Oh That Retro Mars!

I'm not going to claim to be a good health astrologer for that would be far from the truth. Somewhere out there in the vast realms of fabulous astrologers, I'm sure some specialize in medical astrology or health issues. Maybe they could look at my chart and go, "Oh yeh, this is what's going on with you!" But being the kind of astrologer I am, I've been doing my best at attempting to piece together the saga of my infection which began on my journey to the Mainland and is mostly on the wane now. (Knock on wood!)

Here's what I've come up with, and I'm pinning the rap on Mars! Mars Retro is causing challenges for many, and for me, it came in the form of an infection which led to a serious health issue, a hospital visit, and now recovery. For those that don't know, Mars is in what is called retrograde right now, so Mars "seems to be" going backwards.

The "re" addition to words now is part of the Mars energy. For some, it is re-energizing or re-working or re-doing. For me, re-lapse has been the name of the game. Just as I improve, a re-lapse has followed.

Needless to say, I have wondered whussup! What is Mars trying to tell me? Slow down has been the message I've been receiving from Spirit, people, doctors, etc. Being by nature a very active person, this is a tough lesson for me!

Retro Mars is backing into my Natal 5 Degree Dragon's Head and my 4 Degree Natal Mars (in my 4th house of home) and will square my Natal 4 Degree Jupiter in my 7th house of partnerships on December 20th and thereabouts. Perhaps by this time I will have understood the gift of Retro Mars and it's message to me.

I'm so grateful I discovered an ayurveda specialist in my neighborhood...not even 5 minutes from my home! "Ayurveda literally means the knowledge of life. It is the traditional healing science of India and dates back to 3,000 B.C. This ancient healing science from India balances and heals the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda treats disease in a natural, safe and effective through herbs, dietary and lifestyle changes, lights, sounds and aroma therapies, yoga, meditation, chanting, & deep cleans/detoxification (Pancha Karma) to accomplish these changes." Quote from the brochure of Maui Herbs

Without the relief I've received from the husband/wife (Dave and Jackie Reed) team, I don't know how I would have made it. The doctors tell you that a virus just "has to run its course", but my course has been a long one---now over two months! Plus recently (because my immune system has been compromised by the viral pneumonia), I got the flu...as did my partner! So the herbal remedies and treatments from this team have helped me so much!

So the other day I had the most wonderful treatment--a Svedana. This is a 30-minute herbal steam which penetrates your body to rid it of toxins. I felt wonderful after the treatment, but when I walked in the door, I looked and felt horrible.

Dream Of A Past Lover

Photo: Charles Pfeil

Many a long year ago, I had a brief love affair with a man who would eventually become a famous television and movie actor. I dreamed about him last night, and so in the middle of the night, I arose to Google his name to see what was up with him. I hadn't thought about him in a long, long time, and we ended our affair when I moved on to another. Through the years, I enjoyed his shows and movies because he's a talented actor, and I was happy for his success. When we knew each other, his acting career had just begun to take off.

All I remembered about him was that he was an Aquarius, and Google filled me in on the rest with his birth date and birth place (but not the birth time). I won't mention his name as I wish to remain private with this information. I also saw that he has suffered greatly in recent years with physical issues, and I was horrified at some of the photos posted of him! I don't know why I dreamed of him after such a long time, but with hindsight, I will probably discover the reason.

In any event, I saw that he had a Leo Moon with a nearly exact Grand Trine with his Natal Sun, Uranus, and Neptune--what a perfect combo for an actor for both television and movies! Mars was Trine his Moon-- thus his casting (most often) as an action/adventure hero. His love life hasn't fared well with few Venus contacts and not positive ones.

His North Node is in Leo, and quoting from the Jan Spiller book, "Astrology For The Soul": "These people desperately need the energy of approval". Also, Jan writes, "These people belong in professions that reward individual creative effort. Entertaining (singing, acting, etc.) entrepreneurship, or some other way of being at center stage releases their tremendous creative energy in constructive ways that bring joy to all." He has done all of these creative ventures I see from his Wikipedia profile and fan sites.

However, he's not looking well. Hopefully, this is just a passing phase.

After returning from my trip to the Mainland in September, I fell ill. Actually, I experienced two nights of illness before returning home to Maui, but my illness continued despite my attempts to get better, visits to holistic doctors, and a session with a medical intuitive....none of whom picked up on my exact ailment.

However, I had a visit from my deceased Mother in a dream, and she informed me I had pleurisy. I had never heard this word before, and so I researched it, and I even noted that I had pleurisy on my blog post of Oct. 21th on Wailea Daily Photo.

Yet my main doctor was on vacation, and when I asked for an x-ray with a fill-in doctor at Kaiser, he didn't feel I needed one as he felt I only was suffering with bronchitis. He gave me an antibiotic prescription, and thus, because of his lack of understanding my situation, my pleurisy worsened.

Finally, I returned to Kaiser late one Saturday to demand an x-ray because I knew I wasn't getting any better, and this time I finally got one. The x-ray showed my left lung almost completely disappeared and covered up with fluid. The doctor on duty that afternoon told me I had to check into the hospital immediately, and the following day, I had a pleural effusion which drains the liquid from around your lung. About a quart and a half of amber colored liquid came out, and they ran tests on this fluid. After a long waiting period, the test results can back that I had a viral infection, most likely viral pneumonia.

I'm now recovering and waiting for the remaining pleural fluid to be absorbed and released from my body. Every day I'm feeling better, but it's been challenging for me to spend much time on the computer as I've needed to rest a lot.

I am totally blessed by guidance from The Other Side.....by my Mother who still watches over me....and by my faith and trust in the guidance I receive. It saved my life!

Have you ever experienced a dream where a relative visited you and informed you of an important health issue or other issue?
