The sign of Pisces is associated with the lower extremities of the body; the feet and toes. Through the link with ruling planets Jupiter and Neptune, there is also association with the mucous membranes.
The delicacy of the Pisces physical system (exacerbated when wearing ill-fitting shoes!) and when under emotional stress, can leave these individuals particularly susceptible to colds, flu and respiratory virus ailments.
The gland associated with Pisces is the thalamus: that part of the brain responsible for transmitting stimuli to and from the sensory organs.
Pisces' cell salt is ferrum phosphate, (iron) which is needed for the manufacture of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin transports of oxygen from the lungs to other body cells. Lack of iron in the system can lead to anemia, low blood pressure, inflammations, glandular problems, and heart irregularities.
Foods rich in ferrum phosphate (iron) include:
- Apples, apricots, dates, grapes, lemons, oranges, peaches, prunes and raisins
- beet tops, lettuce, onions, and spinach
- barley, dried beans and whole-grain cereals
- kidneys, liver, lamb,
- lean beef
- egg yolks,
- natural cheeses
