Caption: Color enhanced illustration of the human figure with the spine and ribs exposed, and showing veins and arteries in the extremities of the body; astrological signs are linked to the body parts they were thought to influence. Also shown is a vein with incisions for bloodletting. Medical astrology (Iatromathematics) is an ancient medical system that associates various parts of the body, diseases, and drugs as under the influence of the sun, moon, and planets, along with the twelve astrological signs. The underlying basis for medical astrology, astrology itself, is considered to be a pseudoscience or superstition as there is no scientific basis for its core beliefs.
