Understanding Planetary correspondence

In Clinical Alchemy we look to the Celestial bodies for keys to unlocking our dynamic nature and infinite self. Alchemy reveals the ways in which each planet can influence our bodily functions in physical, energetic and subtle ways. 



Sun

Within the body the Sun rules our vitality, self esteem, will power, life force, and personal identity.   

The Sun corresponds physically with the immune system, our heart, the amount of energy in the body, as well as overall vitality. Emotionally it relates to our self esteem, happiness and sense of inner strength. Spiritually the sun connects us with the higher power of creation in the universe. 


Sun plants help us with increasing our energy and mood, clearing negative vibrations while radiating the vibrant energy of the Sun through us. The Sun plants can be used to purify ourselves and ritual objects or simply to bring a renewed sense of spiritual purpose. In Alchemy they are used to dispel depression, clear our bodies energy channels, strengthen us both physically and emotionally to bring warmth and joy to our inner being. Some of my favorite Sun plants are Saffron, Frankincense, Ginseng, Propolis, chamomile, Cinnamon and Orange Blossom.
