As we are learning the patterns of planet and reason behind them in the Happiness series of Predictive Astrology course -This will appropriate time to understand the divisional charts as well- As there are certain divisional charts which are specifically used to see what we have carried over from past life and this includes both good and bad deeds. These charts are helpful in understanding the patterns of our life and where we need to do correction.
Let us today start with one of the simple techniques -Memories of Past life- As Mercury gets the last nakshatra and the reason is as Mercury stores the information and then help us memories the events of past life when dasa occurs- that is why in dasa of Mercury only the native will start with their hobbies or start learning something which they have never done before in life but it is only the dasa of Mercury that they start getting in to the hobbies and start pursuing their interest such as Dancing. astrology, singing. The reason they are doing this as they start getting connected to their past life dasa- Other day I wrote an article explaining why dasa of Mercury can be most Karmic dasa-KARMIC DASA.
That is why Mercury in Debilitation is a curse because the person forgets the knowledge of past several life’s on which he has worked very hard due to curse but the problem gets severe when houses of Mercury are also afflicted then you can definitely say that native will have start from scratch and now require a Guru to help him regain his past life talents-There are certain talents which comes naturally to natives such as Singing, Music, Jyotish- Anyone can study them but some people have natural talent for them as you will see these people will have Mercury placed in good position in their charts.
Everyone of us had some special skill in past life – A learning which we were suppose to carry over -Mercury which is assigned with last nakshatra does this job of tagging all the memories. That is why dasa of Mercury becomes the most karmic one as all the talents, Memories of past life start to come in to play.
People born with good Mercury are blessed as they remember the talents such as singing, actors, comedians, astrologers, skill comes naturally to them.
Mercury is also called as Abhagya- reason beings all the skills will come from practice rather than the Bhagya, Mercury debilitation and affliction to houses of Mercury shows native will forget the talent which he has acquired in past life- That is why in deep debilitation native requires help of Guru and Pitris to make him remember some portion of his talent and clearly either a blessing of pitris or curse depending on combinations in Pisces as this can be good combo as well.
When Gemini is afflicted -It shows native will forget the talent and how to practically approach the subject and all his desires to be singer, cook, astrologer will remain in the memories.
When Virgo is afflicted it shows native will have talent but will not be able to place plans to action to make living out of it and will suffer as other people will follow his ideas and make money but not native himself and has to work under less talented people.
Look at the placement of Mercury and Mercurian houses in your chart to see what talent or memories you have carried over from past- Sometimes memories are so painful that behavior of the native will be molded around those habits- Such as Gemini 7th house -Mercury afflicted- Native will have severe troubles with the friends/Siblings of native interacting with partner as his past life memory is friends creating trouble in married life.
In Taurus Ascendant Mercury in Pisces in deep debilitation with Gemini afflicted- Native has trouble spending and sharing money on family and the reason is deep down he knows this family of past life has taken his money and will not spend money on them.
This is only glimpse of Memory of past life as it runs down several divisional charts in and with dasa of Bhrigu we will come to know several more layers to predict what memories native carry over from past life.
Let us see few examples-
This is chart of Prince Harry- Let us see -how Mercury has shaped his thinking pattern of life- As Mercury rules our sub conscious brain and shape up our insecurities.
The curse of 9th house Mercury as we studied was –
1) Native starts a new culture or religion to end the hypocrisy of several well established institutes -Well that has clearly been the case with prince Harry as he decided to give up monarch status due to laws and restrictions he was facing.
2) 9th Mercury should be very careful with the Money as eventually he will lost the money as the goal is for greater good of society and in the process of being a leader native forgets about the monetary details – He gave up royal status and perks associated with it without thinking about money matters.
All this changes started happening when he brought Shukra in his life as Virgo is afflicted with debilated Venus- See the insecurity is completely due to Venus as Venus is in debilitation and very close to debility point in the chart – Venus in 10th house hardly gets respect as native has to either ask for charity or work for charitable organizations to get money or be dependent on others for this as Venus in 10th has lost digbal so directive force will come from wife now and she will become the charge.
The native will get really troubled at any point of time when any trouble to female will happen and as a result the biggest royal family drama is in front of us as he has carried over that insecurity of past life in this life with Venus and any time someone will come with a practical solution related to females- the native will never be able to listen as he thinks everyone as his enemy while missing the ground reality as there is an aspect of Rahu on Debilated Venus making the conditions worse.
Once you get the hold of this technique -the we will discuss about the divisional charts showing how past life mistakes, blessings and talents get carried over in this life.
