What Is Medical Astrology?

Your report utilizes the basics of medical astrology-one of the earliest forms of astrolMedical astrology offers you a time-tested method to recognize and improve defiin your body. It is the branch of astrology that deals with the planetary causes of disease. It has its origins in ancient astrology and was used by Hippocrates (b. 460 BC) and by most doctors until the seventeenth century. Medical astrology associates the difparts of the body and the illnesses connected with them with the signs of the zoand their associated planets. There is also a correspondence between the planets and disease in that specific planetary combinations can point to proneness to a specific disease state. As you read chapter 2, "The Signs in Medical Astrology," and chapter 3, "The Planets in Medical Astrology," you will begin to understand the correspondences between the planets, the signs, and health. You will see why medical astrology can be an important adjunct to traditional medicine.

What Medical Astrology Can and Cannot Do

Medical astrology can help you eliminate improbabilities in the chart and hone in on major themes in much the same way as natal astrology. However, medical astrology is more complicated than natal astrology. First of all, you need to be a competent medical astrologer to fully interpret a natal chart. Second, by law you cannot diagnose illness unyou are also a medical doctor. And, there are too many variables in a chart for it to be used for diagnosis. But medical astrology can help you eliminate implausibilities in your chart and focus on the vulnerable parts of your body. It also shows your strengths and the ways in which you respond to disease.

         The Signs in Medical Astrology

The signs of the zodiac correspond to the anatomical locations in the body of tissues and organs. Along with the planets, the signs can also describe the physiology (body processes) of an organ or tissue. In many cases there are similarities between a sign in the zodiac and the planet it is associated with. For example, Libra refers to the anatomilocation of the kidneys, and Venus, which is associated with the sign Libra, can dekidney action. Therefore, kidney function in the body can be related to both the sign Libra and the planet associated with it, which is Venus. In another example, Sagitdescribes the anatomical location of the liver in the body, and Jupiter, the planet associated with Sagittarius, can describe liver function in the body.

As you learn more about medical astrology, you will discover that there is a relationbetween the planets and the signs in determining proneness to specific disease states and bodily weaknesses. You will also learn that astrologers associate the planets with a sign or signs. This is called rulership, and in the above example of the association between Venus and Libra, an astrologer would say that the sign Libra is ruled by the planet Venus; or, taking the other example, that the sign Sagittarius is ruled by the planet Jupiter.

The planets and the signs can both have attributes that describe similar actions, such as heat and inflammation for both the planet Mars and the sign Aries. The action of a planet is influenced by the sign it tenants while at the same time influencing the sign itTo illustrate, suppose you have Mars in Cancer in a chart. The action of the planet, Mars, influences the sign, Cancer, in that one could have an acid stomach or be prone to stomach upset when upset or angry. This is because the sign Cancer is the general ruler of the stomach and Mars is a planet promoting acidity as well as being the planet of anger and aggression. But the sign in turn affects the planet's ability to act. Mars loses some of its ability to act when in the sign of Cancer. Any beginning astrology book will state that Mars in Cancer is in its "fall" and is therefore not able to act up to par.

The list that follows gives the general associations of each sign of the zodiac and each sign's actions and reactions to disease. Included are the most recognizable parts of the body for the layperson. Since signs and planets can be involved in more than one funcor location in the body and since a function of a sign can sometimes be seen in its opposite sign, which is called its polarity, the reader may notice some overlapping.
