Best Workout for Your Zodiac Sign

By Natalie Josef for DivineCaroline

Everyone knows that your astrological sign can give you insight into how you tick and how you love, but few are aware of another way your astrological sign influences you. Each sign in the zodiac rules certain body parts, which in turn affects your health and how you should exercise. Ever wondered why you are always injuring your knee or why swimming feels so natural to you? It may be your sign.

When a sign “rules” certain parts of the body, you actually want to avoid activities that could potentially harm that body part. For example, Leo rules the heart, so Leos are prone to heart attacks. Therefore, Leos should engage in workouts that benefit circulation and be careful not to overdo it. For those who cannot get enough about astrology, there is a whole field devoted to the medical side of it, but this information is a good start to figuring out how to exercise according to your sign.

Aries: head, brain, eyes, face, and muscles
Working out comes naturally to you since it boosts your mood and reduces stress. You love to win and gravitate toward sports that have direct competition, but you should avoid anything that would stir anger as this leads to high blood pressure and potential headaches. You seem to enjoy bursts of intensity and sweating. But watch what you are doing—your carelessness can lead to bumps and bruises, or even head injuries. Activities you should look into are tennis, motor sports, football, endurance cycling, weight lifting, and fencing. Don’t overdo it and don’t expect immediate results.

Taurus: neck, throat, thyroid gland, vocal chords, and tonsils
Taureans love comfort—and food—so exercise can seem a chore. But you are prone to weight gain as you get older, so you need to participate in regular activity. Simple things like stretching and doing strengthening exercises will work, and make sure to add something like dancing. Avoid super-competitive sports. Activities that might tickle your fancy are light jogging, tennis, windsurfing, cross-country skiing, and belly dancing. Nature will motivate you, so walk or bike in good scenery. Listening to music will also add some enjoyment to exercise. Even gardening or walking the dog will help. Since you love being at home, purchasing home workout equipment is actually a very good idea.

Oh good grief , I'm capricorn and I do not do jogging or running because frankly it's the one thing that really sets my asthma off ! (I do do yoga, swimming and martial arts though so I'm guessing the stretching bit is right)

I like to be active and moving, but hate to run. If I could get past that mental block, I know I'd be doing better. Unfortunately for my sign, there really wasn't too much actual advice, like some of the others. I guess it depends on your own dedication...
