What fun ! Where did you get this information ? I am a Sag. but based on herbs I rather be a LEO !
Thanks for the question. I visit herb shows and botanical gardens, and I have several friends who grow herbs. No matter what the astrological sign, people seem to gravitate toward herbs that grow best for them in that particular house. I keep notes as I visit herb shows and private gardens. The first question I’ll ask is “What’s your astrological sign?” Time after time, the herbs I have listed in the article are growing very robustly in the gardens. In each house there will be one or more herbs that respond to your birth sign. And, those herbs “speak to” this sign and grow well in this house. I’m a herb lover, I love the Earth, and spend most of my time outside. So, I would say I gathered this information by observing and asking questions for 30 years. Cheers to you.

I don’t see one for Scorpio.
Thank you for pointing this out ! I’ve added the herbs for Scorpio to the article.
I will have to add these to my own Zodiac Herbs list. I did spot some minor variations and differences, but the more, the merrier.
