men in uggs Vedic Medical Astrology
Medical Astrology is that branch of Astrology dealing with Health. The 12 Signs of the Zodiac are linked to the Twelve Limbs of the body. The Ascendant rules the Head and the 12th House, the Feet. The Law of Correspondences of Classical Philosophy has another term “The Doctrine of Signatures”. This doctrine states that objects animate and inanimate are governed by planets and Classical Astrology has taken this concept beyond “The Law of Cause and Effect” and has defined it as Archetypal or Psychological.
Reflections of the intrinsic qualities of the planets can be seen in people, plants, animals minerals. All that we see, touch, consume harvest has a correspondence. By knowing our own planetary signature, we can consume those materials which correspond to our planetary signature and thus a healthy balance can be maintained. (In my horoscope, Jupiter is posited in Cancer and hence powerful in positional as well as directional strength. If I am afflicted by any sort of disease, the escape route is the Jupiterian Way viz consuming more vegetables and fruits, as he rules fruits and vegetables. If I do that, I will be implementing what the Great Seers said long ago “Naturopathic food is medicine and medicine is food” )!
Since the Zodiacal Signs represent the Five Elements (Ether, Fire, Air,
Earth Water), the ancient astrological savants assigned everything in the Universe to a planetary ruler, and considered all as the manifestation of the Elemental Five and their respective qualities hot and dry, cold and dry, hot and humid, cold and humid. Jupiter rules “Kapha” and the Sun “Pitta” (the three humors of Ayurveda). These elements were understood in a physical metaphysical sense, as per the principle “As Above, So Below”. Many body constitutions are defined in Ayurveda. The Phlegmatic (predominance of Kapha), the Bilious ( preponderance of Pitta) the Windy (predominance of Vata). There are 4 types of Body Constitution in Western Holistic Medicine Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Choleric and Melancholic.
