Cayce Past Life Report for
January 7, 1964
Harbor City, California
How To Use This Report
In the pages which follow, you will see
descriptions of your character traits, relationship potentials
and challenges, as well as career potentials, and even more.
All or most of these sometimes
intimate descriptions will be linked in some way with your
past lives and your experiences in the planetary realms
between lifetimes (the inter life).
Yet, you may ask, how can
this information best be used?
First, HELP YOURSELF.
The enclosed uplifting commentary can only be truly beneficial
if you see it as a means of self-help and self-transformation.
So to get the maximum practical benefit out of each page
of this report, focus on connecting what you read with what
is going on in your life now.
Next, LOOK FOR PATTERNS.
When you see repeated references -- for instance to similar
careers, pursuits or vocations -- you should consider these
references seriously. They demonstrate a positive karmic
connection which you now have with these same career-related
potentials from past life endeavors. So, because of prior
life success, these areas of expression should be easier
for you to find rewarding or to succeed in, as compared
with in other areas.
Also, pay close attention
to REMEDIAL MEASURES. For instance, you may be given an
affirmation to use in meditation (or a prayer). Or you may
be given a crystal/gemstone to wear. These means of balancing
out challenging vibrations can indeed be very helpful, especially
if used in a hopeful manner.
Finally, this report is a
synthesis of past life and planetary interlife interpretations
originally given clairvoyantly by Edgar Cayce, for individuals
with your same planetary patterns at birth. So in applying
this report to your personal life, you should RESPECT INNER
GUIDANCE --through dreams, meditation and past life regression
for example -- as primary resources for this kind of information;
and most important, RESPECT YOUR FREE WILL! You alone must
choose and know what is really best for you.
Your birth chart interpretation is based on the
positions of the planets at the time of your birth.
Astrologer Ry Redd calculated
on computer the astrology charts for hundreds of people
who received readings by Edgar Cayce which contained astrologically
based information. By studying these astrology charts, Ry
Redd determined what planetary influences were most likely
responsible for the readings by Edgar Cayce. In many cases
the astrological basis of the Cayce readings appears to
be very straightforward. From this information Ry Redd was
able to develop, in conjunction with the computer programmers
at Cosmic Patterns Software, an analysis of your birth chart
as Ry Redd believes that Edgar Cayce's psychic readings
would have interpreted it. Ry Redd's research effort was
exhaustive and was conducted over many years, some of which
was spent at the Edgar Cayce library at the Association
for Research and Enlightenment headquarters in Virginia

Your Past Life Report begins
on the following page . . .
Your Sun harmoniously aspects Neptune.
Your mystical, intuitive
and spiritual sensitivity arises from your past lives, perhaps
in early Roman times, or in the Egyptian/late Atlantean
period. Then you may have been a seer with expertise in
the religious mysteries of the day and in healing through
the laying of hands. Your likely interest in group meditation,
symbology, holistic health, and astrological timing arises
from such past life experiences.
From your afterlife experience
in the Neptune dimension, your imaginative urges create
strong mystical impressions within you. At times, when you
meditate or simply rest, the actions expressed in your visions
and daydreams may elicit such intense emotions that you
may feel as if you had actually experienced them.
Since Neptune is a higher
octave of Venus, ruler of the arts, your Neptunian attunement
and sensitivity give you abilities related to the arts in
virtually any direction, whether as an actor, a dancer,
an artist, musician or art critic.
Although you would do well
in any creative endeavor, you are also gifted with healing
power, especially in applying, for example, music and color
to emotional disturbances. Hence, combining analytical or
depth psychology with your creative and mystical sensitivities
may suggest fields that will bring you deep understanding,
if judged from the spiritual side.
You may also achieve a great
deal through service for others, caring for others, helping
those less fortunate. To be a channel of blessings to others
is the purpose of every soul coming into the material world.
For you particularly, serving others may have special rewards.
If it is in keeping with your ideals, you would gain much
in service involving an organized charitable institution
or missionary branch of a church denomination. Public leadership
involving large organizations through speaking to groups
and writing is also indicated.
In addition, things that
come over water or upon water are likely to be significant
in your experience. Travel and law, especially in connection
with these, should also be a portion of your activities.
[997-1, 2835-1, 2483-2, 2855-1, 1442-1, 2326-1, 315-4]
Your Sun is in an
inharmonious pattern with Jupiter.
Your after life experience
in the realm of Jupiter brings you a helpfulness in getting
along with those in powerful, prominent positions, especially
in helping them to develop brotherly love in their actions.
You have great abilities in your associations with such
individuals in these ennobling directions. As long as you
avoid tendencies toward false pride and taking any selfish
advantage of your influential role, you should continue
to bring harmony into the lives of others whom you contact.
You also have the capacity
from Jupiter's experience of keeping balance and remaining
tolerant while going through various turmoil's about you.
These challenges are most likely to have taken the form
of antagonisms on a larger scale dealing with groups, organizations
and institutions as well as individuals around you. These
experiences have probably not been without anxiety for you
nor has your judgment always been without exaggeration.
However, your patience and capacity to forgive are the basis
for your endurance of such animosity and unpredictable behavior
on the part of others.
Your mental trends and self-expression
will be in very definite, ambitious directions this lifetime.
One result of your drive to make yourself felt is that you
will be heard of from both far and near as a powerful soul
with considerable broadness of vision. This drive can be
a constructive expansion beneficial to others -- while contributing
to your soul development -- or, it can be merely an expansion
of your desire to gratify your own motives (the latter will
most often take the form of extravagance and questionable
judgment in finances).
As to which of these will
prevail, the answer lies in what you do in applying your
free will and your abilities to know what you have set as
your ideal. Resources for ideals include reading English
literature and history, along with inspiration from music.
As remedial measures for this somewhat challenging pattern,
the wearing of planetary gemstones about the body can be
a helpful vibratory influence. Specifically recommended
is either the turquoise blue or pigeon-blood ruby. [1143-2]
Your Sun is conjoined
From former lives when you
were involved in oral and written communication as a teacher
and scribe, you are a very high- minded individual with
a strong desire for information and knowledge. You have
considerable creative ability, especially to write -- or
even act in -- a good dramatic mystery or a suspenseful
screenplay. You have a marked capacity to describe characters
and situations in an unusual way. DO write. In addition,
you have special capacities to teach others through your
abilities as a writer.
For instance, you have marked
abilities involving attention to detail, literature, educational
factors and especially historical subjects. You could therefore
write a good historical novel or help produce a documentary/docudrama
which would be a source of inspiration to many.
In fact, you may have a great
deal of interest in communications, the media and literature,
especially that of an unusual or intuitive nature. Were
you to apply yourself, you would make an excellent historian
or journalist. With spiritual direction if you chose to
do so, you would also make an excellent speaker, particularly
on spiritual subjects.
You are also gifted in languages
and especially in relationship to teaching not only English
but also a foreign language. You would be rewarded through
any teaching or ministry involving history, color and natural
music, such as the songs of birds, the sounds of whales
and the sea.
Mentally, you tend to seek
objective results, even in more personal value-laden areas
like religion and spiritual philosophy. Your mind is practical,
worldly, self-confident and independent, with a marked tendency
to categorize and analyze.
Your previous Mercurian lifetime
prepared you well for the exercise of authority, yet inclines
you to be somewhat dictatorial at times in how you communicate
with others. That is, you have high mental abilities but
with a tendency occasionally to be rather hardheaded and
to want to have your own way. Apply your will toward the
ideals of humility and flexibility. Also, try not to take
yourself so seriously.
In sum, you are very high-minded,
mentally well balanced, with an intellect which is healthy,
optimistic and vigorous. You are capable of making for yourself
a career in such fields as finance, politics or religion,
especially teaching and the ministry. [137-4, 560-1, 759-1,
308-3, 1230-1, 1671-2, 3020-1, 1742-2, 369-3]
Your Moon harmoniously
From our past lives the Moon
mirrors our karma back to us for our growth in the present
life. One way this works is through the aspect formed at
birth between the Moon and other planets, such as Saturn.
Your favorable aspect pattern between the Moon and Saturn
reflects for your use this lifetime resources from the "plus"
side of your akashic ledger. That is, you are again presenting
to yourself positive karma from past earth lives.
For instance, in a prior
incarnation -- perhaps your previous one -- you were probably
responsible for a public-oriented institution or organization
involved with education in some way. In the present you
have a very strong sense of duty, excellent organizational
skills, a good nurturing capacity, extraordinary teaching
abilities and can well handle responsibilities working with
any organization that does business or deals with the public.
Bear in mind that earth incarnations
are principally emotional experiences. The fortunate timing
with which you chose to reenter the earth plane carried
into your new life a basic harmony between your feelings
and emotions on one hand and your practicality and common
sense on the other.
Introversion, however, is
likely; yet you are quite able to use your introverted urge
in a constructive, practical manner as a distinct opportunity
for soul development. For instance, you can use your "loner"
tendency to maintain your self-confidence, spiritual attunement
and consistency concerning the ideals and higher personal
goals you have set for yourself this lifetime. [633-2, 759-1]
Your Moon is in an
inharmonious pattern with Mars.
You are strongly inclined
to seek an independent career, to strike your own course
in life. Your father is likely to be Martian in character
or occupation, and to have an unfortunate history, which
makes your family background less than ideal. Also, your
health may not be as robust as it should be. Outdoor exercise,
attention to nutrition, especially your iron and fiber intake,
and stress management would do much to strengthen your physical
Having experienced the wrathful
Mars dimension between earth lives, antagonism is likely
between your passionate, animal side and your emotional-feeling
life. Your emotions at times may get out of control, causing
a number of challenges. For instance, you may manifest at
times an obstinate, intolerant, "me first" attitude.
If you are unwilling to be dominated, you are likely to
attract from past lives karma to meet through an aggressive
In your previous life, you
may have been an early American settler. During that incarnation,
you may well have had some frightening and painful experiences
which are brought back to you in this life in the form of
the emotional challenges just described. Moreover, you may
often be presented with opportunities to deal constructively
with separations and quarrels involving souls linked to
you from previous incarnations where conflicts were frequent
These challenges will be
intensified if your manner is too Martian and dominating.
If these argumentative, wrathful energies you experienced
during your previous incarnation and afterlife soul journey
in the Mars dimension are not moderated by application of
your will, you will probably face many challenges with your
friendships, family and personal relationships. Your great
need here is to set before your inner self such ideals as
self-restraint, patience and love.
Do bear in mind that these
influences are the RESULT of what you have done ABOUT your
past. They are NEVER beyond the reach of your free will
choice. For instance, you can choose to avoid acting in
your own self-interest. Instead, put your attention toward
the purpose of bringing good into the lives of others. Otherwise,
you will bring suffering to yourself through an inner war
between self-centered fears and passions on one hand and
your spiritual development on the other.
That is, trials and temptations
resulting from indulging your desires may often conflict
with and block progress toward developing your innate spirituality.
As an aid in working with
these challenges, here is an affirmation which you might
repeat in meditation (though perhaps phrased in your own
words): "I will be shown how to come to grips with
my strong feelings and emotional strain. I will learn to
be more tactful so that I do not initiate a confrontation
or take offense too easily when faced with a trying situation.
I will instead develop a constructive, selfless attitude
toward others, so that I can be of greater service to God."
Your Mercury harmoniously
Your sojourn in Mercury gives
you a very high mental capacity -- near that of genius --
with reference to absorbing, remembering and communicating
details, especially in writing and talking with others.
Your Uranian experience together with a parallel lifetime
in Atlantis makes you a highly sensitive soul. This is expressed
in your psychic abilities as well as your originality and
Ideas are rampant in your
mind, making you a continuous theorist and ideologist. This
is especially true in esoteric, astrological and psychic
matters in their deeper and broader sense, rather than on
the more superficial level of psi phenomena. Yet you receive
the greater proportion of your mental urges and inventiveness
from your own clairvoyance. Together with the extremes which
are likely to be to you the everyday norm, these psychic
impressions may be confusing. Hence the need for centering
on the promises of the Master -- Himself the ultimate Uranian
in Whom all extremes meet -- especially as He gave in John
In writing and counseling
-- complemented by lecturing -- you may accomplish the most
in the present experience. Your appreciation of wisdom and
the mental abilities of others, together with your desire
to give expression to these make you a natural teacher.
Other more Atlantean areas may also be suitable outlets
for your rather remarkable intellectual abilities. On one
hand you would probably find rewarding the study and application
of harmonic, vibratory -- including electrical, gravitational,
radiational -- and cyclical conditions to generational-growth
cycles in nature, especially plants. On the other hand you
have potentials for pioneering in the study and research
of planetary and other cycles in relation to economics.
[2658-1, 2498-1, 2598-2]
Your Mercury forms
a square pattern with Jupiter.
Your experience in Jupiter
gives you a bigness or broadness of experience and an easy
going manner. Through will's application, once generosity
toward yourself is developed, then extended to others, you
will be able to be helpful, mindful, considerate, understanding,
and an aid to many. These humanitarian potentials are available
to be tapped once you know within yourself that there is
and can be an ideal that is also a reasonable thing. One
tendency to be careful of in this direction is an inability
to be realistic about ideals, for instance you might watch
agreeing to take on projects which you may not be in a position
to follow through on later.
You have innate high and
noble purposes, yet are at times misunderstood. However,
with application of will you may manifest love in many ways,
for instance, through aiding others to find social and legal
justice and in writing. You could also become a successful
financial counselor or find success in sales management.
Another way to direct your high mental abilities toward
moral applications of your experience is through writing
devotional stories, poetry and even music that glorifies
the inner life of worship and spiritual ideals.
Of course, occasionally it
is fine, even invigorating, to argue about God and metaphysical
or spiritual subjects, yet the home is not the place for
it. The home, though, is the best place to try out spirituality:
whatever you may not be able to apply yourself surely should
not be preached to others. In fact, you would probably make
a very good minister. You may rise very high in your abilities
in whatever activity you finally choose.
This inharmonious pattern
makes for a tendency toward a stubbornness of judgment and
impulsive decision making. Yet you have the mental abilities
to reason from any viewpoint. Any condition you face must
have a reasonableness to you for it to be of worth or of
use to you or --for that matter -- to anyone else. This
may often be your rationale for putting things off. In other
words, things out of reason are for you things out of season.
While not mercenary you are not wholly an idealist either.
Instead, you are rather well balanced between the two.
In using your mental abilities
there are inclinations toward theological argumentation
rather than sharing ideals of spirituality. This is not
to say that you are not spiritual-minded, but your spiritual
attitudes as outwardly expressed are somewhat intellectual
and often primarily for show. You may feel that there has
to be a point made in discussions about religion and thus
the theological or intellectual-Mercurian influence itself
is primary at such times, rather than the spirituality that
you might practice.
In your meditation periods,
you might use an affirmation or prayer worded something
like, "While I am attracted to many different bits
of miscellaneous information because they appear to be interesting,
I will begin to see more and more that not everything which
I want to occupy my mind with has practical value. I will
develop the ability to concentrate only upon relevant, useful
facts and will be protected from spending a lot of time
and energy with non-essentials by barking up the wrong tree
or totally overlooking the obvious. I will find myself moving
on to more important matters quickly, so that I will accomplish
something truly worthy of my attention." [3155-1, 1001-7,
3674-1, 960-4, 114-1, 1738-1]
Your Venus is conjoined
Saturn brings many changes,
some of them traumatic ones at times. At other times, Saturn
brings steps toward greater responsibility and maturity.
As to which of these alternative courses prevails, it depends
on how you may have failed to apply your will in the past
as well as how constructively you apply your free will in
the present. For instance, friendships may often be stronger
ties for you than business or family relationships, yet
you probably have lost them when you didn't want to and
couldn't get rid of some when you wanted to!
While you are reserved for
the most part in your outward expression of feelings, you
are still very emotional in nature, with a tendency to seek
satisfaction of your Venusian love urges in a calculating,
self-gratifying sort of way. You are also very determined,
with the ability physically and mentally to carry forward
to completion almost any undertaking. You will consistently
find -- as you have experienced more than once --that to
have a habit of being more optimistic than the occasion
seems to warrant will help you a great deal in making life
more worth living, more enjoyable and worthwhile.
Your influence among other
people has counted for them far more than you have ever
given yourself credit for. Your love of the home and family
life may have been misinterpreted and misunderstood by some
of these same individuals. You may pray at times that you
no longer feel so restricted by your obligations in these
relationships, or at least that you can more cheerfully
accept these responsibilities as spiritual blessings to
strengthen your patience. Such experiences and duties have
probably left you feeling as though you are not appreciated
or loved. You also may be attracting people to you from
past lives who cause you to suffer due to their selfishness.
This in turn is likely to have inhibited your emotionally,
making you very cautious about expressing your affections.
You may quite successfully
redirect your creative energies in the direction of your
career, becoming highly skilled in sales, management, executive
secretarial positions, or in commercial art and advertising.
The business world would be a good outlet for your parsimonious,
responsible efficiency in money matters (traditionally Saturn
contracts finances as well as love, money and affection,
all of which are ruled by Venus).
Another type of work which
would well channel your caring and organizing abilities
is that of supervising healing/nurturing related endeavors
such as practical nursing, home health care, natural preventive
medicine and involvement with exercise centers or spas.
[904-1, 2329-1, 1522-1]
Your Venus is in an
inharmonious pattern with Neptune.
At the time of your re-entry
into the earth plane your soul flight paths from Venus and
Neptune were squared off or opposed in the zodiac. Your
choice to be born when these two planet- flight paths were
at odds with each other resulted in a call-up from your
soul's past life records which reveal a love liability in
your cosmic account.
This same challenging choice
of re-entry from Venus, realm of love and beauty, and Neptune,
realm of spirituality and mysticism, is made by many sincere
seekers who are earnest students on the spiritual path.
It points out this lifetime as an especially important one,
for you are directly faced, among other things, with the
necessity to spiritualize the disappointments you have experienced
through your great need for love.
That is, your deep desire
for affection -- and resulting heartaches from feeling the
lack of it -- all must be given up and instead has to be
universalized into BEING, manifesting Love and Compassion.
This is not to say that you
should be impractical in being too empathetic and allow
yourself to be deceived (or to deceive or delude yourself),
for instance, by giving too much to the wrong --especially
spiritual or moral -- cause or marrying the wrong person
whom you have emotionally over-idealized. Let your prayer
or song be, "Lord, let me learn to BE the love I've
been dreaming of, learn to BE the love I need."
The other area of your unclear
vision and lack of good judgment at times might manifest
in a kind of "mystical moodiness" as far as inner
guidance is concerned (this applies particularly to dreams
and meditation experiences). That is, you may be moved by
an impulse thought to be from without -- from higher, spiritual
sources -- when it is really within your own head. Or, conversely,
you may often be prompted to act or fail to act on what
you think is only a feeling from within when it is really
There are indicators that
an excellent outlet for you would be in counseling others
who are emotionally or spiritually needy, either directly
(one-on-one or by leading small groups) or through writing,
or both. The main requirement is for you to CHOOSE. First,
through analyzing yourself in such a way as to know what
is your ideal relationship to God. Second, what is your
ideal attitude and corresponding life work activity that
can fulfill that purpose, that ideal.
Finally, what is the ideal
yet practical manner of expressing these purposes in relationship
to those you deal with on a day-to-day basis. Then, whether
it be in fact or fiction, in a private journal or widely
read book or column, WRITE about what you have come up with!
There are many, many souls who would benefit, as long as
you really have something constructive and helpful to say
as part of a specific purpose and lesson to be learned.
Your Saturn is in
an inharmonious pattern with Neptune.
You chose a time of the year
to be born when Saturn, the planet of heavy changes and
Neptune, the planet of spirituality, were in a challenging
aspect pattern. This presents you with opportunities to
change and grow spiritually through facing distinct CHOICES
to make in applying your will. The influences of these two
planetary experiences are very different. As a result you
may frequently manifest contradictory characteristics. For
instance, you may have to choose between being an other-worldly
mystical recluse who lacks ambition and avoids serious responsibilities
or being a very responsible, hard worker who takes on many
sacrifices for a higher ideal of service.
Even the latter, service-centered
route can present extra difficulties if escapism or delusion
is involved in any way (like psychic or mediumistic-type
"channeling", drugs and alcohol). Together with
your at times rather strong self will, obsessive influences
through such activities could manifest by your entertaining
impractical if not fantastic schemes and self-deluded mystical
In fact, your experience
in the Saturn and Neptune interlife dimensions should be
measured alongside what you may experience in the practical
things of life. This should take precedence, or at least
be in balance with, influences which are more of the visionary
nature, like accrediting influences to numbers or even to
astrological factors. Most important here is the controlling
influence of your free will. Indeed, your will is supreme
over all such influences.
Another way this central
choice of your life path may manifest is through a conflict
between following a conservative, materialistic ego-emotional
structure and spiritually letting go and truly trusting
the "still small voice" within. In your effort
to balance these opposing urges, from Saturn's influence
especially you may frequently find yourself starting new
projects and following new lines of thought. As you mature
around middle age, these urges for change will probably
become more frequent unless you are firmly rooted in a stable
Your experiences in the Saturn
dimension and the realm of Neptune between lives may have
deeply rooted into your unconscious mind strong fears and
feelings of loneliness, isolation and rejection. While you
may often be only dimly conscious of these insecure feelings,
they still may have a very draining and disintegrating effect
on your personality. These are probably emotional urges
from previous incarnations in which you were unable to relate
to people in the outer, "real" world, perhaps
in a monastic life devoted to the spiritual path. These
urges are now opportunities for you to correct this past
imbalance by willfully reaching out and projecting love,
understanding and empathy toward others.
Associations from these same
past lives will probably be coming out of the woodwork from
time to time to present opportunities for you to deal successfully
with deception, suspicion and related challenges. These
karmic links are likely to involve you in a behind-the-scenes
controversy, treachery or scandal which may block the realization
of your ambitions and place impossible demands on you. Let
your prayer or affirmation be for reliable guidance and
power of will, so that you can know your soul's purpose.
You can then apply your will successfully to make a genuine,
inspired contribution this lifetime. [439-1, 4714-1]
Zodiac signs of the Sun and Moon are analyzed below. First
they will be analyzed in the Tropical zodiac. If the positions
are different in the Sidereal zodiac, then they will also
be analyzed in the Sidereal zodiac. Also, if the Sun and
Moon are in the same zodiac sign, then only the Sun position
is interpreted; the Moon position, being the same as the
Sun position, does not need to be interpreted in this case.
Your Sun is in Capricorn (Tropical zodiac).
Capricorn's influence inclines
you to be one who is both a materialist AND one interested
in spiritual things.For instance, you were probably once
among the natives of North America, who long before the
white man set foot upon this shore, had developed an extraordinarily
rich and meaningful culture. In fact, many things associated
with the American Indians are likely to be innate talents
or otherwise special to you.
From one or more lifetimes
as a native American, you developed a knack for being able
to handle powerful changes in your life situation. You also
have an appreciation of the balance and organized interplay
of Mother Nature and her creatures, as well this natural
ability to move with the flow of life around you.
While you have a strong sense
of independence and personal identity, you also well understand
the necessity for people to live and work together as social
beings. Therefore you acknowledge and accept the need for
group organization, responsibility and structured communications.
Order, responsibility and
structure, along with a capacity to cope and grow with heavy
changes in life, are also key influences of Saturn, the
planet which rules or best symbolizes the sign of Capricorn.
Now, because of your independent,
down-to-earth attitude, carried over in part from past lives
when your personal sense of identity was intense, you may
often experience a kind of power struggle with your partner.
This attitude probably occurred often in times of military
involvement with the ideals of victory with honor, such
as during the Greek wars between ancient Sparta and Athens.
Your Moon is in Libra
You may remember, in your
deeper meditations and dreams, experiences from long ago
when you were among great artists, sculptors, poets, and
craftsmen of ancient India as well as the more recent leaders
of prosperous, classical Greece. Even later day Venice,
Florence and other Italian cities developed some of this
love of culture, beauty and appreciation of art which you
were closely involved with then and which you find rewarding
Venus is the planet of love,
beauty and art, so it is very appropriate to convey the
symbolic essence of the sign Libra, which it rules. Venus'
influence through Libra also makes that which is crass and
primitive quite unnatural for you to accept gracefully,
or to participate in willingly.
You may also have been among
many who reincarnated in the American South just before
the Civil War. In the present you may have to learn the
lesson of providing for your own needs, luxury and comfort
rather than having others do provide these things for you.
In fact, one of the challenges of Libra lies in being too
liberal or indulgent with oneself. With prayerful application
of your will, this too can be overcome. [303-31]
Your Sun is in Sagittarius
Great expanses of space,
including the seemingly endless expanse of oceans, are likely
to call to you, and in them you probably find some of your
most quieting and comforting experiences. In your past lives,
then, under circumstances when great expanses and very broad
spaces brought you the most insightful and contemplative
experiences of your mental being, it was then that spiritually
you probably gained the most.
For example, traveling long
ago as a Spanish, English or even Japanese settler, pioneer
or explorer, you may have crossed the oceans in search of
a better world. You were then part of a strong sea-faring
culture which frequently set out --over a period of many
centuries -- to explore, invade and often defeat enemies
and cultures usually much greater in strength and size.
Jupiter is the planet which
rules or symbolizes the heart of Sagittarian energies, supplying
you with a broadly courageous -- though at times daredevil
-- quality. Yet underneath this often exciting exterior
lies a calm but calculating mind. Another characteristic
experience is one or more past lives involving a lot of
movement, change and separation from your family and your
cultural roots.In your deeper meditations you might recall
urges and impressions of migrating at the time of the Deluge
of Atlantis (commonly called the Great Flood), to other,
safer lands to begin a new life and a new age of history.
Your more intimate, personal
relationships often may not be as harmonious as you would
really like for them to be. This challenge is rooted in
past lives when, as in the present, you were somewhat inclined
to prefer partnerships capable of enduring considerably
different interests through a great deal of diverse activity.
Your Past Life Decanates
According to an ancient Vedic
astrology method still practiced in India, Past Life Planets
are realms in which you sojourned between earth lifetimes.
They are identified through the position of your sidereal
Sun and Moon in the decanates (a decanate is a one-third
division of a zodiac sign; each is ruled by a planet). Any
patterns involving these Past Life Planets are therefore
of special importance. Pay extra attention, then, to any
sections of your Report which interpret these planets.
your Sun and Moon are both located in a decanate which is
ruled by the same planet, then only the Sun position is
interpreted; the Moon's decanate position, being the same
as the Sun's, therefore does not need to be interpreted.
Your Sun is in Leo
Your sidereal Sun is in the
decanate of LEO, which is ruled by the Sun. The Sun as Past
Life Planet indicates a high level of soul development and
power with great potential for spiritual service and leadership
in the present.
As the Sun sojourn between
lives is the highest interlife experience possible in this
system, you may have voluntarily chosen to reincarnate to
help and uplift others. Therefore one or more prior lifetimes
of leadership in religious or state affairs, or both, in
ancient Egypt, Persia, modern Europe, or elsewhere in Asia,
Your Moon is in Libra
Your sidereal Moon is in
LIBRA decanate, which is ruled by Venus. Venus as Past Life
Planet points to high priorities in creativity, sociability
and relationships, especially in your family/home life and
in the world of nature. Urges toward these experiences and
interests from your sojourn in the Venus dimension are likely
to originate in parallel lifetimes of soul development through
these areas of self-expression.
Especially indicated are
lives in the early Jewish-Christian Church and later as
an artist-musician in modern times, whether in the West
(Europe and/or America), or in modern or colonial Asia.
