Here Are Your Top Teas, According To Your Zodiac Sign

 

I’ve been interested in astrology ever since my mom introduced us to it when we were little. Astrology was a regular topic of conversation in our household, and I continued learning about it over the years.

One of the things I discovered was that ancient people used to take astrology quite seriously, especially when it came to predicting life events, and healing the body.

To Hippocrates (and others of his time), astrology was a cornerstone of medical practice. Hippocrates was even quoted to say that a doctor who didn’t study astrology had no right to call himself a physician.

Back then, the study of the movements of the stars and planets was serious business, and required a sound knowledge of reading, writing, mathematics and astronomy.

The ancient physicians believed that the stars influenced our lives, and that each zodiac sign was predisposed to certain strengths and vulnerabilities. For example, Aries rules the head, so people born under the sign of Aries are more prone to headaches, fevers, and knocks to the head than people born under other zodiac signs.

Ancient people also believed that, like people, plants were also ruled by the stars and planets. The doctors and scientists of the day assigned astrological meaning to medicinal and food plants based on how the plants look, what they smell and taste like, and how they affect your body.

Now that you’ve gotten a little bit of the backstory of astrology, here are your best teas, according to your sign!

 

Aries

The sign of Aries rules the head and brain. Your top pick is An Elephant Never Forgets, which helps get circulation to the brain, and promotes sharp memory. Aries people have a tendency to be headstrong, and dive into things head-first. If this is you, Daily Calm can help provide the necessary chill to think things over before taking action. Individual beneficial herbs include ginkgo, gotu kola, and rhodiola.

 

Taurus

Earthy Taurus rules the throat, and the thyroid gland. A pleasant speaking or singing voice is one of the attributes of this sign, so Sniffles tea is the perfect blend to keep the throat clear and strong, and helps eliminate stubborn mucus from postnasal drip. Ginseng Green Dragon contains adaptogenic herbs that help nourish the endocrine glands, including the thyroid, and keep that earthy energy moving. Individual beneficial herbs for Taurus include bilberries, seaweeds, and burdock.

 

Gemini

The sign of the Twins rules the lungs, nervous system, arms, and hands. If you’ve ever spent time around a Gemini, you will notice that they’re constantly in motion. Nervous system support is critical, so Daily Calm tea, Dreaming True, and Nitey Nite can help a Gemini slow down and relax. Individual herbs that support Gemini’s health include lavender, peppermint, and skullcap.

 

 

Cancer

The nurturing sign of Cancer rules the stomach and, in women, the breasts. Astrologers believe that Cancerians hold all their worry in the stomach, making them prone to indigestion, gas, and nausea. Aromatic Digestive can take care of bloating, and Stomach Soothing Tea will help heal issues caused by too much acid or irritation. If you’re an emotional eater, Sleek & Slender helps cut sugar cravings, and helps the digestive system work more efficiently. Individual herbs for the Cancerian: slippery elm, gymnema, and chamomile.

 

Leo

Leo rules the heart, and the spine. Generosity and big-heartedness (heart attributes) are hallmarks of the sign of Leo, along with the quality of courage (spine). To keep the physical heart healthy, the Leo should drink plenty of I Heart Pomegranates, loaded with heart-healthy herbs and berries, and Cranberry Apple Tart, which helps to keep blood pressure levels in check. If Leo is experiencing issues with high cholesterol, Coffee Quitter can help to normalize blood fats. Herbs to help Leo stay healthy are hawthorn, hibiscus, and cayenne.

 

Virgo

Cancer rules the stomach, but Virgo rules the colon and intestines. Virgos tend to store their stress in the digestive tract, showing up as IBS, constipation, or bloating. Teas that help Virgo deal with stress are important, and one of the best choices is Inflammation Relief, which soothes inflammation in the intestines, and also helps calm feelings of stress. Anxiety Relief will also provide stress relief and promote feelings of calm; this tea contains peppermint, giving Virgo an immediate sensation of feel-good. Tonic herbs for Virgos include triphala, fennel, and lemon verbena.

 

Libra

The sign of Libra is associated with the kidneys, lower back, and the glandular system, all of which are important elements in keeping the body in balance, which is what Libra is all about. To keep the kidneys in tip top shape, Daily Detox helps support the health of the kidneys as well as the liver. Love My Hair tea supports the Libra’s natural beauty, and also provides important nutrients for the endocrine system. Librans can benefit from these herbs: nettle leaf, hibiscus, and rose.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio rules the reproductive system, so teas that support hormone balance and fertility are all good picks for this sign. Female Scorpios can drink Fertili-Tea to support and normalize the balance of hormones that control fertility. Even if she isn’t intending to have children, it’s important to be healthy and balanced. Male Scorpios can benefit from teas like Go Chai, which supports circulation, and Ginseng Green Dragon, for energy and balance. Individual herbs for Scorpios are raspberry leaf, uva ursi, and damiana.

 

Sagittarius

The sign of the Archer rules the liver, so teas that help the body cleanse and detox are beneficial for Sagittarians. Daily Detox is the perfect tea to support the liver and kidneys on a regular basis, without being harsh or too strong. Because Sagittarians are always on the go, Mobility Tea helps keep the joints healthy by keeping the body cleansed, and flexible. Lucky Morning Spice contains turmeric, another liver herb, along with energizing black tea, and spices. Sagittarians can add these herbs to their daily routine: milk thistle, dandelion root, and turmeric.

 

Capricorn

This sign rules the knees, as well as the bones, and teeth. Moroccan Rose Mint is wonderful for maintaining dental health. Green teas and herbal teas are much better than coffee when it comes to having healthy bones and teeth. Love My Hair tea is loaded with bone-building minerals, but you also need vitamin C and bioflavonoids to absorb the minerals, so make sure to add some fresh lemon juice to your tea. Berry-rich teas like Strawberry Kiss and Uber-Berry are all great choices for this sign. These herbs are all helpful for Capricorns: horsetail, oatstraw, and green tea.

 

 

Aquarius

This zodiac sign rules the calves, ankles, and circulatory system. Aquarians who spend a lot of time on their feet might experience soreness in the legs, or swollen ankles. It’s important for Aquarians to support healthy blood flow in order to avoid things like varicose veins, leg pain, or water retention. An Elephant Never Forgets tea improves overall circulation, as do spicy teas like Chocomaya Chai and Lady Ginger.  Single herbs for Aquarians are prickly ash, ginger, and butcher’s broom.

 

Pisces

The sign of the fish rules the feet, and the lymphatic system. Pisceans are thought to be one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac; Dreaming True tea promotes vivid dreams, and dream recall. Daily Detox tea supports the lymphatic system, which is important to this sign. Echinacea is an important herb for the lymphatic system, along with calendula and cleavers. Other single herbs for Pisces include red root, dandelion leaf, mugwort, and red clover.

 

 

No matter what your sign is, teas of all kinds provide an amazing amount of health and nutritional benefits, and are a low calorie way to stay hydrated and energized.

 

Happy steeping,

Kita
