Liver diseases and astrology – Indicators and significators.

1- Jupiter – This ministerial planet is supposed to be the ruler of the various parts of the body like arterial system, glands, liver/gall bladder, pancreas gland, digestion, absorptive power, ears/hearing power, navel, feet, physical development, palate, throat, the hips and the fat tissue. Jupiter causes various diseases like asthma, prosthesis  diabetes and other diseases of pancreas glands, thrombosis, anaemia  tumours  jaundice and other liver complaints, ear problems, dyspepsia, flatulence, cough, cold, lymphatic and circulatory congestion. 

The zodiac in which Jupiter is placed in a horoscope is the Jupiter sign of the person. Jupiter sign decides the dignity of this planet in the horoscope. In Human Body, it rules the liver, tumors  distortion, organs of hearing, lower abdomen, hips, circulation of blood, blood pressure and arteries The ill-placed Brahaspati may cause jaundice, gastric, chronic constipation, cough, colds, asthma, nose bleeding, apoplexy, tumor  liver weakness, ear trouble and high blood pressure.

Liver diseases
Jupiter rules the liver as well as the fats of the body, or possibly Sagittarius on the 12th or Ascendant (“the health centre ).stressful Jupiter-Venus contacts May  suggest  diabetes or glycemia problems.  Jupiter in aspect to Mars, Saturn may also play a part.

 2— The sign Virgo has a co-rulership with Jupiter over the largest organ in our body: our liver the liver is the only organ in our body that will regenerate and regrow itself if some of it is lost (in accident, as an example). Even better, it regenerates quickly. And that’s the energy of Jupiter; swift healing. Or in this case, swift regeneration! And looking at it another way, it regenerates itself. That is why Jupiter is the main culprit of tumour formation–generating and regeneration of too many cells–cell proliferation.
3–The sign leo— Leo: Heart, upper back, spine, spleen, aorta, circulation.

Diseases: Heart problems, hardening of the arteries, high or low blood pressure, spinal and back problems, blood disorders, all sicknesses in the ribs and sides, the yellow-Jaundices. 

4- Sagittarius: Thighs, liver, hips, arterial system, pelvis, femur.Diseases: Complaints of liver, weight issues and over-indulgence in food, alcohol and drug 

5–Pisces: Feet, toes, lymphatic system, adipose tissue. 

Diseases: Addiction to alcohol or drugs, suspension of normal functioning, general lethargy, all diseases in the feet, colds, immune system problems, fluid retention, hormonal imbalances, chilblains, glandular problems.
6—When considering natal health issues, the first step in analysis is to look at the Ascendant, the 1st house.The 1st house represents the body as a whole, therefore the strength of the 1st house is key to one’s ability to stay healthy and to overcome disease. The basic principles of determining strength in the chart are applied: is the ruler of the Ascendant (the planet that rules the sign in the 1st house) well disposed in the chart (i.e., in its own sign or exalted, in a good house, not in the 6th, 8th, or 12th houses)? Is the Ascendant itself free of malefic influences? The association or aspect of the “natural malefics”, i.e., Mars, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu, is considered detrimental. Do the Ascendant and its ruler have the good fortune of having benefic planets, i.e., Venus or Jupiter, influencing them?
Another key to overcoming disease is the natal vitality. Life Force is shown by the 8th house of the chart, which also indicates Longevity. Once again, the usual techniques are applied to evaluate the house and its ruler. A strong and well-disposed 8th house gives the karma of overcoming obstacles in life and the ability to regenerate one’s health.
That’s the basic scheme for the first level of evaluation, but it quickly    becomes more complicated than this, since all significators in Vedic Astrology have multiple meanings, and every rule has exceptions. For instance, although the planet Saturn, as the planet of suffering, is detrimental to health generally, its placement in the 8th house of the chart gives good longevity because Saturn signifies endurance. 
The 6th house is the house of Health and Disease in general, and has a special role to play in medical astrology. Any planet located in the 6th house of the birth chart is likely to suffer with respect to the organ of the body it represents. Additionally, the ruler of the 6th house (the planet that owns the astrological sign in the 6th house) brings with it the energy of ill health and makes the part of the chart it occupies especially predisposed towards the diseases associated with the part of the body that the house designates.

Putting these factors together, the astrologer can determine from the birth chart what parts of someone’s body are going to cause problems. Then, applying the techniques of prediction, the timing for episodes of bad health can be predicted. 

Each planet governs specific body functions and parts of the anatomy:
Sun: Heart, Bones, Spine (and general vitality)
Moon: Blood, Stomach, Breasts, Body Fluids, Heart-Mind (Feelings/ Psychological)
Mars: Muscles, Circulation of Blood
Mercury: Nervous System, Skin, Speech, Intellect
Jupiter: Liver, Gall Bladder, Fat in the body
Venus: Uro-genital system, Kidneys, Hormones, Female organs
Saturn: Joints, Knees, Teeth
Additionally, the Natural Malefic planets, Mars, Saturn, Rahu, and Ketu, have areas of ill health that they specialize in:
Mars governs Accidents, Injury, Fevers and Infections, and Surgery
Saturn rules over Chronic Conditions, Debility, Exhaustion, and Depression
Rahu presides over Unusual Diseases, Poisons, Cancer, Loss of Consciousness
Ketu rules Mysterious Diseases, “Unseen” causes, i.e., Viruses and Parasites, and Karmic Diseases

According to the classical works, the following rules are to be observed in evaluating the affliction to the various body parts presented in Table 3.3:

If the lagna occupies the first Drekkana, the twelve rasis signify the upper portion of the body.
If the lagna occupies the second Drekkana, the signs represent the middle
portion of the body.
If the lagna occupies the third Drekkana, the signs represent the lower
portion of the body.
In addition, the following must be taken into account:
When planets occupy the same type of Drekkana as the Drekkana occupied by the lagna (chara/sthira/dwiswabhava), then the portion of the body above the neck is afflicted.
Planets in the second type of Drekkana afflict the trunk (middle portion of the body).
Planets in the third type of Drekkana, afflict the lower portion of the body.
The Sarpa Drekkanas
According to Parasara, the 2nd and 3rd drekkanas of Cancer, the 1st drekkana of Scorpio, and the last drekkana of the sign Pisces are designated as Sarpa drekkanas.
The sarpa drekkanas are said to be evil and are not good for matters of health. If they are associated with the lagna and conjoined or aspected by malefic planets, while at the same time unaspected by the lord of that drekkana, it can lead to ill health and even death.
Diseases of the liver—
Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver and poor liver function. It is the final phase of chronic liver disease. Symptoms may develop gradually, or there may be no symptoms.
Hepatitis is swelling and inflammation of the liver. It is not a condition, but is often used to refer to a viral infection of the liver
Jaundice is a yellow color of the skin, mucus membranes, or eyes. The yellow coloring comes from bilirubin, a byproduct of old red blood cells
Fatty liver, also known as fatty liver disease (FLD), is a reversible condition where largevacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis (i.e. abnormal retention of lipids within a cell). Despite having multiple causes, fatty liver can be considered a single disease that occurs worldwide in those with excessive alcohol intake and those who are obese (with or without effects of insulin resistance).

Alcoholic hepatitis is hepatitis (inflammation of the liver) due to excessive intake of alcohol. It is usually found in association with hepatosteatosis, an early stage of alcoholic liver disease, and may contribute to the progression of fibrosis, leading to cirrhosis

Cancer—- Liver cancer or hepatic cancer (from the Greek hēpar, meaning liver) is a cancer that originates in the liver. Liver cancers are malignant tumors that grow on the surface or inside the liver. Liver tumors are discovered on medical imaging equipment (often by accident) or present themselves symptomatically as an abdominal mass, abdominal pain, jaundice, nausea or liver dysfunction.[1] Liver cancers should not be confused with liver metastases, which are cancers that originate from organs elsewhere in the body and migrate to the liver
