This organ secretes a dark green liquid called bile into the duodenum. The bile is then spurted into the food, chemically emulsifying the fats and promoting strong peristalsis. Without sufficient bile, fats go undigested, precipitating many serious problems.
Symptoms of a sluggish, partially blocked or stone-ridden gallbladder are a burning sensation in the upper chest, often referred to as heartburn; pain beneath one or both shoulder blades; sharp, cutting pains in the chest cavity, especially around the heart; inability to breathe deeply because of lung-related pain (blamed on pleurisy in the lungs); inability to get breath; and spasmodic pains in the area of the heart, especially from 10 p.m. to midnight (frequently blamed on a heart attack when it is really a gallblad der attack). Other serious complications, such as diverticulitis, diarrhea, constipation, colitis and stomach cramping, can also occur with unwelcomed regularity. Lecithin, one of the ingredients in bile, will help the organ function and also break down the fats that are causing the above problems.
Capricorn also rules the knees. People having their natal Sun in this sign or on the Sixth House cusp will often experience cracking knees upon standing ot bending. Moreover, arthritis will sometimes lodge in the knees, causing stiffening of the joints in latet years.
