Audio Only Version:

In this Cosmic Connection episode of the Astrology Hub Podcast, Astrologer Rick Merlin Levine and Amanda ‘Pua’ Walsh discuss Astrology and Reincarnation.

When you tune in, you will learn about the meaning of the word “reincarnation,” and why you can’t have reincarnation (birth) without first having ’dis-incarnation' (death). We also dive into hard questions like, “What are past lives?” “Do past lives exist? And how do they fit into the study of Astrology?” Learn about why you must understand Saturn and Pluto before you can understand reincarnation from an astrological perspective. We also explore the meaning of time, is it linear or is every moment, past, present, and future occurring at once?


It’s a value-packed episode! Here’s what we covered at a glance:
  • About the word death and the more appropriate label of “dis-incarnation.”
  • What the meaning of Saturn’s glyph is and Saturn’s role in the process of reincarnation.
  • Pluto’s facilitation of the “Phoenix rising from the ashes.”
  • Our understanding of linear time and how it limits our perception.


Also, Rick Levine shared his poem “Radios” with us! 

Planets talk;

their cosmic discourse

determines the fate

of vulnerable babes;


Each armed with a few trillion tiny cellular receptors


Each cell with its calibrated micro-antennae

tuned into the emptiness

of deep space

and infinite time.


Planets talk;

their discordant orbital harmonies

shout with power of Wagner,

resonate with intensity of Stravinsky,

chant with the mystery of Grieg,

orchestrate with the majesty of Tchaikovsky,

vibrate with the magic of chanting Gyuto monks.


Planets talk;

their spherical vibrations

pulsate ultra-low frequencies of life;

electromagnetic waves

broadcast unique moments

of patterned universality,

while mysterious, invisible rays

from omnipresent space and time

make magic here on Earth.


Meanwhile, with naive determination

I carefully disassemble my radio

looking for the music inside;


Frustration builds

for I find only pieces of mechanical things.

I cannot find even one tiny shred of evidence

of the wondrous symphony

that moments before

came from within this plastic shell.


Printed circuits of resistors and capacitors,

semiconductors, and wires:

these magical artifacts offer no clues;


This electro-mechanical universe

is not a map that points the way

to the magic of song.


Elsewhere, with the very same determination

scientists dissect animals

looking for the source of life,

and take apart the human mind

searching for the phantom captain,

while the obvious truth

is staring us in the face:


Life is everywhere

and consciousness does not

originate within the brain.


Plants and animals are bioradios

optimized to receive the broadcasts of life;

our nervous systems

are energy transformers;

our electro-chemical brains

are organic televisions,

each playing its own variation

of the inter-planetary music of the spheres,

each playing its unique pattern

of cosmic consciousness.


When the radio breaks

the broadcast station

does not go off the air.

    What a fantastic episode! He’s so fascinating!
    I’ve done past life regression many times, and now I feel it’s appropriate to frame it in a new way for myself. Nothing at all seems as set in stone as it was. My lives as I understood them: nun, monk, soldier, calligrapher/scholar/ woodcutter/Indigenous person of the American Southwest. Etc. I admit to feeling a bit disappointed that these lives perhaps weren’t “my” discrete and consecutive past lives. Maybe I just moved through them or they moved through me. But I suspect the way Rick Levine talked about “reincarnation” is closer to the truth than what I envisioned. Con carne! Brilliant! The entire episode was an intellectual and spiritual thrill!

    I’ve long wondered whether the human brain is not more of a radio receiver, rather than a container that, among other things, stores stuff.
    Very excited that someone of the stature of Rick Levine believes something similar!
