Understanding Cancer through Astrology

(This article was written in 2013. It is a long article and only based on astrology.)

Astrology is an Ancient Shastra in India. Medical astrology, in particular, is a relatively new branch in astrology.
In this article, we will try to study and understand Cancer from an astrological point of view.

19th Century Surgeon called Cancer as “The Emperor of all maladies and the King of
terrors.”

Cancer, known medically as a malignant neoplasm, is a broad group of various diseases,
all involving unregulated cell growth.

In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumours, and invade nearby parts of the body.
Cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream.

In 2002, 11 million new cancer cases and 7 million cancer deaths were estimated worldwide. In 2008, approximately 12.7 million cancers were diagnosed (excluding non-melanoma skin cancers and other non-invasive cancers) and 7.6 million people died of cancer worldwide. Cancers as a group account for approximately 13% of all deaths each year.

From the astrological point of view—

Houses
• Lagna and its Lord— represent body in general. When anything is happening to body Lagna and its lord should get involved. It governs health, longevity, Constitution.
• 8th house and Lord— it governs death so it is opposite of 1st house. Chronic and incurable illnesses, cause of death, severe mental sufferings come under its domain.
• 6th house and Lord— Diseases in general, ill health, operations, accidents, mental suffering etc. comes under its domain.
• 12th house and lord— also indicate suffering and hospitalisation.
• 2nd house, 7th house and its lords— they are maraca sthanas. They are responsible for disturbing health. If further afflicted can even cause death.

Planets
• Saturn— it is the slowest moving planet. It indicates incurable, very chronic illness. Primarily, all types of cancers come under its domain.
• Rahu-Ketu axis— Rahu is equivalent to Saturn; and similarly signifies incurable ailments, chronic illness. Ketu signifies illnesses which are uncertain, with hidden causes/processes, creating confusions in diagnosis.

Principles
1. Involvement of Saturn with Lagna, 6th, 8th houses/lords can indicate suffering from very chronic/ incurable illness.
2. Involvement of Rahu-Ketu axis with 6-12 houses/lords and 2-8 houses/lords.
3. Lagna lord/House should be majorly afflicted.
