Herbalism & Magic: Yarrow has been used in love magic, and newlywed couples would plant it in front of their homes to ensure seven years of happy marriage. Yarrow has been used in medicinal herbalism to treat wounds, reduce fevers, and stop bleeding.*

Astrology: Libras are considered to be equitable, diplomatic, peaceable, and good at compromise.

Zoology: Mourning doves mate for life and will seek out the same partner every year during mating season. Male and female parents collaborate in finding a nest site, building their nests, and hatching their eggs. Some bird species use yarrow to build their nests as it repels fleas and other parasites. Doves are often used as symbols of peace and love.

Geometry: The majority of Libra occurs during October, which is the tenth month of our calendar. The design contains two pentagons that combine together to make a ten-pointed star.
