Medical Astrology By Acharya V Shastri
By Acharya V Shastri
Life is beset with good and bad, health and disease. No living being is free from health problem at one time or other. Medical science can diagnose the disease only when it occurs. Prevention from diseases, like the communicable and epidemic diseases, is possible by taking preventive measures in time. It is only astrology, numerology (not name numerology, which is not a science) and palmistry that can warn about a pending disease. The life of living creatures, particularly that of humans, is governed by the planetary influences, which can be read from the horoscope and Gochara.
The effect of planets on each sign, house and on each other plays an important role on the health in general and on particular organs. This effect will be felt during particular Dasa Vidasa (periods, sub-periods) of concerned planets. Some chronic or permanent disabilities occur in accordance with the placement of malefic planets in certain positions. Occasional physical disabilities and disturbances occur due to the astrological factors in time and space.
