As well as it being New Moon today we have also (on the 18th) moved into the time of the Ash tree. You might choose to work with Ash during this lunar month (until 17th March).
What a beautiful tree the Ash is. It is may be used for protection and also to give one courage. As more and more feel called to step up to the mark, to step forward onto their true path, so it is that courage is often needed. Courage to put aside fears, both inner and of outer perceptions such as worrying what others think. Hands up who’s been there?
Ash is also a tree of healing and may be useful in cases of rheumatism and arthritic conditions as well as being a diuretic. It’s know for it’s anti-inflammatory properties too.
The Ash is associated with Gwydion who is a magician, hero and also a trickster, mentioned in the Welsh Mabinogi. I won’t say too much about him here, as I may well do a little post about him at another time.
You might want to work with crystals too. Those associated with the Ash are Turquoise and Lepidolite but any white or pale blue that you feel drawn too, can work too. It’s your intention that matters.
If courage, healing or protection are part of your personal wishes today, I hope this post helps.
