Sage is a popular garden herb with a sweet and savory aroma. Sage grows well in most temperate climates. Its velvety leaves release their fragrance when rubbed.

Sage was used medicinally in Egyptian, Roman, and Greek medicine. It is now best-known as a culinary herb for the dishes of Autumn, from roast turkey to sausage stuffing to pumpkin soup. An Old World herb, Sage was brought to the Americas by colonists for use in their gardens and kitchens.

This article refers to Common Sage, Dalmatian Sage or Garden Sage, Salvia officinalis. It is distinct from the White Sage (Salvia apiana) commonly used for smudging. However, both plants have a solid magickal pedigree, and many of their correspondences are similar.

Magickal Uses of Sage

In Roman times, Sage was sacred to Jove and was gathered with great ceremony. The genus name Salvia is related to the Latin word salvere, meaning to heal, preserve or redeem. Sage was associated in European traditions with wisdom, long life, and even immortality. An Italian proverb states, “Why should a man die when he has Sage in his garden?”

Sage is used to promote wisdom and bring in good luck. It builds emotional strength and may help to heal grief. Magickally, Sage is associated with protection and the granting of wishes. It appears in countless spells of kitchen witchery, especially those stemming from European traditions.

Correspondences of Sage

Sage’s reputation for wisdom, protection, and good luck cast it squarely into the bounds of Jupiter. Like that most paternal of planets, Sage’s energy brings prosperity and guards over the home. The leaves even contain trace amounts of tin—a Jupiter metal.

However, it should be noted that some writers list it with Moon herbs. Sage often has a white or blue-gray cast and is associated with the wisdom of the Crone.

The usual elemental tag for this fresh-smelling herb is Air. However, given Sage’s loyalty to hearth and home and links to manifestation magick, an alternative correspondence could be Earth.

Spells and Formulas with Sage

Write a wish on Sage leaf and burn it to release your intention. Alternatively, place the leaf under your pillow at night to dream of how your goal will be achieved.

Carry a Sage leaf in your wallet to attract money.

Burn Sage incense when seeking knowledge or guidance on a difficult decision.

Add Sage oil, incense, or herbs to any spell to temper the results with wisdom.

People who prefer not to use White Sage, either because of allergies or cultural sensitivity, may use Common Sage instead.

If you eat Sage leaves every day in May, you will be granted immortality. (Hint: Not really.)

Correspondences: Jupiter, Air/Earth
