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 remove these symptoms.
For example, Ipecac, if taken in a large quantity, will produce vomiting. Yet, when it's taken in minute doses, it cures vomiting.
There are over 2200 homeopathic remedies—all from nature in some form. The homeopathic physician is a graduate of a recognized medical school. Any substance might be used homeopathi-cally but most are from the vegetable, animal and mineral sources which are broken down into minute quantities to stimulate the patient's own defense and immune mechanisms. This is the only type of medicine in the world that activates the immune system into lightning response and without the use of crude drugs which have proven damaging side affects. Homeopathic remedies do not cause allopathic drug reactions and will be passed off as minute amounts of a natural substance by the body, instead. For this reason, homeopathic remedies are perfectly safe to take. There is no drug-like reaction, no covering up of symptoms or allergic reactions as can be experienced by modern drug pharmaceuticals dispensed to the allopathic doctors in the U.S.
With few exceptions, substances prepared according to the specifications or the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the U.S. properly maintained and protected from contamination, retain their therapeutic effectiveness INDEFINITELY. The amount of the original substance in homeopathic medicine is reduced by the decimal scale and is indicated by a number and the letter "X", "C" or "M". A 3X potency means there is one part of the remedy with nine parts milk lactose or sucrose. A "C" would mean there is one part of the remedy substance mixed with ninety-nine parts of lactose or sucrose. An "M" means one part remedy to nine hundred ninety-nine parts of sucrose or lactose. In a process that is known as "trituration", the ingredients are mixed and prepared in FDA approved homeopathic pharmacies in the U.S. It is then sold to anyone, including lay homeopaths and homeopathic doctors, without a prescription. The "C" range and the "M" range are considered high dosages and should be used only by a homeopathic doctor or lay practitioner.
A homeopathic medicate is always referred to as a "remedy" to distinguish it from the crude drugs sold at drug stores as either prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs. A remedy may be taken without interference or chemical inter-reaction with any crude drug that is being taken simultaneously; although the ideal situation is to be in the hands of a homeopathic doctor.
Homeopathy, with its single purpose of attention to the WHOLE human being and the prescribing of the remedy to trigger the person's immune system to begin its own curative process, is a medical philosophy which is recognized and extensively used by physicians throughout the world.
One of the many Aquarium Age concepts regarding homeopathic medicine is that homeopathic doctors strive to teach the lay people how to recognize and use homeopathic remedies on themselves, their family and friends who ask for help. Quite often a lay homeopath will teach interested people in his or her area. And then, the lay people will gather weekly to discuss different case histories they are currently treating (on themselves or their family and/or friends) and they enlarge upon their wealth of knowledge, becoming even better lay practitioners. This is certainly one of the finest Aquarian concepts of groups getting together to help one another.
The National Center for Homeopathy ("NCH") offers courses to interested lay individuals (you need no previous medical experience or education—just a desire to learn homeopathy) once a year. This one week intensive course is highly recommended to anyone who stumbles onto the miraculous healing abilities of this 21st century medicine. Books on the topic can be ordered through NCH or Hahnemann Pharmacy (addresses in Appendix). Household kits are also sold by both of these organizations and are available for purchase by anyone.
The astrology of homeopathy is very complex and not easily applied. The entire philosophy of homeopathy embraces and honors the individual and his/her symptoms—spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. Astrology does the same thing. Both methodologies are holistic. To try and combine them is something that will take a lot of study and time. Probably the ONLY way a sure-fire method will be found will be based upon the vibrational frequency of each individual remedy and compare it to the frequency of the individual planets, signs and aspects. Radionics offers us this possibility, but has yet to come about.
Until someone is able to do this, I have, over the years, seen certain signatures of either signs, planets or houses that typify certain homeopathic remedies. There is no formula in applying what I've found, so please don't try to make a certain remedy conform to your natal chart. The information I present below on the astrological basis is theory only. When I "take a case" homeopathically speaking, I do look at a person's natal chart. I don't prescribe a remedy based upon the chart, however. To do so is a slap in the face to the homeopathic way of honoring the individual, I offer the astrological information in hopes that some like-minded researcher will take the observations and work with them further. I'm sure that someday, someone will write a book that compares the 2200 known homeopathic remedies to astrological nomenclature.
FIRST AID AND ACUTE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR EVERYONE;
There is no reliable astrological formula to figure out which remedy goes to which zodiacal sign-so far. It is not reliable, except in general terms. The best way to approach this is to find the planet in the chart with the most hard aspects (usually, three or more hard aspects). Go through the remedies below and look at the ones that have that planet and/or sign and read it. If most of your symptoms fit the remedy "picture", then there is a possibility that you may need it. However, consult with your homeopath FIRST. Do not take any homeopathic remedy without a practitioner's direction.
ACONITUM NAPELLUS (Uranus, Mars, 12th House)
The "personality" of Aconite is one of suddenness, surprise, shock and trauma. This remedy, made from the herb bearing the same name, is of immense help for people who have suffered a heart attack or stroke. It is also used as a "shock" remedy—if someone has an accident and is in shock. Or, it can be used for those who experience any kind of shock, including bad news, a divorce, separation, firing from a job, move to another city or state, etc. Mentally, the person is restless and nervous. There may be an overriding fear of death or of dying present. It is one of the great remedies for panic attacks or anxiety attacks. Aconite works especially well on any illness that comes on suddenly, without warning, or from a change in the weather. Eye inflammation or pain Sudden onset of first stage of cold or fever Croup (if it does not work within 2 hours, try Hepar Sulph. or Spongia—all 3 are Croup remedies) Earache (if pain persists after an hour, give Hypericum )

For fear of surgery or of going to the dentist (give 1 hour before)
In shock from fear of any sort (or any kind of trauma that produces fear)

ANTIMONIUM TARTARCUM (Neptune)
This remedy is made from double tartrate of antimony and potassium. It is for anyone who experiences great exhaustion, drowsiness or debility when ill. Like Neptune, which can be translated into "weak," Ant. Tart, is a premier lung and respiratory disease remedy—especially if there is a lot of rattling sounds in the chest, but with little expectoration (mucus) being coughed up. The greater the prostration of the person, especially from viral or bacterial complaints—Neptune's realm—the more this remedy should be thought about in those situations—providing the symptom picture fits. Bronchitis Pneumonia Emphysema Asthma, "dry" type
Person is usually pale and tired looking Lung congestion (rattling of mucus but won't dislodge) ■,
Shortness of breath
APIS MELLIFICA (Moon, Mars)
One of the great allergy reaction remedies, Apis is made from the venom of the honeybee. Where there is sudden, violent swelling of body tissue, Apis should be considered. Anti-phalactic reaction to any kind of allergy, Apis can be used to save a life, if necessary.

ARNICA MONTANA (Mars, Saturn)
Made from a plant bearing the same name, there is probably no broader based remedy than this one. Arnica's sphere is usually muscle injuries, but also works well on injured tendons, ligaments and inflammation around joints/bones in particular. It is a premier remedy to halt hemorrhages, from acute nose bleeds to people who are known as "bleeders" or hemophiliacs.
Eases pain, swelling or soreness associated with sprains, bruises, muscles, falls, fractures (Symphytum to mend the break itself) or any kind of blow resulting from an accident Concussion

Spinal injuries (use Hypericum if pain persists) Shock (when there has been blood loss) Abscess (bluish color to it, deep inflammation and pain)
Bloodshot eyes NOTE: Arnica ointment can be spread on the skin. If an open wound, place around the outer edges and it will instantly reduce swelling/bruising. Never put Arnica tincture or any Arnica product into an open wound or laceration!! Wonderful for fingers crushed in car door, finger smashed by hammer or any other similar type of blow to any part of the body (I would also use some Hypericum to stop the pain.) For black eye, smear ointment around affected 3r63t but never in the eye itself»
ARSENICUM (Mercury, Pluto, Virgo, 12th House)
Arsenicum is made from arsenic poison. In the small doses utilized in homeopathy, it poses no threat to the individual taking it.

BELLADONNA (Mercury, Mars, Uranus)
Belladonna is made from the herb by the same name. It is for people who have a highly sensitized nervous system, who start if jarred, who are like barometers reacting instantly to any kind of change. Anyone who experiences a sudden onset of symptoms, no matter what they are, should think of Belladonna and/or Aconite. These people are like highly strung thoroughbreds and just as mettlesome at times.
Earaches (usually right ear) but can help stop possible shunt surgery

Sensitive to noise and light

BELLIS PERENNIS (Mars)
Follows Arnica well, especially if Arnica does not take care of swelling or bruising a week after the surgery or injury.
BRYONIA ALBA (Saturn, Cancer)
Known as the "grump" remedy, this fits Cancer very well by nature. When ill, these people want to be left alone—untouched, in a dark, quiet room. They will lay beneath a pile of covers, unmoving. Bryonia is one of the great migraine remedies of all time, along with Gelsemium.
