Saturn in Virgo: Lessons From Hygeia

September 15th, 2008 by Voxx

Seeing that Saturn will be in Virgo for awhile longer, I thought you all might benefit from learning a bit more about this placement.

For starters, the planet Saturn rules the bones, skull, teeth, and interestingly enough, the Ajna and Muladara Chakras (the 3rd Eye and Groin chakras, respectively).

The Zodiac Sign Virgo rules the intestines, nutrition, skin (via its planetary ruler Mercury), and the Svadisthana Chakra (the abdomen).

With these ideas in mind, it might be a good time to use the discipline (Saturn) to do something constructive (Virgo), such as get a medical checkup, or go to the dentist, and start taking better care of yourself.  To that end, I thought I’d share a story with you about how I recently paid homage to the ancient Greek Goddess, Hygeia, the patron of health and hygiene.

I decided to take my own advice (always a good idea when you’re psychic), and finally sought out someone I could trust with my health.  I started by going to Dr. William Dorfman (of Extreme Makeover fame).  My old friend Michael Thurmond (the trainer from EM), had suggested I give Dorfman a call, which I reluctantly did.

Nothing could have prepared me for the positive experience that unfolded as a result.  Of course, having the Moon in Capricorn crossing over my Ascendant must have helped.   I was scheduled to have an appointment with one of Dr. Dorfman’s dental hygienists and started getting nervous.

When I finally arrived at the office, I was pleasantly surprised by the cheerful and amazingly professional staff.  Of course, Dr. Dorfman was kind, and very informative — mapping out a course of care that would have me feeling and looking great in no time.  I was scheduled to return the next day.

When I returned for my follow-up appointment, I was introduced to a lovely lady named Iris.  I decided to unleash all my phobias and concerns, and found Iris looking directly at me with what I noticed were her piercing violet-grey eyes.  I could tell she realized she was dealing with someone who was overly sensitive (aren’t all psychics?)  Anyway, it didn’t take long for us to create a good rapport, for which I was grateful.

Working on physical bodies has to be a very difficult job, but still I really believe that a good doctor or healer is able to convey a sense of real concern, and make the patient feel as positive and comfortable as possible.  To that end, somewhere in between the chiseling and the nitrous oxide, Iris and I bonded big-time.  The nice thing was that we still had that rapport even after the nitrous wore off.  I had made a new friend.  Strangely enough, it turned out that I even knew of her son, and we shared a few other acquaintances as well.

It just goes to show what positive experiences can unfold from even such a tough planetary placement as Saturn in Virgo.  With this combination, doing one’s duty, taking care of business (including one’s health), can bring a sense of accomplishment and emotional satisfaction.

I suggest tuning in to your worst fears and addressing them consciously.  Then, just like that other famous goddess Nike, (the Greek Goddess of Victory) said — “Just do it!”

And of course, if you have the same fear of dentists that I have (as well as so many others), you need look no further than Dr. Dorfman’s office; and once there, make sure to schedule your nitrous session with Iris, for the love of your pearly whites.  Thanks Iris!

(By the way, this post is a non-paid endorsement … I just wanted to express my thanks!)

    Hey Voxx! It’s so crazy that you mention this because getting a check up has been the topic of conversation in my house. I have not had a physical in a long time and I need to put away my fears and go.
