The Ash Tree

Akin to the mighty Yggdrasil watched over by Odin, the Ash tree serves as a channel of divination, wisdom, and prophecy. Its roots reach deep into the Underworld, while its branches stretch towards the heavens, bridging the realms of mortals and gods. 

A tree of all trades, the energy of the Ash tree buzzes with divine and cosmic connection. It’s a botanical bridge, linking realms and offering a hotline of wisdom. Ash is also revered for its connection to the fae, and its powers of knowledge and divination.

Legend has it that the Ash tree was the go-to for the big guy, Odin, to gather his daily dose of wisdom. The branches of the Ash tree rustle with the secrets of the universe, making it an all natural tool for divination. Picture ancient seers, chilling under its branches decoding messages from the divine like some ancient version of celestial texting. Ash is also sacred to the Celtic god Lugh, who is celebrated at Lughnasadh. Lugh and his warriors would carry spears made from Ash. It’s also the tree which Greek nymphs made their homes from.

So, how do you harness the power of this mighty tree of life? It’s like upgrading your magical toolkit with a cosmic WiFi booster. Ash wood is the main ingredient for wands and staffs, essentially your magical antennas for tuning into the cosmic frequencies. Carve yourself (or buy, I mean we don’t all have time to whip out the whittling nowadays) a wand, infusing it with intentions of divination and wisdom, and watch as the Ash tree’s energy elevates your magical game.
