of the methods of Vedic astrology as well as Ayurvedic healing. No one need be surprised at the relationship between the two . Ayurveda, as Vedic astrology, originates in the Vedic traditions. ..., Vaidyas are devoted to Atharva Veda, because it has dealt wit h the subject of Medicine. Prescribing donation, propitiatory rites, offerings, auspicious rites,oblations, observance of rules, expiations, fasting, incantatio ns, etc.., and medicine for promotion of life.- Charak Samhita sutra 30-slok 21 ----The 3 Body doshas are : Vata, Pitta, and Kapha sutra 1 -slok 57 -
----Vata, Pitta and Kapha are eternally present in the body of living beings eit her as normal or abnormal. The wise person should know them. sutra 18 -slok 48 Similarly Prasna Marga describes —
-----The tridoshas are ruled by the seven planets thus: The Sun — pitta; Moon-vat a and kapha; Mars — pitta; Mercury — vata, pitta and kapha; Jupiter — kapha ; Venus — ka pha and vata; and Saturn — vata. Ch.11 slok- 4
Ch.11 Slok 3 Stanza 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- 3 Both ayurveda and Vedic astrology have their roots in the same Vedic tradition. This tradition forms a unit. The various methods rooted in this tradition suppl ement 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 th e tridoshas- vata, pitta and kapha. As Ayurveda is based on the three constitutions, the three dosha's, these thr ee dosha's are called vata, pitta and kapha. Vata corresponds to air, pitta to f ire, and kapha to earth and water. The astrological signs can then be divided as follows: Vata : Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius. Virgo is placed here becaus e it is ruled by Mercury, which is an air planet in Vedic astrology. Capricorn i s mentioned here because it is ruled by the vata planet Saturn. Pitta : Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Scorpio. Scorpio is pitta because the classi c 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 dosh a. 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 a scendant degree. Suppose someone has Saturn in the first, this is a strong indic ation for a vata constitution. If a person has Jupiter in the first then that pe rson 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 lor d of the sixth house placed. If Mercury is in the sixth house and in Pisces, tha t points to either a vata (Mercury is a vataplanet) and/or a kapha (Pisces is a kapha 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 influence on the human body. The questions we have to ask here are in which sign is the M oon placed and is the Moon in conjunction with other planets. The strongest planet in the horoscope is important. Often, this concerns a plane t placed in its own sign or is exalted and placed in a house where it can develo p its energy (for example houses 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10 or 11). If a certain planet i n the horoscope is prominent, then that planet will color all the aspects of the life of the person involved, including his constitution. Every individual is constituted of the three doshas, but each and every individu al inherit these doshas in different proportions resulting in different body con stitution. 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-kaph a type, etc. To determine the prominent nature or Dosha through astrology, we sh ould measure the strength of planet, house and house lord. According to the rule s of Astrology, we should take into consideration the planet placed in house-sig n, placement of the house lord in house-sign. Thus, by knowing the strength and the nature of a planet & sign, we can establish the type of the dosha causing th e 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 sign denotes Pitta and Kapha Dosha. So this individual can suffer from diseases caus ed by Pitta and Kapha. In this chart Jupiter is 2nd and 5th lord. In Chalit Chak ra, Ketu has gone to 5th house, so effected areas for diseases are 2nd and 5th h ouse. We can now relate the body parts indicated by these houses. According to t he rules of Astrology, Jupiter is weak by its placement in Dusathan but Mars is strong 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 aggrava ted the diseases. Planets and Signs which governs the Doshas:
