Fitness for Virgo
Your Ruling Planet: Virgo
is ruled by Mercury,
the inquisitive, intellectual and objective planet.
The Part Of The Body Your Sign
Rules: Virgo rules the lower digestive track.
Your Metabolism: High.
Your Health Profile:
Virgo's lower tummy (intestinal tract) is,
unfortunately, the first part of his or her body to feel stress.
Before you run for the Milk of Magnesia, try making a change
in your lifestyle that can prevent these attacks. Meditation
and an exercise program that emphasizes total-body relaxation
and proper alignment will appeal to your perfectionist tendencies,
while combating their inevitable physical effects. Fortunately
for you, Virgo, you tend to stay slim.
As the rest of the zodiac knows, never tell
a Virgo to relax! A Virgo likes to keep busy and productive.
In an average day you do the work of two people... or maybe
four! Realize that others may be better able to take the time
they need to put their feet up and relax, but having them
watch you work makes you feel like a doormat. Learn to delegate
chores and responsibilities. Set up a system of initiatives
for those close to you. Allow for the fact that people will
always do things on their own schedule (not yours) and "perfectly
clean" anything isn't always possible.
Virgo is one who must be careful with his or
her diet. You tend to eat the most fresh fruits and vegetables
of all the signs, not surprising since Virgo rules the autumn
harvest. Many Virgos are vegetarian. Just be sure you are
getting a wide variety of all the right foods, since it will
take good organization to be sure you are not missing iron,
or any other nutrient, from your diet. Happily, Virgo is the
world's greatest planner and well organized about anything
and everything in life.
You do have the tendancy to see things in black-and-white
extremes. Don't dump your diet for one transgression! Since
you like things orderly, keep a food diary, or draw up a chart
of your progress at the gym. Since Virgos need all the de-stressing
they can get, add some easy, pleasant exercises to your routine
just for the fun of it, like biking or walking. Everything
doesn't have to be a project.
Most importantly, distract yourself now and
then. Virgo worries. Virgo worries a lot! You run the risk
of going a little overboard and getting somewhat compulsive.
Remember Virgo: tomorrow is another day.
Your Biggest Asset:
Your best quality is great endurance, rather
than brute strength. Try sports that require going the distance,
like hiking, cross-country skiing, long-distance running,
and, for the iron-man and iron-woman Virgo: triathalons! Just
don't expect to have deep and abiding love for sprinting or
Your sense of organization and sometime-motto
"anything worth doing is worth doing well" are other Virgo
assets, provided you don't go overboard.
What Drives You Crazy:
If you haven't caught my drift by now--it's
you! You can be your own worst enemy, Virgo. Stop driving
yourself crazy by worrying about what might happen. Go for
Yes, all great athletes are driven, to some
degree and yes, being physically fit means being careful with
what you eat and do. But being too obsessive or driven can
also mean stress fractures, muscle pain and unnecessary disappointment.
It's good to strive, but you can over do it, too. Overweight
Virgos (there may be one or two) beware: an eating disorder
could crop up if you let your perfectionist tendencies run
