The Zodiac and Astrology
The Zodiac has thought to have originated with the Egyptians. But Astrology has been around and studied for over 2000 years! Since the birth of humanity, we've always looked to the sky for answers, and finding them in the stars was, and still is, no different...
When the Zodiac was created there were 12 symbols assigned to it, each with their own unique symbols, characteristics, elements, directions, colors, planets, cell salts, health issues, etc...
This article covers health concerns-emotionally and physically, in a lighthearted way. Nothing written here is meant to treat or diagnose any health ailments or problems. Speak with a knowledgeable doctor or holistic healer about any health concerns you may have.

Anger management anyone?
- Anger management control and techniques
How to control anger with various management suggestions and techniques.
Aries health tips
- Wear a helmet
- Stock up on pain relievers
- Take an anger management course or 20.
Aries rules the head March 21-April 29th
If you know an Aries well, the fact that they are associated with the head and jaw will be no surprise. Aries are known for rushing headfirst (ramming) into things; projects, thoughts, with little regard for consequences. As a sign of celestial association with the head, most Aries are born with a birthmark on their head or face that is pronounced. The glyph of Aries can at times also be easily seen in the brow line. The Ram symbol associated with Aries is definitely no accident. Lack of patience and quick tempers can easily be observed in this sign. Careless mistakes can become an issue, the problem coming from impatience and impulsiveness. An Aries temper is fast but blows over quickly, kinda like a tropical storm; storms one minute, sunshine the next. An Aries will require you to move on from an argument once they have. Even you Scorpio! Anyone up for some anger management? Anger management classes would benefit an Aries as well as those they love a great deal.
Aries seems to be prone to cuts and burns, usually on the hands and arms. A good motto for an Aries is -ACT FIRST think later, or more like react first-think later. This is a problem because unfortunately, Aries is a sign that really needs to learn to slow down and think things through. Which is not always considered when dealing with hot objects or stoves! Slowing down could prevent a great deal of accidents! Patience Aries, patience!
It would be wise for any Aries to take up stock in a helmet manufacturing company. A lot of them are prone to head, neck, and jaw injuries. TMJ finds a comfy home in an Aries face. These injuries are mainly from their love of sport, competition, new experiences and thirst for adrenaline. Could the ruling planet of war (Mars) have anything to do with this? I believe so. Aries is a sign that likes to push things to the limit, physically and emotionally this takes a toll.
Aries, please wear proper head protection when participating in sports or home remodeling projects. Avoid repetitive tasks that require you to hold your head or neck in awkward positions for extended times, and avoid situations that cause you to lose your temper as often as possible.
In addition to injuries to the head, Aries tend to over analyze and over think things which makes headaches par for the course. They can quickly over-complicate any task! But all this quick and shrewd thinking can bring on migraines, tension headaches, and sometimes dreaded head colds. Tasks with an Aries are started effortlessly but rarely finished. For an Aries to finish a project, I'd suggest finding a Scorpio pal for help and have Aleve on hand.
Taurus health tips
- Avoid food high in fat and salt
- Take good care of your mouth, teeth, throat, and sinuses
- Stop shouting and throwing emotional fits that put stress on your throat
Taurus rules the throat April 20th-May 20th
Taurus rules the throat, neck, tonsils, and general area of the mouth. They love a good feast! Most born under the sign of Taurus has very adept taste buds and need to use them. It's not uncommon to find most Bulls plump and overweight later in life if they don't watch their diet. They love to indulge in fancy, high class, upper scale food, and most have refined tastes because of those fine-tuned palettes. Taurus should avoid junk food when possible, or at the very least make sure to eat smaller quantities. Chew slowly Bulls, and enjoy each meal as if it were your last. Many Taurus, if not properly restricted in their diets will have a rather unpleasant puffiness to the face, eyes, and jowls. Reducing salt in the diet will help with this, as well as reduce fluid retention. Taurus prefers a good lounge session after all that fine dining, and this should be avoided. Exercise for this rather lazy beast is a must to preserve good health! Ask a friend to dress like a matador and get running bulls!
Sore throats, stiff necks, and earaches are common Taurus ailments.
It is important for Taurus to take good care of their teeth and gums. Brush and floss 2x a day, and schedule regular check-ups for potential tooth problems, cavities, and decay.
Because Taurus rules the throat, it is also important for those born under this sign to express their emotions in a healthy way. Avoid screaming matches and shouting or you will end up with a sore throat or laryngitis! Bottling up is another no-no. Get a shrink or seek therapy if you find your emotions are all bottled up in your throat. Then learn how to express those emotions calmly! Chances are there are a lot in there. Internalizing and turning to drugs and alcohol is not good for a bull either.
Gemini health tips
- Practice mind and body connection through meditation and breathing exercises
- Be careful with your upper body when performing any odd activities
- Calm down. Everything is going to be okay
Gemini rules the shoulders, hands, arms and lungs May 21st - June 21st
Gemini's react to everything intellectually first, emotionally second. Even emotional responses are based on intellect. The mind and body must work in sync and harmony for a Gemini to feel healthy. Those born natives of Gemini tend to be high-strung and anxious, even though they won't always outwardly show it. It's not easy having the constant conflict of duality within! Though Gem's wow us with wit and intelligence, great senses of humor, and even temperaments...their internal scattered energy can leave them frazzled and burned out.
Gemini's associate not only with the shoulders, hands, arms, and lungs but also with the central nervous system. Which is why their minds need to learn to co-exist with their bodies. If you are a Gemini, it's best to avoid things that are overly stimulating. Caffeine, nicotine, energy drinks, anything that overstimulates the nerves! You get the idea. This sign needs calmness of the mind and body, simultaneously.
Because Gemini rules the upper body, you may find them to be marvelous jugglers or waitresses! They make good use of their hands, arms and upper body in amazing ways! Also when speaking they are likely flailing their arms about "talking with their hands". All this upper body movement brings on a tendency toward injury. Gemini's should take extra care to protect these parts of the body, especially when participating in activities that require a lot of upper body involvement.
Since Gemini is so involved with the upper body, it is wise that they do not smoke. The upper respiratory tract of a Gemini is sensitive. Be mindful of bones and bone loss, and like the Aries, learn how to relax! Meditation (although good for all signs) could be especially useful for Gemini's. Deep breathing, yoga, anything to relax the mind and exercise the lungs, while promoting connection with the mind and body. A good B-vitamin complex could also benefit this sign and help relieve anxiety and nervousness. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables favors this sign. Keeping the blood oxygenated is beneficial, no smoking! No heavy meals before bed. Avoid excessive milk (which can create mucus and breathing problems), and always pay attention to your breathing. It should be calm, and even, not labored or shallow.
Gemini's are one sign of the Zodiac that will maintain their childish looks well into adult years without much effort. Appearing "forever young" with bright, beautiful intelligent childlike eyes, and happy smiles. They also tend to be quite hilarious, with big hearty genuine laughs.
Cancer Health Tips
- Create for yourself a stable, predictable environment.
- Take good care of your stomach and primary digestive organs.
- Just say NO! To alcohol.
Cancer rules the breasts and stomach June 22-July 22
Cancer is a marvelously sensitive, intuitive and moody sign. This is easily observed in Cancer children, they can be withdrawn one minute, smiling the next, and then throw a tantrum all in the matter of an hour. Exhausting for the parents of a Cancer child! This is a very emotionally demanding sign. Because these crabs are very intuitive, don't be surprised if the Cancers you know are Empaths (Pisces will also seem to easily display the gift of Empathy). A lot of Cancer children are put on medications for mood disorders when they simply can be corrected with dietary changes and environmental stability. Because Cancer is a water sign they tend to run the spectrum of emotions easier and quicker than most, like an ocean's tide. Shield Cancer from negativity, bad news, and drama as often as possible, and always lovingly reassure them that their shell shouldn't become their permanent home. When a Cancer is emotionally hurt they will immediately withdrawal in their shell. Leave them alone until they are ready to come out. Cancers will thrive in routines and familiar environments. They love family and are creatures of habit. It is important if you are a Cancer to have a home environment that can meet the needs of security, privacy, and relaxation. Cancers should also allow themselves a creative outlet to manage all the emotions they effortlessly pick up to avoid taking them on as their own. This could be in the form of art, drawing, journalism, writing, or another activity that makes use of them using their crabby claws, uhhh...I mean hands. Woodworking, automotive restoration, puzzles, etc...
Physically Cancer rules the breasts, breastbone, stomach, digestive system, lower ribs, liver, womb and pancreas.
Cancers love food, especially candy and sweets. Because of this, they can be quite prone to stomach upsets, diarrhea, vomiting, acid reflux and illness that affects the stomach or GI. Emotional upsets also tend to gather in the stomach area (whereas Aries gathers in the head) Cancer gets the stomach. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, fiber, and water will benefit Cancers. Not only for the stomach but for the liver and pancreas as well. Lemon water will benefit the larger organs. Cancers should AVOID alcohol and drugs that create emotional instability. Alcohol should be avoided first and foremost because of the depressive damage it causes the mind. Depression is one of a water signs worst enemies. Alcohol also causes great havoc to the stomach, liver, and pancreas.
Leo Health Tips
- Exercise, cardio work-outs are important for you.
- Mind your posture.
- Seek friends and relationships that boost and stroke your ego!
- Follow your heart, literally.
Leo rules the heart July 23-August 22
Leo is a naturally proud and noble sign. Leo brings to mind the picture of a beautiful majestic lion ruling the forest, it is after-all the king of the jungle. Leo rules the heart, upper back, spine, spleen, and the aorta. But primarily the Heart. Leo's love to have their mane (ego) stroked and tend to take things, literally-to heart. This sign is not the best at handling criticism, so if you must correct them do so as tender and loving as possible. If you want Leo to get something done, make them think it was their idea in the first place. Emotional upsets affect this signs heart and cardiovascular health. Leo's are very protective of those they love, and will stand up to anything threatening their family.
As a Leo, you should focus on taking good care of your arteries, your posture, and avoiding nervous tension. Don't smoke, as smoking clogs the arteries. Make a point to add a good cardio routine to exercise regimens, and avoid diets high in fat, animal protein, and junk food. Leafy greens benefit the Lions health; kale, spinach, and wheat grass.
Leo's can become very stubborn and do not particularly like sudden change, especially when they are not running the show. Don't surprise them by changing or rearranging their environment, you don't want to make them keel over from a heart attack. Another emotional aggravation for Leo's is repetition. Shake things up a bit just to keep them guessing and challenged, but don't go changing their entire world. To keep them emotionally happy; compliment them (a lot! Stroke the mane), don't make drastic changes, and get to the point when speaking. No beating around the bush here! It's best for a Leo to literally "follow their heart" for good health. Stay passionate and be joyful in life.
Virgo Health Tips
- Learn to let go
- Stop over analyzing
- Don't be a door-mat, if you're codependent fix that sh%!
- Avoid heavy spicy fried food that irritates the stomach
Virgo rules the lungs, hips, stomach and lower GI August 23-September 22
Virgo's, also known as worrywarts really need to learn to let things go. Pay attention to your "guts" not only emotionally but physically too.
This sign tends to nit-pick, over-analyze, and have problems with OCD and perfectionism. Virgo is blessed with a critical eye for detail, and an insatiable quest for perfection. It would benefit Virgo to learn how to live "in the now", choose battles wisely, and make simple lifestyle changes to avoid fixation on trivial issues. Because emotional upsets mostly affect the stomach, this is another sign that could benefit from learning to just...let go...
Let go of the need to control and have everything perfect. Stress for this sign will ball up on the stomach and nervous system.
This is a caring and loving sign that will go to the ends of the earth for those they love. Not a bad quality, but they need to learn discernment for those that deserve their love and those that don't. Don't be a door-mat, Virgo. It will only aggravate your stomach and potentially cause ulcers, stomach upsets, indigestion, and gas pains. Avoid highly seasoned food, spicy foods, heavy sauces or gravy and things that are fried and full of fat. A nice cup of peppermint or ginger tea will help Virgo's ease any nervous stomach issues. Vegetables do wonders for Virgo's but should not be raw. Lightly steamed or boiled is easier on their digestive system. As a general rule, they tend to be short on potassium, so foods rich in potassium are suggested. When in doubt, eat a banana.
Virgo's ruling planet is Mercury, which also resides over the brain. This tends to give them some qualities of a hypochondriac and is not good on their already sensitive nervous systems. Stop reading Virgo! Take a nice deep breath. You're not sick or falling apart. Everything is okay! Meditation benefits all signs but is especially great for Virgo's, Gemini's, and Aries. Who tend to be type A personalities, and need to be reminded how to slow down.
Libra Health Tips
- Pay attention to back health, posture, and stress on the lower back
- Drink lots of water, exfoliate, and care for your skin!
- Get plenty of quality time alone!
Libra rules the kidneys, lumbar region, and buttocks September 23-October 22
As the Libra symbol suggests (the scales) balance is key with this sign, balance in all areas of a Libra's life will help maintain optimum health. This is not always easy to achieve, but they benefit greatly from balance with work and play, and all forms of relationships.
Libra's both male and female usually have well-defined backs, chiseled bone structures, and clean curvaceous body lines. Libra's should give extra TLC to back care, as this is the first place over excretion will typically affect their health. They also struggle with various skin issues, acne, breakouts, rashes, and kidney upsets. Therefore, it is very important for Libra's to drink plenty of water, lemon water, and cranberry juice. Not only to cleanse internally but to cleanse the skin as well. Exfoliation benefits Libra's as well, 1-2 times a week minimum would help improve skin health greatly while improving lymph drain and blood circulation. Because this sign can take a toll with the Kidneys, they should avoid high carbonated beverages, sugar, refined food, alcohol, and strive for quality sleep as often as possible. Libra's also thrive on juicing. Celery, cabbage, and cucumbers promote cleansing of the kidneys and are suggested for Libra.
This sign is easily emotionally stimulated and can become overwhelmed. Libra's will always prefer peace and luxury over confrontation. They do best when allowed ample time for being alone, reflecting, and enjoying nature. So if you love a Libra, understand their need for this and give them some space. When your Libra seems unsure of a decision to make, back off and let them have time to think things over. Time alone gives this sign what they need to recharge themselves and promotes overall health. Most of the time Libra is calm, collected, possess a fantastic sense of humor, and they create a sense of mystery or whimsical atmosphere. However, should they lose their temper, watch out! It won't be pretty.
Scorpio Health Tips
- Protect your sexual health at all costs
- Learn to let go a little
- Eat light meals and get plenty of calcium
Scorpio rules the nose and genitals October 23-November 21
Scorpio is a very energetic and imaginative sign, but also highly trans-formative, passionate secretive and brooding. Because of the body parts Scorpio rules, they are prone to menstruation problems and pains, ovarian issues, hemorrhoids, genital infections, STDs, bladder infections, polyps, sore throats, and sinus issues.
Young Scorps should learn and practice safe sex probably more than any other sign. Scorpios can easily get carried away in their own throws of passion and forget to use protection with a lover. This results in unwanted sexual problems! Or unplanned pregnancies when young. So wrap it up! Another word of advice on the relationship section would be to choose a mate wisely. This will avoid scheming plans of vengeance and the wrath of a Scorpions deadly sting. A lot of times a Scorpio will appear "older" than they really are. Probably from all the mischief they get themselves into during the younger years.
Scorpio is an active "get things done" kind of sign. And they don't half-ass tasks. They, as well as Aries, are ruled by the planet Mars. When these two signs work together, they can finish great tasks. Aries starts with brawn, excitement and enthusiasm and Scorpio finishes with brains, and the eye for details.
As with Virgo, Scorpio would learn a lot by letting go. Let go of control and let the chips fall where they may at times. They tend to hover on the "control side" which is not always beneficial to their health. When a situation cannot be controlled as the Scorpion wishes, they can become emotionally sick, these emotions will promptly get projected into their immediate surroundings as well as get negatively internalized causing health issues.
Scorpio (as well as fellow water signs Cancer and Pisces) benefit greatly from vegetarian diets. Foods rich in calcium are also essential for this sign. Calcium phosphate (Scorpios cell salt) will help ward off colds, and sinus infections. This sign also performs better by having light meals and snacks while avoiding large meals, this is especially true for dinners. When it comes to alcohol, Scorpios should avoid it due to its inhibition effects, and the damage it causes their skin and looks. The following foods are suggested for Scorpios; brown rice, millet, wheat grass, spinach, lettuce, celery, cucumbers.
Sagittarius Health Tips
- Moderate all substances!
- Don't drink alcohol
- Learn when to shut your mouth
- Take care of your bones and spine
Alcoholic Liver Disease
- Alcoholic Liver Disease- The reality of drinking
Alcohol is not harmless, long term drinking and binge drinking can have serious health consequences. Alcoholism is a progressive disease which can damage and eventually destroy your liver.
Sagittarius rules the thighs, hips, liver November 22-December 21
Gregarious, outgoing, bold, blunt, jovial, freedom-loving, independent, and travel-oriented are great words used to describe this sign. This sign is just fun! They're also loyal and protective. They tend to have athletic builds and great booties!
Sage's could sometimes benefit from placing a large shoe into their mouths. They tend to speak openly and freely on most topics, which normally is admirable, but not always desired. If you want someone to tell you how it is, ask for a Sagittarius opinion. There is no candy coating here, and don't expect tact. Sorry, it's just not their nature.
Because this sign is so freedom loving, they have a tendency to over-indulge (like a Pisces), and that can show up as problems with the liver. Watch your intake Sage and try the best you can to keep things moderate. As previously stated, most signs (all, in general) bode well avoiding alcohol. But Sagittarius really needs to pay close attention to this. Health problems can quickly appear from a toxic liver, and drinking is just bad news for this sign. So chomp on your leafy greens, kale, spinach, and drink plenty of lemon water. 3-4 small meals a day also work well for this sign, as opposed to large meals. Because this sign tends to gain weight in the thighs and hips, avoid heavy cream and butter. Avoiding food high in fat will also benefit the liver and help prevent the lower body weight gain.
Because this is a fire sign, they tend to be athletic, so sports injuries are common. Take care of your bones, hips, and spine. And don't stop sports or exercise as you age. Sagittarius needs physical activity even more so in the later years.
Emotional upsets can come from financial generosity (and your open mouth). This sign loves a good time, and if you're around them, they'll want you to have a good time too. If you want to know where the after party is, follow a Sage at closing time.
They spare no expense! This doesn't always go over well with a spouse or for other financial obligations. If the Sage socializing can be curbed a bit, you can save some money, preventing emotional upsets over financial stress, and monthly money shortages.
Most of the time, this sign is vigorous and robust with very few health complaints.
Capricorn health tips
- Take care of your bones and teeth
- Try to maintain a predictable schedule with all aspects of your life
- Avoid emotional ties that push your jealousy buttons
- Make time to laugh and play just for the hell of it
Capricorn rules the joints, bones and teeth December 22-January 19
When it comes to physical health, Capricorn is another hearty sign, living a full life to a rotten and ripe old age. They do however run into issues with bones and teeth. Arthritis, gout, and stiff joints tend to be a problem. Oddly though, Capricorn generally have gorgeous smiles and beautiful teeth, just watch that dental care as you age, tooth decay is common for the caps. So unless you want a mouth full of caps, make dental hygiene a priority.
Capricorn also tends to do most things in binges; over or under working and eating. They sway from one end of the scale to the other. So maybe they will binge eat one day, then skip meals the next. A regimented schedule of eating, working, playing, and sleeping would benefit Capricorns. Find balance in all you do dear earth sign. Colds and flu don't hit this sign hard, or often unless fatigued, so not much worry there. But mind your energy levels.
Like a Libra, Capricorn's need to take good care of their skin, especially their scalps. Often you develop dry skin or acne as well as dandruff regardless of your age or hormonal levels. So stock up on head and shoulders, and make sure to exfoliate really well.
Because a Capricorn will go long hours at work, they tend to run into issues with fatigue. Again this is a matter of finding balance even if you have to force it. Fatigue can cause issues with the immune system being lowered, which invites illness. There is plenty of time Capricorn, relax, you don't need to get everything done at once.
Emotionally, Capricorns can run into stress with jealousy when it comes to those they love. Taurus seems to have this issue too. It's not uncommon for this sign to scheme up an affair in their heads with someone they love, regardless of it being true. Internalizing this raises stress levels, it would help any Capricorn to have a very open and devoted partner. When you have an idea in your head of crazy behavior in a spouse or lover, it would be best for you to suit yourself with someone that can accept this. The best sign to help you feel secure and trusting is a fellow earth sign, but particularly a Virgo. The majority of the time, Capricorns are very emotionally even keel. They are not emotional extremist, which makes having one in your life pretty pleasant unless you are their lover. They are not impulsive or careless with love affairs or relationships like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Matters of the heart are not treated lightly, so it is important for them to avoid flaky signs that tend to love playfully and be non-committal (fire/water signs).
Like any earth sign, this is a sign of practicality. They usually don't do things unless they have a purpose. You won't find their homes cluttered with useless junk. Things need to be functional and have a purpose. With this in mind, Capricorns need to remember to lighten up, laugh, play, and don't take things so seriously. Sure jokes don't always have a purpose, but laughter is the best medicine to keep the spirit light. This sign is not one to wear their emotions on their sleeve; dignity, respect, power, tradition, and image matter to them. This can at times make them appear "cold" or "aloof". Depression and anxiety can affect this sign terribly, but learning to look at the world less seriously will help lift the blues and keep the nerves calm. It is important that this sign has fun and plays, just for the sake of it. This is not easy for them but will do wonders for their mental and physical health.
Aquarius health tips
- Ask for help
- Avoid food that over stimulates the nervous system
- Give your legs and shins extra care through-out your life
- Take good care of your blood, circulation, and cardiovascular health
Aquarius rules the calves, shins, ankles and circulatory system January 20-February 18
Aquarius is a very independent sign, always willing to put others needs ahead of their own and reject help, fearing it may make them dependent. It's good to help others, but this sign could usually benefit from a lesson in humility, knowing that help does not equal dependence. To me, this sign is truly the sign of 9 lives. I've known many Aquarians completely beat down from life and yet they get up, dust off, and strive on. Even Aquarians I literally saw at death's door. They are not human! They can't be reasoned with!
This sign is intelligent, charismatic, sarcastic, romantic, eccentric and sentimental. On the bad side, they can be stubborn, unpredictable, grand manipulators, glorious liars, emotionally detached, and conniving with money; true hustlers. Their impatience and lack of "seeing the full picture" or only seeing "with rose-colored glasses" of sorts can cause nervous system problems. Like the Virgo, they are also prone to worry. This sign benefits from stress reduction (as any other) but a diet full of fruits and veggies as well as a strong B Complex vitamin would help them keep health issues at bay. Suggested foods for this sign to keep the circulatory system running well would be; oysters, radishes, lobster, lemons, ocean fish, clams, tuna, lettuce, apples, pears, beets, radishes, and lemons. Other things that stimulate blood circulation is good for this sign; cayenne pepper, chili, and any other peppers. This sign is a junk food junkie (much like Taurus), but you'll never know it because they'll be gluttonous in hiding. They tend to have vibrant and healthy stomachs so this usually is not an issue, but they should stay away from foods packed with salt, carbonated drinks, sweets, and caffeine. Things that over-stimulate the nerves should be avoided.
If an Aquarian takes up a sport such as running, they need to properly care for and protect their feet, ankles, calves, and shins. They are prone to shin splints, leg cramps, fluid retention in the lower limbs, and varicose veins. Aquarius could also find themselves with vision and kidney disorder troubles during their lifetime. Vision and kidneys should be supported by diet and regular eye exams.
Another common issue for this sign is allergy and sinus issues, avoid dairy milk. Keep your neck warm in cold months. Avoid things that will upset your sinus passages. A lot of those born under this sign will have a hard time tolerating any type of pet dander, so make sure you adopt a pet that won't make you sneeze. Fish come to mind. Hairless cats and short-haired dogs may be okay too.
Aquarian s much like Leo's need to focus on heart health, but this is more to do with keeping the blood balanced and detoxed.
Aquarian's are amazing signs, they are loyal to those they love, they will cheer you on in life when you are down. They genuinely care about the human race, and most are blessed with exceptional health despite hiccups along the way. They are not a sign that goes down without a fight, many fights usually.
Pisces Health Tips
- Protect your tootsies!
- Drink plenty of water and maintain your lymph and blood health
- Don't over-indulge
- Avoid drugs and alcohol
Pisces rules the toes, feet, and mucous membranes February 19-March 20
Pisces kind of got the short end of the stick when it comes to Astrology health. This sign is most likely to have the most sensitive nervous system and worst over-all health ailments. Pisces kinda got the whammy, being that it is the last sign of the Zodiac, it tends to suffer from any and all major health issues. Pisces can easily emotionally take on any characteristic of its fellow signs. Full of imagination, charm, and self-deception, Pisces should be careful with whom they keep their company. This is probably the most emotional and sensitive of water signs, and their health can reflect that.
But let us start with the feet. This sign governs this area of the body. They tend to make fantastic dancers and have shapely, beautiful feet. They need to take extra care of their feet. Wear proper fitting footwear, to avoid corns, callus, and blisters. Swelling and allergic reactions to drugs are commonplace for Pisces complaints.
It is wise for Pisces to keep fluids regularly moving in the body. Drink lots of water, more than other signs to keep mucous membranes clear, promote lymph fluid drainage, and maintain clean blood.
Because of their emotional irregularity, this sign should really stay away from alcohol and drugs. This sign is probably the most likely to develop addiction issues, due to their love of imagination and desire to alter their reality. Keep a regular routine as much as possible, and have balance and moderation in all things; diet and exercise. If left to their own devices Pisces will happily over-indulge in all things. Find an earth sign friend (Virgo, Capricorn, or Taurus) to help keep you emotionally grounded! Fish should also find healthy outlets for their emotions. They make fantastic writers, poets, dancers, novelists, and musicians. These outlets provide healthy ways for them to keep their head in the clouds without toxic repercussions that drugs and alcohol would cause.
Pisces is also highly sensitive and in-tune with their environments. They have a keen sense of smell, hearing, and temperature sensitivities. When things are "off" they will sense it and almost instantly be affected by it. It's important for Pisces to dress "weather appropriate" to avoid exposure to bacteria and viruses. Being that Pisces is a rather frail and sensitive sign, they are more prone to infections. Get your flu shots Fish! As for your health, just follow every suggestion for every other sign and you'll be just fine...

This was a very clever approach to astrology. I'm a Leo and I watch both my posture and my heart!
