Ry Redd's Cayce Past Life Report for
November 4, 1946

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 in an inharmonious pattern with Saturn.
You tend to seek out new ideas and try new things yourself even if others have questioned their value. You are likely frequently to be undertaking specific projects which have good financial prospects and potentials for popularity and helpfulness. Yet more often than not, at least until you reach middle age, they have not materialized. Along with these challenges you may at times have a rather broad negative attitude toward life in the earth plane, as well as a low self-image.
When disturbing factors come into your experience you are likely to turn and seek a new direction, to start over again. This is a tendency from your indwelling as a soul in the Saturn dimension between earth lives. When these tests and soul trials arise, it would be well if you heeded the injunction to stand steadfast and see God's glory within you.
These disappointments and frustrations are probably returning to you from past life experiences in which you were responsible for bringing similar challenging experiences into the lives of others.
At times, your longing for changes in your associations has resulted in considerable daydreaming. Visualizing ideal situations and possessions or relationships which you might be engaged in, especially materially and financially, is an avenue you may often use for venting your frustrations.
As you learn patience and longsuffering -- out of a sense of seeing these obstacles and delays as opportunities for soul growth and giving rather than out of duty, doom or destiny -- greater will be your inner peace and spiritual development. [487-1]
Your Sun is conjoined with Jupiter.
You have a basic disdain for those individuals who are overbearing and presumptuous in their actions. There is a distinct probability that this is rooted in past lives when you were in a leadership role at the center of revolutions and reform movements for political and religious freedom.
These likely lifetimes range from ancient Egypt and Israel to modern Europe and colonial America.
It is also probable that you came into the earth plane at your birth from the magnanimous, ennobling dimension of Jupiter. This is because you had been a service-oriented, "Jupiterian" soul in one of your past lives, probably your immediately previous one.
Marked capacities in ministry and healing, as well as teaching, law and finance, are therefore yours in this present lifetime because you have excelled in these areas in previous lives.
In addition, you are exceptional in many ways, given to be in close relationship with unseen, spiritual forces. Your latent urge is likely to be always governed by an uplifting desire on behalf of yourself as well as others.
In fact, you have distinct abilities in psychological, religious and financial studies. Present potentials from former lives indicate that you could do well in a wide variety of professional endeavors, whether in banking or fundraising, the ministry, or as a psychological counselor or teacher. [599-3, 4714-1, 187-1]
Your Moon harmoniously aspects Jupiter.
High ennobling qualities are yours from your soul journey in the Jupiter sphere between lives. Uplifting influences, then, arise from your experiences in both your Jupiter sojourn and in past life positions of prominence, most likely on a high, history-making level as a spiritual leader. You are then, a loving, noble soul in your interactions with others, causing them to have faith in themselves (and in you).
In fact, with your greater possibilities in giving aid in every manner, you would make a WONDERFUL minister. You would also be successful in management, administration, economics an politics. Coming from your past lives of service on behalf of others, you may guide and direct many souls this lifetime.
While you have quite a temper, you are very capable of controlling it and turning it into channels through which better influences come, both to yourself and to others.
You should also have a greater deal of the world's material goods for you to use and share with others. You are therefore one with an elevating outlook and lifestyle, and will give a lot to the development of other souls.
Drawing on the resourceful side of your akashic record -- where your soul development through caring service from past lives is stored -- you are likely to experience great blessings. While some may see you as "lucky", what is really happening is that soul links from previous compassionate incarnations are attracted to you and want to help you. This good karma will especially bring you benefits in your home life, particularly concerning your mother, with whom you have a strong, mutually beneficial bond from your deep cosmic past. [2903-1, 140-3, 2855-1]
Your Moon harmoniously aspects Sun.
This pattern is particularly supportive of your spiritual development this lifetime. Directly resulting from your previous life accomplishments, this pattern not only enhances your physical health, but also aids your development toward the goal of the higher calling, as set in the Christ. The Sun leaves you with the positive karmic afterglow of relationships from your cosmic past. Since most of your meaningful associations will have past life linkages, the potential is there for primarily positive relationships in this life.
This pattern also gives you high potential for the successful integration of the conscious and unconscious mind: the outer and inner self. The degree of this success is shaped by whether or not you apply your will in a positive manner.
Coming from a harmonious conception with positive karmic connections with your parents, you will be successful through exercising your independence, inner stability and self-reliance. However, do realize that while you can never be completely self-sufficient, spiritual development comes from within. Never allow that development and the experiences associated with it to separate your spiritual self totally from your physical, financial or mental activities. Those who do often become egoists and therefore stumbling blocks to themselves.
Your successful personality integration is indicated in how you have gone forward in your soul development this lifetime by the sheer force of your will. You have so well exercised your will that you have developed far beyond the level of the average person. For instance, you are able to force yourself to do things which are unpleasant. At the same time you are able to avoid purely self-satisfying experiences, especially those pertaining to carnal, sexual desires.
You are very efficiency-oriented and inclined to make a little go a long way. Your vocation should include educational work with young people and any plausible area where you can communicate a specific message to a wide audience. You are then one who can bring a great deal of joy and upliftment to others by teaching spiritual principles as well as by being an example for others to follow. You are also able to give much joy through your own individual efforts. [1201-1]
Your Moon is in an inharmonious pattern with Mercury.
You have high mental abilities, yet your temperament may be high-strung, restless or nervous. Your subconscious mind and emotions may have a tendency at times to override common sense and rationality. Also, you may frequently find yourself enduring unnecessary personal hardships as a result of saying things which are not as well thought out as you wished they had been.
Therefore, all forms of gossip and criticizing others should be avoided at all costs. This will be like bread cast upon the waters which returns to you either for your own undoing or for your correction. It is additionally likely that when you find yourself the object of criticism or controversy, your speaking against others in past lives -- particularly in your previous life -- is coming back to you for healing and forgiveness in the present. More specifically, it is important that you exercise special caution when signing any contracts or in making important agreements, verbal or otherwise.
It may not be always clear to you how emotions -- both your own and others' -- affect communication. For instance you may feel that the emotional assurance another person wants you to provide is excessive or unnecessary. Or, you may tend to subjugate or limit your feelings strictly under intellectual or physical categories. In other words, you have chosen this lifetime to meet a challenge involving your mind and your emotions.
Souls from your cosmic past will be attracted to you as opportunities for you to respond with love and self- control. Difficulties are most likely with your family and relatives, both in your present life and from previous incarnations. Patience, empathy and a genuine effort to understand the other person's point of view will go very far in correcting your sometimes misplaced emotional attitudes and communication habits.
A helpful affirmation for you to repeat in meditation goes something like, "Unless I am sure my ideas are correct, I will keep my thoughts and feelings to myself. Because I often let my emotions cloud an issue and tend to rationalize too much, I will try to assess situations more carefully. I will thus achieve the balance I need between the feeling side of my nature and the logical, between my personal opinions and objective reality." [2396-2, 759-1]
Your Mercury is conjoined with Mars.
Your participation in spats or arguments can become very disturbing through the anger felt. At times you may even like to argue. You are very self-determined yet with high mental abilities. You are nonetheless one that can be easily reasoned with. You will resent any strong criticism or undue pressure being put upon you in requiring you to do things.
You are not only exceptionally intelligent but at times somewhat power hungry. There is the likelihood of feeling intellectually self-important as a result of your high mental abilities. This inclines you to desire positions of fame and power. We should always be reminded that power in our hands when we do not consider the Source of all power can be worse than an albatross around our neck: it can be a millstone which drowns us.
A past life as an astrologer-soothsayer or powerful priest in ancient times, say in Persia or Egypt, may constitute the karmic roots for your tendencies intellectually to overpower and manipulate others with your knowledge. Long ago you may have used your position for personal gain with the result that in the present there may be tendencies toward self-exaltation. Present misuse of mental -- specifically higher consciousness -- powers, is probably rooted in just such a selfish lifetime long ago.
Since then, your likely sojourns in the consciousness dimensions of Mercury and Mars have brought your occasional intellectual power-tripping into the present. One way to keep such urges under control is to hold fast to an ideal founded neither in earthly or exclusively intellectual things. Instead, set an ideal rooted not only in spiritual applications of your own remarkable mental gifts, but also in that of others.
You are exceptionally well balanced mentally and physically. You are prone to giving and demanding much detail work both from yourself and from others. You have a strong striving for detail as well as an overall practical orientation of your strong mental energies. You are inclined toward the study especially of historic subjects. You have an open mind, apparently, on any question, yet you make all final decisions for yourself.
The major challenge to these potentials is what could be your mild hang-up on being mentally high and mighty. That is, you are probably very determined in your purposes, perhaps going at times to extremes to gratify personal wishes which are unexplainable to others. You are one that might do well to heed the injunction, "Mind not high things but humble yourself to men of low estate".
In a past life in ancient Egypt in the Court of the Pharaohs for instance, you were probably of high estate. Before that you may well have been a teacher in India, where your present extraordinary mental powers and dexterity had its origins. [1635-3, 1334-1]
Your Mercury is conjoined with Venus.
You have high intellectual abilities together with a strong home loving and artistic temperament. You have a cautious, resolute and tenacious mind, reserved and self-controlled as far as feelings for others is concerned. You are interested in people, are a good conversationalist and companion, and a wholesome influence on most groups. Your entrance into groups or companionships with others is even more beneficial to them than to you. You would make an excellent creative writer or designer, being interested in all forms of the arts, especially music, color and form.
In fact, your intellectual, artistic abilities are very likely to be considerably above average. Therefore your potentials especially in the literary field are exceptional. Commercial applications of your mental abilities in law and advertising are also encouraged.
The love influence in its highest or noblest sense is primary for you. Were others to criticize you for allowing what they perceive as carnal love to be influencing you excessively --your experience of "love at first sight" for example -- you do little condemning in return. Although you and many others see the sacredness of such physical expressions, your love expressions are likely to be mostly on the level of speaking kindly and having generosity, a gentleness of manner and trueness of spirit. You are more likely to fall in love with a beautiful evening, and to find much wonder in the moon, the planets and stars. The beauty of nature, with its clouds, lightening, thunder and other natural voices are for you -- though maybe hard for others to understand - - an especially rewarding, stabilizing influence.
Attraction to and by the beautiful and handsome in the opposite sex will often influence you a great deal. If other past life indicators point to challenges in this area of your personal life, they are most likely to deal with the influences of passion, on both the mental and purely physical levels. That is, your feelings, desire, and sensation -- all elements of passion -- may at times be overactive, even impulsive. There is also some danger of jealousy and misplaced trust in love relationships. This may actually be due to a mild aversion of forming close relationships, because of past life associations needing self-healing in the present.
Moreover, it may often be difficult for you to hear from others, or yourself express through stories, jokes or the like, that which is considered coarse or crude. However, having considerable mental concentration powers as well as charm you can control and disguise your feelings when you feel the need. [1136-1, 2612-1, 2386-1, 1792-1, 234-1, 305-3, 1637-1, 304-5, 3271-1, 2124-3, 1716-1, 1991-1, 1230-1]
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 harmoniously aspects Saturn.
Considerable mental resources are indicated from your repeated past life endeavors involving communication and education. As to your abilities, then, as seen from the pattern of your past lives, you could be an instructor through the means or channels of a speaker or writer, or one who in some way supports and encourages those who are seeking to know their closer walk with the Creative Forces, or God.
Over several lifetimes you have reached a mature level intellectually. That is, you are in a position to make creative, renewing additions to old principles constructively and in definite, positive directions. You have the ability to give a good deal of impetus to building on what has been the failure of another, whether physically, financially or mentally. Intellectually very competent and efficient, you also have great self-control and reserve.
However, you are likely to be most reserved in the area of making contacts with groups. You may continually plan out things in your mind, using a great deal of mental energy and ability, as to what would be best, but slow in carrying these plans to fruition until contacts or associations have been made through some definite channel from some outside source.
In other words, although you have above average capacity to organize and plan things out, mentally you may at times be a bit too cautious in following through on your decisions until some specific confirmation or proof offers itself. This comes from your ability to reason from any viewpoint, yet for something to be valuable to you, it must be rational and reasonable as well as practical.
You are therefore one with high mental ability who uses discretion in many ways; these are influences from the free application of your will together with your previous lives and of your afterlife soul journey in the Mercurian realm of awareness. You also have the capacity for what others would describe as "sharp trading." While you are subtle in different ways, you are also one who speaks what is on your mind at once.
In real estate sales and investments you will probably find much self-satisfaction, as well as financial rewards. However, it does not matter much in what you sell or invest, along as the commodity or investment is one in which you have faith. [3129-1, 274-1, 1001-7, 3929-1]
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 Jupiter is in an inharmonious pattern with Saturn.
"The merchant is never the student, nor is the student ever the merchant." You might heed this saying, for your experience in Saturn brings you such changes in your career that you may muddle it up by going in too many directions at once. While you have a great deal of soul development potential this lifetime -- and this go 'round for you is critical, as it is for most of us -- you could defeat yourself through an inclination at times to "give up." You thereby evade the responsibilities which come with having such powers and talents as you possess.
The main self-defeating pattern to watch out for more specifically involves your Saturnian urges for travel, a change of scene, always wanting a fresh start and taking on far more than you can realistically handle. You are also likely to need constant stimulation, with a tendency toward heroics, (but without sufficiently flexing your own spiritual muscles).
Instead, your heroism and hero worship should be replaced with self-direction through following the IDEALS of spiritual heroes, patriarchs and prophets. An added reason for increasing the role of personal ideals for self-direction is your inclination to exploit situations rather than taking constructive advantage of opportunities.
This is not at all to say that you are irresponsible: quite the contrary. You are much more likely to be in positions where you face heavy responsibilities. However, confusions may often come as to the best way to derive the maximum benefit from them, both for yourself and for others. With these burdens comes a lifetime with a vast scope of experience, yet frequently misinterpreted by others (hence the confusion just mentioned).
While at times taken advantage of because of it, you nonetheless usually choose to see only the good in others, and are a natural -- although occasionally confused -- diplomat.
In addition to diplomacy, your Jupiterian experience also gives you considerable vision in the financial, political, social and religious areas of life. Applying yourself in these directions, especially though writing, a lot of help and good will come your way which you can share with a very wide audience. [811-2, 1426-1, 1089-3, 2496-1, 773-1]
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 Scorpio (Tropical zodiac).
At times you may be considered by others as somewhat different, although on your own part, when those of comparable mental ability are part of your experience, you are known as a soul with nobleness of purpose and high-mindedness of principles. You are, in other words, one who is ABOVE the ordinary and may go far in leading, directing and assisting many souls to reach a better understanding of elemental, universal principles.
Long ago you may have been part of the once mighty Mongolian people of the ancient Gobi desert, or among the culturally advanced Chinese. From such lifetimes as these, you have the ability to perform what is expected of you and to do what is necessary without being held back by your feelings or by considerations of a personal nature. This is a strength you inherited from one or more past lives in these remote Asian cultures, whose people shared this self-denying trait.
Perhaps you were once a young Chinese woman who gave birth to many children, ran a large household and pleased the master of the house. You may have done all this while quietly enduring the agony of brutally bound feet which was once a rather cultural requirement of the true ladies of ancient China.
Bear in mind that Mars is the planet of energy, power and war which rules or best symbolizes the essence of Scorpio. It may not be surprising then, that you may have been a Mongolian warrior who fought to the death for your tribal leader without hesitation or concern for your own injury or pain.
Above all, in these Asian past life settings, you had dignity, as you learned to cope with harsh conditions and challenges without wasting your energy on your personal needs.
A more recent incarnation among Native Americans like the plains Indians is also likely. Yet whether your life was among Orientals or American Indians, your characteristic past life suppression of individual feelings in sacrifice for the larger interests of your family, group or tribe may in the present make you appear cold, insensitive or uncaring, when you are actually very caring and compassionate. [2710-1]
Your Moon is in Pisces (Tropical zodiac).
Coming under the influences of Pisces, water and religion or spiritual matters are likely to have an untold influence on you. Of course, this depends upon the way you respond to these kinds of experiences, for they have probably played an important part or at least have been innate in your experience through many lifetimes in the earth.
Pisces means or symbolizes what is naturally, or by its very nature, representative of influences of the higher soul or higher spiritual level. Hence those things of the spiritual nature should preferably be the way in which your judgments are drawn, as to whether this or that activity should be your impelling influence. Not that you should become lost in motives or in influences impelling your actions: just use those things of the spiritual import as the measuring rod of your activities and experiences.
In light of this, the period around the birth and ministry of Jesus, the Christ, is the clearest past life for you to recall and build upon in the present. You may even remember a lifetime as part of Roman culture, where priority was placed upon position in society and in the military.
Another early Church memory might be stronger for you: the hills around Galilee and the desert near the Dead Sea where the Essenes and others gathered to meditate and study. Then too you may be emotionally drawn to painful scenes of being among early Christians who were martyred for the courage of believing in the Messiah. Regardless of specifics, you are quite likely always to be dominated by a sense of expectancy and mystery.
In later lifetimes since the early Church period, you were probably celibate, as a nun or monk of a leading religious order.
Noble, compassionate Jupiter and spiritual, mystical Neptune are the two rulers or key symbols for the sign of Pisces. From Neptune comes the intuitive forces, the mystical or mysterious influences in your experience, whether you allow them to be mentally or consciously active or not. Another influence of these planets as expressed through Pisces is that although you have a great deal of compassion, you may be too passive in expressing your personal energy and soul force. Also, it will probably be much easier for you than for most people to suppress your sexual desires because of the memory of one or more past lives when you set aside your personal concerns for the good of the entire community. [816-3, 1506-1, 997-1]
Your Sun is in Libra (Sidereal zodiac).
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 still.
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 Moon is in Aquarius (Sidereal zodiac).
Aquarius makes for the application of your mental self, so that there are tendencies for you to analyze carefully any given project, or any undertaking dealing with the material world. Also, the more often you undertake projects when others must be considered as well, it will be far better that you manifest a truly cooperative spirit while doing so.
The planet ruled or symbolized by Aquarius is Uranus, which is the purely Atlantean planet. In other words, Uranus is the principal theme of Aquarius, and because Uranus is the realm of a distinctive Atlantean nature, then Aquarius is the zodiacal sign best symbolized by thoughts, personalities and activities akin to the series of prehistoric "space age" civilizations known as Atlantis.
For example, you may once have been involved with scientific discovery and invention, and therefore in the present have the potential again for investigating more scientific or technical areas like computers, engineering, inventing, research, astrology and parapsychology, space travel and the like.
Other similar experiences and abilities with high technologies ranging from electronics in medicine to communications are close to you in terms of your interests and abilities, yet are far away in time. This is also true of a great number of souls who have incarnated in the twentieth century (especially since World War Two), with memories spanning many millennia between the present time and the ancient Atlantean civilizations.
Yet other lifetimes have surely intervened since your Atlantean incarnation. They could range from being an astrologer or magician in the courts of kings to a dedicated pioneer at the frontier of a new land. Or you may have been one who set sail for distant ports only to be carried away in search of lost legends. Other lives, including the present one, could well feature you as one whose stride through life has labeled you as a dreamer, at least to more material-minded souls. [1265-1, 3902-2]
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 Aquarius Decanate
Your sidereal Sun is in the decanate of Aquarius, which is co-ruled by Uranus and Saturn. Being the "Atlantean" planet, Uranus especially brings you highly original yet extremist urges, with clairvoyant capacities and special abilities in psychic, metaphysical and scientific or technological areas.
Your soul experience in the realm of Uranus between earth lives, perhaps immediately after your prominent lifetime in Atlantis, gives you distinct potentials for fame or infamy, for evolution or revolution, for service or self. This makes the cultivation and consistent application of guiding ideals of potentially great value for you this go 'round.
Your Moon is in Gemini Decanate
Your sidereal Moon is in Gemini decanate, which is ruled by Mercury. Mercury as Past Life Planet gives you a high intellectual capacity, marked data handling or communications skills, a distinct thirst for knowledge and a natural aptitude for writing, teaching and research. A prominent Mercurian lifetime as an Egyptian or Hebrew scribe and/or teacher in colonial Asia, Africa or the early Americas is also likely.
