Brown butter. Sage. Gnocchi.

The Holy Trinity of seemingly bougie (but honestly really simple) foods.

Doesn't matter what anyone says, though: this little starchy dish is the perfect comfort food. Pillowy, soft gnocchi, slightly crisped up in sage-infused butter, all alongside some sweet and cinnamony root vegetables and crispy, delicious chicken? It's a meal that screams autumn, and it's one that we can get tucked into our recipe books just in time for Samhain.

If you're anything like me, having those on hand is a lot nicer than constantly trying to load or favorite blog pages (though I do appreciate you coming to my blog today).

Now, we've got some important ingredients in the classic sage brown butter gnocchi meal plate: the sage, cinnamon, thyme, and the onion, all powerhouses for courage, psychic power, strength, and protection. Let's take a look!

Magic in Purple Sage Brown Butter Gnocchi

If you thought I was done talking about color magic, I sure as hell am not. Did you know just how many variants of herbs there are out there? Look at lemon thyme, for instance: it actually smells like lemon, and it can therefore combine the powers of lemon and thyme into one item. Same goes with the variant of sage we're using today: purple sage, which combines the attributes of regular sage (like energy raising, wisdom, and protection) with the associations of the color purple (psychic power, wisdom, and royalty).

If you can't find purple sage, though, regular sage will still do you just as well, since it's associated with the element of air—an element often found in spiritual and psychic enhancing plants, spices, and other items. Look for air or Mercury if you're looking for psychic items!

And now, listen: if you wanted to round this out to include all elements' energy, it's as easy as calling on the potato in the gnocchi—but otherwise, here we have a great blend of elemental influences as you work to enhance your psychic skill! These plant allies will help you harness not only the strength and progress you're looking for in your spiritual journey, but the protection and courage to keep progressing, too. And with the sun, Venus, Jupiter, and Mars casting their influences, you know you're in for a beautiful time—one full of luck, expansion, and achievement.
