Through The Empires Of Eternal Void
Zodiac Man; - Part of the Medieval worldview was the idea that man was a microcosm (“a little world”) which reflected the macrocosm of the Ptolemaic universe. As the Earth was divided into regions influenced by the planets, similarly the body of man was divided into “regions” governed by signs of the Zodiac.
Astrological signs were thought to influence the body and its health, and sketches of the “Zodiac Man" are common in medical treatises of the Middle Ages. These diagrams instructed doctors and barber-surgeons whether it was safe to bleed a patient or to perform surgery; if the moon was in the sign of the bodypart in question, it was not recommended. (The position of the moon could be determined with a volvelle — a rotating calendar.)

Taurus — Neck
Gemini — Arms & shoulders
Cancer — Breast
Leo — Shoulder blades & Sides
Virgo — Stomach & intestines
Libra — Hips & buttocks
Scorpio — Genitals
Sagittarius — Thighs
Capricorn — Knees
