The Mindbody Connection

One of my brilliant readers recommended the work of Dr. John Sarno to me because of my interest in energy and healing in the birthchart. After a quick Google search I was hooked and ordered his book: Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection. I like the way he melds the words “Mind” and “Body” to show that the two are really united rather than two separate entities. This is the third of three books Dr. Sarno has written on chronic pain. His premise is that many of the health problems […]

The astrology of Multiple Sclerosis: Jack Osbourne

Osbourne

Just a few weeks ago I did a reading for a client with MS and wrote about it here in a discussion of the correlation between “warrior energy” and immune system disorders including MS.  Shortly thereafter celebrity Jack Osbourne announced that he has been diagnosed with MS. Osbourne is known primarily through the television reality show The Osbournes in which he is portrayed as the rebellious and drug addicted son of metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne.  Jack Osbourne was dyslexic as a child and put on Ritalin for an ADD diagnosis as […]

The astrology of Ellen DeGeneres’ health scare

ellen-degeneres

Disclaimer: I am not a medical profession and I have no medical training.  I do, however, have a special interest in the astrological analysis of health effects. Ellen DeGeneres was treated on Monday for chest pains that began on Sunday.  Although she laughed off the pains on her talk show Monday, she was evidently sufficiently alarmed by them to call 911 during a meeting at the Warner Brothers Lot at 11:53 am on Monday. Ellen’s astrology chart shows that not only does she have the Sun in Aquarius, but also […]

Ten things you should know about astrology

While I’m out of town I’m reposting some older articles you might enjoy. 1.  Your birthchart is much more than your Sun sign.  You have more than ten different astrological signatures in your chart!! The astrology that most people know comes from the horoscope in the newspaper.  If you’re an Aries, you’ll meet an interesting person today.  Libra, it’s time to make a decision.  This kind of astrology is called Sun Sign astrology, and while there are some excellent astrologers doing Sun Sign columns, they are not very useful except in […]

An interesting astrological history

Forman

I confess I have never heard of Simon Forman, so I found this article about him very informative (it was posted on Facebook by Stephanie Gailling of Planetary Apothecary).  He was an astrologer in the late 16th century, predating William Lilly who is one of the more famous medieval astrologers and evidently inherited a wealth of Forman’s knowledge via Elias Ashmole who collected Forman’s papers after death. Forman may have been one of the first medical astrologers.  Though he “fancied himself a magus [magician],” he also obtained a degree in […]

New lyme disease research study

natal_chart

Yesterday I did a quickie reading for a new client who has lyme disease. Many of you know that I have an interest in the astrology of health and healing. My interest is not so much the traditional study of medical astrology, although that plays an interesting role, but I am fascinated by the way our emotional makeup affects the energy system in the body, creating changes in our physical health. I can’t remember ever working with a client with lyme disease, but this is a disease that targets the […]

From the Advice Column: Will I Ever Receive a Proper Diagnosis?

I’ll be on vacation until November 12th so forgive me if I don’t participate in the comments.  I will try to put up a timely post or two during that time, but meanwhile I’ve selected some oldies but goodies for you. have a particular interest in energy medicine and the underlying causes of illness as they appear in the birthchart. This is particularly true of mysterious symptoms that defy diagnosis. That said, I am not a medical professional and my comments are not to be considered a substitute for regular […]
