This star can influence individuals in their ability to convert tendencies of power and violence into more rational behavior. There can be a greater ability to love and help others. These violent urges can be converted into the strength one needs for overcoming impossible odds or difficult decisions. This is especially true in dealing with serious illness for the patient, the healer, as well as the immediate family and friends. Zeta Hydrae can offer that courage to confront the karmic issues inherently involved with these difficulties, the understanding of the very nature of disease.
