The spirit of valerian feels so consistent with Virgo to me.
The root of the valerian plant is often used in both magick and medicine. It’s vibrant earth energy stored and utilized for protection sachets or spread around a ritual space to cleanse and purify the space.
In herbal healing preparations, valerian root is a popular and powerful, slightly warming, nervine and has been used to potentially ease pain, nervous system conditions and insomnia.
Some people do experience the opposite and find valerian root stimulating instead of relaxing, which is exactly why it’s a great idea to consult with a trusted herbalist, naturopath, etc before giving it a shot!
