Medical Astrology

Medical Astrology

Medical Astrology is the branch of the Astrology that deals with Health and Longevity issues. Each sign and each planet are associated with a number of possible diseases. So it may be said that the native may be affected by such disease or diseases. In my opinion the function of the astrologer ends with saying that the particular part of the body will be sensitive to acute or chronic disease. Only the medical doctor alone is competent authority to name the disease.

The 6th house denotes the sickness, 8th house surgery, death, and 12th house hospitalization. Disease is indicated by 6, danger by 8, and defect by 12. If the sub lord of 12th cusp is in 6, the house of disease, and if the sub lord is in the constellation of the planet occupying or owning 6 or 8 or 12 it is definite that one will have the defect from the time when the significators conjointly operate. If the sub lord of the ascendant is in the constellation of the significator of 6 or 8 or 12 then one suffers from disease or danger or hospitalization. The following houses represent health issues in the astrology chart:

For cure, consider the 1st, 5th, and 11th. 1st – health, 5th is 12th to the 6th or absence of sickness, 11th is 12th to 12 – or absence of bedridden sickness. Whenever one suffers from any disease, one will be running the period of the planet connected with 6th house. He can expect cure during the sub period of the planet connected with ascendant or 5th house or 11th house. A Virgo born will be sick when they run the period of a planet in Scorpio, in Saturn star, and sun sub.
