A couple of years ago – gosh doesn’t time fly! – I attended channelling with Shirley Battie. If you have attended any of Shirley’s channelling, then you will know that she has an Oxalis plant on her window sill. One evening when we were channelling, her Oxalis started moving about and yet there was not a window open or a breath of air. We all took that as confirmation of what we were asking at the time. A few weeks later, Shirley was splitting her Oxalis plant and she gave me a baby plant. It has grown so much that I thought I would try splitting a bit off for my sister in law, Jane, who has been admiring it. I just love to know the magickal properties of plants, especially the ones that I have been given, as I take that as a sign. So I thought it was about time I did some research and this is what I have found:
“From Gardensablaze comes this:
Oxalis is bound to Venus and Earth. Venus is the planet of love, and earth signifies home and hearth. As an herb that stays close to the soil, spreading and running deep roots in its territory, Oxalis is a moderately powerful magical herb that can be used in rituals and spells for home, hearth, family, and wellness. Put a glass of water by the bedside with leaves and flowers for speedier recovery for yourself or ill family members. The leaves and flowers close at night, promoting restful sleep. Place a few flowers at the foot of baby’s bed for comfort and relief from colic or discomfort, and restful sleep. Add tasty lemony leaves to meals for family members to promote togetherness and love. Dry leaves and ground to powder for sprinkling around the house for affection and family togetherness. Add to similar herbs for more powerful effect in any spell or ritual.
Magia D’La Luna writes this:
Oxalis is an herb of of fortune ruled by Venus. Oxalis has long represented good fortune. This herb was part of the myths surrounding the Celtic Sun wheel. The simplest method of adding luck to one’s life is to grow Oxalis in one’s garden, or pot it and grow it as a houseplant. Oxalis flowers and leaves may be added to sachets and charms for luck. The dried leaves and flowers may be burned as incense during spells to increase your fortune.”
Already the baby plant is producing a flower. You can just see it in the right hand corner.
Well I shall certainly be using the flowers and the leaves in my spells and rituals. If anyone would like a baby Oxalis, let me know and I will pot one up for you.
