Your Lunar and Solar Self: Astrology Mini-Course with Michael Conneely

It is so necessary to know your Lunar Self and your Solar Self.

These are splendid divine archetypes in your life.

But until you know them, you are doing your self down, and you can be blindly pulled in two opposite directions.

Enroll on my Astrology Mini Course 1: Your Lunar and Solar Self.

Your Solar Self is magnificently accurately declared by Vedic astrology. It clearly defines how your Sun will manifest in your life and over time: The Sun is your father. The Sun is your sense of egoic self.

The ‘featured image’ for this Blog post is the moment of Solstice at a Megalith of the ancient Irish near where I live’ They experienced the healing and empowering union of Sun, Earth and Moon.

Most importantly, the Sun is the divine charioteer who drives the chariot of your Self. The image of the Sun as your Divine Charioteer is most important. The Sun drives the chariot of your Self. He holds in his hands the reins that go to the horses that draw the chariot: the other planets in your Vedic birth chart. If the Sun is too strong, he burns and dominates and can be cruel. But if the Charioteer is weaker than the horses, then the chariot of your Self won’t be able to chart a course in your life. Maybe a much stronger Venus will completely overturn your chariot! Maybe a much stronger Mars will land you in fights you never wanted! And so on!!!
How strong is your Sun???
And at another level, your Sun is also your Atma, you own special spark of the supreme divine.

Your Lunar Self is very different from your Solar Self. It is based on how the Moon stands in your Vedic birth chart, and how it unfolds through the years of your life. Your Lunar self is based on your mothering and heredity and how that shapes your emotions and your sensitivities and your intuitive powers – and, in fact, your Consciousness arising therefrom.

My Astrology Mini Course 1 focuses on the Moon and the Sun in your astrology chart. And this Astrology Mini-Course comes complete with study of your Ascendant also called your Rising Sign/Lagna). We work together to show how this defines how you will project yourself into the world, and in what way it will relate to your Solar nature and your Lunar Nature.

Your Lunar Self and your Solar Self also depict your Feminine dimension and your Masculine dimension. Together we study how the three of these, inter-relate to create and weave your personality and your destiny. This is such a worthwhile opportunity: a learned and caring completely individual course to make a depth study into three utterly core components of your destiny and your personality – and how to transform and heal these where necessary and indicated.

Most importantly, I am totally open to sharing with you journeying techniques, energy work, mantra and visualisation so as to greatly build upon and develop your personal experience of the three great themes being studied in respect of both of our two lives. 

So, let’s ask the key question: ‘Well, what’s the point of doing this?’

One reason is that it’s so immensely worthwhile to develop our perception of these three great facets of our nature, and work out how best to manage or develop, heal and empower them.

Another great benefit from this Mini-Course Option is that it is so useful to hear how contradictions in our Lunar nature and our Solar nature and our Ascendant/Lagna nature may exist: these can be very different, even contradictory ‘selves’, and this can greatly confuse ourselves, our loved ones and our friends!
With this deep perception, we can transform. We can decide how to best strategize our life circumstances and direction. ​And we can decide if some form healing or empowerment work is needed.

Whether you have just basic astrological knowledge, or whether you are highly proficient in astrological techniques in Vedic astrology and/or Western Astrology, this ‘Lunar and Solar Self’ Mini-Course gives you such a blessed opportunity to take an in-depth study on a crucial and very special theme in your life. You will find I am completely supportive, and extremely well-versed in Western and Vedic Astrological techniques. Genuinely, I can take your study to any depth you wish to go to. I am used to tutoring people with very advanced Astrology qualifications. My experience, knowledge, expertise and great care, all mean that a truly wonderful opening of knowledge, illumination, healing and empowerment will come to both of us in the chosen area of these crucially special and very important Astrology Mini-Course studies.

Your Focus of Study:
As with all my courses, the focus of study on the selected special Mini-Course theme, is studied with reference to two charts: yours and mine. The benefit of this approach is that it ensures authenticity and trust. We develop an excellent working relationship.

There’s the very special benefit that I am extensively trained in both Vedic and Western astrology, I have a wide academic background, I have spent five years studying individuals and communities following spiritual pathways new to the modern West, and above all I am very caring and I pride myself in supportively enabling and developing your studies as far as your need to go. In addition, I run a healing Centre in the West of Ireland together with my partner Maggie Pashley and so we work with a wide range of healing modalities face to face there, as well as worldwide by internet, and so, very importantly, I am able to gear your astrological project of study to your healing and empowerment and to the achievement of the very special spark you came here to manifest.

My Tuition Approach:
My tuition approach in these Mini-Courses is always so caring and expert. I am so very dedicated to supporting your study, your self-knowledge, your healing and empowerment – the fulfillment of your totally best destiny.

I was an undergraduate at Oxford University in the late sixties and so I bring to you the very best of the Oxford University tutorial system. This is focused individual tuition with the aim of bringing out the very best in the student. Totally individual dialogue between student and tutor is conducted, in this case by email.

I have five university degrees, including two from the University of Oxford. I have qualifications in Counselling. ​I have studied many astrology courses covering both Vedic and Western Astrology.

My background:
​I have also taken part in a five-year university-based field study, a social-anthropological ethnography based mainly in Glastonbury. This involved studying Communities, Institutions and Individuals following Spiritual Pathways new to the modern West. ​The focus pathways were Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, shamanism and utopian community.

​Over the five-year period, I thus lived in and studied in a Hindu Ashram, with Tibetan Buddhist Gompas within the NKT, in a FWBO Centre as well as at Sharpham College and Gaia House Buddhist centres. I also conducted participant observation in Wiccan and Druid groups in Glastonbury, in Shamanic Journeying and Healing courses and groups, and lived for a time in a ‘Bender Site’ near Glastonbury: a community dedicated to ‘tread lightly on the Earth, and also worked and taught in a New Age Travellers’ Craft and Education centre. I feel that I gained vast awareness of these spiritual pathways, their strengths and weaknesses, their visions and inspirations, all of which I can share with you through my worldwide Readings and Courses.
