“Your fertile inner strength, like that of the Willow,  is your inexhaustible flexibility to bend around obstacles.  Your desires can be woven into shape, as the Willow's pliable shoots are used to make baskets.  Magic wands are made from Willow, so what you have in mind has all the magical ingredients for success.  You can tell your secret to a Willow and make wishes.  The male and female catkins, which grow on separate trees, signify a lovers' meeting for you.  The bright-green leaves of Spring forecast celebrations, fresh opportunities, and speedy growth.  The honey-bearing catkins symbolize the wisdom of spiritual self-improvement, and sweet things for you.”
