The Hazel Moon was known to the Celts as Coll, which translates to "the life force inside you" . . . This is the time of year when Hazelnuts are appearing on the trees, and are an early part of the harvest.
Hazelnuts are also associated with wisdom and protection . . . Hazel is often associated in Celtic lore with sacred wells and magical springs containing the salmon of knowledge.
This is a good month to do workings related to wisdom and knowledge, dowsing and divination, and dream journeys . . . If you're a creative type, such as an artist, writer, or musician, this is a good month to get your muse back, and find inspiration for your talents. Even if you normally don't do so, write a poem or song this month.
