Tuatha de Danaan – A New Novel on the Way

cover Marion Dowd The archaeology of caves in Ireland I drew an Ogham Few this morning – and got Hazel.
I took this to be major and fortunate and to mean ‘Inspiration’.
I feel this is a major ‘step out time’ for me now.
I have been working very long hours mostly on Vedic Astrology for some months, but last week I had a Rune Reading which started with Tir which means Victory, and yesterday I recorded an access document for my Rune Course to make visionary contact with the Norse Goddess Freya and a drumming journey to meet Her, and these ‘broke the dam’.
So drawing Hazel this morning confirms I am inspired to now bring through into the form realm my next novel which I have been researching for months.
As a final step of preparation which I will make concurrent to doing the first pieces of writing of the novel, I shall start with composing access guides to the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish such as the Dagdha, the Morrigan, Dian Cecht and Airmid, and doing drumming journeys to meet each of them.

Ogham Course Inspiration – A Testimonial

I feel honoured to have received this lovely testimonial to my worldwide distance learning

ogham hazel coll

Ogham Course:

“Dear Michael,

Thank you for your kind comments, they are much appreciated. My Guides tell me that seer ship is enhanced through connecting to high energy training, such as the Ogham Course, by regular meditation and by working with other spiritual people. I am listening to the online workshops with Chung Fu, my work with him was truly developmental, my psychic powers were heightened, so this will be one way of developing seer ship. I have also asked my Guide, Manjushri,  to assist me in this.
‘When the student is ready, the teacher will appear’.
Your work is truly inspirational Michael, so many talents.
Sincerely,
Gillian”

Worldwide Rune Course.

rune ehwaz Enrol for my worldwide Rune Course. The Rune Course is learned and powerful. It is strong and beautiful transformation.  .

You get sent a presentation of how the Rune has been understood through the millennia. You then complete your own visionary journey for each Rune.

People also share partly on their experience of each rune, and also on using runes and rune-casts for Divination, partly to deepen their visionary connection with the Norse Gods such as Odin, Freyr, Heimdall, and partly to share and support each other on their spiritual journey at the moment. I refer to your astrology for deeper insight as well.

The horse in this picture is Sleipnir, the steed of Odin: great and powerful warrior, magician God.

Here’s what a couple of the students wrote about their experience after studying the rune Ehwaz, and completing the journey to drumming that each person gets sent for each rune:

Frank, England:
In Norse mythology Yggdrasil is represented by the yew tree. The yew tree is strong but flexible just as Odin had to be when he hung from the tree for nine days in order to gain knowledge of the runes. Surrender and sacrifice are important if you want to gain anything of significance. Payment must be made as Odin sacrifices one of his eyes. This ordeal brought a kind of death and rebirth. He had to face his inner fears, demons and dark side as we must sometimes do to progress and evolve. By facing and indeed embracing our own dark side we can bring about great transformation and regeneration. Growth and spiritual expansion follow. Facing our own demons and fears can make us stronger and less fearful and will enable us to face the challenges we face in life.

Inner journeys are implied by this rune, going down deep into the underworld just as roots of Yggdrasil do. Sinking down into hidden depths of our own very soul to discover who and what we are and what we are meant to do is represented by this rune. In order to do this we have to be very committed, determined, resourceful,  dedicated and fearless. We can take heart that if we are, the rewards can be great.

Veronica, Dallas, Texas:
I had felt a really close connection to the rune Ehwaz. For me, I do see myself as being a person who has moved and travelled. I do like to stay busy and traveling to various places has helped me in my social life as well.
The energy of Ehwaz for me, is about relating to others who have been abused. My boyfriend was abused physically, verbally, mentally and emotionally so for me, there’s a soft spot in my heart for those who’ve been hurt. I’ve also have gone through being verbally abused by others.
The energy for me, was about needing to take the time to not be tied to one place. For me, it’s ok to be busy but I’ll want to take time to rest and reflect on what is happening in my life. I see this rune, as being one of helping others to heal.
For me, my own purpose, is to assist others in their own healing on all levels of themselves. The energy of Ehwaz is about connecting with a higher source of power and wisdom a higher force, to be a guiding light in order to help others. I see this as also being a rune of inner strength.
There seems like it would be about having a two way street, receiving and giving to others, as well as experiencing a lot of energy shifting. For me, moving would be not only in a physical sense but also spiritually as this rune for me is about transition in one’s life. This is also about taking the time to find a way to be more stable.
It may be that people just like to move around and travel, though for me, there seems to come a point where I need to get to know the area which I’ve moved to, to see if I like it or not. The other message that comes to me is the bond between animal and humans.
I know others who enjoy horses, so I can relate to that, and I can tell that others who I’ve talked to enjoy riding their horse. The message for me is also about needing to take time to just be with your animal, whichever it is, and spend time with it.
I feel that in terms of the two way street, it’s in terms of communication or having a bond with someone. I see it as, having a conversation with someone back and forth, relating to them.
In relationships if one person is only talking to the person and the person isn’t talking back to them, for me communication would be only one sided which for me wouldn’t be healthy. There would need to be some form of communication between both parties involved.

Blessings but Great Tension: Vedic and Western Astrology Notes for May, June and July 2015, and onwards:

Michael Conneely

INTRODUCTION: In May 2015 and through the following weeks and months, there are clear blessings to be aware of and to thoughtfully work with – but there’s also very great tension. See below. First, my contact details:

Have a look at my worldwide astrology offering: Michael Conneely’s worldwide astrology readings website is: www.starwheelastrology.com . His worldwide Astrology Courses websites in both Vedic and Western Astrology are: www.mastervedicastrology.com   and www.enlightenedastrologycourse.com .

Phone: 07799296821
+447799296821 (from outside UK)

To return to the notes for May 2015 and onwards:

The Blessings are created first from the fact that Jupiter is transiting in Vedic Cancer, the sign of his exaltation.

The Second Blessing is due to the fact that throughout May there’s a string of three benefic planets in a row: Mercury is in Vedic Taurus, Venus in the next sign Vedic Gemini and Jupiter in the next sign after that Vedic Cancer. This formation creates a special ‘Yoga’ or combination called Adhi yoga which will be a particularly good energy for all of us but especially for those with Ascendant (Lagna) or Moon in the Vedic sign of Sagittarius, bringing them, especially, protection and spiritual opportunity.

The Third Blessing is from the fact that Mercury is in Venus-ruled sign Vedic Taurus and Venus is in Mercury-ruled sign Vedic Gemini This yoga is called Parivartana yoga and is good for all of us but especially we will feel this blessing if we have planets in the Vedic signs of Taurus, Virgo and Aquarius.

The Great Tension, on the other hand, comes through two big challenges.
The first is created by the fact that Mars is opposition Saturn in the heavens.
The second is the fact that Mercury is Retrograde from May 18th to June 11th.  Though please do read on to see below where I identify how we can actually even find blessing and personal growth out of these two challenges.

In fact, do note however, in the usual worldly sense, from the Mars – Saturn opposition, there is a big risk of tension, irritation, anger and even maniacal rage or demonic shouting and road rage – or even worse than that: throwing your toys out of the pram at this time!
On the social plane this is riot.
On the Earth plane, this is earthquake.

Western and Vedic Astrology: Note that this Report mainly uses the sure and accurate declaration of Vedic Astrology, but with some western astrology cross-over. What’s the difference? Well, Vedic Astrology is rooted in our incarnational life purpose whereas Western Astrology is attuned to our psychological self. But please note that where a western astrology sign is named, this sign starts at 24 degrees of the preceding Vedic sign. So, for example, the western sign of Aries starts at 24 Vedic Pisces.
There’s a zodiac comparison wheel at the foot of the post which makes the relationship between the western and Vedic Zodiacs clear.

MARS OPPOSITION SATURN: The reason for this violent energy pervading our minds is the fact that Mars and the Sun are close to each other in the heavens – and they are opposite Saturn:

Mars/Saturn is an implacable, dictatorial, restrictive and limiting aspect. It can be cold. It can be tense and argumentative. It does not duck conflict at all. It’s a military or concentration camp energy. Mars opposition Saturn puts us on the defensive at best, the offensive at worst at this time. If you do start a confrontation, you will likely lose because you will so hurt the other person.  It can be good for getting things done, but often in a bad spirit. It’s bad for loving relationship. It does carry an energy of death and endings.

So, to make everything this potentially vicious or fixed, Mars is opposition Saturn in the heavens from 4th May to 15th June.
Mars is in Vedic Taurus (an Earth sign, hence Earthquake). Saturn is transiting Vedic Scorpio from November 2014 to 26th October 2017.

Look at Chart 1: the Vedic chart for 4th May. It shows the moment Mars enters Vedic Taurus. You can see that Mars is in opposition a very torturously slow-moving Saturn.  Saturn is moving slowly retrograde until August 1st when he will become stationary, and then he will turn with great deliberation to move direct once more. Remember: the slower a planet’s movement, the deeper he etches his effects. And remember, when a planet is retrograde it’s effect is Vakri or twisted, manifesting in a back-handed way with the divine purpose that we will have to make extra special effort to understand his energy, his purpose, his effect.

And of course, there’s another factor is that you can see from the following chart for 4th May, Mars is conjunct Mercury in Vedic Taurus which doesn’t necessarily lead to gentle sweet speech. You have been warned. Try to use this awareness if such situations arise. Forewarned can mean fore-armed! Well, that’s the theory! That’s what we should aim for.

Chart 1: Vedic chart for 4th May 2015:

Now 4.5.2015

BUT – remember, what I have been describing is the lower consciousness meaning of the energy that the planets are filtering to us. There is also a higher consciousness meaning that we can all try to perceive and try to reach for. Please read on.

Note: the Western tropical zodiac is inside; The Vedic sidereal zodiac outside. So the direction of rotation is anti-clockwise.

Example: My Moon in my birth chart is at 29 deg Vedic Pisces, which as you can see is at 26 degrees Western Aries.

Zodiacs: Brief Explanation:
Put very simply, the two zodiacs measure different things:

The Vedic Zodiac interprets our incarnational life purpose; the western zodiac interprets our egoic psychology.
The Vedic Zodiac is anchored to a fixed star (Spica); the western zodiac by contrast starts with 0 deg Aries as the position occupied by the Sun on the day of the Vernal equinox and this shifts against the background of the stars by a degree every 72 years. The two zodiacs are thus 24 degrees apart now.
The shift in the position of the Western Zodiac is due to the Precession of the Equinoxes (caused by the wobble in the Earth’s axis of rotation).
