Michael, Thank you so kindly for your work and best efforts to convey all the information. You are truly wonderful and your efforts are much appreciated and I am grateful.

''Michael puts his heart and soul into all that he does, he is my distance teacher in Astrology and I have yet to meet him face-to-face, yet I feel his care and support so strongly through his distance learning course, much more powerfully than some face-to-face teachers I have had. He never ceases to amaze me, how he seems to have an endless flow of knowledge, insights, care and time that can be felt so powerfully through the ether, I have no doubt that if you take the time and travel to receive one of his readings or courses you will be spending it with a genuine person, a genuine knowledgeable and incredibly experienced astrologer and a very considerate man, who is literally worth his weight in gold.'

Enlightened Astrology Course
This is a very special course. I teach with great enthusiasm and am totally caring. And I have over twenty years experience of teaching astrology.
Exceptionally I am able to provide depth crossover into your Vedic astrology if that's what you want.
I have five university degrees. I myself benefited from the ancient Oxford university tutorial system in the late 1960s and so I can pass on to you that depth, caring totally individual teaching approach.
From 1998, I worked in a five year social anthropological field study of spiritual forms new to the modern West, studying individuals, institutions and communities, so I have great knowledge of spiritual pathways and their issues, and this too I can share with you.
I run a Healing Centre in Foxford in County Mayo in the West of Ireland with linked airbnb. I run the centre together with my partner Healer; Maggie Pashley who is skilled in a vast range of healing modalities.
Working with me, you are guaranteed deeply learned and intelligent support to your astrology studies.
The course approach is quite simple and clear: you study each planet with reference to two charts: yours and mine, thus the learning is guaranteed to be authentic, testable and grounded.
In between each planetary study, you work through detailed and fascinating study of the techniques of psychodynamic and Evolutionary astrology.
You receive all the charts and course information you could ever need!

Time of birth: If you don’t know your ‘time of birth’, make every effort to find it, but please contact me never-the-less and we can accommodate this using muscle-testing (kinesiology). And we rectify as the course progresses.

I do feel certain, myself, that both Vedic and Western astrology are needed for the fullest accuracy and perception.
Vedic astrology using the sidereal zodiac (anchored to the 'fixed' stars) is orientated to statement of incarnational life purpose: the circumstances we attract at birth to create the destiny our soul chose for this incarnation, and the unfoldment circumstances.
Western astrology (derived from the position of the Sun at the Vernal Equinox) is orientated to our egoic psychological experience, and crucially, western astrology includes in a valid way our experience of the Outer Planets.
I cannot stress the latter enough. For example, when my current Uranus transit conjunct natal Moon and opposition Sun transit happened, my life was indeed subject to Revolution.
I have given readings for years that combine both.
I have many students who, while their course will primarily be in one of Vedic or Western astrology, do learn to cross-refer.
I think part of the reason they succeed in this task is that I do aim to be very caring and supportive.
I give very individual depth attention.
The Enlightened Astrology Course is genuinely caring and genuinely expert. It is spiritual, psychologically grounded and visionary, and it is rooted in enlightened awareness of the phenomena of both your birth chart and your own personal and unique predictive unfoldment. This course encompasses evolutionary astrology and it anchors into your incarnational life purpose and the evolutionary path of your soul.
My approach as Your Teacher:
The astrological teaching and perception offered will be expert and caring. The great perception offered will be thoroughly grounded and authentic. This is because all principles being taught will be applied to the charts of actual people: myself and members.
I have worked as an astrologer for twenty two years and I have attended a number of western and Vedic Astrology Courses myself. I have completed a university-based five-year Ethnography: a social anthropological field study of spiritual forms new to the modern west comprising Hinduism, Buddhism, paganism, shamanism and Utopian Community. I have five university degrees, including from Oxford University, and I am dedicated to the best in caring teaching methods like the Oxford University Tutorial system that I myself benefited from in the late 1960s. I have teaching and counselling qualifications.
My Very Special Teaching Methods:
I avoid legalistic or formulaic teaching because all the perceptions generated by the western or Vedic Astrology will have pointers to healing methods and because teaching methods will include art work, embodiment work, vision work and empowerment dimensions as well as the top quality astrological perception. Myth is a wonderful and crucial guideline to understanding. We use psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay, Inner Child Work, Family Constellation Work. There is a vibrant Face Book where you can share your questions, insights and interests with each other. These Courses are to a high level of awareness that you can incorporate into your life. The Courses are certificated subject to satisfactory standard of completion.
How does the course work?
The course embodies four strands:
A. The first strand is applied astrology: you study the planets one by one, first in your chart and then in my chart.
B. You alternate this applied study with study of the documents I send you stating principles of psychodynamic western astrology and you complete exercises arising from these.
C. In all cases there will be a linking of the astrological perception gained from the course to approaches of healing and empowerment; use of art and embodiment work, and for example: psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay, Inner Child Work and Family Constellation Work, where applicable. At additional cost, a very wide range of skilled worldwide Healing Modalities is additionally available if you would feel this to be individually beneficial.
