Medical Astrology not only is the study of the symbolism of the Planets but as well takes a look at ‘ how’ our Ancient thinkers developed what and how the body works since the beginning of mankind. While the effects of the planets were understood, the impact the planets had on the body were developed through the use of Humours, developed in the school of Hippocrates. Putting the effects of the temperaments and the Humours together, gave our early physicians a way to interpret/diagnose or see into the body through the Planetary movements. We all understand the elements that make up our material world as- Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Too much fire a choleric condition, too much water a phlegmatic condition etc.
The study of a natal & transit chart can help people understand their ability to overcome an illness. WHEN is a good time to do a surgery for the best possible outcome? How long is the expected recovery? What may be the possible complications of that surgery? All of these can be answered through the use of Medical Astrology!
My aim is to be able to use the Natal Chart to better understand an individuals constitution. As I’ve always said the Sun, Moon and Rising sign are important. These are the places to look to, to support and strengthen the health of a client. The Natal chart can be useful in determining an illness or condition to determine whether this is an acute circumstance or a chronic condition. YES everything is IN the Stars!
Another branch of Medical Astrology is Horary Astrology which developed the use of a decumbiture chart. This is a chart that is drawn from the moment someone takes ill or realizes they are ill or summons a doctor (a Natal chart or known birth time is not necessary for this type of reading). This is fascinating to me as it gives us a description of the illness, recovery, and any possible hidden problems. Like “yes she had a heart attack but the culprit may have been something else!” I have worked with this type of chart and find them utterly fascinating.
Another branch is Electional Astrology which helps us to figure out when is the “best time” to have a procedure, start a health regime and take medications so they are the most effective.
Medical Astrology can be helpful as it can give a doctor/patient a look into their health with a great level of accuracy as this was the only method available until X-rays, CT scans, Microscopes etc. were invented. Medical Astrology looks through the same lens the Physicians used just over 200 years ago. These are the same techniques used, up until the mid 1800s. By law, less than only 150 years ago Doctors were required to calculate the position of the Moon before any surgery-The Moon is our luminary that filters thru all the planetary energies!
What isn’t Astrology? It is not a Religion: It is the only techniques, using empirical evidence passed down through mankind for over 2000 years to help us understand our lives, environment and relationships better. Unless you believe using the tools God has created for us to use, is some kind of religion?
When you look beyond just planet earth and can accept the perfectness of our earthly realm can you understand the breadth of this perfect world. For over 4000 years we have looked to the stars and have found our lives on earth reflected in them.
This pairs very well with my other modality of Energy Healing! Working with the natural energies of the small rocks below our feet and tapping into the energy available to us using crystals as they have their own source of energy (created by our creator)! The crystals help the body to vibrate to the most optimum vibration for healing to take place!
Again I want to stress if you need Medical attention, by all means seek a Medical Physician. If you want to understand what the stars are trying to say, seek a Medical Astrological reading. If you want to support your health, a Medical Astrological reading can offer insight while a Chakra Balance or Chakra Healing session may offer an additional path to take.
In Ancient times all Physicians were Astrologers, not all Astrologers were physicians. Crystals have been used since BC. Herbs have been used probably longer than that! The evidence is in, people in Ancient times felt better using these methods. Knowledge only reserved for the benefit of kings and leaders is available to us. This is not to replace the Medical care we can obtain at our local Hospitals and Modern Doctors, but surely may just have a place once again in supporting our health.
