For optimal health, here are some suggestions for eating according to your Sun sign from the book Celestial Bodies by Kathleen Johnson.  Keep in mind that this is NOT medical advice and is based only on your Sun sign and the health problems each Sun sign is prone to manifest.  Other aspects in your chart or a medical condition could alter these recommendations.  As always, listen to your body and your intuition when choosing healthy foods.

The recommendations for the first six Sun signs are found below and next month, we will give you the last six Sun sign’s recommendations.
