Ascendant in Capricorn in Medical Astrology
You are capable of hard work and slow and steady purposeful release of energy, but you can lack enthusiasm at times and be prone to depression, colds and chills, and general feelings of sadness for no particular reason.
You take your responsibilities seriously. With Capricorn rising, you have staying power and you will probably enjoy a long life. Endeavour to schedule time for fun and relaxation as well as your obligations; you will be healthier and happier if you do.
It may be helpful for you to get more sunshine, especially in winter months, because it is important you have enough Vitamin D to assist with the effective functioning of calcium in your body. You may not respond well to living in cold climates and should try to include some spicy and blood stimulating foods in your diet. Get plenty of minerals and vitamins such as iron and Vitamin C. Try to eat more hot food, such as nutrition-rich soups, especially in winter.
With Capricorn rising you can suffer from arthritis, colds and flu, obesity, slow metabolism, knee problems and teeth problems, psoriasis and other skin problems, rheumatism and gout.
Capricorn is a sign that has strong resistance to disease, but once sick you can also take some time to recover. Worry, fear and overwork can bring health problems, so you should be careful to relieve stress with moderate and regular exercise. Aches and pains can be relieved by regular chiropractic care, massage or foot reflexology.
Aromatherapy oils and herbs that can aid conditions common to those with Capricorn rising include: Cedarwood, Peppermint, Basil, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang.
