Since Libra rules the kidneys, it's an important sign to consider in medical astrology. The elimination of poisonous waste material is essential to life. Without the kidney's filtering capacity to clean blood during a 24-hour period we would be dead in a relatively short time.
Because of the kinds of food we consume today, the miles of tubules within each kidney can potentially become blocked with debris such as cholesterol, calcium or other waste. Debris that should have been plucked out of the bloodstream and filtered down through the ureters to the bladder to be emptied out of the body may swing back into the circulation. A gradual poisoning then occurs.
The symptoms of partially blocked kidneys are numerous. Although there may not be inflammation or nephritis, there can be lower back pain or a minor aching sensation in the region of one or both kidneys. Other potential problems include edema, weight gain and the inability to loose it, mild to severe headaches, adrenal gland stress and skin rashes ranging from dryness to dermatitis and eczema.
Blood disorders varying from simple anemias to a pseudoleukemia and high white blood cell counts can also be caused by a malfunctioning kidney. Such ailments are usually blamed on the spleen: sometimes, when a doctor cannot find the reason a person has a dangerously high white blood cell count, he or she will remove the spleen in an effort to halt the formation of the cells. Actually, though, the reason the body manufactures many more white blood cells is to fight the infection that is flowing through the body in the form of toxemia. Manufacturing white blood cells is the body's main way of combating something that the body automatically realizes could kill it. At the same time the person may experience soreness of the lymph glands, swelling or even lumps that are often mistaken for cancerous tumors. Other symptoms, such as continual colds, sniffles and stuffy sinus conditions, can be signs of toxicity as well.
Libra also rules the basal metabolism, specifically the acid-alkaline metabolism. A person who is a heavy meat eater may get acidosis: meat is very high in acidic properties that build up in a person's system. When the body is unable to supply enough alkalinity, the result is nervousness without reason, insomnia or unrestful sleep, tenseness and the inability to relax, headaches and heartburn.
