Science and astrology don’t always see eye to eye, but that doesn’t stop many people looking to the stars for guidance. In fact, according to a 2013 poll, almost 30% of Americans believe in astrology. Astrologists use the movement and positions of the stars and other celestial objects to draw information about life events, personality, and even human health.
You might be one of those who relate to what the stars say about your personal health, so keep on reading to find out what your zodiac sign reveals about your health.
Aquarius (January 20th- February 18th)
Aquarians have realized that you have a tendency to overthink pretty much everything – and thinking too much is conducive to more anxiety and stress. This is not the only thing Aquarians tend to overdo – they also tend to over-exercise because they believe that they have to be constantly engaged in something and this can lead to injury.
If Aquarians don’t take time to relax, astrologists believe that their fast pace could lead to arthritis, swollen limbs, heart problems, asthma, varicose vein, and allergic reactions.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Unlike Aquarians, those who fall under the Pisces zodiac sign are able to go with the flow. However, they do have the tendency to let their emotions get the better of them from time to time. This can eventually lead to an overtaxed nervous system and mental issues.
Furthermore, according to astrologists, since those who fall under the Pisces zodiac sign are so idealistic, they run the risk of severe disappointment. If this disappointment becomes overwhelming, it could cause foot problems (corns and bunions) and a weakened immune system that leaves them vulnerable to a number of diseases.
Aries (March 21st – April 20th)
Aries love excitement and action, and have a very headstrong attitude. While this can help get them very far in life, it can also lead to headaches, migraines, and strokes due to too much stress. Aries usually have tight schedules and don’t leave much time for rest, hence the abnormally high levels of stress.
Therefore, according to astrologers, if you’re an Aries and are constantly complaining of back, shoulder, and chest pains, it might just be your zodiac sign. Allow yourself a rest day and schedule a massage soon!
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Taureans are notoriously stubborn and difficult people to deal with, although they are said to be excellent musicians and singers.
However, those who fall under the Taurus zodiac tend to experience more sicknesses than others – things like throat and ear infections, tonsillitis, thyroid problems, allergies, and colds. Furthermore, they also have trouble adjusting to new environments, which is why they might suffer from allergic reactions when they travel somewhere new.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Geminis are usually lively and outgoing, but all of this communication and energy required to socialize can lead to increased anxiety, insomnia, and other mental health issues. Furthermore, Geminis can suffer from fatigue and laziness if they don’t find a balance between their energy levels.
They also tend to think a lot, leading to stomach issues. This might be why they’re also prone to catching the flu as well as other illnesses such as the common cold or tendonitis.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancers are very in tune with their emotions. Unfortunately, though, this fixation can lead to anxiety and depression. Furthermore, they also tend to drown their emotions using food, which can often result in weight management and digestive issues.
It’s also really hard for cancers to let go sometimes and this can cause all sorts of issues such as indigestion, nausea, and acid reflux.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Leos are always on the go. They have no idea how to slow down, so they have very fast metabolisms. Unfortunately, this can lead to heart issues and blocked arteries due to poor eating habits while rushing about to get to their next event.
Due to an always-racing mind, Leos also tend to experience sleep problems such as insomnia. If you’re a Leo and this sounds like you, you should make an effort to slow down once in a while.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Everyone doubts themselves sometimes, but Virgos struggle with this the most. They often have no belief in themselves which can lead to depression and even emotional eating. As a result, they might often experience gut issues such as constipation and ulcers.
Virgos can benefit greatly from yoga or mindful meditation to keep intrusive thoughts at bay.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras thrive on pleasure, but they often struggle to find the right balance. As a result, they are prone to constipation or diarrhea, especially if they don’t stay on top of their diets.
To add to this, Libras also tend to have sensitive skin, so staying hydrated will help both the epidermis and the intestines.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Scorpios are usually great at managing their heavy workload, but this does mean that they might occasionally let their self-care slip by the wayside, making it more likely for them to end up with a cold, the flu, or another irritating illness.
Scorpios also need to learn how to keep their emotions in check and to not let their hormones get the best of them with new partners.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Those who fall under the Sagittarius zodiac sign are fun, outgoing, adventurous people, but this restlessness can lead to trouble. They tend to have problems with their hips, thighs, and vision.
This sign is very accident prone, so they should make sure to watch their steps.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Capricorns are ambitious and determined, but these characteristics can lead to stubbornness, which can then bring about fragile and weakened bones. They can also suffer from weak bones if they don’t manage to get enough calcium in their diet.
Capricorns love order and discipline, but this might lead to them obsessing over things such as diet and exercise, leading to stress and over or under eating.
Of course, medical astrology is just a theory and many people don’t conform to their astrological sign. Whatever month you happened to be born in, it’s a good bet that eating healthily and exercising regularly will help keep you in the best possible health.Print This Post To toggle between English & Malayalam Press CTRL+g
