Most people do not realize that astrology was the way medicine was practiced into the 17th century, like oriental medicine, which is much more widely accepted. Medical astrology dates back to 400 B.C. and the time of Hippocrates, who said, “He who does not understand astrology is not a doctor but a fool.” If there is one sign of the Zodiac that is obsessed with health and weight it is Libra. How ironic that their Zodiac symbol is the scales? And how facinating that many of the most famous celebrities who sell diet plans or tools to lose weight are mostly Libras? Think of Weight Watchers founder Jean Nidetch; former Weight Watchers spokesperson Sarah Ferguson; author and Thigh Master pitchwoman, Suzanne Somers; and Dr. Atkins of the famous high protein Atkins diet. Libras are always weighing in, usually with their opinions, which are often well thought out. They are the most mental of the air signs. There is a New Moon in Libra on September 24th, which coincides with the Fall Equinox. A great time for Libras to set some health resolutions for the upcoming winter months. PS To everyone….. Don’t forget that Mercury goes Retrograde on October 4th!
