Medical Astrology is that branch of Astrology dealing with Health. The 12 Signs of the Zodiac are linked to the Twelve Limbs of the body.      The   Ascendant rules the Head and the 12th House, the Feet. Medical Astrology,  if incorporated in Astrology Software, can be of immense help in relieving patients' of their misery. 




The  Law of  Correspondences of  Classical  Philosophy  has   another term " The   Doctrine  of Signatures". This doctrine states that objects - animate and inanimate - are governed by planets and Classical Astrology has taken this concept beyond " The Law of Cause and Effect " and has defined it as Archetypal or Psychological.


Reflections of the intrinsic  qualities  of the  planets can be seen in    people,  plants,  animals  & minerals. All that we see, touch, consume &  harvest has a correspondence. By knowing our own planetary  signature,  we can  consume  those  materials  which  correspond  to  our     planetary signature and thus a healthy balance can be maintained. ( In my horoscope, Jupiter is posited in Cancer and hence powerful in positional as well as directional strength.    If I am afflicted by any sort of disease, the escape route is the Jupiterian Way -  viz  consuming  more  vegetables   and fruits, as he rules fruits and vegetables.  If I do that, I will be implementing what the Great  Seers said long ago " Naturopathic food is medicine and medicine is food " )! Since the Zodiacal Signs represent the   Five Elements ( Ether , Fire, Air, Earth & Water ),  the ancient astrological savants  assigned  everything  in  the  Universe  to a planetary  ruler,     and considered all as the manifestation of the Elemental Five and their respective qualities - hot and dry, cold and dry, hot and humid , cold and humid. Jupiter rules "Kapha"  and  the   Sun "Pitta' ( the three humors of Ayurveda ). These elements were understood in a physical & metaphysical sense, as per the principle " As Above, So Below ".  Many  body  constitutions  are  defined    in Ayurveda. The Phlegmatic ( predominance of Kapha), the Bilious ( preponderance of Pitta )  & the Windy ( predominance of Vata ). There are 4 types of Body Constitution in Western Holistic Medicine - Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Choleric and Melancholic. Medical Astrology here becomes Ayurvedic Astrology, analysing the human body made of Vata, Pitta and Kapha and the seven gross tissue elements, all ruled by the Nine Revolving Heavens. 



Ayurvedic Therapy


The Seven Planets correspond to the Three humours ( Doshas ) in Ayurveda



In the Ayurvedic Model, the Seven Revolving Heavens are classified thus ( Vatam Pittayutha Karothi Dinakrith)


Jupiter  Kapha
Sun  Pitta
Moon  Vata & Kapha
Mars  Pitta
Mercury  Pitta, Vata & Kapha
Venus  Vata & Kapha
Saturn  Vata

The seven planets correspond to the Seven Gross Tissue- elements ( dhatus) thus



Jupiter  Fat
Saturn  Veins
Mars  Bone Marrow
Sun  Bones
Moon  Blood
Mercury  Skin
Venus Seminal Energy


By analysing the horoscope, the astrologer can discern the badly placed planet   and     the corresponding Dhatu or gross tissue element which has caused the problem and can prescribe Ayurvedic remedial measures ( " Dushthithasyadi Dhatustho Rogeenam Roga Eeryatham " )

Medical Astrology's perspective about the 12 Houses of the Zodiac         
House  Organ 
Ist House              Head
2nd House Face
Third House   Throat
Fourth House Heart
Fifth House  Place beneath the heart
Sixth House        Stomach
Seventh House  Generative Organ
Eighth House  Upper Thigh
Ninth House   Thigh
Tenth House Knee
Eleventh House         Calf
Twelfth House     Feet






If in the Astrology Chart,  the 6 House is afflicted, there can be digestive tract disorders. Natural malefics in the 6 H   may create hyperacidity and gas trouble.  Affliction either to the 7th house means disorders of  the digestive tract, hyperacidity and gas trouble ( Papa Saptamagah Tadodara Ruja ).  The  same holds good for the 6 H ( Papa Shashtagatha Tadodararuja ). If the 6 H or the 7 H is   afflicted, one should be very careful about the body's acidity level. The body's PH value should be kept   at 7. Anything less than 7 is dangerous. The 80% alkaline nature of the body should be kept up   & acidity should not be above 20%. The best foods to be taken are Vedic Foods, which are low acidity, low cholesterol diet.The Acidity- Alkalinity ratio should be kept at 80% -20%. That ratio can be maintained if you consume 100 grams fruits and 300 grams vegetables daily and   avoid non-natural food. Natural foods are alkaline and non-veg basically acidic.   From experience, it can be discerned that  not only  malefic planets  bring in problems  from  enemies,  but    also problems to the stomach ( Pape Shashtopagathe Vrina Bhayaschora Satru Peeda Cha ).


If the 12 H is afflicted by malefic planets, there can be affliction to the feet. We have seen many a patient suffering from 12 H affliction and which manifests as problems on the feet. One should beware of hidden enemies as well !




Similarly, 4 H affliction means trouble to the Heart. I knew one patient with heart problem who had the North Node in the Fourth. He had a heart surgery. The North Node in the Heart region in the horoscope had effectuated this problem.


There are some astrologers who take this from the Horoscope of the Cosmic Man, that is from His  Ascendant   Aries. This method also yields results but from our experience, we follow the dictum of  Natal   Astrology that it is the  Ascendant  of the  native which is the head and   the Descendant the stomach region. I know many an astrologer who follow this  from Aries Asc &      if a malefic is posited in Virgo, in the  6 H of the  Kalapurusha ( Cosmic Man ),  he      predicts stomach problems for the native. ( Kalanarasya Avayavath Purushanam Kalpayeth ).   Or if a malefic is posited in Taurus, he predicts wounds on the face for the native.


Affliction to any house indicates affliction to the corresponding part of the body. North Node -      or any other malefic - in the Sixth is indicative of stomach trouble & ulceration. Fourth house affliction means that the heart is afflicted and first house affliction means that the head is afflicted. ( Pape Lagnagathe Parajaya Bhaya Siroruja



The planets correspond to the different systems of Man thus


Sun The Bone System 
Moon The Circulatory System
Mars  The Muscular System 
Mercury The Veins 
Venus  The Reproductive System 
Jupiter  The Digestive System 
Saturn  The Excretory System 



From experience,  Vedic Medical Astrology  is found to  be very  accurate. In   my father's horoscope, he had a specific yoga for Arthritis with Jupiter in Libra Asc and Saturn in Aries. My mother has Saturn in the 12 H; she has a problem in the leg. My co-brother has Mars in the 12 H; he is suffering from some nerve problem on the feet. I personally have the  North Node in the 6 H and I have hyperacidity and gas trouble ( Papa Shashtagatha Tadodararuja ) !


It is time Astrology Vedic programs incorporated Medical Astrology ! Three sorts of formulae are given in the Anushtana Paddhati, dealing with Medical Astrology. Roga Sutra is the formula for disease, Mrityu Sutra is the formula for Death and Jeeva Sutra for escaping from disease !  Vedic astrologers  who study vedic horoscopes should incorporate the Prasna Anushtana Paddhati by Puliyoor to hone up their astro skills !
