The Ginseng root has been revered since ancient times by many cultures for its numerous healing and rejuvenating properties. In Chinese medicine, Ginseng is an ingredient in just about every remedy and is considered the ‘The King of Herbs.’ In astrology, it is signified by the Sun for its energizing, stabilizing, and anti-microbial properties, as the Sun energizes and stabilizes our planet while being the best disinfectant against viruses and other microbes.
Whereas Asian ginseng is used for its heating (Yang) properties, Wisconsin Ginseng has a more cooling (Yin) nature, as the Sun is modified by the cooling, reflective influence of the Moon. We see this dance of yin and yang in everything from the seasons to the phases of the Moon to the passage of the Sun through the zodiac.
The ginseng root resembles the form of a human and in particular the legs, fitting because it is believed to provide the potency to be on one’s legs. On a larger scale, we see this human form depicted in the 12 signs of the zodiac, from Aries to Pisces, or from head to toe.
