There was a time when astrology was an accepted as a pure science and was a part of medical diagnoses, as much as were a patient’s physical symptoms. It’s hard to say whether we’ve stopped believe in leaving in harmony with the cosmos and planet, as many are no longer think about living in harmony with cosmos… and think only on money and success! Some of us consider themselves too advanced scientifically to think that movements in the stars and planets might have a serious impact on our daily lives and our health.
But are we right? even as a very modern and technological civilization, we actually don’t know much about the universe and about the real energetic connections on it, so can someone say that man, with his limited brain, can truly comprehend the connections and formation of the universe, or how he fits within it. Western civilization is understanding and believing.

Astrology is one of the most important historical contexts in which the ancient astronomy developed. From the Babylon period – they carefully assembled tablets of the position of Venus, as it was believed to denote omens for weather, war, famine, diseases, rulers and kingdoms. The famous Claudius Ptolemy composed a time table, believing that astrology could be placed on a rational footing, despite being a conjectural art like medicine.
That days, many people around the world believed that astrology meant that horoscopes were cast for new-born children, prospective spouses and political enemies, public buildings were opened and marriage and other ceremonies conducted on auspicious days. Many records of astrological practice can be found from the Roman period and physicians routinely consulted astrological charts as part of the diagnostic process and fortune telling.
If you want to understand Astrology we can look at this for instance – every sign of the zodiac was considered to rule a part of the human body: the Sagittarius ruled the thighs, Pisces the feet, and so on.
If the moon is in the zodiac ruling a particular part of the body, bloodletting from that part was to be avoided, since the attraction of the moon can cause excessive bleeding.
Numerous medical manuscripts and almanacs include the figure of the ‘zodiac man’ as a reminder of the specific influence of the moon position in the sky.
As said, Astrology is one of the most important historical contexts in which the ancient astronomy developed and as we all know ( and many doctors believe) that healing is not only medical, it’s also include mental approach and psychologically aspect – it’s up to you to decide if you can find healing energies during a session with an astrologer or any other spiritual healer, or using Crystal healing for your needs
