Magical Avalon – Isle of the Apples
Apple leaf jewellery made from reused silver, copper and bronze coins.
The Apple tree is very much a potent symbol of beauty, Eternity and rebirth. In Brythonic mythos it is associated with the otherworld in the form of Avalon. In the tale of Cormac’s Adventures in the land of Promise (Echtra Cormaic) we are told of a warrior called Manannán Mac Lir who had a branch made of silver from which hung three Golden apples. The branch, called the Craebh Ciui in Irish made sweet music which inspired joy and healed the sick.
Apples are one of the magickal trees part of the Celtic Ogham tree alphabet, its Ogham name being Quert. “The gifts of the Apple Fairy are everlasting youth and beauty, although sadly such matters often give rise to strife…. The apple fairy invites us to enjoy sensuous pleasures of all descriptions, in the knowledge that there is plenty to go around, and that nothing that is truly ours can ever be taken away from us.” ~ From The Fairy Bible, Teresa Moorey
The apple in general is a sweet super fruit whose cider and brandy transformations link it directly to the underworld! Love spells and offerings of Apples have long been tradition. There is an old Scottish custom of eating an apple on Samhain night whilst gazing into the mirror. Legend says that you will see your true love reflected there.”
