PAST LIFE ASTROLOGY: How your former lives influence your present.
Softback, l60 pages
Who were you in your previous lives? Were you perhaps a warrior, a princess, a doctor, a field hand or a pioneer? Past Life Astrology will help you to discover your roles in former incarnations and to explore their effect on your present life in terms of karma. Karma is the Buddhist and Hindu concept which considers the sum of a person’s actions in previous states of existence. It is purposeful, concerned with growth and evolution, rather than punishment, it is an on-going lesson. When you understand your birthchart from the karmic point of view, you will understand why you are here and what you hope to achieve. Past Life astrology shows you how to read your birthchart to reveal what lessons you need to learn in this life to fulfil your highest potential.
• Discover what lives you have lived in the past.
• Learn how to interpret your birthchart from a karmic perspective.
• Find out what your karmic purpose is in this life.
• Understand your present relationships in terms of your past life relationships.
Unlocking The Past Through Astrology
Karmic Astrology gives you the key to understand your past lives and the effect you have on your present life. Karmic Astrology helps you to understand your karmic inheritance and the way your soul wants to grow. Karmic simply means ‘pertaining to karma’ and this type of astrology looks to the past to explain the present.
You will no doubt be familiar with ‘sun-sign astrology’, based on the sign of the zodiac in which the sun resides at your birth, which says that as an Aries, for example, you will have particular character and a specific approach to the world. According to conventional astrology, the birthchart describes who you are. But the notion of a baby being a 'blank slate', randomly born at a specific moment in time imprinted with specific traits according to where the sun is to be found in the sky seems to many people to be nonsense.
However, astrology, and an individual's birthchart, is much more subtle than this. Your birthchart shows the heavens as they appeared overhead when you were born and, as such, is deeply symbolic. When introduced to in depth astrology and told that the birthchart is a map of your entire psyche with your in built expectations and ingrained reactions, as well as what will unfold during your life, you may well ask: "Why? Where does that come from? Why do I respond in that way, why do I have that particular expectation? What made me that way?"
Where did these traits come from? Only when you look at the idea of reincarnation can you find an answer. Reincarnation postulates that you have lived before and have incarnated once again into your present body. Where Karmic Astrology differs from conventional astrology is that karmic astrologers believe that the birthchart sets out a picture that reflects your previous experience, the credits and deficits you yourself created in another life. Conventional astrology says that these patterns arose from a random act of fate: your birth. A statement past life astrologers would strongly disagree with! Indeed, we would say that this moment of birth is carefully chosen so that the chart fits both your past experience and the lessons you have incarnated to learn as well as your potential for the future.
In other words, your birthchart is a map of your karma - the sum total of your actions in the past which will have an effect on your present life. However, it is not necessary to believe in previous lives to use Karmic Astrology. The past stretches back from a moment ago to as far as you want to take it: birth, conception or beyond. By looking at your chart from the karmic perspective, you will understand the person you are now and the potential you have for soul growth.

Chiron and the karmic wound
Softback, 350 pages.
The Wessex Astrologer
Karma shows itself in relationships. The people you meet, the expectations you have, the circumstances in which you relate, the kind of marriage or other association that you find yourself in all reflect previous liaisons. You are the sum total of all that has happened to you and much of your experience will come through relationships. If you have enjoyed good and positive relationships in the past, you will find relationships generally beneficial and life enhancing, but bad experiences will be traumatising and maybe even soul destroying. It is these difficult relationships that create the most ingrained karma and which need healing. The threads of relationship can often be traced back through several lives – most ‘significant others’ have been with you many times. Karmic Connections will help you to identify the history of these relationships through the birthchart and, where necessary assist you to release the past in order to move on.
PATTERNS OF THE PAST
Softback, 350 pages.
The Wessex Astrologer
In this important book Judy Hall challenges concepts that most of us take for granted, which perhaps we never thought through properly but which are actually central to our sense of placement in our own lives. What we ‘under-stand’ literally ‘stands-under’ us, providing the psychological and metaphysical foundation for what we think is real, which in turn conditions our method of dealing with our own experience, or how we move through time.
“Patterns of the Past is full of interesting anecdotes and is rich in case material: it is scholarly, readable, challenging, and above all, immensely practical. The beginner and the seasoned astrologer alike will find in its pages many ideas and references which will help awaken new understanding of the individual horoscope, and also a deeper awareness of the matrix within which it is set The world view within which our study of astrology is placed will yield perceptions accordingly. We can be divided from ourselves through the fear, blame and judgement engendered by a narrow reductive view, or we can embrace a more fluid healing perspective, which opens the possibility of Grace, choice and participation.” (Melanie Reinhart July 200)
THE HADES MOON: Pluto in Aspect to the Moon
Red Wheel Weisers, 316 pages
ISBN 1- 57963-039-8
Using mythology, archetypal symbolism, and a wealth of case histories, The Hades Moon provides important new material and penetrating insight into the many facets of this major, transformative contact between the intimate and emotional Moon and the remote, deeply enigmatic Pluto. The story of Pluto-Moon contacts is the eternal sage of birth, death and rebirth: abandonment and rejection; karma, transformation and new life. No other planetary contact has such a depth of trauma, compulsion and alienation. No other aspect has quite the same metamorphic and healing potential. Judy Hall explains why Pluto-Moon aspects are so important, and gives a description of the Hades Moon through the signs. She explores the Pluto cycle, Pluto from incarnation to initiation, Pluto in the Houses, and Pluto transits and the Hades Moon. She delves into the emotional issues of alienation, abandonment, rejection, and adoption. She also explores the archetype of the dark mother and shows how to trace enmeshed family patterns. Through the book, Hall offers information about flower essences and other techniques that can help people handle Hades Moon energy.
