Chapter 9
Cyst -- Hay Fever
THE One Degree Rule For All
Progressed Aspects is Valid
--For their research work near the end of 1947, Elbert Benjamine and W. M. A.
Drake rechecked the progressed aspects in all the research charts (reports on some of
which had been made before there was any ephemeris of Pluto) in which the original
report indicated that over one degree must be allowed for progressed aspects
involving the Sun or Mars. Their findings, published in C. of L. Astrological Report
No. 61,
1
in the January, 1948, number of The Rising Star, show that when all the
parallel aspects are carefully calculated the one degree orb for all progressed
aspects--major, minor and transits--including those involving Sun or Mars, is
valid.
But it was found--and with other planets than Sun and Mars--that in judging a
particular event cannot take place because the relevant aspect is a little beyond the
one degree orb, it is essential carefully to ascertain that ALL parallel aspects by
progression involving the planet are also more than one degree from perfect. For a
parallel aspect by progression, while it is within the one degree of perfect, is able to
widen--both while the zodiacal aspect is applying and while the zodiacal aspect is
separating --the influence of the zodiacal aspect, so that sometimes the event
indicated by the zodiacal aspect will take place while the zodiacal progressed aspect
is as much as a degree and a half from perfect.
CYST
Birth-chart constants: Jupiter afflicted, usually in Scorpio or other watery sign.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving Jupiter at the same time there are
severe rallying forces.

Stellar Treatment: These swellings, which may occur in various parts of the body,
are essentially bags with more or less fluid contents. The diet should contain ample
sulfur, and care should be taken not to eat too much sugar and fat. The indications are
that there is incomplete burning of such fuels, and that the insulin supply needs
strengthening. Harmonious Mercury planetary energy should be applied to the zone
mapped by Jupiter, and Mercury planetary energy should be applied to the cyst.
Example: Chart 6113. Male, August 23, 1888 4:00 a.m. 74W. 40:43N. Jupiter in
Scorpio square Mercury. In July, 1912, as progressed, with Jupiter square Mercury r,
and Asc. square Mars p (operation), had an operation to remove two cysts at base of
spine. The afflicted Mercury was in the last degree of Leo, mapping the base of spine.
DEAFNESS
Birth-chart constants: Moon severely afflicted by Saturn. If Saturn is prominent
and afflicted a severely afflicted Moon may cause trouble with the hearing. Even a
powerful harmonious aspect, such as a trine, between Moon and Saturn, may give
hearing difficulties of less severity if the Moon is otherwise heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Saturn, with severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The thought-cells mapped in the birth-chart by the Moon need to
be harmonized and strengthened through the application of Mars planetary energy.
The zone mapped by Saturn should be given Venus planetary energy, and also Sun
planetary energy to arouse the thought-cells into activity. Solar electromagnetic
energy should be applied to the ears.
Example: Chart 275. Male, October 22, 1905, 12:55 p.m. 90W. 30N. Moon
opposition Saturn. In July, 1924, as progressed, with Venus trine Saturn r, and Venus
square Mars p as a rallying force, he began to lose his hearing.
DEMENTIA PRAECOX
Birth-chart constants: Negative planets quite prominent and Mercury or the Moon,
often both, severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: A powerful aspect involving Mercury or the Moon at the
same time there are severe afflicting rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: This disease may be due to a toxic, or other condition which
causes alteration in the physical substance of the brain. The more common form is
mal-adjustment of the mental factors giving rise to an attitude in which the mind flees
reality and lives in an interior world of fantasy. When there is lack of willingness to
face conditions which are present, especially when some event causes a great shock,
there is a tendency thus to retreat within.
background image
If there has been physical injury, or if there has been toxic poisoning, this condition
must be treated according to its nature. But in all cases the patient must be reeducated
to a willingness to enjoy life and face its responsibilities. An analysis of the
circumstances leading to the trouble will indicate the best method of approach in this
reeducation. The Moon and Mercury thought-cells should be given their planetary
antidotes. Proper suggestion during the stellar treatment may be used to advantage.
Example: Chart 2042. Female, September 25, 1907, 11:20 p.m. 71W. 42N. Neptune
conjunction Asc., Saturn conjunction M.C., Moon sesqui-square Uranus, and
Mercury square Neptune and the Asc. November 24, 1926, as progressed, with
Mercury trine Neptune r, M.C. opposition Mercury r, Uranus sesqui-square Moon r,
Sun square Mars r, and Asc. opposition Mars p, developed dementia praecox.
DENGUE FEVER
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Venus prominent and usually afflicted.
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect involving Mars, and a progressed aspect
involving Venus, usually afflictions.
Stellar Treatment: The virus of this tropical disease is carried by a mosquito. The
patient should go to bed and remain there until the eruptions disappear. Fruit juice
diet and absence from alcohol are recommended. Cold sponging, cooling
applications, and lunar electromagnetic energy may be used to reduce the fever and
relieve the headache. The zone occupied by Mars should be given Moon planetary
energy, and the zone occupied by Venus should be given Saturn planetary energy.
Example: Chart 7209. Male, October 6, 1895, 8:56 a.m. 77:26W. 37:32N. Mars
conjunction Sun, Venus in the tenth square Neptune and Pluto. July 7, 1924, as
progressed, with Mars semi-square Venus r, Mars sesqui-square Neptune r, and Sun
opposition Moon r, took down with dengue fever.
DERMATITIS
Birth-chart constants: Venus afflicted, especially by one of the upper-octave
planets, and one or more of the upper-octave planets prominent.
Progressed constants: An aspect to Venus and an aspect to an upper-octave planet.
Stellar Treatment: The diet should contain calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D,
and the thinking should be calm and deliberate to strengthen the parathyroid glands
and reduce the hypersensitivity of the nervous system. Planetary energy the antidote
of the upper-octave planet responsible for the hypersensitivity should be applied to
the zone it occupies. The diet should also contain vitamin A, vitamin E, iodine and
copper to strengthen the thyroid gland. Saturn planetary energy should be applied to
the zone occupied by Venus.
background image
Example: Chart 7210. Male, September 26, 1924, 5:25 a.m. 86:15W. 41:41N.
Mercury sextile Pluto and opposition Uranus, Venus conjunction Neptune and
opposition Mars. In March, 1926, as progressed, with Sun semi-square Venus p, and
Venus inconjunct Uranus r, developed dermatitis.
DIABETES MELLITUS
Birth-chart constants: Saturn and Jupiter prominent and afflicted, frequently
forming an affliction to each other.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Jupiter or Saturn, often an aspect
involving each.
Stellar Treatment: Over-eating, or the eating of too rich foods strains the insulin
supply; and worry, anxiety, emotional excitement, or over exertion releases
adrenalin which neutralizes the sugar storing power of insulin, causing glycogen to
be released into the blood. When the insulin supply is exhausted, sugar can no longer
be transformed into glycogen and stored, nor transformed into fat. Instead it remains
in the blood as simple sugar, which being soluble, is washed out of the body and lost.
In diabetes, therefore, the diet should receive special attention, and a type of thinking
cultivated which is free from anxiety, strain and excitement. The dynamic structure
mapped by Saturn should receive the planetary energy of Venus. The dynamic
structure mapped by Jupiter should be given the planetary energy of Mercury. And
the thought-treatment of the solar plexus should be such as to relieve strain, tensions
and annoyances.
Example: Chart 276. Male, September 24, 1887, 1:00 a.m. 9:15E. 49:10N. Saturn
angular and conjunction Asc. making the square of angular Jupiter. Near his 28th
birthday, as progressed, with Jupiter semi-sextile Uranus r, Venus semi-square
Saturn p, and Mars semi-sextile Saturn r and square Pluto p, he developed diabetes.
DIPHTHERIA
Birth-chart constants: Negative planets prominent, and often an affliction in
Taurus.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving Mars, and usually
also an aspect involving Mercury.
Stellar Treatment: This is a contagious disease which during an epidemic often has
a higher fatality than almost any other illness. The membranes, particularly those of
the tonsils and region of the throat and mouth, become the breeding ground of bacilli
which form a false membrane, known as diphtheric membrane. A progressed
affliction to Mercury, acting on the parathyroid glands, makes the membranes
unduly sensitive. The influence of the negative planets lower the vital power, and the
progressed aspect involving Mars lowers the adrenalin and cortin output, the
background image
chemicals the body uses to fight invaders. The diet should alkalize the blood stream.
Jupiter planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Mercury, and
Moon planetary energy to the zone occupied by Mars. Solar electromagnetic energy
should be used to build vitality, and lunar electromagnetic energy and Moon
planetary energy should be applied to the parts which are inflamed.
Example: Chart 277. Male, October 3, 1908, 6:05 p.m. 122:30W. 47:45N. Moon
opposition Neptune from tenth to fourth. In July, 1915, as progressed, with Asc. in
Taurus opposition Mercury r, Mercury semi-square Mars r, and Sun square Neptune
r, had diphtheria.
DROPSY
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and afflicted Moon.
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect involving the Moon at the same time
there are afflicting rallying forces, especially an affliction involving the Sun.
Stellar Treatment: Dropsy is due to imbalance of the salt and water content of the
body, governed chiefly by the back pituitary, which in turn responds to the Moon.
Thyroxin, which responds to the Sun and also to Venus, tends to drive water from the
body, while pituitrin tends to retain it. Therefore the diet and treatment should have
for object restoring the back pituitary gland to normal, and strengthening the thyroid.
Iodine in the food is a necessity for proper thyroid activity. Emotional stresses should
be avoided. Mars planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by the
Moon, and solar electromagnetic energy and Sun planetary energy should be applied
to the thyroid gland.
Example: Chart 6170. Male, July 24, 1861, 11:00 p.m. 92W. 43N. Moon
sesqui-square Mercury, square Uranus and opposition Saturn. April 5, 1926, as
progressed, with Venus trine Moon r, Uranus semi-square Sun r, and Asc.
semi-sextile Mars r in Leo, ruptured (Mars) mitrael valve in heart, after which he
suffered dropsy until he died in 1932.
DUODENUM TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Affliction in Virgo; less commonly a severely afflicted
Mercury.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving the planet in
Virgo or Mercury.
Stellar Treatment: In all digestive difficulties the diet and the thinking are about
equally important.
Correcting one without correcting the other is never as effective as it should be.
Mental tensions, overwork, and in particular worry and irritation must be avoided
and pleasant, constructive thinking cultivated in their stead. The planetary energy
background image
which is the antidote of the afflicted planet in Virgo should be applied to the Virgo
zone, if there is such an afflicted planet; and if Mercury is afflicted, Jupiter planetary
energy should be given to the zone it occupies.
Example: Chart 1926. Male, October 11, 1878, 3:15 a.m. 1:55W. 53:15N. Uranus in
Virgo semi-square Sun; Mercury opposition Moon. In 1928, with Mercury square
Saturn p, and Jupiter inconjunct Uranus p in Virgo, a duodenal ulcer formed. In April
of that year, as progressed, with Mars (operation) sesqui-square Saturn r, he
underwent an operation for its removal.
EAR TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Moon afflicted by Saturn. Less severe difficulty may
develop if Saturn is prominent and makes even a powerful harmonious aspect with
the Moon, especially if the Moon is heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Saturn, with severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The thought-cells mapped in the birth-chart by the Moon need to
be harmonized and strengthened through the application of Mars planetary energy.
The zone mapped by Saturn should be given Venus planetary energy, and also Sun
planetary energy to arouse them into activity. Solar electromagnetic energy should
be applied to the ears.
Example: Chart 7262. Male, March 5, 1911, 4:00 a.m. 87:37W. 41:50N. Moon
conjunction Saturn, semi-square Pluto, opposition Jupiter. In July, 1920, as
progressed, with Pluto semi-square Moon r, and Asc. square Saturn r, developed
trouble with his ears.
ECZEMA
Birth-chart constants: Upper-octave planets prominent, and Venus prominent and
severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving an upper-octave planet, and an aspect
involving Venus; especially an aspect of Venus to an upper-octave planet.
Stellar Treatment: The upper-octave planet through its influence on the
parathyroid glands gives a chemical imbalance which makes the individual unduly
sensitive; and this sensitiveness, due to the prominent and afflicted Venus, is
especially noticeable in the skin. Venus influences the thyroid gland, the secretion of
which directly affects the skin.
background image
Careful attention should be given to the diet that there may be no indigestion, that the
thyroid has iodine, that there is sufficient copper for blood building, the vitamins
required by Venus, and calcium and vitamin D for the parathyroid glands. The zone
occupied by the responsible upper-octave planet should receive the planetary energy
of that planet's antidote, the zone occupied by Venus should receive Saturn planetary
energy, and lunar electromagnetic energy should be applied to the region where the
eczema appears. The individual may have an idiosyncrasy as to certain items of diet,
or be sensitive to wool clothing, to dyes in the clothing, or to other things usually
unnoticed by other people.
Example: Chart 7129. Female, March 10, 1909, 2:00 a.m. 87:37W. 41:50N. Uranus
and Neptune in angles, and they, as well as Pluto, aspecting both Sun and Moon.
Venus sesqui-square Moon. March 10, 1920, as progressed, with Pluto trine Moon r,
Jupiter opposition Venus r, Mercury semi-square Uranus r, Asc. sextile Venus r, and
Venus sextile Uranus r, developed a bad case of eczema on arm (Pluto in Gemini in
sixth).
EMPYEMA
Birth-chart constants: Pluto or Neptune afflicted, and either an affliction in Gemini
or Mercury severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Pluto or Neptune at the same time there
are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The diet should be rich in calcium, vitamin B complex and
vitamin D. Mucus forming foods should be avoided. The zone occupied by the
aspected Pluto or Neptune should receive the planetary energy of its antidote, and
also the vitalizing Sun planetary energy. The affliction in Gemini should be given its
planetary antidote, and the region of the empyema should be given solar
electromagnetic energy. Everything should be done to build up the vitality.
Example: Chart 7263. Male, September 17, 1889, 7:06 p.m. 73:40W. 41N. Neptune
and Pluto in Gemini sesqui-square Mercury and Uranus. On May 31, 1900, as
progressed, with Pluto in Gemini sesqui-square Uranus p and Mercury r, Sun trine
Pluto r in Gemini, and Mars sextile Moon r, developed empyema. Later a piece of rib
was taken out (Mars) to drain off the pus.
EPILEPSY
Birth-chart constants: Affliction involving Mars, and affliction involving Venus.
Progressed constants: An aspect to Mars and an aspect to Venus. There are
probably other constants, but at present we have too few data of epileptics to be able
to discover them.
Stellar Treatment: The abnormal nervous tension, and congestion of electrical
energy which gives rise to these seizures seems to derive from imbalanced secretions
background image
of the glands influenced by Mars and Venus. The first seizures often arrive at the age
of puberty. The diet should be such as that indicated for an afflicted Mars, and for an
afflicted Venus. Strain and excitement and stimulating food should be avoided. The
zone occupied by Mars should receive Moon planetary energy. The zone occupied
by Venus should be given Saturn planetary energy. Lunar electromagnetic energy
should be applied to the medulla oblongata. Hospitals use dilantin for grand mal, and
tridione for petit mal.
Example: Chart 7264. Male, January 9, 1922, 3:00 a.m. 104:45W. 42:15N. Mars
conjunction Asc., Venus square Saturn and opposition Pluto. June 1, 1938, as
progressed, with Mars semi-sextile Jupiter r and sextile M.C. p, and with Venus
sextile Asc. p, had first epileptic attack.
ERYSIPELAS
Birth-chart constants: Upper octave planets prominent, Venus prominent and
afflicted, Mars prominent and afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving an upper-octave planet, an aspect
involving Venus, and an affliction involving Mars.
Stellar Treatment: The treatment as to diet and irritations should be that advocated
for eczema, with the addition of the dietary factors recommended for an afflicted
Mars. For in erysipelas there is also a Mars condition, with inflammation of the skin,
and fever, which may run so high as to occasion delirium. Cold applications are
commonly used to reduce the fever. Lunar electromagnetic energy should be applied
to the inflamed areas for the same purpose. Like many Mars diseases it is somewhat
contagious. The zone occupied by Mars should be treated with Moon planetary
energy, the zone occupied by the upper-octave planet should receive the planetary
energy of its antidote, and the zone occupied by Venus should receive Saturn
planetary energy.
Example: Chart 280. Male, March 27, 1902, 3:00 p.m. 90W. 40:30N. Pluto in the
tenth, Neptune opposition Uranus in the fourth, Mars conjunction Sun, Venus
opposition Asc. and square Moon. In February, 1930, as progressed, with Venus
square Pluto r, Asc. square Uranus p, Mars square Saturn p, and Mercury conjunction
Mars p, he had erysipelas.
EXOPHTHALMIC GOITER
Birth-chart constants: Sun afflicted by Uranus, or less commonly a prominent
Uranus and the Sun severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: Sun aspecting Uranus, or Sun involved in severe affliction,
especially if Venus at the same time is involved in an affliction.
background image
Stellar Treatment: The diet should be that advocated for a weak thyroid gland and
weak parathyroid glands, containing iodine, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin D. The
thought education, and the thought treatment of the solar plexus, should have for
object a calm, poised and unemotional state of mind. Emotional stress and
excitement should be discouraged. Jupiter planetary energy should be applied to the
zone occupied by Uranus and to the zone occupied by the Sun. Not infrequently, due
to the sensitiveness of the nervous system and the excitable tendency, digestive
troubles are also present. These should receive proper treatment.
Example: Chart 279. Female, October 26, 1873, 9:00 a.m. 84W. 43:30N. Sun square
Uranus. In October, 1909, as progressed, with Sun trine Uranus r, Venus opposition
Pluto p, she developed exophthalmic goiter.
EYE TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Moon severely afflicted by Mars. If Mars is prominent and
afflicted, a severely afflicted Moon may cause trouble with the eyes. Even a strong
harmonious aspect, such as a trine between Moon and Mars may cause trouble with
the eyes of a less severe nature, if the Moon is otherwise severely afflicted. When
these constants are not present the eyes may give trouble, not because of any defect in
them, but due to nervous depletion.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars with severe rallying forces. If due
to nervous depletion the Mars aspect may be absent, and an affliction involving
Mercury or the upper-octave planets may be present instead.
Stellar Treatment: If the difficulty is due to nervous depletion, the vitality should be
built up and the diet should contain ample vitamin A and vitamin B-1. But in typical
eye troubles the eyes themselves should be treated with lunar electromagnetic
energy, and the zone occupied by the Moon should be strengthened by adding to it
harmonious Moon planetary energy.
Example: Chart 1804. Female, February 2, 1903, 11:50 p.m. 81W. 40N. Mars
opposition Moon. Has had much difficulty with the eyes. In the summer of 1909, as
progressed, with Mars opposition Moon r, and Moon square Mars r, became near
sighted.
FAINTING
Birth-chart constants: Sun afflicted or a planet in Leo afflicted, and Pluto or
Neptune heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect to the Sun or the planet in Leo at the same time
there is a progressed affliction involving Neptune or Pluto.
Stellar Treatment: Fainting is due to a momentary failure of the blood supply to the
brain. As the heart action is usually depressed at the time of fainting, the afflicted Sun
should be strengthened by applying to it harmonious Sun planetary energy, or the
background image
planet in Leo should be given the energy of its planetary antidote. Glandular balance
should be restored through proper diet and thinking. And the mental or toxic
condition indicated by the afflicted Neptune or Pluto should be given attention. The
energy of its planetary antidote should be applied to the zone occupied by the
afflicted Neptune or Pluto.
Example: Chart 7265. Female, July 27, 1896, 1:00 a.m. CST. 97:53W. 36:24N.
Venus in Leo sextile Pluto. In September, 1929, as progressed, with Venus square
Neptune p, started to have fainting spells. These continued for years.
FATTY TUMOR
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and severely afflicted Jupiter.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving the Sun, and an aspect involving
Jupiter.
Stellar Treatment: Insulin tries to get rid of the overtaxing burden of fat in the blood
due to overeating, or to eating too rich foods, in proportion to the amount of exercise
taken. In the effort to rid the blood of fuel which cannot be burned, it finds irritated
spots a convenient dumping ground, and thus a fatty tumor develops. Proper exercise
and a diet less rich in fat producing qualities is the first need. Then, as there is too
much insulin in proportion to adrenalin and thyroxin, the zone occupied by Jupiter
should be treated with Mercury planetary energy. In addition, there should be iodine
in the food, and the zone occupied by the Sun should be given Venus planetary
energy, and the thyroid gland should be treated with solar electromagnetic energy.
Example: Chart 281. Female, October 20, 1878, 11:00 p.m. 94:45W. 38N. Jupiter
opposition Asc. and square Sun and Mercury. By August, 1933, after Sun had just
passed the semi-square Jupiter p, and had reached the sesqui-square of Neptune r,
and Jupiter was square Neptune p, four fatty tumors had developed.
FEMALE TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: A severely afflicted Venus. More pronounced if there is also
an afflicted planet in Libra or Scorpio.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving Venus. If an
operation takes place there is an aspect to Mars.
background image
Stellar Treatment: A wide variety of complaints come under this heading. But in all
of them the thought-cells mapped by Venus are chiefly responsible. If Saturn is not
the planet afflicting Venus, its energy should be applied to the zone occupied by
Venus. When Saturn is the planet afflicting Venus, or when the difficulty involves a
negative planet, Sun planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by
Venus or the negative planet. Solar electromagnetic energy should be applied to the
female organs. The diet should be that recommended for an afflicted Venus, ample
wheat germ being especially beneficial. There is also present an unregulated
emotional factor which requires mental education and thought treatment.
Example: Chart 1907. Female, December 9, 1893, 6:00 p.m. CST. 83:30W. 32:45N.
Venus semi-square Sun and square Uranus. Mars conjunction Uranus in Scorpio.
There was chronic female trouble which in July, 1931, as progressed, with Mercury
semi-square Venus p, Sun sesqui-square Neptune r, Mars opposition Neptune p, and
Uranus conjunction Mars r, resulted in an operation. It was unsuccessful and was
later repeated.
FIBROUS TUMOR
Birth-chart constants: Saturn prominent and afflicted. If the tumor is of the uterus,
which is most common, Venus afflicted, and a planet in Scorpio or an afflicted Mars.
Progressed constants: A discordant aspect involving Saturn.
Stellar Treatment: Solar electromagnetic energy should be applied to the fibrous
growth, and Sun planetary energy and Venus planetary energy should be applied to
the zone occupied by Saturn. If the tumor is of the uterus the zone occupied by Venus
should be given Sun planetary energy, and the thyroid gland should be given solar
electromagnetic energy. The diet should be that recommended for Saturn and for
Venus, ample wheat germ being beneficial. Some essential thing is lacking in both
the diet and in the thinking. There is emotional imbalance, or lack of emotional
expression, and a self-centered quality where affectional matters are concerned. The
mental reeducation should be directed toward establishing normal harmonious
affectional emotions and toward restoring the thyroid gland to normal activity.
Example: Chart 248. Female, November 14, 1872, 11:00 a.m. 74W. 40:43N. Saturn
conjunction Asc. and square Neptune, Sun in Scorpio, Venus square Mars. In March,
1915, as progressed, with Mars square Saturn r, a fibrous tumor of the uterus was
removed by surgical operation.
FOOT TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Afflicted planet in Pisces or a prominent Neptune.
Progressed constants: A discordant aspect involving the planet in Pisces, or a
discordant aspect involving Neptune.
background image
Stellar Treatment: Foot trouble is a term embracing a number of difficulties that
may affect the feet. If the difficulty is mapped by a planet in Pisces, the planetary
energy of the antidote of this planet should be applied to the zone of the feet.
Electromagnetic energy applied to the feet is often beneficial. If Neptune is afflicted,
Saturn planetary energy and Sun planetary energy should be applied to the zone
occupied by Neptune. Usually there is a physical condition, such as improper shoes
or improper exercise which needs attention. Fallen arches, for instance, respond to
proper shoes and systematic exercise to strengthen the foot muscles.
Example: Chart 6119. Female, March 4, 1899, 0:54 a.m. 85:30W. 45N. Sun and
Mercury in Pisces square Pluto, Mercury square Saturn, Neptune opposition Saturn
and square Mercury. She had foot trouble constantly, as progressed Pluto was square
Sun in Pisces the first 54 years of her life. In February, 1935, as progressed, with
Pluto square Sun r, Venus in Pisces semi-square Mercury p, and Sun square Mars r
(operation), it became so serious an operation was performed on her feet.
FUNGUS GROWTH
Birth-chart constants: Prominent and heavily afflicted Neptune.
Progressed constants: An aspect to Neptune at the same time there are severe
rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: During World War II penicillin was successfully used in the
treatment of a variety of fungus growths contacted in the South Pacific. The vitality
should be built up, and normal activity restored to the adrenal glands, the secretions
of which are depressed through the influence of Neptune. Sun planetary energy
should be applied to the zone occupied by Neptune, and solar electromagnetic energy
should be applied to the region attacked by the fungus growth. The thinking should
be positive and of the Sun type. The diet should be ample, and contain calcium,
vitamin B-1 and vitamin D.
Example: Chart 7266. Male, October 17, 1881, 9:00 a.m. 87:35W. 37:58N. Neptune
conjunction Saturn, opposition Mercury, and square Moon. In September, 1906,
when progressed Sun reached the conjunction of afflicted Mercury r, and progressed
Mars was sextile Neptune p, the fungus growth got a hold in his throat (Neptune in
Taurus) and bronchial (Mercury) tubes. During forty years his health was poor and
he was unable to get rid of it. On September 13, 1946, as progressed, with Sun
sesqui-square Neptune p, and M.C. opposition Neptune p, he died of this chronic
fungus growth.
GALL BLADDER TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and heavily afflicted Mars.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars at the same time there are severe
rallying forces.
background image
Stellar Treatment: When the diet is deficient in the alkaline producing minerals, the
blood stream becomes acid. An afflicted Mars tends to depress the secretion of
adrenalin and cortin which tend to neutralize the acid condition. The bile and the gall
bladder are under the influence of Mars, and when the blood stream is acid it may
cause inflammation of the bile ducts and the gall bladder. A diet should be used
which will alkalize the blood stream. The thinking should be harmonious and
soothing, of Moon quality, Moon planetary energy should be applied to the zone
occupied by Mars, and lunar electromagnetic energy should be applied to the region
of the gall bladder. If there is a progressed Saturn aspect, indicating the likelihood of
gall stones, there should be the additional treatment given under that heading.
Example: Chart 7056. Male, February 7, 1892, 6:30 a.m. 74W. 40:43N. Mars in the
tenth opposition Moon, Pluto and Neptune. In spring of 1927 the gall bladder became
inflamed. On March 6, 1927, as progressed, with Mars square Jupiter p and square
Saturn r, had an operation on the gall bladder.
GALLSTONE
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Saturn prominent and afflicted, usually aspecting
each other.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, and an aspect involving Saturn, at
the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Gall stones (bilary calculi) are hard masses, composed of
cholesterine, an abundant constituent of bile, in combination with various calcarious
substances. The acidity of the blood stream is increased through the dietary
deficiencies developed under the influence of Saturn. Sedentary habits increase the
chemical imbalance through lack of proper elimination. People in the close
confinement of jails, and cows that are kept closely in stable in winter, are most
frequent sufferers from gall stones. The toxic blood stream may cause mucus to form
in the gall bladder or bile ducts, about which the concretions form as hard masses.
Heavy doses of olive oil are often used to cause the stones to pass out of the body. To
the treatment advocated for gall bladder trouble should be added the diet
recommended for an afflicted Saturn, and Venus planetary energy should be applied
to the zone occupied by Saturn.
Example: Chart 282. Male, April 28, 1892, 10:00 p.m. LMT. 74:15W. 40:45N.
Venus square Saturn, Sun sesqui-square Saturn, Saturn trine Mars in an angle, Mars
square Mercury. March 5, 1931, as progressed, with Venus sextile Saturn r, Sun
sesqui-square Uranus p, and Mars parallel Neptune p, underwent operation for gall
stones.
GANGRENE
Birth-chart constants: Negative planets prominent and Mars or Venus, usually
both, afflicted.
background image
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars at the same time there is an
affliction involving Pluto, Neptune or Saturn.
Stellar Treatment: Everything should be done to build up the vitality. The negative
planet afflicted by progressed aspect should be given the planetary energy of its
antidote, and it should be given Sun planetary energy. Solar electromagnetic energy
should be applied to the region affected by gangrene. The zones occupied by Venus
and Mars should be given the planetary energy of their antidote. The diet and
treatment should have for their object the revitalization of the whole system, and the
re-establishment of the normal activities of the gonad and adrenal glands.
Example: Chart 1822. Female, May 17, 1869, 10:00 a.m. 0W. 51:32N. Saturn
opposition Mercury, Neptune sextile Mercury, Pluto semi-sextile Mercury. On June
5, 1914, as progressed, with Mars inconjunct Neptune p, Saturn sesqui-square M.C.
r, Uranus (appendicitis) sextile Pluto r, Jupiter square Asc. r, and Mercury
semi-square Asc. r, died of gangrene of the appendix.
GASTRITIS
Birth-chart constants: Moon heavily afflicted, especially by Mars, or a planet in
Cancer heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect to Mars at the same time there are heavy rallying
force afflictions.
Stellar Treatment: Acute inflammation of the stomach may be caused by alcohol
taken on an empty stomach, by boiling liquids taken into the stomach, or by other
gross abuse of the stomach. It is a very serious illness. The stomach must be given
absolute rest, and water must be supplied to the digestive tract, and other means
should be taken to keep the temperature down in the region of the stomach. Lunar
electromagnetic energies should be applied abundantly to the inflamed region. The
imbalance where the cortin and adrenalin supply are concerned, resulting from the
Mars influence, does not offer the normal check to inflammation. The zone occupied
by Mars should receive harmonious Moon planetary energy, and thoughts should be
cultivated that will bring harmony between the Mars and Moon thought-cells. Its
planetary antidote should be applied to any afflicted planet in Cancer.
Example: Chart 283. Male, October 11, 1878, 3:13 a.m. 1:55W. 53:15N. Moon
opposition Mars, Mercury and Sun. In February, 1927, as progressed, with M.C. in
Cancer opposition Jupiter r, and Mars sesqui-square Saturn r, had an attack of
gastritis.
GASTRIC ULCER
Birth-chart constants: One or more upper-octave planet prominent, Jupiter
afflicted, and either an afflicted planet in Cancer or a heavily afflicted Moon.
background image
Progressed constants: An aspect involving an upper-octave planet, an aspect
involving a planet in Cancer or Jupiter, and an aspect involving Mars.
Stellar Treatment: Mental stress should be avoided, as it releases adrenaline and
withdraws the blood from the stomach. The stomach becomes unduly sensitive due
to the influence of the upper-octave planet on the parathyroid glands and the
affliction in Cancer or to the Moon. The Jupiter influence indicates inability to
handle sugars and starches properly. A catarrhal condition of the stomach results
under the Mars influence which may become an ulcer. Thus in addition to calm and
harmonius thinking there should be rest for the stomach; and the ketosis
(incompletely burned fatty acids in the blood) must be taken care of through a diet
low in fats, sugar, and other foods difficult to handle, and through strengthening the
insulin supply by treating the zone occupied by Jupiter with harmonious Mercury
planetary energy. The zone occupied by Mars, and the zone occupied by the Moon or
the planet in Cancer, should be given the planetary energy antidote, and the stomach
should be strengthened and soothed through applying lunar electromagnetic energy.
Example: Chart 631. Male, February 11, 1882, 4:00 a.m. 88:45W. 35:30N. Moon
opposition Jupiter and Pluto, square Venus and the Sun; Mercury opposition Uranus.
In July, 1926, as progressed, with Asc. square Moon r, Venus inconjunct Uranus p,
Mercury trine Mars p in Cancer, and Mars semi-square Jupiter p, developed gastric
ulcer.
GOITER
Birth-chart constants: Affliction in Taurus, or Venus and the Sun afflicted.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving the planet in Taurus, Venus, or the
Sun.
Stellar Treatment: There must be sufficient iodine in the food, as well as the other
things advocated when Sun and Venus are afflicted. Goiter is a disease of the thyroid
gland, the gland of energy production. It may be produced by lack of iodine in the
food, too great a proportion of protein or fat in the food, or by emotional strain. The
first thing, therefore, is to provide a proper diet. Then there should be systematic
education in the thinking to prevent emotional reactions of a disagreeable kind, and
to prevent excitement. Normal love expression and harmonious thoughts associated
with the desire for self esteem and power are beneficial. The zone occupied by the
Sun should be given Jupiter planetary energy, the zone occupied by Venus should
receive some Saturn planetary energy, but more Sun planetary energy. The throat
should be given the planetary energy which is the antidote of any afflicted planet in
Taurus, and should be treated with electromagnetic energy.
Example: Chart 284. Female, May 5, 1877, 8:00 a.m. 92:30W. 43N. Sun and Venus
in Taurus, conjunction Pluto, square Moon and Mars. In September, 1914, as
progressed, with Venus semi-square Sun r, and opposition Jupiter p, and Mars
background image
(operation) semi-square M.C. p, goiter became so serious that it was surgically
removed.
GONORRHEA
Birth-chart constants: Venus and Mars afflicted, or one of them severely afflicted
and the other prominent.
Progressed constants: A discordant aspect involving Venus or Mars.
Stellar Treatment: A discordant Mars aspect reduces the cortin and adrenaline
supply which resist infection. A discordant Venus encourages gonad imbalance on
which the system must largely depend for vigor. Hospitals use penicillin with
excellent results. Diet is very important. Rich foods should be avoided, and fruit
juices used abundantly to restore alkaline reaction to the blood stream. The diet
should be that recommended for an afflicted Venus and an afflicted Mars. The zone
occupied by Venus should be given the planetary energy of Saturn and the planetary
energy of the Sun. Moon planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by
Mars, and lunar electromagnetic energy should be applied to the infected area.
Example: Chart 285. Male, September 26, 1882, 6:30 a.m. 84W. 42N. Mars
conjunction Mercury in the first; Venus opposition Neptune and Saturn. In
September, 1924, as progressed, with Mercury conjunction Mars r, and Venus
square Uranus r, he contracted gonorrhea.
HAY FEVER
Birth-chart constants: Mercury afflicted by an upper-octave planet, or
upper-octave planets prominent and Mercury severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mercury, especially an affliction.
Stellar Treatment: The affliction of Mercury and the prominent upper-octave
planets upset the chemical balance through reducing the ability of the parathyroid
glands to handle calcium. Mercury rules the mucous membranes, and they become
unduly sensitive to certain weed and flower pollen, to certain foods, or to
atmospheric conditions. The treatment, therefore, should have as its aim the
restoration of the mineral balance of the body through the diet recommended for
Mercury and the prominent upper-octave planet. The nervous strain of the individual
should be reduced through the application of lunar electromagnetic energy and
thought-corrective education, the zone occupied by Mercury should be given Jupiter
planetary energy, and the zone occupied by any prominent upper-octave planet
should be given the energy of its planetary antidote.
Example: Chart 7267. Male, July 4, 1872, 9:00 a.m. 72:45W. 42:15N. Mercury
conjunction Uranus, sextile Pluto and square Neptune. In August, 1923, as
progressed, he suffered from hay fever, a complaint which he had recurrently.
