Connecting with our Earth is the quickest way to achieve clarity and purpose. If you're a believer in magic, the idea that each herb has a spirit of its own might not seem so wild to you. From medicinal uses to spiritual ones, Mother Nature often gives us what we need to revive ourselves. But with so many plants to choose from, it's helpful to know the herb that goes with your zodiac sign to help awaken your inner witch. Whenever you smudge herbs, utilize their essential oils, drink them as tea, plant them as seeds into your garden, or light an herb-infused candle, you're inviting its spirit into your life.
Each herb contains its own unique and irreplaceable properties, and it's important to discover which ones resonate with you the most. As for me (a Gemini with a Pisces moon), I adore having a batch of lavender on my desk, a few drops of rose oil perfuming my baths, and the feel of smoke from burning mugwort leaves swirling through my space. In some ways, herbs have transformed my life. In others, they've added ritualistic calm to my days.
While I believe there's an herb tailored perfectly to the needs of your zodiac sign, you shouldn't feel limited to just one. Every single herb can benefit your life, unless of course, you (or your pet) are allergic to its properties.
