Medical Astrology for Well-being

Medical astrology can help you identify potential health problems before they even start.Since time immemorial humans have looked with awe and wonder at the sky and have felt the influences of the planets upon our lives. Our ancestors got up and went to sleep with the sun. They noted that plants react and grow at different paces in accordance with the phases of the moon. They respected and often worshipped these luminaries. As the centuries went by and homo sapiens became more and more advanced they observed more planets in the sky and connected the energies of the stars that they would see with life on earth.

Humanity has always looked for patterns in our search for purpose and meaning and astrology is one of the most ancient and symbolically rich systems that is available to us.

Astrology works because it acknowledges that everything in the universe is connected, which by the way is what physicists are talking about when discussing ‘string theory’!

We are made up of the same basic particles that astronauts and space travelling robots discover on distant planets. Of course these huge bodies in the sky have an influence on us.

Birth Chart/ Natal Chart

Understanding your natal chart (the blueprint for your life based on where the planets were when you were born) will give you insights into why you behave, react, feel and look the way you do. When we understand the big ‘whys’ of how we are we can take appropriate steps to alleviate extremes and to place ourselves in situations that help us to grow rather than stagnate and crumble.


Looking at the transits of the planets into and out of relationship with your natal chart can shed light on the best ways to approach particular periods of time or when it is most beneficial to undertake particular activities such as travel, job interviews, romantic pursuits.

Medical Astrology

We can also use astrology to give us lots of information about health and wellbeing, this is called “Medical Astrology” and has been used as far back as Babylonian times. Medical astrology helps you to understand which aspects of your physical and mental health you need to take particular care of. When you have a wellbeing issue, medical astrology can give you an understanding of why, how long the condition is likely to be a problem and also what you can do to overcome the condition, using specific foods, herbs, Bach Flower remedies and lifestyle approaches.

In our work we use Sidereal Astrology. The word sidereal means “of, or calculated by, the stars”. Sounds pretty obvious when we’re talking about astrology doesn’t it?! This is the way that our ancient ancestors first began to practice astronomy and astrology – by looking at the stars, the planets, the constellations themselves.

So how is this different to the standard practice of astrology that most people are used to? Well around 2000 years ago the stars matched the seasons and at the Equinox in March (Spring in the northern hemisphere) the Sun moved into the constellation of Aries. Tropical Western (aka ‘common or garden’) astrology has continued to view the astrological calendar in this way, ie. the March Equinox (21st/22nd March) is fixed as the beginning of Aries season and everything else follows from that.

However, in the 2nd century BC, a Greek astronomer called Hipparchus, discovered that there is a tiny but gradual shift in the orientation of the Earth’s axis of rotation, called precession. What this means is that over thousands of years the view of the stars from the Earth has shifted so that at the March Equinox the Sun actually now still rises in the constellation of Pisces, and doesn’t move into Aries for another month or so. The precession shift happens at a rate of about 1 degree every 72 years.

To me it makes much more sense to take the science of astrology from where the stars are actually placed, rather than where they were placed 2000 years ago. Once we had my own birth chart in the sidereal system it certainly rang very true for me! The system of sidereal astrology that we have been taught also takes the constellations at their actual sizes so it does not simply divide up the zodiac into 12 equal portions – it really can’t, because that is not how the constellations are – they are all different sizes. Excitingly my system also incorporates the 13th constellation of Ophiuchus, which was originally included in astrology in ancient times but has been left out for hundreds of years now. Ophiuchus should be included because it sits in the zodiac belt along with the other 12 constellations. Importantly though, what doesn’t change between Sidereal and Tropical Western astrology is the meanings, symbolism and psychology of the signs, planets and houses.

What is Medical Astrology?

Medical Astrology (historically known as iatromathematics) is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, foods, and herbal medicines as being under the influence of the Planets and the 12 Astrological signs.

It is referenced in ancient texts from Babylon and Egypt to India, Europe and early American folklore medicine.

It is not a diagnosis but a suggestion of how or why certain individuals may experience different levels of health or illness and gives ideas of living that may enhance one’s well-being.

Similar to traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic theory, medical astrology also uses the 4 elements both for understanding a person’s health weaknesses and strengths but also in the application and choice of foods, herbal medicines and activities to restore equilibrium.
