How to charge herbs for money oils, considering planetary & elemental influences

Magic performed to gain money is quite commonly practiced. However, few people actually need money—they need what money can buy.

Scott Cunningham – Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs

This video explains a non-hoodoo method of magick oil creation. This is the first step in oil creation, where you are thinking about the appropriate herb to use for your magickal goal, and charging this herb according to planetary influences. This is how you transform a herb from being a mundane plant, into a magical tool.

Here are a few ideas on how you can consider various influences on the herb in your oil creation process

Herbs you can use for money magick

These plants increase a person’s financial scene; they will not create dollar bills out of thin air. The money may come in the form of unexpected gifts or legacies, but usually it will manifest as a raise in pay, a better job, a good investment, a loan suddenly repaid to you, and so on.

In the video I discuss various influences on the plants. These influences are what creates the herbs properties.

Masculine & Feminine Influences

One consideration I did not mention in the video was the masculine and feminine properties of each herb. Cunningham describes the difference between masculine and feminine herbs:

Masculine herbs are those which are possessed of strong, fiery vibrations. These are the herbs which are actually used for protection, purification, hex-breaking, exorcism, lust, to maintain sexual potency, health, strength, courage, and so on, as well as any that strengthen the mind; feminine herbs are plants which are quieter, subtler, softer in their effects. Thus they are used to attract love, increase beauty, recapture youth, aid in healing and developing psychic powers, increase fertility……

The Ruling Planet of the Herb

The plant’s ruling planet is most important, and I use this as a major tool in my magick work and oil creation. Here is a quick list:

Sun:         Legal Matters, Healing, Protection

Moon:      Sleep, Prophetic Dreams, Fertility, Peace, Healing

Mercury:  Mental Powers, Divination, Psychic Powers, Wisdom

Venus:     Love, Friendship, Fidelity, Beauty, Youth

Mars:       Courage, Strength, Lust, Sexual Potency, Exorcism, Hex-Breaking, Protection

Jupiter:    Money, Prosperity, Legal Matters, Luck

Saturn:    Visions, Longevity, Exorcisms, Endings

The four elements

The four elements (Earth, Air, Fire, and Water) are within all herbs in varying amounts. Each, naturally, has its own use in magic:

Earth:      Money, Prosperity, Fertility, Healing, Employment

Air:          Mental Powers, Visions, Psychic Powers, Wisdom

Fire:         Lust, Courage, Strength, Exorcism, Protection, Health

Water:      Sleep, Meditation, Purification, Prophetic Dreams, Healing, Love, Friendships, Fidelity
