Beans, Corn    Full Moon Start 
(or Plant by the Moon) 

     Spring is just around the corner and I don't know about you but my hands are just itching to dig into the dirt and plant anything that will grow in cool weather! My Taurus sun is an enthusiastic gardener.

     This year, as every year, I'll start my veggies under the different phases of the moon: root vegetables (veggies grown under the soil such as beets, carrots, onions, and potatoes) should be planted when the moon is New or April 8 and May 7, 2024. The up-top vegetables (veggies grown above the soil such as cabbage, peppers, pumpkins, and tomatoes) should be planted when the moon is Full or April 23 and May 23, 2024.

     If you don't have a greenhouse, start your seeds inside in containers in a place where they will get 5 or 6 hours of sunshine, lightly water the soil, plant your seeds, and then cover the containers with cling wrap or tray tops.

     Seasoned gardeners, such as myself, know from experience what berries, fruits, and veggies we enjoy growing in our gardens and we all know what we like to eat. The list below includes beneficial and supportive foods for each sun sign as well as bush, flower, and/or fruit favorites.

  Herbs & Sun Signs

     There's nothing like the tangy flavor of chives on potatoes, the hearty seasoning of garlic in spagettii, the happy aroma of cinnamon, and the soothing, refreshing fragrance of peppermint.

     Some time ago, in a Herbology class, I told my students to smell each herb then notice how it's fragrance affected his/her body. Those who inhaled the lemon thyme leaves said they felt calm. Those who smelled the aroma of basil said the scent made them happy. And those who inhaled the robust fragrance of the sage said the smell reminded them of the holidays.

     During the class wrap up, I shared with my students that the aroma of simmering cinnamon and orange peel in water creates the feeling of "being home for the holidays" and that rosemary will help make a person's hair shine. (Just put some rosemary in a cheesecloth bag then put it in a saucepan of water. Boil it, let it cool then use it as a final rinse)

     As I told my students, herbs are Mother Nature's Medicine Cabinet. But in addition to being medicinal, herbs add zest, flavor, spice, and zip to life.

Aries: beneficial herbs are chamomile, to help calm; peppermint, helps regulate the brain and nervous system; and rosemary, a relaxant.

Taurus: beneficial herbs are irish moss, a cleanser; myrrh, thyroid gland cleanser; and sage, both a relaxant and diaphoretic.

Gemini: beneficial herbs are chive, an antibiotic; licorice, respiratory system cleanser; and mullein, an antibiotic.

Cancer: beneficial herbs are alfalfa, a diuretic; juniper, an antibiotic; and nettle, helps calm a nervous stomach.

Leo: beneficial herbs are garlic, a heart strengthener; hawthorn, helps reduce high blood pressure; and rosehips, an antibiotic.

Virgo: beneficial herbs are fennel, a cleanser; ginseng, a digestive tract cleanser; and nutmeg, a relaxant.

Libra: beneficial herbs are false unicorn, a cleanser; marshmallow, a relaxant; and sassafras, a purifier.

Scorpio: beneficial herbs are mistletoe, a relaxant - but use in small doses; peach, promotes healthy hair; and queen of the meadow, a diuretic.

Sagittarius: beneficial herbs are hops, a cleanser; okra, a digestive tract cleanser; and quassia, a cleanser.

Capricorn: beneficial herbs are hyssop, a blood purifier; mullein, a skin cleanser; and pennyroyal, a relaxant - do NOT take while pregnant.

Aquarius: beneficial herbs are comfrey, Mother Nature's cure-all; parsley, a digestive system cleanser; and rosehips, a cleanser.

Pisces: beneficial herbs are arrach, a nervine or relaxant; chickweed, a blood cleanser; and shamrock, a diuretic.

      By the way, basil helps create happiness and dill helps improve eyesight.  

     And, did you know in the western region of the United States, St. Patrick's Day, the 17th of March, is the day to plant Potato seeds and Peas?
