Chapter 11
Nervous Breakdown -- Scarlet Fever
NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
Birth-chart constants: Mercury afflicted and an upper octave planet prominent and
afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mercury and an aspect involving an
upper-octave planet at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The neurosis leading to a nervous breakdown may be promoted
by fatigue, undernutrition or a toxic condition, in which case these conditions should
be remedied. Or it may be entirely due to psychoneurosis, in which the mental
condition alone is responsible. But in either case, to assist nervous stability, the diet
should contain abundant vitamin B-1, vitamin D and calcium. And in either case the
chief effort should be to reconcile the individual to events and environment, and to
bring about a harmonious readjustment of his mental factors. Becoming familiar
with Course 3, Spiritual Alchemy, is helpful to some. The patient should be instructed
as to the thoughts he should cultivate to displace those responsible for the difficulty,
and magnetic passes should be employed to replenish his electromagnetic forces.
The treatment at the fifth station (Chapter 5) is especially important. Jupiter
planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Mercury, and the energy
of their planetary antidotes should be applied to the zones mapped by the planets
involved in the heavy discordant aspect.
Example: Chart 7274. Female, April 5, 1912, 5:45 p.m. 78:50W. 40:14N. Mercury
sextile Pluto and square Neptune and Uranus in angles. June 11, 1938, as progressed,
with Asc. trine Pluto r, Neptune trine Venus r, Jupiter sesqui-square Mercury r, and
Mars square Sun r, had nervous breakdown.
NERVOUSNESS
Birth-chart constants: Mercury or Uranus severely afflicted, especially by an
upper-octave planet.
background image
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mercury or an upper-octave planet,
especially an aspect involving Mercury and an upper-octave planet.
Stellar Treatment: Two things are needed; stabilizing the nerves and harmonizing
the mental factors. Mercury and the upper-octave planets deplete the supply of
parathyrin and make the nerves unduly sensitive. To strengthen the parathyroid
glands the diet should contain calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D. The zone
occupied by the responsible upper octave planet should receive proper planetary
energy antidote, and the patient should be educated relative to proper thinking.
Charging the patient with both solar electromagnetic energy and lunar
electromagnetic energy gives the nerves needed energy and permits them to relax.
The thought treatment should have for its object the establishment of a more peaceful
and harmonious state of mind and nerves. Properly applied suggestion is a great aid
in all nervous troubles.
Example: Chart 2056. Female, May 8, 1858, 8:00 a.m. 120:45W. 39:30N. Mercury
conjunction Uranus and both opposition Mars. During February, 1920, as
progressed, with Mercury conjunction Sun p and semi-square Uranus p, and Sun
semi-square Uranus p, was in a severely nervous state.
NEURALGIA
Birth-chart constants: Mercury or Uranus severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving Mercury or Uranus, or an aspect
involving Mercury or Uranus at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Mental activities and especially mental strains and discords
affect the parathyroid glands, diminishing their secretion and permitting chemical
imbalance, chiefly due to improper assimilation of calcium. They also exhaust the
nerve currents which, trying to meet the demands, become congested in certain areas
to the depletion of other areas. As the areas of congestion and depletion shift, the
neuralgia may also shift from one part of the body to another. The diet should contain
ample calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D, the vitality should be built up so that
there will be more electromagnetic energy for the nerves, and strains should be
lessened on the nervous system. As there is frequently over mental activity, interests
which require physical activity and little thought, especially of a recreational nature,
are valuable. The zone occupied by the afflicted Mercury or Uranus should be given
Jupiter planetary energy. The chief thing needed is to reeducate the individual to a
more poised and less discordant method of thinking.
Example: Chart 2055. Female, December 9, 1896, 9:10 p.m. 80:45W. 40N. Mercury
opposition Mars and Neptune, Uranus square Moon. November 24, 1933, as
progressed, with Mercury semi-square Mercury r, Sun sextile Uranus r, and Mars
conjunction M.C. p and Pluto p, suffered severe attack of facial neuralgia.

NEURASTHENIA
Birth-chart constants: Mercury or Uranus severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect involving Mercury or Uranus at the
same time there are severe rallying forces, especially involving Saturn, Neptune or
Pluto.
Stellar Treatment: The significant factor in neurasthenia is the poverty of mental
and physical vigor and the incapacity for effort. Overwork or sexual excess may be
contributing factors, or there may be little reserve of nervous energy. But the chief
difficulty is mental. The general health should be built up, and the treatment should
be that given for nervous breakdown. There is a mental factor which is in conflict
with other mental factors and which discourages and opposes effort. This factor must
be discovered and reconciled with the other mental factors, and the electromagnetic
energy of the individual increased.
Example: Chart 777. Male, October 31, 1858, 1:00 a.m. 8E. 51:30N. Mercury
opposition Pluto, Uranus square Asc. and Moon. In March, 1925, as progressed, with
Sun sesqui-square Uranus p, Mercury inconjunct Uranus r, and Asc. sesqui-square
Mars p, developed neurasthenia following a severe financial loss.
NEURITIS
Birth-chart constants: Uranus or Mercury afflicted by Mars.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars at the same time there is an aspect,
usually an affliction, involving Mercury or Uranus.
Stellar Treatment: In neuritis the Mars thought-cells exhaust the adrenalin and
cortin supply and the nerves become not merely sensitive due to parathyrin
depletion, but actually inflamed. Calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D should be
included abundantly in the diet, and Jupiter planetary energy should be applied to the
zone occupied by afflicted Mercury or Uranus. Often there is a toxic condition of the
blood stream, therefore the diet should be such as to alkalize it. Moon planetary
energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Mars, and the region of pain should
be treated with lunar electromagnetic energy. A cultivation of domestic thoughts in
harmonious association with any aggressive thoughts is advantageous, and the
thought treatment of the solar plexus should have for its end the quieting of
overstimulation of mind and nerves through the application of soothing mental
suggestion.
Example: Chart 297. Male, February 19, 1861, 4:00 a.m. 91:15W. 32:48N. Mars
semi-square Mercury and Moon. On May 9, 1928, as progressed, with Mars square
Mercury r and conjunction Moon r, developed neuritis.
background image
NEURODERMATITIS
Birth-chart constants: An upper-octave planet prominent and afflicted and
Mercury afflicted by an upper-octave planet.
Progressed constants: Mercury involved in an aspect with an upper-octave planet,
an aspect involving Mars, and an affliction involving Venus.
Stellar Treatment: The diet should contain ample calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin
D to give the parathyroid glands power to restore the chemical balance which is back
of the hypersensitivity of the nerves. And as it is the progressed Venus affliction
which causes the hypersensitivity to affect the skin, it should also contain vitamin A,
vitamin E, iodine and copper. The thinking should be poised, calm and harmonious.
Jupiter planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Mercury, Saturn
planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Venus, and the planetary
energy of its antidote should be applied to the zone occupied by the upper-octave
planet. Moon planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Mars, and
lunar electromagnetic energy should be used to soothe the irritation of the skin.
Example: Chart 7262A. Male, March 5, 1911, 4:00 a.m. 87:37W. 41:50N. Mars
conjunction Uranus and opposition Neptune, Mercury sesqui-square Neptune.
December 25, 1939, as progressed, with Mercury sextile Pluto r, Venus opposition
Jupiter p, and Mars sextile M.C. p, developed neurodermatitis.
OBESITY
Birth-chart constants: Jupiter or the Moon, often both, prominent and afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Jupiter or to the Moon.
Stellar Treatment: When the insulin supply, which is ruled by Jupiter, is abundant,
such fats as find their way into the blood stream are quickly stored. Unless thyroxin
and adrenalin are as abundant in proportion, this stored fat is not called upon as fuel,
but continues to be stored. The thymus gland, under direct influence of the Moon,
takes an important part in nutrition. The lymph cells in particular, take part in the
absorption of fats by the intestines, and these lymph cells are ruled by the Moon. Diet,
of course, is important in the reduction of fat. The zone mapped by Jupiter should be
given Mercury planetary energy. And in addition the zone mapped by the Sun should
be stimulated with Sun planetary energy to increase the activity of the thyroid gland,
as thyroxin enables the body to burn its excess fuel. When exercise is taken to
consume excess fat, it should be remembered that the diet should contain some starch
or sugar, as fat can only burn in the presence of sugar. Absolute elimination of starch
and sugar from the diet, while engaging in strenuous exercise, causes the fat to
smolder and fill the blood with fatty acids.
background image
Example: Chart 6233. Female, January 23, 1917, 9:30 p.m. 90:04W. 29:57N.
Jupiter square Mercury and Sun, Moon conjunction Mars and Uranus. She has been
excessively fat since soon after birth.
OBSESSION
Birth-chart constants: Neptune, Pluto or the Moon prominent and severely
afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect to Pluto at the same time there are severe rallying
forces, especially if they involve Neptune or the Moon.
Stellar Treatment: The patient must be aided to avoid thinking about the obsessing
thought or entity. The planetary energy which is the antidote of the responsible
thought-cells should be given the zone mapped by their planet. Solar
electromagnetic energy may be used to build up a more positive attitude. One of the
best things is for the patient to engage in some work, which in no way is associated
with the obsession, that so completely absorbs the time, attention and energies that
there is no opportunity to think about the obsession. The thought treatment is
important in that the effort should be made to break the vibratory connection between
the patient and the obsession. Judicially applied suggestion may be made of
assistance in this. If conversation can be established with an obsessing entity, it may
be reasoned with and persuaded, or forced, to leave.
Example: Chart 1555. Female, April 20, 1868 noon. 158W. 12:18N. Moon,
Mercury, Mars and Neptune conjunction, Pluto angular and semi-square Jupiter. In
March, 1883, as progressed, with M.C. and Sun conjunction Pluto p, Asc. square
Pluto p, and Venus semi-square Pluto p, became seriously obsessed.
OPERATION
Birth-chart constants: A prominent Mars, especially if afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, an aspect involving the ruler of
the first house, an aspect involving the ruler of the sixth house, and an aspect
involving the ruler of the twelfth house.
Stellar Treatment: This subject is treated in detail, in connection with the analysis
of the charts of 100 people at the time they had an operation, in the reference book,
BODY DISEASE AND ITS STELLAR TREATMENT.
1
At the time of operation,
and immediately afterward, electromagnetic energy should be applied to the region
operated on to hasten the healing process. In choosing the time for the operation,
aside from the progressed aspects, which usually cannot be controlled, the Moon as
shown in the ephemeris on that day should not be within two signs of the part of the
1

background image
body operated on. The best time is when the Moon is two or three signs past the
region of the body operated on, so it will have to travel nine or ten signs to get back to
that region.
Example: Chart 6116. Male, July 4, 1911, 3:00 a.m. 88W. 43N. Mars opposition
Moon. In September, 1934, as progressed, with Mars, ruler of sixth, semi-square
Asc. r, Venus trine Saturn r, ruler of twelfth, and Pluto inconjunct Uranus r
(appendix), had appendix removed.
OSTEOMYELITIS
Birth-chart constants: Mars prominent and Saturn heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars and an aspect involving Saturn, at
the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Unless immediate surgical treatment is given the person,
usually a child, may die in a day or two from blood poisoning. The surgeon bores into
the bone and gives free exit to the poisonous discharges. Venus planetary energy
should be given to the zone occupied by Saturn, and Moon planetary energy should
be given to the zone occupied by Mars. The diet should be such as to alkalize the
blood stream, and contain plenty of variety in mineral salts, vitamins and proteins.
Magnetic passes may be used to increase the vitality.
Example: Chart 7275. Male, April 26, 1921, 00:15 p.m. 93-16W. 44:59N. Mars in
an angle, Saturn opposition Uranus, square Moon, sesqui-square Sun. January 27,
1933, as progressed, with Sun trine Saturn p, Pluto parallel Mars p, and Venus
semi-square Uranus p, was operated on for osteomyelitis. Lost one bone in leg below
knee.
OVARY TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Venus afflicted.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving Venus, or an aspect involving Venus
at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Vitamin E and vitamin A are absolutely essential if the ovaries
are to perform their functions normally. And as there is a close association between
the ovaries and the thyroid gland, the diet should contain ample iodine. Wheat germ
meal is an excellent source of vitamin E. Ovary trouble is almost always associated
with emotional disturbances. The individual should be instructed in thinking to
correct these, and the thought treatment should assist in this. The zone occupied by
Venus should be given Saturn planetary energy, and if under-vitalized should be
given Sun planetary energy. According to whether they are over-stimulated or
under-vitalized the region of the ovaries should be charged with lunar
electromagnetic energy or with solar electromagnetic energy. The region of the
thyroid gland should also be treated with electromagnetic energy.
background image
Example: Chart 517. Female, March 10, 1895, 10:00 p.m. 90W. 42N. Venus
semi-square Mercury. In May, 1925, as progressed, with Asc. sesqui-square Venus r,
Mars sesqui-square Asc. r in Scorpio, and Saturn sesqui-square Sun r, her ovaries
were surgically removed.
PARALYSIS
Birth-chart constants: Uranus prominent, and usually afflicted.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving Uranus, or an aspect involving
Uranus at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The thought-cells mapped by Uranus are involved in all kinds of
paralysis, such as spastic, infantile, palsy, or due to cerebral hemorrhage. Other than
Uranus the constants and the treatment depend upon whether it is merely functional
or whether some section of the nervous system is affected, what section is affected,
and whether it is affected by a pressure, by inflammation, by syphilitic infection, by a
tumor, or by an injury. There is even a type of paralysis which arises from disease of
the muscles. Magnetic passes, suggestion, thought-education and thought-treatment
are commonly advantageous. The zone occupied by Uranus should be given Jupiter
planetary energy, and the zones occupied by the planets mapping the other
responsible thought-cells should be given the planetary energy of their antidotes.
Example: Chart 19. Male, December 28, 1856, 11:30 p.m. 79W. 38N. Uranus
square Mars and Venus. September 26, 1919, as progressed, with Mars semi-square
Uranus r, Saturn opposition Sun r. Asc. semi-square Sun r, and Mercury
sesqui-square Asc. r, became partially paralyzed.
PELLAGRA
Birth-chart constants: Afflictions from Saturn.
Progressed constants: An affliction involving Saturn, Neptune or Pluto, usually
involving Saturn.
Stellar Treatments: This is a typical Saturn disease caused by diet deficiency. To
overcome it, there must be thiamin (vitamin B-1) and niacin (vitamin P-P)
abundantly in the diet. Both of these are contained in vitamin B complex. The food
should have a high-caloric and a high-protein value, and contain variety in mineral
salts, vitamins and proteins, as indicated by the Saturn affliction. The zone occupied
by Saturn should receive Venus planetary energy, the discordant rallying forces
should receive the planetary energy of their antidote, and solar electromagnetic
energy may be applied to build up vitality. The prime necessity, however, is a proper
diet.
Example: Chart 300. Female, May 19, 1883, 8:40 a.m. 83:53W. 43:37N. Saturn
conjunction Sun. In June, 1932, as progressed, with Sun semi-square Saturn r and
Pluto r, and Mars conjunction Sun r, suffered from pellagra.
background image
PERITONITIS
Birth-chart constants: An afflicted planet in Virgo, or Mercury severely afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction, involving Mars, at the same
time there is an aspect involving the planet in Virgo or Mercury.
Stellar Treatment: The individual should he educated to a less irritating kind of
thinking, and the diet should contain calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D. Under the
Mars influence the adrenalin and cortin supply are exhausted. Therefore the diet
should also tend to alkalize the blood stream to avoid possible infection of the
peritonium. The zone occupied by the planet in Virgo, or by the afflicted Mercury,
should be given the planetary energy of its antidote. The zone occupied by Mars
should be given Moon planetary energy, and the locality of the difficulty should be
treated with lunar electromagnetic energy. If the inflammation is acute, or there is
infection, a competent doctor should administer penicillin.
Example: Chart 299. Male, September 18, 1899, 6:00 p.m. 75W. 40:45N. Sun,
Mercury and Venus in Virgo square Saturn and opposition Asc. February 26, 1917,
as progressed, with Mars sesqui-square Asc. r, and semi-square Sun r in Virgo, died
of peritonitis.
PHLEBITIS
Birth-chart constants: Venus prominent and afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Venus and an aspect involving Mars at
the same time there are serious rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The inflammation of the vein may be simple or septic. It is
marked by pain and tenderness in the line of the affected vein, which becomes firm
and cord-like. It is more likely to occur in veins that have been varicose for some
time. The chief danger is that it may be followed by thrombosis. Treatment with lunar
electromagnetic energy may be used to relieve the pain. The diet should contain
vitamin A, vitamin E, iodine, copper, vitamin B-1, vitamin C, iron, be low in protein
content, but have variety of proteins. The zone occupied by Venus should be given
Saturn planetary energy, and the zone occupied by Mars should be given Moon
planetary energy. The individual should rest, and should reeducate his thoughts to
avoid emotional disturbance.
Example: Chart 7276. Female, October 3, 1884, 2:00 a.m. 2:27W. 54:59N. Venus
conjunction Asc., square Neptune and semi-square Sun. September 11, 1907, as
progressed, with Sun parallel Venus r, Saturn sextile Venus r, Mars sextile Uranus p,
and Asc. semi-square Mercury r, developed phlebitis in one of her legs.
background image
PLEURISY
Birth-chart constants: Mars afflicted and an affliction in Gemini or Mercury
heavily afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mercury or the planet in Gemini, and an
aspect involving Mars, at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: This disease occurs in two forms; the acute type and the chronic
type. The acute type is called dry pleurisy because there is no exudation. In the
chronic form there is an accumulation of a large amount of fluid in the chest upon the
affected side, which may be simply serum or contain pus. Prominent negative
planets, especially the Moon, seem to favor the accumulation of such fluid. Diet,
thought-treatment and the educational factor should have for end the restoration of
the normal activity of the parathyroid glands and the strengthening of the adrenal
glands. Sufficient parathyrin tends to remedy the hypersensitivity of the membrane
which lines the chest walls and covers the lungs, and sufficient adrenalin and cortin
tends to neutralize the toxins in the blood which inflame this membrane and thus give
rise to pleurisy. The zone occupied by Mercury or the planet in Gemini should be
given the proper planetary energy antidote. Lunar electromagnetic energy may be
used to reduce the pain.
Example: Chart 301. Male, January 14, 1878 8:34 a.m. 79:45W. 42:08N. Sun and
Mercury square Mars, Venus semi-square Mars. March 20, 1924, as progressed,
with Mercury semi-sextile Sun r, Sun parallel Mars r, and Venus opposition Uranus
p, developed pleurisy which was serious for six weeks.
PITUITARY DEFICIENCY
(POSTERIOR)
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and heavily afflicted Moon.
Progressed constants: An affliction to the birthchart Moon.
Stellar Treatment: The back pituitary gland produces a secretion which causes
contraction of all the arteries except those of the kidneys, and of the plain muscles of
the bowels, the bladder, the womb, and other organs. It has something to do with the
metabolism of the carbohydrates. Its deficiency leads to obesity. Its deficiency is
treated by the medical profession with injections of pituitrin and other hormones.
The diet should contain ample vitamin B-2, and the water-salt balance should be
regulated. Pituitrin secretion should be strengthened by electromagnetic energy
directed to the gland.
Example: Chart 7277. Female, June 13, 1902, 5:00 a.m. CST. 83:03W. 42:20N.
Moon in an angle, square Sun. In June ,1908, as progressed, with Sun square Moon r,
and Moon opposition Mars p, developed back pituitary deficiency following a fall.
background image
PNEUMONIA
Birth-chart constants: Sun afflicted by Saturn, Neptune, Pluto or the Moon.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, a discordant aspect involving
Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Venus or birth-chart Moon, and a progressed aspect
involving Mercury or a planet in Gemini.
Stellar Treatment: The analysis of 100 charts progressed to the time this disease
developed, and detailed information relative to its stellar treatment are given in the
reference book, BODY DISEASE AND ITS STELLAR TREATMENT.

Everything should be done to conserve and build up vital energy. The individual
should be clothed in woolen garments and put to bed between blankets. There should
be fresh air, but avoidance of draft, and the room kept at a temperature of 60° F. To
conserve vitality he should be kept absolutely quiet and not permitted to get out of
bed for any purpose. He should not be allowed to lie flat on his back, or in any
position that will impede circulation through the lungs. Cold compresses on the head,
and lunar electromagnetic energy, may be used to reduce the fever. An enema of
water which is quite warm may be used to cleanse the bowels. Food requirements are
indicated by the Sun and afflicted negative planets. The thyroid gland should be
given solar electromagnetic energy, and zones occupied by the afflicted planets
which are the constants of the disease should be given proper planetary antidotes.
Example: Chart 3197. May 9, 1860, 6:30 a.m. 3W. 56:40N. Sun conjunction Pluto
and semi-square Neptune. On June 19, 1937, as progressed, with Venus opposition
Mars p, Mercury sesqui-square Moon r, and M.C. semi-sextile Uranus r in Gemini,
died of pneumonia.
POISONING
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and afflicted Neptune.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Neptune at the same time there are
severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: The Neptune thought-cells are involved not only when the
poison taken internally is a corrosive, an irritant or a narcotic, but also when it is due
to insect bite, snake bite or contact with poison ivy. If the poison has been swallowed,
and is not a corrosive, first aid should be employed at once to empty the stomach. A
tablespoonful of mustard, or two tablespoonsful of common salt in a glass of warm
water should be given the patient. Then the back of the throat should be tickled to
2

hasten the vomiting. When the vomiting begins, the patient should drink a large
amount of tepid water to wash out the stomach. However, if the poison is a corrosive,
such as the caustic alkalies, carbolic acid or creosote, an emetic should not be given,
as the vomiting may cause perforation of the stomach. Instead, the irritation should
be eased by giving milk, thin gruel, olive oil, or white of egg in water. Oil, however,
should not be given in poisoning by cantharides or phosphorus, and water should be
withheld in poisoning by oxalic acid or lysol. After the emergency treatment, Sun
planetary energy should be applied to the zone occupied by Neptune, magnetic
passes should be used to give the patient recuperative power, and the diet should be
such as to give the blood stream an alkaline reaction to assist it neutralize the toxic
condition.
Example: Chart 7278. Female, August 21, 1888, 12:12 a.m. 4:30E. 52:20N.
Neptune in house of self-undoing (twelfth) conjunction Pluto and square Sun.
December 9, 1934, as progressed, with Neptune sesqui-square Uranus p, Sun
semi-square Sun r, and M.C. semi-square Pluto r, committed suicide by taking rat
poison.
PROSTATE TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: Mars or Pluto afflicted, or an afflicted planet in Scorpio.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, Pluto or the planet in Scorpio at
the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Treatment depends upon the nature of the affliction of the
prostate gland. When it is inflamed, heat, such as a hip bath, may bring relief. The diet
should contain vitamin A, vitamin B-1, vitamin C, iron, be low in protein but with
ample variety of proteins. Stimulating and irritating foods should be avoided, and
they should be such as to give an alkaline reaction to the blood stream to prevent
irritation of the prostate gland. Lunar electromagnetic energy should be applied to
the region of the prostate gland, the zone occupied by the afflicted Mars or Pluto
should be given Moon planetary energy, and if there is a planet in Scorpio (ruling the
prostate gland) the planetary energy of its antidote should be applied to this zone. In
some prostate trouble massaging the gland through the rectum gives good results.
Cancer of the prostate gland, when discovered early, is often successfully treated
with female sex hormones.
Example: Chart 7279. Male, May 24, 1862, 5:00 a.m. 84W. 41:54N. Sun square
Mars, Venus semi-square Mars. In March, 1909, as progressed, with Mars sextile
Sun r, Venus semi-sextile Pluto r, and Sun square Venus r, developed inflammation
of the prostate gland.
PSORIASIS
Birth-chart constants: An upper octave planet, especially Neptune, prominent and
afflicted and Venus afflicted.
background image
Progressed constants: An aspect involving an upper-octave planet and a discordant
aspect involving Venus.
Stellar Treatment: There is hypersensitivity due to improper functioning of the
parathyroid glands. This should be corrected by calm, poised and harmonious
thinking, and by a diet containing ample calcium, vitamin B-1, and vitamin D. The
hypersensitivity manifests through the skin due to the activity of discordant Venus
thought-cells. Effort should be made to ascertain if there is anything in the
environment to which the skin is sensitive. And the diet should contain vitamin A,
iodine, copper, and vitamin E. For vitamin E wheat germ meal is recommended. The
zone occupied by the upper-octave planet involved should be given the energy of its
planetary antidote. The zone occupied by Venus should be given Saturn planetary
energy. Suggestion and thought-treatment should also be used to overcome the skin
sensitivity.
Example: Chart 7280. Female, July 11, 1906, 7:00 p.m. 74W. 40:43N. Neptune
conjunction Sun and Mars, Uranus square Moon. In July, 1913, as progressed, with
Mercury sesqui-square Uranus r, Venus semi-square Sun r, Mars semi-sextile Venus
r, and Asc. opposition Mars r, developed psoriasis.
PYLORIC TROUBLE
Birth-chart constants: An afflicted planet in Virgo, or much less commonly a
severely afflicted Mercury.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving the planet in Virgo, or Mercury, at the
same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Both the thoughts and the diet should have for aim restoration of
chemical balance through normal parathyroid secretion, and the correction of
digestive disturbances. The diet should contain calcium, vitamin B-1, and vitamin D.
Worry and tension should be avoided. If Mercury is afflicted, the zone it occupies
should be given Jupiter planetary energy. Any afflicted thought-cells mapped by a
planet in Virgo should receive the planetary energy of their antidote.
Electromagnetic energy should be applied to the region where the stomach joins the
small intestines to give this region vigor and vitality. The mental attitude of the
patient is very important.
Example: Chart 302. Female, December 9, 1883, 9:00 p.m. LMT. 112:30W. 39N.
Mercury square Uranus in Virgo. February 6, 1905, as progressed, with Mars
conjunction Mars r, Venus opposition Jupiter r, Mercury trine Uranus r in Virgo, and
M.C. trine Uranus r in Virgo, inflammation of the pylorus had advanced so far that an
operation was performed changing the outlet of the stomach to the other side.
background image
RHEUMATISM
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Saturn afflicted, especially if they afflict each
other.
Progressed constants: An aspect, especially an affliction, involving either Saturn or
Mars.
Stellar Treatment: Whether of the acute type or the chronic type, whether affecting
the muscles or the joints, there is always a serious chemical imbalance present in
which the adrenalin and cortin supply are insufficient to neutralize the acidity of the
blood stream. Sometimes the difficulty is due to uric acid in the blood from the nuclei
of meat. Diet deficiencies of the Saturn type are commonly a contributing cause. The
diet should be that advocated for Saturn afflictions and Mars afflictions, excess of
meat and acid producing foods being avoided. Exposure to wet and cold lowers the
vitality, decreases the adrenalin and cortin supply, and enables the disease to
develop. It should be avoided. The zone occupied by Mars should be given Moon
planetary energy and the zone occupied by Saturn should be given Venus planetary
energy. Solar electromagnetic energy should be used to warm and stimulate, and
lunar electromagnetic energy may be used to reduce the inflammation.
Example: Chart 303. Female, May 22, 1903, 3:44 p.m. 94:30W. 35:25N. Saturn
semi-square Uranus; Mars opposition Moon, square Uranus and sesqui-square
Saturn. In October, 1921, as progressed, with Mars square Neptune p, and Saturn
semi-square Uranus p, developed rheumatism.
RHEUMATIC FEVER
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Saturn afflicted, especially if they afflict each
other.
Progressed constants: An aspect, especially an affliction, involving either Saturn or
Mars.
Stellar Treatment: In addition to the factors contributing to and present in
rheumatism, there is an infection which enters the body by way of the nose or throat.
In about half of those who suffer from this disease, even its lighter forms, there is
inflammation of the lining of the heart--in which case the Sun or a planet in Leo is
both a birth-chart and a progressed constant. In addition to the treatment indicated for
rheumatism, the individual should be kept in bed and not be permitted to get out of it
even though the disease appears slight. He should wear a flannel nightdress that
opens in such a manner as to be easily removed when he sweats freely. Fever and pain
may he reduced by lunar electromagnetic energy and cold compresses or ice-pack.
The medical profession uses salicylates. The joints should be covered with cotton
wool. Attention should be paid to the state of the throat when the individual begins to
background image
get well. The joints usually recover, but the after-effects on the heart are often
serious.

31:03N. Saturn square Jupiter and sesqui-square Sun and Venus. Mars conjunction
Moon and square Uranus. In June, 1902, as progressed, with Mars opposition Saturn
r, M.C. opposition Pluto r, Mercury opposition Pluto r, and Sun inconjunct Saturn r
and semi-sextile Mars p, suffered from rheumatic fever.
RHINITIS
Birth-chart constants: An upper-octave planet prominent and Jupiter and Mars
afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, an aspect involving Jupiter, and
an aspect involving an upper-octave planet.
Stellar Treatment: Chemical imbalance, due to lack of parathyrin, and an acid
blood stream lead to the inflammation of the nasal membrane. In its common form
there is acute catarrh. And in this form the Jupiter thought-cells play a part; for they
encourage diet habits which cause the blood stream to be over burdened with
incompletely burned fuel. The diet should be that advocated for an afflicted Jupiter,
and in addition contain ample calcium, vitamin B-1 and vitamin D. The liver should
be energized with solar electromagnetic energy, and the Jupiter zone should receive
Mercury planetary energy. Moon planetary energy should be given the zone
occupied by Mars, and the planetary energy of its antidote should be applied to the
zone occupied by the upper-octave planet. Tensions should be avoided, and the
thoughts made more calm and harmonious.
Example: Chart 7282. Male, June 12, 1903, 10:20 a.m. 78:59W. 39:26N. Pluto and
Uranus in angles, opposition each other; Jupiter square Sun, Pluto and Uranus; Mars
square Neptune. March 1, 1944, as progressed, with Mars inconjunct Jupiter r and
Uranus p, Neptune square Mars r, Saturn semi-square Uranus p, and Sun semi-square
Venus p, developed rhinitis.
RICKETS
Birth-chart constants: An upper octave planet prominent and Saturn afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving an upper-octave planet, and an aspect
involving Saturn, at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Rickets develop when there is insufficient calcium or
phosphorus in the diet, or when, due to lack of vitamin D, these elements cannot be
properly handled. Spinach eaten at the same meal with other calcium containing
foods decreases the amount of calcium assimilated from them, as do cereals unless
irradiated or eaten with lettuce, liver or eggs. The acid condition of the intestinal tract
produced by drinking citrus fruit juice markedly increases the ability to assimilate
background image
calcium from foods. Calcium is obtained three times as readily from milk quickly
boiled as from the slowly heated pasteurized milk, or as from dried milk. It is difficult
to assimilate calcium from sweetened condensed milk, but evaporated milk and raw
milk yield their calcium excellently. To handle the calcium and phosphorus, and
build bone with them, there must be ample vitamin D. In addition to calcium and
vitamin D, the food should contain plenty of variety of the mineral salts, vitamins and
proteins. The zone occupied by Saturn should be given solar planetary energy.
Example: Chart 304. Female, December 27, 1929, 11:16 p.m. CST. 84:30W. 39N.
Saturn conjunction Sun, and Uranus in an angle square Sun and Saturn. Starting in
October, 1930, as progressed, with Sun square Uranus r, and Saturn trine Neptune r,
suffered a year and a half from rickets.
RINGWORM
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Venus somewhat afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars and an aspect involving Venus.
Stellar Treatment: Ringworm is due to the presence of parasitic fungi. The fungi
are propagated by spores, and the variety of the infection depends upon the size of the
spores and, when it occurs in a hairy situation, whether they are on the surface of the
hair, within its substance, or both. The form that commonly occurs on children is
ringworm of the body, which may come from ringworm of the head or from close
contact with domestic animals suffering from ringworm. As the inner reddish patch
on the skin heals it spreads at the edges. Doctors often paint the infected area with
tincture of iodine for three or four days and then apply an antiseptic ointment.
Clothing which contacts the diseased area must be carefully disinfected. In
ringworm of the nail it is customary to remove the nail and kill the parasite by
painting with tincture of iodine. Tincture of iodine is also used on ringworm of the
scalp. Wherever it occurs, the parasite must be killed. Then healthy growth of skin
and hair may be promoted by applying Saturn planetary energy to the zone occupied
by Venus.
Example: Chart 7281. Female, January 10, 1943, 10:41 a.m. LMT. 118:15W. 34N.
Mars square Moon, Venus semi-square Mars and Moon. In March, 1945, as
progressed, with Venus semi-square Mars p, and Mars semi-sextile Sun r, had
ringworm.
SCABIES
Birth-chart constants: Mars and Venus somewhat afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars and an aspect involving Venus at
the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: Commonly known as itch, this contagious disease is due to a
mite which burrows beneath the skin. A hot bath should be taken, and the whole
background image
body, except the head, should be lathered with soft soap. A stiff nail brush should be
applied to the affected areas to open up the burrows. The body is then dried with a soft
towel and all below the neck anointed with sulphur ointment, or if the skin is
sensitive, with equal parts sulphur ointment and zinc ointment. Clean clothing
should then be donned. This treatment should be repeated four nights in succession,
and on the fifth a bath should be taken in ordinary soap and water, after which the
body should be rubbed over with ordinary zinc ointment. Personal clothing and bed
clothing should be thoroughly disinfected. After the mites have thus been killed and
removed, Saturn planetary energy may be applied to the zone occupied by Venus to
increase the vigor of the skin.
Example: Chart 7283. Male, June 24, 1917, 11:00 a.m. 97W. 36:45N. Mars square
Moon, Venus semi-square Moon. In January, 1938, as progressed, with Sun
semi-square Mars r, and Jupiter semi-square Venus r, had scabies.
SCARLET FEVER
Birth-chart constants: Mars, Venus and Mercury either prominent or somewhat
afflicted.
Progressed constants: An aspect involving Mars, an aspect involving Venus, and
an aspect involving Mercury at the same time there are severe rallying forces.
Stellar Treatment: This is a highly contagious disease, the infection usually
entering the body through the nose or mouth. The mouth, nose and throat should be
kept very clean through the use of an antiseptic mouth wash used several times daily.
Ice pack and lunar electromagnetic energy may be used to reduce the fever, which
may be high. As in other infectious fevers, the blood stream should be kept alkaline to
assist in neutralizing the toxins. Fruit and vegetables juices are recommended. Moon
planetary energy should be given the zone occupied by Mars, Saturn planetary
energy should be given the zone occupied by Venus, and Jupiter planetary energy
should be given the zone occupied by Mercury. Careful nursing is important.
Example: Chart 7284. Female, November 17, 1937, 5:00 a.m. 118:20W. 34:05N.
Mars square Venus and opposition Pluto, Mercury sextile Mars. In March, 1947, as
progressed, with Mars square Uranus r, Neptune semi-square Venus r, and Mercury
semi-square Mars r, had scarlet fever.
