Body of Virgo

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. Virgo, for example can get tense quickly because she is a workaholic. You can read about the body of Virgo and how to keep it healthy in the following.

Virgo is the Sign which represents physical health and hygiene. Thus, usually, Virgo dominated people are the trendsetters when it comes to detox, green smoothies, power food, organic food – the list goes on and on. That’s because Virgo is keen on keeping herself pure in a way – always aiming for perfection. BUT these pedantic features affect her emotionally since, in order of attaining perfection, she has to stay in control non-stop. In turn, letting loose can become a huge challenge – especially on the toilet. The consequence is obstipation. Digestive disorders, in general, can actually present an issue.


…Virgo tends to set (though being a realist) unrealistically high goals for herself to achieve everyday or rather tons of goals. Thus, she usually tends to set herself up for disappointment. Although she accomplishes most of the goals immaculately, she herself ends up with lower self-esteem. Now two things come together: firstly the built up expectations of others and secondly her own insecurities. Consequently, she links the follow-up tasks with anxieties which results in tense muscles and a nervous stomach. But these anxieties don’t only manifest in her organs but also in her posture. Though Virgo tends to take care of herself by exercising and maintaining a healthy diet, she doesn’t care for her needs at work at all.

On the one hand, her insecurities lead to a shy posture with protracted shoulders and a slight hunchback at work which weakens the neck muscles resulting in neck or back pain in general. On the other hand, they lead her to self-exploit herself to meet the high expectations of the others while not believing in herself. Sooner or later this self-exploitation leads right into burn-out (if the energy isn’t balanced).

To balance this energy and keep the body healthy…

… Yoga is key. Well, at least it’s one key since Yoga makes us less tense, strengthens muscles, relaxes, and trains your balance – especially poses which open up the upper body are profitable for posture AND digestion. Physical balance is significant to find inner balance since balance arises from an enhanced connection between the self and the universe. The better the balance – the deeper the connection. Still, Yoga does not always have the power to also get rid of insecurities. All the other keys you can read in the article “Happiness Virgo“.
