There are many fruitful ways to approach health and healing using astrology. The traditional model of medical astrology correlates the signs and planets with parts of the body and with maladies that are coupled with these; it also makes use of remedies, often herbs or gems that are reputed to act sympathetically or antipathetically to particular planets. Such correspondences can be extremely useful and I’ve certainly learned a great deal from them. They have, in fact, been the rich jumping-off point for my research into the correlations between astrological symbolism and modern anatomy and physiology. My own particular interest now is in psychosomatic medical astrology – in creating bridges between this updated version of the astrological map of the body, which I call somatic astrology, and psychological astrology, and testing the validity of these correlations by checking them against the material that is thrown up by transpersonal work with clients and their symptoms. Using this process it is often possible to identify tailor-made ways of improving individual health and well-being. While it is certainly not a substitute for medical treatment, orthodox or otherwise, I suspect that every medical problem has a psychosomatic component, and that includes accidents, so the scope for this kind of approach may be considerable.
