The Link Between Me and the First Century: Henry II
The difficulty in tracking down past-life connections is one’s unwillingness to accept unpalatable truths. That is why I have been reluctant to see myself as Pontius Pilate. Somehow, I couldn’t believe that I would have been the one to crucify Jesus. But, then, I tried Cornelius on for size, and he didn’t fit me, either. Finally, out of desperation, I turned to Saint Andrew. Nice idea, if it were true. However, I knew in my heart I hadn’t been an apostle, or a saint, for that matter. I had been a Roman soldier, that I knew.
What strikes me as significant is Vespasian‘s conquest of the South West of England. It may actually be this part of my history that caused me to return to this area in 1986.
So, can I actually be the reincarnation of Vespasian? I will need to show you the triple combination of birth charts to let you see for yourself.
In very simple terms, my natal Mars and Neptune are echoed in both charts: first of all with Henry’s Uranus and Neptune; and then with Vespasian’s Saturn and Pluto. All other links are secondary and subjective (like, my natal Uranus, conjunct Henry’s Ascendant and Vespasian’s North Node in Cancer). And as I’ve said many times before: does any of this really matter? The answer to that question is ‘no’.
Saturn in my birth chart is indicative of a life that began in or around 10 AD. Vespasian’s Part of Fortune is conjunct this planet at 18 degrees Virgo. That’s a direct hit, for me. My Roman Governor turns out to actually be a Roman Emperor. Who knew?
So, my search for a life in 1st Century Jerusalem is at an end. I’m going to let it rest now.
