Medical Astrology or Medical Horoscope came one step closer to being scrutinized by science even though their study is quite shallow from an astrological standards. Here are my thoughts on this important research and what needs to be done before they can find the real meaningful associations.
Columbia University scientists investigated the relationship between birth month and disease risk and found 55 diseases that correlated with the season of birth.
This was a very primitive form of study but extensive in at least the correlation linking the Sun and susceptibility to diseases. From an astrological perspective, this is very primitive as they have not taken any consideration with respect to the years which might have slow moving planets in one sign for a long time as well as aspects or other planets in signs. All they took was the Sun position.
They tried to trivialize astrological rules by trying to attribute it to seasons but then December stuck out as quite resistant to diseases. Not much sunlight affected Oct Nov and Jan but not Dec? We are happy that at least it is a step in the right direction but even if we don’t take the traditional interpretation into consideration, we should take all the planets and aspects into consideration also.
Scientists are trying to pass off this connection as being seasonal and more to do with the four major seasons rather than any astrological link. they quoted Hippocrates as having mentioned the season connection almost 2500 years ago.
What they conveniently forget to include was the fact that Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is regarded as the father of medicine, insisted his students study astrology, and his famous quote, “He who does not understand astrology is not a doctor but a fool!“
