Worldwide Nakshatras Course and Ashiesha Nakshatra

Michael ConneelyNakshatra #9: Ashiesha Nakshatra

The Nakshatras are supremely good at depicting our emotional nature and thus our consciousness arising therefrom. They are deeply ancient and powerful celestial wisdom and reflect the lunar Zodiac: the position of the Moon in the heavens. They are profound and offer both penetratingly exact novelistic interpretation as well as simply divine perception, classification and categorization. You can learn so much about yourself. you can learn so much about the other people in your life. They are a key to life-meaning and relationships.



Here is some preliminary information about Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha Nakshatra Key Words:

Ingenious, versatile, very fluent, imaginative and artistic.
Money-minded, will do anything for money. Can be subtle cheats or liars playing mind-games with those they defraud.
Controlling of self and others.
Hypnotising, with innate reflexive use of sexual power.
Shrewd. There can be brilliance, though this is not necessarily always consistent.
Translation: the entwiner.
Power animal: The Male Cat – cleanliness, finicky, detached, indifferent.
Penetrating, intense, hypnotic.
Wise, profound, secretive; deceptive or evasive.
Ambitious and full of conviction. Business orientated and heartlessly greedy. Untrustworthy liars and cheats.
Reclusive, independent and self-reliant. Marilyn Monroe has Ashlesha Ascendant/Lagna.
Hate critics, vengeful towards humiliation.
Crafty, devious, controlling. Can be cruel and wicked, ungrateful and tactless.
Mercury, here, the Ashlesha sign ruler, can be shrewd and manipulative here and his negative sides of evasion, deception and deviousness need to be watched out for. This Nakshatra is called the entwiner. It ensnares and entangles. It controls.
With the weaker representatives of Ashlesha Nakshatra, there is the risk of mental instability, worry, fear and melancholy for some. The sensitive nervous system can be prone to psychic invasion and self-deception.
But at its best, there is potential for redemption and transcendental perception.

Favorable: Versatile, clever; makes their living in a number of ways. The leader: they can accomplish things when motivated and gain good wealth. they put great energy into things that interest them. They can transform their lives and benefit from spiritual work. Although serpent energy has its poisonous qualities, it also offers penetration, insight and concentration. The negative serpent energy needs to be won over and used for self-less and sattvic purposes, harnessing its instinctual wisdom, cunning, occult and esoteric knowing both for individual good and the good of humanity. When and if truly activated, this Nakshatra can bring mystical power, electrifying shakti and spiritual enlightenment.

Unfavorable: controlling and entwining. The hypnotizer. They disempower others. Snakes paralyze their enemy with their poisonous glance. Unscrupulous; dismissive attitude; impolite, tactless, unpopular, lacks social skills; doesn’t like rules; hoarding mentality; secretive; talkative; lack of gratitude; fragmented and ineffective; reck­less, disconnected, introspective, depressed, and isolated; lacks grace. They have a reputation for fierce court battles, and can be poisonous. They are notorious for using people, and also cutting people out of their lives. They can abuse their powerful energy for self-centred purposes: the snake seduces us to leave paradise, and yet they like to look supremely spiritual, if rather calculating and smarmy. Ashleshas have gained a certain reputation by hypnotising their oppo­nent, abusing their sexual attrac­tion, black magic and ‘snake-like’ intrigues.  They can be crooks and tricksters on the borderlands or outside decent society, playing mental games and dealing in glamours and illusions and sexual manipulations: calculating, cold-blooded and selfish, launching venom attacks and spreading poison. They are notorious for weaving webs, working in secret and creating elites and takeovers, even from a position of stagnation, laziness and indulgence. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Aslesha allows for inflicting with poison. Its heavenly basis emanates for approach of the serpent, which results in trembling and agitation, through which there is destruction of the victim. When we get tangled up in desire, it leads to madness because we do not have any detachment.

In part 1 of the course, you study each Nakshatra in turn, with special reference to the manifestation of that Nakshatras energy in your chart and mine, but also bringing in family, friends and celebrities. The aim of this chart focus is to promote caring and authentic discussion and analysis. There is full information about each of the Nakshatras’ qualities and characteristics, plus a reading list, and there’s a video for each Nakshatra for you to review.
Natal study of the Nakshatras: So, what you do is you analyse the implications for each of the planets in our two charts in the light of the Nakshatras they occupy. What does this mean for our personality, for our life, for our destiny? How will it affect our emotional natures and consciousness arising therefrom? What steps can we take to heal and empower?

In Part 2 of the course, you learn the full range of the interpretation techniques using the nakshatras, such as Navtara the derived Nakshatras table (the Tara system) and health astrology using the Nakshatras, Surya, Manasa and Nadi Nakshatras. Nakshatras for relationship compatibility. Predictive study of the Nakshatras: You also analyse the predictive implications of transits of planets through the Nakshatras and, using Nakshatra analysis, you also deepen your analysis of Vedic Astrology’s wonderful system of predictive periods and sub-periods: the Dashas and Bhuktis

Correspondence: You email me your work in respect of each Nakshatra within Part 1 and then each Technique within Part 2, and I then email you my response, which is always detailed, learned and very caring. You are always welcome to ask questions at any point.

In all cases, there will be opportunity if you wish for it for linking of the astrological perception, to approaches of healing and empowerment, and use of art and embodiment work, and for example: psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay, Inner Child Work and Family Constellation Work, where applicable. ​A wide range of separately charged skilled worldwide Healing Modalities is available if you would feel this to be individually beneficial for you.

This Nakshatras Course shares with my other two Vedic Astrology Courses, the opportunity to study some of Vedic Astrology’s deepest secrets.
It is a powerful tool for developing a profound view of your own astrological chart and it can help in realizing your true path and nature.
It is especially important for discovering your soul’s destiny and helping you to maximize your potential and heal and resolve problems and issues you have in this life; be they emotional, physical or mental.
In fact, my Vedic Astrology courses are exceptional in offering a combination of Astrology and optional Healing techniques that can bring about empowerment and profound and long lasting change to a person.

And they offer opportunity for Western Astrology crossover if you wish for that additional dimension.
