Liver disease is any disturbance of liver function that causes illness. The liver is responsible for many critical functions within the body and should it become diseased or injured, the loss of those functions can cause significant damage to the body. Liver disease is also referred to as hepatic disease.

Liver diseases and astrology – Indicators and significators:

Jupiter: This ministerial planet is supposed to be the ruler of the various parts of the body like arterial system, glands, liver or gall bladder, pancreas gland, digestion, absorptive power, ears or hearing power, navel, feet, physical development, palate, throat, the hips and the fat tissue. Jupiter causes various diseases like asthma, prosthesis diabetes and other diseases of pancreas glands, thrombosis, anemia, tumors, jaundice and other liver complaints, ear problems, dyspepsia, flatulence, cough, cold, lymphatic and circulatory congestion Liver diseases.

Jupiter rules the liver as well as the fats of the body, or possibly Sagittarius on the 12th or Ascendant (“the health center”). Stressful Jupiter-Venus contacts may suggest diabetes or glycemia problems. Jupiter in aspect to Mars, Saturn may also play a part.

The zodiac in which Jupiter is placed in a horoscope is the Jupiter sign of the person. Jupiter sign decides the dignity of this planet in the horoscope. In human body, it rules the liver, tumors distortion, organs of hearing, lower abdomen, hips, circulation of blood, blood pressure and arteries The ill-placed Jupiter may cause jaundice, gastric, chronic constipation.

Jupiter rules the liver as well as the fats of the body, or possibly Sagittarius on the 12th or Ascendant (“the health center”).stressful Jupiter-Venus contacts May suggest diabetes or glycemia problems. Jupiter in aspect to Mars, Saturn may also play a part.

The sign Virgo has a co-rulership with Jupiter over the largest organ in our body – our liver.

The liver is the only organ in our body that will regenerate and regrow itself if some of it is lost (in accident, as an example). Even better, it regenerates quickly. And that’s the energy of Jupiter; swift healing. Or in this case, swift regeneration! And looking at it another way, it regenerates itself. That is why Jupiter is the main culprit of tumor formation – generating and regeneration of too many cells –cell proliferation.

Cirrhosis of liver:

A wide range of diseases and conditions can damage the liver and lead to cirrhosis. The most common causes are:

(i) Chronic alcohol abuse
(ii) Chronic viral hepatitis (hepatitis B and C)
(iii) Fat accumulating in the liver (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease)

Lord of 6th in 8th in RKA, so is moon lord of 2nd, 6th lord mars aspects the 2nd lord moon, indicating some problem in digestion. 6th lord mars is aspected by 8th lord Saturn through Jupiter the karaka of liver, pancreas etc, gulik in 5th indicates problem in the body parts signified stomach here. The 5th lord in 6th, 6th in 8th, 7th and 8th combine in 4th sign Virgo and aspect the 6th lord mars in 8th. This completes the problem area identification that happens to be stomach, bowels, internal digestive parts and kidney area etc. The native had cirrhosis of liver diagnosed in July 2016.

Transits – Saturn in Scorpio ( retrograde) Jupiter in Virgo, Rahu in Leo and Ketu Aquarius.
Saturn transit in 6th house, Jupiter in 4th over Jupiter and Saturn conjunction, sign Virgo, Rahu in 3rd and Ketu in 9th.

Example cancer of liver and gall bladder

Karaka of liver, pancreas etc Jupiter is retrograde and debilitated, 5th lord Venus in 8th, 6th lord mercury conjunct 8th lord sun in 7th under aspect from 4th and 11th lord Mars, Ascendant lord Saturn in 6th and also in RKA. From moon and sun the 6th house lord is Jupiter, from ascendant 6th lord is mercury which is conjunct 8th lord, here Jupiter is in mutual aspect, thus forming a relationship with 6th and 8th lord. All the trik lords 6th, 8th and 12th have formed a relationship in this chart. Moon is in mutual aspect from Mars.

6th house from ascendant has the ascendant lord in RKA, 6th from Sun has Rahu, 6th from Moon is under the aspect of Saturn. So the 6th house of gall bladder is afflicted.

Gall cancer:

Dasha – Saturn-Rahu-Jupiter (Jupiter is known to expand cancer cells) Rahu is known to spread diseases that are not easily diagnosed, Saturn long standing critical diseases.

Transits – Saturn in Virgo 12th from moon, sign Virgo represents gall bladder area. Jupiter in Pisces 6th from Moon again representing the 6th house from Moon, Rahu in Sagittarius Ketu in Gemini, sign Gemini is 6th from Ascendant. The native suffered from gall bladder cancer in 2010 and thereafter liver cancer in 2013.

Dasha in2013 – Saturn-Jupiter-Saturn – Jupiter represents the liver area, Saturn is known to be degenerative and wasting.

Transit – Jupiter in Gemini, transit Saturn in Libra on Moon, transit Rahu in Libra and Ketu in Aries.

The Sun produces Cancer to the Stomach, Bowels, Head etc. during its period or sub Period. Moon produces Cancer in Blood, Breast etc. while, Mars produces cancer in Blood, Marrow, genitals, uterus neck, gall bladder etc. Mercury produces cancer to nose, navel, mouth, etc. Jupiter produces cancer of liver, ear, tough, thigh etc.

A good rule to remember is: Weak planets in the birth chart, both benefic and malefic, generally cause Vata disorders, even if the planets themselves are of Pitta or Kapha qualities. Planetary weakness as a whole translates more into Vata problems, which cover most conditions of physical weakness and degeneration.

Yet a strong Saturn and Rahu, which are both malefics and Vata in their influences, also mainly cause Vata problems if they afflict the factors of health in the chart like the Ascendant or its lord. Strong Pitta planets, like the Sun, Mars and Ketu, on the other hand, generally cause Pitta problems if so placed. Strong Kapha planets usually cause Kapha diseases only if the combinations are not harmonious, like Jupiter – Venus aspects or influences (Jupiter and Venus are enemies in Vedic astrology).

Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate — a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men. Usually prostate cancer grows slowly and is initially confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. However, while some types of prostate cancer grow slowly and may need minimal or even no treatment, other types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

Since prostate is an organ involved in reproduction. Venus as a planet signifies the rulership.

The chakra responsible is Root chakra and the planet significator Saturn.
Saturn is also responsible for critical and wasting diseases.

Sign Virgo and planet Jupiter signify the area of abdomen and the organs therein.

Jupiter also represents the sacral or swasdhithana chakra it represents the abdomen area.

Sign Virgo represents bowels and entrails and is natural disease significator of natural zodiac. Pisces is 12th sign of natural zodiac indicating hospitalization etc.

For cancer look for-Aspect of Saturn on moon/Venus. Saturn/Mars link, Link of 6th, 8th and 12th lords.

Planet Jupiter and Rahu for expansion. Rahu also represents everything toxic along with Saturn.

Mars for inflammation cuts sores and abrasions.

Jupiter and Rahu dashas feature the most in cancer cases.

Example charts from astro data bank:

Sun as lord of sixth is conjunct seventh lord Mercury in 12th house, Mercury is combust, Mercury is a significator of immunity, here immunity is badly affected. Aspect of retrograde saturn (from previous house) on Sun+Mer conjunction completes the picture of chronic disease. Venus the 8th lord is under the aspect of mars. Saturn aspects the ascendant also. Ascendent lord jupiter is conjunct, 5th lord Moon in 7th indicating the lower abdomen in sign Virgo, the sign that signifies the bowels and entrails. Mercury also stands for endocrine system as prostate cancer usually happens due to excessive hormonal production, Mercury as significator is combust and conjunct lord of sixth. Mercury is badhaka for this chart (obstructor), Jupiter being ascendant lord in Virgo in predominantly kapha sign (one of tridoshas of Ayurveda) with kapha planet Moon and Jupiter being a vata planet on account of its ownership of ether element expands the significations of kapha here. Jupiter trigger’s the disease in its MD – AD period.

5th, 6th lord Saturn in 5th with 8th/3rd lord mars, 2nd lord Venus, lagna lord Mercury and Rahu. The 7th lord Jupiter is of 0 degrees does in ineffective in being protective. Its badhak (obstructer) for this horoscope as well. Moon in 8th the 7th bhava from lagna, 7th from Moon and 7th from Sun all are malefic aspects and their lords are also under malefic aspect. The 5th house from lagna is also afflicted and under RKA. This means that the area of influence of the disease is to be felt in 5th and 7th houses. Saturn is conjunct venus and aspects moon through Mars, the native suffered from prostate cancer in Jan 1991.

Dasha at time of removal and diagnosis – Jupiter-Sat (Jupiter is lord of 7th and 4th Saturn 5th and 6th).

Transit – Jupiter in cancer 4th from Moon over Ketu and activating planets in 5th, Saturn in capricon in 5th, Rahu in capricon, Ketu in cancer.The transit again signifies the actvisation of 5th ,6th ,7th and 8th houses.

Renal failure/ Kidney failure:

Kidney failure occurs when the kidneys partly or completely lose their ability to filter water and waste from the blood.

The buildup of toxic substances normally removed from the body by the kidneys can cause dangerous health problems.

Acute kidney failure (also referred to as renal failure) can happen rapidly.

Mild kidney dysfunction is often called renal insufficiency.

Acute kidney failure occurs in a few people who are hospitalized for any reason. It is even more common in those receiving intensive care.

Chronic kidney failure results when a disease slowly destroys the kidneys. Destruction occurs over many years, usually with no symptoms until the late stage of kidney failure. Progression may be so gradual that symptoms may not occur until kidney function is less than one-tenth of normal.

Astrological causes:

A weak or afflicted Moon is always bad for kidney. The conjoining of Moon with Mars indicates operation.

When afflicted Mars or Mercury are related to the above karakas give rise to the diseases of kidney and pelvic, such as ulceration, abscess or tumour etc.

When malefic Jupiter and afflicted Moon influences the 7th lord and 7th house, the diseases of kidney surfaced to the native.

Sign Virgo indicates liver, large intestines, anus and kidney. If afflicted causes liver troubles such as jaundice, the large intestine troubles such as constipation, hernia, anus troubles such as piles, fissure, fistulae, kidney troubles such as blood urea, suppression of urine etc.

Lord of 5th and 6th Saturn aspects the mercury (ascendant lord) retrograde and combust, Moon the 11th lord Sun the 12th lord Mars the 8th/3rd lord. Venus is in 8th house, Jupiter in Libra the sign representing the kidneys, while the lord of the sign is in 8th house. 7th from Moon Sun and Ascendant under malefic aspect/influence and so are the lords, Jupiter as lord of 7th is aspected by 8th lord Mars. While Venus lord of sign libra representing kidneys is placed in 8th and under aspect from Rahu. The native died from renal failure at the age 40.

Death by Disease 11 May 1927 (renal failure, age 40)
