Ivy

Gaelic Name: Eidheann

Botanical Name: Hedera helix

Ivy represents:

Prophecy

Connection

Death

Rebirth



"Ivy has, since classical times, been associated with prophetic intoxication, sought by the Druids particularly for creativity so that their work is inspired by something greater than their own personalities alone."

Ivy is here to tell you inspiration is coming to you.

Still your mind, resolve any conflicts, and let Ivy guide you.

"The best way out is always through."
~ Robert Frost

I love that this card also has the Ogham symbol for Ivy on it. I took an Ogham class back in 2002 and I've always felt a special connection to the ancient language of trees.

In Ogham, the ancient Celtic tree alphabet, Ivy is called Gort.

Gort stands for
prosperity, abundance, and new lessons to be learned.

It is the completion of one phase and 
the beginning of something fresh and new.

Color ~ green
Stone ~ aventurine, malachite
Animal ~ cow

Ivy gets us moving towards our goals.

********************************************
I feel this card is highly appropriate for me at this time.
I've been digging in deep with my
Magick Muse business plan.
I'm super excited and pumped to get things going.
