We do not have to believe in reincarnation to benefit from this post or weblog. We only have to agree that present actions have effects in the future. What we call our past history was once the future that was caused by previous “present” actions.
The popular view is that the placement of our planets in our natal chart “causes” our behaviour. I have long believed that it’s the other way around: our actions from past lives create the placement of our planets. In other words, our natal chart in this lifetime reveals our “karmic package” brought from the past.
John Heisler, a physician with a practice in Schubenacadie, Nova Scotia, expressed this view in an article called “A Comparison of Western and Vedic Astrology, ” in a newsletter called Banner, Vol VII, No. 2, April 1994.
The position of the stars and planets do not cause illness in our body or changes in our state of mind, rather they reflect our own karmic patterning, whether it is group or individual karma.
Are you an astrologer? After reviewing the charts below, you might like to present a natal chart of the person living today who is the incarnation of these three historical figures. What kind of life would that person be living today? What would be the sex of that person? How would their karma manifest in the present incarnation’s life in terms of career, money, children, relationships etc.?
Below the natal charts, there is a table that lists the planets and houses of each figure for purposes of comparison. When certain causes and conditions come together or meet, simultaneously, our karmic seeds ripen. Another way to put this is that Cleopatra “ripened” into St. Teresa of Avila “ripened” into Sigmund Freud. Students of astrology might find it interesting to see a comparison of the natal charts of Cleopatra, St. Teresa of Avila, and Sigmund Freud (who we are using as our demos on this site) to track what karma they were carrying from lifetime-to-lifetime, and how this karma manifested.
Cleopatra’s chart below is by Noel Tyl.
The source for St. Teresa’s chart below is Stephen Erlewine.
Sigmund Freud’s chart below is in The Circle Book of Charts. (Sigmund Freud; May 06, 1856; 18h30; Freiberg, Moravia)
|Planet||Cleopatra||St. Teresa||Sigmund Freud|
|Ascendant||Scorpio||Cusp 1st||Pisces||Cusp 1st||Scorpio||Cusp 1st|
|Midheaven||Leo||Cusp 10th||Sagittarius||Cusp 10th||Leo||Cusp 10th|
