Herblore: Daisy

Daisy

Daisies have many meanings, but the most widely recognized is youthful love and innocence.  Roman mythology tells us that daisies were created when the nymph Belides caught the eye of Vertumnus, the god of the orchards as she was dancing at the edge of the forest.  To escape his unwanted attention, she transformed into the flower bellis, the daisy’s botanical name.

They are often, especially on Beltane or May Day, woven into beautifully simple crowns for the girls and ladies to wear.

When used for spiritual or metaphysical purposes, the daisy brings increased awareness, creativity, and inner strength.  When we embrace our creativity, we can accomplish and create anything.  Never underestimate the power of your creative thoughts, for in them, lie your dreams.

Welcome to our new website!

We are going to be filling out this website with all kinds of information, recipes, spells, and everything else you can imagine!  If you’d like to add something, send us a note!  We’d like to have many voices filling the halls here.

The forums will be up soon, and we will be populating that with anything and everything we can, from simple rituals to complex ones, and beyond.  We’ll be setting up a place for “newbies” to the path to ask questions, get answers, and find their way through the myriad of paths that are open to them as Pagans.

Everyone is welcome.  We ask that you maintain a level of decorum on this page and the forums, as people of all ages, from tweens to adults.  Please keep everything civil.

Many blessings and many thanks!
