discover & prevent
the roots of disease
with Medical Astrology + Herbalism
Preventing disease before it takes root
As a holistic herbalist, you don’t just want the people you serve to be free from symptoms…
You want them to be vibrantly healthy.
Physically strong. Psychologically clear. Emotionally balanced. And spiritually evolving.
The paradigm of true holistic herbalism is based not just on treating disease, but preventing it by promoting health on all levels.
Unfortunately, most of modern herbalism is focused on allopathically treating symptoms.
Enhancing the Healing Power of Herbalism With the Precision of Medical Astrology
Most people don’t realize it, but astrology was once an integral part of western herbalism and the practice of medicine.
The medical branch of astrology gives you a detailed map of someone’s unique physiological landscape, predispositions towards disease, and how the health of the body is intricately woven into the mind, heart, and soul.
Medical astrology reveals what plants are best to treat the unique person, not their disease. It’s a map of disease prevention, potent herbal pharmacy, strategic formulation, and ultimately helps you to heal the whole person with the whole plant.
The synergy of medical astrology and clinical herbalism is the ultimate map for preventative, rejuvenative, and transformational healing.
online program from the School of Evolutionary Herbalism
The most comprehensive and in-depth integration of
clinical HERBALISM & MEDICAL ASTROLOGY
This is not some woo-woo astrology class with some herbs in there. Nor is it a just list of what remedies are “good for” your sun sign.
This is a deep integration of medical astrology and the fundamental principles of herbalism East and West, taught by an actual practitioner that uses Astro-Herbalism clinically.
By harnessing the precision of astrology with the potency of the plants, you’ll learn to see the deeper meaning behind disease, the essential healing properties of plants, and a practice where you can equally heal the body, psyche and soul.
THROUGHOUT EACH PLANET AND SIGN
The core curriculum of Astro-Herbalism is learning the 10 planetary bodies and the 12 signs of the zodiac, charting their holistic relationship to both people and plants on the physical, energetic and spiritual levels. This is not just lists of plants for planets, but a deep integration of clinical herbalism and medical astrology.

Astro-Herbalism is holistic in the truest sense of the word… You learn the wholeness of people and plants, and their relationship to the wholeness of the cosmos.
Below is a detailed outline of the lessons within each module and an outline of the topics covered throughout each planet and sign lesson. For more detailed explanation of what you learn throughout each sign and planet, see the tiles above.
Learn the foundational principles of medical astrology and holistic herbalism, and how they are uniquely connected for a synergistic understanding of both.

For both herbalists and astrologers
If you’re into herbalism, but don’t know the first thing about astrology… no problem! You don’t need an astrological background to take this course. We’ll give you a solid foundation to integrate astrology in your work with plants.
Likewise, if your an astrologer and you don’t know anything about herbs… you’ll see how you already understand the core principles of herbalism through astrology and learn to apply it in a whole new way to bring healing into your practice.
So if you’re new to astrology, herbalism, or both, fear not! This course will teach you everything you need to know. And if you’re advanced on either path, this program will provide new levels of insight and clarity that will refine and expand your practice to greater levels of efficacy, precision, and healing.
“Astro-Herbalism provided me with a practical answer and real application for supporting the path towards the resolution of emotional blocks with evident physical implications in my clients.
By combining the physical and emotional levels of healing through astrology and herbalism, the healing process is greatly accelerated.”
– Clara Guarnieri, Italy

Astro-Herbalism weaved everything together in a way that has completely changed my perspective about herbalism and made everything so easy to understand. This teaching is like an answer to my prayers for finding a way to deeply understand herbalism and get another way of thinking!”

“Astro-Herbalism is a tangible framework revealing how the astrological patterns are reflected in plants and people, adding multitudes of understanding to an otherwise complex and ethereal system.
I have become much more comfortable with the archetypes of the 7 planets and the 12 signs and am able to integrate that understanding into my day to day experience and developing healing modality.”
Jason Scott, Founder of Feral Fungi
“Astro-Herbalism is a practical and tangible way to integrate the teachings of astrology, which previously felt far away and mystical.
This program gave me the tools I needed to connect planets, people and the botanical world smoothly into my day to day life and practice.”
Sherri Marriash, founder of Wild Earth Medicinals
Revelstoke, British Colombia
“Even though I’ve been in practice for over a decade with nutrition, herbalism and functional medicine, this course has taken me to a much higher level of understanding all of those areas and more.
I am now very comfortable in practicing holistic healing in a way I always wanted to but did not have the courage or tools to do so before.
Using the birth chart has become an invaluable tool to decipher the complexities in my clients and I’m now comfortable with sharing and expanding in a larger way because now I know the importance of matching the plant to the person, not just offering the plants based on actions.”
April Shabazz, founder of The Herbal Releaf Apothecary
“Astro-Herbalism has given me a deeper connection to the plants I am growing, the medicine I am making and a greater understanding of how to administer healing medicine to my clients.
It has given me a strong foundation from which to build a special practice of growing, harvesting, and ritually hand-crafting herbal medicines.
My understanding of astrology has grown lending deeper insight into my own personal healing and evolution into my highest purpose.”
Alenka Loesch, Founder of Frux Farm

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Author of Evolutionary Herbalism: Science, Medicine & Spirituality from the Heart of Nature
Hey there! I'm Sajah, core instructor and founder here at the School of Evolutionary Herbalism. You're probably wondering who I am and what my qualifications are.
I received a BS in Herbal Sciences from Bastyr University 2008, which formed my foundation in herbalism: rooted in science but also central to my Earth-centered spirituality. From there I received clinical training through studying and shadowing some of the best herbalists.
For the past decade of teaching thousands of folks from around the world through our school, my goal has been to have a truly holistic approach to people and plants, one that honors the physical, energetic and spiritual aspects of life. I strive to support people in transforming their lives, to not just be symptom free— but physically vital, mentally inspired, emotionally uplifted, and growing into their life purpose. The plants are at the root of this transformational healing, for that's what they have provided to me.
I hope to be able to share a little bit of the medicine I have gathered along my plant path with you.

The level of detail within each organ system is profound and the synergy of Western Herbalism, Ayurveda, Medical Astrology, and Alchemy points the highly unique synthesis of these teachings.
