We all have the 12 signs of the zodiac in us. It is not only on an emotional and spiritual level but also on a physical level. In fact, each part of the body or area of your body is also governed by particular energy from the zodiac.
In early medicine, doctors studied dreams and planets to determine the best way to treat a patient. Although this technique is long gone, it is still helpful to understand how astrology can help heal you.
In astrology, each zodiac sign governs a different part of the body. When this part of the body is facing an illness, channeling the energy of this sign can help.
