TO make the instructions on stellar dynamics complete, in Chapter 06 it was
explained how to find the reinforcement power of minor progressed aspects on any
date while they were within orb, and how to calculate the total power and harmony or
discord of any sign or house on any date. Such calculations, however, are more
academic than practical. Seldom will there be a valuable use for them.
Life is a complex pattern, in which the major interlacing threads are indicated by the
major progressed aspects. The independent minor progressed aspects indicate very
much smaller threads crisscrossing the pattern. The reinforcing effects of the minor
progressed aspects are like beads along the major interlacing threads. To change the
comparison, usually they are minor events leading to, climaxing, or resulting from.
the main event indicated by the major progressed aspect they reinforce. They mark
the stages in the evolution, and the subsequent progeny of an event.
Except through their influence as Rallying Forces, commonly each major progressed
aspect stimulates the thought-cells affected to work for a different and characteristic
condition or event. The condition or event may add to the difficulty or favor indicated
by other progressed aspects affecting the same house, but commonly it is another
phase of the matter, or a further development of conditions and events past or present.
Thus while the total power of a house on a given date may indicate the total activity of
the thought-cells concerned with this department of life, it is unlikely this total
activity relates to one event. Usually it indicates thought-cells working for a variety
of events, the effort toward each expending the energy and the harmony or discord of
one of the progressed aspects which at the time are within orb.
What is commonly needed, therefore, for stellar diagnosis relative to any department
of life, including health, and as a guide to the precautionary actions that should be
taken, is the birth-chart power and harmony or discord of each of the planets, the peak
relative harmony or discord of each of the significant major progressed aspects, and
when, during the time the major progressed aspect is within orb, there are peaks of
power due to the reinforcement effect of minor progressed aspects.
The birth-chart power and harmony or discord of the planets indicate the
The reinforced peaks of power of a major progressed aspect afford a fair estimate of
the energy of the thought-cells at those times to exert more than normal pressure
characteristic of the planets involved on the thoughts, behavior and environment.
The harmony or discord which exerts pressure on the thoughts, behavior and
environment cannot be estimated by the harmony or discord of the progressed aspect
alone. The thought-cells influenced by the progressed aspect have their birth-chart
harmony or discord. This may be considered their lifetime normal. An independent
minor progressed aspect may coincide with a minor disagreeable or favorable event
deviating from the normal; but its relative effect on the period in which it occurs is
but a slight deviation from the normal harmony or discord; a deviation to be
measured by the relative harmony or discord of the minor progressed aspect to the
normal harmony or discord of the planets involved.
The harmony or discord of a major progressed aspect between two planets is also a
deviation from the normal harmony or discord of the thought-cells. The harmony or
discord added to the thought-cells by a progressed aspect alters their birth-chart
harmony or discord only by the number of harmodynes or discordynes added to their
birth-chart harmodynes or discordynes.
If, as frequently happens, the major progressed aspect is between two planets one of
which at birth had many harmodynes and the other at birth had many discordynes, the
average benefit or detriment of the events influenced by the aspect may very closely
be indicated by the average harmony or discord of the aspect, yet at the same time
some of the events or conditions may markedly benefit the departments of life ruled
by the harmonious birth-chart planet and some of the events, or the same events, may
markedly be a detriment or loss to the departments of life ruled by the discordant
birth-chart planet. For instance, the death of a loved one may mean a grave personal
loss, but may also bring a financial inheritance of much value. Or a harmonious
marriage may bring the estrangement of friends who oppose it.
In diagnosis and in determining precautionary actions it is desirable to know not
merely the peak harmony or discord of the significant major progressed aspect, but to
what extent the harmony or discord the thought-cells had at birth is modified at the
time the aspect reaches its maximum power.
Calculating the Relative Harmony
Due to a Major Progressed Aspect
--As explained in Chapter 05, except when a major progressed planet makes an
aspect to its birth-chart place every major progressed aspect has four terminals.
Chapter 02 explains how to calculate the birth-chart harmony or discord of a
planet. The normal progressed harmony of a planet is the number of harmodynes or
discordynes it carries with it wherever it moves after birth apart from those acquired
through progressed aspects. On page 12 of Chapter 04 is explained that a major
progressing planet carries with it one-half its birth-chart harmony or discord plus
one-half the harmony or discord given it by the essential dignity of the sign it
occupies by progression. Major progressed Moon thus carries not one-half, but
Disregarding progressed essential dignity and how many house cusps, and therefore
how many departments of life, may be influenced by each of the four terminals, the
approximate average relative harmony of a major progressed aspect may be found in
RULE: To 1½ times the algebraic sum of the birth-chart harmony of the two planets,
algebraically add 3 times the peak harmony of the progressed aspect and divide the
sum thus obtained by 4. If the progressed aspect is made by the Moon, to the
algebraic sum of the birth-chart harmony of the two planets, algebraically add 1/2 the
harmony of the non-lunar birth-chart planet, plus 1/14 the birth-chart harmony of the
Moon. To this sum algebraically add 3 times the peak harmony of the progressed
aspect of the Moon and divide the sum thus obtained by 4. The result so obtained will
be the approximate average relative harmony of each of the four terminals.
If the aspect is from a major progressed planet to its birth-chart place, the algebraic
sum of ¾ its birth-chart harmony and the harmony of the progressed aspect gives the
approximate average relative harmony of each of the two terminals. If the aspect is
from major progressed Moon to its birthchart place, the algebraic sum of 15/28 its
birth-chart harmony and the harmony of the progressed aspect gives the approximate
average relative harmony of each of the two terminals.
The approximate average relative harmony of each terminal influenced by a major
progressed aspect will give a good general idea of the average amount of help or
hindrance to be expected from it. But to estimate how much help or hindrance may be
expected from each of the terminals separately, the following rule will serve all
RULE: To find the relative harmony or discord of each terminal, algebraically add
the number of harmodynes or discordynes of the progressed aspect at that time to the
normal number of harmodynes or discordynes of each terminal directly involved in
the aspect, and one-half the number of harmodynes or discordynes of the progressed
aspect at that time to the normal number of harmodynes or discordynes of each
terminal not directly involved in the aspect.
At the front of Chapter 03, page 68, is given the harmony of each birth-chart terminal
in the,John Edwards chart. And on page 100 at the front of Chapter 04 is given the normal
harmony of each major progressed terminal in the chart during the years near and including
1941. And in Chapter 05 the peak power and the peak harmony of the major
progressed aspects now to be considered are calculated.
Progressed Saturn sextile birth-chart Pluto has a peak harmony of 8.97 harmodynes.
15.75 discordynes (birth-chart Saturn) plus 4.49 harmodynes (one-half 8.97 as it is
an indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Saturn terminal as
11.26 discordynes. 7.38 discordynes (progressed Saturn) plus 8.97 harmodynes
(direct terminal) gives the relative harmony of the progressed Saturn terminal as 1.59
harmodynes. 17.10 harmodynes (birth-chart Pluto) plus 8.97 harmodynes (direct
terminal) gives the birth-chart Pluto terminal the relative harmony of 26.07
harmodynes. 8.55 harmodynes (progressed Pluto) plus 4.49 harmodynes (one-half
8.97 as it is an indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the progressed Pluto
terminal as 13.04 harmodynes.
15.75 discordynes (birth-chart Saturn) plus 17.10 harmodynes (birth-chart Pluto)
gives 1.35 harmodynes. 1.35 plus .68 (one-half of 1.35) gives 2.03 harmodynes.
Multiplying 8.97 (peak harmony) by 3 gives 26.91 harmodynes. 26.91 plus 2.03
gives 28.94. Dividing 28.94 by 4 gives the approximate average relative harmony of
the aspect as 7.24 harmodynes.
Progressed Sun semi-square progressed Uranus has a peak harmony of 8.87
discordynes. .86 harmodynes (birth-chart Uranus) plus 4.44 discordynes (one-half
8.87 as it is an indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Uranus
terminal as 3.58 discordynes. .43 harmodynes (progressed Uranus) plus 8.87
discordynes gives the relative harmony of the progressed Uranus terminal as 8.44
discordynes. 5.07 harmodynes (birth-chart Sun) plus 4.44 discordynes (one-half
8.87 as it is an indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Sun
terminal as .63 harmodynes. 4.54 harmodynes (progressed Sun) plus 8.87
discordynes gives the relative harmony of the progressed Sun terminal as 4.33
5.07 harmodynes (birth-chart Sun) plus .86 harmodynes gives 5.93. 5.93 plus 2.97
(one-half of 5.93) gives 8.90 harmodynes. Multiplying 8.87 (peak harmony) by 3
gives 26.61 discordynes. 8.90 harmodynes plus 26.61 discordynes gives 17.71
discordynes. Dividing 17.71 by 4 gives the approximate relative harmony of the
aspect as 4.43 discordynes.
Progressed Moon square progressed Venus has a peak harmony of 1.94 discordynes
8.21 harmodynes (birth-chart Venus) plus .97 discordynes (one-half 1.93 as it is an
indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Venus terminal as
7.24 harmodynes. 5.61 harmodynes (progressed Venus) plus 1.93 discordynes gives
the relative harmony of the progressed Venus terminal as 3.68 harmodynes. 6.76
discordynes (birth-chart Moon) plus .97 discordynes (one-half 1.93 as it is an
indirect terminal) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Moon terminal as 7.73
discordynes. .48 discordynes (progressed Moon) plus 1.93 discordynes gives the
harmony of the progressed Moon terminal as 2.41 discordynes.
8.21 harmodynes (birth-chart Venus) plus 6.76 discordynes (birth-chart Moon) plus
4.12 harmodynes (one-half birth-chart Venus) plus .48 discordynes (one-fourteenth
birth-chart Moon) gives 5.09 harmodynes. Multiplying 1.93 by 3 gives 5.79
discordynes. 5.79 discordynes plus 5.09 harmodynes gives .70 discordynes.
Dividing .70 by 4 gives the approximate relative harmony of the aspect as .18
Precautionary Actions and Self
--The birth-chart and progressed constants of the 160 diseases (now expanded from
the original 120) which now follow in alphabetical order, and the brief instruction for
the stellar treatment of each, will be found valuable alike to the professional healer
and the layman. Before the disease develops, as well as when it is present, the
individual can apply to himself all the five steps embraced in stellar healing:
1. The layman who is capable of erecting and progressing his own chart, as an
increasing number now are, will know from the astrological constants toward what
diseases he has a predisposition, when they are most apt to develop, and what
precautionary actions he should take.
2. The birth-chart and progressed constants thus shown will indicate, as given in
Chapter 05, the healing thoughts he should apply to himself. The type of thoughts
which he should thus chiefly employ are those ruled by the same planet as the energy
which is advocated in the specific stellar treatment of the disease.
3. By studying B. of L. Courses 3, 5, 9 and 14 he will know how, and in what
direction, to change his attitude and his thinking advantageously. And the birth-chart
and progressed constants of the disease will also indicate, as given in Chapter 3
Course 14, and Chapters 7-10, Course 21, his special food requirements.
4. He can talk to such of his organs or functions as are not doing their work properly,
and give them suggestions that will encourage them to healthy activity.
5. He can apply the indicated planetary energy to the region needing such special
stellar treatment by tuning in on it, as explained in Chapter 04, and directing it to
the proper zone by, holding the region steadfastly before his attention.
Birth-chart constants: In nine cases out of ten an afflicted planet actually in the
zone where the disease manifests, and in the other one case out of ten the planet ruling
the zone, but elsewhere located, severely afflicted. Cancer rules the stomach, Virgo
rules the duodenum and intestines, Libra rules the upper kidneys, the ovaries and
internal generative organs, and Scorpio rules the bladder, sigmoid flexure, prostate
gland, uterus and external generative organs.
Progressed constants: Depend upon the nature of the disease, but when a planet in
the zone receives an adverse aspect is the most common factor. When there is an
operation performed there is always a progressed aspect involving Mars. The organs
and regions ruled by Libra and Scorpio are so closely associated in their functions
that an affliction from one commonly affects the other.
Stellar Treatment: Should be applied to the zone where the disease manifests and to
the zones occupied by the birth-chart and progressed planets mapping it. The
planetary energy used varies according to the nature of the disease and its constants.
Example: Chart 244. Female, May 22, 1894, 11 :59 a.m. 97W. 36N. Venus (internal
sex organs) opposition Saturn in Libra. May, 1913, as progressed, with Venus sextile
Mars r, Mercury trine Uranus p in Scorpio, Sun trine Saturn r, and Sun square Mars p,
had three serious major operations on the abdominal cavity.
Birth-chart constants: Prominent and usually afflicted Neptune or Pluto, and a
prominent and usually afflicted Mars. Afflictions to either Neptune or Pluto depress
the production of cortin, the strongest chemical with which the body fights toxins and
infection. Afflictions to Mars tend to exhaust both adrenaline and cortin.
Progressed constants: Progressed aspects, usually afflictions, involving both Mars
and Neptune, or involving both Mars and Pluto. The low output of cortin hormone
results in the incomplete metabolism of protein foods, with an accumulation of
toxins. The Mars influence tends to inflammation and to attract infection.
Stellar Treatment: Harmonious Sun energies should be applied to the zone
occupied by Neptune or Pluto, whichever seems most responsible, with a view to
overcoming the negativeness. The planetary antidote may also be used. Where Mars
is located in the chart, and where the abscess is located in the body, should receive the
soothing, clear green planetary energy of the Moon.
Example: Chart 245. Female, Oct. 30, 1888, 8:00 a.m. 70:15W. 44:40N. Neptune
and Pluto opposition Venus and Jupiter and square Moon. Mars sextile Sun and
Mercury and trine Moon. 1907, as progressed, M.C. trine Neptune r, Venus
inconjunct Neptune p, Uranus sesqui-square Pluto p, Mars square Uranus p and
sesqui-square Pluto p. An abscess formed under one of her arms (left), where
Neptune and Pluto are located.
Birth-chart constants: Mars, Saturn, Uranus or Pluto prominent in the order of
importance given. The detailed analysis of 100 charts progressed to the time of an
accident is given in the reference book, WHEN AND WHAT EVENTS WILL
Progressed constants: For accidents involving violence, including burns, falls,
bruises, broken bones, wounds and drowning, there is always a progressed aspect
within one-and-a-half degree of perfect
involving the planet Mars. A progressed
affliction to Saturn, Uranus or Pluto, in addition to the progressed aspect involving
Mars, increases the hazard. In asphyxiation and poisoning the Mars influence may be
lacking, but in such instances there is always, even in poisoning by snakebite or
spider bite, a progressed aspect involving Neptune.
Stellar Treatment: For prevention, the zones occupied by birth-chart and
progressed Mars should be given Moon planetary energy, and the planetary antidote
should be applied to Saturn, Uranus or Pluto if it is heavily afflicted at birth or by
progression. After the accident, similar treatment may be used.
Example: Chart 246. Male, Dec. 15, 1914, 10:05 a.m. 118:15W. 34N. Mars
conjunction Sun and opposition Saturn and Pluto. On Sept. 20, 1922, as progressed,
with Mercury semi-square Uranus r, Sun conjunction Mars p, and Sun opposition
Pluto p, backed into a tub of boiling water. He died shortly as the result of the burns.
Birth-chart constants: Either a very prominent Jupiter or a very prominent Saturn,
or both, usually afflicted.
Progressed constants: Almost any progressed aspect which affects the health
adversely through surfeit, through faulty elimination, through food deficiency, or
which through worry, anger or constant irritation depletes the adrenaline supply, will
increase this condition. But particularly any aspect to the planet which by its
prominence and birth-chart aspects maps the predisposition to the difficulty. The
Saturn type results from the lack of something. The lack of mineral salts with which
to neutralize the lactic acid and the acid toxins gives rise to this deficiency type of
acidosis. The Jupiter type results from too much of something. The eating of too rich
foods and too much fat tends to load the blood stream with more than can be burned,
and the diacetic and other fatty acids liberated in the blood stream give rise to the
repletion type of acidosis.

Research shows that one degree is always valid.
Stellar Treatment: First of all a proper diet should be insisted upon. If the condition
is mapped by Jupiter, the planetary energy of Mercury should be applied directly to
the zone of the body mapped by Jupiter in the birth-chart. If the condition is due to
Saturn, the planetary energy of Venus should be applied directly to the zone of the
body mapped by Saturn in the birth-chart. Often both planetary antidotes need thus to
Example: Chart 7127. Female, May 13, 1874, 6:25 a.m. 120:30W. 41:30N. Saturn
square Mercury and opposition Uranus. Jupiter angular and trine Sun. Spring, 1905,
as progressed, with Sun square Jupiter p, and Mars sesqui-square Saturn p, had
Birth-chart constants: Venus afflicted; usually heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect involving Venus or Mars, usually both.
Gonad (Mars Venus) glandular disturbance also affects the glands of the skin
(Venus), and when there is also a progressed aspect involving Mars, the
eruption--which may or may not have a blackhead centre--is attacked by microbes.
If Venus is not too heavily afflicted the acne subsides after the period of adolescent
Stellar Treatment: Rigorous diet in which cane sugar sweets and rich foods are
absent. Harmonious Saturn planetary energy applied to the zone occupied by Venus.
Also harmonious Moon energy applied to the zone occupied by Mars.
Example: Chart 7128. Male, Nov. 3, 1890, 5:00 a.m. 87:5SW. 43:02N. Venus
square Saturn, semi-square Mercury, semi-square Jupiter. Fall, 1902, as progressed,
with Venus semi-square Jupiter r, Mars conjunction Jupiter p, trine Neptune r, trine
Pluto p, developed acne. In later life suffered from overweight (Moon and Jupiter
angular) and face gets quite red and perspires easily (Mars opposition Moon and
(Same constants and treatment for nasal polypus.)
Birth-chart constants: Affliction in Libra or Scorpio, or their ruler severely
afflicted, especially if at the same time there is an affliction in Aries.
Progressed constants: Progressed aspect involving Venus or Mars, usually an
affliction. Scorpio rules the nose and the lower kidneys. Venus rules the upper
kidneys and also the pharyngeal tonsil, the enlargement of which constitutes
adenoids. These nasal difficulties arise from kidney disturbances which prevent the
proper filtering and handling of the urine.
Stellar Treatment: The planetary antidote energy of the affliction in Libra or
Scorpio or its afflicted ruler should be applied to the kidney region, and its planetary
antidote should be applied to the region occupied by the responsible progressed
Venus or Mars. To stop the swelling or growth, the kidneys must be strengthened.
Example: Chart 247. Male, Jan. 17, 1910, 9:00 p.m. 122:10W. 37:30N. Jupiter in
Libra opposition Saturn and Moon in Aries, Mars in Aries conjunction Moon and
Saturn and square Uranus and the Sun. By July, 1917, as progressed, with Venus
sextile Mars p, the adenoids had become so severe that both adenoids and tonsils
(Venus) were removed.
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and usually afflicted Saturn, especially when
afflicting the organ operated upon.
Progressed constants: A powerful progressed aspect involving Saturn, usually an
In the healing process following an operation, scar tissue forms which, when it
constricts, binds, or unduly unites, is called an adhesion. To free the adhered tissues,
the first operation may be followed by a second, and this may be followed by a third
or more operation.
Stellar Treatment: Venus planetary energies should be applied to the place of
Saturn in the birthchart, and to the place in the body where the adhesion occurs. To
break down the adhesion the masseur manipulates violently, and the surgeon cuts
through them with a knife. Venus energies afford the proper precautionary
treatment; but in addition to these, after the adhesion starts to form, Mars planetary
energies may be applied to the adhering tissues to help break them down.
Example: Chart 248. Female, Nov. 14, 1872, 11 :00 a.m. 74W. 40:43 N. Saturn
conjunction Asc., square Neptune, sextile Sun, trine Moon and trine Mars. March,
1915, as progressed, there was an operation for fibroid tumor and ovarian trouble.
Progressed Mars had just reached the square of Saturn r, and the operation was
immediately followed by unusually severe adhesions.
Birth-chart constants: Prominent and usually heavily afflicted Mars. An aspect of
Mars to the Moon increases the predisposition, especially if it is an affliction. Those
who become habitual drunkards usually also have a prominent and usually afflicted
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect, usually an affliction, involving Mars;
and commonly also a progressed aspect involving Neptune.
Stellar Treatment: The patient should be kept where unable to obtain alcoholic
drink of any kind for some weeks, during which time the healer should, by means of
suggestion, education, and applying the proper thoughts charged with planetary
energy, try to harmonize the inner conflict from which the patient is trying to escape
through getting drunk. This inner discord, from which the patient temporarily
escapes through inebriation, may or may not be closely associated with the Mars
thought-cells. This conflict within the unconscious mind must be located and its
contending factions reconciled. Until the nerves become stable, the patient should
take Vitamin B-1 in large amounts.
Example: Chart 7132. Female, June 24, 1913, 7:45 a.m. 75:14W. 43:06N. Mars
conjunction M.C., sextile Sun, sextile Moon, square Uranus; Mercury conjunction
Neptune. June, 1930, as progressed, with Mars semi-square Sun r and sextile Sun p,
Neptune semi-square Saturn r, Asc. semi-sextile Neptune r, took to drink and still
drinks heavily (1947).
Birth-chart constants: Prominent, and usually afflicted, Mercury and Moon.
Progressed constants: Afflictions to Mercury or the Moon at the same time there are
heavy afflictions to Neptune or Pluto.
Stellar Treatment: Mercury or Moon, whichever is afflicted by progressed aspect
should receive the planetary energy of its antidote. And in particular, the place of the
progressed afflicted Neptune or Pluto should receive the orange planetary energy of
the Sun to build up positive resistance to invading vibrations.
Usually loss of memory is coincident with toxic poisoning or some other serious
bodily disturbance which should also receive treatment according to its nature.
Example: Chart 249. Male, Nov. 22, 1863, 11:02 a.m. 93:30W. 41:15N. Mercury
conjunction M.C. and Mars, inconjunct Uranus. Moon square Asc. Nov. 1, 1932, as
progressed, with Mercury square Moon r, Sun square Pluto r, there was a temporary
loss of memory. Again on Oct. 10, 1933, while the same progressed aspects were in
force, there was another temporary loss of memory.
Constants for pernicious anemia the same except more heavily afflicted.
Birth-chart constants: Neptune and Saturn prominent, and usually severely
afflicted. Mars also afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, and usually one also involving
Saturn or Neptune, at the same time there is a heavy progressed affliction. Jupiter is
usually, but not always, involved.
Stellar Treatment: Anemia is oxygen starvation due to too little of the red
hemoglobin in the red blood corpuscles, or too few red blood corpuscles. In addition
to the proper foods to build red blood corpuscles, as explained in Chapter 10, Course 21,
there must be sufficient of the adrenalin hormones for handling the essential proteins.
As both Saturn and Neptune depress the manufacture of these secretions, Sun
planetary energy should be applied to the zones occupied by these planets to
overcome their negative action. The Sun planetary energy will also aid the thyroid in
energy production. The afflicted Mars zone should be harmonized and strengthened
through the application of Moon planetary energy. Proper diet and harmonious
positive thinking are essential.
Example: Chart 250. Male, May 16, 1889, 6:00 a.m. 87:50W. 42N. Saturn in
harmonious aspect with Mercury and the Moon, and thus prominent. Neptune
conjunction Sun, Mars and Pluto. Mars heavily afflicted through conjunction
Neptune and Pluto and opposition Moon. Suffered pernicious anemia, and on Oct. 6,
1932, as progressed, with Mars sextile Venus r and semi-sextile Neptune p, and
Saturn sextile Uranus p, had a severe attack and was taken to a hospital for a blood
transfusion. The heavy affliction at the time was Sun opposition Jupiter r.
A complete report based on 100 charts of those who have suffered from this disease is
given in the reference book, BODY DISEASE AND ITS STELLAR TREATMENT.
Birth-chart constants: Uranus and Mars both prominent, and usually afflicted.
Progressed constants: Progressed aspect involving Uranus and progressed aspect
involving Mars at the same time there is a heavy progressed affliction. This is a
typical Uranus disease, and high nervous tension commonly precedes an attack.
Overwork, prolonged irritation, or any condition which exhausts the adrenalin
supply and thus decreases the ability of the system to resist infection also contributes
Stellar Treatment: Diet and thought treatment should have for their object the
restoration of normal activity to the parathyroid glands. Jupiter planetary energy
should be applied to the zone mapped by Uranus. Moon planetary energy should be
applied to the zone mapped by Mars, and to the appendix to reduce the inflammation.
Example: Chart 252. Male, May 6, 1895, 3:00 a.m. 18E. 41N. Uranus opposition
Sun and Mercury, Mars angular and square Moon. August 23, 1926, as progressed,
with Venus conjunction Mars p, Mercury conjunction Mars r, operation for
appendicitis performed too late, as poison had already spread through system, and he
died. Progressed Sun is less than a degree and a half from inconjunct Uranus p, and its
conjunction with Neptune and sesqui-square Saturn p, acted as rallying forces.
Out of print, see Astrology: 30 Years Research.
Birth-chart constants: Jupiter and the upper-octave planets prominent, and usually
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect, usually an affliction, involving one or
more of the three upper-octave planets, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto.
Stellar Treatment: Two of the conditions which commonly contribute to hardening
of the arteries are the repletion (Jupiter) type of acidosis, and insufficient parathyrin
properly to handle calcium. The diet, therefore, should avoid rich food and use care
with sugar and fats, and should be rich in calcium, vitamin B-1, and vitamin D.
Mercury planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Jupiter, and the
planetary energy of its antidote should be applied to the zone occupied by the
responsible thought-cells mapped by the upper-octave planet.
Example: Chart 253. Male, September 15, 1857, 9:50 a.m. 84:30W. 39N. Jupiter
square M.C.. Moon and Mars; Pluto opposition Asc., Neptune opposition Sun,
Uranus sesqui-square Mercury.
March 8, 1930, as progressed, with Jupiter sesqui-square Sun r, Sun inconjunct Pluto
p, Mars inconjunct Pluto r, and Mars semi-square Mars r and Moon r as rallying
forces, died of hardening of the arteries.
Birth-chart constants: Saturn and Uranus prominent, usually severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving Saturn.
Stellar Treatment: Saturn, through depressing the functions, and depriving the
system of essential vitamins and minerals, causes certain elements in the blood
stream, which normally enter into harmless compounds but are unable to do so while
chemical imbalance lasts, to crystallize out and become deposited where they do
damage. High tension, induced by Uranus, depletes the parathryrin, which must be
present to handle calcium and keep the blood stream in chemical balance. Calcium,
vitamin B-1 and vitamin D are needed to assist the parathyroid glands, and variety of
mineral salts, vitamins and proteins to overcome the deficiency present. Venus
planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Saturn, and Jupiter
planetary energy to the zone occupied by Uranus.
Example: Chart 254. Male, Jan. 9, 1890, 4:00 a.m. 90:20W. 39:45N. Saturn
sesqui-square Sun, square Asc. Uranus square Sun, sextile Moon. In 1931, under Sun
opposition Saturn p, developed arthritis. May 15, 1933, as progressed, with Sun and
Venus both opposition Saturn r, became pronouncedly worse due to unwise diet.
Birth-chart constants: Mercury afflicted, and one or more of the upper-octave
planets (Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) prominent and afflicted. Either afflictions in
Gemini, or Mercury receiving heavy aspects.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mercury or a planet in Gemini.
Stellar Treatment: As asthma is a nervous disease, the diet should be such as to
enable the parathyroid glands to function better. In particular it should contain
abundant calcium, vitamin B-1, and vitamin D. The nervous tension of the individual
should be reduced through the application of Jupiter thinking and the application of
Jupiter planetary energy to the zone occupied by Mercury; also to the zone occupied
by Uranus if this planet is involved. If Neptune or Pluto is involved, the planetary
energy of its antidote should be applied to the zone it occupies, to the end of
decreasing the nervous tension and sensitiveness.
Example: Chart 255. Male, Dec. 5, 1859, 8:00 a.m. 79W. 42:50N. Mercury square
Neptune, Pluto sesqui-square Asc., Sun opposition Uranus in Gemini. December,
1909, as progressed, with Sun trine Uranus p in Gemini, Mercury square Moon r, and
the rallying force Mars square Saturn r, developed asthma from which he did not
recover for seven years.
Birth-chart constants: Saturn prominent and afflicted.
Progressed constants: Heavy afflictions to Saturn, or less severe aspects to Saturn
at the same time there are heavy adverse rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: This starving, or wasting away, of the tissues arises from any
one of several diseases of the Saturn type. Therefore, the disease which it
accompanies must receive appropriate treatment. Either the proper vitamins and
minerals are lacking in the diet, or the system, when they are present, is unable
properly to assimilate them. If, for instance, through mineral deposits resulting from
chemical imbalance, the blood supply does not reach the tissue, it will atrophy. As
the blood supply tends to follow the nerve currents, Sun electromagnetic energy
applied to the part affected is beneficial. Sun planetary energy should be applied as
directly as possible to the atrophying tissue. The other planetary energy to be used, in
addition to those to correct the specific disease responsible for the atrophy, is that of
Venus applied both to the zone occupied by Saturn, and to the tissues most affected.
Example: Chart 254. Male, Jan. 9, 1890, 4:00 a.m. 90:20W. 39:45N.
Saturn elevated, sesqui-square Sun and Jupiter, square Neptune and Pluto. May 15,
1933, as progressed, with Sun and Venus opposition Saturn r, his lower limbs
commenced rapidly to waste away as a result of arthritis which he had had for two
Birth-chart constants: Saturn and Mars prominent and usually afflicted, and either
Neptune or Pluto also prominent and usually afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving Mars.
Stellar Treatment: The body depends on adrenalin, ruled by Mars and Saturn, and
cortin, ruled by Mars and Pluto, to conduct chemical warfare on bacteria and to
neutralize toxins. Afflictions involving Saturn or Mars tend to deplete the supply of
adrenalin. Afflictions involving Mars tend to deplete the supply of cortin. Afflictions
involving Neptune or Pluto tend to suppress the manufacture of cortin. With the
system saturated with toxins, when a progressed aspect involving Mars forms, focal
infection develops. The diet, therefore, and the treatment, should be to encourage the
manufacture of adrenalin and cortin. The zone occupied by Mars should be given
Moon planetary energy. Venus planetary energy should be applied to the zone
occupied by Saturn, and the energy which is its planetary antidote should be applied
to the zone occupied by Neptune or Pluto.
Example: Chart 256. Female, Sept. 25, 1907, 11:20 p.m. 71W. 42N. Saturn
opposition Sun and square Pluto, Mars opposition Asc. and Neptune. Nov. 24, 1926,
as progressed, with Sun square Mars r, and Asc. opposition Mars p, autointoxication
became so severe that the mind (M.C. opposition Mercury r) began to fail.
Birth-chart constants: Heavy affliction in Libra, or less commonly in Scorpio; or a
prominent and afflicted Uranus.
Progressed constants: Progressed aspect involving planet in Libra or Scorpio, or
affliction involving Uranus.
Stellar Treatment: There may be, as indicated by the planet in Libra or Scorpio, a
condition of the kidneys and bladder which makes retention of the urine impossible.
The planetary energy of its antidote should be applied to the zone where this planet is
located. On the other hand, as indicated by a prominent and afflicted Uranus, the
condition may arise through lack of nerve control. Diet should have abundant
calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D. Jupiter planetary energy should be applied to
the zone occupied by Uranus. This condition in children often arises from a mental
condition. In such cases whipping the child increases the difficulty, as fear decreases
nervous control. Psychoanalysis, and the application of suggestion during treatment
at the fifth station should be used instead. A calm, confident state of mind, free from
rebellion against real or imaginary injustice favors improvement.
Example: Chart 247. Male, Jan. 17, 1910, 9:00 p.m. 122:10W. 37:30N. Jupiter in
Libra square Neptune, square Uranus, and opposition Moon and Saturn. Progressed
Neptune was parallel Uranus r throughout life. When small he was repeatedly
whipped for bed wetting.
Birth-chart constants: Jupiter prominent and afflicted, or heavy afflictions
involving the Moon or an afflicted planet in Cancer.
Progressed constants: Progressed aspect, usually an affliction, involving Jupiter,
Saturn, or the Moon.
Stellar Treatment: So-called bilious attacks are due to taking into the stomach more
food than it can handle, or kinds of food it cannot handle. To a person who
customarily overloads his stomach, even a slight aspect of progressed Moon to
Saturn may bring on a bilious attack. Saturn depresses the vitality and thus the
stomach has insufficient energy to do its work. Jupiter overloads the stomach and
gives it more work than it can do. The stomach should be given a rest, and when
eating is resumed the diet should be carefully selected, and meals should be spaced
sufficiently to complete digestion. Both Venus and Sun planetary energy should be
applied to the zone occupied by Saturn, if its thought-cells are the cause of the
difficulty. If the Moon thought-cells are chiefly responsible, the zone it occupies
should receive Mars planetary energy. If Jupiter thought-cells are the chief
offenders, Mercury planetary energy should be applied to the zone it occupies.
Example: Chart 247A. Male, Jan. 17, 1910, 9:00 p.m. 122:10W. 37:20N. Jupiter
opposition Saturn, both square Uranus, Moon conjunction Mars and square Sun.
During the whole time Sun was trine Jupiter suffered from bilious attacks. Especially
severe early April, 1926, as progressed, with Sun trine Jupiter r, Saturn square
Neptune r, Mercury square Mars r, and Moon inconjunct Moon r.
Birth-chart constants: Affliction in Scorpio, or less frequently a severe affliction
involving Mars or Pluto.
Progressed constants: An aspect to the afflicted planet in Scorpio, or a heavy
affliction involving Mars or Pluto.
Stellar Treatment: The zones occupied by the planetary constants of the
responsible disease should receive the planetary energy of their antidotes. The
energy of its planetary antidote should be applied to the zone occupied by the
afflicted planet in Scorpio. If Mars or Pluto is involved, as is usually the case, Moon
planetary energies should be applied to the zone occupied by this planet, and to the
region of Scorpio. Both the planetary energy of the Moon, and the soothing
electromagnetic energy of the Moon, applied directly to the region over the bladder
are highly beneficial in all bladder difficulties.
Example: Chart 257. Female, Feb. 16, 1893, 10:12 p.m. 77:40W. 42:40N. Uranus in
Scorpio opposition Mars, Pluto square Moon. April 15, 1929, as progressed, with
Venus sesqui-square Uranus r in Scorpio, Pluto semi-square Jupiter r, and Mars
square Sun r, had an infected throat accompanied by severe trouble with the bladder.
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and afflicted Saturn and a prominent and
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, and commonly also an aspect
involving Saturn or Neptune.
Stellar Treatment: The ability of the blood to coagulate is largely determined by the
amount of adrenalin present in the blood stream. Vitamin K also promotes the
clotting of blood and helps prevent profuse bleeding. In those who are chronic
bleeders, suffering from hemophilia, which is usually hereditary, there is a tendency
to profuse and uncontrollable hemorrhage, even from the slightest wounds.
When excessive bleeding takes place, either from these chronic bleeders, or in the
case of a person who normally does not thus bleed, the progressed influence will be
found to be an aspect involving Mars. This is commonly true in excessive
menstruation as well as in bleeding caused by injury. Afflictions to either Mars or
Saturn tend to deplete the adrenaline supply. The diet, thought-treatment, and
planetary energy applied, therefore, should have for their end the strengthening of
the adrenal glands. Vitamin K should be included in the diet to assist coagulation.
The zones in which Saturn and Neptune are located should receive the planetary
energy of their antidote, and also Sun planetary energy to give the thought-cells
greater vigor and stability. The zone occupied by Mars should be treated with Moon
Example: Chart 25 8. Male, Aug. 16, 1909, 5:30 p.m. 7:30E. 50N. Saturn square
Uranus and Neptune, Neptune opposition Uranus. He is a chronic bleeder. Blood
does not clot even from a slight cut. October, 1931, as progressed, with Saturn
inconjunct Sun r, Venus square Neptune p, and Mars inconjunct Mercury r, he had a
tooth pulled, and it required two blood transfusions to save his life.
