Natal placements that may make a person struggle to gain weight?
I´ve always been underweight. I didn´t reach a healthy weight even when I tried eating 2,000-2,500 calories per day everyday for 6 weeks (my maintenance number is 1,300 calories.)

Biologically I think it was because my body was rejecting the extra calories instead of using them - I was using the bathroom much more than a normal person. I was wondering if there may be any astrological indicators.

I´m unsure about your placements and natal aspects contributing other than the fact that my underweight sister is also a Libra in 2nd house. But as far as transits go you have had Pluto in your 6th for quite a number of years. Here´s something I read about Pluto transiting the 6th a while back.

"It is a good time for regenerative therapies, whether physical or psychological. If you follow a good physical regime, you can now regenerate your body, even if you have not paid attention to it in recent years. It is important to take care of your diet. If Pluto makes difficult aspects, you may have health problem."

You also have Pluto conjuncting Neptune transit going on right now, which also touches on health.

"Your search for spiritual answers may be prompted by a health issue, or may result in a period of low energy as a result of poor health. Any rapid evolution is spiritual development of the soul will often cause a health imbalance as your physical body struggles to catch up."

Also with Saturn in your 6th right now, I´m sure this could affect your ability to put on weight with it being an area you already struggle.
I haven´t looked yet but maybe you´ve also been dealing with Saturn transits that have intensified the effects of physical health with Saturn transiting your 6th house.

One question though, do you normally eat 1300 calories a day other than when you´re trying to gain weight? I know every body is different but for me 1300 calories is the amount I need to eat to LOSE weight and around 1800-2000 will maintain my weight.

I typically eat around 1,300 calories, yes. It´s my maintenance # because I´m 5´0 and 87 pounds. (I reached 94 when I was eating 2,000-2,500 calories daily, but that´s still a few pounds underweight.)

Well, first I´d say check your thyroid for hormonal imbalances, uderactive or overactive thyroid.

Astrologically, it´s Saturn related.

Saturn opposite your chart ruler Sun in 2nd house, related to food intake.

I´ve gotten tested for thyroid imbalances multiple times and it´s all clear.

Thank you for your answer!

I also find people with Mars in fire signs generally tend to have faster metabolisms. I know a few of them like this, can eat a lot and not gain much, but would have to study more charts to be sure.

You are only 24 years old...

Wait until you get around 30... and Jupiter hits your ascendant... and your metabolism slows down... and you become less active...

You´ll be wishing to have your Skinny body back...

Enjoy it while it lasts....

Nicki Minaj had an unbelievable attractive body...

She still does... but when Jupiter hit her ascendant... she ended up gaining weight uncontrollably...

I don´t think my situation is comparable to the average person´s because yes, the average person sheds weight more easily when younger than when older, but they (especially women) still usually have to TRY to lose weight, meanwhile I have to try to GAIN weight. The vast majority of young people have dieted, for example - I haven´t (unless you count "deliberately eating way too many calories to try to become a normal weight, but failing" as a diet).

My cousin told me my aunt also had this issue and she had to eat lard to try to gain weight, and that she started gaining weight more easily when she hit menopause (50+).

She came from this and went to the previous Picture....

That´s what Jupiter can do when it hits your ascendant...

Well Shit... imgbb website is moving too slow... so I guess I´ll just post a video instead.

I wonder how much she exercised and dieted to have that body. Meanwhile I sit on my ass and even if I eat 2,000-2,500 calories I can´t reach a healthy weight.

Also, about her weight gain. Didn´t she have a baby?

All I´m saying is enjoy it while it lasts...


I have a vegan friend who is skinny and complains about not gaining weight... and cannot gain weight...

I told her she´s crazy for trying to gain weight... she´s already perfect as is...

And she refuses to dress around her nice body... to show her figure


I´m like look... when you get older you´re gonna regret not taking advantage of her looks and ect...

She dresses down because she doesn´t want men looking at her... sexually.

I said well one day you might be HUGE as a pig and want to be attractive and find a nice guy but can´t... because you lost your looks...


Use it before you lose it.... but she always says noooo...


But she also refuses to go shopping with me because I´m Brutally honest...

Yes, she had a baby. But she gained the weight way before she got pregnant.

Imagine being a vegan and wondering why you can´t gain weight

Anyway there´s a difference between being on the slim side of healthy & being underweight (like me)

Mmm the 2nd house is analog to Taurus that has to do with the body itself (just like it has to do with the earth itself). It´s the house of matter.
Also the house of earnings. Seems that is the house of weight gain too.

I, like you, have 2nd house in Virgo (productivity, optimized resources consumption, etc) and expands to Libra (air sign, low weight). I can eat all the day and almost not gain weight hah. To gain muscle I have to work out almost every day, and it is hard to mantain if I stop my routine too much weeks. Weight gainers, creatine, and stuff like that is just a loss of time and money for me, it´s much better to do my military routine of exercises and eat like a beast (only God knows how much calories) high protein diet hehe, that works much better. :36:

Sorry, not vegan. I confuse vegetarian with vegan.

She simply doesn´t eat meat.... everything else she eats...

If she has to eat meat, she will eat fish...

That´s all...

She eats eggs and ect... I think... she just has a thing about animal cruelty ir something...

I dont know...


Regardless, my point is that one day your metabolism will slow down... enjoy being skinny while it lasts...

I would enjoy not being able to get fat...

Imagine being a fat-ass tub of lard that can´t get off the sofa to save thier lives... in case of a fire...

As long as you feel healthy and not tired all the time and your bones aren´t cracking when you are walking...

I would worry about other things...

Now THIS is an interesting question.

I tend to look at these things psychologically. I look for conflicts in the chart. In your case, SN is conjunct Saturn in Aries, 8th, and NN is conjunct Sun in Libra, 2nd. So, my guess is that this is part of it. This is a Self-Other issue. You are probably fiercely independent, while also, focused on improving relationships. I bet Aries-SN is stronger - but - maybe not. Sun is your chart ruler with the Leo rising. But regardless, there is stress there.

Chiron in Libra in the 3rd also shows stress in the relationship department. Libra is about an energy exchange. Aries doesn´t do energy exchange very well - it wants to follow its own inner impulses. With libra, you extend out to others, feel their energy, and then assimilate what you want and like for yourself. It´s a way to build a new identity. This mirrors or is like, eating food and assimilating it into yourself - nnourishment. Libra and Sag are the two signs that do this process.

Libra rules the stomach and Virgo rules the intestines. Mercury is in Virgo.

Venus on your asc is drawing people to you - but Mars in the 12th is about letting go. You can draw people to you, but do you do the Libra energy exchange and do you let go of what you want to change and assimilate the new?

the 2nd house is all about your self-value and self-concept. Mercury is there thinking about that. Are you self-critical with Virgo being there? Does it stop the Libra energy exchange?

Saturn is the really strong adversary here. It limits, it is highly focused on Aries independence. It could make it very difficult for you to properly do your Libra, even if your Sun is there.

Do you see a correlation between these two - assimilating food and assimilating new qualities from others?

Another thought - anorexia is an "anger" issue. I´m not saying you have anorexia, but if you have some unconscious anger - from your past life in Aries - this may be why you can´t gain weight. Your Mars in 12th is trying to help you release it.

I got curious about the correlation between Jupiter on the ascendant and weight gain. So I looked back, and it looks like the first time Jupiter hit my ascendant is likely the time I developed a thyroid issue and lost my metabolic powers. Then it hit my ascendant again when I was pregnant with my first child and gained 60 pounds :4: I lost it so easily though.
