Chiron in Pisces: The healing of medicine?

Chiron in PiscesPerhaps it’s just a “coincidence,” but last week as Chiron (the “wounded healer”) entered the sign of Pisces (spirituality and the soul) one of my favorite podcasts, the People’s Pharmacy, broadcast an interview with Dr.  Allan Hamilton called The Scalpel and the Soul.  Dr. Hamilton has written a book called The Scalpel and the Soul: Encounters with Surgery, The Supernatural, and the Healing Power of Hope.

It’s unusual to find an established medical professional talking about the supernatural and healing powers, but it coincides perfectly with the entry of Chiron into Pisces.  At a time when the field of medicine is spiritually bankrupt and desperately in need of an overhaul, perhaps this infusion of spiritual awareness into the way we think about our physical bodies is emblematic of what Chiron in Pisces has to offer.

I like to think of Chiron as the “Soul Healer” rather than the wounded healer – Chiron is instrumental in helping to clear the emotional and physical wounds that we bring into this life so that the soul can progress.  Chiron presides over the body/mind/spirit connection – the triad of influences that come together to make up the Human Being.  Physical health alone is not sufficient to provide balance – the mind and spirit must also be well integrated in order to achieve optimum health.

Chiron was in Pisces in the late 1960s when Elisabeth Kubler Ross was waking up the medical establishment to a new sensitivity of death and the process of dying.  Her book On Death and Dying was published in 1969 as Chiron was completing its passage through Pisces and helped to popularize the hospice care movement.

All of the talk today about health care reform is more about how […]

One in ten kids has ADHD

Government health officials report that in the four years between 2003 and 2007.  Researchers suggest that the increase in diagnosis may be due to the fact that children in less affluent homes are now being treated in higher numbers than previously seen.

Among 15-17 year-olds the survey showed a 42% increase.  This is particularly interesting to me because of the correlation between this age group and the Uranus-Neptune conjunction of 1992-1995.  I have long suggested that children born under this influence have brains that do not operate the way other brains do.  The combination of Uranus (electricity and transdimensional communication) with Neptune (the transcendence of the material world) in the natal chart has proven to correlate with exceptional creativity and emotional sensitivity, AND the rebellion and inability to focus that we find with anyone whose natal chart shows a strong Uranian influence.

Over the past seven years or so since Uranus entered the sign of Pisces, the sign that is ruled by Neptune, a phenomenon called “mutual reception” has linked Uranus and Neptune once again since Neptune is in Aquarius which is ruled by Uranus.

Some scientists have suggested that technology is changing the way our brains operate, as I suggested in this earlier article.  In any case, understanding the astrological makeup of our children can be of great assistance when dealing with personalities that are very different than those of previous generations.

I’m not so sure that calling these anomalies “disorders” and treating them with pharmaceuticals is the wisest way to help these children to adjust to the changing world around them.  I personally believe, as do a growing number of transhumanists, that humans are […]

Exercise can moderate anger: the Mars factor

exercise and marsA recent reports that a study which evaluated the responses of 16 young men with “high trait anger” (short fuse reactions) after exercising on a stationary bike for 30 minutes.

[T]he results of the study suggest  that “exercise, even a single bout of it, can have a robust prophylactic effect” against the buildup of anger, said Nathaniel Thom, a stress physiologist who was the study’s lead researcher.“It’s like taking aspirin to combat heart disease,” he said. “You reduce your risk.”

When the men did not exercise, they had considerable difficulty controlling their racing emotion. But after exercise, they handled what they saw with more aplomb. Their moods were under firmer control.

This will not be news to anyone who has ever been an exercise junkie, but astrologically we can connect this phenomenon with the planet Mars in the birthchart.   This will be old hat to my clients and many of my readers and listeners who have heard me recommend vigorous exercise for anyone with what I call “Mars problems” in the natal chart.
Mars represents desire and the individual will – it describes how we go about getting what we want, and how we defend what we have.  Anger occurs when our desires are thwarted, and if it is left to simmer for too long it erupts into rage.  Unexpressed anger or rage, or what I call “unexpressed Mars,” can be associated with many chronic health problems.
I recommend exercise for people who have a stressed Mars in their chart because exercise helps to put us in touch with that fiery energy that lives in the solar plexus and masquerades as our will. […]

New study finds hands-on prayer helps heal

evaluates the benefits of Pentecostal hands-on healing prayer with some amazing results.

An older Mozambican woman named Maryam could not see two fingers held up just one foot in front of her when she arrived for a Pentecostal prayer intervention in her village. Nor could she see an eye chart from a similarly close distance.

But after a healer at the evangelical meeting laid hands on her and prayed for less than a minute, Maryam was able to not only see the fingers held up in front of her but could count them as well. The eye chart also came into view, with Maryam able to read down to the 20/125 line.

The experiences of Maryam and 23 other Mozambicans, part of a study reported in the September issue of the Southern Medical Journal, a peer-reviewed journal, suggest to the researchers that “proximal intercessory prayer (PIP)” — in which the healer is in close proximity to the patient, often touching or hugging him or her — may be a useful complement to Western medical practice.

Other studies which have focused on distant prayer without the hands-on factor have not shown significant results

Fourteen hard-of-hearing and 11 visually impaired study participants were recruited at meetings of Pentecostal Christian groups in Mozambican villages and towns.

They were tested with a handheld audiometer or vision charts, depending on their impairment, before and after they took part in a prayer session.

“There was a highly significant improvement in hearing across 18 ears of 11 subjects” and “significant visual improvements,” says the study, which will be published in September in the peer-reviewed Southern Medical Journal.

Two of the hard-of-hearing study participants were able to hear sounds 50dB lower after the prayer […]

Dick Cheney’s back in the hospital

Dick Cheney hospitalizedFormer Vice-President (or some would say acting president) Dick Cheney was admitted to a hospital in Washington for tests on Friday night as the powerful Grand Cross eclipse fell right on his progressed Moon.  Cheney’s Moon just progressed into Libra about a week ago where it was challenged by an opposition from both Jupiter and Uranus (you can read how my own Uranus transit caused heart palpitations for me in this earlier post).

Cheney has a long history of heart problems.   You can read my (warning: very biased) profile of Cheney from 2005 here.  Saturn squares Cheney’s Sun natally, and the in medical astrology the Sun often represents the physical heart in the individual.  Saturn creates pressure on the heart that can erupt when the individual is under stress.

Cheney’s Sun is in Aquarius, which is very rational and most comfortable when emotions do not enter the picture, yet his Moon is in the highly sensitive sign of Pisces. Handling emotions is problematic for him, so in his case the Moon may be a more significant indicator of health issues than the Sun.  In February 2010, just after transiting Uranus formed a challenging opposition to his progressed Moon, Cheney was admitted to the hospital with chest pains which were later diagnosed as a heart attack.

It’s no wonder he might have felt unwell under the eclipse influence, with six planets challenging his progressed Moon.  There are some transits coming up that can signify the departure from life, although not always and not reliably.  Cheney’s progressed Midheaven has just completed a challenging square to Jupiter in his chart, signifying a release of some kind, and the progressed MC is just about to […]
