Using Astrology to Master Flu Season

Yes, it's that time of year again, flu season! Everywhere you turn someone is talking about the flu, getting flu shots, and trying to stay healthy! Let's approach this issue astrologically! Virgo is the sign that rules health and wellness, and if you desire to make it through this flu season unscathed, you've got to call on your inner Virgo. Virgo also rules the sixth house, which governs how you plan your day. The sixth house impacts your work, your environment, and how you take care of your health.

These are things that people with their sun, moon, or ascendant in Virgo do with ease. You may also find great ease in this area if you have a planet like Mars or Jupiter in the sixth house. By the way, Jupiter is in Virgo until late August of 2016, which means that health and order will be the focus for many of us this year. And with flu season upon us, there's no better time to start attending to your health. Here are some tips for your inner Virgo!

  1. Boost Your Immune System. The first thing any health conscious Virgo would do is purchase the necessary support to boost her immune system and those of her children. Virgos know that what they eat and put on their bodies will impact everything from how they think to how they feel. The first thing Virgos would do for flu season is add extra vitamin C to their lives, drink more water, and consider other home remedies like using essential oils, such as oregano oil, lavender oil, and tea tree oil. These oils kill bacteria and work similarly to antibiotic soaps and sanitary cleaners without killing all the good bacteria needed to support a healthy immune system.

2. Create a Plan and Prepare. Every health conscious Virgo creates plans, writes list, and organizes her desires for the best outcomes. During a nasty flu season, you can be sure a Virgo has created a calendar that includes waking up early to exercise, cleaning her house, and preparing healthy meals. She'll also be sure to talk with her family about making smart health choices, like frequent hand washing and removing shoes before entering the house.

3. Do Your Homework This is an area in which you should follow Virgo's lead. Like a Virgo would, experiment on yourself and find out from trial and error what works and what does not. Do your research, and you will see it's highly unlikely you'll get sick while everyone else falls prey to seasonal illnesses. If you don't have the time or resources to prepare yourself and your family, go ahead and get flu shots, but not without researching the ingredients within the specific vaccination, its success rate, and the possible negative reactions.

This flu season get your Virgo on! Create a plan for health, boost your immune system with fruits, veggies, and trustworthy vitamin supplements. Don't rely on guesswork, but do your homework so you know whether the flu vaccine is right for you and you family. And of course, look good doing it. Virgos always look fabulous and healthy, because they are.
