Q:  Does science approve medical astrology?

Krishna: Medical Astrology is the branch of the Astrology that deals with Health and Longevity issues. It 's linked to vedas to make it more attractive to the suckers.

Vedic medical astrology is considered as junk science as there is no genuine evidence to support it. First astrology is pseudo-science. Read here why: Why Astrology is Pseudo-science

Planetary combinations and placements don't cause diseases.

Then Vedas have no connection to Astrology. 

Some of the Indian Astrologers say Indian Vedic Astrology is different from Western ones and is based on science. But what they themselves don't know is the phrase Vedic Astrology is an oxymoron since the prefix Vedic has nothing to do with the Vedas, the ancient and sacred literature of the Hindus, which do not mention astrology in the way we know it now! Go find out by reading vedas if you don't believe the scientists. In fact, scholars agree that the usual planetary astrology came to India with the Greeks who had visited India since Alexander’s campaign in the third century BC (1).

And even Indian scientists conducted experiments on Indian vedic astrology and found that it is fraud. You will find the details here: An Indian Test of Indian Astrology - CSI

Finally, diseases have no connection to planets and stars. 

Diseases and Health conditions arise because of micro-organism (such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, AND also OTHER parasites like protozoa, helminths) infection , defects in electrical and bio-chemical mechanisms and actions in the body, gene mutations and defects, nutrient deficiency, stress and things like that. 

The connection between astrology and health was made when science was still in a primitive stage and there was no clear understanding of how living systems work.

like this...

The following houses represent health issues in the astrology chart (2): 
SIXTH HOUSE: Sixth house in the astrology chart is known as the ‘house of sicknesses’. It indicates disease and sickness. The health will break down only when one runs the mahadashas or Bhuktis of planets connected with the 6th house. Planets in any manner connected to the 6th house have to cause disease. Hence in their conjoined periods they produce such results. Any planet can own the 6th house or occupy the constellation or sub of lord of 6. Therefore, all planets are capable of causing ailment. 
EIGHTH HOUSE: Eighth house in the astrology chart is considered to have direct bearing upon one’s longevity or span of life in this world. It is necessary to consider 1st and 3rd house also in addition to the 8th house for longevity. The 8th house is called the ‘house of death’, the end of life in this world. Eighth house has to do with misfortune, mental anxiety, accident, surgery, suicide, and danger from disease. 
TWELFTH HOUSE: Twelfth house in the astrology chart is the house of hospitalization, confinement, imprisonment, loss of any kind, expenses, secret enemies, deception, and repayment of loan. 

Now that we know how diseases and health conditions develop, and have genuine evidences to make the right connections and as many diseases and health conditions can be cured or managed because of tremendous progress in clinical research  we can abandon old connections, beliefs that have no validity.

Astrology cannot understand epidemics leave alone control them. What is Astrology doing when Ebola, MERS-CoV, Avian influenza, Rift Valley Fever, Measles, Dengue struck recently? It is science that tried to control these epidemics, not astrology. Astrology couldn't even predict their outbreaks beforehand. When an epidemic breaks out or while curing or controlling the disease astrology cannot outwit the modern medical practitioners. All that it can do is make tall claims, cheat people of their hard earned money and withdraw when confronted.

Astrologers suggest some  rituals to counteract the ‘ill-effects’ of planetary combinations.. All these rituals are performed by specialist priests who would naturally extract steep charges for their services! But is there genuine evidence to show that  performing these rituals can actually cure the diseases? Of course, they would provide lots of anecdotal evidence science cannot accept.

Astrologers say (2) for cure, they have to consider the 1st, 5th, and 11th. 1st - health, 5th is 12th to the 6th or absence of sickness, 11th is 12th to 12 - or absence of bedridden sickness. Whenever one suffers from any disease, one will be running the period of the planet connected with 6th house. He can expect cure during the sub period of the planet connected with ascendant or 5th house or 11th house. A Virgo born will be sick when they run the period of a planet in Scorpio, in Saturn star, and sun sub. The following houses represent cure from disease or good health in the astrology chart: 
FIRST HOUSE: First house or the Ascendant is always an important house when it comes to the health of the native. It also indicates native’s physical stature, vitality and vigor. If the ascendant cusp lord and the ascendant lord are well placed by house, nakshatras, aspect and conjunction, it gives good health to the native. 
FIFTH HOUSE: Fifth house is the house of cure or absence of sickness as it is 12th house to the 6th house of sickness and disease. In other words, 5th house negate 6th house matters, that is sickness and disease. During the period of the planets connected with the 5th house, the health of the native improves, and they find cure if they have any health issues. 
ELEVENTH HOUSE: Planets in any manner connected with 11th house cure disease as 11th is the 6th to the 6th. No person can have a cure from the chronic disease, if there is no planet in the 11th house, no planet in the constellation of the owner or occupant of 11th house and if the 11th cusp and the lord of the 11th are in the sub of evil planets. Horoscopes of sick people reveal that the lords of the dasas which they experienced they contracted disease are all in the sub of lord of 6, and the 11th house is not strong. Lord of 11 and 1 are also spoiled. 11th house which is 12th to the 12th house governs discharge from the hospital. 
Rituals performed to achieve these desired results still can't stop them like science stopped (3)  Smallpox and rinderpest, (the two diseases already eradicated), PolioGuinea worm, and yaws, that are in the final stages of eradication (the success  state can be reached when the world co-operates fully with the scientists), Rabies, a disease for which regional elimination is under way.

It is the microbiologists, clinical researchers, doctors and other health care providers that took great risks in studying these  disease outbreaks, controlling them and eradicating them, not astrologers.

If you waste time by going to an astrologer instead of a qualified doctor, you would be risking your life too. Realize that. 

Then came the ridicule that science  still cannot cure several of the diseases. True, we cannot cure several of the diseases living beings are facing right now because of human mind limitations in understanding them, lack of equipment, funds, obstructions caused by people and governments and as we have so many of these conditions and so less qualified people to study them. But it is only a matter of time before we find solutions. Meanwhile don't get desperate and fall prey for cheats. 

Trust science and co-operate with it when requested. That is the only way to move forward if you want to get the right solutions to your  health problems.
