Astrology Anatomy: The Zodiac's 12 Sensitive Areas of the Body
Astrology can predict future events in your life, and that includes areas of health concern. Ancient (and some contemporary) Astrologers believe the Zodiac governs 12 specific areas of the body -- from the top (Aries and the head) to the bottom (Pisces and the foot). The more contemporary Astrologers (from this Century, at least) also believe both the Ruling Signs, and their polar opposites, may equally affect the body in Sign-sensitive areas (Libras, for example, may find themselves with Aries headaches). Here's a summary of the parts of the body potentially affected by the Zodiac, with the area of health concern listed, first, then the ruling Sign and its direct opposite.
The head: Aries-Libra
The head often rules of the heart of quick-tempered, fast-acting Aries. If Aries is angry or agitated, a surge of adrenalin may result in a headache (noticeably, a tension headache). Aries also spend a great deal of time in his or her head, perhaps hoping to avoid a rush to judgment which often causes trouble. Libras (the opposite sign) may likewise find themselves subject to an Aries headache, although their placid temper is not the cause. The best thing for both (and all Signs) to do, when faced with a headache (especially one brought on by tension) is to count to ten, take a break, practice stress-reduction techniques and take a baby aspirin. If a headache continues to migraine status or can not be treated with over-the-counter meds, seek medical help.
