PostSubject: THE LEGEND OF THE WOOD SPIRIT    Wed Feb 20, 2013 4:53 pm

It goes by several names: Wood Spirit, Wild Man, Savage Man, Woodwose. Whatever you call it, the next time you are strolling through the woods, keep an eye out for one of these elusive creatures.

Most often glimpsed as a green man with leaves for his beard and hair, the Wood Spirit is said to be Lord of the Forest and Natural Things. Seeing one is said to be quite a lucky thing, and European villagers used to go out on regular hunts, hoping to find a Wood Spirit to foretell the future of their village.

They are extremely strong. Wood Spirits can tear an opponent limb from limb and can tame any wild animal, including ferocious dragons and skittish unicorns. At the same time, they are gentle with the maidens, children, and men of good heart.

It is said that the forest will stand for as long as the Wood Spirit remains to keep order. And if you're lucky enough to see one, health happiness, and good fortune will be yours. However, that does not happen often. Wood Spirits would rather see than be seen. Most sightings are by children or by the pure of heart.

When you take your Wood Spirit home, give it a place of honor. Include the Wood Spirit in the audience when you tell jokes (Wood Spirits have a delightful sense of humor). If you do these things, your Wood Spirit will bring his gentle wisdom, humor, and luck into your home. Enjoy!

As you say, Faerielass, the Wood Spirit goes under many names including the Green Man, one of our oldest pagan gods. Often shown as a head with leaves sprouting from both mouth and nose. He is the wild, untamed spirit of Nature, a reminder of our remote past yet still with lessons to teach us now. He is the wild and fertile force behind all natural growth, the divine impulse of creation, not under the control of Man. In the past, he was respected and honoured, and people worked in harmony with nature and lived according to Nature's cycles. Today mankind has lost respect for nature and seeks to control and defeat it. This is causing dire consequences for both the planet and our spiritual well-being.
Carvings of the head are seen in many old Saxon churches, carved by the pagan masons into the structure.
Here he is in my Tarot [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I use the Sacred Circle tarot, based on Celtic mythology.
