Do trees talk to each other? Well hello Uranus in Taurus: Trees Talk To One Another and scientists say so. I knew it. Their roots communicate with mysterious underground networks, dragon lines, vortex energies, and memories held deep in the earth.
Their leaves transmit and receive messages carried in the breezes; they understand the language of the birds and electricity. Each tree comes from a different genre or family of deities and nature spirits.
Okay, scientists don’t say all that – they talk in terms of networks and pheromones, scent signals and complex responses to stimuli but still, this article will blow your mind. It’s undoubtedly secured my eco-resolve for Uranus in Taurus, now only weeks away. It’s quintessence, literally 5th element, also known as Dark Matter. Scientists are trying to measure it, the shamans and priestesses of old already did.
Two thoughts: This is evocative of all the old stories, of how certain types of fig trees were said to be gates to the underworld or power points where meditation would be extraordinarily fruitful, or grounding and every tree had its dryad. And who cannot recall walking through a forest as a child, sensing the majestic presence those rooted there?
But…this is making me squeamish about the floorboards in my house, my kitchen table with the runes carved into it. Is wood to trees as ‘beef’ is to cows? Or do trees turned into wood or paper somehow live on? Like when you snip a leaf off a still growing plant?
And seriously, if you were never going to harm a tree (or any sentient being) what would the material of choice be? If you were to be eco-theist, is the only right solution to live among the trees? Or is there a super-innovative way around all this?
