Astrology and the Science of Numbers (Numerology)
Can numbers represent Reality? Yes, said Pythagorus. In fact, the mysteries of the Universe and all sciences are contained in numbers! Do we not say that everything is one & do we not use ad infinitum in our talk? They are numbers!
Relationship between Astrology & Gem Therapy
Medical Astrology finds out the causative factors of diseases and can heal diseases pronounced incurable by conventional medicine. Gem Therapy is an integral part of Medical Astrology.
Heart attack is defined as a case of coronary thrombosis. This happens when the heart is unable to to pump blood efficiently to all parts of the body. There are 20 kinds of heart diseases that affect the heart muscles, the valves of the heart or its inner or outer lining. There are a number of functional disorders of the heart. High B P (hypertension) and hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis) are severe types. Rheumatic fever is also a type of heart disease.
The 4th and 5th signs of the Zodiac rule over our heart. The 4th house from the Ascendant rules the heart. The causative planets for heart disease are Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Sun, Saturn and Rahu. Since planets in the 11th house of the Zodiac, Aquarius, aspect Leo, Aquarius is also considered to be a 'heart disease' sign. Afflictions to the 4th house, Leo or Aquarius will result in heart disease.
Another causative factor is the Sun in Cancer, Aquarius or Pisces. Any three planets in Leo or Aquarius heavily afflicted, the Moon in Gemini or Leo, the Ascendant in a watery sign & lord of the Ascendant occupying a dusthana, (the 6, 8 &12 houses), the signs Leo/Aquarius and the 4th house from the Ascendant afflicted by Mars, Rahu or Saturn, Saturn afflicting Aquarius are other astro-pathogenic factors.
In Gem Therapy, Emerald, Moonstone and Yellow Sapphire are used for this particular disease. Red Coral is also used as an additional gem in acute cases.

Astrology, Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda
Awakening to a New Holistic Health Awareness
Only after undergoing an inner conversion do people start on a holistic health programme. This conversion may come naturally in the fulness of time or by coming into contact with a holistic health adept or Yoga teacher. But more commonly, the inner transformation takes place only when people have reached the limits of suffering or when the shadow of some terminal illness looms large on the horizon. Fear, they say, is the beginning of wisdom.
Pain is the first born of the Inconscience And thy body's dumb original base!
Whatever way the change occurs, it takes the form of two inner processes; a new attitude towards one's body and a feeling of responsibility for one's own health.
Man's greatest enemy - Thanatos (Death-instinct)
The notion that what a person loves most is his own body has been proved erroneous by Freud. Freud, who declared that pleasure seeking (hedonism) was the basic instinct in man, modified his view later. He came to the conclusion that along with Life-instinct (known as Eros) man had apparently a powerful Death-instinct (known as Thanatos) which manifested itself as Self-hate & aggressive behaviour. He showed that not all accidents were really accidents. The accident-proneness of the victims produced by the unconscious death wish they had cherished was the cause behind some accidents. Research has indicated enough evidence for vicious & insidious forms of self-hate in man. We can understand how self-hate operates on the level of the Unconscious if we observe the way many people abuse their own stomachs, lungs & other vital organs, and the way some people bring ruin upon themselves by yielding to drug addiction & alcoholism. This self-hate acts as an inhibiting factor for most individuals. Success can be achieved, said Dr Maxwell Maltz, if this inhibitive factor is removed from the mind. Most people are unaware of it & drift through life unaware of the self-harm they do. Some of them wake up from this unconscious drifting and begin to have a new attitude - an attitude of love, friendliness and peace towards themselves & their brethren. It actually indicates the dawn of true love for one's higher Self known as the Atman.
Thanatos was known in Vedanta as Thamas (the destructive element in man). Thamas is destructive and self-destructive. By yogic sadhana alone can this Thamas or Thanatos be destroyed.
Yet till evil is slain in its own home And light invades the world's inconscient base And perished is the Adversary force He (the Saviour) must still labour on, his work halfdone! (Aurobindo)
A good site where you can get quality information about Holistic Medicine is www.holistic-alt.com
Ayurveda averrs that Rajas (humanity) and Thamas (bestiality) are the pathogenic factors. Satwa (divinity) is non-pathogenic. So if we take only foods which are Satwic (like fruits and vegetables - total 400 gms per day) no disease can assail us.

Astrology & Yoga Therapy
The Evolution of Medicine & the Three Eras of Medicine
Allopathic Medicine or "Physical Medicine" belongs to the first era. It is Cartesian and creates a dichotomy between mind & body. Treating a disease is like fixing a part of the machine.
The second era of medicine refers to 'Mind-Body medicine." It became popular in the 1960s with the advent of Meditation, imagery, hypnosis & bio-feedback. Mind and body are interconnected by messenger molecules and these molecules are invoked to accomplish the healing process.
The third era of Medicine refers to "Transpersonal Medicine". It became popular in 1990s with the advent of group support and spirituality to heal.
Yoga therapy supplements the second and the third eras of medicine.
Yoga therapy complements medical technology with a holistic system of health care that addresses the triune problems - physical, mental & spiritual. The author of Yoga Sutras, Patanjal, defined it as the Science of the Mind. Mind is the root cause of bondage and in order to redeem us from the thraldom of the mind, we have to annilhilate the mind. Extirpation of thought waves is Yoga. And it is through teaching us to control our mind, our desires, and our reactions to stress, that yoga can fundamentally help us. It is based on the tripod of Life - Body, Mind & Self & the three levels of Being- Doing, Thinking & pure Being.
Astrology determines the time which is auspicious for taking medicines and along with Yoga Therapy can nurse one to back health.
Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry (Tantra)
Tantra is based on the Coiled Serpentine Energy known as the Kundalini. Once the Golden Serpent rises, your thinking will change. Your perceptions will change. Then you need not rely on books. Then your mind will become your book. This wonderful phenomenon called the mind is a repository of endless knowledge. Once the Kundalini via the Sushumna rises, we reach a transcendental plane. The main aim of the Yogi is to open the Sushumna. On the path of the Sushmna are the Chakras, dynamoes of cosmic energy in man.
She sports as Universal Power in the Macrocosm; and in the microcosm as the coiled Serpent Power!
Infinite Power of the Absolute art Thou!
The Cause of the Universe as Maya
The entire Creation is Thy Play
Thy blessing is Bliss Absolute!
The essence of all sciences art Thou
All women Thy manifestations!
The visible Universe Thou art
And the dormant Serpentine Power!
Astro-Therapy used in Vedic Astrology is Tantric. The images of the planetary energies are propitiated on the days assigned to them.
