Dear Bee,

You may have found this already but there is a very interesting section in
the Secret Doctrine p572 -574 which is worth relecting on, from which comes:

"The star under which a human Entity is born, says the Occult teaching, will
remain for ever its star, throughout the whole cycle of its incarnations in
one Manvantara. But this is not his astrological star. The latter is
concerned and connected with the personality, the former with the
INDIVIDUALITY. The "Angel" of that Star, or the Dhyani-Buddha will be either
the guiding or simply the presiding "Angel," so to say, in every new rebirth
of the monad, which is part of his own essence, though his vehicle, man, may
remain for ever ignorant of this fact. The adepts have each their
Dhyani-Buddha, their elder "twin Soul," and they know it, calling it
"Father-Soul," and "Father-Fire." It is only at the last and supreme
initiation, however, that they learn it when placed face to face with the
bright "Image." How much has Bulwer Lytton known of this mystic fact when
describing, in one of his highest inspirational moods, Zanoni face to face
with his Augoeides?"

I have read the book you mentioned but didn't quite make it to the end.  I
was wondering about what you said is written there about the constellation
we die under being the constellation we are born under next time around.  It
may be that as far as the personality is concerned there is *some* truth in
your book.  For I imagine that when the body dies some Karmic record /
impression of the 'occult constitution' of the personality is retained so
that the reincarnating ego is born into the appropriate body and mental
characteristics comensurate with the state of the lower constitution at the
end of the previous incarnation.  So it might make sense if the astrological
influences were similar even if not completely identical.  What do you

Best wishes,
