Svaguna – appropriate 

«The embodied soul, by means of good and evil deeds committed by itself, assumes many forms, coarse and fine. By virtue of its actions and also of such characteristics of the mind as knowledge and desire, it assumes another body for the enjoyment of suitable objects» (Śvetāśvatara-upanishad, 5.12).

In the Hindu tradition, rebirth is a basic concept. The yogis try to get out of the cycle of births, because according to them life is suffering, all the others try their best to be reborn in better conditions than today. What is taken for granted is that the condition of the new life is based on the svaguna of the current life, that is the qualities and ways of existing of this life. Svaguna is translated as “one’s own merits” and “appropriate” too. The next life is appropriate with respect to what remains to be learned in this life.

The great changes are not only the external ones and you can be reborn a hundred times even in a single life. A move, a new job or a separation have a great impact on the practical and psychic life, but there are hidden and profound changes, which take place over a certain period and which show their effects only after time.

This seems to me to be your case, Gemini. There is something that you are maturing inside of you, which works on your memories, on karma and which serves to heal old scars. In this phase, you can slowly renew yourself and emerge into a new you. You will see the effects of this change in a few years, but this is the key moment!
