Exercise based on planetary strengths
Interested in people's experiences with exercise.
As my dominant planet in shad bala is Mars I favoured high intensity exercise such as crossfit, skiing down big mountains and martial arts.
This burnt out my adrenals and am now trying to do more venus and Saturn dominant exercise I.e slow weight lifting for healthy bones.
What have been people's experience with other planets such as moon, Jupiter, mercury etc based on shad bala, atmakaraka, aspects etc or other factors that support exercise?
Interested to know.
I hope that Ernst will chime in on this for some advice. My notes say adrenals and adrenal exhaustion are likely Sun/Leo affliction. Venus is more of the sustained energy, the ability to get the 2nd wind, endurance. Saturn is rest. Perhaps eating or supporting Sun and Venus will help. Low dig bala and shadbala planets may provide the best answers for your question, and direction to focus your exercise routine.
As the Sun rules the heart, I would think cardio aerobic exercise would strengthen the Sun?
I'm still a bit surprised Mars doesn't rule adrenals.
This is an interesting topic for me...
Exercise is 3rd bhava and I see my Mars connection to it to train for muscle building, rahu connection to it has always delayed me to pursue it with any consistency , Sun connection to it makes me inspired to run... my Saturn connection to 3rd lord causes me to focus on endurance too...
Venus my 8th lord and my 3rd lord dispositor shows engaging in doing occult exercises too...
So I have been a jack of all trades so far 😀
I am hoping that Pluto entering my 3rd house, where my Ketu is, will not not hinder my ability exercise!
Physical exercises are my only hope of getting better at this point!
Wouldn't exercise routines be 6th house as well?
