We know that the stars can affect hundreds, if not thousands, of aspects of our everyday lives. But, did you know that astrology can even have an effect on our health?
Historically, astrology has been used in a medicinal capacity, helping people discover more about their own bodies based on where the stars were placed in the sky upon their birth. In fact, the famous Greek philosopher, Socrates, once stated that “a physician without knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician.”
Are you curious about what the stars have to say about your own health? Read on to discover how astrology might be affecting your health.
Do you find yourself “in your head” a lot? Aries tend to overthink things, which can manifest in physical issues with the cranium. You might experience tension headaches, toothaches, jaw pain, and even break-outs caused by stress. Foster new and exciting ways to release negative and frustrated energies to avoid these ailments.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, whose energies are associated with the throat, the jaw, and the body’s production of insulin. This, combined with the Taurean love for refined goods, such as sweets, should cause caution. Be careful not to indulge too much in rich sweets and take special care of the lower portion of your head, meaning your throat and neck.
Gemini is represented by the twins, so think duality. Arms, legs, eyes, and basically anything that comes in pairs on the body are the Gemini energy’s domain, as well as the respiratory system. Take your vitamins and eat plenty of fruits and veggies to make sure you aren’t susceptible to common colds.
Cancer is a Water sign represented by the crab, who is connected to the digestive system. Pay special attention to those butterflies in your stomach, because this area is also closely associated with your powers of intuition. Be sure to create plenty of outlets for your emotions so that they don’t create tummy issues such as acid reflux or indigestion.
Leo is ruled by the Sun and the element of Fire, imagine all that heat! Leo energy is responsible for blood flow and the heart. Your natural self-assurance and charisma typically lead to feelings of warmth and joy. If you find yourself in an emotionally uncomfortable situation, this is likely to cause pain in your lower back, so take some time to stretch.
Virgo is an Earth sign that is responsible for the stomach region, especially the intestines and organs that are associated with the digestion of food. You are always focused and sometimes suffer from tunnel vision, so remember to keep an open mind to maintain open eyes. If you don’t make time for relaxation and the digestion of emotions, you’re likely to have stomach issues.
Libra is another sign that is associated with the organs of digestion, and your energy rules over your ability to absorb the nutrients from your food. You like balance, so you probably keep an even center when it comes to your emotions; but if you find your emotions getting out of hand, you are likely to experience indigestion, acid reflux, or constipation. Make sure to find an outlet for those emotions.
Your energy is inherently intense and mysterious, as those who know you know well will say. Pluto can be a bit of a stern father-figure when your energies turn too possessive, and it can punish your reproductive system. Try to keep a cool head in relationships, and remember that you are loved.
Sagittarians can fall victim to issues with eyesight, the hip and thigh region, and the liver. Avoid indulging in sugar and alcohol, as well as anything that will damage your liver. Exercise frequently to keep your pelvic region limber and healthy.
Capricorn energy is associated with the body’s skeletal system, most especially the area around the knees. Make sure to get enough calcium and do stretches and exercises daily to keep the knees healthy. As long as you are staying limber, you should feel comfortable.
The arms and legs are ruled by the energy of Aquarius, as well as your overall agility. Uranus, Aquarius’ ruling planet, is associated with blood circulation and the body’s nervous system. Make sure you’re utilizing all of your energy, especially nervous energy, in your work and creative endeavors. Practice meditation to stay equalized.
Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is associated with the nervous system and your reflexes. Try turning your daydreams into reality to avoid disappointment that could manifest in physical ways. You are particularly prone to pain in the feet since Pisces rules the feet, so be sure to rest and stretch your toes frequently.
Our bodies are closely connected to the stars, as we are comprised of stardust itself. Let astrology help you tune into your body and learn how to treat it with respect and admiration.
