Health Predictions in Vedic Astrology

Medical astrology has been known for many years to give accurate health predictions; hence it is not a new area under Vedic astrology. It has been a part of it for centuries and used by many sages.

These sages used Vedic astrology techniques to help people. As a result, they could predict a wide variety of diseases. Among these were mental depression, visual impairment, hearing impairment and diabetes.

The facts and figures obtained from calculations help us predict the inherent health problem in any horoscope. For example, suppose a patient is suffering from chronic health problems. In that case, his Lagna plays a major role in diagnosing and resolving the problems.

We can analyze the health by looking at the placement of the planets in the 6th, 8th and 12th house of the birth chart. There are other divisional charts to see the health condition too. For example, suppose the ascendant lord is afflicted in the first and eleventh house. Then, in this situation, we can expect bad results. Medical science gives important information about the overall health of a person.

The placement of the 6th lord shows the weakest point in our body. Therefore, the placement, aspect and conjunction of the 6th lord are very important in identifying the medical issue.

The weak points in the body can be indicated through the axis of Rahu Ketu. Whichever planets and houses come in the Rahu Ketu axis will have some weaknesses. The body parts indicated by these houses and planets will have some weaknesses.

Astrology can say about the beauty and the appearance of the person. However, it can not only say about the physical issues but also about emotional issues. Nowadays, researchers are connecting astrology through the path of psychology, and many psychologists are learning this to understand mental health.

The Moon is the indicator of the mind, so looking at the condition of the Moon, we can understand how peaceful the person is. However, if the Moon is conjuncting with any complex planet, the native will face emotional issues. Certain conditions in the horoscope show depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, and other mental diseases.

Fatal diseases also can be identified through astrology. Still, there are no superficial remedies for medical issues. Medical issues always need remedies from licensed doctors.
