The Sun is the source of your vital power, principally ruling
the brain and heart in man and woman. Its sign location
(zodiac Sun sign), aspects to other planets, and house
position indicate the vitality of the body, especially in
males. The Sun is thus the indicator of health in males, while
the Moon governs health matters in females. However, the Sun
and Moon are important in health matters in both sexes. The
Sun signs and Moon signs at birth, along with their aspects
and positions, are regarded as the "fountains of life on
Earth". The Sun is one of the vital centers in a star map,
along with the Moon, Ascendant (rising sign), and Midheaven
The power of the Sun and how it radiates within you can be
thought of as light rays emanating from a light bulb, powering
into your body. The Sun signs are divided into the Four
Elements: FIRE (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius); AIR (Gemini, Libra,
Aquarius); WATER (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces); and EARTH (Taurus,
Virgo, Capricorn). All males born with the Sun in fire signs
have the best prospects for good vitality, as light radiates
most freely in a body composed of the fire element. Light also
radiates freely in air, and these natives are the next
strongest, but air sign people become weakened by worry and
nervousness. They need rest to recuperate. The earth element
for sunlight is linked with the densest matter, gives
tenacity, wear and tear, rather than vitality. Theses
individuals tend to recovery slowly from their illnesses. The
water element for transmission of sunlight gives the weakest
constitution, being a more difficult medium to manifest light
The Sun is the giver of life, but is quite impersonal in its
influence that the average man or woman rarely contacts its
higher qualities in a conscious or positive sense. Planetary
aspects, even if hard (square or opposite), are better than no
aspects at all, as in the latter, the native is hardly touched
at all by its influence. This fact is the reason "Sun sign"
prophecies found in the tabloids and daily paper make no sense
to some individuals. When well placed, however, it signifies
will power, authority, and self-reliance. If afflicted by the
Moon or Ascendant, it will make the health feeble and the
The Sun rules the metabolic fires of your body's cells. Its
placement represents how that energy is needed and
distributed. This topic has been termed PHOTOBIOTICS by the
author. All biologic life is ruled by the Sun. Your body
requires copious quantities of light from many sources to
maintain your health, vitality, and beauty. Each Sun sign has
recommended foods that tend to foster vitality, as well as
dietary pointers, and warnings about certain foods that will
disturb your body's distribution of the Sun's vital rays,
indicative by your Sun's zodiac placement (the season of the
year in which you were born).
In terms of the Zodiac, the twelve signs represent the Grand
Man, and rule the different parts of the body, from head as in
Aries, to toe as in Pisces. Thus, there is a zodiacal
rulership over the body and its organs. In terms of Sun signs
and rising signs, it represents where disease potential
exists. The locations and transits represent how an organ or
bowel will be afflicted since these are rotating, dynamic
entities. The houses at birth, signify why disorders will
Inharmonious aspects to the Sun are angles and locations of
the other planets in their orbits in relationship to the Sun.
They are called afflictions. For example, if the Sun is
afflicted by a hard angle to the Moon, the health will be
weak, and the rays of the Sun will be on the cold side, the
eyesight will suffer.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Vitality, the absorption of prana
through the spleen, the immune system, heart function, spine
and back, eyesight, individual cellular metabolism, the blood
and oxygenation, consciousness.
SUN in VIRGO
For those with Sun in Virgo the hub of the universe is work
through service and knowledge. The symbol of this sign is the
virgin with grains in her hands, representing wisdom from the
fields of experience. In Virgo the need is to find ways to put
one's individual talents to the best possible use and it is
why Virgo is known as the sign of service. The key phrase for
Virgo is "I analyze". For many Virgos, the need is satisfied
by pursuing careers in the health sciences or in other areas
such as teaching, labor relations, environmental protection,
social work, or religious counseling.
Virgos adapt to change instinctively, and are responsive to
the needs of others. They usually adapt to different people
and changing circumstances by finding ways to make themselves
useful. They are known to be meticulous and in its best form
they are efficient and perform duties very well. Their world
is subject to microscopic analysis, and they become engrossed
in trivialities leading to worry and ill-health. Virgo bodies
reject artificial medicines and foods. Food in general is
harmful to them when upset or angry.
Normally, Virgos are health conscious, and many make an effort
to stay physically fit, becoming picky eaters, if not food
faddists. Many adapt to routine exercise or other activities.
This sign has a unique resistance to disease once the mind is
disciplined by becoming dispassionate in evaluating the
performance of others as well as themselves. Foolish fears and
apprehensions soon lead Virgos into early invalidism. These
individuals are also susceptible to suggestion, especially in
health matters, and should choose their doctor carefully.
Each sign has internal, external and structural rulerships.
Internally, Virgo rules the abdominal region, large and small
intestines, spleen, solar plexus, lower lobes of the liver,
pancreas, portal veins, and has some influence on the
generative organs. Externally, it rules the umbilicus, hands,
and nails. Structurally, it rules the carpal bones.
Virgo colors are blue, yellow, gray, tan, navy, and lilac,
while their benefiting color is turquoise. Virgo's birthstones
include agate, sardonyx and aventurine. These individuals
should remember only to wear these stones if they wish to
bring that particular influence into their life. Flowers and
plants for Virgo include the aster, chrysanthemum, ivy, fern,
lemon balm and cypress.
BENEFICIAL BACH FLOWER ESSENCES:
Beech: Intolerance, criticism, passes judgments, demands
Pine: Self-blame, over conscientious, critical of others,
exhaustion, over apologetic.
HOMEOPATHIC POLYCREST REMEDY: Nux vomica - Used in the
treatment of nausea, indigestion, "hangover headaches",
CELL SALT: Kali sulphuricum
HEALING NOTE: C#
AROMAS: Caraway, clary sage, costmary, cypress, dill, fennel,
lemon balm, honeysuckle, oak moss, patchouli.
PHOTOBIOTICS: The main problem of those with Sun in Virgo is
digestion. The native should chew food thoroughly, eat at
regular intervals, and do not drink cold liquids with meals.
Virgos should not eat too many raw foods, vegetables should be
lightly steamed for better assimilation. They should eat
greens like spinach, lettuce, green beans, as well as brown
rice, bulghur wheat, millet and lentils to stabilize their
blood sugar. Water should be drunk at room temperature, as
cold drinks will weaken their digestive powers. Virgos tend to
suffer from potassium deficiency. Foods like celery, tomatoes,
apples, and bananas benefit them.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Throat
AFFLICTIONS: Cancer; catarrh of the bowels, poor assimilation
of food, colitis, diarrhea, constipation; hypochondria,
chronic disease; peritonitis, dysentery; hypoglycemia or
diabetes; food allergies.
Your Sun sign indicates constitutional vigor and its elemental
quality (fire, air, water, earth), your Moon sign shows the
flow of this vital force and your health. The Moon
predominates health matters in the female chart, as well as
those caught under the influence of its emotional force. A
disturbed flow of the vital force, ruled by the Moon, will
cause fluctuations in vitality and ultimately disease. Your
Moon sign and its aspects shows your instinctive, reflex
actions, and your habits (good or bad). Moon patterns are
reactions and habits set up in childhood, and become fixed
unless acted upon by the individual themselves. Its location,
aspects, and afflictions are one of the most important factors
to consider in the health chart.
The Moon represents the personal habits, suffering, worry, and
disease tendencies. The Moon sign is always very sensitive and
represents the weakest part of the body. Operations should not
be performed when the Moon is passing through the native's
sign. The Moon rules the body's fluids, lymphatics, and the
natural power of each organ, including its expulsive or
detoxifying powers. Acquired and destructive habits are
generally under the influence of the Moon sign. It rules the
period of life from one to seven years, when so many
destructive habits and health patterns are acquired, as for
example from the parents or guardians. It shows what type of
habits you may develop and how they affect your health.
Moon diseases today predominate the health chart. The Moon has
a special affinity for the eyes and eye disorders, defects and
errors of accommodation, putrefaction of the bowels,
autointoxication; and disorders or the breasts, womb, and
stomach. Moon forces harden and crystallize the body with age.
Moon dominated persons are inconstant, restless, changeable,
and variable, and succumb easily to infectious illnesses,
colds and flu. The Moon rules the stomach. Today we see
swollen abdomens due to excessive eating. Full, round bellies
with visual defects reflect just how Moon bound and
problematic the aspects of this orbital body is in the health
The Moon afflicts other planets and signs by its oppositions
and squares. Ill-aspects show an inclination to little or no
exercise. The less afflictions in the female nativity, the
better a chance of a long and prosperous life. The Moon sign
signifies diseases that are acquired after birth, particularly
due to indiscretions, bad habits, and emotional proclivities.
It rules the natural powers and immunity. Cancer, the
malignant disease, is a Moon disease, and is prevalent in our
mood-based society of foul language, nasty thoughts, toxic
diet, and bad habits.
It should be noted whether the Moon is above the horizon at
birth (waxing) or below the horizon at birth (waning). The
health will be stronger with the Moon above the horizon,
rather than below. Hard aspects (afflictions) are not as
strong when the Moon in waxing or increasing in light.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: The Moon rules diseases that are
periodic, return time and again, as in epilepsy, vertigo,
menstrual problems, swellings, migraine headaches, and gout.
Rheumatism is a Moon disease, caused by the retention of
wastes in the joints and fascia. Cancer is a Moon disease,
caused not only by retention of wastes but also morbid
bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Moon diseases today are
epidemic, as obesity, lymphatic stasis, tissue puffiness,
autointoxication, fungal/zymotic disorders, and worm
infestation affect nearly all industrial populations. Moon
diseases are accentuated by working under artificial lights or
at night, drinking water from underground pipes and/or
obtained from recycled wastes, eating devitalized food stored
in refrigerators and freezers, breathing stale, foul or
polluted air; and eating slaughterhouse meats.
The foods and spices that benefit Moon afflictions are those
ruled by the Sun and Mars. The Sun produces fruits and
vegetables which when eaten raw and/or fresh, will vitalize
the individual and ward off disease. The old adage, fresh is
best, aptly applies to the health rules.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Lymphatic system, breasts, mucous
membranes, menstruation/fertility/uterus in pregnancy, stomach
and alimentary tract.
ARE YOU A SUN OR MOON DOMINATED PERSON ?
The night is ruled by the Moon, and the Sun rules the day. The
ancient astrologers believed that those born during the day
are more ruled by the Sun, whereas those born at night are
more ruled by the Moon. Moon activities tend to raise the
action of morbid germs, while the electric action of the day
tends to destroy them. Night activities are less vitalizing
than daytime activities. Females and Moon people tend to
suffer more at night when ill. Moon people are more restless,
inconstant, and changeable. The Moon rules the personality and
lower mind, while the Sun rules the intellect and higher mind.
Health tends to return when one begins to "see the light".
MOON in CAPRICORN
The Moon in Capricorn indicates a cold, calculating side to
the native's nature. Tact and diplomacy are characteristic,
along with a streak of timidity or fear. Their complicated
emotional nature must be handled with considerable patience
and understanding. They find it hard to relate to those who do
not share their opinions and values. They have a tendency to
constantly worry and may refuse to admit it or even be aware
of it. They have very little feeling for themselves and
perhaps none at all for others. It is never very easy for them
to express their deepest emotions, to feel relaxed and content
inside themselves. Fear of rejection is strong. When it comes
to romance and marriage, it may take them a long time to find
someone they can love as well as trust. Their complicated
emotional nature takes a strong toll on their health,
especially if afflicted, and leads to chronic forms of
The physical ailments of this Moon sign are diverse,
especially if the Moon is afflicted with hard aspects to
Saturn or Mars. This position also has a detrimental effect
upon the digestion. The native tends to catch cold easily,
accumulates mucus, and has pale skin with a poor complexion.
They are prone to obesity and abdominal distention with
bloating and belching. Women in this sign are subject to
painful and irregular menstruation due to worry and anxiety.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Kidneys, knees, thighs.
AFFLICTIONS: Eye trouble, constipation, gall stones, and
wounds that tend to heal slowly, backaches and lameness about
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Mustards, garlic, onion, leeks, watercress,
cayenne pepper, olive, sunflower seeds, almonds and walnuts.
FOODS TO AVOID: Dairy products should be avoided as they
increase mucus production and phlegm.
RASHI HOMEOPATHIC MIXTURE: Secale cornutum, acid muriaticum,
cocculus, ambra grisea, acid nitricum, arsenicum album,
Mercury, when well placed in the nativity chart, indicates a
good and balanced mind. It rules the cerebral hemispheres.
Ill-aspected and afflicted, it shows a tendency to various
disorders of mental reasoning, bad judgment, nervous disease,
and tendency to gamble, swindle, insomnia, and a lack of
spiritual calm. The location in the chart shows what body
parts may be prone to neuralgia.
Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, therefore it manifests in
diseases related to respiratory and digestive disorders,
particularly of nervous origin. Physiologically, Mercury rules
the respiration and breath. Mercury afflicted at birth
indicates a tendency to shallow breathing. The Hindus believe
rhythmic breathing is necessary for direct link between the
soul and mind. Unrhythmic breathing severs this connection
leading to nervous conditions, those easily influenced by
others, proneness to depression, and even insanity. Proper and
unregulated breathing beginning in early life leads to a
cascade of pathological actions including lack of intellectual
development, oxygen deficient blood, tendency to overeat since
the diaphragm does not "massage" the stomach due to stifled
breathing, lymphatic stasis since breathing opens the lymph
channels, and lethargy due to lack of vital force and sluggish
pranic currents. Mercury placement indicates much more than
the mundane astrology books indicate.
Mercury is considered a neutral planet, in that its
transmissions are governed by the aspects to other planets in
the chart. When Mercury conjuncts the Sun, the ego is
involved; aspected to the Moon, the subconscious and habits;
to Jupiter, exaggeration, etc. When Mercury's nervous messages
are distorted by the rays of another planet, inaccurate
reception of information and inappropriate neural commands are
likely. Simply, response does not match stimulus resulting in
unbalanced behavior. If the large planets are involved, this
can translate into important health consequences.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Mercury's chief influence is on the
nerves. In regards to aches and pains, the placement of
Mercury in the sign of body rulership shows tendency to
affliction when ill-aspected. Thus, Mercury in Aries shows the
tendency to headaches, in Taurus a tendency to laryngitis and
sore throats, in Gemini chest pains, etc. To offset Mercury
afflictions and thus reduce tendency to aches and pains, the
native must learn proper and rhythmic breathing. Taking up
study of yoga or Chinese Ch'i Kung would be of great benefit.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Nervous system, nervous faculties;
breathing, the hands, the touch; organs of speech and hearing.
MERCURY in VIRGO
Mercury in Virgo is exalted, consequently when well-aspected
it indicates a clear, logical, scientific mind, and the
ability and eloquence to express oneself fluently in a number
of languages. These individuals have sharp, analytical
abilities. It gives these people comprehensive, discriminating
outlooks on life, and conclusions that are usually practical
and to the point. When Mercury is afflicted in Virgo it makes
these individuals irritable, critical and selfish. People with
Mercury in Virgo make excellent dietitians and chemists. They
also have unusual dexterity and their curiosity leads them
down many paths, mentally as well as physically. This position
can indicate hyperinsulinism which means drops in blood sugar,
hypoglycemia, and tendency to gain weight. The native should
drink adequate amounts of water (6-8 glasses daily), and
especially a glass of water when the hunger sensation arises.
This can offset those "sugar blues" and ward off excessive
eating. The native should also avoid washing with animal based
tallow-bar soaps to maintain a good complexion.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Head, breast, heart.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Bowel disorders with nervous
indigestion, constipation, flatulence and "wind colic",
gastroenteritis, diarrhea, obstruction, parasite infection;
nervous debility and mental strain, shallow breathing with
lack of vitality, an overactive mind; bad complexion; and
affections of the heart.
NERVINES: Dill, almonds, celery juice.
From the days of Hippocrates, father of Western medicine
(Fifth century B. C.), the ancients emphasized the value of
diet and exercise as the prime methods of restoration of
health and longevity. The ancient figurines of women, known as
the "Venus statues", depict a bottom heavy, obese figure of a
woman. Some of these Paleolithic figurines are believed to be
more than 20,000 years old. They are found in all areas of
Europe, as far away as Russia, and they all show women with
huge, fat hips and buttocks. Today, it is known as the "Venus
Syndrome", the connection between Venus and the lower body
fat, today referred to as "cellulite" - the thickening and
laxity of connective tissue beneath the skin, around
gelatinous pockets of fat, which traps toxic matter and body
Venus is the principle of harmony, equilibrium, homeostasis,
and thus rules the body's hormonal secretions. The Moon and
Venus rule strongly over the affairs and health of women. It
rules over all regulatory and secretory functions, especially
the female sexual hormones. It rules the chemical composition
of the body's fluids, acidity and alkalinity, sodium-potassium
balance, and the other mineral ions. The planet is basically
benefic in action, but in hard aspect frequently points to
numerous little disorders, showing a general relaxation of the
system and body tone, but eventually debilitates the native as
the years pass. Its afflictions are generally maladies due to
indiscretions in diet and habit.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Venus has traditionally been
associated with diabetes. Hard aspects to Venus point to lack
of homeostasis, lack of tone, congestion and swelling of the
body's tissues; cyst formation; and kidney disorders. Venus
also rules over the veins and indicates such disorders as
varicose veins, hemorrhoids, vascular spiders, etc.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Homeostasis, hormonal balance,
ovaries, kidneys, venous system, tissue tone, nutritional
functions, skin and complexion.
VENUS in VIRGO
Venus in Virgo indicates individuals with much sympathy for
the sick, therefore many people with this position become
successful nurses, dietitians, and therapists. These natives
enjoy good relations with fellow workers and employees.
Individuals with Venus in Virgo may be somewhat inhibited when
it comes to establishing social or sexual relationships. Close
friendships may be few, but are handled with care and
responsibility. Afflictions to Venus indicate secret unions
and strange experiences towards the close of life. This
position can indicate irregular peristalsis and blood sugar
problems, including hypoglycemia and diabetic tendencies.
There is also tendency to allergy from dairy products.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Irregularities of the bowels,
obstruction, intestinal mucus, diarrhea, and parasites from
wrong diet, sluggish peristalsis and constipation; liver
problems; intestinal parasites, tapeworm; hiatal hernia.
ASTRINGENTS/TONICS: Endive, pecan.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Feet, stomach, heart, belly.
Mars is known as the "lesser unfortunate", and Saturn is known
as the "greater unfortunate", as both are considered malefic
planets. The action of Mars is acute and violent, heating,
inflammatory, and febrile. Mars rules one's physical energy,
expressed as either self-assertiveness and healthy efforts, or
aggression and hostility. Mars actions include arousal,
erection, and penetration. Mars diseases are traumatic,
contagious, burning, blistering, leaving scars, pock marks,
and disfigurements. They are diseases that arise from anger,
frustration, madness, and wickedness. When Mars is well
aspected, it shows a strong constitution, good physical
endurance and independence. Natives under strong benefic
influence are practical, handle instruments well, and make
good surgeons and dentists. When unfavorably aspected, the
native is prone to fits of fury, argumentative, and liable to
Esoterically speaking, Mars, like the Moon, is one of the
planets that loses its influence as spiritual faculties are
developed. It is a planetary influence where its principal
expression - anger - always brings reciprocal negative
reactions of the worst kind. To better understand its
influence in the native, the house location indicates the
external conditions in the life of the native that needs
spiritual development. The zodiac sign location of Mars
indicates the body's susceptible areas where the negative
emotion of anger will raise havoc and disorder.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Inflammations and scars on the body
parts ruled by the zodiac sign or house of its placement;
alterations in blood chemistry, especially glucose, calcium,
magnesium; geloses and myogeloses in muscular tissues; liver
torpidity and congestion; genitourinary infections;
hypertension and hypertensive headaches, migraine.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Body heat, inflammatory response,
adrenal function, formation of hemoglobin and blood clots,
digestion of food, muscular activity, glycogen storage and
liver function, genitals.
MARS in TAURUS
Those who have Mars in Taurus are usually very practical and
deliberate, and have good foresight and organizing and
executive abilities. These people are not easily thwarted by
obstacles and push forward until their goal is reached. This
location indicates good earning capacity, and if Mars is
favorably aspected it indicates money by legacy. These people
are liberal, and very often spend lavishly on clothing and
fine foods. If Mars is afflicted the native is exceedingly
stubborn, the speech is blunt, and when such persons become
angry they are apt to be bullheaded. If legacy comes to them
there is danger of losing it through legal trouble. There is
also danger of unfavorable unions, powerful opponents, scandal
and monetary difficulties which are usually the outcome of
living too lavishly or by domestic troubles. They are likely
to possess great physical strength and stamina, or at least
have the capacity to develop these qualities. This position
indicates tendency to sore throats and the native should drink
adequate amounts of water (6-8 glasses daily) and avoid eating
hot and spicy foods to offset infection and inflammations.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Troubles of the throat, pharyngitis,
angina, laryngitis, enlarged adenoids and tonsils; asthma,
bronchitis and tendency to catch pneumonia, hay fever; bowel
disease from gluttony and spicy foods; ovarian disease;
fractures; arrhythmia; kidney stones; foul, swollen tongue,
ANTIPHLOGISTICS/COOLANTS: Avocado, banana, almonds, celery,
VULNERARIES: Comfrey, arnica.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by burns (especially if afflicting
the Sun, Moon or Ascendant); death by strangulation; given to
treachery; obstinate in religious matters, refusal to admit
wrong or change beliefs.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Kidneys, throat.
When favorably aspected, Jupiter shows one's tendency to
benevolence and jovial disposition. These natives are
courteous, refined, law abiding, and honorable. When adversely
aspected, it denotes lawlessness, self-indulgence,
carelessness in meeting obligations, and gluttony which
results in ill-health.
Medically, Jupiter in the natal chart rules the liver, the
main organ for balance and detoxification, reception of the
intestinal portal circulation, and control of fat utilization.
Thus, Jupiter rules fat metabolism. It rules the arterial
blood, and the functions of digestive assimilation, especially
in regards to the liver. Jupiter also rules the adrenals and
the storage of glycogen, and thus has influence over the
stamina and muscular power. The placement of Jupiter points to
those herbs and dietetics that will best suit the native for
detoxification and periodic cleansing of the bowels and thus
Although Jupiter by nature is benefic, it has a malefic
influence when in hard aspect to the Sun, Moon or Ascendant;
and in the sixth house. Most of its maladies are accentuated
by indiscretions in diet leading to blood disorders, toxicity,
and fatty accumulations.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Obesity, toxicity, hypertension,
abdominal fullness, diseases from "high living", stroke,
hemorrhagic diseases, jaundice.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Liver functions, especially
detoxification and glycogen storage, production of urea and
bile; fat metabolism; blood and arterial system; growth
JUPITER in AQUARIUS
Jupiter in Aquarius, when well-aspected, indicates a humane,
optimistic, original and philosophic mind. The native is fond
of friends and company and is interested in science,
mysticism, literature and music. This is a good aspect of
general success in life, but if Jupiter is afflicted it makes
these individuals restless, nervous and erratic with a lack of
inclination for serious work which is bad for their health.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Feet, arms, shoulders, breast.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Hypertension with edema, swelling of
the ankles, poor circulation and impure blood, apoplexy,
palpitation; lumbago, flying pains and colic; disorders of the
LIVER CLEANSING: Red vegetables and fruits - beet, radish,
strawberries, peppers, etc. mixed with carrot juice to taste.
In Greek, Saturn is known as "kronos", from which our word
"chronic" is taken. Permanent disease is signified by the
placement of Saturn in the chart, and its course and attack by
the motion of other planets. Its action signifies binding,
crystallizing, cold, dry, hardening, depleting, obstructing,
retarding, and suppressing. The afflictions of Saturn are for
prolonged periods, whereas Mars afflicts more acutely, for
Saturn's placement in the chart is associated with the solid
matter of one's body, ruling all dense components and
processes. Saturn in any part of the horoscope is considered
an affliction to the zodiac sign, house, and parts of the body
so ruled. It tends to weaken and make one more liable to
disease, and the sign and parts ruled are usually considered
the most vulnerable, even to cause death through disease and
malignancy. Those parts ruled at birth by Saturn indicate
reduced nerve and energy supply, insufficient oxygenation,
accumulation of tissue acids, and thus fibrositis, myositis,
and rheumatism. The planet Saturn indicates subnormal
conditions by inhibition, retention, and suppression. The
medical astrologers at the turn of the century stated that
carcinoma is most liable to occur in that part ruled by the
sign that Saturn is in at birth. Saturn also has rulership
over the blood's clotting factors, the parathyroids, and
Saturn's afflictions come from lack of self control, spiritual
development, and materialistic tendencies. When manifested
negatively, Saturn's principle action is quite simply fear.
The hard aspects indicate opportunity to come to terms with a
specific kind of fear. The type of fear is indicated by
Saturn's aspects (conjunct, square or opposition) to the Sun,
Moon, Mars, Mercury or Venus.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Typical Saturnine problems are
chronic skin complaints, stiffness of the joints and muscles,
deformity; dental problems; deafness; depression; slowed
atrophy and functioning of the body's processes; scleroses of
the body's tissues, rheumatism from accumulated tissue wastes
in the sign or house of the nativity chart.
Subluxations of the spine are partial dislocations of the
vertebra which impinge and put pressure on the nerves passing
through them, shutting off nerve supply and causing irritation
and pain leading to disease. Along the lines of chiropractic
philosophy, health is maintained by a correctly aligned spine
that requires periodic adjustments by manipulative therapy.
Palpation and X-ray discover these deviations but your
astrological chart can identify weak areas that will be
chronically affected. Each sign of the zodiac, and malefics
placed in them, tend to afflict the vertebra, especially the
vertebra ruled by the sign in which Saturn is found at birth.
Such subluxations tend to be the major one throughout life.
For example, the sign Libra rules the kidneys and if Saturn is
here at birth, the 10th, 11th, 12th dorsals, and 1st lumbar
will be afflicted the most, and this is known before
examination. From a chiropractic or osteopathic standpoint,
the emphasis of treatment should be in the area where Saturn
was afflicting at birth as this area will show stasis,
restrictions, stiffness, and congestion.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing,
SATURN in SCORPIO
This position indicates a strong, determined will. These
individuals possess minds that are mechanical and resourceful.
They are endowed with courage and persistence which are
essential in all pioneering undertakings. Individuals with
Saturn in Scorpio encounter responsibility and restriction
involving payment of debts of one kind or another. If Saturn
should be favorably aspected to Mars, Sun or Mercury it favors
surgery, engineering or any occupation in which sharp
instruments, fire or water is involved. This position brings
legacies and favors financial benefits after marriage. It is
also a favorable placement for health and longevity. When
Saturn is adversely aspected, it causes sorrow through love
affairs, secret alliances, intrigues, and domestic
difficulties. The person is liable to ill-health caused by
worry, sluggish bowels, constipation, hemorrhoids, and
ailments due to auto toxemia. Scorpio with the rigidity of
Saturn indicates restrictions and limitations that are imposed
by too much control in some area of their lives, or
manipulation in order to gain control as indicated by house
position. Colon stasis, constipation and sluggish peristalsis
are characteristic. The native should drink adequate
quantities of water (6-8 glasses daily).
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Knees, legs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Retention of urine, kidney stones,
cystitis;gout; abnormal breathing, lymph stasis; suppressed
menstruation, uterine complaints, ovarian disease; faulty
elimination, constipation, appendicitis, bad breath,
hemorrhoids, auto toxemia, sluggish peristalsis; nervous
disorders; bronchitis; anosmia, parosmia; hypothyroidism,
COUNTERACTING STIMULANTS: Asparagus, allspice, garlic, chives.
RULING VERTEBRA: 9th, 12th dorsals; 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th
lumbars, sacrum, and taken as a whole, Scorpio rules the os
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by serpent bites; death by plague;
death by drowning (afflicting the Moon), or at sea (afflicting
the Sun or Ascendant); rape; death by childbirth.
Uranus rules your electrical life breath, and thus your
avenues for personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates
potential for originality of thought and expression, yet its
energy is not accessible to much of humanity at this time. In
society it rules the apparently radical ideas and people that
are years ahead of their time. They lead to revolutionary
events that upset established structures. The Aquarian age of
which we are now entering is ruled by Uranus. Its cycle began
with the discovery of electricity which it rules and is now
interconnecting everyone on the planet with a synthetic
Karmically, all aspects of the personal planets - Mercury,
Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, or the Ascendant -
indicate areas of life where there is a strong urge for
freedom of expression without restraint and the need for
constant stimulation and excitement. This planet also
represents the capacity to be high-strung, excitable, and
temperamental. The motives of Uranus thus represent the
purpose of radically repolarizing an individual's past lives,
and open one up to new experience either through stimulating,
shocking, and even traumatic crises to find new ways of
living. People who are ruled by Uranus are lovers of freedom,
rebellious at least restraint, intuitive and inventive. They
are aviators, high level mechanics, or deal directly with
electricity. It also tends towards erratic behavior and can
make people irritable and brusque in manner.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing,
ossicification. Uranus rules all the rhythmic processes of the
body. It rules the movement of the whole digestive tract from
mouth to anus. Thus, the common symptom of its afflictions are
spasmodic manifestations and disrupted rhythms - muscles
spasms, shock, cramp, strictures, ruptures, paroxysms, and
URANUS in PISCES
Uranus in Pisces, when well aspected, indicates a love of
mystery, the occult, or metaphysics and capabilities for
development along these lines. The talents of these
individuals are unusual and contribute to far-sighted changes.
If Uranus is afflicted however, it can lead to mediumship,
obsession, and even insanity. This position makes the mind
inconstant and erratic, and the native will be subject to
unexpected misfortune, scandal, or suicide. All through life,
even when fortune appears, these people are haunted by a vague
fear of impending disappointment, doom or disaster.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Catarrhal disease; bunions, corns;
cramps in the feet and toes, bunions; insomnia; functional
ANTISPASMODICS: Sage, anise.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by drowning (afflicting the Moon),
suicide; sudden illness in the feet and lymphatic system.
Neptune takes approximately 164 years to orbit the zodiac,
taking about 13 years in each sign. Its position is a kind of
cultural expression manifesting itself with imaginative and
creative faculties of a generation. Its location points to a
common spiritual destiny shown by the sign that it occupies.
As one gets older, new generations may then seem strange in
style, cultural or artistic expression, something not innately
understood by the native.
People with an afflicted Neptune should always be on guard for
deception, trickery, and fraud. Since each one's life is the
outcome of former living, afflictions of Neptune offer ready
channels where enemies from past lives or evil spirits can
gain entry into our sacred temple. Forewarned is forearmed and
confrontations can be stepping stones upward in life, or
misery leading to drug abuse and apathy. Afflictions to
Neptune may also indicate a previous life of extreme
asceticism where the physical body was ignored or neglected
leading to a leaky aura in this life. The corroborating
symptoms are tiredness and need for a lot of sleep. There is
also susceptibility to tuberculosis as Neptune is the ruler of
this disease. Sunlight counteracts the tubercular diathesis
and helps to harden and anneal an etheric body with a leaky
aura. Likewise, a favorably aspected Neptune may let one drone
away one's time, neglecting valuable opportunities offered for
soul growth by following the deceptive lines of least
resistance. Neptune rules illusion and abstract thinking, as
well as those areas of life where conditions are not always
what they seem.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Neptune's placement in the natal
chart points to conditions which are difficult to diagnose, or
are wrongly diagnosed. It has rulership over the aura and
etheric body. Its afflictions denote laxity and weakness of
the vital force, and subnormal conditions, as lack of
development, undersized body or organs. Its placement in the
chart and hard aspects has a strong rule over wasting of
tissues leading to decay and disintegration. Its pathological
manifestations are lethargy, drug abuse, intoxication, and
general lack of tone throughout the body.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Pineal gland, appendix, right-brain
NEPTUNE in LEO
Neptune in Leo, when well aspected, indicates a generous,
sympathetic and warm-hearted individuals. These natives are
fond of pleasure and artistic pursuits. They have considerable
ability and success in educational pursuits because of an
intimate understanding of the nature of others and the faculty
of imparting to them whatever knowledge they possess
themselves. They are very conscientious in their dealings with
others and successful in affairs of the heart. When Neptune is
afflicted in Leo it makes the nature super-sensual and
therefore liable to disappointments in love. These people are
governed by impulse rather than by reason. They lack the
stamina to face issues, and can be cowardly, fickle and not to
be depended upon.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Spinal disorders, use of opiates with
suspension of the heart's action; weak heart (atonic and very
susceptible to cold weather, helped by vitamin E),
arteriosclerosis, aneurysm; susceptibility to influenza.
HERBAL STIMULANTS: Cinnamon, nutmeg, orange, tangerine.
Just as your Sun sign represents your true identity in this
life, Pluto's house represents an old pattern of identity from
the past. It is a past pattern of life that is carried over
into this life. We can say that Pluto's house is that area of
life where complete regeneration is needed. Compulsive
behavior and even ruthlessness needs to be transformed into
willful intentions yielding great powers of perception and
insight into the subtle forces of life. Plutonian people can
make great healers simply by touch or vision.
The aspects of Pluto to other planets gives an indication as
to how that transformation can bring new understanding and
regeneration. Whether the aspect is "hard" as in square or
opposition, or "easy" as in a trine or sextile, determines
whether one has an innate knowing, or will meet some hard
karmic destiny. There is an enormous potential for power by
discovering those fields of experience in the house of Pluto.
It heals when it is tapped.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Medically, Pluto's energy is
concerned with eliminative processes, both physical and
spiritual. The energy represented by Pluto is life-giving and
cleansing. Pluto's transits are said to destroy the old forms
in order to bring in the new. It's pathological manifestations
are abscesses, malignancies, ulcers, and poisonous bites.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Reproduction, defecation, expulsion of
PLUTO in CANCER (1914-1939)
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change,
upheavals, and drastic transformations. Pluto's period in
Cancer was 1912-1939. Cancer is a sign of emotional
expression, domestic concerns, and food production. There was
a revolution in agricultural techniques with the introduction
of chemical fertilizers and discovery of pesticides. On April
22, 1915 the Germans fired three rockets of chlorine gas on
French troops in Ypres which resulted in unprecedented horror
and mass slaughter. In the words of the infamous Professor
Huber, they had discovered a "higher form of killing". During
this time was the formation of the infamous IG Farben Chemical
Cartel which fueled Hitler's war machine and later became the
companies that control many of today's pharmaceuticals. Cancer
rules women and the family. During the 20ís the attitudes and
roles of women were transformed. They demanded greater freedom
in society and release from the drudgery of domestic chores.
As a result of the increasing number of women seeking
employment outside of the home, family life also changed
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Cancer.
The first house and the sign that rules this house, is also
known as the Ascendant or rising sign, or that zodiac point
which is actually crossing against the horizon at the exact
time of your birth. It denotes your outer personality and
physical constitution. The Ascendant is about interaction with
you and the environment, the meeting point between the
individual and the external world. Its sign denotes the animal
heat and corporeal vigor. The planet ruling the sign of the
Ascendant is considered one of the principal ruling planets of
the horoscope. First house placement is so important, that the
degree of the sign rising is treated as though it were a
planet with regards to aspects with other planets and with
regards to pinpointing details of the health chart of the
native - his/her mind, body, strength, diseases subject to,
etc. The sign on the Ascendant denotes the body's conductance
or resistance to the inflow of prana or vital energy. It is
conducted best by fire and air signs; and resistant if the
rising sign is of water or earth elements.
In every sense the first house should be called the native's
personality as it shows what is on the surface, how you appear
to others, how the world sees you or what we call the native.
Thus the horoscope is also called the nativity chart.
Outsiders are attracted to you by this sign. It accounts for
those glaring contradictions we find in human behavior. You
may feel yourself as sexy, yet it is not picked up by others
or appears that way due to your rising sign's influence, and
vice versa. It explains why some people are forever getting in
trouble or attracting trouble through no intentions of their
own. When the first house contains no planets, it means
individuality is not a matter of personal concern, these
individuals accept themselves "as is". If the first house
contains one or more planets, then the native is consciously
concerned about some aspect of his identity. There is some
dynamic or hang-up that needs resolution, karmically speaking.
Planets in the first house indicate the native is aggressive
and strives to be "first" denoted by the planet or planets
posited. These individuals usually have a difficult time
resting and relaxing their bodies which they need to learn in
order to insure good health. First house people tend to be
individualists with a forceful drive and ambition in life.
The first house shows the organic elements, the physiological
factors, and the physical characteristics which determine the
strength and resistance of the body. The Ascendant and the
first house represents the "original impulse of individual
being", or the self as a particular vibration and rhythm, and
the unique soul destiny of the individual. It indicates
essentially the type of experience through which he/she will
best discover who they are. The zodiacal sign on the Ascendant
normally tells us the "dharma" of the individual, the central
potentiality which the conscious person is seeking to
actualize. If there are planets in the first house they
indicate the kinds of functions which will be most valuable in
the process of discovery of one's authentic being. Thus, the
planets and the first house ruling planet show the way to
impel performance of specific acts.
One can often discover what zodiacal sign was rising at birth
(if time of birth is not known) by studying a person's facial
features and expression. The head symbolizes the essential
character of the individual. The head is ruled by the first
house. The first house rules the body form, constitution, and
temperament. The physical appearance, strength and vitality,
weight, height, color of hair and eyes, etc. are largely
determined by the rising sign, degree rising on the cusp, etc.
The position of the first house ruler and planets rising
modifies these features. The zodiacal sign ascending denotes
the part of the body more liable to affliction from external
causes such as trauma and infection.
The benefics, Jupiter and Venus, in the first house at birth
indicate a good constitution, whereas the malefics, Saturn and
Mars, denote scars, birthmarks, moles and defects of the head.
This house at birth, and by direction, signifies all diseases
of the head, face, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. This house is
closely associated with the feelings, sensations, emotions,
manners, passions, and dispositions of the native. In this
regards, it explains why the Sun sign does not reflect all the
features of the native, and why the Ascendant and the Moon
sign are of equal importance in the analysis of the health
Regarding the compatibility of healer and patient, the rising
sign in each natal map should be in harmony, belonging to the
same triplicity, that is in trine or sextile to each other. If
the patient has Aries on the Ascendant at birth, his/her
healer should also have a fire sign on the Ascendant, as in
Leo or Sagittarius. If the healer employed has Cancer, Libra,
or Capricorn on the Ascendant it would tend to be adverse, if
not in results, certainly in relationship and cooperation. The
sextile and trines naturally tend to inspire confidence and
faith between healer and patient.
AFFLICTIONS: Head and face, endocrine disturbances which
affect the mental states, brain tumors, high fevers,
HEALING COLOR: Indigo
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, pink, red, champagne
This sign indicates a strong and spiritual nature when well
aspected on the horizon. These individuals are often
humanitarians. They possess generous natures and are sometimes
eccentric. They have warm and sensitive personalities and
attract many friends. The native has a square jaw, fine and
wide eyebrows that are arched. This sign makes one
unconventional with lovely yet slightly irregular features.
Nervous conditions, blood disorders, and stiffness or
inflexibility of the bones and joints are some common physical
complaints they are apt to experience. These individuals have
a tendency toward corpulence in middle age.
The rising sign is divided into thirds, or 3 "decanates",
which have a powerful influence over the appearance and form
of your body. The sign is simply divided into three 10 aspects
as follows: 0-10 first decanate, 11-20 second decanate, and
21-30 third decanate. Each decanate is ruled over by a planet.
The first ten degrees is ruled over by the indigenous sign
ruler, the second takes on the qualities of the next elemental
ruler, and the third the successive element sign ruler. Thus,
the first decanate of Aries is ruled by its Mars, the second
takes on the qualities of Leo, and the third would combine the
qualities of Aires and Sagittarius, and so on throughout the
zodiac. Simply locate the first house on your natal chart and
note which degree is rising in the sign listed. This gives you
your decanate. If in the last few degrees of the sign, e.g. 26
or more, you would also take on characteristics of the first
decanate of the following sign.
FIRST DECANATE APPEARANCE: Some Aquarians are tall, slight and
good looking, with a well-shaped straight or aquiline nose and
a rather receding chin. If Pisces contains a planet, this
decanate can take on a short nose with irregular face,
pleasing but shorter and even a stout figure.
KEYWORDS: Independent, profound, morbid, fidelity.
SECOND DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Gemini decanate is ruled by
Mercury, giving a similar figure to the third decanate of
Gemini - tall, slight, straight and expressive.
KEYWORDS: Intellectual, electrical, scientific, penetrative.
THIRD DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Libra decanate ruled by Venus
indicates narrow hips and an upward, expressive tilt to the
eyes and eyebrows.
KEYWORDS: Genial, artistic, altruistic.
EMPOWERMENT COLORS, GEMS, FRAGRANCES: Sky blue, orange;
aquamarine, garnet, sapphire, opal; hops, lavender, patchouli,
MODERATING COLOR: Red.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Anemia, astigmatism, poor
circulation, tendency to catch colds, obesity, edema, impure
blood, heart disease, kidney disease, atherosclerosis, nervous
and spasmodic disorders. The native should be certain to drink
adequate quantities of water (6-8 glasses daily) to offset
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Lameness, crippled (afflicted by Mars or
JUPITER in 1st HOUSE
Jupiter in the first house, when well-aspected, is a good sign
of health, opulence, and general fortune in life. It indicates
a good-natured, kindly disposition, cordiality, honor and
righteousness of the native. These people love pleasure,
particularly out-of-doors, and are fond of traveling. They
have considerable executive ability and are therefore sought
for positions of importance and responsibility. Jupiter
afflicted on the Ascendant indicates a tendency to
self-indulgence, according to the sign wherein it is placed.
If in Cancer, the native may become a glutton with the
inevitable result that in the course of years he/she becomes
excessively stout, the liver becomes torpid and enlarged and
as a consequence is subject to sicknesses of a serious nature
like hypertension and even cancer. In Sagittarius the native
may be a gambler who would stake his/her assets on the toss of
a coin. In Pisces he/she becomes an incurable chocoholic or
alcoholic, in Scorpio a sensualist of the worst nature and so
on with the other signs. Whenever Jupiter is afflicted on the
Ascendant the health suffers through corruption of the senses
- alimentary, sexually, obsessively or otherwise.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Poor circulation, hair loss; obesity;
JUPITER square SATURN
Jupiter square Saturn indicates individuals with diffident,
vacillating minds unable to form decisions. These natives have
a tendency to be distrustful of others which at times may
interfere with important opportunities. There are difficulties
in business or in one's profession from misfortune leading to
depression and melancholy, if not dishonesty. Religious and
philosophical values tend to be rigid, orthodox, or too
materialistic. They appear to others to be slaves of their own
dull routines and work, if not stuck in life with no long term
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Arteriosclerosis; melancholia,
depression; lowered vitality and resistance; seborrhea, acne,
dermatitis, eczema; liver disorders, poor absorption of fats,
gall stones; pre-diabetic condition due to prolonged
hypoglycemia from chromium and zinc deficiencies; troubles of
dentition; fragile capillaries due to vitamin C deficiency;
asthma, poor respiration, oxygen deficiency, chronic disease
from poor circulation; cancer.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: The native should avoid taking synthetic
vitamins as they will be poorly assimilated, better to opt for
all-natural. Deficiencies of vitamin B-6, biotin, inositol,
choline, PABA, vitamin C, zinc, chromium and manganese.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Spinach, broccoli, bananas, citrus fruits,
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by assassination (of noble men);
wretched, miserable disposition.
JUPITER opposite NEPTUNE
Jupiter opposite Neptune indicates lack of control of the
emotions. The native may be sensitive to psychic influences
between the seen and the unseen worlds that may cause
hysterical conditions. From a material standpoint it indicates
danger of fraud through speculation or large companies,
therefore dealing with predatory interests should be avoided.
These natives may also be absent minded and make promises they
cannot fulfill, making them unreliable and impractical.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Cancer; anemia; leukemia, leukopenia,
polycythemia; sensitivity to drugs, alcohol, and allergies to
antibiotics in meats, petroleum fumes and gases; thymus gland
insufficiency, especially from vaccination; nephritis; craving
for sugar; hysteria; spinal disorders. The native has a
general proneness to infections.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: Deficiency of zinc, manganese and
chromium; inositol, choline pangamic acid; the native should
avoid synthetic vitamins and opt for natural ingredients.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Whole grains, beans, peanuts.
The second house rules material matters, property, wealth or
poverty, etc. It denotes the level of acquisitiveness as a
driving force, or the level of greed for power and wealth.
This tends to affect the native's homeostasis since
possessions are related to the value placed on food and
nutrition, habits in acquiring food and other immediate
necessities of life. The pituitary gland, which controls all
endocrine glands, falls under this house.
The belief or realization for those so gifted, adds another
dimension to understand second house questions. One's
tendencies, faculties, and karma produced from past lives and
carried over into the present rests with the concept of
management, that is, intelligent use of one's inheritance,
possessions, artistic talents, or even inventions. The second
house can show the mere fact of ownership in today's
essentially "unspiritual society", or one who lives according
to spiritual values and surrenders to mankind assets to
promote human evolution. It shows then if a person can advance
beyond the traditional use of possessions, or is acting merely
as an agent for the "ghosts of karma" (Geg in Tibetan), with a
life filled by ancestors, driven by socio-religious hatreds
When no planets occupy this house, it indicates the native
does not see money as a major issue in life. With planets in
this house, the affairs of other houses which those planets
rule are brought to bear influence on the matter of obtaining
money. For example, if Saturn is in your second house, tenth
house matters, such as your profession, is where the money
will easily flow from.
People with planets in the second house have overwhelming
desires to prove their self-worth, establish themselves in
society by big factors as indicated by the house rulers
outlined above. For example, if the Moon is in the second
house, fourth house matters like the home are important and
the native will desire a big home or big family. After having
established their nest eggs, (with the personal planets Venus,
Moon, Mars, Jupiter placed in this house) gluttony is not
uncommon. The native will also learn the karmic problem of
this house - happiness is the one thing that cannot be bought.
AFFLICTIONS: Problems with homeostasis - blood and electrolyte
changes, intake of nutrients - diabetes, obesity, hypoglycemia;
disorders arising from vaccination.
HEALING COLOR: Yellow
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Green, lemon, citrine, brown
PISCES on 2nd HOUSE
The second house shows how the native earns money from his/her
own efforts and from what resources. These individuals are
prone to have difficulties with their finances. They may be
disorganized and lax when it comes to handling their affairs
and if they do not pay close attention, there is the potential
that all they have worked for will dwindle away.
URANUS in 2nd HOUSE
Uranus in the second house, which governs finance, indicates
an unsettled state of financial affairs, impulsive spending
habits, and money earned from unusual or unorthodox
occupations. Even these individuals may have good aspects
concerning financial matters, it may be found that they are
unable to protect themselves against these sudden and
unforeseen losses or gains. Therefore it is difficult to give
financial advice to such people, for even if they invested
prudently and cautiously, there will be sudden, unexpected, if
not catastrophic losses in business ventures. The sign in
which Uranus is placed will show the nature of the losses, as
in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, loss by fire or in electrical
investments; in Virgo or Capricorn, by investments in lands,
mines and real estate; and so on with the rest of the signs.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Spasms in the neck and shoulders.
Astrology speaks of the third house as that of brothers and
sisters, and close relatives. It actually means the earliest
newborn environment and of one's grown relationship to it. The
relationship of the child to his/her environment is basic and
substantial in the formation of his/her character, and of
responses to life. The third house refers to the early
environment and to persons who acted within it - close
relatives, guardians, siblings, etc. It also shows in the
child "coming to terms" which is at first entirely unconscious
and instinctual, later becoming the foundation for human
intelligence, and consciousness.
No planets in the third house means response in a natural
fashion. One or more planets in the third house indicates a
self-conscious need to express thoughts. It may sometimes
indicate speech difficulties. The native is often asked too
often to help other people, brothers and sisters. The disease
of "other people" can lead to great frustrations and nervous
stress. These individuals need to learn to say no, take
regular breaks in peace and quiet, take short naps after
lunch, etc. for the health to improve.
Malefic planets in this house tend toward mental instability
and chaos unless well aspected. It shows traumatic experiences
such as child abuse, fights with siblings, rebellion, etc.
What differentiates this house from its opposite, the ninth
house, is that of experiences involving direct personal
contact with the close environment of the individual,
resulting in habits and proclivities. It indicates physical
actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate
environment. Benefics in this house, when well aspected,
indicate a well balanced mind. It rules the fingers, hands,
chest, lungs, the lower mind and wakefulness.
AFFLICTIONS: Disturbed breathing rhythms, reduced vitality,
lack of oxygenation, nervous tension, mental instability.
HEALING COLOR: Orange
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Yellow, indigo, white with red
TAURUS on 3rd HOUSE
The third house deals with the native's immediate speaking,
writing, and communications audience. Taurus ruling the third
house indicates individuals who are apt to be very sociable
within their immediate surroundings but communicate by
convenience, not by innovation. Being slow and deliberate in
thought, once they make a decision they become stubborn an
rarely change their minds. Their thinking is often
concentrated on money making or on artistic endeavors. These
individuals usually have friendly and sincere relationships
with their brothers and sisters as well as their neighbors.
The native may also actively participate in community
projects. Afflictions in the third house suggest these
individuals may become involved in arguments with siblings or
MARS in 3rd HOUSE
Mars in the third house, when well-aspected, makes the mind
keen, bright and alert, fond of argument, quick at response,
ingenious, inventive and resourceful, with plenty of
initiative and constructive abilities. When Mars is afflicted
it indicates liability to accidents on short journeys, a
quarrelsome nature that may to get into trouble with brothers,
sisters and neighbors, and a short attention span. These
individuals tend to be hot tempered, lack mechanical ability,
and experience accidents, especially with cars and while
traveling within a short distance of home. These people can be
very critical towards everyone they meet and are generally
feared and avoided when possible.
AGGRESSION LESSON: In no area of life is the emotion of anger
of more danger to one's health. The native should learn how to
breath properly and be more careful of their words.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Shallow breathing, anger and
frustrations that override logical actions; unbalanced
mentality, hasty, quick irrational thinking; stiff neck and
Insomnia: Not trusting the process of life. The resolution
here is to trust tomorrow and the flow of life will take care
MARS square JUPITER
Mars square Jupiter indicates a most self-destructive aspect
because these individuals possess rather violent tendencies
and are inclined to fight to gain social approval. They can
seek sanction for self-aggrandizement and gratification of the
passions. It is also the signature of the gambler and if one
of the planets is in a water sign, especially in Pisces, these
natives may be tricky and dishonest characters who act through
impulse. They act self-assertively often on crusades to favor
their material well-being. They are prone to boast their own
self-worth, and exaggerate their own importance. Sometimes
they use religion as a vehicle for hypocrisy. With respect to
health these people suffer principally from blood and liver
complaints. Their circulation may be poor and there is danger
of apoplexy. With their constant desire for stimulation and
activity, the native needs to find reasons to relax and
meditate on greater issues of life.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Stroke, apoplexy, arteriosclerosis,
heart problems, high blood pressure; hair loss; lymph stasis
and obesity; eruptions, lipomas. These natives suffer from
impure blood, poor circulation, diseases from carelessness,
and are thus liable to cancer.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: Deficiencies of vitamin B-6, B-12, folic
acid, biotin, selenium. The native tends to overuse salt and
thus develops heart problems and potassium deficiency.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Spinach, broccoli, bananas, green leafy
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by wounds, gunshot, violence and war;
a braggart, a thief; a soldier on a crusade or mission.
MARS opposite SATURN
Mars opposite Saturn indicates natives with selfish, violent,
harsh and cruel natures. These individuals can be quick
tempered and vindictive, and are prone to dishonest and
unscrupulous behavior. There is liability to public disgrace
and imprisonment, or to accident and violent death. The native
may have a fear of self-assertion, sex, or taking risks in
these life areas, which the person may try to compensate for
by exaggerated behaviors of sexual activity or ambition. The
assertive or instinctual energies need to be disciplined by
dedication to a highly specialized form of work or occupation.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Blood dyscrasias, blood clots,
hemorrhaging, bleeding gums, anemia; arthritis; loss of hair,
premature graying; adrenal fatigue, underweight, lack of
proper growth. These natives are prone to diseases due to
anger, gall stones, constipation, fractures, and cancer.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: Deficiencies of folic acid, essential
fatty acids and assimilation of calcium, poor absorption of
iron, B-12 and folic acid; increased needs for bioflavonoids
and vitamin C.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Green leafy vegetables, oranges, broccoli.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Starvation; given to treachery; nasty
temperament, rude; rebellious or fights with authority.
MARS sextile PLUTO
This aspect indicates that these individuals are intense and
sometimes manipulative. They are good with financial matters
and may acquire wealth through inheritance. They prefer to be
in positions of authority as they like to be in control.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Spiritual contact with high sources.
The fourth house is said to have two basic meanings - the soil
or secure foundation in which man is rooted; and the "heart"
or fundamental rhythm of the individual self. It is indeed the
Nadir of the chart, the midnight point of consciousness, where
"God-experience" can be had. The vertical line of the birth
chart - Zenith to Nadir - points upwards to the sky (Zenith)
and downward through the spinal column at the center of the
globe. Unity comes by centering one's "Hara" or vital energy
with that of the Earth.
Its sign and planets refer to the kind of feeling which
spontaneously mobilizes and directs the energies of the
organism, often called "gut feeling". The Ascendant tells who
we are, while the Nadir shows what we are, at least
potentially, where we stand. It is the power implied in "being
a person", yet in today's global economy it is basically
conditioned, if not entirely determined, by socio-cultural
patterns and media manipulation, rather than by ancestral
family values. Thus it indicates the beginning as well as the
end of various cycles in the native's life, including old age,
the end of life and death, the various conditions which affect
the close of life, its diseases, worries, wealth or poverty,
etc. The nature of the end of life will be told by the planets
in this house, and the sign on which the cusp begins the part
or organ where the complaint will lie.
If there are no planets in the fourth house, the native
accepts his background and family and makes the best of it. If
there are one or more planets in the fourth house, then
conscious attention is directed towards his background. He/she
has reasons to question, if not doubt family matters. Some may
have unfortunate liabilities to overcome before they make
headway in life. Malefics in this house can indicate early
childhood traumas which are best recalled and cleared by past
life regression. Neurosis can result from repressed anger.
Parental attitudes and conditioning have led to unhealthy if
not neurotic habits. All these matters of childhood trauma and
abuse are judged by the fourth house.
At the biological level, the fourth house symbolizes the
acquirement of nutrients to satisfy basic physiologic needs to
meet daily routines and obstacles. It is the energy needed for
intercellular exchanges and for adjusting the body to changes
in temperature and the demands of the physical environment. It
rules over the body water, interstitial fluid, and lymphatic
environment. In a mentally and emotionally developed person,
one's personal power (Hara) is available for self-expression
and social contact. In an undeveloped or immature being,
confusion sets in with mixed impulses carried over from
previous lives and those values family and society has forced
upon the individual. This results in oral fixations, hormonal
imbalances, lymphatic stasis and obesity. It is a being out of
rhythm, breathless, confused and never satiated.
This house rules the breasts, lungs, stomach; inheritance; the
birthplace and home place; the mother in the male chart and
father in the female chart. Benefics in this house at birth
indicate that the native should live in his native homeland,
if possible, for insured good health and fortune, leading to a
happy end of life. Malefics here point to a short life of the
mother or father, according to the sex of the horoscope;
disease, distress, and worry in old age.
AFFLICTIONS: Oral fixations, overeating, nutritional
disturbances, obesity, anorexia; diseases of the stomach,
breasts, and lungs.
HEALING COLOR: Violet
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Silver, green, russet, brown
GEMINI on 4th HOUSE
The fourth house is the area of private concerns, emotional
security and how we inwardly feel about ourselves. If there
are no planets in this house, there are generally no problems
in the way these individuals accept themselves. The cusp on
this house shows the general tempo of the subjective self.
Gemini ruling the fourth indicates natives who regards
themselves as being well informed on all subjects which have
caught their interest. These individuals are adaptable,
versatile, and open minded. The home is the center of activity
and they may prefer to work or pursue many hobbies at home.
They are apt to have extensive libraries or collections of
magazines and other factual material.
At its highest potential, the fifth house shows the
exteriorized power and a projected vision originating from a
realm that is "super personal". The person thus becomes an
agent for some great collective consciousness or planetary,
evolutionary purpose. He/she becomes a lens through which
light is condensed and brought into focus, at which point
power can operate and work can be performed. This creative
process, work, and its products are conditioned by the nature
and temperament of the person. The person acts strictly as an
individual. To the extreme, he/she expects results that will
bring fame, prestige, and ego-satisfaction.
The fifth house is the area of experiences which are
essentially the outcome of emotions, as distinguished from gut
feelings of the fourth house. Feelings are spontaneous
reactions, whereas emotions seek an exteriorization, or
"moving out" with synchronous organic changes and muscular
movements. The fifth house is associated with gambling in any
form, for money, business ventures, romance, etc. whenever one
follows hunches, inner frustrations, or imagination.
Traditionally, the fifth house is considered to the be the
section of the birth chart (radix) referring to love affairs,
versus a seventh house marriage. Fruitful signs and planets
here denote many children, barrens signs and planets here tend
to deny children. This house rules the back, spine, liver,
stomach, appetites, loves affairs and sexual appetites. This
house is said by some to rule the soul.
Each house of the radix refers to power and unfoldment, as
well as some great test of the developing individual. The
zodiac sign on the cusp of this house and planets within
should give the student of astrology clues as to the best way
in which he or she can solve problems creatively. The Chinese
character for danger, also means opportunity, depending solely
on one's perspective and ability to be creative. The test of
the fifth house is that of isolation, or emergence as a unique
and valuable human being. The test of the second house is that
of ownership and possessions. In the third house it is thought
and how to handle ideas to approach challenges of one's
environment. The fourth house test is that of stability. The
fifth is creative self-expression.
No planets in this house means the native has little
attraction to fifth house matters. He/she can take gambling or
leave it. One or more planets in this house shows the native
has a natural interest in art, pleasure, children, romance, or
gambling. These natives may feel a great need for love. Their
ailments can come from chaotic affairs leading to frustrated
and fragmented lives. The root cause is insecurity. Naturally,
the houses ruled by the planets in the fifth house contribute
and inspire all fifth house creativity.

GEMINI on 5th HOUSE
The fifth house is where the ego extends into so-called
Gemini ruling the fifth house indicates individuals whose
pleasure pursuits are intellectual or mental. However, no one
area of pleasure will occupy the native's thinking for too
long. Romances are apt to be precarious or fickle and these
individuals may be in more than one relationship at one time.
They can be critical of their loved ones. They enjoy trading
stocks or other commodities.
PLUTO in 5th HOUSE
Pluto in fifth house indicates there is a strong compulsion to
"be somebody", to express one's individuality in a strong way.
These individuals may be creative and their works of art may
be way ahead of their time. This is also the house of romance
and encounters are apt to be intense. These individuals may
have the tendency to dominate relationships or prefer to be
dominated. Parents may dominate their children. Sexual
excesses can lead to self-degradation resulting in health
KARMIC LESSON: Learn to understand and exercise proper control
with respect to children, creative talent, and the pursuit of
pleasure. The key to this lesson is for one to learn to be
content and use energy for special creativity. Profound works
of art can take on spiritual regeneration.
The sixth house implies a crisis of perception, the period of
personal readjustment, the time in one's life when one is
forced to realize what he/she has done and whether success has
come to rest or to haunt. Once a work is completed, the
composer is often painfully aware of how it could have been
produced better. A person's inner worth is often revealed when
faced with experiences and periods of inadequacy, frustration,
or defeat. These crises take their toll upon the body, require
guts and fortitude, and great reserves of vitality. This house
represents fundamentally, everything that deals with personal
crises, the way to best meet them, and the direction of
personal growth and transformation. The sixth house is
somewhat karmic in nature by its perception or reason for
duties, debts, and obligations.
The sixth house is known as the "house of health" and the sign
on the cusp of this house indicates which body parts and
organs prone to disease and affliction. Illness may be the
direct result of some defeat of the vital energies unable to
cope with a challenge to grow stronger, or an attempt by the
soul to show a need for a revision in attitude. The sixth
house shows a response of the individual to a social
situation. Also, as a patient, one should not consult with a
doctor whose natal Saturn is in the sixth house of the native,
as one will find incompatibility or may even be poisoned by
Natives with planets in this house may have a lack of
self-esteem, be plagued by guilt, or seek the approval of
others. All these negative emotions affect the health with
nerve related ailments, blood sugar problems, and intestinal
Benefic planets ruling this house or planets in this house
show better health, while malefics afflict the mind and body.
The sixth house in a broad sense governs disease, especially
if there are planets in it at birth. It particularly rules the
abdomen, belly and intestines, food affecting conditions of
health, healers and physicians. The sixth house also rules
aunts and uncles, servants, persons in employ, kindred on the
father's side, small animals and pets of the native.
AFFLICTIONS: Hereditary diseases, general ill-health;
HEALING COLOR: Aquamarine
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Black, amber, scarlet, brown, dark blue
CANCER on 6th HOUSE
The sixth house deals with careers, routines, and health. The
native's obligations to others as well as himself/herself
appear in this house. Cancer ruling the sixth house indicates
the native may be called upon to be "mother" in daily
routines. These natives make good nurses, attendants, and
counselors as they are very sensitive to people's needs. This
also indicates those with delicate or capricious health. When
emotionally upset they feel it in their stomach as
"butterflies" and as a result suffer from digestive upsets. In
this house of food the native is fond of rich "motherly" meals
(home cooked meals) - soup with breads, thick gravies with
meats, butter in everything, etc.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Disorders and weakness of the parts
ruled by this sign - breasts, epigastric region, elbow,
stomach, digestive organs, womb, upper lobe of the liver,
lower lobes of the lungs, pancreas, peristalsis, thoracic
FOOD ALLERGY TENDENCIES: Milk and dairy products, eggs, crab,
potato, cauliflower, cabbage, mango. These foods should be
checked with electroacupuncture, bioneutralizer, applied
kinesiology, or by cytotoxic testing.
The seventh house is closely related to the sign Libra, and
thus marriage and partnership, the husband in a female
nativity, and the wife in a male nativity are also related.
This house shows the test of functional cooperation and
participation between individual and society. Function
suggests purpose, both inherent and potential, in man or
woman. Purpose is only revealed as one operates within the
group or global economy. It is the field of human experience
that the person can be most basically transformed and can gain
freedom. Planets in this house reveal compelling pressures and
motives for destiny. In such cases, individuals may find
themselves driven to enter into certain types of relationships
as part of their destiny.
While the first house represents how the native appears to
others, the fourth house shows how the natives sees himself or
herself, the seventh house represents how others appear to the
native. It represents those whose lives touch the native and
how they respond. If the house is unoccupied by planets,
he/she is comparatively free of the influence of others in
most of his/her affairs. These individuals do pretty much as
they please, but it also means others do not generally help
them either. The affairs of this house are always related to
the area of another house where the ruler of the sign on the
seventh cusp lies. If there are one or more planets in this
house, the native is consciously dependent on others in some
respect and other people tend to control his/her affairs.
Natives with planets in this house may find it difficult to
"stand on their own two feet". They feel accomplishments need
to come through other people or their partners or spouses. The
Sun located here is indicative of good health, while Saturn
signifies a potential for a short life. Mars here, indicates a
bad wife and sickness.
The seventh house also denotes the type of physician or healer
required in health matters. It is important that the healer is
compatible with the native depending on the illness. One
should avoid healers who have Saturn on the Ascendant or sixth
house of the patient. The following may be found useful:

LEO on 7th HOUSE
The seventh house deals with other people in the native's
life, particularly those that attract attention as well as
direct personal relationships. Leo ruling the seventh house
indicates the native is attracted to rather dynamic,
flamboyant and entertaining people. Many individuals with Leo
on the seventh house gain success by receiving opportunities
from others. Afflictions in this house may point to those that
are more interested in money and status rather than emotional
SUN in 7th HOUSE
This position makes the mind resourceful, and if well-aspected
indicates success in marriage. It also indicates success in
legal affairs and will help the native in all litigation, or
matters in which the law may be involved. If afflicted,
opposition that the native meets may be severe, but the solar
influence will be helpful, even while it makes the opposition
powerful. Partnerships can be unsuccessful because of the
selfishness of the participants. But one who has the Sun in
the seventh house will have no reason to complain for he/she
will always attract someone with a high sense of honor when
they are in need of a partner. The Sun in the seventh house is
a particularly fortunate position in that respect, because it
will bring the person a mate who is absolutely steadfast and
true, one who may be depended upon in all the emergencies and
vicissitudes of life. As there is no earthly treasure equal to
an enduring love, this is perhaps the best of all solar
PSYCHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sun in the seventh house suggests
people-oriented individuals. It indicates lasting attachments;
good partnerships; and a person who is well liked by business
people and superiors. If the Sun is afflicted there may be
danger of domination by either the native or by his/her

the cusp. Brain disease, lumbago; blemishes.
Lumbago: Lack of financial support from the partner. The
resolution is to trust the process of life, and all that is
needed will appear.
SUN conjunct MERCURY
Sun conjunct Mercury indicates natives that are apt to be very
biased in their opinions and ideas due to close identification
of the mind and ego. This makes it difficult to view
themselves impartially. There is a better chance that the
native will not be so ego oriented if natal Mercury is in a
different sign than natal Sun.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Nervous disorders, forgetfulness,
high-strung; nerve related problems according to the sign or
house location, e.g. sciatica (Sagittarius or 9th), neuritis,

especially thiamine, and magnesium.

to have some of the finest faculties and qualities of these
two planets. It gives method, foresight and organizing
capacity. These natives display executive and diplomatic
ability with the moral stamina to carry any project to a
successful conclusion and they make no enemies in so doing.
This aspect brings success in political or judicial positions
or in positions connected with mining or agriculture. These
individuals often benefit by legacy, but recognition and
success are generally delayed until middle life.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Generally a good tenacity and vitality
SUN opposite URANUS
Sun opposite Uranus makes the native very high-strung,
nervous, of uncontrolled emotions, and hysterical with little
or no provocation. It predisposes to all nervous disorders
such as St. Vitus dance, epilepsy, Parkinsonism, and lack of
coordination. It tends to make one impulsive and unreliable,
without regard for the norms, highly impatient of any
restraint upon one's liberty. Hence, these individuals may
choose undesirable marriage partners and end up in divorce
proceedings or scandals of ill nature. Unless this aspect is
modified by other configurations these natives are among the
notorious or dangerous to society. They are liable to
accidents from lightning and electricity, and all through life
they are apt to meet disappointment.

disease, Parkinsonism; neuralgia, electrical or shooting

MERCURY in 7th HOUSE
Mercury in the seventh house and well-aspected makes the
person popular in literary and scientific circles. It is a
good position for public speakers and those in public
relations. But if Mercury is afflicted, the seventh house
position brings a great deal of hostile criticism of a public
nature and is liable to involve the person in litigation
either to defend himself against libel from others or an
account of libel committed by himself. A well-aspected Mercury
in the seventh house indicates a successful marriage to a
relative or an employee, but when Mercury is afflicted either
the person or the marriage partner is of an unhappy nature
making the married life rife with constant quarrels and
disputes on account of nonsense or even faithlessness. If
afflicted, the native must be careful before signing contracts
and entering into marriages and partnerships.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Generally of good health except if on
the cusp. Brain disease, lumbago; blemishes.
Lumbago: Lack of financial support from the partner. The
resolution is to trust the process of life, and all that is
needed will appear.
MERCURY trine MARS
Mercury trine Mars gives a keen, sharp, ingenious and
resourceful mentality. These individuals are enthusiastic
concerning any proposition and have the ability to enthuse
others. The native is a hard worker, to the point and
decisive. These people love argument or debate, and they have
wit and good humor, sometimes blended with a tinge of sarcasm.
They also have remarkable dexterity and mechanical skills.
They are able to physically carry out their thoughts and ideas
readily and with enthusiasm.

success in whatever vocations these people may pursue. Their
patient persistence permits no failure to stand in the way of
ultimate success. Therefore they generally become prominent in
connection with some serious enterprise such as secret
societies, the church or even politics or governmental
affairs. They are in demand for high positions and great
undertakings. They are quiet, subdued and serious in their
manner and their tidiness extends into their health and
MERCURY sextile PLUTO
This aspect indicates natives that are able to express
themselves powerfully with an abundance of will power. These
individuals are quite observant and are apt to possess
inquisitive minds. They are able to probe deeply into any
field of endeavor such as science, physics, mysticism, or
other eight house type occupations.
VENUS in 7th HOUSE
Venus in the seventh house indicates outgoing persons who are
gracious, charming, and polite. It signifies an early marriage
and an increase of prosperity afterwards. If the person finds
it expedient to enter into partnership, the presence of Venus
tends to make this relationship harmonious and beneficial. It
is also a good sign that if litigation seems necessary, some
way will be found to settle the matter without going to trial.
This position is good for actors, singers, and others whose
calling brings them before the public in a vocal capacity as
it ensures a kind and sympathetic reception on the part of
their audience. If adversely aspected it causes delay and
sorrow in marriage, loss through partnership, litigation, and
disfavor in the eyes of the public.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Catarrh of the small intestine;
NEPTUNE in 7th HOUSE
Neptune in the seventh house indicates communication between
marriage or business partners may be difficult.
Misunderstandings and not being able to express oneself is
common when Neptune is in the seventh house. There is also the
potential for deception or unrealistic expectations in
partnership or marriage. Neptune, when well aspected,
indicates a marriage to be one of a metaphysical, and
inspirational nature, where the two partners come together in
a true companionship. If Neptune is afflicted, this position
may indicate one that tends to prey upon the public in
general, or of those who become victims of public disfavor,
all according to the nature of the aspects.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Generally of good health except if on
the cusp. Brain disease, lumbago; blemishes.
This house, its cusp, and the planets located in it, indicate
how a person can best approach opportunities and the
resistance involved in bringing relationships into a fruitful
situation. These relationships can mean marriage,
partnerships, and business associations. The second house
refers to private assets, or what can be used to actualize
one's birth potential. The eighth house deals with business
contracts and agreements that are legally binding. The eighth
house field of experience deals with trust, management, and
responsibility. The second house deals with personal
management, whereas the eighth house with proper management of
business assets, profits and losses. It indicates where
binding agreements will bring legacy. It may also mean death
followed by rebirth, or the kind of disagreements which bring
unresolved frustrations and a future surrounded with karmic
ghosts. With such a native, emotional scarring tends to be
hidden. These individuals have a burning need to purge
themselves of past memories which brutally punish their bodies
for years. Many succumb to chronic ailments around the ages of
42 to 49 years old. With the background of this emotional
insecurity, they push hard for overt success, only for their
bodies to crack up under the pressure. Sex is often their only
form of organic release.
If the eighth house is unoccupied by planets, the native takes
emergencies in stride and usually faces crises with
appropriate action. If the house is occupied, eighth house
matters are of serious concern for the native. These matters
may take the form of handling other peoples money, dealing in
antiques, archaeological findings, etc. The eighth house also
indicates the end of physical life, the surrender of the soul,
the time and manner of death. The planets in this sign at
birth indicate the quality of death. Benefics here indicate an
easy and natural death. Malefics in this house tend to a more
sudden, accidental or even violent death.
AFFLICTIONS: Kidney disorders, genitourinary infections,
adrenal insufficiency, poisoning, death by consumption.
HEALING COLOR: Green
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Gray, black, brown, red, mahogany, green
VIRGO on the 8th HOUSE
In the eighth house we look for the possibility and effect of
extraordinary changes that might intrude on the native's life
and the inner strength that he/she might possess to cope with
the challenge. Virgo ruling the eighth house indicates the
native will be of help during devastating conditions or times
of change. These individuals must be on the alert for
situations of danger or accidents may occur. Their inner
strength comes from realizing solutions to change.
Experiences and the tests related to the ninth house are those
periods encountered by the individual to find the meaning of
things. The act of knowing belongs in the third house because
it implies mere contact with the immediate environment. It is
knowledge derived merely from sensations. The ninth house
relates to understanding, a far more complex process which
involves synthesis of many factors and data. The German term
"gestalt" applies to the ninth house as a type of knowing,
understanding, and referencing holistic experiences derived
from mystical and philosophical inquiry.
The ninth house is the house of symbols and words. Symbols
have to be interpreted. The radix chart is a set of symbols
relating to the location of planets and stars at the time of
birth. It symbolizes the complex relationship existing between
the native and the universe. Likewise, all religious concepts
and mystical visions are symbolic of man-to-universe
relationships. To speak of a "God Experience" is a typical
ninth house activity, a unity which the person projects and
asks for answers for all his conceivable needs.
The danger one faces in ninth house experiences is
over-expansion caused by ambition and greed for power and
power symbols, such as money. Ambition is the negative aspect
of this house, leading to compulsive egocentric relationships
that use other people for power or prestige. Knowledge is used
to achieve power. It is this type of knowledge our society
holds in high esteem. Ours is a society imbued with
competition and ambitions, worshipping success and power with
no concern for the environment and health of society as a
whole. Thus the relationships become perverted, destructive
and inharmonious to a wholesome life. In such a society, the
mind is used as the instrument of success. Group relationships
translate into compulsive cooperation, mandated actions, and
forced taxation. It implies twisting the laws, natural as well
as political, so they become tools for gathering wealth. This
is the mind of the politician, the corporate leader, the
scientist in search of inventions and discoveries for personal
If the house is unoccupied by planets, the native finds it
easy to accept certain philosophical principles or cause of
religion, and there is no resistance to understanding higher
principles. If the house is occupied, the native is concerned
with philosophical formulations or developed principles. Due
to this high thinking, people with benefics in this house are
some of the least likely to have health complaints.
The ninth house denotes the fundament, hips, thighs, hams,
higher mind, dreams and visions. Malefics in the ninth house
at birth tend to disturb and unbalance the mind, or cause
religious excitement and fanaticism, unorthodox views, and
trouble with religious authorities. It also points to dangers
in foreign travel, injury or ill-health, or even death abroad.
It is advised that persons with malefics at birth with no
benefics in this house should remain in their native land.
AFFLICTIONS: Accident and injuries to the hips, thighs and
hamstrings; nervous strain and stress; sports injuries and
HEALING COLOR: Scarlet
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Jade, purple, white, yellow
SCORPIO on 9th HOUSE
The ninth house has to do with our higher ideals and ability
to heal by faith. Scorpio ruling the ninth house indicates the
native's higher thinking drifts to realms not suitable for
mundane discussion. These individuals are likely to be
reformers or innovators in their fields, especially of
philosophy and religion. The native's values are exceedingly
open to continual change.
SATURN in 9th HOUSE
This position indicates a mind capable of delving into
philosophic, religious, psychic or spiritual subjects. It also
indicates those who succeed in life by traveling away from
home in search of new experiences. It is a position for a
president or chairman of a corporation or college. These
natives always make their mark in the world, the scope being
naturally dependent upon the nature of the aspects and the
line of endeavor selected by the person. When favorably
aspected it shows a very faithful and religious spirit, a
deep, serious and thoughtful mind, with the ability and
inclination to study law or philosophy. It favors success in
humanitarian work. When adversely aspected the mind has
difficulty understanding the higher truths as there is the
likelihood of self-deception through lack of comprehension of
the higher sciences and narrow mindedness. These individuals
may be critical and sarcastic. They may experience trouble in
legal affairs, danger on voyages, trouble in foreign
countries, and religious bigotry. Religion can impose severe
limitations upon the character rather than spiritual freedom.
These natives may have significant responsibilities in
connection with their job or the health of a parent. Patience
and persistence when confronted with problems in higher
education or legal problems, are the keys to overcoming them.
Breathing exercises, e.g. hatha yoga, chi-kung, will balance
and stabilize the mind.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Ill-health from travel, sea sickness;
unbalanced mentality, shallow breathing.
Anxieties: Not trusting the flows and processes of life. The
resolution is to approve of yourself and trust the processes
as righteous opportunities.
SATURN square NEPTUNE
Saturn square Neptune indicates a native liable to loss by
deception, treachery or fraud. There is a sense of wrong
timing of the course and events of life. One may focus on
wrong or irrelevant issues resulting in unfulfilled goals.

anxieties, and phobias stemming from the subconscious. These
natives may suffer from inferiority complexes or have fears of

tremendous will-power and is prone to personal success. A
peculiar destiny or karmic mission is characteristic.
In the tenth house an individual meets experiences which
result from his/her successes or failures in gaining social,
public or professional position. He/she is integrated, or
fails to become integrated into the social collective and
public status in the community. It is one's "office" which
defines one's stand in the community. First house potential
becomes actualized in the tenth, if all has gone well during
the unfoldment of preceding houses. It is a house of
vitalistic functions, being on the Midheaven or zenith. The
tenth house, the house of Midheaven, corresponds to the sign
Capricorn. It rules the knees, hamstrings and thighs. Planets
in this house have a powerful influence in matters of health
and disease, especially in regards to nervous tension and
stress developed from one's career, as well as injury from
falls, blows, or the death of a parent. In the male nativity
it rules the father, in the female nativity the mother and the
affairs of the mother.
If the tenth house is unoccupied by planets, the native's
ambitions and their probable outcome are more directly related
to that area of his affairs where the ruling planet falls
where the tenth house cusp is found. If the house is occupied,
the native has a conscious struggle both to formulate his
ambitions and put them across to other people. Any planet in
the tenth house reveals more of the outcome of this house than
the actual sign or "house rulership. " Planets in the tenth
house contribute directly to the native's position in life.
Their worries, internal pressures and incessant need to work
hard may drive them into chronic illness.
AFFLICTIONS: Obesity, anorexia nervosa; nervous tension,

of the father passed onto the sons".

public figures in their careers. They have large appetites and

digestion and offset putrefaction.
In the eleventh house, the power of society, as a collective
or group, is released through the individual. The power is
released through the activities the individual performs within
the social unit such as in their profession, church, club,
fraternity, etc. Success is seen pleasurable in the social
environment as his/her work and prestige unfolds. The
experience gained in the tenth house makes it possible to set
new social objectives, new professional goals, or to relax in
the company of one's peers or fellow workers. This house has
much to do with an individual's attitude towards achievement
and social success. It is the use a person makes of either
achievement or failure which establishes his/her self-worth.
Success or failure brings into the total being the way one
lives, feels, and acts and thus has great influence on the
health of the native. Success as well as failure must be used
wisely, significantly, and creatively. Regression therapy can
do much to undo the patterns that led to failure, or perceived
failure can be unfolded into a new dynamic.
If the eleventh house is unoccupied, the native does not
consciously need friends to share his/her wishes or hopes.
Those who have planets in the eleventh house always work best
within groups united for a common purpose. The eleventh house
is affiliated with Aquarius and rules the legs, calves and
ankles. The malefics in this house bring despair, false
friends, ruin and wicked children.

benefit to them. This position indicates a large circle of
acquaintances of either a social or domestic character. It is
good for family life and for socializing, giving ability to
fraternize and mix easily with other people. If adversely

ambitions, troubles, and sorrow and loss through those who
come to the person under the guise of friendship.

At the twelfth house, the sky comes to an end, as one has
performed his social or professional work in the eleventh. It
is described as the house which closes the human cycle of
life. They are either the Angels of Light beckoning to the
beyond, or they are the dark Guardians of the Threshold, whose
memories are shaped by frustrations, denials in life, fears
and sins of omission. In the twelfth house we meet the results
of our passive acceptance of that which was, or our spiritual
rebellion that helped make a new world. We face the karma of
society in a subconscious manner, or we face the karma of
individuals who fought society for selfish interests, or for
the sake of a better world.
The collective power of memories are witnessed in the twelfth
house. What is called karma may be so great that it stifles
the individual identity of the newborn, or drowns out the
rhythm of a new cycle of the man facing the probability of
rebirth. This results in the new cycle, becoming no more than
a repeat of the last cycle. According to ancient Indian
philosophy, the last thought held in death determines the
pattern of the future incarnation. One of the stranger
characteristics of our linear, Western society is its
inability to think in terms of cyclical processes. Such a
denial can be traced to a religious decision of the Council of
Constantinople in the 5th century A. D. which prohibited the
belief in reincarnation and other factors that began the era
of the dark ages.
The twelfth house relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss,
misfortune, the private hells, anguish, solitude or
confinement, hidden fears and worry. It is considered by some
as an "evil house", the house of restrictions and limitations,
and detrimental spiritual or psychic conditions of the native.
It is related to the sign Pisces. Its placement suggests the
best way to deal with one's ghosts and products of the
subconscious. The best way to deal with a shadow is to
illuminate it by the use of lights focused upon it from a
number of different directions. This process is utilized in
past life regression therapy. Ghosts and shadows of the
subconscious will vanish when subjected to the light of
understanding and compassion.
If this house is unoccupied by planets, the native is
generally not consciously confronted with its implications. He
does not live in fear and accepts and works within the
framework of his destiny. Not everyone in life is confronted
with the spiritual issues of the twelfth house. Many indeed
pass through life facing the material consequences of their
conscious ambitions as revealed by the tenth house. If the
twelfth house is occupied, the native has some matters in
which to confront and work out as shown by the houses ruled by
the occupying planets. The sign on the cusp of the twelfth
shows the general tempo of inner spiritual matters in the
native's life. Planets here indicate forms of introversion
with emotions that build up until some form of illness
manifests. Talking about their feelings through past life
regression is the best remedy for twelfth house individuals.
They need to learn that harboring envy, jealousy, and hatred
invariably brings disease and misfortune. The karmic law

CAPRICORN on 12th HOUSE
The sign on the cusp of the twelfth house shows the general
tempo of the native's inner spiritual values and motivations
in life. These subconscious values and tendencies support the
affairs and people in the native's life. Capricorn ruling the
twelfth house indicates the native's spiritual preoccupations
are limited and are to be considered on practical terms. These
individuals are likely to have some unconscious fears which
pose limitations on conscious expanse.
