Medical Astrology is an ancient applied branch of astrology, based on the association of various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs with the nature of the Sun, moon, planets, and the 12 astrological signs. This association of zodiac signs with the parts of the body from head ( Aries) to toes ( Pisces) is believed by both educated elite and average people by centuries.
Medical astrology is a science that provides insight into a person’s physical and mental strengths and weaknesses, leading to susceptibility to certain illnesses.
Every illness has a physical and medical component. The horoscope reveals a person’s emotional and mental pattern, which makes him prone to a certain illness.
Very few people are aware of the fact that Hippocrates, The father of medicine, was also a believer in astrology. He said, “He who practices medicine without the benefit of stars and planets is a fool”. This quote indicates the antiquity of science as well.
Medical astrology shows the influence of astrology on your different body parts. Each sign of the zodiac influences certain parts of your body that may be prone to certain kinds of illness. The position of debilitated planets in a zodiac in a particular house in the horoscope leads to an illness.
Knowing which disease may affect you depending on your sun sign and ruling planet medical astrologer may help in preparing you for the worst in advance.
For example, since the 1st zodiac sign, Aries rules the head, the presence of certain planets in the 1st house of a person with Aries ascendant will lead to migraine and headaches.
