Lipoma - Jupiter?
Was speaking with someone and they mentioned that their husband had lipoma's removed last week. I inquired on his birth data, because I know 2 other people that have issues with lipoma's. In all 3 cases, the Sun just happens to be in last 10 degrees of Aries. And Jupiter is beat up, one of them not so bad, but two of the charts Jupiter in very rough shape either shamed with Su/Ra or conjunct Sat.
Where I'm struggling is to find the "other offender", it looks like it could be Moon or Saturn, but not finding perfectly consistent results in all 3 charts. I'm wondering if anyone else has come across this and what they might have determined. I don't recall anything on this specifically in Medical astrology course, but might have missed it.
I have A LOT of painful lipomas and my Sun isn't in Aries. It's in Gemini and my Jupiter is around 29 degrees, I think, in Leo. My Moon and Saturn are beaten up: Moon/Ketu in Libra 4H and Saturn/Rahu 10H Aries.
I don't know if this is accurate or not, but my sense has always been that it's my Moon/Saturn issues that cause problems with getting toxins out of my system. My lymphatic system can't move the toxins out so it encapsulates them = lipomas. I also have a lot of edema.
Another part of the problem is my skin. It's not taut enough so even if the lymphatics are working, the skin isn't providing enough pressure to squeeze/process the toxins out. Mercury rules the skin but I'm not sure if Mercury rules the elasticity portion of the skin or not.
So there's quite a few contributions, I think, to the formation of lipomas: inefficient lymphatic system, inefficient toxin elimination via kidneys and liver, skin that isn't elastic enough, and probably even a few other problems.
My Sun, Venus and Mars are all in Gemini 12H. Mercury in 1H Cancer
I would love to hear others' thoughts/analysis!
I forgot to say that I also think lipomas can result from excessive hormones, particularly estrogen.
Mine are, thankfully, pretty small. I have quite a few up and down my spine/back.
Painful lipomas are Dercum's disease which is fairly rare and usually affects women more than men. It's actually quite dangerous to have them removed, at least for Dercum's patients, because anesthesia and the trauma of surgery can cause even more lipomas to grow. Lactic acid from strenuous exercise can also be a huge problem for those with Dercum's.
My birth details, if you want to add my chart to your comparison group, are 6-6-68, 8:44:31 Pasadena, CA.
Best to you,
Things definitely got worse with my Saturn dasa. I had some health struggles before 2007 but nowhere near as bad as afterwards. 2007/8 was a pivotal year for me. I had a significant loss of a pet that shook me to my core (because of my guilt attached to how she died) and I finally got the courage to end a marriage that wasn't right for me. I've basically been living in a dark, deep cave for the last 15 years...very isolated. Over the last 6-8 months, I've started to peek out from under the blanket that's been over my head.
Yah, LOVE my chart... I'm laughing hysterically! 🙂
My older sister is coming up on her Saturn dasa and her body is starting to morph as well. We both blew up like balloons without any big changes in our caloric intake or exercise. So far, she doesn't have the lipomas, though. And it's all been water retention. Very bizarre.
My constant state of anx definitely smoothed out a bit after my Ketu and Rahu maturations...more of a resigned acceptance and an underlying amusement at the show. 😉
Yes, Ernst was so gracious and helped me through his medical astrology practice. I think his remedies catapulted me to the positive changes I've been seeing over the last 6-12 months even though it's been about 2 years since my last remedy from him. There was a lot of deep 'stuff' that needed(needs) to be worked out. 🙂 I'm so grateful to him! I have quite a few medical 'things' going on (chilblains lupus, dercum's, lipedema/etc.) but I feel they're all stemming from the same deep place of simply wondering why the heck I'm back here (alive on Earth) again. I remember thinking/feeling That even when I was very very young so there's always been a big disconnect between my spirit/consciousness and my body.
It really helped me significantly to be alone as much as possible during my Saturn dasa. I'm not sure what would have happened if I weren't able to be by myself as much as I am.
I hope my experiences help you! Thank you for your insights into my chart and feel free to reach out if you ever want to ask about my Cancer experiences as you embark on your Saturn ride. I've definitely learned more about myself during my Saturn dasa than any before it but I had to learn to be easy with myself and stop being so Type A. 🙂
Wishing you all the best!
