What is the Zodiac?
If you could observe the motion of the Sun against the stars for an entire
year, it would appear to trace out a large circle in the sky that we call
the "ecliptic". This circle also happens to be the plane of the Earth's
orbit around the Sun. The zodiac is a thin band of the sky on either side of
the ecliptic. The word "zodiac" literally means "circle of life", since most
of the zodiac signs are animals or people.
What are Zodiac Signs?
The zodiac is divided into 12 signs, each 30 degrees long. The cycle of
zodiac signs starts with Aries, which begins at the spot on the ecliptic
where the Sun is on the first day of spring. These 30 degree sections of the
sky are actually blocks of space, not time.
Zodiac signs are often confused in the popular mind with "sun signs". When a
person says, "I'm an Aries!", what they're really saying is they were born
at a time of the year when the Sun is in the zodiac sign of Aries. Because
our calendar is designed to mimic the motions of the Sun around the zodiac,
the Sun is in Aries at nearly the same time period each year (roughly March
20th or 21st to April 19th or 20th). Hence the 12 sun signs are like months
of a calendar based on the zodiac. They represent time, not space.
The motions of the other planets through the zodiac signs can be quite
irregular, compared to the Sun's motion. On average, they range from the
fast moving Moon (which spends about 2-1/2 days in each sign) to the slow
poke Pluto (roughly 12 to 24 years in each sign).

Your wild by night and active by day. You need wholegrain foods
to keep your body full of vitality. When Aries, which has rule over
the head, is on the Ascendant, we have a person whose actions are
impulsive and aggressive. He acts and speaks quickly. An excess of
life force is generated by these people. This is intensified when
the dynamic Mars, which is the ruler of Aries, is also in Aries on
the Ascendant, or when the life-giving sun is there. When these
planets add their vital energies to the Ascendant, we have a person
who is very apt to dissipate his forces. people who express Aries
very strongly are apt to be quick of temper of an explosive kind,
but will not hold spite. Those with Aries on the Ascendant, or with
the sun or Mars there, are quick to anger but also ready to forgive.
Aries rules the head, the cerebral hemispheres of the brain, the
upper jaw, the eyes, and the face. The nose, however, is ruled by
the martial sign of Scorpio. Aries is hot, dry, and inflammatory.
Aries people with a slight cold or disturbance of health may have a
very high temperature. In illness their fever will often be from
three to four degrees higher than that of the persons born under the
watery of airy signs. Under planetary afflictions these people are
subject to brain fever, dizziness, nosebleed, neuralgia,
inflammation of the cerebral hemispheres, and diseases of the brain
and face. They frequently suffer from a rush of blood to the head.
The will of the patient plays a great part in the success of
healing. People under positive signs are most likely to respond, for
they make personal effort to help the healer, while negative-sign
people are prone to follow the line of least resistance and to be
neglectful in following the instructions of the healer.
You love being touched, so stock up with natural yoghurts
and fruits which will keep your skin radiant. Taurus has rule over the
region of the neck, the ears, palate, larynx, tonsils, thyroid gland, lower
jaw, occipital region, cerebellum, atlas, and cervical vertebrae, vocal
chords, carotid arteries, jugular vein, and the pharynx. The Taurean is very
stubborn and tenacious. Taurus being a negative sign, when a Taurean
contracts a disease, he holds on to it tenaciously. He has great fear of
sickness, and on account of this fear he makes a poor doctor or nurse,
whereas the Arian, being under Aires which is a positive sign, will go into
a sick room without fear and quickly throw off the disease. If you have a
patient who has Taurus rising or the sun in Taurus, never let him think he
is much ill, for his fear of sickness will often bring on a spell of it. The
Taurean has a tendency to take on flesh in middle life. Being short and
thickest as a rule, he becomes very fleshy about the neck and base of the
skull. This has a tendency to cause the swelling of glands, tonsillitis,
quinsy, and various diseases of the organs of the neck; also polypi.
All that nervous energy you burn devitalizes skin cells, so eat
plenty of raw vegetables to maintain it. Gemini has rule over the arms,
hands, shoulders, lungs, thymus gland, upper ribs, trachea, bronchi,
capillaries, breath, and oxygenation of the blood. The Gemini person is
subject to nervous troubles. Gemini being one of the common signs, a person
born with this sign rising is often very careless of his health and habits,
and on this account we find more tubercular patients among Gemini people
than among people of any one of the other eleven signs. Gemini being classed
among the positive signs, the Gemini person can, if he is given the least
bit of help, often throw off a disease. The diseases to which Gemini is most
subject are pulmonary troubles, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, consumption,
pleurisy, and nervous disorders.
Feed your hair and nails with calcium rich foods, such as milk,
cheese, and green vegetables. This will help to sustain your sensual healthy
glow. When we have a horoscope to diagnose for one who has the watery and
negative Cancer rising, we may look for one who is low in vitality; one who
is very timid yet loath to follow the advice of others. Cancer people are
apt to do the opposite from that which they are advised to do. They are also
full of suspicion, and on account of lack of faith in others they are
difficult to reach; but when their faith has once been established, they are
most loyal and ready to cooperate. A little praise or appreciation will
often win them over. They are unduly sensitive, and when hurt do not forget
it readily. When the sun is in this watery sign, the native has more
vitality than when it is rising, for the sun is the giver of life and
energy. Cancer has rule over the stomach, diaphragm, the mammae, upper lobes
of the liver, thoracic duct, chymification, peristalsis, the pancreas,
gastric vein, and the serum of the blood. The afflictions which may be
classed under the sign of Cancer are indigestion, hiccough, flatulency,
dropsy, and sclerosis. Cancer people are very fond of food and are usually
hearty eaters. Consequently they are often afflicted with diseases which
originate in wrong diet; especially do we find this so with the people have
Saturn in Cancer. This planet has a restricting influence, and wherever he
is found he robs the corresponding organ of its fluids. When in Cancer he
gives a desire for pastry and sweets.
Keep up your natural healthy look by drinking plenty of mineral
water and fresh fruit juices. When we have to deal with a patient with Leo
on the Ascendant, we have one with great vital energy, one who will not
readily succumb to disease. The Leo usually puts up a brave fight to
overcome without calling upon others for help, but when he gives up, he is
usually very sick; he recovers rapidly from illness, however. His pride will
not permit him as a rule to become a charge upon others. Being a positive
sign the greatest handicap to the Leo is impulse. He feels he must do
everything with a very great amount of energy, which is detrimental to the
health of the parts of the body ruled by this vital sign: the heart, aorta,
vena cava, dorsal region of the spine, and the spinal cord. The sun, which
is the life giver, rules this sign of Leo and also has rule over the vital
etheric fluid coming through the spleen, which is the gateway of the solar
forces. Through the spleen the sign of Leo draws its strength largely. We
find those born with this sign rising very vital and full of force,
especially if the sun is also in Leo; but by the destructive use of their
surplus energy they are often afflicted with heart trouble of various kinds,
also spinal troubles. They suffer frequently with disturbance of the spleen,
which has an effect upon the activities of the blood, causing an excess of
white blood corpuscles, which are destroyers and not policemen of the blood
stream as medical science claims.
You're a health guru anyway but keep your lean hips and slender
legs looking great by eating garlic and herbs. Virgo is a feminine and
negative sign, the second of the earthy triplicity, and has less power of
resistance that the fixed sign of Leo. Virgo may stand considerable strain,
however, being of a nervous and wiry temperament; still when the Virgoan
gives up, he finds it very hard to rise and shake off an illness. Being of a
negative disposition he is apt to let circumstances rule him, and does not
assert his will power to overcome. Virgo is the natural sixth house sign,
the house which has rule over sickness; hence when Virgo people once get
into the clutches of sickness, they are apt to become chronic invalids.
Therefore though such people make excellent nurses, they should be advised
against this vocation and avoid sick rooms and hospitals, for they are like
sponges and every ready to take on the disease of their patients. Virgo
rules the abdominal region, intestines, the lower lobes of the liver, the
spleen, the duodenum, and the sympathetic nervous system. The afflictions
which may be classed under the sign of Virgo are determined largely by the
planets which may be afflicted in this sign. Cramps in the intestines, wind,
colic, malnutrition, diarrhea, constipation, peritonitis, cholera,
dysentery, worms, catarrh of the bowels, and appendicitis may result from
afflictions in Virgo.
You have great, sparkling eyes, keep them clear by eating
cucumber, carrot and spinach. Libra is one of the signs wherein the sun is
weak. The sun is symbolized by Sampson, who is minus his strength, for
Delilah, who is the feminine Virgo, has shorn him of his power, which was in
his hair, representing the sun's rays. As the sun enters Libra, it changes
from north to south declination; and as Libra is the sign of Saturn's
exaltation, the sun's rays at this point, the crossing of the equator, are
weakest. Libra people on this account are not always able to rise above
physical conditions. Their moods waver like the symbol which represents the
sign, the scales. At one time Librans are up in the seventh heaven of
happiness and optimism, but at the least mental disturbance they may drop to
the very bottom of pessimism and despair. Idealism is well developed in the
Libran. The Libran patient should, if possible, never be discouraged in
whatever he has set his heart upon doing, for shatter his ideals and down
goes one side of the scales into the very deepest discouragement, which
often causes ill health. The Libran should cultivate equilibrium.
Physiologically this sign rules the kidneys, the lumbar region of the spine,
the skin, the ureters, which are the tiny ducts running between the kidneys
and the bladder, and the vaso-motor system. The afflictions from with the
Libran is most likely to suffer are Bright's disease, lumbago, disturbed
urine. The disease depends greatly upon the planets afflicting: if Saturn,
there is a scarcity of urine; if Jupiter, an excess, etc. Nephritis, eczema,
and diabetes are also diseases from which the Libran is likely to suffer.
Mysterious and hypnotic, you need to eat plenty of protein-rich
fresh fish, shellfish and seaweed to vitalize your sultry skin. The martial,
watery sign of Scorpio is one of the least understood signs of the entire
twelve. Scorpio produces a number of types. Usually the Scorpio person is of
a secretive, timid, retiring nature, one who does not talk of his affairs.
But there is another type of Scorpio who is ready to argue at "the drop of
the hat," holding our for his point, and he can become very cruel. He
usually has an explosive temper, which may, if the horoscope has
afflictions, undermine the health. The greatest danger to the health of the
Scorpio, however, comes from the generative organs and the ducts through
which the excretions of the body pass, such as the urethra (the small canal
through which the urine passes from the bladder outward) and the colon,
including the anus. The bladder, the sigmoid flexure, prostate gland, pubic
bone, the red coloring matter of the blood, and the nasal bones are also
under the rule of Scorpio. People born under this sign make good healers,
surgeons, doctors, and nurses. But there is often a cruel and tyrannical
streak in the Scorpio, and the desire nature is strong, sometimes sensual.
Low desires often bring excesses, which may cause the following diseases,
expressing themselves according to the planets and the afflicting aspects:
syphilis, hernia, scurvy, fistula, piles, inflammation and falling of the
womb, uterine troubles, stricture of the prostrate gland, and nasal catarrh.
Dynamic and always hilarious, keep your teeth sparkling and
your mind alert by drinking peppermint teas and water. The Sagittarian is
usually the most gentle and easily cured of all patients, for with his frank
and kindly nature he is most trusting and ever ready to follow all the
instructions of the healer; but he will also respond to every negative
suggestion. The healer may have given constructive advice and left the
patient feeling encouraged, but should one of his many friends (for the
Sagittarian is usually very popular and good mixer and therefore attracts
many friends to him) suggest sickness or tell him that he is looking bad or
give him some other remedy to follow he is very apt to accept the
suggestion. The result is that he often retards his recovery. Therefore it
is necessary for the Sagittarian patient to be placed under the care of
someone who will protect him from adverse suggestions. Sagittarius rules the
region of the body directly surrounding the hips, the sacral region of the
spine, the coccygeal vertebrae, the femur, the ileum, the iliac arteries,
the sciatic nerves, and the ischium. The Sagittarian diseases are locomotor
ataxia, sciatica, rheumatism, and hip disease.
You need to eat lots of raw leaf vegetables, such as cabbage,
spinach and salad leaves, to vitalize the PH balance of your high
metabolism. The sign of Capricorn is an earthy sign and ruled by the planet
Saturn. Capricorn people do not yield to disease very readily. They are of a
wiry, persistent, and stolid nature, and will suffer considerable pain
before they will succumb to illness. But once they have given in to sickness
then they are just as slow and stubborn in holding on to it. They sometimes
become hypochondriacs, and the healer must use most diplomatic methods to
break up the crystallized condition with which these Saturnian people clothe
themselves. The most unfortunate part of it is that if a Capricorn who is in
this mental and physical state is aware that anyone is endeavoring to help
him, he will resist help and close up against the friend who thus approaches
him. Capricorn people are super-sensitive and very retiring. They often form
habits of entertaining gloom and despondency, which have a deteriorating
effect upon the health. The sign of Capricorn has rule over the knees, the
skin, the joints, and the hair. The skin of a Capricorn person is often
sallow and dry. The diseases to which Capricorn is subject are eczema,
syphilis, leprosy; also dislocation of the bones.
Your body loves unusual, exotic foods such as mangos and star
fruit, your skin glows and your body radiates sensuality when you
eat them. The fixed and airy sign of Aquarius is under the rule of
two planets, the melancholy, fearful, and overanxious Saturn, which
is ordinarily termed the planet of obstruction, and the impulsive,
heedless, emotional, and hysterical Uranus. While Aquarius is a
fixed sign which endows the native with a strong will, still when
the Aquarian is afflicted by adverse aspects between certain
planets, especially Saturn or Uranus when they are strongly placed
in the horoscope, he is prone to develop extreme gloom, pessimism,
and sensitiveness, or he is rash and responds to the emotional
Uranus. These varying moods frequently result in ill health, which
too often takes the form of nervousness. Aquarius being a mental and
airy sign, its natives are wiry and ambitious, and are prone to
overdo. They can never measure their strength until the body is
strained to its very limit, therefore when they do give up they are
usually in a critical state; but they will give the healer every
opportunity to help them, for they are ever ready to cooperate.
Physiologically the sign of Aquarius rules the lower limbs and
ankles. The diseases with which the Aquarian may be afflicted are
varicose veins, swelling of the legs, and nervous diseases of
various kinds. One indication that the Aquarian has when the nerves
begin to get weak is extreme sensitiveness of the skin. There is a
crawling sensation felt all over the body, as if little insects were
crawling on the skin.
You have sensitive hands and lips, so drink vegetable juices or
eat exotic fruits to stimulate your smooth skin. Pisces is a watery
and common sign, and the people born under it are of a lymphatic and
negative nature very fond of luxuries, which too often lead them to
seek a life of ease; in later life they are prone to take on an
excess of soft, flabby flesh, which leads to ill health. The Pisces
people respond very readily to suggestions, whether they are good or
evil, and they will also respond just as quickly to the influence of
the healer. Do not allow anyone who is of a too sympathetic nature
to visit the Piscean while he is ill. Of the over-sympathetic type
there are too many in the world today, who think it a social duty to
call upon every sick friends and encourage the ailing one to talk
about his disease, and then extend to him, oh, so much sympathy! The
Piscean person will enjoy the visit of the sympathizer, but when the
latter has gone, he usually has a relapse and must quickly send for
the doctor or healer. He should be placed in a very cheerful room,
with a cheerful attendant, and a sign on the door, "No sympathetic
visitors allowed." The Piscean is prone to drift into the habit of
drink and the use of narcotics, especially if we find an affliction
of the moon and Neptune in the horoscope. Pisces rules the feet, the
toes, and the fibrin of the blood. On account of their fondness for
good food and an easy life. Piscean people are subject to gout and
the swelling of the feet.
