Ayurveda and Astrology

Ayurveda is a medical system that deals not only with body but with the mind and spirit as well. According to Ayurveda, most diseases connected with the psycho physiologic and pathologic changes in the body are caused by imbalance in three different elements Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The primary aim of Ayurvedic therapy is to restore the balance between these three major body systems. Any imbalance in these three elements can lead to health problem. The medical astrology is a technique which use by the Medical Astrologer, based on exact time, place & date of birth of the person. The horoscope is a blueprint of the whole being, reflecting the complex interaction of body, mind and spirit. these three body, mind and spirits in astrology  are Ascendant, Moon and Sun.

The astral body is the Moon the emotional being its position and influence on it and the fourth house of heart and inner peace. The causal body or Sun is indicator of soul and influence on it, and dharma and fifth and 9th house. By checking condition ascendant, moon, and sun  can give clues about person body, mind and spirit and according to that a medical astrologer can deal with it. The balanced coordination of body, mind, and consciousness (spirit) is the Ayurveda definition of health.
