Title: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Jun 14, 2013, 08:06 AM
Hi All,

We have had some preliminary discussions on the possibility of doing a thread on medical astrology which is reflected below. I would like to know how many people would in fact be interested in actively participating in such a thread, and what thoughts you may wish to share about this possibility as it relates to various legal issues from different countries.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Wendy,

I am considering that, at some point, of starting a medical thread in which we can review and discuss the anatomical and physiological astrological correlations that JWG taught.

God Bless,Rad

I'd be totally into that Rad, it'd be so wonderful if you did that !   
   
Hi Upasika,

Well I am really thinking about it. If we do it it will have to be done very carefully because of various laws in various countries concerning medical laws. So am thinking about how to do it in such a way as to not violate any of these things.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

I would totally be into studying JWG's perspective on medical astrology!  I am aware of medical astrological laws and hope we can find a way to pursue.  I'm not sure its a problem to study it, it's more of an issue when applying it with clients, for money, at least that is my understanding.

Thanks and God Bless,
Wendy

Oh gee I'd love the opportunity to practice that Rad.
One thought that shows up is to preface that thread with a disclaimer of some sort.
   
Upasika   

Hi Rad / all,

I can see we would need to be sure we were legally protected. I'm no lawyer, but I cannot imagine how any country that legally supports free speech could object to the simple learning/discussion of medical astrology that such a thread would amount to ...??

As Wendy says, applying the knowledge to clients for money is an entirely different issue - numerous countries have laws restricting what may be possible. But that would be something each participant/reader would need to take responsibility for, by clarifying for themselves what exactly they are permitted to do by law in their respective countries. Often it amounts to not being allowed to advertise or officially practice medicine without certain qualifications/permits.

My own view though, is that having the knowledge itself can do no harm, and even if only used indirectly, could potentially be very helpful. In the vein of what Ari suggested for the thread itself (which seems a good idea), I'd initially give any potential recipient of medical advice from me a full unconditional disclaimer (possibly signed by them) to the effect that I am not medically qualified as such, and unless confirmed as safe by their healthcare professional, to approach cautiously as any suggestion I gave must be used at their own risk.

However, used with sensitivity, intuition and maturity ... given how amazingly accurate EA is in it's workings, I would sense this knowledge could be invaluable to have at our disposal and could potentially benefit many. My feeling about it anyway...

Hi Upasika, Wendy, and Ari

Thanks for your thoughts/ suggestions about this. I will consider your suggestions, and others, to see if it will be ok to do this. If we do it will occur after we are done with the thread on the planetary method.

God Bless,Rad

Hi Rad,

I would like to add my opinion about the potential for legal liability arising from postings related to health issues. Personally I would like to have the opinion of a US lawyer involved in this legal area, but I don’t know who to ask, so I’m just posting my opinion and what I discussed with a couple of other Chilean lawyers.

1) Even though in principles there should be no question that the intention of the thread would be the EA learning of medical astrology, and not the counseling of clients or patients, there are in fact many people who are seeking medical information on the internet, for their own health improvement or their client’s health. Also, there are many websites offering medical information. Here I found some information on this:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1761893/

2) Some of the information that these ‘patients’ or practitioners can find in this way can be suitable for their health needs, and some not, depending on each case, and since offering or just posting health information is different than counseling and prescribing-which needs to occur on an individual basis- in principle it should be the sole ‘patient’ or practitioner’s liability if they chose to apply the ‘information’ to the individual case.

3) This also involves the freedom of expression which is so important in the US constitution, much more than in other countries.

4) HOWEVER, the potential does exist that someone may wrongly apply the information and knowledge to an individual case to which it is not applicable, and obtain undesired results. Further, I can imagine that posting health information that can provide an accurate understanding or diagnosis, beyond consensus, or information that can work in very effective ways in the cases when it does apply, such as EA and Rad’s knowledge can offer, can attract people wanting to put such source of information down. And, in these cases, the ‘arguments’ against this would of course revolve around medical information ethics, medical fraud (http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2001/06/cureall.shtm), etc. A specific point to consider relates to ‘alternative’ remedies, and further, some remedies which the same website offers or refers to.

5) I totally agree with the need to consider a very clear DISCLAIMER. I think a Disclaimer should state:

(1) That the information posted has a general nature, or applies only to the real or hypothetic birthcharts discussed, and does not mean to be applicable to other people.

(2) That each individual case is unique, and thus, the individual people should not rely solely on EA medical information that has not been given on an individual consultation basis.

(3) That the information provided originates in astrological and alternative medical understanding, and not necessarily in medical science, and that the EA practitioners are not medical doctors or acting as such.

(4) That the type of medical information or knowledge that is shared here, including references to alternative remedies, is not meant to replace medical treatments or prescriptions when applicable, and that each individual person should always consult their own personal medical advisor.

Such type of Disclaimer could perhaps be added in the “If this is your first visit, please read this first”, in the heading of the thread, and automated to appear in the individual posts within the thread.   

I think such type of Disclaimer should suffice, but I still feel that perhaps it could be good to have a US lawyer opinion on this matter anyway. I’m wondering who could I ask having knowledge in this field who would be willing to give advice without charging, but perhaps some other participating in this message board can have closer connections with US lawyers.

God Bless, Gonzalo

In regard to Medical Astrology, Eileen Nauman is possibly the foremost authority on Medical Astrology in the U.S.  She wrote a classic text way back in 1970 I believe.  Naumean is not afraid to share her knowledge or findings on-line or in print.  She is however very  good at pointing out what you should, can, should,'t and can't do with such knowledge.

There should be no reason why we can't discuss Medical Astrology here and learn what JWG taught.  Like Gonzalo suggests there should be a disclaimer.

Here is a good article on the subject:

http://innerself.com/content/self-help/personal-growth/astrology/health/5569-medical-astrology.html

The important part:

"As a medical astrologer, the goal is not to prescribe for the client (which is against the law) but rather to become a clearing-house of information, in addition to educating a client about possible choices. A medical counselor can become the hub of a wheel, educating him/herself in many systems of medicine, and approaches to healing, that are available to clients.

It is very important not to misrepresent what you are and what you do. When a client accepts you as a medical astrologer, it is not the same as if s/he accepts you as his/her "doctor". Nothing could be further from the truth. In essence, you are a healer using the tool of astrology as a focus on health-related problems. Your responsibility is to send this individual (after informing him/her of the many choices s/he has) in a direction s/he has chosen and is comfortable with to seek competent medical help.

A medical astrologer does not tell a client to take a vitamin, mineral, herb, homeopathic remedy, or anything else. The medical astrologer educates the client about these things, then leaves the responsibility of choice up to the person. One's health is one's own responsibility. Gradually, people in this country are coming to view and accept this vital concept. Your health is your responsibility."

I'm in Rad - I have been thinking about this since it was first mentioned here on the MB.  

I know there are other message boards that discuss medical astrology, so I'm not sure we would be doing anything illegal.  Gonzalo's post seemed to cover the issues, so maybe we could start a discussion based on his comments-suggestions.

I should mention, I have been dealing with several long standing health issues, so when I "disappear" from the MB it's because I don't have the energy to participate.  Getting to the root of things now, thus looking forward to that changing soon.

Thanks,
Wendy

Hi Rad,

I am very interested in this topic.  As long as there is a disclaimer that we are doing it for educational purposes only, I do not really see it as a problem.  I'm not a lawyer,  but it seems that it is no different than discussing any type of holistic health subject (herbs, Reiki, Yoga etc) - we just have to be very clear that its for educational purposes and that anyone suffering from a health problem should consult with a medical professional.

Hi Rad,

I too am very interested in this topic. I do hope this thread happens because the material would be invaluable for studying and practicing Evolutionary Astrologers. In terms of the time I can dedicate to it will depend on where the Darwin thread goes. I will definitely be following this thread, but not sure if I could manage both at the same time due to the time required. I will do what I can though if it happens.

Thank you for bringing this back and being open to carrying it forward.

Peace,
Kristin

Post by: JJ on Jun 15, 2013, 08:05 PM
Hi everybody,

I know a bit about this topic as a non-MD licensed medical professional. I will share the knowledge that I have on the topic. The 2-cents I want to add to the discussion regards the practice of medical astrology, not the question of posting on the MB.

Unfortunately when it comes to medicine in the US, if you are diagnosing using western medical language, you have now entered the territory of practicing medicine and you can be sued for practicing medicine without a license. Diagnosing means that you establish a cause or name a condition using medical language, e.g. "you have a condition caused by the erratic functioning of the pancreas," or "you have osteoporosis," or "there is a breakdown of the integrity of the b and t cells." etc.

Licensed medical professionals such as licensed acupuncturists cannot diagnose either unless they are practicing in a state in which they are considered a primary care provider or in which their scope of practice allows for it. They are limited to the language of their profession. In the case of Chinese medicine it would be "liver heat rising" or "spleen qi deficiency", but they can not translate that into a western diagnosis such as hypothyroidism or migraine headaches etc. They have to work with other medical professionals who are licensed to make these kind of diagnoses.

So as medical astrologers it would be okay to say that because Saturn squares Jupiter in this house and this sign, etc you could take this supplement or do this thing. But once you translate into western medical language now you have crossed into the scope of practice of licensed professionals. As someone else already suggested, you could certainly point people in a direction and send them to a practitioner to get a diagnosis to confirm your astrological diagnosis.

Another thing you absolutely cannot do is advise someone to not take prescription medication that they are already taking. That would fall in the realm of "prescribing" even if it is un-prescribing. If you interfere with the prescriptions or instructions given by another medical provider's previous diagnosis, this is also considered to be practicing medicine. What you can do is suggest that something else be done in addition.

The medical profession is governed by torte law, as opposed to contract law, which means that all medical professionals are judged by the standard of practice set by their peers. That is one reason why medicine is sooooo slow to integrate any new understandings or alternative perspectives into practice. Because if you are practicing medicine in a way that is different than the standards set by your peers, you can be liable for malpractice. To suggest that agreements made between doctor and patient somehow legally protects you, is to not understand the law. That would be the case if medicine fell under the domain of contract law, but it doesn't. Sorry to say.

Having said all of this, you do have legal protection to practice medical astrology if you practice in a freedom of healthcare state. These states are Minnesota, California, Rhode Island, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Idaho and New Mexico. In these states people are free to practice any healthcare system, even if it is unlicensed and does not infringe on the scope of practice of other licensed practitioners. There are some general guidelines to follow in these cases:
1. The practitioner must clearly state their scope and duration of training.
2. They must practice within the scope of that training.
3. The client should sign a waiver stating that they understand that the practitioner is an unlicensed professional and they are assuming the risk for following any advice or treatments.
4. The practitioner must not misrepresent themselves and their knowledge in any fashion to try to appear as if they know more than what they have studied in their field.
You can refer to the specific guidelines for each state by doing a search for the freedom of healthcare act in that state and reading the parameters for your state.

I would also suggest looking into the HIPAA regulations which govern privacy in the medical profession and establish a practice that conforms to the guidelines for protecting clients privacy; such as having secure and private files, if you keep documentation of your readings.

I hope this information is helpful. I don't want people to be naive about what they are getting themselves into with practicing medical astrology and then have to potentially risk losing any assets that they may have simply because they made the mistake of saying the wrong thing to the wrong person at the wrong time. When people are grieving, after a death, illness or injury, it is very easy for them to look for someone to blame. And the alternative practitioners are easy targets, if they haven't been vigilant about following the law.

In gratitude and service,
JJ

Hi Rad & all,

Seems we are feeling our way forward, with posts by everyone helping the picture become clearer.

And it seems several at least are keen to learn about EA medical astrology (I definitely am), but that applying the knowledge in real life is a different thing altogether, depending on where one lives and the situation in place there regarding giving medical advice.

So it seems we just need to clarify the legal requirements for disseminating the information (from a USA based server) - there is nothing else we would be doing, simply discussing medical astrology. Unless a real person offers their chart for us to practise on, we would not be actually dispensing medical advice to a person (and even if we were, it may only be a problem if that person is from the USA?).  If there is actually a problem with using a real person, we could just use a chart cast arbitrarily, or use charts based on anonymous birth data. Thus diagnosis may be done using western language, but it wouldn't be a diagnosis of anybody in particular.

And combine this with the disclaimer we've talked about. Ideally the disclaimer would be in the shape of a popup form containing the disclaimer text with an OK (I understand and agree) button, and a Cancel button on the form, OK takes you to the thread, Cancel refuses you entry. That way everyone having access to the thread would have demonstrated an explicit acknowledgement of the disclaimer. Not sure if that could be done using the MB tools? But otherwise the disclaimer could be at the start of the thread, and the bottom of every post perhaps?

Hi All,

Certainly am welcoming all the thoughts/ observations of those who are interested in this potential thread of the EA of medical astrology. We should remember within all that astrology itself has it's own history and tradition of medical astrology for at least a couple thousand years. Mentioning this because of some of the comments from JJ relative to certain states in the USA that allow for this.

The server for this website is located in the USA. I, as the moderator, am not. Our site is certainly international in scope relative to our members being from so many countries other than the USA.

I would welcome other comments from anyone on what we have been discussing, and I am still waiting to see just how many actually want to participate in this thread. If it is to go forwards my thought on doing this thread would be to start very simply with the astrological correlations to anatomy/ physiology, and the chakra system that Wolf taught, correlations relative to the planets, signs, houses.  I certainly don't see any potential legal issues with that at all given that astrology does have it's own lengthy history and tradition concerning this.

From there I would I would begin to discuss aspects to various planets, planets in houses, and signs on houses that will correlate to the interaction / dynamics that occur within the anatomy/ physiology manifesting as specific physical manifestations within the body. Within this what the chakra's actually are,i.e. spinal plexuses,  and how they, of themselves, correlate to the anatomy/ physiology within the body. And, from there, how in combination the chakra system and the traditional western correlations interact and manifest.

I would think, as well, that we could certainly work with projected charts, not the charts of real people, in order to make all of this come alive. With all the disclaimers in place I do not see a problem with the legally speaking from any countries point of view.

So, again, would very much like any additional thoughts / feedback on all of this.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad and all,

I would love to participate in learning more about this topic.

My suggestions are that it isn´t called "Medical Astrology" but something like "The Astrology of Human Anatomy" or "Health Related Astrology".

In addition to the disclaimers, which are a good, essential idea, there could be some guidelines as to how to apply the knowledge to clients, in order to avoid the Astrologer doing any harm to anyone or him/herself. For example: The Astrologer is not intended to replace a doctor and should always suggest the client seeks professional help for his/her condition.

In studying charts it would be a good idea to work with charts of people who are famous or not alive anymore, which had certain illnesses or conditions that are documented. Like that we can work with real cases.

I also very much like the idea of working with the Chakras and Meridians, how the flow of prana/chi effects one´s physical health and how it can be seen thru the lens of Astrology. To find out the why and how, on an energetic/psychological/emotional/spiritual/physical level of any condition.

Thank you for the opportunity!

Hi to all those interested in a astrological/ ea/ medical thread ....

So right now I have as interested Ari, Gonzalo, Kristin, Cat, Sunyata, Skywalker, Wendy, and Upasika. Please let me know if each one of you is still interested.

I have decided we will go forwards with this thread. I really appreciate all of your thoughts including the need to make a disclaimer. I also agree we can use historical charts of famous folks to help illustrate the astrological archetypes that correlate to physiology, anatomy, and the chakra systems.

I am wondering if any of you that want to participate in this thread would be able to make a succinct, yet comprehensive, disclaimer notice that we can post at the very beginning of our thread. Please let me know if you can help.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Gonzalo,

Thanks for creating this disclaimer. Seems to me it covers what we need to cover. I would like the others who want to be part of our EA medical thread to also comment on this disclaimer, and if any of you feel something needs to be added please let us know. JJ, if you read this please let me know your thoughts as well.

God Bless, Rad


Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Upasika on Jun 27, 2013, 04:46 PM
Hi Rad,

Gonzalo's disclaimer seems to be very good to me.
The only thing I coud think of to add would be a footnote that automatically appeared at the bottom of every post, saying ...

"IMPORTANT: Before reading this post, please make sure you have read the disclaimer in the first post of this thread."

I imagine that would be possible for Steve to set up??

In this way if a casual visitor happened in on a post in page 12 (say) of the thread, and this was the first post of the thread they had read, they could hardly claim they didn't know there was a disclaimer regarding the use of the information in the post. This way, any responsibility for a post being taken out of context to the intention of the thread (as it stated in the disclaimer) would be shifted to the reader.

Basically though, the disclaimer says it all and does the job.

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: ari moshe on Jun 27, 2013, 11:10 PM

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Kristin on Jun 28, 2013, 09:00 AM
Hi Rad & all,

Thank you Gonzalo for writing the disclaimer. It feels like we are covered with all the suggestions here. One other topic idea to avoid using the word 'medical' would also be to call it Anatomical Astrology since what we are doing is learning how the body connects to different astrological signatures but maybe it does not matter if we have the disclaimer there. The Health and Medical field is so important to Souls having the human experience so the interest for reading what is uncovered here will be high.

I am also still interested in participating...

Thanks so much Rad,
Kristin

Hi Rad and All,

I am still very interested in this subject.  Right now I seem to either have way too much time on my hands or not enough.  Based on what I see in other threads, it doesn't matter as patience is key on the mb as its quality over quantity so to speak.  So, I am still in.

I was just contemplating the disclaimer issue.  Part of me thinks "wow, are we paranoid or what?" - then another part of me remembers I have some key "naive" symbols in my chart - yes, paranoid is just cautious and cautious is a good thing in this day and age.  (After all - we are not practicing medical astrology, just learning its symbolism - but a disclaimer won't hurt).

I think Gonzalo did a great job!

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Jun 29, 2013, 07:04 AM
Hi All,

Ok, so for our EA medical thread I have down as those who want to participate the following: Skywalker, Ari, Gonzalo, Kristin, Upasika, Katherine, Wendy, Cat, and Sunyata.

What I would like to do is to at first simply teach the EA correlations to anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system. So that means that it will be  mostly all of you reading what I post at this point. Of course all of you are free to ask any questions you would have of me relative to the various correlations.

After that is done then I would like to create hypothetical examples wherein we apply what we have just learned by way of the correlations to the anatomy/ physiology/ and the chakra system to made up charts. For example, what would be a possible manifestation within the physical body of say Pluto in opposition to the Sun. Or the Sun being in the 8th house, and such. Here again all of you could ask me any questions about what is being presented at this point.

Then, lastly, we could then use example of charts of historical figures in which known physical conditions of the body were in fact documented. The chart of Darwin that we have been working with in the planetary method of chart of interpretation would be an example of such a chart. Here we would not be 'practicing' medical astrology but documenting what we have learned to actual historical figures.

Please let me know if all of you agree with this way of doing our EA medical astrology thread.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Group,

Ok, we will begin tomorrow: Tuesday. We will begin with an understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and chakra system correlations of Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House.

God Bless, Rad


Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Jul 02, 2013, 07:35 AM
Hi Group,

So today we will begin with our basic anatomical, physiological, and chakra system correlations with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House.

Below will be all the correlations to these archetypes:

Anatomical:

To the genetic structures of life itself, including humans. Within this to the RNA/DNA can chromosomes.
To the nucleus within all body cells.
To the brain stem with Uranus and Neptune
To the ovaries, uterus, and vagina in women which is co-ruled with the Moon, and the testes and penis  in men which is co-ruled with Mars.
To the anal canal with is co-ruled with Saturn, and in men to the prostrate with is co-ruled with Jupiter.
To the pancreas, the liver which is co-ruled with Jupiter, and the entire intestinal tract.
To the kidney's with Venus being a co-ruler.
To the lymph glands and tonsils which are co-ruled with Neptune.
To the primary brain which is co-ruled with the Moon and Mars.
The endocrine system and all glands which have different co-rulers depending on specific functions of those glands. For example, the pineal gland with is co-ruled with Neptune. The thymus gland with is co-ruled with Neptune. Thyroid gland with is co-ruled with Jupiter, the pituitary gland which is co-ruled with Saturn and Jupiter, the adrenal glands with are co-ruled with Mars and Venus, the parathyroid gland with is co-ruled with Saturn and Jupiter, etc.
To the spinal column which is co-ruled with Saturn
To the arteries which are co-ruled with Mars and Saturn
To the veins which are co-ruled with Mars and Saturn
To the capillaries which is co-ruled with Saturn
To the blood which is co-ruled with Mars and Venus...(blood is classified as a 'connective tissue' which is why it is listed here as anatomical.
To the spleen which is co-ruled with Venus and Neptune
To the duodenum which is co-ruled with Mars
To the gallbladder with co-ruler Jupiter where Jupiter correlates with bile.
To the stomach which is co-ruled with the Moon
To the spleen with is co-ruled with Venus and Neptune
To the esophagus which is co-ruled with Mars
To the breasts with is co-ruled with the Moon

Physiological:

To all enzymes.
To all toxins.
To sperm in men, and ovum in women.
To feces.
To Urine.
To Kundalini.
To Hormones.
To Insulin.
To spinal fluid

Chakras:

The root chakra: it's core which is co-ruled with Saturn, and Uranus.
The naval chakra which is co-ruled with Mars.

These archetyeps also correlate with actions within the physical body called mutations, evolution, the formation of cysts, pimples, cancer, tumors of all kinds, purification, regeneration, diseases and infections, eliminations, secretions, death of the body, and giving birth.

Additionally, Pluto, Scorpio,  and the 8th house correlate to all bacteria, viruses, parasites, and mold. And, most importantly, these archetypes correlate to ALL THE AMINO ACIDS THAT LEAD TO THE CREATION OF PROTEINS.

Again, there are many other detailed correlations of Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House that I can not list here because it would simply to exhaustive, i.e, Pluto correlates to mitochondria. So if you have specific questions about other possible correlations please ask me. Ask me any questions you may have about our general correlations as above.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,
What parts are included in the "primary brain?"

Thank you so much,
God Bless,
Katherine

Hi Katherine,

The two pictures attached show the whole of the primary or hindbrain where the primary brain has the number one on it in the first picture, and the purple color for it in the second picture. For those not familiar with it here is a description of it's function. Our correlations apply to the WHOLE of the primary brain.

"The hindbrain is located toward the rear and lower portion of a person’s brain. It is responsible for controlling a number of important body functions and process, including respiration and heart rate. The brain stem is an important part of the hindbrain, and it controls functions that are critical to life, such as breathing and swallowing. The cerebellum is also located here, playing a role in physical ability.

The brain stem is a structure that connects the brain to the spinal cord. Damage to this structure can be catastrophic, as it controls such things as blood pressure, heartbeat, and swallowing. It is made up of three parts: the medulla, reticular formation, and pons.

The medulla controls how and when a person’s heart beats, as well as his blood pressure, breathing, and even his ability to swallow or cough. This part of a person’s brain stem functions by itself, without relying on the person’s intentions, which is why a person’s heart beats without him making it do so. It’s also the reason people breathe even when they are focused on other things.

The reticular formation is a network of nerves important to a person’s attention or focus, as well as his response to stimuli. This part of the brain helps an individual pay attention to just one important thing, even if he’s faced with several types of stimuli at once. It blocks those less important stimuli, allowing the person to focus. For example, if a person is a potentially dangerous situation, the reticular formation blocks other stimuli, allowing him to focus solely on doing what’s needed to help him survive.

Interestingly, the reticular formation slows down when a person goes to sleep. It does not, however, stop working to block some sensory messages while allowing others through. This area of the brain is the reason many people can stay asleep despite the sounds of passing cars or creaks and groans of a house settling, yet wake to the sound of a smoke detector.

The pons is the part of the hindbrain located above the medulla. It forms a kind of bridge between the medulla and the cerebellum. This structure relays messages between the cerebellum and the cerebrum, which is part of the forebrain. It also helps control movement and plays a role in sleep.

The cerebellum is located to the rear of the brain stem. Its role involves muscle tone and posture, influences motor control, and helps a person to perform smooth, controlled movements. The cerebellum also important in coordinating the movements that people make without thinking or concentrating first, such as walking forward."

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

You mentioned toxins correlation with Pluto. Do 'poisons' correlate with Puto and Neptune, or only Pluto?

And, is there an actual chakra which is called the 'Thymus chakra'? Does it correlate with Neptune?

Thanks so much

Hi Gonzalo,

Yes, poisons correlate with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House. No, there is no chakra called the "Thymus Chakra". The thymus gland, however, will correlate with the throat chakra.

Hi Group,

So here are the correlations to Uranus, the 11th house, and the sign Aquarius.

Anatomy:

The brain in general with specific co-rulers.

The hindbrain or primary brain: Pluto with Uranus
The midbrain: with the Moon
The inner brain: with Venus, Neptune
The left hemisphere: with Mercury
The right hemisphere: with Jupiter
The cortex with Saturn
The frontal lobes and the parietal lobes with are co-ruled with Venus and Neptune
The Occipital lobe with the Moon
The Temporal lobe with Mercury
The brain stem with Neptune and Pluto

Within the brain:

The medulla
The limbic system with Neptune, Moon, and Pluto as general co-rulers
The Amygdala with the Moon, Pluto, and Mercury
The Cingulate gyrus with the Moon
The Fornix with Saturn
The Parahippocampal gyrus with Saturn
The Hypothalamus with the Moon
The Thalamus with Neptune
The Hippocampus
The Basal ganglia with Jupiter
The neurotransmitters with Mercury and Neptune in general with specific correlations like Acetylcholine that is then co-ruled with Mars, GABA which is co-ruled with Saturn, and Serotonin with is co-ruled with Saturn and the Moon.
The synapses
The neurons
The axons
The sacs
The receptors with Venus and Neptune
The sheath that can have myelin within it that is then co-ruled with Saturn.


The neurotransmitters with Mercury and Neptune in general with specific correlations like Acetylcholine that is then co-ruled with Mars, GABA which is co-ruled with Saturn, and Serotonin with is co-ruled with Saturn and the Moon.

The types of neurotransmitters also correlate with specific physiological substances which are:

Dopamine, Serotonin,  Gaba, and Acetylcholoine.

Additional anatomical correlations:

The entire central Nervous system with co-ruler Mercury.
The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems with co-rulers the Moon and Mercury.
The sheathing on the various nerves throughout the body that is co-ruled with Saturn
The Lungs and bronchial tubes
To the trachea which is co-ruled with Saturn
To the structure of the nose which is co-ruled with Saturn and Venus

The chakra system:

The mid layer of the root chakra which has the co-rulers of Saturn which is the outer layer, and Pluto which is the core.

With the co-ruler Mercury it correlates with the very nature of thought: thinking. As a result it correlates with the 'messaging' taking place within the entire physical body that is ultimately traceable to the various areas within the brain itself.

Uranus also correlates with what are called 'free radicals', strokes, dehydration, stress and tension, and the full spectrum of neurological disorders. It also correlates to the physical action of 'bursting' when an existing restriction within the body has reached an extreme that then triggers this bursting action.

If you have any questions please ask them of me.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

The detail within Uranus correlations in the anatomy is incredible.

Hope it is ok to share this ..was just amazed when I was reading through the Uranus post you made. My Mom has Parkinsons Disease and you shared that Uranus rules the mid brain with the Moon.  Uranus also correlates to the neurotransmitter Dopamine. Parkinsons is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease result from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the region of the midbrain.

Her natal Uranus is in Aries in the 7th and inconjuncts her Moon in Scorpio in the 2nd, and it is exact, reflecting this imbalance. Also her Pluto in Cancer in the 10th, which is ruled by that Moon and Pluto squares her Uranus in Aries.

Her disease was diagnosed when Pluto in Cap first squared Uranus in Aries in 2011. Amazing in that she was born when Pluto in Cancer was squaring Uranus in Aries and her disease manifested when Pluto was in Cap squaring Aries on the other side.

***

Rad, I have a couple questions.

As I understand things, a great many of diseases are rooted in emotional unrest or emotional repression and this energy then manifesting in physical symptoms. Is this an accurate way to understand this?

I realize there will be Soul's with genetic pre-dispositions making them more susceptible to different conditions but then would a way to understand the emotional piece be that it would dictate the degree of the manifestation or perhaps the onset occurring earlier with higher degrees of repression and/or stress?


Thank you for your invaluable wisdom on the subject.

Peace,
Kristin

Hi Rad,

Thank you so much for this excellent information.  I am wondering about any co-ruler correlations for the vagus nerve, a cranial nerve running from the medulla down into the organ systems.  The "tone" of this nerve has been implicated in a lot of trauma recovery and response, as well as overall emotional regulation and specifically with the capacity to move out of primitive states of mind into more evolved states of mind.   The nerve specifically has two parts:   

"Dorsal vagal complex: The dorsal branch of the vagus originates in the dorsal motor nucleus and is considered the phylogenetically older branch.  This branch is unmyelinated and exists in most vertebrates. This branch is also known as the “vegetative vagus” because it is associated with primal survival strategies of primitive vertebrates, reptiles, and amphibians.  Under great stress, these animals freeze when threatened, conserving their metabolic resources."

"Ventral vagal complex: With increased neural complexity seen in mammals (due to phylogenetic development) evolved a more sophisticated system to enrich behavioral and affective responses to an increasingly complex environment.[1] The ventral branch of the vagus originates in the nucleus ambiguus and is myelinated to provide more control and speed in responding. This branch is also known as the “smart vagus” because it is associated with the regulation of sympathetic “fight or flight” behaviors in the service of social affiliative behaviors. These behaviors include social communication and self-soothing and calming. In other words, this branch of the vagus can inhibit or disinhibit defensive limbic circuits, depending on the situation. The VVC provides primary control of supradiaphragmatic visceral organs, such as the esophagus, bronchi, pharynx, and larynx. The VVC also exerts important influence on the heart."

These are excerpts from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyvagal_Theory

Thank you so much Rad and God bless,

Jason

**********

The Moon, Pluto, AND Neptune

************

- Umbilical cord

*************

Membranes are thin layers of tissue that provide a surface lining or protective surface to organs or body structures. There are four types of membranes. They are:

    Cutaneous: pertaining to the skin which correlates with Saturn.

    Mucous: the lubricating membrane lining an internal surface or organ. An example of mucous membrane would be the gums which correlate with the Moon and Pluto.

    Serous: thin membranes that line cavities that secrete serous fluid. An example would be the peritoneum which correlates with Pluto and the Moon.

    Synovial: dense connective tissue membrane that secretes synovial fluid which correlates with Pluto and Saturn.

Post by: Rad on Jul 12, 2013, 07:16 AM
Hi Group,

Given the questions from Gonzalo I thought this might be the right moment to discuss and correlate what the various tissues are within the body.

The Various Tissues Of The Human Body

A layer or group of cells that collectively perform a specific function forms tissues. These are the main types of tissues found in the human body and their functions.

Tissues are composed of groups or layers of cells, which collectively perform a specific function. Different types of tissues have different structures that are specific to their function. Tissues can be held together by a sticky coating called an ‘extracellular matrix’ or the matrix may weave the cells of tissues together. The Latin word for tissue is derived from the verb texere, “to weave”.

These are the major tissue types in the human body:

    Connective
    Epithelial
    Muscular
    Nervous system
    Lymphatic

Connective Tissue

Connective tissue is made up of cells and protein fibers and provides support for other body tissues. The main proteins in connective tissue are collagen and elastin. There are five types of connective tissue. They are:

    Loose connective tissue: including adipose tissue (fat storage) which correlates with the Moon and Pluto
    Dense connective tissue which correlates with Pluto
    Blood which correlates with Mars, Venus and Pluto
    Bone which correlates with Pluto and Saturn
    Cartilage which correlates with Pluto and Saturn

Epithelial Tissue

Epithelial tissue, often called epithelium, is comprised of tightly packed cells, arranged to form layers. Epithelium provides many functions, including absorption, excretion, protection, reproduction, secretion and sensory reception.

Epithelial cells are constantly renewing and replacing the dead or inactive cells. The two main epithelial tissue types are:

    Glandular: found in exocrine and endocrine glands which correlates with Pluto
    Lining epithelium: forms the outer layer of the skin and in some internal organs which correlates with Pluto and Saturn

Muscular Tissue

Muscle tissue provides stability to the skeleton and internal organs and allows body movement. Muscle tissue makes up approximately 60% of the body’s mass and there are three types of muscle tissue. These are:

    Cardiac: found in the heart with correlates with the Sun, Mars, and Pluto
    Skeletal: usually attached to bone which correlates with Pluto, Mars, and Saturn
    Smooth: found in walls of blood vessels in digestive system, respiratory system and the eye which correlates with Pluto, Uranus, and the Moon respectively.

Nervous System Tissue

The nervous system is made up of the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). Comprised of neural and nervous tissue, the CNS and PNS transmit signals from the brain to the body parts (muscles, glands, sense organs) to activate a response which correlates with Uranus, Mercury, and Pluto

Lymphatic Tissue

Lymphatic, or lymphoid tissue is found at the entrance of the digestive system, respiratory system and urogenital tracts. The lymphoid tissue provides protection as a first line of defense for these areas which correlates with Neptune and Pluto.

If you have any questions please ask me. We will continue on with Saturn's correlations with the anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system at the top of next week: Monday.

God Bless, Rad


Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Jul 15, 2013, 08:08 AM
Hi All,

So we will continue now with our correlations of Saturn, Capricorn, and the 10th house to anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system.

Additionally Saturn correlates with the aging of the body, to deposits of various kinds, to crystallization of various kinds, to atrophy, to arthritis, to decay, restrictions of various kinds within the body, and the overall structural integrity of the whole of the physical body.

If you have any questions please ask them.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

Thank you

Hi Skywalker,

Uranus, as does the 11th house and Aquarius, to dehydration because of the 'evaporation' of fluids that can be caused by acute stress that itself can have many causes where stress itself correlates to these archetypes.

Since hair is essentially a fibrous protein called alpha keratin this will then correlate with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th house because of these archetypes correlations with the proteins that are produced by the various amino acids.

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Jul 18, 2013, 09:06 AM
Hi All,

Our next step are the anatomical, physiological, and chakra system correlations with Jupiter, Sagittarius, and the 9th House.

Anatomical:

To the pituitary gland with the co-ruler Saturn and Pluto
To the parathyroid gland with is co-ruled with and Pluto and Saturn
To the Basal ganglia with Uranus
To the right hemisphere in the brain
To the liver with the co-ruler Pluto
To the thyroid gland with co-ruler Pluto
To the sciatic nerves with co-ruler Uranus and Mercury

Physiological:

To the hormones of the liver which are Angiotensinogen, Thrombopoietin, Hepcidin, and Betatrophin
To the hormones of the thyroid which are T4 (thyroxine), T3 (tri-iodothyronine or liothyronine), T2 (di-iodothyronine), and T1 (mono-iodothyronine) – and these regulate all the processes of energy release within the body’s cells.
To the hormones of the pituitary which is co-ruled with Saturn and Pluto in general are:

Anterior Pituitary:

 Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone (ACTH) with co-ruler Venus
 Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
 Luteinising hormone (LH)
 Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) with co-ruler Moon
 Prolactin (PRL)
 Growth hormone (GH)
 Melanocyte-Stimulating Hormone (MSH)

Posterior Pituitary:

Anti-diuretic Hormone (ADH)  with co-ruler Moon
Oxytocin with co-ruler Neptune

And to the hormone secreted from the parathyroid with is PTH

The liver also naturally produces cholesterol and bile.

The Chakra's:

To the sacral chakra with co-ruler Neptune.

Additionally Jupiter correlates with the essential co-ordination of the entire body, and the the metabolism of all nutrients that are put into the body. Because of it's correlation to growth hormones this can also then lead to out of control growth of anything in the body that then creates it's own physical issues and symptoms.

If you have any questions please ask:

My question is, is this also the correlation for co-ordination of body movement? And also, what are the correlations for the 'corporal scheme', and for the 'body image'? Are these Jupiter/Mercury correlations, or just Jupiter, or Mercury, or do they involve the Moon? ... Famous pianist Glenn Gould had South Node Virgo 3rd House, North Node 9th House Pisces, with Neptune/Jupiter Virgo conjunct South Node, ruled by Mercury 4th House ... he used a technique to develop his abilities by playing the piano in his mind .. ie. imagining the movement of the body .. so, given that Mercury thought forms are directly linked with what the physical body can do, ie, the immediate environment, such technique seems based on Mercury, however, the coordination and integration functions are Jupiter correlations .. other example is Moshe Feldenkrais, whose method is based on exercises which are done on one side of the body, and then imagined for the other side of the body ... his Nodal axis was Pisces/Virgo, and had Pluto in Gemini opposed by Uranus in Sagittarius, both squaring the nodes

Hi All,

Before we move on to our next anatomical, physiological, and chakra system correlations I thought it would be good to post now on all the EA astrological correlations to the various hormones that emanate from glands within the endocrine glands in the body. Again, the endocrine system, in general, correlates with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House. Below is a list of the endocrine systems specific glands, the hormones that secrete, and the EA correlations to them.


The endocrine system and the hormones they secrete:

1.    Hypothalamus
2.    Pituitary
3.    Pineal
4.    Thyroid
5.    Para-thyroid
6.    Adrenal
7.    Thymus
8.    Pancreas (partly gland, partly organ)
9.    Gonads (ovaries and testes)

The hypothalamus: Uranus, Moon, and Neptune

The hypothalamus is part of the brain that lies just above the pituitary gland. It releases hormones that start and stop the release of pituitary hormones. The hypothalamus controls hormone production in the pituitary gland through several "releasing" hormones. These include:

    Growth hormone-releasing hormone, or GHRH (controls GH release): Jupiter
    Tyrotropin-releasing hormone, or TRH (controls TSH release): Jupiter
    Corticoptropin-releasing hormone, or CRH (controls ACTH release): Venus

Another hormone made by the hypothalamus is gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). It tells the pituitary gland to make luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which are important for normal puberty and reproduction: Pluto

The Pituitary: Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter

    Prolactin: stimulates milk production from a woman's breasts after childbirth. In pregnant and breastfeeding women, prolactin helps prevent ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovaries): Moon

    Growth hormone (GH): GH stimulates growth in childhood and is important for maintaining a healthy body composition. In adults it is also important for maintaining muscle mass and bone mass. GH also affects fat distribution in the body: Jupiter

    Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH): ACTH stimulates production of cortisol by the adrenal glands. Cortisol, a so-called "stress hormone," is vital to survival. It helps maintain blood pressure and blood glucose levels, among other effects: Venus

    Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH): TSH stimulates the thyroid gland to make thyroid hormones, which, in turn, control (regulate) the body's metabolism, energy, growth and development, and nervous system activity: Jupiter

    Luteinizing hormone (LH): LH regulates testosterone in men and estrogen in women: Pluto and Mars

    Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH): FSH stimulates the ovaries to release eggs (ovulate) in women: Pluto and the Moon

    LH and FSH work together to allow normal function of the ovaries or testes, including sperm production.

The posterior pituitary (back part of the pituitary) produces two hormones:

    Oxytocin: Oxytocin causes milk to be released in nursing mothers and contractions during childbirth: Moon

    Antidiuretic hormone (ADH): ADH, also called vasopressin, regulates water balance. If ADH is not secreted in the right amount, this can lead to too much or too little sodium (salt) and water in the bloodstream: Neptune

The pineal: Pluto and Neptune

Melatonin and serotonin which is a precursor for melatonin: Neptune

Thyroid: Jupiter and Pluto

The thyroid produces two hormones, T3 (called tri-iodothyronine) and T4 (called thyroxine): Jupiter

Parathyroid: Saturn, Jupiter, and Pluto

PTH: Saturn

The adrenals: Pluto, Mars, and Venus

The adrenal glands consist of two parts, the cortex or outer portion and the medulla, the inner portion.

The adrenal cortex (the outer portion) releases:

1.    Corticosteroid hormones:
a.    Hydrocortisone hormones, also known as cortisol, controls the body’s use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates: Venus

b.    Corticosterone which, together with cortisol, suppresses inflammatory reactions in the body and also has an effect on the immune system: Venus

2.    Aldosterone hormone which inhibits the level of sodium excreted into the urine, maintaining blood volume and blood pressure: Saturn

3.    Androgenic steroids (androgen hormones) which have a minimal effect on the development of male characteristics: Saturn

4.    Dehydroepiandrosterone: The main function of DHEA in our body is to work as a precursor for men and womens sex hormones which are described as androgen and estrogen: Pluto

5.    Pregnenolone is the precursor hormone from which stress hormones are made, making its presence in your body significant: Mars

The adrenal medulla (the inner portion of the adrenals) releases:

1.    Epinephrine (also called adrenaline) increases the heart rate and force of the heart contractions, facilitates blood flow to the muscles and brain,  causes relaxation of smooth muscles, helps with conversion of   glycogen to glucose in the liver – plus other activities: Mars

2.    Norepinephrine (also called noradrenaline) has strong vasoconstrictive (vaso = blood vessel and constrictive = constriction). effects, thus increasing blood pressure: Saturn

Thymus: Neptune and Pluto

       Humoral factors: Neptune

Pancreas: Pluto

       Insulin and glucagon: Pluto

Testes: Pluto and Mars

       Testosterone: Pluto and Mars

Ovaries: Pluto and Moon

        Estrogen: Pluto and Venus

Progesterone. Pluto and Mars

If you have any questions please ask.

God Bless, Rad

Hi All,

We will now continue on with our correlations in anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system involving Venus, Libra, Taurus and the 2nd and 7th Houses.

Anatomy:

Tongue
Kidneys with Pluto and Neptune
White blood cells
Spleen with Pluto and Neptune
The adrenal glands with are co-ruled with Mars and Pluto
The inner brain with Neptune and Uranus
The frontal lobes and the parietal lobes with are co-ruled with Uranus and Neptune
The receptors in the brain with with Uranus and Neptune
Receptor cells throughout the body
The nose with Saturn

Physiology:

Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone (ACTH) with co-ruler Jupiter
Corticoptropin-releasing hormone, or CRH (controls ACTH release) with Jupiter
Hydrocortisone hormones, also known as cortisol, controls the body’s use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates
Corticosterone which, together with cortisol, suppresses inflammatory reactions in the body and also has an effect on the immune system with Saturn
Estrogen: with Pluto

The Chakra's:

The heart chakra

Additionally, Venus, Libra, Taurus, and the 2nd and 7th Houses correlate to all the various ‘senses’, 'sensing’ within the body which are co-ruled with Neptune and Pluto. These also correlate with extremes that can exist in the body that then need to be balanced as a result: thus the sense of balance with the body. These also correlate with the psychology of hearing: how we hear.

If you have any questions please ask them of me.

Hi All,

We will now correlate the anatomy and chakra system correlations to Mercury, Gemini/Virgo, and the 3rd and Sixth Houses.

Anatomy:

The anatomy of the ear
The left hemisphere: with Uranus
The Temporal lobe with Uranus
The Amygdala with the Moon, Pluto, and Uranus
The neurotransmitters with Uranus and Neptune
The entire central Nervous system with co-ruler Uranus.
The motor nerves
The sympathetic and parasympathetic systems with co-rulers the Moon and Uranus.
With the co-ruler Uranus it correlates with the very nature of thought: thinking. As a result it correlates with the 'messaging' taking place within the entire physical body that is ultimately traceable to the various areas within the brain itself.
The nervous system is made up of the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS). Comprised of neural and nervous tissue, the CNS and PNS transmit signals from the brain to the body parts (muscles, glands, sense organs) to activate a response which correlates with co-rulers Uranus and Pluto
To the sciatic nerves with co-ruler Uranus and Jupiter
To the arms and hands

Chakra: The throat

Additionally, Mercury with Uranus correlates to all the transmissions within the body that all involve the body communicating with itself. Additionally, this correlates with all the external transmissions that come into the body the impacts on how the body reacts to those transmissions. In combination these then correlate to how the body, and the Soul within it, transmits or communicates itself to others specifically, and the overall environment generally.

If you have any questions please ask.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad

I have a question about the Mercury correlations. Jeffrey mentioned in Pluto I that the transit of Pluto through the 6th House can correlate with developing genetic conditions or ailments that are latent or dormant. Does Mercury correlate with the coding/decoding of the DNA/RNA (Pluto)?

Other related, more general question is whether the evolution of the Soul in any lifetime actually 'activates' genetic information or Soul potential which is contained or coded within the DNA, at key periods of the life. Or is it a symbol?

Thank you so much
God Bless,
Gonzalo

**********

No, the actual coding of the RNA/DNA is Pluto itself whereas the decoding, and I am assuming you mean the messages or messaging of that RNA/DNA, would be Mercury.

*************

The 'activated" genetic information that correlates with Pluto contains within it the evolutionary intentions of the Soul itself.

Hi All,

Here are the few correlations to anatomy, physiology, and the chakra with the Sun, Leo, and the 5th House.

Anatomy:

The heartheart as an organ with co ruler mars because of the cardiac muscle tissue that it is composed of.

The cardiovascular system: circulation of the blood

Chakra: With the 3rd eye or ajna which is co-ruled with the Moon and Pluto. The ajna chakra is actually linked to the medulla and the crown chakra to form a natural triangle. When a Soul is able to open this ajna chakra it then begins to perceive the inner cosmos, the very nature of Creation including the creation of itself and all others. This perception within the ajna is projected by way of the medulla wherin lies the seat of the Soul itself, and the ego, Moon, that it creates in each life. As the progressive perception within the ajna of the inner cosmos, of that which has created All Things, a natural shift in the very gravity of consciousness occurs: from the ego to the Soul itself. As this evolves this then ignites the crown chakra itself which is ruled by Neptune.

Additionally, the Sun, Leo, and the 5th House correlate to the overall vitality of the body, and directly correlates to the temperature of the body.

If you have any questions please ask them.

God Bless, Rad

Hi, Skywalker, Ari, Gonzalo, Kristin, Upasika, Katherine, Wendy, Cat,  Sunyata, and anyone else who wishes to join us.

So we have now completed our correlations in anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system with the houses, sign, and the planets. Our next step is to create hypothetical examples wherein we apply what we have just learned by way of the correlations to the anatomy/ physiology/ and the chakra system to made up charts. For example, what would be a possible manifestation within the physical body of say Pluto in opposition to the Sun. Or the Sun being in the 8th house, and such. Here again all of you could ask me any questions about what is being presented at this point.

So I need to know if all of you are still planning, or desiring, to move into this next step. Please let me know.

Hi Rad and all,

I´m looking forward to progress too! Would like to ask what chakra/anatomy/physiology correlates with Chiron.

Since the Sun correlates to vitality and blood circulation does it also correlate to Prana/Chi?

Rad, may I ask if you know what causes migraines? I just spoke to my father who has had them all his life and he said that doctors do not totally understand their causes. From my observations, the Sun in Virgo is quite prone to getting migraines and it seems to be a reaction to stress, when they get overwhelmed by it. It looks like the body finds an excuse to avoid dealing with whatever is causing the psychological/emotional stress.

Thanks a lot!

It looks like the body finds an excuse to avoid dealing with whatever is causing the psychological/emotional stress.

**********

In my opinion these are caused, anatomically and physiologically speaking, first by compressed adrenal glands, caused by excessive stress on one kind or the other, that then causes a great imbalance of the adrenaline and cortisone that is secreted by them. In turn this infuses the blood stream which then causes compression within the medulla area of the brain that then affects the chemical messages emanating from the hypothalamus that is regulating all the instinctual functions of the body.  This will then cause the fatty linings within the nervous system to progressively break down that then impacts on how the electrical wiring, dendrites, synapses, neurons, receptor cells, etc, function. In turn this then affects the neurotransmitters that, when all of this is combined, create migraine headaches.

I have found working with such clients that the first order of business to heal this is to restore proper circulation of the blood system, the cardiovascular system, which starts by re-balancing the adrenal glands. Thus, good natural remedies that will do this start with pantothenic acid, niacin, a quality complex b vitamin, and magnesium. Hot bath infused with epsom salts, a deep tissue massage as in Swedish type massages, and very deep regulated breathing over a period of time will all help.

Hi Rad,
YES!! Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and wisdom—this information is invaluable.

I’ve been looking at some recent developments with regard to my own health... which prompts these questions related to the senses and, to pain… 

I think I understand the symbolism in the Mercury/ Uranus dichotomy, in terms of anatomy and physiology. Can you speak more about the nature of pain? To Venus and Neptune and how (why) they relate to sensing? 

Is there any further breakdown or (co)rulership within the Sensory Receptors?

What would be some factors for determining the root of an ailment in situations where there are issues on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels? (e.g. Depression tends to be comorbid with chronic pain.)  Being able to see in a chart whether a physical symptom (headache, nausea) is a product of psychogenic pain vs. nutritional imbalance, etc.

P.S. Here is a condensed list of the material covered, for those just jumping in or needing a refresher...

Quote
Nervous System Tissue
The nervous system is made up of the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS).

********

The nature of pain is to inform the brain to take action relative to what the specific type of pain is in order to take necessary remedial  action before a cataclysmic situation is reached.

**********

To Venus and Neptune and how (why) they relate to sensing? 

***********

These planets, the signs the rule, and the houses they correlate too sensing as a general physiological and anatomical response to the inner and outer environments that provide essential information to the brain. Why ? Because astrology is a natural science which means a science of correlation and observation versus theory or hypothesis. Thus, through direct observation and correlations over a great length of time of the human being these correlations to these planets, etc, have been observed.

***********

Is there any further breakdown or (co)rulership within the Sensory Receptors?

*******

Here are the further correlations you have asked about: 

Chemoreceptors: Pluto, Venus, Uranus
Thermoreceptors: Venus, Uranus, Sun
Photoreceptors: Venus , Moon, Neptune: higher octave of Venus
Nociceptors : Venus and Pluto
Mechanreceptors: Venus
o   Merkel’s disks: Venus and Mercury/Uranus
o   Pacinian Corpuscles Venus and Pluto
o   Messiners Coruscles: Venus and Saturn
o   Ruffini’s End Organs: Venus and Uranus

o   Proprioceptors: Venus and Jupiter

*********

EA is able to determine the 'why' of just about anything. Thus, specific symptoms all have their own causes. EA is able to determine, in almost all cases, the cause of anything. Each case, Soul, is unique. This is why it is essential to have a firm grasp and understanding of the core principles, methodology, of EA so that the why or cause of whatever condition can be understood. So to understand the root of any ailment it is essential to understand EA itself. This very thread on medical astrology will hopefully help all of us towards this end.

**********

Did Wolf speak of suffering?

******

Yes, of course, but always in the context of 'why' any given Soul has created the conditions for it's life so that all Souls can take responsibility for that which, in fact, they have created for themselves. Understanding the causes, the why's of anything, equals self knowledge. When this is then known to a Soul it is then up to them to do what is necessary to make the changes that can lead them in new evolutionary directions that can hopefully eliminate the conditions that have created whatever types of pain they have.

Of course many Souls have created conditions in which the pain they have, the nature of it, can not be alleviated at all and/or can only be modified to some extent. The reasons for this, the why, is unique to each Soul. EA can help uncover whatever those unique reasons are for any given Soul.



God Bless, Rad

Hi Ari, Gonzalo, Skywalker, Linda, Upasika, Kristin, Katherine, Cat, and Sunyata....

Ok, we will now begin our second stage of our medical thread. And we will start very, very simply and progressively build upon this simple beginning to understand in a more holistic way the medical signatures in any given chart.

At first we must realize that all the various astrological symbols, i.e. Mars, Cancer, the 4th House etc, correlate to all the various anatomical, physiological, and chakra system that we have now learned that symbolize the potential for medical issues in each of the archetypes. In other words, when we analyze any given symbol, from a medical point of view, the potential exists to have medical issues in those symbols versus some absolute manifestation of a medical issue in those symbols.

So as we develop this next step we will use that perspective of potential versus an absolutist one. We will also learn, along the way, that given the potential in any given astrological symbol how transits and progressions can correlate to the manifestation of that potential at those times. Of course we will also try to understand the inherent genetics, Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House, of any given symbol in such a way as to consider how any given Soul can literally be born with medical issues.

So as we now develop this next step in our medical thread we will start very simply as in considering the medical potential of two planets. From there we will take those same two planets and connect to signs, and then, from there to houses. As we progress further on we will then begin to add other planets to in a building block approach to our medical understanding that will lead to looking at an entire birth chart.

So as we begin examining two planets at first it will simply be a matter of each of referring to the anatomical, physiological, and chakra system correlations of those two planets. This will then comprise what you send in to me in this thread.

We should also understand that the nature of aspects between planets correlate to the relative probability of having medical issues connected to those planets. In other words, two planets in opposition versus those same two planets in a trine will correlate to an increased probability of having medical issues between those two planets. The aspects also correlate to the potential degree of how severe any given medical issue is between two planets. Again, a trine between two planets not only has a decreased probability of medical issues but also, if they did manifest, a less sever manifestation of them versus those two planets being in an opposition for example.

So to begin very simply let us consider the potential medical issues of a Mars in opposition to Uranus in a male body. When all of you have submitted your analysis to me, and all questions asked and answered that may be asked of me, we will then move on to other examples.

If you have any questions please ask them of me now.

God Bless, Rad

Post by: Katherine on Aug 23, 2013, 06:07 AM
Hi Rad, all,
I’m guessing that this would be a volatile signature (I visualized a strap fight. A strap fight involves two people who are bound together by a length of rope, chain, or a belt. Forced engagement -with zero chance of escape- is the objective. Forced opposition—a dynamic stasis) with both Uranus and Mars relating to Yang and Pranic energies engaged through a cardinal association.
Both symbols, archetypically, have a stressful/ caustic nature, manifesting the instincts for separation and freedom in different ways. Visually, I think it’s an interesting tension with Uranus correlating to Kundalini/ root chakra energy concurrently with trauma, disassociation, and vacating. Mars registers to the navel/ solar plexus chakra, conversely, linking to violence, sex, and procreation.  (I visualized a lemniscate)
Air*Uranus (fire*opposition) Fire*Mars as experienced by the human body, to me, would indicate the long-term situation of nervous system burnout via exhaustion. (Flame continuously stoked) Stress moves in a perpetual feedback loop affecting all levels experienced i.e. physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually? Chronic stress flattens into fatigue, which can lead to frustration, and then anger. This lack of perspective tends to project upon others creating defensiveness and hyper-vigilance, possibly attracting antagonistic, hostile, or violent situations. Further, REM sleep is disturbed, compounding all experiences.
Constant, unrelenting stress… could indicate Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. (I think of PTSD as event/ environmentally oriented—it has a definite beginning. So to me this would come through following a traumatic event in the present life (via transit/ progression) or, if from events in a previous life (indicated by the position of Pluto/ S. Node) I think it is certainly a possibility but, looking at the difference, I am favoring CFS because of the broad scope and that the etiology (origin/ causation) is unclear. (‘When no etiology can be ascertained, the disorder is said to be idiopathic’ i.e. ‘arising spontaneously or from an obscure or unknown cause’) Also, PTSD tends to be a catchall for stress disorders that have manifested into human behavior. Similar to how fibromyalgia is diagnosed in cases where symptoms don’t paint a clear picture or the causes are unclear.

Potential for other bursting-Uranus, fast, intense, and painful-Mars/Pluto cataclysmic experiences such as aneurism, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, etc. (From recent experiences… I think these events are born not from a simple birth signature, but a perfect storm of natal, transit, progression and also environmental context/ lifestyle owing much to level of consciousness, self-awareness, and self-care) Another possibility, looking at the anatomical and physiological attributes of each, could create the event of a stroke. Caused by ischemia- leaning toward Uranus Caused by hemorrhage- leaning toward Mars. (I’ve just seen epilepsy in a natal chart as a Uranus-Mars crescent square and, a seizure by way of a Mars transit: opposing natal Mars, squaring natal Uranus—among other things.)  
In a male form there could be a challenge to integrate oscillating extremes with regard to sexual desire fueled by intense endocrine rhythms e.g. testosterone/ adrenaline. Objectification, vacating, withdrawal (Uranus) then the acute need to act on primal, imperative, desires (Mars) (Perhaps other signatures could flavor this experience i.e. Saturn- guilt/ shame, Jupiter- justification/ glamour?)  I just have a general sense of a drive to engage physically but, an inconsistency (lack/abundance, up/down) of energy to deliver.


Correlations
Blood/Veins/Arteries: I looked into the conductivity of blood to see if there was a link to alkalinity. Conductivity increases as ionic (TDS) presence increases. A basic case for hydration! Vericosity, Varicocele
Breath/Lungs/Trachea: as CO2 increases, acidity increases which, lead to a host of physical maladies (Bohr effect) e.g. acidosis, hyperviscosity, and hypercoaguability → thrombophilia, thrombosis (clot) (O2 intake effects pH more than diet) dry/ dehydrated, asthma, hyperventilation
GI/Duodenum/Esophagus-Mars dry/ dehydrated, easily irritated, acid reflux, ulcers, Chrohn’s
Endocrine: Imbalances of adrenaline, testosterone, cortisol (Cushings), and acetylcholine (Alzheimer’s) all can interfere with REM sleep, DHEA, androgen (a strong Pluto or Neptune aspect might pull this into a condition of intersex)
Sex/ Sex organs: dynamic libido, appear virile though may have imbalances that prevent ‘performance.’ compromised sperm count, oligozoospermia

Remedial efforts... (Serious avoidance of stimulants, alcohol, excitotoxins, and neurotoxins) consistant REM sleep, pure water, calming smells- sage, alkalizing foods, herbs- mucilages and flavinoids. Since the Uranus-Mars opposition is so dynamic (and potentially combative) routine pranayama and asana. Sitting in a position that opens and grounds the root chakra (perineum/ CV1) Breathing with eyes closed (quieting/ non-threatening sensory depravation) that is full and engages the diaphragm, massaging the viscera (Anapanasati- observing the sensation of the breath (Uranus) through the nostrils—balancing the nadis (left-inertia; right-action) This opening of the lungs aides ‘CO2 disposal, preventing ammonia, ketones and aromatic amines from building up to toxic levels’ Increases circulation without exertion. Asanas that put the pelvis in line or above the heart and brain without exertion such as uttanasana, virasana, prasarita padottanasana, and savasana.


So very grateful for this opportunity to practice!
God Bless,
Katherine

Hi Rad and All,

The first thing that popped into my head is stress.  Uranus correlates to the brain, Mars to the adrenals so on and so forth.  I was thinking about the "flight or fight" response but then thought about cortisol.  Cortisol is produced by the adrenal gland and secreted during a stress response.  Looking back through the material, I see that cortisol, as well as hormones, are ruled by Libra, Taurus, Venus etc.  Being we are focusing on Mars opp Uranus and nothing else, does this rule stress out since the signatures that correlate to cortisol are not included at this point and cortisol is a major stress hormone? 

Thanks

Hi Cat,

First, hormones, in general, correlate with Scorpio, Pluto, and the 8th House. Venus correlates as a co-ruler with Pluto to cortisol. The adrenals also secrete the hormones Epinephrine ( adrenaline ) which correlates to Mars with the co-ruler Pluto and  Norepinephrine which correlate with Saturn and Pluto. Thus the 'flight or fight' as you put it. Stress, whatever the causes may be, disrupts the equilibrium, balance, between these hormones. Thus, in the signature that we are looking into, Mars in opposition to Uranus, stress then can cause extreme imbalances of these hormones relate to the adrenals.  This then creates a high degree of adrenal stress that can lead to adrenal fatigue, or outright collapse of the adrenals. When that takes place a variety of other medical conditions can then take place.

God Bless, Rad

Energetic imbalance between middle layer of Root chakra corresponding to one´s individuating function, and the Navel chakra which corresponds to one´s personal will power. The imbalance is shown by the opposition aspect and will correlate to stress between these two dynamics.

As Mars is instinctive and Uranus unpredictable, this is a very volatile person who can become angry/irritable in a split second, with no apparent warning and with the potential for an uncontrollable temper. This can lead to high levels of psychological, emotional and physical stress. Stress as we know can cause all sorts of medical conditions and dis-eases.

Some potential conditions that can manifest with this planetary combination are: 
 
High levels of adrenaline as a result of stress, effecting heart rate. Heart attack due to the contracting of the arteries and muscle tissues and/or thickening of the blood. Aneurism due to the bursting of a vein in the brain. Pulmonary embolism due to clotting of the blood. Varicose veins due to dehydration. Over sensitized nervous system which can lead to shaking, over sensitivity to pain and electricity or other stimulus including sexual stimulus which leads to over excitement and pre-mature ejaculation, tense muscles that contract and don´t let blood flow properly to them, muscular spasms, headaches and a highly nervous and reactive individual all round.

Other potential conditions:

Irregular breathing which can lead to fatigue due to lack of oxygen.

Possible brain damage from birth.
 
Erratic physical movements.

Hormonal imbalances in the adrenal glands due to irregular sexual desires, stress, anger, anxiety, which can lead to peaks/bursts of energy or a lack of energy and fatigue.

Hormonal imbalances in the hypothalamus which can effect testosterone production and metabolic rate, leading to chronic fatigue amongst other conditions.


My anatomical and physiological knowledge is limited but will improve. Thank you for the opportunity!

Hi Rad and Group,

I realize the list of possibilities is long with this signature and it is also relative depending on the Soul's choices (Mars), stage of evolution as well as other signatures in the chart but here are some potential possibilities.

Mars Oppose Uranus in a male body

This Soul would not have most likely come into this life with unresolved trauma. Trauma is linked with Uranus and the opposition to Mars reflects being born with some form of PTSD.  There may be events that would have created potentially more trauma, resulting in the THE INABILITY TO EVER REALLY RELAX for they may always be wondering or worrying when the next shoe will drop because of experiencing prior unexpected traumas that may have caught them by surprise. The accumulated stress over time also due to the PTSD would cause the whole system to be in a constant state of tension. This kind of pressure and tension would increase the stress on the heart and the entire blood (Mars) stream, causing potential for heart attack or in extreme cases a brain Aneurysm which occurs where there is a weak area in the wall of an artery that supplies blood to the brain causing a stroke. “The most common location for brain aneurysms is in the network of blood vessels at the base of the brain called the circle of Willis.”


The elevated stress on the body due to an over active nervous system can effect all of the organs over time, especially the heart organ and the blood vessels as they as a result will have to be working harder to keep up with the pace of the potential higher blood pressure and heart rate that can accompany PTSD. A red blood cell's (Mars) main function is carrying oxygen in the blood to various cells in the body, it uses a protein called hemoglobin for that purpose, where it picks up oxygen (Uranus) in the lungs and distributes it to the cells in the rest of the body.

A stroke is a condition in which the brain cells suddenly die because of a lack of oxygen. This can be caused by an obstruction in the blood flow, or the rupture of an artery that feeds the brain. The patient may suddenly lose the ability to speak, there may be memory problems, or one side of the body can become paralyzed.

This Soul will has the potential for sudden HEAD (Mars) injuries of a traumatic kind though some kind of unforeseen accident that could impact the spinal cord (Uranus), The opposition reflects the potential severity of a potential injury, that will range depending on other factors in the chart from moderate to severe as in paralysis. You can see this in a hard blow to the head in a football game, a car accident or a hard fall/accident to the head. The fact that Uranus is involved this suggests an injury that could have long term effects of a traumatic nature that impact the overall nervous system.


RAD
"The brain stem is an important part of the hindbrain, and it controls functions that are critical to life, such as breathing and swallowing. The cerebellum is also located here, playing a role in physical ability. The brain stem is a structure that connects the brain to the spinal cord. Damage to this structure can be catastrophic, as it controls such things as blood pressure, heartbeat, and swallowing."
 
The type of injury is going to effect how the brain sends messages to the entire body including how the person is experiencing the pain resulting from the injury. In some cases this could feel like being plugged into a light socket of pain or the pain could shoot in out of no where. Also this signature connects to having a constant inner buzzing like static in the cells due to the nerves in the spinal column being traumatized or stressed. Because so much energy, blood, thus oxygen is being directed to the area of the potential injury, other organs could be also impacted if they they are not getting the blood flow they need to perform efficiently.

Headaches caused by constant stress. Any form of emotional stress caused by unresolved trauma will take it s toll physically on the body for emotional stress is the root of all dis-ease.

Migraines - A migraine is a severe, painful headache that is often preceded or accompanied by sensory warning signs such as flashes of light, blind spots, tingling in the arm. Migraine headaches result from a combination of blood vessel enlargement and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around these blood vessels. During the headache, an artery enlarges that is located on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple (temporal artery). This causes a release of chemicals that cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery.


Uranus connect to the LUNGS and the function of breathing so within this signature it could also connect to injury to the lungs for example a gun shot to the lungs or a puncture such as the rib puncturing the lung through some kind of accident.  Also the predisposition to lung conditions such as Pneumonia which is caused by an inflammation of one or both lungs due to infection Also Pleurisy which is an inflammation of the pleura, which is the moist, double-layered membrane that surrounds the lungs and lines the rib cage. The condition can make breathing extremely painful causing a sharp Mars pain when breathing, so with each breath, Uranus, there is a sharp Mars Pain. Sometimes it is associated with another condition called pleural effusion, in which excess fluid fills the area between the membrane's layers.

PTSD is a Uranian phenomena, Uranus also connects to the lungs and breathing,  and as a result the stress can lodge itself in the lungs, similar to watching an accident happen,  it creates one to gasp and the lungs freeze, you might find yourself holding your breath. all the oxygen exchanges occur in the lungs so if someone is not able to fully utilize lung capacity due to stress or not being able to breathe full or deeply, this then effects how oxygen it carried throughout the entire body thus how all of the organs are functioning for Oxygen equals LIFE.

Asthma: The airways are persistently inflamed, and may occasionally spasm, causing wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma can manifest in Souls with unresolved trauma,


Because Mars connects to blood flow, as well as Mars ruling male genitalia, this could impact this man’s ability to have an erection either through some trauma to his penis or as a result of nerve damage to the nerves that innervate this area.

Interruption of the flow..short circuiting..Uranus ruling the middle layer of the root chakra where the root of kundalini/sexual desires emanate can create a short circuiting because of the injury..this could also reflect in a “healthy” body quite the opposite, an easy and fast and electric ease of being able to have erection..being that it is an extreme signature...so in a healthy body it would would not take any warming up.

With Mars oppose Uranus this can be linked with an extremity of adrenaline due to the sustained stress in some cases this can cause an Adrenaline Rush. When that rush kicks in it turns off bodily functions such as digestion and boosts oxygen and glucose to the brain.

This signature can also be linked with an extremity in acids as Mars rules all the acids in the body with Pluto which can therefore ignite digestive complications, as well as reflux whereby the stomach acids recede into the esophagus and cause a burning. This is known as GERD Gastroespohageal reflux disease that effect the lower esophageal sphincter. Esophagus is Mars.

The Mars oppose Uranus can also connect to  PTSD combined with an intense of anger because of the traumas that may have occurred. The Mars oppose Uranus can also reflect a war symbol, being involved in explosions, gun shots etc and so the trauma linked with war/anger/revolt will physically take its toll on the body especially as over the years, any long term memories of the war are released within the nervous system can create an emergence of anger and total panic to surface seemingly out of nowhere and the Mars, flight or flight, 3rd chakra ruler can create an intensity that causes the blood to boil and the heart to race effecting directly the heart muscle, adding extra stress to all of the capillaries, and blood vessels causing inflammation, stress to all organs. At bare minimum this signature suggests a constant undercurrent of anxiety of some form that is always in place, never really free from stress, and the body always in a state of tension.

Peace,
Kristin

Hi Rad I have a couple basic questions that have come up as I'm working on the Uranus Mars correlations:

Sweat is mostly water and minerals. Minerals are Saturn. However is sweat, the substance itself, connected to Uranus? Is sweat an electrolyte?

Also would you mind clarifying the role electrolytes play in the body and how/why that correlates with Uranus?

Lastly, is the nose partially Uranus because it is responsible for taking in Oxygen?

Thank you so much. Love,

Hi Ari,

Hi Rad I have a couple basic questions that have come up as I'm working on the Uranus Mars correlations:

Sweat is mostly water and minerals. Minerals are Saturn. However is sweat, the substance itself, connected to Uranus? Is sweat an electrolyte?

**********

Sweat is a water that is filled with various minerals that the body via the sympathetic nervous system activates in order to regulate the body's temperature. Because of the connection to the sympathetic nervous system there is a correlation to Uranus. Additionally, the body temperature is regulated by the heart rate, and thus the Sun. It is not an electrolyte. There are sweat electrolyte tests that are aimed at determining the levels of chloride within the sweat. But, of itself, sweat is not an electrolyte. Because sweat is a water it's primary correlation with the natural trinity of the 4th, 12th, and 8th Houses, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, and Pluto, Neptune, and the Moon. To me the lead in this is the 4th House, Cancer, and the Moon which then has as it's natural polarity Saturn, Capricorn, and the 10th House that then correlates to the various minerals within the sweat.

The sweat gland itself correlates with Pluto, Scorpio, and the 8th House.


***********

Also would you mind clarifying the role electrolytes play in the body and how/why that correlates with Uranus?

***********

They correlate with Uranus because electrolytes are electrically charged, which means that they can conduct electrical impulses. The body needs electrical impulses to make muscle cells contract. The generation of an electrical impulse by a cell requires an electrical voltage to be maintained across the membrane of that cell. The difference in electrolyte levels creates and maintains these electrical voltages.

When the body intakes minerals from food they dissolve into a fluid that is then called an electrolyte. They're present in blood, urine, in the fluid inside the body's cells and in the fluid in the space surrounding the cells. Sodium, calcium, chloride, magnesium and potassium are the most common electrolytes in the human body. They're essential for many heart, nerve and muscle functions. They also play an important role in keeping fluid levels normal in different body compartments.

When imbalances occur in these electrolytes, whatever the causes may be, it can lead to medical issues linked with the nervous system, and the heart, in various degrees of severity. The body must maintain a balance between the water levels within the body and the electrolytes in order to function normally.


***********

Lastly, is the nose partially Uranus because it is responsible for taking in Oxygen?

**************

Yes, because it is part of the entire structure that takes in oxygen in the body. From this perspective even the mouth could have a correlation to Uranus.

**********

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad and All,

I have been meaning to post but find that when I work on this I overwhelm myself.  I start reading health and medical books and go off into all kinds of places and feel I am in over my head.

I am therefore going to just post a few simple thoughts, otherwise I will end up not posting anything :-)

Like I said when I posted a question earlier, stress is the first thing that popped into my head.  I also thought about spasms and then metabolism issues.  I am thinking there would be body chemistry (as produced by the brain (Uranus) and the adrenals (Mars) issues causing hypo (low) and hyper (high) levels of various chemicals and even hormones.  Chemical imbalances causing havoc throughout but mostly depending on which signs and houses are involved.  With the adrenals being pumped up (triggered by transits), cortisol levels can go from low to high leading to weigh gain or loss.  There may also be hormonal imbalances causing imbalances in relation to sexual energy - swinging from high to low etc. 

Of course, an individual with Urn opp Mars may be quick to anger, which effects the body on a physical level (blood pressure) and may be accident prone.

Sexual trauma is another road I started down.

Wow, there are just so many possibilities and I am finding that my knowledge of physiology is rather basic  :-)

Post by: Rad on Sep 01, 2013, 08:05 AM
Cat and others,

There is no need to read medical books at all. All's we need to do is examine the correlations that have been provided about the anatomy, physiology, and the chakra systems and then link those correlations to the example: Mars opposed Uranus. So, in this example we would simply refer to the correlations of Mars, Aries, and the 1st House to the correlations of Uranus, Aquarius, and the 11th House and put that in the context of an opposition. That's all we have to do.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad, this is what I have so far. I want to let you know that I am thoroughly appreciating this practice. By looking at the correlations you listed and doing my own research on them - all in the context of a specific practice (Mars Uranus) it is helping me to learn and understand how this works little by little.

I would like to continue to research the correlations you have made and write more here while we are still on Mars Uranus - even if its just a little. I'll be doing that over the rest of this week. Thank you again for this opportunity.
God bless, am

Neurotransmitter acetycholine is co-ruled by Uranus and Mars as it is a neurotransmitter that binds with skeletal muscle fibers. Upon binding to these fibers it opens up channels in the cell membranes which is then entered by sodium which apparently results in muscle contraction (the role of an electrolyte?). One correlation I can see from that is where the brain will fire the acetypcholine neurotransmitter due to some sort of fight flight response which results in involuntary muscle contraction/muscle tension.

Mars rules the testes and the penis. Acetycholine is also responsible for the swelling of the penis, which correlates as well to the contraction of the testes. I imagine due to sexual trauma/sexual violence there can be issues with the firing or the reception of this neurotransmitter resulting in impotence and psychologically dissociative behavior around sexual arousal/ expression of desires. Uranus also co-rules the sheathing on the nerves. There can be a wear on the nerve sheathing which then could eventually lead to nerve damage.

Dehydration throughout the body in general is possible with this opposition. I see that there are several kinds of dehydration. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydration). Most forms of dehdration in humans are isotonic which refers to an equal loss of water and electrolytes. This can be created through a great amount of stress on the central nervous system.

Mars rules red blood cells. Red blood cells are responsible for carrying lots of oxygen throughout the body. From wiki on red blood cells:   
Quote
Red blood cells, or erythrocytes, are the most common type of blood cell and thevertebrate organism's principal means of delivering oxygen (O2) to the body tissues via the blood flow through the circulatory system.[1] They take up oxygen in the lungs or gills and release it while squeezing through the body's capillaries

The oxygen is received from the lungs which of course receives it from the air that is breathed. Lungs correlate to Uranus, and there can often be issues with full breathing due to various traumas. This can then have the impact of lowering the amount of oxygen in the blood which then effects the functioning of the entire body, including level of alertness/awakeness. This can lead to various medication conditions wherein the body is deprived of the oxygen that it needs.

Of course there can also be difficulty breathing and there is the clear possibility of accidents/direct trauma involving the lungs as well which can affect all that was stated above.

Injuries to the nose that impede upon the ease of taking in oxygen.

I see the potential for a dramatically high energy level with the combination of testosterone, the nervous system and the brain, which in time can overtax the body if the person does not find a way to create a calming balance with himself to accomidate for the potential inner stress of the nervous system.

Potential stressors in muscle tissue and blood flow, potential disruptions of the neurotransmitters correlating to disrupted release of Dopamine, Serotonin,  Gaba, and Acetylcholoine.

A general potential disruption of the overall nervous system and the bodys ability to deal with the energy overload. Perhaps Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a potential medical disorder.....


Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Linda on Sep 05, 2013, 04:48 PM
MARS OPPOSITE URANUS


Some correlations:

Uranus … brain, neurotransmitters, entire central nervous system, bursting action.

Mars … muscles, red blood cells, primary brain.


The specific correlation to the Mars opposite Uranus aspect is the severe disruption to the neurotransmitter, Acetylcholine, located in both the central nervous system (Uranus) and the peripheral nervous system (Uranus). In the central nervous system, acetylcholine plays a role in attention and arousal. In the peripheral nervous system, this neurotransmitter is a major part of the autonomic nervous system and works to activate muscles (Mars).

Neurotransmitters (Uranus) are chemical messengers which the brain (Uranus) uses to deliver instructions from one neuron (nerve cell) to another (the sheathing on the nerves correlates to Uranus). Without this versatile troupe working in concert, our brains could not function. Acetylcholine is a key player in this troupe.  The body uses more of it than any other neurotransmitter.

Acetylcholine is the primary neurotransmitter in charge of muscle movement (Mars). It is found both in smooth muscle and skeletal muscle.  Acetylcholine dictates that our muscles work in harmony.
For mental alertness, concentration and memory, acetylcholine is a must.  When levels are right, mood is elevated, the mind is focused, and intelligence increased. The brain performs its dance smoothly and effortlessly. When acetylcholine levels are low, learning and recall can plummet. The ability to think clearly and coherently can be disrupted.

This neurotransmitter also plays a vital role in controlling primitive drives and emotions, eg anger, fear, and aggression. When there is an imbalance among our neurotransmitters, these drives and emotions, now unchecked, can wreak havoc on both the individual affected and on the people around them.

Our brain’s ability to create acetylcholine lessens as we get older. This can give rise to memory loss and possibly to dementia later in life. Research has shown that all people who experience dementia suffer from insufficient acetylcholine.

Steady blood flow (Mars, red blood cells) is vital for acetylcholine to do its job. But if blood flow in the brain is restricted, by damage caused by strokes, for example, acetylcholine takes a serious hit. This problem is compounded by the fact that the acetylcholine system controls blood flow to the outer portion of the brain.

Uranus correlates with the brain (and Mars to the head), therefore strokes/injury within the brain, and to the physical action of bursting when an existing restriction within the body has reached an extreme.

A stroke is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to a disturbance in the blood vessels supplying blood to the brain. This can be due to ischemia (lack of blood supply) or to a hemorrhage (Uranus, bursting action).  As a result, the affected area of the brain is unable to function. 

The ability of the brain to recover from such injury as stroke or trauma depends on a particular circuitry of neurons that ‘talk’ to one another using the brain chemical acetylcholine.

Parasympathetic nerve fibers send out acetylcholine which induces relaxation, ie slows down the heart.  In regards to the cardiac cycle, it influences the volume of blood (Mars) that is ejected during the cycle.  When heart rate decreases, cardiac output should also decrease.


*****

Thanks Rad and group!

Hi Rad

Medical correlations - Uranus opposed Mars

Possible manifestations include

* stress, potential PTSD, and potential bursting involving the nervous system, potentially affecting the integrity of the myelin sheathing of neurons. Imbalances in the levels of neurotransmitters serotonin, and acetylcholine.

* Mars co-ruling acetylcholine and ruling adrenaline and muscles in general would create cycles of restlessness and muscular tension because of defensive physiological response, increased levels of lactic acid, and fluctuating levels of energy.

* Also, potential irregular breathing, ranging from hyperventilation to shallow breathing or no breathing, affecting the levels of oxygen in the bloodstream

* heat in the lungs, and hemoptysis    

* potential imbalances in the levels of iron and hemoglobin affecting oxygen/energy

* also, wonder if this could be a potential signature for anemia

* potential de-hydration and fluctuating levels of testosterone, translating in fluctuating sexual desire.

* extremes in energy levels within the nervous system could produce a stroke

* tension in the diaphragm and the esophagus  

* in some cases, the Uranus/Mars opposition could reflect a potential for diseases of sexual transmission affecting the nervous system

* at the chakra system, Mars opposed Uranus could reflect an intention to align egocentric will with a higher will, which has required a liberation from Saturn conditioning. Thus, contents emanating from the individuated subconscious would be demanding externalized action reflecting the liberation, with the potential for willful assertion at an egocentric level, with the underlying intention to align with a higher will, thus creating clashes of will. This will be different in each case and would depend on the evolutionary state of the individual.

* because the umbilical chakra relates to digestion, and the root chakra relates to elimination, the Uranus/Mars opposition could affect persitalsis and hydration of the gastrointestinal tract, producing constipation alternating with diarrhea.  

Thanks so much.

God Bless,

Gonzalo

Hi Rad, I’ve been researching lots of “data” and mostly I feel I have lots of unconnected bits of information. I just wanted to fill you in on my process - my inner guidance at this time is to give all the research a significant rest and to learn by way of taking only small steps myself, by reading other people’s posts and your feedback – and asking questions based on all that. I’ve been trying too hard to research and place together too many Gemini pieces together without enough Sag understanding of nearly any of it.

Hi Rad,

Thanks so much for this.

                       
                             Mars opposite Uranus – Medical implications for a male

Generally speaking there may be too much (opposition) electrical energy entering into the nervous system (Uranus), and this could cause restlessness, and combined with the Mars opposition impatience, which may lead to cuts, burns and other accidents.

The person will be prone to sporadic muscle rhythm because of excitability (Uranus), which in turn could lead muscular spasms at times. Mars relates to matters connected to the head skeleton, and Uranus to unpredictable movement which could lead to head injuries.

There could also be problems with overstimulated (Mars) nerves (Uranus) – twitching, nervousness, or nervous compression within some muscles leading to numbness, or "pins & needles".

The person will have an inherently charged energy system, as the testosterone production (mars) will be strong. There could also be high levels of adrenaline produced, and the two in combination could lead to overly high exertion over an extended period of time (eg overwork, fighting), leading to adrenal burnout. This in turn would produce excessive acidity in the body, which would lay the foundation for all manner of illnesses to manifest at some point in the future. Additionally Uranus under stress (opposition) would probably produce excessive free radicals. As the acid conditions would inhibit antioxidants that could neutralise those free radicals this would set up a generally disease prone bodily environment.

Mars is fiery which could aggravate the tendency of Uranus to produce dehydration, so they would need to drink plenty of fluids to make sure their body generally functioned and excreted well. They would also need to drink plenty of water to keep the serotonin levels up, which would help keep them calm.

Because Uranus rules the lungs and oxygen, and Mars the red blood cells that carry the oxygen around the body, this person may be prone to cigarette smoking, especially to settle their nerves and/or if there was no suitable physical outlet for their physical and emotional energy.

Also there would be a tendency to excessive internal inflammation (Mars) as a result of all the above.

Hi All,

First, I have now reviewed what each of you has submitted. The correlations to the anatomy, physiology, and the chakra system relative to the Mars/Uranus opposition are correct. Some of you of course have submitted a more full list of potentialities of this combination than others. To me, again, the value is always in the effort so I thank each of you for making that effort.

Three of you have asked questions within your analysis that I will answer here:

Gonzalo: " also, wonder if this could be a potential signature for anemia "

***********

Yes...

**********

Ari: "Neurotransmitter acetycholine is co-ruled by Uranus and Mars as it is a neurotransmitter that binds with skeletal muscle fibers. Upon binding to these fibers it opens up channels in the cell membranes which is then entered by sodium which apparently results in muscle contraction (the role of an electrolyte?).

******

The role of electrolytes is the maintain the delicate balance between water and all the various minerals and salts in the body. When this balance is out of balance due to a lack of electrolytes then one of the symptoms that can manifest in involuntarily muscles contractions and spasms.

************

Katherine: "Stress moves in a perpetual feedback loop affecting all levels experienced i.e. physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually? "

**********

Yes.

***************

So we can now move to our next step which is to place the Uranus/Mars opposition in a specific house. So let's put Uranus in the 4th House, and Mars in the 10th. When you refer to the correlations that have been provided focus on the sign Cancer and the 4th House, and Saturn and the 10th House. These houses now correlate to not only the type of inner and outer conditions that can serve to ignite the inherent potentialities of the Mars opposed Uranus, but also add to what those potentialities may be as defined by the houses that this aspect takes place within.

So go ahead and make these additional correlations. If you have any questions please ask now.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad and All,

I have a comment/question that is not directly related to the material presented here, but is related to Medical Astrology.  I was just reading the news and saw an article about a comet:

http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2013/09/10/if-the-sun-doesnt-blast-it-comet-ison-will-soon-light-up-the-sky/

Years ago, I knew an astrologer (Marilyn Muir) who was doing research on comets and major epidemics.  I cannot remember all of the details, but she had observed that every time a comet was seen from Earth, a new health epidemic followed.  At the time, it was HIV/AIDS. 

Rad, I am wondering if you have observed this or have any information backing this up or refuting it?  I don't know if Marilyn ever published her findings, but she had a lot information if I recall.

Hi Cat,

I have read that sort of assertion over the years as well. In my opinion it is hog wash. I have never seen, which does not mean that it does not exist, any substantial evidence that this is true. If it were true it would mean that organisms like viruses and bacterias are jettisoned from these comets which then, presumably, infect our Earth. It just does not make sense to me because anything entering the atmosphere of our Earth is burnt up including any organisms.

God Bless, Rad

Thanks Rad.  I wasn't thinking it meant that comets literally cause epidemics by introducing bacteria and/or viruses, but was thinking it was a symbolic "sign" of an epidemic to come.  The way you put it certainly makes me think its ridiculous  :-)  I haven't found any good research (observations/correlations) on-line, just statements with little detail, so, hmmm. 

Thanks again

Hi Cat,

If, somehow, comets just correlated to a 'sign' of epidemics, to herald them, then indeed there would be a vast amount of specific correlations going back a very long time. There just isn't of course as you know. So, yep, a totally ridiculous projection by some humans. Oh well, what else is new ?

Hi Rad and All,

This is what I came up with:



mars in the 10th opposition uranus in the 4th house

Here we have a man who potentially suffers from chronic stress or trauma due to parental and social conditioning patterns that make him believe that in order to be accepted, he must abide by the norms of society and work hard to get ahead and achieve a position of social status.  Pressure from his parents and society cause him to work hard in order to climb the corporate ladder and be "successful."  His need and desire to achieve does not allow him to relax as he believes he has to work hard in order to gain peer recognition and parental and social approval. He is driven to achieve.

With Uranus in the 4th, the parental conditioning patterns are very strong as Uranus correlates to the mid layer of the root chakra which correlates to the "messaging" taking place within his entire body.  Whatever he was conditioned to believe, permeates every cell in his body.  In other words, his thoughts and beliefs, have a great deal of influence on his physical health.  With Uranus in the 4th, there is a desire to break free and liberate himself from parental conditioning patterns, but they are so strong that this desire creates a great deal of stress and tension within him.  The 4th house correlates to the 3rd Eye Chakra which correlates to the pineal gland.  It is very possible that this man suffers from migrane headaches due to the stress and tension from wanting to just be himself but being conditioned to be who and what his parents conditioned him to be. in addition he may have a hard time concentrating and suffer from confusion and negative feelings. Other potential physical problems include brain tumors, stroke, neurological problems such as Parkinson's, seizures, spinal difficulties, and problems with the ears, eyes, and nose.

At the same time, Mars correlates to the Naval Chakra and the 10th House to the outer layer of the Root Chakra. When stressed or over worked, it is possible that this man becomes angry and possibly violent. Imbalances and stress can lead to tiredness or exhaustion, blood disorders, impotency, kidney or bladder problems, constipation, anemia, obesity, or lower back pain. And of course, anger can lead to accidents.

Hi Rad and all, here´s my go at this. Thanks again to all participating.

Medical part two.

As stated earlier, one of the key factors in this combination that can lead to medical issues is stress, with Uranus in the fourth house opposite Mars in the tenth house we now have more information relative to the inner and outer conditions that may lead to medical issues.

As Uranus is in the Fourth house, there can be subconscious memories of traumatic experiences from previous lives of abandonment or emotional shocks deep within the memory of the Soul, causing irrational or subconscious fears because of these memories. These experiences can also be re-played in the current life. Dynamics relative to emotional security, nurturing himself and others or, others nurturing him, can be stressful because of the need to rebel against crystalized emotional and family dynamics, that do not nurture and support a true representation of his individuality. The evolutionary intention is to accelerate his evolution by gaining objective awareness of his individual emotional security needs and to minimize external dependencies, therefore he may have to stand back as a group of one within his own family. This person might grow up in a family environment where many of his personal needs would be unmet or his individuality simply misunderstood by the parents. Or certain dynamics within the family could be opposite what others of like mind expect from a "normal" household, making him feel like the only "normal" one in the environment by adhering to social values other than the familial ones. Physical and emotional violence in the family environment are also a possibility with the opposition to Mars because of these dynamics that can lead to polarized confrontations with the parents or others in authority or in the environment. All this leads to a highly charged emotional energy in his life and environment that can make him very sensitive/defensive when threatened, snapping back impulsively and possibly having violent reactions. Others in the environment can also display this behavior by pushing him away/shocking him emotionally, with the effect of throwing him back on himself for his security needs instead of clinging on someone or something external.
As emotional or even physical needs are potentially unmet, even from a very young age, the child is forced back upon himself for nurturing and emotional self reliance. This can lead to a sense of isolation and an inability to integrate emotionally within the family environment as a child, to become a rebel or a "problem child" that rejects everything out of a subconscious fear of losing his individuality to that which he is rebelling against. As an adult there can be an inability to relate emotionally with others in a consistent way, thus effecting their intimate and professional relationships by projecting security needs onto partners, expressing displaced emotions or being immature and irresponsible.

Consistency is needed for any living being to have a healthy emotional life and be a productive member of society. Without a solid, consistent, emotional sense of security and a healthy self image, one cannot operate in society in a constructive, balanced manner. The opposition aspect shows the tension and difficulty in balancing the need for a healthy emotional life where he can express his individuality consistently, with a career and sense of social accomplishment.

With Mars in the Tenth house there can be the instinctive impulse to get ahead within the social scheme of whatever society the person finds himself in. Mars here will correlate to a person who acts in a goal oriented manner, with the tendency to be very ambitious. This ambition can be caused by the individuals need to learn self responsibility from a young age, to fend for himself, to have to work hard in order to gain the approval/affection of authority figures, and due to dynamics shown by the opposition to Uranus, which can ignite the desire to break free from the family and be independent financially by working in the "real world", so he can be free to be himself. The desire to get ahead and achieve goals can create stress/frustration/anger as he encounters limitations from authority figures or other external or internal limiting factors. Mars in the Tenth can suppress emotional or physical needs in order to act responsibly and achieve set goals or to behave in the correct manner as defined by parents, society or external authority figures. This in itself can lead to inner frustration because of the suppression of natural desires in order to be in conformity with what is expected of him. When natural desires would be acted upon, to the contrary of what is "socially correct", there can be the fear of judgement from others, creating an inner feeling of man made guilt.

Negative emotions such as guilt, fear, anger, frustration, anxiety and traumas that are unprocessed or suppressed, stay in the energetic/emotional bodies and effect him on a subconscious level. These emotions build up as energy blocks in the root, navel and ajna chakras effecting his sense of security, his will power and his perception. Because of his security needs (root) there can be a collision of wills which depletes his will power (navel), that has the effect of distorting his perception (ajna).

These dynamics can lead to the medical conditions mentioned earlier by all in this thread and to:

Eating disorders or improper dietary practices. Contraction of the muscles due to emotional shock and/or emotional suppression which, if not relaxed can develop into contractures and possibly scoliosis. Tendinitis from working too hard in strenuous positions, osteoarthritis, muscle cramps. Anemia from mal nutrition, low calcium levels leading to low bone density, increasing the risks of osteoporosis which leads to weak bones that fracture easily. Ulcers from suppressed negative emotions/excessive anxiety etc, digestive problems, acid reflux, heartburn. Poor nutrition leading to over all PH being too acidic which facilitates the development of bacteria in the body, causes lactic acid buildup, negative effect on immune system, joint inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis. Poor vision from emotional trauma, dehydration, mal nutrition, over straining the muscles and nerves in the eyes. Potential for Glaucoma? Eye twitches, dry eyes. Brain damage from mothers negative emotions while still in the womb, mothers diet, unhealthy habits such as smoking which limits the supply of oxygen to the unborn baby or trauma to the mother while pregnant. Difficult/traumatic childbirth for mother and or baby. Serotonin imbalance leading to depression, erratic mood swings, insomnia, fatigue. Teeth grinding as a way for the body to release stress. Polycythemia, a bone marrow disease that over produces red blood cells and thickens the blood, causing clots that can lead to strokes or heart attack. Overactive bladder caused by neurological disorders, urinary incontinence due to weak muscles in the pelvic area. Dry scalp. Nervous breakdowns. Nervous ticks. ADHD. Multiple sclerosis? All sorts of accidents.

Hi Rad,
Other dynamics, not withstanding...
Mars in the 10th: This man would attract/ pursue work environments that arr intense (exposure to risk) and demand ambition. He would be very strong, naturally, and would have measure of his physical limits—at the same time, possessing an inclination to push them. (Mars having traction in cardinal earth) He could come across as being provocative in the sense (gleam in the eye, so to speak) of being ready to ‘step’ (i.e. fight) and capable of doing damage. This underscores the previous notes about volatility… Intense physical activity might be an outlet for excess energy. Perhaps climbing or weight lifting as a practical means of building form (Saturn) which could be a healthy way toward dealing with stress or, become a separating desire to be recognized, objectified, feared. (Cardinal ref. to Cancerian insecurity and Libran aesthetics) Either way, the tendency toward competitiveness, independence, domination channeled through feats of strength and endurance would create stress to musculoskeletal system. Positively, this would increase blood circulation (O2) and bone density. Negatively, lactic acid accumulation in the muscles would aggravate an already acidic pH, overall.  Overriding signals of strain and fatigue (singular focus on desire- Mars) would lead to injury. Adhesions between the layers of tissues would create any number of soft tissue ailments.
Other issues: facial trauma (Bell’s palsy) clenching jaw, grinding teeth at night, TMJ, tension headaches, hyperthyroid-increased heart rate, palpitation, tremors, anxiety, elevated blood pressure/ hypertension (hypervigilant sympathetic nervous system), inflammation e.g. (osteo)arthritis, (chronic)joint pain, cracking/ popping in joints, acid reflux, tightness in upper trapezius (specifically links to stress / the gut via Uranus in 4th) Possible distorted desires for sexual domination, there’s room here too for repression/ self-criticism and judgment of these desires which, would manifest into physical disease mostly related to stagnation of blood (clots, etc) displaced anger, and in extreme cases of psycho-sexual disorder: forced sex/ rape.
Massage modalities: active isolated stretching and myofascial release to keep muscles tracking correctly
Asana: standing posses emphasizing balance, muscular, and organic energy connect navel and root chakras e.g. Virabhadrasana I,*II*,III, and Bhujangasana to ground

Uranus in the 4th:  This man would have an obtuse yet core sense of alienation, not feeling at home within the home/ body due to possible early trauma with a general heightened (live wire) sense of insecurity relative to personal safety.  They would have a short fuse and an elevated instinct when around others to filter all sensory data for potentially harmful or physically threatening circumstances (inconjunct from Cancer to Aquarius) Paraverbal communication is noticed, details (punctuated by smell) are remembered with minimal reminder to recall.  Over worked sympathetic, underutilized parasympathetic system. (Reinforces above signature, taxing kidneys/ adrenals) This is not to say "paranoid"… but, very watchful. This vigilance and emotional stress takes its toll on the stomach by way of a feeling of  ‘gut rot,’ nausea/ unstettled leads to disinterest/ aversion to eating food which would create chemical imbalances (supplement B vitamins) and more disorders. Intermittent digestive issues (IBS) disruption to pH regulation, enzyme production, which can cause gas/ bloating which leads to blockages that then cause autointoxication. Then painfully (possibly explosive) diarrhea would further create a situation of dehydration. Ulcers likely.
Other Issues: dry eyes and/or sensitivity to prolonged exposure of sunlight, night driving, or TV/ computer monitor. congenital neurological disorder: Uranus seems infused by a watery 4th house so no comment on the myelin or any other insulators, yet.
Massage modalities: chi nei tsang, thai
Asana: most twists, supta virasana, ustrasana, urdhva dhanurasana (when well) setu bandha sarvangasana
To me, the Uranus-Mars opposition has been reinforced by the house placement of 4-10, respectively.  On one side, a capability to endure (and thrive) under physical strain and on the other, a delicate constitution that requires time, rest, and care.  Spartan meets Goldilocks?  Balancing the two would be a challenge that may mean very separate times to engage fully in both dynamics of energy moving out and energy moving in i.e. work out early in the morning and at night take it easy with alkalizing foods and plenty of time to unplug and relax. Either way, two basic things are crucial: water (with an alkalizer: lemon or coconut) and sleep in very dark, quiet, and safe environments to recharge.

Hi Rad & all..

Mars in the 10th oppose Uranus in the 4th - I realize there will be a number of things that this aspect can represent but here are some thoughts. Also many of the specifics can be seen in the full chart but here are some possibilities.

Thanks Rad for this opportunity to grow on the subject..

Kristin

***
   
Considering Mars represents the lead point in a Soul’s evolution, for the Soul to choose to  come into a life with Mars in the 10th, this would signify a Soul who has chosen to shoulder a great deal of responsibility, a natural leader, a warrior in some cases as in a modern day soldier, a head of a corporation, perhaps self owned and or a president or senator. Regardless, they would carry a great feeling and burden of responsibility. Mars in the 10th oppose Uranus could also mean a Soul who was forced to grow up fast or to take responsibility at a young age. He may have been left home alone while the parent(s) worked. Of course we need to look at the entire chart nevertheless, the burden of responsibility is there. This signature might also reflect broken family structure when the Soul was young as in divorce or losing one or both parents and being raised by extended family, possibly adoption, which would have taken a toll on the Soul emotionally.

Mars in 10th oppose Uranus in 4th further reflects potentially a Soul in a past life defending his homeland and the trauma that occurred as a result, perhaps he himself dying while defending his family. The opposition to Uranus reflects watching loved ones perish and the ptsd that ensued the inability to access emotions as emotions and overreaction to the slightest emotional outbursts rage linked with fear or someone who has simply seen too much.

A common theme for all Souls is the need to feel secure. With Mars in the 10th opposing Uranus in the 4th this reflects unexpected events that totally devastate that feeling of security where the Soul feels totally emotionally anxious and inwardly traumatized and alone. Also as I mentioned in a prior post, the inability to ever emotionally relax. This can translate into chronic anxiety, in some cases panic and also chronic depression (10th).

Uranus with the Moon also rules the Hypothalums with is a portion of the brain which directs a multitude of important functions including regulating the endocrine system. The endocrine system is the system of glands, each of which secretes different types of hormones directly into the bloodstream (some of which are transported along nerve tracts) to maintain homeostasis. With Mars opposing Uranus in the 4th this would suggest the potential for the hormones to be out of balance and hormones regulate various human functions, including metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep, and mood.

Mars in the 10th - physical structure of the body including the entire skeleton, opposing Uranus in the 4th can equal experiencing a sudden injury, possibly being in a explosion for example in war or at battle or an accident occurring at home, 4th house. This could also signify being in a fire at home. This signature might reflect someone who could have even become blind in an explosion as Cancer 4th house, Moon connects to the eyes. Other possibilities with the eyes are cataracts which forms naturally as one ages, 10th house, and glaucoma. Glaucoma refers to a group of diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve, Uranus. If left untreated, glaucoma may cause vision loss and blindness.

Mars in the 10th opposing Uranus in the 4th could signify an overly acidic stomach, acid indigestion, also reflux known as GERD, Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a acid reflux disease is a chronic symptom of mucosal damage caused by stomach acid coming up from the stomach into the esophagus. Gerd is chronic symptom of mucosal (Mars in the 10th)damage. GERD is usually caused by changes in the barrier between the stomach and the esophagus, including abnormal relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, which normally holds the top of the stomach closed impaired expulsion of gastric reflux from the esophagus, or a hiatal hernia. These changes may be permanent or temporary. Unresolved emotions and anger can fester in the belly, also experiences of massive stress and danger can result of an endorphin surge from unresolved rage stirring in the guts which impacts digestion. This could be a soul with so much repressed emotion and not vehicle for release that the energy turns on itself..inverts..and the result is would poor digestion to reflux to the feeling of inflamed guts, like a belly on fire. Mars in the 10th opposing Uranus in the 4th could connect to inflammation of the lining of the belly. Also this would increase the propensity for stomach ulcers which is most commonly caused to high amounts of stress.

Head injury to the occipital lobe..(4th) which is the most posterior part of the back of the head..could have slipped and fell back on head..or a fall from high up such as someone falling off a roof of a house, structure 10th, home 4th. Also paralysis in extreme cases where the spinal cord, Uranus is injured/severed. The spinal cord is the elongated bundle of nervous tissue that carries nerve impulses between the brain and the rest of the body. It lies in the vertebral canal of the vertebral column, this connects to Saturn/10th house.


Ultimately this would be a Soul who is under so much emotional stress due whether as a result of responsibilities they have taken on in the world, or constantly worrying about their family, 4th house, perhaps they have long term memories in some cases of trauma to loved ones and it makes it impossible for them to ever relax. These memories may also simply be deep in their cellular memory and it creates an undercurrent of unrelenting persistent anxiety, and the Soul may be unaware of why and where it is coming from if it is from a past life. Or there may have been traumas as a child that the Soul has consciously ‘forgotten’ attempted to detach from in order to protect themselves. This signature could also connect to some form of child abuse, sexual and/or physical, by the mother and perhaps an angry father with elements of rage in the home. This may also reflect an upbringing where the emotions of the parents were repressed or parents that were emotionally distant.


The cingulate cortex, Uranus, is a part of the brain situated in the medial aspect of the cerebral cortex. It includes the cortex of the cingulate gyrus (Uranus withe the Moon -4th house). The cingulate cortex. It is an integral part of the limbic system, which is involved with emotion formation and processing, learning, and memory. The combination of these three functions makes the cingulate gyrus highly influential in linking behavioral outcomes to motivation. This role makes the cingulate cortex highly important in disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. It also plays a role in executive function and respiratory control.

The causes of schizophrenia have been the subject of much debate, with various factors proposed and discounted or modified. Studies suggest that genetics, prenatal development, early environment, neurobiology and psychological and social processes are important contributory factors which can be reflected in with Mars in the 10th opposing Uranus in the 4th house.

With Uranus ruling the respiratory system and the lungs, the Mars in the 10th opposing Uranus in the 4th could signify shallow breathing due to the ongoing emotional stress and fears lodged in the lungs as well as asthma. Specific allergies and asthma may be a result of unresolved trauma from the past and a predisposition for pneumonia or pleurisy.

Mars in the 10th oppose Uranus could also connect to the Soul getting Parkinsons disease as one ages, 10th house. a common neurologic disease believed to be caused by deterioration of the brain cells that produce dopamine, occurring primarily after the age of 60, characterized by tremors, Uranus. My mom was diagnosed at 79 with Parkinson’s as she has a Mars oppose Uranus aspect although not in the 4th and the 10th, however they do square her 10th house Pluto in Cancer which correlates to the same archetypes here.

Also another possibility as he ages, 10th house Mars would be dementia or Alzheimers, with the opposition to Uranus, which involves a progressive decline, changes in the brain, in the aging process impacting memory, including not recognizing members of their own family, 4th house.

The relative degree of possibilities within this aspect can be reflected in the level of emotional repression of emotion, Mars in the 10th, and the trauma seen in the opposition to Uranus in the 4th, that would throw this Soul back upon itself in order to evolve.

Hi Rad, I want to let you know how I'm approaching this and ask if you have any suggestions for me.

Since I have such a limited knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology I've just been picking a few of the correlations you listed and putting forth effort to understand the very very basic nature of that anatomy or physiology and to try to understand the nature/reasons for their astrological correlations. This way I am allowing for small steps. What I'm reminding myself is that its more valuable to learn just a couple new things than to try to "memorize" data or find a way to include lots of the data you have listed. This being said, it is a hard process for me - something that I'm finding I can only concentrate on for small periods of time.
So I'm very receptive to any suggestions you may have for me regarding this learning process.

Also, why is fat Saturn?
Thank you,
Love, am



Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: Rad on Sep 26, 2013, 08:13 AM
Hi Ari,

"So I'm very receptive to any suggestions you may have for me regarding this learning process."

********

To me the best way to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the body is to see the 'whole' of it first so that all of it's individual parts them make sense. So, for me, that starts with understanding the genetic structure of the body as a root issue. From that root of genetics all manifests from there: like a root of a flower that then creates a steam, branches, and then flowers. The body is just like that. So by understanding the root of genetics all other body things can be understood.

************

"Also, why is fat Saturn?"

***************

Fats correlate to Saturn, Capricorn, and the 10th House because they are part of the natural structure of the body that promote healthy skin and hair, insulating body organs against shock, maintaining body temperature, and promoting healthy cell function. Fat also serves the function of storing energy within the body that it needs to use at all times: like money in the bank. Fat also serves as a vehicle to buffer the body against many types of disease by diluting from the bloodstream excessive levels of various substances that can cause disease. This diluting process is then stored in the body by way of new fat substances that serve to insulate various body organs against these potential diseases until they can be eliminated by way of being metabolized or removed from the body via various forms of excretion.

*********

God Bless, Rad

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: ari moshe on Sep 29, 2013, 12:11 AM
Hi Rad, I want to let you know where I'm at. I have come to realize is that what's best for me is to keep it really simple to just focus on the anatomy/physiology that I already understand for now before trying to incorporate so much new data. I've been experiencing stress in researching the connection between so many aspects of the body without having the necessary baseline understanding. I feel I need to allow the connections to built more slowly and organically. And I do intend to begin studying genetics.

So I'm going to start over again with this approach and make a solid effort to post something concrete and very simple for tomorrow night (Sunday). If you do have any further advice/guidance regarding my participation in this thread I am very open to receive it. Thank you,
With love, am

Hi Ari,

Your approach is just right to me. In the long term, yes, study genetics and evolutionary biology. For now do exactly as you intend to do: one step at a time.

Title: Re: Medical Astrology
Post by: ari moshe on Sep 29, 2013, 09:51 PM
Hi Rad,
Why is saturn associated with the anal canal?
Is the structure of the nose co-ruled with saturn because simply the nose is made of bone and cartilage?

So basic correlations with Mars in the 10th house, just by itself can imply an individual that might be very strong. Muscles that connect to the bones, as well as the bones, correlate to Saturn. Mars is muscles as well. So there can be a strong structure to this body.

Taking Uranus in the 4th just by itself, since the 4th house correlates to all containers in the body and Uranus correlates to "bursting" when an existing limitation has reached a restriction, there can be issues with holding on to urine due to unresolved childhood trauma, leading to a bursting of the bladder. With Mars in opposition in the 10th house, we can also see a strain on the muscles that would be involved in contracting the bladder, which can lead to things like ruptures of some sort. Rupturing can occur within the anal canal as well.

Along with the possibility of trauma linked with sexual function, now we see that there may be a repression/holding back of sexual desire due to unresolved emotional trauma and guilt linked to the sexual function. This holding back of the sexual impulse - especially if during sex - can lead to a build up of semen which creates stress on the testes which can result in a bladder infection, or injure/weaken the muscle that is responsible for ejaculation. Something can rupture as well.

There can be injuries to the nose, 10th house, Uranus, which leads to an impediment of air flow, which leads to a lack of oxygen going to the brain which leads to a decrease in concentration. Difficulty in breathing can lead to cramping and pain in the stomach and an overall poor ability to digest food. All this can lead to pain in the spine in various places. Due to conditioned emotional responses, this individual may perpetuate stress in the body and the alignment of the spine by creating forceful and compulsive movements such as compulsively cracking the neck or spine when nervous or under emotional stress.

Since Mars rules the naval Chakra and we're looking at it's placement in the 10th house opposite Uranus there may be repression of basic urges, which then leads to a holding back of his fire which can translate to weak digestion. This can lead to inflections in various organs in the body. There may be issues with elimination here as well, Saturn root chakra along with the anal canal.

The Moon correlates to the third eye, there may be great psychic sensitivity to his surroundings - due to being very sensitive, this soul may be on guard all the time, on emotional defense - this can lead to high blood pressure (is this true?) and other conditions I stated above such as issues with elimination, bursting or hemoraging of organs as a result of creating so much internal stress. The third eye correlation of the Moon along with Uranus in the 4th correlating to so many parts of the brain, and migraines in general, there can be strong headaches that are set off by various stress stimuli.
Thank you Rad,
God bless

Hi Ari,

"Why is saturn associated with the anal canal?"

**********

First, it is co-ruled with Pluto where Pluto correlates with elimination and feces. Saturn because of it's correlations with valves, the anal canal have valves within it, that secrete lubrications to moisten the feces itself that helps in the passage of the feces.

Are the vocal chords Mercury and/or Venus?

Is radiation Sun/Pluto?

************

Urine has a co-ruler: Moon and Pluto

*************

No. Feces is specific to Pluto, the 8th house, and Scorpio. Urine is co-ruled with the Moon and Pluto.

***********

Are the vocal chords Mercury and/or Venus?

***********

Mercury correlates to the vocal cords of themselves, where Venus correlates to the actual quality of the 'sound' that the vocal cords produce. This is like the ears wherein the the anatomy of the ears is Mercury whereas the psychology of how we hear is Venus.

Is radiation Sun/Pluto?

Medical correlations - Uranus 4th House opposed Mars 10th House

* An Intensified signature of stress and/or potential PTSD, connecting to prior lifetimes and/or early environment, a signature for potential early domestic violence, and child abuse … probably not all cases, but perhaps most of them …

* extreme intensity of emotional states thereof, because of the 4th House AND Uranus correlations with the Amygdala and the Cingulate Cortex, and the 4th House correlation with the Limbic system

* Confirms Intensity of imbalances of neurotransmitter serotonin because of its correlation with Saturn/Uranus/Moon

* The HPA system would be very implied, because of Uranus/4th House correlation with Hypothalamus, Pituitary correlation with Saturn (as well as Pluto and Jupiter) and Mars correlation with the adrenals.

* potential ‘breakdown in the integrity of the b and t cells that manifest from the bone marrow, which can then implicate immune system issues’. Also, the high levels of stress would directly impact on the immune system.  ‘Imbalance between the white and red blood cells’.

* because it is a signature of potential fragmentation within personality (Uranus 4th House), it can correlate with what was called few years ago borderline personality disorder, the symbols correlating most cases with aspects of the personality defined by extremely intense emotions which are not integrated between them and within the personality ..

* I am reasoning that these sole symbols can reflect either the potential for high levels of sustained stress, or the potential for PTSD (coming from childhood, from pre-natal life, or from prior lifetimes). The levels of cortisol secreted would tend to be extreme … low, in case of PTSD, high in the case of sustained high stress (though, I note cortisol correlates with Venus, however, being a signature of stress, it seems to me it would be involved via the Uranus correlation ...)   

* potential for memory issues or disorders, both in ‘scene memory’ associated with recognition of social context (10th House, Uranus/Saturn correlation with Parahippocampal gyrus), and face recognition (Uranus 4th House, I wonder the Fusiform face area would correlate with Uranus/Moon); also because the Cingulated cortex correlates with Uranus/Moon, being connected with emotion processing and memory; and further, because cortisol and adrenaline work together in creating short-term memories of emotional events, while long term levels of cortisol (as would be the case in sustained stress, versus PTSD) can damage cells in the Hyppocampus-Uranus-impacting on memory and learning 

* Because of the Cingulated cortex correlation with Uranus/Moon, and because it relates with emotion processing, memory, and learning, it is associated with motivation. Thus, Mars 10th House reflects potential for depression, and fatigue, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritability, ‘sudden and unexpected bouts of anger’ (I’m quoting Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion).

* the Amygdala is connected with regulation of fight/fly response (Uranus/Mars), and further, with regulation of  ‘temporary immobility before flight or flight’, and thus, it can create a ‘freezing’ response in some cases (10th House Mars)

* I wonder that the Prefrontal lobe, and the Orbitofrontal cortex can correlate with Uranus/Saturn, thus, with Mars in the 10th these areas would be highly activated or imbalanced in some cases reflecting desires to maintain external controls, or on the contrary, desires to lose social control. Also the Basal ganglia could be involved, dealing with ‘action selection’ and motor inhibitory control, with Mars being in the 10th House, because of the Basal ganglia correlation with Uranus (however, co-ruled by Jupiter) …. this would reflect a conflict between First and Third chakras … and the conflict between controlling and liberating of control would impact in the body movement, potentially creating neurological conditions such as Parkinson or Huntington’s disease.   

* in some cases, a potential for ‘antisocial behavior’ and aggression

* Because of Saturn/Moon correlation with Calcium, and Saturn correlations with Magnesium and Phosphorus, and the 10th House correlation with the skeleton, and Mars/Saturn correlation with muscles (and Mars/Uranus correlation with acetylcholine, and Mars with adrenaline, affecting the tension or stiffness/softness of muscles) there would be a potential impact on the structure of the bones. Given that cortisol affects the absorption of Calcium, the case would be different depending on whether sustained stress or PTSD exist. If sustained stress has existed since early childhood, there could be an impact of bone development and growth because of high levels of cortisol, leading to fragility of the bones, and osteoporosis.

* Because of 4th House correlation with stomach, and the umbilical and root chakras implied in digestion and elimination, the Uranus/Mars opposition could manifest a series of digestive issues.     

* Given the 4th House correlation with the eyes, and the Uranus/Moon correlation with the Occipital lobe dealing with visual processing, the Uranus/Mars opposition could affect vision. One way this could occur is through imbalances of the inner blood pressure in the eye, or through a stroke affecting the Occipital lobe.

Hi Group,
 
I ran across the following article on the now proved fact that the brain of Einstein was in fact not only larger than any other human, but that the vital corridor that connects the right and left brain hemisphere's was itself extremely large. This is the area in the brain that synthesizes all the crossing information from the right and left brains in such a way as to intuitively see the larger picture of anything.

I am posting his birth chart so that we can then all see how EA medical astrology perfectly reflects these facts. Consider the appropriate symbols such as his Jupiter in Aquarius in the 9th which is then ruled by his Uranus in Virgo in the 3rd, that his S.Node of Mercury is conjunct that natal Jupiter, that his Jupiter is the natural ruler of his Sagittarius Moon which is conjunct the S.Node of Uranus and Lucifer, God inspiration, the S.Nodes of Vesta, Neptune, and Venus all in Aquarius, and that is natal Pluto, Ceres, Neptune, and Chiron are all in the 11th house.

So here is the article, and his chart is posted below that.

God Bless, Rad

Einstein’s brain really was bigger than most people’s

Neuroscientist Peter Tse: “It might be that [Einstein’s’ brain was slightly larger in these areas because he exercised these regions more than the average person.”

By Melissa Healy
Los Angeles Times

Albert Einstein had a colossal corpus callosum. And when it comes to this particular piece of neural real estate, it’s pretty clear that size matters.

Chances are, that brawny bundle of white matter cleaving the physicist’s brain from front to back is part of what made his mind so phenomenally creative. The corpus callosum carries electrical signals between the brain’s right hemisphere and its left.

Stretching nearly the full length of the brain from behind the forehead to the nape of the neck, the corpus callosum is the dense network of neural fibers that makes brain regions with very different functions work together.

When the corpus callosum works well, the human brain is a marvel of social, spatial and verbal reasoning. When it malfunctions, as it appears to do in autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, certain genetic disorders and after traumatic brain injury, the effect on cognition can be disastrous.

According to a letter to the editor published Thursday in the journal Brain, Einstein’s corpus callosum at the time of his death was a superhighway of connectivity, “thicker in the vast majority of subregions” than the corpus collosi of 15 elderly healthy males and thicker at five key crossings than those of 52 young, healthy males who served as a comparison group.

Upon Einstein’s death of an aortic aneurysm at age 76, his heirs approved the removal of his brain. Many histological slides were made, documenting minute slices of the theoretical physicist’s brain.

While some of those are housed at Princeton University, where Einstein spent his final years, and at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C., many have been lost or stolen. Without a full picture of Einstein’s brain, the basis of the theoretical physicist’s genius eludes scientists.

But photographs of Einstein’s postmortem brain unexpectedly came to light recently, giving neuroscientists a glimpse of the genius that lay within. Last November, the journal Brain published a detailed look at the surface of Einstein’s brain.

The latest analysis is based on several of these photographs, which showed the separated right and left hemispheres of Einstein’s postmortem brain. Those revealed the corpus callosum with great resolution and accuracy and allowed the current analysis.

The authors of the study — physicists from East China Normal University in Shanghai and Florida State University anthropologist Dean Falk — were particularly impressed by the relative brawn of Einstein’s corpus callosum at the splenium, a region of the corpus callosum that facilitates communication among the parietal, temporal and occipital lobes and between those regions and the brain’s intellectual-command center, the prefrontal cortex. The parietal and occipital lobes, in particular, are key to imagining and manipulating visuospatial information and images and to conducting mathematical operations.

Earlier studies of Einstein’s brain have found some regions, notably Einstein’s parietal lobes, were just plain bigger than those of normal people. But the authors write, “Our findings suggest that Einstein’s extraordinary cognition was related not only to his unique cortical structure and cytoarchitectonics, but also involved enhanced communications routes between at least some parts of his two cerebral hemispheres.”

Peter Tse, a Dartmouth College neuroscientist who recently explored the underpinnings of artistic, scientific and mathematical creativity, said the study’s findings underscore that the ways in which we use our brains, and the consistency with which we do so, may matter more as we age.

Tse noted that, while Einstein’s brain was much better connected than those of similarly aged men, it was not quite as strikingly more connected than those of healthy young controls.

That might reflect the fact that Einstein continued to exercise his brain strenuously, forestalling much of the atrophy that comes with age.

“It might just be that Einstein’s brain was more like a young person’s brain in that sense,” said Tse. “A recent article has shown that the brain is like a muscle in the sense that neural circuits that are used often tend to change in their organization.” That, in turn, may lead to increases, or at least changes, in connective tissues such as the corpus callosum, he added.

“We should therefore not conclude that Einstein’s genius was caused by some part of his brain being slightly larger than average. It might be that his brain was slightly larger in these areas because he exercised these regions more than the average person.”

Hi Gonzalo, Ari, Upasika, Katherine, Kristin, Skywalker, and Cat

Ok, I have reviewed all of your work. Each one of you, in terms of what you have each identified as psychological/ medical correlations to the Mars/Uranus opposition in the 4th/10th houses, are all correct. Each of you has done the work you are doing very well. Skywalker asked if this could correlate with glaucoma and the answer is yes due to excessive water pressure/ build up in the system caused by stress.

Bravo to you all !

Our next step will be to put the Uranus/Mars opposition in the 4th/10th Houses in a sign to determine additional psychological/ medical correlations: to see if in so doing there are more potential issues that may occur.

So let's put Uranus in Virgo, and Mars in Pisces. What additional potentials could exist in so doing ?

If you have any questions please ask them of me now.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad and Everyone,

Thank you for the feedback! 

Going back to the post about Einstein's brain, I was just reading an interesting article about dyslexia.  At the end of the article, the author says it is thought, though not proven, that Einstein was dyslexic.  This article suggests that dyslexia may be a mind-brain evolutionary development.  You can read it here:

Hi Cat,

As a young person I also had a pretty intense form of dyslexia so my response to you comes from that place. I do not see it as a 'mind-brain' evolutionary development at all. To me, as are all things, when this occurs within a Soul there is their own individual evolutionary/ karmic need that is unique to each Soul. In other words, I do not see it as a general phenomena that correlates to some evolutionary development for the entire human species. So from an evolutionary astrology point of view the issue then becomes determining what the individual evolutionary/ karmic need is for a Soul to manifest any degree of dyslexia.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad

Thanks for the article on Einstein's brain. This article mentions the prefrontal cortex as the 'brain’s intellectual-command center'. Further, the prefrontal cortex, and within this, the orbitofrontal cortex, have been found to play a fundamental role in modulating the amygdala 'allowing for discernment of emotional reaction', being capable to 'override an alarm generated by the amygdala in order to reappraise the situation'. There are studies that link the levels of activity of this cortex, and its connections with the limbic brain, with psychopathy. I have looked at a couple of birthcharts of psychopaths serial killers with Mercury in the 4th House. This can imply, on one hand, thoughts that serve to suppress natural emotions such as empathy, kindness remorse and guilt, thus servig the psychopaths to maintain in ther linear defined cours of actions versus adapting the course of action/thoughts to the emotions that such course triggers (this occurs while at same time there is an overall difficulty in these guys to pursue goals that require step to step, sustained motivation, and, despite the currently proposed connection between psychopathy and ADHD); on the other hand, this can reflect a dynamic of being dominated by passions (amygdala, 4th House) and acting 'without thinking', thus, the connection between psychopathy and impulsive reactions. It is interesting that this area -prefrontal cortex-is not fully wired at birth. Its connections are very conditioned by early environment and 'education'. Is it correct to correlate these areas-prefrontal cortex and orbitofrontal cortex-both with Saturn and Mercury (and Uranus of course)?

I feel this can be an important clue for me to understand the role of Mercury from an emotional point of view.
Thanks so much Rad,
God Bless,
Gonzalo

Hi Gonzalo,

"Is it correct to correlate these areas-prefrontal cortex and orbitofrontal cortex-both with Saturn and Mercury (and Uranus of course)?"

********

For the prefrontal cortex I would suggest Saturn/Mercury as co-rulers with Uranus, and with the orbitofrontal cortex I would suggest Neptune (it's natural polarity being Mercury)/Saturn as co-rulers with Uranus.

Scientists discover DNA body clock

By Ian Sample, The Guardian
Sunday, October 20, 2013 20:27 EDT

A U.S. scientist has discovered an internal body clock based on DNA that measures the biological age of our tissues and organs.

The clock shows that while many healthy tissues age at the same rate as the body as a whole, some of them age much faster or slower. The age of diseased organs varied hugely, with some many tens of years “older” than healthy tissue in the same person, according to the clock.

Researchers say that unraveling the mechanisms behind the clock will help them understand the ageing process and hopefully lead to drugs and other interventions that slow it down.

Therapies that counteract natural ageing are attracting huge interest from scientists because they target the single most important risk factor for scores of incurable diseases that strike in old age.

“Ultimately, it would be very exciting to develop therapy interventions to reset the clock and hopefully keep us young,” said Steve Horvath, professor of genetics and biostatistics at the University of California in Los Angeles.

Horvath looked at the DNA of nearly 8,000 samples of 51 different healthy and cancerous cells and tissues. Specifically, he looked at how methylation, a natural process that chemically modifies DNA, varied with age.

Horvath found that the methylation of 353 DNA markers varied consistently with age and could be used as a biological clock. The clock ticked fastest in the years up to around age 20, then slowed down to a steadier rate. Whether the DNA changes cause ageing or are caused by ageing is an unknown that scientists are now keen to work out.

“Does this relate to something that keeps track of age, or is a consequence of age? I really don’t know,” Horvath told the Guardian. “The development of grey hair is a marker of ageing, but nobody would say it causes ageing,” he said.

The clock has already revealed some intriguing results. Tests on healthy heart tissue showed that its biological age – how worn out it appears to be – was around nine years younger than expected. Female breast tissue aged faster than the rest of the body, on average appearing two years older.

Diseased tissues also aged at different rates, with cancers speeding up the clock by an average of 36 years. Some brain cancer tissues taken from children had a biological age of more than 80 years.

“Female breast tissue, even healthy tissue, seems to be older than other tissues of the human body. That’s interesting in the light that breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Also, age is one of the primary risk factors of cancer, so these types of results could explain why cancer of the breast is so common,” Horvath said.

Healthy tissue surrounding a breast tumor was on average 12 years older than the rest of the woman’s body, the scientist’s tests revealed.

Writing in the journal Genome Biology, Horvath showed that the biological clock was reset to zero when cells plucked from an adult were reprogrammed back to a stem-cell-like state. The process for converting adult cells into stem cells, which can grow into any tissue in the body, won the Nobel prize in 2012 for Sir John Gurdon at Cambridge University and Shinya Yamanaka at Kyoto University.

“It provides a proof of concept that one can reset the clock,” said Horvath. The scientist now wants to run tests to see how neurodegenerative and infectious diseases affect, or are affected by, the biological clock.

“These data could prove valuable in furthering our knowledge of the biological changes that are linked to the ageing process,” said Veryan Codd, who works on the effects of biological ageing in cardiovascular disease at Leicester University. “It will be important to determine whether the accelerated ageing, as described here, is associated with other age-related diseases and if it is a causal factor in, or a consequence of, disease development.

“As more data becomes available, it will also be interesting to see whether a similar approach could identify tissue-specific ageing signatures, which could also prove important in disease mechanisms,” she added.

Hi Rad,

A fascinating article above about aging tissue. I find it particularly well timed here in the U.S. with it being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Thank you again Rad for all you share and give to this board.

With Gratitude, Kristin

Rad and group,

I recently did a reading for a client with a 4th house Mars/Uranus opposition signature. Uranus was in the 10th in Cancer and Mars in the 4th in Capricorn they make a T-square to Neptune 1st and Mercury 7th(although not exactly the same, it energetically mirrors our current example) - I found the trauma and accident frequency stunning. Will spare you all the fine details but it has been A wake up call life and all necessary for her Soul... ‘wrong place wrong time’ ..accident prone..extreme lack of physical balance as a result of the head injuries as well.

*She almost died 17 times from Klebsiella Pneumonia, an antibiotic resistant form of Pneumonia.
*9 bad falls, several were falls in ice/snow and hitting her head
*5 bad accidents with head injuries involved- included being hit be a truck that lost its brakes, also         being  hit by a drunk driver..
*When swimming in the middle of the Ocean in the Bahama region she was bitten 250 times by mosquitoes causing a respiratory virus that also nearly killed her.

***

Here are some further thoughts Uranus in Virgo in the 4th and Mars in Pisces in the 10th.

Highly compromised immune system due to persistent emotional stress and trauma. Immune system connects to Neptune/Pisces and with ongoing repeated emotional stress this can wear down the immune system and cause an increased susceptibility to the body breaking down and getting sick.

Exposure to metals, Capricorn/10th house/Saturn

Imbalance of Metals in the body.
Metals make vital functions like respiration, circulation and reproduction possible.

Cobalt, for instance, found at the core of vitamin B12, is key to making red blood cells, while iron allows those cells to ferry oxygen and other important chemicals to the body's tissues. Calcium not only strengthens bones but also plays a role in muscle, nerve function and blood clotting. Sodium and potassium help the heart and nerves communicate through electrical signals.

Exposure to too much metal can be harmful. But not getting enough metal in the right places can make us sick, too. This is the case with conditions such as iron-deficiency anemia and osteoporosis.

Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and verbal and non-verbal communication. Autistic children are known to express a lack of emotion but they are in fact highly emotional Souls. The inability to express this lack of emotion is due to unresolved trauma from another life. Uranus in Pisces in the 4th opposing Mars in Virgo in the 10th reflects this inability to express emote the emotion locked up within.

Mute - Mercury connects to the throat and throat chakra, Mercury rules Virgo. Uranus in Virgo opposing Mars can reflect the reason the Soul is mute is due to emotional trauma and this may also be sue to injury.

Loss of hearing due to an explosion. The anatomy of the ear connects with Mercury, Mercury being the ruler of Virgo.

Injury and/or trauma to the Spleen (Neptune) which helps to clean the blood and is part of the immune system. The contributes to the production and storage of blood cells as part of the circulatory system.

Injury and truama, Uranus opposing Mars, to bones in the feet, Pisces

Poor circulation to the feet, which is often referred to as peripheral vascular disease, is the result of a lack of oxygenated blood being pumped to the extremities (feet - Neptune/Pisces and hands Mercury /Virgo) of the body. Poor circulation has several possible causes and risk factors and produces several distinctive symptoms.

Someone experiencing insufficient blood circulation to the feet may feel a variety of sensations, including numbness, tingling or the sensation of pins and needles. Peripheral arterial occlusion, or hardening of the arteries, can cause hands and feet to feel numb, tingly, heavy or tense. If these symptoms occur, along with pain or leg cramps from a short walk, poor concentration and memory, impotence or frigidity, it is advised to seek medical evaluation because hardening of the arteries is considered by many to be America's number one killer. Buerger's disease, a condition brought on by chronic inflammation of the blood vessels in smokers, can also cause a tingling sensation in the toes. A number of other conditions can cause numbness in the feet, including diabetic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, a pinched nerve, rheumatoid arthritis and stroke, according to Dr. James Balch, author of "Prescription for Nutritional Healing."

Mars - Uranus 10/4 Pisces/Virgo Medical.

Uranus in Virgo in the fourth house can be in a perpetual state of emotional crisis repeated over and over again, with the consequence of traumatically fracturing the person mentally and emotionally. The person could have endured so much trauma/abuse/ridicule/criticism early on in this life or have subconscious memories of persecution and related dynamics from other lives, leading to a sense of inner paranoia and intense stress, which the person just wants to liberate from. The desire to liberate from intense and difficult emotional dynamics can lead the person to attempt to totally deny any type of vulnerability by denying any type of emotional expression or to express extremely intense emotions in unpredictable and defensive ways. 

Respiratory conditions such as shallow breathing can be a reflection of the persons subconscious attempt not to feel. Simply a coping mechanism to deal with the emotional trauma endured. Habits such as smoking can also be formed by these same dynamics.
 
Uranus in Virgo in the 4th house points to trauma based on cyclical crisis due to lack, with quite a potential for violence when opposing Mars. This can be a lack of many things ranging from food, to emotional nurturing, care, education, etc. Again, this has the effect of forcing the child upon himself and only himself to learn lessons of emotional self reliance and security from within.
A psychological condition that may manifest as a result is an inferiority complex. Also many personality disorders could manifest, depending on other chart factors and/or his personal karma/choices.

This placement shows potential for a huge inner void relative to emotional dynamics, where the person feels an inability to integrate emotionally in life in general due to a fractured personality. Eating disorders can be caused by this inner void, such as the desire to fill it up by over eating or being addicted to sugar or junk food. Another possibility is the attempt to always be busy one way or another in order to not face or fill up the inner void. This keeps the person in a perpetual state of crisis and as the crisis demands immediate attention, the person is simply avoiding the fact that there is an inner void.

All sorts of addictions and addictive behaviour are a possibility with this planetary combo, including sexual addictions or alcoholism/substance abuse.

As Mars is in Pisces, the stress that is created by these and other dynamics will have the effect of weakening the immune system, leaving the body susceptible to viral infections. High fevers are a possibility with this planetary combination as the body attempts to fight off viruses. Mars in Pisces opposing Uranus might also neglect it´s own needs or simply be oblivious to what to do in certain circumstances, thus not treating infections or colds properly, with the effect of them recurring and weakening the immune system even further while potentially damaging the lungs, trachea or bronchi. The constant “fight or flight” nature of this person is highly stressful, therefore also taxing the immune system. Mars in Pisces can also create all sort of fantasies and illusions that contribute to a state of depression when those illusions don´t pass the “acid test” and the individual is faced with a less than ideal reality.

Insomnia or other sleeping disorders are possible as Mars in Pisces correlates to the Pineal gland. The Pineal gland secretes Melatonin and is what regulates sleep, has antioxidant effects, has an effect on reproductive hormones. When the body does not rest well over a period of time due to Melatonin deficiency or other causes, there can be fatigue as a result, memory loss, depression, anxiety, loss of libido and a weakened immune system. Hypersensitivity to light due to Melatonin deficiency can cause severe headaches and migraines, the body may age faster as free radicals are not neutralised by antioxidants efficiently. Melatonin deficiencies may also contribute to neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis.

The Sympathetic/Parasympathetic nervous systems, also known as the Autonomic Nervous System, correlate to the Cancer, Virgo and Aquarius archetypes and respective houses and planets. Since there is stress between all the archetypes that correlate to this part of the nervous system, I would look there and to the whole nervous system for potential medical conditions. Also to the Limbic system for possible reasons for potential nervous conditions relative to emotional dynamics.

The ANS is a part of the nervous system that acts as a control system for the visceral functions of the body and regulates things like heart rate, perspiration, respiratory rate, salivation, sexual desire, digestion and more.

With this aspect there can be difficulty with the body regulating itself: for example a person who over perspires in situations where he gets nervous, or when in some sort of stressful situation one suddenly needs to use the toilet. If extreme, disorders of the ANS can become debilitating in many ways as the visceral functions that the ANS regulate can be easily thrown off balance by external stimulus or internal stress.

Hi Rad and Everyone,

I don't have a lot of spare time to devout to this right now, but managed to revamp by previous post, adding a bit of Pisces/Virgo to it:

mars in pisces the 10th opposition uranus in virgo in the 4th house

Here we have a man who potentially suffers from chronic stress or trauma caused by parental and social conditioning patterns that have led him to believe that in order to be accepted by others, he must abide by the norms of consensus society and work long and hard in order to get ahead.  He has been conditioned to believe that social status and his sociological role or career define who he is. Pressure from his parents, culture, society, and his own inner voice, which is a reflection of his conditioning, cause him to excessively strive to be a “success.”  His need and desire to achieve does not allow him to relax as he believes he has to work hard in order to gain peer recognition and parental and social approval.

Mars correlates to the Naval Chakra and the 10th House to the outer layer of the Root Chakra. With Mars in Pisces in the 10th House opposition Uranus in Virgo in the 4th House, this man may suffer from emotional stress caused by a weak vitality coupled with a tendency to over work. Stress causes him to become angry and instead of expressing his anger, he allows it to boil up inside.  At key points in his life, he is likely to explode over some little thing that has nothing to do with what is really bothering him, which is his pent up anger that has been brewing within him for a very long time.  He may become violent when he explodes or have an accident.

With Mars in Pisces, he may not possess a great deal of energy and his vitality may be low. Imbalances and stress  lead to tiredness or exhaustion, blood disorders, impotency, kidney or bladder problems, constipation, anemia, obesity, or lower back pain.  He may be susceptible to sudden fevers, colds and flus throughout his life. He may suffer from a vitamin B deficiency as well. 

There is the possibility that he may try to relax and relieve his stress through drugs or alcohol. Excessive drinking and alcoholism are strong possibilities and tie in with vitamin B deficiencies. These can lead to sugar aliments.  Hyperinsulinism (above normal levels of insulin) is another possibility.



Uranus correlates to the mid layer of the root chakra which correlates to the "messaging" taking place within his entire body.  Parental conditioning patterns are very strong and permeate every cell in his body. His thoughts and beliefs, which are a product of these parental conditioning patterns, have a great deal of influence on his physical health. 

With Uranus in Virgo in the 4th House, this man has a strong desire to break free and liberate himself from the parental conditioning patterns that rule him.  He tries to do so through his work and career but suffers from feelings of guilt when his desire to break free conflicts with the parental voices in his head.  This produces a great deal of emotional stress and tension within him which has a negative impact on his health.

The 4th house correlates to the 3rd Eye Chakra which correlates to the pineal gland.  He may suffer from migraine headaches due to the emotional stress and tension he experiences resulting from conflicting desires to be himself and to be the person his parents conditioned him to be. In addition, he is likely to have a hard time concentrating and suffer from confusion and negative feelings. On a physical level, this can all lead to neurological problems including strokes and brain tumors. Parkinson's Disease, seizures, spinal difficulties, and problems with the ears, eyes, and nose are possibilities as well. In addition, severe emotional stress may lead to the sudden onset of diabetes or hypoglycemia.  He may also suffer from intermittent sugar problems due to past life or early childhood trauma. Spasms and cramping in his intestinal tract are possibilities as well.

Connective tissue is made up of cells and protein fibers and provides support for other body tissues. The main proteins in connective tissue are collagen and elastin. There are five types of connective tissue. They are:

    Loose connective tissue: including adipose tissue (fat storage) which correlates with the Moon and Pluto
    Dense connective tissue which correlates with Pluto
    Blood which correlates with Mars, Venus and Pluto
    Bone which correlates with Pluto and Saturn
    Cartilage which correlates with Pluto and Saturn

Hi Rad,
Regarding dense connective tissue, would you ascribe any co-rulerships (Saturn?) to the following:

Fascia
Tendons
Ligaments
Aponeurosis
Dermis

Thank you so much!

Hi Rad,
Adding to my previous posts:  
Uranus in Virgo in the 4th
I would say of Uranus (higher octave, fixed, air, yang) in Virgo (lower octave, mutable, earth, yin) that with the strong mercurial resonance—thinking, communicating, processing internal & external stimuli and emphasis of an inward context, in the 4th (cardinal, water, yin) that this combination would make for a highly self-critical, sensitive, and generally insecure individual.  Specifically, on the mental and emotional levels, there could be an innate tendency toward avoidance, withdrawal, and disassociation.  This could easily lead to substance abuse of depressants or hallucinogens as a way to self-medicate.  Mental illness such as Borderline personality disorder reflects an unstable self-image, a sense of emptiness and inferiority, and a tendency to vacate. Mood disturbances such as ‘splitting’ (black and white thinking) peak in idealization and objectification, and pitch into devaluation and dismissal.  In extreme cases Schizophrenia where there are major imbalances of dopamine levels, also contributing to anxiety and depression. Delusions, disordered thoughts and speech, tactile, auditory, visual, olfactory, and gustory hallucinations, typically regarded as manifestations of psychosis. Impairment of the hippocampus, frontal, and temporal lobes during fetal development is a possible cause.  Hyperactive mental activity (depending on the structure of consciousness, relative intelligence, creative capacity, and familial support) could imply savant, high-functioning autism (Asperger’s—restrictive and highly repetitive interests and behavior) prodigious, or precocious capabilities. Energetically, the root and third eye chakras would be affected, furthering a sense of confusion regarding identity and clear guidance from within.  Physically, again stress, fatigue, difficultly resting, or dropping into REM sleep. Nervous ticks, twitches, shaky hands, headaches, ocular dehydration and degeneration.

Mars in Pisces in the 10th
Mars (cardinal, fire, yang) in Pisces (mutable, water, yin) in the 10th (cardinal, earth, yin) Again, a positive polarity planet in a yin sign and in a yin house… and in opposition. So, there is a consistent tension—albeit the Uranus configuration is analogous through rulership, Mars via mode.  This seems to echo a kind of disillusion, isolation, and suffering. Escape through fantasy, disassociation, and addiction.  Confusion and loss of identity seemingly transcended (spiritualized) through entertainment, drugs & alcohol, disconnected sex.  This reminds me of the riddle: what gets larger the more you take away?  Perhaps there could be the possibility of being an inspired musician or artist, a visionary on some level? Dreams needing to be documented. I’m not sure why I can’t think of a happy scenario for this man…why I’m getting a sense of struggle.  On the physical level, issues of the immune system and the blood e.g. sickle-cell anaemia, poor circulation, vasculitis, varicosity, thrombosis. The three lowest chakras (root, sacral, navel) would be prone to disrupting the others.  This would be a conscious choice to engage in pranic breath, vipassana meditation, or other practices that are both invigorating and grounding.
11/13 I am not sure how I forgot to mention the feet--lack of circulation, numbness, prone to injury etc.

God Bless,
Katherine

Hi Skywalker,

I was expecting this thread to keep going too but as more and more who originally said they wanted to contribute to it fell away, and as the time it was taking for those that were left to work on the segments increased, I decided it was done: enough. Personally, I am very disappointed about this. If you or others do have questions concerning the evolutionary medical astrology please feel free to ask.

The Moon and Cancer have their correlations which are not different at all. Where ever you find the Moon in the chart, or the sign Cancer, the correlations are the same. As we began to learn in this thread the specific houses and signs that any planet falls within, the archetypal correlations to that planet, are then added onto relative to the archetypal correlations of that house and/ or sign. So too with the planetary ruler of a house adding to to the core archetypes of the house itself.

Let me know if this is clear for you.

God Bless, Rad

Rad,

I was also disappointed about how the thread turned out but am thankful you are still willing to answer our questions. I think many people involved in the thread are just busy at the moment and might be a bit overwhelmed by the complexity of Medical Evolutionary Astrology. Personally I find it fascinating and hope to continue or resume at another time.

Yes that did answer my question, what I´m wondering is: in the example we studied with Mars/Uranus in the 4th/10th if we would then place the Moon conjunct Jupiter and in a trine aspect to Uranus, it would seem to counter or contradict the stress from Uranus in the 4th. What is confusing to me is that on one hand we might have a symbol of high stress levels and on the other a symbol of ease and comfort, all relative to emotional dynamics as it involves the Moon and the 4th house. The hard part seems to be exactly how it all plays out and effects the body but i´m starting to think that by using the EA paradigm, starting with Pluto and the Nodes, it would be a lot simpler to see potential medical conditions and why they manifest.

To me, in the example we studied, it would seem that the 4th house Uranus opposite Mars would be a stressful home environment that effected his emotional life but, the Moon with less stressful aspects would indicate that he did learn to cope emotionally or would choose to take the "high road" thus minimising some of the medical conditions that could arise or creating other conditions relative to the other aspects to the Moon. Is this approach correct?

Thank you!

Hi Rad,

I was hoping to learn a lot from this thread, and I have, but found that doing the very "simple" assignments was very difficult, not from an EA perspective, but from a "medical astrology" pov.  Although I have studied Holistic Nutrition, read about Alternative Medicine, herbs, homeopathic remedies, have taken courses in biology, anatomy etc etc, I found that "medical astrology" requires a lot more "medical" knowledge than I have.  Although you said it wasn't necessary, I found I had to look up and research different symptoms and diseases in order to do the assignments as it doesn't make sense writing about things that you don't really understand. I only posted what I honestly understand and nothing that I read about but do not know anything about (in terms of disease and health related issues).

I wanted to keep going, but I am kind of relieved you put an end to this.  I think if more people were well versed in the medical/anatomy aspect of this, things would have turned out differently.  I would love to follow this if anyone with that type of background keeps it going. I wish I was such a person, but I am not  :-)

Hi Rad,
I was extremely disappointed at this news.  This thread was the most supportive thing I have done to learn EA i.e. applying the paradigm which, I actually do not know how to do.  This was my first entry point to practicing astrology...  My knowledge and background have helped but, it's been my own drive to learn that got me through the hours of researching and hours of writing.  And rewriting.  Which, I was so happy to do!

Thank you for keeping the thread open to questions.

Hi Cat,
I'll accept the opportunities as they are available!
But I would not ask/expect that of Rad.

If you are giving a wholehearted effort to learn, how can your answers be trite?

My perspective is that a number of people here are afraid to be wrong on a public forum.  The shadow side of a good reputation...

I have nothing to lose.

Hi Rad,
I am on my way back..
I hope you have been well.

No other way to ask, I have a question regarding the shift from postpartum depression to postpartum psychosis, that is why do mothers kill their babies?

I have not found much about it, much less the root of WHY. Here's the basics of what I could find: The break that occurs (beyond the external fears of some 'other' force impacting and hurting the infant) can coincide with a kind of merging--the mother cannot distinguish herself from her child. To avoid the perceived loss of self, the mother may attempt suicide or, more frequently, attempt infanticide--"suicide by proxy".
Beyond that, the Medea complex is an extreme form of parental alienation syndrome / hostile aggressive parenting--vengeance toward the father via the child.
The allopathic treatment approach is anti-depressants and talk therapy or anti-psychotics and hospitalization.

There is definitely physical and physiological swing that occurs after birth that can trigger existing disorders like OCD, bipolar, etc. Estrogen and progesterone drop dramatically, hypothyroid could be associated, the conditioning -especially within western cultures- of a romanticized story of motherhood is dispelled by actual experience that proves unglamorous and painful. But infanticide can be found in other cultures, through time, and in other species. It seems like a "perfect storm" but what I really want to understand, on a deeper level, is how can the maternal instinct (which for some burns clear and bright, immediately) become so co-opted that the Death Mother emerges?  How and WHY does consciousness snap in this way? And I am having a hard time with the notion that it is a natural culling process.

(I have been doing my best to support someone going through this, for the last three months, and I would be so grateful for any insight you can provide.)

God bless,
Katherine

Hi Katherine,

First, welcome back ! I noticed you joined Ari's new thread for EA beginners. Good for you.

I have had a fair amount of cases dealing with this. The one common denominator that I have found is one wherein such Souls have this extreme form of feeling 'entrapped' because of the birth of a baby. For those of us who have raised kids/ babies we know the total commitment in time/ space that this requires. For these women who do this the entrapment fear is triggered almost immediately because of the natural demands of the newborn.

Of course the radical shift in all the various hormones that takes place within the women's body/ brain after birth, which occurs to all women, can then manifest in these women to intensify/ magnify an INTRINSIC fear of entrapment within them. In other words, this fear of entrapment relative to commitments would pre-exist  within these women's Souls due to prior life circumstances that come forwards into the current life, and/ or pre-exist BEFORE the birth of the baby that has been caused in the context of the current life.

Archetypically, the fear of entrapment correlates with Scorpio, the 8th House, and Pluto. Mothering of course correlates with Cancer, Scorpio, and the 8th house. Children as an archetype correlates with the 5th House, Leo, and the Sun. This is naturally square the 8th House, etc. Thus, for some Soul's this natural square triggers this entrapment fear wherein the women feels she will have no life of her own, her own specific purpose, other than the commitment to the child, and it's needs.

And given that the natural polarity for Cancer, the Moon, and the 4th House is Capricorn, the 10th House, and Saturn this specifically correlates with the post par-tum depression that almost all mothers experience to some degree. When combined with the entrapment fear this then correlates to feeling that their only 'role' in life is to raise the kid(s). Thus, the feeling of being 'blocked' from doing anything other than this mothering/ parenting role. 

This is not to say that this is the total answer to all this. It is the one common denominator that I have found.  

God Bless, Rad

Hi all,

Well I too recognised that Katherine seemed to have a much better general medical knowledge than most of us, and to me was writing very meaningfully on medical astrology which I certainly appreciated. I have a very basic knowledge of the body from a strictly medical point of view, and like Cat found it very limiting - I just felt I was trying to talk about something I have no idea of, and what was the point of that? Of course the value is in the effort but I felt I was just stabbing in the dark really - it just felt way over my head.

I did borrow a (huge) book on physiology and anatomy and started reading it. It was fascinating, and I was drawn into it for a whole day, during which time I read about 2% of it, and had a mind brimming with facts but no way of remembering them all, and the realisation this topic is HUGE. Much as I would have loved to continue I simply had no more time, and wont have time for that background reading in the foreseeable future. That's why I faded away.

But I would love to know how to do medical EA astrology, it fascinates me. So maybe sometime in the future I'll get a chance to finish reading that book and feel better equipped to have another go.

Hi Rad,
Way too long...  Thank you, I'm going to try.

And thank you for your response, which was so cogent and clear.  The square of Leo/Sun/5th to Scorpio/Pluto/8th and the opposition of Capricorn/Saturn/10th to Cancer/Moon/4th is evident to me now. (The piece about "suicide by proxy" and ego merging/ dissolve threw me off because the way it was described sounded insane and seemed to have a Neptunian delusional quality to it.)
The core feeling of entrapment (and the fear of entrapment) makes sense to me. So, in the (distorted) experience of being cornered it becomes a life or death situation to get out by any means... That makes any violence acted out toward the child very much a compulsion to eliminate the perceived source/cause of feeling utterly trapped in the role or function of being a mother. Psychotic rage in (irrational) self-defense.

To defend? Autonomy, 'freedom', more resources, more time... choice not linked to responsibility. How much do these murders, or volatile dynamics, point to an entrenched egocentric, narcissistic, or otherwise self-obsessed orientation in the mother's chart?

Thank you and,
God bless,
Katherine

In many of these cases that answer is quite a bit. On the other hand, I have also seen many women who are in incredibly abusive relationships with their partner wherein those partner's are control freaks who attempt to repress the individual needs/ development of these women. Thus, to have another baby, or even the first, triggers this underlying fear of entrapment even further with the resulting, and all consuming, depression that can lead to the killing of the baby and/ or other children that are already in place.

Hi Rad,
Yes, definitely. Thanks. Filicide as a desperate revenge and escape tactic... makes my chest hurt.
In situations where the father is not abusive or covertly manipulative (maybe not a great help, but also not a danger or significant source of stress) could the mother's narcissistic tendencies be likened to a pilot light and the physical and psychological shifts be the gas? (I know this is overly simplified, I just want to understand the dynamic in terms timing and root cause.)
If so, it would pull this segment out of the Medical thread. So, to wrap this up, the person/ reason why I brought this topic forward has been diagnosed with OCD but nothing is being done in her US medicine treatment plan of prescriptions and talk therapy to look at the extent of self-obsession that is her personal framework.
I don't have permission to post the chart, or I would. But I want to provide a small piece... in the 2nd house: Mars in Libra conjunct 10deg to Pluto in Scorpio which is 2deg from the South Node in Scorpio which is less than a degree from the Moon in Scorpio. (Pluto-SN-Moon has a total range of 2 degrees and 50 minutes)

Hi Upasika,
Um, thanks. And, I hear you. When researching becomes a task, especially with an elusive or ambitious aim, it becomes very difficult to create momentum.  Huge books are enthralling when you are motivated, but they become arduous when you are not. The left brain can be forced but, long term recall can be hazy and, sometimes negligible compared the time invested.  Trust: I have had my experiences with this, and the attendant feelings of overwhelm!

For you, and those who have a desire to learn EA medical astrology, as I do!, there can be many other ways toward understanding that you can practice (perhaps even daily) without enervation.  For example, for those who have been following the Neptune thread, for those who meditate and/or have a pranayamic practice (like the hong sau practice Wolf taught) start with the experience of the breath. Or, as an intellectual curiosity: why can't we choke ourselves to death? --> The properties and effects of oxygen link to the mechanics of respiration, as regulated by the brainstem, which is ruled by Pluto, which leads into the inconjunct of Aries to Scorpio, and the original anxiety of separation… and you’re right back into EA with an understanding of the human experience that you will carry with you through every session

Really, any seemingly inane interest you have in the body e.g. ‘I love receiving foot massage’, ‘Tape worms… ew.’ whatever, becomes an inroad to learning that feels natural.  So I would encourage you, and everyone, to find something about your experience in physical form that makes you wonder... and then chase it.

Or, you can wait for that big book to call again.
Either way, I wish you, and everyone who is making an effort known or unknown, all the best in learning EA. Godspeed.

God bless,
Katherine

Well ... I'm certainly motivated - my issue currently is more just not having the time. But I also get your point, that one can approach learning medical EA based on personal intuitive observation as an alternative to factual knowledge, that makes sense too, and I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

Hi Rad,

I would like to ask what correlates with orgasms. I assume physical orgasm correlates with Mars and an energetic/tantric orgasm with Pluto? Also is it the same for men and women?

Thank you

All the best

Hi Skywalker,

Orgasms correlate with Pluto in general. Then from that baseline you can correlate additionally to 'types' of orgasms. For example, orgasms that take place at night, during sleep, would be Neptune/Pluto. Tantric sex correlates to the principle of evolution which is specific to Pluto yet would also be linked to Neptune because of the root dynamic in this being using sex as a vehicle to unite with the Source. Orgasms that occur strictly for procreational purposes would be a link with Pluto and Venus. And so on.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

First, welcome back, I´m glad t know your health is better, let´s hope it stays good.

Second, I´d like to ask if you recommend any natural herbs or remedies for PTSD and anxiety, something that can help one look at the causes of the traumas from a relaxed and thus more detached place. I was thinking something like Valerian root?

All the best,

Skywalker

Hi Skywalker

That is a good choice as well as marijuana, an American Indian herb called Damiana which has some thc in it, complex B with anti-stress additives, magnesium, and affective meditation and yoga.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,
Thanks for your list. Do you know of any breathing techniques to induce meditation or regression?
And Skywalker,
I really appreciate the wording or your question, if there are
any natural herbs or remedies for PTSD and anxiety, something that can help one look at the causes of the traumas from a relaxed and thus more detached place. I was thinking something like Valerian root?

In reference to marijuana, Rad posted something a while back: http://schoolofevolutionaryastrology.com/forum/index.php?topic=268.msg15626;topicseen#msg15626 (http://schoolofevolutionaryastrology.com/forum/index.php?topic=268.msg15626;topicseen#msg15626)
So, I thought you both might be interested in the recent research on the effects of non-psychoactive Cannabidiol aka CBD vs. psychoactive Tetrahydrocannabinol aka THC.
Briefly, THC has been shown to have negative i.e. aggravating effects for those living with autism, schizophrenia, bi-polar and other mood imbalances. Recently, CBD has been indicated for those disorders specifically, plus epilepsy, anxiety and stress, and has a universal effect i.e. across all ages and study groups to have a calming and relaxing effect on the mind-body. So, it seems currently, that for those who don't have 'issues' THC offers all its beneficial qualities (and good times) but for those who do, it makes their experiences worse.  For CBD, it seems to accommodate all and is alleviating to those with neurological conditions.

But, I guess my questions regard the emotional body? Does CBD actually help PTSD move toward cohesion and integration, or is it numbing and a furtherance of disassociation? What would be the most effective means of administration: before, during, or after therapy?
(Everybody in the pool!)

Hi Katherine,

I was asking about herbs that are natural, easy to find and legal. For those that are in a place where Cannabis is legal or de-criminalized, it can be a way to go.

I would say that in order to keep things simple, if someone were to be using Medical MJ to help with these issues, that they should probably try various different plants/strains and see which one is better for their specific needs. Also remembering that each plant is a specific "individual" in its own right and that each one will have its own character and unique combination of compounds. Therefore the phenotype is also as important when looking for what a person may need.

Cannabis/Marijuana in my understanding, has many different compounds that can alter and modulate its effects besides THC or CBD.

Relative to how to administer, I think it will depend on each unique case as some people may use it as a mood stabilizer on a constant basis, while others in more of a specific way, due to specific causes such as insomnia, apetite stimulant, muscle relaxation, depression and so on, the list is quite extensive for what this plant can help with.

Relative to the whole THC and paranoia or schizophrenia, I think that Cannabis is also a mild psychedelic and probably due to the THC content or the ratio in which THC is in relation to other compounds, can amplify these latent issues which are already within an individual, just like a psychedelic can do.

"But, I guess my questions regard the emotional body? Does CBD actually help PTSD move toward cohesion and integration, or is it numbing and a furtherance of disassociation? What would be the most effective means of administration: before, during, or after therapy?"

To answer your question, again, I think it would need to be decided on a case by case basis. The main idea would be to reach a state of inner comfort and peace, in order to look objectively at the issues which caused the trauma in the first place and to reach a point in which the person is O.K. with whatever happened, to process. Sometimes just being able to relax and be in a peaceful state can be healing as PTSD and anxiety can keep a person in a constant state of stress which does not allow for the healing to take place. I don´t think if used correctly, with the desire to heal, that one would disassociate so easily.

Below is a chart with some of the compounds within the Cannabis plant and their uses.

All the best

Yep, in the US CBD oils (from industrial hemp) are legal in places where marijuana and all forms of THC are illegal.

Yep, cannabinoids number into the high eighties. And of course, selection is a personal and an experience-based process, relative to individual needs. Homework for each individual; off the MB...

Yep, THC is psychoactive and also a hallucinogen. It will interfere with consciousness i.e. mental capacities, feelings and emotional well being, for those susceptible. Which is why I posted those links. Also, it just occurred to me that I did not mention or post anything about the Autism spectrum, but I do know that it is being called into question re: the efficacy of THC.

My bad for posting a rhetorical question.  Full stop.
Speculation is just speculation.

Below is a chart with some of the compounds within the Cannabis plant and their uses.

I love charts. I want everything to be in a chart. (e.g. Geneaology of the characters in the Mahābhārata? Very useful.) But the problem with charts is that they are images built in fancy programs that don't get updated and just drift around the internet forever. I appreciated that you posted it, but it shows THC indicated for Bipolar and Depression. That's is not what recent research suggests.  My whole intention of my last post on this thread is to clarify that marijuana and its various constituents can be helpful with PTSD and Anxiety, but maybe, we might want to be conscious of what issues may or may not be present, before choosing a treatment path.  Being that it is the “Medical Thread” just thought we could be as accurate as possible for those who will read here now, and in the future.
I’ll close with a quote I really like that feels relevant here:

 “Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest — thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.”  —  Beau Taplin

God bless,

Katherine

Help,

This message board has a variety of rules that are spelled out on the first page where it says 'if this is your first visit to the message board'. On of those rules is this: 3) Policy on personal chart interpretation and analysis:

Hi Pareen,

I would suggest you contact an astrologer in the USA named Eileen Nauman who is one of the best medical astrologers in the world. She has written several books on medical astrology that you can find on amazon.com. I have no idea how to contact her though. I am sure if you dig around you can find out how to do so.

God Bless, Rad
