Ry Redd's Cayce Past Life Report for
August 19, 1946
151 1st Ave. #109

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 interlife).
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 Beach, Virginia.

Your Past Life Report begins on the following page . . .
Your Sun is sextile Jupiter.
From Jupiter you have a broad expanse of experience to call upon which give you abilities to be generous (once you have developed generosity to yourself). As a result, you are helpful, mindful and considerate of others, while being understanding and an aid to many in a wide variety of situations. You are well balanced between idealism and rationalism. That is, an ideal must be reasonable in order for you to embrace it.
As a counselor, you should be successful in helping others express themselves in whatever situation they are in. While you will do well in any field you choose -- once you find yourself and your guiding ideal in life -- another area of fulfillment for you lies in writing devotional compositions, as aids to meditation and inner worship.
It is likely that your ease of higher self-expression on such a broad scale is rooted in a past life wherein you were one of "Jupiter's Children." Famous, even quite powerful, your soul history could well range from being a member of royalty to a moralist, whether priest or priestess.
Therefore, your visionary abilities are as broad as they are extraordinary. You should be somewhat active in the business world although your efforts will not be routine or rote, nor will they usually conform to the rules. Yet you are precise and expect very definite results from individuals, groups and relations.
From your likely experience in the dimension of Jupiter between earth incarnations, there is a flexible expansion of intellectual or mental and financial, material conditions. That is, you are able to adjust yourself to and attract to yourself commercial associations involving large business deals centered on considerable sums of money.
You are also able to adjust to professional concerns of vital importance to organizations and individuals. In these associations, you are quite competent in being very definite, active and accurate. (You also are better able than most anyone to be discrete and to keep a secret.) This has also helped to focus your ability to use your resources wisely, especially in ways which best further your ideals.
Your religious philosophy, counseling/healing and other humanitarian service abilities are rooted in past lives where you reached your present efficiency and nobility of purpose as a result of MERIT (not chance, not destiny). Do keep in mind that with greater spiritual possibilities come greater obligations. There is more required of you than you are probably aware, just as you are likely to be more advanced in soul evolution than you think. Keep your body, mind and soul pure, letting no question arise within as to whether you are doing the best you know how to do. God requires nothing more, and nothing less. [338-2, 500-1]
Your Moon forms a square pattern with Sun.
You chose a birthtime when the Greater and Lesser Lights, the Sun and Moon, were adversely aspecting each other. Now, the Moon directly mirrors your past life emotions, while the Sun is the medium through which your soul force shines outwardly as a unique personality in the present. At your birth these two all-important Luminaries were squared off with one another in the zodiac. This set before you challenges to meet from your past lives. And your material or physical experiences emotionally may become the greater urges at times. Yet the innate and deeper urge, from your past life experience with what you have set as your guiding ideal become more impelling in your quieter moments (in meditation and just being still).
Most of the obstacles you face center on a basic conflict between your will, personality and emotions, which is linked with your parents, with whom you have karma to work out from previous lives. (If you are male, this karmic link will be more with your mother; if female, more with your father.)
There are two major ways this challenge is likely to manifest. First, you may tend to blame your parents rather than yourself for emotional difficulties which prevent you from following the life you want. You may have been separated from one or both of your parents when you were young. In this instance you may find yourself always seeking fresh experiences, but without the stamina or stability to follow through successfully. This is a classic case of being your own worst enemy, and requires an extra exertion of will power to observe yourself closely.
See to it that your actions truly live up to your personal ideals and spiritual goals. Doing this prayerfully, all else will gradually fall into place. "When I examine my attitudes, Lord, I sometimes find that they are not in harmony with my actions. Teach me how I may better coordinate these two sides of my nature, how I may align my inner feelings with my outer approach to life. Do not let either my heart or my head govern my behavior, Lord. May they both work together cooperatively, forming a personality that is at peace with itself and with others." [3188-1]
Your Mercury is conjoined with Saturn.
You have considerable depth of mind yet have the exceptionally challenging experience -- from your Saturn indwelling -- of continual changes in life. One day every indicator of success will be present regarding a given relationship or endeavor and the next day it will appear to dissolve. This is probably karmically rooted in your finding many individuals in whom you have placed your faith or confidence to have shaken that faith by letting you down.
With application of your will, you can turn this into a distinct opportunity which can prove very beneficial for not only your soul development but also your overall material success. Because you are so ambitious, your characteristic inclinations toward hard work and persistence should guarantee this for you. [195-14, 2328-1]
Your Mercury harmoniously aspects Mars.
Between death and rebirth you have experienced constructive planetary-loka sojourns in Mercury and Mars that may be a helpful influence in your present life. This makes for an inquiring mind, one delving into the thoughts and feelings of others and their experiences, especially as to their mental reactions. Your mental inquisitiveness manifests on many levels of action. For instance, you can draw conclusions from the experiences of others as well as how they compare with your own experience.
From your Mars afterlife experience there is a benevolent influence in your life so that often in the disputes of others, in the wrath and anger they express toward each other, there may come from your own mental attitude peacemaking experiences even in the material business world of competition that are beneficent. Knowing how hard it is to be a peacemaker at all, much less where money and cutthroat competition are concerned, perhaps you can more fully appreciate your talents in this area. Therefore as a peacemaker under the most trying of conditions and beyond being merely inquisitive, you are a soul who is adept at -- as colloquially expressed -- "getting inside people's heads".
You have experienced the planetary consciousnesses in which you may manifest -- in your dealings, analyzing and studies of individuals and groups -- the highest purposes in the experiences of others. You are, then, one with a high ennobling, uplifted and stimulating intellectual energy. In addition, you are one given to be openly active in helping others to help themselves. Teaching and career counseling, as well as writing and computer science, are recommended as potentially rewarding pursuits. [2910-1]
Your Mercury harmoniously aspects Neptune.
There is likely to be a close synchronization of innate mental urges from your afterlife experiences in the heavenly realms of Neptune and Mercury, with emotional promptings from past lives as the musician and mystic. The result is as fortunate as it is intense: you are so especially gifted in these directions as to have true potentials for creative, inspirational genius. You have very special gifts in the form of abilities in devotional, inspirational music and poetry on one hand and on the other, spiritual channeling through your dreams and visions. While training often diminishes such natural gifts, your attunement to music and color is so fine that with training, you can reach the level of a supersensitive in the inner, mystic forces.
Water, the material emblem of the spirit, is Neptune's element. You should live near water, whether it be a river, lake or ocean. This will increase the influence of mystical activities and spiritual channeling, for instance through dreams and meditation, which are your natural abilities. You also have urges toward mysterious things such as collecting unusual items that to you may have protective powers, or serve as good luck charms. These should not be considered taboo. Just be sure to spiritualize them rather than visualize material or financial results coming from them.
You love mystery, though with a tendency toward idealizing people and situations. However, your experience of hero worship may not only be in the ordinary sense, but also as decided likes and dislikes linked with characters in film and literature, for instance.
These blessed potentials make it all the more necessary for you always to keep spiritual purposes before you. Not just being honest so that others will speak well of you, but being CLEAN in your thoughts and actions. Nor should such a purity of purpose be pursued for a reward in heaven or earth. Instead, it creates the vital mind-body balance necessary for harmonious mental-spiritual experiences against the challenging mundane environment of the often harsh material plane. [305-3, 963-1, 2799-1]
Your Mercury is sextile Venus.
You have a special love of nature and all things natural and beautiful. You appreciate harmonies especially, and have considerable ability in depicting natural rhythms and patterns through music and art. You would best direct these abilities into educational channels in conjunction with public speaking and lecturing. The emphasis in such presentations would be most helpful if artwork and music -- from film and video for instance -- were used to illustrate that which you are teaching rather than through lecturing without such audio and visual aids. [288-1, 3646-1, 2798-1]
Your Venus is conjoined with Mars.
As the love in Venus and the rashness in Mars are quite different, there is likely to be a conflict in your experience concerning your inner temperance and your outer boldness. That is, your individualism and self-assertion as manifested at times in daring activities in association with others, especially the opposite sex, clash with and hide your sympathetic, loving nature. As a result, patience and moderation would be helpful ideals for you to embrace in this experience.
You are very positive and enthusiastic in your actions as well as in your likes and dislikes, which are decidedly strong. This may make for apparently undue or excessive attractions and disaffections in your friendships. Your powerful sensuality, animal magnetism and sex appeal are likely to be the roots of these at times intense associations with others.
While you have a great love of the beautiful, have desires for a home and are quiet in your manner, you are easily aroused to passion and anger. Moodiness, jealousy and possessiveness are likely, then, to parallel your expressions of love and affection. A major rechanneling of these often conflicting urges lies in music, art, dance, physical education and physiotherapy, especially massage.
Again, self-control and tolerance need more developing. It is far easier to refrain from error, say in the form of excessive criticism during ego-power conflicts with your close relations, than to seek forgiveness for the harsh word quickly spoken.
It is therefore well that you study to show yourself approved in all good conscience to a spiritual ideal that may be lived with no need of boasting it. [324-5, 1939-1, 1669-1, 3424-1]
Your Venus is conjoined with Neptune.
From your soul journeys in Venus and Neptune, you are an inspired, super-sensitive, artistically and musically talented soul. In a gentle, sweet, sympathetic and charming fashion you are romantic yet dreamy. You are likely to have a special fondness for animals, and to have a strong compassionate feeling for all forms of suffering. You are also especially attracted to the beautiful in the opposite sex. However, adverse aspects to Venus and Neptune from other planets, such as Mars or Saturn, may bring you emotional instability, loneliness and, at times, intense changes and disappointments in your affections and love relationships.
Before returning to the earth to begin a new incarnation, you chose a soul flight pattern which took you through the consciousness environments of Venus and Neptune. The combined influence of these planetary experiences upon your inner urges makes you psychically very sensitive. Healthwise this gives you a delicate constitution which is somewhat susceptible to nervous, stress-related illnesses. Avoid overindulging in food or drink and try to exercise daily.
Were you to apply your will concerning personal affections toward ideals of universal, unconditional love and Christ-like compassion, you could reach great heights of mystical and spiritual advancement. While there may be challenges to overcome concerning laziness, as well as being too sheltered and dependent on others, you are likely to attract from past lives souls who will be helpful to you in times of need or crisis. These most likely past lives included experiences with art, music, mysticism and the sea.
You have many opportunities and incentives for doing good -- being constructive and creative -- this lifetime. This means setting and holding to ideals of service for service's sake, that the joys of knowing the source of good may be magnified in the world. Not that the good you may do should be well spoken of, for that is superficial, eye service only. Engage yourself in creative service so that others may know that God IS, and that those who earnestly seek Him will truly, and happily, find Him.
As for your likes and dislikes, your spiritual aspirations and creative goals, you are likely to have as many different ones as you have had different experiences so far this lifetime. Most of these will arise from your inner experiences, your dreams, visions, daydreams, creative fancies and the like. This makes it even more essential that you tie your inner self with and to the divine within you, so that the reflected light of the Maker, Creator, Ruler and Creative Guiding Force may be magnified in all that you do.
Your Mars is conjoined with Neptune.
The planets or spheres about the earth that have to do with the limitations -- both to the betterment and to the challenges of your life, irrespective of how you apply your will this lifetime -- are those of Neptune first, then Mars. In other words, you returned through the fiery, aggressive Mars realm from your interlife soul sojourning in the watery, spiritual and mystical dimension of Neptune.
Your choice of this soul flight pattern resulted in these two planets being joined together in the very same section of the zodiac at the time of your earth rebirth. The conjoining of two such different dimensions of awareness -- because they are so different -- is a generally difficult challenge. However, there are some things you can do. First, try to live near large bodies of water, as proximity to Neptune's domain can bring benefits. Stay close to mighty waters, then, for your financial and physical health and strength.
Second, it is important to have self-honesty and responsibility in spiritual disciplines such as prayer and meditation. For, there is the possibility of self-delusion and basic spiritual confusion as a result of interference from psychic spirit entity forces and at times obsessive thought forms. A career in the religious field, as a counselor, teacher or minister, is an excellent direction for you to take with your active mystical energies.
Through such endeavors and through contacts with souls who shared with you a Neptune sojourn and/or a common past life in spiritual service, you can be very helpful to fellow seekers. You are especially likely to go far in your development this lifetime after you reach 35 years of age. This is even more likely the more you discover one truth: your spirit guides, guardian angels and your peers are frequently more accurate than you give them credit for. You will find that your spirit guides are often more correct than your will has allowed you to be guided.
At the same time, limit your intake of alcohol and generally avoid all chemicals and drugs. Throughout your life these substances -- also ruled by Neptune -- work to your detriment rather than assistance. Instead, cultivate more of resources from Mother Nature's storehouse. These include using wood for heating, growing and storing your own food and following a natural diet. [257-5]
Your Jupiter harmoniously aspects Uranus.
Making your soul flight to begin another earth incarnation from the benevolent consciousness dimension of Jupiter, you chose to deepen your metaphysical, religio-philosophical identity by making an extended, well-timed stopover in the realm of Uranus. This decision increased your opportunities to attract money and be successful, especially as you near forty years of age.
Indeed, this is one of the most fortunate aspects for anyone to have at the time of their birth. The choice of such a favorable flight plan from these two high realms is frequently made by powerfully magnetic, unusually gifted personalities.
In previous lives many individuals with this pattern either had been closely involved with spiritual leaders of Atlantis or ancient Israel or had been European royalty. While others were Hindu yogis and spiritual teachers in this lifetime, some had a far greater than average opportunity for liberation from the rebirth cycle (that is, depending on choices they freely made, they might not need to reincarnate again).
Now Uranus and Jupiter make for a rather unique, somewhat extremist urge in your experience: you are likely to feel quite strongly yet differently at different times over the very same subject. While being entirely sincere and honest with yourself at the moment, your answer to a question is often totally different at one time than at another!
This Uranian tendency ties in with inclinations from your Atlantean incarnation. That is, you have special interests in unusual, esoteric, metaphysical, scientific and semi-scientific subjects as well as in having unusual, unexpected, and at times rather extraordinary, emotionally intense life experiences.
In Atlantis you probably had many of these same interests and types of experiences yet were faced with some very violent choices which contribute in the present to your radical nature. You are highly likely to be very good or very bad this go 'round, either extremely successful or (at least to yourself) a complete failure.
Inclined toward benevolence in thought and deed, you tend to forgive easily but find it hard to forget. You may frequently make a commitment to yourself yet are not quite able to fulfill the obligation or decision you made because of other people's attitudes (which are often as full of surprises as your own). Despite this, you have a gifted adaptability to every knowledge and work-related situation you encounter. You also are an excellent technician and a natural leader, with the ability to direct and keep a group in line very easily.
And you are a good politician and diplomat, with one exception. Having the best of intentions -- from your own viewpoint at least -- you may be a bit indiscreet in your personal interactions (especially in what you say and do as viewed by those considered to be your friends).
Moreover, depending on how your guiding ideal, practical motives and psychological/emotional attitude toward money work together (or against each other), your financial good fortune could easily turn into the opposite extreme of a pauper's poverty.
You are exceptionally intuitive and well-informed, have keen judgment with considerable material opportunities to give much to the world by leading an ennobling, inspiring life as a model for many. Therefore, consistently holding to the highest possible ideal could not be more critical for you at the present stage in your soul development.
In fact, you are likely to have developed, grown or built yourself to the point when, starting about the middle of your life, you will be in the position to accomplish a far-reaching work. For this to succeed, it will have to turn into direct, practical channels to reach not only the mental but the spiritual mind of others.
Specifically recommended is a clear correlation and practical application of Eastern and Western philosophies of life to be followed by those who have set their ideal in the Christ.
And do bear in mind always to apply your will to temper and moderate with mercy, justice and right your visions of power and success this lifetime. Remember that your free will is what makes for growth in the soul's sleep in its earthly body (as the soul slumbers upon taking on physical form at birth). Your ideals and dreams, then, are the deeds by which as a soul you are judged in your relationships with others. [195-14, 914-1, 259-8, 143-1, 4840-1, 132-1, 3298-1, 358-3, 4219-3]
Your Saturn harmoniously aspects Neptune.
You were born at a time when Saturn (practical planet of changes) and Neptune (spiritual plane of ideals, dreams, and visions) were in a resourceful, flowing pattern. This is one of the most fortunate ones to have at birth, for Neptune elevates Saturn to its highest, most ideal level.
Therefore, from your karmic past this brings you spirituality and philosophical depth with the ability to rely on and apply your dream and meditation guidance in practical ways. Rather than seeking counsel around you, meet your Maker within yourself, and let the guidance come there as to what you shall do.
Another fortunate feature of this pattern is the opportunity for you to explore inner spiritual planes successfully and without misfortune. You can then express your experiences in useful, concrete ways valuable to others on the spiritual path.
In other words, you can be of unique service as the practical spiritual pioneer who dreams. These experiences in the earth are not so that you can achieve either fame or fortune or even the recognition of a wonderful accomplishment, but that you can always be a channel through which blessings and help may come to others.
In addition, you are inclined to be very conscientious and hard working, with very good business skills, especially in management and organizational work, and in design or planning.
Be sure to balance the responsible, business side of your life with opportunities for rest and recreation. You will be even more effective when you labor if you take time to love nature -- to smell its flowers, listen to its birds, watch its sunsets.
NOTE: The 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
Your Sun is in Leo (Tropical zodiac).
Leo symbolizes the consciousness wherein there is strength, creativity and virility, as well as a certain headstrong or willful nature in how you apply yourself in relationship with others.
For instance, reading biographical or historical novels about European royalty, daydreaming about the courts of Kings and Queens of modern Europe or ancient times and other grandeurs of the past may bring to your conscious mind memories of previous incarnations when you were at the forefront of things. Hence to this very day there probably remains within you considerable inner strength along with a strong feeling for behind-the-scenes intrigues as well as a powerful sense of individualism. These qualities are probably connected with your past life experiences involved -- directly and indirectly -- with leaders of society and government.
You are also likely to have an above-average interest in the great artistic and spiritual accomplishments of the grand cathedrals and great churches of Britain and Europe, as well as the ancient temples of the Mediterranean world.
In addition, you may have been one of the higher-ranking Vikings who, like other royalty, also had an exciting lifestyle. And in far earlier times, during and after the last days of Lemuria and Atlantis, you may have been among the Incan pyramid builders in the mountains of South America, the Mayan plains of Central America, and of course, Egypt, the land which is virtually synonymous with great pyramids.
The Sun is the ruler or symbol of Leo, and represents strength and soul force. So, from the Sun's influence and the past life experiences summarized here, you are inclined to have a special sense of pride and dignity which, depending on how you apply your will and the ideals you have set for yourself, can either enhance or hinder your relationships with others (and hence either advance or retard your soul growth this lifetime). [533-20, 2905-3]
Your Moon is in Taurus (Tropical zodiac).
Taurus' influence inclines you to be somewhat headstrong, with a very set and determined manner. Hence you are not always understood in everything you try to do, or in things which you know yourself to be true. Yet long-lasting are the influences you make on others with whom you have deep associations from previous lives.
Remember, success or accomplishment in life is not a matter of some great force or influence. Just as taught by the Master, it is not the power of the storm or of the earthquake or of great noises and the like. Rather it is the still small voice speaking from within you which becomes the influence through which movements of truly great forces really arise.
Since your childhood, being outdoors and living close to nature is probably more significant to you than to most others. This love of nature and the great outdoors is from one or more past lives spent on a farm or in nature settings. For ages countries on the Mediterranean such as ancient Egypt, Greece and virtually all of the ancient Mideast lived in close contact with nature. So did the Native Americans of pre-Columbian America. And surely you were one of them.
Farming, fishing and hunting then, are among your familiar pursuits (even if they only involve occasional outdoor activities like gardening, boating or indoors, tending flowers and plants). You also probably have greater confidence in holistic, natural healing approaches than in modern medicine's "advanced" yet artificial technology.
Now, Venus is the planet which rules or best symbolizes the essence of the sign Taurus. Of course, Venus symbolizes the female sex. Centuries ago in oriental cultures women were more feminine -- and experienced much more respect -- than today. A lifetime in Asia and lands like China, then, are also a likely part of your past life experiences.[1149-1, 1641-1]
Your Moon is in Aries (Sidereal zodiac).
From Aries are found inclinations often to be considered by others as being headstrong. You may also be very hard to convince alongside judgments you have made which have been the determining factors in your experience. Yet once you are convinced of something, you become very determined in that particular direction.
This tendency toward self-determination and being headstrong is probably rooted in at least one lifetime in ancient Palestine. Your likely link with the tribal nomads known as the Hebrews is expressed in your urge either to be a powerful yet somewhat dogmatic leader or to be inclined to follow someone with strong leadership qualities.
Also, living in large or extended family units dominated by a strong director or leader (whether male or female), having special admiration for winners, or even being totally submissive to another person who you feel is somehow in charge of you and your life are characteristic inclinations from similar experiences long ago.
Of course, Mars is the primary planet which symbolizes or rules the sign of Aries. This makes Mars and martial urges of special significance to you this lifetime. Therefore, depending on whether or not you apply your will, responding to conflict situations with directness and force are likely to be among your subconscious urges. These urges are from your prior experiences in the realm of Mars and from one or more past lives in the harsh, ancient desert culture of Israel and neighboring Arab lands.
Also from Mars, the Ram influence and this past lifetime in ancient Canaan and Palestine you may feel a need not only to be a leader or director but to excel in your career or in more physical endeavors like exercising or a competitive activities such as sports.[279-4, 340-15, 1804-1]
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.
NOTE: If 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 Decanate
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, is likely.
Your Moon is in Sagittarius Decanate
Your sidereal Moon is in the decanate of Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter as Past Life Planet points to a prominent soul journey between earth incarnations in the realm of Jupiter, called Brahmaloka in Vedic astrology. Your Jupiter sojourn demonstrates that you have reached a high level of development toward a universal consciousness among all men and women.
Your special Jupiter sojourn also indicates you have a strong inner commitment to faith, optimism and group causes potentially affecting large numbers of people. Past lives in humanitarian or spiritual service and ministry, religious, royal and priestly affairs are likely, especially lifetimes in Egypt and the Holy Land.
