Stellar Diagnosis and Stellar Healing.
Part XII. Diagnosis and Treatment: Rupture, to Yellow Fever.
by C.C. Zain


Ringworm. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Rupture. � Birth-chart Constant: Heavy afflictions to Mars; and usually afflicted planets in Virgo, Libra or Scorpio.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, usually an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: The stellar Structure mapped by Mars should receive Lunar planetary energies, and the stellar structure mapped by afflicted planets in Virgo, Libra or Scorpio should receive the planetary energies of their antidote. Etheric energies, both Solar and Lunar, applied at an early date to the ruptured tissue, while the thoughts command them to heal, is very effective. Such tissues should be held properly in contact by mechanical means to enable the healing process to take place.

Chart 305; male. Feb. 24, 1902, 4:25 a.m. 80W. 37-15N.

Moon in Virgo, square Neptune and Uranus. Mars conjunction Sun, opposition Pluto.

In 1920, as progressed, with Mars opposition Moon r in Virgo, was ruptured.

Salt Rheum. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Sarcoma. � See Cancer.

Scabies. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Scarlet Fever.�Birth-chart Constant: Mars nearly always aspecting the Sun, and at least prominent.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: This is a highly contagious disease, with a very great mortality among children. The stellar structure mapped by Mars should be given Lunar planetary energies, and the stellar structure mapped by the Sun should be given Venus planetary energies. Every effort should be made to keep the fever down. Lunar etheric energies are helpful in this.

Reduced thyroid output and reduced output of adrenalin and intercortin permit the invading forces to get a foothold. Various serious complications often follow unless the disease receives prompt and efficient treatment. The diet should be such as to favor the kidneys and the Mars glandular secretions. That is, meat and proteins should be avoided, and a light diet of fruit juices or vegetables used which will tend to build alkalinity; as the system already has more acid toxins than the chemical supply can readily handle.

Everything about the sickroom should be thoroughly disinfected.

Chart 301; male. Jan. 14, 1878, 8:34a m. 79-45W. 42-08N.

Mars square Sun.

In January, 1888, with Mars semi-square Moon r, and Sun square Neptune p as a rallying force, he had scarlet fever; was ill three months.

Chart 310; male. June 6m, 1898, 5:15 p.m. 94-40W. 39N.

Mars semi-square Sun.

In the summer of 1905, with Mercury semi-sextile Mars p, and Venus sesqui-square Saturn p as a rallying force, he had scarlet fever.

Sciatia.-- Birth-chart Constant: Mercury or Uranus, usually both, afflicted; and at the same time a planet afflicted in Sagittarius, or less commonly no planet in Sagittarius and Jupiter afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, usually an affliction, to Mercury or Uranus at the same time there is an aspect to Jupiter or to the planet in Sagittarius.

Stellar Treatment: Sciatica is a neuralgia, or if there is a progressed aspect to Mars a neuritis, which affects the sciatic nerve. The treatment, therefore, is the same as that given for neuralgia and neuritis, except that in addition effort should be made to relive any strain pressure on the nerve. Sitting a long time on a hard chair, prolapsed abdominal viscera, enlargement of the prostate gland, or other conditions which cause a pressure on the nerve, even standing too long at a time, may be contributing causes of the disease. Rest in bed for a few days is helpful when strain due to working conditions is a contributing factor. Etheric energies applied to the nerve are very affective.

Chart 306; female. June 27, 1877, 1:00 p.m. 85W. 43N.

Mercury square Saturn and Mars, Uranus square Pluto . Jupiter in Sagittarius square Saturn and opposition Sun.

Oct. 20, 1927, as progressed, with Sun trine Jupiter p in Sagittarius, Sun conjunction Uranus p, and Mars conjunction Saturn p, she had sciatica of the neuritis type which affected the sciatic nerve of the left leg.

Short Journey Difficulties. � B. of L. Astrological Report No. 11 analyzes the birth-charts and progressed charts of 100 people at the time they made short journeys.

Sinus Troubles. � Birth-chart Constant: Upper-octave planets prominent. Mars afflicted, and commonly an affliction in either Aries or Libra.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Mars, and usually also an aspect to an upper-octave planet.

Stellar Treatment: Here we have over-sensitiveness, due to disturbance of the parathyroid glands and lack of ability to handle calcium. Frequently, as shown by Mars or the Libra planet, there is a kidney difficulty. The Mars influence lowers the resistance to acids and toxins through depleting the adrenalin and intercortin supply. The consequent irritation, and often infection, due to the rulership of Mars or the planet in Aries, becomes focused in the sinus region.

The diet should be such as to favor the parathyroids and the adrenal glands. The responsible upper-octave stellar structure should receive the planetary energies of its antidote. The Mars stellar structure should receive the planetary energies of the Moon. Lunar etheric energies may be applied to the affected region.

The thought-treatment and the thinking of the patient are important, as the para-thyroids can not function adequately while the thoughts are irritating and tense. Poise and the cultivation of the religious urges are to be advocated.

Chart 307, male. June 7, 1903, 4:443 p m. 87:50W. 42N.

Sun conjunction Pluto, opposition Uranus. Mars in Libra , square Neptune.

May 8, 1929, as progressed, with Sun P Uranus p, Sun semi-square Venus p, Mercury conjunction Pluto p, and Asc. sextile Mars r, he developed sinus trouble;.

Skin Diseases. � See Eczema, Erysipelas, etc.

Sleeping Sickness. � Birth-chart Constant: Neptune prominent and afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Neptune at the same time there is an aspect to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: This unusual malady should not be confused with the sleeping sickness of Africa, which is due to the parasite trypanosome, carried by the tsetse fly from the mouth of crocodiles and planted in the blood stream of human beings whom it bites. Yet that the sleeping sickness of America is induced by the invasion of the human organism by some type of enemy is indicated by the fact that when it occurs a progressed aspect of Mars has reduced the efficiency of the human chemical fighting apparatus.

As a negative condition, shown by Neptune, is a predisposing condition, Solar planetary energies should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by Neptune as well as Saturn planetary energies. The mineral salts and vitamins should receive attention, and Solar etheric energies should be applied to increase the vitality. The Mars condition also should be attended to in the matter of diet, and in applying lunar Planetary energies to the stellar structure mapped by it.

A stimulating thought-treatment, with proper suggestions, at the time the Solar etheric energies are applied is most useful.

Chart 308, Male. May 17, 1913, 9:00 p.m. 98-30W. 45-30N.

Neptune in 7th, opposition Jupiter, sextile Sun, square Venus.

Feb. 1, 1925, as progressed, with Mercury P Neptune p, Sun conjunction Saturn p, Sun sextile Mars r, and Mars square Jupiter p, he took sick; went to sleep Feb. 7 and slept 21 days.

Small Animals: Difficulties With.�Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Small-pox. � Birth-chart Constant: Mars prominent and afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Mars at the same time there are severe rallying forces.

Stellar Treatment: The highly contagious disease is typical of Mars, and the more prominent Mars is, and the more afflicted, the more likelihood of contracting it. Unsanitary conditions contribute to its powers to afflict. As indicated by the Mars constant, the adrenalin and intercortin supply becomes inadequate to the power of the invading germs. And as is also indicated by the Mars constant, the blood stream which invites it is not free from toxins. That is, if the blood is no already foul or the adrenal glands depleted, the invading force an not gain a foothold.

Few, however, have a blood stream sufficiently pure and glands active enough to be free from risk through exposure to the disease. The food should not be stimulating, should be productive of an alkaline reaction, and proteins especially, and rich foods, should be avoided. Lunar planetary energies should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by Mars, and Lunar etheric energies should be used to reduce the fever. Quietness and absence of excitement are essential; and good nursing is unusually important.

Chart 309; male. April 17, 1873, 4:15 a.m. 122W 38N.

Mars semi-square Moon, square Saturn and square Uranus.

When 28years old, as progressed, with Mars square Uranus r, he had small-pox.

Sore Throat. � See Tonsillitis.

Sorrow.�Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Somnambulism. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Spasm. � See Convulsion.

Speculation Difficulties. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Spinal Meningitis. � Birth-chart Constant: Upper-octave planets prominent and afflicted, and the Sun afflicted.

Progressed Constant: Aspects, usually afflictions, to Sun and Mars.

Stellar Treatment: Chemical imbalance due to the action of the upper-octave planets upon the parathyroid glands induces an extreme sensitiveness, which because of the affliction of the Sun locates in the membranes of the spinal cord. These, under the irritation, and in some instances infection, permitted when the adrenalin and intercortin supply become exhausted by the Mars aspect, become inflamed.

The diet should favor the upper-octave planets and Mars. Lunar planetary energies should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by Mars, and Lunar etheric energies should be used along the spine. The proper planetary energies to act as antidotes should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by the upper-octave planets involved.

Chart 310; male. June 6, 1898, 5:15 p.m. 94-40W. 39N.

Uranus in 1st conjunction Saturn; Pluto in 7th conjunction Sun; Neptune conjunction Sun; Mars semi-square Sun.

When two and a half years old, as progressed, with Mars inconjunct Uranus p, and Mars semi-square Sun r, he had spinal meningitis.

Spleen Troubles. � Birth-chart Constant: Afflictions to either Sun or Saturn or both.

Stellar Treatment: The stellar structure mapped by Saturn should receive the planetary energies of Venus, and the stellar structure mapped by the Sun should receive the planetary energies of Jupiter. The spleen should be thoroughly and repeatedly charged with Solar etheric energy, takking pains to seal it with a motion of the hand to prevent it oozing out before used. As there I usually a contributing disease of some recognized type, this should receive the treatment advocated for it.

Chart 313; female. Jan. 23, 1891, 9:00 p.m. 17E. 49N.

Sun square Uranus, Sun sesqui-square Saturn, Sun semi-square Venus, Saturn conjunction Asc.

In 1921, with Mars P Saturn p, Mars square Moon r as a rallying force, Saturn trine Mercury r, and Sun square Neptune r, she had hardening of the spleen.

Spotted Fever.�Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

St. Vitue Dance. � Birth-chart Constant: Uranus and Mercury prominent and afflicted.

Progressed Constant: Heavy aspects to Mercury; or to an upper-octave planet at the same time there are severe rallying forces.

Stellar Treatment: Not only Mercury, but its octave. Uranus, has much to do with the control of the nerve currents, which are the Solar-Lunar etheric energies which flow over the nervous system. These etheric energies are directed through the mental images and conscious thoughts ruled by Mercury. But Uranus when powerful has a very compelling power over the type of thoughts which enter the mind. When the mental image do not properly coordinate, aspects to upper-octave planets, which increase control.

A diet should be advocated suitable to Mercury and Uranus afflictions. The rallying forces should receive their proper planetary antidotes. But chief element of the treatment should be the education of the individual to think and feel calmly and with poise, and without a jarring of the mental factors. Psychoanalysis is a great help, as the warring mental factors, repressions, and other internal conflicts must be brought to the surface and corrected.

When the internal conflict is understood, thought-treatment and suggestion can be used to help in the work of reharmonizing the mental factors. Everything tending to excitement should be avoided.

Chart 311; male. March 17, 1906, 9:50 a.m. 77W. 39N.

Uranus conjunction Moon and square Mercury.

In March and April, 1916, as progressed, with Asc. conjunction Pluto r, Mars sextile Neptune r, and Mars trine Uranus r, he had St. Vitus Dance.

Stomach Trouble. �See Dyspepsia, Gastritis, Gastric Ulcer, etc.

Sterility. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Study; Difficulty With. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Sunstroke (Also Heatstroke). � Birth-chart Constant: Watery planets, chiefly Neptune or the Moon, prominent and afflicting, especially if an affliction in Aries.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, usually an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: The same conditions develop in furnace workers and those who work in glass works, laundries, etc where the heat is great, as with those who suffer from the direct rays of the Sun.

Neptune in particular, but the moon to a lesser extent also, tends to induce a condition in which there is inability to resist heat. The planetary antidotes should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by the watery planet responsible negativeness should further be overcome by the application of Solar planetary energies to the responsible planet.

The person so affected usually has a lowered vitality. This may be caused by fatigue. Or, the water-salt balance being disturbed as indicated by the Moon, he may cause to perspire. If the face is pale, Solar etheric energies should be used in the region of head and heart restore circulation. The feverish condition may be reduced by the use of lunar etheric energies.

As at the time Mars has affected the adrenal glands in such a manner that they do not call forth the emergency fuel, quiet, and frugal diet which favors Mars are advantageous. The throbbing in the head may be relieved by passes from the head toward the feet.

Moon elevated, semi-square Mars. Neptune in 1st, conjunction Sun.

When 25 years old, with Sun square Jupiter r, Mercury conjunction Neptune p, Mars square Saturn r, Mars square Uranus p, and Venus opposition Mars r, he had sunstroke

Sweating. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Syphilis. � Birth-chart Constant: Venus or Mars, usually both, afflicted, and especially an affliction from Mars to Venus.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, usually an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: The thyroid glands, which respond to Venus, and the adrenal glands, which respond to Mars, both secrets chemicals which are destructive to bacteria. The afflictions to these two planets, thus not merely indicates a stellar structure the thought-cells of which attract the individual to social contacts by which the disease may be contracted, but they also lower the output of the chemicals which are required to resist the invasion of the blood stream by these exceedingly pernicious spiral bacteria.

Highly seasoned and spicy foods should be avoided, and the diet and other hygienic measures should be such as to give strength to the thyroid and adrenal glands to enable them to secrets and use for the destruction of the invading bacteria a normal amount of their hormones. Strain, excitement, and strong emotions should be avoided. The utmost cleanliness should be observed. And a vitality should be built up which will aid in the fight to rid the system of bacteria and their poisons.

The stellar structure mapped by Mars should be treated with the Lunar planetary energies. The stellar structure of Venus should be treated with the Saturn planetary energies. And if negative conditions are prominent, the stellar structure mapped by negative planets should be treated with Solar planetary energies.

Simple living, with care in regard to diet that it places no strain on the adrenal thyroid or gonad glands, exercise enough to insure elimination, and the application of both Solar and Lunar etheric energies to build up the constitution and vitality, are important helps to recovery.

Chart 312; male. Jan. 18, 1889, 11:50 p.m. 99-50W. 47N.

Mars conjunction Venus, sesqui-square Uranus.

In June, 1919, as progressed, with Mars sesqui-square Saturn p, and Mercury opposition Moon r, and square Neptune r as rallying forces, he contrasted syphilis.

Thymus Trouble. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Tic Fever. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Tonsillitis. Birth- chart Constant: An upper-octave planet prominent, and either Venus afflicted, or more commonly an afflicted planet in Taurus.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: The upper-octave planet gives a sensitiveness which, due to the affliction of Venus or in Taurus affects the tonsils in particular. When Mars is aspected the adrenalin and intercortin supply, and perhaps also the gonad hormones, become inadequate to the work demanded of them. The tonsils and region of the throat become inflamed, and this if unchecked may lead suppuration of the tonsils. There is another form in which there is bacterial infection similar to diphtheria, only in a very mild form.

The parathyroid activity should be reestablished to overcome the sensitiveness. Both the diet and the planetary energies which are the antidote of the upper-octave planet which is responsible may be used in this. The toxic condition of the blood should be remedied through a diet favorable to Mars and favorable to an alkaline reaction; and the Mars stellar structure as shown by the progressed aspect should receive the planetary energies of the Moon.

Etheric energies should be applied by holding the right hand on the front of the throat and the left hand at the back of the neck opposite.

Trench Fever. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Trysopanosomiasis. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Tuberculosis. � Birth-chart Constant: Afflictions from either Saturn or Neptune; usually from both.

Progressed Constant" An aspect, usually an affliction, to either Saturn or Neptune.

Stellar Treatment: This disease is due to negative conditions and deficiencies which enable the tubercle bacillus to get a foothold and thrive within the human organism. To combat the disease, therefore, the physical environment, planetary energies, diet and etheric energies all should have for object the building up of positive vital energy and supplying the vitamins, mineral salts, and energy-producing foods which will overcome the deficiencies.

Neptune favors moist and hidden pockets which can harbor bacilli. Thus a high dry atmosphere is beneficial, especially when Neptune is involved, as it dries out these recesses. Sunlight supplies Vitamin D and the dry air supplies oxygen, both of which are foes of Saturn.

Not only the planetary energies which are the antidote should be applied to the stellar structure mapped by Saturn and Neptune, but Solar planetary energies also should be applied to them, and to other structure for the purpose of giving greater positiveness and energy. Solar etheric energies should be applied to the patient abundantly, especially to the infected region, to add to the vitality. The patient should be repeatedly and thoroughly charged with etheric energy until his vitality is strong enough to stop the development of the disease.

Chart 313; female. Jan. 23, 1891, 9:00 p.m. 17E. 49N.

Saturn conjunction Asc., sesqui-square Sun. Neptune trine Sun and semi-square Moon.

Oct. 4, 1929, as progressed, with Sun P Saturn Mercury inconjunct Saturn p, and Mars square Moon r as a rallying force, she died of tuberculosis.

Tumor. � See Fatty Tumor, Fibrous Tumor, Cancer, etc.

Typhoid Fever. � Birth-chart Constant: Mars afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, usually an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: B of L. Astrological Report No. 15 analyzes the birth-charts and progressed charts of 64 persons at the time they had typhoid. In 95% there was a progressed aspect to Mars at the time, and in 84% this was an affliction to Mars. The Mars influence, however, was discernable in all of them. For details consult the report.

Typhoid fever is typically a Mars disease in which Bacillus typhosus invades the system, being attracted by the progressed Mars aspect, and usually finding access with the food or drinking water. The Mars aspect also depletes the adrenalin and intercortin supply, upon which the system must depend to fight such infection. These bacteria bring about a condition in the intestines resembling catarrh, cause enlargement and necrosis of the Peyerian glands, and enlargement of the spleen and mesenteric glands. Complications with other diseases may arise. In the type called walking typhoid the patient is not so ill but that he can walk about.

The diet should be free from meat and should contain little protein, and in other respects should favor Mars and the adrenal glands. The high fever is the chief danger, and suitable means should be used to keep it down. The etheric energies of the Moon and proper nursing are valuable in this. Stimulants are never called for. The Stellar structure mapped by Mars should be given the planetary energies of the Moon, and the glands affected and the bowels should be freely treated with both the planetary energies and the etheric energies of the Moon.

The delirium which often accompanies the fever may be controlled by thought treatment, suggestion, and the etheric energies of the Moon applied to the head. Disinfection, especially in regard to discharges from the patient, should be carefully observed.

Mars in 1st, semi-square Sun.

In 1927, with Mars semi-sextile Mercury r (Mars unusually prominent at birth) and Venus square Moon r, and Asc. square Pluto r, he had typhoid.

Typhus Fever. � Will be considered in and Astrological Report.

Ulcers. � See Gastric Ulcers, etc.

Uremia. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Uterus Troubles. � Birth-chart Constant: A planet afflicted in Scorpio; or afflictions to Mars or Venus.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, especially an affliction, to a planet in Scorpio or to Mars or Venus.

Stellar Treatment: While the Moon has considerable influence over the feminine cycles, and if involved its stellar structure should receive treatment, the chief source of such female difficulties is Venus and Mars. If there is a planet in Scorpio especially if afflicted, any difficulty is more apt to affect the uterus than it otherwise would.

Etheric energies, according to the nature of the difficulty, should be applied to the region affected. The planet in Scorpio and Venus and Mars should receive in the stellar structure they map the planetary energies which are their antidotes. The diet must contain the proper vitamins, otherwise the cycles will be irregular. The thyroid glands are intimately associated with the uterus, and the diet , should contain iodine for them. If they are sluggish, as shown by depressed Sun and Venus, they should be stimulated; but if they are over-active, diet as shown by aspects of Sun and Venus, both diet and treatment should be toward less stimulation.

Chart 248; female. Nov. 14, 1872, 11:00 a.m. 74W. 40-43N.

Sun in Scorpio, opposition Moon and Pluto; Venus square Mars.

In March. 1915, as progressed, with Mars square Saturn r, and Venus square Moon r, had uterus removed on account of fibrous tumor.

Vaccine Poisoning. � Birth-chart Constant: Heavy Mars afflictions.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, especially an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: Vaccines and serums when applied to people who have severe Mars afflictions in the birth-chart, and progressed aspects to Mars, sometimes do immense damage. Under such conditions it sometimes transpires that the vaccine or serum is impure and plants in the system of the unfortunate germs which it can not eradicate. Then again, under Mars afflictions, the adrenalin and intercortin supply may be so deficient, and the gonad secretions so scanty, that the system has not the chemicals to overcome the virus or to form the necessary antibodies with which to protect itself.

Where such danger is shown, or when such poisoning has already taken place, the negative influences mapped in the birth-chart should be vitalized with Solar planetary energies, and the whole system charged with Solar etheric energies to increase its vitality. The diet should in all respects favor the planet Mars, and the Mars stellar structure should receive the planetary energies of the Moon.

Chart 259; male. Aug. 22, 1885, 7:00 a.m. 81-50W. 24-30N.

Mars conjunction Saturn, semi-square Sun, and opposition Moon.

In the summer of 1914, as progressed, with Mars sextile Uranus p, Mars sextile Pluto r, Mercury conjunction Asc., and Sun P Uranus r, he has vaccinated, and was so poisoned that by Dec. 1916 he was totally blind.

Vagina Troubles. � See Female Troubles.

Valvular Disease. � Will be in an Astrological Report.

Varicose Veins. � Birth-chart Constant: Venus afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Venus, at the same time there are severe rallying forces.

Stellar Treatment: This difficulty is often brought on through the strain of constant standing, or in women through pregnancy. The affliction to Venus tends to cause irritants in the blood to weaken the walls of the veins. The chemical imbalance encouraged by Venus is due to the thyroid glands and the gonads. But very frequently. If not always, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, or other planets afflicted tend to permit toxins to accumulate in the blood, which, under the aspect by progression to Venus, cause the veins to become dilated and tortuous in their course.

While, therefore, the diet should favor Venus, it should also be such as is recommended for the planet which thus contributes to the toxic condition of the blood stream. And this planet, as well as Venus, should have the stellar structure which it maps in the birth-chart treated with its planetary antidote.

If the afflictions to Venus is stimulating, Lunar planetary energies should be also applied to the Venus planetary structure; but if the affliction is from a negative planet, Solar planetary energies should be used. Emotional stresses should be avoided, and a poised attitude cultivated. The thought-treatment should tend in particular to harmonize the emotions and relieve their stress.

Chart 314; female. April 23, 1884, 10-40 a.m. 123W. 44-30N.

Venus semi-square Sun and square Uranus.

In 1926, as progressed, with Venus sextile Mercury r, Mercury sextile Venus p, Mars square Pluto r, and Sun conjunction Saturn p, varicose veins caused severe trouble.

Varioloid. � Same constants and treatment as Small-pox.

Vertigo. � Will be considered in an Astrological Report.

Vomiting. � See Biliousness, Gastritis, etc.

Whooping Cough. � Birth-chart Constant: Negative planets prominent; and afflictions in Gemini or Mercury afflicted.

Progressed Constant: An aspect to Mars; and usually an aspect to Mercury or to the planet in Gemini.

Stellar Treatment: This is a contagious disease, which is more readily contracted in the presence of a common cold. The negative planets lower the resistance of the body to invasion of all kinds, and the Mercury aspect tends to a chemical imbalance due to inability of the deficient parathyroid secretion to properly handle calcium. The result of this chemical imbalance is to make the membranes of the throat and bronchi sensitive and open to infection.

The Mars aspect lowers the intercortin and adrenalin supply, with which chemicals the body normally fights such invasion. The Gemini or Mercury influence also tends to cause the infection to affect, due to weakened structure, the bronchi. The cough is occasioned by the accumulation of tough, tenacious mucus in the throat, and may become severe enough either to cause the collapse of some portion of the lungs or the dilation of the air cells, with accompanying shortness of breath.

The diet should favor Mars and Mercury. Lunar planetary energies should be applied to the Mars stellar structure, and Jupiter planetary energies to the Mercury stellar structure. Planets either Taurus or Gemini should have their planetary antidotes applied to the stellar structure they map. Lunar etheric energies are valuable to reduce the tendency to violent coughing, and Solar etheric energies to overcome the negativeness. Good nursing is essential in severe cases.

Yellow Fever. � Birth-chart Constant: Negative planets prominent; Mars afflicted and prominent.

Progressed Constant: An aspect, especially an affliction, to Mars.

Stellar Treatment: This disease is caused by the invasion of the blood stream by some organism through the bite of certain mosquitoes. Every effort should be made, through diet, thinking and the application of planetary energies, to overcome the negative condition shown, and to build up energy and vital power. Solar etheric energies are thus helpful.

There is also a Mars condition to correct through proper diet and by the application of Lunar planetary energies to the stellar structure by Mars. Excitement and stimulating food should be avoided. The favor should be kept down. Lunar etheric energies are helpful in this.

A FINAL ADMONITION. � In bringing this course on Stellar Healing and Stellar Diagnosis to a close, I believe I should make certain things unmistakably clear:

In this course the mention of medicine, chiropractic adjustments, osteopathic treatments, massage, and even home remedies such as hot and cold compresses, the application of heat, etc., have rigorously been avoided.

It is quite certain that there are cases in which the use of chemicals is imperative. Surgery, at times, must be resorted to if the life is to be saved. Home remedies of a wide variety are known to be effective n certain complaints, and good nursing, more frequently than not, is a great help. Osteopathic, chiropractic, massage, colored light, electric and other types of treatment often yield excellent results. But as these are methods which can be learned elsewhere, it would be redundant for me to set forth any of these.

I wish it thoroughly understood, however, that it is the opposite of my purpose to attack or disparage such methods, or to claim that Stellar Healing is the only worth while system. Often the use of these more physical methods, by one who understands them, in conjunction with Stellar Healing, is an advantage. And I am quite sure that any healer, no matter what method he follows, will gain an insight into the affliction and proper treatment of his patient by having a knowledge of Stellar Diagnosis, that he could get in no other way. And I am convinced, also, that if in addition to the system he now employs, he will use Stellar Healing, he will secure far better results.

Members of THE CHURCH OF LIGHT who pass examinations on this course will be given a certificate showing that they understand Stellar Diagnosis. I do not believe, however, that a diploma from medical college makes a doctor in the sense that he is then able to cure disease. It merely shows that he has mastered certain studies. Nor just because a person has passed examination on this course does that make him a Stellar Healer. It requires the development of a technique by one who naturally is fitted for it to make a Stellar Healer.

Those who are real Stellar Healers do not require any certificate to convince people they are healers, as their cures will speak for themselves. Those who are not real Stellar Healers cannot become so by the possession of a piece of paper. The degrees of INIATION for passing the examination on this course, therefore, will be based on STELLAR DIAGNOSIS, and will not state the individual to be Master of Stellar Healing.

Only accredited colleges, capitalized for a large sum of money and teaching certain specified studies can bestow academic degrees, and none of eh studies issued by The Brotherhood of Light are recognized by accredited colleges, nor is THE CHURCH OF LIGHT such a legally accredited college. Therefore, all should understand that the passing of examinations, such as are required to be initiated into the various degrees of THE RELIGION OF THE STARS carries no legal privilege whatever, nor does it warrant he use of letters of any kind after the individual's name.

The explanation is made to make it clear to anyone who passes examinations on this course that NO LEGAL PRIVILIEGE either to diagnose of heal is granted thereby. Each state has its own laws regulating the practice of the healing art. In some states it is forbidden for any, except those passing the requirements of a State Board of Examiners, to prescribe so much as a glass of water, to give any opinions as to the nature of an illness, or even to place the hands on a person for healing purposes. Such laws should be changed. But so long as they exist no church or school can defy them.

To practice Stellar Healing it is not essential, although it is better, to place the hands in actual contact with the patient's body. The energy can be applied with the hands a few inches from actual physical contact with the patient. In some states, also, it is permissible to ask the patient leading questions, by which, if he has said nothing about symptoms, he can perceive that the drugless healer understand his complaint.

But as such rulings vary in different states, I strongly admonish any person contemplating either Stellar Diagnosis or Stellar Healing to become familiar with the laws of the state in which he lives as they apply to Drugless Healing. Regardless of ability, each state defines the conditions under which any individual can practice diagnosis and healing; and behooves the individual to abide by the laws of the state wherein he resides.

HEALERS SHOULD KNOW THE LAW. I trust I have made it clear the Stellar Healing is best used in the hands of those who have a natural ability as healers, and that these should have a proper license under existing laws to practice some form of healing. And I trust I have made it equally plain that the privilege to practice either Stellar Healing or Stellar Diagnosis cannot be granted by The Church of Light, but must be obtained by compliance with the state laws which govern drugless healing.
