History and Characteristics

Phosphorus is very important to the body. It is found in every cell and in nearly every chemical reaction and is the second most abundant mineral in the body. Since phosphorus is concerned with the skeleton, genetic traits, proper tooth development, functions of the kidneys and the nerves, the body will not grow properly unless enough of the mineral is present. Furthermore, without the help of phosphorus carbohydrates, fats and protein falter in their work of growth, maintenance and general...

Recent Clinical Developments

Some infants have been reported to have a biotin-related ailment, seborrheic dermatitis, early in their first few months after birth. Their digestive systems may be defective at the beginning and not producing gastric enzymes for hydrolysis of biotin. If a mother is breast-feeding an infant, her own body will be able to convert bound to unbound biotin, carried in the breast milk. The mother can add liver and cooked eggs to her diet to help her infant with this problem. Injections of biotin are...

Unit of Potency

Iron is one of the most important minerals in the body. Found in the red blood cells, its primary function is to unite copper with protein to make hemoglobin (the red coloring of the cells). It also helps make mygolobin (a globulin found in the muscle tissue), which transports oxygen to the muscles so that they have the capacity to contract. And, extremely important to the protein process, iron works with enzymes and other nutrients to improve oxygenation throughout all the bodily processes....

Pluto Ascend ant

Inherent genetic disorders may occur with a conjunction between Pluto and the Ascendant, or a person may tend to inherit the health problems of his or her mother, father or grandparents. For instance, if there is a strong family history of cancer, the individual should get checkups and maintain a careful, well-balanced diet to prevent this potential disease. Cellular disturbance, disintegration, tumors, cysts, fibrous tissue or any other kind of replicative activity may manifest. Endocrine...

The Vitamin B Complex

The vitamin B complex is a generic term assigned to a large group of chemically nonrelated compounds. The known B vitamins are B-l (thiamine), B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin), B-6 (pyridoxine), B-12 (cyanocobalamin), B-l3 (orotic acid), B-l5 (pangamic acid), B-17 (laetrile), biotin (vitamin H), cholin, folic acid, inositol (hexahyuroxycyclohexane) and PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) These vitamins are referred to as the B complex because they share certain characteristics in common. All are...

8 Do you eat sweets and sugar products

The average American now consumes 102 pounds of sugar a year. Nowadays even our newborn children are fed sugar in their formulas, which contain high amounts of dextromaltose or glucose. Refined sugar overstimulates the production of insulin, disrupts the absorption of proteins, calcium and other minerals and retards the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Although brown or Turbo sugar contains a few nutrients, it is just as damaging. And sucrose (cane sugar), a combination of one molecule...

Deficiency Symptoms

General weakness, nervous disorders, weight loss, a hunger for salt, cramps and digestive upset may be experienced. Other symptoms can include vomiting and elevated blood urea, especially during times of hot, sultry weather. If exhausted adrenal glands are the root cause of the deficiency and sodium leaves through the urine, potassium will be left in the cells, resulting in greater weakness of the muscles, slowed contraction time and partial or com plete paralysis of certain muscles....

Dosages

Recommended Dietary Allowance The need for PABA in the diet has not been established by the FDA. Adelle Davis suggests that supplements be sold without prescription and that 100 milligrams be added as a daily supplement. It does seem safe to make PABA available over-the-counter, since there is little use of sulfa drugs today in lieu of more sophisticated and synthetic derivatives on the market. Therapeutic Dose Under a physician's guidance 100 to 300 milligrams are recommended. Megadose Dosages...

Mercury Ascendant

When Mercury is conjunct the Ascendant, a person is apt to run on nervous energy, producing frayed nerves. He or she needs to learn to relax and turn off the mind and its careening mental faculties. Since such an individual will probably never sit still, he or she should use a rocking chair to be able to sit in one place and yet be in motion. Worry is a great deteriorator of health with a conjunction between Mercury and the Ascendant, and only attitudinal change can assuage this tendency, A...

Toxicity

Except in the cases of laboratory animals the toxicity level for manganese is unknown. But anyone considering taking ten or more milligrams of the mineral daily should consult a physician to monitor the manganese serum levels in the blood. Manganese is toxic in overdose. Workers who have inhaled manganese dust have manifested a varied assortment of symptoms, such as ataxia (muscular incoordination), loss of strength, loss of appetite, frequent headaches, mental confusion and sometimes criminal...

Parathormone is also necessary for neuromuscular activity, blood clotting, cell membrane permeability and proper...

4 Do you drink What How often or much

This question pertains to any liquid, from water to alcoholic beverages. What we put into our systems our kidneys must eventually deal with. Too little water prevents the kidneys from dispensing toxic waste material that has accumulated. Hence, many people who drink perhaps only one glass of water a day at the most end up with an inflammation of the bladder (cystitis) that may have secondary complications affecting the kidneys, prostate gland or urethra. Thus the medical astrologer should...

Diet

During the eighteenth century many people who lived in the midwestern states suffered from goiter, which was corrected by adding more foods containing iodine to their diets. Saltwater fish were also eaten to help the thyroid maintain its normal level of activity. And it is still a good idea to include saltwater fish in the diet, especially for those people who do not live near the ocean. Supplements such as algae, kelp tablets and Irish moss (an herb seaweed) are good for an ailing thyroid....

Massotherapy

Besides suggesting nutritional supplements, herbal and homeopathic remedies and specific diets, a medical astrologer may recommend that a client undergo some form of physical or mental therapy.

If a client answers yes to this question, a medical astrologer should examine the natal chart to help determine why the person smokes. People usually smoke for two reasons habit and or nervousness. Nerves are ruled by Mercury and Uranus respectively. A habit, on the other hand, indicates the influence of a fixed sign and or a strongly placed Saturn. In fact, Saturn may be said to rule smoking many doctors feel that the most important vitamin for smokers to take, in megavitamin doses, is vitamin...

Background

I met with Steve and his mother, Joyce, in early 1978. Steve was U years old at the time and had been pronounced mentally retarded, autistic or braindamaged by several specialists. Joyce did not believe them. She felt sure that Steve would talk and thought that the medical establishment had overlooked something. Since the doctors felt Steve was hyperactive, they had put him on Mellaril, a tranquilizer, to calm him down. And he was certainly a handful. He would be up and running around early...

The Planets

In medical astrology the planets indicate the functions or malfunctions of specific organs or systems in the body, depending on what sign the planet is posited in at birth. For instance, Mars always implies a potential area of acute inflammation, a flaring up of a specific condition. If Mars is in Gemini, there could be an acute ailment involving any of the Gemini-ruled areas such as the tubes of the body. Which tube is affected would have to be discerned by careful analysis of the entire chart...

Chapter Seven Vitamins

In 1911 Casimir Funk, a Polish chemist, undertook a study of why widespread diseases such as scurvy, beriberi, pellagra and rickets occurred. He became convinced that these diseases were caused by the lack of something in the daily diets of those people who contracted the ailments. After more research he proposed the theory of vitamins, arguing that if certain vitamins were left out of diets, the diseases would occur. Funk named the vitamins after the ailments each cured. For instance, vitamin...

Since both Pluto and Jupiter represent voracious appetites, more can possibly go wrong with a hard aspect between these planets, especially a conjunction, than with any other combination of planets. The gluttony signified by these planets will probably go unchecked unless Saturn is strongly and well-aspected. The only position where some of these gluttonous...

Moon Neptune

With a hard aspect between the Moon and Neptune, especially if the Moon is conjunct Neptune, a person will probably be extremely sensitive to drugs. And if Neptune is in Leo, any drugs being taken, such as diuretics, produce a weakened heart condition. Since drugs are responsible for flushing potassium out of the body, a deficiency of that mineral may occur, putting further strain on the heart. Other potassium-related problems may come about. If Neptune is in Virgo or Scorpio, the intestinal...

Hard Aspects Of The Sun Sun Moon

A hard aspect between the Sun and the Moon implies poor health and low vitality. When the energy of the Sun is blocked by the Moon, which rules all the bodily fluids, there is the possibility of a very basic flaw in a person. Ill health can be expected at some point if eating habits are poor and emotions negative. At the least such a person will have a weak beginning as an infant, perhaps with stronger health toward middle age. The individual cannot afford junk food diets because his or her...

This midpoint structure can indicate an illness to a woman in a family. When this midpoint structure occurs, birth is possible, with easy labor and delivery. Progressed Saturn, Hades or Admetos at the midpoint warns of prolonged labor or complications during delivery. The occurrence of this configuration can mean death to a family member or the manifestation of a chronic illness. Progressed Hades at the midpoint may indicate the worsening of a condition.

Mercury Pluto

First and foremost, a hard aspect between Mercury and Pluto may imply either a lack of or an overabundance of thiamine, situations probably caused by a person's diet. Especially if Mercury is conjunct Pluto, a severe deficiency may occur, with resultant thyroid ailments. Furthermore, since Pluto rules Scorpio, which governs the colon, the root of Fixed Cross diseases, an imbalance of thiamine could indicate heart problems as discussed under the section about the aspects of the Sun to Mercury....

The endocrine system, one of the many systems of the body, consists of the following glands the thyroid, the parathyroid, the pituitary, the adrenals, the thymus, portions of the glands with ducts (the islands of Langerhans in the pancreas) and parts of the ovaries and testes. The main function of these glands is to contribute hormones to the body that affect the activity of other cellular mechanisms and organs. Each of these glands manufactures hormones, chemical messengers that regulate many...

Hard Aspects Of The Ascendant

The First House cusp is an important health consideration in a natal or progressed chart. The Ascendant is medically the most sensitive angle in a chart, with the Midheaven as a close second. (A planet within 10 degrees of either side of the Midheaven is, in essence, shining down upon the individual and if that planet has three or more hard aspects to it, it may be strongly involved in an individual's health.) The conjunction is the most significant hard aspect in terms of the Ascendant. Any...

When Bobby finally arrived, he was two months overdue and weighed five pounds. By the age of 2 Vi Bobby had all the symptoms of hyperactivity. The neurologist put him on Ritalin, a commonly...

Final Analysisj

When I saw Jessica after going over her chart, the first thing I told her was not to go in for the laparotomy until she could get a cholecystography to determine if she had gallstones. She looked at me strangely and confided with relief that she just didn't feel good about going in for the exploratory surgery. She agreed to postpone it and ask her specialist for the gallbladder test. I then listed the nutritional supplements I felt she needed, telling her to have the list approved by a...

Homeopathy And Astrology

Homeopathy is a therapeutic system of medicine developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 170 years ago in Germany. Since that time it has spread to every country of the world. It is based upon the Law of Similars Similia Similibus Curenter like cures like. This means that a substance given in large crude dosages in a person will produce specific symptoms. But, when this same material has been reduced in size and administered in minute doses, it will stimulate the body's reactive processes to...

Chapter Five The Med Scan Technique

Every body has its own particular weak spots that tend to dysfunction under mental, physical or emotional stress or through poor diet. The Med-Scan technique helps determine potential weaknesses within a body. It relies on medical astrology to find out what diseases a person may be susceptible to or what vitamin or mineral deficiencies might occur. That is not to say that because specific configurations appear in a natal or progressed chart a person will have a certain disease or nutritional...

Bodily resistance to disease may be very low, with the thymus gland responsible. The adrenal glands may also be weak, causing adrenal exhaustion. A person may be sensitive to normal doses of drugs, requiring only half the usual amounts. Other possibilities are allergies to drugs and allergies in general, caused by malfunctioning adrenal glands. Muscles may also be flabby or weakened, and bones may be soft or deformed from a lack of sufficient calcium (Saturn) the...

Moon Pluto

A severe deficiency of potassium might occur when the Moon is in hard aspect with Pluto. Without sufficient potassium the endocrine glands (Pluto) may be hypofunctioning. To determine the specific gland affected, you will need to look at the signs the planets are in if they are in Cancer or Capricorn, the pituitary gland may be affected in Taurus, the thyroid and in Scorpio, the ovaries and testicles. If the Moon is conjunct Pluto in Scorpio, it's especially possible there will be troubles,...

SaSuPl

With this configuration bodily changes that tend to be irreversible may take place, such as changes in the blood or bones or hardening in organs, arteries or veins. A health crisis may occur. This configuration can mean an illness that lingers, slow recuperation and health that deteriorates after the age of 30. With the progressed Moon at the midpoint abortion is possible. Progressed Cupido at the midpoint may indicate a difficult delivery. One's innate physical strength is limited with this...

Sixth House

Although the Sixth House is one of the two well-known health houses, people with planets in this house generally have a lack of self-esteem, and they tend to gravitate toward stronger, more confident individuals. In doing so they may succumb to other people's needs, ignoring their own. Therein lie the seeds of destructive ailments. Sixth House individuals too often are plagued by guilt one of the most vicious emotions that humans have acquired. Other people spouses, children, relatives or...

Neptune Pluto

Glandular malfunctions are possible with a hard aspect between Neptune and Pluto. A deficiency of pantothenic acid may produce infections of the thymus or spleen, causing those glands to function poorly. And if Pluto is in Aries, the adrenal glands may be sluggish if in Cancer, the posterior pituitary gland may be atonic, causing a multitude of ailments elsewhere in the body. Since Pluto rules Scorpio, which governs the colon, intestinal disorders may occur with a hard aspect between Neptune...

The Signs

The signs help pinpoint what part of the body is potentially suspect of dysfunctioning. Of course, not all signs with planets within them will represent malfunction. In medical astrology the most important planets are the outer ones Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Mars also needs to be carefully examined. Although the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter should never be disregarded, a higher percentage of medical ailments stem from the action of the five other planets when they are in hard...

The Planets And Operations

The positions of the planets and luminaries often determine the best and worst times for a person to undergo surgery. Following are guidelines for planning operations astrologically 1. Try to plan an operation five days before or after the new Moon. At this time, fluids are at their lowest ebb consequently, there is less chance of swelling. 2. Avoid operations five days before or after a full Moon. At this time bodily fluids are at their highest and can cause excessive swelling, hemorrhaging or...

Figure 12 Bonnies Progressed Chart

Bonnie would get pregnant shortly after the birth of her second child I've seen this configuration active in many surprise pregnancies that no one was aware of until too late. Progressed Transpluto was conjunct natal Uranus, indicating an operation or birth of a child. And progressed Kronos was conjunct the natal Midheaven, perhaps signifying the competency of the doctor involved. In 1963 at 22, Bonnie had her last child. At that time progressed Mercury was conjunct Transpluto, suggesting news...

Clients often have severe childhood diseases, such as polio or rheumatic fever, that can have medical ramifications in later years. Rheumatic fever, for example, a disease that manifests through a strain known as A beta hemolytic streptococci (Neptune), a bacteria that causes high fever and aching in the joints, can cause minimal to major damage to the heart and or kidneys many years afterward. The fact that a client may or may not still have a heart murmur because of the rheumatic fever can be...

Hard Aspect Of Venus Venus Mars

There is the potential for a lack of vitamin E (Venus) when Venus is in hard aspect with Mars, The deficiency may be aggravated by the ingestion of too much chlorinated water, since Mars rules chlorine and overdoses of that mineral can destroy vitamin E in the body. Vitamin E also needs fatty acids (Mars) for assimilation, and there may be a lack of these fatty acids, especially if there is a hard aspect from Saturn as well thus the normal functions of the glands, particularly the thyroid and...

Sun Uranus

Uranus in hard aspect with the Sun always indicates that a spasm condition may be present, with the constriction usually taking place when a person is under stress. At such times, an individual will probably need one of the vitamins or minerals ruled by the Sun. For example, there may be a sporadic need of vitamin A because of stressful conditions. At one calcium. True to Neptune's nature to disguise things, w time, the person may be tested for a deficiency of the illness may seem to be a...

Detoxification Diet

Christopher, M.H., wrote a small booklet entitled Dr. Christopher's Three Day Cleansing Program and Mucousless Diet. I tried the diet, and it worked. But trying to detoxify in three days puts a terrible strain on the body. Detoxification is like a jet that reverses its engines at full thrust a lot of turbulence and backwash is created. But with detoxification the backwash occurs in the body, and toxins are violently stirred up, moving back into the bloodstream to be...

Mercury Saturn (d-alpha tocopherol) . Mercury Saturn In the chart example in Figure 2 the Moon has the most hard aspects to it. The planets with two hard aspects are also suspect of creating moderate deficiency potentials and should be included in the notations as well. The medical astrologer then puts the planets down in the following order Moon potassium and riboflavin. Sun vitamins A and D, magnesium and iodine. Mercury thiamine. Jupiter vitamin B-6, cholin, inositol,...

Introduction

Medical astrology is a science that demands a union of knowledge of both astrology and medicine. Ideally, it takes years of acquiring astrological expertise and then becoming totally familiar with physiology and anatomy to qualify as a medical astrologer who with the cooperation of a physician can accurately diagnose diseases and advise clients on the best procedures for regaining health. But in varying degrees the tools of medical astrology are available to all people interested in the...

Medical Astrology By Dr William Davidson

No number of words can express the Sun's importance to everyday bodily functioning. The Sun should never be overlooked in a natal chart because of its vital importance and energy to a person's entire well-being. All inherent vitality, energy or prana flows through the Sun, The sign it is found in will tell us how the energies are being dispensed within the given lifetime. Metaphysically, the Sun is our Heart Chakra through which all emotions flow. As Dr. William Davidson has said, it is the...

Cupido

Cupido is the first of the eight Uranian planets discovered by Alfred Witte of Germany. This planet rules the family, marriage, divorce and childbirth as well as creative, cultural and artistic pursuits. To the medical astrologer Cupido is of use in determining the birth of a child or illness within the immediate family whenever Cupido is threatened in a person's chart, it is not that individual who may get sick but, instead, a member of his or her family. By examining the placement of Cupido,...

The Uranian Planets

I use the Uranian planets in natal or progressed work only on the 90-degree dial, a device used by Uranian astrologers and cosmobiologists to discern hard aspects such as the semi-square (45 degrees), the square (90 degrees) and the opposition (180 degrees). My experience does not include analyzing the transiting Uranian planets or looking at the signs they occupy in natal charts, athough research should be conducted in this field. But evaluated on the 90-degree dial, which shows both hard...

Neptune

Pantothenic acid and laetrile (vitamin B-17). Neptune is an important planet to consider in a medical evaluation of the natal chart. The planet has a propensity to be everywhere yet nowhere now you see it now you don't. It is diffused, translucent and difficult to pin down or pinpoint. For these reasons it is important to see if the planet is centrally figured in the aspects of a natal chart. If it is, there may be initial misdiagnosis of the medical problem, misinformation about the...

Saturn

Vitamins C, K, PABA and bioflavonoids (vitamin P). Minerals Calcium, fluorine, sulfur and vanadium. Saturn should be scrutinized closely in any natal chart. Most ailments that manifest are usually associated with this planet. For example, whatever sign Saturn is found in at birth might determine what organ, tissue or area of the body is potentially hypofunctioning that is, sluggish and not working up to normal expectation. If Saturn is found retrograde, the chances of that part of the body...

Jupiter Saturn

Not everyone can take synthetic nutrients and improve in health. The relationship between Jupiter and Saturn in a natal chart helps determine an individual's ability both to assimilate and absorb vitamins or minerals once they are ingested. Since Jupiter stands for expansion, enfoldment or envelopment of something and Saturn stands for walls, blockage, stoppage or sluggishness, if the two planets have a friendly relationship via a sextile or trine, then the proper assimilation will probably be...

Venus Uranus

With a hard aspect between Venus and Uranus there may be sporadic needs of niacin when sudden stressful situations occur, especially if a person is on a high starch-carbohydrate diet. Uranus rules Aquarius, which governs the oxygenation process of the body. If too many starch products are eaten, a great amount of oxygen is stolen from the bloodstream to digest the starch. Oxygen loss accompanying a deficiency of niacin will bring on dementia, confusion, disorientation, mental imbalance and...
