“From Cayce’s perspective, the topic of soul mates was not one of simply a physical or a sexual attraction; instead it was a relationship inextricably linked to an individual’s own process of spiritual evolution and growth.” Kevin Todeschi, Edgar Cayce on Soul Mates
Edgar Cayce gave approximately 2000 readings that included astrological information. His readings suggest that your relationship choices enable you to work on your karmic patterns so that you can grow and evolve into those spiritual beings you are meant to be.
This eGroup will help you to explore your relationships as they are described by your own horoscope and the horoscope of your partner. You will examine the portions of your own horoscope that reflect the “tendencies and inclinations” influencing your relationship choices and what you need in a relationship. You will also have the opportunity to compare your planetary placements with those found in your partner’s horoscope. In this way the harmonious as well as the challenging areas can be studied and accepted as part of the karmic patterns embedded in the relationship from which you have the opportunity to grow.
You will gain more understanding of:

What's an e-Group?
Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet on an Internet discussion board. This discussion board has been created especially for A.R.E. by BulletinBoards.com, a secure Internet site that makes learning online interactive and easy. In Internet terms, your eGroup is called a "discussion board", a virtual meeting room where you will join with other like-minded people and your mentor, Raye Mathis, in an interactive discussion on Relationship Astrology.
In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio/video materials prepared for you by Raye. Every Wednesday, she will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for Raye and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by Raye to individuals.
Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send you an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate our discussion board for the eGroup Explore Your Relationships Using Astrology as Your Guide. Then, you're in! You will be able to visit your eGroup any time you desire. The meeting room is accessible 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and you may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.
In this personalized reading with Raye you will receive an interpretation of your natal chart, along with current patterns (transits and progressions) for the coming year. The natal consultation illuminates your potential talents and skills in all areas of your life, as well as the major life issues and karmic patterns you chose to work on this lifetime. Current patterns are based on the cycles of the planets and provide you with the timing and transformational nature of the transition periods in effect during this moment in your life. A personal discussion allows us to clarify specific problem areas as well as synthesize the many facets of your horoscope. The consultation is by phone and a CD recording of the conversation will be mailed to you afterward.
