I have worked hard these past 45 years to understand, on some level, how Astrology seems to "work" and to, also, develop my intuitive mind, as well
Astrology is the key component, for me, in mapping past lives, to the extent that I do -- we must learn to see with our "third eye" what the chart has to say; we cannot know Astrology only through measurements and cookbooks
the secret is a mystical wink, not a blinking eyeball staring back at us
#Astrology is the key to understanding who you "were"
My belief is that without a strong Astrological synastry between your chart and your proposed past life match, there can be no real connection
even more than my insistence of common physical elements between "incarnations", so (too) do I believe there must be strong intra-aspects between birth charts of #reincarnated individuals
I expect to see multiple tight tight tight aspects between charts, especially conjunctions + quincunxes, with oppositions, trines, and squares (although less important, I believe, than conjunctions and the quincunx) also important
there is a mathematical harmony to the universe and a mathematical harmony, at a micro level, to our individual soul expression, as delineated in each lifetime
