Ascendant in Leo in Medical Astrology
You are probably an energetic person and possess a strong willpower. You generally have a powerful constitution, but can at times overlook physical matters, or dismiss them as unimportant. You can sometimes over-estimate your physical capabilities.
You tend to retain too much heat in the body and so spicy food should be eaten in moderation and alcohol intake limited. Possible health problems can include hypertension and cardiac problems, metabolic problems, back problems, blood clots, heart attacks, palpitations or irregular heart beat, fevers, rheumatism, spine injuries and eye problems. These are rare, but more likely to happen when you place your body under too much stress, or when you are feeling over-confident about your physical prowess.
You tend to overdo things at times and soldier on when you are not well. You do not get sick often and tend to think that you can overcome health concerns by will power alone. You might try to avoid visiting the doctor. Certainly one’s attitude is important in overcoming illness, but at times you think that you can just keep going, when you need to rest.
The reverse is also sometimes true. On occasion you can be lazy. You prefer to delegate responsibilities while taking the role of overseer, or supervisor. This approach does not work when it comes to physical exercise. As the saying goes, “No pain, no gain”.
Seek out professional health advice when you are feeling unwell and learn to follow their advice. You might not want to listen, but getting a variety of opinions will help you realise that there is virtue in their knowledge. This may be a valuable lesson.
Herbs and aromatherapy oils that can assist with circulation problems include Bergamot, Cedarwood, Lavender, Rosemary, and Sandalwood. Using Bergamot, Marjoram and Orange can assist hypertension.
