Heart Disease In Medical Astrology & Remedies: Today Heart Disease has become so common due to a sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food intake, setting high targets and taking huge stress, insufficient sleep, no physical exercise, and many anxiety disorders.
What causes a Heart Attack?
- High Cholesterol: One of the primary causes of heart disease is high cholesterol. Jupiter is the karaka of Cholesterol, therefore if afflicted then due to high cholesterol, a person might have to go through a heart attack.
- High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a persistent risk for the human body. Mars is the karaka of blood and muscles so if Mars is weak or makes relation with disease houses then due to high B.P. person will go through Heart illness.
- Diabetes: This is caused by Venus, and if related to Rahu it worsens the condition.
- Congestive Heart Failure: Here Saturn plays the role, as it blocks the arteries.
Planets responsible for heart Disease in Medical Astrology
Sun is the 5th lord of Natural Zodiac and is a significator of Heart. So if it makes any relation with Marak, Badhak, 6th, 8th, and 12th lord then it will affect the internal system. This will weaken the immunity of the body.
Let me explain the position of afflicted Sun with all planets. As there are different kinds of heart diseases, so all the planets have different significations.
Sun with Mars: Here both the planets are of pitta temperament, so it will dry up the fluid inside your body. Hence if the Sun is imbalanced, there is a lot of dryness inside. Also since this makes a strong Agni Dosha, then the person can have anger issues, and this can increase his BP and due to hypertension, it can give heart illness.
Sun with Rahu: This is a combination of fire and space. Rahu explodes the energy of the planet, it is posited. Therefore if Sun is related to 6th, 8th 12th, and Badhak in the horoscope, and Rahu is placed with Sun, then Rahu will increase the negative results of Sun. So here Sun can give sudden heart attack, as Rahu is karaka of suddenness and ups and downs in life.
Sun with Moon
Moon is the 4th lord of the natural zodiac and is also a karaka of the 4th house. This is a combination of Fire and Water. Though as planets, Sun and Moon might be friendly to each other. But according to Ayurveda, Agni and water make a Dosh.
This combination actually disturbs the metabolism of the body. Bad lifestyle and unhealthy food intake is the reason. This combination actually makes the person irritated and emotionally very weak. So in such a case, if Moon takes the lordship of 6th 8th 12th and Badhak in the horoscope, then it can make the heart weak and prone to diseases.
Houses Responsible for Heart Disease in Medical Astrology
The 4th House
The 4th house represents Heart in medical astrology. Therefore if Malefic planets like Saturn, Rahu, Mars, and Ketu are posited in 4th house and also related to disease houses, then all these planets are capable of giving heart disease.
The 5th house
The 5th house also covers the chest area. So if malefic planets in 5th house and related to Badhak, 6th lord, 8th lord, and 12th lord, then it will surely give Heart disease.
I would like to add that Zodiac signs Cancer and Leo also are very important. Therefore while checking the heart disease in the horoscope, if these signs are either afflicted with malefic planets or related to disease houses (6th, 8th, 12th lord, Marak, and Badhak) then the person will suffer from heart disease.
Other Combinations causing Heart Disease
As explained above, Sun is the Karaka of Heart. Therefore if Sun and Saturn are conjunct in the chart, and related to disease houses, and no benefit aspect. Then the person will have a weak heart.
If Moon and Saturn are conjunct in the chart, this is a Vish yoga. It is also called Poonar phoo Yoga. This yoga in fact gives many problems. Saturn is a planet of blockage and Moon is the fluid. So if conjunct Saturn blocks the fluids going in blood. This will damage the heart from pumping blood.
I would like to remind you that while analyzing a horoscope, the divisional charts play a significant role. So all the above combinations need to be checked in D-9 the Navamsha Chart and D-27 the SaptVimshamsha chart.
Another important factor while checking Heart disease in the horoscope is the timeline. Now this the running Mahadasha and Antar Dasha, and the transit of planets.
Planets that Help in Recovery of Heart Disease
Jupiter is the natural significator of good health. Therefore it is very important to see the strength of Jupiter in the horoscope. If Jupiter takes the lordship or position of 6th, 8th, 12th, and badhak, then it loses its power. Rather in such cases, it can worsen heart disease.
But if Jupiter is strong and lord of 5th, 9th and 11th house, here Jupiter in it’s Dasha can actually help in recovery. Even the lords of 5th 9th and 11th house and planets posited her also shows the recovery period. Hence a positive Jupiter and benefic planets are a saving factor in the horoscope.
Timely Remedies to get rid of Heart Diseases
I believe prevention is better than cure. The whole idea behind writing the blog is to spread awareness among people about certain planetary combinations which can make you prone to Heart Diseases, Therefore, it’s better to follow such a routine, before the onset of disease, which will strengthen your planets. Hence you can overpower Heart Disease.
- Moon rules your mind, 4th house, comfort, and sleep. It also represents fluids in your body. So let’s decode all these factors. This means we should drink a lot of water, take good quality sleep, as good sleep increases your immunity. And at the same time stop taking alcohol. This way we can bring Moon under control.
- For Sun we should give water to the sun till 8.00 am in the morning. Do meditations and Pranayama every day. This way we balance our seven Chakras. If all Chakras are balanced, our immunity system becomes quite strong. Physical exercises should be introduced in the daily routine. Avoid high cholesterol food and junk food. You should eat healthy and fiber-rich food.
- Lastly, I will say avoid taking stress. Stress is actually a real man-eater. It takes away all your happiness. The truth is though you are thinking of a prosperous future, the stress is truly ruining your present situation. In fact, stress reduces your productivity, therefore I will suggest, reduce stress and add laughter and calmness to your life.
