Everybody is concerned about aging, and disease as they age. While somethings are well in our control (weight for example) other things require a little more intricate knowledge of our personal cosmic wiring and structure. Astrology shows us that aging is just a compound of potential problems. Issues that for most, are unaddressed due to lack of astrological knowledge .
Progress in mind and spirit, but regression in the physical.
So I will explain how this works. When you are born, your sun is in a specific degree. Every year after that the sun progresses one degree. So for example, an individual is born at 16 degrees in Cancer, by the age 14 this individual will have their sun progress into Leo. At 14, now the potential ailments have compounded, because this person has experienced Cancer and now can potentially be experiencing Leo ailments. At age 44, this person’s digestive system (progressed sun in Virgo) will also be a potential point of weakness in addition to the two previous signs.
A better example: A man is born September 12th, roughly( don’t quote me I’m “eyeballing” it *laughs*) 17 degrees in Virgo. By age 21 he will be 8 degrees in Libra. Now he can legally consume alcohol, and his sun has progressed into the social sign of Libra. Libra rules the kidneys though, liquor is kryptonite to your kidneys, and he started in Virgo which is your digestive system. So this persons health will be very sensitive and easily effected adversely by liquor. By the time this individual transits two, maybe three sun signs, it is clear that he will not necessarily suffer from heart ailments, or some kind of memory loss disease. He will likely suffer from kidney failure, renal failure, kidney stones, gall bladder, and liver problems and that will be the root of his later life problems.
Medical astrology is so very deep that a few paragraphs are not enough to explain how aspects, house placements etc, require different types of diets to maintain health. There are however, salts that are needed by each sign, because of the sun and/or ascendant being in the sign, these salts are burned up and expended.
