Uranus in hard aspect with the Sun always indicates that a spasm condition may be present, with the constriction usually taking place when a person is under stress. At such times, an individual will probably need one of the vitamins or minerals ruled by the Sun.

Finally, a Sun-Pluto conjunction is much like a Sun-Mars conjunction. A person with this configuration in a natal chart tends to push to the limits of the body's endurance. Health impairment comes from not recognizing that the body needs periods of recuperation.
The most likely hard aspect between the Ascendant and any planet or luminary to cause health problems is a conjunction. Very few medical problems occur when the Sun is conjunct the Ascendant, unless the Sun has three or more hard aspects to it: in that case, the sign the Sun is posited in can indicate where the ailments are likely to be found. Since the Sun represents the body, a conjunction between the Sun and the Ascendant may mean health problems or bodily weakness that will never be normalized. This person must pamper his or her fragile body to keep healthy.
With a hard aspect between the Moon and Mercury a person may show a propensity toward any of the diseases caused by a lack of thiamine (Mercury). Since the Moon's sign, Cancer, rules the digestive processes in the stomach, hydrochloric acid, which helps to break down the food components properly, may be missing, particularly if Saturn is in Cancer in negative aspect to Mercury. A deficiency of thiamine, can also cause gastric atony, wherein the stomach muscles become weak and flabby, contributing to poor digestion. And the liver, ruled by one of Mercury's signs, Virgo, can suffer from insufficient thiamine. The liver may not be able to produce the coenzymes necessary in the carbohydrate metabolism, a problem that might result in hypoglycemia if Jupiter and/or Saturn is also in the picture.
Since the Moon rules potassium and Virgo guides the small intestine, there is a possibility of tendencies toward constipation because of a lack of the mineral.
