Medical astrology signs cover the body from head to toe, heading being Aries, toe being Pisces. What this means is that each individual has a unique medical astrology chart, created by a medical astrologer, based on the individual’s natal chart and where the planets are today. After looking at the natal diagram, medical astrologers tell the individual what types of physical problems or diseases the individual is more likely to experience.
For example, a person with the Sun, Moon, or a particular planet in Aries head is more likely to experience headaches or other problems and diseases connected. It’s a complex system; for that reason, medical astrology predictions must be made on a case by case basis, especially when diagnosing bodily disease. Understanding the cycle of the sun and moon as well as other planets like Saturn and mars will help you understand the way medical astrology works and pre-empt any diseases that may be more likely to come your way.

Medical Astrology Past and Present
Greek astrology (also known as Hellenistic astrology) is the original basis of medical astrology. It then bloomed throughout the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Medical Astrology, back then, was mainstream with doctors of all types of consulting and practising it. To become doctors, they were even required to study it and pass an exam where they had to answer medical astrology questions.
Mainstream medicine has moved away from natural remedies and astrology guided decision making to pharmaceutical and biochemical approaches, though there’s a growing movement of people who seek herbal, natural solutions – from yoga to veganism, to eating certain plants and working with energy healers just some of the ways a person will seek solutions via nature.

Reading Your Natal Chart
Any good astrologer will ask you for your date and time of birth as well as the location where you were born. This is your astrological natal (birth) chart and provides you with a one of a kind, individual reading. When it comes to interpreting your astrology, it is important to understand your star sign and what that brings as a result.
What Does 12 House Health Chart Represent?
This natal chart is divided into twelve equal areas, called houses. Each house stands for a life area, such as relationships, money, family, goals, spirituality, potential disease etc. Each house on the astrology chart features some planets and signs, based on where they’re at the time of your birth.
Your astrologer then looks at where the planets are today to determine what has changed in your life and what’s likely to change in the future. (Click here to learn more about Western astrology).
This refers to the first most part of our physical bodies including hair, skin, head, mind.
This house is in relation to our nails, eyes, teeth, tongue and brain. Injuries, disease or problems related to these various parts are as a result of a weakened second house.
The third house is linked to your bones, hands, bodily growth are just some that fall under the third houses on our astrology health chart.
The fourth house is linked to our heart, chest and major organs. Things like high blood pressure and heart attacks would fall under this astrology house when it comes to diseases or health issues linked to these problems.
The fifth house is linked to our smaller internal organs like the bladder and intestines as well as our internal intelligence and conscience. The period of the fifth house is linked to health restoration and blood-related diseases that can hinder health.
This section of the astrology health diagram refers to our digestive system and kidneys. If you ended up with a digestive system related disease as a reason for this house, it would lead to you falling physically sick. Saturn known as a bad planet is known to lead to a diagnosis related to this house because Saturn is linked to chronic disease.
The seventh house of astrology is connected to the uterus, ovaries and sexual organs that can lead to things like sexual complications and sexually transmitted diseases. The weakening of this house causes many diseases such as venereal diseases and other diseases you would link to sex. Complications with these parts of the body can also lead to other things like fevers and facial and skin diseases.
The eighth house rule is a sector that rules sex. The weakening of this house can lead to other problems like anxiety and mental disease linked to the brain.
In accordance with the ninth house on the astrology chart, the ninth house also known as the house of philosophy relates to mainly your joints and bones. According to medical astrology can also lead to other problems, both mental and physical skin and human body related disease.
The tenth house is closely connected to the ninth house in terms of the parts of the body it relates to. It also includes things like stomach issues, joint pain. Stomach pain can then be linked to other issues that you may associate with other houses within the zodiac house system.
The eleventh house on the medical astrology diagram relates to chronic problems. The majority of the diseases people have are related to this particular part and is one of the telltale signs as an issue linked to this part of the zodiac.
The twelfth and final house of the astrology house system is linked to external factors like hospitalization, money issues and personal relationships. Not directly related to the body, skin or organs themself but one of many existential circumstances that can lead to changes in physical health and mental health-related diseases.
Understanding the connection of the planetary and zodiac houses could help pinpoint a specific disease and may help you to build your life in a way that will prevent ill health.
A Higher Level of Wisdom
Accordingly, a disease can be expected when a planet receives a 90 or 180 degrees (opposition) aspect; when Saturn, Mars, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto are posited in the sixth, the eighth or the twelve houses; or when these planets occupy Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces; or when these planets occupy the ascendant.
These are just some examples of how astrology is applied to medicine and treating disease. Their knowledge of how the sun and the moon as well as other planets like Mars, Jupiter and Venus will ensure that your reading is an accurate one.
