What is astromedicine?

 

The term astromedicine is a combination of astrology and medicine. It is a non-scientific healing method that has existed since the Middle Ages. It is still important today, even if its basic principles contradict the knowledge of modern, scientific medicine.

 

Knowledge of astromedicine brings awareness into the background of diseases in the sense of psychosomatics. They make it possible to practice prevention in the sense of salutogenesis in order to keep the body healthy.

 

In astromedicine, the body and its functions are related to the twelve signs of the zodiac and thus to astrology.

 

This assignment can be found for the first time in the early 1st century in the work Astronomica by the Roman poet and astrologer Manilius. It is the oldest astrological work that has been handed down in full from antiquity.
