What is past life astrology (AKA karmic astrology)?
If you were to examine your birth chart, you will find that it does not only describe who you are, or who you are becoming within this current life, it also gives you hints at who you were in one of your most recent past lives. This is where the term past life astrology comes into play – also known as karma astrology, or karmic Astro.
In each of our charts, we each have a lunar node that is split into two parts, a North Node and a South Node. The North node will describe attributes of the person you are becoming within your present life, whereas the South node describes who you were. In terms of working with past life astrology, we focus on the South node. This is known as Kabbalah’s astrology.
The South Node is then a representation of lessons you have already learned, which would take those attributes, characteristics that are comfort zones for you. An example of this is having your South Node in Taurus and you have great comfort in the materialistic and comforting things in life. This would make your North node in Scorpio, meaning a change from the materialistic into more spiritual aspects. If we consider these signs and nodes in reverse, with the South node being in Scorpio. this would indicate that your previous lives have been about mastering all aspects that are spiritual. Making your North node in Taurus an indication that you need to ground yourself in this life in comparison.
There are other astrologers who find insight into your past lives through the aspects related to Saturn. This is because Saturn is the planet of Karma and, ultimately, a person’s fate. By working out what the astrological sign is that aligns with Saturn on a chart might give you a better idea of who you were.
How are past life astrology and reincarnation related?
Hinduism beholds the belief that when you die, your soul lives on. It is reborn into another body, prepared to take on a whole new life of lessons. This also means that the past life karma you accumulate in your past life is carried over into this life. You could even try past self regression to help discover who you were in a past life.
Past life astrology links with the Hindu and Buddhist beliefs of reincarnation in that they are both referencing the karmic energy of a previous life, usually the most prevalent and recent one. Astrology and past lives can be deciphered through an evaluation of your natal chart. Where the Hindu belief states that your position in your current life is determined by the accumulated karma from your previous lives (this is also called “Sanchit Karma”), Vedic astrology follows that same thought and you can try to work out why you might have a certain position in life now, by looking at your natal chart and the different houses, signs, and planets.

The South Node’s Sign
Now that you have your free past life karmic astrology chart, let’s find out what sign your South Node is in. The sign that your South Node is in alignment with will indicate how you were, not who you were in your past life. These attributes you get from the signs are usually the negative ones but there are the positive attributes that you can look at as well.
As an example, if your South Node was in Cancer, you tend to blame your past for your sensitivities, ignoring the root. it is a sign that is ruled by the moon, which is our emotional influencer. This suggests that in your past life you were ruled by your emotions and this is something you have carried into your present life.
Or, if your South Node is in Libra, you might be slightly manipulative or passive-aggressive. Or maybe your South node is in arise, bestowing you with past life impatience or impulsiveness.
The South Nodes’s house
By determining the house that your South Node’s sin sits in, might indicate where you were in your past life. This doesn’t mean geographically, but rather in a career sense, like where your mind was it.
If your South Node is in the eleventh house, you were a people person, your career or life’s situation had you around lots of people, all the time. In one scenario, if the South node’s sign is Gemini, the people flocked to you for the ability you had with telling or writing stories, and general entertainment. But in a different scenario, if the South Node was in Aries, the people would flock to you because of your leadership, or pioneering qualities.
The South Node’s Aspects
Aspects refer to any other happenings within your past life that have influenced this life experience. This is specifically meaning things that happened that right has been traumatic for you in your past life, that have limited you in this life.
These aspects usually include either a trine or a sextile, which are indicative of positive aspects, or you could have oppositions and squares which are indicative of negative aspects. An example could be having a square to Venus in your South node’s aspects which might reveal that your past life had difficulties in love and marriage.
If you have conjunction in your South Node’s aspects, this is neither negative nor positive. It just means that that planet that was conjunct with you was extremely influential in your past life.
The Twelfth House
Each house has its own meaning and interpretation of that meaning. The unconscious mind is ruled by the twelfth house and is a clear signal for the hidden lessons of your past life experience that were majorly influential when you learned the lesson.
This is an important part of past life astrology because it could be a clear indicator of the karmic energy you still owe. This could take the form of any planet or type of start. And once all of your karmic dues have been paid, there will be nothing in your 12th house – no stars, no planets, nothing.
Saturn and the 12thhouse are similar in nature because they both are representatives of our past life karma. Where the 12th house shows you the karmic energy Saturn from past lives that you have learned, the Saturn in your natal chart is indicative of lessons you failed to earn n your previous life and what you still need to learn in this present life.
An example is having a natal chart with Saturn in Capricorn it means the lessons you carried over to learn are career or social status based. Another example is having a Saturn squared to Mars showing how you will bump into past life enemies in this life and maybe your karma is owed to them or having a Saturn square to Venus means you will have relationships with the same people in a previous life.
This is the past where the good deeds you did in your past life are attributed. This is where you can see how you will reap the benefits of positive karma. Most astrologers do not focus too much energy on this section because it is more beneficial to work on the negative karmic dues and attributes to your present life. While it is fun to celebrate what you have achieved, this will not help you progress any further up.
If your South Node’s ruling planet is in retrograde, it is examed in detail by most astrologers. It is extremely significant for the experience you had in that life was probably very negative that the very planet’s energy was pushed down. This can be interpreted by the meaning of each planet, but it is a very intricate art to understand.
