Herbs For Every Sign

Our lovely planet provides us with many gifts. Stones, crystals,
Herbs, trees - each one is a container of natural magic, holding a
Special quality that's perfect to heal whatever ails us. Herbs can
Be mixed and combined to produce a "recipe" that's just right for
Each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an
Amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs
That correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in
Times of stress or illness. Here's a short list of herbs that seem
To be tailor-made for each of the signs, due to their associations
With both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of that

Aries - Mars

Allspice, basil, cayenne, garlic, ginger, mustard, onion, pepper.
It's no secret that Aries is the astrological equivalent of a
Bullet. It's a red-hot burst of energy that's capable of overcoming
Any obstacle by charging straight for it. The ruler of Aries is
Mars, the "red" planet, the ancient god of war who was known for his
Equally fiery temperament. No wonder, then, the herbs that
Correspond with your sign are also a bit "hot" to the taste. Use
Them in cooking to raise your endorphins, the substance Mars loves

Taurus - Venus

Apple, apricot, blackberry, cherry, heather, hibiscus, raspberry,
Rose. Taurus is the sign that's fondest of the pleasures that life
Inside these bodies can provide. Whether it's a blazing sunset, a
Symphony by Mozart, ora delicious meal, you folks are experts at
Enjoying the physical delights of the senses. It's no surprise that
The herbs you'll enjoy most are the sweet ones, since your planet,
Venus, is the purveyor of sweetness. Use each of them to satisfy
That sweet tooth..

Gemini - Mercury

Clover, eyebright, fennel, lemongrass, lemon verbena, marjoram,
Parsley. Your quick-witted, fleet-footed energy just loves variety -
In fact, the expression "variety is the spice of life" was written
With you in mind. Each of these herbs provide a different type of
Taste, and most can be combined in a light, aromatic tea you can sip
On the run. Use clove or slippery elm to protect against gossip and
To keep your thoughts and actions grounded.

Cancer - Moon

Aloe, lemon balm, chamomile, mimosa, lavender, lilac.
Nurturing is your business, Cancer, and you distribute your soothing
Touch to one and all. There's nothing you like better than a home
That smells good, too, whether it's because there's something
Wonderful simmering on the stove, a vase of fresh flowers on the
Dining room table, or a warm, fragrant bubble bath waiting for you
Upstairs. Each of the herbs listed above are known for their ability
To calm, heal, or bring a wonderful aroma to the environment. Use
Aloe to soothe burns and scrapes and chamomile for a wonderful
Bedtime tea.

Leo - Sun

Chicory, cinnamon, goldenseal, rosemary, St. John's wort,
Sandalwood. Your planet is the Sun, Leo, the source of life and
Warmth that keeps us all alive and provides us with the energy we
Need to keep pursuing our life's quest. It makes perfect sense,
Then, that the bright, cheerful sunflower would be the perfect
Representation of your equally bright and happy sign. Herbs like
Goldenseal and St. John's wort are tailor-made for you, too,since
Their ability to keep the body resistant to illness and depression
Are well-known. Mix a bit of chicory with your morning coffee to
Help remove any obstacles that come up.

Virgo - Mercury

Caraway, dill, eyebright, horehound, lily of the valley, marjoram,
Savory. Your quick-thinking meticulous sign likes nothing better
Than a mental challenge, Virgo, whether it's organizing a pile of
Papers at the office, solving a puzzle, or learning a new skill. The
Herbs listed above are all well-known for their subtle abilities to
Strengthen the mind, and many can be mixed together in teas to give
You a boost you often need at the end of a long day. The lily of the
Valley seems perfect for you, too, with its subtle, "clean" scent and
Delicate flowers.

Libra - Venus

Catnip, passion flower, persimmon, rose, sugar cane, violet. There's
No sign as fond of pleasing others as yours, Libra, whether it's by
Saying just the right thing to bring warring factions together, or
By using your polite charm to draw the object of your desires
Closer. Of course, catnip is famous for its effects on our feline
friends, but its also traditionally used in conjunction with rose
petals to bring loving relationships that last forever. Since you're
ruled by Venus, you're capable of being every bit as sweet as the
sugar cane - but if you need a bit of help to attract a beloved, use
this potent plant (sugar cane) that's long been used to conjure
love - sweetly.

Scorpio - Pluto/Mars

Ginseng, dill, patchouli, pomegranate, saffron, vanilla.
As fond as you are of intensity and intimacy, Scorpio, it's no
wonder the herbs you'll love best are famous for their use in
stirring up passion. Drink ginseng tea (or offer some to your
beloved) to induce a magnetic physical attraction. Wear patchouli to
arouse lust and silently conjure the magic of the Beltaine rituals.
Present the object of your desire with a pomegranate, the fruit
traditionally associated with seductive Pluto, your ruling planet.

Sagittarius - Jupiter

Anise, clove, fig, hyssop, mugwort, myrtle, nutmeg, rosemary, sage.
There's no sign that hangs on to youth with more fervency and
determination than yours Sagittarius. To keep that youthful
appearance and disposition going as you travel the world in search
of yet another experience, drink a tea made of anise, rosemary, and
vervain. To aid in making your dreams more prophetic than they
already are, use mugwort. Burn clove incense to attract the wealth
you'll need to pay for your travels.

Capricorn - Saturn

Comfrey, horsetail, mint, poppy, sassafras, woodruff.
You've always been described as a very "focused" sign, Capricorn,
intent on self-sufficiency and material success. The influence of
your planet, Saturn, gives you the ambition and self-discipline to
attain those goals, and to ensure success and prosperity in business
matters, too. Each of the herbs mentioned above are known for their
ability to attract that success, and most can be mixed together in a

Aquarius - Uranus/Saturn

Anise, bittersweet, citron, dandelion, lemon verbena, rosemary,
sage. Your sign is a cerebral one, Aquarius, and your ability to
turn "odd" or eccentric ideas into strokes of genius is well-known.
Since communication (and mass communication in particular) is your
specialty, the herbs above are all associated with the air
principle, which rules the intellectual side of life. To increase
your already powerful intuition, use citron, clover, or rosemary.
Above all else, listen to that intuition. It will seldom prove to be

Pisces - Neptune/Jupiter

Aloe, bay, cotton, eucalyptus, lavender, Norfolk Island pine, rue.
As the most sensitive and psychic of all signs, Pisces, yours is the
one that requires help to ward off the adverse thoughts and
intentions of others. Since you have no boundaries to keep you
separate from others, you also need protection against negative
influences. To that end, use rue, a powerful herb known to ward off
ills of every kind. To stay positive and healthy keep a lavender
plant growing either outside or inside your home.
