What's Your Astrological Sign?
Have you ever thought about using astrology to learn more about your health? Did you know that plants have astrological influences as well?
According to an article on About.com, each of the planets (and the sun) rule over certain types of plants.
Sun plants, for example, are plants that have heart shaped leaves, yellow flowers and the plants that continuously turn to face the sun are considered "sun plants" and are used most often to treat ailments of the circulatory system and the heart.
Mars plants, however, are said to be plants that grow under adversity and, admittedly, we aren't sure exactly what that means. Martian plants most often have prickles or thorns because Mars is thought to have a combative and "prickly" spirit.
Saturn, the planet we all know for its rings, rules over plants that are "knobby" and that live long perennial lives. Saturn plants, like Kava kava, are often associated with aging. Apparently, plants ruled by Saturn can help people complete projects.
Note to parents of teenagers: use Saturn's plants to get your kids to finish their homework!
