Stress and Relaxation through the Stars

segni zodiacali - Gemelli

The third sign of the zodiac is Gemini. To experience Gemini energy, it is not just for people who have their Sun in the sign of Gemini and  were born in May or June. It is also  for people who have other planets in the sign of Gemini, their ascendent in the sign of Gemini, the nodes in the sign of Gemini, or as Gemini rules the third house, have a very concentrated third house of planets  in your Astrology chart.

Geminis are constantly on the go, when they are stressed you see the same picture, they never stop moving! When they are at work and are under the pump they can multitask so easily.  When Geminis are stressed they seem to get sick, they are prone to colds and bronchitis. They generally live on their nerves and often are in complete denial when they do get sick. When Geminis are stressed the last thing they need is  a slow acting person around them.

To reduce your stress Gemini, put your feet up, have a cup of tea and read a magazine. Stretch out on the lounge and watch your favorite movie.

Geminis enjoy going to the movies, inviting their friends over for drinks and nibbles, and going away for the weekend.

The second sign of the zodiac is Taurus. To experience Taurus energy, it is not just for people who have their sun in the sign of Taurus and  were born in April or May. It is also  for people who have other planets in the sign of Taurus, their ascendent in the sign of Taurus, the nodes in the sign of Taurus, or as Taurus rules the second house, have a very concentrated second house of planets  in your Astrology chart.

When Taurus is under stress, they become quiet and reclusive. They tend to escape to the computer or watch television. Taurus becomes stressed when they feel pressured to perform. They stress when they are not given enough time to perform their tasks properly.  They like to do things slowly and methodically without any pressure. If rushed, they feel stressed.

De-stress Taurus by having a relaxing bath and a good night sleep. Exercise is also beneficial for you, by going into the gym, or playing ball sports Taurus seem to enjoy. Taurus is a tactile sign  so a manicure, pedicure, or massage is very relaxing. Taurus would also relax by staying at home lying upon the lounge watching a good movie. Taurus’s energy also finds it very therapeutic being in the garden.

Taurus finds comfort in eating good food and drinking exquisite wine. They love peace and quiet and enjoy the arts.

 

Stress and Relaxation through the stars

segni zodiacali- ariete

We will start with the first sign of the zodiac,  Aries. To experience Aries energy, it is not just for people who have their sun in Aries and  were born in March and April. It is also  for people who have other planets in the sign of Aries, their ascendent in the sign of Aries, the nodes in the sign of Aries, or as Aries rules the first house, have a very concentrated first house of planets  in your Astrology chart.

When Aries energy is stressed there is an immediate frustration which can cause aggression. An explosion of a quick temper, then the energy  settles very  quickly. You will notice that those who are affected by this energy become irritable and moody when they can’t accomplish their tasks. The Aries energy works very well under pressure, but in doing so, they really push their bodies, and  soon become burnt out and stressed.

To de- stress Aries and feel more relaxed you need to exercise. Walking, bike riding, hiking, running, going to the gym, any exercise that moves the body is beneficial!

Aries energy is very adventurous, courageous and enthusiastic. Other activities Aries love to enjoy are abseiling, flying planes, skiing and driving fast cars.

 

Stress

Diagram of stress consequences

A lot of us are leading busy stressful lives. We become stressed by conditions in our environment that are imposed upon us. Working to the demands of others, sticking to deadlines and keeping up with both our working and family relationships are stress factors. Life has its frustrations and hassles and these generate stress. Our bodies can only tolerate so much stress and then our health begins to suffer. Relaxation and balance are the keys to de-stress.

In my following blogs we will go through the Zodiac and list some of the ways the star signs can guide you to relax .

 

Jupiter In Leo

Segni zodiacali - Leone

Jupiter moved into the sign of Leo in July 2014 and it will be there until 11th August 2015. This energy moves actively, precisely and lovingly without us even remembering the previous energy from Jupiter in Cancer.

Slowly our relationships begin to change. We seem to feel more tolerant and loving to our existing loved ones, where once before we could write a list of their annoying habits. We connect to our very own heart center and want to love and to be more loved. Our relationships with our partners, friends and family have an opportunity, with Jupiter in Leo, to be more affectionate, generous and joyful.

For people without partners this is an opportunity to enter a relationship where you feel more appreciated, admired and loved. For people who are having difficulties in their relationships, under this transit there is an opportunity to let go of anything or anyone who does not respect, love or value you. This is a time when we really think about what we really want and desire in a relationship. It is a time of learning about ourselves. We can ask, ‘How do we love ourselves?’

Jupiter in Leo provides an opportunity to grow and succeed through creative self -expression. It is a time when some will have an opportunity to be more recognised through their hobbies and creative abilities. Others will rise to positions of leadership.

Jupiter in Leo allows us to be more mindful of having fun. To play and love, recreation, entertainment and  romance may be on top of our lists.

With our children, we may be  more focused on them at this time. Our children may also be dealing with new issues such as parenthood, career changes, emotional issues and issues with their siblings.

On the flip side Jupiter in Leo can bring about extravagance. It may bring about a lot of spending. And one can be  totally focused on self image.
