What is the relationship between astrology and medical science according to you?
The ancient Greek doctor and philosopher Hippocrates once said, “A physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” Those who have faith in astrology always considered the position of the sun and other planets to understand our health, our personalities, and to make predictions about the future. This is an old age tradition.
We can’t ignore our health if we want to live a happy, fit, and prosperous life. If we are suffering from health issues, it eventually breaks the whole cycle of life. You cannot study, work, or even earn if you are not healthy. To sustain in this competitive world, we should all be focusing on our health. Especially with current pollution, workload, duplicate food, pesticides, junk food habit etc. we all need an extra bit of care.
Which houses or planets are responsible for governing health or health related issues?
Astrology can help you to live a healthy & fit life. As each of our organ, anatomical structure, body part is inherently influenced by astrological elements; we can predict certain things through astrology.
2nd, 6th, 8th, and 12th house plays the major role in indicating health issues. If any of them is influenced by malefic planets, then the native will face health trouble. The native would suffer from related medical problem if any planet posited in those houses is weak or debilitated.
1. The 6th house denotes sickness, 8th house surgery, death, and 12th house hospitalization. If the sub lord of 12th cusp is in 6, the house of disease, and if the sub lord is in the constellation of the planet occupying or owning 6 or 8 or 12; it is definite that the native will have some health problem from the time when the significators conjointly operate.
2. If the sub lord of the ascendant is in the constellation of the significator of 6 or 8 or 12, then the native will suffer from disease or accident or hospitalization.

Can you please explain what is chakra? How many chakras are there and how they are related human characteristics and organs?
Dr. Sohini Sastri: According to Vedic astrology, planets and our birth sign is closely related to human chakras and organs. Planets and Horoscope will help identify Chakras energy, physical, mental, emotional strength, and diseases in the human body. Every planet relates to respective chakras in our astral body.
Chakras indicate qualities of a person through ruling planets. If any planet is weak, respective chakra associated with that planet would also be weak.
