Ginger

Herbal powders have long been used to improve the quality of a person’s life. Here is one herbal potion that will make you prosperous. Take equal amounts of ground cloves, cinnamon, mustard seed, and ginger and grind in a mortar and pestle to a fine powder. Visualize the mixture drawing wealth to you as you work.

Sprinkle some of the powder around your home. Toss it in corners. Add some to the change in your wallet and any other place you stash money. Make some up into sachets and tuck into drawers or add to baskets where you keep your mail and bills. Be creative in how you use the powder, and money will find you in creative ways.

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 due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • 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 best. Use them for spells to invoke that Mars energy.

Here are some simple spells which use ingredients found in any supermarket.

  • Chocolate is excellent for money.
  • Spinach can help you get a job.
  • Bitter foods will make you work harder, sweet foods will ease the pressure on a workaholic (try honey, not junk food).
  • Apples are sacred to Aphrodite, so cut one in half and give it to your lover to enrapture them.
  • Get the one you want out of your life out of it by serving them a bowl of turnips. They’ll leave you – you won’t have to do a thing.
  • Ginger tea, or bathing with ginger will relieve stress.
  • Oats in a sock, popped in the bath, promotes gentleness and soft beauty.

  • 3 drops Frankincense
  • 1 drop Ginger
  • 1 drop Black Pepper
  • 1 drop Petitgrain

You can wear Aries oil when  the moon is in Aries, and also when the Sun is in Aries. If you are a Aries, wear the blend to increase your personal power.
