Gender: Hot
Planet: Sun
Element: Fire
Part Used: The nut
Basic Powers: Fertility, Healing
Specific Uses: Carry the nut in its shell to promote fertility, to strengthen the heart, or to ward off rheumatism. Witches used to dance beneath walnut trees in their rites, although this has fallen into disues. Because of the Witches' activities under the walnut trees, folk people began viewing them with suspicion, hence its old folk name, "Tree of Evil." To find out if a person is a Witch drop a walnut on the lap of the suspected party. If he or she is a Witch they will be unable to rise from the chair. This was one of the methods of testing Witches during the Persecution. Eat walnuts to cure madness.
