In the tree ogham, Huathe is associated with the Hawthorn, the tree of cleansing and challenge. That pretty much sums up what the month of May has been so far. The court date for my divorce, the selling of the condo, on one hand, and on the other, two new jobs and a renewed joy in life. I performed the Ovate Rite of Liberation at Beltaine, releasing all the resentment and pain I had carried from the past. I hope I have learned the lessons of these tree well.
