Like the astrological sun sign trees, planetary trees can be used as a focus for different energies and often overlap with the sun sign trees. They can be used to strengthen the sun sign trees and if you pick both a sun sign tree and the tree of its ruling planet you can double the power.For example if you needed a sudden burst of inspiration, you would pick the twig of a walnut or olive tree for the planet tree of the sun and combine it with the birth sign ruled by the sun, fiery Leo, using an orange or laurel tree to reinforce. Just as flowers can be combined for different energies, you can collect an assortment of twigs as a focus, and you can weave them together as an amulet.
You can also select planetary energies and use them with other birth sign trees of the Zodiac. For example, you might need to strengthen your resolve if others are attacking your principles. A Mars-influenced tree such as a juniper, combined with an Aquarian tree, such as the flowering cherry, would make you more assertive and vigorous in standing your ground.
