Leaf Meaning: The aspen leaf has many magical associations, from the mesmerising whispering sounds of the leaves as the wind blows that had an enchanting effect, to the shape of the round leaves that offer a shield of protection and prevention from harm stemming from the Greek meaning of aspen as a ‘shield’. Most inspiring is the fae legend where the aspen tree is seen as the ‘faerie tree’, where a portal to the faerie world is rumoured to be, and a single aspen leaf was said to have been placed under the tongue to achieve eloquence.
