Article 76: Medical Astrology– Understanding Alzheimer Disease and Dementia from Vedic Astrology

It was for long, I wanted to write on Medical Astrology. I have written many articles on Entrepreneurship and Business Astrology and this time I thought of doing my own research on the disease Alzheimer and Dementia from Vedic Astrology. Please note that this is an article which I am writing out of my own analysis on the aforementioned disease. This should be read as just thoughts from a spiritual plane and is no way concerned with any medical prescriptions or medicines and neither is a substitute for any medical prescriptions followed by any individual. This article should also not be treated as an alternate form of medicine. This are just my thoughts, which can help to understand the disease form the Medical Astrology point of view.

To give brief about the Alzheimer’s disease, it is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s. Though out the world, almost more million people suffer from this disease and many of them have dementia, which is caused by Alzheimer.

As I continued with my research based on the planetary movements of cosmic planets and understanding the various symptoms of the disease, I tried to analyse the same, based on the position of Astrological Planets in a birth chart of the individual. During my research on the subject, I tried to focus on just one point and that is – ‘forgetting’. Well, that’s the final thing, which happens in the disease. So, the key point amongst all the symptoms is ‘Memory Loss’.

In Vedic Astrology the planet which is connected with memory is ‘Mercury’. This is an extraordinary planet as it deals with many aspects in our life i.e Communication, Memory, Trade and Exports and much more. The mentioned planet ‘Mercury’, as per vedic astrology helps in our speech, the way, it is put forward to the public, memory a human possesses and much more. So, I feel that placement of Mercury in a birth chart is very important to understand the disease from a spiritual plane.

Now lets also have a look into the Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology which is ruled by planet Mercury. These are Ashlesha, Jyeshta and Revati. The Symbol of Ashlesha is Naga devata and the symbol is Serpent. The Symbol of Jyestha is Indra and the Symbol is Earring. The symbol of Revati is Fish and the Devata is Pushan. If planet ‘Mercury’ is afflicted or sits in a bad position in one’s birth chart, then it creates the chances of having disorders in the nervous system. Also, we need to check if any of the Nakshatras of Mercury do have a malefic effect in the birth chart. There is also another astrological planet which needs to be considered for understanding the aforementioned disease is the planet Saturn. The reason, why I thought, the role of Saturn is important, because this planet deals with chronic illness and degeneration. Saturn is connected to illness which generally do not get healed easily and there is a degeneration in the body. Since this degeneration occurs in the nervous system, hence Saturn afflicting Planet Mercury in a horoscope is likely to create a problem with one’s remembrance and speech.

Now the question lies, if the Nakshatras ruled by Saturn also plays a role and if Planet Mercury or Planet Moon sitting in an afflicted position in these Nakshatras trigger such a situation. While primarily, it may be stated that there may be various reasons, but another reason which comes to my mind is if Saturn afflicts Mercury in a Saturn Nakshatra and Moon also remains afflicted. That’s a situation, when triggered by any malefic afflictions by Planet Rahu and Planet Ketu may lead to Dementia and Alzheimer disease. So, what are these Nakshatras which are of the planet Saturn? These are:  Pushya, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadra. It also needs a detailed analysis as Pushya Nakshatra is a nourishment nakshatra and it nourishes the planet which occupies this Nakshatra. So, by that, I mean that not all the nakshatras and the position of planet Mercury may lead to the cause of dementia or Alzheimer disease.

In my understanding and out my own research, D30 chart or Trimsamsa also plays a role to understand the misfortunes that may be created and in this discussion the disease, which we are discussing.

The other factors that need to be kept in mind is the position of the 6th lord in D1 chart with Mercury and also its relation with the Planet Saturn. Secondly, is the 8th Lord in D1 chart is also connected with the Planet Saturn or Mercury in any one of the Saturn or Mercury Nakshatras? These and other details need to understood and properly analysed to understand, if an individual may have or likely to have such a disease like dementia or Alzheimer. Since, I have started doing a research on the above subject from the Medical Astrology point of view, I feel I can come out with more extensive Articles based on my own research in future. Till then, I thank you for visiting my web-page on Astrology and your comments will be a welcome.

At the end, I just want to say that Stay Happy and Stay Blessed.

This is all from me in this article. Hope you have liked my personal thoughts and opinions.

Throughout the world, there is exceptional suffering by humans due to a deadly disease called Cancer. In many countries Cancer causes the highest number of deaths, second to cardio-vascular diseases. This disease has now become a house-hold phenomenon and with less cure and people who recovered again, gets back the disease sometimes. Early detection leads to a cure from this disease.

As per World Health Organization, about 8.8 million people worldwide died from cancer in 2015. That is nearly 1 in 6 of all global deaths. It is stated that around US$1.16 trillion is the estimated total annual economic cost of cancer in 2010.

I was trying to analysis from my knowledge as what are main factors which can lead to Cancer and can any solutions be done to prevent Cancer with the help of Vedic Astrology. After analyzing I found out that Cancer disease is an outgrowth of cells in a very rapid way and that’s due to multiplication of cells and this has connection with the planet Rahu and also Jupiter. The Planet Jupiter is all about expansion in a good way and if we speak about cells in one’s body, which if starts multiplying swiftly, may lead to serious health problem. For Cancer Ascendant and Libra Ascendant, the planet Jupiter is the lord of the 6th House and now consider a case, wherein these planets sit in the Ascendant with astrological planet Rahu, it is a concern as Rahu is likely to blow up things in a rapid way and sitting with the 6th Lord Jupiter; the planet for expansion, may lead to Cancer.

The disease may also take place when 6th Lord is placed with Planet Rahu, Ketu or Saturn in 8th House, which also shows serious trouble with one’s health. 8th house is for long term diseases and connection with 6th lord in 8th house with planet Rahu or planet Saturn may be another cause for concern.

Cancer type of diseases are also caused when 12th lord goes to the 8th house. Since 12th lord is also for terminal illness, its going to the 8th house means long term diseases. Apart from these there are several factors which gives rise to different types of chronic diseases and illness.

But the question is how can one get relief and feel better based on this cosmic science.

I am trying to analyze it in my research and remedial solutions may depend on the planets which are creating this negative yoga in the horoscope. Another form of Karma dissolve is to help other people suffering from the same disease. That helps, if done with a pure heart. Reading spiritual scriptures and having proper diet is a key to reduce the impact of long term diseases.

Keep yourself healthy, stay fit & smile a lot.

The above write up is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers or others. While Destiny is hard work and luck, we wish everyone great success in one’s good endeavors. The above article is based on my experience of reading astrology subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
