Mars moves into Libra on November 13th
Mars and Venus continue close in Libra through the rest of November, leaving Jupiter behind when they enter Libra.
Sun – Saturn: Sun is moving ever closer in the heavens to Saturn all month, and they end the month around 7 Sagittarius. This will produce a dawning serious energy where you could usefully apply deep introspection as to your spiritual beliefs. And you could have to face some deeply-held difficult emotions and deal with hurts, because this conjunction is in Scorpio in Vedic Astrology.
Sun-Saturn Square to Neptune: Notice that this Sun-Saturn conjunction is square Neptune at 7 Pisces which could be useful to show us the difference between our dreams and visions and how our life is actually contained, even imprisoned.
Mercury trine Uranus: And Mercury is trine Uranus at the end of the month: be open to revolution, to forefront ideas and concepts.
Uranus square Pluto: And of course Uranus is square Pluto in the heavens all month, with the square getting tighter and more powerful all month: Uranus at 16 Aries, Pluto at 14 Capricorn. .
If you have planets around these degrees, this energy is shaking up your world on a personal level and you will experience many life altering changes depending on what else in your chart. This will be the grand finale of this square aspect which has been in the heavens affection your life on and off for three years. It’s a big energy. This square only occurs in the heavens once every 8o years. Pluto is deeply transformative, though we can also experience him as intense, controlling and shadowy. Uranus is freedom-fighting and innovative. If you have planets in Aries and Capricorn, take stock now: how had this energy affected you. Is there anything you need to do now to ground and manifest the needed transformation and change in your life?
Difficult time for Librans and Scorpios: Remember the long-running difficult time for Librans and Scorpios continues because most of their two signs are hemmed in by malefics: Saturn and rahu. This challenge has been in place since November 2014 and will last until the end of January 2016.
The Moon is in Cancer on November 1st and 2nd but The Moon moves into Leo on November 3rd, and you can track the position of the Moon for every day of the month using the western and Vedic astrology ephemeris in the November page for 2015 in my Master Vedic Astrology website: http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/astrology-report-november-2015.html.
The positon of the Moon in the heavens makes a massive difference to our state of mind.
The Moon brings us gifts depending on what sign he is in, but often the Moon’s gift will be to teach us to deal with depression or irritation, for example if the Moon is conjunct Mars or Saturn in our birth charts or in the heavens.
It really is very worthwhile becoming aware of the position of the Moon each day, and learning how much our feelings and emotions are affected, and, crucially, learning ways of dealing with this!
My Astrology Readings website is: www.starwheelastrology.com. My readings are incredibly thorough and learned and exceptionally they combine both psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology as well as the vast and sure declaration of Vedic Astrology.
My astrology courses websites are: www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com. These courses can take you into supported and mentored study as deep as you could wish for.
Also there are very regular webinars (http://www.mastervedicastrology.com/webinars.html)
Always there is opportunity to combine and use the perceptions generated by top-class astrology with healing and transformational techniques and methods. In no way is this rote astrology-learning for the sake of it! Get in touch!
The sure perception of Vedic, psychodynamic and evolutionary Astrology is used as a basis for personal transformation through art work, embodiment and healing
In this starwheel webinar by Michael Conneely we focus on three things:
a. David’s Vedic and Western Natal Astrology
b. The astrology of David’s life-changing accident 27.8.2006.
c. David’s Jupiter Atmakaraka (His soul indicator).
Using the perception offered by Vedic and Western astrology, channelling, art therapy, embodiment and healing work are done by the group at end of Webinar:
- We draw our perception of David’s Saturn-Mercury conjunction in his 8th House which was activated at the time of his accident
- We draw David’s Atmakaraka: His soul indicator, the planet Jupiter, which was also activated at the time of the accident. Our Atmakaraka is the declaration of a special unfinished project from our previous life-time(s).
- We channel what these planets of David’s tell us through the art work.
d. We embody these drawings
e. We then report back and share on the two drawings, on the embodiment and on the special message these two drawings have for David.
Building on the sure and accurate declaration and perception of psychodynamic and evolutionary western astrology as well as Vedic astrology combined, intuitive guidance comes up from our subconscious and from the vastness spontaneously and automatically. This gift happens when they would not otherwise when we draw and when we then stand up and embody: when we do creative movement.
Art work and movement have the power to express what would otherwise be suppressed and also re-pattern the brain neurologically. It is a powerful and vast bonus to let the body express the perceptions and the emotions arising from the study of the birth chart and the predictive astrology.
Join my two astrology courses: Vedic astrology and Western Astrology: www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com. The principles underlying these Vedic and western astrology courses is that they combine detailed prolonged study of your chart and mine with close and caring mentoring, as well as ongoing webinars to support you in your long-term learning project. Either course embodies the principle that you can cross over into the other discipline as much or as little as you wish (either Western Astrology into Vedic Astrology or vice versa) and there are very lively and supportive members’ Face Book groups if you wish to join these.
