The sign of Taurus rules the throat and the neck, which includes the vocal chords,
tonsils and palate. Many natives of this sign have long, expressive necks and women
of this sign have lovely skin around the throat and collarbone area. Both sexes are
known for their melodious speaking voices and many are fine singers. Taurus's taste
buds are keen, and you thoroughly enjoy good food. You may have a tendency to put
on weight, as you get older.
Taureans are particularly vulnerable to colds, coughs, sore throats, laryngitis,
swollen glands, stiff necks, and to minor injuries around the neck. When you get
physically tired or overtense, you tend to get coughs and stiff necks. You may go
through life with a semi-permanent "crick" in your neck. Taurus also rules the thyroid
gland, which can cause serious weight problems if it is malfunctioning. In addition,
Taurus's ruling planet Venus has an effect on the parathyroids, which control the
calcium level in the body. Traditionally, Venus also rules the throat, kidneys, and
It is very important to maintain a diet low in starch, fat, and sugar, because so
many Taurean's have to fight the battle of the bulge. You tend to eat fattening foods,
to be sluggish and indolent, and to dislike exercise. You may suffer from puffy eyes
and jowls, and your face is apt to get heavier as time goes by. Moderate exercise
and good diet should be a strict discipline in every Taurean's life.
Taurus's cell salt is sulphate of sodium, a mineral that controls the amount of water
in the system. It is present in the liver, pancreas, and the hormones of the kidneys.
An imbalance of this mineral in the body can cause bloating, symptoms of congestion
around the thyroid gland, and a feeling of being waterlogged.
Some foods that contain this mineral are asparagus, beets, cauliflower, horseradish,
Swiss chard, spinach, cucumber, onions, pumpkin, raw nuts and cranberries. Celery
can help you to clear your system after over indulgence. You should also drink plenty
of water to help keep your system flushed out.
Carbohydrates have a way of turning into fat in a Taurean's body, and should be avoided.
Heavy, rich foods are also a no-no. To keep the thyroid functioning at its best,
Taureans should eat food with natural iodine, such as fish and seafood. Other foods
that will help keep you healthy are eggs, liver, kidney beans, wheat germ, fresh
fruit and green salads.
