Sohini Sastri brings Vedic Astrology's medical benefits to people
Astrology is as much a science as it is an art and only a very few are able to really master it. Those who do have faith in astrology always consider the position of the sun and the planets to understand issues with their health, their personalities, and to make predictions about the future.

The ancient Greek doctor Hippocrates is said to have once made a statement, “A physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” Such is the deep bond between astrology and health that very few fully actually understand. One such rare person is Sohini Sastri, one of the best astrologers in India who is a leading practitioner of Vedic Astrology and uses it to help improve the health of her followers.

“No one can ignore health if they want to live a happy, fit, and prosperous life. If a person is suffering from health issues, it eventually breaks the whole cycle of life. One cannot study, work or even earn to their full potential if they are not healthy. To sustain in this competitive world we should all be focusing on our health. Considering the current pollution, workload, contaminated and spurious food, pesticides and junk food habits, we all need to take extra care of our health. Vedic Astrology for medical purposes can empower one to ensure that they are always in the pink of their health,” says  Sohini Sastri, the best astrologer in Delhi.

Sohini Sastri says that Astrology can help any person to live a healthy and fit life. She believes that each of our organs, their anatomical structure, and body parts are inherently influenced by astrological elements. As such, we can predict certain things about our health and take corrective actions to safeguard our health.

“The 2nd, 6th, 8th, and 12th houses in one’s horoscope play a major role in indicating health issues. If any of them is influenced by malefic planets then the native will face health trouble and may also suffer from related medical problems if any planet posited in those houses is weak or debilitated,” says Sohini Sastri.

She further elaborates that the 6th house denotes sickness, 8th house surgery, death, and 12th house hospitalization. If the sub lord of 12th cusp is in 6, the house of disease, and if the sub lord is in the constellation of the planet occupying or owning 6 or 8 or 12, it is certain that one will have the defect from the time when the significators conjointly operate. If the sub lord of the ascendant is in the constellation of the significator of 6 or 8 or 12 then one suffers from disease or the danger of hospitalization.

Sohini Sastri has prepared the following list that has the planets and organ/ body part/ health issues which they represent.

Sun: Stomach, heart, head, back, right eye of a man, left eye of a woman, vitality, joint, sinus, migraine, high fever etc.

“According to Vedic astrology, planets and our birth sign is closely related to human chakras and organs. Planets and Horoscopes can help identify Chakras' energy, physical, mental, emotional strength and diseases in the human body. Every planet is connected with respective chakras in our astral body,” says Sohini Sastri.

“Chakras indicate qualities of a person through ruling planets. If any planet is weak, respective chakra associated with that planet would also be weak. This also means that the specific chakra energy is debilitated; hence health issues related to that chakra are caused. We call this method as AstakaVarga vedic astrology,” Sastri further elaborates.
