You can’t get the planets out of your system. The Zodiac Signs affect the physical character as well as the spiritual, ruling your body from top to toe. Human beings are dependent on everything in this Earthly environment - air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink, fire for warmth and other people with whom to share things. Every person also is affected by the Sun, Moon, other planets and 12 Signs of the Zodiac. Our home planet Earth is part of the complete solar system and absolutely everything on this planet is interrelated to all the other spheres. When a complete horoscope is cast, it is possible to discover in which of the various signs the Sun, Moon and planets were placed. All these factors help to determine the strong and weak points in that person’s constitution, as well as indicating the actual physical appearance which is “ moulded” by the Signs of Zodiac. Let us take a look at how each Sign of the Zodiac relates to your body. ARIES : Aries is the first sign and corresponds to the head, certainly one of the most important parts of your body because it contains the brain, the centre of intelligence, and the organs of hearing, seeing, smelling and tasting. When Venus is in Aries at the time of birth, it adds a certain softness to the features and expression and often it can indicate that the person happens to be very good looking. Mars is more masculine than feminine in nature, so when this planet is in Aries it usually makes the features harder, sharper and more rugged. Jupiter is the planet of largesse and happiness, so when in Aries it indicates a fairly large, well-developed head and an expression which is happy and smiling. When Saturn is in Aries the bones of the face usually are quite prominent. TAURUS : Taurus is the second sign and rules the neck and throat. The throat is intimately connected with the voice and, in the case of many taureans, there is something quite distinctive about the way in which they sing or speak. Most of the above characteristics are noticeable in people who were born at the particular hour when Taurus was on the ascendant, regardless of the date of birth. GEMINI : Gemini is the third sign and has a direct link with the hands, arms, lungs and respiratory system. Many fine pianists and writers were born in this sign. There is one inner self in each Gemini personality so many of them talk to themselves when alone. A strong emphasis on Gemini tends to cause bronchial and other respiratory problems. Saturn in Gemini belongs to people with “problem hands”. Mars in Gemini will give strong hard-working hands which will be subject to scratches, cuts or burns. Venus in Gemini is the hallmark of people with beautiful, elegant hands which often will be adorned with jewellery to complement them. CANCER : Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac and corresponds to the stomach, digestive system and breasts. As ruled by moon, cancerans are quite imaginative and sentimental. They are more active at night and prefer cold things. Many of them are water loving and love to have fluids as much as possible. Cancerians being too sensitive never forget old things. Like waxing and waning of moon they too have their own mood swings. Leo : Leo is the fifth Sign of the Zodiac. Its role is extremely important because it rules the heart and upper part of the spine. The Sun is the ruler of Leo and without this golden orb there would be no life on Earth or, for that matter, on any of the other planets. Mars is the hallmark of strength and fast tempo, so when this planet is in Leo at the time of birth it may indicate a strong heart but one which beats a little faster than usual. VIRGO : Virgo is the sixth Sign of the Zodiac and is related to the intestinal tract. Including the large and small intestines, spleen, duodenum, pancreas and bowel. Mercury is ruler of Virgo and, since this planet is also connected with the functions of the nervous system, any prolonged periods of serious worry and anxiety will have an adverse effect on these virgo-ruled parts of the body. There are a number of cases of severe chronic constipation when both the Moon and Saturn were aligned in Virgo at the time of birth. LIBRA : Libra is the seventh Sign of the Zodiac and is related to the kidneys, lumbar vertebrae and lower part of the back. Venus, the planet of beauty, symmetry and balance, is the planetary ruler of the sign. Pains in the lower back are often the result of incorrect posture when the natural balance of weight distribution is disturbed. SCORPIO : Scorpio is the eighth Sign of the Zodiac and corresponds to the sexual and reproductive organs, bladder, anus and processes of elimination. When there are any serious planetary afflictions to Scorpio, the person may contract on of the venereal diseases. SAGITTARIUS : Sagittarius is the ninth Sign of the Zodiac and corresponds to the hips, buttocks, thighs, sciatic nerve and liver. There is also the strong possibility of sciatica or liver trouble occurring but to what degree depends on how the planets are placed in relation to this sign and to its ruler, Jupiter. CAPRICORN : Capricorn is the 10th Sign of the Zodiac and rules the knees as well as the whole skeletal system and the skin. Saturn is the ruler of this sign and people lucky enough to be born when Venus was favorably placed in relation to Saturn usually have beautiful skin. However, if Saturn or Capricorn is seriously afflicted by other planetary factors, there can be prolonged periods of skin troubles. The knee joint and kneecap can be painful or subject to injury when there are adverse star pattern at birth which involve Capricorn or Saturn. AQUARIUS : Aquarius is the 11th Sign of the Zodiac and externally it rules the calves and ankles. Many of Aquarians are good runners. People who were born at the hour when Aquarius was on the ascendant and, regardless of the month of birth many have suffered from such things as sprained, sore, swollen, weak or slightly-deformed ankles. PISCES : Pisces is the 12th Sign of the Zodiac and corresponds externally to feet and toes while internally It rules the glandular and lymphatic systems. Pisceans are very fond of buying footwear and there may be difficulty in finding shoes which will fit you comfortably, especially if you have a high instep, fallen arches or flat feet. Many of the Pisceans are excellent dancers.
