Astrology & The Imprisonment Of The Soul
You may think this is an odd page for me to have on my website, given that Im an astrologist. Astrology in itself is very interesting because you can learn how different planets and energies affect you. This is General Astrology. I specialize in Starseed Astrology & Medical Astrology and then began to study Esoteric Astrology. It is through this study I began to understand how Astrology is another prison handed down to the physical human body .
As I have said on other pages, we are in a prison that's in a prison that in a prison. Earth is a battleground of good & evil and on it is fought the warfare which results in the eventual release of the imprisoned soul. The battle is spread out over a series of lifetimes and eventually you make a choice of which path to follow. During your life as a human being, the odds are against you every step of the way. You have many things working against you- things you can see such as your location, your family, your body and your own gender in some circumstances. You have religions passed down in families, you have the schools forcing you to memorize what they teach, you have school bullies and peer pressure and when you get older, you have to battle adult-hood. So it goes without saying that you add in all the factors that you CAN'T see, and you barely stand a chance. You have negative entities feeding your brain thoughts that you mistake as your own, you have old traumas and energies building up in your energy field that can lead to illness & disease, you have black magic running the world and then you have astrology influences which seem to keep you down even more.
If you have not yet read my other pages, let me lead with this basic concept: Your physical body is a prison for your soul. Earth is another prison. Humanity is in a prison of sorts because they cant play nice with others. Earth is basically a giant self-rehabilitation program. You have free will to do whatever you want and to choose the dark path (service to self), the light path (service to others) or no path at all (50/50 ratio). The majority of humans reincarnate over and over and over until they get to a point where they begin to overcome the physical limitations. (Astrology being one of them) They rise above the ego/personality, the material desires, the need for control and manipulation, violence and begin to embody self control, unconditional love and sacrifice for others. I will be focusing here on the limitations astrology gives you.
Planetary influences indicate the outer life circumstances. When correctly interpreted for the average man and for the unevolved man, astrology can and does indicate the personality, health and fate; they do condition and completely control the man who has no conscious soul experience. The moment that a human becomes aware of his own soul and is starting to control his own "path in life," the influence of the planets, definitely weakens and steadily becomes less and less; his personality chart appears inconclusive and often most inaccurate. It is the force flowing through the planets and not the force of the planets themselves which then governs and controls. The man then becomes receptive to the subtler and higher energies of the solar system and of the twelve governing constellations. -On several occasions, I have drawn up someones astrology chart and they do not resonate with it at all. This is because this person is more advanced and has already started to balance and overcome astrology influences.
Saturn is the Lord of Karma, the imposer of retribution and the one who demands full payment of all debts and who therefore condemns us to the struggle for existence, both from the form side and from the soul side. Saturn, therefore, "fell" when man fell. He "followed the sons of men down into their low place." Saturn's power is completely ended and his work accomplished when man (the spiritual man) has freed himself from Karma
The Sun Sign. This sign indicates the present problem of the man; it sets the pace or the established tempo of his personality life; it is related to quality, temperament and the life tendencies which are seeking expression during this particular incarnation, and it is suggestive of the activity aspect of the innate man.
The Ascendant or Rising Sign indicates the intended life or immediate soul purpose for this incarnation. It holds the secret of the future and presents the force which, rightly used, will lead the man to success. It represents the harmony aspect of life and can produce right relationship between soul and personality in any one incarnation. It thus points the way to the recognition of the force of the soul.
The Moon. This type of force (coming from certain planets and not from the moon) indicates that which is past. It, therefore, summarizes limitation and the present handicaps. It governs the physical body and shows where the prison of the soul is to be found.
Lilith. Black Moon Lilith is an important piece of an individual’s natal chart. The house Lilith is in will influence your colder/shadow self or even cause negative behaviors. Lilith can hide subconscious energies of malice and self-undoing.
Each planet has a Logos (a consciousness) and they are the ones who create the life and conditions on their planet. Ours is Yahweh.
A planet is regarded as "sacred" when its informing spiritual Life has taken five of the major cosmic initiations and that a "non-sacred" planet is one whose planetary Logos has not taken these initiations. Ours is a non-sacred planet.
The Logos of a non-sacred planet is becoming inclusive in His consciousness to all that is found within the solar ring. He is establishing an esoteric "understanding relation" with all that lives within the body of manifestation of a solar Logos and is likewise registering a sensitive response to the quality of the Life which informs the Sun, Sirius. He has taken three cosmic initiations.
c. The Logos of a sacred planet transcends the knowledge, reactions and responses which are purely those of the solar system, is conscious of or vitally responsive to the life of Sirius and is beginning to respond consciously to the vibratory influences of the Pleiades. You need here to bear in mind in this connection that the Pleiades—though they are regarded as embodying the matter aspect in manifestation—are in reality and literally the expression of that Principle of Life which we call vitality, prana in its various stages or degrees, ether or substance.
The Logos of a sacred planet has taken five cosmic initiations.
The effect of the influences of a sacred planet or a non-sacred one are very different, for one will affect primarily the life in the three worlds whilst a sacred planet will aid in the processes of affecting the fusion of soul and body, of consciousness and form; it will also produce the quickening of the intuition (the spiritual soul)
The sacred planets are:
The non-sacred planets are only five:
4. The Moon, veiling a hidden planet.
2. The Earth
5. The Sun, veiling a planet.
It is only in the present cycle that the Sun and Moon "veil" certain planets and are the exoteric symbols for certain esoteric forces. As evolution proceeds, the planets will not be veiled. Their influences will not be so remote.
As most of you know, the houses in astrology deal with certain areas and the planets present in each house will affect you.
1st House: Sense of self, first impressions
2nd House: Money, Values, Daily Routine & Environment.
3rd House: Communication, Siblings, Friends & Your Community
4th House: Home, family & Your Emotional Foundation.
5th House: Romance, Play, Self Expression and Creativity
6th House: Health, Fitness, Organization
7th House: Relationships
8th House: Intimacy, Sex, Shared Property & Money
9th House: Travel, Studies, Morals, Higher Learning & Ethics
10th House: Career, Goals, Success, Achievements and Public Image
11th House: Groups, Friends, Causes & Society
12th House: Past Life, Subconscious
So, if you have a harsh planet like Saturn, Mars or Lilith in lets say, the 6th house, you are likely to have many health issues. If you have one in say, your 1st house, you will likely have been brought up in a negative household.
As you may or may not know, astrology also rules certain parts of the body and affects your health is major ways.
Aries: rules the head, upper jaw, brain, eyes and face.
Aries people are subject to headaches, migraines, head congestion and sinus congestion, eye strains, fevers, wine stains (birth marks), epilepsy, stroke, ringworm, conjunctivitis, acne, gum issues, baldness, vertigo, convulsions, seizures, aneurysm, rashes and teeth issues.

Libra: rules the kidneys, lower spine, lower back, acid-alkaline balancing, hormonal balancing, Fallopian tubes, distillation and filtration of urine and buttocks. Libra native's tend to eat sugar and junk food throughout their early years, but tend to pay for it later in life as kidneys and ph are very sensitive in this sign. Venus, the planet that rules Libra, rules skin, hair, veins and the throat. As such, Libra people are known for their sensitive skin and are more prone to skin breakouts and issues then any other sign.

They are also prone to hyperventilation, speech impediments, learning disorders, carpel tunnel syndrome, neurological issues, under eating, junk food addictions, media and computer addictions, mental illness and bumps, cuts, bruises and sprains in the shoulders, arms and hands. Because Gemini rules the nerves, anxiety can literally make them sick.

Dangers for Capricorn's are rheumatism, arthritis, neuralgia, stiffness, infertility, warts, moles, nail fungus, freckles, leprosy, keloids, mineral and vitamin deficiency, anorexia, constipation and orthopedic issues.
Leo: rules the spine, the back and the heart as well as the thymus gland.
Leo's are not inclined to suffer from many health issues because this is the sun's home sign so there is much vitality here.

Aquarius: rules the ankles, calves, Achilles tendon and circulatory system. Aquarius give a weal life force and as such, native's are prone to light deficiency, fatigue, depression and anemia.

Their life force can be quickly depleted through excessive computer time and other electromagnetically toxic devices or exposure to fluorescent lighting..
Aquarius people are prone to varicose veins, leg cramps,accidents, cuts, bruises, sprains and fractions of the legs and ankles are common.

Neptune, the planet that rules Pisces, also rules the thalamus- the part of the brain that transmits stimuli to and from sensory organs. Pisces people often fall prey to the influence of drugs and alcohol. These will age and affect a Pisces native more then any other zodiac sign and can lead to death.
So as you can see, astrology really has a hold on us. Im a Libra and let me tell you, this is spot on. Ive had bladder and kidney issues my entire life and have even had 2 surgeries for related issues. I have a food addiction and have osteoarthritis in my lower back.
On a health related basis- this is how each planet affects you:
The waters of the Earth are the dominion of the Moon. Since our bodies are 80% water, its important to understand how the moon affects our bodies. Our Moon's sign will foretell what part of our body is sensitive to light, temperature, and fluidic changes.
Saturn & Mars
Saturn & Mars are the malefecs (the bad guys) in classic astrology. One of the best methods of health assessment is the observation of Saturn and Mars. We can safely state that most disease, most of the time begins with Saturn's placement in the natal chart. Saturn governs chronic conditions and Mars, acute conditions.
Mars energies are stimulating, speeding up, inflaming, breaking down and pushing out. Violent itching is also sometimes associated with some Mars conditions. He is the great invader and responsible for all invasions of the body defenses by bacteria, virus or parasites.
IF Saturn or Mars is in the 6th house (disease), 8th house (longevity) or 12th house (death) pay close attention.
Venus & Jupiter
Venus & Jupiter are known for bringing protection. However, when it comes to health, they represent a type of energy flow just like any other planet. Venus brings diseases of like nature. She excels ailments brought on by pleasure, neglect and sugar. She is prone to cysts and candida. Jupiter brings growth. Jupiter can increase ailments and is prone to diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, large tumors and liver disease.
Mercury is a nervous planet, giving off a high strung quality to the body areas he governs.
This planet rules extremes. Uranus' action upon the body is to throw off balance and to disturb normal rhythm.
Neptune diffuses the energy of the body parts governed by the sign he tenants. His influence is draining, weakening and leaking. Neptune's domain includes viruses, poisonings, contagious illness, fatigue and sleeping.
So how do we overcome the astrological limitations placed upon us?
By consciously assuming the position of the spiritual Observer, and by learning to control the reactions of the personality.
For example. My Saturn is in my 4th house. The 4th house deals with home and family. Having Saturn placed here is very difficult. Saturn’s cold presence is negatively affecting all the emotional areas connected with one’s home, family and childhood. With Saturn here, you may have older parents or those who are very conservative. Usually, those with Saturn in this house have an unhappy childhood. Its likely your mother was cold or very distant and may have had an issue with depression. With Saturn here, its possible you had been abused in childhood. In any case, your emotional needs were not met, making your childhood home less then ideal. There might be feelings of loneliness and perhaps you feel as if no one understands you. Very often, an older person, maybe grandmother or grandfather can be the one who raises the child. You may have a hard time expressing affection towards your family.
My mother is a very conservative and very religious person. We clash on every single area and as a child, this was difficult because I was very rebellious and saw the flaws in religion. I was not abused, but I did go live with my grandparents while my mother battled depression. Ive always had a difficult time with expressing love for my mother, because it is hard for me to respect her. While doing shadow work on myself, for one, I had to understand I chose and accepted this situation before I incarnated. For 2, I had to understand that she is a very different person then I am and she has her own journey which is different from mine- and that's ok! I have learned to let go of my childhood and refuse to live in the past. I accept my mother for her faults as she accepts me for mine and I have forgiven.
Now, lets say you have Saturn in the 8th house which deals with sex. You would either have a fear of intimacy or be overly promiscuous. This is where shifting into the observer mode is most important. You have to look at your choices and why you are doing what you are doing. Now, you would know this is Saturn's influence, so there you have the understanding of why. Then, understand that there is NO shame in getting therapy if you need it. Its the same with those who know they have an anger issue. I dated someone many years ago who had an anger issue, but never sought help. His anger issues landed him in jail on more then one occasion and I couldn't help but think- why would he live with this instead of getting help for it and overcoming it? Deep down, we all know what is right and what is not. If you know you have feelings, addictions, an anger issue, old childhood traumas, why not get help in putting all of those to rest and moving on?
Lets go back to the anger issue. If one has an anger issue and they begin to get angry, they must get to a point where they are mentally strong enough to shift into the observer mode. Here you observe the anger. Breathe deeply. What got you so angry? Is anger helping you in this situation or causing more difficulties? Are you hurting others or yourself with this anger? Here you can just observe and you will see it doesn't serve you. You can begin to simmer down and let it all go.
How about a drug/drinking issue? Lets do the same thing. You are thinking of doing drugs or drinking. Stop and observe this craving. Breathe deeply. Where is this craving coming from? Are you trying to escape a feeling or situation? Will doing drugs or drinking help you or will this cause you difficulty after you sober up?
This is how we start to gain control. Doing this plus meditation we can begin to rise above our ego, our limitations, our body and astrology influences.
