Winter is such a beautiful season, but for many of us it’s often marred by sniffles, head colds, sore throats or full blow flu. With over 200 known common cold viruses, nobody can be completely sure of not catching a cold, but there are certain things each sign can do to help minimize the risk – and to feel better faster if you do find yourself ill.
Scorpio is a strong and feisty sign, but not even you can keep germs at bay throughout the winter. Although your passionate, deep nature keeps the atmosphere around you charged, one thing that does increase your risk of colds and flu is a very dry environment. You do love to stay warm, and you typically have your heating cranked up high – but this dries out the protective mucus in our nasal passages, lowering our defenses and adversely affecting your respiratory system. Try turning the heating down and wearing extra layers instead, or invest in a humidifier. Failing that, bowls of water near heaters will help to keep the air you breathe moist.
