Medical Astrology: What Is It and
How Does It Work?

When one thinks of astrology, the study of stars and their interpretations into human characters (star signs) come to mind. While medical astrology won't give you an update on your star sign or an indication of what is going to happen in your love life or career, it can help to determine strengths and weaknesses within the human body. Furthermore, medical astrologers can also pinpoint the state of a disease or pick up things like nutritional deficiencies and healthy considerations by simply studying and analyzing your medical astrology chart or natal chart.

Medical astrology all works according to the influence of the sun, the moon, the stars and planets as well as the twelve signs of the zodiac: Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Gemini, Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius. It is basically a code that has been developed to associate specific astrological elements and planets with various regions of the body.

When looking at medical astrology and the star signs, the human body is segmented into twelve levels, each one representing a specific astrological sign or star sign. If you were to look at the body from head to toe, it would be sliced up, with the first sign of the zodiac on top (Aries) and the last sign of the zodiac (Pisces) at the bottom. Each level represents different body regions:

  • The head, brain, face and eyes would be represented by Aries.

  • The neck and throat, as well as the thyroid gland and vocal tract would be represented by Taurus.

  • The shoulders, arms, hands and lungs would be represented by Gemini, as would the nervous system and the brain.

  • The chest and breasts, stomach and alimentary canal would be represented by Cancer.

  • The chest, heart, spine, spinal column and the upper portion of the back would be represented by Leo.

  • The digestive system, together with the intestines, nervous system and spleen would be represented by Virgo.

  • The lumbar region or lower region of the spine would be represented by Libra, as would the kidneys, buttocks and the skin.

  • The reproductive system, together with the sexual organs in both male and female, would be represented by Scorpio. This sign also represents the excretory system and bowels.

  • The hips and thighs as well as the liver and sciatic nerve, which is the longest and widest single nerve in the body, would be represented by Sagittarius.

  • The skeletal system, which includes the joints and the knees, would be represented by Capricorn.

  • The circulatory system as well as the calves and ankles would be represented by Aquarius.

The planets are also associated with certain portions and functions within the body. For example, the Sun represents the heart, spine and general vitality, while Mars represents the muscles, adrenal glands and the sense of smell and taste.

A qualified and competent medical astrologer is able to draw up a natal chart based on the date, month and year of birth, time of birth and place of birth. He would then typically analyze the chart to identify strengths and weaknesses within certain areas of the body. Using the twelve zodiac signs as well as the planets, medical astrologers can also identify the possibility and tendency towards various diseases and their states, as well as pick up nutritional deficiencies.

A session with a medical astrologer would most likely be required by individuals who either have a specific disease, a hereditable condition or for general health and understanding how the influence of astrology can lead to a better quality of life.

Medical astrologers have also been used to help patients determine the exact time of an operation for an optimum and successful outcome.

Although medical astrology can help to identify the workings of an individual's human body, it is always advisable to get a medical consultation before attempting treatment, and medical astrology should merely be used as a guide to good health.
