#Omens&Symbols . . . . Dew


“The herbalists went out in this morning twilight to collect healing plants or healing water from the spring. They went silently, in a meditative state and unseen;…. .
With their gaze directed to the east, while speaking of charm or prayer, the herbalists collected dewy herbs. Dew is considered pure, newly created matter. For the Celts, dew was a gift from the in-between world; it came neither from the earth, nor did it fall as rain from the clouds. The in-between world is a magical place, where nothing is yet fixed, but everything is possible — it is the in-between space in which healing can also take place.”
