Flax & The Matron Of Witches

Flax (in Hebrew pishtah, פשתה) is associated with the planet Mercury, the element fire, and the archetype Hulda.

Hulda is the name of the matron of witches, the matron of spinning and weaving flax to make linen, a protectress of souls both leaving and entering the world, a Biblical prophetess, and an Icelandic manuscript among The King's Sagas.

Hulda means "sacred spirit" (witchcraft), "weasel" (hebrew), "lovable" (old norse) and "hidden manuscript" (icelandic).

Pishtah פשתה has a total gematria of 785, a digit sum of 20, and a final digit sum of 2.

As a nutritional supplement, organic flax seeds deliver some of the highest concentrations of alpha linolenic acid (omega-3) and linolenic acid (omega-6) available in food. These two fatty-acids are important for cellular, heart and metabolic health.

Magickal uses of flax include spell"weaving", healing and protection against sorcery.
