Astro-Nutrition: Eating with the Stars

There may be times when you have the desire or need to make dietary changes. When making changes to your diet, the best professional to consult is your dietician. However, there is also something to be aware of, which you can talk to your dietician about, which is astro-nutrition. Astro-nutrition considers the influence of astrological signs and planetary energies on dietary choices. You can learn how different zodiac signs can benefit from specific foods and how to align nutritional choices with astrological influences. Let’s discuss Astro-nutrition. What foods are ideal for your zodiac sign?

Aries

Aries, you are bold, passionate, and fiery and will gravitate towards bitter and spicy dishes. The color red is what represents your sign. Therefore, red fruits and vegetables, such as radishes, beets, red apples, and red peppers, are ideal for you to add to your diet, and if you eat meat, you can add some red lean meat.

Aries also rule the head, which means you will want to eat foods that can help stave off headaches, such as leafy greens, bananas, nuts, watermelon, and berries. Be careful about coffee, cocoa, and black tea consumption, as too much caffeine may cause too much stimulation.

Taurus

Taurus, you are reliable, stoic, steady, and sensual, given you are an earth sign. You appreciate good food and may enjoy comfort food a little too much, as you want to eat that all in moderation. Never deprive yourself because if you feel you are depriving yourself of the foods you love, you will overdo it, leading to regret.

The colors associated with you are brown, green, and orange, so citrus fruits, peaches, nectarines, orange peppers, carrots, leafy greens, and nuts are good choices for you to add to your diet. You want to consume plenty of vitamin C as citrus fruits are rich in them, and you may be prone to sore throats.

Gemini

Gemini, you are versatile, communicative, and adaptable, and you are constantly moving around, given that you are an air sign. The ideal foods you will need will contain plenty of energy, but you want to ensure they are nutrient-dense, such as nuts, peanut butter, quinoa, seeds, whole grains, and lean meats if you are not a vegan or vegetarian. Yellow is associated with your sign, so bananas, yellow peppers, and yellow fruits are good to add to your diet.

You may also be prone to respiratory issues and anxiety, so you must include Vitamin C-rich foods such as citrus fruits, berries, and leafy greens. Like Aries, you will want to limit your caffeine consumption as too much of it can lead to overstimulation, which can potentially worsen anxiety.

Cancer

Cancer, you are emotional, sentimental, and family-oriented, as you are the most watery sign in the zodiac. Like Taurus, you love comfort food, and you may find yourself having a sweet tooth often. Therefore, you can indulge in your sweet tooth by enjoying dark chocolate in moderation and various fruits such as berries, and you will want to ensure you add leafy greens to your diet, such as lettuce, spinach, and kale.

Comfort foods in moderation, such as lean meats, legumes, and potatoes spiced with various savory herbs, are a good fit for you. You may be more prone to digestive issues as Cancer rules the digestive tract, and the lunar phases will affect you more. Drink plenty of gentle herbal teas on your digestive tract, such as chamomile or ginger, especially during the Full Moon. White and silver are associated with your sign, so it is important to drink plenty of water.

Leo

Leo, you are fiery, charismatic, passionate, and inspirational, as you appreciate certain culinary dishes. You enjoy intense flavors, so you want garlic, onions, radishes, and ginger; they have excellent properties. Many Middle Eastern dishes are what you enjoy, as the spices are savored with appreciation.

Your color is gold, and foods such as bananas, golden potatoes, citrus fruits, and lentils are excellent to add to your diet. Be cautious not to consume too much starch, however. Since Leo rules the cardiovascular area, you will want to consume foods to help keep your blood pressure in check, such as salmon, beets, radishes, and sweet potatoes.

Virgo

Virgo, you are analytical, detailed, and attentive, as you are a naturally health-conscious earth sign. Your colors are green and brown. Therefore, the foods you should add to your diet are whole grains, brown or whole-grain rice, nuts, leafy greens, and mushrooms. Fish such as tilapia and salmon are good choices.

You will also want to add healthy fats such as nuts, avocados, and seeds into your diet, as it helps you keep your brain sharp. Your sign rules the lower digestive tract, so oats, apples, flaxseed, asparagus, and yogurt are ideal to add to your diet. You may want to ensure you take probiotics, too.

Libra

Libra, you are all about balance, fairness, and peace, and relationships are important to you, being a social air sign. If you feel imbalanced, then you suffer a lot. The color pink is associated with you, and any foods that are red, green, blue, or purple would be ones to include in your diet, which will help bring you balance. Therefore, foods include blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, apples, leafy greens, cabbage, and whole grains.

You also like the finer things in life, given that Venus is your ruler, so you will enjoy finer dishes, such as ones that include lean meats, especially lean chicken breasts with delicious herbs and spices. Remember that the area of your body that Libra rules is your kidneys, so you want to stick to foods that can help keep your kidney function balanced, as the foods listed above can. Garlic and olive oil are also excellent additions.

Scorpio

Scorpio, you are intense, passionate, private, and mysterious, the most intense water sign. Your color is black, and yes, blackberries would be great for you, but water-rich fruits and vegetables are what you need, which will help keep you balanced. That means leafy greens, including iceberg lettuce, as it has more nutrients than is given credit for, as well as watermelon, berries, pineapples, apples, and bananas.

You also want to eat fiber-rich foods, including nuts, whole grains, and the listed fruits and vegetables. The area of your body that your sign rules is your reproductive system and your colon and bladder, so watery and fiber-rich foods are essential. Garlic, ginger, turmeric, cayenne, and cinnamon are also good for your reproductive health.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius, you are adventurous, optimistic, and passionate, as you are a fire sign, and your color is purple. Therefore, the ideal foods for you would be blueberries, plums, eggplant, blackberries, carrots, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. Since Jupiter rules your sign and you tend to do things in excess because of your nature, you may be prone to weight gain, leading to other complications.

Therefore, sticking to lean meats and whole grains and limiting sugar is important. The areas of your body most affected by your sign are your eyes, thighs, liver, and sciatic nerves. You also want to ensure to add citrus fruits, leafy greens including Brussels sprouts and broccoli, shellfish, lean red meat (unless you are vegetarian or vegan), eggs, whole grains, seeds, nuts, and salmon in addition to other coldwater fish. Garlic, ginger, turmeric, licorice root, and green tea are good for your liver.

Capricorn

Capricorn, you are ambitious, goal-oriented, and a hard worker, as you are highly practical given that you are an earth sign. Your colors are brown and grey, so nuts, lentils, sardines, potatoes, and lean meats are ideal for you. Not to mention, the areas of your body that your sign rules are your back, skin, joints, bones, and teeth. You want to ensure that you eat foods high in calcium, so low-fat dairy in moderation is good for you.

Leafy greens also have plenty of calcium. Turmeric, black pepper, cloves, cinnamon, and garlic are good for your joints and bones. Sweet potatoes, avocados, sunflowers, red or yellow bell peppers, and walnuts are also foods to include in your diet as they are good for your skin and help keep it in good shape.

Aquarius

Aquarius, you are unique, humanitarian, and friendly, as you are an air sign, and you march to your beat. The color associated with you is blue, so the ideal foods for you would be blueberries, plums, and eggplants. Your zodiac sign rules your circulation, so you want to eat foods that will help improve it. Those foods include the few mentioned but also fatty fish such as salmon, onions, garlic, turmeric, citrus fruits, walnuts, pomegranates, tomatoes, and leafy greens.

You want to be cautious when eating too much red or fatty meat and too many foods with a high starch count. That can hinder your circulation. You tend to beat to your drum, and you are the type that wants to do your thing, but you do want to exercise caution when it comes to your diet.

Pisces

Pisces, you are imaginative, intuitive, and sensitive, which are common water-sign traits, and your color is light green. Since your sign rules the nervous system and thalamus, you want to stick to foods that will be good for your brain health, liver, and blood circulation. Leafy greens are essential, and being a water sign, various types of fish are ideal for you, whether it is shellfish such as shrimp or coldwater fish such as salmon, and they are good for your brain and blood health.

Other foods such as avocado, which matches the color that you represent, berries, green grapes, nuts and seeds, especially walnuts, turmeric, and a little bit of black coffee, but in moderation, and dark chocolate in moderation are ideal foods to add to your diet. Limit sugary foods as they can hinder your brain and circulatory health.

How to Eat During the Main Lunar Phases

If you want to attain optimal health, you will also want to pay attention to the lunar phases because each lunar phase affects your body in ways you would not even consider. That is because the lunar phases affect your water composition and how well you eliminate wastes and toxins.

The New Moon is a time for new beginnings, and your body is cleansing itself to prepare for the new cycle. Therefore, you want to consume fiber-rich foods like leafy greens, nuts, whole grains, and fiber-rich fruits like apples. When the waxing period begins after the New Moon, you will have more energy to expend, so you will want to eat protein-rich as well as complex carb-rich foods such as fish, meats (or vegan or vegetarian replacements), fruits, nuts, and any foods that are ideal for your sign. You can also indulge in moderation in less nutrient-dense foods, but moderation is key.

And when it is the Full Moon, it is the ideal time to detox for three days before and after. It is perfect to drink at least eight cups of water daily and consume whole and water-rich foods, primarily vegetables and fruits. Finally, during the waning phase of the moon, you will want to consume fiber-rich foods that will help you eliminate toxins that you may have consumed over the last twelve days or so. And when the New Moon arrives, you begin the cycle again.

You always want to consult with a dietician when you change your diet. If you have a particular health condition, your dietary needs may not match the Astro-nutrition guidelines, so you want to consult your doctor and dietician. However, if you are in good health and ready to make some changes, then the Astro-nutrition guidelines are something to consider. You will also want to follow your intuition and stick to what you intuitively feel that your body needs, and you will find that eating in line with the lunar cycles is helpful, too. Therefore, enjoy it, and have fun with it in good health.
