There was a time when astrology was a science and accepted part of medical diagnoses are as much as the physical symptoms of the patient.

It's hard to tell whether the e-engaged or-involved, as we have more to live in harmony with the cosmos. We consider ourselves too advanced scientifically to think that the movements of stars and planets have serious consequences on our daily lives and our health.

But we are right. About all that a man with his limited brain to say, can truly understand the workings of the universe or how it fits within it. Western civilization is founded on conquest, not understanding. But it was not always the case.

Astrology is one of the historical contexts in which astronomy developed. The Babylonians carefully compiled tablets of the position of Venus, as it was believed the prospects for the weather, war, famine, disease, governments and kingdoms to show.

Claudius Ptolemy composed the Tetrabiblos, believing that astrology could be placed on a sound footing, while an art as medicine suspected. In practice, belief in astrology means horoscopes cast for newborn children, the future spouses and political enemies, public buildings and open marriage and other ceremonies during the days of good character. Numerous records of astrological practice can be found in Roman times, and doctors regularly consulted astrological charts as part of the diagnostic process.

For example, all the signs of the zodiac as a part of the human body to rule the Sagittarius ruled the thighs, Pisces the feet, and so on. When the moon in the zodiac ruling a particular part of the body, bleeding from the party should be avoided, since the attraction of the moon can cause excessive bleeding.

Numerous medical manuscripts and almanacs, the figure of the 'zodiac man' as a reminder of the specific influence of the moon. In addition, the strength of the pull of the moon changes its phases, and thus almanacs usually the phases of the moon.
