2) Astrological Herbalism Consultation
This consultation combines the features of the Traditional Western Herbalism consultation with archetypal astrology and alchemical healing principles. This is for the client who is wanting to uncover the connections between physical symptoms and underlying psycho-spiritual patterns. In addition to physical causes, an illness may have roots in personal and inherited trauma, imbalanced psychological complexes, self-harming beliefs, social and environmental toxicity and injustice, and more. Here we explore both the material and non-material contributions to illness by looking at the natal chart and/or current planetary transits to the natal chart. The astrological herbalism consultation includes:
- All of the elements outlined above in the Traditional Western Herbalism consultation. In the initial consultation we will focus on just one or two of the client's primary health concerns. Subsequent consultations will address other health concerns, as needed.
- An astrological assessment of how patterns in the natal chart may be influencing the primary health concern(s) and baseline constitution. Subsequent consultations may explore how other patterns in the natal chart and/or planetary transits (past, present, and future) may effect the psyche, soma, and spirit.
- Recommended remedies may include physical interventions (diet change, herbal formulas to balance the symptoms of the primary health concern, exercise, nutritional supplementation, etc.) and/or psycho-spiritual interventions (a personalized astrological herbal formula to balance the psyche-soma-spirit constitution, ritual, mantra, talismans, mindfulness, immersion in Nature, etc.).
- We will discuss the planetary archetypes and their myths, how these sacred stories apply to our personal stories, and how to build stronger connections to these archetypes in order to guide the manifestations of their energies in positive, healthy directions. We will also discuss how certain medicinal plants correspond to one or more planetary archetypes and how using plant medicine may help us come into healthy alignment with these archetypes.
