Herbs in astrology


The Ram, the Bull, the Heavenly Twins,
And next' the Crab, the Lion shines,
The Virgin and the Scales.
The Scorpion, Archer, and the
Goat, The Man who holds the Watering Pot
, And Fish with glittering scales.

When man observed the cycles of growing plants and their seasons , they sensed a link with the ever turning wheel of stars in the sky, the zodiac. The concept of the zodiac was originated by the Babylonians certainly before 2000 BC as a method of visualizing the passage of time. The signs of the zodiac, as enumerated by Egyptian astronomer, Ptolemy, in the 2nd-century AD, are the ones we know today. Herbal medicine was also strongly linked with astrology by many early herbalists. Hippocrates, Galen, and Avicen regarded those as homicides who were ignorant of Astrology. Paracelsus, indeed, went farther, he declared, a Physician should be predestinated to the cure of his patient and the horoscope should be inspected, the plants gathered at the critical moment. Nicholas Culpeper, author of Culpeper's Complete Herbal remains the most well known of these Herbalist/Astrologers today.
