In short, Medical Astrology is like an ancient method for X-Ray your body to find the potential disease since born, try to find the psychological or environmental cause, and also search for the source of the disease by the time client feels ill. Nowadays, it can be treated as a supplemental diagnosis besides the diagnosis from a professional doctor.

Medical astrology has several approaches practiced by lots of astrologers. Some use the natal chart, some use the natal chart and transit, and some combine horary astrology to make some medical diagnosis. The purpose of this article is to introduce the reader to some quick basic and important knowledge of medical astrology.

Some information here is credited to Eileen Nauman’s book: Medical Astrology. And if you are interested to learn, you can start from there. Another book I’ll recommend is Traditional Medical Astrology: Medical Astrology From Celestial Omens to 1930 CE by Dr. J. Lee Lehman.
