Uranus enters Vedic Aries July and August 2016 and beyond

Uranus enters Vedic Aries : Difficult energies July and August 2016 and beyond : What will it take for your revolution to flower ?

As I have said before in my blog posts, I feel that the mesh of difficult energies running from January 2016 until the end of January 2017 need to be understood with reference to the point  where Uranus enters Vedic Aries. See the charts at the end of this post.

If we can perceive these difficult energies clearly, then we can recognize when they are affecting our emotions and our patterns and our thoughts.

All my readings and courses combine western with Vedic Astrology if this is wished for, and I feel that the fact that the ‘western astrology planet’ Uranus has entered into the Vedic sign of Aries really, really does need to be understood. It is one of four difficult energies that you really do need to be alert for, understand and, yes: Be open to the positive power of.

The things to notice from the Now chart for today 21st July 2016 (shown below in both western and Vedic Astrology) are:

difficult energies

A terrorist attack

1. The Jupiter – Rahu (Jupiter-North Node) conjunction is transiting through Vedic Leo in the heavens. It was exact on the day of the UK Referendum on the membership of Britain within the EU. The Jupiter-Rahu energy can be validly expansionary – but only if you know what you are doing. But in the wrong consciousness, it’s florid and ungrounded and it’s xenophobic and even dark, and of course Neptune is opposite it in the heavens bringing in illusion in the wrong hands. So we are all feeling the shreds of surrounding darkness and the fundamentalism and the giddy ungrounded expansionariness. Coupled with the next transit I will be mentioning, the Saturn-Mars conjunction, the Jupiter-Rahu conjunction can be fundamentalist or terrorist. I need not say more!

2. Second, and more harsh and deadly and frustrating than the Jupiter Rahu transiting conjunction, Saturn is still retrograde in Vedic Scorpio.  And Mars, having retrograded back briefly into Vedic Libra has now rejoined Saturn in Scorpio. We have the transiting Saturn-Mars conjunction in Vedic Scorpio. Now these two hate each other and at their worst bring concentration camp energy, death and great frustration. As I said, Saturn is Retrograde now, and Saturn does not turn Direct until 13th August. So, dependent of course on our own individual charts, we’ll feel great frustration until then, and beyond.

3. Indeed things don’t actually really get better or easier until the end of January 2017. This is because Kal Sarpa Yoga reigns in the heavens just after the above two difficult transits have dissipated.
Kal Sarpa Yoga is where all the planets are enclosed between the two Nodes of the Moon: Rahu and Ketu, North Node and South Node – and this formation leaves the Moon very unsupported when it is out on its own away from the rest of the planets for half the time in each month, and this can make our minds and emotions unstable.

4. But fourthly, and maybe the worst of all, but not taken into account by most Vedic Astrologers: Uranus has just entered the Vedic sign of Aries.
Uranus entered Vedic Aries on 27th June 2016.
Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the sun, so a taste of the jarring deadliness of Uranus in Vedic Aries is what was happening then: the rise of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.
And Adolf Hitler had his Sun in Vedic Aries: the ideal man to deliver the dreadful shafts of this energy.
My Moon is in the last degree of Vedic Pisces. My partner, Maggie Pashley’s Moon is in the 2nd degree of Vedic Aries. Uranus has transited across my Moon and is closing on hers. So for us Uranus has brought many driven energies and even emigration! But in the wrong hands, Uranus is Titan energy. See the pics!
Uranus titan 2

So what I’m saying is that we all have to develop awareness of the state of our minds. Positively, the energy of Uranus entering Vedic Aries is Judgement: the summing up of the matter:

uranus enters vedic aries


In fact at this time especially we all have to develop awareness of the state of our ‘Mind’ (capital M), of our consciousness.

We absolutely must ask ourselves ‘whose are these feelings?’ Our minds might be picking up on the feelings ofothers floating around.

We may need to practise Mantra each morning to stabilise our Mind.

But we should embrace revolution. Revolution is about the needed Death of the old and – Rebirth!!!

I was nearly in tears at the newsagent a few mornings ago reading about Turkey, Islamicist conflict there and Turkish refugees, the chaos of BREXIT, the possibility of Scottish cessation from the UK, the new UK Prime Minister beefing about the problem of the ‘internal border’ with southern Ireland (as she called it), shootings in USA, just to name a few.

I went home and did 108 Mantra to Shiva in front of our beautiful brass Shiva Murthi (statue) with candles lit. And regular Mantra is so good to stabilise my mind and help me to monitor it. And then of course there is all the very different range of healing and empowerment modalities we may need to choose from.
Shiva Nataraja
So above all, we do need to realize the ‘weather warning’: we need to know clearly that the energies will be frustrating and fraught all this time for the rest of the year, and so we must not to go into the pit of despair. But instead we must use this astrological declaration to arise from out of the ashes of despair.

The leaden deadness of the Saturn Retrograde is being felt now. But this can be used for your Blessing in that you are tying up loose ends: that special Saturn gift!


But above all we should ask what would to take to be open: be open to the positive revolution that Uranus can now bring????

My partner Maggie Pashley teaches Access Consciousness. See: www.maggiepashley.com

I always combine my astrology readings and courses with openness to approaches of healing and empowerment. See www.starwheelastrology.com and www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com.

Get a reading or join one of my astrology courses now.

Ask: what would it take to be open to the greater You ?

I have found the combination of astrology and these healing modalities so empowering. I feel they really help me develop my perception AND become the spark I was born to be and shake off the diminishing, disempowering invisibility scripts of my upbringing.

Vedic Astrology has truly immense and powerful Declaration, though it can be used in a way that is formulaic and disempowering.

In western astrology I use psychodynamic astrology and Evolutionary Astrology. I personally find that it is through combining the two that we get the fullest declaration of our birth chart and our predictive time ahead.

So what has Uranus entering the Vedic sign of Aries meant for us? Our personal revolution is that we are now emigrating to the far West of Ireland, near Westport, where Maggie will now connect with and work in many Irish centres, and I will add in Druid Forest school and Shamanic events and retreats, and where we will of course continue all our worldwide work as well. Here is the view from our new home:

Hear the dates of successful periods for you in 2016.

What sort of success should you aim for?

Hear how to maximise your success?

Hear how to heal and empower?

Important news in a difficult year!

good fortune 5For example, between 27th June 2016 and 7th November 2016 the favourable Adhi Yoga is created in the heavens for some. Adhi Yoga is a special yoga in the amazing, sure, inspired and powerful Vedic Astrology – a yoga which gives success and wealth, rise in position or respect, when it occurs either in the birth chart or by transit.

There are other possibilities in the predictive astrology for the year ahead for a more fortunate energy to run in your life, but this blog post focuses on Adhi yoga as an example.

good fortune 3Adhi Yoga transit is an exceptional period for making progress – both professionally and financially. Adhi Yoga will give you better ability to inspire trust and respect in others and increase the benign and philanthropic facets of your nature.

Adhi Yoga is a beneficial yoga where benefics Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are in the 6th, 7th and 8th House from your natal Moon or Ascendant. (The Ascendant is called Lagna in Vedic Astrology).

Whether or not you have Adhi Yoga affecting you by transit, it is a really good idea to get one of my expert predictions> My predictions always include both western and Vedic Astrology. They always included a recorded interview held worldwide by Skype or Zoom and can include reports depending on the option you select.

2016 is a year of very difficult energies and it is a good idea to get a prediction whatever your birth chart.

And my predictions always offer links to healing and empowerment modalities.

As I said, Adhi Yoga is created in 2016 between 27th June and 7th November and at different times in that period, this valuable and powerful yoga will affect different people.

2016 is a difficult year of very tense, driven and torsion energies for many people. This is due to three difficult transits in particular, so it is a very good idea to also get news of when your success can manifest!

The three difficult transits of 2106 are:
1. The Saturn Mars transit in Vedic Scorpio from February to September.
2. The Jupiter Rahu (North node) transit in Leo from January to August.
3. The Kal Sarpa Yoga (all the transiting planets encased between the Nodes of the Moon) from 28th September 2016 to end January 2017. See my first and second Blog post on the subject of Kal Sarpa Yoga.

good fortune 4I personally have found many difficulties in 2016 for example tortuous situations coming from my adoptive family. I used this information about the favourable Adhi Yoga Transit upcoming as part of my decision making on really very big issues – like the very frightening and difficult whether to contest a Will and the death and rebirth decision to emigrate to Ireland.

The strength of results you will experience from Adhi Yoga will depend on strength of your Moon/Lagna. The type of results will depend on your birth chart and also on how your predictive periods (the immensely powerful Dasas of Vedic Astrology) and the other transits of this period in 2016 are affecting you personally at the key times.

The prediction also has to take into account how, if at all, you will be affected for good or otherwise by the eclipses at this time on 18th August, and 1st September and 16th September 2016.

Get a prediction which will specify how opportunity creating transits such as Adhi Yoga affect you in your year ahead.

I will share how best to use your transit as a key part of your year ahead, whether to make your focus for wealth or creativity, and, most importantly how to heal and empower yourself so as to get best results.

Astrology: Jo Cox MP assassinated in EU Referendum and the Orlando Killings: The self-defeating dark reaping of the obsessional and murderous astrological energies of 2016

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

There has been an obsessional murder of a British Member of Parliament, Jo Cox, which leads me to predict that the Brexit campaign for Britain to leave the EU will probably be derailed to an extent, because Brexit will be linked to rather dark obsessional whipping up of emotions. I predict that the Referendum whether Britain should leave Europe will now be swung more in favour of Remain. Brexit was ahead in the polls before the assassination. Campaigning has been suspended. I predict that the murder will now swing the British Public into a less inflamed state of consciousness (which is actually whay Jo Cox was campaigning for). In this post we look at the astrology of obsession and violence that is current now from two negative transits (Saturn-Mars and Jupiter-Rahu/North Node and we also look at Tools for healing; tools for defusing the tendency to get caught up in other people’s obsessions and manipulations.

The challenge facing the British public is that the Jupiter – Rahu (North Node) conjunction (see definition below) will actually be exact on referendum day, and so the British public could still be caught up in the obsessional dark energy despite many of them ‘seeing the light’ from the xenophobic tragic killing.

On December 8th 2015, I predicted a link between fundamentalist obsession and killing for 2016: See: http://blog.starwheelastrology.com/2015/12/08/indications-for-war-in-2016/

My prediction has come true: not least with two obsessionally-driven murderous events:
a. The killing of British Member of Parliament Jo Cox, as part of the increasingly vicious run up to the The UK’s EU referendum is on 23 June on whether Britain should leave the EU or stay.
b. The Orlando massacre in USA a few days earlier.

This post both looks at the astrology of these two violent obsessional events.

And in its concluding paragraph my partner Maggie Pashley shows how obsessional or violent energies can be dealt with and handled in a way that defeats and goes beyond their destructiveness and darkness.

Maggie Pashley works together with Michael conneely to offer worldwide healing and empowerment sessions including working with material brought up in astrology readings and courses: www.maggiepashley.com.

At the end of this Post Maggie mentions two very effective ‘tools’ from one of her many healing modalities: ‘Access Consciousness’.

I actually made this prediction of obsessional or fundamentalist violence coming in 2016 for two main reasons:
a. Jupiter-Rahu: Because Jupiter and Rahu (North node) would be both transiting together in the Vedic astrology sing of Leo, from 30th January until 11th August 2016,  creating a potentially dark, dangerous and driven obsessional combination known as ‘Guru Chandala Yoga’.
b. Mars-Saturn: Because the two malefics; Mars and Saturn would be transiting together from 21st February until 18th June 2016, and then again from 12th July to 18th September 2016, in the intense Mars-ruled Vedic sign of Scorpio, creating an energy of oppression and death.
But then there’s a third malefic configuration which will affect the world in this difficult year:
c. Kal Sarpa Yoga: Don’t think that the energies of 2016 get much easier after the Jupiter-Rahu and the Mars-Saturn two transiting conjunctions have ended in August and September respectively. From 28thSeptember 2016 there’s something awfully special and new:, all the planets in the heavens are one side of the Rahu – Ketu axis (this is the North node-South Node axis). What this means, as I pointed out in my Blog Post dated 3rd May 2016, Kal Sarpa Yoga starts! https://blog.starwheelastrology.com/2016/05/03/donald-trump-astrology-from-michael-conneely-post-no-3-the-divisive-serpent-gets-bigger/

Kal Sarpa Yoga is a divisive energy where all the planets are caught between the Nodes of the Moon. It does not really end until the end of January 2017 so it will have a big effect on the US Presidential election. And by weird and unfortunate coincidence, this Kal Sarpa Yoga divisive energy also exists in Donald Trump’s birth chart – and it exists in the heavens as well at the same time! As above, so below! What a coincidence! What on earth will it mean??

British MP Murdered: So now I want to look at the assassination of British Member of Parliament Jo Cox that took place 16th June 2016 at 13.48 hrs in her Birstall constituency during the final days of run up in the torrid and virulent UK Referendum due to be held the following week on 23rd June. whether to leave the EU. Here’s a photo of Jo Cox:
Jo Cox Parliament Square






As he shot her three times and stabbed her, her alleged killer: shy and reclusive 52 year old Tommy Mair shouted ‘Put Britain First’. Here’s a photo of the alleged assasin:

Jo Cox Tommy Mair








Ironically, the obsessional killer has probably achieved the very opposite of what he thought.

I suspect the British people will actually now sense that the anti-EU campaign is tinged with obsessional and vitriolic unhealthy energies.

I write this even though there are of course some good reasons to say that Britain’s membership of the EU carries some bad consequences for Britain.

But I do believe the effect of Jo Cox MPs murder may well, ironically, be that the referendum vote will be swung against current trends for ‘Brexit’ and instead the British people will now vote for Britain to stay in the EU.

And maybe the ideals of worldwide community will have more sway if there’s a feeling that the bubble of contention and in-fighting has been burst by this tragedy.

Jo Cox’s UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said, “We have lost a much-loved colleague, a real talent and a dedicated campaigner for social justice and peace.’ Tragically she leaves behind her husband and two little children.

In this Post I draw on both western and Vedic Astrology. In fact all my Astrology Readings draw comprehensively and expertly on both astrologies. My courses in Vedic Astrology include western astrology cross-over and my course in western astrology include Vedic astrology if wished.  And there’s always the belief that astrological perception can be linked to healing modalities.

So let’s look first at Jo Cox’s birth chart:

Jo Cox Birth Chart

Next, look at Jo Cox’s death chart. What do we see? Here’s her western astrology death chart: 16th June 2016 at 13.48 hrs, Birstall, UK:

Jo Cox Death Chart

Next, let’s put the two charts together. Here’s the ‘bi-wheel chart’: Her death chart outside, her birth chart inside:
Jo Cox Death Natal Biwheel chart

And lastly let’s look at the Vedic Astrology for the moment of her death:
Jo Cox Death Chart vedic

What do we see? Well, clearly in the Vedic death chart we see the two transiting conjunctions that I predicted last year would bring obsessional and fundamentalist killing in 2016:


Jupiter-Rahu: Note that the obsessional and dark Jupiter-Rahu (North Node) conjunction that I spoke about above has very, very nearly reached its exactness. It actually becomes exact at 22.45 hrs on 24th June.
Mars-Saturn: The oppressive and deathly Saturn Mars conjunction is still in force. Mars actually drops back into Vedic Leo briefly from 18th June to 12th July.

So, this is an obsessional murderous reaping of the astrological energies I described in my prediction last year.

And as I said, I personally feel that the killing will actually prove to be self-defeating because the British will react against that horrible energy and vote to stay in the EU.

Ironically, campaigning has been suspended at the moment for the referendum and political leaders are due to visit the scene of her death. An acid and virulent debate has been cut short! Hopefully a bubble has been burst?

Note from the western astrology chart for the moment of Jo Cox’s death that in the heavens, opposite the Jupiter-Rahu conjunction is the Neptune –Ketu conjunction. The Neptune-Ketu conjunction is deeply mystical in the charts of healers; but in lower consciousness individuals it manifests instead as the twisted torsion of delusion.

It is noteworthy that the Jupiter Rahu conjunction and its opposition Neptune Ketu conjunction that’s in the heavens’ is exactly conjunct Jupiter in her birth chart. If we had space to go into the gestalt of her death astrology, I would demonstrate the great significance of this.

It is also noteworthy that Uranus is transiting in the heavens opposition to her natal Uranus (and indeed, transiting Uranus is conjunct her natal Chiron).

And the other question is: is there something in the birth chart of Jo Cox that attracted violent death?  Well, very answering quite superficially, yes: she has Mars on her Ascendant which can attract violence (and is quite pugnacious).

The Orlando Massacre:

Let’s end this exploration of the predicted obsessional and violent astrology of 2016 by also looking at another obsession-driven incident of murder: The Orlando Massacre.

On 12th June 2016, from 02.02 am to 04.00am, in Orlando Florida, Omar Mateen aged 29, born in New York on November 16, 1986 of Afghan immigrant parents, murdered 49 gay people and wounded many others at a gay nightclub.

Partly this was obsessional reaction to his denied gay sexuality, and partly it was connected to Islamic fundamentalism.

It is reported that Mateen vented on Facebook before and during the massacre: “America and Russia stop bombing the Islamic state,” the gunman wrote, according to the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. “You kill innocent women and children by doing us airstrikes … now taste the Islamic state vengeance.”

Then, in his final post, an ominous warning: ”In the next few days you will see attacks from the Islamic state in the USA.”

In the middle of killing 49 people, Mateen also called 911 to pledge allegiance to the terror group and he called CNN News to say, “I did it for ISIS. I did it for the Islamic State.” An analysis of Mateen’s electronic devices showed searches for jihadist propaganda, including videos of ISIS beheadings.

Here is Omar Mateen’s birth chart: November 16, 1986, New York (TOB not known: Noon chart used):
Omar Mateen birth chart

(Note that his Full Moon in his birth chart is square Mars).

And here is the chart for the Orlando Massacre: 12th June at 02.02 am Orlando, Florida:

Orlando Massacre chart

Note that, yes, this chart too has both the transiting Jupiter – Rahu conjunction and the transiting Mars – Saturn conjunction, the subject of the prediction I made last year.


MAGGIE BEST JUNE 16When faced with such violence expressed against innocent people it is natural to feel outraged and shocked, to feel compassion for those left bereaved, to mourn for the lives cut short.

It’s easy to feel angry and want to lash back at the perpetrators of the violence but when did revenge anger ever help?

And Jo Cox’s husband has himself appealed for people to honour his wife by resisting hitting back and focussing on creating the kind of world his wife campaigned for – for more peace and compassion.

So let me share some tools I use to cope with all the mixed emotions that get stirred up in me by these difficult energies. They come from an approach called Access Consciousness, one of the many healing modalities I use worldwide.  which offers practical tools to help open up greater awareness and choice.

Tool 1: Who does this belong to?

If you find yourself feeling very angry, sad, confused or any other strong emotion you automatically assume it’s yours because you are experiencing it.

But we pick up lots of different energies from those around us, we absorb thoughts and feelings from our family and friends, from the media, from our culture that isn’t really ours.

So ask ‘Who does this belong to?’

The next time you feel caught up in strong emotions and see if you don’t begin to feel lighter, or freer…you might have to ask a few times but if you begin to feel something lifting, it means it wasn’t yours and you can simply ask ‘Return to sender to consciousness attached’ – you don’t need to know who is came from.

If you do get that it is yours; You can ask “What energy, space and consciousness can I be to make the best choices I can here/to see this differently/to bring about more peace and understanding etc.

You aren’t looking for an immediate answer you are inviting in greater awareness and possibilities. You are asking to go beyond a reactive kick-back response. And it’s not about being a doormat, you might get the awareness to take decisive action or come up with a solution or a way of seeing that you’d never considered before.

People who become obsessional and violent are most certainly taking on board a whole host of judgements from other people and allowing themselves to get whipped up in a whirlpool of hatred.

Tool 2 What energy can I be that would contribute to the world I want to live in?

Again this is an invitation question, not one looking for a immediate one-line answer. If you want to live in a more peaceful, kinder world you might become aware of all the ways you judge yourself or your family or those around you and make a choice to be kinder and open to communicating differently, not forcing or pressurising yourself. Even apparently little steps can make a big difference, create a ripple effect in the world.

Thinking about the world you are creating by the choices you are making today can help you make those apparently small steps: If I choose this what would my life be like in five/ten/fifteen ..you name it years time? and thinking of a different option: If I choose this what would my life be like in five/ten/fifteen ..you name it years time? – which feels lighter, freer, more expansive. That’s where life is calling you.

When Uranus strikes your Moon: Transit of Uranus conjunct the Moon in your birth chart

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Uranus is transiting conjunct the Moon in my birth chart. This transit can only happen once every 84 years. Uranus takes 84 years to orbit round the Sun, so he can only transit conjunct your moon in your birth chart once in a life-time at most.

And when it happens, it’s like the Struck Tower Card in the Tarot.

Here is a computer-generated ‘one-size fits all’ brief indicator of what to expect. And I’m using the example of my own astrology because it’s happening to me now:

Exact 29 May 2016, Exact 1 Oct 2016, Exact 20 Mar 2017

‘This transit brings unexpected emotional upsets during which you will break down old emotional patterns and experience new freedom. During this time of discovery you will learn that the old ways are not necessarily the best ways. This may involve breaking away from parental or authoritarian influences. You will feel an urge to explore your own feelings. The path to emotional freedom may not be smooth. You may undergo times of uncertainty, frustration, moodiness and irritation as you attempt to change your patterns of behaviour. Your loved ones may not immediately respond positively to your need for change. Your home life may be in disarray. However, your intuition is strong during this transit and you can use your inner knowledge to pursue an emotionally-fulfilling path which respects both your needs and the needs of loved ones.’

Well, obviously the frustration, moodiness and irritation don’t apply to me personally – well, at least that’s my story!!!

Here’s the graph of the timing of my Uranus to Moon transit so you can see how it works. So first of all Uranus goes forward over my natal Moon, then he retrogrades back over my natal Moon, then he heads forward again and passes over my natal Moon for the last time to head on round the zodiac on his 84-year orbit:

Michael Graphed Transits 2016
Michael Graphed Transits 2017

So, here’s my ‘Uranus to Moon Transit’ story, and how I believe I have turned round what felt like cataclysm at the time, for good and for better!

uranus transits moonWhat happened is that my (adoptive) family suddenly blew apart. My very elderly adoptive mother had a sudden fall and it was all decided that day, without my knowing, that she go to live with my adoptive sister several hundred miles away. And this was in circumstances that were just like King Lear! As you can imagine, I got the nasty Texts and the bossy letters! It’s been a difficult adoption. This is what my soul chose for me this life time. My Moon is actually in a special condition called Gandanta in Vedic Astrology, so these events were ‘meant’ and for my hard learning. Gandanta moon means that ‘Mother will not be there for you’ and its divine intention is that out of such a difficult karmic knot that can only tighten every time you try to loosen it, you in fact learn to stand up for yourself.

At the same time as the fall, I decided to contest a Will made by my adoptive brother. He had made it secretly just before his death in an alcoholic dementia unit, despite the fact that what’s called a ‘Statutory Will’ had been made some years beforehand by the Court of Protection.

He had dedicated the last two years of his life to seeking to disinherit me following one of his earlier Care Homes who later kicked him out, calling me in to take action on his shoplifting alcohol and his being aggressive to staff, etc. Unsurprisingly this made me unpopular with him!!!

In his sixth and final replacement Care Home, as he was dying, he found an ambitious young solicitor with all the expenses of setting up his own firm at that time. And this young solicitor secretly made a replacement Will for my brother to overturn the Statutory Will, telling my brother that although he was mad when the Statutory Will was made, ‘but you’re sane now’.

The ambitious young solicitor the new Will on the basis of a simple tick box test for sanity administered by a General Practitioner doctor, whereas the Statutory Will had been made with the involvement of four consultant psychiatrists! Needless to say: the new Will disinherited me.

It was a shock to me to find out when he died just afterwards that a new Will had been made. And I feel it raises the public interest that this could happen. But I decided that I must stand up for myself and stand up for what I saw as Truth, and contest this new Will. And of course, this made me even more the family target. It’s hard and sad being the sane one in a family! It takes a lot of courage and overcoming fear when all your life you’ve been treated as the invisible one who had to always acquiesce and stand aside.

Tower Card TarotThe Uranus to Moon Transit is like the ‘Struck Tower’ Card in the Tarot.

Magus Tarot CardThe challenge is to make it ‘The Magician instead’!

Interestingly, my partner, Maggie Pashley, who is a very widely qualified healer, also has Uranus transiting her Moon just afterwards. This is because her Moon is just two degrees after my Moon in her birth chart. So my ‘Struck Tower Card Experience’ was shortly to be her ‘Struck Tower Card Experience’.

So, What happened? We both became convinced we must move away from the darkness, and indeed be re-born, and set up in a new life.

We did have some support. For example we have a wonderful group learning the Runes with us in Latvia, and they came up with the Rune Divination that in taking the dangerous challenge I would succeed.

I had a psychic reading/psychic surgery healing from a wonderful woman in the western USA: Elizabeth Hendricks, who had told me that I should visit the rocks of the land of my birth family for healing and empowerment.

My own astrology convinced me I should take the risk and head for my destiny. In my current western astrology there was not just this Transit of Uranus to my Moon. Uranus had also just started to transiting into my 10th House which offers ‘Revolution in Career’, and my ‘Progressed Moon’ was just entering my 4th House which can favour move of home.

My Vedic Astrology was insistent in offering me success. In the wonderful predictive periods of Vedic Astrology, I am in the final sub period of the long Rahu period, or ‘Rahu Dasha’. Rahu is the North Node of the Moon. It’s the indicator of where the thrust of your incarnational destiny is taking you this life-time. Rahu Dasha always ends with the final sub-period of Rahu-Mars, a turbulent ending to a period where you are impelled to make that final push to your incarnational destiny in order to prepare for the next Dasha, which in my case starts this November 2016. The next Dasha in the sequence is always Jupiter:  and it’s Jupiter Dasha, which will bring me the crowing success of my life, snatching this from the teeth of darkness and fear, I feel.

So I am telling you all this, partly to demonstrate what the ‘Transit of Uranus to Moon’ can bring you, and partly to show how I expertly combine both western astrology and Vedic astrology in my astrology readings and courses.

So: what did we decide to do in the face of this ‘Struck Tower’ Uranus to Moon Transit experience?

croagh patrick reek sunday 2014 9Well, we decided to emigrate to Ireland, to Westport in fact. It’s on the beautiful western coastline of Ireland, not far from where my Irish birth family are (who don’t know I exist!).

My partner Maggie Pashley looks forward to a new project of sharing her many healing modalities in different towns and healing centres in Ireland as well as her online worldwide work. I look forward to continuing all my worldwide astrology readings and courses, but I am also looking forward to adding in shamanic, runes and ogham retreats. And I also seek to add in work on the sacred earth of nearby Croagh Patrick Mountain.

I suppose my message arising from this first of three bursts of my Uranus Transit conjunct the Moon in my birth chart, is that you may have to find courage to stand up for yourself. You will have to expect the unexpected. You may need to find healing (and my astrology readings and courses always point to healing modalities to bring out the best in what your astrology describes.

There were lots of synchronicities and special omens. It’s worth mentioning a chance seeing of the film Winter’s Tale in New York also meant a lot to me as the shock initially dawned: the film’s story is that we are each born to manifest our special talent. If we do this, we go on into the Light, which in fact joins all living beings, except that there are some beings dedicated to the darkness whose mission it is to stop souls heading to their light. A White Horse appears as rescuer at key moments.

And so my Uranus to Moon transit experience convinces me that above all you must aim for that special spark for which you incarnated: the special quality or achievement in your life that you came here to be and do.

Sade Sate when Saturn transits over your Moon: This happens to Donald Trump in December 2016: Will it ruin his chances?

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Sade Sate is the seven and a half year period in Vedic Astrology when Saturn transits over your Moon.

It happens exact to Donald Trump in December 2016: the center of his Sade Sate period.

Will it ruin his chances?

Donald Trump has been riding high recently and election pundits are warning people not to disregard his chances of winning.

One of the big astrological indicators of his success at this time (May 2016) is because the Sun is in the Vedic astrology sign of Aries. Donald Trump’s rising sign in Vedic Astrology is Leo. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and Sun has been exalted in Vedic Aries, and Sun will stay Exalted until Sun enters Vedic Taurus on May 14th.

However, in terms of what’s called Ashtakavarga, the powerful Vedic Astrology measure of how a planet does in any particular sign, well, Donald Trump has a good score for Sun in Taurus, so I think the success will continue, and note from his Vedic birth chart shown below that Vedic Taurus is actually his Sun’s own Sun-sign in his Vedic astrology birth chart.

But the big issue to consider is the fact that Donald Trump is in Sade Sate.

Sade Sate is the accurate and difficult Vedic Astrology Teaching of Saturn transiting the Moon in your birth chart.

There are three sign phases to Sade Sate: when Saturn transits the sign before the sign that the Moon occupies in your birth chart, when Saturn transits the sign the Moon occupies in your birth chart, and when Saturn transits the sign after that.
Sade Sate affects all of us when Saturn transits over our Moon in our birth chart.

It takes Saturn twenty eight to twenty-nine years to orbit the Sun. He thus takes two and a half years to transit each sign. So the whole experience of Sade Sate, when Saturn transits through three signs actually lasts seven and a half years.

Donald Trump’s Sade Sate period started when Saturn entered Vedic Libra in October 2011. The start of Sade Sate is intense because the mind is very affected at that point. Sade Sate then gets easier, though it then gets really tough when Saturn is on top of the natal Moon, and there’s also a sting in the tail at the end of Sade Sate.

Saturn is transiting exact on Donald Trump’s Moon on 30th December 2016, and on 20th August 2017 and 29th August 2017 (so in August 2017 his Sade Sate experience will be really intense: but will he be in power then or out of power?)

saturn planet 2So, what is the Sade Sate period like? Sade Sate is like going down into a pit, cut off from God’s grace, with the divine purpose that we can see and learn the limitations of our own unaided personality and incarnation.
The turning point when Saturn ceases to go down into the pit and starts to rise up out of it. This is when Saturn actually transits across the Moon in your birth chart.
You will be needing to let certain things die in your life during your Sade Sate period in order to re-organise your psyche, your beliefs and your associations and lifestyle, in order to be more immediately connected to the divine.
The more pride and fixity or illusion about themselves a person has during Sade Sate, the more they suffer.
You will best need to deal with turbulence or depression of the mend, for example thorough mantra and healing modalities. And note that in the time before the exact transit, there will be risk of false complacency.

You can book an astrology reading with me if you are approaching or in Sade Sate and the insight and advice I will give you will be accurate and immense.

But, to return to Donald Trump: in Donald Trump’s case, will this ‘descent into the pit’ mean that Donald Trump will lose the election?

Might it alternatively mean that he will simply take on the world with more pride and ferocity as he digs himself in and win the US Presidency through all the wrong ways?

This is the fourth Post of mine about Donald Trump and what drives him and whether he is likely to win the US Presidential Election. Hve a look at the others, and read future posts to find out what will happen.

Blog Post 1 started this series off in a reasonably light-hearted way, noting that in terms of western psychodynamic astrology, Donald Trump actually has a ‘Megaphone’ chart Aspect Shape in his western astrology birth chart. This will obviously come as a surprise to everyone!
Blog Post 2, however, got more worrying because it was noted that Donald Trump has a very divisive chart shape in his Vedic Astrology birth chart: He has ‘Kal Sarpa Yoga’. All his planets are enclosed by the Serpent: all are enclosed between the Nodes of the Moon.
Blog Post 3 noted that this ‘Kal Sarpa Yoga’ divisive serpent energy is not only in the chart of Donald Trump as US presidential candidate. Amazingly, by coincidence, it is also at the same time mirrored in the heavens as well! What a terrible coincidence!

Read my future posts to find out about Donald Trump’s chances and his meaning for the world, and to read about a lot of advanced astrology techniques.

Frightful Full Moon 21.5.2016 : Hear about it and prepare

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

There is a very difficult Full Moon on May 21st. the pressure on our minds and emotions will be intense.

This will especially be true if we are Cancer risers who are ruled by the Moon or if we have a lot of planets in Vedic Cancer, Scorpio or Taurus, but all of us will feel the bite of this Full Moon.

We can quite simply get enchained in complicated thoughts or emotions and make wrong decisions and hurt ourselves and others.

Seriously, I mean this: what are you going to do to deal with this???

The value of astrology warning like this is to keep the page blank in your diary on such a day and be careful the days either side. Avoid starting or doing things on days with churning, malefic energy like this one. Strive to be conscious. Strive to plan. Strive to heal difficult feelings that arise at this time: they are wanting to be headed; that’s why they are arising.

Forewarned is forearmed. Use this Full Moon as a time to empower, even if you feel vulnerable and at your wits end. Share with your partner. Learn simple healing techniques shown on my websites (see below). At times like this it is a good idea to get an astrology reading. My readings are worldwide and recorded, with very helpful reports and opportunities for questions/discussion. Or if you want depth awareness, join one of my astrology courses (again, see website below).

One thing is: don’t do something now that will cause a chain reaction in your life and in the life of your loved ones. That is so much more difficult to manage.

Below is the western astrology chart for this Full Moon, followed by the Vedic Astrology chart. For the exact time where you live, see: http://www.timeanddate.com/

So, what’s so challenging about it? Why is it a good idea to learn about it and prepare?

Well, first of all, the Moon is very closely conjunct Mars (less than 1 degree). This means you will feel irritable (OK you will explain to your partner it’s not your irritability and it’s really his/hers all along, but the fight that that leads to could be rather sad!)

Secondly Moon and Mars are conjunct: The Moon is at 6 deg Vedic Scorpio which is ruled by Mars, and the Moon is never easy in Scorpio. The Moon is debilitated in Scorpio and full of intensity, hurt and danger often (This Moon is the first degree of Sagittarius in Western astrology).
Look which house this Full Moon falls in in your birth chart; the affairs of that House will be difficult now.
Especially: Look at your Moon Ashtakavarga chart in Vedic Astrology (see my blog post) to see how hard, or alternatively how supported,  the Moon energy hits you and your Mind/emotions whenever the Moon is in Scorpio. Work out if you need to do something to protect your mind during that monthly two and a half day period.

Thirdly, Mars and Saturn are both conjunct in the Vedic sign of Scorpio (yes, ruled by Mars), with Mars at 8 Scorpio and Saturn at 20 Scorpio.
And if you look at the Vedic chart at the foot of this post, you can see that they are opposition the Sun all the time the Sun is in Vedic Taurus – not a nice energy!
Both Mars and Saturn are retrograde, so their energy will carry difficult lessons for you now, including tying up karmic lose ends.
They don’t get exactly conjunct each other until August 24th, so there will be a long run of this difficult Saturn-Mar energy, which is a bit like living in a concentration camp, actually – and we have all been experiencing it all year.

Fourthly, Venus is combust the Sun (4 degrees), so that’s hard for love issues, and especially hard if you have Ascendant/Lagna, Moon or Sun in one of the Sun-ruled signs in your Vedic birth chart (Libra or Taurus)

Fifthly, North Node (Rahu) and Jupiter are both conjunct in Vedic Leo. Rahu conjunct Jupiter is an ambitious and big energy that could bring you success, but beware: with Jupiter-Rahu transiting there is the danger of over-ambition or even rather dark associations, so be careful with how you work with your ambitions.
Jupiter was retrograde until 9th May and we were deprived of his usual blessing and expansion, but of course the full Jupiter energy will sadly not be available to us all until he enters Vedic Virgo on 11th August, indeed all the time he is in Vedic Leo until them, his beneficence will be rather dampened and structured because he is receiving the aspect from Saturn.

Sixth, our friend, Mercury is still retrograde, though he does go direct on May 22nd, though Mercury Retrograde issues mean that you will need to tie up all the loose ends with posts and communications until he gets back to his pre-retrogradation position at 29 degrees Vedic Aries on June 7th.

Importantly, the Moon will cross through the difficult Gandanta Zone at the endo of Vedic Scorpio on May 23rd. Gandanta Zones are difficult degrees of the chart where water signs give way to fire signs. I really feel the bereft hurt of the gandanta energy because my Moon in my birth chart is in a Gandanta Zone, so if you have planets, especially Moon or Sun in your birth chart in the last degree of Vedic Scorpio, you could feel even worse at the time of this Full Moon.
