Today we revisit the astrological correlations of the 12 Schussler cell salts, and how our charts indicate which ones may be important for us, given how much certain signs are active in our charts. Healing our diseases is a very complex matter, and requires a healing method, our regular attention, and self-discipline.
This article is a gloss of the subject of the 12 cell salts, offering the Astrological correspondences as well as a few foods that are said to have the cell salts mentioned. Hopefully today’s introduction to these healing salts will pique your curiosity to study more about them via the many other resources that go into the subject.
Regarding the article, the comment stream in the original 2008 article was more interesting than the article itself. Fairly quickly it veered off into a very interesting discussion about the nature of disease, healing, and a hundred other vectors. While fairly long and going into some very diverse areas, it was a rousing discussion about various elements of the causes and potential cures of disease. You can find it in the archives if you want to see the comments.
Since I'm on the road, I cannot answer comments for awhile, so keep track of them and perhaps we can answer them in the future. Healing is a very important subject to all of us, sooner or later.
The 12 cell salts are considered to be necessary to our health, and I have found over the years that the salts corresponding to the Ascendant and sign on the 6th house are very important in our biochemical workings. We also should take the dispositors of the rulers of the Ascendant and 6th into consideration, as well as the sign of any cluster of planets we may have, since that shows those energies in constant activity in our lives.
The Ascendant, of course, represents the physical vehicle and therefore the primary chemical makeup of a person. The sign on the 6th house also shows important factors concerning the physical health, since the 6th represents the health of an individual. And as just noted, I've also found that if a person has a stellium (3 or more planets) in a given sign, that mineral salt needs to be kept in the diet regularly, as do the substances ruled by the Moon sign, since the Moon rules our absorption and is active in our biochemical processes on a constant basis.
Apart from these few suggestions, there are other astrological factors that show our need for various salts. However, thanks to our fascist AMA, there are some strict laws governing what can and cannot be said regarding our health and what substances we might need. Therefore I cannot offer suggestions in this forum as to what you may need.
So that you may get the maximum benefit from this article, in addition to offering you the sign correspondences, I'll also offer you a few foods that are high in certain salts. Obviously there are other foods with these mineral salts in them, so don't confine yourself to what you read here. Please feel free to explore the subject to whatever degree you are called to do so, and if you find that certain salts (or foods) seem beneficial to your health, then by all means find the diet and/or supplements that work for you.
