Endometriosis - emotional causes?
Hello Ernst and group. I'm interested in studying Endometriosis from an emotional and astrological point of view.
It's a curious condition: the cells that are found in the lining of the womb (that build up and then break down causing the bleeding during periods) grow in other parts of the body, like in the ovaries, fallopian tubes but they can even grow in the intestines... it's like womb type cells colonizing other parts of the body...
What could be the emotional root of these womb cells trying to expand beyond their territory like this? It's maybe sexual issues (2nd chakra), or the (subconscious) need to be a mother, or something relating to problems in one's feminine energy... has anyone looked into it?
2- In the chart, what are all the factors we should look at?
I'm thinking: Jupiter, signs of Jupiter, Libra sign (and any rasi aspects to it), and maybe Mercury since the problem is actual tissue growing where it shouldn't be? Anything else?
3.- Finally, what remedies would you recommend to clean out the 2nd chakra?
Thank you very much!
I had to look at chart with the same issue couple of weeks ago, Ernst suggested to look at Jupiter or his houses, since it relates to ovaries (cyst). The chart I was looking at had multiple conjunctions in Sagittarius.
Formally diagnosed yes, I have attached the chart. kindly share any insights
Thanks for the chart! Two charts are not enough to draw firm conclusions but I can see that in both charts Jupiter is afflicted (in your chart it's combust, shamed by the Sun and with it's enemy Mercury) even though it's in its own sign. In the chart I have Jupiter is in a sign of Mercury. So maybe the influence of Mercury on Jupiter should be carefully analysed for this condition. Also, the Moon is starved by Saturn in your chart and in my chart the Moon is combust by the Sun.
It's not difficult to have Jupiter, the signs of Jupiter or the Moon afflicted, so it shouldn't be difficult to develop this condition (although there are several grades in intensity) it's believed 1 in 10 women have endometriosis. It would be great to get more charts.
From emotional aspects it’s said that it is caused by ambivalent feelings regarding having a partner (because they are fearful of a profound relationship) and also regarding motherhood in which there is a big wish but with rejection at the same time. This condition has also been linked to obsesive compulsive and bipolar symptoms of high energy mixed to low moods.
in this chart I see lord of 5th house (for children) is in the 2nd, Saturn sitting with Moon (mind- but also motherhood) in Scorpio (a very obsessive sign)
Regarding what causes emitional imbalance I would think that if Jupiter is involved it’s due to the inbalance in the endocrine system producing mood swings. Jupiter also related to children
