Traditionally known as iatromathematics, medical astrology is an old applied discipline of astrology that is founded on melothesia, or the Greek concept of associating different body parts, illnesses, and medications with the nature of the sun, moon, planets, and the twelve astrological signs. Since astrology itself lacks a solid scientific foundation, it is regarded as a pseudoscience and serves as the foundation for medical astrology.
Although astrology’s use in medicine dates back thousands of years to places like India, China, and Egypt, it was in Europe between the years 1450 and 1700 when it really took off. From the Arab nations, astrology’s impact spread to European medicine. In general, it is not an exaggeration to say that astrology predominated everything at the time. As a result, many systems of knowledge relied on it, worked in harmony with it, or included it in their worldview. Astrologers assigned planets to govern over organs and systems, signs of the zodiac to rule over diseases and medications, and signs of the zodiac to rule over various body parts. As a result, the entire system is built on observation and interpretation using a complicated set of predetermined Rulerships.
Diseases and the human body are deeply intertwined. In actuality, diseases play a significant role in our lives. Each sign and each planet is connected to a certain ailment according to medical astrology. We can also state that if a person’s planet or zodiac sign weakens, they may be susceptible to certain ailments. Even yet, it’s not a given that you’ll get every illness.
