There may not be a direct reference to the connection between your fate and your food habits, but yes, some reference is found in the astrology books which prohibit the consumption of tamsic (non-veg, alcoholic) food while adopting certain. An Overview of Vedic Astrology April 26, 2020 We will go through the basic elements of Vedic Astrology in this article such as planets, signs and constellations, nakshatras (stars), houses and other aspects of reading a horoscope. In this article we will explore all the scientific viewpoints and explore logically whether eating non-veg food.
Astrology says that our food habits are related to the planets in our birth chart. Bhagavad Gita classifies food into three kinds – Sattvik, Rajasik and Tamasik. The effect of eating these different types of food is mentioned in the Scriptures. Food consists of sattva, raja and tama components. Sattvic food is juicy, durable and oily. It increases health, purity, strength, longevity and happiness. Rajasic food is sour, salty, hot, bitter and spicy. It gives sorrow, desire and diseases. Tamasic (intoxicating) is food which is left over, stored, dried, decomposed and bad-smelling. It lacks juices and cannot be digested properly.
Vegetarian food is more sattvik than non-vegetarian food, while non-vegetarian food is more tamasik in nature. Vegetarian food makes a person more spiritual while non-vegetarian food tends to obstruct a person’s spiritual practice. The food you eat indicates the weak planet in your birth chart.
Why non-veg food is tamasic
Food reflects one’s nature and thoughts. When we consume vegetarian food it increases one’s sattvik nature and purity which makes it easier to receive divine blessings. ‘Sattvik’ food reduces anger and creates positive thinking. Eating non-veg food is regarded as sinful in astrology because of the suffering the animal undergoes when it is killed. Vedic astrology holds that every living creature (plant, animal, or human) has been born because of their past karma and they have to perform spiritual practices to clear their karmic debts and get a better life next time or moksha. When we kill them, we shorten their chances to do “sadhana” and gain moksha. This is why non-vegetarian food is not allowed in astrology.
The planets and food
Mars’ nature is hot, red and spicy. It denotes blood and meat. If Mars exerts a negative influence and Moon (Mind) is weak, it creates in one a desire to eat meat. In Vedic Astrology, Jupiter is regarded as an auspicious planet which represents purity and spirituality. Jupiter is the lord of the 9th house representing luck or Bhagya. The person in whose birth chart Jupiter is positive or strong is advised to avoid non-vegetarian food. (Jupiter is considered as a Brahmin).
Astrology books also prohibit people from consuming tamasic food when undertaking certain remedies for malefic planets. For instance, the Lal Kitab, a book on astrology with result-oriented remedies, recommends avoiding non-veg food on such occasions. The basic principle behind this rule is that when performing such remedies, we try to appease planets which have malefic effects. During this time, we should be pure in heart and mind and hence sattvik food is recommended because the food we eat influences our thoughts and deeds.
All our sufferings are said to be the result of past karma, therefore eating sattvic food can improve your karma. This is borne out by logic too as a person who drinks too much may commit indiscretions and wicked acts under the influence of alcohol. Whatever blurs our sense of good and bad will increase our karmic debt which will lead to misfortune, whether in this birth or the next.
ence, Vedic astrology is more inclined to recommend the consumption of vegetarian (sattvic) food as it is good for our karma which in turn plays a key role in the events that affect our life.
Vedic Medical Astrology
Medical Astrology is that branch of Astrology dealing with Health. The 12 Signs of the Zodiac are linked to the Twelve Limbs of the body. The Ascendant rules the Head and the 12th House, the Feet. The Law of Correspondences of Classical Philosophy has another term “The Doctrine of Signatures”. This doctrine states that objects – animate and inanimate – are governed by planets and Classical Astrology has taken this concept beyond “The Law of Cause and Effect” and has defined it as Archetypal or Psychological.
Reflections of the intrinsic qualities of the planets can be seen in people, plants, animals & minerals. All that we see, touch, consume & harvest has a correspondence. By knowing our own planetary signature, we can consume those materials which correspond to our planetary signature and thus a healthy balance can be maintained. (In my horoscope, Jupiter is posited in Cancer and hence powerful in positional as well as directional strength. If I am afflicted by any sort of disease, the escape route is the Jupiterian Way – viz consuming more vegetables and fruits, as he rules fruits and vegetables. If I do that, I will be implementing what the Great Seers said long ago “Naturopathic food is medicine and medicine is food” )!
Since the Zodiacal Signs represent the Five Elements (Ether, Fire, Air, Earth & Water), the ancient astrological savants assigned everything in the Universe to a planetary ruler, and considered all as the manifestation of the Elemental Five and their respective qualities – hot and dry, cold and dry, hot and humid, cold and humid. Jupiter rules “Kapha” and the Sun “Pitta” (the three humors of Ayurveda). These elements were understood in a physical & metaphysical sense, as per the principle “As Above, So Below”. Many body constitutions are defined in Ayurveda. The Phlegmatic (predominance of Kapha), the Bilious ( preponderance of Pitta) & the Windy (predominance of Vata). There are 4 types of Body Constitution in Western Holistic Medicine – Sanguine, Phlegmatic, Choleric and Melancholic.
The Seven Planets correspond to the Three humours (Doshas) in Ayurveda
In the Ayurvedic Model, the Seven Revolving Heavens are classified thus (Vatam Pittayutha Karothi Dinakrith)
Moon Vata & Kapha
Mercury Pitta, Vata & Kapha
Venus Vata & Kapha
The seven planets correspond to the Seven Gross Tissue – elements (dhatus) thus
Saturn Veins &
Mars Bone Marrow
Venus Seminal Energy
By analysing the horoscope, the astrologer can discern the badly placed planet and the corresponding Dhatu which has caused the problem and can prescribe Ayurvedic remedial measures (“Dushthithasyadi Dhatustho Rogeenam Roga Eeryatham”) Taurus woman cancer man compatible astrology.
Medical Astrology’s perspective about the 12 Houses of the Zodiac
First House Head
Second House Face
Third House Throat
Fourth House Heart
Fifth House Place beneath the heart
Sixth House Stomach
Seventh House Generative Organ
Eighth House Upper Thigh
Ninth House Thigh
Tenth House Knee
Eleventh House Calf
Twelfth House Feet
If the 6 H is afflicted, there can be digestive tract disorders. Natural malefics in the 6 H may create hyperacidity and gas trouble. Affliction either to the 7th house means disorders of the digestive tract, hyperacidity and gas trouble (Papa Saptamagah Tadodara Ruja). The same holds good for the 6 H (Papa Shashtagatha Tadodararuja). If the 6 H or the 7 H is afflicted, one should be very careful about the body’s acidity level. The body’s PH value should be kept at 7. Anything less than 7 is dangerous. The 80% alkaline nature of the body should be kept up & acidity should not be above 20%. The best foods to be taken are Vedic Foods, which are low acidity, low cholesterol diet.The Acidity – Alkalinity ratio should be kept at 80% -20%. That ratio can be maintained if you consume 100 grams fruits and 300 grams vegetables daily and avoid non-natural food. Natural foods are alkaline and non-veg basically acidic. From experience, it can be discerned that not only malefic planets bring in problems from enemies, but also problems to the stomach (Pape Shashtopagathe Vrina Bhayaschora Satru Peeda Cha).
If the 12 H is afflicted by malefic planets, there can be affliction to the feet. We have seen many a patient suffering from 12 H affliction and which manifests as problems on the feet.
Similarly, 4 H affliction means trouble to the Heart. I knew one patient with heart problem who had the North Node in the Fourth. He had a heart surgery. The North Node in the Heart region in the horoscope had effectuated this problem.
There are some astrologers who take this from the Horoscope of the Cosmic Man, that is from His Ascendant Aries. This method also yields results but from our experience, we follow the dictum of Natal Astrology that it is the Ascendant of the native which is the head and the Descendant the stomach region. I know many an astrologer who follow this from Aries Asc & if a malefic is posited in Virgo, in the 6 H of the Kalapurusha (Cosmic Man), he predicts stomach problems for the native. (Kalanarasya Avayavath Purushanam Kalpayeth). Or if a malefic is posited in Taurus, he predicts wounds on the face for the native.
Affliction to any house indicates affliction to the corresponding part of the body. North Node – or any other malefic – in the Sixth is indicative of stomach trouble & ulceration. Fourth house affliction means that the heart is afflicted and first house affliction means that the head is afflicted. (Pape Lagnagathe Parajaya Bhaya Siroruja)
The planets correspond to the different systems of Man thus
Sun The Bone System
Moon The Circulatory System
Mars The Muscular System
Mercury The Veins
Venus The Reproductive System
Jupiter The Digestive System
Saturn The Excretory System

From experience, Vedic Medical Astrology is found to be very accurate. In my father’s horoscope, he had a specific yoga for Arthritis with Jupiter in Libra Asc and Saturn in Aries. My mother has Saturn in the 12 H; she has a problem in the leg. My co-brother has Mars in the 12 H; he is suffering from some nerve problem on the feet. I personally have the North Node in the 6 H and I have hyperacidity and gas trouble (Papa Shashtagatha Tadodararuja)!
