The descriptions that follow are divided into the positions of the Sun, the Moon, and the elements of your sign. Locate the element to which your sign belongs and read the description. You can check your Sun and ascendant from our kundli calculator.
Sun (Surya) and Ascendant (Lagna) decide our immunity and physical strength. Our endurance, prana energy, and ability to fight diseases can be known by the significance and strength of Surya and Ascendant. Both have an important role in developing our agility and physical constitution.
In any horoscope, the Sun is the tanu(self or body) karaka. Sun is the king of all planets and represents spirit. It is the chief source of life and offers resistance power. Sun lends us energy and vitality. Our determination to bounce back from diseases depends on the strength of the Sun. When the Sun is well placed in the horoscope, it makes the body strong and robust. When the Sun is benefic, it gives us the willpower to fight back diseases. But a malefic or a malign Sun makes our body weak and prone to various ailments.
Sun is a masculine and fiery planet. It has Agni tattva. This tattva represents inner fire and controls digestion. Agni tattva gives us strength and stamina and represents our energy to heal. Agni tattva signifies our capacity to handle physical pain. If the Sun and the Ascendant are not well placed, we cannot handle the pain and face too many struggles while recovering from diseases.
The combination of the benefic Sun and the Ascendant makes us strong and physically fit. Generally, athletes, bodybuilders, sports persons, and physically fit people have a benefic and strong Sun in their birth chart.The position of the Sun in different houses cast its own peculiar effects on our health and well-being. Sun placed in houses 6, 8, and 12 can give us a weak body and debilitate our resistance power. But it's not only the placement of the Sun that controls our health. Along with the Sun, it's the position of other planets too that affects our well-being. Planets that aspect or form angles with the Lagna strengthen or weaken our immune system.
Moon is watery in nature and has its domain over the mind. Moon controls our attitude and thinking and plays an important role in recovery. People born closer to Amavasya, or New Moon day, have a weak Moon. Such people are anxious and get startled easily. They fall sick very quickly due to their worrisome attitude. Their recovery will be slowed due to their pessimistic outlook.
Nakshatras, or lunar mansions, also play their due role in imparting health to the individual. Certain Nakshatras impart good health, while others prove detrimental to our overall well-being.Mercury rules the nakshatras of Aslesha, Jyeshtha, and Revati. Each Nakshatra is divided into four parts called quarters or padas. Those born with the Moon in the fourth quarter of Aslesha, Jyeshta, and Revati will have the weakest physical strength. Similarly, Ketu controls Ashwini, Magha, and Mula. Natives born with the Moon in the first quarter of these three nakshatras will have the weakest physical strength.

Fire Signs

Agni Tattva (fire) signs are the strongest of all Aries (Mesha), Leo (Simha) and Sagittarius (Dhanu) are the fire signs. These are strong signs and give their natives a superior quality of digestion. People born under the ascendant (Lagna) of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are strongest and have the highest immune power.Healthwise, they face fewer struggles and can recover from ailments much faster than others. This is especially right if they have a benefic Sun. When the Sun is placed in benefic houses and friendly signs of Aries, Cancer, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Pisces, the native has a strong and robust body. On the contrary, generally, people born from 16th October- 15th November of every year have their Sun in Libra (Tula). The Sun in Libra is weakest, and such people can fall sick very quickly if they abuse their bodies.

Earth Signs

The three signs, Taurus (Vrishabha), Virgo (Kanya), and Capricorn (Makara), represent the Bhu tattva, or the earth element. After the fire signs, these three earth signs are stronger and give their natives a powerful body. These natives have a robust build and recover from diseases faster than others. The natives of the earth signs are stable and patient. This is why they have a disciplined lifestyle which keeps them away from ailments as long as possible. Owing to their strong resistance power, they can quickly bounce back to normal health. Even if these natives fall sick or get infected, they can recover with some medication and a disciplined diet.

Air Signs

After the Bhu tattva, the signs Gemini (Mithuna), Libra (Tula), and Aquarius (Kumbha) represent the Vayu tattva, or the air element. People with Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius lagnas usually suffer from wind-related ailments like asthma, flu, and viral infections. They're also prone to high blood pressure and migraines. These air signs have delicate body composition. However, they can do better while recovering from ailments. When they fall sick, they only recover with medication and copious amounts of rest. These natives are prone to airborne diseases. If they want to maintain normal health, they must try to avoid air conditioners, polluted environments, and infected people. Staying away from a hazardous atmosphere can save them to a large extent.

Water Signs

Cancer (Karka), Scorpio (Vrischika), and Pisces (Meena) are the water signs. After the Vayu tattva, these three signs represent the Jal tattva or the water element. People with these three signs on Lagna have the lowest resistance power and are the least robust. These natives catch colds and cough quite easily. Like the air signs, water signs too have a fragile body composition. They easily contract viral infections and phlegm-related diseases.
Of the three (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces), the Scorpio ascendant born can do better while recovering from diseases. Scorpio ascendant borns are tough-minded people and are known for their determination. These natives have a natural fighting ability and an innate capacity to overcome diseases. Among the water signs, Scorpio ascendant is capable of regular workouts which improve their endurance and immune system.
