“Past Life Regression”! What Does Your Present Horoscope Tell You About Your Past?
It is always good to refer to Wikipedia for a broad analysis of a phenomenon that has adherents, skeptics, plain-old nonbelievers, those who fear demons, and basic man-on-the-street type observations.
Most people have heard about children having supposed images of past lives --- fully armed with names, addresses, war time experiences and a host of other “fantastic memories”.
“Past Life Regression”, Incarnations, Reincarnation
“It is a method that uses hypnosis to recover what practitioners believe are memories of past lives or incarnations” says Wikipedia.
Well, there we have the word “incarnation” which gives us the word REINCARNATION, which gives us the direction in which this article will move. From the word “confabulation”, which you will read directly, we will proceed to a much more theoretical “Incarnation Treatment” in which we talk about Astro-Influence, Past Lives and how the Future is affected.
The practice of Past Life Regression is widely considered discredited and unscientific by medical practitioners, and experts generally regard claims of recovered memories of past lives as fantasies or delusions or a type of CONFABULATION. Past-life regression is typically undertaken either in pursuit of a spiritual experience, or in a psychotherapeutic setting. Most advocates loosely adhere to beliefs about reincarnation, though religious traditions that incorporate reincarnation generally do not include the idea of repressed memories of past lives.
Reincarnation or Transmigration or Metempsychosis
Reincarnation, also called transmigration or metempsychosis, in religion and philosophy, rebirth of the aspect of an individual that persists after bodily death—whether it be consciousness, mind, the soul, or some other entity—in one or more successive existences.
From South Asian Hindu to Greek Thought and Gnostic Themes to Theosophy
While belief in reincarnation is most characteristic of South Asian and East Asian traditions, it also appears in the religious and philosophical thought of local religions, in some ancient Middle Eastern religions (e.g., the Greek Orphic mystery), Gnosticism, as well as in modern religious movements such as Theosophy.
And then Indian philosophy: which developed the notion of Transmigration.
Hinduism – Heavy Emphasis on Cause and Effect – Transmigration of Karma
The major religions that hold a belief in reincarnation, however, are Asian religions, especially Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Sikhism, all of which arose in India. They all hold in common a doctrine of karma (karman; “act”), the law of cause and effect, which states that what one does in this present life will have its effect in the next life.
Buddhism Differs – “Transmigration of Karma”
Although Buddhism denies the existence of an unchanging, substantial soul or self—it holds to a belief in the transmigration of the karma that is accumulated by an individual in life. (The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica-revised by Amy McKenna, Senior Editor).
Among the ancient Greeks, they held that a preexistent soul survives bodily death and is later reincarnated in a human body, eventually receiving release from the cycle of birth and death and regaining its former pure state. Plato, in the 5th–4th century BCE, believed in an immortal soul that participates in frequent incarnations.

What About Confabulations?
Are “Confabulations” Actually Embedded Inescapable Karmic Visions, Mixing It Up With Your Deeply Seated Moods and Character Traits, Which In Fact Are Your Horoscope Astrologically Weaving Your Soul’s Experience, Friends, Lovers and Victories into your present life?
Leaving behind the validity or provability of a mental vision, let us move to an Incarnation Treatment that can deal with a past, present and theoretically a future life.

An Aries Exemplar
Let us use ARIES as a representative case. Yes, they are known for being high energy starters, and even though they may be slow finishers, one could say that their PAST LIFE’s experience gave them the “want to” to do more than they ever have.
And yet one of Aries drawbacks is that they start so many things they can dissipate themselves, and sometimes collapse in a puddle of exhaustion. So, their PRESENT can leave them in a wonderment. The middle of an Aries life can lead them to lots of planning, and not the high energy achievement they had planned on. The Future for an Aries could be seen as “high octane achievement”. But within the content of these lives is the karmic action of their spirit and working soul, cutting down on the hatred and variance they let into their lives, and how much love they give their families, friends and associates that determine Arian Success.
