Medical Astrology– Understanding Alzheimer Disease and Dementia from Vedic Astrology


It was for long, I wanted to write on Medical Astrology. I have written many articles on Entrepreneurship and Business Astrology and this time I thought of doing my own research on the disease Alzheimer and Dementia from Vedic Astrology. Please note that this is an article which I am writing out of my own analysis on the aforementioned disease. This should be read as just thoughts from a spiritual plane and is no way concerned with any medical prescriptions or medicines and neither is a substitute for any medical prescriptions followed by any individual. This article should also not be treated as an alternate form of medicine. This are just my thoughts, which can help to understand the disease form the Medical Astrology point of view.

To give brief about the Alzheimer’s disease, it is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s. Though out the world, almost more million people suffer from this disease and many of them have dementia, which is caused by Alzheimer.


As I continued with my research based on the planetary movements of cosmic planets and understanding the various symptoms of the disease, I tried to analyse the same, based on the position of Astrological Planets in a birth chart of the individual. During my research on the subject, I tried to focus on just one point and that is – ‘forgetting’. Well, that’s the final thing, which happens in the disease. So, the key point amongst all the symptoms is ‘Memory Loss’.

In Vedic Astrology the planet which is connected with memory is ‘Mercury’. This is an extraordinary planet as it deals with many aspects in our life i.e Communication, Memory, Trade and Exports and much more. The mentioned planet ‘Mercury’, as per vedic astrology helps in our speech, the way, it is put forward to the public, memory a human possesses and much more. So, I feel that placement of Mercury in a birth chart is very important to understand the disease from a spiritual plane.

Now lets also have a look into the Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology which is ruled by planet Mercury. These are Ashlesha, Jyeshta and Revati. The Symbol of Ashlesha is Naga devata and the symbol is Serpent. The Symbol of Jyestha is Indra and the Symbol is Earring. The symbol of Revati is Fish and the Devata is Pushan. If planet ‘Mercury’ is afflicted or sits in a bad position in one’s birth chart, then it creates the chances of having disorders in the nervous system. Also, we need to check if any of the Nakshatras of Mercury do have a malefic effect in the birth chart. There is also another astrological planet which needs to be considered for understanding the aforementioned disease is the planet Saturn. The reason, why I thought, the role of Saturn is important, because this planet deals with chronic illness and degeneration. Saturn is connected to illness which generally do not get healed easily and there is a degeneration in the body. Since this degeneration occurs in the nervous system, hence Saturn afflicting Planet Mercury in a horoscope is likely to create a problem with one’s remembrance and speech.


Now the question lies, if the Nakshatras ruled by Saturn also plays a role and if Planet Mercury or Planet Moon sitting in an afflicted position in these Nakshatras trigger such a situation. While primarily, it may be stated that there may be various reasons, but another reason which comes to my mind is if Saturn afflicts Mercury in a Saturn Nakshatra and Moon also remains afflicted. That’s a situation, when triggered by any malefic afflictions by Planet Rahu and Planet Ketu may lead to Dementia and Alzheimer disease. So, what are these Nakshatras which are of the planet Saturn? These are:  Pushya, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadra. It also needs a detailed analysis as Pushya Nakshatra is a nourishment nakshatra and it nourishes the planet which occupies this Nakshatra. So, by that, I mean that not all the nakshatras and the position of planet Mercury may lead to the cause of dementia or Alzheimer disease.

In my understanding and out my own research, D30 chart or Trimsamsa also plays a role to understand the misfortunes that may be created and in this discussion the disease, which we are discussing.


The other factors that need to be kept in mind is the position of the 6th lord in D1 chart with Mercury and also its relation with the Planet Saturn. Secondly, is the 8th Lord in D1 chart is also connected with the Planet Saturn or Mercury in any one of the Saturn or Mercury Nakshatras? These and other details need to understood and properly analysed to understand, if an individual may have or likely to have such a disease like dementia or Alzheimer. Since, I have started doing a research on the above subject from the Medical Astrology point of view, I feel I can come out with more extensive Articles based on my own research in future. Till then, I thank you for visiting my web-page on Astrology and your comments will be a welcome.

At the end, I just want to say that Stay Happy and Stay Blessed.
