It is hard to find a book on magical herbalism (Western Occult Herbalism) that doesn’t make reference to the seven planets and planetary rulership of herbs. Whether you are a practicing witch, ceremonial magician or a cunning person, understanding planetary associations can provide a practical framework for herbalism.

This workshop is for those who wish to explore using herbs in magic and witchcraft. We will dive into a single planet and explore some of the herbs associated with it. You will start your journey towards building planetary herbal allies (building a Materia Occulta in the process) and leave with a deep understanding of the planet’s energy in daily life and magic. Not to mention taking home a few herbal goodies too.
