Aries Astrology and Health With Leslie McGuirk

Aries Health and AstrologyAstrology and Health Series With Leslie McGuirk

Aries, the Ram, is the first sign of the Zodiac, and is often known for being at the front of the line, and the first to sign up for anything involving raw physical energy. All of the hard core workout classes at The Ranch are perfect for Rams. Try Cardio Muscle Blast, Sculpt, TRX, Circuit Training, and Trail Running.

Any martial arts practices are wonderful for Aries. The word “martial” is associated with Mars, the ruling fire planet for Aries. Pumping iron is a natural fit as well, since iron is the metal for Aries. All of these intense methods of keeping fit help Aries burn off excess energy. Aries usually have a lot of adrenaline and can burn fuel rather efficiently; many have fast-acting metabolisms!

Rams are the type of people who were likely to exclaim, “Look Mom, no hands!” as children. Always willing to take risks, they have to be careful of going too fast. These folks should wear a helmet when biking, especially since Aries rules the head and skull.

Nothing drives an Aries more insane than boredom. They thrive on living with a lot of gusto and love to live in the moment. Their biggest health risk is in doing too much and not knowing when to stop.  As determined fighters, Rams need to balance their headstrong natures with being grounded on the earth. Reflexology is one of the best ways for an Aries to relax their overactive bodies and minds as well as “earthing,” or spending time in nature. Balance is key!

Wise Words #22

When I was younger I constantly looked outside of myself for validation of what I should do with my life.  I didn’t know what my purpose was, and because of that I was heavily influenced by others. I never looked within myself to discover what it was that … Continue reading
