Apples #octoberoracle

What better talisman for October/Halloween than apples? The old name for Apple is Silver Bough, because apples were believed to grow on the silver bough of the underworld and held the power of immortality.

Apples have a long tradition with Samhain/Halloween, in fact it used to be called the Festival of Apples.

Apples were believed to give trees life, and if cut vertically, can look like the womb, which is why they have long been associated with fertility. Avalon, the famous land of king Arthur and legend, actually means ‘Isle of Apples.’ And of course there is Eve who was banished from the Garden of Eden after eating an apple.

Go ahead and have some forbidden fruits this October and maybe these shiny red talismans will gift you with esoteric knowledge straight from the orchards of the underworld.
