Bones: Clavicle, scapula, humerus, radius, ulna, carpal and metacarpal bones and upper ribs.
Muscles: Deltoid, biceps, supinator radii, subclavians, triceps, serratus anticus minor, pectoralis and palmaris.
Arteries: Subclavians, brachial, right and left bronchials, intercostals, radials and ulnars.
Veins: Pulmonary, basilic, subclavians, azygos, vein of the thymus and mediastinum.
Gemini rules the hands, arms, shoulders (with the exception of the sternum and breastbone, ruled by Cancer) and central nervous system in general. But it has the much more subtle and important job of governing the tubes of the body—not the arteries or the veins but the eustachian tubes of the ears, the fallopian tubes connected with the uterus, the bronchial tubes of the lungs, the trachea, the ureter tubes from the kidneys to the bladder and the urethra from the bladder to its outside opening.
The lungs also fall under Gemini's domain. Whereas Sagittarius represents exhaled breath, Gemini represents inhaled breath. This oxygenation that reaches the blood is of utmost concern: without proper amounts of oxygen, a person will feel mentally dull and tired.
The Sun in Gemini may produce bronchitis, nervous disorders, pleurisy, hyperventilation, shallow breathing that should be deepened to get proper amounts of oxygen into the bloodstream and injuries to the arms and fingers.
Female complaints involving the fallopian tubes, the erratic flow of the menstrual blood that can be corrected with kali muriaticum, edema of the lungs, pneumonia and varicose aneurysms are all potential ailments with this placement.
This configuration can mean pains in the arms, lungs and hands of a nerve-related origin as well as bronchitis, intercostal pain, asthma and pleurisy.
With Venus in Gemini whitlow or inflammation and suppuration from the fingers as well as papilloma or tumors of the skin or mucous membrane of the hands and arms are possibilities.
This placement can indicate disorders of the nervous system, cuts, fractures and wounds of the arms, hands and collar bone, bronchial congestion, acute pneumonia and acute pains in the lungs or extremities.
Jupiter in Gemini
Blood and lung disorders, hemorrhaging in the lungs, pleurisy and arterial ailments may result from Jupiter in Gemini.
This configuration may produce a myriad of ailments; constriction of some tube in the body; partial blockage of a small opening by either a stone or other sedimentary waste that has not been washed out of the body; rheumatism or arthritis of the arms, hands or shoulders; dislocation of the arm or shoulder; chronic bronchitis, pneumonia or emphysema; tuberculosis; lung congestion, fibrosis of the lungs or tumors in the lungs; and nervous trembling from a lack of calcium and manganese to feed the nervous system.
Uranus in Gemini can signify the spasmodic constriction of one of the tubes of the body: in a woman, it may be the fallopian tubes that constrict, resulting in tubal pregnancies. Cramps or spasms in the hands and arms are also possible, as are spasms in the ureters or urethra, spasms that can cause renal retention or recurrent bladder infections.
Weakness of one or more tubes in the body is possible with this placement. There may also be poor oxygen capacity in the lungs: deep breathing and physical exercise will expand and strengthen the lungs. In addition, there is the potential for chest colds and continued bouts with pneumonia in childhood, lung sensitivity to pollution and lung ailments, such as emphysema, caused by smoking.
With Pluto in Gemini the tubes of the body may experience blockage because of tumors or cysts in them. There may also be fallopian tube blockage preventing pregnancy. Chronic lung, arm or hand ailments are other possibilities.
Bones: Sternum, ensiform cartilage and part of the ribs.
Muscles: Diaphragm and intercostals.
Arteries: Axillary, diaphragmatic, posterior mediastines and esophagian.
Veins: Diaphragmatic, gastric, gastroepiploic and mammary.
Cell Salt: Calcarea fluorica.
Cancer rules a wide and varied array of functions. It has domain over coverings such as the brain, lung and heart membranes, sinus cavities, eyeballs, bone marrow, the cheeks of the face and the glycogen storage within the liver. Anemia, as brought about by the marrow of the bones, also comes under Cancer's dominion. And during pregnancy the womb comes under its rulership because the womb"contains" the fetus; when not in use, the womb reverts to the do main of Scorpio. In addition, Cancer rules the posterior pituitary gland where many hormonal functions take place, as well as the breasts, sternum and chest.
Cancer's primary rulership, however, is of the stomach and the digestive processes that take place within the organ. The action of Cancer is said to involve digestive ailments, gastric mucus, dipsomania and craving for alcoholic beverages. Such malfunctioning can be triggered, in part, by improper storage and release of glycogen via the liver. Furthermore, lack of one of the many gastric juices, such as the intrinsic factor, which aids vitamin B-12 and iron to be assimilated into the body, or hydrochloric acid, needed to break down meat to get valuable proteins, will cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
The peristaltic action of the stomach is ruled by Cancer (whereas the antiperistaltic action falls under the dominion of Capricorn and Saturn). Without good, thorough peristalsis the food is not broken down properly before entering the duodenum and intestinal tract where nutrition is absorbed and used by the body.
Sun in Cancer '
This placement may cause dyspepsia (imperfect digestion in the stomach) breast disorders and edema caused by the hypofunctioning of the pituitary gland or lack of sufficient potassium (Moon) to regulate the balance with sodium in the body.
With the Moon in Cancer there may be general problems with overweight. A person may put on weight because of emotional stress, or there may be tendencies towards edema. Furthermore, there can be an imbalance in the sodium-potassium exchange or a weak kidney that does not empty out waste properly. A person may be prone to sickness of an acute nature. And the tympanic or ear drum covering may cause partial loss of hearing.
Indigestion, gas or cramping of the stomach brought on by emotional duress as well as bloating of the stomach or distension caused by gas related to nervous disorders are potential symptoms of this configuration.
Venus in Cancer can indicate nausea and vomiting, cysts on the breasts, swelling of the breasts five days before the menstrual cycle and a potential deficiency of vitamin B-6.
the Mars in Cancer
"no This placement may produce ulcers in the stomach or a sensitive or touchy stomach. Moreover, die walls of the stomach may be irritable or prone to the inflammation from spicy foods, or there may be lace vomiting from emotional stress.
Jupiter in Cancer mc- Jupiter in Cancer may result in edema, digestive aSe disorders from overeating, stretching of the stomach
>re> and hiatus hernia. A person with this placement
•n- should eat small, frequent meals rather than three be large ones a day.
V>H Saturn in Cancer
With this configuration there may be loss of ap-by petite from emotional strain as well as low ier hydrochloric acid levels in the stomach, producing
'"t poor digestive processes. The gastric secretions in the en stomach may be below normal standards, and if they n- are, there can be gastric complaints, bloating, croup by in babies, poor digestion of food and, therefore, an
■ inability of nutrients to get back into the body. | Saturn in Cancer can also produce anemia brought on because the intrinsic factor is hypofunctioning. ct Vitamin B-12 and iron may be poorly assimilated in-
ia to the body. And there may be tumors or cysts in the
:d breast region.
Uranus in Cancer
Spasms in the stomach, stomach cramps brought on by emotional duress, spasmodic release J of gastric juices depending on emotional stress, poor digestion and a "nervous" or "hourglass" stomach are all potential symptoms of Uranus in Cancer.
\eptune in Cancer
This placement can mean weak peristalsis of the stomach during the digestion phase and diluted gastric juices when liquids are drunk with meals, thus interfering with digestion. In addition, there may be a weakened ovary condition that creates cysts in the reproductive area as well as a weakened state of any covering rule by Cancer in general.
A woman who has this placement conjunct the Ascendant may have problems with water-weight gain, commonly known as edema. The root cause may well be the posterior pituitary "going out" after the woman gives birth: the basal metabolism is upset and there is weight gain and the inability to lose weight. The ADH factor could be tested at the discretion of an endocrine specialist, since it has control over how much or how little water is released from the body through the kidneys. A secondary possibility is the TSH factor that affects the thyroid: TSH may not be released properly and a hypothyroid condition may be responsible for the weight gain,
