Moon Conjunct Ascendant in Medical Astrology
or Moon in 1st House
You are a sensitive and highly aware individual. This sensitivity applies to certain foods, chemicals and/or drugs and it is important that you find a way to protect yourself from taking on the psychic content of others, which can actually make you unwell. Expressing your feelings is important for you and doing so will help you maintain optimum health. On the other hand, bottling up your emotions will likely make you sick. If you can’t get things off your chest directly, then try writing them down, you will soon feel better. You might be prone to psychosomatic illnesses, which are more likely when you are feeling emotionally out of sorts and cannot pinpoint the exact reason for any feelings of unease. Wearing moonstone can help to balance your hormonal levels.
Your intuition and imagination are highly developed, so it is important you heed your instincts, especially during times of stress. Rest when you feel the need to. From time to time you may need to withdraw from the world in order to recuperate. You may find that you are a gifted healer and might be particularly helpful with children, or in healing those with mood disorders or psychological problems.
You may reach for food when you feel upset, in an attempt to fill yourself up emotionally. As a result you can be prone to weight-gain caused by oedema, or simply eating too much. Try to eat sensibly. Include fresh fruit and vegetables every day. Drink plenty of water and don’t eat too much salt. Apple cider vinegar is a good source of potassium and can greatly assist when there is too much sodium in your system. It is also an appetite suppressant. Ensure you get enough B-group vitamins, which will assist your physical system to process emotional and psychic content.
