The connection of Health and Immunity to Astrology

The connection of Health and Immunity to Astrology

In Yogic Sciences, it is asserted that the human body has five layers of covering known as Annamaya Kosha, Pranamaya Kosha, Manomaya Kosha, Vijnanmaya Kosha, and Anandmaya Kosha. With the help of Astrology, we can figure out our immunity level as compared to others, But how so? It is also said that our energy system is run by the Prana energy symbolized and signified by the Sun – the creator of Life. All the practices like Shakti Chalana, Surya Kriya, and Surya Namaskar are designed to enhance and rejuvenate the prana energy so the body feels brand new devoid of any pain or illness residing in it. The Sun is up every day. If it does not come up even for a day, all the life which we call as human beings, plants, animals, etc. all will die and perish. The Sun’s effect on our life is thus very profound. In countries where the weather remains dark and dull, people tend to remain a bit gloomy too on the inside. But when the sun is up and the sun rays reflect here and there, happiness bursts forth automatically. 

Sun and Us

Similarly, in Astrology, the root of life signifying health and immunity is the Lagna or the Ascendant or Rising Sign of your horoscope. The Sun is regarded as the karakar or indicator of the Lagna. A well-placed Sun is indicative of a body that is well-rested, active, robust, and lively. But if the Sun is ill-placed, the native’s body can carry chronic ailments and make him or her lose vitality at a faster rate. 

Zodiacs and the Elements

Every Zodiac Sign is ruled by an Element of Nature. The Zodiac signs which are ruled by Fire are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. They are known as Agni Tatva Signs and are usually considered stronger than the Zodiacs ruled by the Element of Water or Jal Tatva like Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. 

With the pandemic already in place and many people already dead, people are opting for any method that can help them to recover fast and be robust again. In Astrology, some planets indicate health and Immunity. These are Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu. But let us discuss the two most powerful indicators of health and immunity amongst these— The Sun and The Moon.  

Sun –

As already discussed earlier, Sun represents the Prana Energy in our system. With a well-placed sun, the native will have a good build, robust energy, bones, spine, and eyesight. If it is weak or afflicted the native will have very poor eyesight, will experience constant headaches, erratic blood circulation in the body, prone to fevers, blood pressure, even baldness, and a weaker immune system altogether. That is why it is advised to do practices like Surya Kriya and Surya Namaskar for those having a weaker immune system to stay healthy and sustain it for longer periods. 

Moon –

In Astrology, Moon is considered a cold planet and governs Vata (air and space) and Kapha (Water and Earth). If you have a certain illness or problems in blood, tonsils, chest, and breast or glands, known that the Vata and Kapha are in a state of imbalance within your system. If Moon is weak or afflicted, the native can develop insomnia or difficulty in sleeping, extreme lethargy, and drowsiness, blood pressure problems, lung problems, anaemia, general weakness, etc. 

Zodiacs and Health

The Zodiac Signs— Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio, Pisces, and Sagittarius are believed to have a weaker immunity compared to other Zodiac Signs. Taurus people like to follow a routine and tend to exercise daily. However, they can become lethargic and weak-willed which leads to a weaker immune system and taking health for granted. Similarly, a Gemini is very prone to catching colds, coughs. They are also susceptible to developing sleep-related problems and insomnia which can impact their health very significantly and in a bad way. Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio are all emotional water signs. They can be easily depressed and swayed away by the cruel outside situations. In addition, Pisces is like a sponge and a strong empath which is affected very negatively by their outside circumstances. 

No matter what Zodiac Sign you might, every one of you should take care of your health as these are challenging times and won’t vanish in a jiffy. Mortality hangs in front of our faces and we see it every day and hear about it too due to Corona deaths. Take care of your health by doing proper exercises, going on morning walks, and eating a clean and healthy diet majority of the time.
