Another positive health signal. Saturn rules the spine, skeleton, knees and teeth. So these parts of the body need special attention for the maintenance of optimal health. Nothing wrong with them per se, but if health problems were to occur, they would probably start there. These body parts can be strengthened through regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath, through foot or hand reflexology, kinesiology, massage, acupressure and acupuncture. Athletes or those involved in strenuous exercise should give plenty of support to their knees (and ankles too). Saturn, your Health Planet, rules your health from the Sign of Gemini this year.
Thus the arms, shoulders and nervous system should be strengthened as well. Saturn in Gemini suggests that thought and speech play an unusual role in health this year. It suggests a need for less idle thought and speech. We are not only talking about negative thoughts or negative speech – these should be avoided like the plague – but even idle, useless thoughts and speech should be avoided. These faculties are great powers and should be turned off when not in constructive and conscious use. Many people don’t get the healing they should get merely because they waste their energies on idle thought and speech. Many athletes don’t perform to their optimum because of this too. Energy, like money, should be invested for maximum return.
The Health Planet in the Sign of Gemini also suggests that positive thoughts and speech will have an unusual positive impact on health. Say nice things about your body. Think nice thoughts about it. Always praise it. Watch how it responds to you. Saturn is opposed by Pluto all year. This shows many things. Moods and emotions (Pluto rules your 4th House) have an unusual impact on health. This is so for everyone to some degree, but here it is dramatic. A merry heart is good medicine this year.
This aspect also shows a concern with the health of family members, and that your feelings of health could be linked to their health. Perhaps you empathize too much with a family member who is not well. Though this empathy is understandable, you can’t let yourself also get ill. Then there are two ill people to deal with instead of just one. Your feelings of health and joy will do more to help them than a misguided sympathy. Let them catch your health rather than you catching their problem.
