Tantalizing pieces of information about body-types have been channeled over the last 20 years.
The four topics we will discuss are: what defines each body type, what foods work best with each of them, what is the best way to use exercise or other healing techniques for each body type, and some hyperlinks to pictures of people that present good examples of what each of the body types looks like for your comparison to your own.
First, let us provide some general information on body types. Body types are based on the astronomical bodies in our local solar system, starting with the Sun, then the Moon, then Mercury and so on all the way out to Saturn. The other planets, Uranus and Neptune and the planetoid Pluto only provide influences on the main body types. Newly discovered planetoids near Pluto will probably eventually be seen to have body type influences as well, but that is a topic for future channeling. For now, since any planetary body further away than Saturn has only a small influence on a minority of people we will concentrate on the main body types.
Most people have two body types in combination, meaning their body reflects the characteristics of two distinct planets; for instance, Solar and Mercurial, or Martial and Jovian. You will have to decide, unless you get some channeling on it, which two planets influence you and which of those two is dominant. It usually only takes a few minutes reflection after you have read all of this material and processed it. We have included some links to pictures of some classic examples of each type to help you along.
There are a few people who show only one body type and a few people who actually show three main body types. If you have only one body type, it will be to facilitate a life task or karma. If you have three, one of them will be a small influence, generally 10% or less.
There are seven main body types. Less than 10% of the population is influenced by one of the three outer planets. We have listed them because they help explain the appearance and characteristics of some people even more precisely. An example would be the famous Russian monk, Rasputin. His Plutonian influence was revealed by his mesmerizing eyes, high forehead, and the fact that, while controversial, he still maintained a loyal following. We will discuss each body type and influence thoroughly using examples to eliminate confusion.
There are some very practical reasons to understand body types. Each works best with a diet that suits it well. That can be easily seen in a large household. You may have some Martial types that adore protein mixed in with Saturnian types that love a broad based organic diet and a Venusian that just loves sweets. That makes for interesting dinner planning. Most families compromise as they go along but understanding the unique needs of all parties simplifies matters.
Have you ever noticed that people seem to fall into patterns that work for them? Some people just need to shun meat, often preferring a vegan diet. When they eat meat, it seems to make them ill. Others thrive on milk and cream, or luscious desserts and sweets while others are meat eaters, feeling weak and cranky without regular ingestion of animal proteins.
Some people just love to jog, they can do 6-7 miles a day; while others crave resistance training, and the only thing that satisfies them is the muscle burn they get heaving iron in the gym. Knowing your body types can help you understand what works best for you, making it easier to stay on the path to good health.
Here are a few tips for reading this information.
Vision activates 65% of the neurons in your brain. Keep your eyes open and try to stop noticing things in your environment: it isn’t possible; you are hard wired to use your eyes for perception. That is why you close your eyes to really taste or hear or feel, it allows more of your neurons to switch to that sense. Therefore, we suggest that you use the hyperlinks to view examples of the body types even if you think you remember what some of these people look like.
Please take into account that people can deliberately change their natural appearance. Marilyn Monroe is a great example; her hair was reddish until she bleached it to her signature platinum blonde. She also used make-up to hide her freckles. That is one reason why we wanted to display many images of each person as well. Please also look at the entire body, rather than just the face.
The public domain is the best place to view people in a natural state rather than publicity pictures. Please ignore the occasional extraneous pictures of people or things that accompany our topical subjects on the public domain sights. They have no relevance to these discussions.
That said, please read, click and enjoy…
Lunar is luminous. The skin is pale or seems lit up from within. The face tends to be round. The body is curvy, but not tall; most Lunars are short to average in height. Think of how round the moon is in the sky; that is the shape you will see in the Lunar face.
Lunar men have a pear shape. They are rounder around the hips and narrower around the chest than average. Their legs are more easily developed than their upper bodies and they can excel at cycling, running or soccer more easily than a sport that takes a lot of upper body power, like baseball. Nonetheless, the Lunar is so persevering that you will find them throughout the sports world. Ironically, a lot of Lunars enjoy golf and bowling, for example, and excel in strategy rather than power for the most part.
The Lunar woman is often seen as the paragon of classic wife and mother fantasies: cute and curvy, with excellent cooking and baking skills, obedient, emotionally nurturing and great with children. Much of this reputation goes back to earlier centuries when Server women often took Lunar bodies to be more emotionally perceptive and persevering, as well as classically attractive in order to have many mating options. Now, although some women are born into the Lunar body type because they plan on having lifetimes that fit the stereotype, others may surprise potential lovers by having only some of these interests, traits, or skills.
Lunar men tend to get beer-bellied as they grow older; Lunar women just see their waistlines expand slowly over time. The classic cartoon Betty Boop is a classic Lunar female body type, petite and curvaceous. Wimpy from the Popeye cartoons is a male Lunar type.
Lunars can be naïve and easily hurt or manipulated when young. They need to exercise their native ability to see clearly to the heart of a matter. If they do not develop their perceptive skills, Lunars tend to become either cynical or depressed and withdrawn as they grow older.
Lunars have sensitive faces as well as delicate internal organs; especially the liver, kidneys, and intestines.
Lunars love dairy products from any animal source. They like dairy products so very much, that they may raise goats, yaks, sheep or cows to enjoy the freshest available dairy products. If they have another body type influence that affects them; if they are part Solar, for example; they may drink soy milk to alleviate their allergy to animal milks, but they crave that dairy texture. This includes cheeses, yogurts, puddings or ice cream depending on the individual.
Lunars are also usually attracted to onions and garlic to help clean their digestive tracts. They want savory, stick-to-the-ribs hearty food, like root vegetables and nuts. Comfort foods rather than really exotic foods are favored, simple beer or wine rather than fancy mixed drinks or liqueurs. And yes, Lunars enjoy alcoholic beverages, especially beers or grain based alcoholic beverages.
Lunars are the body type most compatible with the consumption of grains. Lunars invented breads and pastas, and, in fact, the cultivation of grains as food. Anyone who has ever enjoyed a fresh baked loaf of bread or bowl of spaghetti has Lunars to thank.
The easiest way to keep your weight balanced is to reduce portions of dense foods and alcohol, and increase the consumption of lighter foods. Overweight and too much alcohol consumption are big issues for Lunars. They need to eat foods that aid digestion and to eat slowly. Drink moderately, or if you cannot, get support to stop alcohol consumption altogether. Lunars actually suffer little to no negative side effects from consumption of coffee and tea, so those may be acceptable substitutes for alcohol.
Liberal consumption of vegetables, whole grains, and nonfat dairy products will offset the desire for so many denser foods Lunar bodies seem to digest poultry, game birds, fish, rabbit and eggs better than meats from larger animals. Rather than trying to deprive yourself, eat more of the lighter foods you like before you consume the heavier.
Lunars benefit from nice walks with the dog, tai chi, or gentle yoga and meditation, rather than extreme forms of exercise. Moderation is the key to keeping a Lunar fit.
