Astro-Walk from A to Z Through my Allotment

by Jadranka Ćoić

My passion is my allotment and astrology of course, so let me take you through to look at some of herbs or vegetables that I grow or they grow by themselves.

The leaves, flowers and seeds, all or any of them are helpful in curing absent-mindedness, depression and to give us a courage.

CarrotCarrot – vegetable ruled by Mercury. Rich with vitamin A, helps vision, reduce ageing, improves the skin are just few benefits of eating carrots, the best are eaten raw.

DandelionDandelion – weed ruled by Jupiter, oh yes every garden have them, and every gardener hate them but the leaves and roots are good for the liver, gall and spleen. 

EchinaceaEchinacea – herb ruled by Jupiter. Echinacea encourages the immune system and reduces many of the symptoms of colds, flu and some other illnesses, infections, and conditions.  Seeds and leaves helps with anaemia and indigestion as well.
