The 12 Houses of astrology are symbolic of the all the departments that make up human life. The planets and zodiac signs will manifest themselves most strongly in the sphere of life represented by the House in which they fall on your chart (and also in the House which they rule; more on House Rulerships below). Medical astrology, or iatromathematics as it was called in ancient Greece, is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body and diseases with the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac and other celestial bodies. One of the earliest written references that gave descriptions of the birth signs and related body parts dates back.

You may be a long-time follower of astrology, but it may have gotten past you that each zodiac sign was (at least at one point) believed to have a body part that it rules over. Some astrologers still believe that each zodiac sign has a body part that goes with their sign, or a body part that has some 'trigger points,' so to speak. Basically, doctors believed each zodiac sign held influence over a certain part of your body, which could mean that you might feel pain or have medical complications in those areas — completely unrelated to how your body looks, of course. Since astrology is used mainly as a creative tool for self-discovery, where do these medicinally inclined ideas even come from?

To be completely clear, no one truly knows for sure. The earliest text about astrology was written by Marcus Manilius, a poet and astrologer who authored Astronomica, a poem in five texts that outlined the practice of astrology in medicine and in spiritual practice sometime around the early first century.

The idea behind medicinal astrology is that it believed different parts of the body, diseases, and what was used to treat them were all under the influence of a ruling sign and planet. Thankfully, things have come a long way since then. But it's interesting to note that many of the associations between body parts and their ruling signs still ring true for astrology enthusiasts, anyway. It could easily be said that the ideas behind medicinal astrology are pure fantasy, but you be the judge.

Aries: Head, Brain, & Eyes

Since Aries is known as the baby of the zodiac, the body part that's known to be most sensitive for them are their noggins. They're the sign most likely to suffer from headaches, migraines, and eye problems. Their extreme personalities are likely to lead to mental stress, due to their nonstop lifestyle.

Taurus: Throat, Neck, & Vocal Cords

Taurus rules over the neck, including their vocal cords and thyroid gland. According to medicinal astrology, they are most likely to suffer from chronic sore throats, as well as an over/under active thyroid. On the brighter side, they're also known to be fantastic singers. So, if you're a Taurus and this bums you out, maybe write a song about it.

Gemini: Arms, Lungs, Hands, & Nervous System

Body Astrology

I don't know why they threw the nervous system in with the hands, arms, and lungs, but you may know a Gemini who talks so much with their hands, it's like they're fluent in their own special sign language. Geminis do tend to worry a lot, especially when they aren't keeping busy, and their nerves can lead to breathing problems and possible anxiety attacks.

Cancer: Chest, Breast, & Stomach

Body Astrology

Body Astrology Photos

Cancers rule over the chest, breast, and stomach. They are a nurturing sign, nestled in the fourth house of the zodiac, which rules over home and family. They suffer from a lot of indigestion (if you know a Cancer, you're well acquainted with how comfortable they are farting in front of people), and they may suffer from a variety of eating disorders.

Leo: Heart, Spine, Spinal Column, & Upper Back

Leos are the sign of the lion with a brave heart. That said, being so brave can lead to heart palpitations, and sticking your chest out all the time can really take a toll on your spine. Leos are the sign that would benefit most from an inversion table; hang upside down a few times a day to increase circulation and realign that spinal column.

Virgo: Digestive System, Intestines, & Spleen

Virgos are known to be very peculiar about things, and that includes whatever they put into their bodies. Much like their personalities, their bodies are continually struggling to clean out the excess, to remove what's unnecessary (like outward displays of emotion), and this constant striving for perfection can lead to suppressing their 'gunk.' What I'm saying is, they can get really constipated.

Libra: Kidneys, Skin, Lower Back, & Buttocks

Well, this might seem a little all over the place, but when you consider a Libra's desire for balance, all of these body parts play a major part in that. Libras' quest to create balance in their lives can become so obsessive that they can lose the balance within, and that imbalance will most likely create a problem in one of these areas.

Scorpio: Reproductive System & Sexual Organs

Scorpios are sexual beings, and human genitalia is a delicate ecosystem. Scorpios are most likely to suffer from chronic UTIs, yeast infections, and bacterial infections. It's not that they aren't clean; they are obsessively clean. They just have an incredibly sensitive, well.. you know.

Sagittarius: Hips, Thighs, & Liver

Sagittarius likes to party as much as they like to explore. They're always out and about, on the move, looking for answers, and searching for new philosophies. The problem with all that movement is it can lead to hip problems. And liver problems, especially when they refuse to slow down with the partying.

Capricorn: Joints & Skeletal System

Capricorn, you old goat. Your sign is constantly pushing itself to aim higher, to reach the top. The problem is you try to carry the world on your shoulders with you, and the weight of that can really mess with your bones. So, the next time you're insisting on doing everything yourself, consider the idea of maybe delegating a task or two, especially if the task could potentially lead to an injury.

Aquarius: Ankles & Circulatory System

Aquarians are a nervous sign, although their nervousness is more of an outward kind, being that their bodies literally cannot keep up with the activity of their minds. The ankles are the joint that connects the entire upper body to the feet, which connect the body to the earth, and like the ankles, an Aquarian is like a human go-between for life on earth and in space. They're spasmodic; their calves, shins, and ankles are proof, as they'll receive a good zap of a charley horse when their body needs a minute to catch up.

Pisces: Feet & Lymphatic System

Astrology Body Parts Houses

Pisces rules the feet and the lymphatic system, and like the lymphatic system, Pisces is a sponge, absorbing toxic energy that can affect their immune system. This sign is incredibly sensitive to harmful substances of any kind. They are basically 'bubble' people, who need to create a protective space around them energetically, or everything falls apart, and they lose their connection to the earth, represented by the feet.
