The magic of Dahlias



Beauty, charm, dignity and grace,

stand tall and proud, life is no race.

Keep yourself in check, stay cool,

let others play the ignorant fool.

Don’t stoop down to their primitive level,

stay dignified, outwit the Devil.



We are not talking about tottering around in smart heels, a sharp suit and a fancy hat. What we are talking about here is acting in a dignified manner. How do you see yourself? Have you dealt with the situation with grace and dignity? Are you treating yourself and others involved with the respect that you and they deserve? If someone is yelling at you like a demented fish wife, it doesn’t mean you have to sink to their level and hurl language back that would make a sailor blush. We all get into a fix sometimes and it is very easy to say things that we don’t really mean or react in a manner that we wouldn’t normally do. Take a deep breath and just have a time out for a brief moment. Think about what you want from this and the best, most dignified way to resolve it. There will be a pathway that allows you to come out of it with your self-respect intact.



Such a noble and elegant flower can be used in workings for dignity and grace but also to allow us to stand tall and be proud of our achievements. It can help in magic for self-esteem and respect and aid us to see ourselves as others do and be impressed at what we find. It helps in protection spells against deceit, allowing you to see through the vails and masks of others.



Specifically, a single dahlia denotes good taste, a double dahlia means participation, variegated symbolises that the person is thinking of you all the time and a yellow one means that the giver

is very happy you love them. Although a slightly different spelling, ‘dalia’ is a Lithuanian goddess of fate.

Rachel is a witch...has been for a very long time, not the green skinned warty kind obviously...the real sort - but she is also a working wife and mother living in Hampshire, England who has also been lucky enough to write and have published a growing stack of books on the Craft. She loves to learn she loves to study and continues to do so each and every day but has learned the most from actually getting outside and doing it. She regularly gives talks and workshops at pagan events. Rachel is also founder and an Elder at the Kitchen Witch online school of witchcraft. She likes to laugh...and eat cake...
