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
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;
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
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
