Ry Redd’s Cayce Past Life Report for
June 14, 1946
New York, New York
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 conjoined with Uranus.
It is very probable that you experienced the Uranian dimension between earth lives. Almost certainly the most influential of the latter was your lifetime in ancient Atlantis. Combined with your soul sojourn in Uranus, the unusual in all forms — especially entertainments such as sci-fi and science fantasy — are likely to be of special interest to you.
An extremist at times, you are exceptional, eccentric, peculiar to others and last but definitely not least, a classic Atlantean and Aquarian Age individualist. Being strong-minded to the point of too much self-sufficiency at times is also a description which applies to you.
These characteristics are all real efficiencies. With your extremist nature, they are genuinely valuable, unique qualities which you can use for weal or woe this go ’round.
Know your ideal, letting your purposes and dealings with others always be creative and constructive (for we are ever meeting ourselves: what goes out comes back). The main purpose for our manifesting in the earth is for the glorification of God and not just for free thinking and individualism, though we each manifest according to our own purpose.
In past lives, you probably were devoted to the cause of freedom, whether an American pioneer or leader in women’s rights like the American suffragettes in the nineteenth century, or involved in such religious freedom movements as the early Christian Church’s struggles in Rome or being instrumental in behalf of the native uprisings when the Atlanteans overran ancient Egypt.
Your strong interest in the psychic and esoteric is such that you yourself are likely to be clairvoyant. In the years to come, if you parallel the natural development of your higher psi faculties with studies of parapsychology, psychological astrology and mystical traditions, you will become more and more attuned.
These advancements are encouraged provided they are used for giving help, understanding and knowledge to others rather than for self-glorification. If used for the latter, your psychic abilities would become a stumbling block not only to yourself but also to many others who seek your counsel. [934-1, 3948-1, 1742-2, 2487-1, 487-1]
Your Sun is trine Jupiter.
Upon entering the earth plane this lifetime, you came under the positive influence of Jupiter, from your experience in that ennobling realm between lifetimes. You are likely, then, to be attractive in appearance and to have a disposition which leads you naturally to make friends while being slow to anger. Yet when anger does take hold, you are mad all the way through, and are very adept at expressing how you really feel.
Your greater success and soul development in the present will probably come through opportunities to be associated with a lot of people, especially in the business world. Meeting a lot of individuals and making friends with many of them, together with your nobility of purpose, will offer you the way through which you will reach the maximum overall spiritual growth this lifetime.
You also love learning and knowledge for their use in bettering conditions for yourself as well as others. The strongest force for good will come, however, through keeping yourself attuned to the divine within through meditation, prayer and other experiences of spirituality which will be yours. Yet in service for others will the greatest blessings come. So stay physically, mentally and spiritually fit so as to serve the more.
Bear in mind too that you have high potentials for leadership, being naturally interested in social and political matters, like who is “in” and who is “out” in terms of influence on a variety of different levels. You are also given to successful dealings with groups, including special potentials for public speaking. In fact, you should be able rather easily to move others through your sincerity and the basic impulse of your audience. That is, you can influence others from their immediate “gut” response to how well you know and how strongly you feel about your subject. [641-1]
Your Sun harmoniously aspects Mars.
You are easygoing in your temperament, but once aroused to anger you can rise as high as your quietness had formerly held you back. You also have considerable vitality which is well to be directed toward nature, especially through energetic, outdoor activities.
Farming and gardening are likely to be especially rewarding, as well as research along agricultural and horticultural lines. Providing food and shelter for individuals that have to do with their health, activity and energy are natural drives, particularly in things pertaining to daily life home conveniences.
It is likely that you lived in America during its early frontier days, when many of these talents were developed out of necessity. Also related to this prior lifetime is your powerful physical determination, especially in competition: you simply do not allow yourself to be defeated by others.
Colloquially expressed, you have “get up and go”, or better, “true grit”. You have a very distinct vim or vigor in your self-determination to follow the right course of action.
However, this may at times be expressed too aggressively, which may separate you at least intellectually, mentally or communicatively from many of your associates and relations. This is a feature of your personality this lifetime that can either be constructive or destructive. Hence be sure to avoid going too far with your very active, determined drive toward self-expression. [2322-2, 1226-1]
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 Mars.
The ever-emotional Moon points most directly to past lives where you experienced karmic emotions, including lower Mars-ruled passions. These emotions have been tempered and moderated during your previous lives. This prior resolution of your passionate animal side is carried over for your constructive use in relating to others on a personal level in the present. Therefore, regardless of your sex it makes for good relationships with women.
Past life indicators include a recent lifetime in America’s pioneer days and an earlier incarnation involved with the Roman Empire. These likely experiences give you a great deal of courage.
Also, from your previous lives and your soul journeys in the Mars sphere of consciousness between lives, your subconscious feelings are in basic harmony with your expressions of energy. Positive influences of this resourceful aspect incline you not only to be courageous, but also energetic and healthy, with excellent recuperative powers and an overall strong vitality.
Your Moon is opposite Sun.
You chose a birth time near the full Moon when the Greater and Lesser Lights, the Sun and Moon, were opposite each other in the zodiac. 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. These two all-important Luminaries are in a pattern which sets before you challenges to meet from your past lives.
These obstacles arise from your previous sojourns IN celestial environments, rather than because of any position of this or that planet, or phase of the Moon or this or that season of the Sun’s influence upon the earth, or upon the terrestrial environment.
Making for innate expressions which manifest in your true thoughts and purposes (found as deep inner desires when you turn within), these obstacles center on a basic conflict between your will, personality and emotions. These challenges are 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.
Or, the disharmony between your subconscious and outer personality could be tied to a disharmony between your parents at the time of your conception. This inner disharmony would result in your inclination to be in challenging situations of trying to join with the outer world, particularly relationships such as marriage. The same lack of harmony probably manifests in your physical energy levels and your motivation, which go from to high to low.
Again, observe yourself closely, determine your own unique rhythm and then adjust yourself to it with determination. Once you learn your most opportune times, do what you have to do during those energy-motivation peaks, then rest, relax and center yourself until the peak returns. Here you will be acting on behalf of your own best interests, thereby being your own best friend.
As a remedial measure to help redirect your soul forces toward greater growth and attunement let your affirmation or prayer go something like, “Because my attitudes are often not in harmony with my emotions, I will learn to better coordinate these two sides of my nature. To better align my inner feelings with my outer approach to life, I will avoid letting my head or heart govern my behavior. Instead, both will work together cooperatively to form a child of God who is at peace with self and others.” [852-12]
Your Moon is in an inharmonious pattern with Uranus.
Uranus is the Atlantean planet, the dimension of originality and extremes, and the Moon is our “way station” between planetary sojourns. As such, the Moon is our reservoir of past life emotion and karma. You chose a birth time when your afterlife soul experiences in the Moon and Uranus dimensions were in conflict through the difficult aspect pattern between them. This challenging aspect calls forth from your akashic chronicle challenges to face in your emotional life. The most likely original roots of this emotional karma lies in a long-ago lifetime in Atlantis.
Having an intense, strong-willed, independent personality, you are likely to be drawn between experiences that are extreme. Hence there have probably been periods in your life when financial or material things could be described as having been very good and very bad, very pleasing yet very often sad. You may often be ruled by judgments concerning financial matters, yet there are other times when such judgments appear not to matter at all.
In other words, you may often be financially preoccupied, yet allow generosity toward your friends and family to override rational decision making. There may be, then, an instability at times, when you are motivated by sentiment or friendship without even the appearance of reason.
Because of these tendencies, it will be very important for you to set your personal spiritual goals and ideals regarding your relationships, then stick to them. Your choice of companions throughout your life will be as critical as your choice of ideals to help you stay on the right track.
First study yourself inwardly, through prayer, meditation and dream work. Know your motives; that is, what are the real reasons which prompt you to do the things you do with your fellow man. If they are selfish motives and are not prompted by the desire to be a better channel, a better expression of the Creative Forces through your own relationships or activities with others, know that they must eventually bring confusion in your life.
You might use self-suggestion via auto-hypnosis and guided imagery. This may help you to be more centered and spiritually attuned. Try to combine these exercises with prayer and affirmations which assist you in turning within for guidance, rather than relying entirely on your own independence and willfulness. Above all, pray for the resolve to be consistent in applying your ideals as set in the Christ. Prayerful study and contemplation of Jesus’ promises in chapters 14-17 of Saint John’s Gospel would be a priceless resource. [1175-1]
Your Mercury is in an inharmonious pattern with Neptune.
Just before your birth, your experience in the spiritual realm of Neptune was challenged through your choice to make a soul flight stopover in the Mercury dimension. This last minute mental wandering from the dimension of spirituality may be your doing and undoing in the present. For, you have built about yourself through your past lives and your sojourns in the heavenly spheres great thoughts, visions and ideals.
However, due to circumstances probably connected with your relatives and your choice of associates, you have continually found yourself just beyond carrying out these high imaginative forces and ideals. This challenge to your self-confidence can be met directly through self-controlled action on your part. By applying sheer will power and adhering closely to the ideals you envision, you will be able to channel these higher spiritual elements as few may.
One beneficial process in this application of your will is your learning the value of spirituality (how not to take it for granted, for instance). Another result is likely to be the restoring of faith in yourself and your fellow man.
You mind is influenced by many varying intuitions which affect your ability to concentrate and focus your attention. Therefore, your development or retardment this lifetime will depend to a large degree on the application of your will regarding ideals. For instance, your sensitivity to environmental conditions is very great. Surrounding influences which you intuitively absorb will always have a lot to do with the thought trends you take and the way you apply your abilities.
In other words, you are almost mystically hypersensitive to your surroundings. You pick up negative thoughts of others and outside situations and are influenced by them. Thus it is necessary that you set high ideals of discernment, discrimination and honesty. Otherwise, your dreaming could become little more than scheming and your receptivity may become deceptive. The reason this is emphasized is because you are very easily influenced by others.
There is also the likelihood of an impractical, visionary and –literally — “spaced-out” quality to your thinking. Often as not your ideas will be very imaginative and involve such notions for instance as travel over wide expanses of space or water, rather unusual music from the sounds of nature and the mystical beliefs of many different cultures. The latter gives you considerable spiritual insight and tolerance for all religions.
You are easily able to keep secrets, even to the point of having a “poker face” while doing so. Care must be taken, however, that your secret-keeping quality does not become secretiveness and cunning to the advantage of others.
A gemstone which would have a helpful, elemental influence on you if carried or worn is the white crystal. Such a crystal would be more than just a good luck charm: its vibrations are needed as a positive influence and should be kept close to the body. [1738-1, 2285-1, 2533-1, 2498-1]
Your Venus is conjoined with Saturn.
Saturn brings many changes, some of them traumatic ones at times. At other times, Saturn brings steps toward greater responsibility and maturity. As to which of these alternative courses prevails, it depends on how you may have failed to apply your will in the past as well as how constructively you apply your free will in the present. For instance, friendships may often be stronger ties for you than business or family relationships, yet you probably have lost them when you didn’t want to and couldn’t get rid of some when you wanted to!
While you are reserved for the most part in your outward expression of feelings, you are still very emotional in nature, with a tendency to seek satisfaction of your Venusian love urges in a calculating, self-gratifying sort of way. You are also very determined, with the ability physically and mentally to carry forward to completion almost any undertaking. You will consistently find — as you have experienced more than once –that to have a habit of being more optimistic than the occasion seems to warrant will help you a great deal in making life more worth living, more enjoyable and worthwhile.
Your influence among other people has counted for them far more than you have ever given yourself credit for. Your love of the home and family life may have been misinterpreted and misunderstood by some of these same individuals. You may pray at times that you no longer feel so restricted by your obligations in these relationships, or at least that you can more cheerfully accept these responsibilities as spiritual blessings to strengthen your patience. Such experiences and duties have probably left you feeling as though you are not appreciated or loved. You also may be attracting people to you from past lives who cause you to suffer due to their selfishness. This in turn is likely to have inhibited your emotionally, making you very cautious about expressing your affections.
You may quite successfully redirect your creative energies in the direction of your career, becoming highly skilled in sales, management, executive secretarial positions, or in commercial art and advertising. The business world would be a good outlet for your parsimonious, responsible efficiency in money matters (traditionally Saturn contracts finances as well as love, money and affection, all of which are ruled by Venus).
Another type of work which would well channel your caring and organizing abilities is that of supervising healing/nurturing related endeavors such as practical nursing, home health care, natural preventive medicine and involvement with exercise centers or spas. [904-1, 2329-1, 1522-1]
Your 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, religious-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]
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 Gemini (Tropical zodiac).
Coming as you do under the double sign of Gemini, there are likely to be two natures within you as far as your inner, subconscious urges are concerned. One of these urges is to seek to know (and this thirst for knowledge may sometimes involve questionable things or conditions, at least as far as others are concerned). The other part of this dual urge from Gemini’s influence is your innate as well as outwardly manifested spiritual seeking for a greater, better and more perfect relationship with another. At times these two urges may be more in conflict than most people ordinarily experience.
Also, as in other in Gemini children this tendency toward double-mindedness at times may find expression in inclinations to change your mind and overspeculate about things. With application of your will, these inclinations can be curbed.
Now, you were probably part of European culture during the Middle Ages, when there was considerable action and adventure, for example in the continual feuding and strife among the many fiefdoms, families, tribes, castles and kingdoms comprising Europe before its present consolidation into several nation-states.
You may even have been among the gentry or upper class of France or England, attending or participating in jousting tournaments, making long journeys to the Crusades against the Muslims in Palestine, or involved with trade exchanges with the caravans going to and from India and China.
In other words, because Mercury is the planet which rules or symbolizes the essence of Gemini, overall you may have experienced in one or more of these lifetimes a sense of restlessness enduring into your present life.
Finally, centuries or even millennia earlier, you may have led a life in what has become known as Australia or on one of its neighboring South Pacific islands. [674-3, 962-1]
Your Moon is in Sagittarius (Tropical zodiac).
Great expanses of space, including the seemingly endless expanse of oceans, are likely to call to you, and in them you probably find some of your most quieting and comforting experiences. In your past lives, then, under circumstances when great expanses and very broad spaces brought you the most insightful and contemplative experiences of your mental being, it was then that spiritually you probably gained the most.
For example, traveling long ago as a Spanish, English or even Japanese settler, pioneer or explorer, you may have crossed the oceans in search of a better world. You were then part of a strong sea-faring culture which frequently set out –over a period of many centuries — to explore, invade and often defeat enemies and cultures usually much greater in strength and size.
Jupiter is the planet which rules or symbolizes the heart of Sagittarian energies, supplying you with a broadly courageous — though at times daredevil — quality. Yet underneath this often exciting exterior lies a calm but calculating mind. Another characteristic experience is one or more past lives involving a lot of movement, change and separation from your family and your cultural roots.
In your deeper meditations you might recall urges and impressions of migrating at the time of the Deluge of Atlantis (commonly called the Great Flood), to other, safer lands to begin a new life and a new age of history.
Your more intimate, personal relationships often may not be as harmonious as you would really like for them to be. This challenge is rooted in past lives when, as in the present, you were somewhat inclined to prefer partnerships capable of enduring considerably different interests through a great deal of diverse activity. [1740-1]
Your Sun is in Taurus (Sidereal 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 Scorpio (Sidereal 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 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 Capricorn Decanate
Your sidereal Sun is in the decanate of Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is the all-important realm to which the soul casts itself for purging and cleansing. Your likely sojourn between earth lives in Saturn’s realm points to a major experience of soul reprogramming and self-purification. This brings into your present the essential of a “fresh start” lifetime.
Therefore, armed with self-discipline and excellent organizational and management skills, you will have special opportunities for spiritual progress through the mature way in which you face heavy changes and responsibilities. Also, an early death in one or more prior lives, especially in childhood (or perhaps even through suicide), is indicated.
Your Moon is in Cancer Decanate
Your sidereal Moon is in the decanate of CANCER, which is ruled by the Moon. Moon as Past Life Planet points to your immediately previous lifetime as contributing so powerfully to your emotional makeup and mental urges this lifetime that it overrides a great deal of astrology’s influence. In other words, your karmic drives and emotions are likely to be more influential than the more subtle, mental astrological urges from your interlife sojourns in the planetary heavens.
Being a karmic Moonchild, then, you are especially sensitive to the feelings of others. And from strong past life links, your mother (this lifetime) exerts a dominant influence. Also, it is probable that experiences during your immediately previous incarnation exerts a stronger influence on your emotional makeup and interests than influences from other lifetimes before your last one.
