Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and Its Health

The Zodiac and Its Health: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

The Health for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

A health problem ? Which problem ? If anything must happen to you, it is likely that overwork comes at the top of the list of your wellness worries. It is obvious that you are unwilling to listen to recommendations to be careful or to slow down your pace. Nevertheless, check your blood pressure. In general, when you are fine in your head, your body follows, since Aries is related to this part of the body. You are prone to migraines, neuralgias, fever bouts, or bruises. Fortunately, you know how to use your innate energy in order to get back on your feet. Because in your opinion, there is nothing worse than staying in bed taking care of yourself. This is deeply boring, and you are happy with yourself only when you feel efficient and in great form. This is actually shown by your musculature, which can make people green with envy. Keep on practicing sports, do not forget to relax, and everything will be well.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

The Health for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

First good news: it is well-known that your nature is strong and that you are very resilient. However, you should take the time to stick to your little habits. In order to feel fine, you need to get enough sleep, to take your meals at regular hours, and to maintain emotional stability, because you may internalise certain conflicts. The threats are found in the ENT area, meaning the throat, the neck, and the nose. You must also pay attention to any thyroid dysfunction and to your vocal chords. In general, follow a balanced diet in order to avoid diabetes (if you are too fond of sugar), and gout. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, just to stay in touch with natural and preferably unprocessed food. Since you are not a very complicated person, you need only to respect simple and common sense principles to protect your health.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

The Health for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

When you get an interest in a disease, you enjoy gathering pieces of information, but you do not feel personally concerned, because you look at them from a general viewpoint. However, respiratory tracts are your weak spots. A little drought is enough to catch a cold or to make you cough. You may also undergo the drawbacks linked to your nervous temperament. Indeed, your sleep may be disturbed if you are unable to control the endless flow of your thoughts. You must calm down, let's say it bluntly. Do not forget that your constitution is delicate and not very resilient. Worries, sullenness, or pessimism may lower your energy. At work, you sometimes get exhausted, and therefore, you become a candidate for burnout. Even though you are nimble and supple, you may be injured when you practice a sport, or just when you run after the bus. In a different field, you tend to get cuts on your hands, or to sprain your wrists or your ankles. It is not because you are clumsy, on the contrary, but probably because you are often absent-minded or lacking concentration. Fortunately, your adaptation abilities work wonders, and placebo methods are very efficient.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The Health for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

When the stomach has no problem, all is fine. This aphorism applies to Cancer perfectly well, because many things are influenced by digestion. Therefore, you must watch your diet most seriously. Avoid any excess, and do not take stimulants that you have difficulty controlling. Beware of food allergies. On a different topic, when you hear a bad news, or when you are stressed, you may somatise and become unable to eat properly: either you have no appetite, or you become bulimic. Your propensity to internalise your angst could result in ulcers. You go through slight cyclothymic disorders as soon as you brood over a problem, and you cannot sleep any more. You also tend to suffer from water retention, your sign's element. Fortunately, water is also very helpful. To recover, nothing is better than swimming and resting quietly on the bank of a lake or on the seashore.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

The Health for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Owing to your ego, you never acknowledge that you are ill or tired. You would love to be like those mythological heroes who never get wounded or sick. Although you want to cope well in all circumstances, you must be careful and get enough rest. If you feel that your pulse beats faster if you overindulge, run to the medical practitioner to have your blood pressure checked. You must be aware that you may be prone to infarction. Always pay attention to any stiffness, weird dizziness, or tinnitus. Your other weak spot is your eyes and your sight. Even very basically, dryness of the eyes or of the mucous membrane is among Leos' typical problems. Inflammation of the back muscles may also occur. Fortunately, your pride is an excellent incentive helping your recovery.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

The Health for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

It would be easy and tempting to consider that you are a hypochondriac. To begin with, you are an expert in prevention, concerned about hygiene, and self-disciplined when it comes to remaining fit. Nevertheless, you cannot control your gastric functions. Ruled by Mercury, nervousness may cause a couple of unpleasant surprises: your bowels will make you pay the price if you do not control your anxiety. Since your constitution is sometimes puny, and in any case not very robust, you must be careful not to lose weight in alarming proportions. As soon as you are under pressure, for instance during exam periods, or if you must take up a serious challenge, you cannot eat any more. This results in rash or cold sweat against which there is nothing you can do. Your tendency for constipation or diarrhoea may trigger a vicious circle. Letting go is the only word describing what can offer relief. You will see that the calmer, the stronger.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

The Health for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Ruled by the Air element, you are restless and nervous, which may cause typical troubles such as exhaustion. Kidneys and bladder are the organs you should pay careful attention to. The most frequent pathologies are for instance lumbagos, colic, stone formation, or cystitis. Beware of neuralgia or of pains in the lower back region. The key to good health is in the calm and reasonable way you deal with these issues. When you are sick, you immediately want to get information from your caretakers, and to share your experiences with other patients. You do not do this deliberately; this is how you can externalise your uncertainties and, above all, put things into perspective. The drawback is that, should anyone try to get the upper hand, your whole balance may be affected. You need to be loved in order to feel full of life. Otherwise, what's the use? Even when you are discussing with a medical practitioner, you are seeking an affective link. At the same time, you need to get quick positive results.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

The Health for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Given your extreme temperament, the sicknesses which may affect you at times are particularly intense. Mere colds turn into bronchopneumonia, and allergies or stings demand emergency care. Conversely, you resist with amazing strength to diseases threatening other people's life. Owing to your sign's symbolism, you are prone to problems of the excretory system and the reproductive organs: urinary and genital infections, ovary condition, as well as intestinal fermentation. AIDS was the "new plague" when Pluto transited Scorpio, from 1984 to 1995. Of course, this does not mean that you are more at risk than the average population, since this transit had collective effects. However, remember that you must be twice more cautious about preventing STD. In some way, the fact to take up a challenge or to express your fighting spirit may become an excellent healing tool.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

The Health for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Hips, thighs, and pelvis are your vulnerable spots, whether talking about a mere weight gain or more serious troubles such as dislocation or sciatica. Sagittarius' active nature, as well as your fondness for sports may lead to broken bones or to sprains in the upper parts of the body. The very fact that you are immobilised tends to make you crazy, you must know this. An additional problem stems from your bon viveur nature, which is highly pleasant, but may prove tricky. The word “excess” or “exaggeration” takes its full meaning here when you are unable to control yourself and to stop overindulging. Pancreas, liver, and gallbladder may stop working properly if you are not reasonable. Fortunately, your optimism is also your best weapon. You know how to work hand in hand with health-care providers, fully trusting the best practitioners' capacities. Moreover, you instinctively know what is good for you.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

The Health for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Pay attention to your bones! This is obviously what you must watch. Since youth, you must check your skeleton as well as your teeth and your joints. At maturity age, arthritis, rheumatisms and articulation pains become Capricorn's typical issues. Having said this, you know how to take care of yourself, and you consider your body as a capital you must protect. You are convinced that your behaviour influences your longevity. Moreover, you are frugal and ascetic, which shields you against many a pathology. However, skin is something you cannot control. Marks of acne or eczema are there to prove this. Although you are seldom sick, and you resist bacterial infections well, your pessimistic character does not always help recovery. Especially if your hide it beneath your calm or apparent indifference.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

The Health for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Even in the field of health, you behave differently from people. You are not exemplary when it comes to taking medicines, frequently forgetting them, or confusing their dosage. Do not hesitate to request the help of those who care for you and who can think for you. Your potential vulnerabilities are about blood circulation. Your pulse may be faster than average, bearing in mind that your constitution is rather nervous and delicate. Fragile, you suffer from spasms, or you develop a rare or auto-immune disease. You may have varicose veins also. The good side of the Sun in Aquarius is his capacity to get out of his bodily envelope. You manage to remain calm and serene, which may prove a safeguard. Furthermore, you are interested in the psychological aspect of your condition, and you seek support on the Internet forums. With Uranus, recovery may occur at a most unexpected moment.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

The Health for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Oh, your health, such a poem! You are full of compassion for people and for yourself, but you are a hypochondriac. The minute a disease is mentioned, your imagination takes off at full speed. You believe you have a lethal infection whereas you catch a mere cold... You are terrified by germs, and a single suggestive thought is all it takes to make you fall apart. Avoid going through medical dictionaries, otherwise you will feel that you have all sorts of diseases, even the least likely ones. However, it is true that your feet and your immune system must be watched. Sometimes, you experience a loss of consciousness which brings about hallucinations or bouts of fever. But you are very obedient with medical practitioners and nurses. Indeed, you feel close to them, and you like to take pills which enable you to escape. To recover, you badly need to be pampered and comforted.
