Magical Uses For Dandelions: Dandelion Correspondences

Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

Dandelions are a wonderful addition to any witch’s garden, and their magickal uses are many. Dandelion magick is all about the sun. Dandelions are one of the first flowers out in spring and they stay until fall. Dandelion roots dig deep into the ground, bringing up the vital energies of Mother Earth. The white puffy prominent blooms blow in the breeze, catching headwinds around the world and spreading abundantly.

Dandelions add a little bit of sunshine to every spell, but they have even more uses than that. They are also used for protection from dark magic or spirits that seek to harm us. Their magical correspondences are many, including: fire (the sun), earth (the root system) air (the seeds floating on the wind), protection, happiness, masculine energy, the planet Jupiter, good luck, and wishes granted.

Add a handful of dandelions to any spell for an extra burst of solar power. Dandelions are also used in money and prosperity spells, as their abundance is said to represent wealth.

The correspondences of this plant depend on which part of the plant you use. The flower can be associated with love, healing, strength, courage, joyfulness, hope, friendship, loyalty, and faith.

Using Dandelion’s Roots In Witchcraft

The roots, digging deep into Mother Earth and pulling her energy up to greet the sun, are excellent for ritual work involving grounding, stability and centering. Dandelion root is also invoked for purifying and cleansing, as well.

To remove the influence of negative entities, wear dandelion root, carry roots in your hand or place them at the corners of rooms and doorways. Additionally, cleansing baths are also wonderful when crafted with this plant’s earthy elements.

Ground yourself with a simple dandelion root tea, or find stability by burying roots removed from the stalk and sitting over the spot it was buried while meditating.

Collect puffballs through spring and summer and blow the seeds in the wind to release your wishes to the universe. For luck, carry a dandelion puff ball in your pocket or keep one near your front door. To increase happiness, put a few seeds around your home or place of work. For protection, carry them with you when travelling and sprinkle some around your property.

If you want to use dandelion puff balls for divination, write your question on a piece of paper and very gently place it plus the seed head into a pouch. Sleep with the puff ball next to your pillow and in the morning, blow the seeds into the air. Your dreams will be prophetic for a number of days after.

To use dandelion puff balls for communication, whisper what you need to tell another person into the puff ball and release the seeds. The message will be carried on the wind to them.
