Medical Astrology is a branch of Astrology that utilizes the horoscope to identify weak areas of the body that may be predisposed to illness as well as potential treatment options. If you think it’s hard to find a good astrologer, medical astrologers are even more of a rare find. Imagine having to study both and Astrology … and mastering both! Believe it or not, that’s exactly what doctors were required to do until about the 17th century in medieval Europe.

“He who does not understand Astrology is not a doctor, but a fool.”
