Herbalism & Magic: In medicinal herbalism, rosemary is used to improve memory and increase circulation.*
Rosemary has been used in magic for recovering memories and receiving answers to questions.

Astrology: Virgos are considered to be analytical, practical, meticulous, and have sharp wits.

Folklore: Crows are often associated with memory and cleverness in folklore and myth from several continents. In Norse mythology, Odin is accompanied by two crows named Huginn and Muninn, whose names mean “Thought and
Memory.” Many Native American traditions include the Raven as a “Trickster God” who is often outsmarting
others.

Zoology: Scientific studies have backed the crow’s reputation as a clever animal. Crows are smart enough to build tools and can remember a person’s face for over five years.

Geometry: The majority of Virgo occurs during the ninth month of September, so it contains a nine-pointed star made up of three triangles.
