Planetary Apothecary for Transits
Aries Transit Overload
Although not explicitly stated in the book, Planetary Apothecary could be beneficial for handling transit influences as well as your birth placements.
April is heavy with Aries energy having peaked on April 3rd with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Black Moon Lilith transiting through Aries.
Right now, anyone can benefit by looking through the Aries chapter even if you do not have natal planets in Aries. The violent and unpredictable energy around the world right now is upsetting nearly everyone.
Aries Wellness Examples
- The essential oil Vetiver with its deep, dirty earthy scent will put your feet back on the ground amidst the chaos.
- The flower essence Impatiens will support slowing down and taking deep breaths when you feel stressed and impatient.
Walking the Talk
With so much emphasis on action-oriented Aries, and Uranus in Aries for the next seven years, sometimes reading and talking about what is happening isn’t enough – you need to do something about it as well. Planetary Apothecary is a compact action plan to regain a sense of well-being during any transit you may have, or simply to maintain your innate personal balance year round.
