I met a woman, who has given me permission to post her chart and ask about this, who has parkinsons disease and I am just wanting to understand more clearly the ea correlations to that.



From wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkinson's_disease

Parkinson's disease (also known as Parkinson disease, Parkinson's, idiopathic parkinsonism, primary parkinsonism, PD, or paralysis agitans) 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 substantia nigra, a region of the midbrain; the cause of this cell death is unknown. Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, cognitive and behavioural problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep and emotional problems. PD is more common in the elderly, with most cases occurring after the age of 50.
The main motor symptoms are collectively called parkinsonism, or a "parkinsonian syndrome". Parkinson's disease is often defined as a parkinsonian syndrome that is idiopathic (having no known cause), although some atypical cases have a genetic origin. Many risk and protective factors have been investigated: the clearest evidence is for an increased risk of PD in people exposed to certain pesticides and a reduced risk in tobacco smokers. The pathology of the disease is characterized by the accumulation of a protein called alpha-synuclein into inclusions called Lewy bodies in neurons, and from insufficient formation and activity of dopamine produced in certain neurons within parts of the midbrain. Lewy bodies are the pathological hallmark of the idiopathic disorder, and the distribution of the Lewy bodies throughout the Parkinsonian brain varies from one individual to another. The anatomical distribution of the Lewy bodies is often directly related to the expression and degree of the clinical symptoms of each individual. Diagnosis of typical cases is mainly based on symptoms, with tests such as neuroimaging being used for confirmation.
Modern treatments are effective at managing the early motor symptoms of the disease, mainly through the use of levodopa and dopamine agonists. As the disease progresses and dopaminergic neurons continue to be lost, these drugs eventually become ineffective at treating the symptoms and at the same time produce a complication called dyskinesia, marked by involuntary writhing movements. Diet and some forms of rehabilitation have shown some effectiveness at alleviating symptoms. Surgery and deep brain stimulation have been used to reduce motor symptoms as a last resort in severe cases where drugs are ineffective. Research directions include investigations into new animal models of the disease and of the potential usefulness of gene therapy, stem cell transplants and neuroprotective agents. Medications to treat non-movement-related symptoms of PD, such as sleep disturbances and emotional problems, also exist.

About dopamine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dopamine
Quote
In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other nerve cells. The human brain uses five known types of dopamine receptors, labeled D1, D2, D3, D4, and D5. Dopamine is produced in several areas of the brain, including the substantia nigra and the ventral tegmental area.
Dopamine plays a major role in the brain system that is responsible for reward-driven learning. Every type of reward that has been studied increases the level of dopamine transmission in the brain, and a variety of highly addictive drugs, including stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine, act directly on the dopamine system.[2] There is evidence that people with extraverted (reward-seeking) personality types tend to show higher levels of dopamine activity than people with introverted personalities. Several important diseases of the nervous system are associated with dysfunctions of the dopamine system. Parkinson's disease, an age-related degenerative condition causing tremor and motor impairment, is caused by loss of dopamine-secreting neurons in the substantia nigra. Schizophrenia has been shown to involve elevated levels of dopamine activity in the mesolimbic pathway and decreased levels of dopamine in the prefrontal cortex.[3][4] Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is also believed to be associated with decreased dopamine activity.[5]

So it seems that parkinsons is a disease relating to the nervous system, linked to the death of dopamine cells in the Substantia nigra (which I simply don't understand yet) - dopamine being a neurotransmitter that is responsible for nerve cells sending signals to other cells.

So it seems that parkinsons is related to Gemini/Aquarius - both ruling the nervous system. In this chart that seems to be clearly indicated with Uranus in gemini in the 11th squaring the sn in Aquarius and that Uranus ruled by Mercury also squaring that sn.

Also the physiology of the brain is 10th house, Saturn. So is the parkinsons predominately linked to Mercury (nerves) in the 10th squaring the nodes or is it the total combination of the Aquarian signatures with the Mercury?
Thank you,
Love, am

Hi Ari,

The physiology of the brain is Uranus, Aquarius, and the 11th house. The brain, of itself, is also these archetypes that then have other planetary, sign, house correlations. For example, proteins in the brain such as dopamine correlate with Scorpio, the 8th House, and Pluto. Thus, you can see the signature for Parkinson's disease relative to planets in the 11th, S.Node in Aquarius, and the dopamine problem linked with her Scorpio moon inconjuncting exactly her Uranus, and squaring her Pluto in the 12th. This is then restated with her Mars in Pisces in the 8th also squaring her Uranus, exact, and inconjuncting her Pluto, and a ten degree conjunction to her S.Node.

God Bless, Rad
