The Ogham Alphabet is a very ancient system of scripture, using native trees of Ireland combined to a series of lines crossing a vertical mark or an angle on a stone. Some of them are associated with the thirteen moons of the Celtic calendar. The willow is a water loving tree, associated with Moon magic and used for enchantment, wishing, romantic love, healing, protection, fertility, love, divination, friendship, joy, love, and peace. Linked with the element of water, it inspires emotions and feelings, imagination, and the connection with the Unconscious. Willow bark contains Salicin which is used in the treatment of rheumatic fever and various damp diseases. Her catkins, which appear in early spring before her leaves, attract bees to start the cycle of pollination. Willow indicates cycles, rhythms and the ebb and flux.Moon tree sacred to the White Lady, its groves were considered so magical that priests, priestesses and all types of artisans sat among these trees to gain eloquence, inspiration, skills and prophecies. For a wish to be granted, ask permission of the willow, explaining your desire. Select a pliable shoot and tie a loose knot in it while expressing what you want. When the wish isfulfilled. return and untie the knot. Remember to thank the willow and leave a gift.
