Astrological Relationship of Herbs
Astrological relationships with herbs
have been acknowledged throughout the ages. Often a chart will
be drawn up on a person to determine their areas of stress,
health risks, tension and challenges, etc. This then has a correlation
to certain herbs known to function well with that situation
and the associations they hold to cure or treatment of the condition.
Modern medicine is based on ancient herbal lore in the base
concoctions of our modern prescriptions.
The rainforests hold many exotic
plants that have allowed science to achieve the breakthroughs
it knows today...plants known to the native peoples and to their
practices. The difference in use is in the distillation processes
but the chemical components are the same and just as potent,
they've only been improved on and sanitized. Astrologically
you can use herbs to attract or shield yourself from unwanted
energies and a brief list of the astrological association and
energies will follow.
These herbs are called solar herbs and bring a sense of the
future coming to us. They are used to bring insight into our
goals, heal the sides of the body, the right eye of men, the
left eye of women, and the back. They are used to improve self-image,
release fears of dealing with the public, and improve self-confidence.
They help us understand our place in the world around us and
our purpose for walking our path. Solar herbs strengthen the
ego, are associated with Christ and Sun Gods, help to strengthen
us in purpose or in other ways to which our intentions are focused.
Physically they are used to treat the spleen, thyroid, spine,
and body fluids. They are used to ease depression, inferiority
complexes, and fear or anxiety of social interactions. They
strengthen our sharing of love, of tolerance for those we disapprove
of, and the choices we make. They strengthen ambition, independence,
and taking charge of situations. They should be taken at sunrise
and will help us get in touch with our inner self as well as
our outward self to bring about a balanced state of being.
Here herbs are used in relation to the emotions and instincts,
our ability to love and nurture self and others, and in understanding
divine ecstasy. These herbs govern the uterus, ovaries, breasts,
stomach, parts of the brain, esophagus, and serve to treat coughs
or colds. Working with the subconscious mind, they strengthen
the ability to develop one's intuition, understand childhood
experiences, feelings, fears, and bring about greater sensitivity
to our creative abilities. They are excellent for those who
fear so much they inhibit themselves, for those who are afraid
of change or using their imaginations, or who have such limited
vision that they stress and become inflexible. These herbs can
teach us about the flow of life and its rhythm, the Moon tides,
calming domestic troubles, service to family, and appreciation
of others who serve us as well as for women's menstrual needs.
Here associations are with the brain, nervous system, respiratory
system, throat, nerve sensations, speech defects, the tongue,
and memory. Virgo influence is over the bowels and Gemini over
the lungs and hands. These herbs will aid in communication and
thought processes too. The intellectual, logic, reasoning, and
conclusive results are strengthened with herbs associated with
Mercury to keep the mind sharp and alert...quick thinking. However
they are recommended for short term use as long term they lose
effectiveness and we become tolerant of them. Those who write,
pursue spiritual paths, and explore intellectual philosophies
will find they help with understanding balanced consciousness
and the subconscious mind. They are recommended to be taken
in equal parts with solar and luna herbs and teach integration,
going with the flow and understanding of the meaning of life.
Magickally they are used with lunar and Uranian herbs to bring
forth ideas and aswers intuitively. They will help you translate
the intuitive impressions into words. Ritually they teach the
power of words and value of holding to them when we *give our
Aid with sullen, melancholy, unhappy, or distressed states due
to lack of social grace. They enhance feelings of attraction
and joy, make us more outgoing and social. They also lend us
self-confidence and open us to the energies of others. Use tends
to be more with the younger person than those who are older
but serve no good when it comes to love issues. In matters of
love it is those herbs associated with Jupiter that are sought.
Venusian influence only serves to create a longing, and Jupiterian
brings about an ability to perceive options.
Aid with muscle strains, external sex organs, force and vitality.
They strengthen the desire for momentum in life, cure lethargy,
and should be used with other herbs that bring a strong sense
of directed focus. They relate to the internal sex organs and
the inner self and their energy is primal in the sense that
it allows one to *survive* or self-preservation through instinctual
applications and thus have a sort of lunar quality to them too.
Herbs of Mars lend a strong energy, and when combined with those
of the sun are supportive to those with warrior natures or those
seeking that within themselves. Strong focus and direction results
in achievements being successful...hence the reputation to bring
about manifestation of goals through the divine balanced with
the mundane producing physical results that can be seen and
validated. For a powerful manifestation herbs of Mercury, Mars,
and the Moon are used. These herbs contain active energy and
they attract that same energy to you. If you are suffering from
apathy, a sense of uselessness, boredom, wastefulness, or a
job that requires a lot of physical exertion then they will
be very helpful.
These herbs are benefactors and attract *just what you need*
in your life. They serve the liver, blood, vitality, attitudes,
adrenalin levels, fats, and promote growth on all levels. They
will help in understanding the systems active in your life and
body bringing a light to resolutions that are non-volatile in
their ethical applications. They serve in the study of ritual
and provide conscious linking between the Above and Below Worlds
of spiritual and physical dimensions as well as the Web of Life.
They balance things. In this state of balance tactful deployment
of our actions becomes enhanced, diplomatic resolutions are
found, and solid advice becomes available to be shared or used.
Jupterian herbs ease the sense of selfishness, emotional upheavals,
or giving of self to others in stressful times. This state of
balance allows us to both give and to receive equally. It brings
an understanding of the ebb and flow of energy, of karma, and
good feelings surround that.
The focus here is structure, skeletal system, ligaments,
teeth, and gall bladder. The energy here proves a source for
grounding or keeping your feet on solid ground. They bring balanced
attitudes, stability, and focus if you are given to excessive
daydreaming and wishful thinking. They bring understanding of
cause, effect, and retribution and in this help us learn to
discipline ourselves and actually bring about a sense of free-flowing
liberation as goals are achieved. If you struggle to put your
ideas or thoughts into action this is the herbal listing that
will help you do just that. When mixed with herbs of Mercury
they give a sense of tradition, knowledge or understanding of
life's mysteries, of magick, and of religion. Working with the
influence of Saturn is something you need to be careful with
because it introduces and induces change. It's great when you
feel rutted into things, but it requires letting go or abandoning
that which has rutted you. If you are of a dependent nature
this can trigger stressful moments during the release cycle.
So there you are seeing what to hold and what to release to
make room for what you want to manifest.
Here we're looking at the nervous system, many areas of
the brain, and nerve impulses. If you suffer from agitation,
stubbornness, or need mental agility and/or freedom, they can
help you. These herbs enhance inspiration, the ability to follow
your dreams, to reach for new things, to grasp a lighter approach
to life, and alleviate depression. Magically, they allow the
trusting of impulses, the following of divine insight, aid in
working with symbology, and trusting in the initiatory paths
we take in life. These herbs aid us in freeing up our thinking,
getting out of endless loops of thought that take us nowhere,
and in breaking old mental patterns. They free up relationships
based on old habits, taking others for granted, and interject
Herbs influenced by Neptune will enhance and serve the kidneys
and fluid systems of the body similarly to those of Venus. They
aid the spinal system and the parathyroid. If you have a limited
sense of vision they can help you expand that. They enhance
dreaming (conscious and unconscious), increase creative and
imaginative processes, and are very helpful to artists or those
who are seeking inspirations. They will lead you to visions,
that you can later employ. Used to enhance astral travel from
a balanced standing, but caution is made to dependency on them
so it is advised to use them as triggers only. In this way you
learn to accomplish it on your own rather than relying on substances
to bring the state of presence about.
Here we find enhancement to sexual desires and drives to
procreate. They bring to light our motivating factors which
are often based in our childhood perceptions, training, and
influences. The changes manifest slowly...like the gestation
of a child would. In this they enhance understanding and the
need to preserve life over generations. They aid in the loss
of desire, drive, or feelings of sexual frustration amid groups
of people so they are expansive.
