The Astrology of Breathing Disorders

Here is a presentation of the research I’ve recently conducted into astrological indications of breathing disorders. I would like to thank everyone who submitted their data in response to the post I made on my facebook page.

Here is a video explaining the hypothesis and walking through four case studies. The text in this blog post, however, includes a dozen more case studies, including a few with more mild conditions.

This research was conducted over a few days. It is meant as a first step towards scientifically evaluating these medical conditions. Subsequent steps should include evaluating the benefic indicators which could reduce the effects noted here, to cross-check if other hypothesis might produce better or equally accurate results, and to evaluate at least a dozen more cases.

The notes below utilize some shorthand:

“H” = house, so 4H is short for “Fourth House.”

“L” = lord, so 1L is short for “First Lord”

“D” = division (aṁśa), so d-16 is short for “śodaśāṁśa” or “16th Division”

“MB” = mṛtyu-bhāga


Breathing disorders are indicated by afflictions to the 4H in D1, D16 and D60.

The 1H, Sun, or Moon must also be afflicted, to cause the 4th house problems to have a physical outcome.


Houses 6, 8, 12 and their lords cause affliction, as do Saturn, Mars and the Nodes.

2/7 Lords (māraka) also cause affliction when together.

Mṛtyu bhaga (“Fatal Degree”) is also a very significant afflicter.


4H is crucial in breathing disorders because it is the area below the arms and above the stomach, where the lungs reside.

The D16 is crucial because it corresponds to 4H. In D16, 1H and 4H are especially important.

The D60 is very important for everything, so its 1st and 4th houses are also focal points for breathing disorders.
