Astro-diagnosis is the science and art of obtaining scientific knowledge regarding disease and its causes as shown by the planets, as well as the
means of overcoming it. This new science of diagnosis and healing is slowly permeating the medical world. It is a science which will not set aside the
old school of medicine and diagnosis, but it is an addition to the old school The latter, we feel, will in time accept this newer method. At present
many physicians are willing to cooperate with the newer schools of osteopathy, nature-cure, chiropractic, etc., and these open-minded men are ready to
accept a more advanced method of diagnosis when it has been demonstrated to them as reliable.
Depending entirely upon outward symptoms in locating disease and relying wholly upon the action of medicine have cost millions of lives in the ages
past. But man is now becoming too enlightened, too broadminded to stick stubbornly to old methods which have been proved by many mistakes, by the
sacrifice of many lives, to be inadequate. Medical science with its improved instruments, the X-ray, iri-diagnosis, blood tests, etc., has made great
strides toward better methods of diagnosis. But the time is not far hence when it will be generally conceded that to know in advance where human chain
is weakest, to understand by the science of the stars where the practitioner may look for trouble, is by far the best way.
Doctors will then arrive very quickly at the cause of disease, and they will also know what methods will be best to effect a cure. When they can use
the key to the soul, the horoscope, they will find the treatment to which the patient will respond. They will also know the character of the patient,
whether his will is weak, and whether he is negative or emotional. They will then be guided in their methods of treatment according to the information
This main introduction is of a strong note: at no time should this be used in place of modern medicine, but practiced in addition to. The
synchronicity of both can give new insights to the illness, and its best possible cures.
When the medical men, the scientists, the occult scientists, and the astrologers have reached a friendly understanding, when the budding discoveries
and the broader thoughts of man are no longer at variance with each other, then humanity will know that the terrors and the pain of the operating room
are things of the past. Then buoyant health will be universally enjoyed, for mankind will be taught how to live in order to avoid suffering. The
doctors will be just as anxious to keep people well as they now are to help them to recover from disease. The time is not far hence, we believe, when
the government will feel the necessity of paying doctors a yearly salary to teach the people how to avoid the pitfalls which lead to disease.
Something I can agree with for the most part. Unfortunately, I don't believe Heindel foresaw the path of corruption our government would take after
his death. I do however believe that when Science and the Occult come to a mid-point we will solve a lot of unanswered questions.
When Aries, which has rule over the head, is on the Ascendant, we have a person whose actions are impulsive and aggressive. He acts and speaks
quickly. An excess of life force is generated by these people. This is intensified when the dynamic Mars, which is the ruler of Aries, is also in
Aries on the Ascendant, or when the life-giving sun is there. When these planets add their vital energies to the Ascendant, we have a person who is
very apt to dissipate his forces. people who express Aries very strongly are apt to be quick of temper of an explosive kind, but will not hold spite.
Those with Aries on the Ascendant, or with the sun or Mars there, are quick to anger but also ready to forgive. Aries rules the head, the cerebral
hemispheres of the brain, the upper jaw, the eyes, and the face. The nose, however, is ruled by the martial sign of Scorpio. Aries is hot, dry, and
inflammatory. Aries people with a slight cold or disturbance of health may have a very high temperature. In illness their fever will often be from
three to four degrees higher than that of the persons born under the watery of airy signs.
Under planetary afflictions these people are subject to brain fever, dizziness, nosebleed, neuralgia, inflammation of the cerebral hemispheres, and
diseases of the brain and face. They frequently suffer from a rush of blood to the head. The will of the patient plays a great part in the success of
healing. People under positive signs are most likely to respond, for they make personal effort to help the healer, while negative-sign people are
prone to follow the line of least resistance and to be neglectful in following the instructions of the healer.
Aries signs are likely to be short tempered and fall prone to inflammation of the brain through fever, dizziness, disease, neuralgia, etc.
Taurus has rule over the region of the neck, the ears, palate, larynx, tonsils, thyroid gland, lower jaw, occipital region, cerebellum, atlas, and
cervical vertebrae, vocal chords, carotid arteries, jugular vein, and the pharynx. The Taurian is very stubborn and tenacious. Taurus being a negative
sign, when a Taurian contracts a disease, he holds on to it tenaciously. He has great fear of sickness, and on account of this fear he makes a poor
doctor or nurse, whereas the Arian, being under Aries which is a positive sign, will go into a sick room without fear and quickly throw off the
If you have a patient who has Taurus rising or the sun in Taurus, never let him think he is much ill, for his fear of sickness will often bring on a
spell of it. The Taurian has a tendency to take on flesh in middle life. Being short and thickest as a rule, he becomes very fleshy about the neck and
base of the skull. This has a tendency to cause the swelling of glands, tonsillitis, quinsy, and various diseases of the organs of the neck; also
Taurus signs will be prone to throat disorders, and have the tendency or capability to become a hypochondriac. Being a negative sign, Taurus is less
likely to assist the doctor by following through with the treatments; another thing I can attest to, my sister is a Taurus,
Gemini has rule over the arms, hands, shoulders, lungs, thymus gland, upper ribs, trachea, bronchi, capillaries, breath, and oxygenation of the blood.
The Gemini person is subject to nervous troubles. Gemini being one of the common signs, a person born with this sign rising is often very careless of
his health and habits, and on this account we find more tubercular patients among Gemini people than among people of any one of the other eleven
signs. Gemini being classed among the positive signs, the Gemini person can, if he is given the least bit of help, often throw off a disease. The
diseases to which Gemini is most subject are pulmonary troubles, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, consumption, pleurisy, and nervous disorders.
Once again, I concur entirely. I am a Gemini, while I may not get sick often, it was usually bronchitis. From the time I was 11 till I had my enlarged
tonsils removed at 15, I was constantly sick with bronchitis. Now I only receive an occasional sinus infection a year. Which I attribute to the fact I
use to see an ENT doctor to remove the blockage.
When we have a horoscope to diagnose for one who has the watery and negative Cancer rising, we may look for one who is low in vitality; one who is
very timid yet loath to follow the advice of others. Cancer people are apt to do the opposite from that which they are advised to do. They are also
full of suspicion, and on account of lack of faith in others they are difficult to reach; but when their faith has once been established, they are
most loyal and ready to cooperate.
A little praise or appreciation will often win them over. They are unduly sensitive, and when hurt do not forget it readily. When the sun is in this
watery sign, the native has more vitality than when it is rising, for the sun is the giver of life and energy. Cancer has rule over the stomach,
diaphragm, the mammae, upper lobes of the liver, thoracic duct, eumification, peristalsis, the pancreas, gastric vein, and the serum of the blood.
The afflictions which may be classed under the sign of Cancer are indigestion, hiccough, flatulency, dropsy, and sclerosis. Cancer people are very
fond of food and are usually hearty eaters. Consequently they are often afflicted with diseases which originate in wrong diet; especially do we find
this so with the people have Saturn in Cancer. This planet has a restricting influence, and wherever he is found he robs the corresponding organ of
its fluids. When in Cancer he gives a desire for pastry and sweets.
The more I seem to study this, the more it seems to ring true. My aunt is a Cancer who suffers from multiple sclerosis, and is quite fond of her
sweeteners. She is a stout woman to say the least, and while she has lost a lot of weight as of late, was a hearty eater when I first knew her.
When we have to deal with a patient with Leo on the Ascendant, we have one with great vital energy, one who will not readily succumb to disease. The
Leo usually puts up a brave fight to overcome without calling upon others for help, but when he gives up, he is usually very sick; he recovers rapidly
from illness, however. His pride will not permit him as a rule to become a charge upon others.
Being a positive sign the greatest handicap to the Leo is impulse. He feels he must do everything with a very great amount of energy, which is
detrimental to the health of the parts of the body ruled by this vital sign: the heart, aorta, vena cava, dorsal region of the spine, and the spinal
cord. The sun, which is the life giver, rules this sign of Leo and also has rule over the vital etheric fluid coming through the spleen, which is the
gateway of the solar forces. Through the spleen the sign of Leo draws its strength largely.
We find those born with this sign rising very vital and full of force, especially if the sun is also in Leo; but by the destructive use of their
surplus energy they are often afflicted with heart trouble of various kinds, also spinal troubles. They suffer frequently with disturbance of the
spleen, which has an effect upon the activities of the blood, causing an excess of white blood corpuscles, which are destroyers and not policemen of
the blood stream as medical science claims.
My father is a Leo that is currently suffering from Atherosclerosis. He is quite stubborn and refuses to ever complain about being in pain. He was
raised with a rough childhood due to the times, child abuse was not yet law. He does have some spinal trouble for which he is receiving attention.
Virgo is a feminine and negative sign, the second of the earthy triplicity, and has less power of resistance that the fixed sign of Leo. Virgo may
stand considerable strain, however, being of a nervous and wiry temperament; still when the Virgoan gives up, he finds it very hard to rise and shake
off an illness. Being of a negative disposition he is apt to let circumstances rule him, and does not assert his will power to overcome.
Virgo is the natural sixth house sign, the house which has rule over sickness; hence when Virgo people once get into the clutches of sickness, they
are apt to become chronic invalids. Therefore though such people make excellent nurses, they should be advised against this vocation and avoid sick
rooms and hospitals, for they are like sponges and every ready to take on the disease of their patients.
Virgo rules the abdominal region, intestines, the lower lobes of the liver, the spleen, the duodenum, and the sympathetic nervous system. The
afflictions which may be classed under the sign of Virgo are determined largely by the planets which may be afflicted in this sign. Cramps in the
intestines, wind, colic, malnutrition, diarrhea, constipation, peritonitis, cholera, dysentery, worms, catarrh of the bowels, and appendicitis may
result from afflictions in Virgo.
Same deal; ex-girlfriend recently had her colon removed, along with her appendix.
These lase few signs, however due to editing timer limits I will simply copy and paste. If you'd like, you can read the book in its entirety for more
Libra is one of the signs wherein the sun is weak. The sun is symbolized by Sampson, who is minus his strength, for Delilah, who is the feminine
Virgo, has shorn him of his power, which was in his hair, representing the sun’s rays. As the sun enters Libra, it changes from north to south
declination; and as Libra is the sign of Saturn’s exaltation, the sun’s rays at this point, the crossing of the equator, are weakest. Libra people
on this account are not always able to rise above physical conditions. Their moods waver like the symbol which represents the sign, the scales. At one
time Librans are up in the seventh heaven of happiness and optimism, but at the least mental disturbance they may drop to the very bottom of pessimism
and despair. Idealism is well developed in the Libran.
The Libran patient should, if possible, never be discouraged in whatever he has set his heart upon doing, for shatter his ideals and down goes one
side of the scales into the very deepest discouragement, which often causes ill health. The Libran should cultivate equilibrium. Physiologically this
sign rules the kidneys, the lumbar region of the spine, the skin, the ureters, which are the tiny ducts running between the kidneys and the bladder,
and the vaso-motor system. The afflictions from with the Libran is most likely to suffer are Brights’s disease, lumbago, disturbed urine. The
disease depends greatly upon the planets afflicting: if Saturn, there is a scarcity of urine; if Jupiter, an excess, etc. Nephritis, eczema, and
diabetes are also diseases from which the Libran is likely to suffer very deepest discouragement, which often causes ill health.
The martial, watery sign of Scorpio is one of the least understood signs of the entire twelve. Scorpio produces a number of types. Usually the Scorpio
person is of a secretive, timid, retiring nature, one who does not talk of his affairs. But there is another type of Scorpio who is ready to argue at
"the drop of the hat," holding our for his point, and he can become very cruel. He usually has an explosive temper, which may, if the horoscope has
afflictions, undermine the health.
The greatest danger to the health of the Scorpio, however, comes from the generative organs and the ducts through which the excretions of the body
pass, such as the urethra (the small canal through which the urine passes from the bladder outward) and the colon, including the anus. The bladder,
the sigmoid flexure, prostate gland, pubic bone, the red coloring matter of the blood, and the nasal bones are also under the rule of Scorpio.
People born under this sign make good healers, surgeons, doctors, and nurses. But there is often a cruel and tyrannical streak in the Scorpio, and the
desire nature is strong, sometimes sensual. Low desires often bring excesses, which may cause the following diseases, expressing themselves according
to the planets and the afflicting aspects: syphilis, hernia, scurvy, fistula, piles, inflammation and falling of the womb, uterine troubles, stricture
of the prostrate gland, and nasal catarrh.
The Sagittarian is usually the most gentle and easily cured of all patients, for with his frank and kindly nature he is most trusting and ever ready
to follow all the instructions of the healer; but he will also respond to every negative suggestion. The healer may have given constructive advice and
left the patient feeling encouraged, but should one of his many friends (for the Sagittarian is usually very popular and good mixer and therefore
attracts many friends to him) suggest sickness or tell him that he is looking bad or give him some other remedy to follow he is very apt to accept the
suggestion. The result is that he often retards his recovery.
Therefore it is necessary for the Sagittarian patient to be placed under the care of someone who will protect him from adverse suggestions.
Sagittarius rules the region of the body directly surrounding the hips, the sacral region of the spine, the coccygeal vertebrae, the femur, the ilium,
the iliac arteries, the sciatic nerves, and the ischium. The Sagittarian diseases are locomotor ataxia, sciatica, rheumatism, and hip disease.
The sign of Capricorn is an earthy sign and ruled by the planet Saturn. Capricorn people do not yield to disease very readily. They are of a wiry,
persistent, and stolid nature, and will suffer considerable pain before they will succumb to illness. But once they have given in to sickness then
they are just as slow and stubborn in holding on to it.
They sometimes become hypochondriacs, and the healer must use most diplomatic methods to break up the crystallized condition with which these
Saturnian people clothe themselves. The most unfortunate part of it is that if a Capricorn who is in this mental and physical state is aware that
anyone is endeavoring to help him, he will resist help and close up against the friend who thus approaches him.
Capricorn people ae super-sensitive and very retiring. They often form habits of entertaining gloom and despondency, which have a deteriorating effect
upon the health. The sign of Capricorn has rule over the knees, the skin, the joints, and the hair. The skin of a Capricorn person is often sallow and
dry. The disease to which Capricorn is subject are exzema, syphilis, leprosy; also dislocation of the bones.
The fixed and airy sign of Aquarius is under the rule of two planets, the melancholy, fearful, and overanxious Saturn, which is ordinarily termed the
planet of obstruction, and the impulsive, heedless, emotional, and hysterical Uranus. While Aquarius is a fixed sign which endows the native with a
strong will, still when the Aquarian is afflicted by adverse aspects between certain planets, especially Saturn or Uranus when they are strongly
placed in the horoscope, he is prone to develop extreme gloom, pessimism, and sensitiveness, or he is rash and responds to the emotional Uranus.
These varying moods frequently result in ill health, which too often takes the form of nervousness. Aquarius being a mental and airy sign, its natives
are wiry and ambitious, and are prone to overdo. They can never measure their strength until the body is strained to its very limit, therefore when
they do give up they are usually in a critical state; but they will give the healer every opportunity to help them, for they are ever ready to
cooperate. Physiologically the sign of Aquarius rules the lower limbs and ankles.
The diseases with which the Aquarian may be afflicted are varicose veins, swelling of the legs, and nervous diseases of various kinds. One indication
that the Aquarian has when the nerves begin to get weak is extreme sensitiveness of the skin. There is a crawling sensation felt all over the body, as
if little insects were crawling on the skin.
Pisces is a watery and common sign, and the people born under it are of a lymphatic and negative nature very fond of luxuries, which too often lead
them to seek a life of ease; in later life they are prone to take on an excess of soft, flabby flesh, which leads to ill health. The Pisces people
respond very readily to suggestions, whether they are good or evil, and they will also respond just as quickly to the influence of the healer. Do not
allow anyone who is of a too sympathetic nature to visit the Piscean while he is ill.
Of the oversympathetic type there are too many in the world today, who think it a social duty to call upon every sick friends and encourage the ailing
one to talk about his disease, and then extend to him, oh, so much sympathy! The Piscean person will enjoy the visit of the sympathizer, but when the
latter has gone, he usually has a relapse and must quickly send for the doctor or healer. He should be placed in a very cheerful room, with a cheerful
attendant, and a sign on the door, "No sympathetic visitors allowed."
The Piscean is prone to drift into the habit of drink and the use of narcotics, especially if we find an affliction of the moon and Neptune in the
horoscope. Pisces rules the feet, the toes, and the fibrin of the blood. On account of their fondness for good food and an easy life Piscean people
are subject to gout and the swelling of the feet.
