In my crystals for prosperity post, I explained that I like to use planetary and color correspondences to help me choose the crystals I use in my money workings. For example, I like looking for stones that are green, yellow or gold, and royal blue and that correspond to Venus, the Sun, and Jupiter. Those same techniques are helpful when deciding which herbs to work with, but a few more factors should be considered.
A big clue that can help you choose herbs to work with to grow your wealth is whether or not the plant itself is abundant. Does that plant seem to be everywhere? If you find that plant in your yard or garden, does it spread all over the place super quickly? Does the plant create tons of seeds, berries, or fruit…an abundance of them? Then that’s a good indication that it might be a good herb for prosperity magick.
Another factor that is super helpful when choosing herbs for prosperity is figuring out what element the plant relates to.
Does the plant grow underground, smell a bit like soil, or seem really grounding to you? Then it’s probably an Earth plant. We mainly want to work with these plants for our prosperity magick. Earth magick is all about material things and our bodies here on earth, like money, prosperity, healing, and fertility, so Earthy plants are perfect for wealth workings.
But you may also want to add some herbs related to other elements. For example, fiery plants help us with courage, strength, protection, action, and banishing negativity. These are all intentions we may want to add to our money magick. Fire plants are usually spiky, spicy, “hot,” or even poisonous, which makes them pretty easy to identify.
Water and Air plants may also help with our specific money needs and intentions. Watery plants are usually moist or juicy, grow in water, or bloom at night (when the moon is out…moon = water element). These can aid in purifying any bad vibes or beliefs we have about money. They can also help us heal from past experiences that negatively affect our feelings about wealth.
Air plants can help us with intentions of the mind, like concentration, focus, and decision-making, for example. These plants are often fragrant or bendy plants that sway in the wind. Airy plants can help us make better choices with our money and focus on our financial goals.
Of course, these generalizations won’t fit EVERY plant, but it’s somewhere to start. If you’re unsure, double-check trusted sources that list herbal and essential oil correspondences (I’ve listed some at the end of this article). This will help you get a better understanding of the energies of each plant.
