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 wellbeing. 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. The natal chart becomes a blueprint that enables the practitioner and client to better understand their constitution and how to find and apply appropriate avenues of holistic living for optimum mind/body health.
