Angelica (Angelica Archangelica), is an herb said to be sacred to the Archangels. It blooms around the time of the Feast day of St Michael the Archangel, for which it is named.
Legend says that during the Middle Ages, the Archangel Michael came to a monk in a vision and told him angelica could ward off the plague, evil, and just about everything else! Soon everyone carried a sprig on their person and Doctors would place the root under their tongue. (There is no evidence of how well this worked and we recommend you follow modern science for disease prevention.)
While this plant looks sweet and dainty, it is actually quite fiery. Just like Archangel Michael is the Angel of Fire, this herb corresponds to fire and the sun. A yang herb, it corresponds to Leo, the planet Jupiter, the solar chakra, and the zodiac sign Leo. It falls under the Kabbalah sephira of Netzach. And it is also sacred to Venus, the goddess of love and beauty.
It has many uses for your spiritual practice including angelic magick, banishing, protection, exorcism, healing, hex breaking, attracting love, moral courage, gambling talisman, visions, communication, and connecting to angelic and faery realms.
A simple way to tap into these fiery energies is to create your own Angel Mojo Bag. Carried on your person this Mojo Bag can shield you from those sketchy low vibes of people and locations draining your energy and keep hexes at bay!
