The following is a guest post by Nic Gaudette, The Dark Pixie Astrology:
Astrology can help you to predict when you may have difficult times health-wise. In this blog post (http://www.thedarkpixieastrology.com/blog/predictive-astrology-in-real-life-an-ear-infection) I write about how I got an ear infection and was so busy I didn’t plan for it, but should’ve seen it coming a mile away!
In all the years I’ve been doing readings for Kelly, one of the things I always spotlight for her is health days (along with the potential for Mr. Right, of course). If you learn a little predictive astrology, you can do the same thing for yourself.
Focusing on diabetes, the four things you want to look at are:
6th house cusp and ruler
The 6th house is the house of heath, ruling your health in general. The Sun rules your body overall, the Moon rules your pancreas, and Venus rules your kidneys. You want to track transit aspects to your 6th house cusp (the very beginning of a house), 6th house ruler, natal Sun, natal Moon, and natal Venus. Hard aspects (conjunctions, squares, oppositions) can show difficult days/weeks/months with your diabetes, especially by the Sun, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, or Pluto. Transit (moving) Sun and Mars aspects will be short, only lasting a few days, so it’s temporary. Saturn and Uranus aspects can last months, and Pluto aspects can last years, so those are indicative of long-term health problems.
Hard aspects between the Moon and Venus can be the most tied to a problem with your diabetes, though purely short-term. Transit Venus makes a hard aspect to your natal Moon 5-6 times per year, so that one isn’t too often, but transit Moon moves much faster, and makes a hard aspect to your natal Venus 5-6 times per month. Transit Moon aspects only last for a max of 4-6 hours, but those are definitely periods you want to look out for each month.
You should also pay attention to when the transit Moon is going through your 6th house each month. With the 6th house ruling health, this puts the spotlight on your health, and will last for 2-3 days every month. The very next house is the 7th house, which rules the kidneys, so the impact can continue and last for a full week each month. The 4th house rules your pancreas, so the Moon going through the 4th house can also be a time to watch. When the Moon is in the 6th house, it can impact your health overall, while in the 7th house, it can focus on your kidneys and kidney issues, and in the 4th house, it can focus on your pancreas and pancreas issues.
The Sun, Mercury, Venus, or Mars going through these houses also spotlight your health, but they’re in a house for 1-2 months at a time, so the effect is more subtle, and the impact is mostly felt when they first enter the house or make an aspect to your natal chart while in the house. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are even more subtle, with their impact lasting 1 year and up, though they can bring the biggest changes for you health-wise long-term.
Tracking your progressions can also be helpful. Aspects by your progressed Sun, Moon, or Venus to your natal Sun, Moon, or Venus can show good times (sextiles, trines) or difficult times (conjunctions, squares, oppositions) with your health and diabetes. Extra focus on your diabetes can be found when your progressed Sun, Moon, or Venus is in your natal or progressed 6th house, or enter Cancer (ruler of pancreas) or Libra (ruler of kidneys). Difficulties can come when your progressed Sun, Moon, Venus, or 6th house cusp are at critical degrees (sensitive points).
New and full moons and eclipses can also act as triggers for health issues. New and full moon aspects only last up to 3 days, but eclipse aspects can last for several weeks to months. Look for conjunctions, squares, or oppositions to your natal or progressed Sun, Moon, Venus, or 6th house cusp.
