Using Astrology as a Guide in Energy Work
by Carmen Turner-Schott, MSW,

I have been practicing astrological counseling for the past thirteen years.  During my counseling experiences, research, mentoring and conversations with clients is when I realized that astrology is purely energy.  Astrology is the map of the soul and shows everything about our personality, emotions, relationships, impulses and especially our health.  

By understanding the basic energy of our client’s we can utilize one of the deepest and most profound tools available; astrology.  Many energy workers use crystals, minerals, stones and pendulums.  A vast variety of tools are used when healing others; whether we are reiki practitioners, pranic healers, physical therapists or chiropractors. 

All modalities are created to serve others and to move energy throughout the body for alignment and health.  Hippocrates believed that to truly be a healer and physician we must have a basic understanding of astrology. He is quoted saying, “He who does not understand astrology is not a doctor but a fool.”  Hippocrates realized that astrology is a mirror of our health, shows body sensitivities and areas of vulnerability.

Astrologers calculate what is called a natal chart. This chart is the blueprint for your life and reveals areas of vulnerability especially in areas of health and wellness. The sixth house in the natal chart is the house that rules health, medicine and hospitals. Having certain planets in this house will shed light on the specific types of illnesses an individual may succumb to and in the very least reveal areas of sensitivity. Whatever sign is on the sixth house cusp is extremely important when looking at certain illnesses in our lives.  There are many issues to look for in the chart but the basic gift is to bring awareness to clients about where their vulnerabilities are.  

I am often drawn to certain areas of the body and once I take a look at the client’s astrology natal chart, I get validation. The very areas I am drawn to are related to their Sun Sign and sign on the sixth house cusp. 

Brief Description of the Sun Signs and What Health Systems and Body Organs They Rule.  

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and is known to rule the head and face region of the body. Arians are often prone to migraine headaches, head injuries, and any types of illnesses involving the skull, head and face.  

The sign Taurus is susceptible to thyroid disease, neck and shoulder problems. Many individuals who are Taurean or have this energy on the sixth house cusp suffer from thyroid troubles.  

The sign Gemini is known to rule the hands, arms, lungs and nervous system. Gemini’s are susceptible to any type of lung and respiratory problems such as bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma.

Cancer sun sign individuals are susceptible to breast cancer because they rule the breast and stomach region. The digestive system is often a sensitive area for them as well.  

Charismatic Leo rules the heart, circulatory system and spinal cord. Leos have big hearts and are often generous but if they do not feel loved and appreciated illness often manifests in the heart area such as angina, clogged arteries, or heart disease.  

Virgo is known as the worrier of the zodiac and often suffers from ulcers, reproductive system disorders, digestive problems and irritable bowel syndrome.  

The key to good health for a Libra is balance. They are constantly learning to balance all areas of their life and are susceptible to lower back problems and are known the rule the kidneys and filtering system of the urinary system.  

The most powerful sign in the zodiac is Scorpio and they are often diagnosed with cervical problems, cysts of the ovaries, endometriosis and any illnesses affecting the sexual organs and reproductive system. Many Scorpios are also prone to eliminatory disorders such as irritable bowel, crohn’s disease, constipation and hemorrhoids.  

The traveler and free spirit Sagittarius rules the hips, thighs and liver. It is important for them to watch alcohol consumption throughout their lives. Many Sagittarians suffer at some time in their life from sciatic nerve problems.

Capricorn is known as the achiever and person who works hard to reach the top of the mountain.  It would not surprise you why they rule the knees, skin and bones. Many Capricorns suffer from knee injuries and skin disorders such as acne, shingles and moles.  

The sign Aquarius rules the ankles, shins and circulatory system. Many Aquarians are prone to sprained ankles and problem with circulation in the muscles and limbs.  

The final sign of the zodiac is Pisces. Pisces rules the feet and lymphatic system which filters the blood from infection.  

Understanding basic astrology rulerships of bodily areas and understanding susceptibility will help energy workers and healers narrow in on certain areas of susceptibility.
