Alright... I confess!!
I really struggled with learning astrology when I first started.
I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me! I'd read about a planet or a sign of the zodiac and afterwards wouldn't be able to remember anything about it. It was like in one ear out the other.
I thought maybe I wasn't smart enough, couldn't understand it, it was over my head, or that I just wasn't meant to be an astrologer...
Until I started to study medical astrology and began to directly see the astrological forces in people and plants.
You see, I think a lot of the time when people approach the study of astrology, it often remains in the realm of the intellect, with a focus on memorizing the qualities and characteristics of each sign and planet.
But who likes to memorize?! I certainly don't.
I'd rather learn something by heart.
And the difference between learning something by heart vs. memorizing information in the mind lies in have an experiential understanding- something that you directly perceive. And the only way to directly see the astrological patterns and experience them is to have the pattern become a sort of lens that you see the world through.
The principles of herbal medicine provide a valuable framework for a way to directly experience the forces of astrology through plants, as well as seeing them within the people you work with.
