Health astrology deals with the principle that one's personality influences one' s health. It recognizes that we are biologically attuned to the movements of the planets. We constantly receive magnetic energy from the planets through our aura and skin. Hence, one can only achieve health by living in harmony with the universal life forces.

The natal chart accurately describes one's personality and one's potential internal conflicts, which can lead to imbalances.

Bird Flu and Astrology Plagues, epidemics or pandemics like the dreaded bird flu, all of which are deadly are generally ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter takes about one year to go through a zodiac sign, so annual worldwide outbreaks of the common, mutating influenza virus might be marked by Jupiter's sign transits. Astrologers ascribe rulership of grain-eating bird such as chickens and swans, both carriers of the avian flu virus to Jupiter. This is noteworthy since we are in the waning degrees of Pluto in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius.. The Saturn-Neptune cycle also plays an important role in the spread of the avian flu virus.

Did you know that....

AIDS, whose virus was discovered in 1983, would be associated with the number 83, and galaxy M83 which is in the constellation Hydra, and the bear. AIDS hibernates in people before it wakes up and kills them like a bear. In Greek mythology, the Hydra was a multi-headed serpent which kept growing a new head, each time one was cut off by Hercules; the Hydra had nine heads, the middle one being immortal. This sounds like AIDS, which keeps mutating.
