Astragalus not astrological

When I came across the word Astragalus I thought it would be related to astrology in some manner, like someone who spent to much time on horoscopes or perhaps someone who did not believe in horoscopes at all. In searching I discovered that it is an herb native to China, and has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. In the United States, the herb gained popularity in the 1980s.

This goes into the things I always wondered category...
