Friday repost: Edgar Cayce on Planetary Reincarnation

New feature! On Fridays I’ll select one of the over 2500 articles I’ve written to revive for today’s times.  Today we explore Edgar Cayce’s unusual views on reincarnation and planets. 

“Ascension” by Juan Carlos Garcia

I found this article about Edgar Cayce and astrology linked to the Astrology Weekly forum. I am particularly interested in the comments about the afterlife realms:

Reality is multi-dimensional. We are multi-dimensional beings who exist simultaneously in a multi-dimensional reality. Long ago, our bodies evolved from primates. Even longer ago, our minds evolved from the stars. But before the universe was even created, our spirits have always existed as part of the divine in even higher dimensions. At the conscious (physical) level, our bodies are like a miniature replica of the solar system. Our hearts perform the function of the sun – the center of the system. Other organs within our body are also used by our souls to find a means of expression. The planets exert astrological vibrations upon our bodies that influence our personalities and soul patterns. At the subconscious (soul) level, the solar system is our larger body. We are connected to the planets, the stars, spiritual realms and entities. On the superconscious (spirit) level, we are one with the Whole. At this level, we are on a conscious level with all there is – the divine.

… Cayce revealed that our life experience involves more than just the earth. It involves our entire solar system. Through the principles of astrology, each solar system in the universe is like a “university” – a place for higher learning. Our solar system has nine planets and each planet is a physical representation of a particular afterlife realm (or dimension). […]

Chiron is different from anything else in the Universe

As we prepare for the upcoming square between Jupiter’s expansive optimism and Chiron’s pressure for healing old wounds, I thought it would be useful to repost some articles about Chiron that you may have missed. 

Chiron astrologyart by James Mesple.  The mythological Chiron was a creature that was half man and half horse, so he is often lumped together with other Centaurs who share those physical attributes.  Astrologers sometimes classify him as an asteroid (his original astronomical classification), and astronomers sometimes describe him as a comet because he exhibits comet-like behavior.  You can read more about Chiron’s classification here in this earlier post.

The Centaurs of Greek mythology were actually tribes of beast-like men who roamed through Thessaly and the Pelopenessian peninsula in ancient times.  Although Chiron was similar in appearance, because he was half horse half man, he was of a different lineage entirely.  His father was Cronos (Saturn) and his mother was the nymph Philyra.  Chiron’s bestial shape was due to Cronos having shapeshifted into a stallion in order to overtake and mate with Philyra, the object of his great desire.   So while Chiron shares a similar imagery to the race of Centaurs, he is completely unrelated.

In the same way, Chiron is very different from the other astronomically classified Centaurs. Most important is the location of his orbit which generally lies between Saturn and Uranus although that orbit is elliptical and peculiar.  Barbara Hand Clow has called Chiron the “Rainbow Bridge” between the personal planets (the visible planets through Saturn) and the transpersonal planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto).  The personal planets represent personality, and the outer planets are transformational forces.  Chiron serves the role of facilitating transformation through the healing of […]

This Aries Full Moon is a powerhouse of planetary energies!

Art by Ahmed Walid

The Full Moon is the peak of the lunar cycle, which begins at the New Moon with a fresh new start, and then waxes until it achieves fullness when the Sun opposes the Moon.  This opposition between the solar consciousness and the lunar instincts is what gives the Full Moon its oomph and power.

When the Moon is full in Aries, the primal sign of initiation and action, the lunar instincts of Mars are opposed by the need for balance and harmony of the Libra Sun.  All Full Moons occur in signs of polar opposites, and therefore integration is required.  At the Aries Full Moon we are urged to honor our own needs – to forge our own path in spite of the needs and desires of others and yet to somehow find the balance of the Libra Sun and integrate our own path with a comfortable relationship with the people in our lives.

This Full Moon axis is squared by Pluto, planet of power and transformation which applies a great deal of pressure for growth and evolution, and by Saturn as well.  I think of Pluto as a “higher octave” of Mars – where Mars urges us to satisfy our own desires, Pluto acts as the Will of the Higher Self to guide us whether we ask for it or not.  The presence of Pluto adds intensity and the power of manifestation since the Will is a very strong significator of this Full Moon.  The pressure from Saturn adds a serious tone and suggests that there will be a reward for efforts made during this Full Moon.  Saturn takes us on the lonely path, so this will likely not be […]

Astral Hell: Is it a thing?

The astrological Twitterverse is aflame today with reports of something called the Infernal Astral, or Astral Hell.  Apparently in Brazil this is an established thing among astrologers.  I found this website which says:

You have certainly heard someone complain that they are experiencing ” astral hell ” as they approach their birthday. This period is popularly known as a turbulent phase where everything goes wrong and the person goes through some kind of suffering or difficulty. It is believed that during this period things tend not to work very well, health can be a little weakened, business confused, mood and energy low … It is as if we had to go through some kind of ordeal before enter a new cycle. However, does it really exist?

The most appropriate answer is: it depends. There are no records of the term astral hell in the astrological literature. So it is believed to be an invention made in the twentieth century and has no clear meaning to the more traditional scholars of this science.

The Infernal Astral, or Astral Hell,  apparently suggests that the month before one’s birthday (or Solar Return – the time when the Sun returns to its place in our birthcharts) is when this hell takes place.  Some astro-commentators on Twitter hypothesize that perhaps this is because if you put the Sun on the ascendant at the time of the Solar Return (which I never do and haven’t heard of) the Sun would be going through the twelfth house during that month before one’s birthday.  There would be a sense of completion and releasing that could for some people be a difficult process.

If one’s Sun is stressed in the natal chart, then the Solar Return (or birthday) chart would shine a light on […]
