What your body could be trying to tell you
The Moon in Cancer
The Moon is at home in the Zodiac sign of Cancer. This sign is about embracing our feelings and sentiments and caring for others. So it’s no surprise that on days where the Moon is in cancer we might feel restless and the water adds an extra depth. Emotions that we usually guard under lock and key bubble up to the surface. The areas of the body most effected by this sign include the Lungs, liver, gall-bladder and stomach.
Bronchitis – » I do not feel comfortable with my environment and who is surrounding me, but I am afraid of expressing how I feel. I am afraid of expressing my true feelings »
Bronchial Asthma – » I feel stifled, there is not enough space for me to breath and express my true self, I feel manipulated – I will not be able to breathe freely until the situation changes ».
Heartburn – » I am afraid ».
Inflammation of the stomach and stomach ulcers – » I can not handle life, everything is changing too quickly – there’s too much going on and I do not feel I can cope »
Liver and Gall-bladder problems – « I want to complain, everyone is at fault except me. Who do you think you are talking to? No wonder I am bitter…. I’ve nothing to reproach myself for. »
Anything that we do to help this are will be doubly beneficial in prevention and with healing. Anything that puts a burden on this are has a more harmful effect and ought to be avoided. A light vegetarian diet is always best on days when the Moon is in cancer.
The Moon in Gemini
With the Moon in the Zodiac sign of Gemini the regions of the shoulders, arms and hands are influenced. With the air element activated this also includes the lungs. Gemini days are lively, lighthearted and inquisitive in their essence. There could be a curiosity to our thoughts. Bright and airy in quality, even if the sky is cloudy, communication and the desire to learn from others make these good days for socialising.
Shoulder problems – « these experiences are a heavy burden for me to carry – I feel the weight of the world upon me ».
Rheumatism – « I work so hard, but nobody really appreciates my efforts – what am I doing this for? »
Cold hands – « I am not sure that I am up to the task – this is too much for me to handle »
Either through hidden arrogance or a fear of closeness that would arise from a shared responsibility or common effort. These are signs of inner solitude and the fear of open and honest relationships which reveal our vulnerable side.
Anything that we do to help this are will be doubly beneficial in prevention and with healing. Anything that puts a burden on this are has a more harmful effect and ought to be avoided. Pranayama is especially potent on all air sign days and work on the stomach meridian.
The Moon in Taurus

Sore Throats/Tonsils – « there is so much that I would like to say, but I dare not. I am afraid to express what’s on the tip of my tongue and it is hard to accept « swallow ». »
Earache and Inflammation of the ear – « I do not like what I am hearing at all. It’s all too painful. What my inner voice is telling me is true, but I do not want to admit it, let alone act on it. »
Hyper-function of the Thyroid gland – « I’ll only gain recognition if others approve of my achievements. I have little or no confidence in my own self worth. So I am constantly on the move, either to achieve something or else to escape criticism. »
Thyroid Insufficiency – « There’s something wrong with me, something missing. For some reason no one cares about me and accepts me as I am. If things go on like this, I’ll give up. I am suffocating. »
Dental problems – « I simply cannot make my mind up, I seem to lack « bite » – so many alternatives, so little time. When I finally make a decision I have endless doubts. »
The ability to express our point of view or sentiments, whether it be affection, grief or displeasure (especially if it goes against the flow of the masses) is underdeveloped in todays world. To express oneself honestly makes us vulnerable and seems to put us at risk. From our earliest days as young children we are conditioned to listen to the voice of authority, to the voices that know best.
The unconditional acceptance of the freedom of speech is the solution.
Remember that it is better to be misunderstood nine times out of ten and to be heard once sincerely than to remain silent out of fear and mistrust.
What can I do to help Myself?
Stop criticising, mentally and verbally, yourself and others. Release yourself from Judgement and enter into the realms of discernment.
