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)
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.
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.
FOOTNOTE: 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.

So first of all, here’s a list of the Healing Modalities offered by myself: These are very special Healing opportunities. They are available at one price if you enrol for them as an independent piece of Healing. Or they are available at a reduced price if you receive them as add-on modules to one of my Astrology Readings or Astrology Courses. Either way, these Healing Modalities are all geared to the development of your karmic awareness and healing. Please email me if you wish to Enrol for one of them:
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: (https://www.earthstarweb.com/shamanic-healer.html ), 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.

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: www.bodycodehealings.com/heart-walls
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: www.bodycodehealings.com/heart-walls
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.
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.
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.
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, 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.
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’.
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 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.
In part 3 of Uranus as Lord of Karma, we look at the way to analyse the Astrology of Uranus, natally and predictively. And we look at the issue of whether the karmic impact of Uranus is fated, or whether we can do something to perceive, understand and then change/transform the effect of Uranus in our life.
Uranus in our Birth Chart: Fated or Not?
Uranus is a crucial part of the karma with which you start your life. He is one of the planets in your birth chart which are in fact a map of your destiny and potential, your karma and your means to achieve growth in relation to your karma. Here’s a list of the topics we take a look at in this blog: just a tiny few of the themes for understanding of Uranus in our birth chart:
1. Uranus v. Saturn
2. Uranus in the Signs
3. Uranus in the Houses
4. Uranus Aspects to other planets
5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:
6. Uranus Retrograde:
7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:
8. Uranus in Synastry:
9. Uranus in our Predictive Astrology: Fated or Not?
1. Uranus v. Saturn:
Uranus brings bursts and phases of awareness and inspiration. Fresh new insights appear out of nowhere. What you always knew was there but pretended wasn’t, suddenly becomes plane.
If you’re sensitive you can feel the beams of inspiration coming and going. They heighten your awareness, they stimulate you intellectual perception. They enhance your intellectual energy. You discover things about your life and your present phase. You find new solutions. You see how stuck or inhibited you’ve been. You become spontaneous, and can make sudden decisions and take sudden new directions.
Saturn grinds away with a life of blocks and duties. Uranus steps in and shatters them.
But: Remember: Saturn castrated Uranus!!!
Uranus breaks illusion.
Uranus frees you from dependency.
Uranus lets you insist on your right to strike out into revolution.
Uranus jolts you to break free from your shackles.
Uranus makes you agile. Keenly aware. Whole.
You now know that God is an energy that flows and manifest through you. Turn away from the imposed bureaucratic priesthood and the goo-goo stupid congregation, and the manipulative ‘charm’ of the priest.
Importantly you loosen your hold on your past scripts. Be prepared for the erratic. You are spurred to change your patterns and obsessions. They seem of less consequence. They are seen as outmoded and overdue for replacement.
Uranus energy brings you sudden higher awareness, sudden big-picture perception, instant knowing. And you must stand up for this. Don’t let others drag you down. Sudden ability to do things better and faster. It is an enlightenment. Uranus breaks inner barriers to his enlightenment. He blows apart outgrown thought patterns and preconceived family or societal programming and stuck unthinking limited beliefs and attitudes.
Uranus also acts on your life powerfully as your life predictively unfolds. He brings you karmic challenges, as well as inspiration and energies of revolution with the divine purpose of destroying your blocks and maximising your realisation of your potential.
You need to perceive their scope and definition, and perceive what is their most positive meaning and potential.
Above all you must be prepared to stand up for your uniqueness.
You must be prepared to stand up for your new perceptions, beliefs and intentions. No sniffing at life! No stuck patterns, now!
Freedom, originality, self-honesty
You must be prepared to strike out into new continents.
You must be prepared to be different from those around you.
Your Uranus karmas are not fated. You need to see them as opportunities for healing and for your empowerment. You need to be able to be discerning both about clinging to blocks that you are crassly letting hold you back, and abut new presentiments and goals which are impractical. Observe your thoughts, desires and behaviour; bring discrimination. Detach yourself from relationship scripts which hold you back from seeing the truth, and from being open to revolution.
And you must be thankful and celebrate what Uranus has brought you to. Delight in your constant amazement. Accept fascination. Cherish change.
Take as example Uranus in 11th House in your birth chart: karmically, Uranus is about trauma held in past life memories, about uprising against capricious and unjust tyranny, in the subtle mind, the subjugation and devaluation of our full potential, about our past life subjugation to outmoded institutions.
We can usefully contact and work with these past life karmas through past life regression, dream work, vision journey. Our other lives become a necessary quarry for self-healing, for individuation, for becoming the fullness of the special spark we incarnated to become.
The Outer Planet Uranus – a God of Change, can thus become an Evolutionary Agent.
So, let’s take a brief look at an example: Uranus in 11th House:
this is the person who is destined to experience (and heal from the experience) of living an inner lie due to experience of rejection or punishment, of fitting into groups on a false basis as a result. The attempt to fabricate security out of false, conditioned, imposed ways produces enormous mental stress, fear, crippling anxiety and emotional torsion: enforced living of a lie, in fact the inability to see the truth until the Uranus healing crisis arrives!
And how often does this individual make dysfunctional fittings in to groups, until the healing crisis finally arrive, and he finds and insists on his true worth, and so refuses any longer to fit into the unworthy groups.
3. Uranus in the Signs:
Take as example Uranus in Cancer. Clearly Uranus’ passages through Signs are generational, but we can usefully take a look for the need to heal Uranus trauma and re-birth in respect of the individual who has Uranus in Cancer. Does he need to experience early or indeed ongoing absence of good mothering so as to learn to mother himself? When will the healing crises come that will end his pattern of going for mother’s milk where it can never be found??? What are the effects on him of this karma: helplessness, touchiness? Dependence, worthless self-image?
We can seek to identify Cancerian past-life experiences. Was there imprinting in the womb? What were the circumstances of his birth and conception? What childhood wounds? What emotional scripts?
4. Uranus in Aspect to our birth chart planets:
Take as example Uranus in aspect the Sun:
Sudden inspirations. New creativity.
Swift and sudden important developments.
You are abruptly shaken out of your stuck ways.
You face life with new courage and faint in your own powers.
You clear away limitations
You want the new. You strive obsessively for your dreams to come true.
Uranus opposition Sun can force change upon you.
Health treatments can go well.
Your life becomes wild and chaotic, unpredictable and disruptive
A big theme running through our life is the Saturn – Uranus dilemma.
5. Chart Aspect Shapes and Uranus:
Psychotherapeutic Astrology has a magnificent repertoire of chart aspect shapes that identify the personality structures caused when planets aspects form chart aspect shapes, including of course unaspected planets.
These represent karmic structures within the personality which get revealed to our perception at predictable dates, and which can be worked with using psychosynthesis approach.
Here’s an example:
6. Uranus Retrograde:
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.
Retrograde Uranus means that you will find it harder to bring in needed revolution. You will find it harder to receive and implement the call to revolution when your Uranus transit happens.
Retrograde Uranus plays havoc with relationships. It can make the person false to their identity. It can lead to irritability or fighting. It can make it so hard for them to express their inner freedom, and so this is taken out on the partner.
Retrograde Uranus make the individual scatter his efforts in a driven way to find information and paradigms that will help him fill the aching void that he lives in a way that is false to his individuality. He may have learned something about independence in a previous lifetime, and is now really tested to implement it, and harmonise it with other areas of his life, or perhaps he was not independent enough in previous lifetime.
7. Uranus in Aspect to the Nodes of the Moon:
When analysing the manifestation of Uranus in conjunction to one of the Nodes of the Moon: Rahu North Node or Ketu South Node, the house and sign in the Vedic Cart needs to be taken into account. The western chart will depict the psychological implications.
Uranus conjunct the South Node Ketu is the person who came from a Uranian past life: maverick, eccentric, individualist, who may reply on the wisdom from the past and have channelling abilities and can be a mystic now. But on a lower level of manifestation, this individual is scattered and erratic.
North Node Rahu conjunct Uranus is he gadget lover. But at the higher manifestation this is the individual who is attuned to collective forces, creative, shocking or revolutionary.
8. Planets square the Nodes:
If you have Uranus square Nodes: look for past life effects such that the person now is driven by the need to find liberty from excessive, blocking demeaning past life conditioning. Crises in individuation are created.
This is a past life trauma indicator: analyse Uranus by sign, house and aspect.
Past life fear blocks individuation or proper authentic self-expression.
Vedic astrology provides incarnational life purpose statement from study of the nodes in your birth chart and planets aspecting them Western astrology also provides a definition of the effects of the nodal axis, but the definition of western astrology is more a psychological statement.
9. Uranus in Synastry:
In general terms, if Uranus of one partner strongly aspects a personal planet of the other partner, or if one partner or both is strongly Uranian, then these can be the themes:
Intense, fast rushing into relationship
Want total excitement
Freedom, impersonality, aloofness.
Spasmodic – or fluctuation.

Gets bored. Experiments
Always bringing in the new scheme or fanatic interest
These people get close and are then suddenly distant.

10. Uranus in our Predictive Astrology – Fated or Not?
First of all, in regard to this topic of Uranus’ Predictive Astrology, here’s some predictive data:
Uranus orbit is 84 years
Uranus’ first square to his natal position is around 22 years. The guy tours the USA on a motorbike or emigrates to New Zealand!
Your Uranus opposition is around 42 years.
Your 2nd Uranus square is around 63 years.
Your Uranus Return is at around 84 years. This is spiritual rebirth when experienced at its highest.
Uranus Transits call for you to rejects blocks and limitations, to look within yourself now, and to open to the call for your fulfilment of your karmic potential.
Uranus has great power, dynamism, suddenness and intensity, so you are called to make a clean sweep of what limits you now, and embrace revolution and inspiration.
Uranus will bring you intuitions, urges, obsession, visions and inspirations to force you to open to his energy of revolution in your life and discard what’s limiting. He works with dreams, visions, feelings and presentiments.
Uranus works with you in the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and artistic spheres.
Weirdly, Uranus is both democratic, iconoclastic and also the individualist autocratic leader!
Uranus is very attuned to electronic devices and gadgets.
Uranus at his highest is esoteric, with hidden explosive powers.
So, now let’s look at Uranus’ discovery, how he entered the human consciousness, and how the myth of Uranus is a powerful guide to understanding his nature and impact in our life – and then let’s identify Uranus’ actual nature:
2A. Uranus Discovery:
Uranus was discovered by William Herschel in 1781. A French astronomer had actually sighted Uranus twelve times on earlier occasions, but he didn’t have the courage of his convictions and was blocked in the fixed idea that Saturn was the outer planet! There’s a warning there about how NOT to handle a Uranus Transit!!!
Uranus’ discovery was at a time of Revolutions in France: republican and anti-clerical. It was at the time when the USA broke free from British Empire colonialism, and it was also at the time of the Industrial Revolution.
Uranus actually has an energy of revolution and breakthrough, and indeed there’s more about it that is different from the other planets of this Solar System in that its very motion is eccentric and different from the other planets in that it rolls along its orbit. And also, the electric energy of Uranus is different from all the other planets, in that its electromagnetic expression is not located at the pole of rotation like the other planets, and it energy emission is sporadic in bursts as compared to the steady emission of North Polar magnetic energy that characterises our own planet: Earth.
So it was in 1781 that Uranus entered the human consciousness, and so now we have to be able to perceive how Uranus operates as a deliverer of our individual karma, how to work with his gifts and challenges, and how to heal ourselves in the areas he points his finger at, and how to empower.
Yes, we must heal and work with negative karmas which we have built up. But we also start this life with many beneficial karmas to assist us and support us, and most importantly: there are also very special sparks of skill and gifts and golden reapings from past lives which we incarnate with this time, to develop yet further.
So, in this video bog we identify what sorts of challenges Uranus brings us, what traumas, what transformations, but also what gifts and beneficence. We learn how to perceive his karmic role, how to heal our negative karmas, how to make golden reaping around the special talent that Uranus points to in our birth chart and in our predictive astrology.
2B. Uranus’ Nature as Lord of Karma:
Force of creation. He re-creates us.
He seeds the Earth Goddess, Gaia. He seeds us with his inspiration.
He is Sky God of storms, Lightning and Inspiration. He brings us inspiration.
Futuristic. Prophetic. Enlightened. He gives us the big picture and the energy and vision to map our better path ahead.
Difference, revolution, divine Rebellion. Breakout. He calls us to break from the mould and embody our rifference.
The Liberator. Reforming. Pioneering. Iconoclastic. He liberates us from our Saturn-imposed and us-imposed limits and imprisonment.
Creating alternative realities. He calls us to our creativity.
Magnetic. Generative. Inventive, innovative. Excitement. Independence. Freedom. Cosmic. Pioneering. Shocking. All these qualities infuse our consciousness and suffuse our actions and plans and our ability to stand up for themselves.
The Trickster. We may well try ingenious and back-handed ways of breaking out of our chains and creating our advantage.
Technology and creativity. Definitely it and tools may more so come our way.
The Tower Card in the Tarot. The tower card in the tarot is when lightning breaks the walls of the tower we live in. but did we not realise that tower was our prison and we are better off ranging free from it?
And did you know I am producing an on-line Tarot Course. Watch out for its release in about six months’ time!
Mentally overloaded. Scattered. Half-finished projects. Definitely!
Disappointed in their creation. It’s a danger. Don’t forget to avoid treating people in the Uranian way with no value, love or respect.
Unable to relax – dig the garden!
Angry. Fanatic .Devouring, inhuman and wired. Well, a guy has got to get done what he has to get done, hasn’t he (Actually, no: he must also be kind and caring!)
Sudden, explosive, impatient, ungrounded, deadly and cruel. Frustrating, angry, over-bearing. Frantic, hurtful. Turbulent. Well, I am only being a bit like this!
Iconoclasm. What’s wrong with that?
Alienated. Cast-out. What’s new?
Now, go to Uranus Pt. 3: Uranus Astrology: in part 3 we look at the way to analyse the Astrology of Uranus, natally and predictively. And we look at the issue of whether the karmic impact of Uranus is fated, or whether we can do something to perceive, understand and then change/transform the effect of Uranus in our life.
In addition, there are supporting videos, such as this Introduction Video, and also videos dealing with astrological techniques and Healing methods.
As background to the series, please see my Video/Blog: Lords of Karma 1: Introduction.
This video and blog tells you all about the series and introduces how to understand how each of the thirteen planets in your birth chart as a Lord of Karma.
1A. Uranus – Myth:
Are you really and truly ready and equipped to meet the Uranus energy that will smash you blocks and bring revolution and inspirational opening into your life?
We start off with study of the Myth of Uranus. Ancient Myth is often such a powerful guide to the Truths of Human Life:
Throughout this Lords of Karma series, we very much value the role of myth as a guide to our understanding our Karma. We look at the Vedic and ancient Greek myths, and Uranus comes out a lot more beneficial in the Vedic myths than he does with the ancient Greeks.
Uranus Myth in the Vedic Astrology:
The mythic understanding of Uranus given by Vedic Astrology, centres on the God, Varuna. Varuna is a Sky God. He is described as a Creator in the rog Veda. He is the Lord of the Waters Above. He gives the life-giving rain. Due to him, trees, flowers and crops flourish. He is the Keeper of Cosmic Law. In 600 BC, Zarathustra made him Ahura Mazda: Lord of Light.
Uranus Myth in the Greek Pantheon:
To the ancient Greeks, Uranus was the Sky Father. The Greeks has it right when they told how Uranus was married to the Earth Goddess Gaia, and how Uranus as a sky God was dissatisfied by many of the children Gaia bore him: ugly, not quite good enough, not up to the ideal, etc. he was disappointed in his creation – and so he returned them to their mother’s womb! He imprisoned them. This shows the guiding insight offered by myth in understanding the way the planets work as our Karma. Indeed, Gaia got so upset at his treatment of their children, that she sheltered Saturn or Cronos until he was called, until he was big enough, and Saturn then castrated his father Uranus with a sickle. And where Uranus’ severed genitals fell on the sea foam, off Paphos, Aphrodite was born. But where Uranus’ severed genitals fell on land, beings too dreadful to name were born. So, these were referred to as the ‘Kindly Ones’, in case you said their name, because if you say their name, they might come to you! But note and take care that their true name is spelled in English translation as the F u r i e s, and it was these dread beings who pursued Oedipus across the face of the Earth, when he lived out his dreadful and prophesied karma. He sought to avert it. But in seeking to avert it, he walked right into it. And his karma was that he slept with his mother and killed his father. Destinies can’t be escaped by evasion. They have to be worked with. Love and forgiveness is the only real key – hard and impossible though that may seem.
And as for Uranus’ son and usurper: Saturn, or Cronos, Saturn became a dictator to his children and Saturn was later trapped by Zeus and sent to Tartarus!
Prometheus: is another important Archetype for the Karmic Energy of the Plant Uranus:
Prometheus was a Titan who taught humans art and sciences and he also taught humans to take the best part of the sacrifice to eat, rather than consuming that in the sacrificial fire as offering to the Olympian Gods as had been the spiritual practise hitherto, just leaving the humans the gristle.
And then Prometheus went further. He climbed to the top of Mount Olympus with a fennel in his hand, and let the top of the fennel catch fire when the chariot of the Sun went overhead on its daily journey, and then actually brought that fire from heaven down to the foot of the Mountain and gave it to humanity for the evolution of their culture. The Gods were outraged, and Zeus sentenced Prometheus to be chained to a rock where and eagle pecked out his intestines in agony every day, but every night they grew again, only to be devoured once more by the eagle, day after day.
However: in the story now: Chiron arises: after ages had passed, Chiron arrived and sacrificed himself in order to liberate Prometheus from his terrible and cruel sentence.
