Health and Wellbeing Report

 

 

Introduction

 

Medical astrology is a complex branch of the astrologer's art. Many factors need to be taken into account when considering the overall health of the individual.

 

This report aims to give you a picture of some of the astrological indicators in the horoscope that correspond with your health and wellbeing.

 

The information in this report includes an assessment of your natal chart specifically focussing on health related matters. It includes a range of nutritional advice, stress management tips and therapy options. However, it is not intended that this report be used in place of a consultation with a qualified medical practitioner, nor persons qualified in complementary or alternative healing. It is vital to always seek out professional medical and nutritional advice where one's health is concerned.

 

This report aims to provide you with some useful tips about physical health matters and also about mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. This information is based on the author's own knowledge obtained over more than 25 years as an astrologer and healer as well as additional research she has undertaken. The main focus of this report is to point out the astrological indicators that can manifest as health problems, or imbalances, and to suggest possible causes and/or treatments that might be of benefit.

 

If a particular theme appears to come up more than once in several different sections, it is worthy of special attention. Likewise, if there seems to be contradictions between some sections, this doesn't necessarily mean that they cancel each other out; both are probably applicable at different times, or under different circumstances.

 

In reading this report, please take into account that some factors are more powerful and obvious than others. For example, the Sun, the Moon, the Ascendant and any planets in the 1st House, should probably be given more weight in the overall interpretation, than say, aspects to the 6th house, or Chiron's position.

 

Be aware too, that our natal chart is not a static thing. It is a symbolic representation of our potential, which unfolds and develops as we journey through life.

 

Disclaimer

 

Essential oils should not be used full strength and never swallowed. They should be diluted with water, or suitable carrier oil such as almond oil, before use. Do your own research before using essential oils. Certain oils are not recommended for some conditions and some can be harmful and/or toxic. There are a number of contra-indicators to be aware of when using essential oils. Some people are sensitive to particular oils, although the pure, top quality oils are less likely to result in allergic reactions. The author takes no responsibility for any adverse reactions caused.

 

The information in this report is offered as a guide to health. The author takes no responsibility for the specific use or application of information presented here, nor for any unwanted effects encountered, nor any effects encountered by not seeking medical advice. Do not attempt self-treatment for serious health conditions.

 

Your Basic Health Needs

 

 

Your General Temperament

 

The overall balance of elements and modes is connected with our general attitudes and perspective and shows whether our values, point of view and style of expression are particularly focussed towards certain qualities and tendencies of temperament, or whether there is some under-emphasis of certain qualities. The balance of elements and modes also relates to one's overall constitution. Where there is too much, or too little, of any element or mode, there can be a corresponding imbalance that we consciously need to address, in order to bring about emotional, spiritual, mental and physical healing.

 

Element Fire is Weak

You may have a weaker constitution than most and may lack energy, enthusiasm or vitality. You can benefit from including spicy food and blood-stimulating food in your diet. The colour red can help to speed up your metabolism, this includes eating red foods, wearing red clothing and other forms of colour therapy. Your system can also benefit from regular vitamin and mineral supplements. If you make an effort to exercise more, your circulation and energy levels will actually increase, but go at your own pace. Positive thinking can also enhance you your motivation.

 

Element Water is Strong

Your emotional wellbeing plays a vital role in your overall health. Try not to head for food or alcohol when you are under emotional stress. When you are not feeling supported and nurtured, you can be prone to depression and weight gain. Finding ways and means to establish harmonious relationships and supportive connections is important for you. So too is having an outlet for your highly developed imagination. With an abundance of water, you are a sensitive person and you can be prone to drink too much alcohol, or to seek solace in drugs. Try to face up to the reality of your situation without fear. Too much water can also be associated with mental illnesses and emotional disorders. Grounding earthy colours and activities can make a real difference. Learning how to handle your responsibilities by undertaking practical training can also help you as having a strong framework or structure can help you recognise your boundaries. When you are feeling positive about yourself and your world, you are a caring and nurturing person who can contribute substantially to the wellbeing of others. When you are feeling down, try to talk things through with someone close. Try to remember that you are loved, no matter what. Bright, happy colours such as red, orange and bright yellow can uplift your spirits.

 

Mode Mutable is Strong

Mutable energy is associated with communication and change. With an excess of mutable energy, you are highly adaptable. Because of these flexible qualities, you generally cope with stress much better than either strongly cardinal or highly fixed types, but at the same time you are prone to picking up infections and passing viruses. When you are stressed, it mainly comes from an inner state of worry, boredom, and a lack of purpose or meaning, or from trying to do too much at once. These are things you can change by altering your attitude. Your energy can be a bit scattered and although you are highly versatile, you may need to develop a little more consistency, which can help to stabilise your inherently restless nature.

 

Your Emotional Health

 

The Moon symbolises our capacity to give and receive nurturing. Our feelings, emotions and personal inner life all relate to the Moon, as does food and nutrition. Our emotional wellbeing often relates to inherited patterns of behaviour from our parents and/or defence mechanisms that we learnt in childhood. The sign in which the Moon is located will describe the way in which our need for nurturing and emotional security is sought and met. As adults, we still have a child within us that continues to seek comfort and protection.

 

The Moon is in Libra

Your emotional wellbeing comes primarily from human relationships of all kinds. You may not cope well with being on your own. Sometimes you are too dependent on others and can fall into the pattern of agreeing with others when you really do not want to. Your peace-loving and highly charming personality naturally shines forth, so you do not have to bend over backwards to make a good impression; indeed doing so can be counter-productive because it can appear to others that you are being dishonest as to your motives. Mostly, personal relationships are enormously satisfying to you and although you tend not to forge deeply intense emotional connections, you shine in social situations and enjoy networking which also brings you warm feelings of emotional wellbeing and comfort. When relationships falter, this can cause you a great deal of emotional pain and stress, so try to honour yourself more and recognise that your worth as a person is not dependent on the opinions of others.

 

Your Vitality and Wellbeing

 

 

Your Spiritual Essence

 

The Sun plays a vital role in matters of health. The Sun governs physical stamina and vitality. We get Vitamin D directly from the Sun, and a lack of exposure to sunshine can lead to a host of illnesses including seasonal depression, especially for those who live in extreme latitudes.

 

The Sun sign will often describe our manner of self-expression. It can also reveal information about our physical type and the kinds of ailments that can affect us, including parts of the body that are affected by stress and genetically inherited conditions.

 

The Sun sign represents the essence of who we are. It is largely associated with our sense of identity. As we move through life and learn more about ourselves, we tend to become more like our Sun sign.

 

Early in life, the Sun sign is more likely to express itself as ego. Later in life, as we come to know ourselves, our self-expression becomes more developed. Jung's concept of the 'Self' is also associated with the Sun sign, which begins to emerge as we develop and mature. As we move through life, we move away from purely ego expression, towards a more comprehensive style of self-expression.

 

Stress can manifest according to the sign in which the Sun is placed and this can affect our wellbeing and health. For example, when our ego expression is thwarted, if we lack confidence, or are fearful about expressing ourselves.

 

As we get to know ourselves and develop more fully, we become more conscious and aware, so our Sun sign shines ever more brightly.

 

The Sun is in Pisces

You are a sensitive and highly creative person. Sometimes you find it difficult to cope with the stress of daily living and the way the world is structured. You may want to escape from the harsh realities you see around you.

 

It is important that you embrace a meaningful life philosophy that will bring you a sense of purpose and fulfilment. Feeling isolated or alone, or wanting to escape can lead you to indulge in alcohol or drugs, which numbs your pain, but this is a short-term fix and not a healthy option to follow. You are probably very sensitive to drugs and alcohol and you can easily develop addictions.

 

It is important for you to foster a feeling of belonging, which will enhance your sense of wellbeing. Role-playing, art therapy, Reiki, meditation, reflexology and spiritual healing are some possible avenues to explore when you feel lost or uncertain of yourself. Find an outlet for your imagination and express yourself creatively. Let your dreams and ideals guide you. You are most likely quite gifted in the arts. Doing something practical with your talents can be healing too.

 

Swimming and water sports, fishing, or just living near the water, will replenish your soul, as will music and art. Developing a set of personal values and sticking to them will help ground you. This will limit negative influences from affecting you in ways that are detrimental to your wellbeing. You are a sensitive soul who understands a great deal. Forging an identity by embracing the arts, or spiritual concepts, will alleviate any tendency to escape into substance abuse, or other self-destructive habits that can impact on your health. You may be especially sensitive to certain foods, chemicals or drugs. Pay attention to what you are putting into your body.

 

Treat yourself now and again to an aromatherapy footbath or massage. For Athlete's Foot try a blend of Eucalyptus, Lavender, Tea Tree and Thyme. To alleviate depression try a massage with Neroli, Clary Sage, Sandalwood, Bergamot or Ylang Ylang. To soothe feelings of confusion, try Lemon or Cypress.

 

Your Vitality - The Life Force

 

The position of the Sun has a great deal to say about one's overall constitution, vitality and health. The house in which the Sun is placed corresponds directly with the time of day that you were born. Generally speaking, a person born during the day is thought to have a more powerful and dynamic solar energy and to be more extraverted and direct in their manner of self-expression, than someone born during the night, when the individual is thought to have a more subtle or refined expression, and to be capable of more introspection.

 

If you were born at sunrise, or in the middle of the day, the Sun is at its greatest strength and your solar forces are very powerful. As well as the house in which the Sun is placed, consider the Sun's sign and the aspects it makes to other planets, all of which will provide more clues to the overall picture of health. As well as vitality and energy, the Sun governs one's identity, creativity and self-expression. Without the Sun there is no life. Therefore, the relative position of the Sun says a great deal about the type of energy and life force that we possess.

 

The Sun is in the 6th House

You are a very hard worker and like to do everything to the best of your ability. Your self-identity is largely determined by your work or job. You may be prone to digestive complaints or assimilation disorders, metabolic problems, or burnout, especially if you feel unhappy in your occupation, or daily routine. Also make sure you watch what you eat, as you may be sensitive to particular foods. Most importantly, find an enjoyable job and change your routine once in a while, which will have an enormously positive effect on your wellbeing.

 

Your attitude has a large bearing on your overall health and happiness. You often worry about your health and have a tendency towards hypochondria. As you learn to go with the flow of life and discover more about yourself, you will find that you can stop trying to be perfect and just enjoy living. This will improve your general outlook and health. You were born just after sunset, when the Sun's rays are beginning to retreat at dusk, signifying that you are highly analytical and trying to make sense of your experiences. For this reason, you need to spend time alone on a regular basis, but don't isolate yourself too much from others. You set very high standards for yourself and like to be self-sufficient, but you can be overly focussed on attaining perfection, which you never reach. Try not to put yourself under so much pressure. Learn to laugh more and make time to relax away from work. Try yoga, golf, Tai Chi or bushwalking.

 

Managing the Physical Demands of Living

 

When challenging relationships are formed between the Sun and other planets, this can relate to internal and external stress factors that can lead to health problems, if ways are not found to balance their energies. The Sun is a vital component of life and vitality. These aspects can be potent indicators of one's overall health and wellbeing.

 

Magnesium, Iodine, Vitamin A and Vitamin D are ruled by the Sun. A deficiency or incorrect assimilation of any of these minerals and vitamins can be the cause of health problems when there are difficult aspects involving the Sun.

 

Also consider those vitamins and minerals that are associated with the planet involved in the challenging aspect with the Sun, for this too may provide clues as to potential deficiencies, that when brought into balance, can aid healing.

 

These challenging aspects involving the Sun can also symbolise aspects of our internal psychology that we need to integrate, so that they flow with more ease and work for us, rather than fighting with them, for we are really only fighting with ourselves.

 

Mercury is Conjunct The Sun

It is possible that you might have some health problems with the various tubes of the body, such as bronchial tubes, sinuses or inner ear. Intestinal problems or digestive complaints are also possible, as are disorders of the nervous system. Both respiratory conditions and digestive complaints may be associated with an underlying allergic response to certain foods, or air-borne substances such as pollen or dust. Some of these symptoms may be brought on by too little thiamine (B1) in your diet. Thiamine deficiency can also result in nervous complaints and even nerve damage. You may find it difficult to switch off your mind and rest. Communication problems are also possible with this combination such as learning difficulties or dyslexia, but most of the health problems that involve Mercury are temporary and can be effectively addressed. Ensure that you get plenty of B-group vitamins.

 

Mars is Conjunct The Sun

You are a highly dynamic person and tend to expend a great deal of energy in all you do. You are probably quite driven and very active. You may take risks and enjoy experiencing adrenaline highs that come with adventure. Accidents are possible, including possible broken bones and head injuries, particularly if you are given to be too hasty or impatient.

 

It is vital to ensure you have enough stores of physical energy to call upon. Iron, Cobalt, Chlorine, Folic Acid, Molybdenum, Selenium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Fatty Acids and Vitamin B12 are associated with energy and vitality. If your energy wanes it is important to investigate any potential deficiency of these minerals and vitamins. Magnesium and Iodine and Vitamin D are also vital. You sometimes tend to overdo things and push yourself to the absolute limit. As a result you are open to a range of potential problems such as cardiovascular ailments, high blood pressure, inflammation, acid-alkaline imbalance, headaches, migraines and fevers, or blood disorders such as anaemia, from too little iron. Vitamin and mineral supplements can assist, but also try to eat the correct foods and don't go overboard with alcohol.

 

Because you are dynamic and driven, you can also be explosive at times and anger can be the root cause of some of these conditions. Anger management can go a long way towards a return to health. Calming, soothing and relaxing activities are probably something you don't have time for, but they are necessary and vital to your overall wellbeing.

 

Stress can manifest in other ways too. Adrenal exhaustion, sexual problems, and chronic fatigue can occur. But all these conditions are more likely if you ignore symptoms and continue to overdo things when you should rest and recuperate.

 

Pluto is Conjunct The Sun

You are both strong and also sensitive, yet you tend to hide your sensitivity from others. You can cope with an enormous amount of stress, but actually the effects of stress can build up internally and have a cumulative effect that only becomes apparent at a later time. A range of potential health problems can come your way as a result of stress build-up, so effective management of stress is quite vital for you. Health problems can include thyroid conditions, which could develop because of a lack of iodine, or there may be muscular conditions related to a magnesium deficiency. You could also experience health issues involving the reproductive organs and genetically inherited conditions could also be part of your experience. Mental illnesses such as depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, and other similar conditions are also possible, and even life-threatening diseases. It could be that a close family member is the person who encounters some of these problems, rather than yourself, nevertheless these encounters will have a profound effect upon your own psychology. Some of this might sound bleak, but no matter what comes you way in life, you possess a powerful will and a strong determination to overcome any challenges, and that includes serious illness. You are a survivor. You recognise that your attitude goes a long way towards healing. You may be transformed in some way by your experiences and your life can be a series of endings and beginnings. Do not fear this process. Nor should you fear your own powerful psyche, which is capable of incredible achievements. Your strength and your sensitivity can work together. Healing techniques such as psychotherapy and associated treatments can be most beneficial for you.

 

Your Health Factors

 

 

Your Physical Body and Energy

 

The Ascendant is one of the most important factors to consider in determining one's overall health. The sign on the Ascendant governs the physical body and one's immediate environment. It represents the interface between spirit and matter. The Ascendant often describes our physical appearance and the way we interact with others. The rising sign is usually quite obvious; often more so than the Sun sign. The concept of the "persona" is thought to be associated with the Ascendant. This is the "mask" we wear, or the face that we show to the world and therefore the Ascendant sign corresponds to characteristics that are immediately apparent. The sign on the Ascendant also describes areas of the body where we might feel the effects of any stress that we encounter in our interaction with the world around us. The Ascendant will often describe those health conditions that manifest as a result of short-term stress. This area of the horoscope corresponds with acute health conditions and the stress we encounter when we are trying to fit in, or trying to put our best side forward, to the detriment of our true nature.

 

The Ascendant is in Virgo

You tend to be a perfectionist. You are highly knowledgeable about health matters and perhaps have a deep interest in healing. Most likely you are aware of the need to eat well and exercise regularly. But at times you can be too intent on these matters, perhaps you desire to have a perfect body, or are overly focussed on germs, cleanliness or illness, you may also be prone to hypochondria. It is important for you to have an ordered environment and you are very good at being disciplined with diet and exercise. At times you can take things too far. This can result in eating disorders and poor self-image. Your tendency to worry can lead to stress related problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders, digestive problems, food allergies, constipation, diarrhoea, hay fever, hypoglycaemia or diabetes, and a range of other conditions.

 

Let go of trying to be perfect and try to change your scenery once in a while. You may worry unnecessarily about your health. What underpins this concern is perhaps a deep-seated fear and dislike for being dependent on anyone. Self-sufficiency is a noble ideal, but again, you can sometimes take this to extremes. Worry and stress can produce its own symptoms. Learning to relax is important for you. Yoga or meditation may be helpful. Don't take things too far in your quest for physical perfection. Perfection doesn't mean working yourself into the ground.

 

You are happy in your own company most of the time and can get stressed by the imperfections you encounter in others, or in the world around you. Learning to relax and worrying less will make you happier and healthier.

 

Aromatherapy oils useful for relaxation and to reduce anxiety and tension include: Lavender, Lemongrass, Cedarwood, Camomile and Basil. Herbs and oils to heal digestive upsets, to which you are sometimes prone, include Fennel and Peppermint. For colds, flu and sinus complaints try Eucalyptus, Tea Tree or Peppermint chest rubs and inhalation.

 

Your Strengths and Sensitivities

 

The first house and the Ascendant are associated with the physical body. The Ascendant is the place of interface between the physical and spiritual realms.

 

The Ascendant also describes one's immediate environment and general physical type. Planets in the first house and in particular those that are in conjunction with the Ascendant, are considered to be very strong. These planets tell us something more about our physical appearance, vitality and manner of expression.

 

Any planets that make a conjunction to the Ascendant are especially powerful. These planets and any that are located in the first house should be taken into consideration when assessing your physical attributes and health.

 

Planets located here represent energies that are generally operating very consciously and their qualities are usually quite apparent to others too.

 

These planets will modify the expression of the Ascendant sign, and in some cases may seem to contradict it, but taken together you will probably strongly identify with both the Ascendant sign and any planets in the first house.

 

The Moon is in the 1st House

You are a sensitive and highly aware individual. This sensitivity applies to certain foods, chemicals and/or drugs and it is important that you find a way to protect yourself from taking on the psychic content of others, which can actually make you unwell. Expressing your feelings is important for you and doing so will help you maintain optimum health. On the other hand, bottling up your emotions will likely make you sick. If you can't get things off your chest directly, then try writing them down, you will soon feel better. You might be prone to psychosomatic illnesses, which are more likely when you are feeling emotionally out of sorts and cannot pinpoint the exact reason for any feelings of unease. Wearing moonstone can help to balance your hormonal levels.

 

Your intuition and imagination are highly developed, so it is important you heed your instincts, especially during times of stress. Rest when you feel the need to. From time to time you may need to withdraw from the world in order to recuperate. You may find that you are a gifted healer and might be particularly helpful with children, or in healing those with mood disorders or psychological problems.

 

You may reach for food when you feel upset, in an attempt to fill yourself up emotionally. As a result you can be prone to weight-gain caused by oedema, or simply eating too much. Try to eat sensibly. Include fresh fruit and vegetables every day. Drink plenty of water and don't eat too much salt. Apple cider vinegar is a good source of potassium and can greatly assist when there is too much sodium in your system. It is also an appetite suppressant. Ensure you get enough B-group vitamins, which will assist your physical system to process emotional and psychic content.

 

Inner Needs and Outer Experiences - Finding Balance

 

When certain planets and the Ascendant are at odds with one another, we can experience inner tension and challenges that can feel as if we are being pulled in two directions at once. The Ascendant is that part of us that interfaces with our immediate environment, so when planets are in hard aspect to the Ascendant, we can encounter challenges as we try to express ourselves in the wider world. We can also experience issues that arise because there are differences between what we want to express and what we think is expected of us. Stress can build up over time if there is no outlet for self-expression, so these aspects can be potent indicators of one's overall health and wellbeing. As we learn to work with some of these challenges, they can actually help us to grow and to lead more purposeful lives.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant (Mercury) is Conjunct The Sun

Your energy and vitality are strong and you strive to do your best. In all your activities and in your creative and self-expression you enjoy competition, in its many forms. In exercise and sport you also like to challenge yourself to do better. You strive for the highest standards in many areas of life and are usually confident that you can overcome any illnesses or setbacks that you encounter, but sometimes you can over-estimate your capacity to cope. Cardiovascular illnesses, circulation or back problems can develop if you push yourself too far, without taking into account the actual circumstances in which you find yourself. You have a powerful constitution, but stress can take its toll on your health if you think you are invincible and if you ignore limitations or practical considerations. Although you are very strong, you are not super-human. You may need to develop more perspective and find a healthy balance between activity and rest. Wearing Tiger-Eye crystal can assist you to express your passions in practical and sustaining ways.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant is Mercury

You are given to behaving in very spontaneous and changeable ways according to the whims of the moment and the people and circumstances in which you find yourself. You can be an extravert and also an introvert. You are highly adaptable and cope pretty well with the stresses of daily life, however you may be prone to catching viruses, colds and flu, gastric problems, or ingesting substances that have a detrimental effect. You may also experience accidents from a tendency to rush without enough forethought. Both respiratory conditions and digestive complaints may be associated with an underlying allergic response to certain foods or air-borne substances such as pollen or dust. Some of these symptoms may be brought on by too little thiamine (B1). Thiamine deficiency can also result in nervous complaints and even nerve damage. Communication problems such as stuttering or autism may also be related to this aspect. You are highly capable and intelligent, but you are inclined to take on too much, perhaps because of a need to show others how efficient or clever you are. Try to keep an open mind as you learn from your experiences.

 

As you move through life you will likely grow out of most of these problems and develop a strong mind and a powerful way of expressing your opinions and ideas, without having anything to prove. Ensure you get enough B-Group vitamins, especially during times of stress.

 

Venus is Opposite The Ascendant

You strive to develop close intimate relationships. Despite any setbacks you encounter in your dealings with people, you are still determined to find and establish supportive ties. You will make every effort to work at your personal relationships. However, as your values are important to you, you may be unwilling to compromise those priorities and values that are closest to your heart, just so a relationship can work. Once you establish your priorities, you stick to them, and you can sometimes be judgemental of those who see things differently. You may need to recognise your inner worth and that others' values have equal merit.

 

When things get out of balance in your life you can experience a range of conditions such as possible sugar problems, thyroid conditions, kidney problems, potential Vitamin E deficiency, eating disorders, weight gain/loss, or issues involving self-esteem. A lack of B3 can result in skin problems such as dermatitis and even mental disturbances. Ensure you get plenty of Vitamin B and E in your diet, which will assist during times of stress. You are probably highly creative and may possess artistic skills. Using these talents on a regular basis will be healing to your soul and fulfilling in other ways as well.

 

Finding a way to express yourself in accordance with your true values, while at the same time maintaining supportive and harmonious relationships, is one of your main challenges. Wearing Rose Quartz can assist in enhancing feelings of unconditional love, both giving and receiving.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant (Mercury) is Conjunct Mars

You are a fighter. You will stand up for your rights and for injustice and can be a powerful advocate for getting issues heard. Your competitive nature means you are capable of putting a great deal of energy into issues and causes that are close to your heart. This is a positive way to express your inner passions and you will discover it is also more worthwhile than simply focussing on expressing your ego, competing to attain personal goals, or having your own desires met. You generally have a great deal of energy and passion that fuels your body and mind, but try to ensure that you do not overdo things. Get plenty of vitamins and minerals, especially B12 and Iron and also try to make time to relax.

 

Taking things too far can result in cardiovascular ailments, high blood pressure, inflammatory conditions, problems with the adrenal glands, headaches, migraines and fevers. Anger can be the root cause of these problems. Anger management can go a long way towards a return to health. You may have sudden outbursts from time to time. Although these are usually short lived, they can have a dramatic impact on your relationships and your life in general. Swallowing your anger won't work either because repressed hostility can also lead to disease. Channel your energy and any feelings of frustration into sport, exercise, or make efforts to affect positive changes in the world around you.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant (Mercury) is Semisquare Chiron

You are a sensitive and caring soul who can easily be wounded. You may be subjected to an illness or psychological wound that could have a profound impact on you physically and/or emotionally. As you move through life you will come to realise that you possess a unique gift for healing, indeed a profession in the healing area would ideally suit your temperament. You are wise beyond your years. Listen to and honour your inner self. You may find that you are put into situations that are painful and through this suffering you will become a more caring and giving individual. You will come to understand that the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions are intertwined and of equal importance. You will experience profound healing and can make a valuable contribution by teaching others the lessons you learn. You may feel alone in your suffering, but you are capable of providing a beacon of hope that helps to inspire others in similar situations.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant (Mercury) is Sesquisquare Uranus

Being able to express yourself creatively is one of your most pressing needs. Finding an outlet for your particular talents is important for your sense of wellbeing, however you may find it difficult to find a vehicle or method to facilitate this expression. It is important that you honour your unique individuality and express yourself without fear. You are perhaps a rather eccentric person who may be misunderstood, or you may have trouble fitting in. Your interests, for example, could be unusual and your manner of expression can be difficult for people to understand. You tend to manage well on your own and your unique individuality is something of which you are proud, but you still need to find a way to interact with the wider world.

 

Stress can deplete your body of vitamins and minerals and can also result in a variety of nervous disorders. Conditions such as epilepsy, circulation problems, anxiety, or mental illnesses are possible. You could also experience some rare or unusual health conditions. At times you may feel isolated or misunderstood, and this can lead to feelings of depression.

 

It is important for you to express your individuality and creativity perhaps by developing more interaction with like-minded people. While it is necessary for you to recognise your uniqueness and to find your special niche in life, it is also important not to isolate yourself too much from others.

 

Learning yoga or Tai Chi could be highly beneficial for you, as these practises facilitate and enhance the natural flow of energy within your body and externally in your environment.

 

Dispositor of The Ascendant (Mercury) is Conjunct Pluto

You have a powerful energy that can cope with just about anything that comes your way. Your inner strength means you will fight against injustices as you seek to transform the world around you. You will fight for what you want in life; this includes your personal ambitions, but your biggest challenges and achievements have a more profound purpose.

 

It is possible that you come from a highly dysfunctional family background or that you will experience your fair share of difficulties. This can foster within you a deep-seated need to be in control of your own destiny. Your journey can take you from the depths of grief to the heights of success. More than anything else, you are a survivor who will pit yourself against any challenge life throws at you. Your wounds are both a source of pain and your greatest strength.

 

Pluto can be associated with genetically inherited conditions that can be difficult to treat. For you, stress can result in health issues involving the reproductive organs. Mental illness is also a possibility; this can include depression, bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, and other similar conditions. Pluto can also represent life-threatening conditions, but equally it infers that you are a survivor and can overcome even the most difficult problems. It could be that a close family member is the one who experiences some of these challenges and that you are the one who has to deal with them. As a result of your experiences you may develop a strong interest in psychology and related fields, and you may be an agent for healing others, as well as yourself. It is important that you learn to let go of those things that you cannot change.

 

Suggested healing options that could be beneficial for you include: detoxifying, colonic irrigation, psychotherapy, hypnotic regression and family therapy. Whatever your situation, you have the capacity to rise above your problems and turn difficulties into personal milestones, even great achievements.

 

Health Challenges

 

 

Work and Health - Managing the Impact of Stress

 

The 6th house yields important information about one's health. The 6th house is also the house of diet, work and daily activities, which indicates the connection that exists between all these aspects of life. The 6th house is also associated with our habits. To stay healthy it is important to eat sensibly, to establish good habits and to manage daily stress.

 

Planets connected to the 6th house often symbolise, or describe various parts of the body that we need to monitor for the effects of long-term stress.

 

Unlike the Ascendant and planets in the 1st house, which usually describe more acute physical conditions, the 6th house tends to correspond with more chronic health problems that can build up over time.

 

Our regular day-to-day activities, our habits, and our occupation are all connected with this house, the house of health. It can be difficult to change our habits and routines, but it is possible. By making conscious decisions that bring about better health, we can use the sixth house energies to establish healthy habits.

 

Mercury is in the 6th House

You are often on the go and probably lead a busy life. You are capable and efficient, but at times you can be under more stress than you think, for you are no slouch. You work hard and probably don't mind taking on a variety of tasks, which you perform well. From time to time, try to get in touch with and express your feelings too. Now and again take a break and slow down the pace, especially when you are not feeling well. Ensure you get plenty of B-Group vitamins in your diet.

 

Stress can manifest as respiratory problems, such as asthma, or allergies. You may be prone to digestive problems and/or viral infections, especially when you let yourself run down. Parts of your body that are potentially vulnerable to the cumulative effects of stress are: lungs, arms, shoulders, larynx, sinuses, urethra and the small intestine, as well as the nervous system. You can be prone to chronic shoulder, arm or wrist problems too, including 'frozen shoulder' from long hours spent in front of the computer.

 

Try not to eat on the run. Stop what you are doing and sit down to meals, eating slowly. Include plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit in your diet.

 

Venus is in the 6th House

You are a person with a high degree of integrity. You have a strong interest in giving to others and in providing services that fulfil their needs and you give quite selflessly when called upon. At times you might over-value others and under-value yourself, which can affect your sense of wellbeing.

 

Day-to-day stress can take its toll in ways that affect your self-esteem. You may feel unloved or undervalued at times. You should try to avoid replacing self-love with food, or other indulgent activities, in particular limit intake of sugary foods and alcohol, which you may not tolerate very well. Try to find a balance between giving and receiving.

 

Some relationships, especially in the workplace, may exacerbate feelings of unworthiness that sometimes emerge when you are under stress, but overall you enjoy working with people. Try to remember your values and self-worth are valuable in their own right and do not depend upon what others might think, say, or do. You may be interested in a profession in the healing area, if so, it would probably be in areas that honour the self-worth of others: massage therapy, aromatherapy, or beauty therapy for example. Also try to experience some of these pleasures yourself on a regular basis. Areas to watch for the effects of stress include: the thyroid, neck, tonsils, kidneys, bladder, vocal chords and the skin. Bach flower remedies, aromatherapy, or a regular massage can help you maintain optimum health. Consider taking up singing or dance, which are excellent ways for you to express yourself.

 

Mars is in the 6th House

You are very driven when it comes to work and you expend a great deal of energy in your daily activities. You tend to take on a huge workload and may not realise that at times you need to rest. As a result, you might experience burn out. You are highly energetic, but you need to realise that you are not infallible and that your energy needs to be replenished. Check your iron levels from time to time. Because your output often exceeds your input, you may need regular multi-vitamins and mineral supplements.

 

Areas of the body to monitor for cumulative stress build up are: the head, face, eyes, adrenal glands, muscles and blood. Watch for headaches, fevers, inflammatory conditions, stomach acidity and accidents that can lead to broken bones. You can also be prone to high-blood pressure and anaemia. Most of these problems can be dealt with by changing your habits.

 

Exercise regularly, but again don't overdo things. You are probably quite passionate, single-minded and competitive about your work, but you can become frustrated, impatient, or angry when things do not go according to plan. You might be suited to self-employment, as you enjoy having autonomy and getting results from your own efforts. It is important that you try to balance all this activity and energy with time spent just relaxing. Limit your intake of spicy food and alcohol.

 

Ruler of the 6th House is Neptune

You are highly adaptable and you may try to fit into situations from a misplaced sense of belonging. Work colleagues and other people with whom you have regular contact can easily influence you, but you could come to realise that you don't actually have much in common with these people. You may be a gifted artist and trying to fit into the corporate jungle may cause you to actually get sick. It is important for your wellbeing that you honour your intuition and creativity. You may be prone to illnesses that are difficult to diagnose and you could be sensitive to certain foods, chemicals and/or drugs. You might also experience symptoms that do not seem to have any explanation and you are potentially prone to depression. Avoid chemicals and food additives where possible. You will benefit from drinking plenty of water and having enough Omega 3 and 6 in your diet. Communing with nature will revive your spirits, especially when the demands of daily life and work tasks seem to overwhelm you. You are likely to benefit from such healing techniques as: Reiki, spiritual healing, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy and most types of holistic healing. It is best that you avoid alcohol and recreational drugs. As a sensitive person, you could also be prone to psychosomatic conditions and should make sure that you do what you can to minimise the impact of stress. Other areas that can be affected by cumulative stress are the lymphatic system and glandular system. When you feel the need to escape from your routine, do so by engaging in activities that revive your spirits. Try to avoid wallowing or indulging.

 

Pluto is in the 6th House

You may have to struggle to overcome something in order to survive. Because of your experiences you tend to rely on your own resources a good deal and feel the need to be strong and self-sufficient. As a result, the cumulative effects of stress can manifest in conditions that effect the reproductive area, the colon, bladder or lower back and you can also be prone to developing psychological problems, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. You are more sensitive than you like to think, for you like to show that you are quite driven and ambitious. Because you like to be self-sufficient, you may hide your sensitivity from others. Remember that holding in the effects of stress can make you sick. Pluto's connection with the 6th house suggests that you may suffer from constipation, haemorrhoids or fertility problems. These conditions can be a signal that you need to address the underlying psychology that is probably contributing to, if not causing, these problems. If not addressed, the on-going build up of toxins in your system, can result in serious diseases. Expressing your emotions, rather than holding them in, will alleviate tension and help to stop these conditions from developing. It is probably a good idea to detoxify your system once in a while and psychotherapy can be beneficial to help you release old patterns. Whatever the healing method, learning to let go will facilitate deep healing, psychologically and physically.

 

Limiting the Impact of Chronic Stress

 

The 6th house is the house of health and also of work. When planets form challenging aspects to this house they can symbolise day-to-day obstacles and/or frustrations that we encounter which cause stress reactions that can impact on our health. Planets in hard aspect to the 6th house are often those that we find frustrating in some way. These aspects are often associated with health matters, especially chronic conditions and they also remind us how important it is to manage day-to-day stress.

 

However, your own chart does not have any planets that fall into this category. Therefore you will need to refer to the other sections of this report to find advice which is relevant to your chart.

 

Physical Energy and Exercise

 

Iron, Cobalt, Chlorine, Folic Acid, Molybdenum, Selenium, Phosphorus, and Sodium, along with Fatty Acids and Vitamin B12 are associated with Mars. Mars is a primary masculine or yang archetype, associated with our physical energy and vitality. Mars also governs the adrenal glands, the sexual response, the blood and the muscles. So the position of Mars describes our physical energy, competitiveness and our passions. The usual action of Mars is direct, spontaneous and forceful.

 

Mars is also the planet associated with our ego. The location of Mars tells us how we go about getting what we want, or how we turn our desires into reality. Mars also represents how we handle ourselves when our desires are thwarted.

 

Used positively, Mars is associated with expressing our personal desires in spontaneous and creative ways and expressing our creative energy in ways that fulfil our desires. If too intense in its expression, Mars can be destructive, overly focussed on ego, angry, hostile or aggressive. When under active, Mars can operate in a passive-aggressive fashion, or can result in a lack of drive and energy.

 

Mars is in the 6th House

You expend a great deal of energy in your work and are capable of working long hours, though you probably prefer to get things done as quickly and efficiently as possible. Even so, you might not have much time or energy left over at the end of the day for exercise, or for other activities outside work. Once you make the time and effort you will really enjoy regular exercise, in fact this too can become an obsession. Possible exercises and sports that are suited to your type are running, walking, racquet sports, yoga, or dance. You tend to prefer activities that you can do on your own, rather than in a team situation and like to have your feet on the ground, which provides you with a sense of safety and competence. Skydiving is probably not your style. You like to go at your own pace and to challenge yourself against the clock, or to set your own goals, rather than work against competitors. Possible health concerns with this Mars position include bowel conditions including chronic inflammation, indigestion, constipation, or food allergies. Try to eat nutritious and healthy food and eat slowly which will aid digestion.

 

Your energy style is measured and sensual. You are practical, but also quite driven. You approach your tasks in methodical way. Very few people can match your efficiency. You generate a great deal of output and are highly productive, however you can be critical of others and may lack skills in teamwork. You prefer to go it alone. You may need to recognise that networking and teamwork can be just as useful in getting a result and that others can provide useful feedback.

 

You can become frustrated and critical with systems that you see as lacking in efficiency and you can be prone to burnout. Expressing your frustrations via communication, such as writing, is a good outlet.

 

Mars is in Pisces

Your energy can ebb and flow according to your inner psychological state. Sometimes you are full of dynamic energy and at other times can be prone to lethargy or chronic fatigue, or other conditions that affect your energy output. Sometimes you can have trouble retaining your focus on what it is that you are doing and can easily become distracted. Your energy style is suited to all types of water sports including swimming, rowing, surfing, and sailing. When you put your focus and desire into attaining personal milestones, you can be an inspiration to others, but you are probably not really interested in competition. Bushwalking or spending time regularly communing with nature will soothe your spirit. Health problems associated with this Mars position include bursitis, bunions and other feet problems, issues with fluid metabolism or lymph and endocrine imbalances. With this Mars position, alcohol and drugs are best avoided.

 

Finding a spiritual and creative outlet is most important for your wellbeing. Otherwise you may lack a sense of direction and/or motivation. You probably have unique artistic gifts and enormous creative potential and your physical energy is largely dependent upon your inner psychological wellbeing.

 

Healing Solutions

 

 

Towards Health - The Journey Continues

 

Astrologically, Chiron is the archetype most associated with healing. In myth, Chiron was a wise centaur and a teacher of the healing arts. His wisdom comes from experience. Wounded accidentally by Hercules, Chiron's story is also symbolic of our own journey towards wholeness and healing. Chiron was a healer and teacher and also physician, prophet and musician. Named for this mythological healer, the small planet Chiron was discovered in 1977, heralding the arrival into consciousness of many new aspects of complementary medicine and alternative healing techniques, just as the mythological Chiron was adept in these natural arts and sciences. The position of Chiron in our birth chart reveals information about where we might get in touch with our inner healer. Chiron symbolises our wounds and painful experiences and it is also the agent via which we can return to full health and reclaim our sense of wellbeing. The location of Chiron reveals clues about how we experience wounding and how we can find healing, mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally.

 

Chiron is in the 4th House

The wounds you experience in childhood may affect you in a profound way. Stress sources for you are often related to family, parents, and your emotional development. Emotional healing could become a priority for you. At some point you are likely to be involved in a process of deep-seated healing that in some way is connected with home, family, domestic matters and emotional security. Where do I belong? Where is home? What constitutes a family? These are some of the questions that lie deep within you. You are a sensitive soul who will probably develop a rich inner life.

 

You may become interested in investigating old patterns and family relationships, and in the process you will learn a great deal about yourself. You will discover how the past has contributed to your present and you will begin to express your feelings in new ways, which will prove to be highly cathartic.

 

You are highly imaginative, but at times you can feel insecure. At times of stress you need to retreat from the world. It is possible you will experience some conflicting emotions, from the heights of euphoria to the depths of sadness. Your moods can fluctuate quite rapidly. Physical concerns with digestion, stomach, the breast area, fluid metabolism, or food issues can be part of your journey, and can signal the need for emotional healing.

 

Delving into the past, or into your own unconscious patterns using tools such as psychotherapy, will bring deep emotional healing. You may feel the need to go through this process before you can fully embrace your future. Let yourself experience this without fear. Know you are safe.

 

Healing options that can be additionally beneficial for you include nutrition, diet changes, counselling, family therapy, hydrotherapy, dream work, meditation, hypnotherapy, or aromatherapy. In your life, try to strike a balance between giving and receiving.

 

Chiron is in Capricorn

You are adept at taking on responsibilities and commitments, but they may bring you some stress. This is particularly the case in respect to your career, but also in your home life and other areas. Perhaps you were encouraged to follow in the footsteps of a parent, or a family tradition, as far as a career path was concerned. Later, you might feel resentment that your own skills or interests were not encouraged. You may have issues with either of your parents concerning the rules and regulations that were set down for you to follow. These are potentially some of the things you need to work to resolve.

 

It is important that you take responsibility for your own life and try another career if you are not feeling fulfilled. Don't let your responsibilities become a burden. Key questions for you to consider are: What am I taking responsibility for? What are my goals and priorities? Do I have to carry this load on my own? Why am I doing this?

 

Business or work pressure, the pressure of responsibilities, stress from your parents, responsibilities of parenthood, or/and difficult encounters with government agencies, can be signals that these issues need to be addressed. If you experience health concerns with bones, joints, teeth, skin, knees, or back problems it is time to consider healing options such as massage, chiropractic, or osteopathy. Most importantly, strike a life/work balance.

 

Your journey may involve one or more major career changes, which could be quite scary initially, because it means giving up some measure of security, while also embracing change and the unknown.

 

At some point you might consider a career in the health sector, or as a teacher. In fact, once you have experienced healing in your own life, to embark on this journey will bring fulfilment, but it is important that you first deal with your own stress and wellbeing. Try to remain positive and adaptable and recognise that you do have choices. Within these challenges, you will find the key to your freedom and success.

 

Healing Inherited Patterns

 

Chiron is the archetypal 'wounded healer' and his position in the horoscope reveals information about our journey towards wholeness and wellbeing. When other planets combine with Chiron, our healing journey takes on added significance. Specific wounds that we carry with us can also provide clues as to how we can find inner wisdom and ultimate healing.

 

Mercury is Semisquare Chiron

Your wounds are possibly connected to communication or learning. Perhaps you have trouble in these areas, perhaps as a result of your early in life at school. Perhaps you missed some important information in your school years, maybe owing to ill health. Both respiratory conditions and digestive complaints may be associated with this combination, including allergic reactions. Communication problems such as stuttering or dyslexia may also relate to this aspect. As you move through life you will probably find that you grow out of these problems and develop a strong mind and a degree of wisdom. You may struggle with some of these issues but you can overcome them. Over time you may actually become a gifted teacher.

 

Mars is Semisquare Chiron

Your healing journey may involve you in events that can make you feel angry and frustrated. But dwelling on these issues can exacerbate matters and lead to problems including cardio vascular conditions, high blood pressure and heart conditions. Anger management can go a long way towards a return to health, but you may also need to delve more deeply within yourself in order to find true healing.

 

You may have sudden outbursts of anger, or be on the receiving end from others outbursts. Swallowing your anger won't work because repressed hostility can lead to disease as well, if not depression. Passive-aggressive behaviour can be equally counter-productive. In your healing journey it is important for you to find a way to balance your strength and sensitivity. Over-reacting to events may be a signal that you need to look within yourself for answers. Sexual dysfunction is also possible with this combination of energies. Again, look for ways to balance your strength and passions with your more caring side. It could be that you lack assertiveness and need to heal on an ego level, which will help you to express your desires.

 

As accidents are possible with this aspect, it could be that you are on the receiving end, or perhaps the cause of an accident, which dramatically changes your life. It may be this event that is a catalyst that leads you to embrace ultimate healing. It is part of your journey to learn forgiveness, of others and of yourself.

 

Saturn is Square Chiron

You may experience phobias or fears that stem from your childhood experiences, in particular these may be relating to your relationship with your father. Fear can block spontaneous expression, and can impact on health. Perhaps you were encouraged to follow in the footsteps of your father, or a family tradition, or perhaps you struggle to get out from under this powerful influence. You might feel that you must strictly adhere to rules and regulations that were set down for you to follow, which can spill over into your adult development.

 

It is important that you find your own goals and aims in life and be able to express yourself without fear. When you are thwarted in attaining your ambitions you can become discouraged, depressed, frustrated or angry. These emotions, along with fear, can be signals that you need to embrace healing. Give yourself permission to experience healing.

 

At times you can be overly focussed on your responsibilities, or perhaps the reverse is true. Your healing journey includes finding a way to recognise which things are your responsibility and which are not. What are your goals and what do you aspire to become?

 

Uranus is Square Chiron

Owing to the slow movement of the outer planets, it is important to note that these aspects can be present for a great many people and are therefore more often associated with cultural, or social conditions rather than personal ones.

 

Social isolation has become an issue for many people, consistent with the fact that aspects between these planets are common. Chiron and Uranus were on opposing sides of the earth for a long period of time. Just about everyone born between 1950 and 1990 have Chiron and Uranus in opposition.

 

This aspect symbolises that many traditions have largely been overthrown and we have embraced new technologies and new freedoms. But at the same time those things that we once relied upon are no longer there, and this has led to a host of social problems.

 

The pace at which life is lived is more rapid than ever before and this can lead to its own brand of stress. Feelings of isolation are more common experiences, which can lead to depression and other mental illnesses.

 

Linking up with like-minded people can help us realise that we are not alone in this suffering.

 

Pluto is Semisquare Chiron

Owing to the slow movement of the outer planets, it is important to note that these aspects can be present for a great many people and are therefore more often associated with cultural, or social conditions, rather than personal ones.

 

Today we are becoming more aware that humanity as a whole is at a crossroads. This aspect signifies issues pertaining to the ultimate survival of life on earth and healing of collective psychological issues that are shared by all.

 

Aspects between these planets are common. Chiron and Pluto were on opposite sides of the earth during much of the 1960s when this deeper awareness first came into consciousness. For those touched by this awareness, healing the planet and related big picture issues, can become a major imperative and mission in life, especially if other personal planets are also in aspect to Chiron and Pluto.

 

Key Parts of the Body

 

Each degree of the zodiac corresponds with a specific part of the body. The location of each planet in the birth chart will therefore represent certain physical areas. This section lists all the anatomical degrees of your natal planets as well as the degree of the Ascendant and Sixth House cusp.

 

Unfortunately, the exact meaning of a few of the terms in the anatomical degrees remains unclear, even after consultation by the translator, Jane Ridder-Patrick, with German medical colleagues. However, from the zodiacal area concerned, it is relatively simple to give a fairly reliable approximation. Although he did include them along with his own work, Reinhold Ebertin was of the opinion that these degree areas are not as reliable as those he himself used.

 

The 'azimene degrees' are also included in this list. These degrees, which are sometimes called degrees lame and deficient, come from William Lilly's Christian Astrology written in the 17th Century. Lilly says that blindness, deafness, lameness or any other crippling disability or deformity, can be explained by the person having the Ascendant, the Ascendant ruler, the Moon or the most important planet, in either the natal chart or the decumbiture chart (a chart for the onset of an illness), in any of the azimene degrees.

 

Please note that some of these degree areas are gender specific, and will therefore not necessarily apply to you. It is important to also keep in mind that you probably won't have health problems with all of these physical areas, nor necessarily with any of them, but if you do have a health issue that relates to any of these degree areas, you may need to investigate the nature of this particular planet further, for specific healing.
