LEO ASTRO-HERBALISM for anxious tension and menstrual irregularities


As a herb of Leo, Motherwort calms and strengthens the cardiovascular system and helps the vital force to recover from burnout. A nervine specific to the emotional and physical heart, Motherwort (Leonarus cardiaca) protects from the corrosive effect of internalizing others' projections.

Venus owns this herb and it is under Leo. There is no better herb to drive away melancholy vapours from the heart, to strengthen it and make the mind cheerful, blithe and merry.

-Nicholas Culpepper
