Health & Astrology — Virgo

Virgo is the 6th sign in astrology, ruled by the winged messenger Mercury, and is classified as mutable (changeable) earth. This sign is usually very interested in health and wellness issues.

Virgoans, or people with this sign emphasised in their chart, are often worriers, obsessed with the minutest details of their life and usually their own bodies. For this reason, their health can be a great cause for concern, whether there is actually anything genuinely concerning or not.

The part of the body associated with Virgo are the intestines, where food is processed and dealt with systematically — a very Virgoan trait. Traditionally Virgo is said to be susceptible to intestinal problems, perhaps as a result of too much worry and anxiety. Such conditions can lead to complications such as gout later on in life.

Yoga for better Virgoan health?

Most especially, despite Virgo’s great strength in dealing with life’s minutiae, he or she needs to take time off and relax, to take a look at the bigger picture. The strong Virgo is usually very interested in diet and being active, so practices like yoga can be very beneficial and will also help to the person to calm down.
