I have frequently noted in studying well-documented reincarnation cases, that transiting Saturn is in hard contact with the natal North Node (conjunct, square or opposed) when a past life memory emerges — either consciously or subconsciously.
Here are a few fascinating case examples for study:
The Case of John Elliotson and Dr. Norm Shealy
Dr. Norm Shealy, a world famous neurosurgeon, inventor, writer and specialist in pain management, was born on December 4, 1932 in Columbia, South Carolina (birth time unknown).
In January 1972, at age 39, while attending a lecture at the Neuroelectric Society in Aspen, Colorado, he learned about his past life as John Elliotson, a 19th century British physician who was also a medical trendsetter and pain specialist (Elliotson was born October 24, 1791 in Southwark, London; birth time unknown; he died July 29, 1868).
When Shealy heard the lecturer Dr. William Kroger say, “In the last century a British physician demonstrated that you could operate on patients who were mesmerized. His name was John Elliotson,” Shealy said he felt as if someone had thrust an iceberg down his back and said to himself, “My God, that’s me.”
Immediately after, Shealy contacted a medical librarian to learn about John Elliotson but no information could be found. Hence in June 1972, Dr. Shealy traveled to London to research Elliotson’s life.
Upon his arrival, he was intuitively guided with the same “iceberg down his back” sensation to the University College Hospital of London where his office had been as John Elliotson. Shealy said that as soon as he walked into the building he felt at home.Transiting Saturn was square the natal North Node in June 1972.
Similarities in both lives highlight the reoccurrence of transiting Saturn to Shealy’s natal North Node:
John Elliotson had striking black curly hair and walked with a congenital limp. He was also the first physician in London who did away with wearing knickers.
Around the age of 4 or 5, Norm Shealy wanted black curly hair so badly that he cut off a lock of his aunt’s black hair. At that same age he also declared he was going to be a physician.
At age 9, Shealy refused to wear knickers and said he threw temper tantrums in rebellion. He also fractured his right tibia bone, which led to an infection. That’s when he was told that he would always walk with a limp. At age 9, transiting Saturn was square the natal North Node.
At age 16, Shealy dyed his hair black when he went off to college. He also said that this age was when he always thought he was going to be a neurosurgeon. At age 16, transiting Saturn was opposed the natal North Node.
John Elliotson graduated medical school at age 19. Norm Shealy entered medical school at age 19. Shealy went on to teach at Harvard and became a world renowned pain specialist, duplicating the professional direction of John Elliotson.
