People Intolerances

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Yelena Yemchuk

Astrological incompatibility implies that you’re trying to get along but don’t gel in a few areas. But what about astrological aversion?  Few talk about instinctive loathing at first sight, but it’s real.  I just got a skin prick test, for allergies. In case, you have not had one, they write numbers up and down the underside of your forearms and then prick the substances in. You end up looking like you have a really exotic and quite committed tattoo. But as the doctor explained to me how there is a difference between food allergy, food sensitivity, and food intolerance, I had a eureka flash!

People are like food. Or, at least, you can equate them. Think about it: the basic premise of sorting even mild sensitivities is so that your immune system goes from slouchy conscript to special forces operator very quickly. No, this is not medical advice. Obviously. 

Astrological Incompatibility Can Be Linked To South Node Synastry

But my take on what the doctor was saying is that there are dramatic, over the top reactions to some foods. Weird defensive triggers backfire and the body mounts a defense. Others just sit there, because your body refuses to absorb them. Just having them in your system drains vibe.

So there are some people you hit the roof at the mere sight of – if they’re attending a function, you’re not there. Usually, it’s mutual. Maybe some gut-DNA-ancestral-memory thing. Then there are those interactions where you just warp or scramble each other’s Qi. That’s maybe like when your body is weird about wheat so heads off to attack the thyroid. And there are the silently vaguely dysfunctional relationships that are never extreme enough to do anything other than maybe slime things up and steal energy.

Your Psyche Perceives Them As A Threat And Mounts A Defense

Theories: It’s an elemental clash. You’re really strong in Water and they’re Fire. Or, they have the wonkier, less integrated version of an aspect you’re really polished in. For example, you’re Venus conjunct Uranus and the other person is Venus square Uranus and they’re not doing a great job on it. Or, they’re operating it with no awareness. So each of you finds the other person’s energy similar but threatening. And, my favorite theory on the opposite of Astrological Compatibility: One or both of you have heavy planets on the other’s South Node. That would do it. One of you clobbered the other in a past life or, it sure as hell feels like it.

Of course, there are also the people who would fall into the ‘nourish’ category, bringing nothing but good and mutually beneficial, easily digested energy. Maybe the distinction made between an allergy, intolerance, and sensitivity would be a useful filter to apply to people? And, if there is someone you’re astrologically incompatible with but you have to be near them, check out their birth chart

Thoughts?

Such good advice, Mystic. I got an allergy test, tho not for food. (Though, that’s next on my list, and thanks for the reminder!) It was fascinating to find out my months long cough/cold were likely triggered by winter allergies. When everyone starts dying in the pollen infused summer months, I’m finally ahhhhhh, opening up. The most shocking allergen? My beloved kitty!!!! I’m not giving him, as he does so many other good nourishing things for my soul. It was intriguing as I’d been around cats my entire life, and only recently had this mondo reaction, and now partnered with… Read more »

Jessica Adams was my introduction to astrology and in one of her books she has like a spreadsheet for sign connections which she has in cour categories : Click, clash, clunk or cosmic. I’ve used it many a time to assess a Venus-moon connection or the like.

I had reiki the other day and after the session, she told me that I am an empath. I had never heard of this before, it was a revelation-it all made sense. The tiredness, emotions, anger, and taking responsibility for other people’s stuff. So, the next day I went to a spiritual shop to look for protection crystals and a safe stick. As soon as I entered, the two shop ladies said to me ‘oh my, you are getting drained! You are so tired. A girlfriend of yours is sucking the life out of you’ I knew exactly who it… Read more »

Not sure how deep you are into it but if it’s bad you may need a rehaul, step by step. First, make sure you take time for yourself to process your self and what is going on around you. You need down time. If people are leeching off you bad, you’ll have to limit your interactions and that may prove to be difficult, but not impossible. You will grow stronger as you build up your force field. You can certainly use mantras, crystals, smudging, etc but just remember that it all comes back to you and what you are doing… Read more »

I never really had a great relationship with my mother not my extended family and I had very high expectations when I met my current partner, who comes from a big family.

That Christmas Day sounds like it was pivotal for you and him. Part of me is like, you know sometimes we are meant to have someone’s back regardless of whether we are ‘with’ them or not. Just on principle. Loyalty to the fact you chose that person, even you are not the feeling the in the moment. But I daresay he is terribly stressed to have regressed to such a state of survival oriented emotion. I hope you can get some support? Do you have someone to talk to for perspective? Perhaps a marriage counsellor might have something positive to… Read more »

oh dear, so sorry Janey. where’s Neptune in your chart? I have Neptune on the Dsc and am an empath. Boundaries are important. For me haute Neptune helps. You can ask for protective shield that deflects any negative energy, imagine this around you whenever you will be around people or feel you need it. Good luck xx

Hi supakali, I have Neptune in 8th with 10 degree conjunct moon. Yes, boundaries is what I need to do. I really think we can’t communicate properly, alas the break down. Like a lot of men, he doesn’t talk to me about how he is doing, he internalises this. Thanks xx

The Saturn transit IS helping you with it! You are identifying it and addressing it. Eighth house transits are especially difficult but also transformative. I agree with Pi’s advice of keeping it simple. You can always build but overwhelm does not solve anything. There was a lot going on Christmas Day, wasn’t it a full moon or something? Holidays are always amped up due to emotions, nostalgia, expectations, the whole bit. I had a traumatic experience on Christmas Day a few years ago and it just makes everything amplified.

I could see this. There are also the substances that you’re exposed to for a while, seemingly without any problem, that suddenly become dangerous. (Bee venom, certain foods, etc.) I think there are people who become unhealthy–even dangerous–in ones life in a similar manner.

Yep, that’s a good analogy. In a similar vein: “Guests, like fish, begin to smell after 3 days”. No matter how much you like some people, after a period of confinement with them, they get up your nose.

I really, REALLY like the premise of this! For me, I think there may be one potential caveat, however, in that I do also believe it’s important to be willing to own our “triggers” – us having a “reaction” to someone doesn’t necessarily mean they’re “bad” for us (though it can) – it just may mean we have to be more Aware, come prepared, and maybe pop some chill – I mean, Lactaid – pills beforehand, dig? Because some things we can digest just fine with a little help…I think it’s more of a psychosomatic reaction within US rather than… Read more »

This is so interesting! A young 6th house Scorp sun-Chiron-Merc /Virgo moon / Taurus rising family member is currently undergoing desensitisation. When she was an infant and throughout childhood she suffered from anaphylaxis to dairy. She still doesn’t eat dairy as it makes her nauseous, although it won’t actually kill her, as it almost did when she was a baby. I’ll skip over some of the tedious medical meets BUT the upshot is that she has now been advised by the allergist that if she doesn’t build up a certain level of tolerance, there is every possibility that a severe… Read more »

Ooh yes, this is like those studies where a touch of stress is health giving. It’s like getting the flu occasionally – various hormones get released and you get a kind of upgrade from it. My kids always level up after an illness. It’s quite noticeable in the autie one as his language improves.

Yes, good point. I have a qi vamp issue. I avoided her for several months and when I saw her again it was very difficult. She’s dating my brother in law, so I saw her several times and over the holidays. By the time a family funeral came up last month, I was able to be myself and not let her energy vamp me. It really does take practice.

Interesting about the illnesses and your autie. I heard a radio/podcast bit about nonverbal autistic kids becoming verbal when having fevers. It was fascinating.

Yes, it is super interesting, isn’t it? It’s the same when he is under stress. He probably has an amount of ‘simultanagnosia’ meaning roughly that he perceives life like a floating jigsaw puzzle – but when he is under pressure or stress – the puzzle clicks together for a moment. Words are recalled etc.

Sometimes I find that we are safer heading into a dangerous situation like on traffic filled road, than we are in a quiet, bright supermarket due to his unpredictable responses.

I didn’t know commercial milk is part powdered, thanks. Someone told me its good to fortify milk with powdered milk as you get older (clacium, vitamin D), however I know commercial house brands of organic milk are heated (a lot of goodness removed) beyond what is necessary to extend shelf life.

Our organic milk does not have this treatment so it has to be consumed quickly. There seems to be a lot a dairy intolerant people…I wonder why, (not for anyone else to be bothered)…

Interesting article! I know in traditional chinese medicine, bitter foods are linked with the heart meridian.
It is also interesting to note what the article considers a bitter food because i have seen TCM list radishes as spicy instead of bitter.

skarabMM Member
skarab

Maybe the scientists are basing the radish/bitter thing on the amount of sulphur in bitter foods (read this in another related article) – and radishes are jam packed with it.

(Interesting the connection between sulphur, el diablo and sadism.)

I also thought that bitter foods support the the Liver and increased bile – helping it with the detoxifying process. And considering that in TCM, chronic anger is viewed as a result of sluggish Liver function, then eating bitter foods is a good thing.

So I’m confuzed.

I’m a too-nice introvert with bad boundaries, so must also be a judgmental bitch for survival. People intolerances are consistently meh. Socialization is incredibly overrated. Allergies though might reflect personality traits, not the whole of the person. Unexamined privilege, arrogance, cruelty even, for example, are ingredients that poison a dish, but they can be removed. An allergen-free version is always possible. They… Read more »

Spirits are obligated to a certain degree if they’re local to the land but they’re NOT into some folks.I say make some nice daily offerings (incense, cookie bits, a pretty flower whatever comes to mind) and first THANK the local spirits. Then ask for help/protection and yass, up boundaries girl.

I think there is some truth to this…I was obsessed with peanut butter in my teens and early 20s but then noticed I would get all itchy after I ate it! I was in denial for a long time…now I eat almond butter instead. I’m really obsessed with nutritional yeast and my friend was telling me there’s something in it That is like MSG and triggers migraines? And I love dairy and can’t stop eating it once I start so try to avoid it altogether with the occasional binge. It relaxes me but totally jacks up my digestion. When I… Read more »

I get cramps from too much bread – or yeasty products I guess. I was hoping allergy testing would show me what I should avoid and what I don’t have to. Disappointing to hear that your test was so inconclusive! But I frequently get migraines and recently asthma too.

Does anyone know what’s the go with asthma? Could it be a mould or yeast thing?

I have exercise induced asthma since high school. Asthma is often part of the trifecta that includes eczema and allergies and has a genetic component. So yeah yeast and mold can trigger it. Also keep in mind people keep blaming yeast for everything shitty but i find wild yeasts not as problematic as what comes from commercial bakeries. I read a story recently about how scientists made yeast that produce insulin and how there was “escape” of this yeast into commercial livestock. Some people suspect the yeast that is making people sick is the one that produces insulin.

Woah, it’s mad how few controls are placed on scientists in regards to their capacity to change our world from a test tube – it angries up the blood!
I am so allergic to sloppy, arrogant, blinkered scientists.

That is definitely true. People who craves certain things really badly are often allergic. I took an IgE food allergy blood test which is good for detecting skin allergies. I have dermatographia so prick test would give me a lot of false positives. But sure as shit i am allergic to a lot of healthy foods like greens and fruits. Ugh. I spent my first 6 months breaking down into tears watching someone eat a salad or have a green smoothie because i wanted one so badly. I would get cold sweats at night just thinking sbout taboo food. That… Read more »

Allergic to fruit and greens!? I booked to get a allergy test for the yeast thing, but I am not sure I want to know! How are you going with it after detox? Do you get to reintroduce gently at any point?

doing well. I got some foods back again like apples, corn, and mangoes within half a year. Other foods remain borderline which means when immunity is high I can indulge in a small amount of beets, celery, lettuce, and tomatoes. It sounds so funny to say “indulge” in reference to anything vegetable like rather than dessert or junk food but that’s exactly how it is.

If you see this.. how did the symptoms of intolerance of greens/fruits manifest for you?

Extreme diarrhea, bloating, eventual heart arrythmias, low low blood pressure, sleeping 16 hrs a day, whole body itching like crazy, dry eyes, weepy legs from scratching so much, swollen tongue, anemia, etc…

Omg, sweetie… I was imagining something more subtle. 😯 keep up the good work.

OMG- YES. And I have varying levels of food issues. I agree that people can be the same way. And the more you encounter some offenders, the lower your tolerance/bigger the reaction! And we all know those people who you dont see for a long time, then you get together and on the way home think, “Oh, yes, that is why quit hanging out with that person.” lol. Brilliant, Mystic.

Fascinating — can you get that test from an ordinary GP or is it a specialized holistic deal? And yes, I totally agree with the people intolerance idea. For instance, I find that the hardest qi vamp people to deal with are the ones who are charismatic in some way even if they’re ultimately really problematic characters — just like some of the foods we crave are sometimes really bad for us. I can think of one neurotic friend who I have a major verbal / temperamental rapport with — and so it’s like a sugar high when we talk… Read more »

Ugh this resonates with me so much – used to date a bunch of these charismatic types who were super charming and then later, you’d feel horrible. Met one the other night – charmed at first by the charisma and then TOTALLY flipped my lid at them for no real reason. Reaction to how bad your subconscious knows they are for you? Like a defensive barrier.
Totally agree it’s like you get the buzz from them and then you feel gross about it after.

stellar observation, this is SO true….the most in-your-face charismatic people tend to be the ones hiding the most slimey rotten bits, and it’s hard to see them until you’re well on your way to addict/zombie status. breaking away is tricky unless you go full-on detox because one more taste of the ‘sugar high’ gets you in the cycle again…

interesting way to approach people vibes generally though. hadn’t got as far as classifying. not enough virgo in me to go all Psyche-and-the-seeds on peeps..

Genius Myst. A great analogy. So one could then align terms that describe perfectly how you feel with that person.
Like, hey Sugar, I’m diabetic so this just isn’t going to work, bye.
One thing to be careful of though is of course projection. By acting all doughy and carb like you could create digestive gas bloating in the other person.
