Signs represent the twelve large systems in the body of man, starting with Aries which represents the head, all through the sign of Pisces, ruling the feet. The signs that contain the planets, either by birth or through progressed horoscopes, will stand out, or will most probably be the sources of illness. For each sign a special tissue salt exists; these are the building materials for human body, the substances through the combination of which tissues, organs, systems of organs, and finally the entire body are built. Using these salts on their own or by combining them in material or homeopathic doses, one's health can be much improved.
Quite similarly, for each sign a special type of food is best. Medical astrologer will be qualified to give advice about food, and this will also improve the client's health in numerous ways. Using the theory of doctrines, i.e. finding the similarities between the zodiac, body, and herbs, it is also possible to connect signs with herbs and prescribe them to help the patient.
Each sign has 30 degrees, and each of these 360 degrees is connected to one part of the body. The planet on that degree is a predisposition for an illness -- the degree tells us which part of the body is in question, while the planet will show what kind of disease it will be. In a similar manner, it is possible to connect the midpoints and the degrees.
The Planets, Asteroids, and the Uranian Planets in Medical Astrology
The planets are sources of energy in the horoscope, and each is unique. For instance, the energy of Mars is fire-like; he flames up the fires in the body (resulting in high temperature) and cleanses it thus. Neptune stands for bacteria that are known to the medicine, while Pluto is for the unknown bacteria, and so on. The asteroids, the large ones in particular, such as Ceres, Juno and others, behave in a similar way. In medical astrology, the Uranian planets can also be used. There are eight "Uranian" planets which have no astronomical data, but the influence of which can be felt quite strongly in the chart. Some of these planets have strong medical connotations, so using them can increase the credibility of medical astrology analysis up to 90% of success.
Out of the twelve houses in the usual astrology, five are more significant that the others:
First house -- the physical body,
Sixth house -- diseases,
Eighth house -- support from others, sex, death, karma, terminal states, cancer,
Twelfth house -- isolation, hospitals and monasteries, psychic problems, auto-immunity.
However, every house has its own special meaning in medical astrology:
No. 1 -- face, consciousness, brain tumors, brain insults, etc
No. 2 -- blood, electrolytes, hormones, food intake, hypophysis, diabetes.
No. 3 -- the lungs, speech problems,
No. 4 -- producing food for others, mother, milk; genetics, inheritance,
No. 5 -- heart, infarction of myocardium,
No. 6 -- diseases, personal hygiene, meals, day to day habits,
No. 7 -- death through brain problems, balance of the body, spine,
No. 8 -- Expelling of the processed foods, hypophysis, adrenal cortex, kidneys,
No. 9 -- the upper part of brain, cerebral hemisphere, Jupiter rules over the left, Neptune rules over the right hemisphere;
No. 10 -- metabolism,
No. 11 -- circulation, hemorrhagia,
No. 12 -- autoimmune diseases, thymus, immunity in general, liver.
The ruler of the house is the main indicator of the events related to the house, while the planets in the house are not so important. For instance, to see what kinds of illnesses one can have, take a look at the sixth house and its ruler, its position, aspects and transits. Only after the ruler remained under pressure for a long time, we could be allowed to start predicting the existence of a disease.
