Medical astrology can help identify the health status of our physical body. 

First, we will analyse the effects of planets on our bodies. Later, we will see the cause-and-effect relationship and remedial measures. 

effects of planets on our bodies

The main houses indicating diseases and misfortunes are the sixth, 8th and 12th houses. 

The sixth house is the main house to be analysed. Tt shows chronic diseases. Diseases caused by a person’s own carelessness such as lifestyle diseases etc.

So, the sixth house is the primary indicator of the presence of illnesses. 

But the reality is depending on the afflictions, every house shows what body part of the native can get affected. 

For example, Afflictions like Rahu Or Ketu with malefic planets in the second house can show diseases of the mouth, especially if Mars is present in the second house, it can show mouth ulcers. 

If Rahu is present in the fourth house, it shows heart trouble. 

Mars in ascendant can show hypertension. Jupiter in the sixth house afflicted can show diabetes or any expanding kind of disease. 

Sun, Moon, Ascendant lord, the lord of the sixth house, planets in the sixth house, and planets conjunct with the sixth lord are the influencers of different health-related conditions.

The eighth house is a house of accidents as well as death. 

As per the Kaal purush concept, the eighth house is also the genital part. So afflictions of the eighth house can be related to reproductive issues as well. 

The 12th house can show hidden diseases, as well as psychosomatic diseases or stress-related diseases. 12 the house is hidden or behind house counted from ascendant. Ascendant is our body, and afflictions of the 12th house show hidden diseases manifesting. It depends on the dashas of the planets in affliction.

nature of planets

Mars: Mars is the prime karaka of surgeries, accidents, infections, fevers, as well as weapon-related wounds and cuts, bruises etc. 

Sun and moon afflictions can cause eye-related issues ( P. S – the second house is the right eye, the 12th house is the left eye) 

  • Saturn – causes arthritis, joint pain, lingering diseases, Malnourishment etc.
  • Mercury – causes nervousness and speech-related issues. Skin disorders. 
  • Jupiter – expanding kinds of diseases, sugar-related issues. 

Venus: Seminal and reproductive issues, as well as skin-related conditions. 

  • Rahu & Ketu – These diseases cannot be diagnosed in most cases. They are what people call mysterious diseases. As they are Chhaya Graha and don’t have a physical presence, diseases caused by them are also elusive and difficult to diagnose. They cause Undiagnosable diseases, or these diseases get misdiagnosed.

The famous psychologist Carl Jung once said, “We have the qualities of the season we are born in.”

 Of course, we have the qualities of our environment. Even epigenetics proves that we are greatly impacted by our environment, to the point that even the expression of genes can change due to this factor.

So, our birth chart can show us at the moment or season of our birth what kind of afflictions may affect the native. Or what kind of blueprint we are carrying and what are the possible weak points of our system. 

I have seen in my consultations people having reproductive issues because of sixth or eighth-house Ketu placements. I saw Rahu in eighth, causing reproductive/ ovary issues. One client had stomach issues caused/indicated by Rahu in the fifth house. When The Kaal purush concept is applied to the human body, I always see matching results with the imbalance of clients. 

There are three doshas in Ayurveda: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

These are just like the three tendencies of the mind, which are sattva, rajas, and tamas. 

These three make up our bodies. And an imbalance of one can affect the other.

In fact, it is their imbalance of them that triggers the disease. 

Through our horoscope, we can identify which dosha is causing an imbalance. And we can identify which planet in which house is causing the disease.

Every house is connected with a certain body part, according to Kaal purush. Kaal purush is the cosmic man. And we are a reflection of the universe. And our chart is a reflection of the state of the universe at the moment of our birth, as well as a blueprint of our physical body.

The remedial measures have to be decided based on an analysis of the birth chart as the whole chart condition has to be properly analysed before deciding the cure. 

In simple words, wearing metals to pacify a planet, taking ayurvedic elements of the related planet, and consuming tridosha-balancing foods can help remedy most of the diseases caused by planets. (or rather triggered by, as some illnesses seeds lie in karmic past, they are like destined events from akashic records to balance karma: nonetheless, remedial measures can always help.) Karmic diseases have to be seen through conjunctions of Rahu and Ketu with other planets. 

A strong 11th house can help overcome diseases as the 11th house is the bhavat bhavam of the 12th house. 12th counted from the 12th house shows ” Dissolution of losses and diseases.” And the 11th house is the 6th from the sixth house as well.

A strong planet in the 11th house is like a natural remedy given by the universe as a blessing. 

Strengthening the ascendant lord is an all-round good remedy.
