|Willow has a wild array of medicinal and magical powers. The tree of the Moon Goddess, willow has been favored by Witches for centuries, used to make magical wands and for witching or dowsing for water. Willow protects against evil and can avert danger. It aids healing, protection, and fertility spells and can enhance intuition and sacred knowledge. If asked nicely, willow will also grant wishes. While willow is growing rapidly, filled with excited water energy, harvest some for your own magical use. Sit under a willow tree and cast a protective circle. Meditate, connecting with willow energy, Moon Goddess intuition, and water-finding abilities. Ask for permission to remove an 18 to 36 inch tapering branch filled with witching magic. Holding the willow mindfully in both hands, chant:
"A witching wand for this Witch,
Finding water I am witch,
A magic wand for working good,
I am blessed by willow wood."
