The Mystic Connection Between Ayurveda & Vedic Astrology

Ayurveda is an age-old system of medicinally healing different kinds of ailments and sicknesses naturally, with the help of Vedic culture, which originated in India many centuries ago. The word Ayurveda is a composition of two words together ‘Ayur’ means ‘Life’ and ‘Veda’ means ‘Knowledge’ or ‘Science’. Therefore, it is not just the medium to cure sickness; it has a bigger role to play as it is the Science of life. In recent time Ayurveda has resurged in the world as a type of alternative medicine and has swiftly gained acceptance, recognition, and popularity amongst people all across the globe.

In Ayurveda, it is believed that plants (herbs) receive radiation from the source of life on earth which is the Sun and in some exceptional cases, Moon as well. On one hand, where sunlight gives life to these plants, it is strongly believed that Moon is the source of nourishment for them. Therefore, those diseases that are the result of the bad or side effects of bad radiation of a person, they can be healed by these herbs and medicine with ayurvedic healing powers. We can also say that Ayurveda is known to cures or heals the body on an astral level for a person and not the physical level which is extremely essential in order to get rid of the sickness or ailment from its very root.

Astrology and Ayurveda have a strong and deep connection between them for centuries together. As per the Vedic astrology, there are strong indications of various lingering health issues hidden in the birth chart of a person which can be seen only after a thorough and deep analysis of the horoscope or natal chart. Once we are able to find this underlying premature health issue of risk with the Help of astrology then further it can be cured and healed with the use of herbs and medicine mentioned in Ayurveda before-hand so that the condition of the native does not escalate further. Ayurveda also believes in the Color therapy and are often suggested various people avoid the use of certain colors in one’s life similar to the astrology. In order to get a deeper impact of that color on a certain someone, the deep and proper analysis or reading of the natal chart is necessary which will reveal it further.

It is mentioned in our ancient history about the ‘Ayurvedacharyas’ who used to exist and were read and learned on both Ayurveda and Astrology and through the use of both of them together (Ayurveda and astrology), they were able of predicting the forthcoming health issues and risks of a person well in advance and prescribe an Ayurvedic treatment to follow accordingly.

On one hand, where astrology majorly represents the balance of a person’s karmic graph (both good and bad) while Ayurveda on the other deals with the astral healing of the body caused by the imbalance in the ‘Doshas’; primarily three: ‘Vat’ which means wind, ‘Pitta’ which means Heat and ‘Cough’ which stands for phlegm. The three Doshas are also commonly known as the ‘Tridosh’. Astrology majorly deals with the Ascendant (Lagna), Moon and the Sun where Ascendant stands for the general body strength and decides whether the native is strong or weak. Sun is connected to the Pitta and Moon gets the custody of the Cough. It is on the basis of the placement of the above-mentioned trio that decides the health of the native and in getting the correct remedies and treatment through Ayurveda.

An astrologer who also has a good knowledge of Ayurveda (Ayurvedacharya) can help people cute problems related to their karmic effects clubbed with their ‘Tridosh’ (Three Doshas) long before they can get anywhere close to becoming a serious affair.

To explain it briefly let‘s take a few examples such as below with relation to the planets and their positions. 

Venus

If someone is facing or may face health problems (in future) related to the planet Venus then with the deep and thorough horoscope reading, the deep and thorough reading of the natal chart can help predict the same well ahead of time in order to do the damage control. On the off chance that Venus is moving in retrograde motion or is wrongly placed in a house in the natal chart of an individual then issues related to the lower abdominal region of the body along with multiple infections in the chest or throat will be experienced by the native.

Saturn and Rahu

On the off chance that a certain someone has gone through or will face health-related problems in future especially the ones related to the planets Saturn and Rahu then it is possible to eradicate it from the roots only with deep analysis and reading of the natal chart of that specific native. Just in case, if Saturn and Rahu are in Retrograde motion or are placed in the wrong House then the native is expected to have issues related to the chest such as, asthma, joint pains, and major health issues and diseases that are related to stomach.

Therefore, to conclude we can say that Astrology and Ayurveda share an extremely strong and centuries-old bond together that when working together can help[ an individual many hurdles and obstacle on the level of physical fitness, health and well-being of a person and will also help them improve the quality of life for them for a bright future.
