the symbolism of oak:
the oak is the tree of communication par excellence with the divine. It connects the earth to heaven, but also links with the underground worlds, especially the elven kingdoms. It does not matter which deities you are attached to, it is the most sure way to make you heard (as long as it is not too young) even if by tradition it has its own deities.
Taranis celtic god of heaven and storm is the best known. the oak is the tree of communication par excellence with the divine. It connects the earth to heaven, but also links with the underground worlds, especially the elven kingdoms.

the powers of the oak are immense, the older he is, the more powerful he is.
here is a little ritual, with great power:
First you need to spot an oak tree at least 25 years old. To determine its age it is simple measure the turn of the trunk to 1m50 of the ground and divides it by 2.5. (60cm / 2.5 = 25.2)
Take off your shirt (nude or underwear it works better to you to see), close your eyes and lean against your trunk. Put your left hand on your heart and concentrate to hear the beating of your heart closing your eyes . Once you hear them, always with your eyes closed, repeat your words:
“Ego sum tua, tu es mea.
voluntas mea fiet quod tuum est.”
Make an offering. Then when you have decided invite your friend, your wife, your man (your ass plan) to lunch under the tree. Band him eyes and make love him or her back to the tree. you will live a great moment of ecstasy, very fertile
what to do for the feast of the oak:
Unfortunately not everyone lives near an oak grove, or in the countryside near a forest. Some online sites offer oak incense, you can buy it and burn it on your altar or anywhere in your house. you can drink a good wine in oak barrels during a meal and make a toast in his honor. you can buy acorns online in a pot (give it a name) or make a crown or talisman. drink oak leaf tea that you can find in an organic shop. you can also write him a poemequetunotera in your book of shadows.
for the lucky ones, take a stroll under an oak grove and greet each tree. organize a picnic, with your friends or your family (only that’s good too) make an offering to the one you prefer. You can choose to anchor, or pray to the soul of the tree. You can dance around an oak tree and laugh under its branches while singing:
“In the forest there is an old oak, A good old man made of wood of a bushy tree.
In the heart of the oak murmurs a fountain, A fountain that no one has ever seen.
At the heart of my friend’s heart the oak, At the heart of my dear friend’s heart, I know that sings a pure fountain,
Perhaps even a small stream. There are so many forests, there are so many streams, Here is my secret told me a bird.
2.One winter evening when the oak was sleeping One winter evening the forest was silent A frail bird smaller than a feather Below the bark came in I knew it.
And in the heart of my friend the oak, And in his heart that no one has ever seen, He rested at the edge of the fountain, And in his heart gently he drank ..
Before the sun goes down you can do a ritual in honor of wisdom and majesty, dressed in a crown of leaves and an acorn in your pocket.
here are some ideas for you to play.
