Aries rules the head in general, specifically the motor centers of the brain and the circulation of the blood through the skull region. The action of Aries is said to show epilepsy and sleeping sickness (encephalitis) that may infect the brain through virus. Aries is also involved with inflammation of the brain that may cause delirium, frenzy, vertigo, dizziness, sharp pains in the head along the course of a nerve and congestion. Those people with planets in Aries may suffer from frequent headaches caused by clogged or sluggish kidneys (Libra) that have a reflex action to the head, digestive disturbances (Cancer), resulting in headaches and sluggish gallbladders (Capricorn)— other Cardinal Cross diseases. And various skin eruptions affecting the head or face as well as baldness plague some Aries people.
Other diseases influenced by Aries are various forms of toxemia. By a reflex action to the kidneys toxemia may induce skin ailments, usually caused by poor diet. Uremic toxemia is also a possibility in pregnant women. A more subtle and insidious form of toxemia can also invade the blood and cause havoc in many ways.
This placement might result in an unusual amount of blood congestion, causing headaches, brain fevers, cerebral meningitis, sunstrokes or heatstrokes (apoplexy) or the inability to express oneself properly through speech patterns or loss of verbal comprehension (aphasia). There is also the possibility of an imbalance of the sodium-potassium exchange, with too much sodium causing weight gain and edema. There is a further probability of acidosis because Aries people tend to eat a lot of meat, high in acid. Thus the acid-alklaine exchange may be out of balance, especially if Libra is involved. Acidosis can also bring on tension and headaches.
The Moon in Aries can mean weak sight and eye strain since Cancer, ruled by the Moon, governs the sac containing the eyeballs. Migraine headaches are also possible because of emotional strain and tension. And there can be insomnia from a lack of potassium (Moon) in the body.
Headaches caused by nervous tension or strain may result from this configuration. Brain disorders are also possible because of a lack of proper nerve synapse release: muscle coordination problems or speech/thinking impediments could occur as a result. In addition, neuralgia or shooting pains in the head may come about because of the nerves. And there is the potential for Bell's palsy, wherein nerves are inflamed and paralysis sets in, as well as spells of vertigo or delirium.
Venus in Aries may affect mucus congestion in the head and nasal passages. There can also be eczema of the head and face as well as gastric headache from overeating carbohydrates or other rich foods.
This placement may produce violent pains in the head, rupture of the blood vessels in the brain, stroke, extreme restlessness, blows, cuts and wounds or surgery to the head and face, cerebral congestion and a tendency toward headaches.
Excess blood in the head, causing stress on vessels, may result from Jupiter in Aries. The placement also presents the potential for aneurysms if the veins and/or arteries do not remain flexible and elastic.
With this placement constriction or lack of blood to the head may cause strokes or mucous buildup in the ears, resulting in earaches and deafness. Saturn in Aries can also signify apathy, listlessness or dullness because of a lack of blood supply to the brain.
Uranus in Aries may indicate sharp, shooting pains in the head, sudden headaches, pain in the eyes or spastic constrictions of the blood vessels of the eyes. By reflex action to Libra spasms of the kidneys might result in cyclical albuminuria. v
This placement may mean weakened adrenal gland function, mucous buildup in the head area in general, causing mental fatigue, allergies involving the sinus cavities and weakened kidney function by reflex action to Libra. The blood vessels in the brain may be weak and unable to take high blood pressure; thus a stroke may result.
Since Aries rules the general site of the head, where the pituitary gland is located, and since Aries is ruled by Mars, which in turn rules the adrenal glands, there can be a possible malfunction of the pituitary hormones that directly affects the adrenal secretions. Depending on Pluto's aspects to other planets, the adrenal glands may be sluggish, hypo- or hyperactive. Aneurysms in the head area are also a possibility.
Bones: Cervical vertebrae. Muscles: Sternohyoid, mastoid, trapezius, ster-nomastoids, esophagus, stylopharingaeus, splenius and complexus, longus, scalenus, biventres cervicis and spinales cervicis.
Arteries: External carotids and basilar artery. Veins: Occipitals, jugulars and veins of the thyroid gland.
Cell Salt: Natrum sulphuricum. Taurus rules the adenoids, tonsils and larynx; its main function, however, is corulership with Mercury of the thyroid gland. This gland frequently malfunctions because of severe emotional stress, a lack of sufficient iodine in the diet or a diet that is lacking in fiber and roughage. Very often, by reflex action to Taurus's opposite sign, Scorpio, the thyroid may go hyper- or hypoactive because of colon toxemia.
Some symptoms of a hyperthyroid condition are tenseness, inability to relax, shaking, heart palpita tions, weight decrease, heat intolerance, excessive sweating and increased bowel activity. Unfortunately, few people are aware that their thyroids are hyperactive and blame their nervous conditions on themselves or something within their immediate environment. The mental anguish a hyperthroid can cause is great. Some people feel as if they are tiptoeing on the boundaries of insanity. Getting a T-3, T-4, T-7 blood test to check out the thyroid is easy, quick and worth a person's mental and physical well-being.
Hypothyroid symptoms are obesity, dry skin, lackluster and brittle hair, low blood pressure, slow pulse, sluggishness of all functions and depressed muscular activity. People with hypothyroids feel mentally dull and listless, quickly forgetting what they just said and displaying poor memories in general. These people are sensitive to cold draughts and continually overdress to keep warm. Constipation also tends to be a problem. The congenital form of hypothyroidism is called cretinism. In Canada all babies are given mandatory blood tests to make sure they don't have the disease.
Sun in Taurus
This placement may produce sore throats, nasal mucus, polyps in the throat region or on the vocal cords and diptheria.
The Moon in Taurus can mean sore throats as well as swelling in the throat or ulcers. A person with this configuration in a natal chart is also likely to overeat because of emotional unhappiness.
Hoarseness from nervousness or talking at length, croup, difficulty in swallowing at times, choking on objects and laryngitis are all potential ailments with Mercury in Taurus.
Venus in Taurus
This configuration can indicate swelling in the neck, mumps, thrush or fungus infection of the mouth or throat and abscesses in the pharynx region.
Mars in Taurus may create a hyperthyroid condition, laryngitis, enlarged tonsils, tonsillitis, polyps in the throat area, adenoid problems and inflammation of the nasal passages.
Enlarged adenoids or tonsils, dry coughing spells, sore throats and an enlarged thyroid are possibilities with this placement. People with Jupiter in Taurus also tend to overeat and desire too many rich foods that put on weight.
Saturn in Taurus
This placement may cause phlegm in the throat, a dry cough, loss of voice, choking, suffocation and hypofuncton of the thyroid gland.
Spasm in the thyroid gland, causing it to go from normal to either hyper- or hypoactive, may result from Uranus in Taurus. Stress, especially any sudden or unexpected shock to the system, may cause the thyroid to malfunction. Colon stasis can also contribute to the problem. This placement may produce a sudden loss of voice or hoarseness attributable to nervousness. And there is the potential danger of choking or gagging on objects.
The thyroid may malfunction with this placement, especially during stress. There may be lethargy or loss of memory with a hypothyroid and nervousness and heart pounding with a hyperthyroid. By reflex action to Scorpio, Neptune in Taurus can also mean weak or slowed peristalsis of the large intestine. The result can be toxemia, and as the poisons filter back into the bloodstream, symptoms such as headaches and skin rashes may appear. If the toxemia persists, the entire cardiovascular system may be affected. Glaucoma and/or cataracts may also result if the person has a family history of such ailments.
With Pluto in Taurus there is the possiblity of thyroid complications of a severe and chronic nature as well as polyps, tumors or growths on the vocal cords, thyroid or within the neck region.
