An Introduction to Medical Astrology

Medical Astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with the workings of the human body. A competent medical astrologer can analyze a person’s birth chart and determine bodily strengths and weaknesses, proneness to various disease states, and nutritional deficiencies. In the event of illness or disease, a medical astrologer will use predictive methods to try to determine the severity and duration of the disease. Sometimes a medical astrologer can help determine the course of a disease by the use of a chart called a decumbiture chart.

This type of astrology has its basis in ancient astrology when the astrologer rarely knew the exact time of birth of a subject. Instead, a chart was set up for the time the patient “took to his bed” or for the time the physician analyzed the urine of the patient. Nowadays, the decumbiture chart can be set up for the time of a diagnosis by a doctor or for the time a person “takes to his bed.”

Medical astrology is also helpful in elective surgery. The medical astrologer can pick the best date(s) and time(s) for an elective procedure — anything from a face lift to a college injection. Although it is always best to have the time of birth of the person, if this is not possible, the medical astrologer can still help the client pick the most fortunate times for the procedure.

Needless to say, one should not try to use elective astrology in a medical emergency. Medical astrology should not be used to diagnose illness. The only person who can diagnose illness is a medical doctor. And even a medical doctor who is also versed in medical astrology would not try to diagnose illness from a birth chart.

You may be able to determine a tendency toward various types of illnesses, and you can usually see periods of stress or lowered vitality when one could have health problems; but it is not possible nor should one attempt to diagnose illness from the birth chart.

However, once a medical doctor has diagnoses a particular illness, the medical astrologer may be able to ascertain from the birth chart the severity or duration of the illness. It is always helpful to know exactly when an illness began or was diagnosed as then the medical astrologer can ascertain what planetary influences the client was under at that time. And as stated previously, if the moment of the diagnosis is recorded, a medical astrologer can set up a decumbiture chart for that time and gain more information about the course the illness.


The Signs of the Zodiac and Medical Astrology
A good way to begin your understanding of medical astrology is to gain an understanding of how the signs of the zodiac relate to the body.   Generally speaking, the signs of the zodiac rule  the anatomical locations in the body beginning with Aries for the head and ending with Pisces for the feet.

Aries: the first sign of the zodiac, can refer to heat and inflammation.  It can refer to feverish complaints.  As the first sign of the zodiac, it is the general ruler of the head and brain and all injuries or complaints of the head.  As one delves further into medical astrology, one will note that various parts of the head can refer to other signs — such as Capricorn for the teeth and Cancer for the sinus cavities.  But, in a general way, all complaints of the head area relate to Aries.
Taurus: is a sign which helps in the support and endurance of the body.  It generally refers to the throat, tonsils, and the thyroid gland. In relation to the face, it also rules the gums and the middle ear qui vend viagra.
Gemini: is a sign associated with communication and connectivity. It rules the tubes of the body and has general rulership over the nervous system and the lungs. Following Taurus, the neck, Gemini rules the arms and shoulders.
Cancer: is a water sign which can nurture and protect.  It rules all coverings and containers in the body such as the chest cavity, the stomach, the breasts, and the uterus.  It also rules the mucous membranes.
Leo: another fire sign, is a sign of energy and vitality. It rules the muscular portion of the heart, the spine and middle back.
Virgo: rules the processes of assimilation, selection and the process of discrimination. It rules the small intestine, the pancreas, duodenum, and the enzyme production of the liver.
Libra: is a sign of balance.  It rules the vasomotor system, the lower back (lumbar region), the glandular vascular part of the kidney and the skin as it relates cosmetically.  Scorpio, a sign of elimination, rules bodily outlets and procreative processes. It rules the colon, bladder, the large intestine, rectum, vagina, testes and prostate gland.
Sagittarius: is a sign of locomotion.  It rules the hips and thighs,  the sciatic nerve, and the liver.
Capricorn: refers to limitation and the process of hardening.  It rules the skin  and also rules the knees, hair, nails, teeth and cell walls.
Aquarius: can refer to rare illnesses and nervous ailments. It is involved in blood circulation and the oxidation processes in the body. It rules the lower leg, calf and ankles, and the valves of the heart.
Pisces: can refer to diseases that are hard to diagnose or cure.  Pisces can refer to incurable diseases.  It rules the feet and toes, the lymphatic system, and the spleen in its lymphatic role.Article by Diane CramerExtract taken from

Psychosomatic Therapy – Emotional Release

Written on the 8 September 2010 by Karen Matheson

Psychosomatic therapy is a technique of assessing the mind/body communication and its affects on the structural alignment of the human body. This assessment is then used to identify the reasons as to why a person has shifted out of balance viagra 25mg. By working the physical body, this allows the energy to flow and balance to be restored.

By analysing the condition of the body shape, size, tissue and any contorting of the structure, the emotional past of a person can be revealed. These features can be seen through the face, hands, feet or the body as a whole.

You may have noticed that some bodies walking past you are ‘bent out of shape’. What that means is that they are actually off-center. This can happen front to back or left to right. If you look at the human body using a plumb line, by standing a person along side of it you can actually see how far the person pulls or pushes him or herself from their center point. Also, the body can become twisted as it struggles between the physical and mental doings.

How does this happen? We are emotional beings with our emotions ranging from tranquility to rage, with each emotion creating a different posturing of the body. When we are experiencing joy our body moves differently than when we are feeling anger. Our bodies are in the ‘fight or flight’ mode from the time we enter the world, and some believe from the time of conception through the mother connection. With the many events in our lives, the body responses to situations at an emotional level and, with repeated experiences, the programming of a response occurs. If the situation is one that the person is unsure of how to respond, the body stores the memory at cellular level. This allows the person to retrieve the experience in the future to complete the response once it has the conscious awareness of how to deal with it. With age comes wisdom.

With more situations stored or the more protection that is needed to feel safe in the world, the body adds tissue. The psychosomatic term would be ‘Issue in the Tissue’. That is why weight plays a factor in the assessment. Now, for those who are thinking, “I am thin so I must not have any issues,” remember if your response system is in ‘flight’, then you would not be in your body and would not need the tissue for survival because you are not ‘home’. If you are not home, then where would you be? You would be in your head. To confirm this listen to how you speak; I think, I hear, I know, I see are all senses of the head. Rather than I feel or I sense which are senses of the body.

If you can imagine being in a car accident, physical fight or an abusive situation, the body’s first response is to survive the experience. As the body goes into survival mode, it goes into a protective positioning for the experience. If you are not able to process the situation at both the emotional and physical levels quickly enough in order to survive, the emotional demand will be stored at cellular level and the physical body will be taken care of first. If the situation is repeated at different times in one’s life, with enough repeated experiences a pattern of response is created not only on the physical level but also on the emotional level. The post-traumatic results are a blocked memory, physical aliments and becoming emotionally locked in the situation through fear, anger or pain. Understand, however, that the experience does not have to be as traumatic as the above situations. It can be any situation that a person did not feel safe in.

By knowing that the human body is made up of bone structure, internal organs, and the emotional and mental body, you come to a more complete understanding that if the body is out of balance at one level it has an affect on the others.

Chakras are the major energy centers of the body. These centers are positioned along the spine and each chakra has internal organs associated to it. By understanding the body at the energetic level, you can see how the structure and internal organs can be compromised when it contorts, throwing its balance and rhythm off and hindering the body from being at its full potential.

Psychosomatic therapy uses over one hundred emotional trigger points on the body. Through the technique of triggering the ‘buttons’ through bodywork, Soul Energetic or massage, the body retrieves the memory or emotion. Once the release happens a person may have memory flashes, emotional rushes or a surge of energy. They are then able to call in the consciousness of today and rationalize or process the experience, allowing it to be finished or released. When the body goes into protective posturing, the memory is store in that position, so when a person goes through the release, the body will sometimes contort back to the original positioning to release the memory faut il une ordonnance pour du viagra.

Benefits of psychosomatic therapy are a shifting of the structural body, an emotional calmness, and a conscious choice to respond to things in the now, no longer relying on the old response system. In some people, a reduction in weight occurs due to a release of the need to protect from the emotional past experience.

With the busy lifestyles that we live, dealing with today is a challenge without going into the past to deal with the ‘old stuff’. However, if the body is not balanced at the spiritual, mental or emotional levels, the physical body manifests illness. When this happens, the symptoms can be anything from repeated colds to chronic pain. The question is: your body is speaking, are you listening?


Earth Chakras

This year I have had the privilege of traveling to various parts of the globe. I visited Egypt in the early part of the year to explore my ancient-ness and experience the energy that is just so present there. The energy can only be explained as transformational. I traveled with a group of energy workers, and we held sacred ceremonies and meditations whilst enjoying private time in the most amazing historical parts of Egypt.

Shortly thereafter, Koichi and I traveled to Japan and Korea for business and enjoyed the Japanese/Korean hospitality immensely whilst also taking in the enormous energy of these places. We had a very successful trip and look forward to doing it all over again next year.

In August I journeyed to Uluru with some high level energy workers. Wow. The energy there is extra-ordinary, this taught us all about the masculine/feminine split. We were able to hold a ceremony and explore the beauty of heart and the resonance of the energy of the land and its people.

Looking forward to sharing further experiences of travel and earth magik with my students, friends and people of MSQ.

Manifest creation — Tuning into Our Mother

Ancient people knew that wherever the earth’s energy gathered into a vortex was a sacred place. These strongly charged areas of the globe have also been the places where people have chosen to build churches, temples and other centers of spirit and learning. Places like Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Egypt, Easter Island, and so on are well known as vortex spots. There are three main types of vortexes – all three are replenishing and supercharged with high quality energy.The three vortex types are:

* Electric – stimulates and energizes, activates
* Magnetic – attracts energy to the area
* Electromagnetic -both activates and attracts energy

There are powerful vortexes scattered around the globe that are, in essence, the Earth’s chakra system. Earth has both a major and a minor chakra system, just as people do. With the advent of modern life and wide spread pollution, the Earth’s chakras have become contaminated – and in need of clearing. Ancient mystics such as Cheese the Druids used song, sounds, and ceremonies to keep a chakra open, cleaned, and in proper working order. More and more people in the 21st century are remembering these old ways and are once again paying homage in ritual to the Great Mother. People are relearning the ancient shamanic and medicine way knowledge, centered on a relationship with the Earth. This not only helps heal the Earth, but affects the person strongly as well. Again, the relationship between the Earth and us is reciprocal. We affect each other in direct and subtle ways.

As people meditate and send energy to the Earth while close to a vortex point, most come to a common realization. These vortexes serve as portals – ones that humans can tap to touch their own higher dimensional selves. All of us have at least 12 layers of subtle bodies coupled with our current physical one. The Earth has these layers as well. When we are close to an active chakra of the Earth, it energizes us to “see” things the way they really are – multidimensional and ever evolving.

Although some may think vortexes and energy grids are pure fantasy, science is beginning to prove that this ancient teaching is actual fact. As Joseph Jochmans wrote in Earth, the Crystal Planet”In 1973, three Russians–historians Nikolai Goncharov, construction engineer Vyacheslav Morozov. and electronics specialist Valery Makarov–announced in the science journal for the Soviet Academy of Science, Chemistry and Life, their discovery of a geometric grid pattern which appears to interlink a wide number of Video natural phenomena into a single planetary system. Their work was based on the flndings of American researcher Ivan T viagra generique sur le net. Sanderson who identified what he called twelve vile vortexes or electromagnetic energy disturbances located equidistant over the surface of the globe, the so-called Bermuda Triangle near the Caribbean and the Devil’s Sea off Japan being two of these. What the three Russians found was an underlying framework linking these centers into a dual crystal structure, a combination between an icosahedron and a dodecahedron. Not surprisingly, these happen to be the Fourth and Fifth Solids in the Platonic series, which were projected outward by the Earth for over the last million years or so.”

If you get a chance to rest and meditate at one of the major earth vortexes, do make sure that you listen closely. It is commonly accepted that there is at least one major chakra on each continent. The cardinal seven chakras are:

* 1st chakra – Mt. Shasta, California

* 2nd chakra – Lake Titicaca, South America

* 3rd chakra – Glastonbury-Shaftesbury, England

* 4th chakra – Uluru-Katatjuta, Australia

* 5th chakra – Great Pyramid-Mt. of Olives

* 6th chakra – Kuh-e Malek Siah, Iran

* 7th chakra – Mt. Kailas, Tibet.

There are also four vortexes that govern the four elements. These are spinning energy portals where rituals done in a circle can open and heal the Earth, the participants and people at large. These four vortexes are sitated at:

* Earth – Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa
* Water – Lake Rotopounamu, North Island, New Zealand
* Air – Great Pyramid, Mount of Olives
* Fire – Haleakala Crater, Hawaii.

As well, seek out the minor chakras – the vortexes that are in your vicinity. Make a point to visit them regularly. As you do listen for the Earth’s ancient language. The Earth’s language reaches us via energy – light, sound, electromagnetic radiation, the elements, and so on. Do whatever your heart tells you to do in your sacred place – meditate, dance, sing, chant, drum, walk – whatever makes you feel joy and peace. By doing this you help the Earth to mend any tears and congestion in her chakras – help her revitalize her power. Any chakra work is great chakra work. When you work with one minor or major chakra it affects all of the other ones, around the globe.

Our Advanced Diploma in Remedial Massage – Myotherapy will be ready for delivery early in 2011… viagra 150 mg.

Myotherapists assess and treat myofascial pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility combien coute le viagra. Myotherapy can be utilised to restore and maintain the integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the human body and is useful in the preventative, corrective and rehabilitative phases of injury management.
Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain can be non-specific and can vary in intensity and radiate to other areas. Other symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue and weakness. As with all injuries, symptoms can significantly vary from one individual to another. Common conditions that Myotherapists can treat include:

  • Sporting & occupational injuries
  • Stiffness & pain associated with poor posture
  • Associated joint & vertebral dysfunction & pain – neck & back pain
  • Acute & chronic conditions affecting function & mobility
  • Scoliosis &/or Kyphosis
