If one wants to master medical astrology, one has to understand that each degree in the zodiac from 0 to 360 indicates separate organs in our body and related diseases. Sruthi astrology is not taking up this assignment now to elaborate medical astrology and this article is only to say how amateur astrologers should develop approach towards identifying diseases by observing a horoscope.

As a broad classification, if any of the above combinations are connected to 6th house, we can presume that the individual is likely to suffer from the said disease during the period of the planet concerned.
To make it easy to understand, the following combinations may be considered.
1. The first priority is to be given to a planet positioned in the constellation of any planet positioned in 6th house.
2. If the above combination is not found, then the planet positioned in 6th house will take the responsibility of giving disease.
3. If there is no planet in the 6th house, the third priority is any planet positioned in the constellation of lord of 6th house.
4. If the above three combinations are not found, the lord of 6th house will directly give the effect.
5. Any planet in conjunction or in trines with the above planets.
6. Any planet aspected by the above planets.
7. If Rahu or Ketu or connected with the above planets in any manner, they can also give diseases during their periods.
Mostly, the planets which are supposed to give results will give the results during their Mahadasa or antardasa as per Vimsottari dasa system.
There may be some differences in different texts with regard to above classifications.
After diseases, the following are some of other combinations relating to 6th house.
If the lord of 2nd house (finance) or any planet positioned in 2nd house is strongly related to 6th house, the individual goes for loans. If the lord of 2nd house or the planet positioned therein is afflicted badly, the individual may go bankrupt and unable to repay the loans.
If Sun or Mars are positioned in 6th house or related to 6th house, such individuals have ample of chances of winning battles. This can be attributed only to persons working in defense sector. However, nowadays, persons with this combination will be able to come out in competitive examinations on merit. If they are job holders, they will be in a position to convince their bosses and subordinates as well and earn name and fame in their respective sectors. Jupiter in 6th house generally indicates that such person will have no enemies. Position of Mercury in 6th sometimes indicates conflict with business partners. Those who are involved in business with their natal Mercury in 6th house should take cautions in this sector. Venus in 6th house in many cases cause marital disharmony and it may lead to divorce or it may also lead to dissatisfaction in marital life due to prolonged illness to life partner. Position of Moon in 6th causes mental disharmony. Position of Saturn in 6th may cause chronic diseases. Rahu or Ketu in 6th house mostly give the results of the lord of that particular house.
Not only position of the above planets and even any link by way of aspect etc with 6th house may also cause more or less the same results.
However, there are certain exceptions to the above negative results and if the houses happen to be exalted or moolatrikona or own house, the planets may give moderate rajayoga during their period. This yoga is called Harsha yoga.
