Horsetail Spagyric Tincture
The object of plant alchemy is to supplement forces lacking within the body (chakras), tempering energies and restoring balance, both physically and spiritually.
“Alchemy provides the perfect medium through which the state of perfection or harmonious balance can be gained.” ~ Frater Albertus, The Alchemist’s Handbook
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense):
Chakra – Root
Day – Saturday
Planetary Ruler – Saturn
Plant Parts Used – above ground parts
Energy – boundaries, stability, structure, groundedness, stamina, discipline, patience, karma, basic survival and perseverance, time and timelessness, aging and the cycle of life and death.
Of all the ancient planets, Saturn has a reputation for having difficult energy, a hard taskmaster. When in balance and used wisely, Saturn helps your life journey, both physically and spiritually. It helps you overcome obstacles and blockages, learn the lessons life is trying to teach you to move forward and be stronger. You may be more able to understand the Karmic lessons of this lifetime, take a timelessness view and to persevere upon your spiritual path
