Gender: Feminine
Planet: Venus
Element: Earth
Powers: Abundance, Fertility, Money, Rebirth
Magical Uses and History: Wheat is the most sacred of the Seven Sacred Grains as it represented fruitfulness, bounty, and rebirth in its ability to replenish itself and its golden color. In ancient Egypt and Babylonia, wheat was often used in funeral rites to represent the rebirth of the deceased in the afterlife.

In ancient Greece, crowns of wheat were placed on the heads of brides and grooms as a symbol of fertility. Carried or eaten it is thought to increase fertility and conception.

Sheaves of wheat placed in the home, like my Wheat Wreath, attract money and abundance.  

Wheat can be used in a number of spells including:
     Fertility Magic
     Money Spells

However, wheat is often used as the grain of choice for breads baked on Lammas or "loaf mass." Having a successful wheat harvest meant our ancestors could bake and store bread through the cold winter months. The lore surrounding bread magic is vast and best explained in another post.

  1. Hey! I'm just here to let you know about the mistake in this paper and how it says, "Honeysuckle can be used in a number of spells including:". And I'm just confused about that because this is a wheat paper and not a honeysuckle paper. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for the heads up! The information is correct, just a simple typo. Fixed now and I'll update the file attached.

  2. Thanks, Willow. I had a dream last night about "feeling" the growth of field grains and going out to see what more I could learn about them, came to your site. Am so pleased, I did!!!

    1. That's awesome! I wish I could have provided more information on wheat for you, but its one of those plants with lots of conflicting information because its been known by so many names!
