Ginger is used to invoking the powers of fire. Ginger is a catalyst, a force of fire. It is also believed to conjure the powers of Mars and the Sun and raise the Chi. The use of this magic root in baked goods is preferred to replenish our magical energy. It is also used to prepare food as a libation to Sun and Fire entities and deities. Meditate on your desire (love, protection, magical powers, healing etch) and start chewing it. Keep on visualizing your desire. Finally, spit it.
It is used as a ‘magical catalyst‘ (like cinnamon) to ‘speed things up.’ The Root is used extensively as a tool to bring forth prosperity and banish poverty. When chewed, drank, or eaten, it is believed to help us raise more magical energy. Because of the correspondence with fire, ginger is thought to be a potent aphrodisiac.
