Astrology recognizes that we are
souls with bodies, and not just bodies with souls. As such, the birth
chart shows the “treasure chest” of past life themes and even a hint
as to the sun- sign of one’s next incarnation, which is the ruler
of the 2nd house.
“south node” of the chart and the “12th house” are indicators of
past life karma. Since we are all multidimensional, we have both good and
bad karma. Our responsibility in this life is to create good karma, not
just for future lives, but also for the privilege and self-respect of
living in a pure heart now, devoid of selfish ulterior motives.
our karma or “bachi” catches up with us in the same incarnation, but
often it returns in future lives. Geometric angles to the Ascendant or
Rising sign indicate past life influences. For example, a harmonious
120-degree angle from Venus to one’s rising would manifest as
spontaneous musical or artistic giftedness evidenced in early childhood. A
stressful 90-degree angle from Mars to the rising would indicate the need
to learn more effective means of conflict-resolution than one practiced in

are no superficial answers, since astrology only indicates potentials. The
sign Scorpio, the “8th house” and the planet Pluto govern death, but
they also indicate personal transformation, psychic gifts, sexual
relationships and money other than earned salaries, such as lottery wins
or scholarships. So no responsible astrologer should tell a client that
the soldier’s chart or family member’s chart definitely indicates only
one potential, whether favorable or not.
thousand years ago it was written in the Chinese oracle, the “I Ching” that
we should not bemoan the potential of death, but should rather focus on
living a meaningful, purposeful life, taking nothing or no one for
granted. Likewise, the great meditation masters of today also teach
that we should live each day as if it were our last, not wasting precious
time, which is our most limited commodity. Then, when it is time to
“graduate” from this incarnation, we will have no regrets.
