Medical Astrology is a fascinating, timeless subject of antiquity that has unfortunately lost its value in the wake of chemical (allopathic) medicine. While almost everyone knows his or her astrological Sun sign from their month and date of birth, they are not generally familiar with the personal characteristics associated with it, dietary and hygienic measures to be advised, and even preventative measures it provides to preserve, regain, or maintain one's health. Historically, the two oldest sciences of man's history are astrology and herbalism. In a rare book uncovered from the English archives on medical astrology, it was stated that as late as the 1700's, those who entered the profession as "doctor of medicine", either in England or other European countries, were obliged to pass an astrological examination. And if the candidate was found deficient in the knowledge of medical astrology, the individual was deemed unfit to practice medicine!
The usefulness of medical astrology, today, does not have to be restricted to doctors of medicine. Thanks to computers and the science of astronomy, those who turn their interest into more understanding and the application of medical astrology will gain some truly unique insights about themselves and others.
KEYNOTES TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN READING THIS REPORT
The purpose of medical astrology is to find and prevent conditions and disorders. Just as a doctor will look at a blood chemistry report to gain an insight to diagnosis, so the medical astrologer looks at a birth or nativity map (horoscope) to gain an insight as well. The horoscope does not diagnose, rather it provides an insight into the constitution of the native, whether strong or weak, the healing potential, the metabolism whether normal, fast or sluggish, and pathological tendencies. It provides general insights which are then modified by the native's heredity, early childhood, and environmental factors (weather, climate, exposure to radiation, toxic waste, trauma, accidents, etc.). It also provides an insight into the general psychology of the native and if psychosomatic illness could be present. Further, based on Hindu and Tibetan philosophy, the horoscope can also show past life potentials and whether past events have been carried over into this life.
There are many types of astrology and the individual has the freedom to choose that which is of benefit. Predictive astrology deals with mundane factors, like timing events, predicting financial gain or loss, when to start or end events, etc. Judicial astrology deals with positions of the planets with respect to entire populations and was reportedly used by former President Roosevelt. Astro-Meteorology deals with weather forecasting and has been in use since the beginning of man's history and is still reported today in the Almanac. Medical Astrology is of course, the purpose of this report.
Sometimes you will have a condition or unusual symptoms that are not seen in the chart or by this report, but you will generally find the cause. For example, you may have beginning pains in the joints which a homeopath would classify as rheumatic or arthritic in nature. The chart shows Saturn in Libra indicating sluggish kidneys and slowed down filtration of its blood toxins. The arthritic pains come and go depending upon your diet and lifestyle, i.e. when fasting or drinking pure water the native's pains are reduced or eliminated, when eating during the holidays or rich foods, the pains are increased. Diagnosis is thus weakened kidneys, and the treatment is by detoxification, and long term management is to eat lessened amounts of protein, avoiding hard cheeses, hard water, salt, and rich meats which clog the kidneys with protein overload.

1. WHAT IS MEANT BY ONE'S ASTROLOGICAL SIGN?
As the Earth rotates around the Sun, against the background of the stars of the night sky, the entire circumference is divided into twelve sections of orbital view known as the zodiac. When people refer to their astrological sign, they are merely stating which sign of the zodiac the Sun was in when they were born. This composes a relatively stable frame of reference along a horizontal plane called the ecliptic. The zodiac may be conceived of as a fixed pattern of stars, in terms of twelve divisions of the Earth's orbit.
In dealing with Medical Astrology, we must understand that the twelve signs of the zodiac equate to twelve major parts of the body, each separate part being under the dominion or ruled over by one of the twelve zodiacal signs. For example, Aries rules over the head and face, Taurus rules over the neck and throat, Cancer over of the breasts and chest. The placement of any planet, as it travels through the zodiac in its orbital path, represents the mode or type of energy the zodiac is under influence. For example, the Sun in the zodiac represents vitality. If in Aries, during the spring, the head region is energized, ideas abound, the outlook is promising. If however, Mars is in Aries as well at that time, the Sun is called "combust" with Martian energy, which translates into dynamic action, if not anger, headaches, and inflammations for any part of the head. This is referred to as planetary action.
Person-centered astrology deals with two essential features:
a) The basic geometrical structure of the space in which the person was centered at birth.
b) All celestial bodies which passed through your body and time in ever varying relationships or "aspects", also called planetary angles. In this sense, the individual person is the most important dynamic in terms to relationship to the environment.
The natal chart is fundamental, it is the "promise" given at birth, progressed planets as they slowly change through life sets the stage for change - adaptation or maladaptation; and the current location of the planets as they move over positions in your natal chart indicates the type of stress factors that times the actual events or illness. Thus, the natal chart is the most important chart to begin your studies in medical astrology. It is the core chart from which all interpretations are based.
The natal horoscope also deals with a vertical line of reference known as the horizon or "meridian". When a human being is born he/she is surrounded on all sides by celestial bodies, visible in the sky, or invisible below the horizon. He/she has a vertebral spine that points towards the sky as an activity to daily relationship to the external environment as the Earth rotates on its own axis. The vertical lines, running from pole to pole, are divided into twelve houses, marked by an Ascendant, or time of sunrise, and a Descendant, or time of sunset.
Zodiacal signs (horizontal) and houses (vertical) represent two fundamentally different sets of values and interpretations. The horizontal axis of the zodiac signs represents consciousness and anatomical organ localities (called rulerships), while the vertical-house axis represents power or expression on the physical plane and environmental factors that affects one's health.
In terms of health, the first point of reference is to study the Sun's location and its aspects to the other planets. Electronically speaking, the Sun sign represents the amount of VOLTAGE the body is able to produce. In fire signs the Sun is at its peak and burns the brightest. Secondly in air signs, the Sun burns well, for if there is no air (oxygen) there is no fire. Water is more condensed and puts out fire as the Sun is weak in these elemental signs, especially in Cancer and Pisces. The earth signs, which represent the densest matter, confers more tenacity than vitality, as they receive and give energy more slowly, as in the burning of coal - it takes eons to form, is hard to light, but once lit, it burns for a long time. The signs are as follows:
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
The Moon controls the body amperage, or rate of flow, its rhythmic or unrhythmic energy movements. The third important consideration is the Ascendant or location of the sunrise meridian at your time of birth. Thus, for example, in electricity you have three factors - 1. voltage or electron mass, 2. amperage - rate of flow in time, and 3. resistance through the material conducting the electricity. In this case, the Ascendant represents the resistance or conductivity to the energy of the Sun and Moon. So in the body you have metabolism of cells and organs indicated by the Sun sign and season of the year; the metabolic exchange of nutrients in and toxins out indicated by the Moon sign; and the overall flow of vital energy as indicated by the rising sign.
2. THIS REPORT SEEMS VERY COMPLEX. WHERE DO I BEGIN ?
The first and most important aspect in relation to health is the study of one's own horoscope, and a simple diagnosis of the bodily and constitutional strengths and weaknesses, natural functions, and of the various ailments and disorders shown therein. It is therefore necessary to analyze the various zodiacal and planetary influences of your birth chart, which gives simple and reliable rules for the prescriptions for health and prevention of disease.
The most basic step that must be considered, is taking each zodiac sign separately and revealing which sign is rising, containing the Sun, the Moon, how their special influences can be analyzed and their afflictions be prevented by simple methods. The twelve zodiac signs are classified as having elemental qualities of either earth, air, fire or water.
In considering the human body from an astrological point of view, we must understand that it is divided into twelve parts. Each of the twelve major parts are under the dominion or "rulership" of one of the twelve zodiac divisions. These are general divisions and organ rulerships which can be mixed with organ functions designated by other signs or house divisions. From this vantage point we view anatomical location - zodiac sign - as separate from physiological functions - planetary location and aspects.
Utility and diagnosis with a medical chart interpretation entails examining the general tendencies of the health and constitution, to the detailing of specific disorders. First look at your Sun sign, as it provides the key to your vitality and metabolism. This report will give you the dietary and other lifestyle factors conducive to your solar sign and vitality. So here are the keynotes to keep in mind as you read your Io Body & Soul astrological profile:
The "Luminaries" (Sun and Moon) are the most important planets in your chart with regards to health. All manifestations of life depend upon the conversion of food into chemicals necessary for energy, structure and function. Essentially, your body is a flow system of nutrients in, and by-products and toxins out. A normal biological flow of ingestion and excretion maintains your balance and homeostasis. The Sun, its energy (prana or ch'i), photons, and light is vital not only for the production of food (photosynthesis), but the conversion inside your cells to obtain the energy necessary for metabolism.
Interruption of either body cycle, ingestion (air, water, light, and nutrients), or excretion (defecation, urination, exhalation, sudorification) disrupts the normal biological flow. Diseases are thus the expression of the battle of the organism against toxins, interruption of excretion phases, and its attempt to counteract or expel them. During the ensuing interruption phases, which are shown by the horoscope, parasitic viruses, bacteria, and fungi enter the field and further complicate the disorder(s). From the medical horoscope, we look at these essential factors with regards to health:
1. The Sun, its zodiac sign location and if it is afflicted by the malefic planets indicating overall metabolism whether -normal, fast (afflictions by Mars), or slow/sluggish (afflictions by Saturn). From the Sun sign is gained knowledge of the types of foods the native should be eat, the colors and aromas that enliven one best, and the gemstones and elixirs that can provide energy and longevity. The Sun, according to the season you were born in indicates your overall metabolic rate.
2. The Moon, its zodiac sign and if it is afflicted by the malefic planets indicating the flow of lymph, urination and excretion phases. From the Moon sign is gained insight into the native's ability to detoxify, condition of lymphatic flow, emotional factors for good or for worse, and homeopathics that can offset negative influences.
3. Saturn, the Great Malefic: its location according to sign and house represents the weakest point of the body, where toxins will accumulate, and if afflicted most certainly shows where a chronic disorder is located. Its nature is cold, constricting, weakening the metabolic powers, and allows toxins to settle and do their damage.
4. Uranus, if afflicted, causes spasm of the blood vessels and a local oxygen deficiency which results in incoordination, a "choking" of endocrine function, faulty autonomic nervous steering (dystonias), and peculiar dyscrasias that must be dealt with by remedial measures. Disturbed erratic functions is shown by the zodiac sign Uranus is located. If for example, in Cancer, it would indicate periodic breast pains, a stomach that shuts on and off leading to indigestion, heartburn, gas, etc., and menstruation that is normal sometimes and abnormal other times. These afflictions are a bit of a mystery but are usually functional and not organic and amenable to homeopathics, physical therapy, massage, and lifestyle corrections. Uranian afflictions often account for the ongoing life nuisances or complaints that are difficult to diagnose. This is where medical astrology can provide key insights and remedial actions otherwise not available or explainable. The Uranus sign and house location will show where the spasms are most likely to occur.
5. Neptune, if afflicted, indicates atony as its placement by sign and house shows where the vitality or prana is liable to be "leaking" out from the etheric body. Sunlight tends to harden or anneal the etheric body and prevents this leakage. Therefore the diseases of Neptune tend to be those that arise from living indoors for too long. Neptune rules viral and septic diseases like strep throat, pneumonia, and tuberculosis.
3. WHY IS THE SUN'S POSITION SO IMPORTANT IN ASTROLOGY?
Without the Sun, there would be no life on Earth. During the twelve months it takes to make one complete orbit around the Sun, the Earth receives life-giving solar rays from continually changing angles against the background of the grand cycle called the zodiac. This cyclical pattern produces the four seasons, also referred to as the four elements previously mentioned. Birth, growth, maturity, and death; the cycle of the seasons is ordained by the Earth's relationship with the Sun, and every individual life upon its surface is in imitation and under control of this pattern.
In judging the health and constitution from the horoscope, however, it is first of all necessary to observe three vital points: The Sun sign, The Ascendant or where the Sun was located at the time of day since the Earth rotates itself against the face of the entire zodiac in 24 hours, and the Moon sign (where the Moon was located against the face of the circular zodiac). The Sun is the giver of life in the male horoscope, while the Moon is giver of life in the female horoscope. The Ascendant shows the physical constitution and the strengths or weaknesses where one may be prone or susceptible to external influences. These are the preliminary steps a medical astrologer interprets upon face value of one's natal horoscope at the time of birth. Then as the other planets are viewed from the chart, you can begin to see how a composite analysis is arrived at.
In regards to the overall vitality and metabolism we first look at the Sun and its aspects or angular relationships with other planets. The zodiac signs show or "rule" certain organs and tissues whereas the planets represent the flows of energy, rhythmic or unrhythmic, as they move through these organs and tissues. Rhythmic flows are known as trines and sextiles. Medically speaking, these good aspects - trines and sextiles - are anabolic, they point to good metabolism and exchange of nutrients. Hard aspects are catabolic, indicating organ weakness, immune deficiency, and even predisposition to cancer. Unrhythmic flows are known as "hard aspects" or afflictions - squares, oppositions, and conjunctions. They represent energy that is blocked or not flowing smoothly, which contributes to the disease process. It paves the way for disorder if certain health rules are not followed. As a result, they denote "Pathological Tendencies" in your interpretation. These are only tendencies, and the purpose of this program is to show you how to offset these tendencies and avoid their influences, be it hereditary or karmic, circumstantial, nutritional and dietary, and whether these influences or afflictions are amenable to treatment by various modalities. The hard aspects also show certain nutritional factors or deficiencies that can be followed to offset the afflictions of the hard aspects. All of these are detailed for you in your report. You may simply obtain these vitamin and mineral supplements from the health food store. Instructions for use can be provided from a nutritional consultant or doctor.
The planet in aspect determines or signifies the flow of energy as follows:
SATURN: The great afflictor, stasis, coldness, sluggish action, hypo function, retention and deposition of toxins. The Saturn location represents where most of your toxic organ(s) (foci) are to exist. When in hard aspect to the Sun, your metabolic fires are dampened and need to be raised by correct diet, exercise, proper climate to live in, vitamins, etc. When in hard aspect to the Moon, it indicates coldness, lymphatic stasis, puffiness, etc.
MARS: Inflammations, irritations, acute illnesses, throwing off of disease toxins. Your Mars location represents were your year to year irritations and accidents are found. In hard aspect to the Sun, your metabolic fires are in overdrive, and need to be moderated by a cooling, vegetarian diet, swimming and bathing in cool water, and other forms of cooling and moderating modalities.
URANUS: Erratic actions, autonomic nerve dysfunction, and spasm. Your Uranus location determines which organs are in spasm, and need remedial correction as in physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc. The Uranus location shows where oxygen is most needed and the native is improved by proper breathing, yoga, ch'i kung, or even oxygen therapies (ozone).
NEPTUNE: Atonias, atrophy, dropped organs, mystery/undiagnosed illnesses; sub-oxygenation, a leaking of vital energy due to emotions. The Neptune locations shows where you will break down the easiest as you get old.
There are three levels of affliction as follows:
1. When there are hard aspects to the Sun there are definite weaknesses, if not overt illness.
2. A malefic planet in retrograde is a point of tension in the chart. If the planet is free of hard aspects to the Sun or Moon, but retrograde, we consider this a grade 2 level of affliction. It may not be active, but can be activated by improper lifestyle, progressed or transiting planetary positions which serve as the trigger for breakdown.
3. No hard aspects or easy aspects (trines, sextiles, semisextiles, etc.) but a lingering weakness that must be attended to as the native gets older.
4. WHY IS MY MOON SIGN IMPORTANT?
The Sun indicates constitutional vigor and metabolism, while the Moon represents the native's health, its sign (Moon sign) and aspects show the flowing of vital force as well as the body's fluids, blood and lymph. A disturbed flow therefore shows some forms of functional illnesses, particularly those caused or precipitated during the early years of life. The Moon also shows the habits that were formed early in life that now represent disease patterns, e.g. oral fixations that now translate into overeating or smoking, food preferences that become food addictions and allergies.
The Moon sign also shows talents from past lives. These are proclivities that enable you to easily become proficient in certain areas. They are also your line of least resistance, offering little opportunity for soul growth. The Moon's nodes represents the Karma carried over from your last life and the challenges that are present for your soul's growth or hindrance.
Moon diseases today predominate the health chart. The Moon has special affinity for the eyes and eye disorders, putrefaction of the bowels, autointoxication; and disorders of the breasts, womb, and stomach. Moon forces harden and crystallize the body with age. Moon dominated persons are inconstant, restless, changeable, and variable, and succumb easily to infectious illnesses, colds and flu. Hard aspects show an inclination to little or no exercise. The less afflictions in the female nativity, the better a chance of a long and prosperous life. Cancer, the malignant disease, is a Moon disease, today so prevalent in our mood based society of foul language, nasty thoughts, toxic diet, and bad habits. The Moon in astrology "rules" the sign Cancer.
5. HOW DO I BEGIN MY TO STUDY MY BODY & SOUL PROFILE ?
Basically, an interpretation starts with the generals and then leads to the specifics. Generals should be studied by the interested laity, specifics are studied by students of medical astrology, or by doctors wishing to treat specific health complaints. Like any scientific subject, there is no end to study and detail, yet in astrology there is always "light at the end of the tunnel".
Start your studies as follows:
a) Sun sign, keynotes for vitality and things you can do to increase it.
b) Moon sign, keynotes of your emotional nature and things you can do to make yourself more in line with your Sun sign, by controlling emotions to have less effect on your mind and health.
c) Ascendant: It has been stated by some that your Sun sign is where you should be directed now, while your Ascendant is the place your soul is headed to improve your spiritual progress in life tomorrow and in the next life.
6. EXPLAIN THE ASTROLOGICAL TRAITS ?
Some traits are shared by certain signs or houses. This may seem confusing unless you understand how traits are classified astrologically. One classification is known as Elements which divides the twelve signs into four groups: Fire signs, Earth signs, Air signs and Water signs as previously mentioned. The other classification is known as Qualities, tendency to movement, which divides the twelve signs into three groups: Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), and Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces). The qualities tend to outline general features or problems. For example, afflictions in the cardinal signs indicate gastrointestinal and kidney problems, in other words, problems with elimination. Afflictions in the fixed signs tend to be stubborn and chronic, and center on heart and cardiovascular diseases. Afflictions in the mutable signs tend to be acute and short lived, and are nervous and respiratory in nature.
7. WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ZODIAC SIGNS AND HOUSES ?
The signs represent where the disease potential is present by so-called "anatomical rulerships" of the body's organs and tissue systems. The houses represent conditions that come from the outside environment, or how certain illnesses develop.
8. WHAT ARE THE PLANETARY "HARD ASPECTS" ?
The planets indicate the movement of energies and forces within your body, e.g. the Sun ruling metabolic fires, the Moon ruling movement of body fluids, Saturn ruling pathological deposits, Jupiter ruling the body's fat and sugar stores, Mercury ruling the movement of nerve and mental forces, etc. Hard Aspects are angular relationships that denote tension or blockage of energy as was occurring at your time of birth. It represents the promise or tendency of energy and fluid movement patterns you are endowed with at birth. The hard aspects are the potential for disease and are called "afflictions". They are known as the Opposition (180°), the Square (90°), the Conjunction (0°), and the Quincunx or Inconjunct (150°).
9. HOW DOES ASTROLOGY RELATE TO PAST LIVES AND KARMA ?
Astrology and the concept of reincarnation are inseparable. Astrology is the study of cycles and behavior patterns in individuals that repeat themselves. "Karma" is a Hindu term that literally means "motion" which when initiated follows a destiny or cycle of duration. Included in those cycles are reactions, responses, and consequences to the initial energy or desire which put it into effect. These cycles coincide with universal energy patterns represented by planetary and celestial motions of which Astrology constitutes its study of cause and effect. According to the American College Dictionary, karma is "the cosmic operation of retributive justice, according to which one's status in life is determined by his deeds in a previous incarnation. . . the doctrine of inevitable consequence". Thus, karma is the result of desire, actions, reactions and consequences applied to the human condition. It is a cycle of motion due to energies set forth by passion.
Getting back to your location of the North and South nodes on your Tropical-Placidus Chart. You can reasonably expect to find a mark or weakness on the body part denoted by sign location of the South Node. Often this is an area of the body that requires cosmetic attention or embarrassment. Check both the house location and zodiac sign and the body parts they rule as follows:
SIGN/HOUSE - Corresponding body areas
ARIES/FIRST HOUSE - Head
TAURUS/SECOND HOUSE - Throat and neck
GEMINI/THIRD HOUSE - Arms, hands, lungs, nerves
CANCER/FOURTH HOUSE - Stomach, breasts, thorax
LEO/FIFTH HOUSE - Heart, spine and back
VIRGO/SIXTH HOUSE - Intestines, digestion
LIBRA/SEVENTH HOUSE - Kidneys
SCORPIO/EIGHTH HOUSE - Colon, sex organs, lower back
SAGITTARIUS/NINTH HOUSE - Hips, thighs
CAPRICORN/TENTH HOUSE - Skin, knees, bones
AQUARIUS/ELEVENTH HOUSE - Circulation, blood, legs
PISCES/TWELFTH HOUSE - Feet
The Astrological Chart shows one's mind patterns (Sun sign and Ascendant), our past conditioning (Moon nodes), and the emotional (Moon sign) patterns. The chart reveals what we are now - because of what we have thought (12th house) and done (planetary locations) in the past. In the interpretation of the Io Body & Soul Chart, most any factor can be regarded as having karmic factors. For example, the location of Saturn, often called the "Lord of Karma" is said by many astrologers to represent the major karmic problem in any individual's life. The sign and house position, and aspects, reveal where we meet most of life's specific tests, with its pain, illness, and frustrations. Saturn shows where our difficult karma comes into focus.
The Moon sign in karmic astrology represents a general reflection of what we have been in the past. It is an image of assimilated experience and behavior patterns with which we now feel comfortable. The Moon, according to sign location, shows karmic emotional patterns which either inhibit or help us in our attempts at self-expression and adjustment to the outer world. If the planetary aspects to the Moon are harmonious (trine 120°, sextile 60°, or semi-sextile 30°), past lifetimes and conditioning help the native to adjust to life. If the Moon aspects are hard (opposition 180°, square 90°, semi-square 45°, and quincunx 150°), it represents an inability to adjust oneself easily to life, or there is a negative self-image, emotions to which must be outgrown and transformed. Hard lunar aspects show emotional blockages of which were particularly active in childhood and adolescence. The house position of the Moon shows where we need to see ourselves more objectively, where we can tune in to find tranquillity.
Some examples may help clarify this point. If the predominance of planets, particularly those that are in hard aspect, and in the case of Saturn, are located in water, there is a need to refine one's emotions and mode of emotional expression. There is a need for emotional discipline as they flow easily from the astral body and are readily sensed and perhaps misinterpreted by others. If the stressed planets are in fire signs, there is a need to control one's impulsiveness and egocentric behavior. There is a need to develop love, sensitivity, and patience. If the stressed planets are in air signs, the individual needs to discipline the thought processes, not only how one thinks (erratically and nervously) but also the manner in which thoughts are expressed to others. Fantasies, day-dreaming, intellectual escapism and unrealistic schemes need to be moderated into the habit of rationalization and purpose. If the stressed planets are in earth signs, there is too much attachment to the physical senses, comforts, and possessions. The native must come to terms with what will really and truly provide the deep security he or she longs for. As one spiritual teacher most aptly stated, "karma is attachment". The birth chart shows our attachments and attunements, and hence our karma.
10. HOW DOES ONE IMMEDIATELY BENEFIT FROM THIS REPORT ?
There are years of study one can learn about themselves from the factors generated in this report. But let's begin by pointing out a few of the pertinent areas:
1. SUN SIGN: Your Sun sign will give you key dietary pointers that you can and should implement now. The foods that are compatible for your constitution are listed. Bach Flower Essences according to your Sun sign are also periodically helpful during times of stress. The Homeopathic Cell Salt will also be of benefit and can be readily purchased at a health food store. Take 3 tablets daily for one week and then take once weekly as a tonic for one year as a course of treatment.
2. MOON SIGN: In this report you will find your emotional proclivities and the lines of least resistance with regards to behavior. Remember, it is the Moon we should be steering away from. Counter the stress factors that you find in this report. Learn to moderate or eliminate those negative emotions. Benefiting foods will be listed that will help regain or maintain your vital circulation of bodily fluids. Eat them on a regular basis and remember the Greek Dietary Rule: never eat the same food twice in the same day! This helps prevent allergies to those things you have come to crave or desire.
A Rashi Homeopathic Mixture is also suggested. This is a Hindu formula that will help offset lymphatic stasis and other undesirable lunar tendencies based on your Moon sign.
3. MERCURY SIGN: This sign shows how your nervous system reacts with your brain and how vitality is distributed throughout your body. Listed will be recommended Nirvana: herbs and spices conducive to your Mercurial placement. Nervines are agents that have a calming or soothing effect on the nerves. Again, these herbs and spices are available at your health food store. Prepare as a cup of tea or include it in your cooking as part of your weekly routines. One cup of tea twice a day over a week or month can be considered as a course of treatment when under undue stress.
4. VENUS SIGN: This is not only your love sign, but also may indicate your areas of self-indulgence. Herbal and dietary astringents and tonics will be listed that are compatible and may offset the "battle of the bulge" which is now affecting a good part of the population. Begin by including these items regularly in your diet.
5. MARS SIGN: Our Mars sign is our nuisance sign, at worst a spot of regular and upsetting inflammations. Again, fruits, vegetables and herbs that offset these inflammatory factors will be listed. These are known as ANTIPHLOGISTICS: agents which reduce inflammation. In the Orient they are called "cooling foods". Also listed will be the ruling VULNERARIES: healing applications compatible with your Mars sign (for when you have those little accidents) that will help wounds, cuts, and scrapes heal faster.
6. JUPITER SIGN: Jupiter rules the liver as well as fatty accumulations. Listed with your Jupiter sign will be a recommended LIVER CLEANSING protocol suited to your constitution. You can engage in this activity periodically, or as part of a detox program.
7. SATURN SIGN: The area of your body where you are to most likely accumulate toxins. Listed will be compatible STIMULANTS & PURGATIVES which should become part of your routine weekly diet.
8. URANUS SIGN: The area of your body most likely to be under spasmodic congestion. Listed in your program will be herbs and spices that act as ANTISPASMODIC to offset this tendency.
9. NEPTUNE SIGN: The area of your body most likely to become under vitalized or even atonic or atrophied, especially as the age progresses into retirement. Listed will be recommended herbs and spices which will help offset these tendencies, compatible and sympathetic to the Neptune placement.
10. PLANETARY ASPECTS: The afflictions or hard aspects indicate blockages or stress points which translate into increased needs for vitamins and minerals.
ELEMENTS & HIPPOCRATIC TEMPERAMENTS
The four fundamental temperaments are largely determined by the predominance of planets at birth in the air, fire, earth or water zodiac signs. Of chief importance are the Sun sign, Moon sign and Ascendant (rising sign). Next in importance are the zodiac locations of Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Thus the temperament is determined by the grouping of planets in the horoscope. For example, if the predominance of planets and your rising sign are in air signs at birth, your tendency is to be a Spring type. Follow this simple exercise below and determine whether you are a Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter type.
Spring-Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Summer-Fire signs are Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. Autumn-Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Winter-Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
After your read this report, simply fill in the Tally below based upon your horoscope's report. Add up the four totals to see if your are predominately air, fire, earth or water. The highest score shows your predominance.

Medically speaking, when the Sun sign is in fire or air signs, we consider a predominance of genetic traits to be linked to the father. When the Sun is in water or earth signs, we consider the heredity to be linked mostly to the mother. If both the Sun and Moon are in the same elemental zodiac sign, then we pay special attention to the rulers of the fourth and tenth houses, as the ruler of the fourth house is linked to the mother, and the ruler of the tenth house is linked to the father.
NOTE: Your typology may have no bearing on your health. It only shows your temperament and your tendency to be either vital or somewhat weak. It generally shows what colors, gems, and environments vitalize you best.

The Sun is the source of your vital power, principally ruling the brain and heart in man and woman. Its sign location (zodiac Sun sign), aspects to other planets, and house position indicate the vitality of the body, especially in males. The Sun is thus the indicator of health in males, while the Moon governs health matters in females. However, the Sun and Moon are important in health matters in both sexes. The Sun signs and Moon signs at birth, along with their aspects and positions, are regarded as the "fountains of life on Earth". The Sun is one of the vital centers in a star map, along with the Moon, Ascendant (rising sign), and Midheaven (tenth house).
The power of the Sun and how it radiates within you can be thought of as light rays emanating from a light bulb, powering into your body. The Sun signs are divided into the Four Elements: FIRE (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius); AIR (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius); WATER (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces); and EARTH (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). All males born with the Sun in fire signs have the best prospects for good vitality, as light radiates most freely in a body composed of the fire element. Light also radiates freely in air, and these natives are the next strongest, but air sign people become weakened by worry and nervousness. They need rest to recuperate. The earth element for sunlight is linked with the densest matter, gives tenacity, wear and tear, rather than vitality. Theses individuals tend to recovery slowly from their illnesses. The water element for transmission of sunlight gives the weakest constitution, being a more difficult medium to manifest light (except Scorpio).
The Sun is the giver of life, but is quite impersonal in its influence that the average man or woman rarely contacts its higher qualities in a conscious or positive sense. Planetary aspects, even if hard (square or opposite), are better than no aspects at all, as in the latter, the native is hardly touched at all by its influence. This fact is the reason "Sun sign" prophecies found in the tabloids and daily paper make no sense to some individuals. When well placed, however, it signifies will power, authority, and self-reliance. If afflicted by the Moon or Ascendant, it will make the health feeble and the vitality low.
The Sun rules the metabolic fires of your body's cells. Its placement represents how that energy is needed and distributed. This topic has been termed PHOTOBIOTICS by the author. All biologic life is ruled by the Sun. Your body requires copious quantities of light from many sources to maintain your health, vitality, and beauty. Each Sun sign has recommended foods that tend to foster vitality, as well as dietary pointers, and warnings about certain foods that will disturb your body's distribution of the Sun's vital rays, indicative by your Sun's zodiac placement (the season of the year in which you were born).
In terms of the Zodiac, the twelve signs represent the Grand Man, and rule the different parts of the body, from head as in Aries, to toe as in Pisces. Thus, there is a zodiacal rulership over the body and its organs. In terms of Sun signs and rising signs, it represents where disease potential exists. The locations and transits represent how an organ or bowel will be afflicted since these are rotating, dynamic entities. The houses at birth, signify why disorders will manifest.
Inharmonious aspects to the Sun are angles and locations of the other planets in their orbits in relationship to the Sun. They are called afflictions. For example, if the Sun is afflicted by a hard angle to the Moon, the health will be weak, and the rays of the Sun will be on the cold side, the eyesight will suffer.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Vitality, the absorption of prana through the spleen, the immune system, heart function, spine and back, eyesight, individual cellular metabolism, the blood and oxygenation, consciousness.
SUN in LIBRA
True Librans are intellectuals, actively seeking knowledge and mental stimulation. They tend to be hard workers, especially after the age of thirty. They have a strong sense of fair play and equity and make good counselors and diplomats. These individuals are good negotiators and are apt to become disturbed when they are around dissension they can not control. Some Librans avoid physical activity and are addicted to luxuries and creature comforts. They also tend to be fond of rich and sugary foods which may result in adrenal fatigue and hypoglycemia.
Each sign rules structural, external and internal relationships. Libra rules the excretory functions through the kidneys and skin. Externally it rules generative and urinary organs, anus, adrenals, and vasomotor system. Structurally, the sign rules the lumbar vertebrae. The pathological tendencies of this sign are lumbago, kidney disease, uremia, polyuria, renal calculi, and edema.
Libra colors are ivory, pink pale green and rose. Turquoise and blue are their benefiting colors. Libra's birthstones are chrysophrase, sapphire, lapis lazuli, and turquoise. These individuals should remember only to wear these stones if they wish to bring that influence into their life. Libra's flowers include roses, daisies, violets, asters, geraniums and orchids.
BENEFICIAL BACH FLOWER ESSENCES:
Cherry plum: Desperate, fear of losing control, dread of doing wrong.
Walnut: Need of stability during major life changes, dislike of emotional or physical states.
HOMEOPATHIC POLYCREST REMEDY: Rhus tox - Used in rheumatism and cutaneous diseases; used in treatment of sore muscles and sciatica.
CELL SALT: Natrum phosphoricum
HEALING NOTE: D
AROMAS: Chamomile, daffodil, dill, eucalyptus, fennel, geranium, peppermint, pine, spearmint, palmarosa, vanilla.
PHOTOBIOTICS: The Libran kidney weakness should make one careful of uric acid produced by eating animal flesh. They should learn to drink copious quantities of water that has been charged with blue solar rays. Cereals, beans, corn, almonds, and eggs are suitable for their protein. Fresh vegetable juices like cabbage, celery, and cucumber will keep their kidneys clean and functioning. This is the sign of balance and one should avoid sugar and refined foods and intoxicating drinks. Recuperation comes through mental relaxation and a change in scenery.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms
AFFLICTIONS: Anemia; arteriosclerosis, brain disorders, weak eyes/vision; kidney disease, edema; skin disease, eruptions, acne; facial neuralgia, pimples, sores, ulcers; disorders of the shoulders and arms, stiff shoulders; debility.
Your Sun sign indicates constitutional vigor and its elemental quality (fire, air, water, earth), your Moon sign shows the flow of this vital force and your health. The Moon predominates health matters in the female chart, as well as those caught under the influence of its emotional force. A disturbed flow of the vital force, ruled by the Moon, will cause fluctuations in vitality and ultimately disease. Your Moon sign and its aspects shows your instinctive, reflex actions, and your habits (good or bad). Moon patterns are reactions and habits set up in childhood, and become fixed unless acted upon by the individual themselves. Its location, aspects, and afflictions are one of the most important factors to consider in the health chart.
The Moon represents the personal habits, suffering, worry, and disease tendencies. The Moon sign is always very sensitive and represents the weakest part of the body. Operations should not be performed when the Moon is passing through the native's sign. The Moon rules the body's fluids, lymphatics, and the natural power of each organ, including its expulsive or detoxifying powers. Acquired and destructive habits are generally under the influence of the Moon sign. It rules the period of life from one to seven years, when so many destructive habits and health patterns are acquired, as for example from the parents or guardians. It shows what type of habits you may develop and how they affect your health.
Moon diseases today predominate the health chart. The Moon has a special affinity for the eyes and eye disorders, defects and errors of accommodation, putrefaction of the bowels, autointoxication; and disorders or the breasts, womb, and stomach. Moon forces harden and crystallize the body with age. Moon dominated persons are inconstant, restless, changeable, and variable, and succumb easily to infectious illnesses, colds and flu. The Moon rules the stomach. Today we see swollen abdomens due to excessive eating. Full, round bellies with visual defects reflect just how Moon bound and problematic the aspects of this orbital body is in the health astrological chart.
The Moon afflicts other planets and signs by its oppositions and squares. Ill-aspects show an inclination to little or no exercise. The less afflictions in the female nativity, the better a chance of a long and prosperous life. The Moon sign signifies diseases that are acquired after birth, particularly due to indiscretions, bad habits, and emotional proclivities. It rules the natural powers and immunity. Cancer, the malignant disease, is a Moon disease, and is prevalent in our mood-based society of foul language, nasty thoughts, toxic diet, and bad habits.
It should be noted whether the Moon is above the horizon at birth (waxing) or below the horizon at birth (waning). The health will be stronger with the Moon above the horizon, rather than below. Hard aspects (afflictions) are not as strong when the Moon in waxing or increasing in light.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: The Moon rules diseases that are periodic, return time and again, as in epilepsy, vertigo, menstrual problems, swellings, migraine headaches, and gout. Rheumatism is a Moon disease, caused by the retention of wastes in the joints and fascia. Cancer is a Moon disease, caused not only by retention of wastes but also morbid bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Moon diseases today are epidemic, as obesity, lymphatic stasis, tissue puffiness, autointoxication, fungal/zymotic disorders, and worm infestation affect nearly all industrial populations. Moon diseases are accentuated by working under artificial lights or at night, drinking water from underground pipes and/or obtained from recycled wastes, eating devitalized food stored in refrigerators and freezers, breathing stale, foul or polluted air; and eating slaughterhouse meats.
The foods and spices that benefit Moon afflictions are those ruled by the Sun and Mars. The Sun produces fruits and vegetables which when eaten raw and/or fresh, will vitalize the individual and ward off disease. The old adage, fresh is best, aptly applies to the health rules.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Lymphatic system, breasts, mucous membranes, menstruation/fertility/uterus in pregnancy, stomach and alimentary tract.
ARE YOU A SUN OR MOON DOMINATED PERSON ?
The night is ruled by the Moon, and the Sun rules the day. The ancient astrologers believed that those born during the day are more ruled by the Sun, whereas those born at night are more ruled by the Moon. Moon activities tend to raise the action of morbid germs, while the electric action of the day tends to destroy them. Night activities are less vitalizing than daytime activities. Females and Moon people tend to suffer more at night when ill. Moon people are more restless, inconstant, and changeable. The Moon rules the personality and lower mind, while the Sun rules the intellect and higher mind. Health tends to return when one begins to "see the light".
MOON in AQUARIUS
The Moon in Aquarius, if well-aspected, gives the person a very vivid imagination and the power of photographic memory. These natives are often not dependent upon the faculty of reason, for their intuition is well-developed. This gives them the appearance of emotional coolness or non-involvement. It shows a liking for the strange and curious, with an inclination for subjects that are unusual, original and eccentric. In disposition they are sociable, kind and courteous and they attract many friends and are very popular. Their emotional make-up gives them remarkable ability to calm those who are mentally disturbed or hysterical. If the Moon is afflicted this position shows one of an exceedingly erratic mind, and a neurotic condition. Sorrow and sudden changes may be caused by their friends. Their strong individualism and an eccentric nature can make marriage difficult.
This is a sign of debility in old age with neurasthenia, restlessness, impure blood, obesity, and a tendency to hysteria. Natives often have eye troubles, cataract, glaucoma; pimples, and a ruddy complexion. They are prone to peculiar and strange appetites.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Sex organs, legs.
AFFLICTIONS: Edema, lameness of the legs and ankles, poor circulation, heart disease, palpitation, and angina.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Almonds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, chamomile tea, garlic, basil, and coriander.
FOODS TO AVOID: Red meat, foods that are high in sugar.
RASHI HOMEOPATHIC MIXTURE: Secale cornutum, bryonia, pulsatilla, kali bromatum, phytolacca, arsenicum album, helonias.
Mercury, when well placed in the nativity chart, indicates a good and balanced mind. It rules the cerebral hemispheres. Ill-aspected and afflicted, it shows a tendency to various disorders of mental reasoning, bad judgment, nervous disease, and tendency to gamble, swindle, insomnia, and a lack of spiritual calm. The location in the chart shows what body parts may be prone to neuralgia.
Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, therefore it manifests in diseases related to respiratory and digestive disorders, particularly of nervous origin. Physiologically, Mercury rules the respiration and breath. Mercury afflicted at birth indicates a tendency to shallow breathing. The Hindus believe rhythmic breathing is necessary for direct link between the soul and mind. Unrhythmic breathing severs this connection leading to nervous conditions, those easily influenced by others, proneness to depression, and even insanity. Proper and unregulated breathing beginning in early life leads to a cascade of pathological actions including lack of intellectual development, oxygen deficient blood, tendency to overeat since the diaphragm does not "massage" the stomach due to stifled breathing, lymphatic stasis since breathing opens the lymph channels, and lethargy due to lack of vital force and sluggish pranic currents. Mercury placement indicates much more than the mundane astrology books indicate.
Mercury is considered a neutral planet, in that its transmissions are governed by the aspects to other planets in the chart. When Mercury conjuncts the Sun, the ego is involved; aspected to the Moon, the subconscious and habits; to Jupiter, exaggeration, etc. When Mercury's nervous messages are distorted by the rays of another planet, inaccurate reception of information and inappropriate neural commands are likely. Simply, response does not match stimulus resulting in unbalanced behavior. If the large planets are involved, this can translate into important health consequences.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Mercury's chief influence is on the nerves. In regards to aches and pains, the placement of Mercury in the sign of body rulership shows tendency to affliction when ill-aspected. Thus, Mercury in Aries shows the tendency to headaches, in Taurus a tendency to laryngitis and sore throats, in Gemini chest pains, etc. To offset Mercury afflictions and thus reduce tendency to aches and pains, the native must learn proper and rhythmic breathing. Taking up study of yoga or Chinese Ch'i Kung would be of great benefit.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Nervous system, nervous faculties; breathing, the hands, the touch; organs of speech and hearing.
MERCURY in LIBRA
Mercury in Libra indicates a broad, well balanced mind with a love of art and music. Many of these individuals attain success as public speakers or singers. This position fosters virtue and morality. These people want to see their ideas translated into money and other tangible rewards. Their objectivity and unbiased approach works well in impersonal situations, but it can diminish intuition in situations where more emotion and less intellectual analyses are required. When Mercury is afflicted in Libra it indicates trouble by lawsuits through partnerships and an unfaithful marriage partner. This position can indicate reduced kidney function due to nervousness and stress. The native should drink adequate amounts (6-8 glasses daily) of distilled or reverse osmotic water to keep kidney filtration open.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Throat, heart, stomach, belly.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Renal pain and disease, diminished urination; bowel disorders; lung and chest disorders; heart disease; skin disease; tendency to vertigo, nervous headaches, and weak vision; genital disorders.
NERVINES: Chamomile, spearmint.
From the days of Hippocrates, father of Western medicine (Fifth century B. C.), the ancients emphasized the value of diet and exercise as the prime methods of restoration of health and longevity. The ancient figurines of women, known as the "Venus statues", depict a bottom heavy, obese figure of a woman. Some of these Paleolithic figurines are believed to be more than 20,000 years old. They are found in all areas of Europe, as far away as Russia, and they all show women with huge, fat hips and buttocks. Today, it is known as the "Venus Syndrome", the connection between Venus and the lower body fat, today referred to as "cellulite" - the thickening and laxity of connective tissue beneath the skin, around gelatinous pockets of fat, which traps toxic matter and body wastes.
Venus is the principle of harmony, equilibrium, homeostasis, and thus rules the body's hormonal secretions. The Moon and Venus rule strongly over the affairs and health of women. It rules over all regulatory and secretory functions, especially the female sexual hormones. It rules the chemical composition of the body's fluids, acidity and alkalinity, sodium-potassium balance, and the other mineral ions. The planet is basically benefic in action, but in hard aspect frequently points to numerous little disorders, showing a general relaxation of the system and body tone, but eventually debilitates the native as the years pass. Its afflictions are generally maladies due to indiscretions in diet and habit.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Venus has traditionally been associated with diabetes. Hard aspects to Venus point to lack of homeostasis, lack of tone, congestion and swelling of the body's tissues; cyst formation; and kidney disorders. Venus also rules over the veins and indicates such disorders as varicose veins, hemorrhoids, vascular spiders, etc.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Homeostasis, hormonal balance, ovaries, kidneys, venous system, tissue tone, nutritional functions, skin and complexion.
VENUS in VIRGO
Venus in Virgo indicates individuals with much sympathy for the sick, therefore many people with this position become successful nurses, dietitians, and therapists. These natives enjoy good relations with fellow workers and employees. Individuals with Venus in Virgo may be somewhat inhibited when it comes to establishing social or sexual relationships. Close friendships may be few, but are handled with care and responsibility. Afflictions to Venus indicate secret unions and strange experiences towards the close of life. This position can indicate irregular peristalsis and blood sugar problems, including hypoglycemia and diabetic tendencies. There is also tendency to allergy from dairy products.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Irregularities of the bowels, obstruction, intestinal mucus, diarrhea, and parasites from wrong diet, sluggish peristalsis and constipation; liver problems; intestinal parasites, tapeworm; hiatal hernia.
ASTRINGENTS/TONICS: Endive, pecan.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Feet, stomach, heart, belly.
Mars is known as the "lesser unfortunate", and Saturn is known as the "greater unfortunate", as both are considered malefic planets. The action of Mars is acute and violent, heating, inflammatory, and febrile. Mars rules one's physical energy, expressed as either self-assertiveness and healthy efforts, or aggression and hostility. Mars actions include arousal, erection, and penetration. Mars diseases are traumatic, contagious, burning, blistering, leaving scars, pock marks, and disfigurements. They are diseases that arise from anger, frustration, madness, and wickedness. When Mars is well aspected, it shows a strong constitution, good physical endurance and independence. Natives under strong benefic influence are practical, handle instruments well, and make good surgeons and dentists. When unfavorably aspected, the native is prone to fits of fury, argumentative, and liable to accidents.
Esoterically speaking, Mars, like the Moon, is one of the planets that loses its influence as spiritual faculties are developed. It is a planetary influence where its principal expression - anger - always brings reciprocal negative reactions of the worst kind. To better understand its influence in the native, the house location indicates the external conditions in the life of the native that needs spiritual development. The zodiac sign location of Mars indicates the body's susceptible areas where the negative emotion of anger will raise havoc and disorder.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Inflammations and scars on the body parts ruled by the zodiac sign or house of its placement; alterations in blood chemistry, especially glucose, calcium, magnesium; geloses and myogeloses in muscular tissues; liver torpidity and congestion; genitourinary infections; hypertension and hypertensive headaches, migraine.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Body heat, inflammatory response, adrenal function, formation of hemoglobin and blood clots, digestion of food, muscular activity, glycogen storage and liver function, genitals.
MARS in VIRGO
This position indicates an individual with a quiet, original, and resourceful disposition. A well aspected Mars in Virgo makes for good chemists, pharmacists, nurses, doctors, surgeons, scientists, and nutritionists. If Mars is afflicted, these individuals may be critical toward others and easily become dissatisfied with their work. An afflicted Mars in Virgo usually indicates nervousness and bowel complaints brought on by gluttony. As a result, the blood sugar tends to be unstable resulting in a tendency to easily put on weight. The native would benefit by drinking a glass of water prior to meals to offset the tendency to overeat. Mars in Virgo also subjects the mind to worry and irritability, giving these natives the tendency to brood over their troubles.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Weakness and inflammations of the bowels, digestive disturbances, biliousness, obstructed bowel, catarrhal enteritis, diarrhea; a large and full abdomen, liver problems from dietary indiscretions; hyperinsulinism; parasite infection; hiatal hernia; impure blood and jaundice; an active mind with irritability; overactive pancreas, sudden hunger pains; heavy perspiration with nervousness.
ANTIPHLOGISTICS/COOLANTS: Celery, parsley, alfalfa sprouts.
VULNERARIES: Calendula lotion, comfrey.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by assassination, by stoning (mob violence).
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Legs, belly; abdominal injury and trauma.
When favorably aspected, Jupiter shows one's tendency to benevolence and jovial disposition. These natives are courteous, refined, law abiding, and honorable. When adversely aspected, it denotes lawlessness, self-indulgence, carelessness in meeting obligations, and gluttony which results in ill-health.
Medically, Jupiter in the natal chart rules the liver, the main organ for balance and detoxification, reception of the intestinal portal circulation, and control of fat utilization. Thus, Jupiter rules fat metabolism. It rules the arterial blood, and the functions of digestive assimilation, especially in regards to the liver. Jupiter also rules the adrenals and the storage of glycogen, and thus has influence over the stamina and muscular power. The placement of Jupiter points to those herbs and dietetics that will best suit the native for detoxification and periodic cleansing of the bowels and thus the liver.
Although Jupiter by nature is benefic, it has a malefic influence when in hard aspect to the Sun, Moon or Ascendant; and in the sixth house. Most of its maladies are accentuated by indiscretions in diet leading to blood disorders, toxicity, and fatty accumulations.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Obesity, toxicity, hypertension, abdominal fullness, diseases from "high living", stroke, hemorrhagic diseases, jaundice.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Liver functions, especially detoxification and glycogen storage, production of urea and bile; fat metabolism; blood and arterial system; growth hormone.
JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS
Jupiter in Sagittarius, when well-aspected, indicates good fortune and general success in life. The native is humane, broad and philosophical with a religious disposition. If Jupiter is afflicted it makes the native sporty, fond of cheap and gaudy clothing, extravagant and ready to take a chance on any gamble. Financial difficulties, narrow-minded sectarian views, legal troubles, and loss of social standing are characteristic.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Knees, head, thighs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Impure blood, gout; baldness; pains and swellings in the legs and hips, fractures, sciatica; rheumatism and gout.
LIVER CLEANSING: Apple juice fasting, berry juices when in season - drink for three days.
In Greek, Saturn is known as "kronos", from which our word "chronic" is taken. Permanent disease is signified by the placement of Saturn in the chart, and its course and attack by the motion of other planets. Its action signifies binding, crystallizing, cold, dry, hardening, depleting, obstructing, retarding, and suppressing. The afflictions of Saturn are for prolonged periods, whereas Mars afflicts more acutely, for short periods.
Saturn's placement in the chart is associated with the solid matter of one's body, ruling all dense components and processes. Saturn in any part of the horoscope is considered an affliction to the zodiac sign, house, and parts of the body so ruled. It tends to weaken and make one more liable to disease, and the sign and parts ruled are usually considered the most vulnerable, even to cause death through disease and malignancy. Those parts ruled at birth by Saturn indicate reduced nerve and energy supply, insufficient oxygenation, accumulation of tissue acids, and thus fibrositis, myositis, and rheumatism. The planet Saturn indicates subnormal conditions by inhibition, retention, and suppression. The medical astrologers at the turn of the century stated that carcinoma is most liable to occur in that part ruled by the sign that Saturn is in at birth. Saturn also has rulership over the blood's clotting factors, the parathyroids, and calcium metabolism.
Saturn's afflictions come from lack of self control, spiritual development, and materialistic tendencies. When manifested negatively, Saturn's principle action is quite simply fear. The hard aspects indicate opportunity to come to terms with a specific kind of fear. The type of fear is indicated by Saturn's aspects (conjunct, square or opposition) to the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury or Venus.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Typical Saturnine problems are chronic skin complaints, stiffness of the joints and muscles, deformity; dental problems; deafness; depression; slowed atrophy and functioning of the body's processes; scleroses of the body's tissues, rheumatism from accumulated tissue wastes in the sign or house of the nativity chart.
Subluxations of the spine are partial dislocations of the vertebra which impinge and put pressure on the nerves passing through them, shutting off nerve supply and causing irritation and pain leading to disease. Along the lines of chiropractic philosophy, health is maintained by a correctly aligned spine that requires periodic adjustments by manipulative therapy. Palpation and X-ray discover these deviations but your astrological chart can identify weak areas that will be chronically affected. Each sign of the zodiac, and malefics placed in them, tend to afflict the vertebra, especially the vertebra ruled by the sign in which Saturn is found at birth. Such subluxations tend to be the major one throughout life. For example, the sign Libra rules the kidneys and if Saturn is here at birth, the 10th, 11th, 12th dorsals, and 1st lumbar will be afflicted the most, and this is known before examination. From a chiropractic or osteopathic standpoint, the emphasis of treatment should be in the area where Saturn was afflicting at birth as this area will show stasis, restrictions, stiffness, and congestion.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing, ossicification.
SATURN in SCORPIO
This position indicates a strong, determined will. These individuals possess minds that are mechanical and resourceful. They are endowed with courage and persistence which are essential in all pioneering undertakings. Individuals with Saturn in Scorpio encounter responsibility and restriction involving payment of debts of one kind or another. If Saturn should be favorably aspected to Mars, Sun or Mercury it favors surgery, engineering or any occupation in which sharp instruments, fire or water is involved. This position brings legacies and favors financial benefits after marriage. It is also a favorable placement for health and longevity. When Saturn is adversely aspected, it causes sorrow through love affairs, secret alliances, intrigues, and domestic difficulties. The person is liable to ill-health caused by worry, sluggish bowels, constipation, hemorrhoids, and ailments due to auto toxemia. Scorpio with the rigidity of Saturn indicates restrictions and limitations that are imposed by too much control in some area of their lives, or manipulation in order to gain control as indicated by house position. Colon stasis, constipation and sluggish peristalsis are characteristic. The native should drink adequate quantities of water (6-8 glasses daily).
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Knees, legs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Retention of urine, kidney stones, cystitis;gout; abnormal breathing, lymph stasis; suppressed menstruation, uterine complaints, ovarian disease; faulty elimination, constipation, appendicitis, bad breath, hemorrhoids, auto toxemia, sluggish peristalsis; nervous disorders; bronchitis; anosmia, parosmia; hypothyroidism, obesity, arthritis.
COUNTERACTING STIMULANTS: Asparagus, allspice, garlic, chives.
RULING VERTEBRA: 9th, 12th dorsals; 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th lumbars, sacrum, and taken as a whole, Scorpio rules the os coccyx.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by serpent bites; death by plague; death by drowning (afflicting the Moon), or at sea (afflicting the Sun or Ascendant); rape; death by childbirth.
Uranus rules your electrical life breath, and thus your avenues for personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates potential for originality of thought and expression, yet its energy is not accessible to much of humanity at this time. In society it rules the apparently radical ideas and people that are years ahead of their time. They lead to revolutionary events that upset established structures. The Aquarian age of which we are now entering is ruled by Uranus. Its cycle began with the discovery of electricity which it rules and is now interconnecting everyone on the planet with a synthetic telepathy.
Karmically, all aspects of the personal planets - Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, or the Ascendant - indicate areas of life where there is a strong urge for freedom of expression without restraint and the need for constant stimulation and excitement. This planet also represents the capacity to be high-strung, excitable, and temperamental. The motives of Uranus thus represent the purpose of radically repolarizing an individual's past lives, and open one up to new experience either through stimulating, shocking, and even traumatic crises to find new ways of living. People who are ruled by Uranus are lovers of freedom, rebellious at least restraint, intuitive and inventive. They are aviators, high level mechanics, or deal directly with electricity. It also tends towards erratic behavior and can make people irritable and brusque in manner.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing, ossicification. Uranus rules all the rhythmic processes of the body. It rules the movement of the whole digestive tract from mouth to anus. Thus, the common symptom of its afflictions are spasmodic manifestations and disrupted rhythms - muscles spasms, shock, cramp, strictures, ruptures, paroxysms, and contortions.
URANUS in SAGITTARIUS
Uranus in Sagittarius, when well aspected, indicates a native with a strong intuitive faculty. These individuals are prone to dreams, visions, and have very vivid imaginations. This position also gives a strong inclination towards unusual beliefs. They are philosophically inclined and desire travel for discovery and exchange. When afflicted, Uranus in Sagittarius gives a very eccentric and erratic mentality, particularly with respect to philosophy, law and religion. They possess a rebellious spirit against social conditions which often brings trouble with the authorities. There is also a desire to force one-sided views upon the world despite all protests. This behavior may eventually bring discredit and disfavor.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Bronchitis, spasmodic breathing with nervousness; rheumatism and cramps of the hips and thighs, sciatica, sacroiliac-lesion ("crick in the back"); prone to sports injuries; errors of accommodation, visual problems.
ANTISPASMODICS: Garlic, anise.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Opposed to established religion; sudden illness in the hips, arterial system, and nerves; sudden accidents by travel.
Neptune takes approximately 164 years to orbit the zodiac, taking about 13 years in each sign. Its position is a kind of cultural expression manifesting itself with imaginative and creative faculties of a generation. Its location points to a common spiritual destiny shown by the sign that it occupies. As one gets older, new generations may then seem strange in style, cultural or artistic expression, something not innately understood by the native.
People with an afflicted Neptune should always be on guard for deception, trickery, and fraud. Since each one's life is the outcome of former living, afflictions of Neptune offer ready channels where enemies from past lives or evil spirits can gain entry into our sacred temple. Forewarned is forearmed and confrontations can be stepping stones upward in life, or misery leading to drug abuse and apathy. Afflictions to Neptune may also indicate a previous life of extreme asceticism where the physical body was ignored or neglected leading to a leaky aura in this life. The corroborating symptoms are tiredness and need for a lot of sleep. There is also susceptibility to tuberculosis as Neptune is the ruler of this disease. Sunlight counteracts the tubercular diathesis and helps to harden and anneal an etheric body with a leaky aura. Likewise, a favorably aspected Neptune may let one drone away one's time, neglecting valuable opportunities offered for soul growth by following the deceptive lines of least resistance. Neptune rules illusion and abstract thinking, as well as those areas of life where conditions are not always what they seem.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Neptune's placement in the natal chart points to conditions which are difficult to diagnose, or are wrongly diagnosed. It has rulership over the aura and etheric body. Its afflictions denote laxity and weakness of the vital force, and subnormal conditions, as lack of development, undersized body or organs. Its placement in the chart and hard aspects has a strong rule over wasting of tissues leading to decay and disintegration. Its pathological manifestations are lethargy, drug abuse, intoxication, and general lack of tone throughout the body.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Pineal gland, appendix, right-brain function.
NEPTUNE in SAGITTARIUS
Neptune in Sagittarius, when well aspected, increases the inspirational, devotional, mystical, philosophical, and religious tendencies in the horoscope. It brings dreams, visions, and metaphysical experiences. These natives are fond of travel and take great enjoyment in new experiences. When Neptune is afflicted, these individuals become liable to fears and forebodings. Their dreams of danger and visions of distress make life miserable. At times they have great desire to travel but are unable to, or if they do, they have trouble or accidents to contend with.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Nervous disorders, dream disturbed sleep.
HERBAL STIMULANTS: Anise, sassafras.
Just as your Sun sign represents your true identity in this life, Pluto's house represents an old pattern of identity from the past. It is a past pattern of life that is carried over into this life. We can say that Pluto's house is that area of life where complete regeneration is needed. Compulsive behavior and even ruthlessness needs to be transformed into willful intentions yielding great powers of perception and insight into the subtle forces of life. Plutonian people can make great healers simply by touch or vision.
The aspects of Pluto to other planets gives an indication as to how that transformation can bring new understanding and regeneration. Whether the aspect is "hard" as in square or opposition, or "easy" as in a trine or sextile, determines whether one has an innate knowing, or will meet some hard karmic destiny. There is an enormous potential for power by discovering those fields of experience in the house of Pluto. It heals when it is tapped.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Medically, Pluto's energy is concerned with eliminative processes, both physical and spiritual. The energy represented by Pluto is life-giving and cleansing. Pluto's transits are said to destroy the old forms in order to bring in the new. It's pathological manifestations are abscesses, malignancies, ulcers, and poisonous bites.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Reproduction, defecation, expulsion of waste matter.
PLUTO in LIBRA
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change, upheavals, and drastic transformations. Pluto's transit in Libra was from 1971-1984. This is a sign of human relations, justice, and social expression. Means were sought to settle foreign issues by law rather than by war. Libra demands equality and Pluto is power. Pluto's transit in Libra indicates great shifts of world power to favor a more equitable balance. During the recent transit there were increasing demands of Third World nations for their fair share of the earth's resources. World sentiment was also developing against South Africa's policy of apartheid. During this period, the homosexual communities began demanding more equality. This period marked one of the greatest breakdowns in the history of the marriage relationship. Cohabitation became commonplace and many preferred not to marry. Many children are now suffering from unstable relationships formed during this time because of parents who refused to make solid commitments.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Cancer.
The first house and the sign that rules this house, is also known as the Ascendant or rising sign, or that zodiac point which is actually crossing against the horizon at the exact time of your birth. It denotes your outer personality and physical constitution. The Ascendant is about interaction with you and the environment, the meeting point between the individual and the external world. Its sign denotes the animal heat and corporeal vigor. The planet ruling the sign of the Ascendant is considered one of the principal ruling planets of the horoscope. First house placement is so important, that the degree of the sign rising is treated as though it were a planet with regards to aspects with other planets and with regards to pinpointing details of the health chart of the native - his/her mind, body, strength, diseases subject to, etc. The sign on the Ascendant denotes the body's conductance or resistance to the inflow of prana or vital energy. It is conducted best by fire and air signs; and resistant if the rising sign is of water or earth elements.
In every sense the first house should be called the native's personality as it shows what is on the surface, how you appear to others, how the world sees you or what we call the native. Thus the horoscope is also called the nativity chart. Outsiders are attracted to you by this sign. It accounts for those glaring contradictions we find in human behavior. You may feel yourself as sexy, yet it is not picked up by others or appears that way due to your rising sign's influence, and vice versa. It explains why some people are forever getting in trouble or attracting trouble through no intentions of their own. When the first house contains no planets, it means individuality is not a matter of personal concern, these individuals accept themselves "as is". If the first house contains one or more planets, then the native is consciously concerned about some aspect of his identity. There is some dynamic or hang-up that needs resolution, karmically speaking.
Planets in the first house indicate the native is aggressive and strives to be "first" denoted by the planet or planets posited. These individuals usually have a difficult time resting and relaxing their bodies which they need to learn in order to insure good health. First house people tend to be individualists with a forceful drive and ambition in life.
The first house shows the organic elements, the physiological factors, and the physical characteristics which determine the strength and resistance of the body. The Ascendant and the first house represents the "original impulse of individual being", or the self as a particular vibration and rhythm, and the unique soul destiny of the individual. It indicates essentially the type of experience through which he/she will best discover who they are. The zodiacal sign on the Ascendant normally tells us the "dharma" of the individual, the central potentiality which the conscious person is seeking to actualize. If there are planets in the first house they indicate the kinds of functions which will be most valuable in the process of discovery of one's authentic being. Thus, the planets and the first house ruling planet show the way to impel performance of specific acts.
One can often discover what zodiacal sign was rising at birth (if time of birth is not known) by studying a person's facial features and expression. The head symbolizes the essential character of the individual. The head is ruled by the first house. The first house rules the body form, constitution, and temperament. The physical appearance, strength and vitality, weight, height, color of hair and eyes, etc. are largely determined by the rising sign, degree rising on the cusp, etc. The position of the first house ruler and planets rising modifies these features. The zodiacal sign ascending denotes the part of the body more liable to affliction from external causes such as trauma and infection.
The benefics, Jupiter and Venus, in the first house at birth indicate a good constitution, whereas the malefics, Saturn and Mars, denote scars, birthmarks, moles and defects of the head. This house at birth, and by direction, signifies all diseases of the head, face, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. This house is closely associated with the feelings, sensations, emotions, manners, passions, and dispositions of the native. In this regards, it explains why the Sun sign does not reflect all the features of the native, and why the Ascendant and the Moon sign are of equal importance in the analysis of the health horoscope.
Regarding the compatibility of healer and patient, the rising sign in each natal map should be in harmony, belonging to the same triplicity, that is in trine or sextile to each other. If the patient has Aries on the Ascendant at birth, his/her healer should also have a fire sign on the Ascendant, as in Leo or Sagittarius. If the healer employed has Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn on the Ascendant it would tend to be adverse, if not in results, certainly in relationship and cooperation. The sextile and trines naturally tend to inspire confidence and faith between healer and patient.
AFFLICTIONS: Head and face, endocrine disturbances which affect the mental states, brain tumors, high fevers, meningitis, migraines.
HEALING COLOR: Indigo
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, pink, red, champagne
A Scorpio Ascendant indicates individuals who are emotionally oriented with strong will power and likely to have strong physiques. Their emotions are apt to be hidden while they appear friendly and rather quiet. They are prone to use caustic words and sarcasm. They have an ability to draw on hidden sources of raw energy to attain their goals. These individuals generally possess good vitality, especially if the Sun and Moon are well aspected. They have robust constitutions and are prone to enjoy the sexual side of life. These individuals also have remarkable recuperative powers and recover from physical or mental illness quickly. This Ascendant tends to indicate a good structure and keen, penetrating eyes, and a square jaw. It indicates potential for afflictions to the head and face as well as illnesses affecting the reproductive organs. Excretion is a function of Scorpio's rulers Pluto and Mars, thus they tend to burn wastes out of the system by fevers, infections and inflammation.
The rising sign is divided into thirds, or 3 "decanates", which have a powerful influence over the appearance and form of your body. The sign is simply divided into three 10° aspects as follows: 0-10° first decanate, 11-20° second decanate, and 21-30° third decanate. Each decanate is ruled over by a planet. The first ten degrees is ruled over by the indigenous sign ruler, the second takes on the qualities of the next elemental ruler, and the third the successive element sign ruler. Thus, the first decanate of Aries is ruled by its Mars, the second takes on the qualities of Leo, and the third would combine the qualities of Aires and Sagittarius, and so on throughout the zodiac. Simply locate the first house on your natal chart and note which degree is rising in the sign listed. This gives you your decanate. If in the last few degrees of the sign, e.g. 26° or more, you would also take on characteristics of the first decanate of the following sign.
FIRST DECANATE APPEARANCE: Scorpio people can be both thick-set and short, or tall, lithe and attenuated. The features in this decanate are often aquiline (eagle like), the brows are prominent and the eyes intense in their gaze, the mouth close-set, the chin full and determined, and high cheek-bones. The hips are usually narrow.

URANUS in 1st HOUSE
This position indicates a fertile imagination, originality, and great desire for freedom. It makes one appear odd and eccentric and many years ahead of their time. It also indicates individuals who tend to be argumentative. It makes the nature revolutionary as these natives are always at variance with rules, norms, and organized society. It signifies change of position, sudden change of environment and estrangement from parents and relatives. If favorably aspected, the vibrations of the physical body render it sensitive to the ethereal forces of nature. It also indicates inventive ability and is particularly favorable for electrical, aviation, radio and communication careers. The native usually has a tolerant and forgiving attitude. When Uranus is adversely aspected, it indicates an irritated nervous system, causing peculiar nervous complaints, that makes the nature impulsive, sarcastic, critical and easily offended. There are many sudden changes in life and the native is always looking for "greener pastures", new risks and adventures.

The second house rules material matters, property, wealth or poverty, etc. It denotes the level of acquisitiveness as a driving force, or the level of greed for power and wealth. This tends to affect the native's homeostasis since possessions are related to the value placed on food and nutrition, habits in acquiring food and other immediate necessities of life. The pituitary gland, which controls all endocrine glands, falls under this house.
The belief or realization for those so gifted, adds another dimension to understand second house questions. One's tendencies, faculties, and karma produced from past lives and carried over into the present rests with the concept of management, that is, intelligent use of one's inheritance, possessions, artistic talents, or even inventions. The second house can show the mere fact of ownership in today's essentially "unspiritual society", or one who lives according to spiritual values and surrenders to mankind assets to promote human evolution. It shows then if a person can advance beyond the traditional use of possessions, or is acting merely as an agent for the "ghosts of karma" (Geg in Tibetan), with a life filled by ancestors, driven by socio-religious hatreds and fears.
When no planets occupy this house, it indicates the native does not see money as a major issue in life. With planets in this house, the affairs of other houses which those planets rule are brought to bear influence on the matter of obtaining money. For example, if Saturn is in your second house, tenth house matters, such as your profession, is where the money will easily flow from.
People with planets in the second house have overwhelming desires to prove their self-worth, establish themselves in society by big factors as indicated by the house rulers outlined above. For example, if the Moon is in the second house, fourth house matters like the home are important and the native will desire a big home or big family. After having established their nest eggs, (with the personal planets Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter placed in this house) gluttony is not uncommon. The native will also learn the karmic problem of this house - happiness is the one thing that cannot be bought.

PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Diabetes, mineral imbalance, obesity, rheumatic pains.
NEPTUNE sextile PLUTO
Neptune sextile Pluto is an aspect of extremely long duration that has lasted for some 30 years since April 1973. It has presented constant opportunities for prosperity by unusual and aesthetic endeavors affecting humanity at this time. Universal love (Neptune) with Plutonian power has paved the way for secret inventions, free energy devices, contacts with aliens and spirits that will either mean future utopia or nearly total destruction of humanity as we know it today, as Pluto also rules atomic energy.
Astrology speaks of the third house as that of brothers and sisters, and close relatives. It actually means the earliest newborn environment and of one's grown relationship to it. The relationship of the child to his/her environment is basic and substantial in the formation of his/her character, and of responses to life. The third house refers to the early environment and to persons who acted within it - close relatives, guardians, siblings, etc. It also shows in the child "coming to terms" which is at first entirely unconscious and instinctual, later becoming the foundation for human intelligence, and consciousness.
No planets in the third house means response in a natural fashion. One or more planets in the third house indicates a self-conscious need to express thoughts.

CAPRICORN on 3rd HOUSE
The third house deals with the native's immediate speaking, writing, and communications audience in his/her immediate work or professional environment. Capricorn ruling the third house indicates individuals whose early education may have been limited. These individuals may find school and work laborious when they are young. As they become adults education and menial tasks usually become easier for them. The native's words are carefully chosen for maximum impact, and they can be harsh if not sarcastic. There is the possibility that these natives may have problems with their sight, hearing, speech or thought processes.
MOON in 3rd HOUSE
This position indicates a mind that is active and extremely fertile in imagination, ever alert for new information, and generally one possessing a fund of knowledge. It also indicates thoughts and speech are guided by unconscious factors arising from family conditioning and early childhood. There is a strong liking for mental occupations.

The limelight of publicity appeals to the native, and these individuals are usually good at editing and reporting in newspapers, where one must be on the alert. If the Moon is afflicted it indicates unfinished education, which usually results from the continual influx of new ideas. When favorably aspected, it is good for learning and mental attainments along popular lines. If the Moon is strengthened by good aspects to Mercury they may reach a position of prominence.

Sometimes the mother is an unusual person.
The fourth house is said to have two basic meanings - the soil or secure foundation in which man is rooted; and the "heart" or fundamental rhythm of the individual self. It is indeed the Nadir of the chart, the midnight point of consciousness, where "God-experience" can be had. The vertical line of the birth chart - Zenith to Nadir - points upwards to the sky (Zenith) and downward through the spinal column at the center of the globe. Unity comes by centering one's "Hara" or vital energy with that of the Earth.
Its sign and planets refer to the kind of feeling which spontaneously mobilizes and directs the energies of the organism, often called "gut feeling". The Ascendant tells who we are, while the Nadir shows what we are, at least potentially, where we stand. It is the power implied in "being a person", yet in today's global economy it is basically conditioned, if not entirely determined, by socio-cultural patterns and media manipulation, rather than by ancestral family values. Thus it indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in the native's life, including old age, the end of life and death, the various conditions which affect the close of life, its diseases, worries, wealth or poverty, etc. The nature of the end of life will be told by the planets in this house, and the sign on which the cusp begins the part or organ where the complaint will lie.
If there are no planets in the fourth house, the native accepts his background and family and makes the best of it. If there are one or more planets in the fourth house, then conscious attention is directed towards his background. He/she has reasons to question, if not doubt family matters. Some may have unfortunate liabilities to overcome before they make headway in life. Malefics in this house can indicate early childhood traumas which are best recalled and cleared by past life regression. Neurosis can result from repressed anger. Parental attitudes and conditioning have led to unhealthy if not neurotic habits. All these matters of childhood trauma and abuse are judged by the fourth house.
At the biological level, the fourth house symbolizes the acquirement of nutrients to satisfy basic physiologic needs to meet daily routines and obstacles. It is the energy needed for intercellular exchanges and for adjusting the body to changes in temperature and the demands of the physical environment. It rules over the body water, interstitial fluid, and lymphatic environment. In a mentally and emotionally developed person, one's personal power (Hara) is available for self-expression and social contact. In an undeveloped or immature being, confusion sets in with mixed impulses carried over from previous lives and those values family and society has forced upon the individual. This results in oral fixations, hormonal imbalances, lymphatic stasis and obesity. It is a being out of rhythm, breathless, confused and never satiated.
This house rules the breasts, lungs, stomach; inheritance; the birthplace and home place; the mother in the male chart and father in the female chart. Benefics in this house at birth indicate that the native should live in his native homeland, if possible, for insured good health and fortune, leading to a happy end of life. Malefics here point to a short life of the mother or father, according to the sex of the horoscope; disease, distress, and worry in old age.
AFFLICTIONS: Oral fixations, overeating, nutritional disturbances, obesity, anorexia; diseases of the stomach, breasts, and lungs.
HEALING COLOR: Violet
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Silver, green, russet, brown
AQUARIUS on 4th HOUSE
The fourth house is the area of private concerns, emotional security and how we inwardly feel about ourselves. If there are no planets in this house, there are generally no problems in the way these individuals accept themselves. The cusp on this house shows the general tempo of the subjective self. Aquarius ruling the fourth house indicates that these natives view themselves as a radical departures from the norm with license to pursue their own independence. They are apt to be gifted in some way. Their relationships with the family are apt to be eccentric and as a rule there is probably something out of the ordinary and unusual about their childhood or home environment. These individuals are apt to live in a different place or area than the one in which they were brought up. The close of life is apt to be unusual and the native may desire to be cremated.
At its highest potential, the fifth house shows the exteriorized power and a projected vision originating from a realm that is "super personal". The person thus becomes an agent for some great collective consciousness or planetary, evolutionary purpose. He/she becomes a lens through which light is condensed and brought into focus, at which point power can operate and work can be performed. This creative process, work, and its products are conditioned by the nature and temperament of the person. The person acts strictly as an individual. To the extreme, he/she expects results that will bring fame, prestige, and ego-satisfaction.
The fifth house is the area of experiences which are essentially the outcome of emotions, as distinguished from gut feelings of the fourth house. Feelings are spontaneous reactions, whereas emotions seek an exteriorization, or "moving out" with synchronous organic changes and muscular movements. The fifth house is associated with gambling in any form, for money, business ventures, romance, etc. whenever one follows hunches, inner frustrations, or imagination.
Traditionally, the fifth house is considered to the be the section of the birth chart (radix) referring to love affairs, versus a seventh house marriage. Fruitful signs and planets here denote many children, barrens signs and planets here tend to deny children. This house rules the back, spine, liver, stomach, appetites, loves affairs and sexual appetites. This house is said by some to rule the soul.
Each house of the radix refers to power and unfoldment, as well as some great test of the developing individual. The zodiac sign on the cusp of this house and planets within should give the student of astrology clues as to the best way in which he or she can solve problems creatively. The Chinese character for danger, also means opportunity, depending solely on one's perspective and ability to be creative. The test of the fifth house is that of isolation, or emergence as a unique and valuable human being. The test of the second house is that of ownership and possessions. In the third house it is thought and how to handle ideas to approach challenges of one's environment. The fourth house test is that of stability. The fifth is creative self-expression.
No planets in this house means the native has little attraction to fifth house matters. He/she can take gambling or leave it. One or more planets in this house shows the native has a natural interest in art, pleasure, children, romance, or gambling. These natives may feel a great need for love. Their ailments can come from chaotic affairs leading to frustrated and fragmented lives. The root cause is insecurity. Naturally, the houses ruled by the planets in the fifth house contribute and inspire all fifth house creativity.
AFFLICTIONS: Heart disease (with malefics in this house), overeating, egomania, spinal disorders, liver problems, arteriosclerosis, hypertension.
HEALING COLOR: Purple
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, gold, green, red
PISCES on the 5th HOUSE
The fifth house is where the ego extends into so-called pleasurable pursuits. Pisces ruling the fifth house indicates those who indulge in secret romance or become the victim as such. They are very sentimental in affairs of the heart to the point of disillusionment. Relations with children are apt to be idealized or unreal.
The sixth house implies a crisis of perception, the period of personal readjustment, the time in one's life when one is forced to realize what he/she has done and whether success has come to rest or to haunt. Once a work is completed, the composer is often painfully aware of how it could have been produced better. A person's inner worth is often revealed when faced with experiences and periods of inadequacy, frustration, or defeat. These crises take their toll upon the body, require guts and fortitude, and great reserves of vitality. This house represents fundamentally, everything that deals with personal crises, the way to best meet them, and the direction of personal growth and transformation. The sixth house is somewhat karmic in nature by its perception or reason for duties, debts, and obligations.
The sixth house is known as the "house of health" and the sign on the cusp of this house indicates which body parts and organs prone to disease and affliction. Illness may be the direct result of some defeat of the vital energies unable to cope with a challenge to grow stronger, or an attempt by the soul to show a need for a revision in attitude. The sixth house shows a response of the individual to a social situation. Also, as a patient, one should not consult with a doctor whose natal Saturn is in the sixth house of the native, as one will find incompatibility or may even be poisoned by medication.
Natives with planets in this house may have a lack of self-esteem, be plagued by guilt, or seek the approval of others. All these negative emotions affect the health with nerve related ailments, blood sugar problems, and intestinal disorders.

ARIES on 6th HOUSE
The sixth house deals with careers, routines, and health. The native's obligations to others as well as himself/herself appear in this house. Work will prove to be demanding and there is the tendency that the native may become a workaholic and concentrate much energy on his/her job. In this house of food the native is prone to "eat on the go". These people may get hungry suddenly, and for this reason are prone to eat many convenience foods, as they have no patience for preparation. As a result their health suffers. This sign also indicates a craving for protein and the native may eat too much meat. Eating fast also paves the way for putrefaction from undigested food. These individuals must learn to chew food slowly and thoroughly.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Disorders and weakness in the head and those parts ruled by Aries - brain, cerebral nerves, mouth, hair, skull, blood vessels of the cranium, upper jaw; high blood pressure, skin rashes, fevers; putrefaction, dysbiosis, autointoxication; lymphatic stasis.

The seventh house is closely related to the sign Libra, and thus marriage and partnership, the husband in a female nativity, and the wife in a male nativity are also related. This house shows the test of functional cooperation and participation between individual and society. Function suggests purpose, both inherent and potential, in man or woman. Purpose is only revealed as one operates within the group or global economy. It is the field of human experience that the person can be most basically transformed and can gain freedom. Planets in this house reveal compelling pressures and motives for destiny. In such cases, individuals may find themselves driven to enter into certain types of relationships as part of their destiny.
While the first house represents how the native appears to others, the fourth house shows how the natives sees himself or herself, the seventh house represents how others appear to the native. It represents those whose lives touch the native and how they respond. If the house is unoccupied by planets, he/she is comparatively free of the influence of others in most of his/her affairs. These individuals do pretty much as they please, but it also means others do not generally help them either. The affairs of this house are always related to the area of another house where the ruler of the sign on the seventh cusp lies. If there are one or more planets in this house, the native is consciously dependent on others in some respect and other people tend to control his/her affairs. Natives with planets in this house may find it difficult to "stand on their own two feet". They feel accomplishments need to come through other people or their partners or spouses. The Sun located here is indicative of good health, while Saturn signifies a potential for a short life. Mars here, indicates a bad wife and sickness.
The seventh house also denotes the type of physician or healer required in health matters. It is important that the healer is compatible with the native depending on the illness.

TAURUS on 7th HOUSE
The seventh house deals with other people in the native's life, particularly those that attract attention as well as direct personal relationships. Taurus ruling the seventh house indicates the native is attracted to practical, dependable, earthy people. These individuals are apt to select wealthy marriage partners and seek enduring relationships.
This house, its cusp, and the planets located in it, indicate how a person can best approach opportunities and the resistance involved in bringing relationships into a fruitful situation. These relationships can mean marriage, partnerships, and business associations. The second house refers to private assets, or what can be used to actualize one's birth potential. The eighth house deals with business contracts and agreements that are legally binding. The eighth house field of experience deals with trust, management, and responsibility. The second house deals with personal management, whereas the eighth house with proper management of business assets, profits and losses. It indicates where binding agreements will bring legacy. It may also mean death followed by rebirth, or the kind of disagreements which bring unresolved frustrations and a future surrounded with karmic ghosts. With such a native, emotional scarring tends to be hidden. These individuals have a burning need to purge themselves of past memories which brutally punish their bodies for years. Many succumb to chronic ailments around the ages of 42 to 49 years old. With the background of this emotional insecurity, they push hard for overt success, only for their bodies to crack up under the pressure. Sex is often their only form of organic release.
If the eighth house is unoccupied by planets, the native takes emergencies in stride and usually faces crises with appropriate action. If the house is occupied, eighth house matters are of serious concern for the native. These matters may take the form of handling other peoples money, dealing in antiques, archaeological findings, etc. The eighth house also indicates the end of physical life, the surrender of the soul, the time and manner of death. The planets in this sign at birth indicate the quality of death. Benefics here indicate an easy and natural death. Malefics in this house tend to a more sudden, accidental or even violent death.

GEMINI on 8th HOUSE

Gemini ruling the eighth house indicates the native's thoughts on death are regarded as mental curiosity resulting in less personal fear than most. Their thoughts are also frequently on sexual matters more so than on actual engagement. Their inner strength comes from their adaptability of mental reactions.
Experiences and the tests related to the ninth house are those periods encountered by the individual to find the meaning of things. The act of knowing belongs in the third house because it implies mere contact with the immediate environment. It is knowledge derived merely from sensations. The ninth house relates to understanding, a far more complex process which involves synthesis of many factors and data. The German term "gestalt" applies to the ninth house as a type of knowing, understanding, and referencing holistic experiences derived from mystical and philosophical inquiry.
The ninth house is the house of symbols and words. Symbols have to be interpreted. The radix chart is a set of symbols relating to the location of planets and stars at the time of birth. It symbolizes the complex relationship existing between the native and the universe. Likewise, all religious concepts and mystical visions are symbolic of man-to-universe relationships. To speak of a "God Experience" is a typical ninth house activity, a unity which the person projects and asks for answers for all his conceivable needs.
The danger one faces in ninth house experiences is over-expansion caused by ambition and greed for power and power symbols, such as money. Ambition is the negative aspect of this house, leading to compulsive egocentric relationships that use other people for power or prestige. Knowledge is used to achieve power. It is this type of knowledge our society holds in high esteem. Ours is a society imbued with competition and ambitions, worshipping success and power with no concern for the environment and health of society as a whole. Thus the relationships become perverted, destructive and inharmonious to a wholesome life. In such a society, the mind is used as the instrument of success. Group relationships translate into compulsive cooperation, mandated actions, and forced taxation. It implies twisting the laws, natural as well as political, so they become tools for gathering wealth. This is the mind of the politician, the corporate leader, the scientist in search of inventions and discoveries for personal fame.
If the house is unoccupied by planets, the native finds it easy to accept certain philosophical principles or cause of religion, and there is no resistance to understanding higher principles. If the house is occupied, the native is concerned with philosophical formulations or developed principles. Due to this high thinking, people with benefics in this house are some of the least likely to have health complaints.
The ninth house denotes the fundament, hips, thighs, hams, higher mind, dreams and visions. Malefics in the ninth house at birth tend to disturb and unbalance the mind, or cause religious excitement and fanaticism, unorthodox views, and trouble with religious authorities. It also points to dangers in foreign travel, injury or ill-health, or even death abroad. It is advised that persons with malefics at birth with no benefics in this house should remain in their native land.

In the tenth house an individual meets experiences which result from his/her successes or failures in gaining social, public or professional position. He/she is integrated, or fails to become integrated into the social collective and public status in the community. It is one's "office" which defines one's stand in the community. First house potential becomes actualized in the tenth, if all has gone well during the unfoldment of preceding houses. It is a house of vitalistic functions, being on the Midheaven or zenith. The tenth house, the house of Midheaven, corresponds to the sign Capricorn. It rules the knees, hamstrings and thighs.

In the male nativity it rules the father, in the female nativity the mother and the affairs of the mother.
If the tenth house is unoccupied by planets, the native's ambitions and their probable outcome are more directly related to that area of his affairs where the ruling planet falls where the tenth house cusp is found. If the house is occupied, the native has a conscious struggle both to formulate his ambitions and put them across to other people. Any planet in the tenth house reveals more of the outcome of this house than the actual sign or "house rulership. " Planets in the tenth house contribute directly to the native's position in life. Their worries, internal pressures and incessant need to work hard may drive them into chronic illness.

In the eleventh house, the power of society, as a collective or group, is released through the individual. The power is released through the activities the individual performs within the social unit such as in their profession, church, club, fraternity, etc. Success is seen pleasurable in the social environment as his/her work and prestige unfolds. The experience gained in the tenth house makes it possible to set new social objectives, new professional goals, or to relax in the company of one's peers or fellow workers. This house has much to do with an individual's attitude towards achievement and social success. It is the use a person makes of either achievement or failure which establishes his/her self-worth. Success or failure brings into the total being the way one lives, feels, and acts and thus has great influence on the health of the native. Success as well as failure must be used wisely, significantly, and creatively. Regression therapy can do much to undo the patterns that led to failure, or perceived failure can be unfolded into a new dynamic.

At the twelfth house, the sky comes to an end, as one has performed his social or professional work in the eleventh. It is described as the house which closes the human cycle of life. They are either the Angels of Light beckoning to the beyond, or they are the dark Guardians of the Threshold, whose memories are shaped by frustrations, denials in life, fears and sins of omission. In the twelfth house we meet the results of our passive acceptance of that which was, or our spiritual rebellion that helped make a new world. We face the karma of society in a subconscious manner, or we face the karma of individuals who fought society for selfish interests, or for the sake of a better world.
The collective power of memories are witnessed in the twelfth house. What is called karma may be so great that it stifles the individual identity of the newborn, or drowns out the rhythm of a new cycle of the man facing the probability of rebirth. This results in the new cycle, becoming no more than a repeat of the last cycle. According to ancient Indian philosophy, the last thought held in death determines the pattern of the future incarnation. One of the stranger characteristics of our linear, Western society is its inability to think in terms of cyclical processes. Such a denial can be traced to a religious decision of the Council of Constantinople in the 5th century A. D. which prohibited the belief in reincarnation and other factors that began the era of the dark ages.
The twelfth house relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss, misfortune, the private hells, anguish, solitude or confinement, hidden fears and worry. It is considered by some as an "evil house", the house of restrictions and limitations, and detrimental spiritual or psychic conditions of the native. It is related to the sign Pisces. Its placement suggests the best way to deal with one's ghosts and products of the subconscious. The best way to deal with a shadow is to illuminate it by the use of lights focused upon it from a number of different directions. This process is utilized in past life regression therapy. Ghosts and shadows of the subconscious will vanish when subjected to the light of understanding and compassion.
If this house is unoccupied by planets, the native is generally not consciously confronted with its implications. He does not live in fear and accepts and works within the framework of his destiny. Not everyone in life is confronted with the spiritual issues of the twelfth house. Many indeed pass through life facing the material consequences of their conscious ambitions as revealed by the tenth house. If the twelfth house is occupied, the native has some matters in which to confront and work out as shown by the houses ruled by the occupying planets. The sign on the cusp of the twelfth shows the general tempo of inner spiritual matters in the native's life. Planets here indicate forms of introversion with emotions that build up until some form of illness manifests. Talking about their feelings through past life regression is the best remedy for twelfth house individuals. They need to learn that harboring envy, jealousy, and hatred invariably brings disease and misfortune. The karmic law applies.
AFFLICTIONS: Auto immune disorders, reduced thymus functions from negative thoughts; afflictions, hurts and injuries of the feet; lymphatic congestion; worry, brooding, despair and despondency.

Those with Libra ruling the twelfth house are very sensitive and regard their relationships very seriously. Libra ruling the twelfth house indicates natives that are somewhat inclined to regard misfortune as being someone else's fault and unlikely to happen to them. The Libra attitude is to "pass the buck" when the chips are down. Matters are not favorable for getting to the root of deep problems of the native.
SUN in 12th HOUSE
This Sun position denotes great internal struggles as this is the house of the subconscious and where our negative thoughts and deep secrets reside. It is said to be the house through which so-called evil karma is reaped. It brings with it a danger of conflict with authority. It is the signature of the lonely soul, who as a recluse shuts oneself from society. If afflicted by Mars, Saturn or Uranus the whole life may be one of sorrow and misery. Yet, well-aspected by Venus, Jupiter or Saturn, the native will be capable of much self-sacrifice. The sign the Sun occupies should be carefully studied. Thus when in Aries, trouble through persons in authority is indicated; in Taurus, trouble in financial matters, or unexpected loss through secret enemies; and so on with the rest of the signs. This position favors work in hospitals, through chemistry and laboratory work, or work with prisoners. It gives a love of the occult and leads to curious lines of research.
PSYCHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: This house indicates an individual whose ego is anchored more in what he has lost rather than what he will gain. Some may be so estranged from human contacts they may never really come to know or fully understand their real desires or personality. If the native displays leadership, it will be from behind the scenes. The native can have powerful secret enemies.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Lowered vitality and poor health, especially in men; anxiety; chronic disease prone to confinement and hospitalization; melancholy; weak eyesight; insomnia.
Aging, premature: Old social beliefs and fear of being one's self. The resolution is to love and accept yourself as who you are. Past life regression should prove most helpful.
Anxieties: Not trusting the flow and processes of life. The resolution is to approve of yourself and trust the processes as righteous opportunities.
SUN sextile NEPTUNE
Sun sextile Neptune favors the spiritual faculties and intensifies the spiritual vibrations in the aura.

In others it fosters a love of the occult which leads them into the spiritual world. It suggests those who are prone to have highly developed intuition.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Psychic powers which benefits the vitality.
SUN conjunct PLUTO
Sun conjunct Pluto indicates a strong willed native with a competitive disposition and egotistical drive. These individuals usually possess sexual potency. There is also the potential for a jealous personality. There is tremendous ability and power at their disposal, or even higher states of consciousness. The native must learn harmony or else their efforts will be their own self-undoing. Health impairments come from not recognizing the body's need to recuperate as the native tends to push beyond the limits of endurance. They may suffer from a hyper metabolism resulting in acidosis and severe nutritional deficiencies.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Cancer, malignancy; prostate problems; colitis, diverticulosis, dysbiosis; hypothyroidism; sinusitis; vaginitis, cystitis.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: Severe deficiencies of vitamins A & D, iodine, magnesium.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Carrots, squash, green leafy vegetables, tea, whole grains.
PLUTO in 12th HOUSE
Pluto in the twelfth house when well aspected indicates that the native may possess psychic abilities. These individuals have an interest in dreams and the occult and other metaphysical subjects. When well aspected it indicates empathy and the capacity to improve the circumstances of the unfortunate. An afflicted Pluto can indicate treacherous secret enemies, nervous problems, and a disturbed psyche due to over-sensitivity. Pluto's influence also indicates those whose marriage partner may work in private research and development, banking secrecy, or managing public resources. There may also be contact or involvement with criminals or organized crime.
KARMIC LESSON: Regenerate the subconscious mind by bringing its realm to the mind's eye, i.e. with past life regression. You should find the transcendental truth which has the effect of liberating the self from a morass of confusing emotional problems. Do not allow guilt to gain the upper hand. The key to life is to develop and cultivate definite spiritual attitudes.
SATURN in 12th HOUSE
Saturn in the twelfth house, positioned alone or afflicted, indicates a secluded life and an occupation where the native does not come in contact with the public. The native desires to work secretly, unobserved, and live peacefully and alone. This may cause a long-drawn-out illness due to worry, misery and confinement.
