Kitchen Witch: Cabbage

(Brassica spp.)

Planet: Moon

Element: Water

Energies: Protection, money


Superstitious persons once placed cabbage leaves on their foreheads on the dreaded Friday the 13th to keep evil far from them—and, most probably, to keep them far from everyone else.

Around 621 B.C.E., officials in Greece passed a law calling for the death penalty for anyone caught stealing cabbages, a favoured food.
Also, in Greece, the sad idea arose that eating several heads of cabbage every day would cure insanity and nervous conditions.

Magical uses:

Cabbage is fine lunar food. Serve it by the light of the Full Moon after magical and spiritual rituals. Like Brussel sprouts and broccoli, cabbage is eaten to internalize protection. Flavour it with basil and mustard for this purpose. Or, eat salty sauerkraut for
protection. Green cabbage is added to money-drawing diets. For this purpose, it is cooked with a solid silver coin. Or, flavour with dill seeds to attract prosperity. Cabbage soup is a tasty way to bring money energy into your life. The Roman naturalist Pliny recommended cabbage before sleep to prevent nightmares.
