Each season is a different outfit, so to speak. Spring is an outfit. Summer is an outfit. Fall is an outfit. Winter is an outfit. Basically, to put on another outfit Mother Earth goes through changes – seasonal changes. Now, because we are one with our Great Mother, we too go through changes during seasonal changes. This is why there exists ‘seasonal allergies’ amongst many people. As the seasons change, so do our bodies. It’s always best to be conscious of seasonal changes so as to be in harmony with them.
Okay, let’s talk a little astrology now in relation to detoxing.
Detoxing is recommended for ALL signs of the Zodiac. It’s just a question of when your body and soul will get the most benefit from the detox ritual. Generally, detox during the month preceding your sign’s month, because that’s when your energy is lowest. For example, Scorpios low energy time is during Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22), which is a month before Scorpio’s high energy time, which begins on October 23 and ends around November 22nd.
Scorpios secondary low energy time is during the time of its opposite sign Taurus (April 20 – May 20). Scorpios energy get really low here during this time which makes it an ideal time to cleanse the body.
So, for every other sign, the sign that comes before your sign is your sign’s low energy time (month).
For those who may not be astrologically astute, the following is for your astrological edification:
- Aries is the opposite of Libra and vice versa.
- Taurus is the opposite of Scorpio and vice versa.
- Gemini is the opposite of Sagittarius and vice versa.
- Cancer is the opposite of Capricorn and vice versa.
- Leo is the opposite of Aquarius and vice versa.
- Virgo is the opposite of Pisces and vice versa.
To make matters easier, following are the time frames for each sign:
- Aries (March 20 – April 19)
- Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
- Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
- Cancer (June 21 – July 23)
- Leo (July 24 – August 23)
- Virgo (August 24 – September 23)
- Libra (September 23 – October 22)
- Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
- Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
- Capricorn (December 23 – January 20)
- Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
- Pisces (February 19 – March 19)
The sign opposite from your sign denotes your secondary lowest energy time of the year. That’s because the Sun is in the sign of your opposite sign, which means the Sun is debilitated or in detriment in YOUR sign because the Sun’s active energy is in the sign that is your opposite.
The same is true when things are reversed. When the Sun is in Aquarius (January 20- February 18), Aquarians naturally benefit from an extra surge of energy whereas Leos’ energy is low because the Sun is in detriment or debilitated for the 30 days the Sun is in Aquarius.
The above (pertaining to the Sun in exaltation and detriment) is only applicable with Leo and Aquarius because they are astrological opposites and the Sun rules Leo so Leo and Aquarius represent the time when the Sun (when or as considered a planet, despite being an actual light) is exalted and debilitated.
It’s recommended that you detox in the month before your sign’s month and/or 6 months from your next birthday or when the Sun is in your sign’s opposite sign.
The next best or most ideal time to detox would be every seasonal change (meaning every 4 months).
It’s also beneficial to detox twice a year at every solstice (Summer and Winter) or every equinox (Spring and Fall).
You don’t have detox four times a year. At least once a year would suffice, though the more you detox (depending on your diet and lifestyle), the better!
