Skin 101

Let’s talk about skin, our bodies largest organ and oftentimes one of the first things we notice about a person. As someone who struggled with hormonal melasma for years and was very self conscious about it I can tell you just how much our confidence is linked to our skin!

In the realm of astrology, each planet is believed to influence different aspects of our lives, including health, personality, and even appearance. Mercury, known for governing communication, intellect, and mental agility, also plays a role in health-related matters, particularly those concerning the skin. A weak Mercury in one’s horoscope can lead to various skin issues.

A well-placed and strong Mercury is associated with clear and glowing skin. Whereas a weak Mercury might lead to a range of skin problems, including acne, eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

If you have a weak Mercury it can affect the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to the accumulation of toxins that can manifest through the skin.

Persistent acne breakouts can be due to poor digestion, toxin removal, and a weak nervous system which is under stress. Eczema and Psoriasis are also exacerbated by a poorly positioned or afflicted Mercury.

To help with your skin health, nervous system, and confidence Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces rising signs can consider wearing an emerald gemstone, wearing green clothing and using green colored home decor items. Keeping dark green air cleaning plants in your environment is another great way to strengthen Mercury.

For our Aries, Libra, and Aquarius rising signs, listening to chants for Goddess Durga and avoiding wearing green clothing and emeralds is a better idea.

Anyone with a weak, badly placed, or afflicted Mercury should stay away from pollutants and try to use all natural cleaning products in their homes and on their skin.

Astrological insights and remedies offer an alternative perspective on managing skin health. Astrology provides a spiritual and holistic approach that many find beneficial.
