ASTROLOGY AND AYURVEDA

Astrology and Ayurveda , both are the parts of Vedas . Both Ayurveda and Vedic astrology have their roots in the same Indian Vedic tradition. Both, the science of correlation of heavenly bodies with human existence, both these sciences are greatly intertwined with each other, and often one of them corroborates or even supplements the other. For this reason, several Ayurvedicvaidyas have looked upon Astrology as a supplement to their prescriptions, and several astrologists have tried to rectify planetary maladies with the help of Ayurveda.

Astrology is the science of planetary movements. There are about thirty slokas on astrology in the Rig Veda, fourty four in Yajura Veda and one hundred and sixty two in Atharva Veda. It is the science of the influence of the planets and stars on human and terrestrial affairs. In the Indian scriptures, Jyotish Shastra is one of the six disciplines required for the proper understanding of the Vedas, which are known as the Vedangas. The other five Vedangas are:-Shiksha – Study of Phonetics, Chanda – Study of Meter, Vyakarana – Study of Grammar, Nirukta – Study of Etymology, Kalpa – Study of the Rituals

Ayurveda is part of AtharvaVeda. There are three texts on AyurvedaCharaka Samhita, the Sushruta Samhita and the Bhela Samhita.Ayurveda is the system of Indian healing that has been practised in India for thousands of years.

DOSHAS IN AYURVEDA AND CLASSIFICATION OF SUNSIGNS IN ASTROLOGY


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, in Astrology are divided in these three Doshas:

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. In Vedic astrology, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are not used, and so Mars remains the ruler of Scorpio.

Kapha : Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces. These are the earth and water signs not assigned to vata and pitta.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DOSHA'S:

• A vata type is generally slim (thin), has difficulty concentrating, feels the cold and has a great urge to be quickly satisfied in his needs. He eats quickly, chews his food badly and eats at irregular hours.

• A kapha type is often corpulent, slow, and has a calm, thoughtful character. He eats a lot and enjoys his food.

• A pitta type has a well-balanced figure, likes action and can be hot tempered. Because his life is so busy, he may feel food is not very important.

Vata means wind and has the elements of ether and air. Pitta means bile and has the elements of fire and water. Kapha means phlegm and has the elements of water and earth. Each Dosha has its natural qualities, and as with the Gunas of Ayurveda there are foods that are associated with each Dosha:

Qualities:

• Vata: cold, dry, light, moving, flighty, spiritual, thin

• Pitta: hot, oily, light, fiery, vibrant, successful, aggressive

• Kapha: cool, oily, heavy, stable, slow, methodical, greedy

Foods/Tastes:

• Vata: bitter, astringent, pungent/spicy, raw

• Pitta: sour, pungent/spicy, salty, fetid, warm

• Kapha: sweet, salty, sour, creamy, heavily cooked

In our birth charts the Doshas of our Ascendant, its ruling planet, and the ruler of the sixth house (health, disease, and hygeine) can give us a heads-up to potential imbalances in our bodies.

Medical astrology scientifically studies planetary movements and their effect on human constitutions and lives. Astrology is based on the concept that each planet is intrinsically related to a specific body tissue and that the various planetary movements and their positions in relation to time exert powerful influences on your mind, body and consciousness, directly affecting your physical and mental health. It is to be noted that sun, rahu& ketu are nodal points exactly opposite each other and are given the status of planets according to the Indian system of Astrology. They are important indicators of spiritual and / or materialistic tendencies.

There are Nine Planets (as per ancient literature in Jyotish), which has got a capacity to rule over our life. They occupy different places in our Natal chart (JanmaKundali). According to their specific location in natal chart, they decide several factors with reference to our life viz. Our Nature and Behaviour (Swabhava and Prakruti), Disorders (Roga/Vyadhi) etc. So by looking at ones natal chart one can predict several things with special reference to Ayurveda as well.

Like Ayurveda, Astrology also accepts the therapy of PANCHAMAHABHOOTAS. Therefore the Nine planets about whom we have discussed before can also be co-related with there five Basic Elelments and they are as follows:


Planets Panchabhautic Dhatu/Updhatu Body part represented Component
Sun (Surya) Fire Ashti(Bones) Soul Tej
Moon (Chandra) Water Rakta(Blood) Mind jala
