ASTROLOGY AND HEALTH - GEMINI
ZODIAC SIGN OF THE MONTH - GEMINI
Each sign of the zodiac rules a specific part of the human body and has requirements distinct from all other zodiacal signs.
The supreme priority of the human body is to keep itself alive and healthy. To this end billions of cells engage in some type of activity that is part of this function, controlled by two communication systems, one of which is the nervous system...that system which transmits information rapidly by nerve impulses conducted from one body area to another. The major components of the nervous system are the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Gemini and Mercury have rulership over the nervous system.
In the human body Gemini rules the bronchial tubes and lungs, the shoulders, arms, hands, and fingers. With the exception of bone, every tissue and organ of the body contains fibrin. The Gemini tissue (cell) salt - Kali muriaticum (Potassium chloride) - is essential for the formation of fibrin.
A foundation of fibers forms the basis upon which our garment of flesh is built...an infinitely fine network all branching off from one another forming the framework upon which the tissues are constructed that includes the skin, glands and nerves.
Kali mur is concerned with cleansing and purifying the blood; it is frequently needed in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, particularly those affecting respiration - coughs, colds, sore throats, tonsillitis, bronchitis, etc.. A deficiency of Kali mur causes fibrin to become non-functional and to be thrown off in the form of thick, white discharges, giving rise to catarrhs and similar symptoms affecting the skin and mucous membranes. Signs of potassium deficiency include muscle weakness, confusion, irritability and heart disease. Fluid loss from diarrhea, vomiting or excessive exercise that causes sweating can also lead to deficiency.
People who were born with the Sun or Moon in Gemini or who have Gemini on the Ascendant, and when planets in Gemini or the Ascendant are under progressed or transiting afflictions can avoid problems associated with this Gemini cell salt and enjoy excellent health by supplying their bodies with Kali mur.
FOOD CONTAINING POTASSIUM CHLORIDE
Fruits and vegetables such as seaweed, rye, tomatoes, olives, lettuce and celery. Sprinkle kelp powder (a seaweed) into soups, omelets, stews, etc., or stuff capsules with kelp and take one daily to help your muscles and nerves function properly, keep your electrolytes in balance and help regulate your blood pressure.
HERBS THAT RESONATE WITH GEMINI
Lavender, madder, tansy, vervain, woodbine, yarrow, meadow-sweet, privet, bugleweed, cranesbill, pleusiry root, licorice and dog-grass. Note: Do not take licorice if you have high blood pressure.
AROMATHERAPY FOR GEMINI: LAVENDER
Aromatherapy is a healing method which uses the essential oils obtained from aromatic plants and trees for therapeutic purposes. Useful in treating the skin for burns, bruises, muscle spasms, and acne, lavender is a splendid sedative and pain-killing essence; it is antiseptic, antiviral and analgesic. I use lavender both to promote health and for mental tranquility. Add water and about 14 drops of lavender to a spray bottle and enjoy the relaxation it lends when you spray it around a room; add a few drops to your laundry's rinse water for wonderfully smelling linens; mix 6 to 10 drops in a 1/2 ounce dropper bottle filled with a carrier oil (a good quality olive oil will do) and use directly on the skin to assist in healing; add a few drops to a hand or body cream, mix well, and notice the difference.
MINERALS THAT RESONATE WITH GEMINI
The talismanic gem Beryl (Alexandrite, Emerald, Aquamarine) and such stones as are striped.
Emerald resonates to the Fourth Chakra - the
. The symbol of harmony, sympathy, creativity and health, green reflects nature in general, as do all green stones...restoring tired nerves and giving new energy. Green is a great aid to any heart problem or blood pressure disorder because of its strong influence on the heart chakra and the circulation of its blood supply. Wear emerald near the heart...a ring, perhaps, on a long chain so that it reaches your heart chakra. Heart Center
