Forecasting Health and Disease from the Horoscope of a native

Vedic Astrology is a great tool, wherein an experienced and learned Astrologer can see what disease the native is suffering from or is likely to suffer from. The Astrologer need not be a medical expert or for that matter he may not be able to name the disease in particular. But the Astrologer can certainly pin point what system or organ of the human body is venerable or is likely to be affected seriously.

The house of Disease 

The 6th house is mentioned as the house of disease, sickness etc. besides other negative happenings and adversities in the native’s life.

This is not all. One must check the 6th house from MOON, SUN and also from the house where the Maha Dasha Lord is posited from.

The next step is to analyze the strength and position of the lord of the 6th house vis-à-vis the Lord of Ascendant. Generally, if the Ascendant and Lagna lord are stronger than the lord of 6th house then the native will pull through and recover from the illness – should there be any.

Then it is necessary to see the planets posited in the 6th house and also the nature and humor of planets aspecting the 6th house.

Also for any native, the 6th house is supposed to represent the stomach region comprising of abdomen, intestines, navel and kidneys.

Which other houses and planets should be studied in Medical Astrology 

Each planet, house, zodiac sign and aspect besides the Nakshatras (constellation) has some hidden message about the health or ill-health of the native.
