Often, astrology focuses on the human life world, yet plants make up more than 1,000 times the biomass of all animals (other than bacteria) on the earth’s land area. In this webinar we will apply our knowledge of the spiritual intelligence of our celestial realm to the spiritual intelligence of our pervasive plant realm.
First, we will discuss what plant magic is and how it differs from plant medicine. Then we will discuss plant morphology and astrological rulerships. After that, we will turn our attention to various cycles of time and harvesting plants for magical uses. Finally, we will discuss the astrological theory behind magical workings with plant materials, including newly translated material from Paracelsus.
By the end of the webinar you’ll be versed in how to harness the power of planetary and fixed star energies to enhance the transformative power of your plant magic workings.
