I do feel certain, myself, that both Vedic and Western astrology are needed for the fullest accuracy and perception.
Vedic astrology uses the sidereal zodiac (anchored to the ‘fixed’ stars) and is orientated to statement of incarnational life purpose: the circumstances we attract at birth to create the destiny our soul chose for this incarnation, and the unfoldment circumstances.
Western astrology (derived from the position of the Sun at the Vernal Equinox) uses the tropical zodiac and being Sun-sign based is orientated to our egoic psychological experience, and crucially, western astrology includes in an essential and totally valid way: our experience of the Outer Planets.
I cannot stress the latter enough. For example, when my current Uranus transit conjunct natal Moon and opposition Sun transit happened, my life was indeed subject to Revolution.
I have given readings for years that combine both western and Vedic Astrology.
I have many students who, while their course will primarily be in one of either Vedic or Western astrology, do learn to cross-refer.
I think part of the reason they succeed in this task, is that I do aim to be very caring and supportive.

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:
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!
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:
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.
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????
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:

Planets in the Nakshatras (the wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology)
Here is the 7th Starwheel Webinar from Michael Conneely on ‘how to read the birth chart’. Here is study of Solongo’s Birth Chart:
This fascinating and deeply worthwhile chart reading series is linked to healing techniques and will be followed by topic-based webinars which will present astrological analysis techniques, supporting both my western astrology and my Vedic astrology courses and the groups of people following them.
Like me, Solongo has Saturn in 2nd House. Among other things in Vedic Astrology 2nd House is to do with childhood. So I will be introducing some very worthwhile Inner Child work and a reference to Family Constellation Work. The handling of possible family ancestral curse around children is discussed.
In Solongo’s western astrology charts, we examine Jupiter square the Nodes of the Moon as a key perception in Evolutionary astrology. In Psychodynamic Astrology we study interlocking Grand Trine in Air and T-squares, Pluto in First House, cut off planets, chart aspect shapes, Nature v Nurture, Alice Bailey Rays and unaspected subpersonalities. Predictively, we look at Individuation Age Point and Nodal Age Point.
