It is rightly said that, "पहला सुख निरोगी काया", Health is certainly the greatest wealth that anybody desires. If we talk in the way our scriptures direct us, then everything summarizes to the fruit of one's karmic accounts. It is because of the karma that one witnesses happiness and sadness in life, it is the karma that brings in health or ailments. Astrologers believe in the powers that God has given to the planets who in a manner rule the auspicious and inauspicious results on account of the karma we create. Horoscope is the means to check and predict the details about life and health relations of a human being. Medical astrology is one such branch in present day astrology that delves into the more predictive aspects of astrology. It even elucidates the psychosomatic relationship between the human mind and body with an unparalleled sophistication and depth.

While many astrologers try to extract the deep truths of a person's psychological makeup from an individual's horoscope, medical astrologers on the other hand look at the planetary transits and progressions to the same individual's horoscope to determine which, if any, health issues one is likely to experience throughout the course of his or her life and when the same is likely to manifest so one can pretty well take the preventive measures beforehand. Hippocrates, one of the most outstanding figures and the Father of Medicine in the history of medicine, said, "A physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician." Medical astrology was, for thousands of years, an essential part of medicine. It's a complex astrological discipline that requires years of study and a keen, analytical mind, as well as knowledge of the body.

Today we live in an advanced age, a supersonic scientific era and therefore we have advanced ways in predicting the horoscope as compared to the ancient times where people would read the charts to determine the reasons for anybody suffering with any sort of health issues and proposing the remedies for coping with the same. As a matter of fact, even modern age people are referring to astrology for seeking unanswered, undiscovered theories about stuff that science has yet not understood. Any kind of health issues? Astrology will always give you an answer. Wow!! Interesting, isn't it!

Health Astrology is just the perfect branch, it talks about the various parts of a human body and their associations with different astrological signs, the planets and the houses. The most interesting thing is the representation of the human body which comprises 12 parts to one of the 12 zodiac signs starting with the top to bottom of the body.

The 12 zodiac signs in astrology also correspond to the 12 months of the year. Yes! And these zodiac signs can tell a lot about an individual. In my 10 years of practice in astrology, in all my counselling experiences, mentoring sessions and conversation with clients, I have come up with an understanding that astrology is purely an energy. It is a map of our souls. It tells about everything, our emotions, personality, relationships, impulses and our health. The likes, dislikes, preferences, likely choices one can make in future, career choices and what not, these zodiac signs give a great hint about an individual and his journey of life. No wonder one can look out for zodiac signs to learn a lot about people in all ways and health of course is a part of it!

Astrologers calculate the horoscope for any person which is the blueprint about one's life, it reveals a lot especilly the areas of vulnerability in the health and wellness domain. Considering the sixth house cusp in the horoscope which rules one's health, medicine and remedies helps an astrologer to predict the type of illnesses an individual may succumb to and at the very least reveals the sensitive areas. It's been a fantastic idea since ages that we look out for someone's astrological signs for a glimpse of their personality or the way they interact with the outside world. Imagine meeting someone and you try to notice their 'Capricorn Determination' or the 'Taurus Stability', sounds so cool! Yes, people do notice this while taking so many decisions of their lives, so what if they confine the secret within themselves!

Let's have a brief overview of each sign and the important details about health issues and ruling bodily organs with the respective months :
