Ascendant in Virgo in Medical Astrology
You tend to be a perfectionist. You are highly knowledgeable about health matters and perhaps have a deep interest in healing. Most likely you are aware of the need to eat well and exercise regularly. But at times you can be too intent on these matters, perhaps you desire to have a perfect body, or are overly focussed on germs, cleanliness or illness, you may also be prone to hypochondria. It is important for you to have an ordered environment and you are very good at being disciplined with diet and exercise. At times you can take things too far. This can result in eating disorders and poor self-image. Your tendency to worry can lead to stress related problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders, digestive problems, food allergies, constipation, diarrhoea, hay fever, hypoglycaemia or diabetes, and a range of other conditions.
Let go of trying to be perfect and try to change your scenery once in a while. You may worry unnecessarily about your health. What underpins this concern is perhaps a deep-seated fear and dislike for being dependent on anyone. Self-sufficiency is a noble ideal, but again, you can sometimes take this to extremes. Worry and stress can produce its own symptoms. Learning to relax is important for you. Yoga or meditation may be helpful. Don’t take things too far in your quest for physical perfection. Perfection doesn’t mean working yourself into the ground.
You are happy in your own company most of the time and can get stressed by the imperfections you encounter in others, or in the world around you. Learning to relax and worrying less will make you happier and healthier.
Aromatherapy oils useful for relaxation and to reduce anxiety and tension include: Lavender, Lemongrass, Cedarwood, Camomile and Basil. Herbs and oils to heal digestive upsets, to which you are sometimes prone, include Fennel and Peppermint. For colds, flu and sinus complaints try Eucalyptus, Tea Tree or Peppermint chest rubs and inhalation.
