Welcome to your Past Life report. Whereas the birthchart is a symbolic road map describing your current life, the Past Lives chart is a blueprint of your previous incarnations. The pages that follow will help shed some light on themes related to your past life instincts. First, let's talk about reincarnation which is the belief that the current incarnation (as depicted by our birthchart) is linked to the lives that we have previously led. This collection of past influences points to particular experiences you might encounter again so that you can further your growth and fully develop your creative potential. These past impressions go far in shaping many of our current thoughts and choices. There are certain gifts a person seems to possess right out of the womb! It's as though destiny or fate leads one to realize these attributes. Of course, we still have to show ambition and make the effort in order to keep our dreams alive. This report may give confirmation to talents that you already know you have or open your eyes to ones that you have yet to discover.
Our past lives are alive and well in our consciousness. This may already be apparent to you. But on the other hand, these experiences can lie beyond the threshold of our conscious mind's awareness. What is doing the remembering, if our mind isn't? Call it your soul, higher consciousness or whatever explanation feels right to you.
Have you ever heard about karma, that great law of cause and effect? An old timeless saying sums up the whole process: "You reap what you sew." There are actions and thoughts that defined us in other lives, or have guided us to where we are in the present. They don't really exert any control over us. We have freedom of choice. That's a strong message to remember when reading this report.
Also, don't panic if you read something that says you were not a perfect person. Nobody is in the current one! Use the report as a learning tool. The idea is to keep developing and evolving. It's balancing the cosmic rhythm of past and present that presents each of us with a challenge. Do we respond positively or negatively? With hope or doubt? Many of our tendencies are linked to previous incarnations. Certain patterns have likely been by our side over many lifetimes. As we grow and expand our awareness, it becomes very possible to step beyond the trappings of past life baggage.
No doubt you will read various sections that seem to contradict each other. Each could be true about you. It's important to realize that many different dimensions of ourselves live within us. Each of us is composed of memories from so many past lives, combined with an assortment of ways we have learned to deal with reality in this life, that make us complex beings. See which descriptions ring true to you as you read through the following pages. You will notice some traits described have a repeating theme.
I hope you find this report an enjoyable ride into your past life instincts and thought patterns. They are somewhere in your consciousness. Perhaps some of what you read will strike a familiar chord. After all, these pages are all about your past life loves, creative pursuits, adventures, travels, highs and lows, over many lifetimes. Happy navigating!
Some technical explanations about the Past Life chart (if you detest technical discussions, then skip this paragraph and jump right into the report!). The Ascendant in this chart starts with the sign on the cusp of the 12th house, instead of the traditional method of using the sign on the 1st house cusp, which is the sign rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. Also, the Past Life birthchart houses are counted clockwise, rather than the conventional way of counterclockwise. In other words, since the 12th house becomes the Ascendant, the sign on the cusp of the 11th house now begins the 2nd house, etc., around the chart wheel. What is considered the Ascendant or 1st house in the traditional chart becomes the 12th in the Past Life chart. Your planets remain in the same sign placements, but now occupy different houses, in this new chart. The planets in signs are interpreted in your report from a past lives perspective.
Something interesting to consider in thinking of the houses in a clockwise direction, they are actually now moving in the same direction as the Nodes of the Moon. As you will read in the report the Moon's nodes are strong past life or karmic points in a chart. Their retrograde motion is clockwise meaning they share the same life biorhythms as the houses of the Past Life chart. By traveling backward, or clockwise, through the houses, you are being regressed back into a past life analysis. Enjoy your ride down memory filled lanes!
Node in Aries
You had a history of making a bold statement about your identity. One of your key impulses was to move with a sense of urgency. Your soul was anxious to reincarnate to get on with the work you needed to accomplish. The archetypal theme for your destiny was to be a spontaneous initiator. A crucial lesson was patience, with a capital "P". You got so self-absorbed you forgot to pay attention to others. It was difficult for you to focus long on objectives that didn't capture your attention. Discipline was something you worried about halfway into a project.
You needed to have a me-focus when you gave too much of yourself away to others. A trickster was excessively trying to be a crowd-pleaser. This caused you to get lost in indecision. Finding a way to balance the scales of me versus them was vital to your happiness. Partnerships played a major role in your incarnations. When you fell in love, it made you feel alive. Your adrenaline poured through you forcefully, making you want to be a doer. But when you were unhappy in love, or got rejected, you became confused. It was then that you had to muster the courage to walk forward. Actions with deeper awareness illuminated your life directions and pointed the way to harmony.
Node in 8th house
What types of activities did you participate in that furthered your soul growth? Delving into the mysteries of life with a detective-like presence was a preoccupation. You weren't afraid to walk along the narrow ledges, if that's where the intensity could be found. If you became too bogged down in hoarding what you saved, life had a way of disrupting your pleasure. A common concern was "how can I reach full empowerment?" When you followed your passion to achieve wealth or dynamic relationships with common sense you managed to stay out of karma's way. What sorts of experiences motivated you? There was being a shrewd businessperson. Negotiation savvy adorned you. Plumbing to the depths of your main interests came naturally. Even mysticism called to you. Your energy levels peaked when finding either the lover or profession of your most cherished dream. If you became too possessive or jealous, you created more trouble than it was worth. When you assumed the appropriate power it kept you on track as much as compulsively overpowering others caused endless trouble. Somewhere always hiding in the caverns of your memory banks was a survival instinct mixed with a tinge of a longing to keep life very simple. When using this wisely and pragmatically, life was colored with a rich array of abundant experiences.
Sun: Creativity, Ego, Self-expression
Sun in Virgo:

Worrying didn't guarantee the job would get done any better.
The cosmic principle at work through many of your past incarnations was to rely on the steadiness of left brain logic. When you allowed your intuitive right brain equal playing time everyday life had a lively lubricant. Your mind grew dulled by the heaviness of work and responsibility when there was no leisure. You often worked circles around your contemporaries. You found ego strength when honing your skills. When you didn't let criticism curtail your ambition, an inner confidence blossomed.

When you tried to hold onto those you loved too possessively they pulled away. When dependency needs were balanced, you were more content.

The more hard or intense aspects are the conjunction (0 degrees), square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees). They required your best understanding in past lives. Planets that are part of an intense aspect you will notice often indicate lessons that must be learned, and follow us from one incarnation into another until we get them in balance. These higher voltage aspects don't mean the planets operated negatively, only that there was much more force behind them. "Soft" does not mean good and "intense" does not imply bad. It is often the more intense aspects that deepen our soul growth, that is, if we learn how to use their power wisely. If we don't it's like taking one step forward and three back.
It might be helpful to keep some keywords in mind for the aspects. The sextile represents Excitation and Eagerness. The planets in this aspect give clues as to how their energies worked in a stimulating way through you. The trine is a special Harmony. The two planets involved show you were confident of their interacting energies. The conjunction is where two planets are joined at the hip. There is a Fusion or powerful blending of these energies. The square can reveal where you encountered Friction. Pay special attention to these aspects in particular because they denote themes that are strong past patterns. Squares ask us to resolve their conflict by finding creative outlets. The opposition requires a Balancing act. It is similar to a seesaw. Gaining objective awareness about each planet is a key. Remember, it was usually the most intense aspects that stretched you the most in past lives.

You did fight to preserve the truths that made you feel truly alive.
