Why EAR Disease? Study Astrologically!

Image result for ear diseases "

Hindu Vedic Astrology, this Divine Science has answer for all diseases right from the conception of the native. The body of the native is astrologically divided in twelve house and most of you know about them. The 11th house stand for left ear and the 3rd house stand for right ear. Depending on the horoscope of the native trouble will be in either or both ears.

Diseased or sickly body is also dependent on the horoscope of the native and one of the factors is weak Lagna and Lagna Lord. Every planet has something to may for a particular disease. What is disease? When you are not at ease with reference to any part of the body, you are diseased. The ear trouble and dental trouble are most irritants' for the native.

Actually, ear, nose and throat go together and even in some cases it has been seen that ear trouble alone is capable for harming brain nerves as all of them are connected inter-se and that is the reason we have separate ENT specialist. Placement of malefics i.e. Mandi, Mars, Rahu, Saturn, Ketu and afflicted Mercury becomes responsible for ear trouble specially when placed in the 3rd/11th house. The Sun also becomes trouble some for ear trouble depending in the strength, aspects on the Sun and conjunction/association of other planets with the Sun.

Now, we have the following principles with regard to ear trouble:

1)  If Saturn in 3rd house in with Mandi and has no benefic aspect, the native has nervous trouble in the ear.

2) If the Lord of 3rd house is under malefic influence, the trouble to the ear is also indicated. Navamsha may also be seen.

3) Hearing power is governed by the ears. If there is benefic in the 3rd house and has the aspect/conjunction of benefic, the native hears sermons on religious and spiritual matters etc. on the other hand if malefic planet is in a malefic sign the hearing is of under variable type including destruction of the hearing power.

4) Even according to Phaladeepika, the trouble to the ear should be considered from the 3rd and 11th house. If there is malefic influence on 3rd/11th house, there will be trouble to the ear.

5) For a Virgo Lagna, Saturn becomes the Lord of 5th and 6th- the horoscope is moon in Sagittarius, Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus in the 9th (trine-well placed) Rahu in 6th, Saturn in 9th house and Ketu in the 12th house. Here in spite of well placed planets in the 9th, Saturn (significator of diseases and lord of 6th) aspects the 11th house and 3rd house, 11th lord the Moon is aspected by Mars, all these factors resulted in operation of the ear twice.

Before processing further, it would be apt to divide the Ear in three parts so far diseases are concerned. The parts are external, middle and internal. So fare diseases of the external, middle and internal. So fare diseases of the external not are concerned, the treatment can be given on the face of it. Any irritation and inflammation in the middle of the year can ultimately lead to deafness for which the astrology has some combinations. Deafness is a major disease but comes under the ear disease. Apart form 3rd house (right ear) and 11th house (left ear) other houses namely 9th, 8th, 6th, 5th and 12th also come in picture when the planets  therein aspect either 3rd or 11th. Some astrologers attribute ear disease for signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces but that may not be true as such unless the totality of the malefic influence is traced to the 3rd/11th house, their lords, aspects on them and the Dasha under which the native is going.

Internal ear disease is the most difficult to diagnose and diagnose become more difficult with involvement of Rahu. Under medical astrology the internal part contains a Cochliar nerve which carries the sound and speech. Any injury to this part can cause Cochliar nerves which carry the sound-sensation to brain and thus causing trouble in sound and speech. Any injury to this part can cause deafness permanently. The other medical term is Mastoid bone and when it becomes diseased, surgical intervention becomes necessary.
Following principles may be kept in mind where surgical intervention may become necessary:

1) When Moon, Mars and Mercury join together either in 3rd or in 11th and Ketu is in 7th from them, Mastoiditis occurs and surgical intervention becomes necessary.

2) When Mercury is with the Sun (in close degrees i.e. in Combest position) in the 3rd or 11th and if Mars or Saturn are placed in 7th from them, diseases of internal part occurs and medical surgery becomes inevitable.

3) For Gemini or Virgo Lagna, if Mars and Sun combine in the 3rd, 11th, 6th, 9th or 12th, internal part of the ear become diseased. Sun is important for diseases of bones and when the Sun is placed in the 7th from the afflicted house, surgeons' knife come into place.

However, I caution my all astrologer colleagues that the above combination may shoe improvement by the aspect or other involvement of Jupiter and the disease may not come ore may pass off with little discomfort. Hence the need to make well-guarded predictions after taking into consideration the totality of the horoscope.

I would also now give some more combinations for middle ear discuses :

1) If the Moon and Mercury combine with Mars or Saturn in the 3rd or 11th houses, middle ear disease may be predicted for the relevant ear. Benefic aspect on this combination may make the disease as mild or temporary.

2) Even simple combination of the Moon and Mercury in 3rd or 11th house apecially when these belong to Mercury i.e. Gemini or Virgo, there may be eatery discharge from the year but no pain.

3) When Mars and the Moon combine in 3rd, 11th 5th, 9th, 6th or 12th house, there will be middle ear disease and serve pains as Mars causes inflammation and rupture of tissues or ear drum.

4) When the Moon and Mercury combine Aries or Scorpio (3rd or 11th house) pain and pus formation is indicated in the corresponding ear.

5) When Mars and Mercury combine in 3rd or 11th house either from Lagna or Chandra Lagna. Middle ear disease is indicated.

6) Mars and Saturn in Gemini/Virgo Lagna can cause middle-ear diseases and same results are indicated even from Chandra Lagna.

From the above it is clear that Mercury and her signs Gemini and Virgo have major role to play.
