ARIES (21st Mar-19th April)
The month of Aries - as with people born as the Sun moves through the house of Aries - tends to be endowed with greater energy, enthusiasm, strength, and stamina. However, as a by-product of the upswing in energy and increased focus on ‘goals’, we can be more prone to stress, impatience, impulsiveness, and fluctuating moods and temperament.
This month it may be wise to lay off extra or excessive coffees, sugar, salt, and alcohol, as with the combination of increased energy you may hit some burnout! Aries ruler Mars tends to be ‘combustible’.
Pay particular care and attention to the head, stomach, kidneys and lymphatics this month eg. digestion, colds, fever, eyesight, skin rashes, and depression from coming down off excesses and bursting your boiler! With Aries being a focused fire sign, it’s a month to make the most of inspirational energy, but also to pace yourself…and periodically stop, drop, and breathe.
TAURUS (20th April-20th May)
The sun moving through the sign of Taurus brings a steady, robust and resilient energy with it. However, as a by-product of the Taurean love of overindulgence, particularly around eating and relaxing, the month of Taurus may be a time to tackle any de-motivation that has crept in around exercise, as well as zoning in on any weight issues. It’s only going to get tougher through the dark, cold months of winter, so establish some renewed discipline now.
As Taurus rules the throat area of the body, pay particular care and attention to the throat, neck, tonsils, thyroid, parathyroid…and recovery from rich foods and beverages! Taurus can be stubborn, so be prepared with the inner conflict faced with replacing the relaxation in front of the television for an hour at the gym! And if you are looking for more healthy indulgence, it may be timely for a massage or spa treatment.
GEMINI (21st May-20th June)
Whilst it may be winter in the southern hemisphere, as the sun traverses the mutable, changeable, Air sign of Gemini, party, play and an overcommitment to too many things may arise as a theme this month. Those tricky twins love a good time…or at least, one of them does!
Being stretched in multiple directions can result in enhanced stress, anxiety, irritability and mood swings.
Gemini governs the areas of speech, smell and lungs. But it also rules the arms, shoulders, hands, fingers and (critically) the nervous system. Health may be impacted this month by confinement, overactivity and overthinking. Emotional breakdowns may appear – but remember, these can also be emotional breakthroughs! Be kind to yourself, and don’t bite off more than you can chew this month.
