October Plant Medicine ~ Tuberose

Welcome to the month of October. This month we are guided by the flower Tuberose. What I love about this flowre is her message of dangerous pleasure, it truly evokes the energy of Scorpio season even though we don’t enter Scorpio season until late October. Venus is currently in the sign of Scorpio and Venus is the ruler of Libra thus this energy reflects the evocative tones of the Tuberose.

Truly this essence for the month of October is daring us to live life as though it is our last day, to see the magic and the beauty all around us, to live on the edge of bliss at all times – knowing that the edge of bliss shares the same edge as despair, for what is life without contrast to truly make us feel alive?

The Tuberose is preparing us for the pluging cold depths of the scorpionic oceans we are building towards, the oceans of the subconscious mind that we are reborn from with insights and wisdom found on that knifes edge. It is no coincidence that the Tuberose is one of the most sought after scents for womens fragrances with its lingering, alluring fragrance that we cant help but feel captivated by. She is the night time come alive, Venusian energy under the moonlight.

This month we are seeing the energy of Libra in her night cloak, dancing on the edge of life as she embraces true freedom and harmony with the universe. We have a complex astrological month with planets coming out of retrograde, hard aspects and yet also potent and postive ones, as such only a flower that can hold her own without overpowering our senses is necessary. You can find the complete astrological breakdown for this month here.

The Tuberose is a complex paradox, a flower that brings about peace and calm yet at the same time a flower seen as a traditional flower of the Aztecs to honour the dead and journey to the underworld. She enhances our psychic senses whilst bringing a sense of alluring sensuality and ehances our wealth. This paradox of a flower is the perfect medicine for us to walk with this month with such a vast up and down ride of energies and she can assist you with staying in your centre as you live life on the edge. Happy October everyone xo

monthly plant medicine ~ September

Hello beautiful souls and welcome to the month of September! Here in the Southern Hemisphere it is officially Spring, in the Northern Hemisphere you are entering Autumn, both are times of gentle transition and we have the Spring/Autumn Equinox on the 22nd / 23rd of September which is also within the time of the full moon in Pisces and when we transition from the season of Virgo into Libra making this a potent time. We are in for a wild ride this month astrologically, you can check out the monthly astrology and tarot forecast here.

This month we are being guided by the beautiful Pink Rose. The Rose is known as the Queen of the Flowers and for good reason, she is beautiful, decadent, fragrant, nourishing and simply stunning to look at. This month we are being called to channel grace and bring a sense of sweetness to our life…. literally to stop and smell the roses!

The pink rose reminds us that life is full of ups and downs, that in order to have the beauty we must also have the thorns – even the so called thornless roses still seem to end up with a thorn here and there! The rose asks us to gently unfold to life, understanding that as we openly surrender to the world around us, our true beauty can shine. She also reminds us that it is ok to go through cycles and that each cycle is as valuable as the other – from the beauty of being in full bloom to the release of the old petals, ripening of the luscious and nutritionous fruits, the still quietness of baring our bones in the winter that gives birth to the budding new life again.

Where in the cycle are you at this moment? The rose asks you to reflect on this and to completely surrender to that moment, allowing yourself to feel what you need to without guilt or judgement and remember that as you are in a particular stage, others around you are may be in a different stage of their cycle so be kind and compassionate when you see others, act with grace and handle your interactions with others and the world around you with the same delicacy that you would a rose.

This is a month to slow down and be present in the moment, inhale the sweet fragrance of life and savour all it has to offer no matter what stage of the cycle you are in. Happy September everyone xo

July Monthly Plant Medicine ~ Hibiscus

Hello my loves and welcome to the month of July! How are you all feeling after this intense energy that June brought in for us? We had eclipses, retrogrades, super moons and the solstice – a big month indeed. We are officially shifting into the second half of 2021 and to usher us into this time is the Queen of the tropics ~ Hibiscus. the Hibiscus represents beauty and happiness and she is asking us to reconnect to ourselves, express our joy and be in the moment. When we pause to look at all the beauty that is around us we shift our energy into one that is more open and receptive and this in turn allows us to receive more abundance from the universe.

Astrologically speaking we are now in Cancer season which asks us to reconnect in with the emotional body as well as the divine feminine principles. We have a new moon in the sign of Cancer on July 9th which is opposite transformative Pluto who is currently retrograde in Capricorn – the divine masculine energy of the zodiac causing us to evaluate how we see the masculine energy within us all and harmonizing with dreamy Neptune who is retrograding through the depths of his home sign of Pisces. Venus and Mars are on good terms and conjunct each other at this time, bringing a time of harmony within our relationships.

This energy will ask us to slow down and connect in with the emotional body and what we truly desire to create, the art of manifestation comes from a strong connection to the emotional body and when we are out of alignment, this can make things difficult to manifest. You can find the full break down of the July astrology here.

Hibiscus is connecting in with us this month to help us reconnect to our inner desires and sense of happiness. She is calling us to review what is no longer in alignment and what drives our emotions – are we truly walking a path that is what our heart is calling us to do or are we walking that path of action and duty that doesn’t light us up any more?

July will be a time for introspection as well as connection to the world around us, the relationships with others and the way we connect in with ourselves. Do we judge ourselves harshly? Do we see the beauty or the flaws? This month will be one that asks us to focus on the beauty in all things and find gratitude for what we have and in turn become receptive to more.

Pay attention to signs of seeing this flower either in nature, on your news feed, in the products you buy or or spoken about around you as this is a moment where she is gently reminding you to check in with your emotions and to be present and notice any forms of beauty around you. Have a wonderful July everyone.
