Astrology and Healing Newsletter March 2018

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

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’.
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.

Understand the 15th February 2018 Eclipse in your life

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!


Lords of Karma Intro Pt. 3 Astrology Techniques

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.

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.

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: ( ), 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.

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:

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:

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.

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

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).


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.


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).

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


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.
