Crabgrass in Magick


Article by J.C.

Herb name: Crabgrass
Family name: Grass
Element: Air
Gender: Male
Planetary attribution: Uranus
Deities: Osiris, Ares, Jupiter, "God"
Scientific name: Digitaria
Etymology: the root word "crab" once had a meaning of "malignant and cancerous"; this meaning is now obsolete.



Crabgrass, it's a weed (well most varieties are), and a weed by any other name is still a weed. But can a weed--or more specifically, can crabgrass, be used in magick?  Yes it can!  And it may seem bizarre to use a weed in magick, but imagine if it could be harvested and sold for big bucks, then everyone would soon be made aware of its magickal and metaphysical properties...

This information was brought to my attention by an entity that came to me. He said that when one desires to meet a certain goal and needs to put themselves ahead of the pack in order to do so,  this is an herb of choice. Not only that, it has another major magickal power--for those that struggle due to being unique in the way that they are--that they are not like sheep and are more like goats or black sheep, this herb is a power herb for them. Being unique is part of their power, and this herb will help them harness their powers and be more at peace in a world not entirely ready for them.

Crabgrass is a beneficial herb for global and societal improvement magick. Thus when one is doing magick to move away from corruption, poor economy, for governmental change, or for humanitarian reasons... this herb should be on their list of tools.

Da'ath and Void Magick

Furthermore, magick related to the sphere of Da'ath will also be enhanced by crabgrass. Why? Because crabgrass exists one season, and into the next season there is a large vacancy (void) left where it was. It is that very void that allows it to thrive in that next season. Though Da'ath is technically not a void, it can easily be symbolically represented by one. *And of course to cross the Abyss one must deal with Da'ath, which is not the Abyss but is in it. So then, metaphorically speaking, Da'ath is crabgrass within the void patch of the Abyss. 

Weeds are only weeds when they are interfering or encroaching. Knowledge is the same way, and without being understood it is absolutely useless. But with understanding, knowledge is powerful indeed. Those who judiciously apply their knowledge and wisdom, are the truly powerful--again metaphorically like crabgrass in a sense, but in a positive light this time (thank you to Adam K, for sharing this wise observation [from point of asterisk]). Along this same vein, crabgrass heightens disintegration magick, and also banishing magick, and any magick relative to a void, or creating one in any way.

How to use it: the simplest way, is to get a tealight burner with adjustable-height tray. Cut your harvested crabgrass small and burn it in the tray. You can of course also use an electric incense burner, can burn it loose atop charcoal, or can make your own incense from it if that rings your bell. You can even burn it atop lit incense cones. Alternatively you can make an oil of crabgrass and anoint candles, or burn it as an oil on charcoal. Just keep in mind that burning it loose or as an oil, it should be combined with more fragrant but complementary herbs or resins. Cinnamon is but one good choice, dragon's blood is another. In banishing magick, combine it with asafoetida, for a most powerful combination.

Meditations: you can meditate with crabgrass too, on these same general topics.
