Astrology Courses: Peerless individually-taught expert Astrology Courses: A special feature of my
work is that in my astrology courses worldwide, I combine both Western Astrology (which is
psychodynamic in its focus) and Vedic Astrology (which is founded on a peerless offering of its
statement of your incarnational life purpose and destiny, your karmas and the special spark you
incarnated to achieve in this lifetime.
I always find myself combining both western and Vedic Astrology in my course teaching and
readings, because you need the vast declaration offered by Vedic Astrology, but you also need the
psychological dimensions of western astrology.
Even western Evolutionary Astrology which describes the effect of your past lives in this lifetime
does so in psychological terms.
And you absolutely must include in your astrological awareness the energetic impacts in your life of
the Outer Planets: The Gods of Change: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – and crucially, of Chiron the
Wounded Healer: depiction of your existential wound in the healing of which you become the Healer
of others.
So, take advantage of this Black Friday Discount (BFCM17) running until Christmas Eve 2017 at midnight, to enroll on my Vedic
Astrology Foundation Course:  More details at this site www.mastervedicastrology.com,
My Vedic Astrology Nakshatras Course where you gain deep study of the wonderful 27-sign Vedic
Lunar Zodiac in your life: www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com,
Or my various advanced Vedic Astrology courses detailed in:
www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com
Please note that the very special and unusual features of my astrology courses are that they are
genuine and authentic because the focus of the teaching is always two charts: yours and mine;
there’s always Vedic Astrology-Western Astrology crossover if you wish for that. And, crucially, the
great astrological perception that is generated is never left at the formulaic: No! It is ALWAYS linked
to Healing and Empowerment possibilities.
And I also teach a Western Psychodynamic Astrology Course at
www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com

DEEPLY LEARNED ASTROLOGY READINGS WITH TAROT AND HEALING:

I offer three grades of magnificent Astrology Readings: 1hr, 90 mins or 2 hrs, with or without my famed extensive and
erudite immensely perceptive reports. You can enroll for one of these, now inclusive of Black Friday
discount until Christmas, at more details on this site regarding Astrology Readings: www.starwheelastrology.com.
And, again: in my readings note that Western and Vedic Astrology are always combined. And there’s

Ogham Alder Intuition and Defence

Michael ConneelyOgham Alder

In this celebration of the Spring Equinox I combine my two inheritances: My heredity on my father’s side is from the Baltic and Yakut tribesman from the North polar shore. My heredity on my mother’s side is for thousands of years from Connemara in County Galway Ireland. And in this Spring Equinox Ritual, I included a rune Journey for us to work on the issue of our self-value and self-worth, and I also included an ogham alder Journey to contact use of intuition.
(If you are looking for an in-depth and comprehensive anlaysis of your DNA genealogy then please click here
We cannot recommend this service enough, it is superb.)

We need both these qualities of self-value and self-worth to be healed and active if, at Spring Equinox, we can indeed rise in our power and expression, aligning to the growing power and brightness of the Sun, which is what the spring Equinox is all about.

We may fail unless we increase our sense of self-worth.
We may fail if we can’t use and trust our intuition, and defend ourself if needed on the basis of our intuition.

The ogham is the mystical alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids, where the principal correspondences for each of the letters of the Ogham Alphabet are the very different energies of the trees.

Learn the Ogham The Tree Alphabet of the ancient Irish Druids

The Ogham is a most powerful and beautiful tool for personal growth and spiritual understanding.

I have learned so much about states of consciousness and life values from the Ogham. It has been so very beautiful to connect with the trees in their wild and natural settings. In fact each letter of the Celtic Ogham alphabet can also be used for healing and empowerment.

The Ogham also introduces you to a genuine and powerful cosmology of the Celtic Otherworlds that interpenetrate this realm: Middle Earth. Your mind explores and encompasses its vast range of consciousness-states.

In its essence, the Ogham is the alphabet of ancient Druid Ireland. There is evidence it may have grown out of ancient tally systems and secret ancient druid hand-signalling. Its deep layers of meaning have been amplified by a number of ancient correspondences systems and frameworks.

You are supported to find your own true path in these courses. They are not imposed. This is totally personal sacred exploration on your part – with all the support you need from me. Here are reports from my very able students of vision world connection to Quert: The Apple Tree:

It feel as if the apple grove, that sweet, heavy scented landscape swaying in the breeze, was lowly humming a lullaby. It talked of past battles, of overcome pains, of the redemptive quality that reach those who have dared to learn and cared not to suffer in exchange, and have gladly paid debts and broken all bondages. The trees stood together, holding and stretching their laden branches, as if hugging each other. The air carried along petals like a harmless snowstorm. The boughs held both blossoms and fully grown, crisp apples. There were no seasons, just a continuous flow of time suspended into eternity where abundance and decay coexisted in an ever revolving cycle.

I could feel presences dancing among the grove, in tune with the music. Presences that left a trail of the aroma of the blossoms that they stirred in their dance. As I leaned below a tree, a ripe apple felt directly on the palm of my hand. Such delight, such juiciness, what a delicate nectar, such generosity embodied in that humble fruit.

I feel grateful that I was able to reach the Apple grove and learn that energies cannot only be restored but are free from shortage. I will take this renewed joy along with me.

How does the Ogham Course work?

For each Ogham letter you receive an audio recording download with information about the letter and the relevant tree, any relevant spiritual weapon, pathway and beings, plus a second audiofile which is a guided meditation with opportunity for trance drumming and chanting and divination.

You can either use our drumming journey, or you can branch out from this and proceed to use your own drumming.

You then correspond with myself as guide, friend and counsellor as your personal spiritual and life-journey progresses, helped through the trees and mystical Celtic Otherworlds.

This correspondence is completely personal and individual to you. The Course is Certificated.

Importantly, each journey always starts (and ends) at your Divine Centre here on Middle Earth, which you learn to visualise.

You also receive maps showing the place of each Ogham pathway in the Celtic Cosmology: the pathway that each letter represents through the Celtic Otherworlds.

Thus, the course is not at all taught with any time-frame in mind. The goal is achieving excellence of the experience, excellence of connection, excellence of utterance, rather than any time table.

People are not advised to study more that an Ogham letter per week, though, as it definitely  takes time for the energy to assimilate with anyone – even in the most foundation way.

The first step is to establish your Divine Centre, your special place of being, where each journey will begin and end, so you start off with a sound file being sent to you to help you do this.

The order of study is that determined by pathways stretching out across the three worlds of ancient Irish cosmology.

In other words, you start with the Ogham tree letters for the four pathways that radiate out from your Divine Centre in the centre of this world, which was called Bith or ‘Middle Earth’.

But progressively you extend further and further outwards from your Divine Centre to the tree letters for the pathways leading to the realms of the Upper World (Magh Mor) and also the realms of the Lower World (Tir Andomain), and ultimately to the letters for journeying across the Upper World and the Lower World.

Please go to my website for more details and to Enroll:

I also read your western and Vedic astrology and bring insights from that into your ogham journey.

And you may like to visit or stay at our Healing Centre in the West of Ireland and do some Ogham work with us here. Just go to the website and see the utter loveliness of this ancient sacred landscape, its beaches, mountains and deeply sacred earth energies:

The Ogham is mystical and profound. It is beautiful and tantalising. The Ogham is very ancient. Its date of origin is unknown as nothing of the Druid wisdom system was written down. However, the earliest inscriptions that have survived are nearly two thousand year old, and there is good evidence for the ogham possibly being several hundred years older than that, and undeniably Irish in its source and origin.

Central to our understanding is that each Ogham alphabet letter or ‘Few’ represents the soul and energy of a tree. But each Few is also a pathway that run across or between the Celtic Otherworlds which are different, sometimes overlapping states of consciousness which are inhabited by their own beings, for example these realms include the famous Tir na N’Og, the land of eternal Youth, or Magh Mell: the state of Abundance, The Plane of Delight.

Ogham, Trees, Language, Cosmic Concepts and the Universal Man

Learn the Ogham, the Mystical Energies of the Trees.

Walk the Ogham Pathways with the Druid Forest School

Join my Worldwide Distance Learning Course in The Ogham:   http://www.druidforestschool.com/ogham.html

On our weekly two days off, Maggie and I love going to the many ancient Woods near our Healing Centre and airbnb in the far West of Ireland. where we now live: http://www.foxfordairbnb.com/ 
I thought I might set out my understanding on a number of points that students write in about.

Firstly, the Ogham medieval manuscripts are our only written source of Ogham understanding. But they codify oral tradition that is very much older. The Ogham letters had a quite number of sets of different correspondences traditionally, but its correspondences to trees were the most important, and the trees are the ones I work with because I love the energy and wisdom of the trees.
The main source of Ogham lore is the Book of Ballymote.
By weird coincidence, Ballymote is a town very near where I live in Co Mayo, Ireland.

The Ogham pathways are envisioned as running across and between the three planes of existence for the ancient Irish: This world (Bith, the upper world and the lower world.
Each of these three planes are envisioned as having four Otherworlds, and the pathways run acrosss and between those otherworlds.
The Ogham tree names have come down to us in Old Irish and Middle Irish, so they are indeed the words of another language. They are pretty different from modern Irish which is sometimes called Gaelic. Languages change a lot over time. Irish is part of the Indo-European group of languages that spread across Eurpope, Asia Minor and North India, The languages all developed out of the one common source called proto-IndoEuropean, and as the indoEuropean peoples invaded outwards away from their original homeland in South Russia, the languages split off from one another and then evolved, so there’s a family tree of IndoEuropean languages. But this means there are quite close similarities between Sanskrit of the Vedic Indians and Gaelic, and also to Old Norse.


Another concept from the ancient Irish Druids that I teach is The Duile: our flesh, the Nine Elements of our Body. We work with a system where the human body, which is inhabited by a spiritual being or soul, is considered to be composed of nine dúile or elements. We study the useful layers of correspondences of these elements to the elements of the cosmos and cosmic order, for example: Bones Stone, Body Earth, Mind The Well of Segais. We identify the balance of the elements of fire, stone, water and air in our life and work using Druid magic or Draíocht and cauldrons to heal and empower using methods including shamanic journeying and embodiment/shape-shifting.
See: http://www.druidforestschool.com/courses.html
And the key point is that the Ogham and the Duile are interrelated in that in the ancient Irish Celtic spirituality, everything is interrelated.
There’s a north American Indian concept of the Web of Life: whatever we do to part of the web we do to the whole of the web.
Both the Irish Druids and the Sanskrit speaking Vedic Indians in North India had a concept of the Cosmic Man or purusha, so in this way our bodies are a mirror of the Cosmos. The Ancient Norse had the same concept. It was from the body of Mimir that Middle earth was formed.
So, All Blessings to you and I look forward to working with you on one of my courses,

Michael
