Welcome to your Past Life report. Whereas the birthchart is a symbolic road map describing your current life, the Past Lives chart is a blueprint of your previous incarnations. The pages that follow will help shed some light on themes related to your past life instincts. First, let’s talk about reincarnation which is the belief that the current incarnation (as depicted by our birthchart) is linked to the lives that we have previously led. This collection of past influences points to particular experiences you might encounter again so that you can further your growth and fully develop your creative potential. These past impressions go far in shaping many of our current thoughts and choices. There are certain gifts a person seems to possess right out of the womb! It’s as though destiny or fate leads one to realize these attributes. Of course, we still have to show ambition and make the effort in order to keep our dreams alive. This report may give confirmation to talents that you already know you have or open your eyes to ones that you have yet to discover.
Our past lives are alive and well in our consciousness. This may already be apparent to you. But on the other hand, these experiences can lie beyond the threshold of our conscious mind’s awareness. What is doing the remembering, if our mind isn’t? Call it your soul, higher consciousness or whatever explanation feels right to you.
Have you ever heard about karma, that great law of cause and effect? An old timeless saying sums up the whole process: “You reap what you sow.” There are actions and thoughts that defined us in other lives, or have guided us to where we are in the present. They don’t really exert any control over us. We have freedom of choice. That’s a strong message to remember when reading this report.
Also, don’t panic if you read something that says you were not a perfect person. Nobody is in the current one! Use the report as a learning tool. The idea is to keep developing and evolving. It’s balancing the cosmic rhythm of past and present that presents each of us with a challenge. Do we respond positively or negatively? With hope or doubt? Many of our tendencies are linked to previous incarnations. Certain patterns have likely been by our side over many lifetimes. As we grow and expand our awareness, it becomes very possible to step beyond the trappings of past life baggage.
No doubt you will read various sections that seem to contradict each other. Each could be true about you. It’s important to realize that many different dimensions of ourselves live within us. Each of us is composed of memories from so many past lives, combined with an assortment of ways we have learned to deal with reality in this life, that make us complex beings. See which descriptions ring true to you as you read through the following pages. You will notice some traits described have a repeating theme.
I hope you find this report an enjoyable ride into your past life instincts and thought patterns. They are somewhere in your consciousness. Perhaps some of what you read will strike a familiar chord. After all, these pages are all about your past life loves, creative pursuits, adventures, travels, highs and lows, over many lifetimes. Happy navigating!
The Past Life Chart Structure
Some technical explanations about the Past Life chart (if you detest technical discussions, then skip this paragraph and jump right into the report!). The Ascendant in this chart starts with the sign on the cusp of the 12th house, instead of the traditional method of using the sign on the 1st house cusp, which is the sign rising on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. Also, the Past Life birthchart houses are counted clockwise, rather than the conventional way of counterclockwise. In other words, since the 12th house becomes the Ascendant, the sign on the cusp of the 11th house now begins the 2nd house, etc., around the chart wheel. What is considered the Ascendant or 1st house in the traditional chart becomes the 12th in the Past Life chart. Your planets remain in the same sign placements, but now occupy different houses, in this new chart. The planets in signs are interpreted in your report from a past lives perspective.
Something interesting to consider in thinking of the houses in a clockwise direction, they are actually now moving in the same direction as the Nodes of the Moon. As you will read in the report the Moon’s nodes are strong past life or karmic points in a chart. Their retrograde motion is clockwise meaning they share the same life biorhythms as the houses of the Past Life chart. By traveling backward, or clockwise, through the houses, you are being regressed back into a past life analysis. Enjoy your ride down memory filled lanes!
In this section are the first, middle and last names of your Past Lives astrological identity, the Sun, Moon, and Past Lives Ascendant. Each of these three building blocks will be discussed as to how they actively shaped many of your former lives. But before you meet these three key players, you will start your tour through memory lane with the North Node of the Moon. The North Node contains a special message about what was your overall life purpose. It was a constant rhythm pulsating in your consciousness to keep you on target toward your true purposes. It was a celestial compass trying to guide you to walk your talk with greater clarity. So sit back, and enjoy reading your past lives primer.
Node in Virgo
You had a history of compulsively trying to perform efficiently. One of your key impulses was a desire for order. Your soul was normally anxious to reincarnate, anticipating excitedly the chance to master the roles that called to you. The archetypal theme for your destiny was to be an energizer. A crucial lesson was not to overuse your conscious mind to the exclusion of your intuition, as this caused you to miss out on some of life’s magical moments. Developing your skills elevated your self-confidence. You were thorough in what you enjoyed doing. Though anxiously overdoing something wreaked havoc on your nervous system. You relied heavily on your analytical ability.
It was refreshing when you let your inner instincts guide you. You were able to tune into a higher frequency containing many of your gifts. A trickster was not to set your standards so high they couldn’t be met by you or anyone else. Having unattainable objectives frustrated you. Finding a way to balance worrying over the details with relying on your intuitive power was a key to your happiness. You were sensitive about something in your life being out of place. You enjoyed getting a chance to excel in demonstrating your ability and in serving causes that enlarged your presence in the world. A dedication to diet and health along with a love for the arts was felt right down to your bones.
Node in 11th house
What types of activities did you participate in that furthered your soul growth? It was most definitely when you shot a full throttle in expressing your individuality. You did need to exercise caution in not squashing the self-expression of others. When feeling the incredible creative power within, you were a source of strength for others and enjoyed a wide array of accomplishments. A common concern was “how can I continue marching to my own drum?” When you didn’t grow overly demanding in always having to get your own way, or when you didn’t too easily surrender your independence, you managed to stay out of karma’s way. What sorts of experiences motivated you? Whatever gave you a sense of freedom was quite an enticing force. You leaped with enthusiasm when getting opportunities to show your uniqueness. Progressive trends electrified your imagination. Your energy levels peaked when getting to express your inventiveness. Following a unique sense of direction separated you from the mainstream occasionally. Maintaining a clear picture of your goals kept you on track, as much as becoming too fixated on your own purposes created considerable distance from those closest to you. Somewhere always hiding in the caverns of your memory banks was an innovative instinct mixed with a tinge of great will power. When using this wisely and insightfully, life was colored with a constant array of surprising events and interesting companions.
Sun: Creativity, Ego, Self-expression
Sun in Capricorn:
The sign of Capricorn, the goat, lighted the early-winter astrological skies at your birth into this life. Let’s explore what significance this had in regard to your past lives. In traditional astrology the keyword phrase for Capricorn is “I build”. You had a repeating pattern tied to ambition. Slowly and methodically putting together a plan for success was a regular theme. You were usually someone seeking the structure that allowed you to feel secure. Change wasn’t really a welcome sight in past incarnations unless you were the one controlling it.
Archetypes for Capricorn include the leader, authority figure and self-reliant one. You normally attracted responsibility early in life. The sooner you realized that you couldn’t always be in control, the happier you were.
The cosmic principle at work through many of your past incarnations was a reality oriented mind. This doesn’t mean you never had a good time. You didn’t trust possibility as much as the definite. Leadership roles influenced you to get good at managing your time. It was less stressful when you learned how to delegate. People tended to trust that you would do a job with conscientious effort. You found ego strength through gaining respect for the commitment you put into whatever roles you chose. Fear of failure was the greatest shadow. It held you back a time or two. You came into this life solarized through a sign promoting focus. This was a theme that ran throughout your incarnations and was a key to self-mastery. It was when you acted with flexibility and even a teaspoon of vulnerability that good fortune smiled upon you.
Sun in 8th house
You had solar power firing right into your emotional intensity in previous lives. Figuring out how to either share or split your assets with others was a key theme. You didn’t trust just anyone with your belongings or your feelings. Your creative vitality picked up steam as you came into your own strength. You had to deal with those jealous of your victories and success. Then again, you could covet what others had gained. You liked living in the extreme because it made you keep your edge. Pride was experienced when reaching your goals through figuring out how to beat the odds. You were quite the problem-solver, when you wanted to be. Nobody talked you into doing things you were against.
If there was a challenge, it was either overusing, or giving away your power too easily. Manipulating didn’t make others like you. However, trusting the wrong people didn’t do much for you either. Authentic personal power based on facing your own shadows was liberating. You were deep. A probing type that walked along the back alleys of societal taboos while many chose to stay near mainstream acceptance. Researching and investigating were talents. Lovers preferred you to be passionate but not so demanding. The world responded positively to you when showing some degree of feeling, but not as warmly when turning everything into a game plan. Your self-expression eventually came forward when you trusted you had what it took. Loyal partners really helped pave the way for your confident belief in yourself. You tended to process the past in a contemplative way, if you weren’t trying to bury it. You found fulfillment when you achieved self-mastery in roles that were of your own choosing.
Moon: Sense of Security, Roots, Feelings
Moon in Aries:
You were lunarized at birth through the sign of Aries. What does this say about your past life tendencies? An instinctual fighting spirit allowed you to survive calamities and dilemmas. The family ancestries in past lives were linked by a pioneering spirit. You searched your soul for the courage to act decisively.
Your inner landscapes were colored with a restless atmosphere for adventure. Competition pumped you with a feisty attitude. There were lives where you lacked the backbone of your convictions. A lack of initiative or just plain fear kept you from boldly displaying your true self. You usually incarnated with a sense of urgency to move forward. Patience never came easy. Channeling anger constructively was the sign of true wisdom. As you matured, and found your true paths, the powers of concentration were cultivated. You preferred individuals who knew how to take care of themselves.
You never had a feeling of extreme permanence in many lives about where you resided. Moving seems to have fit your need to look for opportunities. Finding a location that satisfied your sense of adventure was foremost in your mind. Your subconscious called to you to seek those experiences that gave you a strong sense of identity and purpose.
Moon in 4th house
You had intuitive power when it came to survival in past lives. A sixth sense for knowing how to preserve your sense of well being was highly developed. You instinctually knew how to time a change so that it would give you a greater sense of security. It wasn’t that you relished giving up what you had, especially if you liked your lifestyle, only that you wanted to be ready to ride out any potential upheavals. Part of you always feared the worst in order to be able to accept the harshest reality. Family concerns played a major role. First and foremost, you loved feeling needed! Being a caretaker or nurturer was a role in which you were often cast.
Home was something you treated as sacred ground. You had territorial needs that had to be respected by others. Your loyalty to those you loved was a stabilizing factor. Your moods were a barometer of your feelings. Turbulent emotions could find you vacillating from smiles to frowns quickly. An inner feeling to break free from the expectations of those from your past did surface occasionally. Dealing with controlling authority figures was usually when this tendency was the strongest. You repeatedly lived in locations offering comfort, safety and by all means, privacy.
Ascendant: Persona, Identity, Calling Card
Cancer on Ascendant:
With the sign Cancer as your past lives Ascendant, a search for a sense of security frequently colored your incarnations. You were very attached to your home. When you became bonded to a location or home, it took a lot to pry you loose. You moved fast when needing to preserve your sense of security. You were not the easiest person to get to know. On the surface you seemed rather flowing, but behind that outer show of cool was a tendency to proceed slowly. You looked out at the world with cautious eyes. People perceived you in past lives as a very private person. Your inner world was complex. People saw you as a bit secretive. You revealed your secret agendas to those who won your trust or admiration. Honoring your family ancestry was a heartfelt desire. You frequently looked at the world through eyes that wished to preserve the past. You initiated actions spontaneously when you became fired up over an idea. When you were the catalyst for change, you moved faster than when you were attempting to adjust to changes imposed upon you. You had a need to be with people not afraid to feel deeply. You usually looked for those closest to you to give their support when you needed to meet life’s challenges. Remembering to take the time to be happy and appreciate the present was something you always needed to learn.

Sometimes you outsmarted yourself through trying to manipulate the outcome of situations. Trust was not all that easy in love relationships or even with friends. However, when you did manage to get close to someone the bond in many instances went on for years.
Communication was not so forthcoming. You kept many secrets. When you wanted to talk to the depths of someone’s psyche, you could do it. There were interests that you weren’t comfortable telling the world about. Many thought you somewhat mysterious, and even intriguing. You read moods quite well and often knew just what to say to get your own way. You had introspective periods that made you not easy to figure out. Power struggles did result if you pushed too much for your own ideas to the detriment of others. Your paths needed to provide plenty of intensity or you grew restless. You created friction to make life more exciting.
Venus: Relationships, Values, Comfort.
Venus in Sagittarius
With the love goddess adorning you through the sign of Sagittarius at birth, you came from past lives where you repeatedly found love in places far from birth. Many people experienced you as symbolizing free-spiritedness and adaptability. Your social instincts were shaded with a hue of a talkative, entertaining storyteller, yet there was an unmistakably deep philosopher peering out from deep within you.
The ideal soul mate could change course with you in a flash, setting sails for seas of high adventure. You were attracted to lovers with openness to new learning and with a romantic heart. You liked those willing to forgive you when you put your foot in your mouth. There was an innocence about you that either made your friends like you or think you too naive.

Outgoing sorts attracted you as much as your friendly style brought them to you. Meeting lovers or friends through travel occurred often. Foreign lands called strongly to you.

Some accused you of not following through on your promises, while you explained this as being distracted by so many roads in front of you. Your peers experienced you to be idealistic and fun. They themselves usually were spontaneous in their own right if they had hopes of keeping up with you. Friends usually had a similar philosophical outlook or at least could tolerate the differences.

A balanced perspective regarding limits had to be learned. You were attached to freedom. When individuals acknowledged your need to roam you felt valued. Helping those you loved achieve greater self-confidence meant a lot to you.
Mars: Assertion, Courage, Identity
Mars in Sagittarius
What would a warrior planet in the fiery sign of Sagittarius mean regarding your past lives? You were a restless adventurer. Sitting still and waiting for life to happen to you wasn’t your style. Fighting for your beliefs was a regular pattern. You liked to travel, even along unexplored territories. Finding those back trails made you excited. Your initiating impulse was accelerated when chasing your romanticized dreams. You needed idealism to keep fueling your drive.

Mars in 9th house
You took initiative when it came to adventurous risk-taking. Waiting for life to come to you wasn’t your way. Your adrenaline got pumping through chasing after the distant horizons that promised excitement and expansive opportunities. A competitive side came forward when someone tried to out argue you. Fighting to defend what you believed in was done fervently and was a repeating pattern. Your faith in an idea or philosophy wasn’t intimidated easily by the critics. What made you become territorial? It was due to people trying to force their way of thinking on you. Your own mental freedom was off limits to those trespassing. Those closest to you did grow upset if you became too dogmatic or judgmental. Agreeing to disagree did work wonders.
Impatience caused you to repeat mistakes. Failing to slow down and think first got you into trouble. Becoming aware of the big picture made you see the turns in the road a little quicker.

It was better to let you vent because you were then so much easier to reason with.
Jupiter: Knowledge, Expansion, Philosophy, Travel
Jupiter in Sagittarius
Having Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, in the sign of Sagittarius indicates that you were enthusiastic about new adventures. A gypsy, free-spirited soul you were! You chose to expand your potential through education and meeting people from diverse backgrounds. Knowledge was godlike in your perspective. Learning made you feel like you were soaring high above the crowd. It was important for you to find your own unique destiny, no matter where this took you. In many lives you were as nomadic as they came. You were luckier than most. Why? Maybe it was that undying faith in positive outcomes. Or perhaps it was that captivating way of talking. You were a fish out of water when lacking confidence. You assumed it was your birthright to know things always worked out for the best. Blind faith and making ridiculous promises got the world mad at you. When you became too argumentative for your own truths, lovers and friends turned away until you became more accepting. You often were just the lift others needed to be around. Your restless spirit danced circles around the more complacent. You didn’t want to rest for too long, fearing you could miss the next door of opportunity. When maintaining a broad perspective you more easily could see your way through the trees without losing the inherent beauty of the forest.
Jupiter in 9th house
A positive and enterprising outlook influenced you to seek expansive truths that kept the door open to a never-ending search for adventure. All roads led to Rome was a mantra. You tended to bite off more than you could chew. Promising too much in the form of overconfidence occurred. The urge to see life from various perspectives caused you to delay in concentrating on any one path. Spontaneity was a life force in your eyes. You had definite opinions about right and wrong. You were likeable when not judgmental. Writing and speaking were powerful tools in your hands. Preaching what you believed either won you approval or met with considerable resistance by those disagreeing. Travel for pleasure or learning, were equally enjoyed.

You feared growing old in mind, more than you worried about the physical. Luck smiled favorably upon you when you were willing to act on your beliefs. Good fortune came through not blindly following in other’s footsteps, and in not losing sight of the trees by concentrating too much on the forest.
Saturn: Ambition, Seriousness, Focus, Responsibility
Saturn in Capricorn
Ambition came through you in a very focused way, says your past lives history, with Saturn in the sobering sign of Capricorn. Being a success was a driving force. Discipline was pretty much accepted as a way of life. Delayed gratification seemed worth it if you could eventually attain desired aims. You learned a lot about responsibility early in life. When you took your time with small steps, you usually got a job done. Your greatest fear was vulnerability. Letting others know you were down wasn’t your style. Reputation meant much to you. You wanted to be known as Mr. or Ms. Reliable.
A karmic shadow was a rigid all knowing attitude. When you left room for others to express their opinions, life was certainly more harmonious. It was important to make time for play. Sadness sometimes surfaced in you, if you were too much the loner, allowing little chance for a social life. You often defined yourself through long-term dedication to a profession, and as someone people could trust to do the right thing.
Saturn in 8th house
What was your main focus? It was personal empowerment, whether through wealth or partnerships. Balancing dependency needs was a key to happiness. You consistently asked at crucial points during an incarnation: how do I secure my position of power? Survival instincts were usually strong. Determining just how close to live near the edge gave you a sense of control. Rigidity in negotiation sometimes produced karmic woes. The antidote was greater flexibility in this area, that is, when you were determined not to repeat the same old lessons you needed to learn. You sometimes hid your true agendas due to a lack of trust. When becoming dictatorial people didn’t like you. Business savvy was at your fingertips.
A shadow was difficulty trusting anyone. When you did draw close, you were quite loyal. Clear definition regarding what belonged to you was a definite need. You learned it was important to manage your time wisely. You eventually were hungry for self-mastery. Conquering irrational fears was liberating. A major redefining occurred in lifetimes that was associated with rebirth, or a sense of renewal. Channeling negatives into positives was a type of transformation. Wisdom came through forgiveness, and in not holding prolonged grudges.
Uranus: Individuality, Goals, Uniqueness, Freedom
Uranus in Leo
You had a tendency to react dramatically about future goals, which indicates Uranus in the sign Leo. Your mind did switch to fast forward when imagining how to express yourself creatively. People couldn’t help but notice your ideas, as they often were communicated in a lively manner. You didn’t excel in seeing how to include others in major decisions, but did do better with practice.
Inventiveness was a trait that made you proud of yourself. If others didn’t openly show their appreciation for your original ideas, you did grow quite upset. You inspired people to make the most of their talents. Even lovers benefited from your ability to see where they may have had hidden ability. Maintaining a sense of direction made you feel that the world was your oyster and that surely the love and rewards you sought would find you.
Uranus in 1st house
In what way were you unconventional? It was in terms of your identity and personal style. This was how you often reinvented yourself and found the courage to have futuristic vision. Ideas shot through you like heat seeking missiles. They followed the minds of others until penetrating their targets. You were impulsive in putting your goals into action. As a matter of fact, you felt stuck at step one when lacking a sense of direction. Being independent was spontaneous. You were quite outspoken for personal autonomy. Doing the same routines never made your day a memorable experience. Variety in all of its wonderful shapes and forms was your first choice. You didn’t normally consider the consequences of your actions. You weren’t one to compromise your freedom, which incidentally was your lifeline. You needed more latitude than many to seek self-discovery. You became inventive when you broke the shackles of your own self-doubts.
Neptune: Idealism, Romanticism, Intuition, Dreams, Escapism
Neptune in Scorpio
You believed in ideals that spoke to the passion within you.
Your idealism was awakened through finding symbols that gave you a sense of rebirth. Crisis situations were the catalyst that made you use your intuition. The mystical forces of the universe often spoke to and through you. It was not unusual for you to go on silent retreats where you went into deep meditative experiences. Romance had its highs and lows. Balancing the extremes was important. You liked passionate relationships with a bit of mystery surrounding them. Though eventually you often looked for a comforting bond. A lack of trust caused you emotional upheavals. It was reassuring when you found a lover understanding your innermost needs.
A major challenge was addiction to love, sex, and other forms of escape. This isn’t saying you always fell into these behaviors. When you found the clarity and strength to channel this intensity positively, life was more enjoyable. You wanted from the deepest part of your soul to create a life that reflected your self-mastery. You had strong dedication to those you loved and a determination to show the world your talents. You found transcendental growth through dealing with unfinished business from the past, and walking forcefully toward the challenges you instinctually knew would scare and fulfill you at the same time.
Neptune in 10th house
In what way were you extra intuitive? It was in regard to knowing how to perform roles, whether it was in the area of occupation, parent or leader. You were sensitive about being seen as doing great work. Though this doesn’t mean you always could tune into this information or desired to. Glamorous professions or ones that could potentially bring fame mesmerized you. The strange thing is that so did causes that paid little other than emotional satisfaction. This duality existed side by side in many of your lifetimes. Your idealism encouraged you to try things that many wouldn’t go near.
A test was not being swayed by too many opposing loyalties. In the end, this led to dreadful consequences. Your spirituality had a way of solidifying your strength. What was the biggest challenge? It was how you reacted to failure or not meeting your own expectations. Drowning your sorrows in the wrong things wasn’t the answer. Another side of this coin was being afraid to make your abilities visible, as in stage fright. Faith transformed your denial into greater self-acceptance, and not to ask others to be too perfect. You searched for a purpose that gave you a clear awareness of reality.
Pluto: Personal Power, Self-mastery, Rebirth, Loss, Passion
Pluto in Virgo
Empowering yourself through using analytical ability was a past lives tendency. Perfection drove you on to try to do great things. Being reasonable in your expectations was wise. Extreme worry was sometimes a downfall. Curbing this tendency did make you happier and allowed for greater productivity. Charisma was exhibited through working forcefully at whatever you made your life mission. Escaping into projects made you less nervous. There was a habit of putting your heart and soul into a cause.
There was a shadow. What was it? Criticism. You could spot if something was out of place in a second. You did at times overly pick apart yourself or others. When you got this one under control, good fortune was never far away. Self-mastery was discovered through deciphering the ways to work smarter rather than harder. You found rebirth or a sense of fulfillment when overcoming negative thought patterns, and seeing that altered perceptions were truly miracles.
Pluto in 12th house
How did you go about seeking personal empowerment? You followed your idealism as far as it would take you. Acting on faith made you suddenly stronger than you thought. A renewed sense of purpose was discovered through falling in love with a person or a cause. You had high expectations of life that weren’t always easy to meet. Romance did take you out of the doldrums and onto higher plateaus. Your survival skills became activated when people were trying to take away your dreams. This was hands-off territory. Without hope, you were as lost as they came. You depended heavily on lovers and friends for inspiration. A powerful self-examination manifested when you lost a lover or your idealism was crushed. It was then that you had to rally all of your strength to move forward. A compulsive tendency to grow addicted to a lover, or to a substance, threw your life out of balance and got you to ask thought-provoking questions. A shadow frequently followed you into incarnations connected to losing yourself in various escapes. A lack of well-defined boundaries caused confusion in relationships. When you did some reality testing and got grounded, you found greater harmony.
You have already been introduced to the ten planets. Certain planetary pairs in your chart have a special relationship to one another due to particular angular distances separating them, known as aspects. You could say the two planets in an aspect travel and interact together along the same circuit. The following aspects will be listed under five types. Two are known as the soft aspects: the sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees). These two aspects generally point to more gentle themes, and therefore will describe past life trends that went very well for you. They indicate a lower voltage of electricity and produced less friction in your mind and through your actions. The planets involved in a trine or sextile are more likely to talk about areas where you flowed without much effort.
The more hard or intense aspects are the conjunction (0 degrees), square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees). They required your best understanding in past lives. Planets that are part of an intense aspect you will notice often indicate lessons that must be learned, and follow us from one incarnation into another until we get them in balance. These higher voltage aspects don’t mean the planets operated negatively, only that there was much more force behind them. “Soft” does not mean good and “intense” does not imply bad. It is often the more intense aspects that deepen our soul growth, that is, if we learn how to use their power wisely. If we don’t it’s like taking one step forward and three back.

Were you ever more outwardly disruptive? For sure! This usually occurred when you were so aroused by injustices or thinking restrictions imposed upon you. There was a need to perceive with fore thought, which fights were worth the struggle. Being different just to be different or starting conflicts with no purpose, were ways you took many steps in the wrong direction. Listening to cues from the universe on which directions promised accelerated growth was wise. Your vision of the future was as strong as the ability to remember what gave your imagination an electrifying sensation. Patience took effort!

You found rebirth through not fearing your own shadows, and being big enough not to run from those you loved. You processed experiences long after they occurred, revisiting the past often, healed when able to embrace forgiveness.
