Uncover Your Past Lives Oracle – Online Reading App

This deck was created for healing purposes. As such, these cards describe many different types of past lives, including those which might be connected with trauma or experiences (good and bad) that we may have reincarnated to heal. In some cases, cards drawn cold represent something symbolic or archetypal in nature as opposed to a past life. To use the spreads below, clear your mind and then ask your High Self what past life or archetypal pattern you would most benefit to focus on, or which lies beneath a particular issue or condition. Then, click the card backs to reveal your cards.

Servant 2

Servant

Other: You may have been another type of servant in a past life. Look to other cards to grasp what your role may have been and whether you were paid, worked for free, or performed indentured service.

Archetype: Where have you made your life purpose service to others? What are you receiving in return for playing this role? Are you fairly compensated for the energy you expend, or is playing this role draining you?

Child Care:In a past life, you may have served as a governess, nanny, tutor, or some other role involving taking care of children. Possibly, you cohabitated with your employer and conformed to a hierarchical structure within the home.

Archetype: Where do you feel you are babysitting after others, dealing with other’s immaturity, or taking care of someone because they can’t properly take care of themselves? What type of benefits do you receive from playing this role?

Technology 2

Technology

Technological Disaster: In a past life, you may have been part of a society that experienced a disaster created by technology (such as a nuclear bombing, industrial accident, experiment that went wrong, military disaster, or something similar).

Archetype: A dream, relationship, or project that you were trying to make progress with might have collapsed or imploded. Perhaps this happened because you cut corners, ignored warning signs, or acted in a way in which you failed to see how others could get hurt. Alternatively, you or someone you are close to is known for their temper. Perhaps someone went “nuclear” in an argument, or there was a toxic spill of emotions

Technological Progress: In a past life, you may have been part of a society that experienced technological progress. Perhaps you played a role with that progress through helping to develop useful gadgets, machinery, weapons, vehicles, or utilities.

Archetype: You’re a logical, intelligent person who works according to a system to achieve a goal. Through taking one step at a time, and focusing on improvement, you evolve and grow.

Timeframe - Early Bronze Age

Timeframe

Early Bronze Age: The Early Bronze Age lasted from approximately 3300 to 2000 BC (different civilizations entered the Bronze Age at different periods) and witnessed the end of the stone age. This period saw the construction of Stonehenge and the pyramids, the first dynasty of Egypt, the use of papyrus, and the Minoan, Sumer, Ancient Greek, and Indus civilizations.[1] Large scale civilizations began arising under a centralized government. There was the rise of trade and the spread of ideas. This period also marks a time when humans began to work with metals. Tin was combined with copper to make bronze.[2]

The “Love Interest” card represents who  your love interest was in a past life with you (which may be affecting them or your relationship now).  The past life lesson, is the lesson you were supposed to learn in relationship to your past life with your love interest (or a lesson you were meant to learn together). The current lesson is what you are meant to learn in the current time frame.

Wild West

Wild West

Other: You may have played a role in the shaping of the American Frontier that differed from what was mentioned above. For instance, you may have been a business owner, schoolteacher, mayor, or something else outside the “cowboy” definition. For some, this card can indicate living outside the Wild West but still playing a role in colonizing a country or area. See surrounding cards for whether you were a slave, wealthy plantation owner, indigenous person, or involved in a war (such as the American War of Independence or Civil War).

Archetype: You’re a go-getter who isn’t afraid of a challenge. You like to be involved in helping to build a community or make it better. You need freedom in your life and the opportunity to experiment with new ways of living or thinking.

Settler: In a past life, you may have been an early settler or pioneer of the American Frontier. As such, you may have lived in a cabin or ranch, rode horseback, and performed hard labor (such as tending to the land or daily chores). If not the American Frontier, it may have been another location that was untamed and uninhabited.

Archetype: You love being domesticated or settled in a relationship. For you, if a loved one is a little wild or untamed, it isn’t a deterrent. You tend to have a grounding and stabilizing effect on others.

Revolution

Revolution

Proletariat: In a previous life, you may have been a member of the working class during a social or political revolution.[1] See surrounding cards to determine whether you were actively involved or a bystander.

Archetype: You’re a diligent and hard-working person who doesn’t always feel appreciated for your efforts or service. You may hold resentment toward a boss you work for or those of wealth and standing.
———————

[1] Some revolutions (like the French, Russian, and Chinese Revolutions) sought the establishment of more equality between the working classes and the wealthy. The working class rose up against the wealthy to see that they lost their power or status, or were dispossessed.

Wealthy Elite: In a previous life, you may have been part of the upper class during a revolution or reign of terror.[1] Perhaps you endured persecution, were put to death, fled the country, or gave up a lot of your wealth to protect yourself.

Archetype: Money, success, or recognition may come easy for you. However, this could cause those around you who feel less successful or noticed to feel envious or resentful. It may be hard for you to feel supported in your successes, or you may live with the fear that others want to bring you down.

Timeframe - Early Modern Age

Timeframe

Early Modern Age: The Early Modern Age covers a period in Europe that lasts from 1450 to 1750 and includes the Renaissance period, Age of Discovery, Commercial Revolution, and Golden Age of Piracy. It starts after the Middle Ages and ends around the time of the French Revolution. This period marks a time of population increase, globalization, and changes for women in the workplace. Women also began marrying later (as opposed to marrying soon after entering puberty). Women were also closer in age to their husbands.

Protestantism and Catholicism each demanded uniformity, and there was a spread of Christianity through the colonization of the Americas. This age saw the decline of Feudalism and the end of the crusades and the European Wars of Religion.[2] However, the inquisition was still on-going, as was a rise in heterodoxy, witch-phobia, and the belief in magic and witchcraft (which became widespread). In 1486, the Hammer of Witches (aka the Malleus Maleficarum by Heinrich Kramer) was written.[3] The church embarked on a witch hunt in Europe and the Salem Witch Trials in the New World. Those who suffered mental disorders, or who were rural healers, midwives, or non-conformists, endured persecution. Jews faced lowered status and discrimination. The Black Death occurred during this age, as well.

Breathing Room

Breathing Room

Upright: If your question involves a relationship, this card can indicate that you or a love interest may feel supported or given the space, time, or breathing room they need to feel free. If the relationship is romantic, perhaps it has a casual, non-possessive, or easy-going energy.

Similarly, if your question involves a work situation, it could be that a boss or colleague supports your need to do your own thing in your own way. With your finances, perhaps you’re about to be approved for a loan, or the buffer or windfall you need to feel a sense of financial freedom materializes.

If your question involves your health and spiritual growth, consider dedicating time to breathwork or a form of mindfulness meditation that focuses on your breathing.

Reversed: You or someone you’re involved with may need more room to breathe or feels smothered. Perhaps one of you simply needs to be allowed the space to do his or her own thing without feeling his or her every move is being monitored. If this is an ongoing rather than a temporary issue, it could indicate there are deeper problems within a relationship—such as jealousy, codependency, or control issues.

If you’re the one who’s smothering another, perhaps it’s time to get a hobby or to become more independent or self-sufficient. Hovering over another person and needing too much of their time or reassurance could push them away or make you appear bossy.

If your issue involves money, you could be feeling a lack of financial ease. Perhaps a loan doesn’t come through as you’d hoped, or you’re living day by day, unsure from one month to the next if you’ll have enough to pay the rent. If so, it might be time to get your situation under control or to find ways to live within your means.

WHAT ARE YOU HANGING ONTO FROM THIS PAST LIFE?

Time to Fly South

Time to Fly South

Upright: If you’ve been dealing with harsh or stressful bosses, coworkers, or work conditions, perhaps you’d benefit from taking time off from work to get away for a while, particularly if it involves migrating somewhere which you can enjoy a warmer, more hospitable climate. Or maybe you or someone you care about will soon be taking a work- or school-related trip out of town.

If your question involves a relationship, possibly you decide to go on a vacation with your lover, or you’ll sleepover at his or her residence. If your situation is one where you or a love interest has left home after an argument and is seeking shelter somewhere else, it’s likely this new situation will be temporary, not permanent.

For some who draw this card, your home could represent the warm place that another person(s) is migrating toward. This would be the case if you take in visitors from out of town or provide a place to stay for someone experiencing difficulties.

Reversed: Have you desired to migrate or travel to a warmer or more hospitable location but felt restricted from doing so? Maybe fear of leaving a job, relationship, or other situation (even temporarily) is blocking you.

If your question involves work, perhaps a business trip is canceled, a job interview that required going out of town is delayed, or you’re unable to take time off to go on vacation. With a relationship, perhaps a romantic trip or visit is canceled, plans to separate are delayed, or someone returns home after being away. If you were expecting a visit from a friend or family member, it could be that plans fall through or are delayed for the time being.

Overall, it appears that whether you planned to travel somewhere or to take visitors in, you may experience blocks to bringing such plans to fruition.

HOW CAN YOU HEAL AND MOVE FORWARD?

Shuffle
Pick Up Your Sword

Pick Up Your Sword

Upright: The appearance of this card may be calling for you to speak up or put up a fight when it comes to something important to you. This could involve pursuing an idea or project that you believe in, standing up for an important cause, or being able to express your concerns or feelings with someone you care about. Try not to let an important conversation or idea drop because you’re afraid it would be too difficult or would make someone uncomfortable. Don’t give up on a good thing too soon, even if it will require you to do what isn’t necessarily easy! In the case you don’t feel supported or that others believe in what you’re attempting to achieve, trust that you can still believe in yourself!

Reversed: Has a legal conflict, argument, or troubling circumstance sent you into a rage? Has it caused you to lose sense of how to advocate for yourself, or fight for something you believe in, with dignity and integrity? Or, conversely, do you have an opportunity to stand up for something honorable, but instead, you feel like giving up?

If the latter, perhaps feelings of weakness, passive conformity, or worry over what others think prevailed over the courage to speak the truth, illuminate others, or stand up for something meaningful. Hopefully, an injustice was not enabled. However, injustice can also become enabled through making a decision to fight dirty or to lower oneself to another’s level.

Therefore, this card in this position offers the encouragement that if you need to take a stand for something important, you’re asked to be brave and to continue the good fight, but without allowing your emotions or reactions to become too aggressive or chaotic. Stand in your power and speak your truth from a place of centeredness, fairness, and justness. Trust that you have the ability to fight this kind of fight and, more importantly, to fight it with integrity.
