Astrology is a form of divination which attempts to predict ones future based upon the influence of the positions of the stars and planets on the object whose astrological chart is being created. The key concept of astrology is as above, so below. That is, what happens on earth (below) is keyed to what is happening in the celestial realms (above).
The theory of astrological medicine combines basic astrological principles along with medicinal techniques. Astrologers assigned each planet and each sign of the zodiac to rule over certain parts of the body. Physician-fortuneteller or Astrological Physician may be two ways to classify the practitioners of this type of healing.
Two astrological charts were cast for the patient, one was the natal chart based on the patients day and time of birth. The other was a chart of the patients disease, based upon the approximate day and time of the start of the patients illness. These charts allowed the physician to determine which planetary influences were affecting the patient at the time they became ill. The astrological medicinal practitioner then determined what planetary energies were in excess or which were deficient and planned a course of healing accordingly.
