Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa)
That ‘End of the road’ despair, where there seems no hope or help in sight. Courageous, strong individuals who face their stark suffering alone, holding on in spite of the distress that seems to corrode the soul. A feeling of utter aloneness and emptiness, so much that the very anguish isolates one. For all their strength and courage, people who have reached breaking point.
Vervain (Verbena officinalis)
Intense and over–enthusiastic people who use more force than necessary in performing any task because their sights are on what has to be done in the future. These are people who are fanatical, highly strung and like a wound spring, tiring themselves and others by their over–energetic and compulsive nature. Fixed ideas want to convert everyone to their beliefs. People who love a cause to fixate their energies on. Strain and tension from pushing too hard in all spheres – physically end up with stiffness and pains and insomnia. Likely to have a breakdown from driving themselves too hard.
Vine (Vitis vinifera)
People who like to lay down the law. A lust for power and control, a driving desire to bend everyone to their will. Certain that their opinions and beliefs are right. Ruthless and domineering, authoritative and tyrannical in their dealings with others. Inflexible in that they really believe they are the final authorities on anything they choose to propound on. These are efficient and capable people, particularly good in emergencies, when their penchant for taking control is best utilized. Physically may develop migraines and High Blood Pressure.
