HOW TO USE THIS READING


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 reading, Steven, 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 reading 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 reading to your personal life, Steven, 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.





What is Karmic Astrology, how does it "work" and how does it relate to reincarnation?

In ancient Egypt, Persia, India, Greece, Rome and in native cultures around the world, it was popularly believed that astrology was actually based on reincarnation, karma and the afterlife. By karma is meant the meeting of oneself in the present through thoughts and deeds from the past. According to the Edgar Cayce readings and the teachings of Rudolf Steiner, all planets, including the Sun and the Moon, have been part of your afterlife experience in your passage between death and a new birth in each lifetime. Astrology, then, cannot be separated from reincarnation (vice versa). It operates not through the signs of the zodiac, but according to a combination of emotional, earthly past life karma and mental, mostly subconscious urges from your unique planetary sojourns between earth lives.


How does the Cayce approach to reincarnation and astrology reveal the meaning and purpose of life?

In gaining a deeper comprehension of your experiences -- physical as well as spiritual -- in the realms of earth, Sun, Moon and other planets, know that all these experiences, challenging or otherwise, are opportunities for you to accomplish this single mission. Therefore, Steven, use whatever you have in hand -- whether it be astrology, reincarnation, scripture study, chanting, music, meditation, prayer or your dream life --to enhance your inner awareness.


Your planetary journeys in the afterlife, then, represent lessons in consciousness and each new earth life is an opportunity to apply -- and ultimately to perfect -- the lessons learned in these heavenly visitations. Again, the purpose of this Cosmic Course is to develop spiritually and comprehensively.


What are "astrological aspects" and "planetary sojourns" and how are they related to the planets of the solar system?

"Planetary sojourns" are frequently mentioned in the Edgar Cayce readings. They denote your consciousness experiences - - afterlife soul journeys -- in the non-physical dimensions between lives. The different dimensions of these spiritual experiences are linked with the orbits of the planets around the sun. Cayce also calls these interplanetary experiences "astrological aspects." The personal interpretations researched and written for your planetary sojourns begin with the Moon, which serves as a kind of base station from which to review the life just ended and to travel in the heavens before starting a new earth life. Planetary sojourns include afterlife experiences involving the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune (Pluto is rarely mentioned in the Cayce readings and is therefore excluded).


How are planetary sojourns related to the imagination and to our subconscious urges?

As souls between lifetimes we experience each of the ten planetary sojourns as an attribute ultimately to be perfected, both in Spirit and in the flesh. Now, each planetary heaven has a peculiar mental-spiritual vibration which is just a little higher than the physical vibration of the earth. Each thought vibration experienced in these planetary heavens uniformly resonates to a common urge, principle or mental image.

For example,love and beauty are the basic vibrations making up the common principle of the Venus dimension to be perfected, how to deal with anger and aggression is the lesson peculiar to Mars, while communication and intellectual ability is the dominant chord of Mercury.

Cayce illustrates our thought vibrations and inner urges from our planetary sojourns -- and the lessons we are to learn from our experiences there -- through the metaphor of attending different colleges. Going to one university or another makes for an idiom, mode of speech, lifestyle or attitude which is unique to that place of learning and living. In other words, our mental urges and images make up the essence or the SPIRIT of the institution which was attended. Even though their major field of study might be the same, one student might go to Harvard, another to Yale, and yet another to Oxford, Stanford or the University of Arizona. These students would carry with them the vibrations they created by their years of activity and influence upon -- however small -- those universities and college towns. In this way, then, not only do your inclinations and inner tendencies arise from your activity in a given planetary sojourn between lives, but you can potentially influence the planets more than they influence you!


On my own, can I discover my past lives and planetary sojourns? If so, how should I treat the information in this profile?

Your imagination as well as your dreams draw on your unique reservoir of these mostly subconscious mental urges and inclinations. As a result, Steven, your planetary soul journeys -- and your past lives as well -- make for impressions or vibrations which you can tap into through your dreams and during your deeper meditations, as well as during hypnotic regressions. With this in mind, take care that you balance your inner guidance and intuitions about your past lives with the information provided in your personal profile. Cayce emphasized that we each know within everything we need to know about ourselves, past, present and future. Attunement to your own Higher Self, then, should always take priority over information from sources outside yourself (including this profile).


If some of the material in my reading appears to be inconsistent or contradictory, how can this be explained?

Interpretations of different types of patterns between planets of somewhat opposite natures may come up in your reading. One thing this means is that you are perhaps more complex than you thought you were. Another is that you could be expressing contrasting qualities at different times. Most likely, however, you expressed tendencies to behave in certain ways or to think along certain lines at one time in your life, say when you were young, but have simply outgrown these patterns at this point in your life.

Above all, take the information in your profile and carefully, prayerfully weigh it against what you have learned from going within in meditation, or in your dream life. Always remember that you are your own best source of information about you, whether you are consciously aware of it or not!


How are the Cayce Readings used to identify my previous incarnations and planetary sojourns?

With nearly 8,000 indexed references to astrology --mostly to planets -- there is obviously a vast amount of astrological material in the Edgar Cayce readings. With all its uplifting spiritual counseling involving past lives, planetary afterlife journeys and present opportunities for growth, this material indeed has practical, immediate value in our lives today. After all, while we each are unique, with unique birthtimes and birthcharts, we all have in common the fact that a horoscope can be erected for the time we were born. Horoscopes can also be set up for the individuals who received the Cayce readings. Therefore astrology is a valid way to link and apply the readings' rich contents to seekers such as yourself who did not have the great fortune of getting a "life reading" from Edgar Cayce.

Using the birth data provided at the beginning of each Cayce reading, with the aid of computers hundreds of horoscopes were set up for the individuals who received the original readings. Planet positions in a given birthchart were carefully compared with what the corresponding reading had to say about that same individual's planets and past life experiences. A given reading's interpretations of two previous planetary sojourn influences upon a certain soul, for instance Mercury and Jupiter, was compared with the type of aspect pattern found between Mercury and Jupiter in that individual's horoscope.

Interpretations of your aspects and past lives, then, are a synthesis of material from readings given for individuals with your very same patterns. Thus, Steven, in your personal profile, you will find past life and planetary sojourning interpretations based on what the Edgar Cayce readings say about your unique planetary patterns.

Also, most of the narratives which comprise your profile identify your career potentials and relationship dynamics. Some include health indicators and suggest remedial measures like wearing specific planetary gemstones and using prayer, affirmations, auto-suggestion and working with ideals. Yet to get the most out of your Profile, link your study of it with your meditation, prayer and dream life. And remember that in your deeper meditations and dreams you can tap into your subconscious mind. You can thereby retrieve valuable guidance on how to use your experiences in former lives and planetary soul journeys between lives toward greater soul growth this lifetime.

What are planetary patterns and how are they referred to in the Cayce readings?

Simple geometric patterns or angles between planets mentioned by Cayce in a reading for someone were frequently found in the corresponding birthchart for the individual who received the reading. Three main categories of aspect patterns have been found in the readings and therefore are employed in your profile. First, there is the conjunction, which occurs when two or more planets are conjoined, or in the same place in the zodiac. (The most easily recognized conjunctions are those at a New Moon or an eclipse, when the Sun and Moon are conjoined).

Next there are harmonious patterns between planets. Considered as flowing and easy, harmonious aspect patterns were described by Cayce as "benevolent" and "beneficial." Harmonious patterns represent resources available for our use this lifetime (for instance, in our careers). Harmonious angles are basically triangular or hexagonal in shape, like the honeycomb and the snowflake. To be more specific, two planets are in a harmonious pattern when they are 1/3 or 1/6 of the zodiac away from each other. When 1/3 of the zodiac apart, the angle formed between two planets is a triangle (called a trine for short). When 1/6 of the zodiac separates two planets, the angle formed is hexagonal in shape. This is called a sextile aspect.

Generally, then, the more harmonious aspects -- the sextile, trine and some instances of the conjunction -- were psychically seen by Cayce as generally indicating resourceful life experiences. For example, in many instances, especially when involving your Sun, Mars and Jupiter, these more flowing, positive aspects indicate you have natural potentials for leadership, from your having been a leader in one or more past lives.

Last, there is the inharmonious pattern between planets at your birth. Representing challenges to convert into opportunities for spiritual growth, Cayce consistently referred to these patterns as "adverse" or "afflictions". The angle formed can be that of a square, or a perpendicular angle, when planets are 1/4 of the zodiac away from each other. On the other hand, planets can be 1/2 of the zodiac apart. They are then, of course, opposite each other in the heavens. In fact, the most widely known inharmonious pattern is the Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are opposite each other. Incidentally, the square is more internal, while the opposition is more external. The opposition shows areas where compromise is needed with others with whom you have karma to work out from past lives.


Moreover, there is a distinct internal consistency to the readings' details on past lives and soul journeys in the planetary dimensions as compared with the type of aspect found in the corresponding horoscope. The inharmonious aspects are consistently identified by Cayce as indicating a lack of will power. This is especially the case with the square aspect. The opposition aspect is characterized by Cayce specifically as presenting "adverse conditions" in the form of self-doubt, or being "afflicted" in applying principles in a spirit of compromise with others. Again, these are karmic conditions --"meeting self" as Cayce put it -- from previous incarnations.


How can meditation best be used in connection with the Cayce information about my planetary patterns? Also, what kind of results can be expected from using affirmations on a regular basis?

To begin with, the interpretations of your planetary patterns which make up your profile are paraphrased from the original Cayce readings. They are a representation of your collective experience from the past. Each planetary pattern depicts a portion of your overall personal pattern. Taken collectively, then, your planetary patterns show the precise stage of growth and development you have attained prior to this lifetime. Therefore, Steven, understanding your patterns and working with their energies play a vital role in releasing past behaviors which have become stumblingblocks in the present.

Recently, a way was devised to help you do this. Affirmations have been written for many of the narratives. They describe a certain energy pattern that the planets in the pattern represent. By using these affirmations, several important things happen. First, you begin to acknowledge the influence your aspects exert on your life. Second, in the case of harmonious, flowing patterns, repeating the affirmations and saying the prayers gives you a chance to recognize, affirm, appreciate and give thanks for your good qualities.

As you use the affirmations with a sincere heart and on a regular basis, you will begin to notice subtle changes in your situation. In time, Steven, these changes will become dynamic vehicles for growth. There is no better way to mitigate "negative" astrological and past life influences and to enhance the benefits of your "positive" traits than through affirmations.


Overall, then, how can I best direct my free will toward greater soul development in this life and prepare for my next lifetime?

First, all influences from planetary sojourns are related to your unique past life history. This is in turn is entirely subject to the action of your free will. Cayce repeatedly makes this point. Whether flowing or difficult, harmonious or inharmonious, your planetary patterns -- as seen through Cayce's clairvoyant eyes -- reveal how you can best direct your will toward greater soul growth this lifetime. As you study your reading, Steven, especially note any patterns which emerge, such as multiple mention of the same career or relationship potential or likely past life. These themes should take on special significance in your search and present areas you are likely to continue growing in during your next lifetime.

Most important, though is the necessity to recall that ALL apparent obstacles in your path are spiritual growth opportunities. They are to be welcomed by your will and blessed from your heart. Whether pointing to past achievements or failures, your planetary patterns show what kind of resources are available or are in need of development, both in this life and the next, through the application of your will.

Your birthmap or horoscope containing these planetary patterns is therefore no more of a "cause" for future failure or success than is your high school or college transcript a cause for your failure or success in life. Both your birthmap and educational transcript indicate mental training from learning experiences of different kinds and on a variety of levels. All are subject to change through the application of your free will.

Your birth chart interpretation is based on the positions of the planets at the time of your birth as interpreted through the Edgar Cayce readings for individuals with your very same planetary positions at birth. For the benefit of students of astrology, these positions, along with other technical information, are listed below:

Your Sun is conjoined with Mars.

You probably lived on the American frontier in your previous life, perhaps in Kentucky, Tennessee or Texas, where Daniel Boone and Sam Houston later became folk heroes. Or, a few centuries earlier, Steven, you may have been a Viking or Norseman: long before Columbus, you may even have crossed the Atlantic with the likes of Eric the Red!

You are able to make yourself felt in any environment or situation through the impressions you leave on others. Of course, it is not what one thinks or would have one believe that one thinks, but it is what one does that counts. Being very much the doer, and also very willful, your very presence is influential in many situations. By who you are and what you do, you leave impressions upon others; yet remember that what you are and do may speak so loudly sometimes that people do not hear what you say.

In Mars is found afterlife experiences in consciousness or in spirit which give you executive abilities. Therefore, Steven, in whatever line of endeavor you might engage in, or in whatever activity you may undertake, you could, in fact you WOULD make a success of it.

In addition, you are not one to act toward another as if they didn't exist or to behave in an entirely detached manner toward ANY experience which might be yours. Your development has been so energetically directed toward the Whole that everything you do -- whether good or bad, mental or physical -- must influence the next thing you do.

Learn, then, Steven, the first lesson: TOLERANCE. Hardships may be your lot until you gain the vision of the necessity or purpose of SPIRITUAL expressions in your relationships with other people. In Mars is found inclinations for there to be differences of opinion with others, as well as for your own personal purposes or desires to be magnified at times, rather than seeking the common level upon which cooperation may be had with other people.

As you seek more and more for a greater knowledge of those things that govern your purposes, or your desires and wishes from the spiritual angle for the experiences of others, more and more will your abilities incline towards those of a successful leader.

Your Moon is in an inharmonious aspect with Saturn.

The Moon reflects your subconscious urges and emotions from past lives. Your soul journey in the Saturn dimension between lives probably involved a very profound change which involved a basic reprogramming of your emotional drives. One result of this experience is that you may be challenging yourself this lifetime with opportunities to meet and successfully grow through troublesome conditions between groups, as well as political and foreign affairs. However, Steven, when you meet these situations in your quiet manner, you will probably turn them to your advantage, especially as regards your financial affairs.

It may also be said that as a mediator you are able to build upon the failures of others where there is the expression of doubt or fear on their part. In other words, where others have failed in communicating or making the right connection with each other, owing to some cross or error over which there has been dissension or discussion, you can take this challenge and build upon it. This may often bring into your experience very satisfying conditions. Yet you may constantly be changing in your relationship to groups, sometimes becoming very close, and at other times much further apart.

Do try to refrain from making or drawing comparisons between you and others, thereby belittling yourself. Your inclination to do this will not become a stumblingstone if you hold to the ideal that he who would be the greatest among his associates will be the servant of all, a helpful force in his experience in every way. Moreover, Steven, it is better to be "had" by all than ever taking advantage of any.

Therefore, in your prayer and meditation periods, seek help from the Creative Forces for guidance as to how you may better express your feelings. You might pray for forgiveness to come to those who have inhibited you in the past. By so doing, you may free yourself to be more affectionate, expressive and less inhibited in your own feelings in the present. You will then love more freely, feel more joy in living and be more free to give to others!

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, Steven, 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, Steven, 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.

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, Steven, 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, Steven, 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, Steven, 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.

Your Venus is conjoined with Jupiter.

In many ways, representing a merging of the two most benevolent planetary influences -- Jupiter and Venus -- their conjunction at the time of your birth is the most, auspicious fortunate astrological aspect possible. Drawing into the past, from your likely Jupiterian sojourn between incarnations you are likely to be one of "Jupiter's children". That is, Steven, you probably have had at least one lifetime when you were in a high position to be a positive influence on many souls.

Looking toward the future, your chances are good--better than most-- that with will's application you can achieve what the Brahmin priestly astrologers of India call Moksha, or liberation from the rebirth cycle. While you may not need to reincarnate again, you may nonetheless choose to return once more to help your soul brothers and sisters find their way back.

Your experience in the consciousness environment of Venus inclines you to have close friendships throughout your experience. Not only is this expressed as a great love for your fellow man but one which makes for the tie that really binds: a spiritual love rather than just a romantic or fleshly bond. Hence kindred souls in all walks of life are attracted to you as a help meet in their struggles.

Your Jupiter and Venus experiences give you a love of nature and an appreciation of beauty in its most profound sense. You also have considerable abilities in teaching, writing and counseling. You could prepare data, dream and self-analysis journals, chants, color charts and mandalas for constructive use by individuals and meditation groups, for instance. Combining music, singing and rhythmical movement to fields like depth psychology and spiritual counseling, you could be a light on a hill for many who grope in darkness. You may find great power in the instruction and help you can lend to others seeking knowledge which makes for a more universality of thought along spiritual lines.

Your high abilities are rooted in past lives where you gave of yourself continually. You may have been a king or queen, or closely associated with religious leaders, say during New England witchhunt days or New Testament times, with Moses' family after the Exodus or reaching perhaps your greatest soul development as an Atlantean priest or priestess.


Your positivity and enthusiasm are likely to you bring tendencies toward extravagance and you may at times border on restlessness, stubbornness and overindulgence. Otherwise, Steven, tolerance and patience are all that you need to work on for your more complete soul development. Used correctly your abilities may well make for experiences whereby you will be considered blessed -- not just "lucky", although inheritances and large earning potentials are your lot as well -- for many are likely to be influenced by your activities this lifetime.

In summary, you are inclined to do good to others, always preferring others before yourself. You should have a high ennobling influence on people's lives and dislike any petty, small or mean remarks or disputes. In giving others -- as well as yourself -- the opportunity to discover and express their individuality, you will go far in giving them the opportunity of expressing brotherly or spiritual love and oneness.

Your Saturn is in a harmonious pattern with 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, Steven, 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, Steven, 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.



             Your Sun is in Sagittarius (Tropical zodiac).

Great expanses of space, including the seemingly endless expanse of oceans, are likely to call to you, Steven, 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 Moon 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, Steven, 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, Steven, 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.


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 Reading 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 Sagittarius Decanate

Your sidereal Sun 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.

           Your Moon is in Aquarius Decanate

Your sidereal Moon is in the decanate of Aquarius, which is co-ruled by Uranus and Saturn.

This makes the cultivation and consistent application of guiding ideals of potentially great value for you this go 'round.
