Celtic Tree Month - The Magical Attributes of Willow

agic is strong in the willow tree. The wood of a willow is an exceptional choice for wands or runes, especially if its purpose is for any form of moon magic. In fact Harry Potter's mother Lily possessed a wand which was crafted of Willow.  Just as you would place your divination tools (such as tarot, runes, crystal ball, etc) under the full moon to charge with its positive energy, you can likewise ask the willow to do the same during the month of the willow tree.

Simply place the object you wish to charge in a willow basket. This is best done on a Monday eve. Take the basket outside and place it beneath the willow. Just as you imagine the energy of the full moon coming down to enter and charge your items likewise imagine the willow doing the same filling your item with the power of the moon. When you retrieve your item from beneath the tree be sure and thank the tree for its gift and likewise leave a gift.

Willow is known as a guardian tree and possesses a healing aura. It is said to bless all who touch it. It is often used in love spells and rituals for raising moon energy. It is said to be useful in attempts to call the faeries as they are always said to be near the willows. Carry a small piece of willow with you to help aid in trusting your intuition.

Wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the letter. It was such a surprise. Still haven't found the paper, but a little note is on its way to you, my friend.

I have a Willow that grows right outside my home I have noticed that some of the branches have died and am thinking i may use these branches to cut a set of runes.. Antics of a Tamaran Witch and I have been discussing ways of doing this.. I thank you for these tree posts for the inspiration they have brought me..

I've never thought about charging items with plants, but it does make sense to me now that I think of it.
