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 (tenth house).
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 (except Scorpio).
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 vitality low.
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 manifest.
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 SCORPIO
Pluto, planet of fiery intensity is the ruler of Scorpio. Long ago, Mars, planet of fire and energy, was the ruler of Scorpio. Pluto can be thought of as a triple strength Mars and in many ways Scorpio is the most powerful sign of the zodiac. A true Scorpio's expressions and personality make the native appear magnetic and intense. Their thoughts are highly guarded, and others can get to know them only up to a certain point. They have a strong, competitive nature and are apt to be revengeful and jealous. This is a fixed sign and these individuals have tremendous staying power and are prone to be "workaholics".
Each sign has an external, internal, and structural rulership. Externally, it rules the nose and nasal bones, the pubic area, and genital organs. Internally, it rules the gonads, hemoglobin, bladder, prostate, descending colon, sigmoid flexure and rectum. It has influence over the vocal cords and larynx. Structurally it rules the pubic bones, os sacrum and coccyx, and nasal bones. This sign also has influence over the thymus and thyroid glands, liver, uterus, menstruation, sweat glands, and the endocrine glands in general.
Scorpio colors are red, black, violet, and midnight blue, while its most benefiting color is emerald green. Scorpio's birthstones are kunzite, spinel, opal, and quartz. These individuals should remember to wear these stones only if they wish to bring that particular energy into their life. Scorpio flowers include the anemone, heather, geranium, rhododendron, honeysuckle and gardenia.
BENEFICIAL BACH FLOWER ESSENCES:
Agrimony (rose family): Over indulgences, mental torture, worry, concealed from others, intoxicates to forget oneself.

PHOTOBIOTICS: Scorpios should avoid fatty, rich, and intoxicating foods and drinks. The native is benefited with a vegetarian diet. Green ray foods are stabilizing like brown rice, millet, wheat grass, spinach, lettuce, celery, cucumbers, etc. The Martian influence requires that the native drink plenty of water and fresh vegetable juices, and should avoid salt. Benefiting foods are cherries, oranges, lemons, asparagus and rhubarb.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Breast, heart
AFFLICTIONS: Anemia in women; adenoids, sore throats, hay fever; profuse menstruation, painful and irregular menstruation, ovarian disturbances; diarrhea, hemorrhoids; hypersensitivity; bladder problems, infections; obesity, diabetes; heart disease; genital infections; renal calculi.
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 astrological chart.
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 VIRGO
The Moon in Virgo increases the mental qualities if well-aspected; giving a retentive memory, a love of study and an ambition to excel. Chemistry, nutrition and dietetics are among their lines of study. They are rather reserved and of quiet demeanor, disliking flattery or emotional display. When adversely aspected, selfishness, narrow-mindedness, trouble in employment or with employees and malintestinal peristaltic often result. Serious minded, they are guarded about their feelings yet can be surprisingly unrealistic at times. Women may encounter sorrow through marriage due to a lack of passion.
This is a Moon sign of nervousness, neurasthenia, and debility in old age. Those with Moon in Virgo are susceptible to colon cancer. They crave sweets and sugars and thus prone to hypoglycemia. This sign opposite Pisces makes them prone to tired, aching feet.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Arms, shoulders, bowels.
AFFLICTIONS: Acid indigestion, dyspepsia, constipation, biliousness, colic, flatulence, and dysfermentation.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Brown rice, chamomile tea, olive oil, grapes, saffron, almonds, passion flower, and lemonade. To stabilize their bowels, they should eat only whole grains.
FOODS TO AVOID: Refined and processed foods.
RASHI HOMEOPATHIC MIXTURE: Camphor, gelsemium, lycopodium, ambra grisea, arnica, phosphorus, ammonium.
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 SCORPIO
Mercury in Scorpio indicates a shrewd and penetrating mind, keen aspiration, a quick wit and a sharp, sarcastic tongue. The native's disposition is bold and stubborn. These individuals may be headstrong and difficult for others to get along with. But these people are extremely resourceful, dauntless and able to overcome difficulties which would crush others. They tend to equate knowledge and information with power and secrecy. Once they form opinions, they stubbornly cling to them. Analytical with a healthy dose of skepticism, they are excellent investigators. They are attracted to mysticism and the occult. When Mercury is afflicted, they are quarrelsome, skeptical and cynical, always holding opposing views and sarcastic to others. They are always intrigued by the opposite sex which may be misconstrued by others.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms, bowels, back.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Pains in the bladder and genitals, menstrual pains, genital disorders; rheumatism with backache, pains in the arms and shoulders; bowel disorders; carelessness and forgetfulness; arrhythmia; stuttering, hoarseness, and deafness.
NERVINES: Carrot juice, artichoke.
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 wastes.
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 SCORPIO
This position indicates a jealous love nature, intense passion and emotions, and a love for sensation, luxury, and pleasures. Excesses of sex and passion in early life may lead to health complaints. If well aspected, there is sometimes a religious fervor and a chance for gain by legacy. If afflicted, there may be jealous marital relations, impulsive natures, and a need to control relationships. This position can indicate susceptibility to venereal disease, disorders of the womb, ovaritis, vaginitis. The consumption of protein and dead animal flesh should be moderated to prevent sore throats and hemorrhoids.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Heart afflictions; ovarian and genitourinary disease, uterine complaints, disordered womb; hemorrhoids; weakness of the bladder; tonsillitis and sore throats; hay fever; venereal infections, syphilis.
ASTRINGENTS/TONICS: Cumin, peppermint.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Throat, kidneys, sex organs.
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 accidents.
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 LEO
Natives who have Mars in Leo are usually fearless, independent, generous, and honest in their dealings with others. If well aspected, they reach positions of responsibility, trust, and authority. They work hard and play hard, are enthusiastic, energetic, and seek admiration from the opposite sex. If Mars is afflicted it indicates a fiery, violent temper, which will take its toll upon the heart. There is liability to fever and inflammatory diseases, sunstroke, and rheumatism of the back. The native would benefit with chiropractic care and regular massage. This Mars placement also indicates possible loss through speculation and other business ventures; loss of children, and disappointment and sorrow in love. There is also danger of accident, which is usually the outcome of carelessness or foolishness.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Heart disorders, aneurysm, syncope, arteriosclerosis, arrhythmia, palpitations, angina; biliousness and bowel disease, eructation, stomach pains, indigestion; spinal disorders, knee problems.
ANTIPHLOGISTICS/COOLANTS: Honey, sunflower sprouts and seeds, pineapple, rosemary.
VULNERARIES: Aloe, bay rum.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by burns.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Knees, heart, belly.
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 the liver.
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 hormone.
JUPITER in PISCES
Jupiter in Pisces indicates a charitable, sympathetic and hospitable nature which inclines the native to help the needy. Being of a sensitive nature and subject to the influences from the astral world, they frequently have psychic experiences and premonitions if other factors in the chart agree. If Jupiter is afflicted in Pisces it indicates a vacillating mind, a cowardly nature indulging in vices and drugs. The adverse aspects also indicate loss through speculation or business enterprises.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Head, breast, heart.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Impure blood with edema, swollen/puffy face and body, obesity; heart afflictions; bowel disease; sores and ulcers of the feet; lung disorders; tendency to contract incurable illness, cancer and tumors; abdominal tumors, colon cancer.
LIVER CLEANSING: Purging of the bowels with magnesium salts; drinking ozonated water; wheat grass juice mixed with cayenne peppers, radish, garlic to add warming properties.
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 short periods.
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 calcium metabolism.
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, ossicification.
SATURN in AQUARIUS
Saturn and Uranus are co-rulers of this sign and indicate a native with a courteous, sympathetic and humane disposition. These people are reserved, serious, and good reasoners. They are usually very distinct and deliberate in speech. They make many friends among the intellectual, the aged and the wealthy, and those who usually help them in their idealistic pursuits. When Saturn is afflicted in Aquarius the nature is shrewd and cunning. There is a tendency to prey upon friends and to use them to further their own interests. Unless attention is given to diet and bodily care, varicose veins, weak ankles and kindred annoying ailments may develop. By reflex action with Leo, the heart may also be weakened. This position also carries with it a tendency to heart trouble and varicose veins. The native does not do well on a high carbohydrate diet as the blood is prone to under oxygenation. The native is also prone to calcium deficiency.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Neck, head.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Anemia, poor circulation, impure blood, arteriosclerosis, varicose veins; spinal problems, ankylosis, stiffness; dental maladies; disorders of the arms, ankles, and legs, cramps, swollen feet, lameness and numbness; affections of the eyes, weak vision, cataracts, retinal degeneration; backache; heart afflictions and heart failure.
COUNTERACTING STIMULANTS: Sage, endive.
RULING VERTEBRA: 2nd, 3rd, 4th lumbar.
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 telepathy.
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 contortions.
URANUS in VIRGO
Uranus in Virgo, when well-aspected, gives a keen, original, scientific and mechanical mind, and a strong and well developed intuitional faculty that is good in business. It brings success in teaching, chemistry, electronics, metaphysics and the arts. Uranus afflicted in Virgo indicates the native is apt to become subject to strange ailments, prone to hypochondria, irritability of mind, and a tendency to become a burden to themselves and those around them. This position also indicates disappointment in life because of limitations in employment or dealing with employees.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Over-active mind, hypochondria, irritability; strange ailments; cramps in the fingers; bowel complaints, constipation, colic, appendicitis, flatulence; functional diabetes.
ANTISPASMODICS: Dill, parsley, peppermint.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by drowning (afflicting the Moon); strange ailments; sudden illness in the digestive organs and abdomen.
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 function.
NEPTUNE in SCORPIO
Neptune in Scorpio, when well aspected, intensifies the emotions of the native and gives a desire to explore into the secrets of nature. It is a good position for those who work in scientific research, chemistry or astrology. It gives energy, enthusiasm and inspirational perception beyond the realm of logic and insures successful accomplishment of whatever is undertaken. When afflicted it indicates a horrible temper of a sensuous and passionate nature. The native's sexual drive is over stimulated with an inordinate desire for sensations. It indicates desire for alcohol or drugs and a tendency to drowning by accident.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Venereal disease, appendicitis.
HERBAL STIMULANTS: Garlic, allspice.
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 waste matter.
PLUTO in VIRGO
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change, upheavals, and drastic transformations. Pluto's period in Virgo was 1957-1971. Virgo rules health, practical applications of science and technology, and the work force in general. During the recent Pluto transit in Virgo, the general state of America's health and welfare underwent unprecedented changes, and the once powerful unions experienced great loss of influence. During this time, computers underwent their principal development, revolutionizing business and industry. Automation began to replace human labor. The widespread packaging of food, medicine, and health products blossomed during this time. Televisions were produced in color for mass consumption. Babies born in this area often have never tilled the earth and know little of what components are actually put in their bodies, having grown up in the pre-packaged generation. Antibiotics in feed supplies created the candida epidemic and we now have long term intestinal problems. Virgo rules the intestines.
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 horoscope.
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, meningitis, migraines.
HEALING COLOR: Indigo
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, pink, red, champagne
A Sagittarius Ascendant indicates individuals with optimism, ambitions, and a flexible personality. These natives cherish their independence and are usually outspoken and fearless. This is a dual natured sign like Gemini, thus there are two types of individuals - one of energetic enthusiasm, and another that tends to be lazy unless motivated. Their power may come from their ability to influence other people to subscribe to their way of thinking. This sign on the Ascendant tends to enlarge the body, making the native tall, giving a ruddy complexion, fine clear eyes, open face, chestnut colored hair with a tendency to become bald with a high forehead. The nose is strong, long, and well formed. It also tends to give well proportioned hips, thighs, and lovely legs. It is found that when the Sun ascends in Sagittarius, and is well aspected, physical ailments are rare.
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: The Sagittarian body is usually tall, slender, well made and somewhat stooping. The neck is set forward, as on a horse, the archetype of the first 15 degrees. The body is short waisted and wider at the hips, the legs long and well shaped, making the whole figure graceful.
KEYWORDS: Philanthropic, idealistic, orthodox, judicial, pleasure-loving.
SECOND DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Aries decanate has a more combative face with narrow and sloping shoulders.
KEYWORDS: Frank, adventurous, pioneering, argumentative, self-confident.
THIRD DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Leo decanate also takes on some of the characteristics of the next sign Capricorn which is usually in the first house for those born under this sign. There is an angular look, thinness and boniness, the neck may or may not be short.
KEYWORDS: Proud, magnanimous, speculative, attractive, vivacious.
EMPOWERMENT COLORS, GEMS, FRAGRANCES: Green, purple, white, yellow; amethyst, bloodstone, imperial topaz; calendula, lemon balm, mace, rosemary.
MODERATING COLOR: Scarlet.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Long, full or oval face, blue or gray eyes.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sunstroke; anal disease, hemorrhoids; baldness, hair loss; lameness of the legs, sciatica; lung troubles; rheumatism of the hip; nervous disorders.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Lameness, crippled (afflicted by Saturn or Mars).
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 and fears.
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
CAPRICORN on 2nd HOUSE
The second house shows how the native earns money from his/her own efforts and from what resources. These natives win through persistence and seeing matters through to the bitter end. These individuals are usually thrifty and very concerned with their personal finances. The may tend to be obsessed with money to the point that nothing else matters to them. They need to focus on their priorities and learn what is truly valuable in life.
SATURN in 2nd HOUSE
Saturn in the second house, unless well placed by sign and favorably aspected, usually indicates a lot of work, an uphill struggle all through life that is poorly rewarded. It implies that material assets, as well as values and priorities, are a constant source of concern. These persons usually have many opportunities to better their material positions, but seldom take advantage of them. They may be so wary about being taken advantage of that they refuse to help deserving people or needy causes. On the other hand, when Saturn is well placed, especially in Libra, the sign of its exaltation, money will come by inheritance, economy, careful conservation, investment and similar methods. Some of the very wealthiest of the world's financiers have Saturn in this position, learning how to retain, if not horde money, and benefiting by inheritance.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Swollen glands in the throat; hypothyroidism, obesity, arthritis.
Chronic disease: Your refusal to change and fear of the future. See life as it is today and trust tomorrow to be okay.
Obesity: Eating while running away from your feelings; insecurities, self-rejection. Learn to be at peace with yourself and your belongings. Learn to give a little to others.
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
AQUARIUS on the 3rd HOUSE
The third house deals with the native's immediate speaking, writing, and communications audience in his/her immediate work or professional environment. Aquarius ruling the third house indicates intelligent individuals who have flashes of intuition and are capable of putting these feelings to practical use. They tend to develop clever solutions and ingenious ideas. If made to listen to lectures, sermons, or long dissertations they have little patience and if not intellectually stimulated are quick to find the nearest exit. Unusual relationships with brothers and sisters are indicated.
JUPITER in 3rd HOUSE
Jupiter in the third house, when well-aspected, indicates a native with an optimistic nature. The native is apt to be talkative and has the talent to become a proficient writer, speaker or salesman. The native will have educational opportunities and will be popular among his or her brothers, sisters and neighbors. Success is indicated by mechanical skills, travel, or promotion. When Jupiter is afflicted the person is liable to accidents while traveling, but will not be injured. The native may be awkward in movement, disorganized, and a procrastinator. If Saturn afflicts he/she may become careless and indolent, thus forfeiting the respect and esteem of the immediate family. If Mars is adverse they will mistrust him or her because of rash and imprudent acts or exaggerated truths.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Repetitive stress injuries, cumulative trauma disorders, eye fatigue, musculoskeletal discomfort.
JUPITER opposite URANUS
Jupiter opposite Uranus indicates an impulsive nature liable to act in an unexpected manner resulting in one's own undoing. Loss by speculation, lawsuits and impulsive extravagance are also indicated, with many changes both of occupation and residence, loss of friends and reputation. These individuals are deliberately confrontational and stubbornly entrenched in antagonistic modes. They tend to go all out on new endeavors only to suddenly abandon them. This can be a very dangerous aspect for the native and does not favor "get-rich-quick" schemes, or proselytizing on behalf of their beliefs. Their friends find them inconstant and unreliable. The native may engage in eccentric religious beliefs, mysticism, even occultism.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Unbridled flights of imagination leading to accidents or disaster; obesity. When the native is under stress, there can be tics, spasms, twitches and cramping.

KARMIC TENDENCIES: Conflict with traditional religious or educational institutions; personal unpopularity due to blunt and wanderlust behavior.
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
ARIES on 4th HOUSE
The fourth house is the area of private concerns, emotional security and how the native inwardly feels about himself/herself. 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. People with Aries on the fourth house see themselves as strong willed and self-made, having to fight for everything they want. Security only comes from self-obtained efforts. The native dominates the home or domestic life and the home may sometimes be a battle field for emotional spats. There may be some fear of the parents, especially the mother.
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.
AFFLICTIONS: Heart disease (with malefics in this house), overeating, egomania, spinal disorders, liver problems, arteriosclerosis, hypertension.
HEALING COLOR: Purple
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, gold, green, red
TAURUS on 5th HOUSE
The fifth house is where the ego extends into so-called pleasurable pursuits. Taurus ruling the fifth house indicates individuals who focus on material comforts and how it relates to money to obtain these luxuries. These natives genuinely enjoy the physical pleasures life has to offer. A positive expression indicates artistic creativity as musicians, artists, and writers. These individuals are fond of children, understanding what activities will amuse and entertain them. Afflictions in this house indicate bad luck in gambling and troubles in the native's romantic life.
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 medication.
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 disorders.
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; abdominal disease.
HEALING COLOR: Aquamarine
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Black, amber, scarlet, brown, dark blue
TAURUS 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. Taurus ruling the sixth house indicates money, sound housekeeping, and desire for comfort as part of the native's profile. Afflictions to this house point to laziness and many jobs of mediocrity. Routine and pleasant surroundings are mandatory for good health. In this house of food is found a fondness for starches, potatoes, breads, and the like. Simple food in large quantities is the hallmark of this sign, but no doubt many are gourmets with a tendency to overeat and become rather plump. If they have Sagittarius rising, and if they watch their diet, they will probably live longer than most others.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Normally of robust health provided the native does not overeat or over-indulge.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Disorders and weakness of those parts ruled by Taurus - neck, cervical vertebrae, throat, lower jaw and teeth, larynx, esophagus, salivary glands, thyroid gland, eustachian, vocal cords, occiput and cerebellum; heart disease from inharmonious living.
FOOD ALLERGY TENDENCIES: Apple, avocado, banana, barley, beans, breads, buckwheat, carob, guava, kiwi, mango, oats, peas, pears, spinach, rye, tomato, vanilla, wheat. These foods should be checked by 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:
Signs of Healers pertaining to the seventh house:
Chiropodist: Gemini, Virgo and Pisceans are especially adapted to this work.

HEALING COLOR: Blue
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Browns, swarthy colors, crimson, green
GEMINI 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. Gemini ruling the seventh house indicates the native is attracted to witty, charming, and mentally stimulating people. Frequently, there is more than one marriage or partnership, as these individuals always have their eyes set on greener pastures. If they fail to find a suitable mate they may not marry at all.
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
CANCER on 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. Cancer ruling the eighth house indicates a native that is very apprehensive about death. On the positive side, the native may be psychic and able to receive messages from the dead. Abrupt changes are apt to frighten the native unless they are able to emotionally tune them out. Their inner strength comes from their intuition and the ability to move at the right moment.
MARS in 8th HOUSE
Mars in the eighth house, when well-aspected, indicates intense energy, stamina, and aggressive behavior. It also brings financial benefit through marriage, business partnerships or by legacy. The natives are sure to have very specific desires and no hesitation about trying to gratify them, not only in business but also in sex. They may also be secretive in their movements and activities. When Mars is afflicted, the financial conditions grow worse after marriage through the extravagance of the marriage partner, by accident or illness of long duration.

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 fame.

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 applies.

Yet, well-aspected by Venus, Jupiter or Saturn, the native will be capable of much self-sacrifice. The sign the Sun occupies should be carefully studied. Thus when in Aries, trouble through persons in authority is indicated; in Taurus, trouble in financial matters, or unexpected loss through secret enemies; and so on with the rest of the signs.
