As with the ancient Yew, the Yew fairy is likewise one of great wisdom. She is the oldest of all tree spirits and thus her powers are the same. Because she is said to carry such ancient wisdom, her message is often difficult to pass simply as mere words. It is in the form of visions that she communicates with whom she chooses.
In this manner she conveys a connection with the eternal as well as revealing an ancestral knowledge that may very well be long lost. In doing so she often connects those of todays with those of years passed. By being the conduit between two times, something that may have been lost over the years can once again be regained in the child of today.
