There is a new Moon on 13th November 2012 at 22.08 BST
I expect that you have heard the sad struggle facing our ash trees. A friend of mine consulted Freya Aswynn, a writer, musician and expert on runes for some advice on a magickal working that can be done for to help the Ash Trees.

“The tree has an over soul. This has to be connected with,and fed life force, the same as in Reiki. Get a piece of Ash treat it as a limitless entity a fractal of the over soul and ‘Reiki’ it with Runes. There are some runes I am sure about could work.
One is Eihwaz the Rune of the Tree and Perthro as the Well, from which the Norns water the Tree.
Ahh obviously the more people do this at the same time every new or full moon. The better it is. So you may share this.”
To Reiki means that you just need to pass your hands over the pieces of tree bark and make the signs above.
I would add that if you do not have a piece of an ash tree you could use the image above. You do not have to do it at exactly 22.08 but any time over the next couple of days would be suitable.
Information on the Two Runes
Pronounced Yew – was – literally means “yew”.Eihwaz is indicative of the verticality and energy of the human spine.
The spine is the channel for one of the most powerful energy flows within the human psyche, the one that is called Kundalini ‘fire’. It is upward flow of energy up from the root (chakra) to the crown in the mind which brings about cosmic consciousness.
The needle of the Yew Tree is poisonous to us as it contains a toxin which adversely affects the nervous system. The Yew itself is an evergreen which easily conjures up associations of immortality and the mysteries of life and death. The great initiation into the mysteries of life is death as they are links in the same chain.
