Your Health Horoscope
Basics of Authentic Medical Astrology
Since ancient times, astrology and the horoscope have been used to track health problems and find ways to solve them. It is usually called medical astrology, or with a traditional term Iatromathematics (the math of curing).
Your horoscope gives several clues to your health and what you might do to improve problems you may have with it.
There are four major factors at work in the horoscope, also when it comes to health indicators: the what, how, where, and why:
Planets and similar points in the horoscope show what happens, what active power is at work.
Zodiac signs show how the planets act, the characteristics of the event.
Houses show where in one's life, in what environment, the planets act.
Aspects, the special angles between planets, show why the planets act as they do.
It's the same regarding your health horoscope. An obstructed planet can cause health problems linked to its own nature, and with the characteristics of the Zodiac sign the planet is in, usually in the body part governed by that Zodiac sign. Your health problem will be particularly influential and apparent in the environment of the House the planet is in, and the reason for the planet causing trouble is seen in the aspects it forms to other planets - either those of your birth chart, or planets in the sky that form transit aspects to those in your chart.
That's really all you need to examine in your health horoscope. But of course, it takes some time to sort out and understand these variables correctly.
Study your past to know your future. That's as true for astrology as it is for life in general.
I'm a Swedish writer and astrologer. Apart from fiction, I've written several books about astrology and spirituality. I'm also a historian of ideas, researching the thought patterns in creation myths. Google Profile. Here's my personal website: stenudd.com
By authentic astrology I mean proper use of the horoscope, according to astrological theory. The complete horoscope chart consists of many more components than your star sign (where the sun was at your birth). The latter has quite limited applications, which should be respected. This website deals mainly with the complete horoscope, and states clearly when that's not the case.

Astrology BasicsThe astrology basics present the astrological components and their significance in the personal horoscope. They are the twelve Zodiac signs, the twelve planets, the twelve Houses, and the five aspects.
There are astrologers who use additional celestial bodies, as well as additional aspects. I stick to the horoscope fundamentals specified by Ptolemy, the Greek mathematician of the 2nd century CE, in his classic on astrology: Tetrabiblos. It's the primary source to western astrology.
