In the same way that human conception shows a seasonal rhythm, so does our vulnerability to diseases. It seems preposterous that the month you are born can affect your future health. But how long you live, adult height, and how likely you are to develop a range of diseases, including devastating conditions such as schizophrenia, all turn out to be linked with the month of birth.
In some cases, traditional medical astrology was wrong: the moon does not cause mental disorders, for instance. But at the same time, astrology was right: those born in the winter season, when the moon has its longest reign in the skies, are more likely to suffer from mental disorders like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Modern science is catching up.
“Disorders like depression, schizophrenia, or autism—developmental disorders—are linked to the circadian clock. The clock is hard-wired to other important areas of the brain that play major roles in how those disorders manifest.”
Considering the season of birth, you could have a higher or lower probability for: multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, personality disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorder, allergies, and others. Furthermore, the season of your birth affects how long you live.
