Botanicals by Astrological Signs
Good morning holy angels. We hope you are enjoying this fine day, mug in hand, and some jams (we recommend any of our curated playlists) playing in the background. Settled in? Booty feeling comfy? Good.
This month, we thought it would be fun to pair some of our favorite herbs with zodiac signs. If you’re an avid reader of our tarot blogs each month, you already know what to expect. We joined heads with local bruja and tarot reader, Leo (They/Them) and combined our herb knowledge with their expertise in astrology. Whether you’re a passionate fire sign or calm and collected water sign, we can recommend which herb would suit your energy the best. So add these into your weekly ritual in smoke, smolder, or sip form and step into your full zodiac power.
