A proper understanding of the two terms health and
disease is necessary.
(a) Health is that condition of the body in which all
the parts are sound, and the several functions are properly
performed. Disease is that condition in which the
vitality is diminished, and when one or more of the
natural functions are not properly performed.
(b) Diseases arise from two chief causes.
(1) Indirect causes, due to unhealthy conditions,
heredity, incorrect methods of living, excesses, and
(2) Direot causes, due to climate, heat and cold,
infection, poisons, accidents.
It can therefore be said that, to be healthy, one must
have a sound body and a well-balanced mind, and then all the various ailments may be rectified, and in many cases prevented by natural methods of living.In considering the human body from an astrological point of view, we must understand that it is divided into twelve major parts, each separate part being under the dominion of one of the twelve zodiacal signs. Astro-diagnosis is the science and art of obtaining scientific knowledge regarding disease and its causes as shown by the planets, as well as the means of overcoming it. This new science of diagnosis and healing is slowly permeating the medical world. It is a science which will not set aside the old school of medicine and diagnosis, but it is an addition to the old school.
At present many physicians are willing to cooperate with the newer schools of
osteopathy, nature-cure, chiropractic, etc., and these open-minded men are
ready to accept a more advanced method of diagnosis when it has been demon-
strated to them as reliable.
Depending entirely upon outward symptoms in locating disease and relying
wholly upon the action of medicine have cost millions of lives in the ages
past. But man is now becoming too enlightened, too broadminded to stick
stubbornly to old methods which have been proved by many mistakes, by the
sacrifice of many lives, to be inadequate.
Medical science with its improved instruments, the X-ray, blood tests, etc., has made
great strides toward better methods of diagnosis. But the time is not far
when it will be generally accepted that to know in advance where human
chain is weakest, to understand by the science of the stars where the prac-
titioner may look for trouble, is by far the best way.
Doctors will then arrive very quickly at the cause of disease, and they will also know what methods will be best to provide a cure. When they can use the key to the soul, the horoscope,they will find the treatment to which the patient will respond. They will also know the character of the patient, whether his will is weak, and whether he is negative or emotional. They will then be guided in their methods of treatment according to the information thus obtained.
Disease may be classed under two heads, latent and active. “Symptoms” give indication of disease which is in process of materializing. Latent tendencies to disease are shown by the planetary afflictions in the horo-scope of birth. In some instances these tendencies may remain latent during the entire life because the native has lived in such a manner that no strain was put on the body which would give the planets a chance to develop their latent weakness. If there is a weak link in a chain but no strain is put upon it, the chain will remain whole. So in the case of planetary afflic-tions, they too may remain latent. But let the native abuse his body and at once these weak spots will appear. This gives us the second class of dis-ease, the active type. When the planetary aspects have been stirred into
action and disease has appeared, the progressed planetary positions give the diagnostician the key to it.
When the medical men, the scientists, the occult scientists, and the astrologers will reach a friendly understanding, when the budding discov-eries and the broader thoughts of man are no longer at variance with each other, then humanity will know that the terrors and the pain of the operat-ing room are things of the past. Then buoyant health will be universally enjoyed, for mankind will be taught how to live in order to avoid suffering. The doctors will be just as anxious to keep people well as they now are to help them to recover from disease.
The time is not far hence, we believe, when the government will feel the necessity of paying doctors a yearly sal-ary to teach the people how to avoid the pitfalls which lead to disease.Soon that era we all will see where astrology helps mankind overcome all the ailments in a much mature way than it is now. And I hope this Seminar/conference heralds that era. Thanks all.
