When something is said to be masculine in nature or to present masculine energy in the metaphysical sense, it is being described as an active, forward-moving energy. It is aggressive; it doesn’t just accept what comes but imposes its will.


Masculine energy, often associated with forward-moving energy, embodies characteristics such as assertiveness, action, and leadership, making it a vital component in witchcraft and energy work.

Symbolically, masculine energy can be represented by the Sun, the element of Fire, and the color red, all signifying strength, vitality, and courage in magical practices.

Specific herbs like cinnamon, ginger, and thyme are aligned with masculine energy, and they can be used in spells and rituals to enhance courage, protection, and motivation.

Crystals and minerals such as red jasper, carnelian, and hematite carry masculine energy properties, serving as potent tools for grounding, boosting confidence, and increasing one’s vitality in the world of witchcraft.

Symbolic Meaning

Masculine energy tends to focus more on the spiritual or mental aspects of things. The bright white Yang symbolizes masculine energy in the Yin-Yang polarity.

In Astrology, the fire and air signs are considered masculine.

In magick, masculine energy and in some cases the male image represents the ego, the conscious, logical mind.

In herbal lore, masculine energy usually refers to the action of the herb. Those herbs that have active, penetrating action are classified as masculine.

Sometimes, however, herbs are categorized according to their appearance so an herb that is phallic in shape may be classified as masculine, regardless of its action.
