Astrology and Weight Loss is a touchy topic. People occasionally email, asking for a ‘friend’, if there are some Ascendant signs that run more to a larger frame. Or, a perennial fave, the best astrological transit to begin a slenderizing regime. Of course, not everyone is weight or size conscious. Beauty and health can be present in a variety of shapes and dimensions. But this post is not about that the socio-cultural aspect of people’s physiques or fat as a feminist issue.
And there is relevant astrological info.
Saturn Transits – especially to the Ascendant – seem to make one thinner or at least fitter and more strong. All that discipline, obsession, quantified self-analysis and being in too foul a mood to party = a chic physique. It is the reward of Saturn. But still, you scowl. Or if you smile it’s at your spreadsheets or when you wake up in the morning, solo, clean and already excited about the tasks that lie ahead of you. Saturn Transits can be self-critical or, ideally, an opportunity to assess situations with rational objectivity.
Jupiter Transits are when you’re happy as hell but wake up one morning unable to fit into your clothes
Jupiter transits feel a whole lot more fun but you get a kind of reverse body dysmorphia. You think you’re super-hot all the time & life can revolve around sensual pleasures, croissants, camaraderie, gourmet everything, and non-stop expansion. Your world grows wider and so does your waistline. You can be too busy making money and love to give a fuq about the sort of kilojoule/ macronutrient consciousness that fires truly rad results. Jupiter doesn’t measure, Jupiter does not judge. Jupiter Transits are when you’re happy as hell but wake up one morning unable to fit into your clothes. But hey so what, you go out and get new ones, upsizing, on credit.
Picture the contrast between the two. Saturn, hydro-flossed and content in an organic hemp t-shirt early to bed at night reads Wheat Belly, Your Food Is Plotting To Murder You, Processed Food Is The Devil or another dystopian diet book in bed before going to sleep at the prompt of his fitness tracker. If not out carousing, Jupiter stays up late reading A Dance With Dragons, slurping Blue Devil Hoochie Juice and gnawing on a baguette with some butter. When on a health kick, Jupiter might sprinkle some Turmeric around.
Saturn Transits Lean Everything Out
If Saturn is up all night, he’s popping anti-inflams and Modafinil, hissing “sleep is for slackers” as their mental mantra?
So, some Astrology and Weight Loss basics?
If you want to start what they used to call a “reducing regime”, start with a Dark Moon. The idea is that you whittle away your waist as the Moon likewise wanes.
And, this is not scientific by any means but the Fixed Sign Ascendants seem to trend toward the larger frame. Water Ascendants hold Water and Taurus Rising suits being fleshier.
