SIGNS OF HEALTH

Is Your Health Ruled By Your Star Sign?

Does your astrological birth sign really have an influence on your health? Is someone born under Libra more likely to suffer from heart disease than someone born under Taurus? Are Aquarians more inclined to suffer from arthritis than Scorpios?

A lot of nonsense is written about the influence of astrological signs on our lives. And so in an attempt to get at the truth I have conducted a scientific study

You may find it difficult to understand why astrological signs should have any influence on health (or, indeed, on anything else). I readily admit that I find it difficult to understand why there should be any such link.

But the results obtained in this study seem to leave no room for doubt: your date of birth, and the astrological sign under which you were born, do seem to have a significant impact on the type of diseases to which you are most likely to be susceptible.

My conclusion is simple: the astrology-health link is a significant one which we can no longer ignore. You can use the information in this report in the same way that you can use other personal health information

THE SICKEST AND HE HEALTHIEST

For the purpose of this survey I collected information about symptoms in 20 different categories:

  • anxiety and/or depression
  • bone or joint problems (such as arthritis, rheumatism)
  • heart disease/high blood pressure
  • breathing problems (such as asthma, bronchitis)
  • hair or skin problems (such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis)
  • kidney or urinary problems (such as cystitis)
  • neurological problems (such as epilepsy
  • female disorders (affecting the womb or ovaries)
  • male disorders (affecting the penis or testicles)
  • sexual problems (such as impotence, or unusually high or low libido
  • cancer
  • infectious diseases (chronic, recurrent or frequent infections)
  • blood disorders (such as anaemia or leukaemia)
  • hormone, endocrine or metabolic disorders (such as diabetes or thyroid disease
  • nutritional problems (such as obesity, anorexia, vitamin defiency)
  • liver and gall bladder disease (such as hepatitis and gall stones
  • digestive problems (such as indigestion, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome
  • breast problems
  • eye problems
  • ear, nose and throat problems


The average respondent in this survey complained of having (or having had) suffered from diseases in 4.48 of these categories.

The following list shows where each of the 12 star signs stand in relation to one another with regard to the average number of disorders complained about.

Although all 12 signs are relatively close to one another, there is absolutely no doubt from these results that Sagittarians seem to suffer from far fewer different diseases than individuals under any other star signs. Equally, there is no doubt that those born under Scorpio and Gemini seem, on average, to suffer most.

This table lists the average number of types of illnesses (out of a possible 20) suffered by individuals born under the twelve different star signs.

Do not despair if you find that your star sign is one which seems to be associated with a wide variety of types of ill health. Remember that knowing your susceptibilities can help you protect yourself and improve your health.

Less diseases than average:

1. Sagittarius 3.85
2. Virgo 4.10
3. Capricorn 4.26
4. Pisces 4.47

Average:

5. Aries 4.48
6. Libra 4.48

More diseases than average:

7. Aquarius 4.52
8. Leo 4.62
9. Taurus 4.63
10. Cancer 4.64
11. Gemini 4.78
12 Scorpio 4.96

YOUR STAR SIGN AND YOUR HEALTH: THE COMPLETE RESULTS

The figures on the following tables show the likelihood of an individual born under each star sign suffering from the condition named. For example, an individual born under the star sign of Cancer will have a 69% chance of suffering from anxiety and/or depression in his or her lifetime.

It is important to remember that these figures should not be taken as meaning that anyone has immunity to a particular type of illness. Everyone is susceptible to every disease (with obvious gender limitations

What the research does show, however, is that there are links between star signs and an extra susceptibility to some specific disorders. And this information can be useful

Please note that these figures are rather lower than the normal figures for the lifetime incidence of specific diseases. For example, the incidence of cancer is now generally regarded as one in three. In other words one in three individuals will develop cancer (though they will not necessarily die of it). The figures here are lower than this because the people taking part in this survey were, inevitably, only part of the way through their lives. Most illnesses develop in the last few decades of life.

Anxiety and /or depression.

Those born under the star signs of Cancer and Aries seem to be significantly more likely to suffer from anxiety and/or depression while those born under the star signs of Capricorn, Virgo and Aquarius seem significantly less likely than average to suffer from problems of this type.

The average risk level is 59%. This means that those born under the sign Libra have an average chance of developing anxiety or depression. Those above Libra on this list have a greater than an average chance of developing anxiety or depression. Those below Libra on this list have a lower than average chance of developing anxiety or depression.

  • Cancer 69%
  • Aries 67%
  • Leo 62%
  • Pisces 62%

  • Sagittarius 61%
  • Libra 59%
  • Taurus 57%
  • Scorpio 54%
  • Capricorn 52%
  • Virgo 52%
  • Aquarius 38%

Bone or Joint Problems

Those born under the star signs Capricorn, Libra and Taurus all seem to have a significantly enhanced risk of suffering from bone or joint problems. In contrast those born under the star signs Aries, Virgo and Cancer seem to have a lower than average risk of suffering from disorders such as arthritis and rheumatism.

The average risk level is 61%. Those above this level on this list have a greater than an average chance of developing bone or joint problems. Those below 61% on this list have a lower than average chance of developing bone or joint problems.

  • Capricorn 74%
  • Libra 74%
  • Taurus 70%
  • Leo 65%

  • Cancer 45%

Heart disease/high blood pressure

It seems from these results that individuals born under the star signs Leo, Gemini, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio may need to take particular care to protect themselves against heart and blood pressure problems. It seems that individuals least likely to suffer from problems of this type are those born under Pisces, Aries, Capricorn and Sagittarius.

The average risk level is 33%. This means that those born under the signs Taurus and Aquarius have an average chance of developing anxiety or depression. Those above Taurus and Aquarius on this list have a greater than an average chance of developing heart disease or high blood pressure or similar problems. Those below Taurus and Aquarius on this list have a lower than average chance of developing heart disease, high blood pressure or a similar problem.

Breathing problems (asthma, bronchitis etc)

Those born under the star signs Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Cancer all seem to be exposed to an unusually high risk of developing a problem of this type. On the other hand those born under Aries, Capricorn, Libra and Sagittarius seem less likely to be affected by breathing problems.

The average risk level is 27%. This means that those born under the sign Pisces have an average chance of developing asthma, bronchitis or another type of breathing problem. Those above Pisces on this list have a greater than an average chance of developing a breathing problem. Those below Pisces on this list have a lower than average chance of developing a breathing problem.

CONCLUSION

To be aware of your susceptibilities is to increase your chances of survival. If you have a family history of heart disease or diabetes then you would be foolish not to take very special care to make sure that you do not expose yourself unnecessarily to external factors which might increase your chances of suffering from that problem. If you have a family history of diabetes then you would be wise to watch your diet carefully, to avoid becoming overweight and to have regular check ups for early signs of developing diabetes.

The information produced by this research should be used in a similar way. So, for example, if your star sign shows that you are unusually susceptible to digestive problems then you should take special care to avoid that type of problem.

About this survey

This study is based on 1,643 separate pieces of information supplied by 367 respondents in the autumn of 1999. I hope that the results will encourage other researchers to continue the work begun with this paper.
