7 body types.

by Agata Dzierżawa
7 body types it is a picture of bodies with planet shaped head.

The body is the temporary home of your soul. Once you like it more, and once less. Sometimes you care about it, putting various balms on it, providing the right amount of movement, and feeding it with superfood. And sometimes, on the contrary, you torture it with different diets or just feed it with fast food. You get lazy spending hours immobile in front of the TV or in the contrary you utilize it without restraint. It serves you once better and once worse. Sometimes it is prettier and sometimes uglier depending on the current look trends.

In this article, you will learn 7 body types and their characteristics: Lunar, Venusian, Mercurian, Saturnian, Martial, Jovian, and Solar.

But do you know that although we are all different from each other, our bodies are similar to each other? In each ethnic group, you can observe people with certain characteristics and similar, and body features, which can be grouped into 7 body types.

Similarly to personality overlays, your soul also chooses a body type that will help it complete a specific lesson in a given life. Body type also affects your personality, physical characteristics (strengths and weaknesses), and psychological trends, including emotional and intellectual.

By becoming aware of your body type with its strengths and weaknesses you can work consciously to achieve balance.

Check the 7 body types.

There are 7 body types that correspond to the Sun, the Moon, and the five closest planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter.
