Health and Astrology Series: Scorpio

Running at Rancho La PuertaThis is a blog series where we feature a different astrology sign every month along with specific health recommendations for that particular sign.  This month is dedicated to the Scorpios of the Zodiac, October 23-November 22.   

When Scorpios get off the Ranch bus it is as if they are silently being shot out of cannons. More than any other sign of the zodiac, Scorpios are in blast off mode. Always remember, however, that this intense energy is stealthy and not always obvious. They are the ones most likely to stay up all night filling up their schedules until they get a bit stressed from trying to do too much in too little time. Scorpios will race from Montana gym to Pinetree making sure they get a great workout.  They go for the burn!

However, by mid-week who do you think is soaking in the Jacuzzi and doing nothing but yoga and Feldenkrais? Yes, it is the Scorpios who will swing from one extreme to another. They have two speeds: full tilt and crash. They love strenuous sports and their bodies are usually very strong. Since they tend to have addictive personalities, the best thing for a Scorpio’s health is to get hooked on something that is good for them.

Since The Ranch is all about what is good in the world, Ranch life is paradise for them. Scorpios are the sexiest sign in the zodiac and they will love sex therapist Dr. Beverly Whipple’s lectures if she happens to be at The Ranch. Being somewhat introverted and mysterious, they do well in classes that let them blend into the background. They will dress up for the African dance class, but don’t put them in the front row. They will dance to break a sweat and have fun, but they are not at all interested in being in the spotlight.

Of all the signs of the zodiac, Scorpios have the most amazing regenerative powers.  Nobody can handle extremes better than Scorpios. The healthiest thing they can do is find balance between these extremes. The Ranch is the perfect environment for Scorpios to connect with their feelings and spend time with their loved ones.

Stay tuned for Sagittarius next month and check out the other signs we’ve written about so far this year below:
