Spiritual Meaning Ogham Ivy

Search for self. Personal Development and transformation. The spirals of life as opposed to the cycles. Tenacity, ruthlessness, achievement restriction.

Medicinal and Magical Uses Ivy

In ancient times Ivy was made into a highly potent ale which was used in conjunction with hallucinogenic mushrooms to whip up a state of frenzy and induce vision. (Bit like the South American Awawoska.)  Please don’t try this at home! It contains Hederin, which is highly poisonous.  The purpose of this was to search the soul. It’s supposed to be good for a hangover or to sober you up. Small amounts of an Ivy tea are said to dilate blood vessels, while large amounts can cause them to contract. Don’t touch the berries! They are poisonous. An Ivy tonic can also be used for whooping cough and respiratory ailments.

Ogham Ivy Spiritual and Magical Meaning

The spiraling nature of the way Ivy grows is symbolic of the spiral of the self.  Spiraling inward and outward, seeking enlightenment and companionship. It’s characteristics include binding, restricting, attachment, freedom, uniting and linking with others.  It is also associated with fertility because of its rapid growth.

Ivy was considered the feminine energy while Holly was considered male. Both herbs featured in Yule (Alban Arthen) celebrations and in wedding wreaths for the bride and groom. Bards were given a crown of Ivy to give them honor.

(When Christianity emerged, the early council tried to ban the use of Ivy in decoration because of its Pagan association  – and yet we often see Jesus wearing a crown of Ivy and/or thorns?)

Ivy lore is associated with the Goddess of rebirth.  It is seen as a plant of the Other-worlds and communicating with them.  It is also associated with the Greek God of wine and fertility Dionysus, often seen covered in ivy and grape vines.

If a girl carries Ivy in her pocket she will soon meet her future husband. It can be used to banish the negative things from your life, and eliminate toxic relationships. Look inward to find self-growth, but turn outward to find spiritual companionship with like minded people. If Ivy appears in your life think about joining a spiritual group. –  © Jyoti Eagles
