Body of Cancer

Each Zodiac Sign has a different energy. When I say energy I don’t mean an esoterically transfigured concept. Rather I mean that each Sign generates its energy slightly differently because of different psyches. More specifically, our character entails a certain tendency to process information cognitively and then react in different ways physiologically. Thus, our different psyches reflect directly on our bodies. As a result, every Zodiac Sign has different health issues. You can read about the body of impressionable Cancer and how to keep it healthy in the following.

Cancer is a highly emotional Sign. Since we feel our emotions inside of our intestines, we sometimes tend to numb our emotions with food. Comfort food is the favorite compensation mechanism of the impressionable Cancer. Thus the gastrointestinal tract is the body area of focus with Cancer since it can get overwhelmed at times.

To balance this energy and keep the body healthy…

… emotional management is key – for example by writing a diary. But also engaging in activities to release anger issues without suppressing them, like boxing. In general combats sports which can provide a sense of empowerment since Cancer tends to feel like a victim quickly – even though it’s not always justified. Another way of emotional management is provided by breathing exercises (in Yoga for example) since you can also learn to let your feelings go by breathing. But of course, the most effective emotional manager is music. So, simply making playlists in order of evoking different moods can be huge health support to Cancer.
