Sajah Popham: How Astrology Can Help You Become a Better Herbalist

Episode #100

Chances are you've probably read your horoscope — and I bet sometimes that horoscope was uncannily spot on and sometimes it totally missed the mark. This is how most people encounter astrology and where most people's curiosity about this ancient art stops. But astrology is so much more than just a horoscope: this complex system can teach us a whole lot about ourselves, each other, and, get this, herbs!

Sajah Popham is the author of Evolutionary Herbalism: Science, Spirituality, and Medicine from the Heart of Nature. With his wife Whitney, he co- founded the School of Evolutionary Herbalism and Natura Sophia Spagyrics, which is an herbal extracts company. Sajah trains herbalists in a holistic system of plant medicine that encompasses clinical Western herbalism, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and spagyric alchemy.

In our conversation, Sajah shares...

  • What exactly is medical astrology and how it can enrich your herbal practice
  • What astrology can teach us about nettles
  • How astrology can help us address insomnia
  • Why spagyric alchemy is his favorite way to make herbal extracts
  • The secret to making stronger herbal remedies and so much more...
