Suzanne Somers-Body and Soul Report
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
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
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,
SUN in LIBRA
True Librans are intellectuals, actively seeking knowledge and mental
stimulation. They tend to be hard workers, especially after the age
of thirty. They have a strong sense of fair play and equity and make
good counselors and diplomats. These individuals are good negotiators
and are apt to become disturbed when they are around dissension they
can not control. Some Librans avoid physical activity and are
addicted to luxuries and creature comforts. They also tend to be fond
of rich and sugary foods which may result in adrenal fatigue and
Each sign rules structural, external and internal relationships.
Libra rules the excretory functions through the kidneys and skin.
Externally it rules generative and urinary organs, anus, adrenals,
and vasomotor system. Structurally, the sign rules the lumbar
vertebrae. The pathological tendencies of this sign are lumbago,
kidney disease, uremia, polyuria, renal calculi, and edema.
Libra colors are ivory, pink pale green and rose. Turquoise and blue
are their benefiting colors. Libra's birthstones are chrysophrase,
sapphire, lapis lazuli, and turquoise. These individuals should
remember only to wear these stones if they wish to bring that
influence into their life. Libra's flowers include roses, daisies,
violets, asters, geraniums and orchids.
BENEFICIAL BACH FLOWER ESSENCES:
Cherry plum: Desperate, fear of losing control, dread of doing wrong.
Walnut: Need of stability during major life changes, dislike of
emotional or physical states.
HOMEOPATHIC POLYCREST REMEDY: Rhus tox - Used in rheumatism and
cutaneous diseases; used in treatment of sore muscles and
CELL SALT: Natrum phosphoricum
HEALING NOTE: D
AROMAS: Chamomile, daffodil, dill, eucalyptus, fennel, geranium,
peppermint, pine, spearmint, palmarosa, vanilla.
PHOTOBIOTICS: The Libran kidney weakness should make one careful of
uric acid produced by eating animal flesh. They should learn to drink
copious quantities of water that has been charged with blue solar
rays. Cereals, beans, corn, almonds, and eggs are suitable for their
protein. Fresh vegetable juices like cabbage, celery, and cucumber
will keep their kidneys clean and functioning. This is the sign of
balance and one should avoid sugar and refined foods and intoxicating
drinks. Recuperation comes through mental relaxation and a change in
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms
AFFLICTIONS: Anemia; arteriosclerosis, brain disorders, weak
eyes/vision; kidney disease, edema; skin disease, eruptions, acne;
facial neuralgia, pimples, sores, ulcers; disorders of the shoulders
and arms, stiff shoulders; debility.
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
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
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Lymphatic system, breasts, mucous membranes,
menstruation/fertility/uterus in pregnancy, stomach and alimentary
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
MOON in CANCER
Moon in Cancer indicates a native with a kind, sociable and
sympathetic disposition, but one who takes the line of least
resistance. Their feelings and emotions are overactive, and if not
kept under control may cause the native to daydream. These
individuals love their creature comforts and can become lazy and
disorganized, if not sloppy. If well aspected, the digestion tends to
be strong and the health good. If afflicted, they tend to be very
emotional, unable to examine the facts with sustained logic. Their
health tends to become undermined by poor digestion, particularly
later in life. Frequent changes in job or occupation are possible
resulting in fluctuating financial status.
This sign is one of illness in infancy and a sensitive disposition.
As babies these natives were probably finicky eaters and developed
food allergies. As adults, eating tends pacify them which may lead to
weight gain and obesity. This Moon position denotes a weak
constitution and a puffy-soft body with pale or dusky skin due to
lymphatic stasis if the Moon is afflicted with hard aspects. Females
are prone to anemia, swollen breasts, breast nodes, and menstrual
upsets. The liver has to be guarded in this Moon sign as it is
subject to congestion and torpidity due to poor eating habits and bad
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Head, breast, stomach.
AFFLICTIONS: They have a tendency to catch cold easily, suffer from
dysfermentation, belching and bloating, are dyspeptic, and in the
long term are prone to cancer, especially of the breast and
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Cayenne pepper, garlic, horseradish and mustard as
these spices offset the coldness of this sign.
FOODS TO AVOID: Dairy products, as these encourage mucus production
and lymphatic stasis.
RASHI HOMEOPATHIC MIXTURE: Secale cornutum, bryonia, magnesia
muriaticum, kali bromatum, acid nitricum, silicea, 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
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,
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Homeostasis, hormonal balance, ovaries,
kidneys, venous system, tissue tone, nutritional functions, skin and
VENUS in SAGITTARIUS
This position indicates a native that is refined, light-hearted,
genial with an optimistic disposition. It fosters imagination and
intuition if well aspected. If afflicted, it tends towards a lack of
social tact, diplomacy sadly amiss for the proper words. Friendly,
outgoing and idealistic, these individuals enjoy a wide variety of
acquaintances from all walks of life and of different cultures.
Uncomplicated friendships are much easier for them to handle than
passionate entanglements that can leave them feeling hurt and
confused. Money can be gained through sports, transportation,
speculation and investments. This position can indicate skin
ailments. The native should avoid using tallow based bar soaps as it
tends to plug the pores and reduce the elimination of toxins from the
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Gout, disorders of the hip, shoulders and
arms; lung troubles; skin problems.
ASTRINGENTS/TONICS: Endive, dandelion, linden.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms, sex organs, thighs.
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,
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 SCORPIO
This is one of the strongest signs in which Mars can be placed,
indicating the natives are resolute, courageous, and willful, yet
also mechanical, practical and hard working. Their manners can be
blunt, the mind is acute and capable of directing others. Such people
are often found in government positions or where authority is
required. They are also successful as chemists, surgeons,
investigators, writers, and financial manipulators, or in any other
occupation which involves the use of liquids, sharp instruments and
tools. They have strong likes and dislikes, are somewhat revengeful
due to their intensity of purpose to attain their goals. There is
likelihood of gain through marriage. When Mars is afflicted in
Scorpio the native is apt to be quarrelsome, revengeful and
overbearing. This often brings out the worst side of their passionate
nature which can sap the vitality and lead to premature aging unless
moderated. It is also indicative of accidents and the possibility of
legacy. In a woman's horoscope it shows that the husband has good
earning capacity, but is rather too free and generous with his means.
When afflicted, the husband tends to squander money on
self-gratification. These natives are prone to hemorrhoids and should
drink adequate amounts of water (6-8) glasses daily to keep the liver
and intestines clear.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Urinary and seminal complaints, cystitis,
balanitis, genital infections; anal disease, piles, hemorrhoids;
adenoids, sore throats, enlarged tonsils; painful menstruation,
ovarian and uterine disease, tendency to abortion; appendicitis;
arrhythmia; diabetes; gout; renal stones; anosmia, parosmia; prostate
ANTIPHLOGISTICS/COOLANTS: Carrot juice, gentian, hops, peppermint.
VULNERARIES: Arnica, chamomile.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by burns (opposite or square the Sun or
Moon); death at sea (afflicting the Sun, Moon or Ascendant); rape.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Head, sex organs, arms, thighs.
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,
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 SCORPIO
Jupiter in Scorpio indicates an ardent, aggressive and self-reliant
nature. The native is enthusiastic, constructive and resourceful and
is usually successful in practical occupations. If Jupiter is
afflicted it may bring loss and trouble through the indulgence of the
sexual natures, and love of rich and expensive foods, both of which
undermine the health of the native, especially in regards to the
heart. There is also a tendency to be manipulative which does not
favor friendships or associations.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Thighs, feet, heart.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Genitourinary and seminal complaints,
uterine tumors; cystitis, edema and swelling with puffy body,
accumulation of uric acid; genital eruptions; piles and hemorrhoids,
nosebleed; diseases from self-indulgence, obesity, heart disease.
LIVER CLEANSING: Wheat grass juice, cherry juice to cleanse the liver
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
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 LEO
Saturn in Leo, when well-aspected, indicates favors from people in
high social status and success by obtaining public appointments. The
Saturnine virtues of tact, diplomacy, discretion and executive
ability are characteristic. The constitution of these people is not
strong, but they may maintain perfect health by the conservation of
their vital force through diet and hygiene. When Saturn is afflicted
however, they can be cruel and quick-tempered, jealous, and use
underhanded methods to satisfy their ambitions. This position also
indicates heart trouble, if not failure due to overexertion. Pride
with a severe attitude are the native's hindrances to spiritual
growth. This position indicates proneness to calcium, magnesium and
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Sex organs, kidneys.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Organic weakness of the heart and
endocardium, poor circulation, arteriosclerosis, hypertension,
stroke/apoplexy, syncope, cardiac asthma; spinal problems, stiffness,
ankylosis, backache; tendency to low spirits, nervous disorders; gall
stones; genital disorders. Physical strain is harmful to one's health
when Saturn is placed here, the native is prone to back injuries.
Proper physical exercise, however, is vital due to a tendency to a
sluggish heart and poor circulation.
RULING VERTEBRA: Taken as a whole, Leo rules the dorsal spine, but
specifically the 2nd, 3rd, 5th dorsals.
COUNTERACTING STIMULANTS: Chicory, pineapple.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by attack of beasts (cattle, horses,
elephants, quadrapeds, etc. especially if opposite or square the Sun
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
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 GEMINI
Uranus in Gemini indicates the native is versatile with mental powers
indicating originality, intuition and ingenuity. If Uranus is
favorably aspected, success may come from electronics, aviation,
science, metaphysics, and astrology. The native is alert,
progressive, readily grasps new ideas, and is broad minded. When
Uranus is afflicted, the mind is eccentric, and changes from one
issue to another without any definite logic. Adverse aspects also
indicate conflicts with brothers, sisters and neighbors, and
liability to accident while on short journeys. The native is apt to
be disliked in their domestic environment.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Active mind; spasmodic chest pains, abnormal
breathing with nervousness, bronchitis, emphysema, hacking cough,
asthma; heart affections; cramps and muscular spasms in the arms and
shoulders; weakened digestion; colds with hard, dry cough.
ANTISPASMODICS: Dill, fennel, marjoram.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Sudden illness or accident of the shoulders, arms,
hands, or lungs.
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 LIBRA
Neptune in Libra, when well aspected, gives a musical, poetic or
artistic temperament. It indicates a native of a highly spiritual
nature which gives the native great comfort and satisfaction. When
Neptune is afflicted in Libra, there is a tendency to be part of
clandestine, unconventional and illegitimate relations, either of the
native or of the partner, according to the nature of the planetary
aspects to Neptune. It also indicates a weak and over-emotional
nature which fosters the dislike of those in their domestic
environment. Marriage or business partnerships may have to be
dissolved by litigation with loss to the native.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Edema.
HERBAL STIMULANTS: Cinnamon, curry.
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
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Reproduction, defecation, expulsion of waste
PLUTO in LEO
Pluto in any sign always represents fundamental change, upheavals,
and drastic transformations. Pluto's period in Leo was from
1938-1957. Leo rules kings and representatives in government. These
children grew up in rebellion either born during the war years or
shortly thereafter. The idea of self-sufficiency bloomed later in
these children, returning to the earth, living in communes and
counterculture societies with a basic distrust of the establishment.
Pluto in Leo also marked the period of atomic energy, which is ruled
by Pluto. For the first time in recent history, man witnessed the
atomic bomb. A worldwide power struggle followed in the form of a
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sarcoma, cancer.

The first house and the sign that rules this house, is also known as
the Ascendantor 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
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 ofthe 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, meningitis, migraines.
HEALING COLOR: Indigo
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, pink, red, champagne
The planetary significator is Venus and these natives are usually
graced with beauty in one form or another. They are self-reliant if
not stubborn, persistent in work and capable of working long hours.
Fond of physical fitness they are apt to have very good stamina. They
are practical and trustworthy. These natives are also lovers of
nature, beauty, and the arts. Most are to a certain extent,
conservative and resistant to change. The Venus traits of pleasure
runs strong, and these natives enjoy rich food and fine wines. They
desire physical comforts, luxurious clothes, and sociable
environments. A Taurus Ascendant tends to indicate a strong neck and
shoulders, often stooped; full nostrils and thick lips, pensive
eyebrows, wavy or curling hair, dark eyes, full and broad forehead
with heavy jaws. Their vulnerable areas are the neck, throat and
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
FIRST DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Taurus physique is usually squarely
built with slender limbs. These natives have a tendency to become
stout later in life. The eyes may contain a lack luster appearance.
The eyebrows are bushy and deep set; the cheek-bones high and the
nose aquiline. The voice is soft and pleasing.
KEYWORDS: Extravagant, theatrical, prudent.
SECOND DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Virgo decanate indicates a slight,
sensitive and elegant body. These natives are often tall.
KEYWORDS: Analytical, critical, scientific.
THIRD DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Capricorn decanate indicates a native
with sloping shoulders. The native often exhibits a harsh expression
and voice. Their lips are taut and thin.
KEYWORDS: Diplomacy, tact, caution.
EMPOWERMENT COLOR, GEM, AND FRAGRANCE: Turquoise; emerald; patchouli.
MODERATING COLOR AND GEM: Yellow, jade.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Generally of good vitality if not afflicted.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Gluttony, fond of dainty foods, heart
disease, obesity; astigmatism; one who gives up easily, lack of
KARMIC TENDENCIES: The third decanate rising, ruled by Saturn, they
face poverty, slavery, and wretchedness.
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
GEMINI on 2nd HOUSE
The second house shows how the native earns money from his/her own
efforts and from what resources. It indicates individuals who want to
benefit from their ideas and thoughts. Their natural tendency is to
earn money by their wits. Careers in writing, broadcasting and other
intellectually based occupations are suited to those with Gemini on
the second house.
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,
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
CANCER on 3rd HOUSE
The third house deals with the native's immediate speaking, writing,
and communications audience in his/her immediate work or professional
environment. Cancer ruling the third house indicates individuals with
strong emotional, if not sentimental, identification with their
primary education, brothers and sisters, and neighborhood. If
afflicted, Cancer on the third house indicates individuals who have
trouble expressing themselves. They may be accident prone and lack
imagination. It also indicates a strong need to define their
feelings, though they may prefer doing it in a secretive or
MOON in 3rd HOUSE
This position indicates a mind that is active and extremely fertile
in imagination, ever alert for new information, and generally one
possessing a fund of knowledge. It also indicates thoughts and speech
are guided by unconscious factors arising from family conditioning
and early childhood. There is a strong liking for mental occupations.
The mind, however, is to some extent lacking in continuity. Thus
occupations that do not demand a permanent residence are best suited
to these people. The limelight of publicity appeals to the native,
and these individuals are usually good at editing and reporting in
newspapers, where one must be on the alert. If the Moon is afflicted
it indicates unfinished education, which usually results from the
continual influx of new ideas. When favorably aspected, it is good
for learning and mental attainments along popular lines. If the Moon
is strengthened by good aspects to Mercury they may reach a position
PSYCHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: The influence of the Moon indicates those
who like to keep busy in their own communities. Their emotional
identification is linked to their environment, early education and
their brothers and sisters.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Insomnia, unrefreshing sleep; prone to
daydreaming, fantasy and nervousness.
Insomnia: Not trusting the processes of life; guilt. The resolution
here is to know tomorrow will take care of itself.
Daydreaming: The breath must be regulated by rhythmic breathing in
order to stabilize the mind. The practice of meditation, Ch'i Kung,
and yoga would be most beneficial.
MOON trine MARS
Moon trine Mars indicates a wonderful vitality and a strong physique
so that the person is able to overcome tendencies of ill-health. It
indicates a resolute, courageous, energetic and ambitious mind of a
resourceful and constructive nature. The native gains the confidence
and esteem of others and earns considerable money. Their nature is
extremely free and generous. They possess strong domestic feelings
and will fight for the home and family.
NORMERGIC TENDENCIES: Generally of good vitality; an abundance of energy.
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
CANCER 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. Cancer ruling the fourth house
indicates an individual who has deep, sensitive moods. These
individuals are highly receptive to people around them. Their
emotions can run so deep that these natives may not be independently
aware of their own subjective self. The Cancer sensitivity these
natives draw from their environment, and being responsive to the
public tide, help them to build elements in their own natures.
SATURN in 4th HOUSE
Saturn in the fourth house indicates gain from inheritance, those who
enjoy very stable family relationships, also success from investments
and administration of houses and lands, agriculture or mining
property. If afflicted, these individuals may have difficulties in
connection with property, inheritance and mines, and much domestic
trouble. They foster great concern about their childhood. When
adversely aspected, it indicates the early death of one of the
parents. As adults they may be strict and inflexible in their own
domestic environment, having the same negative and karmic effects
upon their children. These individuals need to learn how to handle
hardships related to home and family in order to achieve future
happiness. This position, whether well or ill aspected, tends to make
the native a recluse in the latter years of life. The native's
success grows better as life advances.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Achlorhydria, dyspepsia, distention of the
stomach, catarrh; breast nodules, swollen glands; hereditary
dispositions, illness in old age.
Dyspepsia: Gut level fear, dread, anxiety coupled with chronic
complaining. The message here is to learn to chew one's food
thoroughly as one digests the new experiences in life.
Breast nodules, swollen: Overprotecting, over mothering, not
nourishing the self. The message here is to learn to let go and trust
the processes of life.
SATURN sextile NEPTUNE
Saturn sextile Neptune is good for success in worldly affairs for it
brings out the saturnine virtues of honor, self-reliance and
determination by which the person gains the confidence and esteem of
others. These individuals often work behind the scenes so that their
Neptunian inspirations remain unobstructed. It indicates the ability
to study metaphysics and mystical subjects, and also to become
proficient in them. They have a gift to get to the bottom of
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Religious studies and inspiration.
PLUTO in 4th HOUSE
Here the Plutonian compulsions operates within one's inner security,
home life, and emotional depths as an urge for a place of retreat.
There is a desire to be master of one's own home and domestic life. A
strong occult tie with the earth may be found in a transformed love
of nature, ecology or conservation. Or one may wish to know the
secrets of life through geomancy (using a divining rod), or
exploring. This Pluto position also indicates some form of upheavals
in home life. These childhood experiences ultimately leave one with a
sense of no control over life matters.
KARMIC LESSON: Rediscover your deepest feelings about yourself and
your sense of security, inner peace, and contentment.
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
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,
HEALING COLOR: Purple

LEO on 5th HOUSE
The fifth house is where the ego extends into so-called pleasurable
pursuits. The native is apt to be overly confident with an exuberant
ego. Leo ruling the fifth house indicates individuals with strong
libidos and procreative urges. They are ardent in love, and strongly
proud of their children. Pleasure principles are focused on sexual
needs, fine food and drink, as well as other comforts and delights.
Afflictions to this house can indicate personal pleasures that are
repressed. The native may be overly sensitive to criticism from
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
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.

HEALING COLOR: Aquamarine
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Black, amber, scarlet, brown, dark blue
VIRGO on 6th HOUSE
The sixth house deals with careers, routines, and health. The
natives' obligations to others as well as themselves appear in this
house. Virgo in the sixth house indicates care and precision in one's
work to the point of fault finding and criticism. The native is apt
to have developed good eating habits, is fond of health foods, and
may be a finicky eater. The native prefers meals served on time. This
is also a sign that delights in pork and pork products and the native
should be cautioned against parasite infection.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Disorders and weakness in the parts ruled by
this sign - digestive functions, generative organs (especially if
there is a malefic in this house), small and large intestines; lower
lobes of the liver; mesentery; pancreas; solar plexus and sympathetic
nerves; uterus; parasitosis.
FOOD ALLERGY TENDENCIES: Almond, barley, beans, caraway, celery,
chicory, dill, endive, fennel, filberts, marjoram, millet, oats,
parsley, peanut, pecan, peppermint, pistachio, rye. These foods
should be checked by electroacupuncture, bioneutralizer, applied
kinesiology, or by cytotoxic testing.
NEPTUNE in 6th HOUSE
This position denotes a sensitive constitution and a native generally
concerned about their health. They take on the conditions of others
by sympathy, and it would be important that when the health fails to
resort to dietetic and natural cures instead of resorting to
medicines and toxic drugs. This position denotes sensitivity to drugs
and especially to anesthetics. The native is vulnerable to
hypochondria or illnesses that are difficult to diagnose or treat. It
also indicates individuals who work in isolated or secluded
environments, or those whose job is related to secrecy, deception, or
fraud. Good aspects to the luminaries, Jupiter, Mercury or Mars
indicate latent psychic faculties which if developed, give the power
to render much selfless service to humanity. It is favorable for
druggists, chemists, dietitians and kindred vocations. When afflicted
it predisposes to abuse of the spiritual faculties, trouble through
employers, a sensuous, self-indulgent nature and chronic wasting
diseases. The native is also liable to illusions and false hopes
passed on by allopathic physicians in regards to health and matters
pertaining to recovery not based on sound advice and of detriment to
the native's welfare.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Hypochondria, illness from taking
medications, chronically ill; peculiar appetites, whimsical, tobacco
habit, given to stimulants and narcotics; spasmodic diseases.
SUN in 6th HOUSE
This is the cadent house of digestion and health, therefore when the
giver of life is confined to the sixth, it is said to be partially
robbed of its vitality. If not well-aspected, the native's health may
be impaired but one must not assume that because the Sun is placed in
the sixth house the health will always be poor. "The stars impel but
do not compel", and since knowledge is power, even though the Sun may
be badly aspected, if the person knows how to safeguard his health he
can rise above the influence of the stars. If the person is placed in
a humble environment, this position of the Sun denotes some promotion
while in the employment of others. If he/she is an employer, this
position of the Sun is good for success in business. Health and
physical fitness should be important to them as this position
indicates weakness of the Sun's vital factors. These natives should
receive regular exposure to natural sunlight and be careful of their
diets, avoiding artificial foods and chemical medications.
PSYCHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Sun in the sixth house indicates those
whose identification is tied to their work or profession. The sixth
is the house of service and labor, thus one whose Sun is
well-aspected in this house, especially if the influences are from
Mars or Jupiter, service in the lines of chemistry, nursing,
dietetics, nutrition, etc. are especially indicated.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: General ill-health, especially in men;
chronic disease, deformities, hypochondria, lowered resistance to
disease, frequent illnesses (especially when in bad aspect to the
Moon, or the Moon is afflicted in Cancer); weak back; bladder
troubles; liver problems; mental illness.
Worry, hypochondria: Frustration eats away at the self. The
resolution is that life is now with ease and joy, and others will
Incurable Disease: It came from nowhere, it can go back to nowhere
when one realizes that miracles happen everyday.
SUN trine URANUS
Sun trine Uranus makes the native intuitive, original, inventive and
independent in manner, conduct and personal appearance. These
individuals are also likely to be eccentric or different from the
norm. They are apt to be of high-strung temperament but well under
control, and rarely show temper or anger. These natives are idealists
and are likely to be flexible and able to adopt different points of
view. Though their reactions can sometimes be unpredictable, they
rarely show negative attitudes, and are willing to accept almost any
possibility. They are apt to be egalitarian in their attitudes toward
society, interested in and accepting of all people, regardless of
their backgrounds, race, and culture. Medically, this is a good
aspect for it shows the body is able to adapt or compensate for
defects or dysfunctions. This aspect tends to add rhythm to bodily
functions, including peristalsis, blood and lymph flow, nerve
JUPITER in 6th HOUSE
Jupiter in the sixth house indicates good health. These individuals
find success in the care and treatment of the sick, and respect and
esteem in the course of their occupation. These natives are happiest
when unsupervised in their work. They are cheerful and optimistic,
and able to work with deadlines, but at their own pace. These
individuals may also tend to exaggerate their own importance. If
Jupiter is afflicted it indicates a tendency toward disorganization
and procrastination, and general disorders produced by over-indulgence of the appetite.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Bowel diseas
e, swollen abdomen, constipation, toxic liver, obesity and impure
blood from gluttony, dietary indiscretions; leg pains, rheumatism
from dietary indiscretions.
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
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:

relationships. Scorpio ruling the seventh house indicates natives
that are attracted to power and status. They seek energetic as well
as mysterious partnerships. These individuals possess good insight
into other people's motivations. Afflictions in this house indicate
feelings of jealousy, combativeness and possessive with regards to
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.

energy into relationships, marriage, business partnerships or joint
ventures, and dealing with other people in general. It may indicate
an early marriage, or a marriage that may be hard to establish. When
well-aspected it indicates a capable, industrious and aggressive
marriage partner. These natives are untiring in their promotion of
the welfare of the family. If Mars is afflicted it may indicate an
accident or sudden death to the marriage partner who may be of a
domineering, quarrelsome nature. If one of the water signs, Cancer,
Scorpio or Pisces is on the cusp he/she could also be liable to drink
and be unusually attracted to sex, particularly if Mars is afflicted
in Scorpio. It is indicated that the positive behavior of this sign
is proper and loving interactions with the partner, as working alone
can sap the vitality and desire to accomplish goals.

danger to one's life and health. These natives should bring peace

MARS square PLUTO
Mars square Pluto indicates a test between spiritual renewal and the
ego, or personal power for self-aggrandizement. It is a life
challenging aspect that brings them as the perpetrators or victims of
death through war, crime, or catastrophe. These natives must learn
how to use power constructively because their actions will have
far-reaching consequences for themselves as well as others. They
should learn how to control feelings of revenge and jealousy. They
often lose their tempers and become violent. These natives may also
possess brutal and criminal tendencies.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Adrenal fatigue, hypoglycemia; septic
inflammations, boils, hives, eczema; cancer, malignancy.
NUTRITIONAL ASPECTS: Deficiencies of vitamin B-12, folic acid,
selenium, potassium. The native tends to crave table salt which

while drinking fruit juices to replenish potassium stores.
BENEFICIAL FOODS: Green leafy vegetables, bananas, peanuts, oranges.
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Death by war, physical combat, violence,
revolution, crime, or natural catastrophe; contact with demonic
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; cellulite.
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
SAGITTARIUS 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.
Sagittarius ruling the eighth house indicates a native that sees
change as predictability, that we are all part of a master plan or
universal pattern. These individuals are physically insensitive to
change and appear as if death is almost welcomed. Their inner
strength comes from faith in established codes of ethics and
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.
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 trauma.
HEALING COLOR: Scarlet
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Jade, purple, white, yellow
CAPRICORN on 9th HOUSE
The ninth house has to do with our higher ideals and ability to heal
by faith. Capricorn in the ninth house indicates a native with sound,
sane, and practical convictions. Pragmatism is their guide. These
individuals' thoughts may be vacillating, while their principles tend
to be soundly consistent.
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,
self-undoing, misery; accidents; evil of a parent, the "sins of the
father passed onto the sons".
HEALING COLOR: Magenta
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Gray, brown, black, white
CAPRICORN on 10th HOUSE
The tenth house reveals one's ambitions and the degree of worldly
success he/she may receive. Capricorn ruling the tenth house
indicates natives with deep convictions about accepted values.
Achievements are apt to be due to persistence rather than talent.
Just how difficult the path is can be shown by Saturn's position.
Afflictions in this house point to abuse of others in authority that
may result in public disgrace or ruin. Those with Capricorn on the
tenth should remember proper posture and breathing while sitting at
mealtimes. Without proper breathing, the native is apt to overeat and
suffer from indigestion.
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.
AFFLICTIONS: Heart function; injury or disease of the legs, calves
and ankles; blood dyscrasia.
HEALING COLOR: Red
EMPOWERMENT Colors: Sky blue, orange
AQUARIUS on 11th HOUSE
The capacity and need for friendship and the effects of these
contacts on one's perspective are shown by the eleventh house.
Aquarius ruling the eleventh house is a very favorable sign for
friendships with all types of people. The native chooses unique
personalities that are broad-minded. Friendships are apt to have
unexpected developments, sudden beginnings and endings, or twists of
unique interest. The location of Uranus will show the tempo of the
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
AFFLICTIONS: Auto immune disorders, reduced thymus functions from
negative thoughts; afflictions, hurts and injuries of the feet;
lymphatic congestion; worry, brooding, despair and despondency.
HEALING COLOR: Lemon
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: Green, blue, white
PISCES 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. Pisces ruling the twelfth house indicates a native
detached and dispassionate to the point of having a "me first"
attitude. The native easily survives the ills and heartbreaks of
KARMIC TENDENCIES: Self-undoing, misfortune.
