The Magick of Apple

Apple trees hold such rich symbolism in our culture and have inspired artwork, poetry, fairy tale and song throughout the ages. They are associated with the season of Samhain as their branches hang heavy with beautiful, nourishing fruits during this time.

From our native crab apple tree, over 6000 species of apple tree have evolved and their blossoms, leaves and fruits feed a vast amount of wildlife throughout the year.


Apple trees are a member of the very special Rosaceae family, that also includes Roses, Hawthorns, Rowans, Blackberries and Blackthorn. The blossom of many species within this family have 5 petals and if you have ever cut an apple in half horizontally you may have noticed the 5 pointed star at its core. This star is also present on the bottom of Hawthorn and Rowan berries and many believe that it is symbolic of the uniting of the 5 elements; earth, air, water, fire and spirit.

This family holds deep magick for this time of year, their branches hang abundant with rich fruits, a nourishing glut that supports life moving into the Winter months.

As we move towards Samhain, we felt pulled to work with this beautiful, protective wood in celebration of the energy of the season.

Mabon, Balance & Sun and Moon pendants

As we move towards Mabon, the festival marking the Autumn equinox in the Northern hemisphere, we leave behind the long days of Summer as day length slowly dwindles.

The word ‘equinox’ comes from the Latin word meaning ‘equal night’ and twice a year, on both the Spring and Autumn equinoxes, night and day length become equal. This can be a good time to pause and reflect on the balance in our own lives…
