Imagine if there existed a way for a person to have control over his thoughts, being able to not only entertain a foreign thought, but to partake of it, and completely immerse himself in it for a perceptible period of time. This would inevitably bring greater understanding in the belief, and the reasons for it, and therefore in people.

It is possible. I do it all the time! But how does a non-practitioner of this art distinguish it from (your typical suggestion) being so open-minded that their brains have fallen out? Not that it matters

You can have one personality that is closed-minded about astrology and another personality that is open-minded about astrology to see both sides of it. This sometimes naturally happens with enthusiastic conversions, but you may enforce it with some kind of control and reinforcement, say making yourself bleed whenever you experience doubt.

Among the people I do reading for are those who are stuck with Sun signs. I don't really know how to explain to them that their charts have more than just their Sun.
I use a clock analogy. The Sun is very important, but it's just one hand of the clock, which isn't accurate enough.

Reincarnation as in, "reborn again" is a concept from the indian region. Problem is people mix the resurrection of Christ with reincarnation, which wouldn't be the same. The case of the resurrection is a special ocasion because, in christian belief, he is the son of God and thus rose again from death. Resurrection would also be a continuation of your life (that was put to a stop by death) whether on this world or in the underworld ("Heaven" for christians), while reincarnation means being born again new and starting over.
"Reincarnation" is singular. Only has to happen once to qualify. Also, starting over with a new body, which is what the word itself means, can include retaining memory and personality.

We are good Christian people. Don't try to sell us that lie of Satan - reincarnation.

One thing I learned about Virgo Suns is, they feel unappreciated and on-their-own, but they're generally too polite and fatalistic to complain about it. I do have my Descendant there, which I believe helps me understand my opposite Sun-sign.

Does Amazon have those? I see they are available on-line, along with "renaissance wax" to keep them polished!
Musketeers were known for carrying muskets as well as narrow-bladed rapiers.

I donít think so but I posted a link to the sword Iíve placed an order for. Itís out of stock so could take months. But I also found a shield that will protect my torso that I can hold in my right hand (protecting my right wrist which has previously been broken), most of the weight goes on the arm strap and it even has a detachable spike in the middle.

Are you into fencing? If so, what type of sword have you used?

Itís for home protection. Iíll probs hang it up inside my wardrobe in case anyone tries to break into my door, the idea is Iíll not need to use it if a robber sees me armed like that.

Nothingís happened to make me feel this way, except for taking the past life memory as a clue to what an upcoming Pluto and Saturn sharing Sun transit might mean for me. Possible enemies because of link to 7th house.

David, what sign do you find the most difficult to relate to? I find Taurus the most difficult to relate to, mainly because the sign holds so few prominent traits. I mean, you can sum up other signs pretty easily. You have Aries as the fireball warrior, Gemini as the dual communicator, Cancer the moody mother, Leo the bright sun, Virgo the analytical servant, Libra the indecisive peacemaker, Scorpio the passionate detective, Sagittarius the adventurous preacher, Capricorn the ambitious pessimist, Aquarius the callous revolutionist, and Pisces the spiritual dreamer. All signs are heading for a definite purpose. But Taurus? Apart from the few keywords, what's more to it? It's pretty strange considering that I have Taurus Venus and 2H Sun and Merc.

I should probably equip myself with a shield if I was to enter your house
