According to Vedic astrology, Sun and the Moon relates to the Vat – (wind), Pitta (heat) and cough (phlegm). The lagna or the ascendants of the body deals with the general strength and the weaknesses of the body that can cause harm to the body in the long run.
Charak Samhita is a famous granth ( text ) on Ayurveda written long back by the legendary physician Charak. He has described in this book that Ayurvedacharya, while attending a new patient, he or she should always keep exact depth of disease and the time to get cure for the same. In astrology, the 6th house and its lords is the main reason for disease in a person. 8th house and its lord denotes the longevity of the disease and 12th house and its lord denotes the time, money and suffering of the person
There are other factors also which has to be considered for seeing the influence of malefic planets on these houses and the effect of weak benefic planets to help the native or the subject. Apart from the above mentioned information, the dash and the mahadasha of the planets ahs also to be analyzed for the proper diagnosis of disease.
Suppose, if the person is of Taurus lagna and the Venus is debilitated in the 5th House and afflicted by Rahu, the first condition of negativity is fulfilled by the weak lagna and its lord. When the lagna of a person is weak it denotes weak fortune and misfortune. The 6th House denotes the disease occupied by the weak Sun and the Mercury. If there is an exchange between the lord of 5th and 6th Mercury and Venus, it again indicates the complexity of the chart. As the lagna lord is weak and its exchange with the 6th disease lord Mercury will not go well with the birth chart.
Therefore for analysis of disease it is essential have a proper analysis of 6th house and the 8th house of the birth chart.
