The Zodiac and Weight Loss

Disclaimer: 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

which diet for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

In the field of weight loss like in any other field, you show no restraint. What is of interest to you? The methods worthy of boot camp preparation which advocate self-surpassing and inflict sport activities bordering on torture on their adepts. You also appreciate turbo-treatments because you want everything to be quick. In this category, ultrasound devices eliminating curves may be efficient within a not too extended period. Indeed, as soon as you decide to tackle a problem, one can rest assured that it is practically solved. In short, motivation is not an issue, and you spare no effort. Nevertheless, you should not make the mistake of going too fast, particularly if you are going on a diet. You ought to steer clear of Dunkan-style diets for instance. Although the results may be astounding to you who want to get a toned silhouette, you must think of the side effects. You can rely on your competitive spirit to perform better than anyone else; this is the demand of your strong ego.

which diet for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Going on a diet? Watch out! Your epicurean nature tolerates no curse word. Reading the description of the prescribed low-calorie meals, with herbal teas and rice cakes or soups and yoghurts on special occasions, is enough to make you feel depressed. This does not suit you, so it is useless to insist. However, once you have decided to slim down, you are willing to invest much time, effort, and even money. This is your asset! With seriousness, as if it were a job, you concoct delicious little dishes like those of Michel Guérard, and even better, you make a one-week reservation in a specialised resort in which professional care is available. Why not Henri Chenot’s widely praised wellness centre, in Italy? More prosaically, endurance sports such as running will yield good results. You can eat fruits and vegetables at will, for your Venusian sign is inclined to become a vegetarian.

More intellectual than physical, you are able to follow a strict diet without effort, especially when your mind is busy. Therefore, use this asset, which makes things easier for you. Go to as many shows as you can, or even better, enrol on all sorts of courses in order to dispel cravings. Since you are curious and overwhelmed by information, you are always among the first people who taste the latest diets. In 2015, the alkaline method or the biochemical approach replaces the 2014 trends, i.e. the 5:2 diet, of which you are aware already. You sometimes bother to explain to the members of your entourage, not without humour, why the new diets are more convincing than the former ones. Indeed, with your typical analytic mind, you manage to adapt them to your personal taste.

which diet for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

You tend to regress to childhood or to move backwards whenever what you ought to do is unpleasant. Come on, make an effort! You are exactly the type of person who requires coaching. Whether with a certified trainer recommended to you – you need to feel comfortable – or with Internet applications or support, personalised monitoring will prevent you from giving up. You learn to cut out sugary comfort foods on the one hand, and you strengthen your motivation on the other hand. Try to imagine yourself slim and in great shape for the summer. However, take your time and heed your distrust and your biases. Fortunately, the approaching shiny days are most likely to make you follow the road leading to the swimming pool. You can also resort to soothing slimming creams, therapeutic massages, or devices meant to do the work for you. Finish the day with a mug of herbal tea sweetened with honey which will dissipate your stress and make you sleep.

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

which diet for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

How to make you lose weight? It is very simple; by hurting your pride, of course. Do not hesitate to display on your fridge a picture of a skinny model to prevent you from indulging in your cravings whenever you are wildly tempted. Moreover, count on luxury products having high dietetic qualities such as oysters, costly fishes, asparagus, or flavoured teas sold in exclusive gourmet grocery stores such as Fauchon. You can also have nice little dishes especially cooked for you by your fitness coach. Because it goes without saying that, like a star, you have your personal trainer! He is requested to be lenient, for it is established that your figure is already perfect. Nevertheless, he needs to make you feel in tip-top condition for the summer. Your bathroom abounds with the most expensive cosmetics and sophisticated devices which knead you without too much pain. In addition, you have registered for the best fitness club in the neighbourhood, and it is out of the question to be sweating in dull clothes. Losing weight, yes, but with a flourish!

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

which diet for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

While many diets are nothing but smoke and mirrors, there is no danger that you fall into a trap. Granted, you are naturally distrustful, and as a result, you do not listen to marvellous but unreliable promises. It is impossible to lose 10 kilos in 15 days without danger or exaggeration. Moreover, dietetics is your favourite topic. You know by heart your calorie chart, even though you are aware that this is not the only important factor, and no food glycaemic index is a secret for you. This year, you are considering trying a diet based on a more holistic approach such as those featuring organic produce or those compelling you to rethink nutrition for good. You avidly read books on the ravages of sugar. Your top priority should be to reduce your nervousness, since it may prove harmful.

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

which diet for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Balance. This is of course your mantra, including when you try to lose some weight. Firstly, do not yield to your impressionable side, and do not systematically test the diets advertised by the guru of the day. Trust your true nature, and find out which diet is efficient. People may urge you to follow the advice of Jean-Michel Cohen, who is glamorous enough to suit you, and who promotes a mild and sensible method. This is for you. Common sense prompts you to avoid pre-meal drinks, especially if they consist of sweet beverages or potato chips. Since you are sociable, instead of turning down every invitation, try to find a way around. Yes to Champagne and to vegetable sticks, provided you do not dip them in mayonnaise sauce. Prefer light and refined food: soups, sushis, bentos, or verrines, so that the feast of the eyes makes up for the small quantities. Lastly, nothing can boost your motivation better than the affection of your friends and relatives – or your sweetheart. Being attractive gives wings and does not make you feel hungry!

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

which diet for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

The prospect of going on a diet tends to turn you into extreme mode. Since you want to get results, and since you are restless, sometimes masochistic, you may be willing to try diehard slimming treatments. On the upside, you belong to the category of those who have the willpower to resist temptations. Food deprivation and constraints do not deter you. You are able to undergo a training programme tailored for athletes, to adopt macrobiotic food, and to make sustained physical efforts. Owing to your sharp intuition, you spot what may have a positive or negative impact on your metabolism. So-called magical recipes may interest you as well. However, do not overdo for the sake of testing your capacities. To state it clearly, medical practitioners agree that losing weight too quickly may prove dangerous, and that one must listen to the signals the body emits. If you have headaches, or if you feel tired, it is most likely that you are wearing yourself out.

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

which diet for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

How to put a hedonist on a diet? This is the dilemma of Sagittarius, who tends to enjoy nice little dishes and to be self-lenient. Privations? They are scheduled for the day of your death. In the meantime, there is always a good reason to open a bottle or to have a feast. To reach your target, your intellectual curiosity needs to be aroused. Bet on the Cretan diet and its hearty servings which are good for your health; otherwise, try Thai or Japanese specialties, for they are quite light, and they satisfy your taste for exoticism. Forget dishes flooded with sauce. You can take advantage of your penchant for sports and for challenges in general. You are the first person ready to get started, and although you do not say so openly, you are willing to show your worth. Wake up the thoroughbred lying dormant within you!

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

which diet for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

How to find out that a Capricorn is on a diet? This is not an easy task because in your everyday life, at any the moment of the year, you set an iron disciple for yourself. You often have a dry and, fortunately, bony constitution. If for some reason, you wish to become slimmer, it is most likely that you will do so with the professionalism that you show in all fields. Your preference goes to the most stringent diets, including macrobiotic diet. You appreciate the Eastern philosophy underlying this technique, and you agree with the principle of nourishing the body in the most appropriate manner, with neither deficiency nor excess, in keeping with the Yin and Yang theory. In the area of sport, you are fond of those requiring endurance, and which are often practiced alone: marathon, mountaineering, or just trekking suit you very well.

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

which diet for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

The 5:2 method? Done. The diet made of cabbage soups? Why not? The so-called Palaeolithic formula, comprising meat, raw produce and berries? Quite tempting too! To tell the truth, one may think that the most bizarre programmes are the most likely to work, with you. While this is not entirely wrong, it is a bit simplistic. Since you are both curious and intellectual, you scour the Internet websites and forums for a confirmation of the positive effects of those diets. You thus grasp the opportunity to establish new contacts with people from all walks of life who are looking for the fitness Grail like yourself. Spiritual matters are an additional wonderful option. You are among those who think that hypnosis and alternative therapies work fine, including in the area of weight loss. In your opinion, the body conveys messages and qualms. This is why you endeavour to gain wisdom and, therefore, more serenity.

To regain fitness, follow the trail leading to water. Firstly because your nonchalant nature cannot be rushed. Secondly, because this environment enables you to slim down immediately using natural methods. Book a thalassotherapy session. You will be pampered the way you expect, and you will be able to ponder over your eating habits. You are fond of fishes and seafood, of course. If you cannot afford to go to an expensive thalassotherapy resort, do your best to create a similar background at home. There is a full range of creams and various products drawn from the treasures of the sea. The only thing you need to do is to apply them gently. You enjoy massages because they give you the possibility to get rid of unsightly curves without too many efforts. As for sports, should choose any discipline matching your Water element. In addition to swimming, a widening range of aquatic activities is available, both in indoor swimming pools and in outdoor settings: water biking, zumba, rowing, stand-up paddling or windsurfing, etc. may work wonders.
