Canon

According to the Word of the Titans, "Grand Abbie" is a title that indicates multiple mastery within Hippiemancy.

Proposed Canon

Given that Janis is "a Grand Abbie"Erf-b1-p141Same-site.PNG it would appear she is a master of Flower Power and at least one other discipline from Signamancy and Date-a-mancy.

Speculation

It is currently unclear if there a variety of titles for different multiple master-class casters (e.g. mastery of 2 vs 3 disciplines, or if "Grand Abbie" indicates explicitly the specific 2 disciples mastered).

"Headmaster" is known to be a title applied to two different casters with apparently different masteries (Thinkamancy/Lookamancy vs Thinkamancy/Findmancy?) so if "Grand Abbie" follows the same pattern, it would appear to mean mastery of either "at least two", "Flower Power/Signamancy" or "Flower Power/Date-a-mancy" within Hippiemancy.

Real World References

The 'Abbie' of the title probably refers to Abbie Hoffman, or possibly Abigail "Abby" O'Neil, from the TV sitcom Dharma & Greg.

The title is possibly a reference to the title of abbot/abbess.

Mother Abagail is the personification of good in Stephen King's novel The Stand.
