The apple is a very magical fruit right throughout history.
Cut an apple in half across its centre and you will reveal a five pointed star.
A lovely wood to use for wand making and a favourite tree of witches especially with its link to the autumn equinox and Samhain.
Excellent to use in any love spell workings or recipes but also for healing.
Eating an apple is said to open a portal into the other realms and allows us to gain clarity and knowledge.
Apples are also symbolic of abundance.
Apples are often connected with the mysteries of Avalon so work well in any incense blends or spell workings to connect with Avalonian deities. Apples are also considered the food of the dead so they are excellent to use in spirit work. Or maybe bake an apple pie and dedicate it to Avalon and eat to honour your ancestors.
Pick an apple and carve the initials of the one you desire and your own initials into the fruit, bury the apple in the ground to set your spell into motion.
Peel an apple in one long continuous piece then drop the peel, the letter that it forms is the initial of your true love’s name.
