Thus far, Saille, associated with the Willow, seems to be an appropriate symbol for the month.  The new moon was on the 25th, and my divorce was finalized on the 28th.  Willow is a tree of change and healing, and both have been abundant in the past few weeks.

Liz and Collin Murray make a strong connection between Saille and the high regard in which women were held amongst the Celts, noting in particular that they were able to own property.  Two weeks ago, the offer I put on my neighbor’s house was accepted.  Having the mortgage process well under way this month would be auspicious indeed!

I have been having some trouble in my relationship with Water, however, so I will seek Willow’s help to let my emotions flow freely so that they do not become stagnant or run the risk of breaking the dam, as it were.  Willow bends where the Oak stands strong.  This, too, is an important thing for me to remember, reinforcing the lessons of Ngetal (Reed) in April.
