Karmic Astrology: What It Is About, Signs and Astral Chart




In Astrology, the center of everything is Man, and everything revolves around him. Today, there are several possible approaches in Astrology, such as Karmic Astrology (past lives), Natal Astrology, Health Astrology, Human Astrology, Esoteric Astrology, among others.

For Karmic Astrology, past life experiences influence our mission in the present guide our behaviors and thought structures. But it also helps us understand how we can improve and shed light on the learning we must do to evolve as human beings and be happier.

In this way, the karmic astrologer seeks answers to problems or emotional dilemmas of the present in past lives. By revealing the past, Karmic Astrology helps us overcome our limitations and become aware of our karma, of our mission.

Karmic Astrology - “Know yourself.”

Karmic Astrology is based on the twelve karmas. These are designated by “Dragon Head” and “Dragon Tail” in Chinese Astrology and by “North Node” and South Node “in the West.

The nodes (or nodules) are represented by the axis between two opposite Solar signs. This means that we live between the extremes, between different ways of being that, together, influence our astrological personality and all our day-to-day attitudes. To realize ourselves as Being, our mission is to balance these antagonistic forces.

Each native of each sign must learn to travel the path of virtue, reasonable, and zero degrees between North and South to evolve and leave the circle of reincarnation (dharma).

Karmic Astrology seeks to help the person understand their relationships, vocations, and family life to break the cycle of negative behaviors that they carry from life to life.

  • North Node of the Moon or Dragon Head is what we try to learn. It tells us where we are going. The North is the present, the moment when we have everything to change and grow. It symbolizes what we have to do to find balance, and it is what we came to learn.
  • South Node of the Moon or Dragon Tail tells us where we come from. It represents the past, our customs, good or bad, habitual actions, and well-rooted in our personality. We must look to the past without fear or attachment, only with the desire to evolve.

The Legend Associated with Karmic Astrology

Hercules, son of Zeus and a mortal, was considered the first man, as a god and a human woman. Like Hercules, Karmic Astrology considers that we bring together these two aspects within us: the animal and divine aspects.

Zeus was married to Hera, who did not accept Zeus’ bastard son. He placed a spell on the wine of Hercules, who, unaware of Hera’s intention, drank it. Crazed, he killed his wife and children.

When he came to, he suffered greatly from his action. Zeus, although he loved him, could not help but punish him. Hercules lost his divine condition and had to face the law of karma. Zeus handed him over to Hera, who was responsible for attributing the punishment to him.

The king of Euristeo, mortal, protected by Hera, an evil and perverse character, assigned twelve tasks to Hercules. For Karmic Astrology, these twelve tasks represent the steps of the incarnation that, once stopped, grant the Being the right to live his divinity, as attributed to Hercules, the return to his family.

What is Karma?

Karma is a law that develops through an emotional attitude. It is the energy produced by our actions in one life, reflected in other lives.

Karma is not a magical condition but awareness and responsibility towards how we decide to live. In other words, emotional maturation is necessary so that what we are (soul) and what we do (personality) are in harmony, allowing the spirit to evolve quietly.

Karma is a commitment to destiny. In Karmic Astrology, there is no weight or guilt, but there is responsibility and the search for enlightenment.

Like Hercules, man must try to return to his Father’s house, where he will find true peace. Through awareness of what motivates our actions, we gain the power and freedom to change them, do good, help others grow, and ultimately find happiness.

Karmic Astrology and the Birth Chart

In Astrology, all the planets have a karmic interpretation. Its position on the chart allows us to identify the most favorable points and difficulties of our astrological personality. For Karmic Astrology, these difficulties are energies that we must try to improve in the present life.

The interpretation of the birth chart allows us to identify the causes of our difficulties: are they from this life or a legacy of past lives? Once we understand the source of these difficulties and fears, we can overcome them.

Zodiac Signs and Karmic Astrology

To better understand karma, Karmic Astrology begins by observing the signs. On the wheel of the Zodiac, each sign has an opposite sign (for example, Pisces - Virgo; Aquarius - Leo; Taurus - Scorpio), revealing the dilemma between the present life and past lives.

The present is the only time that exists. It is the moment when we can achieve everything and act on what happens in our life. But the past is also essential.

When we know our heritage from the past, what we bring from previous life experiences to the present, we can discover the answers to certain enigmas of our personality.

Why do we make certain decisions? Why are we afraid of certain situations? Where do our weaknesses come from? What about phobias and fears? Karmic Astrology seeks to clarify some of these issues, learning and drawing lessons from lived experiences.

In Astrology, the signs represent how “how” we handle life. Using the past, we can favor the present. The signs of the Zodiac are twelve: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. Read about the karma of each sign in this article.

The 12 Laws of Karma

Karma is governed by twelve laws, making it possible to understand the spiritual meaning of existence. However, people are governed by free will; each one is free to follow them or not.

For this reason, practicing good or evil is a personal decision, and that decision result in the consequences for which we are primarily responsible.
