Newsletter June 2015 from Michael Conneely

It’s many months since I wrote a Newsletter, and I feel so changed I feel like I’m a different person!

There’s been one change after another – and the end result so far, is that I am getting so much satisfaction out of starting my new novel a week ago (after many months of research). The first draft has just flowed: seven chapters in five mornings, as if channelled. The working title is ‘The Druid Forest School’ and the theme is authentic contact with the Gods and Goddesses of the Tuatha de Danaan. I am loving every minute of writing it and am feeling so well doing it.

The action all starts up in a new cave that has opened up in the west of Ireland due to winter-storms land subsidence, where the archaeology of the caves in Ireland reveals they were, for the ancient Irish, places of connection to ….

If you’d like to read my prediction for June 2015 Astrology, please go to: https://starwheel.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/june-2015-astrology-prediction-from-michael-conneely-vedic-and-western-astrology/ , but do read on to the rest of this fascinating June newsletter first!!!

In terms of the predictive periods of Vedic Astrology, I am actually in a period ruled by my ‘soul indicator’, my Atmakaraka planet, which in my case is my Moon. The Atmakaraka period in my life at this time has been thus one of great separations from what must not be part of my spiritual path, and, as I believe, clear embracing of my essence. I feel I am so much more writing from my heart, and working from the heart. And I feel that I have greatly benefited from a wonderful new healing method by my partner Maggie called ‘Access Bars’ which helps remove old programing, empowers you to be yourself.

Astrology Readings: I am still continuing my worldwide astrology readings of course, and they represent an ever more powerful combination of western and Vedic astrology. They take at least two hours these days, and they encompass truly expert methods learned from my courses in astrological psychosynthesis in western astrology and three courses at advanced level in western astrology, as well as twenty years’ reading experience.

I always combine my astrology readings with Tarot, and my favourite packs at the moment where I find I can feel rightly confident in doing readings for people thousands of miles away are the Poppy Palin ‘Wild Spirit’ Tarot, which you can only get off EBay, but I knew was a ‘must’ when I saw some of the card images, and I do find the insight totally spot on. My other favourites continue to be ‘The Art Through the Eyes of the Soul Oracle’ by Cheryl Yambrach Rose, the ‘Tarot of the Sidhe’ by Emily Carding and ‘The Oracle of the Dragonfae’ by Lucy Cavendish.

Astrology Courses: I have done a lot of work filling out my astrology courses. The guiding theme is that like the Oxford Tutorial system which I myself benefited from as a young undergraduate in the 1960s, they encourage as much excellence as the student wishes to aim for, with vast personal attention by the tutor to the work sent in on each assignment. Gone are the irritating word limits that I found so unnecessarily irritating and confining when I was doing my astrology courses. Gone are the tutor ‘one-liner’ comments. Gone are the ranting to pre-recorded slides. My whole aim is to encourage the student to voice his or her authentic reaction to the astrology method, not just the importation of legalistically-defined rules. I am planning worldwide Webinar series on student-requested themes and I have been preparing masses of course documents for my Advanced Nakshatras Course

(See my websites: www.mastervedicastrology.com and www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com .)

In my Advanced Vedic Astrology Course, I have been delighting in writing papers about the Rashi Tulya and Bhava Suchaka system which gives such wonderful guidance about the contribution your Soul makes to your incarnation this time, based on the Navamsha chart. And the whole thrust of all my courses are that they must spell out the positives, must spell out ways of transforming the karmically defined challenges and utilising the equally karmically-defined merits and positive essences. I have also loved writing a paper about how to utilise awareness of one’s Badhaka house planet (a weak link house/planet inherent in each of the Lagnas or ‘Ascendants) as well as the principle of Pushkara Planets (weak links that act to our great gain when we purify them), with my paper focusing on Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Govenator of California. There is the most astoundingly lively and creative face Book group utilised by some of the course members.

See my website: www.advancedvedicastrologycourse.com

My worldwide Ogham and Runes courses are going very well, and I have just started Face Book Groups for each, which I hope will promote vibrant lively shared learning and support.

See my websites: www.oghampathways.com and www.rune-path.com

Shamanic Healer Course: I am so honoured to read the standard of the work of the students in my worldwide Shamanic Healer Course. I myself am feeling rather sore at what I experienced as ego-filled teaching and power-stealing from many teaching in the shamanic area, so I do feel so glad to be offering a course which I sincerely believe promotes authenticity to the student’s vision, avoids repetitious form rather than essence, and most importantly offers a high level of awareness of ethical shamanic healer techniques.

See my websites: www.shamanic-healer.net and www.munaykiempowerment.com . I got an awful lot out of Munay Ki, and feel it is a gateway to the well-being and authenticity I now feel, but I would add that I feel the full flowering of its chakra energy raising took for me also going on to Dhyana or focus meditation, what can be called Kundalini meditation: focus on the third eye to raise kundalini and thus promote healing crises as the residues of negative past experiences are cleared as the kundalini rises up through them. However, an important finding I also came to was that I feel there is a need to avoid what I feel is the trap of some Eastern perspectives which negate the value of the phenomena of this world. The experience I have come to is that it is important to see that we are here this time to work with certain definable talents and work with certain negative scripts, and so this world has great value – if/when one brings more enlightened awareness to its phenomena.

Psychodynamic Western Astrology: Last but not least, I have loved teaching the western astrology course, where I have benefited so much from the deep and thoughtful sharing of Yvonne Lawton who is working her way through the psychodynamic interpretation of the astrology chart and posting for the benefit of astrology course members in the Face book group. This involves the psychodynamic study of hemispheres and quadrants of the birth chart, planets, signs and houses, astrological sub-personalities and psychosynthesis, the vastly important topic of ‘Nature versus Nurture’ (are you the product of your Nature or your nurture, and extrapolation from the birth chart of the Alice Bailey Rays each person particularly comes to work with this time. There are two very worthwhile predictive systems, one to do with the unfoldement of one’s individuation which his getting to identify, know, work with and transform all the parts of what might be called one’s ‘egoic psychology’. The other is based on the Nodes of the Moon and involves pointers to the ‘whispers of one’s soul to one from the astral’ at any point in one’s life, which oddly, so often says the same thing as some major part of one’s vedic predictive astrology, although the guidance being come to by a totally different method and route.

In addition to ‘Access Bars’ I mentioned above, my partner Maggie continues to do her many worldwide healings such as Body Code, Emotion Code and Heart Wall clearing as well as Munay Ki initiations, Hypnotherapy, EFT, Metamorphic Technique, healing massage and even more!

When spiritual teachers take to the Fuhrer Bunker

fuehrerbunker This post is a study – a warning about an important facet of the personality of PurvaAshada, and how this sign can manifest in spiritual teachers.

Purvashadha is the 20th of the 27 lunar signs of Vedic astrology: the Nakshatras :

Purvashada is situated at 13’30 to 26’40 Vedic Sagittarius (so, in the western tropical zodiac, this is around 7 to 21 degrees Capricorn). I am referring here especially to where the person’s Moon falls within Purvashadha Nakshatra, but the characteristics described below will also apply to anyone with a planet or ascendant (Lagna) in PurvaAshada, especially Sun or Lagna.

The name PurvaAshada translates as ‘the former invincible one’. Its quality is invincibility. Its ruling planet is Venus and its symbols include the fan and the elephant’s tusk. Its qualities include being proud, independent, always improving, philosophical, patient in adversity, benevolent but confrontational, angry and harsh when circumstances allow it to be.

The true spiritual path of this constellation is the purification of the ego.  The path can include meditation, kundalini work and sexual therapies. But if they are not to harm themselves and others, they need to develop the realisation that he who wants to behold god will first have to wipe his feet.  Whoever wants to meet the cosmic dimension will have to purify his ego first. As with all the Nakshatras, there is potential great power. But it must also be understood that with PurvaAshada spiritual teachers there are great dangers.

And the point of writing this blog now is that all of them are now into Sade Sate – see below.

Purvashada is very into superiority. They can be inspiring but do tend to over-expansion, leaps of faith and zeal: can be aggressively so. They’re secretive even masked, and thus known for their hidden talents to emerge (not necessarily fully on view). And the Venus rulership means they can be flamboyant and enticing.

They have the intense conviction that they cannot lose. And I have seen this create dreadful scripts when they become spiritual teachers. Their nature tends to being insensitive even cruel. They won’t easily take into account the feelings and emotions of those around them. Because they are into superiority, they can surround themselves with disempowered side-kicks who are always asking question that further disempower the side-kicks, not least because the PurvaAshada loves formula and will regurgitate it in an inauthentic way disconnected from the reality of peoples’ feelings and the true nature of events. As with all spiritual teachers, there is the risk that pone of the sidekicks will put on Jack Boots and keep the other followers in line. Methods of getting payments of money can be an issue. As is the case with so many spiritual teachers these days, they will have a train of not so perceptive followers who will press the ‘LIKE’ button compulsively every time the leader posts on Face Book! There can be a lot of suffering for the children of Purvashadha spiritual teachers. They can be neglected and get into grief while the parent is globe-tripping round the glitzy retreat centers. They can be told to pack their bags if their tears become too great due to the neglect occasioned by the rising spiritual teacher’s program and the attractions of the friendship-seeking side-kicks. There is a risk for the followers of Purvashadha spiritual teachers. If one of the followers gets disempowered or is harmed by the teaching or by the side-kick assistant spiritual teachers, the harmed person should expect no sympathy whatsoever. And what happens to them thus can be serious. On occasions it can be really dire and they can end up broken. Really the PurvaAshada spiritual teachers are born natural show-offs. They seem pleasant and bubbly beneath a suitably serious demeanor, but they are certainly immune to the fates of followers who get crushed by the band-wagon.

I mentioned above that they are all in Sade Sate now. All PurvaAshada Moons This is because their Nakshatra falls wholly within the Vedic sign of Sagittarius . And since Saturn entered the Vedic sign of Scorpio in November 2014, all PurvaAshada Moon people are in Sade Sate.

Sade Sate: This is the accurate and difficult Vedic Astrology Teaching of Saturn transiting the sign before the Moon occupies in your birth chart, the sign the Moon occupies in your birth chart, and the sign after that.

Events will happen now that will send them to ‘reckoning time’ now, or make them face the truth and change. A lot depends on how insensitive, formulaic, proud they are, and how propped up by their side-kicks and their formulae.

It takes Saturn twenty eight to twenty-nine years to orbit the Sun and two and a half years to transit each of the twelve signs, so the whole experience of Saturn’s transit through the three signs lasts seven and a half years.

It is like going down into a pit, cut off from God’s grace so 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 is when Saturn actually transits across the Moon in your birth chart. Here is the relevant time-scale:

  1. Sade Sate starts when Saturn enters Vedic Scorpio, the sign before the Moon sign: November 2014.
  2. Saturn finally becomes established in Vedic Sagittarius, the sign of these peoples’ natal Moon: October 2017.
  3. Saturn leaves Sagittarius and enters the sign after the Moon: Vedic Capricorn, in January 2020 and

Sade Sate finally ends: January 2023 when Saturn finally leaves Vedic Capricorn. .

 

So my point is that these spiritual teachers will have a very hard time as Saturn conjucnts their Moon if they do not examine how the above negative potentialities of Purva Ashada are manifesting in their lives and teaching and their treatment of their followers. The more pride and fixity a person has during Sade Sate, the more they themselves suffer. The suffering is there of course in any person’s Sade Sate to impel us to resolve out negative scripts. What these teachers must not do is be like Hitler and wall themselves up ‘invincibly’ in their Fuhrer bunkers.

What can you expect at the end of a Dasa or ‘predictive period’ in your Vedic Astrology?

Life can seem such a battle.

In the sure and powerfully-declarative Vedic astrology, a sequence of Vedic predictive periods called Dasas (or Dashas) will unfold inexorably from the moment you are born. And there are sub-periods within these (called bhuktis or antars). The start point of your Dasa sequence depends on the position of the Moon at the moments of your birth.

Each Dasa period is ruled by one of the planets in your Vedic birth chart. Thus each dasa will send you an imperative that will encapsulate your special gifts, creativities, skills and past life merits that you incarnated to work with this time around its ruler planet. And each planet will also encapsulate the negative karmas you bring in around that planet.

So, what can you expect at the end of your Vedic predictive period? What can you expect when you enter the final bhukti in that Dasa?

I personally am interested in this question because I enter the final bhukti of my current Rahu Dasa, namely Rahu-Mars, this year: on 31st October 2015. I started in my Rahu dasa in November 1998 (just as I was commencing a five year university based social anthropological ethnographic field study of spiritual forms new to the modern West) and I will end the Rahu dasa in November 2016.

The guidance is that although there can be destabilising circumstance at the time of the final bhukti because the whole backdrop of your life is about to profoundly alter from one Dasa to the next, also as regards being in the final bhukti, you must prepare yourself for an intensification of the energy that has characterised the whole Dasa. Develop perception. Review your life. Raise your consciousness. Use healing techniques to loosen any blocks to your succeeding.

What you have been working on all through this dasa will ‘ripen’ now.

Feelings will arise during the final bhukti, events will manifest which will serve to intensify the process, and thus impel you to complete the process. These could be major, but they are an offering. They are a gateway to your becoming yourself. They are a gateway to your fulfilling the incarnational work of this dasa period. They are a gateway to the manifestation of your talents that you were worn to work with around the issues of the ruler planet in this period. They are a gateway to the purification of the negative scripts your soul chose to work with this time around the ruler planet.

The end of a dasa period is in many ways the intensification of the process that you went through during the whole dasa period.

The Time Serpent energy

Vishnu-Krishna I am making this brief post to reflect on my experience of Kal Sarpa Yoga: the phenomenon in Vedic Astrology where all your planets are caught between the axis of the Nodes of the Moon: Rahu and Ketu in your birth chart. Rahu and Ketu are the North and South Nodes of the Moon – always opposite each other in the birth chart.

There’s areas of debate in Vedic astrology about whether this yoga is still deemed to be effective if any of the three ‘debate cases’, namely, I would say, three areas of debate in particular as follows:

Firstly where your planets are exactly conjunct either Node,

Secondly if any of your planets are just outside the Nodal axis albeit in the same signs as the Nodes, or

Thirdly if one of your planets is ‘out on a limb’ all on its own yet all the other planets fall within the Nodal axis.
(We don’t take the outer planets of western astrology into account in defining Kal sarpa yoga.

 

I would like to say that in my experience I have found that the individual feels the Kal Sarpa yoga energy not only in the ‘pure’ example of all planets inside the Nodal Axis, but also in the case of these three ‘debate cases’ as well.

 

OK, so what is the Kal Sarpa energy? What will it mean in your life if you have Kal Sarpa Yoga in your Vedic birth chart?

 

First of all: what are the Nodes of the Moon? As so often in astrology, the ancient myth gives us some clue.

 

At the feast of the Gods, a demon serpent slid in between the Sun and the Moon and slurped the nectar of immortality proper to the Gods, luminaries and planets. Lord Vishnu discovered the thief and beheaded the interloper. The demon serpent’s cut off-head became Rahu; his headless body became Ketu, however the two halves had become immortal. This was because they had drunk the nectar before the beheading took place.

 

Why are the Nodes demons? Well, it is because of their dark power. The Nodes of the Moon are the eclipse points, the intersection of the apparent orbits of the Sun and the Moon round the earth. And eclipses are our darkness. This is because they have the power even to devour the Sun or the Moon. So in our birth charts, they are our greatest darkness, but thus, because Vedic astrology is tantric, also the gateways to our enlightenment if only we can learn to perceive and understand them correctly and purify them accordingly. So the Nodes of the Moon are demonic energies until we understand them. Rahu is the driven energy of this life time getting us to where we incarnated to get in terms of expressing our talents, learning the selected lessons. Ketu is the sharp dissolving energy revealing our past life in our birth chart. Both are totally spiritual; both are hard to learn how to handle.

 

So that about the destiny of a Kal Sarpa Yoga person, where all his or her planets are caught up in the Nodes of the Moon?
Obviously the manifestation will be different dependent upon the signs and houses the Nodes fall in in your birth chart, and especially what planets conjunct the Nodes, but one meaning is that the person’s life/consciousness has the challenge of being imbalanced. The person will be stuck in some sort of imbalanced mode of consciousness and living in a conscious or unconscious way. Think of it: all planets in one half of the chart. A second facet of the meaning is that the person’s energy can be very lunar (indeed fluctuating) if all the planets are in the western half of the chart; or very solar and ‘me first if they’re all in the eastern half. Imbalanced personality can undermine health, stability, mental soundness, mental stability or success. And a third feature is that this energy can be very divisive. Maggie Thatcher had Kal sarpa yoga. She divided a nation! Joseph Goebbels had it: Adolph Hitler’s propaganda minister. Obviously you have to check the signs the Nodes are in in your personal birth chart to really understand how this yoga will manifest in your life. Jawahar Nehru India’s first Prime Minister had it. Dhirubhai Ambani the famous Indian businessman had it and his whole rise to power was marked by allegations of international subterfuge, and his empire seeded the divisiveness of his sons. Nelson Mandela had it and half his life was spent in prison. The risk is that Kal sarpa will bring an excess of serpent energy into your chart for you to deal with, which can, if in negative signs include such features as venom, secrecy, delusion, link to mass movements, ranting, driven energies or proneness to sudden melt-down. Of course, these features can be purified and healed.

 

And what about the third case above where all the planets are inside the nodal axis but one planet is on a limb outside it. I think this gives great instability for the out-on-a-limb planet! This is especially hard if the on-a-limb planet is the Moon. Iris Murdoch the British novelist had kal sarpa yoga with Moon on a limb outside it, and she went demented and some of her novels hold the icon of enlightened spiritual teachers yet neurotic and perverted followers (The Bell, The unicorn). And to have Venus three creates a tough script for love.

Feeling the Phases of the Moon more

shark I thought it worth saying that when you are in a Moon predictive period in Vedic Astrology, you will feel the Phases of the Moon all the more. They will have a bigger effect on your Mind.

I am writing this post because I felt very strongly the New Moon today on 16th June 2015. This was an aggressive destabilising energy as far as I was concerned, and indeed the New Moon was conjunct Sun and a combust Mars.

I am not saying it is bad to feel the energies more acutely. Indeed if we are open to the revelations and the freeing of our blocks which hare limiting us, these Moon Phases are gateways to our freedom and gateways to our best and most creative self-expression. That is why, as you will see from my website www.starwheelastrology.com I link astrology with a range of healing and empowering techniques.

Some anecdotes about the energy of this New Moon: I went to the barbers this morning, and the barber was harassed and said he was ‘having a rough day’ with interruptions and losing things. And on the news there was an incident about two teenagers who had had an arm torn off each of them, an hour apart, by a shark while they were swimming off a Carolina beach, and then another news item where a wild boar got into a garden in Germany and savaged a man and his son and the boar was then shot by German police. Just random indicators entering my mind from the news: but, as I’ve been saying in previous posts, the closeness of Mars and Sun in recent weeks has led to periodic peaks of aggressive energy for the Mind to deal with all this time.

It is good to be prepared for the fact that if you are in a Moon period in your Vedic Astrology, you will be all the more affected by the Moon.

One very useful way of dealing with unsteadiness of the mind is reciting mantra. Maggie and I recite 108 mantra to Lord Shiva daily at the moment. We are both in a Moon period in our predictive astrology (see below).

But it is not just Moon Phase (Full and New Moon) that you will feel all the stronger if you are in a moon predictive period. You will also feel even more than at other times, the change in the background energy around us all, when the Moon crosses other planets in the heavens and you’ll feel more acutely the energy-changes as the Moon move from own sign to another and from one Nakshatra (Lunar Sign) to another. Vedic astrology has a wonderful and powerful lunar zodiac of 27 Nakshatras as well as the 12 Sun-signs.

And of course you will also feel it even more strongly when the Moon goes across the position of a planet in your own personal birth chart.

Another difficult feature of Moon energy just at present is definitely that once a month the Moon transits between Rahu (the North Node of the Moon) which is currently in Vedic Virgo and Saturn currently retrograde in Vedic Scorpio. This period of a few days each month will be felt by everyone, but it’s even harder for people with a Vedic Libran emphasis. This is because these two malefics have been hemming in Libra in since November 2014 and this will last until mid-July 2015.

Indeed, for all the astrology of this month, see my Astrology forecast page for June 2015 on my website: .

1. Vedic Astrology: June 2015:

Mars and the Sun: Mars transiting alongside the Sun in Vedic Taurus, reaching exact combust June 15, then both moving into Vedic Gemini. It will depend on our level of consciousness, our management of our Mind and our life, our work/rest balance and our caring for our relationships, whether this will be driven hard work, arguing and then exhaustedly falling into a heap, or whether it will be organised achievement and focus! Deal with frustration and fear. Fiery Mars in Vedic Gemini from June 15th to June 30th can be entrepreneurial burnout! OR you can harness it into successful writing and communication for example. Sun is in Vedic Gemini June 15th to July 15th.
When Mars or any other planet transits so close to the orb of the Sun that it becomes ‘Combust’ or burnt and obscured by the power of the Sun, this is actually a good time to purify the negative aspects of Mars energy like anger, irritation, aggression and self-centeredness.
The energy of Vedic Gemini at its best is summed up by its deity ‘Mitra’ and so Gemini can bring good energies to this Sun-Mars conjunction from June 15th.

Mercury: Guard your Mind especially as Mercury is retrograde at this time too, and is in Taurus conjunct Mars and Sun – beware impatience and restlessness of communication. Beware hostile speech especially picking on people and making a point. Guard your Mind also during the periods when Moon in the heavens transits past Rahu in Vedic Virgo and Saturn in Vedic Scorpio, an especially hard time for Vedic Librans.

Venus and Jupiter are conjunct in Vedic Cancer from the start of June until 14th June when Jupiter moves into Vedic Leo. They reach exact conjunction on June 30th at 28 deg Vedic Cancer. This whole period can be benevolent and expansionary now, and lead to success, but also avoid wanting too much and therefore overwhelm. Preserve balance and focus of consciousness. Express and balance your sensual and creative needs. Avoid indulgence! You will be called to re-evaluate all this when Venus turns retrograde from July 25th. So, for the entire month, the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is visible in the Vedic sign of Cancer: two bright planets coming ever closer as the June progresses, in the western sky after sunset. Venus and Jupiter together form dwiguru yoga (two teacher union), bringing us at their highest, great force of guidance and knowledge.

The Moon begins and ends the month in Vedic Scorpio (with Saturn being around 4 Scorpio too!). Guide your ship firmly through the intense and choppy emotions, the hidden fears,  the buried fears, the aggressively-defended blocks, the uncertainty. Moon is debilitated in Vedic Scorpio!
The Full Moon is in Vedic Scorpio June 2nd when Moon and Saturn are in Jyestha lunar sign (Nakshatra), and Sun is in Rohini.
The New Moon in Vedic Gemini June 16, thus conjunct the Sun of course. Take it easy this day.
Mars is opposition Saturn. Saturn contracts and negates; Mars drives, fights and competes. A hard combination of energies to ride!

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 3 – Positive and Negative Meaning in your Life

Life can seem such a battle.

‘Positive’ and ‘Negative’ are the terms used to describe astrological phenomena that are seen in your birth astrology or in your predictive astrology.

These terms used to describe the energies of the Planets, Signs, Houses, and Aspects and their interactions with each other.

Life can seem such a battle dealing with one thing after another. But what do these terms really mean?

To take an example, let’s look at the possible manifestations of the aspect: Mercury conjunct Mars which is in the heavens as this Post is being written.

+              the power of resolution or determination. Love of discussion or argument. The ability to judge. Practical disposition. Skill or dexterity. Quickness at repartee. Impressive speaking. Retaliation.

–            rashness, exaggeration. Quarrel. Grumbling. Fault-finding. Obstinacy and willfulness. Irritability. Nervousness. The utilization of other people’s ideas for one’s own benefit.

BIOLOGICAL: the motor-nervous system. Spastic paralysis. Nerve irritation. An increased sensitivity of reflex action

SOCIOLOGICAL: the critic. The speaker in a discussion group

PROBABLE MANIFESTATIONS:

+                 achieving success through spirit of enterprise and power of determination

–                  getting involved in disputes or controversies or law suits. Bringing about disputes.

The point is that all energies can be experienced as either ‘Good’ or ‘Bad’ depending on the individual’s view and insight, depending on their level of experience, depending on their level of awareness or enlightenment.

Looking back on situations where we deemed the manifestation of an energy to be Negative it’s possible that we may later see it as having some Positive attributes contained within it.  The developmental stage of the individual has much to do with how they perceive events and feelings.

Manifestations of the energies can also occur on many levels, such as Social, Biological, and Psychological.  A combination of what is seen as Positive and Negative can arise simultaneously and also at different times in a person’s life. The energies simply indicate where opportunities for opening ourselves to a better awareness of our capabilities – and greater self-understanding is possible. Even as a result of bad experiences we can learn a lot, though we often may rely on the teaching and help of others to be able to do this.

Aspects in the birth chart such as conjunction, sextile, trine for example are generally categorised into ‘Harmonious’ and aspects such as conjunction, opposition, square, quincunx and semi-sextile are generally categorised as  ‘Challenging’. The Harmonious aspects are interpreted with more of a positive angle than the Challenging which is often seen as Negative. But care should be taken with this general view.

The Negative interpretation of the Challenging or stressful aspects as being malefic is due to the tension inherent in the energy dynamic which can cause anxiety and suffering and it’s difficult to ignore them. But this energy emphasises where we need to become more aware and responsible for the quality of our actions and where there’s potential for a heightening of our level of consciousness and understanding. We therefore see that these Challenging aspects can be ultimately stimulating us to see where we can achieve something in life, so there can be a Positive interpretation of this. This is such an important point to understand.

The so-called Challenging aspects are strongly activating and character-building, but they also can be the cause of aggression of some kind.

So much depends on our level of awareness.
And courage may be needed to overcome them.

Some people may be stimulated by challenges more than others therefore they may not be affected so adversely. An overview of the rest of the chart is needed to see in what way this can be handled to benefit the person involved.

Positive attributes are more often than not given to the ‘Harmonious’ aspects or chart aspect shapes in our charts due to their giving a pleasurable, easy feeling, but this feeling can become a habitual or addictive pattern of behaviour which if not worked on may mean the loss of the energy or even loss of the talent inherent in the flow.

For example the chart aspect shape called a Grand Trine, can indicate a particular talent (depending on where the planets involved are situated). But it’s often the case that the talent goes unrecognised if its use hasn’t been required in a person’s life, or if there is a laziness with regard to using it. In these cases, the talent can be lost. Trines are lazy aspects. They need to be consciously understood and worked on.

So these free flowing Blue aspects can also cause a lot of pain just like the Red challenging aspects if we become stuck in old ways that have become too comfortable. They are part of our character and want to be recognised so in their own way they can be very demanding.

Let’s look at the signs: The signs in the Western birth chart are each ruled by one or more of the planets i.e. they exemplify the energy of that planet in their manifestation.

An Aries character, for instance, is ruled by Mars. If the Sun is placed in Aries in your birth chart, here could indicate a fiery energy needing to express itself in an action orientated, adventurous, or dominant kind of way which they would enjoy and find those attributes ‘positive’, ‘beneficial’ and ‘easy to live with’. Others might be appalled at your ‘me first’ assertion of course!

Yet a Pisces Sun’s dreamy and easy going  nature could experience Aries/Mars energy as ‘Negative’, ‘over powering’  and ‘exhausting’ and ‘challenging to be around’.

Having Mars in the sign Cancer in your birth chart would be seen as inharmonious as this would be again a ‘fire with water’ steamy combination of energies. But even though the Mars energy may not fit easily with watery Cancer and could bring a depletion of energy and may dampen the spirit to action, it could be harnessed in the way of directing the energy towards protecting and caring for the family where it may be able to express itself more easily.

This all of course also depends on the other dynamics going on in the chart.

In Predictive Astrology, Transits to natal planets and their aspects etc. can act as trigger points for the energies they hit, stimulating our conscious awareness of them.

The important point is that our level of comprehension of the energy they bring, whether they are manifesting in the outer or inner world or both, brings our free will into play as to how we view or use the energy. The more insight we develop, the more free will we develop.

It is the Higher spirit, the Universal energy, ‘God within us’ that is urging us to grow and our view of  ‘fortunate’ or ‘unfortunate’ is not inherent in the energy – it’s just a view.

All this reminds me of a tale I read many years ago which I love: The Parable of the Chinese Farmer

Once there was a Chinese farmer who worked his poor farm together with his son and their horse. When the horse ran off one day, neighbours came to say, “How unfortunate for you!” The farmer replied, “Maybe yes, maybe no.”

When the horse returned, followed by a herd of wild horses, the neighbours gathered around and exclaimed, “What good luck for you!” The farmer stayed calm and replied, “Maybe yes, maybe no.”

While trying to tame one of wild horses, the farmer’s son fell, and broke his leg. He had to rest up and couldn’t help with the farm chores. “How sad for you,” the neighbours cried. “Maybe yes, maybe no,” said the farmer.

Shortly thereafter, a neighbouring army threatened the farmer’s village. All the young men in the village were drafted to fight the invaders. Many died. But the farmer’s son had been left out of the fighting because of his broken leg. People said to the farmer.

“What a good thing your son couldn’t fight!” “Maybe yes, maybe no,” was all the farmer said.

Everything is connected to the intelligent Universal energy, but humans are very rarely able to perceive the divine meaning in the order of things.

Like the Yin and Yang, everything encompasses both light and dark; the balance of doing and being, positive and negative.

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 2 – Nature versus Nurture – How does this affect Love in your Life?

Great value can be received from an Astrology reading that includes psychodynamic Astrology.

One of the techniques of psychodynamic astrology is to interpret what your nature is and then compare this to a statement of the effect of your nurture.

What are we? Are we our nature? or are we the result of our nurture?

In astrology, the chart of our nature is the birth chart often called the ‘Radix chart’. The chart of our nurture is the House chart.

In our Radix or birth chart, note that the signs areof equal size. This is because ‘planets in signs’ are deemed to be our nature: our inherited nature.

In our House chart, however, note that by contrast the houses are of equal size. This is because houses show the effect of our environment in our life, and of all our environments, our earliest environment or our ‘nurture’ is of course the key influence overlying our nature.

Sometimes our ‘nurture’ or our upbringing (especially our earliest upbringing), improves what our nature offers us.

But other times we find that our nurture/upbringing skews what we are away from our nature, sometimes in a terribly difficult and major way.

In my astrology readings, I include a nature versus nurture analysis.

In our example, this person has a romantic and visionary Neptune-Venus aspect in their birth chart which is their nature. See chart 1 below. Venus is a prime indicator for love in your life.

However, as you can see from this person’s House Chart which is the chart of nurture/upbringing (chart 2, below), this person’s earliest environment has brought Venus into an angry impatient square (90 deg aspect) with Uranus. Not good: Uranus tends to soar above relationships, always wanting the new. In mythology, Uranus ate his children.

In fact it is very helpful insight to have your birth chart and your House chart compared. This way you can be shown  how they will make you live your life.

The comparison is done in terms of modalities (cardinal, fixed and mutable) and also Elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water). Chart 3, below,  is the comparison Table for the person described in this example.

As you can see from the Table, this person has been made far Cardinal: far more impatient (for love and to be noticed) than is their nature.
They have also been made to dig their heels in (more Fixed).
And they have been made unconfident about trying out anything different from their habitual patterns (mutability reduced).
Their Fire has been put out and their Water increased leaving them to dwell in hurt sensitivity but also become a lot more sensitive and psychic.

‘Nature versus Nurture’ issues need to be made clear, and their meaning needs to be understood, if we are to heal our lives. It is as simple as that

Trained astrological guidance on this sort of thing is invaluable. Of course it has to be expert and it has to be positive and empowering.

It can be coupled with counselling sessions. Or it can be healed by releasing bodily held distress which the existence of these cut off planets in your birth chart points to. An example of a healing approach is Maggie Pashley at www.bodycodehealing.co.uk and clearing your heart blocks to love: http://www.bodycodehealing.co.uk/heart-walls.html

Blog Psychodynamic Astrology Readings 1 – Cut off Planets

Great value can be received from an Astrology reading that includes psychodynamic Astrology .

One of the techniques of psychodynamic astrology is to interpret the meaning of planets that are ‘cut off’ from the rest of the chart.

In our first example, this person has a cut off romantic and visionary Neptune-Venus aspect, indeed is pointed into Earth Spirituality too, because Neptune is near the IC the bottom of the chart. The chart is shown below.

But this beautiful aspect is in practice ‘cut off’ from the rest of his chart by the red Saturn-Mars square aspect which is implacable, unremitting hard work.

In our second example, this person even has a ‘cut off Sun’, where Sun in the birth chart is the divine charioteer who directs and controls the chariot of self. The chariot is cut off from the charioteer in her case. Again, the chart is shown below.

Note that her Sun is considered ‘cut off’ by the constant irritation of the nagging Chiron-Venus semi-sextile which is all about a wound to value, a wound to acceptance of the body, also manifesting as the ability to be loving to people/situations where most would not: the person trained to endlessly help others.

These cut of aspects need to be made clear and their meaning needs to be understood, if we are to heal our lives. It is as simple as that

Trained astrological guidance on this sort of thing is invaluable. Of course it has to be expert and it has to be positive and empowering.

It can be coupled with counselling sessions. Or it can be healed by releasing bodily held distress which the existence of these cut off planets in your birth chart points to. An example of a healing approach is my partner Maggie Pashley at http://www.bodycodehealing.co.uk
