The “Double Diurnal” chart

Possible Carol photo-4

This may be a photo of Carol Parrish when she was younger, although perhaps older than when she gave birth to her sixth child and died while another ‘Carol’ entered as a ‘walk-in soul.’  There are few photos on the Internet of Carol other than those recent ones where she has been active in her church and counseling work.

In this blog post we are still dealing with this very unusual situation where a worn out, dispirited Carol returned to the spirit world and another soul who was better prepared to complete her life mission entered her body — and picked up her life at that moment.  This phenomena is called by Ruth Montgomery a “walk in.”   With a profound sense of mission, with preparation, and support — plus an awareness or recall of what she was given and encouraged to undertake — this Carol entered a body, picked up on a shattered life, acclimated herself, and proceeded to fulfill a mission.

To achieve a better astrological understanding of this remarkable event, we will be looking (again) at the Advanced chart for Nov. 1st, 1958.  This chart is both a “death” chart for young Carol and a “birth chart” for the new Carol.  Since this is a cyclic chart for this date, the calculated time-date for the cycle does not happen to be the same time as the actual “walk in” experience where the new Carol entered the body.  Note the chart calculation time of 5:54:50 PM for Nov. 1st, 1958.

The actual ‘walk in’ occurred near 7:20 AM, some 11-plus hours earlier.  To view this ‘actual time’ chart from within the cyclic flow of time, we must move the time earlier in the day to the early morning hour.  First, the 5:54 PM chart:


Within the center of this chart I have placed some clock-hands positioned to represent the time, 5:54 PM.  Note that the transiting Sun (circle with a dot) is in the inner ring/wheel in a late afternoon position.  This chart is the calculated time of the chart as it relates to the Return chart.  The actual “death” and countering “walk in” of a replacement soul occurred around 7:20 AM.  Like a clock, we can back up this chart — as is suggested by turning the hour had back from its almost 6 PM position, as is indicated by the dotted line.

As we keep backing up the hour hand, pretend that we are also backing up the Earth itself.  The round clock and the movement of the hour hand was all inspired by the Sun moving across the Earth’s sky.  Since we want to see this particular t/Moon-to-n/Sun cycle earlier in the day, we grab the hour hand and drag it backwards towards noon and then down to the 7th hour of the morning.  This is shown in the chart below.


Now, here we are.  We have backed up the chart until it reflects time at 7:20 AM.  Note that the chart is almost reversed, having backed up almost a full 12 hours.  Note also that the Moon is now some six degrees earlier in the zodiac at 2 Cancer.

Let us review what we have done.  We had a Moon-to-Sun Return chart wherein the transiting Moon exactly coincided with the natal Sun’s position.  We then ‘diurnally’ advanced the Return chart on a day-by-day basis, advancing the chart at the same rate of daily motions as the Sun has each day.  Having arrived at our ‘event’ date of Nov. 1, 1958, we will now retard or back up the calculated chart time so that it matches the ‘walk-in’ time of 7:20 AM.

In the next posting, we will start to examine the first chart as both a ‘death’ chart and as a ‘birth’ chart for the new Carol who replaced to old Carol.  If there are any questions do not hesitate to comment.   Dave.

PS if anyone has a source for actual photos of the young Carol(s), I would appreciate having them to use on this blog site.  There is a scarcity of them on the Internet.
