The Divine Life
Is it possible to ‘pinpoint’ a past life using Astrology? I think so, and A.T. Mann thought so, too. In his book’s Chapter 9, entitled “The World Age”, he postulated that one can calculate the ‘when’ of these lives by having an accurate birth chart erected, and then looking for the specific placements of the planets.
“The limits of the world age of 48,000BC and AD1950 are graded by an astrological sequence from Aries to Pisces. The same log sequence divides history as individual life, but in the reverse direction of time.”
“The intermediate dates occur at 5000 years and 500 years before AD2000, which places them at 3000BC and AD1500, equivalent to the beginning of Leo and Sagittarius.”
Using my own birth chart, I will endeavour to demonstrate how this works.
20º Aquarius 3′
This may have been my Great War life, the one I ‘remembered’ during my Hypnotherapy session. What I specifically saw was my death on the battlefield after being blown up by some sort of bomb. The birth of that life corresponds to 1892 AD.
14º Scorpio 45′
I think this could have been the Christian Rosenkreutz lifetime, as discussed in my recent blog. Scorpio is secretive and the 11th is the house of groups and fraternities. The timing of that life corresponds to 1330 AD.
24º Capricorn 12′
This one will most definitely have to do with William Blake and John Varley (and their collaboration). Mercury is the writer, and the 1st is the house of expression. The date would be about 1822-23 AD.
5º Aquarius 44′
I haven’t had the pleasure of remembering this experience yet. But the indication is of a life sometime in 1855 AD, near the end of the California Gold Rush. A search of the year yielded the information that Walt Whitman self-published “Leaves of Grass”.
10º Libra 59′
I originally thought this might be my Cathar life, but it’s too early in time. Anyway, the energy of Mars is more warlike. Two events which have significance to me happened in the year 720 AD: a stone church was built at Glastonbury Abbey; and the Muslims began a long siege of Carcassonne. Further research indicates a life as Count Roland.
15º Aquarius 45′
Again, I don’t know the life which this one might represent. The year is 1883 AD, and a lot of things happened in this year, including Karl Marx dying in London. (Again, further research found that Blavatsky and Olcott began working together to start the Theosophical Society.) It is also the year that Rudolf Steiner left university without a degree.
17º Virgo 59′
I call this life the “Roman Governor”. Whether or not it’s Pontius Pilate remains to be seen, but the timing is 10 AD, so definitely in the early part of the 1st Century. Subsequent investigation concludes that it was a Centurian of the Roman Army in Judea instead.
1º Cancer 17′
My friend Christina thinks we were part of the Atlantis ‘experiment’ which went horribly wrong. I’m not sure, but it seems entirely possible, given that the date for this placement is 6700 BC.
17º Libra 14′
Again, I’d hoped that this represented the Cathar life, but again it’s too early. The year is 862 AD and the most notable event in the West is the death of King Donald I of Scotland after a 4 year reign. In Eastern Europe, Saint Cyril and his brother do some great work with the Slavic language and a translation of the Gospels.
16º Leo 56′
There are no records which would help me decide which life I had lived in the first decade of 1600 BC. However, my friend Christina, when asked if she could come up with the name of a Greek god that might be connected to me, said that the only name she got was Homer. That was a surprise! His great poems the Iliad and the Odyssey were written between the 9th and 8th century BC (according to scholars). The Trojan War occurred in the 13th century BC, and Sinon seems to fit the bill, but then again, history has a way of telescoping events into a single narrative.
10º Aries 2′
This date corresponds to 39270 BC. Could this be when I incarnated for the first time? Perhaps. It also represents the last time, too. It is the Alpha/Omega point of my life.
18º Sagittarius 51′
39270 BC – North Node
6700 BC – Uranus
1600 BC – Pluto
10 AD – Saturn
720 AD – Mars
862 AD – Neptune
1330 AD – The Moon
1650 AD – Ascendant
1822 AD – Mercury
1855 AD – Venus
1883 AD – Jupiter
1892 AD – The Sun
After connecting with most of my “past lives”, I would like to explain something intrinsic: The energy of the times is symbolized by at least one ‘hero’. In my case, the overarching energy is that of a “Warrior”. I’ve been through a few battles, that’s for sure.
In the times past, especially the ones closer to the present time, there seems to be a doubling or trebling of incarnations. It seems entirely feasible that one’s spirit can inhabit more than one life at any one time. This may have been explained better in Jane Robert’s “The Education of Oversoul Seven”. The people from the past seem to be whispering in my ear: ‘Look here, look here.’
Whatever this Divine Life is actually about, I am always being exhorted to:
