Delve into the fascinating realm of astrology and wellness, discovering how the cosmic energies at play in our birth charts can guide us towards a harmonious integration of mind, body, and spirit.

By exploring the connections between astrology and wellness, we can uncover personalized tips and strategies to achieve balance and optimize well-being.


1. Understand the Elements and Their Influence:

Everything in nature is made up of five basic elements: earth, water, fire, air, and space and each of the 9 planets are connected to an element, as are all the signs.

Each of the four elements have their own qualities and correspond to different personality traits and areas of life. For example, Earth grounds us by helping us to be present in our lives, however too much earth makes us stuck and Air brings creativity, but too much makes us ‘airy-fairy’. We need space for each of the elements to flow and function properly.

By identifying your dominant element, you can align your wellness practices accordingly. For instance, fire signs may benefit from energetic exercises, while earth signs may find grounding practices more effective. You can also honor the five elements daily to balance and cleanse all the elements.


2. Embrace Lunar Energy:

The Moon’s energy has a profound influence on our emotions and overall well-being. By tracking the lunar cycles and connecting with the energies of each phase, we can establish rituals and practices that enhance emotional balance and self-care. Utilize the New Moon for intention-setting and the Full Moon for releasing negativity and promoting healing.

We tip you off when these are in the rituals section of align27, along with other lunar based rituals such as the one below.

Chandra Namaskar (Moon Salutation)

The practice of Moon Salutation (Chandra Namaskar) is a reflection of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation), just as the moon has no light of its own but reflects the light of the sun. The sequence of asanas is the same as Surya Namaskar except that Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon pose) is performed after Ashwa Sanchalanasana (Equestrian pose). Whereas the twelve positions of Surya Namaskar relate to the twelve zodiac or sonar phases of the year, the fourteen asanas of Chandra Namaskar relates to the fourteen lunar phases.

Chandra Namaskar helps you in channelizing the lunar energy; which has cool, relaxing, and creative qualities and allows us to bow to and cultivate the Moon’s soothing lunar energy. It also stretches the spine, hamstrings, and backs of legs; strengthens the legs, arms, back, and stomach muscles.

Chandra Namaskar is best practiced at night, especially when the moon is visible and particularly on a Full Moon day. While practicing at night, ensure that the stomach is empty.


3. Nurture Your Rising Sign:

The rising sign, also known as the ascendant, represents how we present ourselves to the world. It influences and is also indicative of our physical body, health, vitality and overall well-being. Pay attention to the qualities associated with your rising sign and incorporate practices that support your physical health. For instance, if your rising sign is Taurus, prioritize self-care activities like indulging in sensory pleasures or connecting with nature.


4. Identify Planetary Influences:

Explore the influence of specific planets in your birth chart on your overall wellness. For instance, Venus governs love and beauty, emphasizing the importance of self-love and self-care practices. Mars represents energy and vitality, highlighting the significance of physical exercise and active pursuits. Understanding these planetary influences can help you tailor your wellness routine to align with your unique energetic blueprint.

Astrology also emphasizes the importance of cosmic timing and cycles. By understanding the energetic influences of planetary transits and alignments, you can plan and implement wellness practices that align with the current astrological climate. This enables you to capitalize on favorable energies and navigate potential challenges with grace.


5. Balance Opposing Energies:

Each one of us has our own distinct personality and characteristics. We also have our close friends, acquaintances, a few people we are indifferent to, and maybe the odd enemy, or person we don’t get along with.

In a similar way, in astrology, there are opposing signs and planets that represent different aspects of ourselves. These relationships can be favorable or unfavorable depending on the planets or signs involved and their position in a chart, and they can have a defining impact on your everyday life.

For example, Aries and Libra, or Cancer and Capricorn. By recognizing these polarities within ourselves, we can strive for balance and integration. Incorporate activities that honor both sides of the spectrum, such as engaging in assertive exercises and cultivating harmonious relationships.


6. Ayurveda and Astrology:

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, emphasizes the importance of balancing our doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha) for optimal well-being. By combining astrology with Ayurveda, we can gain deeper insights into our constitutional makeup and implement lifestyle practices, dietary choices, and self-care routines that promote balance and vitality.

Astrology and wellness offers a holistic approach to exploring ourselves on a deeper level, achieving balance and optimizing well-being.

By delving into your birth chart and understanding the connections between cosmic energies and different aspects of your life, you can use it as a tool for self-reflection, self-acceptance and personal growth and you can tailor your wellness practices to align with your unique energetic blueprint.

Embrace the lessons and opportunities presented by your unique astrological makeup, and use them as stepping stones on your path to holistic wellness and self-discovery.
