Energy Medicine and Natural Remedies during the Sun’s transit through Pisces

The Full Moon in Virgo on March 9/10th heightens the awareness of myriad aspects of life, from great to tiny. It brings a reminder to cleanse, nurture and protect the body as the vessel of spirit. The environment surrounding it is equally important. There are so many good things, including remedies and solutions available right before our eyes and fingertips that we often fail to notice in our accustomed states of tension and overwhelm.

Earlier this year I wrote a horoscope column summarizing some holistic remedies for the signs because I knew that staying well would be a huge theme and challenge with the completion of some hardcore Capricorn transits in 2020. Here are a few vibrational healing tools I recommend for immune support, seasonal shift adjustment (including Pisces season spaciness), Mercury Retrograde hangover, and general malaise. Of course when in doubt check in with your own intuition, research or health practitioner before using them.

Essential Oils to disinfect

These are the instant anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral solution to many yucky things that humans are faced with on a regular basis. Here’s a quick sinus-clearing and air freshening blend that I like to use. In a 1 oz spray bottle combine purified water with the following organic EOs:

  • 7 drops Eucalyptus
  • 5 drops Frankincense
  • 5 drops Peppermint

Keep in a cool place and use within a week or add a teaspoon of alcohol to preserve.

Selenite for clarity

This is an excellent stone to wear, hold or use for crystal healings when undergoing dramatic life changes, over-stimulated, or mentally cloudy. It tends to have a soothing, clarifying effect on both mind and emotions and may also help to move stuck painful energy through the body and its meridians.

Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) to reduce inflammation

This extract has anti-microbial properties, helping to fight many kinds of infection. It’s not a cure-all but definitely worth trying out. It can also help reduce stomach inflammation and indigestion. A little bit of this stuff goes a long way. About 5-10 drops added to a glass of water is considered one dose.

Healing frequency music to quiet down

Everything has vibration, and when it comes to music that is quite obvious. To soothe frazzled nerves and quiet the mind it can help to listen to 432 and 528 Hz frequencies. There are many of them available to listen to for free on the internet today.

Astragalus extract for immunity

This root of this herb has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to support immune function and recovery. In addition it is considered to be an adaptogen which means that it helps the body adapt to and recover from stress, making it a super herb. An organic liquid extract is the most readily absorbed for those whose immune systems are already compromised.

Herbal Adaptogens

This Summer has been abnormally challenging in a physical sense for many people I know, my little self included. A somewhat unexpected flu knocked me out hard a couple weeks ago, and just now am I regaining equilibrium. Perhaps this is partially due to an increase of activities, without enough rest in between, and then there’s the obvious which we have all tried to brush under the rug at some point – stREsSs. I suddenly remembered recently not only that herbal adaptogens exist (duh!) but that I wrote this article about them umpteen years ago for an online magazine based in Hungaria, called Natural Elixir.

It inspired me to make a large pot of chicken soup, adding delicious vegetables, quinoa, and magical Reishi mushrooms. Along with a cup of Ginseng tea this soup was the most medicinal and nourishing thing I’ve eaten in several days! Thanks Heavens for herbal adaptogens, and to my herbalist friends who have supported me! I have been amazed all over again by the power of adaptogens, and hope that you will benefit from them too!

As a side note, you may notice a goofy poem at the bottom of the herbal article, about Rhodiola rosea, which is one of many that will be included in my upcoming book of Herbal Poetry, so stay tuned 🙂
