Tree properties - Walnut

Botanical name: Juglans regia

Other names:
Jupiter's nuts

Name origins: The generic name "juglans" comes from the Latin "Jovis glans" which translates as "Jupiter's nuts". This is because it is said that in the "golden age" men lived on acorns and the gods lived on walnuts.

The common name "walnut" is derived from the Teutonic "welsche nuss" meaning "foreign nuts".

Folklore: It was thought that witches used to meet and dance beneath walnut trees. The nuts were also carried for fertility and to ward off rheumatism.

Magickal uses: Walnut is a powerful tree and it helps those who feel they know their true path but cannot quite take the final step. It aids adjustment to changes in life and helps us let go of the past and old ties. A tree of intuition, the Walnut helps us to listen to our inner self.
