Does Okra due to its green color have any known Magickal attributes?
Thanks for the great question. Okra is a wonderful food & unfortunately an
oversite not to include in my book The Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients.
You are correct in calling attention to the green color of Okra. Many green colored foods (including Okra) can be worked with to draw fertility/prosperity. Seeded plants (such as grapes) are also used in money rituals and Okra contains white seeds which makes it especially good for cleansing and removing financial obstacles. Okra is one of the main staples of "soul food" and was also known as slave food. Unfortunately we are all (rich and poor), slaves to the current global economic problems and all of us could use a good infusion of Okra into our diets.
Finally, as I mentioned, the amazing Okra also has some special "tantric" properties. Eat pickled okra to last longer in bed. Cook okra with stewed tomatoes on a full moon and feed to a lover to keep him/her faithful and to give a "sticktuitiveness" to the relationship. It can also be eaten after a miscarriage to insure that the next pregnancy will stick and the woman will safely carry to full term. In this case, the okra should be sliced so the seeds are exposed, lightly sauteed with olive oil or butter and sea salt and shared by the couple on a new moon.
Hail & Blessings to the Okra - a gift of Mother Earth infused with Magickal attributes!
