In the ancient time there was a deep link between astrology and ayurveda. Astrology is a great science. Medical science cured our diseases of our body or body parts. Similarly diseases can be predict and cured through astrology. Sometimes it is seen that after taking medicine according to medical science, the disease can not be cured. But after taking remedies according to astrology, the disease is cured with the same medicine. Sometimes the physician treats wrong due to planetary position. So if a physician has deep knowledge in astrology, then the diseases will be predicted more surely and the patient will be informed in advance.
Greek physician Hippocrates ——- who is called the father of Allopathy, said that , “A physician without the knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.”
Dr. Kallman of Psychiatric Institute, New York(USA) said, “Every being has a clock set at the moment of his birth, which predetermines particularly illness and accidents.”
Dr. B.V. Raman said, “An experienced astrologer could indicate the predisposition of a person towards heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer etc. with considerable accuracy.”
How to detect diseases:
6th, 8th and 12th house are evil house. When a planet placed in any of these houses, or the lords of these houses is placed in the other houses or conjoined with other planets and make relation with natural malefic or disease inflicting planet, then in the dasha or antardasha of the damaged planet the disease will be take place in the parts indicating by the planet, the house and the sign(rashi). 6th house is the house of disease and 6th lord is responsible for disease. 8th house and 8th lord indicate chronic disease, incurable disease and death. 12th lord and 12th house indicate suffering and hospitalization. The dasha and antardasha of the lords of these houses and the planets who make relation with these houses or the house lords should be judged very carefully. Besides this the dasha of the maraka planet should judged very carefully. We judge longevity from 8th house. 8th from the 8th is 3rd. the 3rd house is the alternative house of longevity. We know that we judge the expenditure of any house from it’s 12th house. So 12th of 8th —– 7th and 12th house of 3rd —–2nd are called maraka and the lords of these houses are called lord of maraka. In classical astrology 22nd drekkan of ascendant is called the reason of death. We should judge from ascendant, from Moon, from Sun and from Mesh rashi to predict any disease. When from two or more lagna the disease has been predicted, then the disease will surely take place. One another thing to judge, expect Sun and Moon every planet is owned two signs. Planets give the most result of it’s mool-trikona. Such as for Karkat lagna, Jupiter is the 6th lord and the 9th lord. As dhanu rashi is Jupiters mool-trikona and it is the 6th house for karkata lagna, Jupiter gives the most result of it’s 6th lordship.
I am not giving here which planet represent what kind of disease. Hopefully it is known to all learned astrologer. Here I am giving my experiences.
Cancer is a disease which is nearly incurable. It is said that —-‘Cancer has no answer’. Cancer is a malignant tumor, which can be grown in any part of body and spreads rapidly into the hole body. Rahu is responsible for all malignant growth. When malefic and strong Rahu makes relations with 6th, 8th, or 12th house or with 6th, 8th or 12th lord and aspects any house or placed in any house or placed in maraka house or aspects the maraka house or conjoined with maraka planet, then malignant growth can be effected to the parts of body which are indicated by above mentioned houses or signs. Besides this, when a house is afflicted by the lords of evil houses and the malefic planets, specially by Mars, Saturn and Rahu, then there is maximum chance of cancer in that parts of body indicated by that house. Strength of lagna and lord of lagna should also be judged.
Sometimes it is seen that part of body indicating house is not afflicted, but lagna, lord of lagna and indicator of that body parts is heavily afflicted. And from Sun lagna, Moon lagna and natural lagna(Mesh rashi), the house — indicator of the body part is heavily afflicted. Then cancer will be there in that part of body.
When 6th lord is placed in the lagna, 8th or 12th house and Mars, Saturn, Rahu make relation with that house or house lord and afflict any house, then cancer will effect in that parts of body which is indicated by the afflicted house or planet.
We should also judge the position of Ketu is responsible for all types of hidden disease. As a karaka of cancer Ketu should also be judged.
So we should judge Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars as the karaka planet of cancer. If these planets make relation with the lord of evil houses(6th, 8th, 12th) then there is a chance of cancer.
If a sign or house is afflicted by Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars together and if these four planets conjoined with maraka or some of them are maraka or afflicted by evil lord, then cancer will be there in part of body indicates by the afflicted house.
LEUKEMIA OR BLOOD CANCER
Leukemia is a disease due to increasing of white cell in blood. Malignant growth is created in white cell of blood and destroys the red cell of blood. New red cells are not created, so due to lack of pure blood pure blood is needed to be transplant. After some days the red cells of that new blood also destroyed. This disease is commonly known as ‘blood cancer’. Moon and Mars are the karaka of blood. From the signs Karkata, Vrischuka and Meena are the karaka of blood. And from the houses 4th, 8th and 12th house indicate blood.
Laws of the disease: If lagna and lord of lagna make relation with 6th house, 6th lord, Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars and the watery signs —- Karkata, Vrischika and Meena are heavily afflicted, and with these 4th, 8th and 12th house also are being afflicted specially by Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars then there is maximum possibility of blood cancer (This combinations should judged from every side, i.e. from lagna, moon, sun and mesh rashi). Beside these it is necessary to judge if the natural 6th lord Mercury is afflicted or not, the karaka of blood — Moon and Mars are afflicted or not by the malefic. Mars is the main karaka of blood. Mars is karaka for red cell and Moon is karaka for white cell. So if Moon and Mars are found to be weak by any reason, afflicted by malefic, debilitated, and afflicted by Rahu or Ketu and placed in the 6th, 8th, 12th or makes relation with 6th, 8th or 12th lord then there is maximum chance of blood cancer.
Rahu is responsible for any type of malignant growth and Ketu is responsible for hidden disease —– the disease which can not be detected easily. When Rahu and Ketu without any benefic aspect afflicts 4th, 8th, 12th house or the lords of the houses and the watery signs and Moon, Mars and make relation with 8th lord then there is maximum possible of blood cancer.
Example 1. Date of birth – 30.11.1995, Time of birth – 07:54 a.m. IST ,
Place of birth – Howrah, West Bengal, India.
Explanations of example 1 : Ascendant(Lagna) Dhanus. Mars and Venus in lagna. Saturn and Moon in 3rd. Ketu in 5th. Rahu in 11th. Sun , Mercury and Jupiter in 12th.
Case history: Blood cancer of the native was detected in August 2001. Then mahadasha of Jupiter and antardasha of Venus was running. The native is under treatment and now he is quite well.
Analysis : 1. Lagna is in the star of Ketu. Lord of lagna is in 12th house —– in the blood indicated house and in the star of the Maraka and badhaka —- Mercury, and aspected by Rahu and Saturn. The 12th lord Mars —- the indicator of blood is in lagna and conjoined with the 6th lord Venus. Mars and Venus both are in the star of Ketu. So the lagna and the lord of lagna both are afflicted by malefic.
- Mars , who is in the star of Ketu and joined with 6th lord Venus is aspecting the watery sign Karkat rashi. The lord of that sign — Moon is placed in 3rd(8th from the 8th) conjoined with the 3rd lord Saturn and aspected by Rahu. Vrischika rashi is aspected by Rahu(which is in the star of Mars) and Saturn(the maraka). The lord of the sign — Mars is conjoined with 6th lord Venus and in the star of Ketu. The Meena rashi is aspected by Mars and Jupiter(who is aspected by Saturn and Rahu). The lord of Meena rashi — Jupiter is in the 12th and aspected by Saturn and Rahu. So all the watery signs and their lords are afflicted.
- Natural 6th lord Mercury is the Maraka and Badhak itself. That mercury is in the 12th house and in his enemy’s house and aspected by Rahu and Saturn. So the Mercury is also afflicted.
- The 8th lord Moon is in 3rd house(8th from the 8th) and aspected by Rahu. That Moon is also the lord of 22nd Drekkan. So the 8th lord is afflicted.
- Indicator of longevity and normal health — Sun is in the 12th house, in the star of Saturn and aspected by Saturn and Rahu. Sun is also conjoined with Maraka and Badhaka — Mercury. So the Sun is also afflicted.
- The blood indicating houses — 4th , 8th and 12th house have fallen in the watery signs. So all these houses and the lords of these houses are afflicted, as I have described in point no. 2.
- The 6th house is aspected by Maraka and Badhaka Mercury and afflicted Jupiter and Sun. The 6th lord Venus is placed in lagna, in the star of Ketu and conjoined with blood representing planet — Mars. So the 6th lord and 6th house both are afflicted.
- In respect of Moon Lagna: The 6th lord Moon is in lagna conjoined with lord of lagna and in the star of 2nd and 11th lord Jupiter. Lagna and the lord of lagna are aspected by Rahu. So lagna and lord of lagna both are afflicted.
The 4th house is Jupiter(2nd and 11th lord)and 8th lord Mercury. The lord of 4th house — Venus is in 11th house(6th from the 6th), in the star of Ketu, conjoined with Mars.There is no direct aspect of any planet in the 8th house, but there is rashi aspect of Venus. The 8th lord Mercury is aspected by Saturn and Rahu,and conjoined with 2nd and 11th lord Jupiter.In 12th , there is also the rashi aspect of Mercury(8th lord), Jupiter(2nd and 11th lord) and Sun(7th lord). The 12th lord is placed in lagna, conjoined with the 6th lord and aspected by Rahu. So all the blood indicating houses and their lords are afflicted.
6th house is aspected by 3rd lord Mars and Jupiter. 6th lord being the karaka of blood is aspected by Rahu . So 6th house and 6th lord both are afflicted.
- The karaka for blood Moon and Mars both are afflicted.
- From Sun lagna: Lagna is aspected by Rahu and Saturn and conjoined by 2nd lord Jupiter and 8th lord Mercury. Maraka Jupiter is in the star of 8th lord. The lord of lagna Mars is in the 2nd house i.e. in the maraca sthana and in the star of Ketu. That Mars is also conjoined with 7th (maraca) and 12th( karaka for blood) lord Venus, and Venus is in the star of Ketu. So lagna and lord of lagna both are afflicted.
In the 6th , Ketu is placed in his own star and aspected by Saturn and Rahu. 6th lord Mars is afflicted. So, 6th house and lord of 6th house both are afflicted by Rahu, Ketu and Saturn.
In 4th house and on the lord of 4th house there is aspect of Rahu. Moon – karaka for blood is placed in the 4th and aspected by Rahu and Saturn. The 8th house is aspected by Rahu , 6th lord Mars and maraka Venus. Mars and Venus both are in the star of Ketu. 8th lord Mercury is hemmed between malefics and aspected by Rahu and Saturn. Rahu is placed in the 12th house in the star of Mars. The 12th lord Venus is in the 2nd house— maraca sthana, in the star of Ketu, conjoined with 6th lord Mars. So the blood indicating houses——4th, 8th and 12 house and their lords are afflicted.
