Dried Hawthorn Berries - The Hawthorn Tree is associated with Faerie Magick, and is known to be a portal to the magickal and mythical otherworld where Faeries dwell. The Hawthorn tree is also known as the "May Tree", and is the 6th month of the Celtic Tree Calendar. Maypoles were crafted from this magickal tree, and it's leaves, flowers, and berries all have magickal and healing properties.
Hawthorn: The Hawthorn card represents cleansing and chastity, bringing protection from the inner magical realms - in other words, a period of restraint, waiting or keeping oneself to oneself. Concentrate on mental rather than physical activity as a prelude to the spiritual fertilization, growth and harvesting what will follow, providing such preparation has been properly made as the pure white flowers of the Hawthorn turn to glowing red haws in the autumn.
