The sensual sign of Taurus rules the throat. As a sign that is connected to the five senses, the mouth allows Taurus to be able to enjoy the various flavors that are associated with food. Also, the throat rulership is associated with the ability to sing which is a special talent that many Taurus individuals have due to the influence of Venus.
The busybody energy of Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, and it is connected to the arms, hands as well as the central nervous system. Gemini also rules the lungs as represented by the air sign connection. The rulership over the arms and the hands, especially the fingers, points to Gemini’s dexterity. Likewise, the nervous system rulership is connected to the abundant energy which Gemini possesses.
Ruled by the moon, the sign of Cancer presides over the body parts that are associated with nourishment. These include the breasts as well as the stomach. The breasts supply nourishment from the mother, and the stomach is the area in which food is stored, broken down, and digested. It is important for Cancer to be diligent about protecting the breasts and making sure that they are conscious about what they eat as the stomach can be very sensitive to stress.
The fabulous Leo rules over the heart, cardiovascular system, and hair in astrology. Leo is known for being a very passionate, courageous sign that lives from its heart. Thus, this sign would do well to take care of its cardiovascular system. Likewise, the lion is known for its glorious mane, and Leo as a sign is no exception, so expect this sign to put a lot of effort into their hair.
The fastidious, humble, and discerning sign of Virgo rules over the intestines. This should come as no surprise because the intestines are the area where nutrients are absorbed from the food. Virgo is a very sensitive sign that is interested in what is pure and because of this they can be very sensitive to impurities within the environment as well as within their foods.
The lovely Libra, which rules balance and harmony and is represented by the scales symbol in astrology, rules the kidneys. The kidneys are a very important organ in the body because they help to remove excess waste and fluids from the body. Likewise, the kidneys also work to maintain a healthy balance of water, salt, and other minerals in the blood while making hormones that control high blood pressure.
The passionate sign of Scorpio governs both the sexual organs as well as the anus. The sexual organs are the most notable rulership as it is connected with Scorpio’s sexual nature. The anus is related to Scorpio’s desire to release that which is no longer necessary. Essentially, the anus is the release point for the body’s waste material.
Always on the move, it is no wonder that Sagittarius is connected to the hips and thighs and is reminiscent of the prominent legs of horses and the centaur which has Sagittarius rulership. The sciatic nerve which runs from the lower spine through the hips and buttocks into the lower legs can be an area of concern for this on-the-go sign.
The ever-climbing Capricornian goat treks up the mountainside on its journey to the top. All that climbing can really impact the knees and the bones which Capricorn rules. The skeletal system provides the structure for the body. Capricorn is a sign that is aligned with forming plans and creating and maintaining the structures that are in our lives similar to how the skeletal system provides the structure for our bodies.
The ankles are ruled by Aquarius, and they play a special role in moving us forward as they connect the bones of the lower leg to the foot bones. Just think about how difficult it is to move forward with a broken ankle! Aquarius is the progressive sign whose insight brings evolutionary leaps to mankind. Aquarius’ ruler Uranus is known for its unexpected oftentimes shocking insights that have the potential to liberate us.
Pisces rules the feet as well as the lymphatic system. As the last sign, Pisces is often considered a culmination of all the signs before it as well as itself. The feet, although positioned last on the body, do the incredible job of holding all the weight of the body. They are also often neglected and taken for granted…until they become sore or injured. The lymphatic system is our own personal sewage system which is responsible for removing excess fluids and waste from the body tissues as well as producing immunity cells which act as the first line of defense for the body.
