In Indian astrology or Vedic culture of astrology, several plants and trees have medicinal usage and spiritual significance. These plants have the power to overcome the malefic influence of the planets and get blessings from the gods to lead a blissful and prosperous life. In Hindu rituals, the plants and trees are most helpful in increasing serenity and getting positivity from the cosmic powers, according to a best astrologer online.
Durva, the sacred grass
According to astrologers, every puja is incomplete without offering the ‘Durva’ to the deity. Durva is considered the second sacred plant after Tulsi. The word Durva has come from duhu and avam. Durva is believed to have the highest ability to attract Ganesha’s aura, and it is also the most important offering to Lord Ganesha. In addition, the plant’s tender shoots have the highest capacity to absorb principles of deities present in the dewdrops that fall on the leaves. Therefore, astrologers often consider offering Durva grass to the Gods to seek blessings from them.
Tulsi or Holy Basil is a significant plant with great medicinal and astrological value. Tulsi has been personified in the Vedas and is also known as Vaishnavi. Tulsi is symbolic of the goddess on earth in the form of a plant. The plant has the potential to decrease the influence of the malefic nature of the planets. Vedic astrology has given importance to this plant to get blessings from the divine.
Moreover, the Tulsi plant is also rich in medicinal value. Ayurveda recommends the use of its leaves to cure several diseases. For example, it is recommended to cure cough and throat infections and several diseases. It is also a significant plant, according to Vastu experts, to create a positive environment in your house.
Ashwatha vriksha or Peepal tree
The peepal tree is taken as one of the auspicious trees in Vedic astrology. The peepal tree has been worshipped since ancient days. This tree is considered the essence of the Trimurthis, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. The root of the Peepal tree is considered Brahma, the creator, while the trunk is symbolic of Vishnu, the protector. The top part of the tree is symbolic of Lord Shiva, the destroyer. This tree is also known as the Kalpavriksha or the tree that fulfills our wishes. Vedic astrology believes that a childless couple may worship this tree to overcome infertility. Unmarried girls can also worship this tree to get married. The shadow of this tree is believed to impact our brain activities and motivates our souls towards positivity.
Mango is the king of Fruits and is also the symbol of love and affection. The leaves of a mango tree are helpful in all Hindu religious ceremonies. Astrologers suggest keeping a “Purnakumbha” or a pot filled with water, with fresh mango leaves and coconut on the top for several astrological issues. The process is known as “sthapana,” or the beginning of the puja. The pot is similar to Mother Earth, and water is considered the essence of life. On the other hand, coconut is symbolic of divine consciousness, and the mango leaves are similar to life.
The whole “Purnakumbha” is associated with Goddess Lakshmi and good fortune. The mango leaves are serially tied using a thread and are kept on the entrance. The chain is considered a sign of prosperity and is tied during every auspicious occasion. It is also believed that mango leaves have the power to decrease the negativity of the surrounding.
According to the astrology consultation, the tree is symbolic of Jupiter or Brihaspati. The belief is undoubtedly prevalent, and the individuals who can’t afford yellow sapphire gemstones are suggested to wear the tree’s roots. In addition, planting a banana tree at home and worshipping it regularly can attract good luck and prosperity, according to astrologers.
In every Hindu marriage, there is a custom to decorate the entrance of the marriage hall and the couple’s house with two banana trees. The tree symbolizes a happy married life and endless love in the relationship. To gain prosperity and finances, we offer banana leaves and fruits to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi.
The Indian bael tree is one of the most significant trees with religious and medicinal importance. The tree also has a spiritual significance in the minds of people. Some of the bael trees have three leaves together, and some bael trees have five leaves together. Both are considered auspicious, according to astrologers. Offering water daily to this tree is believed to attract good luck and wealth. Offering water daily on the tree helps to eliminate the Pitru Dosha and Kalsharpa Dosha in the horoscope, according to an astrologer chat online.
