LENNON'S BODY AND SOUL REPORT (click

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.

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 SCORPIO
Mercury in Scorpio indicates a shrewd and penetrating mind, keen aspiration, a quick wit and a sharp, sarcastic tongue. The native's disposition is bold and stubborn. These individuals may be headstrong and difficult for others to get along with. But these people are extremely resourceful, dauntless and able to overcome difficulties which would crush others. They tend to equate knowledge and information with power and secrecy. Once they form opinions, they stubbornly cling to them. Analytical with a healthy dose of skepticism, they are excellent investigators. They are attracted to mysticism and the occult. When Mercury is afflicted, they are quarrelsome, skeptical and cynical, always holding opposing views and sarcastic to others. They are always intrigued by the opposite sex which may be misconstrued by others.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms, bowels, back.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Pains in the bladder and genitals, menstrual pains, genital disorders; rheumatism with backache, pains in the arms and shoulders; bowel disorders; carelessness and forgetfulness; arrhythmia; stuttering, hoarseness, and deafness.
NERVINES: Carrot juice, artichoke.
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 LIBRA
The natives who have Mars in Libra usually possess refined tastes, intuitive minds and an idealistic temperament. When well-aspected, it indicates an ardent nature who is greatly attracted to the opposite sex and therefore inclines to an early marriage. The faculties of perception, observation and clear vision may also be well developed in these individuals. They are enthusiastic lovers of art and beauty and are popular with the public, or in societies of a social or religious nature. This location of Mars is ideal for a lawyer or surgeon and indicates many friends among scientific, religious, philosophic, legal or business people. These people are good strategists, able to accomplish things through diplomacy and charm instead of physical force. If Mars is afflicted, it makes such people very unpopular and subjects them to the opposition and criticism of the community; and to scandal due to unfaithfulness in marriage or business partners. Mars afflicted by Uranus or Saturn is a true sign of separation, broken ties, unsuccessful lawsuits and all things for which the seventh house stands. An afflicted Mars in Libra usually causes kidney or urinary complaints, especially after injury. The native should drink adequate amounts of water (6-8) glasses daily to keep the kidney channels clear and clean.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Diabetes, liver and kidney disease, nephritis; skin eruptions, sores and ulcers related to renal dysfunction; facial neuralgia; back pains; venereal infections, syphilis; itching and burning sensations in the eyes.
ANTIPHLOGISTICS/COOLANTS: Apple juice, passion fruit, mango, feverfew, vervain.
VULNERARIES: Comfrey, eucalyptus.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by assassination; given to sensual pleasures.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Feet, kidneys, sex organs, skin.
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 TAURUS
This position tends to make the native lovable, kind and sympathetic. Lovers of nature, home and the fine arts, these individuals are often artistic. If Jupiter is favorably aspected, this position attracts wealth and also indicates a generous disposition to aid in philanthropic movements. Persons with Jupiter in Taurus are usually very fixed in their religious views, and not much given to change. These individuals seldom travel except for a definite purpose. If other testimonies in the chart permit, it indicates gain through marriage, children, speculation, investment and legacies. If Jupiter is afflicted it leads to extravagance in finery, banqueting, and unnecessary display. There is also the possibility of loss in investments and other monetary ventures. These natives may be over indulgent and over eat.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms, neck, belly.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Gluttony and dietary indiscretions leading to sore throats, quinsy, impure blood especially from drinking and high living; bowel disease and flatulence; spasmodic disorders and disorders of the arms and shoulders; gout.
LIVER CLEANSING: The lemon juice fast - 50% lemon juice mixed with 25% water and 25% fresh apple juice as a sweetener; carrot and celery juice.
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 TAURUS
Saturn in Taurus, when well-aspected, indicates a quiet disposition, slow to decide, but stubborn when a position is taken. These people are tight lipped, and may be trusted to keep secrets. In terms of money the native is apt to be frugal if not stingy. When Saturn is afflicted in Taurus, particularly by Mercury or Mars, it causes trouble with speech and a quick temper. This position also indicates financial difficulties, misunderstandings with the opposite sex, and loss through speculation. The native benefits by taking iodine to offset a tendency to hypothyroidism and obesity.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Heart, breast, belly.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Bad breath, throat coughs, laryngitis, enlarged adenoids, quinsy; lung congestion, asthma; heart afflictions, angina; rapid tooth decay (esp. lower teeth); bowel disease with stasis, autotoxemis and constipation; color blindness ; chronic muscular spasms, epilepsy; hypothyroidism, obesity, arthritis; problems from vaccination (vaccinosis).
COUNTERACTING STIMULANTS: Cardamom, rhubarb.
RULING VERTEBRA: All cervicals are ruled by Taurus.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by animal bites, by strangulation or suffocation.
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 TAURUS
Uranus in Taurus indicates a native with a stubborn, self-willed nature, possessing quiet determination and persistence. If Uranus is favorably aspected the earning capacity is greatly increased and fortunes may be made in real estate or investment. When Uranus is afflicted, the native is of a suspicious and jealous nature and liable to sudden, unexpected reverses in financial affairs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Asthma; erratic movements; facial distortions, tics, twitching; problems of the vocal cords and motor nerves of the throat, stuttering, stammering, choking and gagging; chronic muscular spasms especially of the neck and shoulders, spinal disorders and subluxations; epilepsy; coronary thrombosis; spastic colitis; abnormal growth from diminished pituitary secretions.
ANTISPASMODICS: Passion fruit, thyme, peach.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Sudden illness in the throat, bones of the neck, lower jaw, neck, esophagus; susceptible to loud noises with disturbed sleep.
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 VIRGO
Neptune in Virgo, when well aspected, gives the native fine mental faculties, inspiration, prophetic ability, and devotion to high ideals. They are moral and just and seldom dwell on the evils of life. If Neptune is afflicted in Virgo it makes the native prone to hypochondriacal tendencies which may make the native miserable.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Tuberculosis of the intestines, malnutrition, appendicitis, gastroenteritis, ascites, hypochondria; given to stimulants and narcotics; diabetes (esp. of tubercular origin); hiatal hernia.
HERBAL STIMULANTS: Lemon grass, dill, elecampane.
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 LEO
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change, upheavals, and drastic transformations. Pluto's period in Leo was from 1938-1957. Leo rules kings and representatives in government. These children grew up in rebellion either born during the war years or shortly thereafter. The idea of self-sufficiency bloomed later in these children, returning to the earth, living in communes and counterculture societies with a basic distrust of the establishment. Pluto in Leo also marked the period of atomic energy, which is ruled by Pluto. For the first time in recent history, man witnessed the atomic bomb. A worldwide power struggle followed in the form of a cold war.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sarcoma, 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
This sign gives much force, energy, and vitality when on the Ascendant. Those born at this hour possess inherent abilities of pioneering and leadership. They admire philosophical thought and are at their best when they can guide and control. They are expressive in speech, apt to be mechanical, and clever in one form or another. Above all, they are lovers of freedom and initiative, and therefore are best self-employed or in charge. These persons can be hyperactive since this sign rules the sympathetic nervous system. This would make them prone to acidosis. The form of the body on this Ascendant tends to be typically choleric - dry, sparse, moderately sized, a swarthy, ruddy or sallow complexion; strong, red or sandy hair; penetrating eyes; and a birthmark on the head or face.
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: The Aries type is usually of medium height, rather thin, with a long neck and stooping shoulders. The head tends to be long, the forehead wide and high, the hair thick, dark and wiry. The eyebrows are bushy and deep set; the cheek-bones high and the nose aquiline. The mouth is usually wide with a firm chin. The body is long, strong and straight in the back with a jutting out pelvis. There are often strong "smile lines" from the upper nose to the corner of the mouth, requiring vigorous massage to remove.
KEYWORDS: Aggressive, adventurous, self-willed, pioneering, intuitive.
SECOND DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Leo decanate is an elegant feature, similar in head formation and narrow shoulders, but the body is less rigid.
KEYWORDS: Proud, extravagant, organizing with executive ability.
THIRD DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Sagittarius decanate is ruled by Jupiter, giving more expanse to the eyes with the upward tilt of the eyelids towards the temples, showing optimism in the native. The head formation, however, remains Arian - long with a wide and high forehead, and a chin coming to a point.
KEYWORDS: Magnetic, generous, judicious.
EMPOWERMENT COLOR, GEM, AND FRAGRANCE: Red, ruby, and sandalwood.
MODERATING COLOR AND GEM: Indigo, sapphire.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: A strong, vigorous constitution if well aspected.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Headaches, sunstroke, high fevers, brain disease, baldness, conjunctivitis, eye strain, skin rashes, overwork, migraine headaches, and insect bites are the most likely physical complaints. Diseases due to dehydration - hypertension, atherosclerosis, kidney disease, obesity, premature aging. The native should drink 6-8 glasses of water daily.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Lives through serious illnesses.
JUPITER in 1st HOUSE
Jupiter in the first house, when well-aspected, is a good sign of health, opulence, and general fortune in life. It indicates a good-natured, kindly disposition, cordiality, honor and righteousness of the native. These people love pleasure, particularly out-of-doors, and are fond of traveling. They have considerable executive ability and are therefore sought for positions of importance and responsibility. Jupiter afflicted on the Ascendant indicates a tendency to self-indulgence, according to the sign wherein it is placed. If in Cancer, the native may become a glutton with the inevitable result that in the course of years he/she becomes excessively stout, the liver becomes torpid and enlarged and as a consequence is subject to sicknesses of a serious nature like hypertension and even cancer. In Sagittarius the native may be a gambler who would stake his/her assets on the toss of a coin. In Pisces he/she becomes an incurable chocoholic or alcoholic, in Scorpio a sensualist of the worst nature and so on with the other signs. Whenever Jupiter is afflicted on the Ascendant the health suffers through corruption of the senses - alimentary, sexually, obsessively or otherwise.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Poor circulation, hair loss; obesity; cancer.
JUPITER conjunct SATURN
Jupiter conjunct Saturn indicates a native with financial difficulties or opportunities that may be thwarted at the outset. To achieve one's goals, severe patience is necessary as one meets disappointments and difficulties. The native must be strong and learn the lessons of perseverance and prudence. There is a tendency for the native's destiny to be at the mercy of larger social issues.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Arteriosclerosis, organic heart disease; melancholia, depression; lowered vitality and resistance; seborrhea, acne, dermatitis, eczema; liver disorders, poor absorption of fats, gall stones; pre-diabetic condition due to prolonged hypoglycemia from chromium and zinc deficiencies; troubles of dentition; fragile capillaries due to vitamin C deficiency; asthma, poor respiration, oxygen deficiency, chronic disease from poor circulation; cancer.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: The native should avoid taking synthetic vitamins as they will be poorly assimilated, better to opt for all-natural. Deficiencies of vitamin B-6, biotin, inositol, choline, PABA, vitamin C, zinc, chromium and manganese.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Spinach, broccoli, bananas, citrus fruits, whole grains, beans.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by assassination (of noble men); death by the bubonic plague (if in the first 6 deg. of Aries).
SATURN in FIRST HOUSE
Natives who have Saturn in this position are reserved, faithful, calm, grave and serious. Saturn in the first house and well-aspected is a fortunate sign for no matter how a person may be handicapped in the start of life, ultimate success is assured through patience, persistence, self-control and restraint. Such people have a wonderful capacity for work, never seeming to tire no matter what the obstacles. If Saturn is afflicted it makes the person timid and averse to undertake responsibility. They are subtle, secretive, and distrustful of other people and seek isolation. Such people are usually shunned by others and doomed to sorrow, disappointment, delay and general trouble through life. This is also a poor indicator for health, particularly in the earlier years.
PATHOLOGIC TENDENCIES: Bone disease, rapid/early tooth decay; bruises to the head, frequent colds, headaches, sinusitis, poor vision, premature hair loss, early graying and wrinkling of the skin.
Premature graying : Stress, strain, and commitment to responsibilities in life. The lesson here is to learn to trust the flow of life and that some things cannot be changed for the moment.
Depression, sorrow: Hopelessness due to suppressed anger against others you feel that you do not have the right to express or recognize. Hope and resolution are your keys for release.
Colds and flu: Those small hurts piling up in confusion and disorder. Do not allow yourself to be so easily "influenced" by others. Hence the origin of the word - influenza.
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.
AFFLICTIONS: Problems with homeostasis - blood and electrolyte changes, intake of nutrients - diabetes, obesity, hypoglycemia; disorders arising from vaccination.
HEALING COLOR: Yellow
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Green, lemon, citrine, brown
TAURUS on 2nd HOUSE
The second house shows how these individuals earn money from their own efforts and from what resources. Taurus is the natural money sign of the zodiac. Taurus ruling the second house indicates individuals addicted to personal pleasures and fine material things in life. To attain these things, they have a natural sense of how to earn money and look after it. This position also indicates that aesthetics or beauty may influence their careers in such fields as music, modeling, hairdressing, cosmetics, fashion and beauty consulting or design, or jewelry. Afflictions to Taurus on the second house, such as Saturn's placement, may indicate that the native has a difficult time finding enjoyment from personal or financial ventures.
URANUS in 2nd HOUSE
Uranus in the second house, which governs finance, indicates an unsettled state of financial affairs, impulsive spending habits, and money earned from unusual or unorthodox occupations. Even these individuals may have good aspects concerning financial matters, it may be found that they are unable to protect themselves against these sudden and unforeseen losses or gains. Therefore it is difficult to give financial advice to such people, for even if they invested prudently and cautiously, there will be sudden, unexpected, if not catastrophic losses in business ventures. The sign in which Uranus is placed will show the nature of the losses, as in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, loss by fire or in electrical investments; in Virgo or Capricorn, by investments in lands, mines and real estate; and so on with the rest of the signs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Spasms in the neck and shoulders.
URANUS trine NEPTUNE
This is a generational aspect that applies to those born in the mid-1940's, those called the "war babies". The emergence of these natives as adults led to an interest in mysticism, psychedelic drugs, gay rights and homosexuality, etc.
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. It may sometimes indicate speech difficulties. The native is often asked too often to help other people, brothers and sisters. The disease of "other people" can lead to great frustrations and nervous stress. These individuals need to learn to say no, take regular breaks in peace and quiet, take short naps after lunch, etc. for the health to improve.
Malefic planets in this house tend toward mental instability and chaos unless well aspected. It shows traumatic experiences such as child abuse, fights with siblings, rebellion, etc. What differentiates this house from its opposite, the ninth house, is that of experiences involving direct personal contact with the close environment of the individual, resulting in habits and proclivities. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. Benefics in this house, when well aspected, indicate a well balanced mind. It rules the fingers, hands, chest, lungs, the lower mind and wakefulness.
AFFLICTIONS: Disturbed breathing rhythms, reduced vitality, lack of oxygenation, nervous tension, mental instability.
HEALING COLOR: Orange
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Yellow, indigo, white with red
GEMINI 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. Gemini ruling the third house indicates individuals who are very involved with computers, communication, languages, or transportation. They are known for their versatility in discussing different ideas. Afflictions in this house point to lack of tenacity and concentration which may prevent their thoughts from being realized. The native may also be quite gossipy.
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
CANCER 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. Cancer ruling the fourth house indicates an individual who has deep, sensitive moods. These individuals are highly receptive to people around them. Their emotions can run so deep that these natives may not be independently aware of their own subjective self. The Cancer sensitivity these natives draw from their environment, and being responsive to the public tide, help them to build elements in their own natures.
PLUTO in 4th HOUSE
Here the Plutonian compulsions operates within one's inner security, home life, and emotional depths as an urge for a place of retreat. There is a desire to be master of one's own home and domestic life. A strong occult tie with the earth may be found in a transformed love of nature, ecology or conservation. Or one may wish to know the secrets of life through geomancy (using a divining rod), or exploring. This Pluto position also indicates some form of upheavals in home life. These childhood experiences ultimately leave one with a sense of no control over life matters.
KARMIC LESSON: Rediscover your deepest feelings about yourself and your sense of security, inner peace, and contentment.
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
LEO on 5th HOUSE
The fifth house is where the ego extends into so-called pleasurable pursuits. The native is apt to be overly confident with an exuberant ego. Leo ruling the fifth house indicates individuals with strong libidos and procreative urges. They are ardent in love, and strongly proud of their children. Pleasure principles are focused on sexual needs, fine food and drink, as well as other comforts and delights. Afflictions to this house can indicate personal pleasures that are repressed. The native may be overly sensitive to criticism from others.
VENUS in 5th HOUSE
Venus in the fifth house indicates the native enjoys socializing and romance to the point of self-indulgence. It can also indicate difficult relationships with parents and other family members. It indicates that the native is unusually affectionate and as a result he or she usually experiences a number of love affairs. It indicates that marriage will be fruitful and productive of lovely and loving children. It is a fortunate position for teachers and people connected with educational institutions, also for those engaged in publication of literature and for gain by speculation in stocks or similar securities. Afflictions to this Venus position indicate the possibility of sorrow from love, poor judgment in speculative affairs and the inability to obtain enjoyment from life.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Disease due to excess pleasure; torpid liver; obesity.
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.
Benefic planets ruling this house or planets in this house show better health, while malefics afflict the mind and body. The sixth house in a broad sense governs disease, especially if there are planets in it at birth. It particularly rules the abdomen, belly and intestines, food affecting conditions of health, healers and physicians. The sixth house also rules aunts and uncles, servants, persons in employ, kindred on the father's side, small animals and pets of the native.
AFFLICTIONS: Hereditary diseases, general ill-health; abdominal disease.
HEALING COLOR: Aquamarine
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Black, amber, scarlet, brown, dark blue
VIRGO on 6th HOUSE
The sixth house deals with careers, routines, and health. The natives' obligations to others as well as themselves appear in this house. Virgo in the sixth house indicates care and precision in one's work to the point of fault finding and criticism. The native is apt to have developed good eating habits, is fond of health foods, and may be a finicky eater. The native prefers meals served on time. This is also a sign that delights in pork and pork products and the native should be cautioned against parasite infection.

SUN in 6th HOUSE
This is the cadent house of digestion and health, therefore when the giver of life is confined to the sixth, it is said to be partially robbed of its vitality. If not well-aspected, the native's health may be impaired but one must not assume that because the Sun is placed in the sixth house the health will always be poor. "The stars impel but do not compel", and since knowledge is power, even though the Sun may be badly aspected, if the person knows how to safeguard his health he can rise above the influence of the stars. If the person is placed in a humble environment, this position of the Sun denotes some promotion while in the employment of others. If he/she is an employer, this position of the Sun is good for success in business. Health and physical fitness should be important to them as this position indicates weakness of the Sun's vital factors. These natives should receive regular exposure to natural sunlight and be careful of their diets, avoiding artificial foods and chemical medications.
PSYCHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sun in the sixth house indicates those whose identification is tied to their work or profession. The sixth is the house of service and labor, thus one whose Sun is well-aspected in this house, especially if the influences are from Mars or Jupiter, service in the lines of chemistry, nursing, dietetics, nutrition, etc. are especially indicated.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: General ill-health, especially in men; chronic disease, deformities, hypochondria, lowered resistance to disease, frequent illnesses (especially when in bad aspect to the Moon, or the Moon is afflicted in Cancer); weak back; bladder troubles; liver problems; mental illness.
Worry, hypochondria: Frustration eats away at the self. The resolution is that life is now with ease and joy, and others will help you.
Incurable Disease: It came from nowhere, it can go back to nowhere when one realizes that miracles happen everyday.
MARS in 6th HOUSE
Mars in the sixth house, when well-aspected, indicates a quick, energetic native who is likely to rise to a prominent position in his/her employment. It indicates mechanical skills, and many of these natives are inventors, surgeons, machinists, engineers, builders, and skillful hobbyists. This position increases the vitality and detoxifying powers when the native is sick. This influence of Mars also suggests enthusiasm for maintaining health and physical fitness. If Mars is afflicted in this house there is liability to troubles and quarrels with other employees or employer. Should the person be in the position of the employer, he/she will always be at variance with employees and subject to loss by theft and dishonesty because of them. An afflicted Mars in the sixth house also gives a liability to fevers and inflammatory diseases, danger of burns, scalds and gun-shots and accidents sustained in the course of employment. These individuals must guard against high blood pressure, fever, headaches, and stress.
AGGRESSION LESSON: In no area of life is the emotion of anger of more danger to one's life and health. The native must come to terms with the frustrations of life, learn to breathe properly and regulate the flow of thought.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Gluttony, shallow breathing, catarrhal enteritis; blemishes; bladder problems; injury at birth; genital infections (especially in Scorpio, Libra, Gemini); rheumatism; high blood pressure from stress; headaches; risk of accidents involving fire, gun-shots, inflammatory disease.

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.

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.

SAGITTARIUS on 9th HOUSE
The ninth house has to do with our higher ideals and ability to heal by faith.

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. Planets in this house have a powerful influence in matters of health and disease, especially in regards to nervous tension and stress developed from one's career, as well as injury from falls, blows, or the death of a parent. 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.

Friendships are apt to have unexpected developments, sudden beginnings and endings, or twists of unique interest. The location of Uranus will show the tempo of the relationships.
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.
