Zodiac signs are mapped to human anatomy in Vedic Astrology. The first point of Aries corresponds to head, the highest point of human body whereas the last point of Pisces corresponds to feet. Following is the list of zodiac signs associated with different parts of the body.



  • Aries – head, face, brain, and eyes

  • Taurus – throat, neck, thyroid gland, and vocal tract

  • Gemini – arms, lungs, shoulders, hands, nervous system, and brain

  • Cancer – chest, breasts, stomach, and alimentary canal

  • Leo – heart, chest, spine, spinal column, and upper back

  • Virgo – digestive system, intestines, spleen, and nervous system

  • Libra – kidneys, skin, lumbar region, and buttocks

  • Scorpio – reproductive system, sexual organs, bowels, and excretory system

  • Sagittarius – hips, thighs, liver, and sciatic nerve

  • Capricorn – knees, joints, and skeletal system

  • Aquarius – ankles, calves, and circulatory system

  • Pisces – feet, toes, lymphatic system, and adipose tissue


This zodiac sign assignment is widely used in Indian astrology to identify the physical constitution of the person and also which part of the body may experience illness due to transits and mahadasha of planets posited in the natal chart. For example, Mars, Rahu or Ket ill-posited in Leo can lead to heart attack during appropriate mahadasha and antardasha.
