In medical astrology the planets indicate the functions or malfunctions of specific organs or systems in the body, depending on what sign the planet is posited in at birth. For instance, Mars always implies a potential area of acute inflammation, a flaring up of a specific condition. If Mars is in Gemini, there could be an acute ailment involving any of the Gemini-ruled areas such as the tubes of the body. Which tube is affected would have to be discerned by careful analysis of the entire chart and the person's past and present medical data: if a woman has experienced uterine complaints, there could be an infection involving one of the Fallopian tubes; or if the person has a past history of lung trouble, there could a flare-up of bronchial irritation or pleurisy. The planets, then, indicate how a specific organ or function of the body will be affected.
