he month of willow begins this week on April 15th and continues until May 12th. The Willow tree is deep with emotions and is known for its intense powers of divination. Its branches have great resilience and are capable of bending without breakage far more than most trees. The willow spreads its branches in a graceful manner, draping them towards the ground. As the winds blow, they sway to and fro in an almost melodic sense. It is said to sit beneath the branches of a willow tree helps to calm one’s energy. I can believe this as willows encircle the pond which sits near my back porch. Nothing is more soothing then to sit with a soft breeze and watch them as they slowly sway. They sing with a voice that only the willow has.
