Ascendant in Aquarius in Medical Astrology
Your energy levels may fluctuate a great deal and you can be prone to mood swings, including bouts of depression. At times you can be overly anxious and so relaxation techniques such as meditation, or Tai Chi can help you relax. Conditions that can manifest with an Aquarius Ascendant include: blood disorders, oedema, heart disease, varicose veins, rheumatism, nervous disorders, depression, or fluid retention that leads to swelling of the ankles.
At the core of these problems can be an underlying apprehension, or fearful approach to living. You may try to fit into situations where you do not really feel comfortable and in trying to be something that you are not, you subject your nervous system to a great deal of unnecessary stress. It may take you a while to get to know your true identity and find your special niche. Part of you is a maverick who needs to stand apart from the mainstream.
Sometimes you can be apprehensive about the future, and at other times too focussed on what might happen next and have trouble adjusting to the here and now.
Eventually you will learn more about yourself and be content to embrace your uniqueness. Your personal confidence will grow as you mature and you will recognise that it is okay to be yourself. You are a sensitive person and you are somewhat highly strung. As you develop confidence in yourself you will feel more comfortable interacting with others and the wider world and you will begin to feel less scattered.
Even so, an inner sense of nervousness may never quite leave you and as a result you may experience some peculiar ailments that are unusual, or rare. Try to get more in touch with your feelings and try to express yourself without fear. Find a creative outlet. Schedule regular time for relaxation and activities that ground you.
Aromatherapy oils and herbs that can assist with problems common to Aquarius rising include: Basil, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Marjoram, Orange, Cypress and Lemon.
