The sign of Gemini rules the shoulders, arms, hands, and lungs. Many natives of this
sign are noted for their graceful arms and beautifully shaped hands. They are dexterous,
well coordinated, and often excel at sports and dancing. Gemini's are vulnerable
to upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, and asthma.
Gemini also rules the nerves, so natives of this sign are often excitable and high-strung.
The planet Mercury, which rules Gemini, has always been associated with respiration,
the brain, and the entire nervous system. It also governs the delicate links between
the mind and the different parts of the body, so with Gemini people the state of
mind has a great deal to do with the state of their health. Anxiety and nervousness
literally can make them sick.
Relaxation is not just something that's nice if you can get it, it is essential to
your well-being. Because you expend so much nervous energy, you should take time
to unwind, relax, and soothe your jangled nerves. Coffee and stimulants make matters
worse and should be avoided. Herbal teas have a calming effect.
Gemini people are inclined to eat on the run and are notorious junk food addicts.
To keep up your energy and high spirits, you must have a proper diet. Many Geminis
cannot tolerate large amounts of food at one time; eating four mini-meals a day can
be beneficialto your health.
The cell salt for Gemini is potassium chloride, which builds fibrin in the blood,
organs, and tissues of the body. A deficiency of this mineral can lead to clots in
the blood and circulatory problems. Potassium chloride also keeps the lungs and bronchial
tubes unclogged. Foods high in this mineral are asparagus, green beans, tomatoes,
celery, carrots, spinach, oranges, peaches, plums, apricots, and wild rice. Healthy
nerve foods for Gemini include grapefruit, almonds, broiled fish and shellfish, grapejuice,
apples & raisins. Lettuce and cauliflower help to combat bronchitis. Geminis need
calcium to keep their bones healthy; milk, buttermilk, and cottage cheese are excellent
