Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician once said, “A physician without the knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.”
It is an old-age tradition that people having faith in astrology have always considered the position of the sun and planets to better understand their health, personalities, and make predictions about the future.
If we want to live a happy, fit, and prosperous life, we cannot ignore our health. If we are suffering from health issues, it disturbs the whole cycle of life. One cannot study, work, or even earn if one is not healthy.
To sustain in this competitive world we should all focus on our health, especially with the current levels of pollution, workload, duplicate food, pesticides, and junk food habits, we all need an extra bit of care.
Astrology can help you to live a healthy & fit life. As each organ, anatomical structure, and body part is inherently influenced by astrological elements, we can predict certain things through astrology.
2nd, 6th, 8th, and 12th house plays a major role in indicating health issues. If any of them is influenced by malefic planets, then the individual will face health issues. The native will suffer from related medical problems if any planet posited in those houses is weak or debilitated.
The 6th house denotes sickness, 8th house surgery, death, and 12th house hospitalization. If the sub-lord of 12th cusp is in 6, the house of disease, and if the sub-lord is in the constellation of the planet occupying or owning 6 or 8 or 12 it is definite that one will have the defect from the time when the significators conjointly operate. If the sub-lord of the ascendant is in the constellation of the significator of 6 or 8 or 12, then one suffers from disease or danger or hospitalization.

According to Vedic astrology, planets and our birth sign are closely related to human chakras and organs. Planets and Horoscope will help identify Chakra energy, physical, mental, emotional strength, and diseases in the human body. Every planet is connected with respective chakras in our astral body.
Chakras indicate the qualities of a person through ruling planets. If a planet is weak, the respective chakra associated with that planet will also be weak.
This also means that if specific chakra energy is debilitated; health issues related to that chakra are caused. We call this method “AstakaVarga” in Vedic Astrology.
