Aroma Astrology

astrology sign birth date

Take it with whatever grain of salt you prefer, if you're aware of your astrological sign (or entire birth chart), it probably aligns in some degree with your personality. From the bullheaded stubbornness of a Taurus, the dreamy + sometimes directionless Pisces or the bold energy that fills a room when a Leo walks in, there is no doubt your zodiac blueprint can accurately represent a part of us.

Personalities, habits + traits are not the only things Astrology can unveil. Parts of the body where you carry strength, where you are prone to injury or illness, what herbs you are most aligned with, best colors to wear, your karmic lessons + aromas in the form of essential oils can all be navigated by a deep dive into your birth chart. My favorite local go-to is Susan Hughes at the Aquarian Bookshop or simply plugging in your info for free here.

Speaking of zodiac magic, I'm brainstorming a way to bring this information together in the near future in physical form, but until then, I've listed some information on each Astrological sun sign (that's your "common" sign, your overall traits + quirks) + the oils that correlate.
