Suzanne Somers-Body and Soul ReportSUN
The Sun is the source of your vital power, principally ruling the brain and heart in man and woman. Its sign location (zodiac Sun sign), aspects to other planets, and house position indicate the vitality of the body, especially in males. The Sun is thus the indicator of health in males, while the Moon governs health matters in females. However, the Sun and Moon are important in health matters in both sexes. The Sun signs and Moon signs at birth, along with their aspects and positions, are regarded as the "fountains of life on Earth". The Sun is one of the vital centers in a star map, along with the Moon, Ascendant (rising sign), and Midheaven (tenth house).
The power of the Sun and how it radiates within you can be thought of as light rays emanating from a light bulb, powering into your body. The Sun signs are divided into the Four Elements: FIRE (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius); AIR (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius); WATER (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces); and EARTH (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). All males born with the Sun in fire signs have the best prospects for good vitality, as light radiates most freely in a body composed of the fire element. Light also radiates freely in air, and these natives are the next strongest, but air sign people become weakened by worry and nervousness. They need rest to recuperate. The earth element for sunlight is linked with the densest matter, gives tenacity, wear and tear, rather than vitality. Theses individuals tend to recovery slowly from their illnesses. The water element for transmission of sunlight gives the weakest constitution, being a more difficult medium to manifest light (except Scorpio).
The Sun is the giver of life, but is quite impersonal in its influence that the average man or woman rarely contacts its higher qualities in a conscious or positive sense. Planetary aspects, even if hard (square or opposite), are better than no aspects at all, as in the latter, the native is hardly touched at all by its influence. This fact is the reason "Sun sign" prophecies found in the tabloids and daily paper make no sense to some individuals. When well placed, however, it signifies will power, authority, and self-reliance. If afflicted by the Moon or Ascendant, it will make the health feeble and the vitality low.
The Sun rules the metabolic fires of your body's cells. Its placement represents how that energy is needed and distributed. This topic has been termed PHOTOBIOTICS by the author. All biologic life is ruled by the Sun. Your body requires copious quantities of light from many sources to maintain your health, vitality, and beauty. Each Sun sign has recommended foods that tend to foster vitality, as well as dietary pointers, and warnings about certain foods that will disturb your body's distribution of the Sun's vital rays, indicative by your Sun's zodiac placement (the season of the year in which you were born).
In terms of the Zodiac, the twelve signs represent the Grand Man, and rule the different parts of the body, from head as in Aries, to toe as in Pisces. Thus, there is a zodiacal rulership over the body and its organs. In terms of Sun signs and rising signs, it represents where disease potential exists. The locations and transits represent how an organ or bowel will be afflicted since these are rotating, dynamic entities. The houses at birth, signify why disorders will manifest.
Inharmonious aspects to the Sun are angles and locations of the other planets in their orbits in relationship to the Sun. They are called afflictions. For example, if the Sun is afflicted by a hard angle to the Moon, the health will be weak, and the rays of the Sun will be on the cold side, the eyesight will suffer.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Vitality, the absorption of prana through the spleen, the immune system, heart function, spine and back, eyesight, individual cellular metabolism, the blood and oxygenation, consciousness.
SUN in 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 hypoglycemia.
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 sciatica.
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 scenery.
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 meats.
The foods and spices that benefit Moon afflictions are those ruled by the Sun and Mars. The Sun produces fruits and vegetables which when eaten raw and/or fresh, will vitalize the individual and ward off disease. The old adage, fresh is best, aptly applies to the health rules.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Lymphatic system, breasts, mucous membranes, menstruation/fertility/uterus in pregnancy, stomach and alimentary tract.
ARE YOU A SUN OR MOON DOMINATED PERSON ?
The night is ruled by the Moon, and the Sun rules the day. The ancient astrologers believed that those born during the day are more ruled by the Sun, whereas those born at night are more ruled by the Moon. Moon activities tend to raise the action of morbid germs, while the electric action of the day tends to destroy them. Night activities are less vitalizing than daytime activities. Females and Moon people tend to suffer more at night when ill. Moon people are more restless, inconstant, and changeable. The Moon rules the personality and lower mind, while the Sun rules the intellect and higher mind. Health tends to return when one begins to "see the light".
MOON in 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 diet.
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 stomach.
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 muriaticum.
Mercury, when well placed in the nativity chart, indicates a good and balanced mind. It rules the cerebral hemispheres. Ill-aspected and afflicted, it shows a tendency to various disorders of mental reasoning, bad judgment, nervous disease, and tendency to gamble, swindle, insomnia, and a lack of spiritual calm. The location in the chart shows what body parts may be prone to neuralgia.
Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, therefore it manifests in diseases related to respiratory and digestive disorders, particularly of nervous origin. Physiologically, Mercury rules the respiration and breath. Mercury afflicted at birth indicates a tendency to shallow breathing. The Hindus believe rhythmic breathing is necessary for direct link between the soul and mind. Unrhythmic breathing severs this connection leading to nervous conditions, those easily influenced by others, proneness to depression, and even insanity. Proper and unregulated breathing beginning in early life leads to a cascade of pathological actions including lack of intellectual development, oxygen deficient blood, tendency to overeat since the diaphragm does not "massage" the stomach due to stifled breathing, lymphatic stasis since breathing opens the lymph channels, and lethargy due to lack of vital force and sluggish pranic currents. Mercury placement indicates much more than the mundane astrology books indicate.
Mercury is considered a neutral planet, in that its transmissions are governed by the aspects to other planets in the chart. When Mercury conjuncts the Sun, the ego is involved; aspected to the Moon, the subconscious and habits; to Jupiter, exaggeration, etc. When Mercury's nervous messages are distorted by the rays of another planet, inaccurate reception of information and inappropriate neural commands are likely. Simply, response does not match stimulus resulting in unbalanced behavior. If the large planets are involved, this can translate into important health consequences.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Mercury's chief influence is on the nerves. In regards to aches and pains, the placement of Mercury in the sign of body rulership shows tendency to affliction when ill-aspected. Thus, Mercury in Aries shows the tendency to headaches, in Taurus a tendency to laryngitis and sore throats, in Gemini chest pains, etc. To offset Mercury afflictions and thus reduce tendency to aches and pains, the native must learn proper and rhythmic breathing. Taking up study of yoga or Chinese Ch'i Kung would be of great benefit.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Nervous system, nervous faculties; breathing, the hands, the touch; organs of speech and hearing.
MERCURY in SCORPIO
Mercury in Scorpio indicates a shrewd and penetrating mind, keen aspiration, a quick wit and a sharp, sarcastic tongue. The native's disposition is bold and stubborn. These individuals may be headstrong and difficult for others to get along with. But these people are extremely resourceful, dauntless and able to overcome difficulties which would crush others. They tend to equate knowledge and information with power and secrecy. Once they form opinions, they stubbornly cling to them. Analytical with a healthy dose of skepticism, they are excellent investigators. They are attracted to mysticism and the occult. When Mercury is afflicted, they are quarrelsome, skeptical and cynical, always holding opposing views and sarcastic to others. They are always intrigued by the opposite sex which may be misconstrued by others.
SUSCEPTIBLE AREAS: Shoulders, arms, bowels, back.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Pains in the bladder and genitals, menstrual pains, genital disorders; rheumatism with backache, pains in the arms and shoulders; bowel disorders; carelessness and forgetfulness; arrhythmia; stuttering, hoarseness, and deafness.
NERVINES: Carrot juice, artichoke.
From the days of Hippocrates, father of Western medicine (Fifth century B. C.), the ancients emphasized the value of diet and exercise as the prime methods of restoration of health and longevity. The ancient figurines of women, known as the "Venus statues", depict a bottom heavy, obese figure of a woman. Some of these Paleolithic figurines are believed to be more than 20,000 years old. They are found in all areas of Europe, as far away as Russia, and they all show women with huge, fat hips and buttocks. Today, it is known as the "Venus Syndrome", the connection between Venus and the lower body fat, today referred to as "cellulite" - the thickening and laxity of connective tissue beneath the skin, around gelatinous pockets of fat, which traps toxic matter and body wastes.
Venus is the principle of harmony, equilibrium, homeostasis, and thus rules the body's hormonal secretions. The Moon and Venus rule strongly over the affairs and health of women. It rules over all regulatory and secretory functions, especially the female sexual hormones. It rules the chemical composition of the body's fluids, acidity and alkalinity, sodium-potassium balance, and the other mineral ions. The planet is basically benefic in action, but in hard aspect frequently points to numerous little disorders, showing a general relaxation of the system and body tone, but eventually debilitates the native as the years pass. Its afflictions are generally maladies due to indiscretions in diet and habit.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Venus has traditionally been associated with diabetes. Hard aspects to Venus point to lack of homeostasis, lack of tone, congestion and swelling of the body's tissues; cyst formation; and kidney disorders. Venus also rules over the veins and indicates such disorders as varicose veins, hemorrhoids, vascular spiders, etc.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Homeostasis, hormonal balance, ovaries, kidneys, venous system, tissue tone, nutritional functions, skin and complexion.
VENUS in 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 sweat.
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, migraine.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Body heat, inflammatory response, adrenal function, formation of hemoglobin and blood clots, digestion of food, muscular activity, glycogen storage and liver function, genitals.
MARS in 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 hypertrophy, prostatitis.
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, jaundice.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Liver functions, especially detoxification and glycogen storage, production of urea and bile; fat metabolism; blood and arterial system; growth hormone.
JUPITER in 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 and kidneys.
In Greek, Saturn is known as "kronos", from which our word "chronic" is taken. Permanent disease is signified by the placement of Saturn in the chart, and its course and attack by the motion of other planets. Its action signifies binding, crystallizing, cold, dry, hardening, depleting, obstructing, retarding, and suppressing. The afflictions of Saturn are for prolonged periods, whereas Mars afflicts more acutely, for short periods.
Saturn's placement in the chart is associated with the solid matter of one's body, ruling all dense components and processes. Saturn in any part of the horoscope is considered an affliction to the zodiac sign, house, and parts of the body so ruled. It tends to weaken and make one more liable to disease, and the sign and parts ruled are usually considered the most vulnerable, even to cause death through disease and malignancy. Those parts ruled at birth by Saturn indicate reduced nerve and energy supply, insufficient oxygenation, accumulation of tissue acids, and thus fibrositis, myositis, and rheumatism. The planet Saturn indicates subnormal conditions by inhibition, retention, and suppression. The medical astrologers at the turn of the century stated that carcinoma is most liable to occur in that part ruled by the sign that Saturn is in at birth. Saturn also has rulership over the blood's clotting factors, the parathyroids, and calcium metabolism.
Saturn's afflictions come from lack of self control, spiritual development, and materialistic tendencies. When manifested negatively, Saturn's principle action is quite simply fear. The hard aspects indicate opportunity to come to terms with a specific kind of fear. The type of fear is indicated by Saturn's aspects (conjunct, square or opposition) to the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury or Venus.
PATHOLOGICAL TENDENCIES: Typical Saturnine problems are chronic skin complaints, stiffness of the joints and muscles, deformity; dental problems; deafness; depression; slowed atrophy and functioning of the body's processes; scleroses of the body's tissues, rheumatism from accumulated tissue wastes in the sign or house of the nativity chart.
Subluxations of the spine are partial dislocations of the vertebra which impinge and put pressure on the nerves passing through them, shutting off nerve supply and causing irritation and pain leading to disease. Along the lines of chiropractic philosophy, health is maintained by a correctly aligned spine that requires periodic adjustments by manipulative therapy. Palpation and X-ray discover these deviations but your astrological chart can identify weak areas that will be chronically affected. Each sign of the zodiac, and malefics placed in them, tend to afflict the vertebra, especially the vertebra ruled by the sign in which Saturn is found at birth. Such subluxations tend to be the major one throughout life. For example, the sign Libra rules the kidneys and if Saturn is here at birth, the 10th, 11th, 12th dorsals, and 1st lumbar will be afflicted the most, and this is known before examination. From a chiropractic or osteopathic standpoint, the emphasis of treatment should be in the area where Saturn was afflicting at birth as this area will show stasis, restrictions, stiffness, and congestion.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing, ossicification.
SATURN in 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 potassium deficiencies.
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 or Moon).
Uranus rules your electrical life breath, and thus your avenues for personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates potential for originality of thought and expression, yet its energy is not accessible to much of humanity at this time. In society it rules the apparently radical ideas and people that are years ahead of their time. They lead to revolutionary events that upset established structures. The Aquarian age of which we are now entering is ruled by Uranus. Its cycle began with the discovery of electricity which it rules and is now interconnecting everyone on the planet with a synthetic telepathy.
Karmically, all aspects of the personal planets - Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, or the Ascendant - indicate areas of life where there is a strong urge for freedom of expression without restraint and the need for constant stimulation and excitement. This planet also represents the capacity to be high-strung, excitable, and temperamental. The motives of Uranus thus represent the purpose of radically repolarizing an individual's past lives, and open one up to new experience either through stimulating, shocking, and even traumatic crises to find new ways of living. People who are ruled by Uranus are lovers of freedom, rebellious at least restraint, intuitive and inventive. They are aviators, high level mechanics, or deal directly with electricity. It also tends towards erratic behavior and can make people irritable and brusque in manner.
ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY: Skin, bone and joints, teeth, hearing, ossicification. Uranus rules all the rhythmic processes of the body. It rules the movement of the whole digestive tract from mouth to anus. Thus, the common symptom of its afflictions are spasmodic manifestations and disrupted rhythms - muscles spasms, shock, cramp, strictures, ruptures, paroxysms, and contortions.
URANUS in 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.

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 specific acts.
One can often discover what zodiacal sign was rising at birth (if time of birth is not known) by studying a person's facial features and expression. The head symbolizes the essential character of the individual. The head is ruled by the first house. The first house rules the body form, constitution, and temperament. The physical appearance, strength and vitality, weight, height, color of hair and eyes, etc. are largely determined by the rising sign, degree rising on the cusp, etc. The position of the first house ruler and planets rising modifies these features. The zodiacal sign ascending denotes the part of the body more liable to affliction from external causes such as trauma and infection.
The benefics, Jupiter and Venus, in the first house at birth indicate a good constitution, whereas the malefics, Saturn and Mars, denote scars, birthmarks, moles and defects 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 horoscope.
Regarding the compatibility of healer and patient, the rising sign in each natal map should be in harmony, belonging to the same triplicity, that is in trine or sextile to each other. If the patient has Aries on the Ascendant at birth, his/her healer should also have a fire sign on the Ascendant, as in Leo or Sagittarius. If the healer employed has Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn on the Ascendant it would tend to be adverse, if not in results, certainly in relationship and cooperation. The sextile and trines naturally tend to inspire confidence and faith between healer and patient.
AFFLICTIONS: Head and face, endocrine disturbances which affect the mental states, brain tumors, high fevers, meningitis, migraines.
HEALING COLOR: Indigo
EMPOWERMENT COLORS: White, pink, red, champagne
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.

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 ears.
The rising sign is divided into thirds, or 3 "decanates", which have a powerful influence over the appearance and form of your body. The sign is simply divided into three 10? aspects as follows: 0-10? first decanate, 11-20? second decanate, and 21-30? third decanate. Each decanate is ruled over by a planet. The first ten degrees is ruled over by the indigenous sign ruler, the second takes on the qualities of the next elemental ruler, and the third the successive element sign ruler. Thus, the first decanate of Aries is ruled by its Mars, the second takes on the qualities of Leo, and the third would combine the qualities of Aires and Sagittarius, and so on throughout the zodiac. Simply locate the first house on your natal chart and note which degree is rising in the sign listed. This gives you your decanate. If in the last few degrees of the sign, e.g. 26? or more, you would also take on characteristics of the first decanate of the following sign.
FIRST DECANATE APPEARANCE: The Taurus physique is usually squarely built with slender limbs. These natives have a tendency to become stout later in life.

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.

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, and consciousness.
No planets in the third house means response in a natural fashion. One or more planets in the third house indicates a self-conscious need to express thoughts. It may sometimes indicate speech difficulties. The native is often asked too often to help other people, brothers and sisters. The disease of "other people" can lead to great frustrations and nervous stress.

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 of prominence.

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.

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

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 Chinese character for danger, also means opportunity, depending solely on one's perspective and ability to be creative. The test of the fifth house is that of isolation, or emergence as a unique and valuable human being. The test of the second house is that of ownership and possessions. In the third house it is thought and how to handle ideas to approach challenges of one's environment. The fourth house test is that of stability. The fifth is creative self-expression.

The sixth house implies a crisis of perception, the period of personal readjustment, the time in one's life when one is forced to realize what he/she has done and whether success has come to rest or to haunt. Once a work is completed, the composer is often painfully aware of how it could have been produced better. A person's inner worth is often revealed when faced with experiences and periods of inadequacy, frustration, or defeat. These crises take their toll upon the body, require guts and fortitude, and great reserves of vitality. This house represents fundamentally, everything that deals with personal crises, the way to best meet them, and the direction of personal growth and transformation. The sixth house is somewhat karmic in nature by its perception or reason for duties, debts, and obligations.
The sixth house is known as the "house of health" and the sign on the cusp of this house indicates which body parts and organs prone to disease and affliction. Illness may be the direct result of some defeat of the vital energies unable to cope with a challenge to grow stronger, or an attempt by the soul to show a need for a revision in attitude.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This house shows the test of functional cooperation and participation between individual and society. Function suggests purpose, both inherent and potential, in man or woman. Purpose is only revealed as one operates within the group or global economy. It is the field of human experience that the person can be most basically transformed and can gain freedom. Planets in this house reveal compelling pressures and motives for destiny. In such cases, individuals may find themselves driven to enter into certain types of relationships as part of their destiny.
While the first house represents how the native appears to others, the fourth house shows how the natives sees himself or herself, the seventh house represents how others appear to the native. It represents those whose lives touch the native and how they respond. If the house is unoccupied by planets, he/she is comparatively free of the influence of others in most of his/her affairs. These individuals do pretty much as they please, but it also means others do not generally help them either. The affairs of this house are always related to the area of another house where the ruler of the sign on the seventh cusp lies. If there are one or more planets in this house, the native is consciously dependent on others in some respect and other people tend to control his/her affairs. Natives with planets in this house may find it difficult to "stand on their own two feet". They feel accomplishments need to come through other people or their partners or spouses. The Sun located here is indicative of good health, while Saturn signifies a potential for a short life. Mars here, indicates a bad wife and sickness.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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