Medieval astrology is replete with techniques to measure an individual’s vitality, resilience to illness, and the approximate length of their life. One such technique involves identifying candidates from positions in the birth chart that take up special roles. In this lecture we’ll explore the hilaj and kadukuhdhah and determine how to identify them in a chart. We will also apply Primary Directions to indicate times when individuals may experience critical health periods.
