Understanding Your Life Cycles

Understanding Your Life Cycles – Past Lives, Karma, and Multiple Incarnations:  the Esoteric Interpretation of the Astrology Chart as a Matrix for Manifesting Your Life’s Lesson Plan

copyright 2007 by Carolyn White, PhD.

Everything and anything that you ever wanted to know about esoterica!  A grand tour of  what underlies our myths and magic!

The question of life and death is one of the greatest questions that face humankind.  When our physical bodies perish, what remains?  If there is an aspect of "us" that remains, what determines the form that this aspect assumes?  This book examines the esoteric aspects of astrology and how our natal birth chart provides the matrix for our life's lesson plan.

In order to have a discussion of how the astrology chart represents a matrix for our current life, I present an understanding of life between lives, reincarnation, and karma.  As well, I examine the roots and development of astrology. To understand the language of esoteric astrology, I explore the symbolism used to interpret the birth chart and the archetypes that serve as the building blocks of our life.  Within this language, there is a basic syntax to the elements of the birth chart:  planets, signs, element, and houses.  I  examine this language in the context of interrelated esoteric traditions of the Hermetic philosophy, the Tarot and the Qabalah.  297 pages.
