A Master List of Things Ruled by the Planets, the Signs, and the Fixed Stars

This will be the ninth post in our series on astrological magic. Now I’m going to expand on the planets, signs, and fixed stars, and give you some information about the particular perfumes, plants, and materials which are influenced by specific celestial bodies. This will be a fairly extensive post, detailing many things which are under the influence of the various celestial powers, or which otherwise correspond to them. I will start with the planets, going in Chaldean order, which means I’ll be starting with Saturn. This post intends to be very useful, but in order to successfully draw power from the heavenly bodies and have their energy directed effectively to carry out your will, you should not use this post as the only reference for your methods. Be safe, and feel free to ask us if you have any questions.

Edible Landscape Update, July 9, 2014

I took these pictures this morning in my front and back yards. It's the time of year when winter vegetables set seed. The Leeks are flowering in the front garden. Their flower heads look like fireworks exploding. The Radicchio is setting beautiful blue flowers, their flower stalks are spindly and other wordily and so pretty! I love this plant in every stage of development. Celery seed is starting to dry on the plant, and fennel seed too. Both of these plants I grow primarily to use the seeds as spices. I love making celery salt, it’s one of my favorite flavors. And fennel seed is a delicious flavoring in home made sausage, even veggie sausage.

We’ve got green tomatoes on all of our plants; Cherokee Purple, Brandywine, Isis Candy, and Patio among others. I love summertime mostly because of tomatoes. We’ve been harvesting Sun Gold since last week. I gently pinch the center of the tomato flowers to get the plants to set more fruit. It works!

I planted Haricot Vert and Yellow wax beans at my friend’s house, who’s on vacation. We’ve been harvesting beans whenever we go there to water. She has patty pan squash, and Moon and Stars watermelon and Butternut squash trailing across her back yard garden. 

Our Tuscan Kale has been mulched with a layer of straw and is going strong in the summer heat. We also have Purple Ruffle Kale and Green Curly Kale. 

The Cripps Pink, aka “Pink Lady” apple tree has 2-4 little green apples on each branch. The grapes are setting fruit, and the passionflower vine is covered with passions fruits. I have no idea what to do with these, it’s my first time growing them. The blueberries are done, but the blackberries are starting to set flowers again. Our strawberries are doing great. I keep harvesting them in order for the plant to keep going. I look forward to this every day. 

There are three varieties of Eggplant in our garden; Rosa Bianca, Casper and Little Fingers, which is a very creepy name for a vegetable. All are doing well. They love the sunshine and heat.

 Purple Basil, Thai Basil, and Genovese Basil are growing strong. We made pesto from the Genovese the other night, it was delicious. 

Tarragon has gone wild, it’s huge! I’ll clip a few stems off and hang them to dry because there’s no way I’m going to use it all this summer.  

Today I’m planting out squash I started from seed, and more tomatoes in a new bed I made where a dying tree had to be cut down a few weeks ago. I’m sad to see the tree go, it was really big and shady, but happy to have more garden space.

Happy Gardening everyone!

Josephine: Welcome to Castle Skyhold, Headquarters of the Inquisition. I am Lady Josephine Montilyet. Breakfast is served between 5:30 and 6:15 AM.
Hawke: What if we sleep to a normal hour?
Josephine: May I take your breakfast orders? We have hardboiled eggs, homemade tomato slices with dry seed and leek jam, and your choice of Nevarran muffin.
Varric: …What the fuck is a Nevarran muffin?

I got my seeds! Leeks, sugar snap peas, patty pan squash, basil, zucchini, cucumber & broccoli. I will have to grow the basil indoors because it’s not quite warm enough here. The top set aren’t organic, but they are non-GMO, which works for me.

We already have artichokes & strawberries that come back on their own & raspberries in the front. Plus, rosemary, chives, tarragon, oregano & thyme in the herb garden. I am stoked :D
