Summary of Carol Parrish’s Story

Carol photo-3This is a more recent photo of Carol Parrish-Harra. The smile and warmth of this woman comes through her photo quite well.  

We have looked at several dated events and charts from Carol Parrish’s life story up until her visit to India.  The focus has been astrologically oriented.  Little discussion has been had relative to her healing work in Florida or her later establishment of a spiritual-religious town in Oklahoma called Sparrow Hawk.  Carol goes on to establish a number of branch churches about the country.  Sparrow Hawk is a healing community and is open to those seeking personal growth and help.

As we reviewed the various events and charts, as fascinating and descriptive as they were, we found that the Advanced chart for young Carol’s birth of her sixth daughter, and the arrival of the Successor-Carol, provided the “Goethe Conscious Awareness Profile’ pattern of planet placements and relationships that this blog series has been searching for.

Because this event where a “soul-swap” was made is so unusual from the earlier people and charts that have been examined, and also so different from those that we will be looking at in coming months, we need to carefully consider just what these charts have shown us.

  • The birth event of Carol’s sixth child, Nov. 1, 1958, was preceded by a t/Moon-to-n/Sun Return at the MC angle of the Return chart. This was most auspicious.  This Return chart was diurnally advanced from Oct. 19th to that date of giving birth.  It is this Advanced chart that marks the congruence with the Goethe Conscious Awareness Profile.
  • None of the other event-related charts examined provide the similarities that are defined by ‘Goethe Profile,’ not even the Blessing chart with Bobaji in India several years later.
  • An examination of that Nov. 1, 1958 birth chart for a little after 7 AM when the baby was born and the Successor Carol assumed the body and life of the young Carol showed not sign of matching the ‘Goethe Profile.’ This new Carol had already received her mission from the light-spirit and all of the support that she would need — she was already more consciously aware then most others might ever be.  Young Carol was rescued and brought into the light and care of the spirit world, most likely due to unconscious prior considerations.  It was her assumption of a ‘Conscious Awareness’ at that point in time that the chart reflects.

Let us review what young Carol’s chart shows us.  Both Carol’s natal and transiting Suns in this cyclic chart were near chart angles.  These represent days and times when we have our greatest power to shape our world view and situation.  The Return chart’s Moon was at the Descendant; this is her connection to her partner-successor soul.

The interlocking of t/Venus to n/Chiron, t/Chiron to n/Sun, and t/Sun trine n/Venus indicates decisions and guidance (Sun) in making adjustments to rectify past situations (Chiron) such that a form of harmony and balance (Venus) could be achieved.  This is a very appropriate interlocking pattern for this unique situation.

In this Advanced cyclic chart for Nov. 1, 1958 both the vertical axis and horizontal axis were populated and activated by planets.  This shows an involvement of the physical (feeling) world and mental (thinking-awareness) worlds, a necessary blending if one is to find true conscious awareness.

The other factors were discovered as applicable as I initially started researching more and more charts of those having Near Death Experiences, accidents, inspirations, Out of Body experiences, etc.  For example, the involvement of the natal and transiting Part of Fortune might be overlooked by many astrologers who seldom use it in modern practice.  Yet, it is an important measurement of the Sun-to-Moon relationship and how it might be fully expressed by the Ascendant.  This is especially true if the natal Ascendant has no planets.  The position and connection of the PoF is an important indicator of how we might seek or bring about changes in our life.  “Change” is also associated with Uranus.  The change that Uranus might bring is often associated with cognition and sudden clarity that seems instantly clear to us.  “Change” associated with the Part of Fortune is more likely to be felt and experienced as a change in what we encounter and experience, our life situation is changed or altered.

The effect of “doubled up” planets in a Return or cyclic chart was discovered early in my studies and formulation of workable methods with this charting approach.  Doubled-up planets add great emphasis to an interpretation and can often dominate the interpretation with their strength of expression.  The presence of Pluto, recently demoted from its “full” planet status, is a solid transformation indicator.  I have recently found Chiron to be very present in meaningful Return charts when adjustments are needed to show that one has dealt with past damages, crises and hurts of various kinds.  Chiron is so common in many of these charts that I have ascribed the keyword “adjustment” to Chiron.

And finally, we have to consider the presence of a past crises as a common part of any event or experience when one reaches conscious awareness.  Something is often required in human experience that conditions us to be open to spiritual truth at some key point when that is needed to serve our life’s purpose. 

These views are what guide us in this exploratory series.  Please take them to heart in your own astrological explorations.  Dave.

In our next blog we will move on to a more common experience for some of us,  An auto accident can lead to a range of injuries and experiences.  This next experience will be of a ‘milder’ but highly meaningful type.

Dave has been exploring cyclic astrology since the mid-1970's. CYCLIC astrology utilizes both Return charts and planetary-pair cycles for short-term prediction. These practices and four years of archived material are available for study or reading at A new book, Personal Prediction ISBN 978-9-615-63033-5, has been published and the MC-Solar Cycle technique is now supported through a recognized software provider so that all students and practicing astrologers can apply these techniques for their own use. Recently, Dave has been exploring a new charting format:, transiting Moon to natal Sun Return charts. These moon-sun returns show how see seek to maintain or deal with change in our lives. A book is expected to be released in 2015.
