Battle of Moytura – The Labby Stone

Battle of Moytura – The Labby Stone

Battle of Moytura – The Labby Stone – Earth Energy

Please bear with the occasional wind noise during the group’s working in late January, at the battlefield of the Second Battle of Moytura. The earth energies and the vision of the ancient Irish Gods makes the whole event so powerful, beautiful and special.

On the way up to the site of the battle on the mountain top overlooking Loch Arrow, we passed the Labby Stone.

This is a mighty East-facing portal tomb of the Palaeolithic people who found this area so sacred, as did the Tuatha de Danaan who came after them, as now does humanity again. See the detail of my wonderful Druid Forest School courses: www.druidforestschool.com/courses

At the Iron Age Irish Second Battle of Moytura, the People of Skill, the people of the Goddess Danu, overthrew the Forces of Darkness.

This January, the group of us climbed to the exalted mountain top where the second Moytura battle was fought, high above Loch Arrow.

The earth energies are stupendous. The rocks austere and black. You look across the loch to the late stone age tombs of Carrowkeel. You look the other way to the sacred earth energies of Carrowmoor, Knocknarea, Ben Bulben and the Atlantic Ocean. See: www.foxfordairbnb.com

Such powerful and healing earth energies are in the rocks of the sacred places round here.

The site of the Battle is only 35 miles from the Healing Centre and airbnb that Maggie Pashley and I run in Foxford in beautiful County Mayo in the stupendously beautiful far West of Ireland, where we offer holidays, holidays with healings, retreats and Sacred Ireland Tours.
See the main video about the battlefield:

I look forward to working with you

The Battle of Moytura and Return of the Ancient Irish Gods

The Battle of Moytura and Return of the Ancient Irish Gods

At the Iron Age Irish Second Battle of Moytura, the Tuatha de Danaan, the People of Skill, the people of the Goddess Danu, overthrew the Forces of Darkness: the brutish Formorians. A group with the Druid Forest School Courses to meet the Gods and Goddesses of the Ancient Irish set out to find the site of the great battle. Enroll on the Course.

See this video:

The Book of Invasions was written down in the Middle Ages and records the oral Druid Teaching that had been passed on from the Iron Age. The Book records how the Tuatha de Danaan were pushed out of Ireland where they had their home in the Iron Age.  Although a people of commanding gifts, talents and skills, the Tuatha de Danaan were oppressed by the piratical, dark and earthy Formorians who lived on this land and its seas from even more ancient times. And so, the Tuatha could stand the oppression no longer and they departed and they spent years sailing the seas learning great skills and magical arts.

The Book of Invasions records how they then decided to return and reclaim their homeland.

Agnes Morrogh Bernard Mother of Foxford

Agnes Morrogh Bernard Mother of Foxford

Agnes Morrogh Bernard Mother of Foxford and Foundress of the Foxford Woollen Mills

Visit the Foxford Woollen Mill founded in 1892 by Mother Agnes Morrogh Bernard to bring work and hope to one of Ireland’s poorest and most desperate ‘Congested Areas’.

Maggie Pashley and I run a healing Centre and Airbnb in the small, homely village Foxford in lovely County Mayo, in the beautiful far West of Ireland. See: www.foxfordairbnb.com

There are five museums nearby. And amazingly Foxford has three great heroes in its history. One of these is the saintly Agnes Morrogh Bernard, Mother of Foxford.

You can come and stay at our B&B for a holiday. See the ranges of healing and readings you can add on if you wish.

See this Video:

When Agnes Morrogh Bernard was a small girl, the daughter of a rich Anglo-Irish family, she was shocked to the core when a starving Irish woman came to the door of the family mansion and pleaded for scraps to feed the pigs so she could eat. The young Agnes decoded then and there to devote her life to help the poor.

And so, Agnes became a Sister of Charity and in 1892, she arrived at Foxford where the condition of the people was truly desperate. The English Ascendancy Class Landlord was a branch of Lord Lucan’s family, and if any tenant showed any sign of bettering themselves, they simply put up the rent. Agnes Morrogh Bernard saw how there were no proper roads and the people lived in hovels called a ‘cabin’, each with a miden of human and animal manure piled outside the door. The families lived with the pig inside the cabin with the family, as the pig was ‘the gintleman as pays the rent’! She heard from a son how his father was crying out with the pains of hunger, as the Priest was giving him the Last Rites as his father lay dying on a pile of rags.

Agnes Morrogh Bernard was a determined woman, she had a great sense of the ‘Eye of Providence’ ever present and ever-guiding her.

Surprisingly she wrote to a Protestant, Freemason Mill Owner in Ulster, who came and visited her at his own expense and for the rest of his life guided her to found and run the woollen mills.

On her arrival in Foxford, Agnes decided that spinning and weaving could be the salvation of the poor people, and in 1892 she founded the Foxford Woollen Mills. Over the next few years she built a school and in 1893 she got a grant so training could be given in the domestic and farming areas of the community.

She also encouraged sports and music, and in 1897 she set up the Brass and Reed Band which today is still the pride of Foxford. Thanks mainly to her efforts a handball alley was built in 1901.

As the years passed and money became more plentiful she had houses built for employees of the Mill. The music school was built in 1923, and the Convent Chapel On her arrival in 1925, both of these can still be seen in Foxford today. Up until her death in 1932, Agnes continued to improve and update the Mill and the town itself.

Nowadays, there’s a tour round the Mill, and on the first floor there’s a wonderful café with fresh home-made food, from a cup of tea or coffee, a light snack to full meal. The Mill shop is wonderful stocks a wide range of Irish made giftware as well as the Foxford rugs, blankets and tweeds. There’s a jewelry workshop which includes handcrafting intricate pieces of jewellery, many of which are made to order.

Visit the Foxford Woollen Mills. The place is exceptional. It truly is. And take a look at the Admiral Brown Museum as well

Personally, I feel that Mother Agnes Morrogh Bernard left a healing Energy in the land here. Foxford is healing the families who live hear benefit.  You will feel what I mean if you come and stay at our Healing Centre with airbnb. We look forward to welcoming you,
Michael

Mapping your unique Shamanic Healer Pathway

Mapping your unique Shamanic Healer Pathway

Map your own unique Shamanic Healer pathway to create the perfect course for you.

Enrol on my Shamanic Healer Course: http://www.earthstarweb.com/shamanic-healer.html

The four modules of my Level 1 Shamanic Healer Course are:

  • Shamanic Journeying
  • Power Animal Retrieval
  • Soul Retrieval (Inner child work and Family Constellation work can be included here if appropriate)
  • Spiritual Intrusions Healing.

The modules of my Level 2 Shamanic Healer Course are:

  • Heart-centred deposition, where our lives are overshadowed or energetically blocked.
  • Life-script, curse or thought-form unravelling, whether from this life or ancestral.

However, this video invites you to map your own shamanic Healer learning pathway on my course as well. I want the course to include what is exactly right and needed for you.


Ask yourself: What is the essence of your Shamanic Healer path?

Vision: A shamanic Healer course should activate your own vision, it should kick-start your intuitive powers. It should give you the foundation to access the Otherworlds and the transpersonal realms.

Shamanic Journey: Obviously, first of all, you should learn to do Shamanic Journey.

Intuitive Connection: This will enable you to go beyond your everyday mind into intuitive connection with the Web of All: unify your body and mind awareness, open your intuitive eyes to your past (karmic and inheritance) and make accessible the awareness of the future we have in that all things and all times are actually connected in the Web. Astrology, too, is a key to creating awareness of the future, as well as stating our destiny patterns and psychological self, and I bring into the course awareness from your western and Vedic Astrology.

Nature: Nature is a gateway to the Otherworlds and to the greater awareness. Every place has its energy, its spirit of place, the energies that have been planted there whether by Gods, Spirits, Humans or animals. For the ancient Irish and first nation peoples, every thing that is, has a soul. Our body and mind is connected with the energies of earth, sea and land. Some rocks, especially crystalline metamorphic rocks and limestone are especially good at holding implanted energies. We can learn how to sense and read earth energies and see and connect with spirits of place.

Ceremony and Ritual: Shamanism is imbued with ritual. You can learn to do your own healing and empowering ritual, and share your development in this in discussion with me.

Dreams: you may feel drawn to keep a diary of year dreams and embark on a journey of dream interpretation and I would be glad to share and support in this.

Art: Art and shamanism have been hand in hand in human history since the dawn of our race. It is so beneficial to use simple sketch art. For example, you can sketch yourself expressing an energy or issue, before and after a healing exercise or shamanic journey or ritual, and those two journeys in themselves can be a powerful and memorable continuing support to your shamanic empowerment. You can sketch the spirit you see. You can sketch the memorable theme of your vision or dream.

Death: we more and more can see life as a preparation for our death. Psychopomp Work can be necessary and you may wish to share on this.

Our Children: We all start out as parents with the highest ideals, but often such are the antecedent difficulties in our own live and so difficult can be the karmic scripts that our parenting can go so sadly awry. Men’s’ Work, Women’s’ Work, Boys to Men work and Girls to Women work is a core and backbone of first nations peoples. It was central to the path of the Celtic Irish warrior, but it has lost its essential place.

Community is an unavoidable issue. Community is fraught with negative group dynamics, power stealing and definition of ideal self in terms of spiritually-correct slogans, but can we find support of community in our Shamanic path?

So, at the outset of your shamanic course, and at all points of your shamanic course, I invite you to refer to this wide agenda of the Shamanic Healer pathway and map your own special path that is right for you and the can be added to the main course outline.

I look forward to hearing from you,
Michael

Admiral Brown : A Museum in Ireland and A Hero of Argentina

Admiral Brown : A Museum in Ireland and A Hero of Argentina

Visit the Admiral Brown Museum Foxford County Mayo Ireland.

Maggie Pashley and I run a healing Centre and Airbnb in the small, homely village Foxford in lovely County Mayo, in the beautiful far West of Ireland. See: http://www.foxfordairbnb.com/

Come and stay at our B&B for a holiday. See the ranges of healing and readings you can add on if you wish.

There are five museums nearby. And amazingly Foxford has three great heroes in its history. Weirdly, Foxford boasts the national hero of Argentina among its former inhabitants.

See my video:

Admiral William Brown started off his life in Foxford and he lived to become the founder of the Argentine Navy and hero of Argentine’s struggle to throw off the colonial oppression of the Spanish Empire.

Aged nine, he set off from Foxford for the USA and a new life in 1786, with his grieving father after the deaths of the mother and all the children.

But sadly his father fell ill in the coffin ship and died a few days after landing in Philadelphia, leaving William an orphan.

But William was not daunted. He got a job as a Cabin Boy, and ten years later, by age 19, he was in command of his own ship.

He later escaped from a Napoleonic prison and in 1814 led the Argentine navy in a desperate but victorious battle. He defeated the fleet of the Spanish Empire. In a moment of glory, he freed the Colony from the Spanish Imperialists.

Visit the Admiral Brown Museum in Foxford. The presentation is so stirring, such a tribute to courage. The staff are wonderful.
You can read more about the Museum on Tripadvisor and also take the time to look at Michael Conneely’s Online Shop

Michael Davitt  The Hero of the Irish Land League.

Michael Davitt The Hero of the Irish Land League.

Maggie Pashley and I run a healing Centre and Airbnb in Foxford in County Mayo, in the beautiful far West of Ireland. See: http://www.foxfordairbnb.com/

Come and have a holiday in this utterly beautiful place.

There are five museums nearby. One of them is the deeply moving and utterly caringly presented Michael Davitt Museum, Straide, Foxford.

Michael Davitt became a saviour of the Irish People. He worked to secure Land Rights for ordinary Irish people whose generations had been trashed by English Ascendancy Class Landlordism.

His formative experience was being evicted when he was age four and a half, because his family had fallen into arrears of rent due to the prolonged Famine. They lived in a farm workers’ ‘cabin’ in Straide in County Mayo, just a few miles from Foxford.

Agents for the English Landlord turned up and the family were put outside and they watched helplessly as the thatched roof was set fire to, then the walls demolished, so that they could not re-enter.

The family then walked to road to the Poor House at Swinford, seeing many piteous sights on the roadside on the way of people dead and dying and reduced to disaster by having to live in the fields.

When they arrived at the Work House, the family were told that as Michael was four, he was too old to be in the same room as his mother, as the sexes were segregated from age three years.

His mother declared that she would not be separated from her son, and that she would rather live by the side of the road.

They went by foot to Lancashire in England, and as soon as young Michael was old enough he had to work 12 hours a day to help support the family who were lodging with fifteen tenants in a terraced house.

Disaster struck when Michael was aged 12 and he lost his arm in mill machinery.

However, great opportunity arrived. A philanthropist paid for four year education for the devastated boy. Michael went on to become an Irish MP at Westminster.

There Michael Davitt met Mahatma Gandhi and following this meeting with The Mahatma, Michael brought methods of non-violent resistance to Ireland to fight for the Irish dispossessed at the hands of their English Ascendancy Class Landlords.

Michael Davitt became a saviour of the Irish People. He worked to secure Land Rights for ordinary Irish people whose generations had been trashed by English Ascendancy Class Landlordism.

Before he met The Mahatma, such was Michael’s hatred for what the British were doing to his Irish people, he took on a secret life, purchasing arms and ammunition and shipping it to Ireland for Fenians to attack British Troops, in the desperate fight for Independence.

He was caught doing this, however. He was arrested on 14th May 1870 at Paddington Station, awaiting a delivery of arms. He was tried for Treason, and he was sentenced to fifteen years’ imprisonment with hard labour.

Michael spent the first five years of his sentence in silence and solitary confinement, picking oakham out of second hand rope. The second five years was spent in hard labour at Dartmoor Prison. But after ten years’ imprisonment, Michael was given parole for the remaining five year on condition he did nothing treasonous to the British Crown.

Of course, he did do treason. He made speeches that the common people of Ireland could not improve their lot without the ownership of their land and he started to campaign for land rights. This was at the time of the 1879 Famine. He even became elected as an MP. And he served three subsequent periods in Prison.

But when Michael met Mahatma Gandhi, there was a great change. Michael renounced his campaign of violence.  He taught that political revolution should be achieved without killing, and on his deathbed, he said he forgave his enemies.

In 1886 Davitt married Mary (b. 1861), from Michigan USA. In 1887 he then visited Wales to support land agitation. The couple returned to Ireland and lived for a while in the Land League Cottage in Dublin, that was given to them as a wedding gift by the people of Ireland. They had five children, three boys and two girls, though one, Kathleen, died of tuberculosis aged seven, in 1895. One son, Robert Davitt, became a TD, while another, Cahir Davitt, became President of the High Court.

Michael resigned his seat in the British Parliament in protest at the British declaration of war on the Boers in South Africa. And although his health was broken, Michael then toured the world to help the suffering and oppressed poor. He went to South Africa to help the Boers in their struggle against the British Empire, and he went to Russia to help the Jews who were suffering persecution there.

Always, he was influenced by the peaceful resistance teaching of Mahatma Gandhi: nonviolent civil disobedience and the practise of truth: ‘Ahisma’. He was a respected colleague of the early English Socialist and Labour party leaders.

Michael died age 60 in Elpis Hospital, Dublin on 30 May 1906, from blood poisoning. the next day over 20,000 people filed past his coffin. His body was then taken by train to Foxford, County Mayo, and he buried in the grounds of Straide Abbey at Straide (near Foxford), next to the ruins of the house where he was born.

Visit the Michael Davitt Museum. The presentation is so moving. The staff there are totally wonderful.

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and your Manasa Nakshatra: Your Default State of Consciousness

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and your Manasa Nakshatra: Your Default State of Consciousness

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and your Manasa Nakshatra: Your Default State of Consciousness: what to do about it and when.

Learn the Power and Beauty of the Nakshatras.

The Nakshatras are the wonderful and powerful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology. See my Worldwide Nakshatras Course website: http://www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com/

Our Manasa Nakshatra is the 25th Nakshatra counted from our natal Moon. It is very important to know its characteristics because is powerfully and accurately describes our Default State of Consciousness, our mentality, our mental strengths, and our obsessions.

It is additionally so important to know what Nakshatra is our Manasa Nakshatra, and to know the dates when Saturn will transit through it on his 28-year orbit round the sun. This is because the transit of Saturn through our Manasa Nakshatra is the start of our Sade Sate period. Sade sate is the seven and a half year very difficult period when Saturn transits over our natal Moon.

If we know the name, and characteristics of our Manasa Nakshatra, and the date Saturn will hit it, we are in such a stronger position than someone entering sade sate blind.

If we are properly informed in this way we will be expecting the mental disturbance, the pessimism, the doubt, the tumult, the endless worry. We will have the chance to put into place ways of stabilising and healing our mind.

In Part 1 of my Nakshatra 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 study each of the Nakshatra with reference to your chart and mine, and this approach makes our study caring, grounded and authentic. We develop great penetrating perception and wisdom, and always we ask: what steps can we take to heal and empower?
In Part 2 of my Nakshatra course, you receive a statement of the several powerful dedicated techniques of Nakshatra Analysis, including predictive use of the Nakshatras through predictive periods called dashas, and also transits. You apply each of these powerful and illuminating techniques to our charts. These techniques are very powerful illumination indeed. They transform our astrological understanding. They transform our life.

I look forward to working with you,
Michael

Eclipse February 11th 2017 What will this mean?

Eclipse February 11th 2017 What will this mean?

There is a Full Moon or lunar Eclipse on 11th February 2017. What will this mean?

Note: that the exact Date/time will vary slightly according to latitude and time zone of the place where you live. Variation may be one day either side. These details are set for Foxford in Co Mayo in West of Ireland (53 N 58; 009 W 08), which uses UK time. To see exact detail for your location, please go to:   https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/full.html and find out.    

 

 

Where are the Sun and Moon on this Eclipse? See the western and Vedic full charts below at the foot of this blog post, but here is the summary:

Western Astrology (Tropical Zodiac):     Sun:      22 Aquarius 28
Moon:   22 Leo 28
Vedic Astrology (Sidereal Zodiac):         Sun:      28 Capricorn 22 Dhanistha Nakshatra (Lunar Sign) (Pada 2)
Moon:   28 Cancer 22     Ashlesha Nakshatra (Lunar Sign) (Pada 4)
(The Nakshatras are the powerful, sure and beautiful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic astrology, used in addition to the 12 Vedic Sun Signs).

Note that this is a penumbral, or partial Eclipse. So, this means that it is not as powerful as the really very heavy duty New Moon Eclipse upcoming later this month on 26.2.17 at 14.58 hrs. See my forthcoming Blog about that, and for all the lunations.

So this eclipse will bring the winds of change, if you have a significant planet or your ascendant on or very near the degrees of the Sun or the Moon of this eclipse.

In particular, note that the Moon of this eclipse is in the Gandanta Zone. What is the gandanta zone?

Well, the three Gandanta Zones are the three sensitive, dangerous and difficult transitions from a water sign in Vedic Astrology to a fire Sign: so water dissolves, and the Void is opened up, and across that is the first flicker of Fire. These transitions points are from Vedic Pisces to Aries (Revati to Ashwini Nakshatras) Vedic Cancer to Leo (Ashlesha to Leo Nakshatras).

Some astrologers offer very strict definition of Gandanta Zone (plus/minu three quarters of a degree wither side of the zero point), but others offer the definition of two degrees either side, and I have most certainly found that planets falling two degrees either side definitely do show Gandanta effects. Gandanta effects are like like the substance of the planet being drained or obliterated, the opening up of the sensitivity to the lack of reality of the material world.

So, what is means for example, is that it you have Moon in one of the three Gandanta Zones, mother won’t be there for you; if you have Sun their father won’t be there for you, and you will be drained of your full substance. Of course, you can do something about healing and empowering a planet in the Gandanta zone, except in the case of Moon, where perforce you have no choice to devote your life to understanding with and working with and living with the curse.

So my point is that the Eclipse will have very special effect on people with planets in 2 deg either side of the Vedic Cancer – Leo Gandanta, most expecially on the Cancer side.

So this means that if you have been using your Sun wrongly, as Ashleshas are often prone to, controlling and hypnotising themselves or others, then this eclipse could bring downfall.

I say downfall, but ‘correction’ might be the better word. You see, eclipse have a big energetic effect. They are associated with tsunamis or tidal waves and earth quakes in the earth crust. We are largely made up of water, and so there is a tidal wave in us and in our life if an eclipse falls on one of our planets or (big effect here) on our Ascendant (the start of our Rinsing Sign, called the Lagna in Vedic Astrology). Earthquakes release stress build up. If we are living in a way that is not right for our life, or not right for the course of events of the universe’s unfoldement, then the tectonic plates will crack! Then the tsunami will crash!

To have an eclipse fall on your Sun, Moon or Ascendant, gave rise in the age of the Iliad, the Vedas or the Irish Druid epics: The Book of Invasions, to predictions of the ‘Fall of Kings’, etc. Secrets open up and are exposed.

But what this really means is that the person is ‘off course’ and the tidal wave of the eclipse energy will align events and consequences in the life that will smash into their live, with the divine intention of correction, of putting them on course.

So, it is very important to be careful and aware if an eclipse is due to happen or has recently happened on one of your major planets. Lunar eclipse such as this have quick effects; solar eclipses have delayed effects.

The Total Solar Eclipse visible across U.S. August 21st 2017 is situated right on Donald Trump’s ascendant. From working as an astrologer for 22 years, I have a long list of accounts of the sort of things that happen.

BUT as all my astrology is geared to healing and empowerment and creation of spiritual strategy for our lives, I can also advise on how we can live more rightly for our Dharma, for our individual creative spark.

So, if you want a caring and expert Reading about your natal chart or  Prediction: a Reading for your predictive year ahead, get in touch with me: www.starwheelastrology.com.

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and Mrigashira Nakshatra

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and Mrigashira Nakshatra

Learn the Power and Beauty of the Nakshatra through this Worldwide Nakshatras Course

The Nakshatras are the wonderful and powerful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology. See my Worldwide Nakshatras Course website: www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com

Mrigashira is the 5th Nakshatra. Mrigashira’s position in the Vedic zodiac is: 23° 20′ Taurus to 6° 40′ Gemini. They are often portrayed as gentle spiritual seekers, but this is wrong.

In fact, they are restless, nervous, constantly searching and curious, and these traits can lead them to temporary satisfaction at best, and often their restlessness leads them to sorrow.

They appear to be, and they can be: gentle, tender, peaceful, sensual, romantic, caring and they are searching??? They can be travelers, investigators, researchers, collectors, public speakers and communicators. And they are Smiley!!!

They are often thin and can have food issues such as anorexia, but some are lethargic and even can ‘burn out’ to mental/physical nervous exhaustion.

But, the surface is deceptive. Often, they are suspicious, with Fixed attitudes and opinions, never backing down. And this leads them into domestic bickering and marital trouble. Basically, they need space in relationship and if so it can be possible, though not certain, for them to work their relationship approach out.

As I said, some of the nakshatra write up describe them as gentle spiritual seekers, but note that this nakshatra is in fact ruled by Mars, and the Ayurvedic Dosha is: Pitta – fiery!!!!

So, Mars is their Dasa-Ruling Planet: Mars (7 years), and their ruling deity is Soma (the God of ecstasy and the Moon). Their Symbol is the head of the Deer, which accounts for some of the misleading write-ups, because their power animal is actually the Female Serpent. In terms of the Gunas, their profile is: Rajas, Tamas and Tamas – so, desire and double materiality, but their motivation, and it is so needed for them to get in touch with this, is Moksha: seeking moksha! Seeking salvation.

So, favourably, they are curious. They seek new knowledge. They are mentally sharp. They can be cre­ative and they are very sensitive; they come across as enthusiastic, youthful, hopeful; with rapid learning ability and a consistent satirical sense of humor. Their focus is more mental than physical, and they seem to be all about friendly fun, and they have a number of friends and can have a number of romantic interests.

But, unfavourably, their nervousness and Mars energy can very often lead them to be flirtatious, fickle and with multiple partnerships (often con­currently). their partners often get more attached than they do. They seek or land themselves in too much excitement (and often unyielding conflict as well) and so they get too much excitement and then they get nervous and then exhausted. They are frequently underweight, with high metabolism, and they need plenty of exercise and fresh air to stay in balance. At their most difficult in relationships, they are damagingly reluctant to commit; fragmented; critical, with biting conversation, and they can be horrifically and unfairly suspicious of almost anyone.

Each Nakshatra is divided into four quarters or ‘padas’.
The first pada in Mrigashira is: Leo pada at 23°20′ to 26°40′ of the Vedic sign of Taurus. These people can be proud and stubborn, Fixed and they never back down.

The second pada of Mrigashira is Virgo pada, occupying: 26°40′ to 30°00′ Vedic Taurus – The planet Mercury is exalted if it occupies this pada. here.

The third pada in Mrigashira is: Libra pada 0°00′ to 3°20′ Vedic Gemini – Saturn is exalted in this pada, but the Sun is debilitated (giving lack of confidence, a Sun made unsettled by the restlessness) and Venus is in his own pada.

Mrigashira’s fourth pada is Scorpio pada, occupying 3°20′ to 6°40′ Gemini is really the most difficult of the four padas, in terms of its inherent energy and its inherent energy conflicts. The two inimical energies of sign, Gemini, and of the pada, Scorpio, get into terrible turmoil. These people can get so jealous and can get into such lethal conflicts.  The Moon feels it is in turmoil if he occupies this 4th pada, because he is stuck in an impossible position trying to balance Gemini Mercurialness and Scorpionic venom. Rahu is debilitated if occupying this Mrigashira fourth Nakshatra and this can lead to alcohol or drugs issues, secrecy and political manoeuvring. But Ketu, here, brings past life knowledge. This fourth pada is very argumentative and sharp, they can over-intellectualise, and the point is that they need to become aware, they need to become perceptive if these things are going on, and so they need to move through darkness to light. The image here is of the lotus whose blossom is on the surface of the water, but roots in the muck at the bottom. At its best, the salvation for this energy is a shamanic ‘death and rebirth’ energy.

Of course, it is true of all the Nakshatras, that we can have to go through the darker side to learn about the need to spiritually progress.

In Part 1 of my Nakshatra 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 study each of the Nakshatra with reference to your chart and mine, and this approach makes our study caring, grounded and authentic. We develop great penetrating perception and wisdom, and always we ask: what steps can we take to heal and empower?
