Zodiac signs represent and rule over different parts of our body. Malefic and benefic influence on the organs depends upon the conjunction of signs or planets aspecting them. The aspect of the 9th lord on the 8th house is good for the health of the native.
According to the method of Jaimini Astrology, the Ascendant and other houses influence our head, face, neck, arms, stomach, shanks (jaghanam), buttocks, sexual organs, legs, eyes and ears.
Sun or Ascendant, whichever is stronger, denotes the body while Moon or Ascendant, whichever is stronger, denotes the heart.
If Pitrukaarak and Matrukaarak planets are placed in front of the Sun, the person will bear problems in his late 40s.
