Have an astrology prediction for your year ahead!

Michael Web Photo 6 smileMy astrology predictions are unusual and special because they combine both western and Vedic Astrology. I also have a specialist child astrology service.

You can go to my website to order a Prediction: www.starwheelastrology.com. You get a recorded interview, charts, rapports and the opportunity for emailed discussion/questions afterwards.

I am suggesting you consider a Prediction for yourself or your loved ones, now, especially, because certain big phases are coming to end and around now, and some big changes are coming in that will affect you for the next 18mths to two and a half years.

With the Nodes of the Moon changing Vedic signs some of these changes will be quite unexpected. And with Saturn changing Vedic signs shortly, other changes will be deep, major, separative and karmic. Consolidation and completion of lessons will be important immediately ahead.

Depending on the House of your birth chart that these key changes occur in, there will be big changes, that you will maybe need help to perceive, understand and work with, in career, love, children and spiritual path.

You can expect your life to change rapidly by the next eclipse on October 8th. Getting a Prediction from me will help you understand and work with these changes.

RETROSPECTIVE: It has been a very tough time for some lately, especially if they have planets in late Libra or in Scorpio (using the signs in western astrology), because Saturn and Rahu (the North Node of the Moon) have been and still are retrograding there.

And I personally found the recent retrograde of Mars in this part of the zodiac really excoriating, because Mars was opposite my Moon. There was a death in the family at this time as an expression of both Saturn and Rahu retrograding in aspect to my partner’s Moon in her birth chart. And I myself ran into some major digestive system inflammation by the end of Mars retrogradation opposite my Moon in my birth chart. (then found I had developed gluten intolerance: yes this really is an advert for the wonders of Gluten-free bread!!!).

But there have also been some great gains over the recent period. Saturn does indeed send us hard lessons, but we need these hard lessons in order to let go parts of our personality that need to die, and to lose from our life parts that should no longer be part of us. And remember, it is the truth that Saturn really does reward patience and hard work and spiritual diligence. He offers us his golden reaping instead of his grim reaping. For example, we ourselves have been rewarded and blessed to have followed since Christmas the Shaktipat transmissions/kundalini meditations of Steven Sadleir in the US (he is in the middle of what will be probably his last 12-week initiation this year) and also Helen Hamilton in UK (who will be starting a new 12-week initiation in July). With both of them you dial in to hear the ‘Precept’ (of which there are 12) and as you listen you receive the energy and thus you re-calibrate your own upwards. This is the initiation. In case you are interested, here are the websites for reference: Steven: www.selfawareness.com .  Helen: www.manifestmydreams.weebly.com .

THE TIME AHEAD: But I am writing this Blog suggesting you get a combined western and Vedic Prediction because everything is about to change.

We are all about to move into a very new and very different landscape of consciousness and events though.

Here are just a few of the details of the changes immediately ahead:

Mars goes direct now

Jupiter newly enters Vedic sign of Cancer where he is exalted.

Saturn retrogrades, goes on station in July and then changes Vedic sign on 3rd November (after two and a half years in the same sign)

The Nodes of the Moon change Vedic sign in Vedic Astrology July 13th.

N.B. You don’t have to go into the details i give here, but for those who are interested in them, here’s a little more detail, covering the run-up time to the next Eclipse (the 8th October lunar Eclipse):

Mars ceased retrograding on May 20th, and so its expression will be less cruel, difficult and awkward in our lives. But Mars remember, Mars went retrograde on 1st March 2014 and note that Mars does not regain his pre-retrogradation position until 21st July so those of us affected will still have lessons to learn about correct use of our Mars energy until then. Note that in the sure and true prediction of Vedic astrology, the effect of a planet’s retrograde period is not over until the planet returns to its pre-retrogradation position. And retrograde planets manifest their energy ‘crookedly’ but for fuller spiritual learning if we are open to the lessons.


Jupiter has been casting a blessing on the difficult retrogrades in late Libra and Scorpio of the transiting planets Saturn, Rahu (the North Node) and Mars for a year but it moves out of Vedic or sidereal Gemini into sidereal Cancer on 25th June and this will be real blessing, optimism and expansion of our teachings and beliefs for those with sidereal Cancer Ascendants (like me) (it’s at the end of western cancer on 18th June – but the Vedic prediction is the more powerful, so I am using this as the key change date.

Saturn has been retrograding since 2nd March and those of us affected, e.g. by Saturn being conjunct our Ascendant, Sun &c, or opposite our Moon in our Birth Charts for example, these will have felt the heave, saddening influence, and will have been called upon to reap Saturn’s hard but necessary lessons. Saturn finishes retrograding and goes ‘on station’ on July 20th, but Saturn does not return to his pre-retrogradation position until 26th October: long, hard learning indeed for those affected. He enters the next Vedic sign (Vedic Scorpio) on November 3rd, with very big changes for those with Moon, Ascendant Sun in that area, or opposite, especially.

The Nodes of the Moon: There’s a really very big shift when the Nodes of the Moon change Vedic sign on July 13th (using the sidereal zodiac of Vedic astrology). The Nodes of the Moon are the indicators of your incarnational life purpose in Vedic Astrology, and when they change sign, really major spiritual shifts can appear in our lives to be perceived, understood properly and worked with.

And here are the changes in the western astrology outer planets between 1st June and the 1st October:

Uranus moves around the point 15 deg Aries (Uranus is retrograde from July 22nd to Dec 21st).


Neptune moves from 7 to 6 deg Pisces Neptune is retrograde from June 9th to Nov 16th).

Pluto moves from 13 to 11 deg Capricorn Pluto is retrograde from April 14th to Sep 23rd).

Chiron moves from 18 – 16 deg Pisces (For example Chiron is moving around opposition my Venus offering healing and growth in love) (Chiron is retrograde from June 20th to Nov 23rd)

Next Eclipse: And lastly, the 8th October lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) is at 15 Aries in western astrology at 10.51 GMT. (20 Pisces in Vedic Astrology). Eclipses have a big effect like and earthquake if they fall on your ascendant or on you planets. For example, I took a brief look at one woman’s chart last year and saw that Ketu (South Node) of the eclipse fell on her Ascendant and I predicted that her present life format would dissolve suddenly – and it did: she had to stop ‘globe-trotting’ and care for her child). The eclipse of 15th April was on the sun in my birth chart, and I had health issues that really came to a head to be sorted out and treated, but saw many good things start and doors opening to better things at the same time.
