All of us, no matter where on the Zodiac chart we find ourselves, have herbs that can support who we are in the cosmos. There are a few herbs for each Zodiac, but in this chart I focus in on one main herb to support you. **When you get to the bottom of this post you can find the master list of herbs for the zodiac to share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
Aries- For Aries you’re going to be supported by Geranium. Geraniums begin to bloom during your birth month and offer such vibrant beauty to the world around them. Their flowers range in color from white to red. The color red represents the element of fire, of which your sign is corresponded to. Add geranium flower petals to your next batch of moon water or use its essential oil to support your complexion’s health.
Taurus- Catnip is beneficial for the Taurean because it can be steeped in tea to create a soothing nighttime potion to help you rest well. It helps boost mood, relaxation, and eases anxiety. While a Taurus typically takes a while to get angry, catnip can help during those times when you’re seeing red all around.
Gemini- Lavender is a fragrant herb that can be used to support feeling relaxed and to inspire an overall feeling of well-being. A Gemini can become distracted from tasks and lavender can help calm anxiousness when you feel like moving on to the next project too quickly. Anoint your pillow with lavender essential oil for a good night’s rest.
Cancer- One of my personal favorites (even though I’m not a Cancer) is white sage. Cancer tends to be the sign that struggles the most with anxiety, emotional upheaval, and picks up on all sorts of vibes so white sage is the best herb to support you. Smudging with white sage can help bring you back to Mother Earth and settle those turbulent emotions.
Leo- Sunflower is the herb for our fiery Leos and they’re quite the show off among the herbal community. Their bright yellow petals symbolize the sun, which is the ruling planet of Leo. Dry the petals and use them in your next bonfire offering.
Virgo- The herb I chose for the holy woman of the Zodiac is marjoram. Virgo holds the power of healing with her intentions of making the world a better place. Marjoram is a medicinal herb that is antioxidant and has antimicrobial properties. You can steep marjoram in hot water for a steamy respiratory aid.
Libra- Thyme is an herb that symbolizes balance and since Libra is all about the scales of justice we find thyme to be the best herb for a Libra to partner with. Thyme is known for offering support for balanced skin health. Many Libras struggle with self-confidence so reach for an aromatic solution made with thyme to bring out your radiant self.
Scorpio- Some folklore claims that scorpions would breed in the presence of basil and this sign of the Zodiac is represented by the reproductive organs. The sting of a scorpion can leave quite a scar, but working with basil can bring healing (even when you’ve been stung by your own stinger).
Sagittarius- Saffron is quite the vibrant spice with its fiery hues. It’s the most expensive in the herbal/spice community which makes it ideal for a Sagittarius (who loves the finer things in life). Like the Sag, Saffron is corresponded to the element of fire. A pinch of saffron in warm milk at night is said to boost your libido, not that a Sag would need help in that area. 😉
Capricorn- A Capricorn has an active mind and rosemary is known to support brain stimulation. Its herbal power offers the Capricorn the magic of its essence. Simply steep fresh crushed rosemary in hot water to feel the brain benefit in its steam as you inhale with deep breaths.
Aquarius- Aquarius pairs best with fennel because Aquarians tend to have a developed cosmic affinity to know what makes people tick. Their mind is always searching for sound philosophy and understanding to the human psyche. Fennel is believed to support focus and to help the mind retain information. It’s fragrance strengthens the mind and the memory, making this the most ideal herb to work with.
Pisces- The herb I believe to be the most supportive for a Pisces is lemon balm. Pisces tend to need support to avoid addictions brought on by anxiety. They can be restless at times and seek to self medicate. Whether it’s through traditional medicines or by relieving that itch for sugar with a massive ice cream sundae, lemon balm can ease that tension. Try creating a lemon balm honey to be used in your next cup of chamomile tea.
