Child Astrology Readings with Michael Conneely

child astrology 2To understand your child’s life, you could not do better than book a Child Astrology Reading from me:


This is because, exceptionally, I combine expert Western astrology with Vedic Astrology. And more than that, my readings are always linked to healing and empowerment techniques such as the many healing modalities you can see on the relevant website page, art therapy and also embodiment techniques.

My child astrology reading will so strongly support your understanding of your child. It will so strongly promote your best parenting of your child. This applies to children of all ages.


Within western child astrology, my specialisms are psychodynamic astrology and evolutionary astrology

Sub Personalities:

Psychodynamic astrology provides the most accurate definition of the different parts of your child’s psychology. It accurately identifies ‘sub-personalities’ your child has. One of the key methods I use to identify your child’s psychology is analysis of the chart aspect shapes in your child’s chart. Chart aspect shapes are a powerful guide to your child’s deepest psychological motivations. They identify what parts of your child’s personality work easily together, and which parts are so different that it is hard to reconcile one with the other.

In particular, chart aspect shapes analysis is excellent for identifying which parts of us are split off: what parts actually go so far as to act as ‘unaspected sub-personalities. The need is for all of us to know even the split-off parts of ourselves, so that we will not be driven by unconscious denied parts, so that we will not swing wildly from one persona to another, bewildering ourselves and those around us.

This process of unifying our Self is called ‘individuation’ the principle method used in achieving individuation is called ‘psychosynthesis’. My reading for your child will make this clear.

Having an unaspected sub-personality means that sometimes your child may come over over-powerfully with that energy to other people, and yet have no real idea of how powerfully he or she is actually coming across with those characteristics.

It also means that that energy-principle is unconnected to the rest of your child. It could be the tail that wags the dog. It could take over his or her life. At other times your child will be unable to access and connect to its energy at all.

We all need to recognise and understand our unaspected sub-personalities. This can be done through the method of role-play psychosynthesis. It is linked to the principle of ‘Individuation’ in the psychology of Asaglione, which I use for these readings.

Nature versus Nurture:

Another invaluable technique I use to read your child’s destiny and potential is analysis of the issue of ‘Nature versus Nurture’ in his or her life.

Planets in signs are our inherited nature. Planets in houses are our nurture or upbringing. This is the ‘nature versus nurture’ debate. The Question is: Who are we: our nature or our nurture? It is so helpful to have this studied and practically interpreted.

Evolutionary Astrology:

Evolutionary Astrology is the study of incarnational life purpose, of past life scripts and how they manifest now in this life. It is especially studied in relation to the position of the Node of the Moon in your child’s birth chart. I also include an analysis of the Personal Rays manifestation in your child’s life drawing on the system Alice Bailey developed from the heritage of Alexandrian Egypt.


Vedic Astrology is the ancient astrology of India. It is unbelievably sure, powerful and accurately declarative.

Vedic Astrology has its own assessment of incarnational life purpose, that is not so psychological as that provided within evolutionary western astrology. It too is based on analysis of the Nodes of the Moon in the birth chart, but it consists more of a statement of material and spiritual gifts, challenges and growth steps your child incarnated to make in this life.

Vedic Astrology has such a sure analysis as to how the affairs of each facet of life will manifest in your child’s life.

Let me show you the simple example of the Vedic House system. Put very simply indeed, the House system is as follows. I show this simply to communicate the comprehensiveness and concrete sureness of Vedic astrology:

1st House shows the head – ego – one’s self, body, general prosperity, health and wellbeing, basic self-expression, physical constitution, personality.
2nd House
shows early childhood experiences, wealth,  gathering / holding resources, livelihood, speech, youth, financial success (or not) through career / labor. Show our tastes, food, art / poetry / capacity to communicate, how we operate and express. Right eye. Eyesight generally.
3rd House shows issues of curiosity, courage, ability to overcome obstacles, power, brother, friends, motivation, interest basic life energy, impulses and intention that drives us. Will ambition, passion, zeal, rashness impulsiveness main interests, sport, hobbies
4th House shows Mother and heredity issues and state of consciousness arising therefrom: emotion, happiness, property, mind, upbringing, education, refinement, masses, popularity, land acquisition, vehicles, what is internal, capacity to Relax, it’s afflictions are hard to overcome, most sensitive
5th House shows creative intelligence, education, speculation, romance, children, past life credit, games, spiritual practices. Creativity in general – giving birth to our ideas – children show our primal creative urge
6th House shows enemies, debts, health and disease, work and service, foreigners, pets, enemies, effort, resistance to illness, immune system. Our capacity to do hard labor – overcome physical obstacles / enemies.
7th House is the House of Long term romantic relationships, general relations with others, business associates. Being opposite the ascendant, it shows that to which we are most drawn and most challenged to learn.
8th House shows issues of sex, death, the occult, dark / hidden side of life, longevity, research, destruction / regeneration of any sort. Through the 8th house we confront our mortality. It can determine the ultimate meaning of our lives.
9th House reveals our religious, philosophical or ethical principles, grace, dharma (life purpose). Shows our highest principles operating in the world, shaping our life events, or their inability to do so. The luckiest house.
10th House is the House of Career: our public status, material achievement, skill, success, career, our effect on the world. Politics. Strong planets here override even the ascendant for importance.
11th House shows how gains will manifest in our life: aspirations and goals, financial and material gains, friendship, impulse, abundance and excess. Ability to project our intelligence on the world. Where we expand. Planets here show their expansive nature.
12th House shows our subconscious, hidden nature, loss, liberation, decrease, wastage of energy. Foreign journeys. Connection to spiritual and other institutions. It shows the individual negated by adversity into sorrow or negated by inner peace to enlightenment. Left eye.

The Vedic Planets:

Study of your child’s planets in his or her Vedic birth chart gives the most profound guidance. For example, total consciousness is assessed by considering the following three planets: Sun as Atma (soul), the Moon as Manas (Mind) and Mercury as Buddhi (intellect).
Every planet is assessed both for mundane manifestation and as a key to your child’s best Dharma: his or her spiritual path.

The Nakshatras, the Vedic Lunar Zodiac: Additionally, Vedic astrology also employs an even more ancient zodiac than the 12 sun-signs: this is the immeasurably powerful lunar zodiac of 27 signs. It depicts our realities in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful. These 27 lunar signs are called ‘Nakshatras’.

The positions of the lunar signs were more easily visible to ancient astrologers because they are quite simply the position of the Moon in the heavens on each of the 27 days the Moon takes to orbit the Earth. Because the lunar signs are so ancient, they are powerful and magical and pre-rational, and each of them has a ‘power animal’ that can be used for many purposes of understanding, including the identification of the best marriage partner for your child. This system is immensely sophisticated in the Nakshatra interpretive techniques it uses such as Navatara, Nara chakra (health statement) and Nadi (special) Nakshatras. Its vast and sure systems of sign rulerships and qualities will throw immense meaning onto your understanding of your child’s life.

Myriad Special features: Vedic Astrology has a legion of special features that Western astrology does not know of. Just to name a very, very few these include Gandanta (the identification of degrees that are especially dangerous is we have a planet fall within them in our birth chart), Manasa (the identification of our root state of consciousness), Dashas (a most accurate system of Predictive periods that unfold inexorably from the moment of our birth), Karakas (the way in which each planet operates as a special indicator, especially the Atmakaraka or ‘soul indicator’ within our life). The list is endless and it is so invaluable to have this interpretation.
