The Fundaments of Medical Astrology by Ciro Discepolo
A new book by an author that points to the practical use of astrological knowledge, while not disregarding the theoretical matrix from which it derives. A text to give testimony of a series of lesser and major discoveries gleaned from a whole life of studies, such as the correspondence between eyes & sight with the signs of Virgo & Pisces and with the 12th and 6th Houses, or the correspondence between the impairment of hearing and the sign of Aquarius – just to mention two specific items never noticed by other astrologers. This volume doesn’t purport to be a treatise. It does not even claim to be comprehensive. The Author simply writes down the facts that he has been able to detect correctly within the framework of an immensely vast discipline.
Nonetheless, this volume contains some theoretical-philosophical sections, such as the preface, containing interesting disquisitions towards epistemology, and the analysis of the ‘incredible’ paradox of the bumblebee – it should not be able to fly, but since it doesn’t know that it couldn’t, it does fly.
This volume also contains short sections on neurosis and mental disorders. Other sections explain how anybody can make good use of Active Astrology (and particularly, of the so called ‘aimed birthdays’) together with the medical therapies suggested by the specialists in order to improve their own state of wellness.
