Dear Friend,


     This report is about how you can heal your mind and body by being aware of the latent energies in your aura and making the best, most spiritual use of them. Your aura is a field of energy that permeates and surrounds your physical body. It has seven special energy centers within it called chakras. Chakras are vortexes of energy, and they are the places in your aura where divine consciousness can come in and manifest in your physical body, especially if you are receptive to it and use your willpower to allow it to enter.

     Your  aura  also  has  three  channels  where  the  divine  energy  flows  within  your  aura,  and  in  yoga,  these  are  called  the  ida,  pingala  and  sushumna.  The  ida  carries  the  life  energy  in  the  left  side  of  your  body.  The  pingala  carries  it  in  the  right  side  of  your  body.  The  sushumna,  which  is  the  most  important,  carries  it  in  the  middle  of  your  spiritual  column.

     The chakras are the places where the ida, pingala, and sushumna meet together. There is so much energy in these places that the energy whorls around as divine creative potential waiting as an ever-present resource to be manifested into physical form, so that we can bring healing life-force into our daily lives.

     To  draw  upon  this  infinite  source  of  energy,  we  can  use  meditation,  prayer,  or  affirmations.  In  this  way,  we  transcend  our  everyday  consciousness  and  become  receptive  to  the  healing  power  within  us.  There  are  specific  affirmations  that  can  be  used  to  direct  the  healing  force  to  particular  areas  of  the  body.  These  are  contained  in  Louise  Hay’s  book  "Heal  Your  Body".  Often  these  affirmations  are  sufficient  to  address  a  particular  condition,  but  sometimes  a  more  specific  focus  is  needed  to  get  the  energy  to  come  through.  That  is  because  we  may  have  subconscious  blocks  to  allowing  the  affirmation  to  work,  and  these  have  to  be  identified  and  dissolved.  The  blocks  may  be  present  because  we  have  grown  up  in  a  culture  that  asserts  mind-body  duality,  rather  than  mind-body  unity.  There  may  also  be  blocks  because  of  individual  karma  from  the  past  or  individual  lack  of  recognition  of  future  possibilities.  This  is  where  astrology  comes  in  -  to  identify  any  blocks  you  may  have  and  to  give  you  guidance  as  to  how  to  dissolve  them,  so  that  you  can  become  one  with  the  Source  and  fulfill  your  divine  purpose.

     Louise Hay’s book also links the physical conditions and affirmations with particular vertebrae in the spine. This is helpful because the sushumna is located in the middle of your spinal column, and using the most specific affirmation possible should bring the healing light to the part that needs healing. However, if there is a blockage at the unconscious level, it will manifest on the physical level in the form of a blockage in the energy of the physical spine. The tension from this will be observable, as one or more bones in the spine will be out of alignment and there will be various symptoms in the surrounding muscles, organs, or other parts of the body. This report then, is designed to give you insight into the nature of any such blockages that you may be likely to have as an individual. The report also suggests ways of dissolving them and getting your own healing energy flowing. It will still depend on your own willpower whether you choose to use these new insights and how, in order to better your own health.

     This  report  neither  diagnoses  nor  prescribes,  but  works  on  the  subtler  level  of  the  astral  aura,  as  described  by  astrology,  to  understand  and  potentially  re-direct  the  energies  before  they  manifest  on  the  physical  level,  so  that  you  may  be  in  tune  with  the  higher,  spiritual  purpose  for  which  the  energies  are  intended  rather  than  have  them  manifest  as  any  lack  of  vitality  or  health.

     This report is dedicated to my chiropractor, Dr. John Bjarnason of Toronto, who has greatly assisted me in combining my astral knowledge of my aura with its unblocked, physical manifestation, so that I have been able to enjoy better health

Chapter 1:  The Ascendant



Virgo Rising:


     Your outward expression of your Heart Chakra is likely to be a willingness to help in practical ways and to attend to every detail. Your partner is likely to provide a balance for that by being imaginative, creative, and compassionate.





Chapter 2: The Sun


Sun in Aquarius:


     Your Sun-sign of Aquarius rules your spinal cord and therefore gives you unusual access to the higher energies in your aura. You are readily able to see how the body, mind and spirit all work together as one. Aquarius also rules your calves and ankles - a part of your body that has very good flexibility of movement, allowing your mind to direct your body to turn in any direction where you decide to step. Aquarian universality is also seen in the fact that Aquarius rules the oxygenation of every cell of your body through deep breathing. In fact, breathing exercises would be very good for your health, to improve your circulation on the physical level and to inhale prana (a subtler form of astral energy) along with the oxygen.


     In order for your spinal cord to carry the energy currents within your spine, it is very important that you keep the vertebrae in your spine properly aligned, so that there will be no block to the flow. You also need to maintain a healthy, active heart, so that the oxygen you breathe in can be transported to every cell.


Sun in 5th house:


     The Sun rules your Solar Plexus, and its house shows how you bring the energy of this chakra out into the world. Your Solar Plexus gives you self-confidence, and you approach everyday life with the belief of "I can." You apply this in your ability to lead, to be artistic, and to express your love of life. You set an example for others as to how to enjoy life, and you are good at teaching children.


Sun Sextile Moon:


     Here you have an opportunity to harmonize the two very important polarities of the Sun (representing male energy) and the Moon (representing female energy). The resolution of these two polarities is a path to the higher realm of divine unity. You have been born with a vision of this harmony because your relationships tend to be good and your parents got along well. Your Solar Plexus and Spleen Chakra are likely to be healthy.


Sun Conjunct Venus:


     The Sun rules your Solar Plexus and Venus your Heart Chakra. Make sure that you assert yourself in your relationships, so that you are not just doing what the other person wants. Make sure that you assert yourself with love, rather than just through your ego. Then your energy will flow beautifully, freely, and artistically.


Sun Square Saturn:


     The challenge for you is to be able to express yourself creatively and make a living at the same time. The Sun rules your Solar Plexus and your own identity. Saturn rules your Root Chakra and your sources of stability. In the past, you were somehow separated from your roots, but through your own conscious willpower you can succeed.





Chapter 3: The Moon


Moon in Sagittarius:


     You can nurture yourself and others with your very positive, optimistic attitude. You can uplift those who may be blocked by their emotional problems, so that they can see the Divine Light and know that God is working in their lives. To maintain your own high level of inspiration, it is good for you to listen to inspiring lecturers, travel, meditate and do affirmations. It is very easy for you to reach a high state of consciousness, as long as you go to a little bit of effort to turn your attention to the wealth of positive thoughts which you have available to you. Keep your subconscious cleared of any misbelief which may have entered, so that you are emotionally free to be one with the Source.


Moon in 4th house:


     The Moon rules your Second or Spleen Chakra, and its house shows how you bring your emotions out into the everyday world. You can always tune in to it and say, "I feel,” because your emotions are a vital part of your being. You express your emotions by caring for children and making sure that they are well nurtured and protected. You enjoy being in your home and creating a happy family life.


Moon Sextile Venus:


     You are blessed with many opportunities to make your home a loving, beautiful place. Your marriage is likely to be happy because you are able to express your emotions in a very loving way, and your children are likely to be kind and affectionate. Your Spleen Chakra energy very readily elevates itself to the higher love of your heart.


Moon Opposition Jupiter:


     You are faced with the question of how to divide your time between nurturing your own family and giving your time to a religious cause outside of the home. The key is to allow time for each, involve your family in a positive way in the cause, if that is possible, or else direct more of your generosity and benevolence to your own home. Develop the potential of both your Spleen and Brow Chakras.





Chapter 4: Mercury


Mercury in Aquarius:


     Mercury rules your Throat Chakra and your communication with others. Aquarius gives you sudden flashes of inspiration, which you are instantly able to convey to others, thereby bringing the Source energy into their lives. You may have a talent for channeling or reading astrology charts in such a way as to bring in the Light. Your messages are on a high intellectual plane and your thoughts and responses very rapid.


Mercury in 6th house:


     Mercury co-rules your Throat Chakra, along with Neptune. Its house shows you the areas of life where you are likely to gain information and express your thoughts. It has to do with communication, and can be summarized in the words "I speak." You are very skilled at handling detail and being exacting in your work. You have an organized mind and environment.


Mercury Square Mars:


     It is a challenge for you to communicate without sounding too aggressive, but with conscious willpower you are able to apply tact and diplomacy. Mercury rules your Throat Chakra of communication and Mars your Solar Plexus, so the key is to become more detached from your ego, so as not to be argumentative.


Mercury Trine Jupiter:


     You have an unusual talent for making speeches about your positive philosophy. You may travel a lot to learn and to spread your ideals to others. You are likely to acquire a good education and to teach others. The chakras ruled by these planets both pertain to particular aspects of your mind - Mercury the logical and communicative functions of your Throat Chakra and Jupiter the positive, perceptive ability of your Brow Chakra.


Mercury Quincunx Uranus:


     When you were young, you may have been held back from using your higher genius mind by older people who thought that you should be conforming and mechanistic rather than innovative. However, you can now be adaptable to your new opportunities to get in touch with your higher self through such means as meditation. Focus on keeping your Throat and Crown Chakras open.


Mercury Opposition Pluto:


     You need to work out a balance between your desire to communicate and the need to keep certain information secret. Both are valid needs, as Mercury rules communication and your Throat Chakra and Pluto rules secrecy and your Spleen Chakra. You need to be able to open all seven chakras to be healthy.





Chapter 5: Venus


Venus in Aquarius:


     Venus rules your Heart Chakra and Aquarius rules the parts of your body which pertain to flexibility and movement such as your ankles, spinal cord, blood circulation, and the rods and cones of your eyes. Your love for others is in the form of being open-minded and flexible towards their many different physical traits and ideas, so that they will feel the unconditional love of the Source. You can enhance your own health by practicing exercises that enhance your physical flexibility and by meditating to bring in the Light and new, inspired ideas.


Venus in 5th house:


     Venus rules your Heart Chakra. Its house shows you the areas of life where you give and receive love and compassion. The key words for it are "I love." You have a great deal of love for children. You tend to be artistic, romantic and outgoing.


Venus Square Saturn:


     Although it may be a challenge for you to form lasting relationships, you can be successful at this through your self-confidence and willpower. You can express your love for others by providing for their survival, even though this may be hard work. Venus rules your Heart Chakra and Saturn your Root Chakra. You need to improve the flow of energy between the two by cultivating a more positive, happier outlook.





Chapter 6: Mars


Mars in Scorpio:


     Mars rules your Solar Plexus Chakra and Scorpio rules your colon and reproduction. You can best maintain your health in these areas by keeping physically active. This will bring in the Source energy from your Solar Plexus and inspire you with self-confidence and vitality. You will be able to get rid of the old and make way for the new, in your body and your mind. You have an unusual ability to bring in courage and willpower in any challenging situation, and this occurs because a challenge inspires you to bring out your deeper, latent strength and get into the flow from the Infinite.


Mars in 3rd house:


     Mars co-rules your Solar Plexus Chakra, along with the Sun. Its house shows you the areas of life where you express your initiative, desire, and physical action. The key words for it are "I can." You would apply your strong drive towards acquiring information and communicating it, traveling, and thinking quickly of what actions to take.


Mars Trine Uranus:


     You have a special talent for thinking and acting quickly with positive results. Your Solar Plexus and Crown Chakra energies harmonize well with one another, so that your active body and quick mind work as one. You could apply this talent towards responding to emergencies, coming up with new inventions to save work, winning at sports, or promoting new or revolutionary insights.


Mars Square Pluto:


     It is a challenge for you to master the very powerful energies that you posses, but you have the willpower to succeed and even to do greater good than most people would be able to. That is because of the very active connection of energy between your Solar Plexus and Spleen Chakra. Whenever you assert your ego, as ruled by Mars, it has a far-reaching, transformative effect, as ruled by Pluto. Make sure that your ego is in harmony with your higher self, so that the result will be intensely positive rather than intensely negative.





Chapter 7: Jupiter


Jupiter in Gemini:


     You can benefit greatly from deep breathing exercises, as taught by the advanced yogis. You will find that by inhaling life-giving oxygen and subtler prana, and then exhaling freely and completely, you will reach a state of bliss which goes far beyond physical well-being. Gemini rules inhalation, and Jupiter’s sign of Sagittarius rules exhalation. You would also be a good teacher of breathing exercises, once you have mastered them yourself, and this would bring you good karma.


Jupiter in 10th house:


     Jupiter rules your Brow Chakra. Its house shows you the areas of life where you express your spiritual values, positive thinking, and prosperity. The key words for it are "I see." You apply your good values towards attaining a high position of trust in society, where you provide a positive example for others to follow.


Jupiter is Retrograde


     Jupiter rules your Third Eye, and you may have unconsciously (or consciously) had experiences in your past where you were taught that you should not allow yourself to be psychic, because people who do that were somehow not accepted in the culture you were in. However, you know that you have natural ability in this area, which is healthy to develop and which can greatly benefit you. Know that what is holding you back in this area is just an illusion of a problem and not a real one. It is right for you to develop your inner seeing, and there is no genuine reason not to. You are now safe to know things and to grow.





Chapter 8: Saturn


Saturn in Scorpio:


     Saturn rules your Root Chakra, the source of your energy to bring your goals into physical manifestation, and Scorpio rules sexuality. For you to be healthy in this area, you need to move beyond limitations set by others who may have tried to make you feel guilty about your sexuality for no valid reason. You then need to tune in to your feelings and decide what you really want for yourself. Once you have set goals and carried them out, you will be far healthier and happier because you will really be yourself.


Saturn in 3rd house:


     Saturn co-rules your Root Chakra, along with the Earth. Its house shows you the areas of life where you express discipline, responsibility, and structure for your survival and grounding. The key words for it are "I have." You are very disciplined when it comes to writing, telephoning, speaking, or any other type of communication where sustained hard work is required.





Chapter 9: Uranus


Uranus in Cancer:


     Uranus rules your Crown Chakra, the source of your infinite potential for new ideas and knowledge. Cancer is very much a sign of the emotions rather than the intellect. The combination would, for example, allow you to care for children's emotional needs for furturing while at the same time expanding their minds.


Uranus in 11th house:


     Uranus rules your Crown Chakra. Its house shows you the areas where you express your universal understanding, knowing and intuition. It also shows where you express your urge for freedom and individuality, and the types of friends you will choose and groups you will join. The key words for it are "I know." Since Uranus also rules the eleventh house, you are especially individualistic, innovative, and egalitarian. You are likely to join groups of people whose ideas are on the leading edge of new discovery in science, astrology, or social reform.


Uranus is Retrograde


     You may have learned when you were young that you had to conform, rather than enjoy your own freedom of thought. However, these restrictions were imposed by older people of a past generation and there is no reason now to be held back. You are now free to trust your Higher Self and be every bit as enlightened as you want to be. You do not have to go to great lengths to prove that you have your freedom, because you already have it, and the Universe approves of you. Your potential for new, original thoughts is infinite.





Chapter 10: Neptune


Neptune in Libra:


     Neptune rules your Throat Chakra and pertains to your ability to listen on the subtler level. Libra rules balance and relationships. You are capable of very spiritual relationships in which each person genuinely listens to the other. You have a psychic awareness of your partner's needs. You are inspired to create harmony.


Neptune in 2nd house:


     Neptune co-rules your Throat Chakra, along with Mercury. Its house shows you the areas of life where you express your ability to listen and to reflect back creatively what you hear, especially when you are acting as a channel for a higher source. The key words for it are "I speak," but also "I listen." You have material resources for yourself, but you are also willing to share with the poor by giving money, food, or housing.


Neptune Sextile Pluto:


      Neptune rules the subtler listening ability of your Throat Chakra and Pluto the regenerative and transformative power of your Spleen Chakra. You have a special ability to care and to heal in a very ultimate way. You could, for example, work on healing the planet. You could also express your compassion for the masses in a way that would make a real difference.


Neptune is Retrograde


     There may have been influences in your childhood that taught you that you did not have musical ability or that your perceptions were incorrect. However, the people who taught you that were under illusions themselves, and you do not need to be held back by their limitations. Believe in your own ability to listen and to be sensitive. Believe that it is safe to do so. You are responsible only for yourself, and your main relationship is with the Divine. Do not accept blame for others, but rejoice in the fact that you are safe to grow.





Chapter 11: Pluto


Pluto in Leo:


     Pluto rules your Second Chakra, which is in your lower abdomen and has domain over your emotions and sexuality. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which is the source of all life on earth. You are very tuned in to the creation of life and the regeneration of it. Pluto is the farthest planet from the Sun, and yet its message is that life is to be valued. Your sexuality and emotions reflect a vital force of the solar system and are to be cherished, as is all life.


Pluto in 12th house:


     Pluto co-rules your Second or Spleen Chakra, along with the Moon. Its house shows you the areas of life where you express your regenerative ability and your willpower to transcend mass karma, as well as your emotions and sexuality. The key words for it are "I feel." You have the willpower and understanding to transform the lives of those who are poor and disadvantaged. You empathize with them because of your keen emotional and psychic receptivity, and because of the example that was set by people who helped you in the past. You could help those addicted to drugs or alcohol to come to believe in their own strength.


Pluto is Retrograde


     You may have observed inhibitions in your childhood about your sexuality. However, realize that the adults who taught you to feel guilty had problems of their own, and that you do not have any real problems yourself. Affirm that your own feelings are real and acceptable. Love yourself and love your body. Release the past and know that you are safe. Clear your subconscious mind of any inhibitions and see yourself as beautiful and lovable.





Chapter 12: Chiron, North Node, and the Midheaven


Chiron in Capricorn:


     Chiron represents the link between your individual identity and the Universal, as it is located between the inner and outer planets of the solar system. In your aura, it is related to your Heart Chakra, which is the link between your lower, physical chakras and your higher, mental ones. Capricorn has already mastered the basics of survival and, therefore, of self-love. First you need to acknowledge to yourself that you have succeeded in this area. Then you will be ready to expand your heart to others, to show them the techniques of survival as well. This will be the beginning of showing love to them, because they need to survive first, before they can do more subtle things.


North Node in Capricorn:


     You are learning to create your own security and wealth, rather than rely on your partner's money or what you may have inherited. You have learned in the past that depending on others can result in debt or in burdensome responsibilities or guilt imposed by someone older. As you become established in your own success as to what you can build for yourself, you will find that your self-confidence increases and your Solar Plexus Chakra opens. You may have to clear some old stress out of your throat area for this to happen.


North Node in 5th house:


     You are learning to enjoy life, particularly to have more recognition, more recreational activities, and more time to spend with children. You have learned from your own past and from your parents and grandparents that a bohemian lifestyle and offbeat ideas result in too much of giving one's energy to causes, rather than being able to have a positive identity of one's own. As you become happier and more energized yourself, your Second Chakra will open. For this to happen, you may need to release some tension from your nervous system, spinal cord, and ears.


MC in Gemini:


     You direct your willpower towards making sure that you have a good education because you are aware that it is through the mind that the Light can come in through your Crown Chakra. You also make sure that your home is a large enough place to enjoy your family and culture, so that your Root Chakra can bring in the earth energy to nourish your roots and beliefs.
