Astrology and Health, (Part l)
Branch of astrology, which deals with the influence of celestial bodies in our health, is called astro-medicine. Astral signs are ranged from the tip of the body to continue until the end of the legs with the same order as listed in the Zodiac. So, Aries is equivalent to head, Taurus to neck, Gemini to arms and the upper part of the chest, Cancer is equivalent to breasts, Leo to the heart, Virgo and Libra to the middle part of the body, Scorpions equivalent to sexual organs, Sagittarius to thighs, Capricorn to knees, Aquarius to the parts under knee, while Pisces are equivalent to the sole of the foot. Each sign must be given the meaning of the dominant planet, because planets direct certain parts of the body and its organs. However, to create a view of someone’s health is not enough for us to know only its solar sign and its dominant planet. Based on the time of birth it must be done the precise natal card. Then it must be analyzed the whole horoscope, giving priority to those parts of horoscope which deal with health conditions. Planets and the human body: Certain parts of the body belong to certain planets.In astrology each zodiacal sign leads almost to the same part of the body as well as its dominant planet (Aries and Scorpions – Mars and Pluto; Taurus and Libra – Venus; Gemini and Virgo – Mercury; Sagittarius – Jupiter; Capricorn – Saturn; Aquarius – Uranus ; Pisces – Neptune, Cancer -Moon, Leo – Sun). So, during the analysis of health the signs and the planets should be taken into account.
Therefore, this register of the planets and parts of body that respond to them can be implemented in the signs of the zodiac.
Health predispositions of the zodiac signs!
ARIES: Weak Point – head
As the first sign of fire, Aries has to do with the energy, military character and pervasiveness. They are very impulsive and go towards their target without head. That is why the creature is named so. They are dominated by Mars, planet which in astro-medicine is seen as responsible for the strong inflammation and injury. It is seen also as a merit for the fast healing and regeneration of blood force. Aries directs the head and organs which are located in it (brain, nerves, eyes, nose, facial bones, neck axis), then the muscles, and the nerves. Whenever they get hurt they always suffer from head. So it is very important to be protected, for example, while driving a motorcycle. Aries are excessively irritable, lustful and erotic. Because of intolerance and loss of reason they often have sexual intercourse without being protected. For this reason, they are often recovered from sexual diseases, some of which can greatly endanger their fertility. Usually they suffer from high fever, headache and migraine, dental pain, meningitis, stress and anxiety with high blood pressure. They are desirable as blood donors, and to feel better they should sleep more, eat tedious food, and foods rich in vitamins C and E. They are calmed down by the smell of the lavender.
Physical activity: Aries love their body.
Their added physical activity responds to their psycho-physical condition. The best thing for them is running early in the morning, before the sunrise, or in the evening if they do not sleep early. Members of this sign regularly score good results in running. Running is the ideal choice if they want to remove psycho- physical loading and negative energy from themselves. Best would be if they ran in nature, but they can do it even in a closed environment, in the running track.
TAURUS: Sensitive throat
Taurus of earth is the central sign of the sensational spring. Taurus is the symbol of fertility, growth and progress. People who belong to this sign are extremely resistant and persistent, although there inactive and slow actions.

But if they decide to do massage, they want it to be stronger and accompanied with little pain.
