Worldwide Nakshatras Course

Learn the Power and Beauty of the Nakshatras.

Study with my Nakshatras Vedic Astrology Course, focussing on two great themes:

Part 1: Learn the essential nature of each of the beautiful and powerful Nakshatras: the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology

Part 2: Learn the sophisticated and detailed methods of Nakshatra Interpretation – in the birth chart, predictively and in relationships astrology.


What are the Nakshatras?

Vedic astrology also uses an even more ancient zodiac as well as the traditional twelve Sun Signs: this is the immeasurably powerful lunar zodiac of 27 signs: The Nakshatras.

The Nakshatras depict our realities, our Mind and our emotional natures in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and in a way, that is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful. It is such an eye-opener when you know and understand the nature of the Nakshatra in which each of your planets fall in your Vedic birth chart. Once you know this, you can manage your life better, purify, heal and empower yourself.

These Nakshatras are in fact lunar signs. The positions of the lunar signs were more easily visible to ancient astrologers because they are quite simply the position of the Moon in the heavens on each of the 27.3 days the Moon takes to orbit the Earth against the backdrop of the stars.

​The Nakshatras identify our root scripts and state of consciousness, our root motivations and drives. Each of them has a ruling deity, a ruling planet, a gender-polarity and a power animal that can be used for many purposes of understanding, including the identification of the best marriage partner for you. They cross relate to key frameworks for understanding such as Gunas/Quality of Mind, Ayurvedic Dosha orientation such as Deva or Rakshasha, body Part and Varna or occupational typology. They are divided into groups of qualities such as Fixed, Sharp and Dreadful, Fierce and severe, and Soft, mild and tender plus others.

So, what’s the teaching method?

In Part 1 of this course, you receive full charts at the outset and full information about each of the Nakshatras’ qualities and characteristics, plus a reading list, and there’s a video for each Nakshatra for you to review.

You then work through each of the 27 Nakshatras one by one, learning their characteristics and applying that knowledge to two charts: Yours and mine. Because this course is rooted in the charts of two flesh and blood people, this keeps the work caring, grounded and authentic. Where neither of us has a planet in a particular Nakshatra, then you study that Nakshatra in relation to the chart of a loved one or celebrity instead.

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

Predictive study of the Nakshatras: You also analyse the predictive implications of transits of planets through the Nakshatras and, using Nakshatra analysis, you also deepen your analysis of Vedic Astrology’s wonderful system of predictive periods and sub-periods: the Dashas and Bhuktis.

​And, as ever with my courses, if you wish to incorporate some cross-over into your western astrology, that is fine, and I fully support and guide you in this.

In Part 2 of this course, you receive a statement of the dedicated techniques of Nakshatra Analysis, and you apply each of these powerful and illuminating techniques to each of our charts.

To give you an idea of a few of the Nakshatra Techniques, some detail of these are set out lower down this page.

​These techniques are very powerful illumination indeed. They transform your astrological understanding. They transform our life.

For Example, there’s the Nadi Nakshatras Analysis System:

This gives such powerful declaration and understanding – and can be used as a sure foundation for healing and empowerment work:

​Janma – The Nakshatra occupied by Moon in our Vedic birth chart. Nadi Nakshatras count from Janma inclusively:
1. Jati 4th Our Community, Creed, family well-being.
2. Matru 8th Mother Issues.
3. Karma 10th Our Career Issues. Awareness of work, power and position.
4. Sanghatika 16th Close associations that often challenge or hurt.
5. Samudaya 18th Indication of our manifestation of positive karma from past life. Final Result.
6. Aadhana 19TH Creativity and Father issues. Reasons for rebirth, guru, dharma issues.
7. Vinasha 23rd   Ruin, annihilation and destruction. dissolution, final karma, finishing things.
8. Manasa 25th Our Default State of Consciousness. mentality, mental strengths, obsessions.
9. Abhishekha 27th Power and Achievement. Coronation.

There’s the Special Nakshatra system

– these are two immensely worthwhile methods of Derived Naksatra Analysis offering mush illumination.

AND there’s the use of Nakshatras in Health Astrology as well!

Mula Nakshatra – and a worldwide Nakshatras Course with Michael Conneely

Enroll on my caring and beautiful worldwide Nakshatra course and study the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology:

The 19th Nakshatra is Mula.

It is the first Nakshatra of the third (and final) Sattva group of nine Nakshatras, and it arises out of the very difficult Abhukta Mula Gandanta Zone: 2 deg either side of the transition from the sign before: Jyestha, to this Nakshatra: Mula.

This Gandanta zone is approx 24 deg Sagittarius in the western Tropical Zodiac.


In brief, in the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac, Mula occupies the degrees 0° – 13°20′ Sagittarius

The Symbol of Mula is: A bunch of roots tied together – getting to the bottom of things.

Mula’s Deity is: Nirriti, the the dreadful confrontative goddess of death and destruction.

The power animal is the male dog.

Keywords: going to the bottom, scientific, intelligent, inqui­ring, medicine.

Translation: the root.

Dasa-Ruling Planet: Ketu (7 years)

Favorable: Skillful in persuading or manipulating people to serve their goals and objectives; politician; tactful, clever, able to live a com­fortable life with all the amenities; good fortune; determined to suc­ceed; learned

Unfavorable: Takes with little thought of return; unstable; tells people what they want to hear to get what they want; speaks logically but makes others suspicious; too goal-focused; lacks sufficient appreci­ation for others; arrogant, self-destructive, willful, sabotages their own love; has many affairs and/or marriages that don’t work out

In Vedic astrology, particular value is attached to the centre of the Milky Way.  This centre symbolises a point of special spiritual power.  It is located in the centre of this lunar constella­tion of Mula. Mula may therefore be the most spiritual lunar con­stel­lation.

The spi­rituality of Mula involves the cleansing of the soul by means of confrontations with the unconscious.  How deep the spi­ritua­lity actually goes will only become clear in confron­ting situati­ons.  It is not diffi­cult to be meditative when eve­rything is going as planned; to have faith in the love of the divine when everyt­hing goes wrong is the real test.

Mula people are prepa­red to undergo such tests.  They go the bottom, are intel­ligent and they know that tests have a reason.  A problem will have to be tac­kled by its roots.  It is only then that true healing can take place.  The expres­sion “despe­rate cases call for desperate remedies” will pro­bably have been invented by someone with a strong influence of Mula in his horoscope.

The temperament of Moola is Rakshasa – demon | eccentric and individualistic and its sex is Neuter. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Moola allows for ruining or destroying (that which must be destroyed for spiritual purpose).

Its heavenly basis emanates for breaking things apart, which results in crushing things, through which there is the power to destroy (can destroy destruction).

Sagittarius transforms that paranoid nature of the sign before, Scorpio, and turns it into inspiration and hope, higher meaning and purpose, things that we are inspired by and things that give us a sense of meaning and direction in life beyond just the illusion of control and trying to hang on what we have. there is a high capacity to be inspired by life and to really elevate our belief system.

Planting the seeds of truth so wisdom can grow, this is the nature of Mula and the sign Sagittarius is that sign of wisdom. But first, we need to uproot those things that are not true and not leading to a higher purpose and wisdom.

In Mula we uproot the stress, pain, ignorance and fear of lower Scorpio consciousness and plant the seeds of inspiration. The Nakshatra of Mula is to uproot within Sagittarius to align with a higher purpose and to let go of the stresses and fears of Scorpio. Stay hopeful and optimistic.

Mula stands for an intense way of living, which con­sists of gaining many different expe­riences.

Join my worldwide nakshatras course. Learn the full range of characteristics of each Nakshatra. Learn the powerful systems of derived Nakshatra relationships and their role in Love astrology.

In part 1 we learn about each Nakshatra, especially relating it to your chart and mine.
In part 2 we learn the powerful derived Nakshatra sequences and techniques.

I look forward to working with you


Jyestha Nakshatra: And a Worldwide Course – the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology

Enroll on my caring and beautiful worldwide Nakshatra course and study the 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology:

The 18th Nakshatra is Jyestha. It is the final Nakshatra of the second or Tamas group of nine Nakshatras, and it terminates in the very difficult Gandanta Zone: 2 deg either side of its transition to the next Nakshatra which is: Mula.

In brief, Jyestha occupies 16°40′ – 30° Scorpio

Symbol: the ear ring, which denotes superior social position.

Deity: Indra, king of the gods.

Keywords: wealth, courage, the eldest or founder.

Dasa-Ruling Planet: Mercury (17 years)

Favorable: Most successful of their family; keeps friends and builds a good support network; generous, self-reliant, eventually wealthy; takes charge of the family; passionate response to love; acts respectable; receives fame and honors; takes control; gets things done when they want to

Unfavorable: Angry; has family frictions; too intense to keep friends; hides their feelings and intentions; religious or peaceful on the surface while impatient or immoral underneath; acts religious to get regard; scheming; makes others dependent on them to gain control in the relationship; dramatizes illnesses and troubles to gain sympathy; subject to many illnesses

The temperament of Jyestha is Rakshasa – demon | eccentric and individualistic and its sex is Female. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Jyestha allows for rising or conquering and gaining courage in battle. Its heavenly basis emanates for attack, which results in defense, through which one becomes a hero.

Elementally, and through Ayurveda (the medical System of India), Jyestha is related to Vatta – (air) motion. Its nature is to be sharp and dreadful in an active way. It is closely associated with dissolution – Shiva.

The Ruling Deity of Jyestha is Indra. Indra is the King of the Gods, a noble role, but he is often portrayed as one who is drunk with power, often risking and losing the kingdom through foolish, egoistic bets and battles.

The truth is both possibilities are there with this Nakshatra. We must choose our battles wisely, and when we do, we can be a great, even heroic presence. Obviously, the key factor, as with all the Nakshatras is to develop a higher consciousness perception of what the energy is all about. In fact, it is often the case that through experiencing the lower characteristics of a Nakshatra, our sadness and regret can help us to manifest the higher possibilities.

Join my worldwide nakshatras course. Learn the full range of characteristics of each Nakshatra. Learn the powerful systems of derived Nakshatra relationships and their role in Love astrology.

In part 1 your learn about each Nakshatra. In Part 2 your learn the powerful technique of derived Nakshatra Analysis. My teaching approach is caring and thorough, and linked to healing and empowerment.

I look forward to working with you


The Four Purusharthas

The Four Aims of Life in Vedic Astrology: The Four Purusharthas

When you are studying my Master Vedic Astrology Course, the focus is on two charts: yours and mine. Basically we move from planet to planet, studying it first in yous Vedic birth chart, then in my Vedic birth chart. In-between our planet studies, we focus on learning the Rules of Interpretation. In one of these you list which of our planets fall in Dharma, Artha or Kama Houses; and you note which House each planet occupies. We work out what balance of the Aims of Life we came to work with this time.

You list which of our planets fall in Dharma, Artha, or Kama or Moksha Houses: The Four Aims of Life. The four Purusharthas, or the four aims of life are: dharmaarthakama, and moksha . These are the four aspects or facets of human life and of sadhana, or spiritual practice.

Here are The Four Purusharthas

Dharma means duty and purpose. These houses help us establish our path, our destiny and our purpose for incarnation in this life. Dharma houses are 1, 5 and 9.

Artha means wealth and resources. These houses bring us support and sustenance-either by knowledge, wisdom or resources like money. Artha houses are 2, 6 and 10.

Kama means desire through our most basic human needs like love, sex, enjoyment, emotional and sensory happiness. Kama houses help us achieve our desires and also help us relate to the world through relationships. Kama houses are 3, 7 and 11.

Moksha means liberation and freedom from bondage. These houses help us liberate ourselves and free ourselves from our human suffering through spiritual growth. They help us awaken to the eternal Self. Moksha houses are 4, 8 and 12.
