Q: What is the ruling planet of guanabana? I have searched the internet, but can't find anything. Thought maybe you might know?
A: You couldn't find such information because, in fact, there is no such thing as "assigned" ruling planet for any specific tree, and in particular, for your Guanabana tree (Annona muricata).
Firstly, planets are not rulers in and of themselves. Planets may only be rulers within the context of a specific zodiacal sign to which they are connected. Therefore, in order to identify such a planet for the case of Annona Muricata, you must first determine which zodiac constellation is the star home for this plant.
Annona muricata is native to the Caribbean and Central America, which falls under the patronage of the Pisces constellation. The planets that rule the house for this constellation are the Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune, with Water being a key element of its essence. These planets can be considered the ruling planets for the guanabana plant.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the Solar System, is naturally strong and makes this plant even stronger. It was Jupiter that enabled Annona to spread to almost half of the world in tropical and subtropical climates, such as India. Guanabana is now widely cultivated world around.
Neptune, being a water planet, along with the element Water, plays a primary role in regulating the vital forces of the plant. These plants are well-adapted to areas with high humidity and relatively warm winters.
Water. It's important to note that the Annona muricata tree is not drought-tolerant and requires regular watering to survive. Overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot and other issues. The best way to determine when to water is by checking the soil moisture. If the top inch of soil is dry, it is time to water again. Watering should also be adjusted according to weather conditions and the growth stage of the tree.
Finally, the Moon also plays an important role in the case of guanabana. It's crucial to pay attention to the lunar calendar and follow all the advice and recommendations indicated in it. The magic of the Moon can undoubtedly help you and your exotic friend live a long and happy life.
