Look to Your Stars for a Healthy Bodyby Opinion Express September 23, 2018 0 comments
Bharat Bhushan Padmadeo, astrologer, vastu consultant and spiritual counsellor, talks about how our health is connected to our stars.
Mind and matter are both rooted to a common pool of energies flowing through the cosmos, and are therefore, inter alia connected. So, no wonder, when mind is under stress for whatever reasons, it has related bearing on the person’s health status. In the same vein, if physical health comes under strain, it disturbs one’s mind-state. It simply implies that in the event of ailment, a holistic approach is needed to get over the problem.
The other day, worried parents of a man suffering from ulcerative colitis came asking: “What lies in store of our son’s destiny in so far as his health status is concerned?” “Well, it is unfair to chart out your son’s health profile in finite terms,” I suggested. For, it depends on so many factors. If he has health issues, it certainly needs medical help, and I am sure he must be undergoing treatment. Medicine will play its part. But simultaneously, he has to work upon his thought process. Otherwise, medicine may suppress his suffering for a while, but problem may keep arising again and again.
Explaining further, I suggested that if your son is suffering from ulcerative colitis, it would mean that the fire element is higher than the desired level. That leads to excessive bile secretion in the body, which has been corroding his intestine. If there is excess of fire element, it will find reflection in the person’s usual conduct also.
A look into the man’s chart reveals that mind signifying Moon occupies a movable sign Aries marked with fire, which is ruled by Mars. That speaks of a hot headed person. He would be impulsive, aggressive, intolerant, impatient, and judgmental. He wishes to be at the head of things, not open to listening or counsel of others. In fact, it is difficult for him to digest any contrarian views. A person with high ambitions and desires may jump into action targeting his dream destination without applying proper forethought. Evidently, for lack of the required level of preparedness, he remains vulnerable to be caught unaware when confronted with challenging situations. It is only when put to difficult situations, that he applies his mind. But then such characters carry the potential to be the best crisis managers also.
The Sun, the planet identified with his individuality, occupies another movable sign Capricorn. It speaks of a being armed with leadership abilities, keen to move in an organised way, but on his own exclusive terms, as would his lagna sign Gemini imply. Gemini born carry the tendency to have only ‘yes-persons’ around. So long you agree with their viewpoints, you remain their best friend. The moment any contrarian view is offered, they can’t take it kindly, and feel offended. If that was not enough, the lagna-lord Mercury occupies the nakshatra owned by erratic Rahu, which is conjunct fiery Mars in a watery sign Pisces. That leaves him boiling when confronted with an advisory that would be at variance with his perceptions. He may then lose his sense of order and direction, and misdirect his energies towards unproductive ends.
The Sun is posited in the lunar constellation owned by Moon. It, therefore, carries the fiery streaks of Moon. Not simply that, the two are placed adverse to each other. That makes him vulnerable to a lot of stressful situations. What further compounds his problem is his volatile emotionality. For, emotions signifying Venus is placed adverse to both the luminaries. That makes him too touchy and sensitive, who may get over exercised even on trivial issues. He may keep unnecessarily mulling over them for long. In a way, it can be said that from within, he remains a live boiling pot. Evidently with dissipation of so much fire within, his gross-body has to come under strain.
Now, in terms of his specific ailment, the lagna lord Mercury occupies the nakshatra owned by Rahu, which is conjunct Mars, the sixth lord identified with ailment. So, his health profile is fragile. Placement of eighth lord Saturn in the sixth house implies long drawn ailment. The sixth cusp sub-lord Venus occupies the fiery sign Sagittarius, and is posited in the nakshatra owned by Ketu, which occupies Virgo sign identified with lower intestine. That makes him vulnerable to long drawn problem of bowel genesis.
Now to get over his problem, it is important that the man works upon his thought process as much as he has to follow medical prescription. Remember, a healthy mind facilitates a healthy body chemistry.
