What´s the indications for a strong connection with the plant kingdom? A good Venus?
Yes, plants in general are ruled by Venus and Sun. Sun rules plants that "stay in the same place", Venus rules those that reproduce by extending their roots, (like grass), creepers.
We can group plants further by their human use:
Sun: nice wood that can be used for furniture
Saturn: ugly wood that are still useful, wood for DIY, for heating; everythibg dried or withered, also hay, tobacco etc
Moon: plants having syrup eg. Maple
Mars: edible but bitter tasted plants that we mainly eat for health reasons eg. Neem
Jupiter: fruits and nuts
Venus: plants that we have for their beautiful flowers like rose or magnolia
Mercury: everything else, plants that have no fruits but can still be eaten like spinach, salad, carrot, but also bamboo
This is all what I have found in my notes from graha sutras course. 🙂
Yes, thanks Agnes, but that ´s not quite my question, it´s rather about a person´s connection to the plant kingdom in general, like a person apt for botany or herbal medicine. Like a good Mars indicating a strong connection to the mineral kingdom (and that way being perceptive for gem energy etc).
Hm.. That would give us two types of botanists. I wonder about that, but maybe.
Thank you Agnes, I haven´t done the audio version of Rahu Sutras yet, so I didn´t know that.
