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.

  • Anise,
  • Bittersweet,
  • Citron,
  • Dandelion,
  • Lemon Verbena,
  • Rosemary,
  • Sage.

The sign of Aquarius is a cerebral one, 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 wrong.

  • Clover,
  • Eyebright,
  • Fennel,
  • Lemon Grass,
  • Lemon Verbena,
  • Marjoram,
  • Parsley.

The quick-witted, fleet-footed mercurial energy of Gemini 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. These herbs are great for spells of communication and mental pursuits. Use clove or slippery elm to protect against gossip and to keep your thoughts and actions grounded.

To rid yourself of negative, bad habits as will as their root causes:

  • 2 parts Rosemary
  • 1 part: Lavender, Lemon grass, Lemon Verbena, and/or Sage

Once you’ve gathered the ingredients, put them in a large mixing bowl and mix with your hands. Place a handful or so in a large square of muslin or other porous fabric and tie up the ends. Add this to your bath.

After the sachet has colored the water, step into the tub. Lie back and visualize yourself happily avoiding the habit or other negative condition – smoking, drinking, drugs, depressions, obsessions, etc. Visualize the water absorbing your desire and need for the habit. See in your mind’s eye all the energy you’ve been giving to this negative condition.
