Big Saturn Transits 2017 Really Important Guidance also including Uranus and North Node

On Midsummer Solstice 2017, the day, I am writing this Blog Post, there is a big Saturn transit.

Saturn Transits 2017

The effects will last until the end of November 2017.

In fact this is one of three big Transits in 2017, also including Uranus and Rahu the North Node of the Moon

For the second of three times in 2017, Saturn now crosses one of the three difficult, dangerous and very sensitive Gandanta Zones in Vedic Astrology. Though do also note that these Gandanta zones can also be inspired as well as difficult, dangerous or sensitive!

So, today, Saturn Retrogrades from the Vedic sign Sagittarius to the Vedic sign Scorpio. Saturn is at 0 degrees Vedic Sagittarius, then 29 degrees Vedic Scorpio. This is 24 degrees Western Sagittarius

On 26th January 2017, Saturn transited forward from vedic Scorpio into Vedic Sagittarius, but then he turned retrograde and today he re-enters vedic Scorpio, and will not get back into Vedic Sagittarius again until 26th October 2017.

So, this means, first, that today and the week or so either side, as Saturn actually makes the Sagittarius-Scorpio sign transition, you may be feeling very sensitive, depending on your particular birth chart details.

And do note ABOVE ALL, there is something much more MAJOR: we will all be called by Saturn to finish off. often MAJOR, DIFFICULT UNFINISHED OFTEN KARMIC BUSINESS AND ISSUES, that were raised all the time when Saturn was earlier transiting through Vedic Scorpio, in other words from 3.11.2014 to 26.1.2017.

These three Gandanta Zones are the two degrees either side of the three transition points from a Water Sign to a fire Sign in Vedic Astrology. So, these are: Scorpio/Sagittarius, Pisces/Aries and Cancer/Leo. Remember the closer the planet is to the zero point of the actual transition, the bigger the Gandanta effect on the planet (natally or by predictive transit). And note that as I am writing this Blog Post, Saturn is actually at zero degrees Vedic Sagittarius. The exact Gandanta hinge. Let’s now look at all three huge Gandanta Transits of 2017, and try to note what we should do about them.

The Three Gandanta Transits 2017:

There are three major Gandanta transits in 2017: I here assess their effects both in terms of the 12-sign Vedic Sidereal Zodiac, but also the wonderful 27-sign Vedic Lunar Zodiac: The 27 Nakshatras.

The three big Gandanta transits of 2017 are:

1. Saturn transits three times in 2017 through the Scorpio/Sagittarius Gandanta. As I said, in terms of the Vedic 12 Sign Sidereal Zodiac this Gandanta spans Scorpio/Sagittarius. But in terms of the 27-sign Lunar Zodiac, the Nakshatras, this Gandanta spans Jyestha Nakshatra (at the end of Vedic Scorpio) to Mula Nakshatra (at the start of Vedic Sagittarius). This is a severe gandanta known as Abhukta Mula Gandanta.

2. Uranus is transiting the Pisces/Aries Gandanta. In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this Gandanta is the Revati – Ashwini Gandanta. This is 24 degrees Western Aries.

3. Rahu, The North Node of the Moon  transits into the Cancer/Leo Gandanta with two eclipses! In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this Gandants i the Ashlesha – Magha Gandanta. The is 24 degrees Western Leo.

Here are the details of the three gandanta transits of 2017:

1. Saturn transits the Scorpio/Sagittarius Jyestha/Mula Gandanta zone three times in 2017. and Saturn will still be in this Gandanta Zone in November 2017.

And, as I said, in terms of the Vedic 12 Sign Sidereal Zodiac this Gandanta spans Scorpio/Sagittarius, but in terms of the 27-sign Lunar Zodiac, the wonderful Nakshatras, this is the transition today covers the space in the heavens from Jyestha Nakshatra (at the end of Vedic Scorpio) to Mula Nakshatra (at the start of Vedic Sagittarius).

This is a severe gandanta known as Abhukta Mula Gandanta.

Importantly, note that Jyestha Nakshatra is the end of the second materially-orientated ‘Tamas’ group of Nine nakshatras, but being on the transition point into Mula which is the first of the nine Sattvic or spiritually orientated Nakshatras, this raises a torsion challenge from Saturn. He has to change his duty form Tamas materiality to Sattva spirituality, and we will all of us feel this torsion.

Saturn crossed the difficult Gandanta Zone between Scorpio and Sagittarius around 26th January 21st June. He’s now re-entered Scorpio. But he will cross back into vedic Sagittarius for the final time on 26th October 2017.

This meant that when Saturn transits into Mula/Sagittarius in January 2017, there was a tide towards Sattva/Spiritualit, yet the Tamas or materiality tide will run now again from June to October 2017.

But is also means that, very importantly people will find that things left unfinished from Saturn’s transit through Scorpio from 3.11.2014 to 26.1.2017. and often these things will be very, very tough, because Saturn is Lord of Karma, and he is a severe planet. He seeks to call us to our spiritual meaning and destiny, not caring, of course, if this is tough!

And note also that there will be a Saturn-Ketu/South Node Exchange of signs or ‘Parivartana Yoga’ from 21st June to 18th August, when Saturn will be transiting Scorpio as the Ruler of Aquarius, and at the same time Ketu will be transiting Aquarius as the co-ruler of Scorpio. So, this could mean big effects in your life depending on the areas of life covered by Scorpio and Aquarius in your birth chart: what Houses they are in your birth chart.

Note that Saturn ceases his current retrograde and turns direct on 25th August 2017 when he is at 27 deg Scorpio 04.

So, what does it mean if we have a planet in one of the three Gandanta zones???

Note that for you natal Moon to be in one of the Gandanta Zones, in your birth chart, will have a very tough effect on your life as regards Mother issues; the nearer to the zero point sign transition point the Moon is the worse will be the effect in our lives. Indeed, to have Moon in the Gandanta normally means that it will be the case that the difficult Mother issues can’t be resolved, so your karmic challenge is to learn to live with them.

Note especially that for a woman to have Moon in the Scorpio-Sagittarius Gandanta Zone, which is called the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, this is very difficult for marriage or for mothering issues, and for effects on how she will mother any children she may have or adopt, as this position for the Moon in her own chart seriously means that her Mother will not be there for her, her mother will not be there to mother her. And she may very definitely pass it on – unless she heals, if she can heal!

Indeed, if it’s a case of New Moon in the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, this means it’s even worse, because both Sun and Moon are there in the Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone, and there are very difficult father issues for the person there as well as lack of a mother who has a settled enough mind to mother.

But note in addition to these meanings for the Moon in a Gandanta Zone, that for any planet to be in any of the three Gandanta Zones in your birth Chart, means that there will be a very serious challenge to the solidity and nature of that planet in your life.

But please note that so long as that planet is not the Moon, then you can definitely do a lot to heal and empower the planet, and even better, you can learn to utilise the sensitive inspiration side of the Gandanta energy to fuel that planet’s healed expression in your life.

This is why in my Astrology Readings, and also in my Astrology Courses, I always teach astrology that avoids formula or fatalism, and is always geared to healing and empowerment.

Let’s move on to the Second Gandanta Transit of 2017: Uranus:

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

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

I am not saying that everyone will handle the energy of Uranus entering Vedic Aries/Ashwini Nakshatra in the way that Adolph Hitler did, but some definitely will try to handle it that way. And i pray that coutries where there’s fundamentalist religion do not have a guru or prophet arise, as happened with Germany in the run up to World War 2. A Prophet could unite currently fighting fundamentalist states. It would just like August 24th  410 AD when the Roman Empire was wiped out because the Huns, the Visigoths and the Vandals united and they crossed the Rhine (which had frozen over) marshed South, destroyed the City and ended the Roman Empire. Is the West now also waiting for the Barbarians as imperial Rome was?????

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

Uranus will occupy the Gandanta degree four times:
28.6.16
31.8.16
8.4.17
2.1.18 (just short of the zero point)

But also note most importantly, there is also a very important transiting Jupiter- Uranus opposition: Jupiter in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries, exact, on these three dates:

  1. December 27, 2016 at Western 20 degrees Libra-Aries (Vedic 26 Virgo to 26 Pisces)
    2. March 7, 2017 at 22 degrees. (Vedic 27 Virgo to 27 Pisces)
    3. September 27, 2017 at 27 degrees (Vedic 3 Libra to 3 Aries).

Uranus-Jupiter is a blessed exapnsion energy if it’s on top of one of the planets in your brith chart, and it’s good for the sign it’s in in your birth chart.

And now Gandanta Transit 3 of 2017: Rahu, the North Node of the Moon: 
Rahu/North Node enters the Leo to Cancer gandanta. In terms of the 27 Nakshatras, this is the Ashlesha/Magha Gandanta. Tough note that the actual transit sequence is: Magha/Ashlesha. This is because the nodes have backwards/retrograde motion in the heavens. And this Nodal Gandanta crossing occurs on 10th July 2017. Rahu is caught up in the gandanta eclipse of 7th and 21st August 2017.

Rahu then enters vedic Cancer 18th August, finally leaving the last two degrees of Cancer which it enters, the Cancer/Leo Gandanta zone on 24th September 2017

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

In the eclipse of 7th August 2017, Rahu is deep in the Gandanta at 0 Leo 32.

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

AND. as i said, THIS GANDANTA CROSSING HAS BIG COMPLICATIONS FOR DONALD TRUMP AND THE USA: This eclipse Sun/Moon New Moon is right on top of Donald Trump’s Mars at 3 deg Leo and his Ascendant at 6 Leo. What will happen to him and the USA?

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

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

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

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

Spiritual Note: 

In fact, the Gandanta Zones are portals where we can pass from this material realm and see that it is actually not as substantial as we thought, that it is in fact Maha Maya, the Great Illusion, and that the true reality lies beyond: that the true reality is the Shiva-Shakti realm, endless creative mating where the universe is sustained. Or it can be likened to Lord Vishnu dreaming in ecstasy dreaming new universes in and out of being. Or it can be likened to the dance of lord Shiva Nataraja, who dances encircled in flames, creating, sustaining, then destroying, universes in and out of being as he dances on the supine form of Aparasmara: the demon of ignorance!

Abhukta Mula – special footnote: The Gandanta at the end of Jyestha, as well as the Gandanta at the start of Mula which is the next Nakshatra, is a very bad place to have the Moon and is traditionally seen as a barrier for a woman to get married. I have known cases where certainly woman with Moon in Gandanta very much should not have got married, both because on what they do to their husbands, and because they can destroy their children and then look good nursing the wreckage. See more detail about Abhukta Mula above. This difficulty is created by the problems the woman’s mother would have been having at the time of the birth of her daughter, and because the daughter would have to go through predictive period change or ‘Dasa change’ very young: too young to be able to cope with it.

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

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

Michael Conneely

Eclipse 21st August 2017 : the Possible Outcomes and Consequences

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Prophet could unite currently fighting fundamentalist states.

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

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

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

Uranus will occupy the Gandanta degree at the start of Vedic Aries (24 Western Aries) four times:
28.6.16
31.8.16
8.4.17
2.1.18 (just short of the zero point)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And by weird stroke of destiny, Donald trump has Kal Sarpa Yoga in his birth chart!!!!!!

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

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

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

Uranus in the Astrology Birth Chart

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

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

Your Astrology and your Time of Birth: Rectification

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

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

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

But perception can get us so far.

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

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

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

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

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

People ask about rectification and its value.

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

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

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

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

  1. Your Ascendant or rising Sign:

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

  1. Your Predictive Age Points:

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

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

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

SO, HOW IS MY TIME OF BIRTH RECTIFIED?

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

I use two methods:

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

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

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

SO, WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The supreme value of Astrology with Healing and Empowerment

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

I often receive emails from people who are rightly expressing the damage they have experienced from their family of their life situation, and they are asking how astrology can help them.

Because I too have suffered from for example adoptive (and birth) family, this raises the issue of what work do we have to do to free ourselves and heal ourselves so that we can more ourselves out of the damage and become the spark of achievement that we uniquely incarnated to become.
We should not live in reactive hate and hurt, nor use the horrible people or events as an excuse or reason for living in hurt and failure, tempting though it is to remain in our outraged hurt victim scripts. We have such a similar agenda and challenge here, and in fact the success of our lives is what is at stake.
And so this is related to the question: what is the value of astrology?

THE VALUE OF ASTROLOGY:
From our astrology birth chart, there is so much we can accurately see and state, so as to understand ourselves and so as to understand our lives, and therefor so as to heal ourselves, heal our lives.
I have studied with nine teachers in both western and vedic astrology. On the one hand, I have come to reject the formulaic ranting or the fated declarations that can characterise traditional cultural Hindu vedic Astrology and its often egoic teachers, and the useless traditional remedies and the uncritical and unaware prescription of mantra. On the other hand, I have also come to reject the astro-babble that can characterise the worst in Western Astrology, and its ungrounded waste of time psychobabble.
But I can recognise that with deep study, one can come to amazing insights using the many charts and techniques of Vedic Astrology, and one can come to invaluable insights using the enlightened psychological awareness of western astrology, for example psychodynamic western astrology and evolutionary astrology.
However, I then have to go one to say firmly that such analysis and declaration is not at all useful unless it is geared to using the perception for transformation. TRANSFORMATION.
It is just not utilising the declaration of astrology to its full value, nor fulfilling the needs in our life, unless the declaration of expert astrology is then used for changing the way one manages one’s consciousness and thus the way one understands and lives one’s life.
Basically, when one goes deeply into Vedic astrology, one can make such invaluable and supreme diagnoses of how each planet will manifest in our life, and of how one’s planets treat each other in one’s chart – and therefore in one’s life, and also of what planet will especially manifest predictively in one’s life at a particular time in the unfoldment of one’s predictive astrology, of what exact energy each planet will bring in to one’s life natally or predictively.

This must be used for our healing and empowerment.

It must not be used fatedly and passively.

I advocate, and include, in my Astrology Readings and in my Astrology Courses, the crossover of vedic and Western Astrology. This is so that the peerless declaration of Vedic Astrology of our incarnational life purpose, and the precise declaration about each planet’s energy in our lives (and how our planets treat each other) is linked to, and enhanced by, understanding of the energies of the outer Planets in our lives: the Gods of Change: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, and also Chiron our Wounded Healer. These planet’s energies and meanings came into the human consciousness when they were discovered, and must be taken account of.

Chitra Nakshatra

Michael ConneelyProphetic Utterance and Sacred Alphabets Chitra Nakshatra

Chitra Nakshatra is the 14th Nakshatra or Lunar Sign of Vedic Astrology. The translation of the name sums up the energy of a person whose planets are prominently placed here: Brilliant, bright and shining.

Chita Nakshatra spans: 23°40′ of the Vedic Sign of Virgo to 6°40′ of the Vedic Sign of Libra. Vedic Astrology uses the Sidereal Zodiac, as compared to western astrology’s use of the tropical zodiac. And Vedic Astrology also has this wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac called the Nakshatras.

Chitra Nakshatra is ruled by Mars and this makes planets placed in Chitra have a warrior nature and be somewhat aggressive or militant.
Read about my worldwide Nakshatra Course and what great insights it can offer you

Chitras are very creative. The Ruling Deity of Chitra is Vishvakarma (Tvashtar) The Heavenly Architect. Their life mission is to create something beautiful. They can be quite magical in the way they go about this.

The Symbol of Chitra Nakshatra is the Pearl. Just as the dull oyster shell can open to reveal the unutterable beauty of the pearl within, so Chitra’s lives are often the endless attempt to reveal their specialness and creative beauty to the world.

The Power animal of Chitra Nakshatra is the Female Tiger, so they can be very touchy and temperamental, with a strong streak of aggression, retaliation and ruthlessness if you upset them (don’t do it!)

So, now let’s look at Chitra Pada 4:

There is a very valid and powerful system of analysing the Nakshatras which divides each of the 27 Nakshatras into four quarters or ‘padas’. Each Pada is ruled by the energy of a zodiacal sign.

Each Nakshatras Pada covers the same area of the heavens as each Navamsha. The Navamsha chart is one of the wonderful Vedic Divisional or Varga charts, this one to do with marriage and the expression of your soul in this life.

Chitra Pada 4 spans 03°20′ to 06°40′ of the Vedic sign of Libra.

Chitra Pada 4 is ruled by Scorpio in the pada sequence.

So, the 4th pada of Chitra is Scorpio in its energy. The energy is quite magical, deep, fully of intensity and inner knowing and mysterious.

Because it is Scorpio in nature, Chitra pada 4 is intense and controlling. It is often full of hurt energies and the compensatory need to shine, delve and investigate. And as you would expect from the tantric nature of vedic astrology, difficult torsion energies, if learned about properly can give us great potential for spiritual transformation, perception, healing and growth. Experience of trauma can impel us to find spiritual meaning. It can impel us to develop prophetic utterance. And this is what my video on Chitra pada 4 is all about:

And part of this nature is that people with planets here are often visionary. Indeed, I have found that such people often seem to enrol on one of my courses to learn prophetic ancient alphabets such as the Runes of the Ancient Norse or the Ogham of the ancient Irish.

So, Chitra pada 4 is the pada of Chitra Gupta, who holds the book of life recording all our karmic deeds.

Chitra Gupta is the deity of Utterance and writing. He is akin to the other great gods of sacred Alphabets and prophetic utterance: Thoth, Maat, Odin, Hermes and Ogma.

The featured image of this Blog Post shows Odin who hung upside down in the World Tree trancing for nine days and nights in pain and cold until he seized the meaning and the magic of the runes: the alphabet of the ancient Norse and Germanic peoples.

This is the pada where our scripts and behaviour habits and patterns of behaviour have to be modified and changed. This way we come to express the revelation from our inner being. This is the true place of the secret knowledge of Chitra Gupta.

See the full details of my Nakshatras course at:

www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com

In part 1 of the course, you study each Nakshatra in turn, with special reference to the manifestation of that Nakshatras energy in your chart and mine, but also bringing in family, friends and celebrities. The aim of this chart focus is to promote caring and authentic discussion and analysis. There is full information about each of the Nakshatras’ qualities and characteristics, plus a reading list, and there’s a video for each Nakshatra for you to review.

Natal study of the Nakshatras: So, what you do is you analyse the implications for each of the planets in our two charts in the light of the Nakshatras they occupy. What does this mean for our personality, for our life, for our destiny? How will it affect our emotional natures and consciousness arising therefrom? What steps can we take to heal and empower?

In Part 2 of the course, you learn the full range of the interpretation techniques using the nakshatras, such as Navtara the derived Nakshatras table (the Tara system) and health astrology using the Nakshatras, Surya, Manasa and Nadi Nakshatras. Nakshatras for relationship compatibility. Predictive study of the Nakshatras: You also analyse the predictive implications of transits of planets through the Nakshatras and, using Nakshatra analysis, you also deepen your analysis of Vedic Astrology’s wonderful system of predictive periods and sub-periods: the Dashas and Bhuktis

Correspondence: You email me your work in respect of each Nakshatra within Part 1 and then each Technique within Part 2, and I then email you my response, which is always detailed, learned and very caring. You are always welcome to ask questions at any point.

In all cases, there will be opportunity if you wish for it for linking of the astrological perception, to approaches of healing and empowerment, and use of art and embodiment work, and for example: psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay, Inner Child Work and Family Constellation Work, where applicable. ​A wide range of separately charged skilled worldwide Healing Modalities is available if you would feel this to be individually beneficial for you.

I look forward to working with you,
Michael
