Hello! And welcome to the unique world of “medical” astrology. Very few people have heard of this branch of astrology. Why? Well, for one thing, an astrologer who works in this branch must really be proficient in three different areas: medical knowledge, astrology, and health/nutrition. Very few astrologers have this kind of complete background and that’s what it takes to do the work.
We are able to look at the month, day and year you were born (plus your time of birth and where you were born) and erect a natal chart. A natal chart is also known as your ‘birth chart.’ Your path that you wanted to take to learn things from, as you grew up into an adult, is dyed and cast for this lifetime.
A medical astrologer can look at your natal chart with a medical overlay or transparency over it. Every planet and every sign are interpolated into medical knowledge. For example, if your Mars was in Cancer, we would know that the POSSIBILITY of you having ulcers, an eroded esophagus, GERD, or other digestive upsets, would be there. Whether they ‘trigger’ or not depends upon you and how you handle the stresses in your life–or not. A natal counselor cannot do this.
We can look at your natal chart and know where POTENTIAL health problems can raise their head. We also know how to network you to alternative medicine professionals to help you solve these health issues, too. In medical astrology we believe that whatever is there, healthwise, can be changed with proper attitude changes, emotional changes and the client eating and living a healthy lifestyle.
Never. That is against our professional code of ethics. Let’s face it: we are ALL going to die some day from something. It’s just a question of what and when. We frequently see windows of crisis in a person’s chart–but the free will choice of that person is there, too. We cannot, 100% of the time, know what the client will choose. So, we NEVER predict a death or when death will occur.
In many ways!
First of all, there is the Med-Scan Report. This is a highly individualized and detailed report that can give you a very good overview of your natal chart from a medical astrology perspective. We highly recommend this report because it is cheap in comparison to hiring us by the hour (we charge $100/hr to consult). This report gives you a feel for type of exercise, types of food, possible vitamin/mineral deficiencies as well as shows possible areas of health concern.
Secondly, people going overseas on a trip or people who have a gut ‘hunch’ that their health is going to deteriorate, will order a HEALTH TRANSIT REPORT. You can order this for a particular month, for example. If you’re planning a vacation to South America, order up a report and see if you have good, strong aspects that will tell you that your health will be good. The transit report answers a lot of questions a person might have, too. For example, if you’ve been feeling a little blah lately and don’t know why, order up a one month report and see if it says anything. If it does, then get to your doctor, of course.
Both reports are in easy-to-understand English- we try to avoid ‘medicalese’ so that you understand–clearly–what is being said.
Sometimes people want a PROGRESSION. That requires hiring us at $100/hr to sit down and look at what is going on in your life in-depth. We recommend Rosemarie Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a medical astrologer to do this for you. Progressions are about the serious things in life. If, for example, you have just been diagnosed with a disease, a medical astrologer can do your progressions and tell you what crisis may occur and when. This will help you to get your ducks in a row, so to speak, to network with other alternative medicine professionals to ‘build you up’ so that you can pass this crisis window and continue to get well.
SURGERY DATES are a huge part of our business! Seems like there are a tremendous amount of elective surgery nowadays. We can set up your natal chart, look at the transits and be able to tell you whether the day you’ve chosen to have surgery is best for you or not. Again, if you are interested in this service, we recommend Rosemarie Brown at email@example.com to set up a surgery date/chart for you. If you must have surgery, it is better to go in prepared and knowing ahead of time what, if anything, can go wrong. You can also warn your doctor about it, too. For example, if you have to have surgery and there is a Neptune aspect, this can mean that you’ll end up getting an infection in the operating room. You can tell your doctor and the surgery nurse ahead of time so that they can do everything in their power to see that you come out of this unscathed.
We get this question so often. Many people are afraid of cancer and we don’t blame them. While we can tell with great accuracy when a possible disease may strike you, we can’t always say for sure WHAT disease it will be. We’ll have a pretty good ‘feel’ for it, but your own family and genetic background is your best indicator for whether the possibility of getting Cancer is there or not. Medical astrologers focus in on how to fix what is wrong by looking at your chart to suggest ways and means of getting you well once more.
Absolutely! We do a lot of business with couples who have had problems getting pregnant. We can suggest weeks or months when it is best for the woman to conceive.
You bet we can. We also do a lot of work with expectant mommies before the baby is born. We can tell by looking at the mother’s chart as to what KIND of birth she is going to experience. We can warn her ahead of time if we see trouble and the mother, in turn, can tell the doctor so that everyone is aware and takes special precautions to protect the mother during the delivery phase.
No, we don’t. We see patterns and signatures set up in the planets, aspects and signs within a person’s natal chart. They are possibilities. What we do is get you to confer with your medical doctor and/or alternative medicine professionals if you want a diagnosis. We would never say: “Oh, you’re going to get Cancer.” That would be absolutely immoral of us to say or do something like that.
Yes, we do. From all over the world. Many times, a client will take their Med-Scan Report into their doctor to discuss some of the possibilities of it with her or him. This creates a positive dialog between the two of you. We consider the doctor a part of your wellness team. And we’re part of it too. It is not uncommon for a medical astrologer to work directly or indirectly with your medical doctor. After all, we are a team whose only focus is your well being.
Yes, we do; in the same spirit and intention as we do with their colleagues, the traditional medical community.
That’s right! Our job, as we see it, is to get you WELL and HEALTHY! We have no interest in scaring you or making you fear us. We don’t make those kinds of pronouncements. No one in their right mind would! Instead, we will look at you, your emotions, your environment, your upbringing, your hopes/dreams and goals and create a plan of health so that you can stretch your wings in this lifetime and achieve them. After all, good health is the epitome of a good life. Medical astrologers are there to serve you in this capacity.
