Clarification on Venus vs. Jupiter ruling hormones (Lajjitaddi vs. Anatomy courses)
Hi Ernst and gang,
In the Lajjitaadi Master's course, @Ernst mentions at least twice that Venus rules the hormones. Prior to this amazing course, I listened to the equally amazing Anatomy and Nutrition audio course. In the latter, it's Jupiter that rules the endocrine system. The whole story of the endocrine system is based around Jupiter (though Venus plays an important role).
I feel stuck in a seeming contradition between who rules the hormone system overall: Venus or Jupiter? It may be a simple misunderstanding or my listening too closely (forest/trees)
1. Which planet definitevely rules the endrocrine system? (In the context of the system of judgement from the Anatomy and Nutrition course)
2. If Jupiter is the endrocrine system: When we hear that Venus is involved with or rules hormones, how should we "hear" this? (Should we really hear the gonads, rather than the whole endocrine system?)
3. If Venus is the endocrine system: What approach would be good to re-structure our assessment of the organ systems?
Thank you very much!
Hi, Jupiter definitely rules the endocrine and reproductive systems. Venus rules the digestive system.
Ernst might mean that Venus rules over all hormones, as a group of chemical messengers. Since Venus is exalted in a Jupiter sign, it makes sense.
VE is a planet of change and our hormones constantly change throughout the day, to worldly stimuli, and also to food, ruled by Venus.
Each individual hormone might be ruled by different planets, but I haven't studied that far into medical astrology.
