It’s fun to read astrology predictions at the beginning of a new year. Whether you believe in it or not, some of the advice can be worthwhile. I found this article, Energies of 2009, by Sarah Biermann which mentioned the digestive system. She says that the planet Saturn in the sign of Virgo this year will affect some people with unusual digestion and nervous energy.
What I do know is that I’ve had some digestive rumblings in this first week of the year. This is definitely unusual for me. So now that I know the cause is Saturn in Virgo, what’s the solution? For immediate relief, I like some herbal tea with peppermint, fennel, and maybe ginger. Maybe soon I’ll have to start my first juice cleanse of 2009.
