Ash

3rd Moon of the Celtic Year – (Feb 18 – March 17) (The Enchanter) – Free thinker, imaginative, psychic, artistic, loner. The Ash was one of the Sacred Druidic three: (The Oak, Ash & Thorn), The Ash has associations with sea power, ocean rituals, karmic laws, magical potency, healing, protection from drowning, love, rain making, women’s mysteries, prophetic dreams, general protection, prosperity, and health.

The Ash tree was believed to be the first tree ever created. The “world ash tree” is called Yggdrasil. The Ash tree is the Queen of the Forest, while the Oak is King. With deep penetrating roots that reach to the “heart of the earth”, the great tree holds together the three worlds of heaven-earth-underworld. Ash symbolizes the most ambitious and grandest of visions.

In the Norse eddas, Yggdrasil, the world tree, was an Ash. The spear of Odin was made from the branch of this tree, which is also known by the Celtic name Nion, pronounced knee-un. This is one of three trees sacred to the Druids (Ash, Oak and Thorn), and this is a good month to do magic that focuses on the inner self. Associated with ocean rituals, magical potency, prophetic dreams and spiritual journeys, the Ash can be used for making magical (and mundane) tools — these are said to be more productive than tools made from other wood. If you place Ash berries in a cradle, it protects the child from being taken away as a changeling by mischievous Fae.
