Astrology is one of the ancient sciences that have been generally debunked by the Medical fraternity. Historically there is evidence that Babylonians and Assyrians priest used to study the signs and omens and used Shamash- the Sun God and Adad- the Storm God. Astrology further developed in Rome and Greece. After the Greeks, it was the Arabs who studied astrology. Indian astrology has been a highly developed science and the astrological chart is plotted when the child is born, with meticulous care. It is only in recent times that medical astrology has developed and astrologers are able to tell what a disease a person is likely to suffer from.

Several doctors who study astrology feel that it is possible to predict the genetic tendency of a child to develop a kind of disease. Astrology can also predict casualty in an individual. A Czechoslovakian Gynecologist, Dr. Eugene Jonas has used astrology to predict monthly fertility in women. This method has been found to be 85% accurate. When this method is combined with the rhythm method, the reliability rates rise up to 98 %. It may be fair to say that Medical Astrology might be able to point out one’s mental disposition and susceptibility to disease.
