Tantric Astrology

You can enroll on my Vedic Astrology Foundation Course: Master Vedic Astrology, see: www.mastervedicastrology.com and I will share with you the powerful declaration and ancient wisdom of Vedic Astrology, including the Tantric Nature of Vedic Astrology. (Tantric Astrology)

You learn this through depth study of two charts: yours and mine.

And you can incorporate Western Astrology crossover, if you wish. There are also more advanced courses that you can continue your studies with.

In this Video I introduce one facet of Vedic Astrology, namely that at its best it incorporates Tantric Astrology.

Tantra is the reconciliation of apparent opposites in that you can go beyond the plane of the apparent opposites to perceive that which unifies.

And this Truth of Tantra reminds me of the five years I spent, having already studied for an Oxford University MA and with post graduate degrees including sociology and psychology, from 1998 completing a Field Study: An Ethnography: a social-anthropological field study of individuals, institutions and communities pursuing spiritual forms new to the modern West: Hinduism, Buddhism, Paganism, Shamanism and Utopian Community. It was pursued mainly at Glastonbury, a spiritual centre in England, and it included a study of the development of Glastonbury over hundreds of years as a place of pilgrimage and a sacred landscape.

So, in a most important sense, where opposites are stated for your life by Vedic Astrology, this does not negate what is stated. It points to the fact that both are true, and that in exploring the divine perception of how apparent opposites are both true, we develop very sophisticated insight into our life. And this insight is such a sound basis for two very special features which are linked to all my astrology: namely: Healing ourselves and Empowerment.

Another facet of my course which ties into its Tantric Astrology nature is that in the Master Vedic Astrology Course, we study one planet after another (including the western outer planets and Chiron the Wounded Healer if you wish to add these). And we study them first in their Divine Essence: as Gods therefore, and then we study them as they manifest in our individual charts and in our individual lives: through the filters of sign, house, aspect etc. and this manifestation in our lives of course can be a very different matter from the divine, pure manifestation.

Let’s take Jupiter as an example. Jupiter is a natural benefic. BUT under certain destinies, he can manifest as a first rate malefic!
Let’s take the case of Jupiter placed at 1 deg Vedic Sagittarius, using the Sidereal Zodiac of Vedic Astrology (this is 24 degrees Sagittarius using the Tropical Zodiac of Western Astrology).
I’m choosing this because Saturn is transiting this Jupiter at the time of writing – and this is a further twist to the tale of apparent opposites because of course Jupiter and Saturn ARE opposites. So, the question is: how does the Native get them to work together???
So, this Jupiter is in his own sign (Vedic Sagittarius). And therefore he’s strong. In fact, he is in strong Mulatrikona status.
But: how do we square this with the fact that Jupiter will manifest in a weak and marginalised way because he is Rashi Sandhi or ‘edge of sign’?
But: how do we square this with the fact this this is Jupiter in one of the three weakening and insubstantial Gandanta Zones?
And in our example, this chart is a Cancer rising chart and so Jupiter is in the 6th House, which is a Dusthana or fallen house? Of course, on this point Dusthana Houses have the potential to be able to get better with age. But the 6th house IS the house of enemies. The 6th House is associated with Debt!
And there’s’ another twist to the tale. The start of Vedic Sagittarius is of course Mula Nakshatra. Mula Nakshatra (the 1th of the wonderful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology) is ruled over by Niritti, the Dark Goddess. Some Vedic Astrologers see Niritti as ‘adharmic’ but this raises such an important point. If we adopt a tantric understanding, then a ‘dark goddess’ who overturns normality and tramlines can become our so much needed death and rebirth IF we can bring proper tantric understanding.
Of course, one thing we’d need to check into, is Jupiter’s strength scoring in the wonderful sixteen Varga or Divisional charts of Vedic Astrology. It’s really important to know how strong your planet is in each of the divisional charts: each divisional chart makes a priceless declaration about a special area of our life.
So, this Native has a Jupiter score of 16.8 across all the sixteen divisional charts, whereas the score for his Sun across all sixteen divisional charts is only 1.20. so, this crucial measurement points to the fact that he has a weak Sun, so this raises all sorts of crucial spiritual and practical questions of how a super-weak Sun can do his necessary task of directing and controlling a super-strong ultra-expansionary Jupiter?
Not only this, I can include in your course offering if you wish, study of the several systems of Avasthas: measurements of the strength of a planet in your Vedic birth chart and how your planets treat each other: so valuable! Movingly and breath-takingly insightful!
And then we need to understand the tantric point: yes, this Jupiter is STRONG, but this Jupiter is weak and insubstantial and challenged in that he is in the Gandanta Zone. So great spiritual understanding is offered by Vedic Astrology on how the native can understand and utilize these apparent opposites. Strang and weak! Both are true. This is tantric Astrology!
So: go to my Master Vedic Astrology website and enroll. And see that key dimensions of my wonderful course are that it is individually taught and focussed, and always linked to Healing and Empowerment needed potentials within the astrological declaration.
I look forward to hearing from you

Astrology Courses: Peerless individually-taught expert Astrology Courses: A special feature of my
work is that in my astrology courses worldwide, I combine both Western Astrology (which is
psychodynamic in its focus) and Vedic Astrology (which is founded on a peerless offering of its
statement of your incarnational life purpose and destiny, your karmas and the special spark you
incarnated to achieve in this lifetime.
I always find myself combining both western and Vedic Astrology in my course teaching and
readings, because you need the vast declaration offered by Vedic Astrology, but you also need the
psychological dimensions of western astrology.
Even western Evolutionary Astrology which describes the effect of your past lives in this lifetime
does so in psychological terms.
And you absolutely must include in your astrological awareness the energetic impacts in your life of
the Outer Planets: The Gods of Change: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto – and crucially, of Chiron the
Wounded Healer: depiction of your existential wound in the healing of which you become the Healer
of others.

Rune Magic Novel by Michael Conneely

Rune Magic Novel by Michael Conneely and Worldwide Runes Course

Michael Conneely’s novel Rune Magic is available on Amazon worldwide as paperback or kindle. It tells the story of two young people taken up by Odin as Ragnarok approaches, because the High One has a plan to ave the Aesir Gdos and the Nine Worlds where they are somehow key.

Michael also teaches a worldwide Runes Course where you can study each rune in turn, learn the special wisdom and power each rune expresses about an area of life, and heal and empower yourself with the magic of the runes, runes chant, rune stance and meeting the Norse Gods and Goddesses.

In this video, Michael Conneely reads and extract from the novel. Here, the young hero, Declan, does the ritual to mount Yggdrassil and seize the magic of the runes:

And you can find out all about the Runes Course and enroll at: http://www.rune-path.com/


Declan refused to eat when he finally awoke. He stood there, shockingly, before them. He looked so harrowed. He seemed almost destroyed by the third Norn’s prophecy: that his life was short.
‘Smear my body in white clay,’ Declan told them grimly in a voice that was almost beyond despair. ‘The clay from the pool is the paste the Nornir use to heal the Tree. It will heal me as I prepare for my part in the coming End of Time. Smear me with white clay to token coming death.’ His voice was sounding ever further from them in his coming trance.
The other three went repeatedly to the waterside, back and forth, until every inch of Declan’s body was covered with think swirls of limey clay which set a corpse-white sheet, rigid on his skin.
‘I know what he wants,’ Frithgeir said, ‘it has come into my mind.’ Frithgeir opened the one of the two silver flasks that Odin had given Declan. Then he painted onto the dry hard white corpse-covering paste covering Declan’s body, a great vermilion spiral at the base of Declan’s spine, running on up the back of his neck, the line snaking upwards to his skull where Frithgeir ended it in the snake’s head drawn red atop the crown amid the flaming tresses of his hair.
Declan put his hands behind him and briefly tilted his head far backwards and stared up to the crown of the World Tree, Yggdrassil. Then, grimly, he shouldered his spear and waded round the edge of the pool to where three roots of the World Tree opened at the base of the trunk and went towards the gap between them. The other three shuddered and cried out loud when, one foot in the water and one foot on the earth, Declan suddenly pierced his side with the spear as Odin had done when he first seized the Magic of the Runes and disappeared between the roots, leaving a trail of bright red blood on the snowy rocks behind him and a red swirl in the water that was seized and taken by the current.
Magda gasped and put her hand to her mouth. ‘I didn’t know he was going to do that! – with the spear. Oh no: he could die.’


Learn to Become a Shamanic Healer

Learn to Become a Shamanic Healer with Michael Conneely

Learn how to heal yourself on my worldwide course, and then become the shamanic Healer of others. Study my Distance Learning Course in the healings of core shamanism.

Enter the powerful world of depth healing, visions, shamanic journeying and power animals.

Shed unhelpful old scripts.

Embrace the true self you were born to be. I am your guide to your hero’s journey.

Empower yourself to help and heal others.

This skilled and caring introductory worldwide course is practical, well-organised, supportive, caring, skilled and worthwhile. It comes in two levels and is fully Certificated. My teaching is ethical, caring and encouraging.

I have exceptional learning and wide qualifications in the spiritual healing fields, and thus I am able to Mentor you and guide you with care and ethics.

A special bonus of my work is that I use western and Vedic astrology to guide all my healings and course teachings.

Contact your greater self, your vision and your connection to the Earth. Learn shamanic healing and become a shamanic healer. Read my expert chapters on the strengths and issues of working as a Shamanic Healer in my book: The Backpacker’s Guide to the New Spirituality 2014, available through Amazon worldwide.

The two levels of my worldwide Shamanic Healer course are as follows:

Level 1: My Certificated Level 1 Shamanic Healing Course

The four modules of my Level 1 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.

For each Module you receive an audio recording download with information and a guided meditation for your personal healing and development. You complete at least two pieces of work for each module. A reading list is provided and there is all necessary opportunity for question and discussion with myself. After working with the audio recording for each module, you then correspond with myself, discussing how you got on, and also how your spiritual life path is unfolding. I then reply to you. This correspondence is completely personal and individual to you.

The Certificated Level 1 course is not a practitioner certification. Healing in this module is healing of yourself. But successful completion of the Level 1 Course can be followed by my Level 2 Practitioner courses which involves applying healing and developmental techniques to another person. (In each case with appropriate correspondence with myself in respect of each module).

Level 2: My Certificated Intermediate Level Course

In this course you learn the following additional three shamanic techniques and you complete one piece of supported work with a client:
Heart-centred deposition, where our lives are overshadowed or energetically blocked.
Soul renewal by working with Fort Holders.
Life-script, curse or thought-form unravelling, whether from this life or ancestral.

You complete at least two journeys for each method yourself, but this Level 2 course now introduces Practitioner work. You choose from the seven shamanic healer modalities you have studied so far to do two pieces of healing work with one client (with correspondence and support from myself).
There’s every needed support and discussion.

The course is Certificated.

You can include healing/empowering art work, embodiment work, energy work and link to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).

Your Teacher:

My name is Michael Conneely. I am a dedicated, caring and supportive teacher. I am the author of six visionary books, and I have an Oxford University MA and five university degrees in total. From 1998, I completed a five-year ethnographic Field Study: a university-based social-anthropological study of spiritual forms new to the modern west, the method of which was to live in the institutions under study in the areas of Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, shamanism and Utopian Community – mainly based at Glastonbury. I have taught shamanic healing for nineteen years, having initially trained with John and Caitlin Matthews. I can recommend this worldwide distance learning introductory course in shamanic healing as a beautiful, very well-planned and wonderfully healing experience.
The ‘Featured Image’ of this Blog Post, by the way, is of a Yakut shamanic settlement on the North Polar coast of the Barents Sea, where my ancestry comes from on my father’s side.
To book your Shamanic Healer Course: go to the relevant page of my Earth Star Web website and use the payment buttons at the foot of this page: https://www.earthstarweb.com/shamanic-healer.html
