Hey ptv, as you probably noticed, the precessional Ages are one of my favorite topics.
As far as you know, did Edgar Cayce have anything to say about Vedic astrology?
Other than bringing up the subject of Karma and confirming that it does exist, along with reincarnation, and answering a direct question as to whether Sri Rama ever did exist, which He did confirm, and said that it was [best as my memory serves me at the moment] 198,000 years ago [or He may have said 198,000 B.C., but I'm rather sure it was the former] I can't think of anything else He ever said that had anything to do with Vedic knowledge and philosophy. I don't recall ever coming across a reading in which he made any mention of Vedic astrology either. Although I've never read every single reading he ever gave and only approximately two thirds of the readings have ever been made public.
However he did speak of Zoroaster a number of times and of other ancient civilizations. He did speak of the civilization that existed on the lost continent of Atlantis and that of Lemuria, and Mu, and Oz and that those three were all about another lost land that existed in the region of where the Pacific Ocean is presently and that those three all preceded one another. Oz, I think I recall, having been said to be the oldest. Those three also existed prior to Atlantis and I think it was implied that at least Oz and Mu were even prior to the Adamic races of humankind.
I've had at least five copies of the book on Cayce's readings that have to to with the origin and destiny of mankind, yet I'm without one presently and haven't had a copy in nearly ten years. So I can't say what land it was where the "Adam an Eve" of the "Brown" race originated from but I do know that it was a continent in the Pacific and I want to say that it was identified as Lemuria. That continent was destroyed long before Atlantis was and it was done as for the reason it had turned to wrongful practices and the worship of a "false god"... likely Baal, but possible by some other name.
The "Brown" race, last I heard, is believed to have become extinct, in so far as there being anyone left of pure ancestry, except for the belief of some anthropologists that the Aboriginals of the South Pacific might possibly be just that, and all that is left. I have often wondered if the Dravidian's, that are presently in South and Eastern India and in Sri Lanka, are a remnant of the Lemurians, or that the Veddas of Sri Lanka might possibly be.
One other thing i should mention about Sri Rama and what Mr. Cayce said about him is that a number of the stories that exist at present attributed to Sri Rama are actually accounts about others that had the same name, Ram, that came afterward, but over time they all got attributed to Sri Rama.
While I am of Quaker upbringing [11th generation] and do so identify myself of that faith, [although ''Free Quaker" since 1778, and having thus been shunned by all others since that time I am of the "old school", "Waiting Worship" variety, which is the original form of the belief.] I do consider myself a Christian, but I am also of the Sanatan Dharm as I have been a yogi since August 1968, a sishya of the bij, OM, as only the word of God is my satguru, Yet, it is by the benevolent grace and intercession of Sri Rama whom gave me my greatest revelation OM Sri Rama Hare Hare Rama OM OM OM.
Yet, I have found little of any usefulness to date in Jyotish astrology, nothing at all in that of the Chinese [but I'm not saying that there isn't more to the Jotish or that there isn't any in that of the Chinese, but I've got my plate full with this of the Occidental and that is my given sadhana, to rectify what the European cultures have been practicing] yet I have found that the I Ching is quite genuinely effective a means of an oracle, although extremely difficult to translate, to understand, by my Occidental oriented mind. I haven't used it in years, and have found the Sabian Symbols to be a very effective oracle and far easier for me to comprehend, but the I Ching does work, that I know without any doubts.
But, I should also add that i'm primarily involved with natal astrology, the dabbling with the mundane is very new to me still and I've heard that Jyotish is more accurate to the mundane practices. as which is better at interpreting natal, I know from personal experience, at least with those that practice Jyotish and are members of this forum, that i found Occidental astrology, with great assistance of that refined and rectified by Rudhyar, to be far more insightful and perceptive, That can be understood by reading the thread I post a number of years ago in the Jyotish subforum about a Sikh child born around the turn of the century of whose father I met and got to know that produced a video he had taken of the child celebrating a Christmas and opening presents in which an apparition of Guru Nanak reading the Granth appeared in the fire in the hearth next to the child and the child noting the presence of the apparition without even looking at it. My, late, yogi friend Suryakant witnessed the video at the same time as I did and we both agreed that it was undoubtedly Guru Nanak. what I see in the childs' horoscope apparently couldn't be seen by the Jyotish practicing members. I recall one or two members conceding that they may have seen some potentially notable future for the boy, but that child, now a man, has quite the destiny ahead of him. It was later confirmed by my clairvoyant friend, Clarisse Conner, as to the same. I could only give the chart with all birth data erased, but that shouldn't have been too much, if any, hindrance to those of the Jyotish school. So, what does that tell you... but I should ad that without the use of the Sabian symbols I probably wouldn't have seen too much going for the boy.
It's the same thing with the natal chart I produced, contend, and am convinced of is the natal horoscope of Yeshu'a/Jesus of Nazareth, that is, without the use of Sabian Symbology I, nor probably anyone else, would ever be convinced of its veracity.
Rumors have it that He gave a reading for at least one president and that the others being withheld include readings given for other very influential folks and likely those readings will never come to light, or at least not in our lifetimes. That may be because it was stipulated by the party asking for the reading and was agreed to by Mr. Cayce and there may have been some readings that revealed information that gave cause afterward to be thought to be too sensitive, too upsetting, or just too fantastic, for the general public to be able to handle? That portion of unreleased readings comprise almost one third of the total of given readings by Edgar Cayce. Who knows if any mentions were made as to astrology and that of the Vedic/Jyotish variety?
You might want to get a copy of Margaret Gammond's book on Edgar Cayce and Astrology? I have one as I inherited from my parents, it may make some mention of Vedic astrology. But I can't say I remember reading of any, but I've never read the book from cover to cover either.
You might also consider emailing/writing to the A.R.E. and asking that question, as they are very helpful and always write back in return. If you get lucky your correspondence may be read by someone highly knowledgeable of the readings and get an immediate answer. If not they probably will "kick it upstairs" and you'll get an answer to the question before too long.
Keep in mind that it was reveled that Saint Germain, and, or some other member of the Great white Brotherhood [aka the White Lodge] was usually speaking through Edgar and that Dane Rudhyar was taken under the wing of Annie Besant and the West Coast branch of the Theosophical Society, and that Annie got Dane to study astrology and published his first book on the subject, and that Saint Germain was very influential upon that organization. I have found a tremendous amount of evidence that the Great White Brotherhood was influential in the works of Dane Rudhyar. Annie Besant spent a good many years in India yet she didn't have Dane study Jyotish astrology. What does that tell you?
