The Man of Signs (Zodiac Man)

Parts of the Body Each Zodiac Sign Affects

Ancient astrologers believed that each astrological sign influenced a specific part of the body.

In every edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac is a short astrology section with the Secrets of the Zodiac and The Man of Signs.

The first sign of the zodiac—Aries—was attributed to the head, with the rest of the signs moving down the body, ending with Pisces at the feet.

Many readers use the Man of Signs to determine the best days for gardening, setting eggs, and even having surgery (however, the Almanac does not give medical advice).
