Aries (March 21-April 19)
From a health perspective, Aries always lead with their heads. Ask any Aries if they've ever had a head injury, a concussion or scars on or about the head somewhere, they always say: "Yes". Some of you Aries types may have awful, constant headaches from an old concussion or injury you sustained many years before. Aries rules the head of the body, the brain and the skull. Aries also rules the outer ears, the nose and skin on the face and head. Many Aries get blood pounding, throbbing or hammering headaches after they get angry because their blood pressure has skyrocketed. Older Aries have to watch this because they are prone to high blood pressure in later life. They should have an annual check up to keep tabs on this potential condition. What can happen is if it's not diagnosed, it can wear out the capillaries and veins in your brain matter and a stroke can occur. Most Aries complain of headaches--all types and varieties. Stress always begins and ends for Aries within their head, so headaches are quite common to a good percentage of them. Migraines can attack too, when you're really under big time stress.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You're a person of impeccably good taste. No one loves food more than you do--gourmet or connoisseur quality. And therein lies a possible problem, weight gain. There is another reason for weight gain that comes within the purview of the Taurus domain--a hypothyroid condition. Your skin turns dry or even flaky anywhere over your body . Hair loss from your scalp becomes unavoidable. Tiredness is another culprit to be watched upon. Low blood pressure is also a notable problem for the Taurean. Taurus, regardless of gender, always has throat -related problems such as hoarseness, colds that "settle" in their throat and make them absolutely miserable. They are often more susceptible to Strep infections, or have longer, meaner sore throats than any other sun sign. All this can be helped nutritionally as well as homeopathically. You aren't the most physically active sun sign in the zodiac. Another great thing about you is your love of all kinds of foods--you are not a picky eater like some other zodiac signs and you usually get a good deal of fruits, vegetables, bread and meat. Taurus people instinctively know the wisdom of eating all foods.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Versatile, multi-talented Gemini gets sick because he or she just tries to do too much, too fast and their central nervous system goes awry on them from the incredible stress load put on it.Gemini's run on nerve-energy fuel. Other areas that Gemini is likely to get injured or have to pay attention to, health-wise, are their hands, arms, shoulders and lungs. Most Gemini's, when they get sick, get over it very quickly. If everyone else is having a 7 day cold, you will get it for 3 or 4. Gemini also has ruler-ship over the Eustachian tubes that run from the ear into our lymph gland system. The other "tubes" in our body that Gemini rules is the fallopian tubes in a woman, the ureter tubes and the urethra. Colds just naturally gravitate to your lungs, which is your weak link in your body. So, other ailments such as bronchitis and pneumonia can stalk you, too. If you would take an hour out of your hurry-scurry day, Gemini, and do some yoga or meditation, this would really keep most of the colds and flu away from you.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
Cancers live their lives through their stomach. They have a wonderful sense for the taste, texture and fragrance of the food they eat. Milk and dairy products are so important to you. However, dairy products can get you into a real jam too, and in more than one way. Cancer also has ruler-ship over the "sacs" of the body. The eyeballs, the cheeks of the face, the uterus and stomach are all sacs of some kind that hold something. They are all under Cancer's domain and these consequently become the weak points of this sign's superstructure. Usually, Cancer's main problem comes from the stomach or digestive region, Cancers are more prone to cataracts and glaucoma than a lot of other zodiac signs, simply because it has ruler-ship over the eyes and everything that goes on with them. Heave a sigh of relief--you're not getting the disease cancer because you were born under the sun sign of Cancer!! It's just a coincidence that is meaningless, thank goodness. Cancer can't help but be super emotional because your ruler is the Moon, which astrologically rules our sub-conscious and emotions/feelings. There's no magic "pill" to deal with our emotions! But poor Cancer has his and her hands full with their vibrant mass of constantly shifting feelings, intuition, and emotions. Hence they need to keep their emotions under check.
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
Health wise, Leo rules the heart and circulatory system . Leo is a fixed sign, which means he or she has definite opinions, ideas and ways that they should operate in our world. Disappointment emotionally for a Leo goes straight to his or her heart--and with enough of these hurts, it begins to take a toll on this magnificent organ in this magnificent sign and person. So, it's not surprising that many Leos, especially men, get heart attacks in their forties. Leo needs fresh air, walking or jogging or some form of moderate exercise to keep their circulatory system running at peak speed. If, for some reason, Leo gets sedentary and doesn't feel like getting off the couch, then circulatory problems could set in--such a phlebitis, which, if not caught in time, can be deadly. Or, they may experience some tingling or coldness in the fingertips or toes. Sometimes, if they bend over and then straighten up too fast, they can get lightheaded or dizzy for a moment or two. Or, you will get out of breath very easily; these are signs of a circulatory system under distress.Don't take anything straight to the heart and take life as it comes by, Leo !!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
No one is more health conscious than you, Virgo. Every germ, bacteria and virus, comes under your personal scrutiny. And no one is more aware of the spreading of germs, so you may wash your hands frequently--just to make sure you're not carrying one about or transmitting it elsewhere. Virgos do best on a grain type of diet, with vegetables, some fruit and a little meat (poultry or fish). They are more apt to be vegetarian or vegans, than any other sign in the zodiac. Meat is repugnant to them. One reason is they have such a soft heart for animals .Virgo rules many things anatomically speaking; among them, our liver, which is the major cleansing station of the body to get rid of poisons and toxins that could kill us. Another is the pancreas, which keeps our blood sugar stable--if it isn't, then we're open to hypoglycemia or low blood sugar, or hyperglycemia, which is diabetes. Many Virgos have indigestion, but it comes from a sluggish liver, not from weak stomach digestive acids. These are the weak organs for Virgo: the liver and the pancreas, plus the small intestines. Unfortunately, when Virgos get stressed out, they get diarrhea.
Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Born with beauty and brains, Libra has it all. Whether you're man or woman, there's a wonderful internal beauty that just glows through you and everyone sees it. You have the nicest complexion in the Zodiac. Others may spend huge amounts to try and get what you have naturally. The weak link in your body as a Libra is your kidneys. Skin problems like dry patches of skin here and there, red/itchy skin, acne-like eruptions, or later, it will be misdiagnosed as eczema or psoriasis are also common. Headaches may come and go for seemingly, no reason at all. General fatigue or tiredness is also predominant.
By cleaning up your diet: no milk , ice cream or cheese once every 7 days, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and some whole grains , the kidneys will become cleaner and begin to work up to their full potential. And then, these symptoms will gradually go away over time.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Scorpio is one of the strongest, healthiest signs in the zodiac, partly because you are such a powerful energy to begin with. Your ability to be strong and persevering is wonderful in many ways, but if you begin to ignore and hide from your intense feelings and emotions, then health trouble is brewing. One area of weakness for Scorpio is the large intestine, especially the colon region. Scorpios have an awful problem with constipation. You can change your diet to a rule: drink plenty of water (4-6 glasses daily), have a high fiber diet .Get plenty of exercise too. Just moving around, sometimes, helps. Most importantly, stay in touch with your feelings and talk about them. Scorpio's other weak spot is their reproductive system. Scorpios have a very strong, robust sex drive and consequently, may enjoy many more sexual contacts than some other zodiac signs. So, safe sex is Scorpio's by-word. If you don't practice safe sex, then because the reproductive region is your weak link, you are open to STD's--sexually transmitted diseases.Worse, HIV and AIDS is out there.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Sagittarius is the healthiest of the twelve signs. You rarely come down with anything, and if you do, it's a fleeting cold or a 24-hour type of flu--and that's all. Jupiter, your ruling planet, has really done you a favor. Sagittarius rules over our exhaled breath, the sciatic nerve and our hip region of our body. Athletically, you are one of the most active of the zodiac signs. "Shallow breathers" is a syndrome that you and Gemini share exclusively. So, if you don't breath out fully you are in for more trouble. Usually, Sagittarius women end up with big hips and abundant thighs. Weight will gather there as you grow older and there's not much you can do about it. The guys usually stay thin and they don't get this extra gift of weight. One thing, though, regardless of your gender, is sustaining injury to the lower part of your body; a cracked pelvis, a broken hip or thigh . Or, a lot of bruises, cuts or scratches occur in this region. The worst is sciatica, which is the inflammation of a very large nerve that runs from the lower spine, down through your buttocks, your thigh and all the way down to the heel of your foot. This is a big, long, central nerve pathway. For Sagittarians, Sciatica gets inflamed from time to time.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Being the symbol of half fish and half goat, this is an interesting combination.Your emotions are very rarely shown or displayed publicly, and even in private, you are conservative and careful with whom you share them. All of this can lead to health problems in the future if you don't speak up and speak out at the appropriate times.If you stuff your feelings and don't get them out, then a certain medical condition can result: Gallbladder inflammation. Capricorns are prone to gallstones, which are usually soft, fatty globules that form in the gallbladder. Symptoms of a gallbladder attack often parallel a heart attack. There can be a "heartburn" kind of feeling in the central chest region, and it can literally feel like a fire is burning inside you. Another weak area for all Capricorn's are your knees. When they get up or sit down, their knees pop, crack and make funny, sometimes embarrassing sounds that everyone else can hear. Many Capricorn's have weak knees or problems in that area which may require surgery later on. Capricorn's get scars, scratches, cuts, bruises and other injuries on their knees more than any other part of their body. Swimming and horse riding are advised for them but they should avoid walks
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Potatoes, bread, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, and pastas of any kind, all starch-loaded items are your favorite foods in life, Aquarius. And while this is an excellent food group in moderation, Aquarians are not moderate at all in this area.Aquarians begin to get sleepy about 30 minutes to an hour after eating due to the high starch-content in their food. This is very bad for Aquarians particularly if they're driving or some other skill that requires them to be mentally alert. They need to choose items from other food groups, too. Be sure you have a salad and for dessert, a fresh fruit. But for this , the Aquarians generally lead a medically problem-free life.
Pisces (Feb 19 - March 20)
Pisceans come down most frequently with colds or flu. The lymph gland system is the main target in Pisceans. The muscles are the "heart" of the lymph gland system. So, exercise is vastly important to you. Water is your medium, so swimming is one of the best ways to "massage" your lymph gland system because all the muscles of the body are used in this form of exercise. Your health is completely predicated upon your emotional structure, Pisces. You are one of the most highly emotional signs in the zodiac (Cancer is second and Scorpio is third), and your health or lack of it is directly tied to your feelings. Pisces health is directly connected to their feet--and this is a weak point in you. Chances are you've had more injuries to this part of your body than any other. Bruises, cuts, scrapes, and maybe even surgery. Many Pisces have bunions. Pisces have all kinds of foot problems, including Athlete's foot. Take a walk when the sun is rising or setting. Stay in tune with yourself for you have the best instincts and inner knowing than any other zodiac sign. Your body will "talk" to you and tell you what food it wants on a daily basis--so trust it--and yourself. Meditation and yoga are perfect health producers for you--so try them out. Swimming is wonderful for you, if there's a pool nearby.
