Re: Theos-World Karma & Reincarnatio

Hello be it,

Regarding Karma, I am still surprised how may people fail to use 
astrology to analyse these things. Apart from the books mentioned, 
which I think may deal more with the spiritual side of reincarnation, 
I would recommend Nicolas Campion's BOOK OF WORLD HOROSCOPES or 
simply going to

Once you have the horoscope of the nation to be questioend move those 
static planets 1/365 of their normal speed and you'll see new aspects 
being formed, this is the "ideation" behind collective attitudes and 
events of the nations. For instance, USA and UK have bad aspects 
drawn up between Venus and the Sun which shows the current "spoilt" 
attitudes to sex, pornography and fashion as is used in the media.

For UK this bad Karma will wear its debt down and burn off for AD 
2033. For the USA this Karma is getting more troublesome and will be 
remarked about AD 2018. You can look into any nation and treat it 
similarly as human. Iraq I guess would have some interesting 
statistics too.

I would add a book called ENANTIODROME to be released next year by 
Godo Larner, this is more a psychoanalytic approach to Horoscopy-
Karma but is has a good cultural study. 

But why is it that nations have Karma? I understand the horoscope to 
be the symbol of totality, the centre being Atma and the peripheral 
planets the skandas and aggregates of the repesent life. The USA was 
born on July 4th 1776, but who or what reincarnated with a Karma that 
is punished with temptation these days?

Karma is a two edged sword as I understand, you have Parabdha Karma 
and Kriyamena Karma. The one is the seeds of the past life that had 
been placed in your mother's womb and has shaped your life and even 
physiology. Kriyamena Karma is created now and appears altruistic 
because we wont read it until the next life, Once we die and 
Prarabhda Karma has exhausted itself, Kriamena Karma will now 
transform to Parabdha Karma and enter a new womb. Both Parabdha and 
Kriyamena can be positive or negative.

Collectively what Kriyamena Karma can a nation create? (I mean as a 
body of people). First of all everyone has to agree on one objective 
before such virtue can be used by masses.....

Easier said than done when it comes to millions of people.  How many 
of us have seriously challenged our own internal warfare?  Jesus 
said, love one another, that hasn't helped.  The Buddha said all life
