Anorexia and Birth Month

Interesting study by Dr. John Eagles finds a relationship between birth of anorexic women and their birth month. Don't have the actual figures for the study but anorexics born in Scotland between 1965 and 1997 were most likely to be born between March and June. One article I read said that March and June themselves were the most common months which hooks up with the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. The Doctor uses the prenatal theory that some sort of Winter infection affects babies while still in the womb, the same sort of thing that is thought to maybe cause schizophrenia.

Study: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/eat.1069/abstract

Babies born in Scotland are certainly born into a very dark climate and I don't know if these figures would be similar for Californians since most of the anorexics I've known were Scorpios and Sagittarians. I definitely equate the illness with Pluto because it is associated with control and denial and invisibility and manipulation. As I've said before I struggled with this problem for years (you're never really over it).

A couple of years ago I went to a panel discussion of people who billed themselves as experts in the field. It was sad. These people were running a clinic on the subject and were telling people that they didn't know a thing about the disease. After sitting there for the 1 1/2 hours it was really easy to see why. There were no anorexics on the panel. Two fat psychotherapists were there. One of the psychotherapists had lost her weight and was talking about psychology of being overweight. The leading psychologist was rotund and very merry, just the type of woman who make an anorexic not want to eat for the next 30 years, and this psych. was complaining about how the anorexics have such dismal, pale personalities. A male psychiatrist was there saying that the field has recovered virtually no information about the illness due to lack of funding, very Plutonian. And an actual anorexics' parents were there talking about how they learned to deal with their daughter's manipulation games. The actual anorexic was not there. As a matter of fact, nobody had anything good to say about anorexics, sort of Plutonian? Plutonians don't really talk a lot, don't draw a lot of attention to themselves.

I was wholeheartedly pissed off already. Before the talk I was sitting on a bench next to a glum fat woman who was smoking her cigarette. Another happy fat woman came over for meet n'greet and asked us why we were there. The glum fat woman sitting next to me said that she was a social worker and had to deal with the pathetic adults who grow out of anorexia and are hopeless in treatment. The happy fat woman then asked me why I was there. I admit I should have made up a lie, but, well, Cap Moon-Gemini Rising, set it direct, I said I was one of the pathetic poor souls the woman sitting next to me has to deal with all day. Hehehe, she stubbed out her smoke, didn't apologize, just stood up and walked away. So did the happy fat woman. Nobody expected an anorexic to show up for the event!!! At any rate, this whole situation made me realize how Plutonian anorexia is. People are fascinated by the disease, fat women especially. Truth is, anorexics become anorexic because they are trying to make themselves invisible and to have no needs. Two of my friends tried to compete with my weight loss but their parents intervened immediately when they started losing weight. My parents were getting divorced, going through bankruptcies, dating like rabbits, I couldn't ask for anything. I won't even go into what happened once my Mother caught on that I had a problem.

So, anyway, it would be interesting if Dr. John would re-do the figures using Californians. Between 1965 and 1997 Pluto was basically moving from mid-Virgo to early Sagittarius. Most of the subjects in the study would have had Pluto in either Libra or Scorpio.

Scorpio is Pluto's sign so it would figure that there would be a lot of anorexics born during those years.

Pluto in Libra would be square to the Solstice and Equinox Suns so there would be a lot of Sun-Pluto square kids born during those years.

Since Pluto is related to Viruses and things underground perhaps there really is a pre-natal illness involved as well. Pluto also rules research so probably if a little funding were put in that direction a whole lot of answers would pop up pretty quickly. And, of course, it wouldn't hurt to keep the fat women away from the anorexia clinics. Fat girls have enough of their own poo to work on. And, if you don't have enough common sense to realize that girls who are living off of 900 calories a day and 4 hours of exercise are going to be a little slow on the draw mentally, then you really need to go find another job anyway.
