Health + Disease + Recovery
|Body image issues, perfectionism, Rahu and Shani|| |
Damage to the Body image which generates health disorders such as bulimia, anorexia nervosa, etc. is traceable to Shani and Rahu, in combinations with Shukra and Chandra.
|The very karaka for contentedness and belonging within a sheltered place, Chandra signals emotional fulfillment.||
If one believes for karmic reasons that one is not permitted to be fulfilled there may result a psychologically driven process of binge eating to have the emotionally rooted experience of being filled-full followed by a purging to deny the completion of the fulfillment.

may indicate vulnerability to public opinion along with possible lack of permission for emotional fulfillment.
One may correct this past-life based expectation within the current life by deciding to forgive the parents (Shani-Chandra) who have been unreliable protectors. In the context of acceptance of one's own deeper narrative, the decision to release grievances is big. It involves a subconscious intent to correct an imbalance-seeking-a-remedy remaining from parallel lives .
In the parallel life , one deprived another being (perhaps inadvertently) of shelter, protection, or the deep sense of belonging. In the present life, Jyotisha suggests that one of the parents - particularly the mother = emotionally unavailable or abandons the child.
possibly via premature dematerialization,
Wishing to correct that past-life immoral action, one is born in the present life with the intention to balance the karmic scales by experiencing oneself the lack of fulfillment, lack of reliable protection, and lack of feeling included.
After recognizing the pattern, one is ideally positioned to forgive oneself (first) forgive one's parents and caretakers (second) and finally gain permission for fulfillment.
Slowly and carefully, of course, often supported by conscious Seva on behalf of those with less conscious and more painful conditions of the same general type.
Shani, lord of social law, regulates the social appropriateness registers and imposes conformity of thought, feeling, and physical appearance.
The disordered behaviors are understood as different expressions of"perfectionism" which is a compulsive rejection of all things not perfect. the native becomes self-rejecting as a response to the inner argument (6) which asserts that the physical body appearance is not perfect and Therefore, it must be rejected.
Rahu, karaka for disruption and passionate desire to "get to the top" is associated with impulsive, desire-driven actions designed to catapult the native to higher levels of social recognition and privilege.
produces striking physical attractiveness, but also a need to continually promote the value of one's own beauty and a relentless quest to push harder, higher, faster for more validation of the beauty.
Typical Jyotisha placements for body-image disorders include:
Lesser but still significant experience of being judged for body appearance =
Also a complicating factor indicating emotional volatility and desire to "leapfrog' to a privileged appearance (also cosmetic surgeries) =
Ketu's dissociation in conjunction with one of the body karaka = also a factor:
UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer
In her early 30's, UK-Princess of Wales 1961-1997 Diana Spencer revealed to an interviewer that she had long suffered from bulimia.
DS' eating disorder involved food gorging to the point of illness, followed by compulsive vomiting.
She reported that via this syndrome, she felt the brain-numbing, mouth-pleasure of eating.
Then immediately, she deprived herself of the nutrient which might be absorbed by the intestinal process.
Thus a slender, fashionably boyish physique could be displayed -- even by a woman who had borne two healthy children and who ate heartily at public dinners.
Chandra-yuti-Ketu-4 = polarized against Kuja-yuti-Rahu-Simha-10 representing public image. Mangala rogesha-lagnesha identifies body appearance with imbalanced digestion, and Rahu exaggerates the anxiety.
DS eventually sought treatment. Yet, until her untimely decease age 36, she remained focused on maintaining a fashion-model physique.

Lipstick 1954-1996 drama-model Margaux Hemingway
At the peak of her 1970's career during Zukra Mahadasha, the super-model and screen actress MH was reckoned a great beauty.
MH held million-dollar fashion-modeling contracts. She started work as a cinema-television dramatist. MH was famous for her tall svelte physique, her high cheek-bones and her beautiful, engaging smile.
Unfortunately, MH struggled with epilepsy, alcoholism, and binge eating with bulimia. The misery may have been complicated by a bi-polar condition, and reportedly intensified by a history of childhood sexual abuse.

On Golden Pond 1937- drama-fitness Jane Fonda (JSF in 1962, age 24)
JSF recorded in memoire that for many years of her life, she was unable to imagine herself as being anything more than a anything more than a physical-material mannequin. (lagnesha nichha-Guru)
After the severe childhood trauma of her mother's suicide, some coping mechanisms would have been crucial to JSF's continued physical survival as a young student and aspiring actress.
Following mother's death, father marries three further wives (total 5). Excess emotional validation dependence on a narcissistic Father who demanded physical-appearance perfection due to his narcissistic perfectionism. Father Surya 6th-from-Chandra = adversarial, unreasonably demanding.
As dysfunctional as it may have been, Bulimia enabled the young woman to stay grounded on Earth by devaluing food (nichha-Guru-2)
JSF attested to her own suffering during a long battle with bulimia,
from her age 16 = Zukra-Rahu bhukti until her age 40 = Chandra-Shani bhukti. Shani-4 stabilizing, maturing, grounding occupies the philosophical, broad-view 9th-from-Chandra

Mismatched parents exacerbate body dysmorphia
Guru-2-nichha = food = parivartamsha Shani-4 = discipline in the home.
Guru parivartamsha Shani- suggests that age, maturity, and social independence would eventually resolve the imbalances. Resolution in Chandra-Shani bhukti.
JSF recovered from the eating disorder, although she remained a careful eater due to the social expectations of her profession (Shani rules 3 photographs).
Working continuously into her 80's, JF continues to participate in commercial media publication, dramatic acting, and fashion modeling. The food issues did not disappear.
After the youthful extremes of self-harming binge behavior, caused at least partly by the violent suicide of her bipolar mother at JSF's age 12, JSF's health and appearance has benefitted from a mature approach to diet austerity..
~~ Joseph Murphy, Ph.D. (1963). The Power of Your Subconscious Mind ,p 38-39
"... Motion and emotion must balance.
As in heaven [your own mind] so on earth [in your body and environment].
This is the great law of life."
You will find throughout all nature the law of action and reaction, of rest and motion.
These two must balance, then there will be harmony and equilibrium.
If you think negatively, destructively, and viciously,
What is your idea or feeling about yourself now?
Every part of your being expresses that idea.
Your vitality body, financial condition, friends, and social status
represent a perfect reflection of the idea you have of yourself
This is the real meaning of what is impressed in your subconscious mind and what is expressed in all phases of your life.
We injure ourselves by the negative ideas we entertain.
How often have you wounded yourself by getting angry, fearful, jealous, or vengeful?
These are the poisons that enter your subconscious mind.
You were not born with these negative attitudes.
Feed your subconscious mind life-giving thoughts
and you will wipe out off the negative patterns lodged within it.
As you continue to do this, all the past will be wiped out and remembered no more."
