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 achieved within the body. Synthetic nutrients can be taken without any problems.
On the other hand, Jupiter in adverse aspect to Saturn can indicate halted growth, stagnation, inhibited activity or death—and poor absorption of nutrients. If a person has Jupiter square or incon-junct Saturn, that individual should avoid taking synthetic supplements or should take as few as possible. Instead, 100 per cent natural supplements as well as a diet rich in those nutrients should be considered.
A person who has Jupiter either conjunct or in opposition to Saturn has to decide if there is a nutritional deficiency that involves one of the planets. If there is, the deficiency may be mild and easily corrected by diet alone: supplements may not even be needed.
Jupiter in hard aspect with Saturn may also indicate a diabetic-hypoglycemic combination, particularly if the planets are square or inconjunct. If the sign Libra is involved, the carbohydrate metabolism may be interfered with, possibly from a deficiency of chromium (Jupiter). And if one of the planets is in Libra, there is the potential for a lack of manganese (Jupiter) that may upset the glucose metabolism.
A deficiency of vitamin B-6 (Jupiter) is another possibility when Jupiter is in hard aspect with Saturn. Since Saturn is concerned with the skin and bones of the body, insufficient vitamin B-6 can induce seborrhea, acne or dermatitis. If the Sun is also in hard aspect, the lack of vitamin B-6 may be accompanied by an undersupply of magnesium (Sun), precipitating a loss of calcium (Saturn). With Jupiter or Saturn in Libra and a trine aspect from Mars to Jupiter, there may be high intake of phosphorus (Mars) and not enough calcium to balance the phosphorus out, thus creating kidney calcification.
On the other hand, a Jupiter-Saturn hard aspect can signify an overabundance of calcium, especially if Saturn is also trine Pluto. Too much calcium can result in deficiencies of manganese and zinc, both ruled by Jupiter. An inhibited intake of zinc can result in stunted bone growth or possibly dwarfism. With a hard aspect from Mars there is the further possibility of underdevelopment of the male genitalia as well as weakened sexual interest.
Whenever Jupiter is involved, diseases of the liver may also be suspect. With a hard aspect to Saturn and a deficiency of vitamin K (Saturn), there may be jaundice problems. Glycogen conversion may also be inhibited. Furthermore, biotin (Jupiter) may be lacking so that sulfur (Saturn) is not assimilated or utilized properly: without ample sulfur the ability of the liver to make bile for secretion into the duodenum may be impaired. There may also be a lack of lecithin in the bile to break down the fats, indicating a vitamin B-6 deficiency as a root cause. And there is conjecture that a potential lack of inositol (Jupiter) could affect the liver.
Depending on what signs the planets are posited in, a hard aspect between Jupiter and Saturn can hint at various other disorders. If either planet is in Capricorn or Cancer, absorption of fat (the lipids) may be hindered; or this position could signify a lack of gastric enzymes in the stomach for the unbinding of biotin, since Cancer rules the stomach; or the configuration could mean formation of gallstones because of Saturn's calcification aspect and because Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, governs the gallbladder. But if either planet is in Libra, kidney stones are possibilities, or the kidneys could be affected by a deficiency of inositol. Either planet in Taurus might result in dysfunctioning thyroid. With either planet in Gemini there may be cyanosis. Either planet in Leo or its opposite polarity, Aquarius, could indicate lack of oxygen, causing heart angina. And Saturn in Aquarius could mean too little oxygen is available, necessitating deep breathing exercises.
Other potential problems with a hard aspect between Jupiter and Saturn are the buildup of cholesterol deposits from insufficient vitamin C (Saturn) and manganese, especially if one of the planets is in Taurus or Leo; atherosclerosis induced by lack of vitamin C and in turn causing loss of arterial strength and allowing plaque to accumulate; fragile arteries or arteries that lose their elasticity (atherosclerosis) because of insufficient bioflavonoids (Saturn); skin problems, such as eczema, dermatitis and seborrhea, resulting from a lack of biotin; tooth enamel or bone problems from too much fluorine (Saturn), if an aspect from Pluto is present; lack of absorption of PABA (Saturn) or a larger need of PABA; and insufficient cholin (Jupiter).
