Ch.11 Slok 3Stanza 3. — The seven Dhatus, viz., asthi (bone), raktha (blood), majja (muscle),twak (skin), vasa (flesh), sukla (seminal fluid) and vasmasa (nervous material)are governed respectively by the Sun, the Moon, etc. Ch.11 slok- 3Both ayurveda and Vedic astrology have their roots in the same Vedic tradition.This tradition forms a unit. The various methods rooted in this tradition supplement each other and re- attuned to each other.The panchamahabhootas- air, fire,water, earth and space gives rise to three fundamental bio-energies known as the tridoshas- vata, pitta and kapha.As Ayurveda is based on the three constitutions, the three dosha's, these three dosha's are called vata, pitta and kapha. Vata corresponds to air, pitta to fire, and kapha to earth and water. The astrological signs can then be divided asfollows:Vata : Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius. Virgo is placed here because it is ruled by Mercury, which is an air planet in Vedic astrology. Capricorn is mentioned here because it is ruled by the vata planet Saturn.Pitta : Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Scorpio. Scorpio is pitta because the classic ruler of Scorpio is the fire planet Mars.Kapha : Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces. These are the earth and water signs not assi
 
gned to vata and pitta.Astrology can also play a role in establishing the constitution or dosha.1. To define the constitution we use the ascendant and the lord of the ascendant. If the ascendant is Aries (a pitta sign), and the lord of the ascendant (Mars)is in Scorpio (a pitta sign), it will point to a pitta constitution.2.Planets in the first are also important, especially if they are close to the ascendant degree. Suppose someone has Saturn in the first, this is a strong indication for a vata constitution. If a person has Jupiter in the first then that person tends to gain weight and may have a kapha constitution. 3.We also need to know which planets are in the sixth house and where is the lord of the sixth house placed. If Mercury is in the sixth house and in Pisces, that points to either a vata (Mercury is a vataplanet) and/or a kapha (Pisces is akapha sign) constitution.4. Another factor that plays a role in the analysis is the position of the Moon.The Moon, because she gives shape to earthly matters, is an important influenceon the human body. The questions we have to ask here are in which sign is the Moon placed and is the Moon in conjunction with other planets.The strongest planet in the horoscope is important. Often, this concerns a planet placed in its own sign or is exalted and placed in a house where it can develop its energy (for example houses 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 or 11). If a certain planet in the horoscope is prominent, then that planet will color all the aspects of thelife of the person involved, including his constitution.Every individual is constituted of the three doshas, but each and every individual inherit these doshas in different proportions resulting in different body constitution. According to the concept of Ayurveda, there are seven body types:* Mono Types – (vata, pitta and kapha predominant)* Dual Types – (vata-pitta, pitta-kapha or kapha-vata)* Equal Types – (vata, pitta and kapha in equal proportions)Most individuals are mixed types. So we can have a vata-kapha type, a pitta-kapha type, etc. To determine the prominent nature or Dosha through astrology, we should measure the strength of planet, house and house lord. According to the rules of Astrology, we should take into consideration the planet placed in house-sign, placement of the house lord in house-sign. Thus, by knowing the strength andthe nature of a planet & sign, we can establish the type of the dosha causing the disease.For example, if the sign in the 6th house is Aries and Jupiter is in 6th house,20 Feb 1977, 01:30AM, Allahabad (UP)Ketu is also in the 6th house which acts like Mars. Mars, Jupiter and Aries signdenotes Pitta and Kapha Dosha. So this individual can suffer from diseases caused by Pitta and Kapha. In this chart Jupiter is 2nd and 5th lord. In Chalit Chakra, Ketu has gone to 5th house, so effected areas for diseases are 2nd and 5th house. We can now relate the body parts indicated by these houses. According to the rules of Astrology, Jupiter is weak by its placement in Dusathan but Mars isstrong and auspicious being Lagna Lord and is exalted. So the sufferings from th
 
e diseases will be less. If Mars was in 8th or 12th house, it would have aggravated the diseases.Planets and Signs which governs the Doshas: ElementSignsPlanetsVaatAirGemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn, AquariusMercury, Saturn, Venus (secondary), RahuPittaFireAries, Leo, Sagittarius, ScorpioMars, the Sun, Jupiter (secondary), KetuKaphaEarth & WaterTaurus, Cancer, PiscesVenus (primary), Jupiter (primary) Saturn (secondary) Diseases caused by Vaat :Cracking in soles, pain in foot, foot drop, numbness in feet, pain in ankles, stiffness in ankles, cramps in calf, sciatica, tearing pain in knees, stiffness
