    Highly toxic. All parts of the plant are extremely poisonous. Encourages astral projection and produces visions, but belladonna is best avoided. A primary ingredient in flying ointments. Used in funeral rituals to aspurge the circle, helping the deceased to let go and move forward. Used to invoke Circe. Gather berries when they are ripe (around Samhain.) Store with onyx. Medicinally, it has been used as a sedative.

    As every part of the plant is extremely poisonous, neither leaves, berries, nor root should be handled if there are any cuts or abrasions on the hands. The root is the most poisonous, the leaves and flowers less so, and the berries, except to children, least of all. It is said that an adult may eat two or three berries without injury, but dangerous symptoms appear if more are taken, and it is wiser not to attempt the experiment. Though so powerful in its action on the human body, the plant seems to affect some of the lower animals but little. Rabbits, sheep, goats and swine eat the leaves with impunity, and birds often eat the seeds without any apparent effect, but cats and dogs are very susceptible to the poison. -- Grieve's Modern Herbal

    Holly (Ilex aquifolium or I. opaca)
    Masculine. Mars. Fire. Deity: Holly King

    Protection,
    Anti-Lightning, Luck, Dream Magick. One of the best protective herbs.
    The wood of the holly is very well suited for the handle of the ritual
    knife as it both attracts and repels energies. It is powerful when
    defense is needed in circle while preserving the gentleness within it.
    Holly water is sprinkled on newborn babies to protect them. Carried by
    men, it promotes luck. (Ivy is the corresponding plant of luck for
    women). Decorate the house with it at Yule for good luck.


    After midnight on a Friday, without making a sound, gather nine holly
    leaves, preferably from a non-spiny plant (one that has smooth leaves).
    Wrap these up in a white cloth using nine knots to tie the ends
    together. Place this beneath your pillow, and your dreams will come
    true. -- Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs

    astral. Connects one with the mysteries of the Cauldron of Cerridwen. In
    ritual, dried, powdered bark may be used as incense.
