Medical astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with
the possible and actual health and diseases of the client. Usually, people come
to the astrologer in times of great life changes, such as:
Should I change my job?
When will I come into my inheritance?
Should I marry him/her? etc
To the medical astrologer, however, people come in the
progressed stages of the illness, often after some kind of surgery has already
taken place, along with a rich history of dealing with doctors. The usual
questions for the medical astrologer are:
Should I go for surgery?
Does it have to be a surgery?
When should the surgery take place?
Why don't we have children?
Do I have cancer?
Will my cancer come to pass this year? etc
If the events in the history of illness coincide with
certain astrological transits and configurations, we can find the astrological reason
for illness, give the prognosis for the course and duration of the illness, and
decide upon a therapy needed and so on. The opposite situation often takes
place as well: the client comes for the usual astrological session, but the astrologer
sees in the horoscope a danger long before the illness has manifested and
A great deal of expectations is attached to the advice the
medical astrologer gives. Will there be a surgery or not, to go for chemotherapy
or not, for a radiology therapy or not...
"On Tuesday, I have a radiology therapy appointment,
should I go?"
"The doctor recommended taking my bladder away to stop
the cancer from spreading, should I do that or not?"
Medical astrology is the cruelest branch of astrology. If
you cannot bear meeting with tough, terminal pathologies, if you do not want to
take lethal responsibility for the consequences of you advice -- you better
don't do it. If you are not a medical doctor by profession, you will have to
prepare well and read literature, consult medical doctors, gather information
from the Internet, take part in forums, groups, membership sites etc.
The problems of curing are drastically different to what
astrologers usually do during the reading. In an ideal world, astrologers
advise and clients change their behavior, in order to spend the surplus energy
the planets and stars send them. Medical astrologer may be more concrete and
suggest wearing certain crystals, colours, aromatherapy, flower remedies and so
on. It is best that the professions of medical astrologer and medical doctor do
not mix. Ideally, medical astrologer does not cure and the client is not the
patient, unless the medical astrologer is medical doctor as well, or eventually,
a qualified homeopath. Neither should medical astrologer be a healer: he or she
should only give a highly qualified prognosis of malefic influences that have
already manifested as a disease and will -- unless nothing is undertaken --
continue to manifest thus, probably with heavier consequences as the time
Medical astrologer reaches out for all astrological
techniques and methods from which something can be deduced about the nature of
illness. He or she must be, above all, a competent astrologer, must command a
wide array of astrological techniques and use them for the benefit of the
client and their health. Since he or she gives advice about healing, but cannot
heal on his own, in an ideal world, he or she should be connected to doctors
and healers, should know their natal charts and through synastry decide whom
the patient should see next. However, for practical reasons, it is best that
the client finds his or her own doctors and healers to go after visiting the
astrologer, otherwise, in case something goes wrong (and with ill people it
always will), the astrologer can be accused of having a deal with the health
practitioner that he has sent the client to.
From the chart, it is possible to decide upon the kind of
therapy, such as homeopathy, Bach flower remedies, vibropathy, massage,
classical medicine, attending spas, aromatherapy, crystal healing, Su Jok, etc.
