Regardless of your star sign, everyone possesses a piece each zodiac within them, and not just spiritually, but on a physical level too. As a matter of fact, every area of the body is governed by a particular zodiac energy.
Back in the day, physicians studied dreams and the planets in order to determine a patient’s treatment. And, although it’s been long since the method is out of practice, there is still some value in understanding the ways astrology can help heal you.
According to astrology, each zodiac sign is responsible for a specific part of the body, and if it’s diseased, channeling the energy of that sign can be helpful.
Body part: Aries governs the head, hair and face.
Energy: Aries’ energy is about leadership, ambition and self-determination. It also rules over emotions of anger, confidence and courage.
Imbalances: When Aries’ energy is out of balance, it can manifest in the form of migraines, headaches, low self-esteem, a runny nose and sinus problem. It might also appear in the form of skin problems, such as acne, eczema, rashes and hair loss.
Healing: The sign of the Aries is all about standing up for yourself and living the life you want. If you’ve been hiding in the background, or if you’ve listened to your ego far too much, it might be time to balance it all out. It might also mean that you need to ease up on the overthinking, slow down your tempo or pay attention to the world around you.
