We never stop reminding you about the simple fact that just like many related practices, astrology is a complex one. This means that there is never just one branch or approach to it, yet there are plenty of them. Karmic astrology is one of those branches that matters greatly since it can reveal what happened to you in your past lives so that you could know where you are standing in the present.
Reincarnation Astrology: The Basics
First things first, we need to figure out what karma is. If you take the definition from Buddhism or Hinduism, it is stated that karma is what sums up your past actions and projects them on the present as well as the future. To put it simply, if you were a bad person in the past, you should redeem yourself, or bad things may happen. That is exactly why composing a horoscope with your karmic background is essential. Once you know it, you will be guided in the right direction, and this is very important for your future.
We know that not all of you are deeply involved with astrology; that is why we are going to explain this branch of astrology as detailed as we can. In fact, there are two ways to dive into your past life horoscope. We are going to start with the simpler one.
As you may already know, astrology is not only about zodiac signs and horoscopes. It is also about houses, nodes, a natal chart, and so on. For figuring out your karmic relationships, we need signs and houses. Actually, we need only one house and just one sign assigned to it – an ascending sign. How do you find it? Well, it is very simple as long as you are aware of all the birth details. Many online calculators provide you with a precise astrology wheel where you can find your ascending sign. It would be a sign of the first house in your wheel.
However, apart from the simple approach, there is a more complex one, and we are going to discuss it too just in case. If you choose this way, you need to take a couple of things into consideration in order to figure out your karmic sign. Firstly, you need three houses, lunar nodes, retrograde planets, and planet Saturn in particular, all combined in a birth chart so that you could figure out details that concern your past life.
We are going to start with the houses. Your main attention should be centered on the eighth, fourth, and twelfth houses. All of the named houses are associated with a water element. Your past relationships are defined by the eighth house, the present – by fourth, and the future – by twelfth. Saturn is usually called the lord of karma so that you know.
As for the nodes, the south node is all about your ancestry, while the north node is about the main goal of this life.
Rising Sign Interpretation
Those of you who have Aries as your ascending sign were connected with Pisces in your karmic past. This means that in your past life, you were someone highly spiritual but serving others for the most part. This life should be lived in service to yourself. It is time for you to do what you want – not what others may expect from you. However, when you start living your life, it is essential for you to avoid turning into someone selfish. You should also try not to become a victim. If you wonder who you might have been in the past, it is most likely that you were a priest, poet or mystic. There is also a chance that you might have been fighting some addiction in the past.
If there is the sun sign of Taurus in your first house, it means that you were associated with Aries and were highly aggressive in time past. You might have been a warrior or even a commander. That is why, in this life, you also strive to be successful, however, without unnecessary aggression. You may lead an interesting but a little impulsive life, yet there is nothing wrong with it as long as you keep away from being domineering.
Those of you who have Gemini in the first house are likely to spend their past life connected to Taurus. It is safe to say that you were someone sensual who knew how to enjoy life to the full. Deep inside, you realize that you had enough fun, and now it is time to concentrate on something stimulating and interesting. You seek new experiences, and we can’t blame you for this. In this life, you can easily communicate with people with the help of teaching or writing. The choice is yours. However, it is highly important for you to avoid turning into someone too tough. If you wonder who you might have been in your karmic past, we assume a painter, musician or a businessman.
If there is Cancer in your first house, it is easy to guess that you were close to Gemini. One interesting detail about your karmic biography is that you were highly educated and intellectual but something else was missing. We assume that love was the one thing that was missing in the past since you were not good at emotions. This time, you have figured that the best way to live a life is to combine both intellect and emotions so that the former would not overrule the latter, and we say that it is a wise approach. You need to focus on your family and those you love most. As for the past, astrology says that you were a teacher, orator or a salesman.
It is safe to say that Leo is a contradictive sign. However, in the past, you weren’t a lion – you were Cancer. Being a Cancer means that you were very emotional (though not necessarily in a good way). Being too emotional might have made you weak, fearful and insecure. Your main goal in this life is to overcome all those things. Of course, a Leo is usually self-assured, passionate and desirous to succeed.
Nevertheless, Leo turns out to be a little egocentric, and this is something you should try and keep away from. When you meet your soul mate, is it best to give your heart away than turn into a selfish owner. You should also deal with the fears that take root in the past. You shouldn’t be afraid of being abandoned as long as you contribute to your karmic relations. You could have been a Mother Superior in the past since taking care of others was the best thing you were great at.
The sign of Virgo in your first house means that you were a Leo back then. As all Leos, you were self-centered, and everyone was supposed to serve you. As a Virgo, you do not feel like being that selfish anymore, and you tend to devote yourself to others. However, that is a tricky path too, since if you are not careful enough, you may lose yourself in the service to others, and this is something you wouldn’t want. Your main goal is to find a balance that will keep you successful and fulfilled throughout your life. As for the past, you were someone of royal birth, up to a king or a queen.
When you have a look at your natal chart and see Libra in the first house, this means that you were a Virgo once, and now it is time to change things. The fact is that just like any other typical Virgo, you worked a lot in the past, all to please others. In this life, it is time to think about yourself a little. You need to attend to your personal needs in the first place. Of course, that does not mean you should be selfish and unfair. However, balance is the key. You were a great nurse or a chef a while back.
With Scorpio in the first house, it is clear that you were associated with Libra before. This can only mean that you spend most of your past life in search of balance. It should be mentioned that the more you tried, the better you understood that sensual satisfaction was the cornerstone. In this life, you are attracted to anything that may have a mysterious twist to it. However, since it is easy to assume that the balance wasn’t restored, you may try to do it once again. It is said that people like you were either diplomats or lawyers or even judges in the past.
Sagittarius in your first house defines that you were an explorer once. Unlike many other signs, you feel a strong connection with the past. All that you did before grants you the ability to share it with others in this life. You do not like to be limited in anything; free will and endless adventures are what you crave for. However, that thirst for adventures may affect your personal life and not in the best way. The fact is that your karma is to commit to one person without the slightest fear that it may not work out for you.
As a Sagittarius in the past, you had plenty of fun. You traveled a lot, and this is what made you who you were. However, in this life, you are a Capricorn, and things are a little different. You are disciplined, and you work hard to achieve anything, yet you like the way things are. Nevertheless, there may be a karmic relationship between your desire to earn more and what you actually need in this life. It is best if you manage to stop somewhere in the middle. You can project your past hobbies to the present and keep on traveling and having fun once in a while. You were a professor or a ship captain in the past.
As you may have already guessed, as a Capricorn in the past, you worked hard, and now it is time for you to have some rest. All the conservativeness of Capricorn didn’t transit with you into this life. You do not like to follow the rules or set any boundaries. However, if you keep living in such a rebellious manner, it is easy to lose your cause. So, your karma is not to rebel if there is no reason for that. You were a doctor, politician or policemen in the past.
If there is the sign of Pisces in your first house, then you were an Aquarius once. This can only mean that you had your fun, and it is time to think about something else for a change. Pisces usually feel like they can’t spend a day without taking care of others. There is nothing wrong with it as long as you do not lose yourself in the process. You were a scientist, star or politician in the past.
To sum everything up, we are perfectly aware of the fact that astrology is not a precise science, but knowing who you were before may help you become who you want to be in the present.
