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 as interpreted through the Edgar Cayce readings for individuals with your very same planetary positions at birth. For the benefit of students of astrology, these positions, along with other technical information, are listed below:
Sun position is 3 deg. 20 min. of Virgo

Your Cayce Past Life Report begins on the following page . . .
Your Sun harmoniously aspects Saturn.
From several past lives you have developed a powerful drive to succeed through trying fresh angles, making new beginnings. Your endurance and persistence come in part from your resourceful capacity to rub out the past and begin over again. In other words, you have considerable capacity for endurance of changes in this life experience. Your personal relationships often serve as a means for getting you into situations you ultimately need for your development.
For example, you have the uncanny yet practical know-how for developing relationships in which you can better serve the needs of a specific environment, institution, or organization. Further, you are able to change your associations and surroundings toward more efficient activity without running away from your home and family responsibilities. With your close friends, you are very direct and are known for your honesty and integrity. You have the innate ability to be of service to a great many people, by helping them make connections in a wide variety of endeavors.
Know that the most important experience you can have is to know what IS your ideal spiritually. Once the ideal is set, if you then entrust your purposes to such an ideal, you will find guidance and support when doubts and conflicts arise. With an ideal that can relate to all aspects of your life -- physically and mentally, as well as spiritually -- you can surely become a leader in your chosen vocation. Indeed, your past lives karmically exert a benevolent influence in your natural inclinations for success in your career, especially through travel and the people you contact through travel.
Regarding your career, you have special talent in management, sales and handling large sums of money as, say, treasurer, financial secretary, budget officer, or accountant for a large organization. You have probably experienced past life patterns of involvement with trading or banking families like the Astors in early New York, or as a lender-treasurer in ancient Persia, or as the quartermaster during even earlier rebellions in prehistoric Egypt.
In addition, you are one who enables others to see themselves in a light that they have not yet seen. But your abilities run more to that of a career as a leader or manager, or as one who will be a force behind leaders and executives. In this way may you excel or exceed the most in the present, both for your own soul development and for the service or aid which you may provide for others. [1916-5, 1213-1]
Your Moon harmoniously aspects Mercury.
Your strong mental urges and high intellectual abilities in virtually any direction you choose arise from your afterlife soul journeys, that is, the activities of your superconscious when absent from the material, earth plane.
Now, at the time of your birth there was a particularly favorable pattern between the Moon, mirror of karmic emotion from past lives and Mercury, heavenly realm of the mental. This carries into your present life from your previous one a great deal of harmony between your mind and emotions.
For instance, in a prior incarnation, perhaps in your immediately previous life, you may have been, or at least closely related to, an important public figure. During that lifetime your communication and basic social skills were highly developed, perhaps out of necessity.
Moreover, you read from the resourceful side of your akashic ledger at the time of your soul's earth reentry at birth. This brought back to you from your previous life a basic integration and natural coworking of your feeling and thought processes.
Your mental-emotional harmony together with your powerful intellect gives you an extraordinary capacity to communicate your ideas to others, whether privately one-on-one or publicly before a large audience. These communication skills, together with your alert mind, interesting conversation and sharpness of perception, all combine to make you a natural teacher and writer, especially in training the minds of the young and in carrying out a personal mission to deliver a specific message.
Perhaps worded in your own way, let your prayer be something like, "Lord, I am grateful for the ability to respond to others with genuine, loving concern. You have given me the willingness to lend a sympathetic ear, and the moving stories I hear prompt me to help people in need. Also, Lord, I am grateful for a good memory, and for the skill to communicate my thoughts and feelings effectively. With these gifts, may I spread Your message of love to those who yearn for hope and understanding." [3948-1, 2459-1, 140-3]
Your Moon is in an inharmonious square pattern with the Sun.
You chose a birthtime when the Greater and Lesser Lights, the Sun and Moon, were adversely aspecting each other. Now, 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. At your birth these two all-important Luminaries were squared off with one another in the zodiac. This set before you challenges to meet from your past lives. And your material or physical experiences emotionally may become the greater urges at times. Yet the innate and deeper urge, from your past life experience with what you have set as your guiding ideal become more impelling in your quieter moments (in meditation and just being still).
Most of the obstacles you face center on a basic conflict between your will, personality and emotions, which is 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. "When I examine my attitudes, Lord, I sometimes find that they are not in harmony with my actions. Teach me how I may better coordinate these two sides of my nature, how I may align my inner feelings with my outer approach to life. Do not let either my heart or my head govern my behavior, Lord. May they both work together cooperatively, forming a personality that is at peace with itself and with others." [3188-1]
Your Venus inharmoniously aspects Saturn.
You have chosen, through this aspect, perhaps your greatest challenge for achieving either great healing or great hurt!
By choosing a time of birth when these two planets were in an inharmonious pattern with each other in the zodiac, you brought with you into this experience the challenging sides of your betweenlife experiences in Venus, realm of creativity, beauty and love, and Saturn, the dimension of deep change, self-purging and remolding. Because your soul flight paths from Venus and Saturn were thus at odds with each other, as a soul re-entering the earth plane, you read from and have since acted upon the debit side of your spiritual record.
In other words, you are inclined to attract associations from previous lives which are the karmic source of relationship challenges you face this lifetime as well as difficulties in loving and appreciating yourself. These past disappointments in love and disillusionment with marriage are being brought back to you for a proper hearing and, hopefully, a permanent healing.
Since self-healing must be preceded by self-knowledge, recognize your tendency toward separateness and self-centeredness, both of which hurt those you love and those who would love you, were you to let them. As you get older, loneliness and related personal limitations may set in, including problems with finances (Venus rules both love and money). Ironically, in spite of your apparent self-sufficiency, you must face and overcome the difficulty of standing up alone in the world, of being truly independent emotionally.
Your soul journeys in the spheres of Venus and Saturn between death and rebirth inclines you to hold yourself aloof from other people, their thoughts and their opinions, because what suits you is usually quite self-sufficient. What relationships you have tend to be rather intense, unless you balance yourself through spiritualizing your emotions.
You are doubtful at times of the sincerity of others who try to proclaim their affections for you or who try to get close to you. At other times, this intensity may manifest as jealousy when there is reason to suspect infidelity. Remember that, while all love is lawful, not all expressions of love are expedient (for example, tolerating or encouraging adultery are not supportive of soul growth, regardless of who is the "adulterer" and who the "adulteree").
While at times you have rather striking tendencies toward extravagance, few souls are better bargain hunters! Such parsimonious behavior can be excessive, whether in companionship, in business or in any activity.
All these qualities open up a distinct opportunity for sharing the many talents with which you are endowed, to be applied as you see fit. You can accomplish a great deal through the candid yet right use of words, preferably accompanied with music -- whether in writing, teaching, counseling, lecturing or singing -- providing what you say is uplifting and not just what people want to hear. As a private pursuit and attunement aid giving expression to the beautiful emotions, playing music would be good for you, too. Especially valuable would be any stringed-type instruments such as the piano, harpsichord, harp, mandolin, guitar or violin.
You are also probably good in accounting, accumulating facts and figures, whether in finances or in creative fancy. You would do well in commercial art and advertising, ornamental and industrial arts, computer or video graphics, designing logos and the like. Furthermore, whatever the career you build, work WITH a companion rather than just BEING a companion.
Whether through words, music or art, you will find your greatest soul development in leading others into the spiritual insight or recognition of their true self worth. To express love in your actions to others -- whether individuals, one on one, or in small groups -- is the greater service a soul can give in this earthly experience. You can best show them the way to the greater Light through your own personal example -- through love. This you can do by FORCING your will to an inner understanding both of your own worth and of the higher spiritual forces being exercised on your behalf in the present.
Such growth is not likely to be easy, for your behavior is not always consistent. For instance, especially when you are alone, not working, or otherwise inactive, you may get discouraged and in such "down" periods condemn yourself. At the same time, you may tend to JUSTIFY your manner of thinking because of what others have done or have failed to do. Remember that condemning yourself is as erroneous as condemning others. The greater need is to exert your will in favor of your urges for the beautiful and your ability to see the best in everyone.
Put into your own words, let your prayer or affirmation be something like, "I will be protected from loneliness. I will be shown through my dreams and other ways how to devote more of myself to others, so that I may establish closer personal bonds. In dedicating myself to service for others, I will bear this commitment for the sake of learning how to genuinely care for others and will be taught how to give and share joyfully with my loved ones." [2725-1, 1204-3, 2497-1, 1632-3]
Your Venus is in a harmonious (sextile) aspect with Jupiter.
After the Sun, Venus and Jupiter are the two most benevolent planetary dimensions to have experienced between earth lives. As the sextile (hexagonal, snowflake) pattern is one of the two most beneficial aspects to have between these positive planets at the time of birth, then you can begin to see how fortunate is this aspect at the time of your birth. Optimism, faithfulness and generosity of spirit are among many virtues which are yours.
This very favorable pattern also makes for a nobility of purpose, large, expansive experiences and binding friendships and relationships with many individuals. Your prosperity in money matters comes from the magnetic pulling power of your positive, affable, optimistic outlook.
Your interlife experience in the realm of Jupiter especially brings you an ennobling, forceful strength while your Venus experience brings love, sympathy and patience. Combined, this makes you high minded and noble in your dealings with others.
Appreciating sincerity in every form, you particularly disapprove of pettiness in anyone. Your dislike of littleness and opportunism in others may be a carryover from a previous incarnation, say during ancient Greece and Rome, when you held a high position as a cultural or spiritual leader.
The higher mysteries of love and the influence of love on others means a great deal to you, as does music, songs, rhythm and rhyme.
You have a natural inclination toward justice, meting out to others what you would require of yourself. This innate tendency is likely to include the ability to distinguish between what is right, of what is within the spirit of the law, and what is law- sensuous, or licentious.
Probably derived from a past lifetime as a counselor or judge, others who may have known you then may come to you --again -- for advice. The ideals from your experience in Jupiter, together with the Venusian tendency for sympathetic, compassionate reactions, make for a sense of justice with mercy. This is especially so in social situations and your involvement with groups of people. [2886-1, 1188-2, 478-1, 833-1, 1891-1, 3209-2, 1897-1, 2118-1, 1458-1, 1700-1]
Your Uranus is in an inharmonious pattern with Neptune.
Because Uranus and Neptune are farthest from the Sun, they move very slowly. As a result the aspect patterns formed between them operate for a longer time than aspects between other planets. Therefore many souls made their flight from these realms to begin a new earth life when this challenging aspect pattern between these two planets was in effect. In entering the earth plane, then, you along with many others came when these planetary influences were adverse.
While having gained in soul development in past lives, the outcome in your present life depends entirely upon the application of your will. Your independent, at times extremist urges from Uranus and mystical intuition from Neptune give you psychic-intuitive powers which can either be destructive if used selfishly or constructive if your powers are used to serve others.
It is absolutely necessary then that you set and apply the highest possible motives and ideals of service this lifetime. If you control your inclination to go to extremes, you can go very far in soul development. When your mental forces are constructively balanced with the spiritual, growth MUST come. However, when your mind is attuned to selfish motives irrespective of others, the result MUST be destructive in the final analysis.
Moderation and balance is also needed between your emotions and your will, between feeling and logic, for the extreme tendencies from your experience in Uranus set them at cross purposes. A form of spiritual fanaticism can be one result of this lack of equilibrium, while another can be an edgy, touchy temper, with considerable nervous tension at times. This tendency to be high strung in turn may have adverse effects on your health.
Of equal importance is the need to be guided by the Christ Light in your seeking for spiritual truths. Otherwise, deceptive, perhaps disturbing, mystical or astral experiences may be the result. It is far better to rely upon the guidance of your own heart attuned to the Christ or God-consciousness within than to rely upon any spirit entities or self-proclaimed spirit guides. In these special pursuits always be sure to emphasize spirituality rather than spiritualism, service rather than self. [2799-1, 1735-2, 4415-1, 543-11]
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 needed to be interpreted in
Your Sun is in Virgo (Tropical zodiac).
As to the activities which are innate or outwardly manifested in your life, coming in the astronomical constellation of Virgo, at times you may have the appearance of being too self-sufficient in your relationships with others. Hence you may be considered somewhat eccentric, especially in your choice of associates and friendships.
There is also a likely tendency for you to approach life in a very rational way, resulting in your being considered by others as having a rather materialistic turn of mind. At the same time this also gives you the ability to train or direct the training of the minds of young people.
Long ago, one of your likely past lives was in an ideal nature setting, where you were known for your courage and for your ability to heal. From this distant lifetime you are less likely than most people to be dominated by others and you are usually inclined to carry your share of responsibilities. This experience may have been in South or Central America as a member of one of the native cultures in the Amazon forest of Brazil or the Aztec Indians of Mexico.
Mercury is the planet which rules or symbolizes the essence of the sign Virgo. Higher levels of learning and teaching, then, have been yours in these lifetimes, from successful interaction with nature to more religious pursuits like participating in the Holy Crusades to Palestine and neighboring lands. You may also have followed Alexander the Great on his history-making and Greek culture-expanding military excursions into Arabia and India. [365-3]
Your Moon 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 Sun is in Leo (Sidereal zodiac).
Leo symbolizes the consciousness wherein there is strength, creativity and virility, as well as a certain headstrong or willful nature in how you apply yourself in relationship with others.
For instance, reading biographical or historical novels about European royalty, daydreaming about the courts of Kings and Queens of modern Europe or ancient times and other grandeurs of the past may bring to your conscious mind memories of previous incarnations when you were at the forefront of things. Hence to this very day there probably remains within you considerable inner strength along with a strong feeling for behind-the-scenes intrigues as well as a powerful sense of individualism. These qualities are probably connected with your past life experiences involved -- directly and indirectly -- with leaders of society and government.
You are also likely to have an above-average interest in the great artistic and spiritual accomplishments of the grand cathedrals and great churches of Britain and Europe, as well as the ancient temples of the Mediterranean world.
In addition, you may have been one of the higher-ranking Vikings who, like other royalty, also had an exciting lifestyle. And in far earlier times, during and after the last days of Lemuria and Atlantis, you may have been among the Incan pyramid builders in the mountains of South America, the Mayan plains of Central America, and of course, Egypt, the land which is virtually synonymous with great pyramids.
The Sun is the ruler or symbol of Leo, and represents strength and soul force. So, from the Sun's influence and the past life experiences summarized here, you are inclined to have a special sense of pride and dignity which, depending on how you apply your will and the ideals you have set for yourself, can either enhance or hinder your relationships with others (and hence either advance or retard your soul growth this lifetime). [533-20, 2905-3]
Your Moon 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 longlasting 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 wholistic, 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 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 Leo Decanate
Your sidereal Sun is in the decanate of LEO, which is ruled by the Sun. The Sun as Past Life Planet indicates a high level of soul development and power with great potential for spiritual service and leadership in the present.
As the Sun sojourn between lives is the highest interlife experience possible in this system, you may have voluntarily chosen to reincarnate to help and uplift others. Therefore one or more prior lifetimes of leadership in religious or state affairs, or both, in ancient Egypt, Persia, modern Europe, or elsewhere in Asia, is likely.
Your Moon is in Taurus Decanate
Your sidereal Moon is in TAURUS decanate, which is ruled by Venus. Venus as Past Life Planet points to high priorities in creativity, sociability and relationships, especially in your family/home life and in the world of nature. Urges toward these experiences and interests from your sojourn in the Venus dimension are likely to originate in parallel lifetimes of soul development through these areas of self-expression.
Especially indicated are lives in the early Jewish-Christian Church and later as an artist-musician in modern times, whether in the West (Europe and/or America), or in modern or colonial Asia.
