Most people know that their Sun Sign has certain personality traits. Cancerians may be worriers, Arians impulsive, Capricorns overly self-critical etc. But did you know that your Sun Sign may also impact your health?
Aries being the first sign of the Zodiac rules the head. Ariens may be prone to headaches, migraines, and dental or gum issues. As Aries is ruled by Mars, the hot red planet, Ariens may suffer from nosebleeds, anaemia or other blood disorders. When feverish their temperature may be 3 or 4 degrees higher than other Zodiac signs.
Taurus rules the neck and the ears. Taureans may be prone to tonsillitis, laryngitis and sore throats, and tend to permanently wear a scarf or polo necks in Winter. They are also prone to thyroid issues, and physical issues with vertebrae in the neck.
Gemini rules the lungs, shoulders, arms and fingers. They may be prone to nervous disorders due to their restless nature. But common Gemini complaints relate to asthma, bronchitis, pleurisy, plus issues with the shoulder (i.e. rotator cuff) arms and fingers (i.e. arthritis, chilblains).
Cancer rules the stomach, breast, upper lobes of the liver and the pancreas. Cancerians may be prone to sore breasts before their periods, or mastitis whilst breastfeeding. Other health concerns may be indigestion, gastric ulcers, recurrent hiccoughs or fatty liver.
Leo’s wear their heart on their sleeve and are ruled by the Sun. Their weak area tends to be the heart, so they may develop high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, hardening of the arteries, angina etc Another concern with Leos are their spine, with backaches, slipped discs or even congenital issues such as scoliosis.
Virgo people make excellent Doctors, Nurses, Physiotherapists etc. But they can be awful patients as they fear the worst and know too much detail! Virgo rules the lower lobes of the liver, duodenum, the intestines and the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight!). Virgos may be prone to digestive complaints such as Chron’s, Ulcerative Colitis, IBS or duodenal ulcers. Nervous exhaustion may be a common affliction as they’re not good at relaxing.
Libra is and air sign ruled by the planet Venus, and Venus loves to recline on a sofa eating and drinking. Libra rules the kidneys, lower spine and the skin. Health issues for languorous Librans may relate to kidney infections, kidney stones, eczema, dermatitis, or lumbago (lower back pain).
Scorpio is a water sign and rules the bladder, the prostate gland, the uterus, the lower section of the colon and the nose. They may suffer from fibroids, ovarian cysts, or menstrual irregularities. They may be prone to cystitis or weak bladder tone, prostatitis, chronic constipation, fistulas, or nasal issues (i.e. polyps, adenoids etc)
Sagittarius is a fire sign and rules the hips, the sacral region of the spine, and the sciatic nerve. These Centaurs (in mythology they were half human, half horse) tend to be afflicted with conditions such as sciatica, quadriceps or hamstring issues, or hip joint issues.
Capricorn rules the skin, all joints in the body and the hair. They are also ruled by Saturn which is considered a cold and dry planet. This may make Capricorns feel the cold more than other signs, be gloomy and despondent when unwell and less likely to seek medical attention. When you try to help them, they may also resist and close up!
Aquarius is an air sign and rules the lower leg and the ankles, so Aquarians may suffer with tight calves, calf pain on walking (intermittent claudication), weak ankles and be prone to leg ulcers or varicose veins. They may also be concerned about swollen ankles or lower leg oedema.
Pisces is a water sign and rules the feet and the fibrin part of the blood that aids clotting. Pisceans may also be attracted to alcohol or recreational drugs as a form of escapism. Common complaints suffered by Pisceans include gout, bunions, corns, flat feet, plantar faciitis or swollen feet.
