Mercury Jupiter

A hard aspect between Mercury and Jupiter can point to a moderate deficiency of thiamine. If a hard aspect from Saturn is present as well, this deficiency may be caused from a lack of manganese (Jupiter). A lack of vitamin B-6 (Jupiter) can also prevent thiamine from being assimilated properly, causing symptoms, of a thiamine deficiency. Since Jupiter rules Sagittarius, which holds sway over the thigh and sciatica nerve, there may be inflammation of that area without adequate thiamine.

Lack of vitamin B-6 can cause a variety of ailments. For example, since Mercury rules Virgo, diseases such as diabetes, hypoglycemia or pancreatitis may occur when vitamin B-6 is in short supply over a long period. Vitamin B-6 is also known to keep the central nervous system healthy: lack of the vitamin can induce nervousness, a well-known disorder of Mercury. And it is speculated that with Jupiter in Gemini clogging of the arteries could occur from lack of vitamin B-6, causing atherosclerosis.

Since Gemini rules the lungs as well as the bronchi and bronchial tubes, respiratory ailments, indicating a deficiency of pangamic acid (Jupiter), are possible with a hard aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. Especially if Satum is in Gemini, bronchial asthma may occur. Emphysema is also possible with Jupiter in Gemini and an accompanying hard aspect from Neptune—a configuration that that indicates a weakening in that area of the body from distension of the sacs with excess air. With a hard aspect from Saturn and a lack of pangamic acid angina can result, showing constriction that could bring on possible suffocation.

There may also be diseases of the pancreas (Virgo), A potential deficiency of zinc (Jupiter), for example, could manifest a diabetic condition. With a hard aspect from Saturn there could be insufficient manganese to control glucose levels. A lack of chromium (Jupiter) could also affect the glucose process. In addition, there is some speculation that insufficient inositol (Jupiter) can contribute to diabetes. And there is the possibility that biotin (Jupiter) is not being unbound for assimilation, thus affecting the splitting-up process of the pancreas as well as the liver and the intestine: the glands located in the pancreas (the isles of Langerhans) are co-ruled by Jupiter, Cancer and Virgo, so that glucose and insulin production may be affected, pointing a potentially higher need of biotin to keep insulin levels normalized in diabetic cases.

Nerve disorders are other possibilities with a hard aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. Some impairment of the central nervous system has been noted with a lack of biotin. And if either planet is in Virgo, with a hard aspect from Uranus, nerve degeneration or "faulty wiring" is indicated—a condition that can be helped with manganese.

Furthermore, the thyroid, coruled by Mercury and Taurus, may be adversely affected when Mercury is in hard aspect with Jupiter. There is speculation that with an accompanying hard aspect from

Saturn too little cholin (Jupiter) could halt production of tyrosine so that thyroxine would not be available—a condition that could trigger hypothyroidism. If Jupiter is also sextile or trine Pluto, too much manganese may settle in the thyroid. And with a hard aspect from Neptune estrogen supplements may be responsible for towering the basal metabolism of the thyroid.

Finally, an additional hard aspect from Saturn, indicating a deficiency of chromium, could point to liver disorders.
