A powerful dispeller of enemies and evil things, it has a close correlation with the fiery Gods Mars and Ares. Linked by its properties to the Archangel Michael and the Fire signs of the zodiac (Aries, Sagittarius, Leo), ther is also a special association to the astrological sign of Scorpio.
This herb relates to all things that are martial and secretive, such as covert military, political or police operations, etc. It captures the general idea of conquering, vanquishing and defeating one’s opponent. That holds true, whether the opponent is an illness, a person or group, poverty, a competitor, etc.
On the field of battle or in the operating room (Basil has natural antiseptic qualities), when charged with an intention, the Spirit of Basil will wake up and work for the conjurer and do the deed that needs doing. Because it is useful in sports and gaming competition, Basil is useful when sitting at the chessboard or standing on the tennis court.
It’s also a really tasty and essential ingredient in Italian dishes! Ocimum basilicum (its Latin, taxonomical name) grows easily in most home gardens, a testament to its sturdy, robust nature and ability to thrive. It was once only known to grow in Persia and India but has now spread its empire over many regions of the globe.
