The sign of Sagittarius rules the hips, the thighs, and the liver. Both men and women
of this sign tend to have long, wellshaped legs. Sagittarians are graceful, coordinated,
well-developed and are often described as having a buoyant walk. Indeed, walking
is their favorite form of relaxation and exercise. Physical activity is a must; they
will stagnate and become ill if they don't get enough exercise. Although usually
lean and slender in your early years, you have a tendency to put on weight as you
get older. In Sagittarian women the weight unfortunately seems to settle on the hips
and thighs. Your upper legs are the first part of the body to tire and weaken when
Sagittarians are under strain. You often have chronic aches in the hips and thighs
and may be vulnerable to sciatica, gout, hip disease, and sometimes lameness.
Sagittarius's ruling planet Jupiter governs the liver. Jupiter's influence has also
been noted on the pituitary gland. The pituitary, known as the "master gland," which
regulates hormone production and physical growth. Sagittarians tend to have an active,
sensitive liver that instantly suffers from overuse of alcohol. They are also susceptible
to hepatitis.With a minimum amount of care, you can enjoy a long healthy life. Proper
diet is important for the on-the-go~Sagittarian. A poor diet heavy in fats, starches,
and alcohol puts an extra burden on Sagittarius's sensitive liver, and makes it harder
for them to sustain a high energy level.
Sagittarius's cell salt is silica, which strengthens the nervous system, keeps the
connective brain tissue healthy, and prevents numbness in fingers, legs and feet.
Lack of this mineral may result in lank hair, dull skin, and sores and receding of
the gums. Best sources for the silica that Sagittarians need are the skin of fruits
and vegetables, raw salads, green peppers, figs, prunes, strawberries, pears, apples,
potatoes, oats, the husks of grains, whole-grain cereals, egg yolk. Foods that particularly
do not agree with Sagittarius are fats, gravies, cream, butter, candy, and chocolate.
They should go very easy on alcoholic beverages, not only to avoid damage to the
liver but to the skin, which coarsens and ages under the effects of liquor. Sagittarians
should eat a high protein diet, with lots of broiled poultry and fish, fresh vegetables
and fruit (such as brussels sprouts, beets, tomatoes, asparagus, plums, cherries,
oranges, and lemons), eggs, skim milk, yogurt, brown rice, and whole wheat.
You should drink lots of pure water, eat four mini-meals a day rather than three
