Virgo 17-18 An Ouija Board

My friend Ariel has the following insights about this degree:
I have Uranus on this degree, which was a point in my chart I thought I had no feeling on, until I started meditating upon it.
Firstly I had to google ouija board, and the photograph I found on Wikipedia was of a square board. I realised that in my mind I thought the board was round. In the photographs I came across they were all square with numbers and the alphabet.
In my mind I had conjured up scenes of dark rooms, expecting minds waiting to be lured into the realms beyond their everyday thoughts. Pulses palpating, beating faster than normal and the air still, as if waiting quietly would assist them into hearing if not seeing spirits beyond the worlds. Perhaps I have had past lives with ouija boards or maybe a fear of them and the people whom conjure the spirits.
My ouija board was astrology, oracle decks and meditating.
When I was a child I often awoke to "people" gathering around my bed with trays of drinks and food, which I once discussed with my daughter and she informed me that yes she often had the same experience. (We have opposing Venus: 14 - 15 degrees Cancer (A Group Of People Who Have Overeaten And Enjoyed It)
/Capricorn (Many Toys In The Children's Ward Of A Hospital) and as an aside, my Mercury in Leo 1-2 (An Epidemic Of Mumps) oppose her Sun Aquarius 1-2 (An Unexpected Thunderstorm)).
I had an experience, whilst working in a spiritual shop, of a young teenager that had been partying with his mates (drinking, smoking dope) the previous night and dabbling in the ouija board. He was literally petrified, pale sweating and hyperventilating. To my surprise the clairvoyants working there encouraged his hysteria, filling him with ideas of spirits and worlds he had apparantly unknowingly opened.
This increased his already hypersenstivity and his wallet became considerably less after he had purchased their remedies. This boy was having a drug induced paranoia from the previous night, which I had seen often as a nurse. I left that job not long after this episode.
Ouija boards are for me an opening into the layers of the genetic subconscious, of what we carry within our DNA from previous lives and lives of our heritage.
My thoughts on life and death are that they are interlinked, our lives are shaped by our ancestors and transformed by our life into new vessels to be tapped by spirit.
We as human beings are living ouija boards.
