Hmm… I’ve never really thought about the correspondences of an olive or olive tree in magick The one thing that immediately comes to my mind is the phrase “olive branch” in terms of arguments and disagreements. You know, the one about extending an olive branch – I think it comes from the Bible, that I know of. In this case, I would imagine anything relating to olives would have to do with peace and overcoming challenges.
So, I did some digging… (and I also didn’t know we had an olive emoji lol) and here’s what I found from various sources online!
