Dear Readers,

February brings Valentine's Day, calling attention to the relationships in our lives - especially the intimate ones. Many turn to Astrology for relationship compatibility; knowing your body type, and that of your partner, provides another dimension of self-awareness as well as a deeper understanding of your partner.

The Pituitary body type is light-hearted, capable and creative. Read more below about the personality and challenges of being a Pituitary.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil can be used to release "fear of Wisdom." This fear is a core emotional issue for the Pituitary body type, although other body types may also experience it. Read below about how to release this limiting fear.

As always, I hope and trust that these newsletters help you enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Health and Happiness,

The Pituitary Body Type

Do you have a childlike joy and love for life? Are you stimulated by finding ways to bring more joy and love into the world? Are you logical and analytical, yet balance your mental acuity by using your intuition? Are you stimulated by new ideas and concepts especially when you can use them to bring happiness? Do you tend to make life fun, approaching it with a childlike openness and innocence? If this describes you, you could be a Pituitary body type.


The bottom line for the Pituitary is to “feel happy.” This is the essence of what makes life fulfilling – feeling and sharing happiness. Children are naturally happy and the Pituitary body type, more than any other, has been able to retain this quality and loves to share it.


The motivation for the Pituitary is “stimulation.” Stimulation that is most rewarding is mental and intuitive – showing up as new ideas and concepts in innovative ways. Albert Einstein is a classic example of the Pituitary body type. He is curious, innovative and playful. In his own words, describing himself: "Why is it that nobody understands me, yet everybody likes me?", and "I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious."

Core Emotional Issues

The fear of wisdom is stored in the pituitary gland, and this is a core emotional issue of the Pituitary Body Type. Wisdom is the clarification of knowledge. Clarification of knowledge requires experiencing something new and moving out of your comfort zone. It means learning through your experiences. It is the experience of knowing how to apply the knowledge that takes you to the other side, which is "Illumination". Illumination brings light into the darkness of limitation. Limitation shows up as any area of your life that is not working. The fear of wisdom can be released using Ylang Ylang Essential Oil. Other core emotional issues include the fear of aloneness, abandonment and restriction.

Life Lesson

The life lesson of the Pituitary is "to emanate purity". Emanating purity requires letting go of limiting patterns and beliefs. It requires introspection and awareness to identify the areas of limitation and illuminate them.

Points of Connection

The dominant senses for the Pituitary are Mental and Spiritual. This causes them to have an active curious mind and strong intuition. Their playful, fun-loving nature allows them to connect with their emotions. Hiking or walking in nature allows them to connect with their physical side.

Activities that require mind/body integration like aerobic dancing, martial arts, Tai Chi, tennis, racquetball, hiking or walking are especially beneficial.


Celebrities with Pituitary body type include Sai Baba, John Gray, Lainie Kazan, Albert Einstein and Aretha Franklin.

How to Assess Compatiblity in Your Relationships

Valentine's Day is associated with a loving relationship between a couple. The initial attraction holds the excitement, and a long term relationship offers the fulfillment.

What does it take to have a fulfilling relationship? The most important aspects are love and respect, borne out of understanding, which comes from communication. Communication styles vary, as does each person’s ability to know and express themselves.

How do you get to know yourself, especially when you have a busy, demanding life? Meditation, walks in nature, and talking with a trusted friend are good places to start. The psychological profile for your unique body type literally takes 20 years of self- discovery and condenses it into 4 pages. It gives you the essence of your lifetime experience, your characteristic traits, what motivates you, and what it looks like when you are expressing your characteristic traits on the “at worst” and on the “at best” side. Your "at best" is your potential compared to you, not you trying to fit into someone else's mold.

Knowing your body type allows you to know who you are at a core level. It identifies your passion which helps in choosing a career path. Discovering your life lesson allows you to discover the meaning of your life experience. We tend to think that everyone is motivated by the same thing, but that is not true. While there is some similarity as in the Eye and Thyroid body types, there are subtle differences. For the Eye body type it is "to make a difference", and for the Thyroid, it is "to do something worthwhile". For the Thalamus, it is "to be worthwhile". What is your passion, what motivates you?

Reading your partner's profile is a good way to open meaningful discussion and self-exploration. It is a good way to deepen a relationship and look at what is really important for both of you. Discovering your body type is easy, just take the Body Type Test.


Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

The fear of wisdom relates to the fear of experiencing something new. It is the unwillingness to move out of your "safe" comfort zone. It is the unwillingness to learn through and from your experiences. Wisdom is the clarification of knowledge, with the experience of knowing how to apply it that leads to illumination. Illumination is bringing light into the darkness of limitation. Limitation shows up as any aspect of your life that is not working.

The way to move out of your limitations is through embracing wisdom and this is done by facing the fear. The definition of fear is false evidence appearing real, which means that fear is an illusion. To break through it, use the affirmation, "face the fear". Applying the essential oil ylang ylang to the pituitary alarm points and the emotional points on the forehead along with smelling it, accesses the limbic system of the brain which is the seat of emotions.

Accessing the seat of the emotions allows one to release limiting emotions at a cellular level. Feeling both sides of an emotion gives one the emotional experience and accesses the emotional body. The affirmation or "way out" provides the answer, the mental understanding and the spiritual lesson of the experience. Applying the oil, connecting with the emotions and the affirmation before you go to sleep allows your subconscious to do the work while you are sleeping. Working with the emotion and/or emotions in the morning sets the tone for the day. Working with all the emotions associated with a particular oil clears related aspects of the pattern. You can also include other emotions with other oils as they come to your awareness.

Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (Cananga odorata) has a sweet, flowery fragrance. Its petals are often strewn across wedding beds in Indonesia. It has long been used in skin and hair care products, especially in Asia, where it is used to promote luxurious hair. Its name means "flower of flowers".

Ylang ylang promotes calming and a sense of relaxation, as it helps release anger, tension, low self-esteem, and irritability. It helps balance male-female energies, enhances spiritual attunement, increases mental focus, and restores peace and confidence.

In addition to the Fear of Wisdom, ylang ylang can also be used to release Possessiveness, which is found in the 5th chakra at the laryngeal prominence. The other side of Possessiveness is Sharing, and the affirmation is: "I express".

Ylang Ylang can also be used when you are feeling drained. The other side of drained is Complete and the application point in the Heart Strings on the chest.
