You may know all the hidden things about your life through your birth chart! All aspects like education, marriage, love affairs, career, health, spouse, children, foreign tours and settlement etc. can be seen through the horoscope.
If we particularly talk about the health of a person, then no medical diagnosis can give you better indications than your own kundli or birth chart. We see people suffering from various diseases not even heard a few years back. Every day, some new or the other disease tends to attack people in the most gruesome manner. Can Astrology explain the reasons behind bad health of a person? Can astrology tell which diseases a person is likely to get affected? Can astrology predict the time period of illness?
The answer is YES!
Know your health by your birth chart
In Vedic Astrology, all planets and houses have their own natural significations which they exert at their occupying place or the occupants respectively. In the health horoscope of a person, the 6th, 8th and 12th houses are concerned with the health of a person. The maraka houses i.e. 2nd and 7th house are also seen to know about the health of a person.
The 6th house- it is the main house of diseases and enemies. Diseases are the biggest enemies for a person.
The 8th house- it shows hidden diseases, surgeries and accidents
The 12th house- it shows hospitalization, confinement to bed due to long illness, medical bills
The 2nd and 7th house- they show death like effects and give troubles in relation to the health
Now, there are certain rules to diagnose a health problem in a kundli:
If malefic planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are sitting in the 6th, 8th and 12th houses, they save the native from diseases. However, they should not be weak here else they may not fight against the diseases for the native. Malefic planets are known to fight against the specifications of a house. Since, it’s a bad house so the bad specifications would be fought against.
The benefic planets should not be placed here as they are known to enhance the specifications of a house. Nobody wants enhancement in diseases. But if they are weak, they can’t increase the effect. A planet has to be strong to give effects.
The connection of the planets with the house of diseases and the connection of the lords of the house of diseases with other houses or lords give rise to various planetary combinations for diseases.
If strong planets are sitting in the 2nd and 7th house then also they may give diseases as per their specifications. For e.g. a strong Moon in the second house may give diseases of eye as the 2nd house denotes eyes and the Moon is a karaka of eye diseases as it reflects light.
Rahu at the same place may give deformity in teeth or smoking habits etc. so, the diagnosis changes as per the placement and strength of the planet.
But one thing is there, any connection of planets with these houses give diseases. A healthy person has well placed 6th, 8th and 12th houses.
