Medical Astrology correlations

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jul 21, 2019 9:12 pm

I'm slowly working on a new document that addresses possible medical correlations in astrology. It is important that you understand that (1) I am not a physician, (2) the method of applying this information to astrology remains in a discovery stage, and (3) not all of these items have been adequately tested. (The underlying principles and primitive components are fairly certain and some of the other items have been specifically confirmed., but it is better all around to consider these "reasonable recommendations" than proven formulae.) Some statements refer to pathololgy, some merely name functions or systems that are connected to the aspect.

I will add more as I complete them. For now, I have finished Moon aspects.


MOON. The substance of life. All bodily fluids. Hindbrain functions. Subconscious mind’s role in managing the body. Female reproductive system.

SUN. Vitality, the essence of life. The heart.

MERCURY. Nervous system, including brain (especially forebrain) and spinal tissues. (Nervous sensitivity.) The senses as part of the nervous system and channels of data and communication.

VENUS. Hormonal system in general. Biological femininity. (Possibly the limbic system. Possibly kidneys.)

MARS. Muscle system. Anything that surges adrenaline. Biological masculinity. (Inflammation.)

JUPITER. Alimentary system (including the liver). Building up, assimilation, digestion. Relaxation of musculature. (Effective medical treatment.)

SATURN. Skeletal system, bones. Elimination. Aging.

URANUS. The body’s electrical systems. The orienting response. Possibly also the autonomic (especially sympathetic) nervous system.

NEPTUNE. Weakness, wasting, atrophy.

PLUTO. Impact on physiology is most rooted in profound psychological impact. Additionally, as Pluto is symbolically related to conception, it may be connected to cellular growth and regeneration in general, and thus with healing.


Moon-Sun. Sexual reproduction (ovum and sperm). Heart, especially in relation to fluids (? congestive heart disease). The eyes. Interaction of conscious and subconscious mind.

Moon-Mercury. Nervous sensitivity or disorder, neuroses, allergies. Brain fluid. Brain activity and its rhythms. Female puberty.

Moon-Venus. Hormones in general. Female reproduction, biological femininity. Menstruation and all other fluids related to female reproduction. Interaction of hindbrain and limbic system.

Moon-Mars. Bleeding, fever, inflammation, infection, dehydration. Tumescence and other tissue engorgement. Autonomic sexual responses. (? Autoimmune diseases.) – Ebertin attributes Grave’s Disease.

Moon-Jupiter. Nutrition, digestion, assimilation of nutrients. All digestive fluids. Healthy female reproductive system. The role of subconsciousness in healing.

Moon-Saturn. Depressed physical and emotional responses. Problems with childbearing. Bowel, bladder, and other elimination disorders, sluggishness. Calcium metabolism problems. Generally adverse for health. (Hereditary disease.)

Moon-Uranus. Irregular menstruation. Autonomic (especially sympathetic) nervous system. Electrical interruptions. Nervous strain, disorientation (psychosis).

Moon-Neptune. Fluid disturbances in the body. Blood impurities. Edema. Toxic subconscious patterns disturb consciousness, may risk anxiety, depression, and confusion.

Moon-Pluto. Irregular menstruation; conception; lost pregnancy. Highly anomalous and unlikely medical conditions. Profound psychological impact of events (e.g., PTSD), eruptions or disorders of the psyche, cathartic events (debilitative or healing).

Is the skin just included with whatever part of the body is connected in the schema?

I've never seen a good answer for that in the literature

Some Tropical lists give Capricorn for the skin, I suppose as the protective layer. (Which, by the flip to Libra rising, might mean Cancer, which is really interesting since our skin is a different approach to the same function as arthropod shells.) We see skin affected secondarily by, say, general inflammation or allergies. It would be useful to have, say, 20 charts of people with long-term serious eczema to see what we could find. There is also a moisture function of the skin that might (might!) have to do with Moon. There is a big cosmetic feature that probably pertains to Venus, but maybe not in a biological way.

So... I don't have a good answer for that yet. Something to research.

How about Diabetes and Venus? I am not sure but I think you mentioned this before.

I've only done Moon aspects so far.

However, note that Type 1 and Type 2 are probably different patterns. Type 1 is a pancreas disorder that interferes with the creation of insulin. Type 2 is an autoimmune disease that impedes the body's ability to make use of insulin. These may well have quite different signatures., (The Type 1 person that I know best did indeed have an afflicted Venus.)

My daughter's mom is a Cancer, and skin was always a major theme for her. Career in cosmetology, rosacia, skin sensitivity, etc.

I have read that the Skin is a function of the whole digestive system, starting with the lips....the throat...to the gut, and out the other end.....if I recall correctly the cellular composition or tissue make up was similar.

No, the skin is its own functioning system, and it acts very much as a barrier or immunity, so I would say Saturn or Mars or possibly Saturn & Mars. It's very diverse, as it has nervous, elimination, and reproductive functions. So it would probably be multi-planetary.

Hmm, sounds more soothing, but Cancer/the moon could be representative of the skin since it's so flexible in both its elasticity and functions...it's also the first thing the world sees, so it's strongly tied to the social mask.

My favorite singer of all time when I was a child was Mariah Carey. I always thought something was wrong with her in her early career because she seemed too polished. When her album and film Glitter were released, I immediately recognized her symptoms, which I had seen in my cousin, who also has bipolar disorder. When people with bipolar disorder are in a hypomanic state, they appear to be on a lot of stimulants. It's obvious that having moon conjoined to neptune/ moon sextile Pluto is characteristic of this disease. Is the Moon positioned in Scorpio characteristic of bipolar disorder? I've met quite a few people with this placement that also have bipolar disorder.

Mariah's birth year isn't even known with confidence. Various sources give either 1969 or 1970, each roughly equally persuasive. One biographical source gives a time, though no source of the time is given and, with the year ambiguity, remains suspect.

If she was born in 1969, she is a Pisces-Gemini. If the 7:27 AM time is trusted (even though given for a different year), it gives a close Mercury-Pluto opposition in the immediate background and a partile Venus-Saturn conjunction square MC (and square Moon near the angles). However, if she was born in 1970, she's a Pisces-Scorpio and, if the time is trusted, then has Mars and Saturn rising (both very close) and a background Sun-Uranus opposition. The Mars-Saturn is 7° apart in longitude but partile conjunction mundanely.

Of the two, the first one feels much more "right on." For 1970 the one thing that would make me think otherwise is the closely rising Mars-Saturn conjunction for a woman who struggled hard to make it where she did. However, the 1969 chart seems to show the temperament better, including the implication of mother issues in her emotional problems. More importantly, though, we don't really know which is correct or whether the time given is correct for any year at all.

Is it a Venus-Neptune aspect they’ve got? My gf has type 1 and has this configuration, after looking at famous examples with type 1 they all seem to have it too (or some involvement by Neptune)

We need a large study, and there needs to be careful medical distinction on type of sub-type. This is far too large a segment of the population. The example of Type 1 that always first comes to mind for me was a Venus-Saturn opposition, though I'm not sure that's valid either - just one clear example of "afflicted Venus".

Who were the famous Type 1 people you checked?

And remember, it's not just a matter of having the aspect. Health matters are occasionally from acutely angular factors, but nearly always from acutely background factors plus life conditions that support the suppressing of the character side of the aspect.
