The Med-Scan technique helps determine potential weaknesses within a body.

The Natal Chart Figure

After doing extensive research on Raynaud's disease I compared the symptoms with Anne's chart. I felt that nerves were the main reason for Anne's bouts with the disease. Gemini on the Ascendant and both her Sun and Mercury in Gemini in the Twelfth House give ample cause for Raynaud's disease. Moreover, Anne's natal Moon has four hard aspects, all of which certainly help heighten her emotions, which if repressed could manifest in the form of nervous irritation. Probably the most significant of...

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.

Since Pluto rules Scorpio, which governs the colon, intestinal disorders may occur with a hard aspect between Neptune...

Unit of Potency

Zinc was first discovered in plants by Raulin in 1869. Then in 1877 Raoult and Breton found the mineral in the liver of a human. Because of the difficulty in analyzing this mineral, zinc was somewhat ignored until in 1940 a human enzyme was found to contain it. It was later established that at least 25 different enzymes contain this valuable mineral, attesting to its obvious importance to bodily functions. Approximately two grams of zinc are found in a human being. It is extremely important in...

Figure 12 Bonnies Progressed Chart

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.

If it is, there may be initial misdiagnosis of the medical problem, misinformation about the...

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

The sweet tooth inclinations of Venus can cause problems as well. Eating...

The Moon

Whereas the Sun, by sign and aspect, shows the constitutional quality of the body, the Moon tells the conditions of health. Because of this sensitivity, the Moon is a good indicator of when to undergo operation or not. For example, a person should probably not have surgery on a void of course Moon day. Void of course days usually mean that the surgery won't be done correctly, further complications will be found or a second operation will become necessary. I once had a client who, against my...

As a result there may be such problems as diarrhea and colitis. Possible intestinal tract malabsorption may...

Mercury Jupiter

A hard aspect between Mercury and Jupiter can point to a moderate deficiency of thiamine. If a hard aspect from Saturn is present as well, this deficiency may be caused from a lack of manganese Jupiter .

The Fixed Stars

Thousands of years ago astrologers placed great stock by the constellations and certain stars within them, so-called fixed stars which are not truly fixed .

If there is a festering condition, Vulcanus is the energy that will make it surface. Vulcanus is also like a chameleon in that it tends to take on the personality of the planet or planets it aspects.
