Aquarius Health

Ruling Planet: Mars
Element: Fire
Symbol: The Ram
Associated body areas: Head



Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac; the sign of the Pioneer; the sign of action. You approach life at a gallop, full of passion, enthusiasm and intensity, combining the energy and determination of your ruler, Mars, with the speed, brilliance and spontaneity of the element of Fire.

Aries really does rush in where angels fear to tread. So it is not surprising that you have a tendency, at times, to trip up, slip up, sprain your ankles, burn your fingers, fall off ladders, bang your head…… ah, yes, the head. That is the area of the body linked to Aries which is why you are more prone than most to suffer headaches, migraine, lost teeth, dental decay and ailments affecting the mouth, eyes and ears. Your head may even lead when you walk, your body following obediently behind.

Of course, your approach to health mirrors your approach to life in general. You have no time to worry about such boring matters being far too busy starting new projects, hatching grand plans and great ideas. Let other people etch in the fine detail and pour over the small print. You are the creative genius who dreams up one scheme and then moves quickly on to the next.

The health dangers are obvious. With all that impatient energy pushing you ever onwards and upwards, you have a tendency to overdo it and become over-tired, over-stressed and overwrought. Your jaw tenses up, your head aches, your eyes feel strained. Or you may flare up and become overaggressive and short-tempered indicating an urgent need to slow down and take life at a less frenetic pace.

However, too little activity can be as detrimental to the Aries wellbeing as too much. Without sufficient stimulation you can become apathetic, sluggish and bored. You need to find a comfortable balance to your life, to listen to what your body is trying to tell you - and to respond.

Your positive attitude and faith in your own abilities means that you operate from the basis that 'I can' rather than 'I can't'. You live in the present and for the moment. Because you believe that nothing is impossible, you frequently take on more than you can handle and then worry about all the loose ends which you have left trailing behind.

Another potential problem for individuals born under this vigorous sign is the fact that you play to win. Dynamic and courageous you may be, but you are also deeply competitive - even with yourself. Being belittled, undermined or under-valued can make you physically ill.

Ariens frequently have weak backs, the result of being taller than average and carrying, moving or doing things on impulse which, were you to take the time to consider the matter, you would realise it would be wiser to avoid.

By and large, Aries is a healthy, happy sign but you do need to learn how to balance your physical and psychological needs.
