I am sure Frater Albertus work is known by some of you, but I thought these tables could be of interest...

The following is a condensed tabulation of herbs listed according to the planetary influence which affects each of them, as claimed by ancient tradition. In order that this list be of benefit, each student must discover individually how true these planetary attributions are for these various herbs. It would seem that even a deeper study is necessary in order to discover the underlying causes of the different ways in which the medicinal virtues operate. - source (http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~panopus/handbook/alchemhandbk.htm#Top)


The following tabulation, according to Paracelsus (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=10), of organs of the body and the respective planets that rule them will be of assistance for further analysis:

The Sun rules the heart.
The Moon rules the brain.
Venus rules the veins.
Saturn rules the spleen.
Mercury rules the liver.
Jupiter rules the lungs (chest).
Mars rules the gall. - source (http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~panopus/handbook/alchemhandbk.htm#Top)

Thanks for that chart. I'll use it in conjunction with Junius' and Stavish's!
I've completed my Horsetail elixir, and I'm allowing it to sit and integrate its Mercury-Sulphur-Salt. I would love to experience real positive physical effects on certain bodily rigidity, especially the ligaments of my hips which contribute to the 'White Man Can't Dance Syndrome.'.

Began a Damiana tinture a couple of weeks ago. Didn't think to wait and use it as a Venus Operation Spagyric Elixir, because I plan on going sequentially, as in the AZOTH pictogram. That means weeks working on Jupiter and Mars (reminds me of a song from Romper Room when I was a babe). So, now I'm thinking of incinerating the faeces, Calcining, and adding Salt to the tincture anyway. What thinkest thou? The Damiana aphrodisiac is something I made years ago and tried with my Lady, with some warmth and stimulation that moved below the navel. Unfortunately, it spoiled somehow.

Hemp is missing for some reason...

I remember reading that it corresponds to Saturn, but to me it feels rather Solar, with strong Neptunian tendencies :cool:
