.seven major metals in the body contribute to the seven important areas of

constitution .The metals are ruled by Sun ,moon , Venus ,Mercury , Mars ,Jupiter and Saturn . .Sun is karaka for gold , moon for silver , mercury for mercury , Venus for copper , Mars for iron , Jupiter for tin , and Saturn for lead. . Sun has the jurisdiction of heart and spine , moon of brain and fluids , mercury of nervous system and lungs , Venus of kidneys and nutrition , Mars of blood and muscles , Jupiter of liver and gall bladder ,Saturn of skeleton , skin , hair and nails . In the system of healing of siddhas , medicines are given by using the metals. Even astrologically , when a chart is made , depending upon the lagnadhipathy , 6th lord , aspects there of ,their relative strengths , the disease pattern , seriousness and remedies can be arrived at .But then again , it all depends upon the sincerity , honesty and commitment of the astrologer .Astrology is a science in it's own right and is not a superstition . If I fail in the subject of maths in my 10 th exam , it is not the fault of either teacher or the subject .Leaving astrology ,taking the case of a disease alone where any particular organ is afflicted a medicine containing that particular metal , if given , brings great relief . Thus Jupiter rules over liver & gall bladder , Venus -- kidneys , Mars blood , muscles circulation and the three put together cure diabetes if iron , copper and tin are used in the medicinal preparation . Here is a vast field and area for research and experimentation , if any takers are there .
