The Tradition of Astrological Herbalism
From the east to the west, the north and the south, the link between the stars and plants goes back to the beginning of time. The integration of astrology and herbalism has been common practice for thousands of years in India, Tibet, and Western medical, esoteric, and magical traditions. It was standard practice in the Renaissance era for all physicians and herbalists to have an understanding of the stars to effectively practice their healing art.
The renowned astrologer and herbalist Nicholas Culpeper once said,"To such as study astrology, who are the only men I know that are fit to study physick (medicine), physick without astrology being like a lamp without oil." Paracelsus, the great alchemist, physician, and natural philosopher of the early 16th century also said, "Medicine rests upon four pillars - philosophy, astronomy, alchemy, and ethics." These words clearly express the integral relationship that astrology had in the role of medicine- one that is highly refined, effective and yet underutilized today.
In this modern world, we have the capacity to integrate the great traditions of the world into a new paradigm of herbalism- one that sees plants in relationship with the wholeness of life, one that enables you to use plants in a way that is profoundly healing and deeply transformational. This connection between plants and planets gives you the tools that allow you to do this, taking your herbal practice to the next level by applying astrology to the harvesting, preparation, classification, and administration of botanical remedies.
