The seven planets correspond to seven gross elements (dhatus) thus:

Jupiter Fat

Saturn Veins

Mars Bone Marrow

Sun Bones

Moon Blood

Mercury Skin

Venus Seminal Energy

If the fourth house is afflicted, it clearly means affliction to the heart (as the heart is the 4th house by correspondence). If the sixth house is afflicted, digestive tract disorders are indicated.
