Moon phase altar plaque I made while I was sick a few weeks ago. Wood burned, painted, stained, and varnished.

I’ve decided to create a set of runes from the apple tree in my backyard. I’ve known it my whole life, and I feel a calming bond with it. I have asked its permission for a branch, and it has given me its consent.

However, I do know that my father trimmed it during the fall, and that we still have branches from it in a pile in our garden. I’m torn between cutting it myself, or using one from the pile. My concern is that the tree might have been unhappy with the trimming, and therefore the branches might not be viable. I dunno, I just feel that I’d be upset if someone cut off my branches without asking me first.

What should I do - cut a branch myself, or use one of the already cut branches?

Out of curiosity, are runes used in the same aspect as tarot cards? I’m reading the old Icelandic poem, but I’m not sure of their use beyond that hunch. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I’ve picked up some Rosemary, Cloves, and Marjoram last week to start my herb collection. I only had $7 on me, so I feel I did pretty well.

Rosemary - Protection, Love, Sleep, Healing, Purification [Masculine, Sun, Fire]

Clove - Protection, Exorcism, Love [Masculine, Jupiter, Fire]

Marjoram - Protection, Love, Healing [Masculine, Mercury, Air]

I’m still looking into the Planet/M or F/Elements, so if you feel one is incorrect, let me know!
