Decided to move this info over to a separate thread.

Someone had asked on another thread:

quote:
Iím curiousÖ how do you know you have a past life with her? Iím a past life skeptic but Iím curious. There should be some astrological indicators?

That would be hard to answer without writing a small book. I'll try to summarize as briefl as I can (lol, and as you all know, not my strong suit..). But first, I have had A LOT of verification of psychically received information over the years. Because of that, despite that I'm a skeptic period, I've come to trust my inner guidance, intuition and knowing more and more. I always recommend that if someone goes down a path of trying to psychically open up, that they seek verification of the information, because it helps to be a grounding, reality check. If no verification is happening, maybe best to leave it alone.

Besides the information that I have received for and by self from inner guidance (through dreams, meditation, intuition, etc) about past life stuff, I have also received corroborating outside data. For example, my partner of 20+ years, has had dreams about my past life, or various different professional psychics would mention various different things that corroborated with what I had received from within.

My single most intense, way beyond statistical chance experience dealing with past life stuff involved a combo of both of the above. When 16, I had a very vivid dream about being in a huge library and observing two men, one middle aged and one older looking. In that way of dreams, I knew I was connected to and part of the middle aged man. The older man handed my other self a book, and when it opened, a 3D scene started playing. White/Euro, rough, trapper like dude in early American was in a forest. I knew that we were part of him/he was part of us as well. Trapper dude got mauled very badly by a black bear, and lay in the woods dying.

A half Native American, half white, healer woman, that reminded me of Tori Amos (looks and vibe wise) found him. I knew she could telepathically communicate with animals. Anyway, she attemped to heal him. Got pulled out of that scene, back to the library and the older, wiser man said to my other self, "Don't you think you had the knowledge within you at the time?" For some reason, we felt a sense of chagrin and self disappointment.

Fast forward a decade. I'm new on a different astrology forum. I fast became friends with an older woman on there. We found we had a lot of commonalities besides interest in astrology. For a couple examples, we both really liked the Edgar Cayce work and both loved Yeshua in a non religious, non denominational kind of way.

Couple months or so into our online, platonic friendship, her husband who she was very close to, died completely out of the blue during a job site accident. She was devastated and become extremely depressed, morose and despondent. Even though I had never met m friend IRL as they say, I felt a VERY strong sense of, "I have to be there for her no matter what". I ended up spending quite a bit of time on the phone with her, listening to her, trying to counsel her, and trying to gently redirect her to a spiritual bigger picture of things. But she sunk deeper and deeper into depression and only ever wanted to talk about death.

Most of her other forum friends couldn't really take it anymore, it was too heavy for them, but still that strong feel for me, "I HAVE to be there for her no matter what!" Which was not easy, because I'm an extreme empath and was feeling/soaking up all that heavy energy.

Anyways, one of the more interesting commonalities between us, was even though when we met online and became friends, I was living some 600 miles away from her, it turns how that she lived about 10 minutes from where I had spent a good chunk of my childhood growing up (a couple elementary years and a couple highshcool years). I was planning a trip up to that state to see some friends and family, and I asked her, did she want to meet up.

She agreed, and we met up, went to a bar where her cousin was playing in a band. While sitting there talking with her, all of a sudden, she kind of looked a bit like and reminded me of Tori Amos, and then that dream from a decade previous came flooding back into my conscious awareness VERY strongly. Not only the dream, but extra information that I didn't remember from the dream. I just KNEW that this woman was connected to the woman in the dream, the half Native American, half white healer woman who had tried to heal my other self.

But I knew that she had been successful at this, and after they had had an intense romantic connection, but then my other self ended up hurting her very deeply emotionally.

I didn't know what to do with this info, if anything. I knew she was in a very vulnerable place, and I didn't want to add to anything difficult for her, but I felt nudged to talk about this dream and what was happening. I first just tried to feel it out, by asking her questions about things related. Like how did she feel about Native Americans, healing, early, early America, etc. After answering that she had interests in all those areas, I decided to just spill the beans and tell her almost everything.

After I finished, it was one of the few times where I experienced the saying of, seeing another's mouth dropped open in utter amazement and shock. She took some time to collect herself, and then proceeded to tell me that years before we had met, she had an older lady friend who was a spiritual mentor to her. This lady was heavily involved with Edgar Cayce's organization called the A.R.E.

During my friend's birth day one year, her friend decided to get her a unique b-day gift. Her friend was friends with a lady who used to past life readings (also connected to the A.R.E.), but was now retired. She called up her friend to see if she would do her a favor and give my friend a reading. The other lady agreed, and my friend got a reading for her.

Her reading centered around two main past life influences, an ancient Greek lifetime, and a lifetime during early American period where she had been a half Native American, half white woman who was the healer of her tribe. She met and became involved with a white man who ended up hurting her very deeply. Towards the end of the reading, the sensitive said very intently, "You will meet this man later in this life, for you two have unfinished business with each other."

Mind meet explosives. We were both blown away. For me, it explained why I had such a strong and persistent feeling of, "I HAVE to be there for her no matter what", because my Spirit owed her Spirit a deep karmic debt due to the shenanigans and hurtfulness of my Spirit's other Soul self. And just as her other self had healed my other self in that life, I tried to heal her in this life, though in a different way. The very epitome of karma.

But it gets more intense. Later on in researching the Cayce readings, I found these two same exact lives given for two people who had gotten readings from Edgar Cayce and who met each other in that Cayce period life. Everything matches up exactly. Even mentioned for the woman in her Life reading was that she had been highly psychic in that life, but particularly so in relation with animals. The only thing that wasn't mentioned, that had been in my dream, was the man getting mauled b y a bear.

I had received other guidance linking me to the man who had received those readings from Edgar Cayce. In fact, the identify of the man in the Library of my dream, was that same person.

I should mention that I am not the direct, literal reincarnation of either the man from the Library, nor the pioneer/trapper dude from early America. However, we as Souls, all were created by and are connected within the same larger, Spirit self--freewilled, individual, extensions of same you could say.

This doesn't answer your question directly, but I will get to that more later. But suffice it to say for now, when you have experiences like the above, you tend to start trusting. Also, I ended up meeting the foremost biographer of Edgar Cayce, one Sidney Kirkpatrick. When I met him, I felt he had a past life connection to Edgar Cayce and that general Soul group (which had incarnated together for service purposes), and I also felt we had a past life connection. All the previous information I had received for myself and my partner for me and herself, indicated that we were part of that larger Soul group (and we got married at the A.R.E. because of our deep sense of connection).

So I meditated on it, and asked guidance if there was any connection, and if so, what was it. I got yes to both, and then when I asked for a name, I got a name. I later told him, and he was shocked, because that same name had come up for him multiple times with different professional intuitives and readings he and his wife Nancy had received. He said that he kept that info very close to his chest. More over, he had been thinking about that connection literally right before I talked to him about it and felt that I had "read his mind" (I'm not sure that I did though), and started referring to me to his A.R.E. friends and co workers as the "mind reader".

We have been friends since those few years or so back. Again, when things like this happen to you multiple times, its hard to not believe.

Arggh, so much for brevity.

Anyways, more specifically for my friend I was talking about (and this will be a lot more brief for real). When we met, she seemed very familiar, definitely strong feelings of, "I've known this person closely before".

So a little while or so after meeting her, I decided to ask my guidance about any possible connection there. I devoted a mediation to it, and when I asked, I got a yes, and then asked for a name. I received a name I was not consciously familiar with.

Later on, on a hunch, I decided to search that name in the Edgar Cayce online data base of readings. Keep in mind, there are almost 14 and a half thousand psychic readings on file that came from him. I've heard (don't know how true it is) that if all his readings were put in a written book format, said book would be around 50, 000 pages long. In other words, simply an immense amount of data and info, and even now, I can say that I most likely have not read all of those readings.

Anyways, I found the (very unique) name in the Edgar Cayce readings data base. The woman who had received a Life reading ended up meeting Edgar and friends and became somewhat involved in the fledgling A.R.E. She received also medical readings. Anyways, in her Life reading, she was told she had influences from an Egyptian lifetime were she had been associated with many from that same Soul group that incarnated again here in America. The name I had received for my friend, almost completely matched up to the Egptian name that this woman had had.

The name I had received was Ar-Ar-Ra. The name I found was Is-Ar-Ar-Ra. And Is is less part of the name and more part of a title I believe. Is being related to Isis and probably being a priestess of Isis.

Some of the specific things and traits for her, matched up to my friend in different ways. For example, this woman was told that her Akashic symbol was an elaborate, beautiful wreath. This was partly due to a Jewess lifetime where she had been a maker and lover of such ornamental dress, especially head wreaths. My friend also has a thing for elaborate wreaths and has made many. In fact, the first Halloween we celebrated together at a party we both went to, she was wearing a homemade costume where she had made and was wearing a very elaborate wreath.

Then other things. In her Egyptian life, she was a caretaker and teacher of children, and deeply loved her job, was very good at it, and developed a lot spiritually because of that positive service. In this life, my friend is a teacher, and deeply loves/is committed to her job and to the positive development of children. Though she has had major relationship issues and heart ache, her job and service has helped keep her centered and fulfilled.

There are some other minor things as well. This lady had had a Native American life where she had been named for a blue bird. My friend really likes and is drawn to birds. She had had a tarot reading, and in the tarot reading, it came up that she was a very spiritual and powerful Egyptian priestess.

In the reading for the lady and her Egyptian life, the source of the readings gave this lady one of the most glowing and highest compliments ever, after she asked, "44. (Q) Please give me some advice that will help me in training my son [536]?

(A) Rather would the sources seek advice from thee! Thou hast within thyself that which takes hold upon the very truths as He [Christ] expressed. These as precepts, as examples, are the way."

Hi CCE, thanks for sharing all these!

I seldom investigate past lives as I've no way of verifying yet I've had readings and intuitions before. Two examples I can recall...

1) When I was with my ex I consulted a psychic who said I was an Egyptian high priest in a past life and my ex was my student, so this life he has come back to repay me. But I never felt this way (that he was repaying me in any way) and he ended up hurting me so naturally I didn't believe the psychic in the end.

2) Before I met my current guy, I had a dream about him. We were standing in a pavilion high on a mountain top. It was cooling and he was shielding me from behind in a protective stance. Upon waking up a name came to me in a whisper. I knew this was someone significant, either from my past or future. Soon I felt an urging to pray for a partner, which I did. I even prayed that if he was entangled with someone, that the entanglement would be freed.

Some time passed and I met him by divine coincidence. The one who introduced us had Vertex conjunct his IC. By then I had forgotten about the dream so I didn't immediately register that his name was a match. He had broken up with his ex 4 months prior to our meeting. We had immediate strong attraction and a sense of comfort. I seldom feel this way with anyone being a slow burner that I am. We also seemed to intuitively understand each other.. The way he could read my mind was crazy even though he wasn't trying to. We also had strong physical attraction where I often felt like reaching out to touch him. I still do. Things didn't start off smoothly but intuitively I knew we had unfinished business. He felt the same way too, said he knew right from the start we would have a journey together.

However, in Synastry I don't find strong indicators explaining the connection. No conjunctions to Nodes or Vertex which could indicate a fated encounter, which is weird because our journey so far, from before we met, to the circumstances and feelings we experienced etc up to now, definitely feel fated.

Yeah, it's hard to verify this kind of stuff beyond way beyond chance coincidences and synchronicity.

Interesting experiences, thank you for sharing them.

Re: the first, if you think about repayment in the more neutral and karmic sense, she could have been correct. Perhaps it was you that hurt this person in that life, and so he was repaying what you had done to him? This is how karma tends to operate. But it's not a punishment thing, though so many tend to think of it in that kind of way. It's just that we come from a Source/Creator of Love, and even though we cover over that original nature of ours with various false beliefs and perceptions, there is a part of us deep down that remembers that original nature and beingness of ours and so when we hurt others, that part of us feels obligated to experience it in turn.

Whatever the case, clearly you had the power in that connection in the past life since you were the teacher and he was the student. That may be a clue right there.

Re: the second part, very intense. Clearly you both have a powerful spiritual/Soul connection to each other, and may even be twin souls.

To be honest, I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to vertex, as I haven't so far noticed it being super important/crucial in relationships.

But when looking at strong past life connections, you really want to focus the most on the Moon, IC/4th House, South Node, Desc/7th House, 8th, and 12 Houses and their rulers, because these are the most past and/or reflective symbols and areas of the chart. Strong connections between them, and/or say also between symbols like Sun, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune (and sometimes Uranus, though Uranus can be a mixed bag) tend indicate close, loving, and/or spiritual connections. Pluto, Mars, Saturn, and sometimes Uranus (again, a mixed bag), especially via conjunctions, squares, oppositions, and inconjuncts in relation to those past symbols relate more to the difficult parts of a connection or connections in general.

Course, very few past connections were completely 100% harmonious and loving (very hard to do while connected to a body, having ego, etc), and so often we get a mix of the above to some extent.

I didn't get that notion though, that my ex was repaying me in a negative way. It was supposed to be kindness repayment.

I remember a story I read... There was a man who lay dead on a beach. A first woman walked past, saw the dead man laying exposed under the sun and she used a mat to cover the body, then she walked away. Then a 2nd woman walked past, noticed the body, and dug a hole and gave it a proper burial. When the man reincarnated, he met the first woman and stated a relationship with her. A few years later they broke up. Then he met the 2nd woman who buried his body, and married her. The story is talking about karma and repayment. Perhaps to my ex I was like the first woman in the story.

With my current guy, we have a couple of aspects you mentioned in synastry. Strong angles and Neptune contacts, overlays in 4/5/7/8 houses. Our 8H rulers square each other and it happens to be Moon-Saturn. My 8th ruler also falls in his 8th conjunct his Mars. His natal 8H Mars trine 12H Uranus formed a grand kite with my 12H Sun, 10H Mars and 2H Saturn.

Yeah, I don't know. Was just pointing out a possible alternative.

If Saturn is truly exalted in Libra, then something akin to this whole process is probably why.

Thanks for sharing some about your synastry. Yeah, I'm not surprised (from what you have said/talked about) that you have some of those indications.

Btw, we don't often think of it in this sense, but Moon-Saturn aspects tend to have a powerful and peculiar kind of attraction/magnetism.

But it kind of makes sense on a deeper level. Moon and Saturn rule opposite Signs, and there is an innate pull between opposite signs, plus one is very Yin and one is quite Yang. I've especially noticed in synastry that Moon opposite or conjunct Saturn can be powerful.

So are double whammies. I read that they usually set the themes for the relationship.

We have Moon-Saturn DW (square & trine), Moon/Venus-Neptune DW (conjunct, opposite, trine, sextile). My Saturn and his Moon rule our 8H, as Iíve said. My Venus rules 5th & 12th. Neptune rules his IC.

Moon-Saturn tends to glue people even under difficult circumstances, now that Iíve experienced it. Thereís a ĎI-need-youí kinda feeling, like you found an emotional harbour. Itís different from Saturn aspects to the other personal planets.

How do you see indications of twin souls?

Hi Hikaru,

Re twin souls, I don't really have enough of a data set to say anything concrete and with confidence, but this thread and my first reply notes what I've observed so far: http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum35/HTML/011258.html

To sum it up, so far, I tend to see very strong opposite and to a slightly lesser extent, same signs very highlighted between different and important/sensitive symbols between the two charts.

Important/sensitive being any combo of personal planets and/or rulers of Angles (especially 1st, 7th, and 4th) and/or to a slightly lesser extent 5th and 8th.

Twin soul connections are just as likely to be non sexual/romantic as they are romantic/sexual. Very close family members, very close friends that you can't be with for whatever reason, etc are sometimes one of our twin souls. (Twin Souls don't always incarnate together. Sometimes one stays in the nonphysical and acts as a guide/helper for the other).
