magpie & the dandelion

anonymous asked:

Do you know some of the properties of dandelions or what they could represent

Hello there friend.

Dandelions as a whole could be used to contact spirits, for clairvoyance, dreams, psychic powers, healing and purification. 

Specifically dandelion leaf is used for summoning spirits, healing, purification and defeating negativity. Use in sachets and charms to make wishes come true.

The root is used for to help divination, wishes and calling spirits. Use in dream pillows & sachets for sleep protection. Bury on northwest side of house to draw good luck.

With luck, Magpie.

Mending & Concerned | March 21, 2014

This is first image in a series of images to come that will change the environment for the Magpie and the Dandelion.

Here you see the Magpie in her nest. The Dandelion tending. An image of transition, as all things do shift and change, after all.

This is an ongoing project exploring visual representation of self in correlation with emotion and mood.
