There is a famous adage- ‘Health is Wealth”! This is all the more true in the modern age, with medical bills soaring high, creating big holes in the pockets. We also believe that prevention is always better than cure. But you would take prevention only if you know about the threat! This could majorly be linked to health problems. The modern lifestyle and its negative results are sneaking through hasty routines, bad eating habits, adulterated products, high-stress levels, blindfolded rat race, cutthroat competitions, etc.
How wonderful it would be if someone could alert us against possible diseases and the time of their occurrence. Don’t worry; Medical Astrology or health astrology is there!

House for health in birth chart
In a birth chart, the 6th, 8th, 12th, and maraka houses 2nd and 7th are majorly seen for diseases. The 6th house is a house of diseases and is the most important house for diagnosing diseases in a native’s life. The astrologers believe that-
- It is good to have malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Ketu, Sun, and Mars in the sixth house as they fight against diseases. However, they should be strong enough in shadbala as only strong planets can give good or bad results.
- It is not good to have benefic planets in the sixth house. The benefic planets like Jupiter, Venus, Moon, and Mercury are known to enhance the results of the house they are placed in. thus, they will enhance the diseases here. They should not be strong at all, or else major afflictions may occur.
Every sign, house, and planet in Astrology is associated with certain diseases. Medical Astrology is a vast subject but has proved its relevance since time immemorial. It has amazingly helped many people with its timely detection and ultimate cure. It is no matter less important than Medical Science.
The dasha of maraka Lords and trik house Lords may cause diseases in a native’s life. Thus, regular consultations are necessary to understand the bad effects of any upcoming dasha of disease-causing planets. With their placement in the good houses, Trik lords also take their disease-causing energies to these houses. They may give health afflictions related to the body parts indicated by their house of placement in its dasha.
Moreover, many planetary combinations for diseases have been prescribed in various astrological texts. For e.g., whenever Rahu will transit through the natal Moon, it will give disease related to the part indicated by that house. Just by looking at the placement and association of the planets, a learned astrologer may predict possible diseases and suggest the most effective remedies to stay away from them. Even if the health issue occurs, astrological remedies may provide a big relief if taken in time without going for intricate medical procedures.
