Tree of the week – Gorse

Beautiful Gorse

This is Gorse, which you see everywhere at the moment, it’s sunny blossoms opening up, and the heady aroma of Spring reaches the nostrils as we walk the downs.
Gorse is a hardy shrub, withstanding the blustery sea winds, its thorns protecting tiny birds who can nest in a dense, golden haven.

The Ogham symbol for Gorse is this.Ohn - Gorse

The mantra is Onn. Onn is a symbol of sunshine and hope. We can connect to the energy of Gorse when we have been through devastating trauma. Onn gives us hope, peaceful resignation and patience. It is a good symbol to use after severe illness, bringing sunshine and healing to anyone who has suffered.
