Medical Astrology is a fascinating, timeless subject of antiquity that has unfortunately lost its value in the wake of chemical (allopathic) medicine. While almost everyone knows his or her astrological Sun sign from their month and date of birth, they are not generally familiar with the personal characteristics associated with it, dietary and hygienic measures to be advised, and even preventative measures it provides to preserve, regain, or maintain one’s health. Historically, the two oldest sciences of man’s history are astrology and herbalism. In a rare book uncovered from the English archives on medical astrology, it was stated that as late as the 1700’s, those who entered the profession as “doctor of medicine”, either in England or other European countries, were obliged to pass an astrological examination. And if the candidate was found deficient in the knowledge of medical astrology, the individual was deemed unfit to practice medicine!
The usefulness of medical astrology, today, does not have to be restricted to doctors of medicine. Thanks to computers and the science of astronomy, those who turn their interest into more understanding and the application of medical astrology will gain some truly unique insights about themselves and others.
The purpose of medical astrology is to find and prevent conditions and disorders. Just as a doctor will look at a blood chemistry report to gain an insight to diagnosis, so the medical astrologer looks at a birth or nativity map (horoscope) to gain an insight as well. The horoscope does not diagnose, rather it provides an insight into the constitution of the native, whether strong or weak, the healing potential, the metabolism whether normal, fast or sluggish, and pathological tendencies. It provides general insights which are then modified by the native’s heredity, early childhood, and environmental factors (weather, climate, exposure to radiation, toxic waste, trauma, accidents, etc.). It also provides an insight into the general psychology of the native and if psychosomatic illness could be present. Further, based on Hindu and Tibetan philosophy, the horoscope can also show past life potentials and whether past events have been carried over into this life.
What are the medical differences between zodiac signs and houses?
The signs represent where the disease potential is present by so-called “anatomical rulerships” of the body’s organs and tissue systems. The houses represent conditions that come from the outside environment, or how certain illnesses develop.
