Astrology & Past Lives
Your past lives are something you can find out about by
various means but one of the most straight forward is by
looking at your birth chart. However, to do this you will need
your time of birth and details from your birth chart.
Within your birth chart are the planets (and angles, e.g. Ascendant or Rising Sign), the
signs and the houses. The planets show what part of your character is influenced, e.g.
the Sun is your internal self.
The signs show how the influence is expressed, e.g. Aries will be competitive and
impatient, and the twelve houses show the area of your life that will be affected.
The First House starts at your Ascendant or Rising sign. This is the time of your actual
birth and represents your basic personality and physical attributes. However, if you go
backwards round the chart from the First House (and therefore back in time) the next
house is the Twelfth House and one of the areas this represents is your past lives.
