Calculating the Relative Harmony Due to a Major-Progressed Aspect
Precautionary Actions and Self Treatment
Birth Chart Planets
Birth-Chart House Cusps
To make the instructions on stellar dynamics complete, in
Chapter 6 (Serial Lesson 202) 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 predispositions.
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
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
Calculating the Relative Harmony Due to a Major-Progressed Aspect
As explained in Chapter 5 (Serial Lesson
201) except when a
major-progressed planet makes an aspect to its birth-chart place every
major-progressed aspect has four terminals. Chapter 3 (Serial Lesson
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. In Serial Lesson 200 is explained that a
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,
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 this manner:
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 ½ 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 birth-chart 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 practical purposes.
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.
In Serial Lesson 199 is given the
harmony of each birth-chart terminal
in the John Edwards chart. And in Serial Lesson 200 is given the
normal harmony of each
major-progressed terminal in the chart during the years near and including
1941. And in Chapter 5 (Serial Lesson 201) 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 semisquare 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 discordynes.
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 discordynes.
Precautionary Actions and Self Treatment
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 5 (Serial Lesson 201) 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 III, Spiritual Alchemy, V,
Esoteric Psychology, IX, Mental Alchemy, and XIV, Occultism Applied 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 serial lessons no. 153, 222, 223, 224 and 225,
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 4 (Serial Lesson 200) 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
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
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.
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
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 sesquisquare Pluto p, Mars square Uranus
p and sesquisquare 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 HAPPEN.
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 Research
shows that one degree is always valid.
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 semisquare 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.
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 be applied.
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
sesquisquare Saturn p, had severe acidosis.
Birth-chart constants: Venus afflicted; usually heavily
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 gland adjustment.
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. 87:55W.
43:02N. Venus square Saturn, semisquare Mercury, semisquare Jupiter. Fall,
1902, as progressed, with Venus semisquare 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 square Uranus).
(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
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 affliction.
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 birth chart, 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 Neptune.
Progressed constants: A progressed aspect, usually an
affliction, involving Mars; and commonly also a progressed aspect involving
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
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
semisquare Sun r and sextile Sun p, Neptune semisquare Saturn r, Asc. semisextile
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
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 Serial Lesson 225 (Course XXI, Personal Alchemy), 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 semisextile
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
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
Birth-chart constants: Uranus and Mars both prominent, and usually
Progressed constants: Progressed aspect involving Uranus and
progressed aspect involving Mars at the same time there is a heavy progressed
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 to it.
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 sesquisquare
Saturn p, acted as rallying forces.
Birth-chart constants: Jupiter and the upper-octave planets
prominent, and usually afflicted.
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.
84W30. 39N. Jupiter square M.C., Moon and Mars; Pluto opposition Asc., Neptune
opposition Sun, Uranus sesquisquare Mercury.
March 8, 1930, as progressed, with Jupiter sesquisquare Sun
r, Sun inconjunct Pluto p, Mars inconjunct Pluto r, and Mars semisquare Mars r
and Moon r as rallying forces, died of hardening of the arteries.
Birth-chart constants: Saturn and Uranus prominent, usually
Progressed constants: An aspect, usually an affliction,
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. 90W20.
39N45. Saturn sesquisquare 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
Example: Chart 255. Male, Dec. 5, 1859, 8:00 a.m. 79W.
42N50. Mercury square Neptune, Pluto sesquisquare 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
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. 90W20,
Saturn elevated, sesquisquare 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 years.
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,
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. 122W10.
37N30. 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. 122W10.
37N20. 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
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
Example: Chart 257. Female, Feb. 16, 1893, 10:12 p.m. 77W40.
42N40. Uranus in Scorpio opposition Mars, Pluto square Moon. April 15, 1929, as
progressed, with Venus sesquisquare Uranus r in Scorpio, Pluto semi-square
Jupiter r, and Mars square Sun r, had an infected throat accompanied
Birth-chart constants: A prominent and afflicted Saturn and
a prominent and afflicted Neptune.
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 planetary energy.
Example: Chart 258. Male, Aug. 16, 1909, 5:30 p.m. 7E30.
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.
