Hi, does anyone have any information on ear infections and sinus infections and astrology?
Any help would be appreciated.
Love and light,

Hearing itself has traditionally been considered to be Saturn ruled, but this is because the little hammer in the ear has often been compared to a sickle.
In reality, I have found that chronic infection is usually due to excess water and low fire. When people have high fire, they destroy the causative organisms through fever. Thanks, however, to immunizations and many other issues such as hard to digest food, antibiotic abuse, and excessive consumption of sweets, many people have lingering infections and inadequate immune response.
The part of the immune system that needs to differentiate alien organisms from those that are safe is watery as is the extra viscosity and thickness that water creates to protect tissue from penetration by infective organisms.
Ergo, bringing the fire and water elements into balance is one form of long-term prevention. Short-term, building up the immunity through herbs and diet is helpful as are specially formulated ear drops, most of which contain garlic and mullein in an olive oil base.
We carry these sorts of products in our herbal pharmacy but they are not listed online. You can e-mail for further information if you want to follow up or you can consult a health care professional in your area.
Best wishes for speedy relief because ear infections are not only painful but apt to damage hearing so you want to get on top of this situation as quickly as possible. All infection tends to result in some degree of scar formation so you might want to use an anti-scarring protocol once the infection is gone. Most people use red clover and/or turmeric for this and some use homeopathic remedies such as Thios in a 30C potency, but a specialist would prescribe the remedy correct for you after taking a proper medical history.

Oh wow, thank yOu Ingrid! I wasn't expecting such a detailed answer and was pleasantly surprised.
What do you mean balance the elements? I have Pisces rising in my natal chart and a tight Grand Trine in water but no Fire. In my progressed chart I have a huge stellium in Pisces and Mars progressed to Scorpio but actually have some Fire there--my rising has progressed to Aries. ;) How do I balance the elements?
Love and light,

I am responding to this question under the new topic "Constitutional Types". In the meantime, I might add to what I wrote before in emphasizing that those with more fire tend to be able to burn off toxins and pathogens by running fevers. Those unable to generate these acute responses are more prone to chronic conditions . . . even if exposed to the same causative agents as those who do have fevers.

Does anyone have any experience with Bell's palsy and head/ear pain? I am Taurus sun in 10th; Libra Moon (conjunct Neptune) in 2nd; Leo rising. Was stricken with Bell's palsy at work on 2/13/01 and am almost fully recovered except for off/on head/ear pain still and a little paralysis in the mouth and lips...does anyone know anything or have any experience with this? I have seen several so-called "doctors" and have treated myself more effectively than anything they could offer with acupuncture/herbs and massage.....thanks for any info. One "dr" suggested it looked like I had a broken ear drum; however, I have had no symptoms of that except head pain? Thanks for any information. sandi
