Anecdotal: The down of Cirsium is spun with juniper for weaving. Its blossoms are placed on graves to protect the deceased’s journey against predacious spirits. The leaves and root can be strewn around the house to guard against malevolent spirits and placed in bath water for the same purpose, especially before feasts. The spirit within Cirsium is invoked to address spiritual pain and resulting endopsychic wounds. It exorcises malevolent spirits believed responsible for stealing visions, songs and self-expression as well as those suspected of causing weakness that has no visible cause. It is feminine, distinctly associated with abundance and circumstantial or ritual birth, death and rebirth.
